So, I was a little off in my picks. First off, I had Scofield instead of Read. Both players are deserving of it, as Read had one more point than Scofield…but Scofield had eight more goals. Overall, I can understand either one of them.
The second difference was I had Bostock at ‘D’ and Denny Urban got it. Urban had 26 points, Bostock had 16. I said at the beginning of the week that I thought Bostock was a bit better in the “D” zone. I’ll stick with that assessment.
The third change was in goal. Dalton had better numbers in every category except saves percentage (.926 to .924) in CHA games only. In ALL games, Pags was better by a margin of .923 to .915. Dalton was better in every other category, though.
I’ve heard the comment that Pags is a senior while Dalton is a sophomore…but Scofield is a senior and Read is a sophomore. Bostock is also a senior, while Urban is a sophomore. So if you go by that logic, Bostock and Scofield should have been first team’ers too…and I would have only been off on one pick.
I’m biased because it’s me…but I like my ballot better than the “official” one!
