What a joke:

Leading the nation with 69 points wasn't enough to get the University of Michigan's T.J. Hensick into the top three for college hockey's top honor.

His hopes for winning the Hobey Baker Award ended with Wednesday night's announcement of the "Hobey Hat Trick" by the foundation that administers the award.

The three finalists are North Dakota forward Ryan Duncan, Notre Dame goalie David Brown and Air Force forward Eric Ehn, who is a native of Dexter. All three are invited to the April 6 presentation ceremony in St. Louis, on the off day at the Frozen Four.

I am beginning to agree with the more paranoid factions of the Michigan fanbase that think the college hockey establishment is out to get Michigan. Duncan plays on a line with two first-round draft picks who have more talent than him and has twelve fewer points than Hensick. Ehn has five fewer and plays in Atlantic Hockey, the college hockey equivalent of the Sun Belt. (Brown probably deserves to be in the final three if any goalie other than the snubbed Jeff Jakatis does.) What a travesty. The Heisman of college hockey indeed: it's just as credible.
