I'd expected Nieto and Ernst to share most of the time in net this year, with Steel and Maher on the outside looking in.

    Best of luck to Tyler! His once-promising collegiate career was derailed by injuries, and I certainly hope he can find his game again in the pros. Upon reading the post, I was initially skeptical, but my concerns were mostly alleviated when he laid out his plan for graduation. At the very least, he can "fall back" on his degree from an elite institution, so why not try his luck at hockey?

    I like seeing Brown's recruits turning down other schools. As Kane 88 says, future is looking better and better, starting even with 3016-2017.

    Did anyone from the roster attend the Blackhawks' prospect camp? I went to Bagel Gourmet on Thayer this morning and there was a (seemingly) college-aged guy wearing a Blackhawks' prospect camp shirt there.

    With Mark White having left last year and now Mike Levine leaving, Brown has lost two solid coaches and great recruiters at the start of the school year. Any names floating around for replacing Mike?

    Re: Brown Hockey 2016-17: The Importance of Being Ernst

    I finally made it to the Foxboro pro league on Wednesday! It was fun to see Matt Harlow, Bobby Farnham, and Nick Lappin play on a line together. Bobby did a handstand on the ice after the other team scored an empty net goal to seal the game. Can't say I've seen that before!

    Connor Maher allowed 5 goals, but each was scored by an NHL player and would've been a tough (or even impossible) save for any college goalie. I was very impressed by his play - he stopped several breakaways and chances right in or around the crease, had good rebound control, made excellent reactionary saves, and shut down a few second chances. I'd like to see him get some game action this season.

    I certainly agree regarding your views on Maher. I think he had a strong showing when he came in mid game vs. Quinnipiac down 4-1(?) as a freshmen. He wasn't perfect by any means, but I thought he gave the team a chance. I don't think I was the only one who was surprised he didn't start vs. Princeton the next night. Instead he started at Clarkson almost a year later -- a road trip I'm sure the whole team would like to forget. Would definitely like to see him get some time this season behind a strengthened defense group!

    That Clarkson game was one of the worst games the team played last year (and there were quite a few downers). Maher allowed 5 goals but, again, it's hard to fault him for any of them when his defense provided no support whatsoever.

    I'm hoping Whittet will give each of his three goalies a shot this year.

    I saw two pro league games this year. And Maher was very good in one, outstanding in the other. Shut down a number of NHL and AHL players.
    I asked a spectator who it was, as I thought it was an AHL or NHL goalie, could not believe it was Brown's Maher. I believe he will compete for the starting goalie position. I hope his level of performance extends into the season, if so Brown may finally have a very competitive goalie. Wouldn't that be a change for the better.

Perhaps not providing consistent scoring punch but at least will not be (-10) over the course of the season and control the puck below the goal line.

    The big question remains as you brought up who will be the top six and more importantly will they be able to develop chemistry to the point where we can score 5v5 and Man-Up.
    Re. First-year forwards: Don't overlook Brent Beaudoin. The kid has solid offensive credentials.
    Re. Top six defensemen: Dane Cooper is healthy and is expected to contribute regularly.

    That's quite the cross-country move...

    Josh was an assistant coach at Milton Academy a few years back. He knows plenty about how the Ivies work.

    Great! That's a big advantage coming in.

    New commit. He's only 16, so it'll be at least 2-3 years before he comes to Brown. Sounds like the kid can score (28 points in 16 games this year in the GOJHL.

    When an athlete commits to Brown 2-3 years before matriculating, I realize that the commit is still subject to admission to Brown. How does the coaching staff at the time of the commitment make the determination then that he will pass muster with the Admissions Office when his application is being processed a few years later? I am presuming that no decision is made by the Admissions Office at the time of the commitment.

    The Ivy coaches will look at a recruit's transcript and PSAT or SAT scores if they have them... They tell the kid what he needs to get in - the academic index is based on GPA+Math+Verbal Sats... There are no guarantees when a school makes an offer - it is still up to the recruit to live up to his end of the bargain and get decent grades and test scores. Every year there are committed Ivy league kids who don't get through admissions because their grades weren't good enough
