Pos. Player, Team The Dean's Take
G John Muse
Boston College
You've got to give him a lot of credit, as young as he is, the way he came through. He showed great poise, patience and presence in the net, and he certainly led his team.
D Mike Brennan
Boston College
I've liked him every time I've seen Boston College play. He moves the puck well and sees the ice well, and those are two of the most important traits you look for in defensemen.
D Kyle Lawson
Notre Dame
I sat behind him for two periods. He's a big, steady, strong defenseman and definitely the kind of kid you want to anchor your defense. I also liked what he does killing penalties.
F Kevin Deeth
Notre Dame
I really liked his presence. He seemed to be around the puck all the time in both games, and that's something you really want is somebody who's on the puck all the time.
F Ben Smith
Boston College
He is a very solid player who knows his role in the offensive scheme and plays it perfectly. I liked the way he and Gerbe worked together out there. You could see real hockey chemistry.
F Nathan Gerbe
Boston College
Most Outstanding Player
Brian Gionta reincarnated. The toughest thing for Notre Dame, and you heard this in the crowd, was that he didn't win the Hobey, because that just gave him more incentive. He's going to be a good player on the next level. His size shouldn't matter when you play with that kind of heart.
