          Very impressive job by the team and great start for the the freshmen.

          The refs have no sense of humor. Since when was the time-honored tradition of throwing a hat onto the ice after a hat trick (and one by a freshman in his first game no less) fallen by the wayside?
          Hockey is life, the rest is just details!

              I'd like to see 10 tonight.

              I was so excited to see Jooris score a hat trick, his parents were thrilled and as a freshman, he should use last night to motivate his success for the rest of the season. Carr's goal over the cross-bar was a great one!

              I thought Mat Bodie was pretty solid last night, too. The defense as a whole was a bit confused at the beginning, they were caught running a few times, but the offense took over.

              It is always nice to start the season with a win but let's hope they don't get cocky.

                Good all around game last night, I hope they can put up a similar effort tonight.

                I'm impressed with the freshmen that played. Carr's shot on that goal was awesome, and that line worked really well. Congrats to Jooris and hopefully he can keep putting points up. They both look like solid contributors. Bodie looked talented rushing the puck up the ice, I think he will be a huge player for us in the future.

                    Very good effort lastnight indeed, especially after having a mental lapse they came back strong and hammered down another win. Looking foward to see how they do next weekend with a stronger opponent.

                      Could we have asked for a better opening weekend? 16 goals??? Are you kidding me??? I have to say that I am very impressed, despite the weak opponent. Then again, Sacred Heart beat us in a heartbreaker last season so I'm sure it was nice for the fellas to get their revenge, I was very impressed with the chemistry displayed, being that it was the first two games this team has played together.

                      Anyway, it was great being back in Messa Rink last night and I look forward to many more return trips.

                        I've been waiting a while to post because I really needed some time to sort out my thoughts after an unprecedented couple of games this weekend. Obviously it is somewhat difficult to make any hard and fast judgments, because let's face it, Sacred Heart, isn't the greatest team on ice, but on the otherhand, they aren't horrible either. It seemed apparent that although they put up a significantly better fight on Saturday, they weren't competitive with Union in any aspects of the game.

                        What I really am trying to get a handle on is whether this freshman group is as good as they seemed to be this weekend. I have a sneaking suspicion that they could be, but only time will tell. It is pretty apparent though that there is some heavy duty offensive talent there with Carr, Jooris and probably Sullivan as well. These could be the some of if not the most talented offensive players Union has ever seen and of course, we've seen some pretty good ones of late. I thought Ingoldsby was solid on D and Ikkala is a fairly mobile physcial type of player. Mat Bodie also seemd extremely mobile and stick savvy, though he could be a bit undersized, at least according to the program.

                        I haven't even gotten to Zajac, Welsh, and Prez and the others yet. Kinkaid looked sharp, Milan maybe not so much, but I'm sure he will come around.

                        16 goals in one game no matter what the competition is pretty darn incredible. It wasn't so many dismal seasons ago where Union couldn't score 16 goals in a month. This coming weekend in Alaska is going to be a much better gauge on just what we may have under the hood this year, though the trip itself may take something out of the boys.

                        I think the coaches have got to be sharing at least a few private smiles over where this recruiting class and the team seems to be at this early point, though you'd never get them to admit it. Talented frosh are fine, but they can counted on to do some weird things throughout at least the first half of the season. It is with the veterans and seniors in particular that you live or die and in that regard, I feel pretty good on what we have there.

                          The team successfully made it to Alaska. I am very interested to see how this weekend plays out for them.

                            Regarding Wholin's comments on the freshmen, I am definitely optimistic, though I wouldn't go fitting them for superman capes quite yet. SHU was nowhere near as good as they were last season, and U freshmen the past few seasons have feasted on Atlantic teams only to struggle in league and OOC against the Big 3 leagues. BUT.. I certainly saw no reason to change my preseason prediction that this could be the best recruiting class U has ever had. Carr and Jooris were certainly as good as advertised and are very skillful & poised with the puck. I'm particularly high on Carr, as he has a very dynamic quality when he gets the puck AND he's essentially a true freshman 18 years old. If he develops more physically, sky's the limit. And while I wouldn't expect these two to keep up their current 70-80 point pace, they definitely are capable of putting up numbers similar to what Welsh, Wayne Simpson & Zajac put up as freshmen (15-25 points). This will go a long way toward filling the void of Walters & MVT.

                            As for the rest of the team, obviously not too much to complain about and a great overall effort on the weekend. I did think that the defensive intensity lapsed a bit at times (understandably) and the younger d-men struggled a bit when SHU actually pressured and got possession in the offensive zone. Not sure how Bodie and Ingoldsby will react when big teams get banging (think Cornell). On the other hand I thought Coburn and Matheson were excellent and showed real leadership getting the puck out of the zone and feeding the forwards. Also nice to see Pallos have a good weekend. The talent at forward is SO deep. And Kinkaid already looks sharp and on his game.

                            This weekend's games will be much sterner tests. U Alaska (Fairbanks) is very good defensively & in goal and no slouchs up front. Anchorage is maybe not quite as talented but are good sized and physical. These will be much more difficult games and should give a better indication of where the team is at.

                              They where at the Carlson Center and I talked with the coach and a few other team members. Said, welcome to Fairbanks and I was glad you came up here to play us!
