What do you think? Visit Vote for Hobey and cast your ballot every day

Inside College Hockey 's Go-To Guys – a look at who deserves individual honors in college hockey – returns for the 2004-05 season to find a wide-open field in the race for the Hobey Baker Memorial Trophy.

Inside College Hockey editors and staff, in consultation with coaches and media from around the country, compiled this list of how we would vote today – not necessarily how we think the races will turn out. And stay tuned, because a lot can change each weekend; we'll continue our looks at the Hobey, and other honors, as the season progresses.

HOBEY BAKER AWARD – Jan. 25, 2005
1. Marty Sertich
Colorado College
How do you pick between Sertich and linemate Brett Sterling? We like Sterling's pluck, but Sertich is the Tigers' catalyst.
26 GP, 19-26—45
2. Patrick Eaves
Boston College
He doesn't have the gaudiest numbers, but that could soon change. Eaves has four goals and seven assists in the Eagles' last five games.
21 GP, 11-19—30
3. Brett Sterling
Colorado College
Sterling, the nation's co-leader in goals, has been in a mini-slump as of late, with just three points in the Tigers' last five contests.
26 GP, 20-20—40
4. T.J. Hensick
Scary thought: Hensick has 16 goals, but might be the country's best passer. He's scored two or more points in eight of his last nine games played.
23 GP, 16-19—35
5. David McKee
Detractors say he doesn't face many shots, but he stops the ones he sees. McKee gives the Big Red a chance to win every night – he's allowed a total of eight goals in his four losses.
13-4-2, 1.47 GAA, .933 sv%
Poised to change on the fly Sean Collins (New Hampshire), Danny Irmen (Minnesota), Jared Ross (Alabama-Huntsville), Ryan Shannon (Boston College), Ben Walter (UMass Lowell)
On the radar Preston Callander (New Hampshire), Dov Grumet-Morris (Harvard), Scott Mifsud (Vermont), Ryan Potulny (Minnesota), Tuomas Tarkki (Northern Michigan)
