    Just looked at college hockey stats. Owen Savory is dead last in gaa and save %. So what’s the thought on that? Overrated as a goalie? Over the past few years we have had goalies that lit it up for a year or so but quickly faded. Think Marshall and now Savory. His transfer will likely end any hope for his playing after college?
    I have not watched any UML games, but judging solely on their thread posts the ENTIRE team has played poorly...with many references to flat out bad play by their D corps. I have no doubt that Owen wishes he's had better outcomes, he is as big of a competitor as you'll find, but there's a reason they call it a team game. If you were consistently facing odd man rushes, killing penalties and playing in front of a porous defence, you'd have crappy numbers too. I think Lowell is averaging something like 11 penalty kill minutes per game.

      FWIW, Lovisa Selander apparently was able to overcome all of that.

        • I agree. Having watched hockey for over 50 years, I have seen a lot of lousy teams who looked very respectable because they had a great goalie. RPI has had more than a few teams that match that description. Ralph offers a very good example with Selander. If Savory was that good, the Freshman who has played many of the games to date would be watching and learning from Savory. The team is the same team for him. Marshall was the star and , I believe, an NHL draft pick. And now....

            • Owen picked up a 3-1 win tonight over a truly bad UVM team. He only faced 11 shots in the road game. Tristan Ashbrook played but did not pick up points. IIRC he's a right shot but MTU had him playing the off-wing tonight.

                  Tristan is a very good forward. He can play every forward position, and his new Coach has played him in all three forward positions since arriving. Regardless of being a right shot, playing all forward positions is something all forwards should learn to do, adding value and versatility to their team.

                  • On Saturday, S-Kiekko defeated Muik Hockey 9-3. Ottoville Leppänen had 3 goals and 2 assists. :-) http://www.tilastopalvelu.fi/ih/game...=54732&lang=en

                    Leppänen's line is now 2-4-2-6-0.

                          He may be too good for this league. :-) I suspect that better ones would be pro.

                              At the very least, it keeps him in shape and let's him play hockey consistently.

                                I certainly agree. It's too bad that there are no similar leagues in North America.
