Time to forget about the implosion that was 2009-10, and look forward to next season. Princeton has announced an incoming class of 10 players here: 6 forwards, 3 defenders, and 1 goaltender replace 9 graduating seniors (+1 team growth). I haven't done a detailed comparative analysis, but the class looks physically big, with 6 of 10 over 6' tall. Defenseman Jeremy Goodman is 6'5"/220!
In terms of replacing Zane, both Alan Reynolds and Mark Condon stepped up and did a good job when they were needed at various occasions last year, and incoming freshman Sean Bonar had a .91 save percentage last year in juniors. I'm pretty confident that goaltending won't be a major issue for the team.
Being unable to score goals and having a weak defense, both as a result of there being many injuries, was the biggest problem, in my opinion. There's no way to tell if this year will be better in that respect; however, the size and nature of this recruiting class seems like it can address these weaknesses, so I'm confident about this year.
It'll be interesting to see if there are any surprises on the schedule this season.
