    Oz lost the top scorer Selleck with the Amerks , the top 2 goal scorers, the top defensman, and starting goalie........not really intact.......all teams have to reload, and Elmira could schedule an exhibition game if it likes to, even its against a retirement home. Bottom line 2 great teams and it lets both coaches know whats what right at the beginning ..........both teams are in a good place for sure........ps those sisters can get mean at times, at least once a month ;-)

    anyone know what happened to Shane Talarico? He was a goalie from the Phila Revolution. His teammate Joe Gagne made the team.

    Looks like a strong roster. Im amazed how hard it is to make a NCAA team now. These are some serious hockey players

    Its an inter squad scrimmage before final cuts. Where the name came from I dont know. . Also comes with dragging rights, I remember Kalweit and Cowan talking trash about their days.
    As a former played it holds a special place for me because it was the first time I put a EC jersey on. Will never forget that.
    Was also the first time I heard the fans stomping on the ground which thundered down to the lockerroom. During games my arm hairs would stand up when I heard that. Amazing

    Re: Opinions are like...

    Pitiful crowd - Only ~500 - It's a shame

    Lines were juggled tonight with a bit different result:
    - Sanders was on the Vallaincort - Willer line (Mo'ville couldn't skate with these three)
    - Consorti - Archambault - Acorn (really fun to watch)
    - Morikawa - Strale - Hoey (created havoc all night)
    - Willard joined the Shrank - Herold line (no identity yet)

    Mo'ville evidently didn't get off the bus, and EC scored twice in the first 80 seconds, after which Mo'ville called its timeout. Didn't improve much for the Mustangs from then on. Mo'ville was absolutely confused in their defensive end, and continually lost track of skaters resulting in open shot after open shot. Relkoff was pulled after 4 or 5 goals, none on which he had a prayer. Mustangs only have two lines that can play.

    MacDonald was in goal, didn't have to make many tough saves, but still didn't look comfortable. 2nd allowed goal was as soft as a Utica pretzel. Game got a bit chippy toward the end, and Matt Salmon got DQ'ed for throwing a punch. Funny thing was, the poor kid had to swing 6 times before connecting. Advice ... If you're going to fight, at least take a couple of lessons ... punk.

    I'm still trying to figure out how the EC player ended up receiving 2 minutes for roughing and 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct for having his helmet ripped off, not fighting at all, and getting sucker punched when his head was looking completely away from Salmon?

    The roughing occurred after the cross-check in the corner, the unsportsmanlike was evidently something Lee said to instigate Salmon. Must have been a pretty good jibe to lure the kid into throwing punches.

    Elmira Fans, be warned an RIT ghost from "Elmira'a ECAC West Nightmares past" will be visting the domes this Friday. Do not panic, can only catch the Friday game...
    Course, That's Just my Opinion, I Could Be Wrong.

    Re: Elmira College Soaring Eagles 2010-2011 Season Thread

    - Late arriving crowd, but only ~450 fannies at the anthem. Probably 750 total.
    - Lines for EC were the same tonight except Owczarczak skated on Shrank's line. Kid's not afraid to lay on the leather. Fun to watch.
    - Shrank's line was matched pretty consistently against Ma'ville's top line, and made Lane's line work.
    - Two really good goaltending exhibitions tonight; McDonald and Lemieux. Both made stellar saves all night.
    - Perhaps EC goaltending questions are beginning to be answered!?
    - Bad line change created the Ma'ville goal
    - Levinthal and Grady kept changing strategies all night. Pretty interesting chess match. Hard forecheck, then a quasi-trap, a full back-check, then they'd spring a forward cherry picking. Saul earned his salary tonight.
    - Real intense, hard hitting, action all night.
    - Finally skating four lines paid off, and toward the 2nd half of the 3rd, the Vals legs gave out, giving EC many more quality chances.
    - EC had quality chances throughout, but could never capitalize. Ma'ville played very disciplined defense in all three zones.
    - Lemieux got a piece of both Elmira goals

    Re: Elmira College Soaring Eagles 2010-2011 Season Thread

    Utica v. EC
    - Better crowd tonight ... close to 1000
    - After last night's toe-to-toe knockdown, dragout contest, a few guys got the night off:
    -- Vallaincort | Sanders | Willer - Killer speed
    -- Archambault | Acorn | Kourtoglou (one of the prettiest tic-tac-toe-tic plays we've seen in a while)
    -- Strale | Hoey | Clewlow - Strale takes a few too many penalties, but these three can skate
    -- Schrank | Herold | Morisette -
    - Frackin new on defense for Sawyer - played solidly
    - Utica is big, but couldn't skate with Elmira
    - MacDonald now has 100+ consecutive minutes of shutout hockey. Looking more comfortable and solid every period.
    - Doesn't hurt that the defense hasn't skipped a beat even with 2 or 3 new guys out there.
    - Linden - the last EC All American - drives me crazy, he's either backpeddling early and failing to keep a puck in the o-zone, or he's making an end-to-end run just to lose the puck to three defenders. Has a wicked slappah, but will never pull the trigger!?
    - EC was much more unbalanced tonight compared to the Mo'ville game. Too many times with 3 guys within a 10' radius of the puck. They do better when they're continually buzzing the net.
    - This is the deepest squad I've ever seen at the Domes which brings me to my night's discourse.

    Let me philosophize a bit. Utica isn't getting the same NAHL recruits that they did a few years back. Seems as though a few squads are investing heavily in their programs, getting the top-shelf talent, even getting D1 dropbacks, and the disparity between the elite and the rest is widening. Although the club I follow is a benefactor of this trend, it's simply not good for D3 in general. Having only 1 or 2 strong teams in each league and the rest fighting for survival is just bad. Perhaps one reason for the formation of the MASCAC, and the demise of the interlock. Should the trend continue, the rich get richer, the poor, poorer, and you have the American League phenomenon in hockey. Perhaps a D4 isn't a bad idea after all.

    Was at the EC/ NU game last night. Was good seeing the guys. Talked with Coach Saul and Jackson after 1st period but had to leave mid way through 2nd as I had a wedding to o to. Was a little late!
    I took some pics I'll post and some video from iPhone.

    Karl Linden is a stud. He just makes plays. EC is quick, was great seeing them play.
    Talked to a couple of the guys that didn't play. But after a while I felt like I was bothering them.
    I'll post a couple pics when I can get them hosted.

    Also NU has nice new unis!

    I went to the Curry game. Saw lots of alums: Jeremy Baker, Jeremy Tabb, Jim Dinneen, Bryan Musa, Chris Kavanaugh, Tim Ceglarski. They had an EC Alumni party after the game, which was late due to the game starting at 9:10 because of a bus breakdown.

    Jeremy Baker. My first favorite Elmira player. #10 correct?

    Baker was #10. Forgot to add Vic Fidler to the list of alums I ran into. It was like turning back the clock 15 years.

    What number was Tabb? He sounds familiar too.

    No Rich Reerie sightings?! or Mike Biesenthal.

    Two more of my favorite players. Andrei Krivokrasov...
