  • Colgate 2019-20

    I see more of the same for this year, almost named the thread that but figured it was inappropriate. Looks like we have a few decent kids coming in, I guess we need someone, maybe McMann to step up, nine goals doesn't cut it as the top scorer. Last year was abysmal, we need to find some scoring somewhere. We can only hope.

    I'm very optimistic about our new recruiter Riley, can he be our savior, three recruits already in his first few months on the job, let's beat RIT Saturday night and get off on the right foot.

    I'd also like to hear some info on our frosh, what can we expect ?
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    Separate subject... does anybody keep track of goalie Colton Point’s progress, post-‘Gate?

      Last year I looked periodically, first he was with Texas AHL, then down to ECHL and injured, then I kinda lost track, will look now.

        Here's an off season piece on his rough introduction to the pro ranks... I expect he'll have better success this year... a year older, stronger, wiser.

          We're just 1 day away from the having Colgate hockey back in our lives!

          I'm not going to sugarcoat it. Last season was an unmitigated disaster. In fact, we've had THREE "unmitigated disaster" seasons since we last made it to Lake Placid in March 2015 (with 2017-18 being the exception). The BIG question is (and has been since 2016 when Darcy Murphy, Mike Borkowski, and the Spink twins graduated): "where are the goals going to come from"?

          I think last season we hit bottom. We were WELL UNDER 2 goals/game. There's nowhere to go but up. At the end of last season I thought this program was at a crossroads. In the offseason, the assistant coaching staff was overhauled. I have faith that new assistant coach Brett Riley will significantly impact our recruiting and get us the talented players we've longed for. We've had 3 new recruits since his hire, and even though they won't arrive until at least 2021, I suspect we'll see some of his recruits as early as next season, as we only have 5 players signed on for 2020 and we're losing 8 after this season. I'm going to pack my patience and hope that by the 2021-22 season, we're at or near the top of the ECAC standings.

          In the meantime, I hope Brett Riley's knowledge has a positive impact on our current players and motivates them to succeed. I hope to make it to one of the games at UMass Lowell this month. Go 'Gate.

            RIP Robin Jaycox. Colgate hockey would not have made the strides it did in the late 1970's early 80's if not for him. Coach Slater's right hand man - a twin in significance to Admissions Director Dave Perham!
            I've been lost since 1989. I got a breakaway on a river and have been skating ever since!

              That is sad news.

                  He was a ubiquitous presence around campus even when I was there, '68 - '72...and for those of us who suffered mightily during the '70-'71 season through Terry's first year ('77-'78) the next 25 years or so brought excitement and good success...hopefully we can restart again soon...yes, 55 goals in 36 games is jaw-dropping and we really need some of our frosh forwards to contribute immediately...one Young brother is coming this year, an even better one (so they say) next year...an upgrade in speed is needed as well...I do hear that our young assistants have not only notched a few recruiting wins so far, but some needed enthusiasm to the program...I think 15-21-3 is doable (TheCoat feels optimistic this morning)...and thanks Shabby for starting another thread...GO 'GATE

                        It appears as if sarcasm has replaced optimism.

                          To be fair, our problems are so substantial they cannot be cured overnight.

                          I still choose optimism . . . long term.

                            How did the boys look last night? Obviously they lost but I saw they outshot RIT by 20. Any hope going forward?

                              Yes. The season is young.
