    I'm fine with it, but it should go to the RS champion.

    (BTW tonight's game is being streamed via the Stevenson site.)

    Bold prediction time: Stevenson, with its 17 Jrs and Srs, is definitely the favorite, but not by much.

    Still, you'd have to give the nod to the home team if you had any sense.

    I have more optimism than sense, and I predict a tie.

      OK, but I was close. I see Stevenson as the favorite to win the RS.

      Very entertaining game to watch. But UC (or any other team) can finish as low as 6th and still be within a couple of wins of an NCAA berth.

      Makes perfect sense, right?

        After this weekend I think a split is more than acceptable. Considering the travel and some other factors..getting a win at Stevenson would have been a huge steal. See Wilkes, Utica and Stevenson as the top three to take the league. Then not to give Fish more ammo but anything can happen in the postseason. BTW how many auto bids are there along with at large...asking for a friend.

          I generally agree, but I'm not going to count Elmira out, either. That 1st line is beyond outstanding.

          As far as your other comment, it would be very likely that Wilkes would garner an AL bid at this moment, assuming they didn't win a silly, add-on, after-the-fact, fundamentally-BS conference tournament AQ bid.

          (Couldn't help myself! )

            Fish, getting mixed signals on UC, seems like they're very good one night then so so. Heenan's teams seem to be inconsistent every year, what's your take ?
            It all starts with the goaltending.

              When does the new D3 Poll come out? A bunch of teams played last week?

                My take: a completely-decent 1st half of the season. Playing better as they go along. Heard that Landrigan and Baggs will be back from injuries after the holidays, which is good news.

                Wilkes and Stevenson are the teams to beat in the UCHC right now, though. (Who woulda thunk it, a couple of years back?) If UC can fare well at Adrian and Oswego, that'll help as to any AL consideration.

                BUT, I'm guessing that Utica will be a bridesmaid yet again this season. Pretty good team, but maybe not good enough.

                  That poll doesn't matter in any shape or form, nefan. The PWR does, and it's current on here right now.

                    Understood, but I enjoy seeing what some of the coaches and writers think. The poll is usually an eye test of what people are seeing on the ice!! Was curious to see what it would look like after the 2 Eau-Clare losses and the Trinity loss. Have a great holiday!!

                      I wanted to see it too, but at this point looks like we'll be waiting until January

                        Yeah, not only the losses by Eau-Clare and trinity but wins by Adrain, Salve, Augsburg, Hobart. Would’ve been interesting to see how that shook out. Oh well.

                          Sorry if I sounded snotty. The poll means jack, but I always take an interest in it as well. Happy holidays to you and yours.

                            UC wins a wild one at Adrian. At least a tie tomorrow will be very helpful should they need to contend for an AL bid.

                                Wasn't it? Even on the fuzzy feed, that was entertaining to watch.
