Cornell making any progress on goalie recruits?

Lieb's stats are terrible; he is playing on a weak team.

Other highly rated goalies from Ontario posting good stats this year - Sirman of Kingston; Saunders of Brockville.

Plenty of talented goalies still available.

Chance Lieb has an extraordinarily challenging opportunity in Seguin.

Sirman and Saunders are off to good starts this year. It'll be interesting to see how Sirman does in the WJAC. Not sure how long Saunders is out.
