  • Re: 2013-14 Season predictions - the crystal bawl awards!!

    as far as the D1/D/3 thing,I think a lot has to do with depth of the team as well,The first 2 lines of the d3 team can/would keep up with the players on the d1,upper quality, team but depth is the problem after lets say the 30 min mark of the game,kind of like in d3 when a morrisville/cortland stays with a oswego/platty for the first half of the game then their lack of 3/4th lines starts catch up with them..... the lower half of the d1's vs. top d3's would be some good competition all the way through

    • UWEC v SNC
      1. I predict that an institution of higher learning whose initials are EC (unfortunately not the EC team I follow) will make the final pairing in Maine. A roster replete with D1 cast-offs, NAHL recruits (arguably the best American Jr Hockey recruiting grounds for d3) and Western Canadian Jr Leagues (arguably the top tier of Canadian Jr Hockey) on paper is the team to beat.
      2. I predict EC's opponent in the final two will be SNC, arguably the best supported hockey program in all of D3 hockey. Seems they had more suits on the bench in Placid than the other 3 teams combined.
      3. UWEC 4 - SNC 2

      How's that for Eastern bias! and sorry Fish

          Attendance figures would argue against your statement for SNC being the best supported, at least by fans.

                            I'll take a stab at the tournament field. The Pool C`s and ECAC NE champion are pretty much a guess...

                            MIAC- Concordia-Moorhead
                            NCHA- St. Norbert
                            ECAC E- Norwich
                            ECAC NE- Wentworth
                            SUNYAC- Plattsburgh
                            NESCAC- Amherst
                            MASAC- Salem St.

                            Pool B- Stevens Point

                            Pool C- Neumann, CSS, Bowdoin

                                My prediction for this year is that even fewer Western D3 hockey fans will be visiting, let alone posting, on this USCHO website. I base that statement on the following observations;

                                1) The inability to sustain any team thread other than one focusing on either SNC or Adrian.
                                2) The inability to even sustain any Western conference thread.
                                3) Even the participants in last season's NCHAMIACMCHA Pick'em were mostly followers of teams from the East.
                                4) Of the few frequent Western posters a vast majority of them are SNC and Adrian fans*. No other western team has more than 2 , and most have none, which explains #s 1,2,& 3.

                                *- I noticed the # of Adrian fans posting has dwindled over the last two years.
                                Well, here we are nearly halfway through the 2013-2014 season and it looks like I was spot on.
