If you guys are half as good as you blow on these boards about being you'd be 27-0 at the moment. Maybe with more biased officiating and some skill you would be.

I'll let you worry about biased officiating and skill...I'm pretty happy with what my team has, since it was good enough to sweep you guys at least.

O'Byrne didn't matter? Maybe he mattered more than you think since he is in the NHL and the goalies who got the accolades at Cornell are not?


Where did I say he didn't matter? I said he wasn't a huge asset to our team at the time that he played for Cornell.

Didn't we do this last year after the Yale games?

Make up calls? Was it make up calls because the call on Wick was horse****? Or were they make up calls because Cornell got called for the point men very clearly setting a pick to give themselves space which they have done for years and rarely get called or the make up call for Ryan smoking a player not near the puck to give more room to the slow Cornell player? Answer is irrelevant as by even saying make up call you made my point about the quality of officiating.

Oh, thank you for your miscues. Obviously, we were clearly outmatched and should be ashamed that we didn't pay proper homage to the hockey royalty so kind to grace us with their presence. If you guys are half as good as you blow on these boards about being you'd be 27-0 at the moment. Maybe with more biased officiating and some skill you would be. My point was that the officiating wasn't helping either team. ECAC refs are awful by definition. But they didn't give this game to Cornell. Cornell putting four legitimate goals past your sieve did.

Schafer's Cornell teams are not known for their goal production. Cornell scored five goals in a game only three times this year. There were no power play goals or short-handed goals in Saturday's Cornell - SLU game, in which Cornell scored four goals. Consider the possibility that SLU needs to work on defensive play rather than assume the ECAC harbors a vast conspiracy with unnamed and unfathomable motives.

Fun game to watch despite the loss. The team played hard the whole game and losing a tight one in ot to #12 is nothing to be ashamed of. I like the team's level of play since the albany trip and think they will be a tough matchup for any team come playoffs.

Agree with you 100%. I really liked SLU not quitting and giving it everything they had. I wouldn't want to face us in the playoffs. As for the officiating, I'm not going there as doing so solves nothing and will just raise my BP.

BTW, "thanks" SLU Administration for giving the Cornell Band the best seats in the house. I really like the Cornell Band, but don't like SLU putting them right next to the SLU Student Section. Duh! As an FYI, students do not count in the attendance figures at Appleton as there's no turnstyles there and students get in for free or via an "E-ZPass" Card. There's no way there were less than 3,000 at the Cornell game (listed as 1,933).

A really fun weekend - it was great to be there and thanks go out once again to Pat and Eric for their hospitality.

OK, I was biting my lip and trying to stay out of this, but I bit all the way thru my lip !

Smith is a "cherry picker", what a joke, and this is based on watching one game?? What a absolutely ridiculous, bordering on "moronic" statement. Be honest, how many games did you watch him play this year ? Some games he just dominated "both" ends of the ice. Ask other teams what they think of him, good lord. He leads the league in "plus minus" and 50% more goals than his nearest competitor. (33)
You want him to play goalie also?

Moronic? Nice. Right back at ya.

I watched the Colgate/SLU game the other night. I've already said he's an excellent player, and that I would love to have that kind of goal-scoring production on my favorite team. And the other night he was cherry-picking while on the penalty kill, at least twice. He stood at the SLU blue line, waiting to see if his team could break up SLU's entry into the offensive zone and spring him for a breakaway. It doesn't mean he's a bad kid or a bad player, it doesn't mean he doesn't lead the nation in goals scored by a wide margin, and it doesn't mean I want him to play goalie. But it happened. Get as angry as you like at me for saying so, but that won't change.

Never angry at you Tim, and I said "bordering" not a shot at you. It was more at "everyone" cutting him down. For instance, someone said something like "Gees no wonder he has thirty three goals, hangin out getting "open netters" etc. I was a lil frustrated getting up Sunday am, that's all. I apologise if you took it personally, really, I don't do that (except for one RPI idiot) and you know who that is. LOL

Didn't see it posted here or on Heisenberg but it appears you received a commitment from Holderness D-man Gavin Bayreuther for 2014.
Cheers,

A potentially great rink is ruined by piping in music over a loud speaker and an obnoxious goal horn. Any rink as classic as Appleton should embrace its age. No goal horn, no recorded music, just a band and a crazy atmosphere. Then it'd easily be the second best rink in ECAC hockey (to the venerable Lynah Rink of course!)

The problem with this is current students have to take initiative, and it takes an enormous amount of money to start a brass band from scratch. A sousaphone alone can run like $4000+ for a good one, so you'd have to come up with a lot of people interested and some really good reasons to justify the funding. I'm all for SLU getting a band, especially as a Clarkson band alum. It would've made the rivalry just that much better.

Oh I'm not saying it is easy. I'm just saying a rink like that deserves to be treated like the artifact it is.

I would love to see SLU get a band, but as has been noted, the cost of starting that up, in today's economic times, is a pipe dream IMO. Years ago, they would bring in a semi-local high school band. Sure, it was better than nothing, but (with no disrespect to the high school kids who volunteered their Fridays/Saturdays) they didn't exactly sound good... at all.

As to getting rid of the, as you call it, obnoxious siren? I honestly hope they never get rid of it, and would actually prefer they go back to years past where it would go off for more than 1.5 seconds. I would almost guarantee you that the players feel the same way, the siren is very much an integral part of the atmosphere at Appleton.

A tough one tonight for the Saints. They played well at Harvard but not well enough. I thought we could have had a bit more spunk and jump at times but compared to how we played when I was in Albany a few weeks back, well....they were a ton better than that. In fact were it not for Girard standing on his head several times the outcome could have been different.
We missed some opportunities......
-The 5 minute penalty at the start of the game was critical. Crimson almost killed it off and we scored at the end but if we could have potted a couple to start we could have got them on their heels a bit more.
-We had one PP that was totally squandered....we spent about a minute and a half in our own end.
-In the first period in particular and some in the second Girard put some rebounds out in areas where if the puck bounced right or we were in right spot we could have scored some rebound goals.

We pretty much (IMO) carried the play for the better part of two periods even though we were down 2-1. We needed to come out in the third and take over but it went the other way around. We had one sequence where we got really sloppy and careless and it led to Harvards third goal.

All in all it was Girards night. I stood with Leckster and several times we thought for sure the puck was going in only to have Girard kick out a pad, an arm or dive across to stop the puck. It was his night and he was the star of the game.

Gotta win tomorrow or its road time.

By the by a lot of SLU hockey royalty at the game tonight. There was a players reunion before the game with almost 100 people in attendance.

Women's Team advances to ECAC Semis., with a 2-0 win at Dartmouth this afternoon and a series sweep on the road. Here's to hoping the Men also win in Hanover tonight.
