    UC graduated its top 3 goal-scorers, who accounted for 40 of 119 team goals ( 34%), and its superb goalie as well.

    Newcomers Osmundson, Larsson, Cuffley, Rutkowski and Ott (an RPI transfer) look promising, as does the G Giacobbo, but you never know how guys will pan-out. Right now, I'm optimistic.

    Exhibition this Friday in Shabby's back yard should be interesting.

    No kidding? As a redshirt grad student, maybe? That would be great for UC's depth-chart.

    That's a lot of forwards, looks like some good ones too, and size.

    This team has the horses to run, can’t wait to see them in action.

    UC destroyed em. Very lopsided game. Utica looked huge. New guys can play. Landrigan Osmundson Kjellqvist line will be tough to contain this year lot of speed and skill there. Zapata looked good. All the returners were good for the most part

    Well UC looked great and skated circles around Morrisville. Didn’t see much to be negative about about at all. The new guys fit right in and the team clicked like they’ve been playing together for years.

    Of course now I’ve ratcheted up my expectations based upon this performance in a single preseason game. 😆 If this is all for real, Gary will have a helluva time choosing scratches and keeping everyone content. With 33 rostered players I believe that this is the largest UC team ever.

    I'm interested to see how the D-1 transfer does. How did he look last night? Didnt get to see the game. But it seems as if players who come to Utica from the D-1 ranks flourish under this system and program. Thoughts

    Thanks guys for your takes on the game.

    SOG were 52-13? Ouch... And Morrisville has been very respectable lately. What did you think of Giacobbo?

    I'm encouraged, and anxious to see UC this Saturday. As jcase said, there should be a lot of competition to crack the line-up every week. (And I actually expect some mid-season defections, considering the size of the roster.)

    The new guys showed-up in the box... And so did Fitz. with 2 roughing calls, a fighting, and a DQ. His act is getting old.

    (Oh yeah, and how did you guys like seeing a game at Kennedy? I enjoy that little barn.)

    Ott had a second assist -which of course are handed-out like candy on Halloween- but you're right that UC has had some truly outstanding D-1 transfers.

    Um, Morrisville hasn't won more than seven games since 2010-2011. The last four years they've won 4, 6, 5, and 5 games. Last year's wins were against Cortland, Chatham, Bryn Athyn, and Potsdam. Not exactly a murderer's row. I'd temper any expectations based on this game....

    You got me there. FMR, I do hate facts!

    I confused them with Canton, maybe? The SUNYAC's lower-echelon has never been my strong suit, if I actually have a strong suit. (And, yeah, Canton wasn't diddley last year, either.)

    In any case, I didn't expect much from UC this season, so any sort of dominance -even in an exhibition- is encouraging. There are so many new players this season.

    We'll see.

    Heyy, don't be talking about my alma mater, they've only been D3 a couple of years, give them a few more. We were National NJCAA champions when I played for them, both years, not telling you what years though !
