'If they beat CM' ???? Right now they pretty much have to beat CM or else they and the dopes over at the MIAA are all crazy
Walpole has 4 really good F's and 3 really good D, outstanding goalie. Drop off in talent is drastic. Zero depth. They hang in first round, maybe survive if goalie and studs have the stamina. Fast start is needed for them. If they go down early they will be like the Russians in 1980, won't know how to handle it. Forget about 2nd round. They won't be exposed, they will be embarrassed. Speed, physicality and skill level will kill them.
Second round? Isn't the play-in game one game? CM just needs to keep the shifts short, bring all four lines and move the puck and it's "hello to the D-1 State Public School Championship" were Walpole belongs.
Walpole lost to the last good team they played.
