It's hard to say based on their schedules so far, as both teams have played nothing but weak teams. Rmu played mckendree, bu played Missouri state, both teams winning pretty big. In looking at their rosters, I think it would be a pretty huge embarrassment for rmu if they lost any games this year . I don't know how they have recruited so many kids from new York, Canada, California to come to Peoria to play hockey(d3 silver nonetheless). With the exception of two kids on bradley, everyone is from Illinois. Additionally, the top Robert Morris lines seem to have all come from some sort of junior A/B program. I see Bradley has I think one player( their goalie) that has played juniors. Why aren't some of these rmu kids playing in Chicago atleast for the maroon or gold team?
As for the games I have to say rmu sweeps, unless Bradley's goalie is as good as people here have indicated and can somehow keep them in it. But looking at the stats it appears on paper rmu's goalie is just as good. These should be probably the best games both teams will be playing all year, it seems everyone else kind of falls off after these teams in terms of talent.
