Atlantic City! Wow what a great idea, and if that doesn't work they can move it to Texas

ECAC website has an annoucement about the tournament moving to Atlantic City in 2011.
I was a supporter of Albany, but the tournament never took off for many reasons. RPI never made the field. the league. The arena and the city just never did a great job marketing it and many people didn't like Albany.
A destination site like Atlantic City may help; if it is promoted and marketed well.After witnessing some of the cluster you know whats the officials turned games into last year when I know ECACHL officials were in the house I said to myself there must be more to it than I think...there must be a reason they let this go on they just can't be that stupid...well guess what they are just that stupid !!!!!!

Providence or Hartford doesn't look so bad now.

Good Luck getting the local fans(RPI /Union) to drive 5 hours to the tournament if neither team is in it, and further for most other schools.

I work in downtown Albany and I do realize it can be pretty sketchy and the city hasn't seemed to care if the tournament stayed or not, but there had to be a better option than going further away from most ECAC schools, to a city where you can see a pawn shop on every corner. Guess the days of me pulling a nooner at B-Way Joes on the Friday of the ECAC's are over after this year.

No, they still look pretty darn bad.

My favorite part about all of this is that all the haters pleaded with something other than Albany. Be careful what you wish for, haters...!

Then again, most of them, like Got 6, wear hockey helmets all year round.

Jerry D'Amigo and Brandon Pirri are the #9 and #12 ranked incoming forwards according to InCH http://www.insidecollegehockey.com/7Archives/Features/0910/recruitsfwd_0801.htm.

The class ranking will come out on Wednesday. Will we make it for the third year in a row?

I'm holding my breath in anticipation. INCH is ever-so-slightly ahead of The Hockey News, The Sporting News, and the Food Network when it comes to outstanding college hockey coverage.

As Mike Machnik used to say, "it's a ceramic dalmation", but it is something to talk about. (The reference is to a meaningless or worthless prize in a quiz show.)

Question that I'm sure has already been answered... did Bergin get a medical redshirt last year?

RPI Athletics has its season outlook on the site http://www.rpiathletics.com/news/2009/9/29/MHOCK_0929094134.aspx

Anyone find it odd that Beauregard was the only returning player not listed? The article says how RPI returns 22 players, and then goes on to mention 21 of them by name. I know he's only played in one game his first two years here, but come on. They mention Harkenrider (the 'practice goalie') despite him not seeing any playing time.

Just an oversight, perhaps?

Likely just an oversight, although Beauregard did suit up for a game last year.

I didn't bother mentioning him in my gleefully one-sided preview because if he's playing at all this year, RPI is in big trouble.

In honor of Christian Jensen, today is 30 September 2009. There are 3 days until RPI's next game.


This is based upon 3 October for the start of next season.

He could have improved, although I agree with you, it's unlikely that he will play.

BTW, nice choices for the media poll.

For everyone except RC. :D

InCH picked our recruiting class 9th in the NCAA and 2nd to Harvard in the ECAC http://www.insidecollegehockey.com/7Archives/Features/0910/recruitsteam_0801.htm. We have made the top 15 each of the last three years, and six players, 2 per year, have been picked for the position lists, Brutlag, Helfrich, Bergin, York, and D'Amigo, and Pirri. I am pretty sure that none were selected prior to 2007.

One would think having made the top 15 the last couple years-the results on the ice would have been better. :( Perhaps this will be the turnaround year:)

Remember that we didn't get much out of last year's selections last year. Bergin got hurt after 6 games, and York was the backup goalie until late in the season when he showed his worth.
