The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: UAA

Following up the UND Hottie Review, we look all the way up to Anchorage to see if, after one hundred years behind the mask, we've got any hotties.

The Good
RWD has always loved UAA goaltender Nathan Lawson, and this year is no exception. Who could resist that mischievous smile? Another perennial Hottie is Merit Waldrop, who is still hott, although he's looked better. He's lucky, since we've already seen it's not easy to stay on the Hottie list.
Someone who has flown beneath the Hott Radar but suddenly appeared as a contact is junior Peter Cartwright. Rounding out the Good list are freshmen Ryan Berry, who reminds me of Mark McGrath, and Ken Selby, even though he looks a little scary with his boot camp haircut and thousand-yard stare.
I will say this, all the Seawolves looked sharp in their pictures. They might not have looked attractive, but they were all dressed nicely and looked very professional.

The Bad
Oh, there were a lot of them that didn't quite cut it. Charlie Kronschnabel has been on the bubble for the past few seasons. If it wasn't for that 5:00 shadow, Chris Tarkir might have made the cut. If his cheeks were just a touch less chubby, Mike Rosset could have made it. Next year could be Mat Robinson's year. If only Jay Beagle had just smiled.
Following with the "It's bad to look like a celebrity" theme, Chad Anderson bears a striking resemblance to David Duchovny. And in the weird hair category, we have Paul Crowder.
And there were some that didn't leave an impression. Kevin Clark, Nils Backstrom, Josh Lunden, Jon Olthuis, Trevor Hunt, or Jared Tuton, for example, which is understandable, since they're freshmen. Don't worry guys, this league will make men out of you, just wait and see. That doesn't excuse Shane Lovdahl or Adam Corrin.
Finally, there were some that didn't even come close to making it. Like, Luke Beaverson. Or the pasty Mark Smith. Maybe Justin "Soul Patch" Bourne. Thuggish Blair Tassone. Nick Lowe.

The Ugly
There weren't any horribly offensive pictures this year, so the Seawolves squeaked by without any Uglies. Lucky for them.

I think the best looking UAA player would have to be Merit Waldrop. The picture you have seen must not have been very flattering, because in real life he is gorgeous.

Hey, he's still in the Good list, AND was a WCHA All-Hottie honoree, so don't worry.

Photo evidence is always accepted to further prove your point.

How can someone say that beaverson and tassone are not on the hott list they are so dreamy and doesnt tassone look like Vin Diesel and beaverson somehow reminds me Matthew MacConaughey mmm i love those guys and how is Waldrop on the hot list i guess if you like Aaron Carter then he would, but im not into little boys so he would not be on my Hot list.

Agreed on Lawson. He may be a whiny little bitch, but he's hot! It's awesome when he takes off his helmet... Doesn't matter how hot and sweaty he gets, because he hair will always stand straight up. Frickin' awesome.
