    The ECAC is always tough, very hard to dominate any year. With little to go on regarding last year other than the 4 teams that played each other non-stop, the perennial powers, Cornell, Princeton and Harvard, who didn't still have to be given consideration. This is an Olympic year so Princeton is without Sarah Fillier who was centralized by Hockey Canada or they would be ranked right up there. I think she's taking the entire year off, but not sure. Also not sure if anyone else in the ECAC is impacted. Clarkson lost Guigerre who isn't centralized but is taking her last eligible year at UMD as a grad student. In Hockey East, Northeastern will lose Mueller to the Swiss as well and she may or may not be back. I'm not aware if NCAA rules preclude players from coming back or if that's up to them and their teams...

      Always tough to be picked first; everyone wants a piece of you. As someone said, this team has been building for 4 years and the time is now. Did not know that Breanne Wilson-Bennett is an assistant at Union this year. Too bad there was not a spot at 'Gate for her. Wish her luck except 2 games/yr ;-)

        I saw that announcement when I was looking for her on the Toronto 6 roster where she played great in the spring. I would bet if she wants to come home she will get the call whenever Greg's present coaching team starts to get head coaching opportunities...

          Nice first game. Not particularly pleasant to go down 1 on a bad turnover but very nice to score the next 8 without looking back. Looked good across the board. Newbies played well but older players led the way with unrelenting forecheck which never gets old to watch. Brick, Golnitz, Chan and Greig fit right in and I can't wait until they feel comfortable. Nice to see 2nd and 3rd line upperclassmen score a few. All the stars had their moments too...fun!

            Win the games you should, especially at home. RIT not the best gauge for success. After reading the ECAC write-up on here, the League has many weapons and it will be a battle to the finish. I would not say Colgate is a lock for anything, but we have a great shot. If Brick is any indication, it would be great to have freshmen contribute right off the bat.

                The refs didn’t call it a goal initially. They looked at it during the TV timeout and then awarded the goal.

                  Not only that but there was no announcer in the first period either or replay of the goal later. Then the public service ads ran over themselves and cameras were blurry. All in all a sloppy start. The best part was when the announcer congratulated the producer at the end on what he said was the producer's first game. Not sure if that was legit or tongue in cheek to cya himself...Hopefully it gets better soon...

                    It all starts with the goaltending.

                      Watts line did Greig play on in game 1 vs game 2 the last series? She sure exploded in game 2.

                        Same both games. First line. Puck was finding her wide open. A not uncommon occurrence against RIT.

                          Competition aside she also benefitted greatly by having Serdachny who was in her graduating class at Pursuit of Excellence in Calgary on her line. They hammed and egged it for years together before they separated for college. Serdachny had 6 assists in game two alone, 4 on the Greig goals. That said Greig buzzed the net like a total pro both games so I think she will be a great addition. That line with Kaltunkova who was the ECAC player of the week with 7 points in 2 games, should be lethal this year...

                            Unlike RIT, Mercyhurst was a formidable opponent; their goaltending is always solid and gives us fits. Colgate showed some weakness on the pk but took care of business on their own pp. Lots of passing the puck which led to some missed opportunities and eventual turnovers IMO. Great to see a new class contribute right away! First road trip on tap this weekend. UVM finished 10-18-3 / 7-14-6 in a tough conference. A road sweep is not out of the question but a split would for any road team would be ok.

                              UVM is very good and is going to win a number of games in Hockey East this year so this weekend was a good test. We passed again. Syracuse is next up and we need to be careful not to look ahead as they would love nothing more than knocking us off our perch before our date with Minn. The usual suspects gave been good but Osborne has been spectacular..

                                I think SU tied Clarkson…we have not put up big numbers in SOG which will be worrisome against tougher opponents, but we’ve been opportunistic. Taking 5 penalties per game is not a winning formula. These early OOC games carry a lot of weight toward the postseason. Agree that Vermont is a good team that did many things well. They were snake bitten and we had some lucky bounces. Hopefully these early games benefit us well when it comes time to play the Ivies.
