The older Mike gets, the more he sounds like Norm Macdonald. I find this extremely comforting.

It's got to be way less than that. We may need to win the next 4 if we don't win the ECAC's. Goinig something like 4-2 the rest of the way won't change our RPI much, and both Hockey East and NCHC could very well have tournament champions who are currently below us.

Not only that but there are conferences without having any team in the top ten so we are most definitely not safe

I’m in an absolute terrible mood as both the basketball and hockey teams shat all over their playoff hopes. I’m getting real tired of the hockey team having a late season collapse against terrible teams. Now we’re gonna have to win both next weekend and sweep our quarterfinal series to feel decent about our NCAA chances.

We tend to struggle with defensively sound teams that lack firepower more than we do with the most high-powered teams. Both opponents this weekend clogged passing lanes well and didn't give up many odd man rushes.

If it makes you feel any better about our prospects next weekend, Brown will likely still be backstopped by its backup, who isn't exactly tearing it up. Caron is injured. And the much vaunted (by Grady) Bulldog renaissance isn't all that impressive. Union and Quinnipiac both doubled them up on shot attempts, and, well, our possession game is very strong, this weekend's results notwithstanding.

Harvard, meanwhile, has a very tough roadtrip against two hungry teams, one of whom (Clarkson) they never play well against. But surely the masters of BS overtime will prevail.

For the quarters, I'm getting the strong feeling that we'll see Clarkson again. But I'd rather see them than Colgate (can't happen), Yale (Pearson), or Brown (Caron), who have the kind of goalies that can steal games. Honestly, I'm pretty annoyed Cooper Black (Dartmouth) is a freshman, and particularly that he's not our freshman. Dartmouth is going to be a tough out for whomever draws them.

Have you noticed that we always seem to have small goalies? Watching Shane, he just kind of shrinks into the net. We don’t need a 6’6” keeper like Clarkson, but 6’1” would be good. They claim Shane is 6’0”. Lol.

Don't get me started.

I know everyone (else) loved Andy Iles… But I saw Yale open him up like a bad can of tuna in Atlantic City his freshman year, and I think Schafer playing him for that championship game was one of the worst decisions I've ever seen him make as a coach. Should've played Garman, who was better statistically and was playing hotter down the stretch. Harvard did the same thing the next year. 2013 happened. And then in 2014, the Union juggernaut ended Iles's time as "the guy."

Yeah, Iles could steal a game every once in a while, but we are not the team for that kind of goalie. Give me a big brick any day. Like that Scrivens kid.

In my day we could win a national championship either way, Dryden or Cropper. Of course the team scored a lot more goals, too.

I was never keen on Andy Iles as a player. And I'm saying that as someone who shared a few classes with him for the better part of four years. Easily the least formidable of the goaltenders I've seen since following Cornell hockey

St Lawrence also clogged our offensive zone preventing really good looks and second chances. Clarkson forechecked like crazy, reminding me of our Harkness-era teams.

I think I'd put Galadja at the top and Scrivens second, but I'm not certain.

Scrivens still holds the NHL record for saves in a shutout. Those Edmonton "defenses" didn't do him any favors.

Yes, but Arthur quite obviously introduced the Saturday crew from '03 The ESPN video didn't pick up anything but a muffle of his voice.

I assume the few that were there from the1973 team were introduced on Friday but that was even less clear as I watched it live.

The ‘03 team was not introduced individually either. Arthur just briefly mentioned Vesce as the leading scorer and Leneveu’s goaltending accomplishments since both of them were there. I know Moulson and Murray definitely weren’t there.

How does the matrix predict the likelihood of future outcomes? For example, let’s say the 10th best team in KRACH plays the 25th best team. The 25th best team is at home. What odds does the model give the 25th best team to win? To my knowledge, there is no complete explanation of this anywhere. In past years, the model has yielded outcomes that are absurd. For example, a few years ago it gave each of several of the top seeds in the ECAC a >95% chance of winning their best-of-three quarterfinal series. That does not comport with the reality of hockey, which includes far too much randomness for the likelihood of a best-of-three series to be that certain. Several other similar absurdities led me to believe the model vastly overrates the likelihood of the higher ranked team winning. Which is to say, Cornell never had a 93% chance of making the NCAAs. That 93% chance was based on Cornell having an extremely high likelihood of beating Clarkson, StL, Yale, Brown, and their quarterfinal opponent.

It is impossible to “disprove” a probabilistic model, but until the publishers of the model put forth a detailed explanation of how the predictions are calculated, I’m going to continue to believe it is unreliable.

if someone was to go thru the last 2 games and stop the video as the scoring chances were showing up and ask you how many goals we would score I would think the answer would be like 10+

You could feel it sat as chance after chance nothing went in that they would lose on a simple play that led to a 2 on 1 for a tap in goal..

even the fact we lost 3 in a row with the amount of quality chances and not for a lack of effort or total lack of play on defense..

After further review of the actual www, the replay shows the top of CHNs probability matrix page has the 3xplanation.


These are the results of 20,000 Monte Carlo simulations of the remaining games prior to Selection Day. The winner of each game in the simulation was determined randomly, weighted by KRACH. When that simulation was completed -- playing out the six conference tournaments -- a Pairwise was calculated based upon those results.

The numbers in the chart represent the percentage of times (among the total simulations run) each team placed in that spot in the Pairwise. Note that just placing in the top 16 does not indicate the team made it, due to automatic bids (AQ).

Please see below the chart for more information.

2 minute minor for not bothering to read

10 minute game misconduct for ranting after not bothering to read



Ps, 10 v 25 is hvd vs. UMD. Their respective krach numbers are 215.3 H vs 154.1 UMD. That puts hvd at 58% to win.

Hvd Win probability = 215.3/(215.3+154.1) = 58%

Down to 15, yet still given 93% chance on chn.

They don't update that matrix in real time. The current model now shows 50%
How does the matrix predict the likelihood of future outcomes? For example, let’s say the 10th best team in KRACH plays the 25th best team. The 25th best team is at home. What odds does the model give the 25th best team to win? To my knowledge, there is no complete explanation of this anywhere. In past years, the model has yielded outcomes that are absurd. For example, a few years ago it gave each of several of the top seeds in the ECAC a >95% chance of winning their best-of-three quarterfinal series. That does not comport with the reality of hockey, which includes far too much randomness for the likelihood of a best-of-three series to be that certain. Several other similar absurdities led me to believe the model vastly overrates the likelihood of the higher ranked team winning. Which is to say, Cornell never had a 93% chance of making the NCAAs. That 93% chance was based on Cornell having an extremely high likelihood of beating Clarkson, StL, Yale, Brown, and their quarterfinal opponent.

It is impossible to “disprove” a probabilistic model, but until the publishers of the model put forth a detailed explanation of how the predictions are calculated, I’m going to continue to believe it is unreliable.

After further review of the actual www, the replay shows the top of CHNs probability matrix page has the 3xplanation.

Hvd Win probability = 215.3/(215.3+154.1) = 58%
I literally wrote my above post immediately after reading the exact web page you’re quoting, because it’s not at all clear what “weighted by KRACH” means. In addition to CHN, there is also the playoffstatus.com website which to my knowledge offers no explanation either.

Also, what you just said is incorrect. Harvard is 14th in KRACH and UMD is 19th. My above post asks about 10th in KRACH vs 25th in KRACH. (Notice that I specifically asked about KRACH because right before posting I read the exact webpage you accused me of not reading.)

But let’s assume for the sake of argument that you’re correct, and your interpretation of “weighted by KRACH” is accurate. In that case, you’ve proven my point that this is an absolutely abysmal way of predicting future outcomes. Let’s say #1 Minnesota plays #60 Dartmouth. Per your formula, that gives Minnesota a 570.9/(570.9+25.7)=96% chance of winning, which is completely absurd.

By the way, per this method, Minnesota’s change of beating Cornell? 78%. This is one of many insane results one derives from abmarks’ interpretation of “weighted by KRACH.” I hope for the sake of the model that this interpretation is NOT true. Repeatedly overweighting the better team’s chance of winning (which has been an obvious problem with these models for years) yields ridiculous outcomes like saying Cornell had a 93% chance of making the NCAA going into last weekend.

Yes, this is what "weighted by KRACH" means, and yes, KRACH greatly overestimates the win probability of the higher-rated team.

how many times do we think Minn would beat Dartmouth if they played 100x.. not 96 for sure. But given OT rules so no ties they probably win 70-80? Given that why would any formula put them at 96%

I'd generally be okay with assuming that the best team would beat the worst team 90% or more, though maybe not 96%.

I guess Dartmouth is the 2nd worst ahead of Lindenwood. And this year is a bit of an exception because I think Dartmouth is a good deal better than their record based on goal differential.

2. Sam Malinski, RHD, Cornell-ECAC: Malinski has been a top defenseman in college this season. He has excellent playmaking ability. He makes a lot of difficult passes in the offensive zone and has the ability to run a pro power play with his vision and shot. His skating is solid too and he can create with his skill and feet. Malinski isn’t the biggest defender but he competes well enough that I think he has a shot to be a good pro.

12. Travis Mitchell, LHD, Cornell-ECAC: Mitchell has played a large role for Cornell this season. The senior defenseman and team captain often lined up on both special teams. He’s a big-body defenseman who competes well and could be a solid pro defender. His skating is fine for his size but not a major selling point. Whether he can move pucks versus men will be Mitchell’s main challenge as I wouldn’t call him a natural offensive type.

In the article, Pronman does give this caveat:


While I spent many hours on this article, I do not cover the free-agent world as extensively as I do the NHL Draft or drafted NHL prospects. Thus I cannot claim to have a complete, comprehensive scope of the free-agent world. There will be numerous players who sign that I don’t have listed here, but excluding them isn’t necessarily a commentary on the players; I may simply have never gotten around to watching them.

This reminds me of when I was in school, overlapping with Joe Nieuwendyk. My friends and I had no clue of how good he was. After all, the previous stars here-guys like Gary Cullen or Duanne Moeser-put up big numbers and never made a dent in the NHL. How clueless we were in those times where college hockey had virtually zero profile.

I'm bummed but it wasn't a disaster. We weren't our sharpest and still clearly outplayed both teams. And while neither Clarkson nor SLU are fantastic, they're two of the decent-er ECAC teams.

We were bound to drop some games we should have won eventually.

Or maybe I should say it was a disaster, but it doesn't mean we're doomed going forward.

Rich, thank you. I forgot to use the sardonic font in my post.

I was at Lake Placid in ‘70, so even at my advanced age, I remember Brian Cropper was the goalie for our undefeated team. I was in grad school for Dryden’s entire tenure at Cornell and was at the Syracuse War Memorial Auditorium in ‘67. BTW, I also saw Dryden skate as a forward in one of his freshman games, against a Junior B team I think. Ned, or rather Pop Harkness, was having some fun.

Who was the next Cornellian to make the NHL after Ken Dryden? Or any pro league?

Fullan, the same season.

Larry Fullan played 4 games for the Washington Capitals during the 1974-75 season.

Brian McCutcheon played 17 games for the Detroit Red Wings that same season.

Not sure which one got there first.

Thanks, another thing to fix.

Mccutcheon was first of the two - he was playing in November. Fullan didn't play his few games until much later in the season for the Caps.

Apropos of the NYT, the daily newsstand price is $4 as of this month.

$120 a month to have your conscience assuaged for paying low taxes while people starve seems like an excellent deal.
Styles of The Times would say staying thin.

When I was in HS (1961-64), students could buy it for 15 cents per school week.

Living in New England, we subscribe to delivery of only the Sunday Times. The subscription includes complete electronic access to all daily issues of the Times.

Use the money you save by only paying for Sunday deliveries to buy a nice iPad, install the Times app, and spend a few dollars on a decent stylus pen, and you're good to go.

If you really want to be extravagant, put some more of the money you save on daily delivery into a good Zugu case for your iPad and research & buy a decent screen protector.

Dropping off our daughter in Ithaca for the new semester. We go to Collegetown Bagels and lo and behold a flock of hockey players are there getting food. My daughter happens to stand next to Shane in line. She is 5’9”. She is the same height as Shane.

This was in response to a much earlier conversation about our history of petite goalies.

He is listed at 6’0 on the Cornell site, 6’0 on elite prospects, 6’1 on hockeydb. For whatever that’s worth.

Not worth much. I am 6'2.5" I am more than a half a head taller than Ian. Take a look at last season's games with Sucks. Gibson is allegedly 6'1" and watch how he stands in relation to the net as opposed to Ian's relative stature. This goes back to the conversation from February. I like Ian a lot, but drives me crazy that we always have undersized goalies.

Quick > big? Maybe? I dunno.

Do big quick goalies go anywhere but CHL?

Gibson, Caron, Perets just last season in the ECAC. Not talking 6’6” but 6’1” or even an actual 6’0”. I trust my eyes and Ian looks noticeably smaller than those three for example.
