What a difference two years makes. The coaches and the media both pick us to finish fourth, although we did receive one first-place vote in the coaches' poll. We didn't have a single player selected før the preseason All-ECAC team.

Let's hope that we can surprise a few people. I have faith in Mike!!

4th is pretty optimistic.

I just want to see them play better as the season progresses and then maybe put together a little post-season run. It will take some time to rebuild.

Let's be honest. We have an untested goalie and a lot of underclassmen.

I'm happy with 4th, especially since the top two are teams that played last year. And #3 is Sucks, who always profit from poll inflation.

Indeed, a lot rides on hoping at least one of the new goalies step up. If so we have plenty of talent on the roster.

I've only been a fan since McKee, but I don't think I've ever seen bad goalie play out of Cornell. A little afraid of what that would look like. Scrivens' first year when he split time with Davenport was a little ugly, maybe.

Written like a true engineer:

Some may be surprised to see Cornell only in 3rd after 2 straight Cleary Cups, but they definitely belong to be here.

Unfortunately, Union still has not released their 2021-22 roster because they suck. And, This may be a surprise to some people, but this Yale team is absolutely garbage.

Tell us what you really think!! :-)

I had to read that twice myself. Does that mean I am not a true engineer?

Wait! I am an Engineer, not an engineer. :-)

Weren't Howe and Shane fairly well regarded goalie recruits? Have they just not developed as expected? They would've needed to recruit a successor to Galajda even had the pandemic cancelation not happened last year.

Howe’s final 2 were Cornell & Boston College, so it’s fair to say he was highly recruited.

And actually it's 3 straight Cups. 1 was shared with Q.

So I guess RPI Engineers can't count either. This CU Engineer can count, I hopedribble

FWIW, Neutral Zone ranked both at 3.50 stars which is mediocre for D-I hockey players. See [www.neutralzone.net].

Two years ago, Howe played in the BCHL which is considered an offensive league, so he probably is somewhat better than his GAA there. He shared goalie duties there for a while with RPI's incoming Jack Watson.
