    Quinnipiac writer says we have no talent offensively, worst powerplay in the country at 1-44 for 2%, hard to argue that one.
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    That was a very clear-eyed, neutral assessment of our program. Frankly, it may have been too kind to us.

    Re: Colgate 2019-20

    I do have something positive to say, upon entering the 4:00 game after football two weeks ago, I saw a player that really did impress me and that was Colton Young. His brother coming next year is supposed to be even better, maybe there's some hope.

    I know this probably sounds overly positive but we have loss only as many games as we have not loss this season. (Yes an odd way to put it) but it gets to the point that we have at least had some decent play this year. Id like some of the tires to be wins but baby steps and on that note lea get 2 points this weekend

    I feel horrible, figuratively and literally.
    I have decided to pull the plug on tonight’s game, and likely tomorrow night’s game, too. I need to feel well on Sunday’s Philly to Dublin flight.
    I will try using my ESPN+ subscription of the Colgate production.
    Go ‘Gate.

    at this point (and maybe it'll get better) we simply don't have the speed nor skill to make Princeton pay for its aggressive forecheck...feel better IBT...

    2 goals...Gee, I guess that better than 1.5 goals...passive (again) in third period...Benson to the rescue as usual...should I even bother watching Q-Pac tomorrow? One way or another this (no goal scoring, no PP, no penalty kill) has to stop...are we listening Nicki Moore?

    The positive spin on here is very entertaining...especially when there isn't anything positive and there hasn't been for a decade.
    Not to mention our abysmal lack of postseason success and nonexistent tournament titles/hardware.
    In our inaugural trip to Dublin, we laid a goose egg vs. Northeastern 6-0 in the consy.

    This program needs divine intervention. My loyalty and appreciation for Vaughan's service turned to bitterness years ago. He should do what WSOC coach Brawn just did; I think she saw the program beginning to struggle a bit and after a tremendous career, she called it quits.

    When you see a program struggling a bit, you don't quit. You hitch up your boots, recruit like mad, and try to keep a successful program going. My guess is she felt it was time to retire, not leave the team because she had no support or couldn't rebuild. Kudos to Brawn for a tremendous job over the years.

    The hockey program has been struggling for years; hopefully the addition of new assistant coaches and more emphasis on recruiting in different geographic areas will right the ship.

    Re: Colgate 2019-20

    TchrBill...my sentiments exactly...DV's good guy, has been a real asset to Colgate for 1/4 of a century...but the last half of his career has been disappointing in Hamilton (save The Class of 2016)...no one on this thread has ever questioned the effort and commitment ON THE ICE from the players and the coaches...it's recruiting pure and simple and, at least from that perspective, I am somewhat optimistic...Colton Young's younger brother looks like a very good recruit and our assistants have inked other decent players in (primarily) 2021...the progress (or lack thereof) of the program is what we're concerned with and, sadly, that may conflict with the lives of individuals who have been good representatives of our school...it's not fun and has never been personal...quality wins outside the conference have been few and far between (2013-14 an exception)...very few tournament titles, no ECAC titles, no NCAA wins...I think we're all pretty reasonable people here and no one should expect a UMD, BU, Denver, Notre Dame program here...but we do (and should) expect quite a bit more than we are currently receiving, especially with a $38M facility to promote...

    Re: Colgate 2019-20

    I think any time we win it’s a quality win, especially at home against a good team.

    Want some optimism Colgate fans? Take a look at the ECAC standings. I know it’s early but after the big 3 there’s a huge dropoff. Who’s going to finish 4th? Qpac? Dartmouth? Brown? Dare I say Colgate? With continued improvement from our freshmen and (hopefully) ANY improvement from the power play, who knows? Yeah I guess I’m dreaming but why not?

    How about it Shabby?

    Colgate is winning Cornellesque style, good defense, good goaltending, very low scoring games. But this year even the Big Red have scoring, averaging about five goals a game, #1 in the country in GPG. If we could just eke out one more goal a game our record would be great, well over .500, until we get some more scoring wins are going to remain at a premium. I'll take three points every weekend and be happy, should have had four this weekend though.

    Right now it's Cornell, Harvard, and Clarkson, after that, fourth thru twelvth is a crapshoot, no team has really ascerted itself.
    I'm fairly happy tied for fourth and 3-2-1 in ECAC standings, our best start in awhile and, we can't drop for two weeks assuming no league games next weekend.

    My point exactly. And if the power play ever gets going that would give us (at least) the one extra goal a game you’re talking about.

    Interesting note on the USCHO top 20, Colgate this season is 2-2-2 against all those teams receiving votes (QU 1-0-0) Umass Lowell (1-0-1) BC (0-1-0) Clarkson (0-1-0) Providence (0-0-1). Note bad if you ask me.

    Re: Colgate 2019-20

    It is starting to get exciting.
    Colgate team went from Dublin to Galway, but have been settled into Belfast for days.
    Motorcoach tour of 20 or so Colgate fans/parents arrived in Belfast this morning after two days in Dublin.
    Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Dinner at Titanic Experience for all four teams and parent/fan groups.
    PWR 40 Colgate opens against PWR 44 Princeton on Friday (though it is nowhere to be found on CHN app schedule), with PWR 32 New Hampshire taking on PWR 22 Northeastern.
    Happy Thanksgiving, and Go ‘Gate!!

    Re: Colgate 2019-20

    I am at SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland, for this afternoon’s Hockey East contest between New Hampshire and Northeastern.
    This evening’s non-conference match-up will be Colgate vs. Princeton.
