View Full Version : ECRHA Best Teams - Halfway Point

Its about halfway for most teams in the ECRHA. So who as of right now are the best teams in D1 right now? And pled your case. For me it would have to be:
1. West Chester - obvious bc of the skill at all positions especially there ability to score w. Lucente and the goaltending
2. Neumann - couple really skilled guys and only reason there not #1 is bc not sold on goaltending
3. Stony Brook - beaten a couple good teams, curious to see how they go moving forward
5. Towson/West Point
feel free to compare and change who you think should be where. im really curious to see what people think. Also if you want to put down D2 and D3 ecrha im curious to see that as well.

I agree with your top 2 but i think WCU and Neumann are more even then you think, and i think that is because neumann goaltending is probably the reason they are as good as they are right now.
wcu picks up a goalie next semester and who knows if neumann has any 2nd half pickups, tom youmans seems to be on every player sheet but scratched so who know what going on with him, but that can sway things.
stony brook is ok, i think west point is very good hard working.
I would look forward to the neumann/wcu matchup for the 2nd time around

Oh no dont get me wrong i think Neumann is an extremely talented team i think their goaltending is fine. I watched them 2x one against wc and once against temple I just look at west chester and there a complete team they get scoring from everyone. Neumann seems to have one or two guys that really generate offense. Both scary good teams and will battle for the top.
wc's lucente nd st clair r too much for any team to handle someones going to have to figure out something to stop those guys and neumanns jones and ehinger r equally as scary
west point is always a tough team they seem to have close games with everyone so their always in every game.
stonybrook/hostra/towson i feel like watching all three they play pretty similar. Out of three Id have to say stonybrook has the biggest upside. kaszubski/zim/blatchley are doing a lot of damage. Which idk where these guys came bc ive heard of lucente, st clair, ehinger before but who are these guys lol.
seyglinksi of towson and rosa/culot of hofstra are also having great seasons.
all these teams have a lot of fire power and are all capable of beatin eachother, should make for an interesting second half.

From the start I predicted west chester to be the top team and I was right. AS OF NOW...things could always change. I said the grossman/lucente duo would be tough to match up with and with all of their secondary scoring...it definitely makes these guys a super threat. Their only problem is GOALTENDING-and its a huge one. The games ive seen them play that are close are the ones where goaltending becomes an issue. Next semester I believe someone said they are getting the starting tender back so that should help tremendously. Neumann is gonna be tough though. Jones and AJ are playing well, if they had youmans I think they could have a chance to take down wcu. The goaltending for Neumann is much stronger. We will see in the second half of the season! Hopefully my sons team can start winning some games! lets see HA...
