Hey could you guys be kind enough to share some information about the 11-12 Redhawks? We know a lot about the studs you lost from last year, particularly Camper and Miele, as well as a bit about your goaltending tandem and Smith. But what about the rest? What can we expect to see?

Looked like Rico was keen on keeping the McKenzie/Coleman/Biggs line together. Best guesses for who Reilly skates with?

Smith-Czarnik-tHirsch
CMac-Coleman-Biggs
Wideman-Vogelhuber-Tomassioni
Mullin-Mason-Cook/Paulazzo/Tiesling

I'd hope they to see smith czarn BIGGS. I know The Hirsch doesnt play small, but even with all the scoring talent on that second line it just reminds me of the broadstreet bullies. spread some of the muscle out.

I would love to see a Smith-Czarnik-Biggs line as well. That 2nd line was the only one that remained unchanged between Friday and Saturday this weekend, so anyone's guess what that could mean, if anything.

I think RHBM is, so we'll have at least 1 fan there!

We have a very, very young team. Dressing 6-7 freshmen and trying to replace ~50% of our scoring from last season. There is a lot of talent out there, however the offense isn't really clicking on a consistant basis yet, but that is to be expected after only a week or so of practice with so much turnover.

I'll write more later when I stop cursing at the Tigers for leaving runner after runner on base. :mad:

I'm not sure we can say they're 'inconsistant' just yet. We don't have a good enough sample to know what 'consistant' means for this group.

That being said, so far, through 2 games, we've seen some wonderful gimpses at their speed and stick work. But they definitely had spacing issues and they're still learning to mesh and play together. Consistancy, however, is something we won't be able to properly gauge until aroung the end of november. Just my opinion.

Arguing semantics a bit, but that is what I was going for :)

Yup! 4 hour drive for me. I'll be there with 2 others and we'll definitely be ready for some loud and proud renditions of the Fight Song.

2008/anyone else - If you are going to need a place to stay, let me know and we may be able to go in on a hotel room. It's impossible to get anything in town but there are plenty of options about 20 miles out.

I don't have anything official, but the word (rumor) around O-town is that Murphy broke something (ankle, leg) and will be out for a while. No one was speculating if surgery was needed, but it was not good. What a horrible break (no pun intended) for this kid. If he plays like he did this first weekend, he will be a wildly popular player for Miami, assuming he can get back to good health and get that jump back. With all that energy and work ethic, he is the perfect role player. And, what a great effort he made on the play when he was injured. Very sad to see that happen on the first weekend of your career. I sure hope he can come back, but you hate to see an injury to a player that depends on his wheels the way Murphy does.

Agreed. He was just trying to make something happen out of nothing he lost control. I felt awful for the kid when he was trying to crawl off the ice under his own power but he couldn't move. It would be nice to get more information because a broken bone is much easier to deal with than ligament damage.

Anyone else find the use of an exclamation mark in that sentence...odd?

I believe General Admission but I wasn't the one to order the tickets so I'm not sure.

Yes, the intern who tweets for Hodge must be a weird dude.
