    Re: Quinnipiac Bobcats 2019 ~ 2020 Season

    Well... saw a lot to look forward to. Most of the new kids look solid. I was NOT impressed by the effort of Petruzelli. Once agin, he seemed to have a confidence problem after giving up a fluke goal (clearly not his fault). After that he was shaky at best. Evan Fear looked strong in relief in the 3rd and the team battled back to tie a game that they clealry could have and should have won.

    I find it interesting that the season's opening weekend with AIC looms extremely large in terms of what this season will be. Anything less than a sweep could be devastating right out of the gate. I think we can survive a split but getting swept might just put us in a hole that will be hard to climb out of.

    Anyway, it was great to be back at the rink and I do feel we have a legitimate shot to make some noise this season. Hopefully, the new guys will find their legs quickly and adapt to the systems. The upperclassmen need to come out of the gate strong and lead by example.

    Like I said, lot's to look forward to... now they just need to put it all together on the ice.

      Mark my words....Fear is going to push Petruzzelli maybe even split time with him.

        Hopefully Rand accomplished some of what he wanted and keeping Odeen away from the goons from the north was a smart move. These freshman will be very good and hopefully will gel together. I also like the size of these kids, much bigger than we are used to. They will battle with the heavy teams well.

        I agree witth QUAlum that Fear will push KP and we’ll probably see some platooning, maybe even this weekend. Fear had NO FEAR in his eyes in goal. Even after a barrage and tough save he was joking with officials. KP looked like he was guessing at times.

        Looking forward to seeing Tufto back out there this weekend. Is it Friday yet?

          This might be the biggest Bobcat team... can't remember seeing so many at or over 6'.

          Have no fear, Evan is here!

          Agree on the platooning... don't see any other choice as these early games are crucial for pairwise.

          KP seems to fall apart when the team is chasing a lead.

            Tufto was not a healthy scratch from what I heard. Minor injury nothing serious....Interesting to see if he is available against AIC.

                Mark - that is very good point. Been saying for years they need to get bit bigger...love what I was able to see the last period...especially with our Captain....

                        Not bad for the first real game of the season. AIC is certainly a much improved team compared to previous years. I thought the first was pretty even, maybe even a slight advantage to the Yellow Jackets, but we were able to get a lead going into the 1st intermission. The first half of the 2nd belonged to the Bobcats and Petruzelli was fantastic, making some huge saves to preserve the lead. The 3rd was fairly even and AIC threw everything they had at us over the last few minutes with the goalie pulled.

                        The power play looked good but they need to shoot more. Get pucks on net and hope for the rebounds.

                        Tomorrow night should be a tighter, more physical game.

                          The biggest thing is this is a real win because AIC should be a very good Atlantic Hockey team this year. That is a well coached team with some good talent. Really thought KP played well this game. Made some huge saves. The goals really weren't his fault. Really kept QU in this game at times especially in the 2nd period.

                            Pretty good effort for the opener, thought some of the freshmen looked dynamic. KP was fine, made some good saves, also had some moments where it just looked like he was a little unfocused. Still wouldn't be surprised to see him lose the starting role by the time we get to March.

                            I like the early returns so far -- this team has the potential to be really good again.

                            Just want to take a moment to note how nice it is to see AIC finally taking hockey seriously. When I was a student, they were the laughingstock of D-1 -- pretty much the worst team in college hockey every year, drawing less than 500 fans to home games, they just had no chance to compete. So it's really nice to see them on the upswing after what happened last year.

                                Nice sweep on the weekend. AIC is a good team too and those will probably end up being key wins at the end of the season.
