The CCC should again be a very strong conference this year. The top clubs seemed to have reloaded for another strong run. I think there could be 5 teams contending, if rosters from last year, plus what they added this year, are to be believed.
Did catch UNE vs USM on Thursday and was impressed with their overall team speed and quickness. Ryan Bloom looks much improved, bigger and quicker than he was last year. He gets the puck off his stick as quick as anyone I have seen. He is strong in the corners and along the wall. I think the weakness with UNE will be in goal.
Should be a fun year with the new schedule. UNE will play Nichols, Endicott and Salve 3 times this year. Certainly will be a challenge.
I don't mean to dismiss teams 6, 7 or 8 cuz I think on any given night...
