I know Elmira's roster is strong but is Oswego's.


EC FAN-FOR LIFE

-Oswego's goalie situation definitely leaves some questions at least in my mind. Elmira has Tuttle who will be a fourth year starter when he comes in to Campus Center Ice Arena Friday. Elmira definitely has the edge in that department.

-With most of the roster filled with newcomers, Oswego won't have much time to 'gel' during the game, let's hope that they come out playing as well as they did the mid-2nd period onwards against Royal Military College. Also, hopefully both Selleck and Fox play on Friday because that would create one dangerous first line.

-The amount of freshmen on Gosek's roster really causes a lot of uncertainty. Obviously this group put up some big numbers in the OPJHL, but as Prez has said before, stats in Juniors don't necessarily carry over to D-III college hockey. If they can adjust to the type of play early in the game, there's really no telling what will happen.

-Elmira does have some great players; Masters, Tuttle, Linden. Depending on how others pick up the slack from the couple of seniors they lost, they can be a very tough team.

-It'll be interesting to see the type of atmosphere there will be in both games. Last weekend the Campus Center was ok, parents weekend definitely boosted the numbers. Hopefully the students show up and try to be a bit active in the game. At Elmira, over the past couple years it has seemed that they are drawing a larger crowd. Whether this is due to more students attending, or the townies showing up in bunches, no clue (Prez or another person familiar with it?). Both teams have a decent home ice advantage if the crowds are good.

Honestly, from my point of view, Oswego will struggle initially in the first game because there are a lot of unknown variables to account for and Elmira has solid goaltending. I expect Elmira to take both games, but not by much.

Just got word that our tickets for Friday's game will be delivered tomorrow.
$8:eek: for a D-3 hockey game? They are $4-$5 anywhere else.
Must still be paying for that new rink:rolleyes:

Back on topic, I think both games will be close, can't wait. Will be at both games.

Ian Ott, Oswegonian Laker Hockey beat reporter as well as SID student assistant said that Oswego will be getting live stats up and running again this season so look for that on the Oswego athletics website for Friday.

Not sure if Elmira is having live stats this year or not. They have in the past and I dont know why they would stop but I do know they had SID turnover the past few years.

Which game? Friday or Saturday? Please say both.

I'm pretty sure Oswego is bringing their live stats back this season. Check Oswego.edu/athletics/game/livestatsforpioneer#1/donkey/ninja/nambla on the day of the game.

Doubt you will have a problem getting tickets. Crowd was announced at 2195 for this game last season and that was generous. You can call the box office (http://oswego.edu/athletics/tickets/index.html) before heading to Oz - (315) 312-3073.

Ticket prices went up this year I see. It used to be $6 for adults at Oswego State hockey games at the CC.

Maybe since it's the home opener they are trying to sell more? Or that might just be the flat rate this year.

Plattsburgh charges around that for a hockey game as well. I think it's $6 or $7 for their games and they charge extra for the Oswego game every year.

Elmira's attendance has been getting better the last few seasons with the return of Elmira as one of the powerhouse teams in the country. It's still nowhere near where it was in the 80's and 90's but those days are long gone. On a really good night with the Jackals not in town and a big opponent Elmira can get close to 2000 or so people. The capacity is listed at 3216 or something like that but they have gone well over that in the past.

I would look for a big group of students to be there especially considering it's the first game of the season. They have slowly started to come to more games the past few years which has helped attendance numbers a little bit. However, the "townie" count seems to decrease every year as well.

Throw in atleast 50 Oswego fans or so maybe even close to 100 and there could be a good crowd at the Domes on Saturday.

Ryan, will you be attending the game at Elmira?

Currently, I won't be going to the CC on Friday as I have a wedding to attend in Auburn. However, I am planning on making the trip to the Domes on Saturday for the back end of the home and home doubleheader.

Look for Oswego to be sporting some new road uniforms this weekend as well.

Had planned on it but now it appears I'll be working. Trying to get out of it.

That's what they wore for the team photo. Not sure what they'll sport Saturday night.

You seem to be correct young grasshopper, well for the most part. Here is a breakdown of Elmira's attendance over the last few years per the NCAA record book available on their web site.


Year Attendance Record
2004 238 11-12-2
2005 1,165 11-12-3
2006 1,248 18-9-2
2007 721 13-10-4
2008 1,427 20-4-5
2009 1,091 16-8-3

Now on the surface one would speculate that Elmira's attendance numbers are a reflection of the fair weathered fan syndrome. I can't say that I disagree, however, I did come across another interesting bit of info that has a direct correlation to Elmira's attendance at hockey games. It appears that the cows were well milked in 2004 and 2007, yet had painful udders in 2008.

From the Bureau of Labor Statistics website (http://data.bls.gov/PDQ/servlet/SurveyOutputServlet;jsessionid=a23038e9732a1b43579 7). Here is the average price of milk from 2004-2009 as of January 1st of each year.


Year Attendance Price of Milk
2004 238 $2.87
2005 1,165 $3.30
2006 1,248 $3.19
2007 721 $3.06
2008 1,427 $3.87
2009 1,091 $3.57

So, as is clearly evident. Low attendance at Elmira is not only good for the cows. It saves us some hard earned money.

Funny;) As for the price of milk, I just paid a little under $2.00 gal. yesterday:eek: I hope that's not a sign of things to come.
I've not missed a home game in 22yrs:D I'll be there both games.
