    Simply because percentage wise less defensemen get drafted than forwards (not by much but there are less spots to fill on defense on an NHL roster) PK is more likely to be a 3rd or 4th round pick. Still incredible by RPI standards for defensemen. I still hold out some hope that we may see a second recruit get drafted in a late round but i do think PK is a lock.

    Another factor for Pat is his hockey perigree. His dad got a taste of the show and IMO scouts look at that. Look at Tinoradi's brother going so high last year in entry draft. Teams know these kids have been coached well from a young age.

    Today is 5 May 2011. There are 149 days until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 1 October for the start of next season.

    That is the day that an exhibition game is supposedly scheduled.

    Red, I totally agree with you. Helfrich is by far the most improved player. York and Higgs are also excellent choices. Chase has to be MVP and JFK was the captain even when he was injured.
    I might add that this was a great team to watch all season long.

    Most Improved - Probably either Josh Rabbani or Johnny Rogic.
    Best Defensive - My guess would be Allen York.
    Most Outstanding Freshman - That woul be a toss-up between Johnny Rogic and Brock Higgs, though more likely Brock Higgs.
    Top Scholar - Foss? Not sure; I don't try to snoop into their report cards.
    Community Service - Not sure.

A couple awards should be pretty obvious choices.

    Also, hopefully we'll hear some further details about the schedule next season, how much more work will be done to HFH over the summer and maybe some more info regarding the incoming freshman class.
    Got my new computer yesterday and I'm back. My picks in order; Chase....JFK or Higgs....Rabbani....Bailen....Higgs...not privy to the last but I'll guess JFK. never did give consideration to the goalie for BDP. York certainly fits but Merriam was outstanding in his absence and should've been rewarded with 2-3 more wins. Glad we never had to experience what the loss of Bailen might've meant though.

    The following is from a blog entitled Hockey Hearsay. Seems york is moving up on the depth chart.

    "The Columbus Dispatch reports that goaltender Gustaf Wesslau's short stint in the Blue Jackets' organization is over. He is returning to the Swedish Elite League to play for his former club, Djurgardens IF Stockholm, according to multiple Swedish reports.Wesslau, 26, had a difficult season for AHL Springfield playing behind a young defense. He started the season rehabbing from knee surgery and never found a rhythm. He posted a 12-16-1 record with a 3.17 GAA and .897 save percentage in 31 appearances. Wesslau was signed last offseason to a one-year-deal. Goaltending was a concern all season for the Falcons, who also played five rookie defensemen. Allen York, a late-season addition from RPI, could become the top prospect in goal next season for Springfield. York was 3-1-0 with a 2.04 GAA in four starts."

    Here is the link, scroll down near the end.

Why move it by one position? Knsmith's suggestion makes sense to me. I agree that Pat deserves it, but that isn't the question.
    Using that logic Im going to have Hokydad pull some strings w/his good freind Bobby Orr and see if I can get you and Knsmith invited to the combine next year....I hear your pretty strong on the bike !!!!
