  • Re: St. Lawrence University: Big Time, Old Time Hockey 2014-15

    Looking forward to some exciting games in the North Country this weekend, especially Gate-SLU. The Saints always scare me, and have had 'Gate's number for several years running. I used to root for the Larries back in the day at MSG during the Holiday Tournament when they made an appearance. In fact - until I until I underwent a Red Raider transplant - I was always rooting for the Saints in hockey. So this weekend is huge. I hope to stream it and see a real competitive contest. I never believed those preseason media and coaches polls that had SLU down near the bottom. I think you guys have a much better club than you've shown.

      I am not sure we are better than we have shown. We have beat some good teams and in most of our losses we beat ourselves and deserved to lose by either our mistakes, not being able to score, or, in a few cases, bad officiating. But, we are a team with a good trajectory and based on our youth and the fact that a few of our elite players have been slumping or injured, I expect us to get better this season and be even better next season. Plus, given that Hayton weighs about 130 pounds, he is not a flight risk no matter how good he is until he can gain a lot of muscle mass. I don't think any other guys are big flight risks either.

      What I am not happy about is after seeing the highlights Carvy sent out from this past weekend, that goal the ref waived off on Friday definitely should have counted. It appears Marnell had his back to the shooter negating the possibility of batting it in. That changes the outcome of Friday's game. Since I still believe Horn scored in the first, maybe that would have changed Saturday too.

      Points against Colgate and Cornell are massively important as those are two teams I expect to be competing with for seeding at the end of the season. We better be ready and shake off this slump.

          I was too until this weekend. I'm 4-0 though of SLU being the better team...but I'd rather have wins.

            I'm actually quite the opposite. The past three years the team is 0-13 (not a joke either!) in games I have attended. This is since I decided to buy a new home SLU jersey to replace my older worn jersey. We call it the curse of the jersey and unfortunately it's either continue to wear it to the games I attend and eventually break the so called "curse" or stop wearing it all together ... Either way, I don't know what it is about me, maybe it's just a weird coincidence ... I hope?

                  I've been going to Clarkson's games at Cornell and Colgate for several years, and have not seen a win since 2008! A few ties, but no wins. Perhaps you and I should go to the Clarkson-SLU game - it would be a guaranteed tie!

                    Two big games for the Saints this weekend. Let's hope they can come away with some big wins!

                      You just need to show up for the Clarkson/SLU games and then I'll be happy! We are beyond due against you guys, especially lately!!

                        W/ visions of 360 degree turns on Route 81 I wisely elected to forgo a N.C. trip this afternoon

                        In the process, by my absence, insuring a Larry victory over the despised Cornellians.

                        Hopefully we can maintain our poise for the next 45 minutes.

                            Btw, there is 7:00 left in the 1st period against Cornell and we look VERY good so far ... The best I have seen us play all season ... It's 2-0 Saints already!

                              Points will be very tough to come by in the next three games. Tonight was important - really good win.

                                That was a very big win for the guys tonight ... We needed that one to snap this nasty funk we have been in and to get two huge points in the ECAC standings. Tomorrow will be a tall task, but one I know with a great effort they can pull it off ... Way to go Saints, let's keep this up!
