Amazing-Ralph combines 2 threads-and it gets incredibly quiet in here. :(

It sure is. :(

MTU's offseason thread has passed us in total posts although it was inevitable.

With it looking like the Rangers will miss the NHL playoffs I will have no sports to follow-unless I want to watch baseball and fall asleep for a few hours:rolleyes:

Today is 5 April 2010. There are 186 days until RPI's next game.


This is based upon 8 October for the start of next season.

Its only a matter of time before an assistant coach wants to test his abilities in a head coach position. As for Fran he was smart to get out before it gets bad. But thats basketball and this is a hockey forum so unless Siena becomes the next D-I school to have hockey we will just move along :D

As for the Colts' outlook, there are only a few certainties-- veteran graduating players will include goalie Doug Carr (UMass-Lowell) and defenceman Guy Leboeuf (RPI Engineers).

"We've got a few guys who are graduating, and we don't know about (captain Jacob Laliberte),'' MacInnis said. "Really, I won't know what's going on until we get into our post-season meetings. Obviously, we will have a lot of guys who are (eligible to) return.'' :eek: It's really hard to believe that he would spend yet another year in the CJHL, but obvously he could go somewhere else also.

(There are a couple of other new Cornwall articles in today's paper, but nothing else relevant to us.)

I hope he can get things worked out soon, what ever the problem/hold up might be and show up in Troy ready to play some hockey this fall.

Laliberte is a '90 while Carr and Leboeuf are '89s. Thus, the latter two can't play Junior hockey anymore and are described as graduating while JL can go back to Cornwall for one more year. I would expect Cornwall's coach to want him to return.

Hopefully, SA is turning on the hard sell. :D

Like you said I really cant see him spending another season in the CJHL. If he was going to spend another year in juniors I would like to see him playing in the USHL.

Sounds like typical mealy-mouthing to me. What kind of player with Laliberte's skill is still playing juniors as a 20 year old? I'm willing to bet it's a case of the Standard-Freeloader just saying "well, we know these guys are out of here, but these guys could all technically be back."

Staying in the CJHL at this point would be treading water. He's got to be off to the next level next season.

If Cornwall's coach is interested in developing players, he wouldn't want Laliberte back.

That's probably a good point about the possible effect on JL of Monty's departure. Heck if he's really that concerned though, maybe we can get him and Curadi together in Dubuque next season. :D

He is also interested in winning. :) I certainly agree that he would be treading water there next season.

Undoubtedly, but I think if you ask most college coaches they're equally interested in developing talent. Each stop on the way up the ladder is filled with folks that aren't going to advance to the next level, but for the ones that will, coaches below the NHL are hoping to see their guys succeed at the next level and aren't going to shed too many tears when they see them move on at such time as they are ready.

I'm willing to bet George Gwozdecky, right now, is more proud of Patrick Wiercoch and Joe Colborne than he is worried about next season.

I don't want to start NHL banter on here, but I have to reply that the Rangers are two points behind 8th place Philly, who has played one more game than the Rangers, with 2 remaining Rangers-Flyers games left. The Rangers control their own destiny with 4 games left while on a 5-0-1 roll and while the primary team team they are fighting with for a playoff spot is on a 2-8-2 roll. I wouldn't give up just yet.

Im being told he hasn't passed the clearinghouse yet and may have not even taken SAT yet. His best buddy Quellette is going overseas to play next season and they love playing together so who knows. Also heard that Major junior may be his destination for next season. Hearing more about options that don't include the word RPI!

But are you hearing about the RPI option also?

Edit: He supposedly took the SATs in March. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think that you can pass the clearinghouse without SAT results. If he hasn't gotten the results back, he thus couldn't have passed the clearinghouse. I can see that a potential recruit couldn't get past RPI's admissions, but I don't think that RPI would make an offer to someone who couldn't pass the clearinghouse. RPI's admissions must be significantly stricter.

My fear here is that perhaps JL is more athlete than student-athlete.
