Can't wait to see the Mariucci trophy in the 'Gate trophy case. We're awfully young and inconsistent, but we'll see what this win does for the rest of the ECAC season. Go 'Gate.

What a weekend by Colgate. While I wish the Gophers would have won, but they didn't. Colgate just went about their business and beat #1 and #2. Congrats.

Finn was impressive. He should make for a fun team to watch.

I'm sure the Gophers are the better team - they were missing a couple players & a coach for the Colgate team. One thing about hockey - the best team doesn't always win. A hot goalie can get a team a lot of wins, and give them a bunch of confidence.
Colgate isn't bad, just very young and inconsistent. They will be fun for us to watch for the next couple of years.

I also wanted to say congratulations to the Colgate fans here. You guys most definitely deserved to win the tournament. If your team plays that way from here on out, they will make some noise this season. I cannot believe Finn is a freshman. Future is bright at Colgate for sure.

You could if you saw him in November at the HFH when he gave up three goals in seven shots.

One of which was highly reminiscent of a shot Robbie Bina once made on Jeff Frazee.

What this tells me is that the Coaching staff at Colgate has done an excellent job at developing their freshman goaltender. Our freshman goaltender, Alex Sakellaropoulos, also had a rough beginning when he had to step in for our injured starter in our first five games. When he got another starting role, in midseason, it was against one of the then top scoring teams, and the #1 team at that time, St. Cloud. He nearly shut them out (shots 34-1). Hats off to Finn and the Colgate coaching staff. Developing raw talent into winners is what good coaches do. By the way, you did the ECAC proud. Put the wins behind you, lots of tough competition on the horizon. No easy wins in the ECAC this year. Back to work.

Just a footnote. Troy Grosenick, our starting goalie last year had a real difficult start as a freshman as well. He went on to be a Hobey Baker finalist.

Not like Ralph to be rabidly to the point and truthful? You must not know him very well.
