Goaltending is another metric:
Below are the ECAC stats for GAA and save%. (http://www.uscho.com/stats/conference/ecac/2014-2015/) These stats are for the ECAC games only and do not include non-conference. Some teams did much better in non-conference matchups. Others did much better in ECAC matchups. Only two teams, as best as I can tell, are losing their starting goalie, Harvard and UNION. In those cases I used the stats from their backups. In Harvard's case the backup only played in one game. The ECAC is returning 10/12 goaltenders.

Goalie - GAA
Yale - Lyon -1.6469
Q - Garteig - 1.7115
St. Lawrence - Hayton - 1.7832
Dartmouth - Kruger - 1.9871
Clarkson -Lewis - 2.0354
Colgate - Finn - 2.2130
Cornell - Gillam - 2.3232
RPI - Kasdorf - 2.7224
Harvard - Madsen - 2.77
Brown - Ernst - 2.9307
Union - Alex - 3.07
Princeton -Phinney - 3.0864

The following is a proxy for "coaching". It is the coach's record at the ECAC team they are currently coaching. This data came from College Hockey News http://www.collegehockeynews.com/reports/team/Union/54
This excludes any coaching record at any other school. It is the "winning percentage" for however long the current coach has been coaching at their current ECAC school. There is no minimum threshold in wins.

Union - .667
Cornell - .614
Yale - .611
Q - .603
St. Lawrence - .518
Colgate - .508
Dartmouth - .503
Harvard - .484
Clarkson - .448
RPI - .424
Brown - .404
Princeton .183

The following is the proxy I used for "defense". It is the number of shots allowed for each team during their 22 game ECAC schedule. This data comes from College Hockey Stats http://www.collegehockeystats.net/1415/teamstats/stlm

Clarkson - 553
Yale - 567

Assigning 12 points for first place, 11 for second place, 10 for third place, etc. I added up the numbers for all twelve teams across all six proxies.

TOTAL
Yale = 63
Q = 57
Saints = 49
Knights = 46
Cornell = 45
Colgate = 41
Harvard = 36
Union = 35
Dartmouth = 33
RPI = 28
Brown = 21
Princeton = 10

We need goaltending .... better defensive play on the part of our forwards .... upper classmen stepping up .... someone filling in for Champ ... avoiding injuries.

Hi Dutchman, thanks for doing all that work.
Goaltending was my biggest disappointment last year. Sometimes, you need your goalie to steal a game for you; last season, it didn't happen. More shot blocking by the forwards should help, but without a goalie, there isn't much the team can do (Alex's 3.07 save % vs Lyon's 1.65). On the other hand, Alex did improve quite a bit, so I have hope. Competition will be good too.

Still caring more about football than hockey? If that's the case, there are some lovely shoes you might be interested in seeing in a trophy case in Troy... :p:D

Oh, did he? Very stealthily I guess, as I wasn't able to detect this.

Cornell once again sports the tallest team followed by Ivy League competitors Brown and Princeton. The Ivy league has traditionally put on the ice some of the biggest but also some of the youngest teams in college hockey.

Next year will be very exciting if you're able to make it to our home games. By January 1 we will have played in our first 17 games and 13 will be home games. Next year's schedule will be very interesting. Will we continue our offensive capabilities? Shore up defensively? Be ready for league play by January 1? Who will lead? By January 1, 2016 we will have played 8 conference games and 9 nc games. What will be our record?


October - 8 games 2c & 6nc
- 4 HE
- 1 AHA
- 1 Big10
November - 5 games 4c & 1nc
- 1 HE
December - 4 games 2c & 2nc

January - 9 games 6c & 3nc
- 1 HE
- 1 ECAC or 1 AHA
February - 8 games 8c & 0nc

Clarkson: We need goaltending, we need goaltending, we need upper classmen forwards stepping up, we need upper classmen forwards stepping up, we need a whole bunch more scoring, we need a whole bunch more scoring.

What he said.

Could you show shots for? I'm imagining that Clarkson is way down the list.

Dutchman

I looked at "shots on goal/game average" but did not think that was a sound metric because some teams blast away with a low % of success while others deliberately take fewer shots so it plays heavily into the coaching philosophy. Some teams take fewer shots and score more frequently as a percentage of total shots. Again these are "ECAC only" (22 games) stats.
