    Looking at the schedule, I predict a serious drop from last years 14-18-5.
    Last years preseason poll had them at 9, finished 8. This years poll has them at 10, will finish at that or lower.
    This team looks more like 6-27-2 team on paper, possibly worse.

    I watched several home games last year and the 3 games this year and I agree this team will have a worse record than last. They played reasonably well for much of the game with Brock and bounced back when Brock had their strong periods. Totally Different vs Minnesota Mankato. For the vast majority of the game they were unable to play against a team that is not a top 10 team, although they looked like Clarkson last year. On the other side they are young and should improve as the,season goes on. Their biggest problem will be scoring. While Selander is gone, the goalies they do have, from what I saw, should be able to play well enough to keep them in games.

    They are still a better team, but just don't have Lovisa. Having a player that can limit you to one goal or no goals is a huge advantage and remains to be seen how much of a down grade this will be. I doubt there will be many 0-0 games or 1-0 wins like last year.

    19 games decided by one goal or less
    11-2-6 in those games WITH LOVISA
    Prediction: 5-12-2 this year WITHOUT
    Selanderís Career Totals: 131 7651:01 300 4167 4467 .933 2.35 40-71-19 .381
    She was easily one of the greatest college goalies of all time. Had she played for Minnesota or Clarkson, she would have 4 rings. With her in goal this year, RPI couldíve won 13-14 games, without, probably 5-6.
    Still standing by my record of 6-27-2

    Unfortunately, this seems pretty realistic, maybe even optimistic, based on what we have seen so far, barring some really surprising performances from some of the freshmen (esp. one of the goalies).

    Probably not. The reason is that as you get the top teams playing each other in the tournament, both teams often have very good goalies that stop almost all of the shots. The exceptions become shots that are screened or pinball around, or a perfectly executed two on one or other backdoor feed.

    There aren't that many goalies that have won two NCAA titles: Sautter, UMD; Horak, UM; Vetter, UW; Ršty, UM; Leveille, UM; Tiley, Clarkson. Only Vetter won three. A lot of great goalies didn't win any despite playing for excellent teams.

    Another thing to consider is that it can be a totally different challenge for a goalie when seeing 20 shots per game rather than seeing 50. If she sees only two shots in a period but one hits the net, that can be more damaging than when one of 16 shots in a frame connects.

    Well, we scored a goal last weekend. Now the question becomes if we can win a game

    Back to not scoring today.
    Take the shortest distance to the puck and arrive in ill humor

    I think Penn State is going to end up being less mediocre than you think this season. RPI is a less than mediocre team without question. Lovisa didn't score goals for them so not having her this year isn't actually their biggest problem. You can't win games if you can't score 3 goals per game on average throughout the season. Right now they're scoring only 0.20 goals per game while their opponents are scoring 2.80 goals per game. The math doesn't lie. Minnesota State and Merrimack aren't exactly powerhouse teams and RPI has been heavily outshot by these teams. They haven't really been close to their opponents so far. This is shaping up to be a VERY long season for them. It's too bad really. When do they play Union? They MIGHT have a chance then.

    I liked the way RPI moved the puck, but has a significant disadvantage in the size dept which will be there all year.

    Even though RPI had only nine shots, they were close to scoring. Lovisa could keep them in games like this.

    Penn State is having trouble scoring but the d is solid.

    They need to move the puck towards the net twice as much, and moving it INTO the net a couple of times a game wouldn't hurt either.
