Wohlberg and Guptill honored by CCHA; Hunwick for Hobey?

David Wohlberg was named the Offensive Player of the Week by the CCHA, while Alex Guptill was named the Rookie of the Week. What's up with the rest of the CCHA that our players keep winning these things?

Also, you can vote for the Hobey Baker here:

I already gave it away, but our nominee is Shawn Hunwick (!?) Am I crazy or is this crazy? I miss having multiple nominees but having a shot at the tourney is much more important and somehow this team still has that shot. Thoughts?

Somewhat unrelated, but I just noticed at the end of the first link: They're broadcasting the Frozen Diamond Faceoff on FSD Plus? Really? No BTN love or even regular FSD?

Does anyone remember what channel the Big Chill was on? (actual question)

That unfortunately seems like a lot to ask. Glendening needs a spark, and Sparks needs a... spark

But the PP seems like it never picks up, even when we have players that are supposed to score 100 goals a season. If I had to choose, I would rather the PK learn how to get the damn puck out of the zone (and keep it out of the net) first. Merrill should help that (please god).

However, the fact that no one has very many goals, but many people have some goals, is pretty good in a different way. I like the distribution. Now, if one person goes on a hot streak and the others keep it up, we could be unstoppable.

And the funny thing is, last year's team was much more infuriating because we were losing when we weren't supposed to. The Friday night woes (or was it Saturday?) really made me angry. That team made the NCG. Not bad.
