    Re: RPI Off-Season Thread 2011: There Will be a Title Here Next Season

    Today is 28 April 2011. There are 156 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.

    Princeton would be very tough and have a number of great young forwards, but who knows what will happen with them losing their coach. Same for Union. Cornell has a nasty habit of bouncing back from down years.

    Teams I think will show the most improvement (in no particular order): Colgate, Harvard, St. Lawrence

    Teams that will drop off the most: Union (this one is in order), Dartmouth, Clarkson
    Ya Think...Harvard,St.lawrence & Colgate won 7,6,4 games respectivley...and Union lost there Coach and #1 Goalie.....Clarckson lost there coach and most likely some recruits to follow(can you say turmoil)The only prediction I will make is the 'tute for a SOLID top 4 team...I think Bryce is going to surprise everyone.I think SA plannned on Alan leaving this year all along and is quite comfotable with Bryce and that was the plan all along.I would not be surprised to see Diebold come in before Kassdorf regardless of what his coach says because I think he is more prepared coming out of the USHL.JMO that and $8.00 will get you a starbucks coffee !

    It means that is the person who is signed in, namely yourself. There will be a plus next to anyone who has friended you.

    I think that the offseason has really been pretty kind to us, so far (knock on wood). Clearly there was a chance Appert could have left. If we had lost him, our stellar recruiting class (which I think that DrD, I, and others can generally agree is the best we've had in this millennium and probably the best we've had in 25 years) would be in jeopardy. Losing York certainly hurts, but so long as we hold on to Mikey B. and Patty K. and the entire recruiting class shows up as expected, it'll have been a very nice offseason for us.
    Could not agree more-best class I have seen since the early 80's. If they step righ tin and contribut-this coming year will be great. If it takes another year-then watch out for us in 2013.

    It's not like we didn't hear that from another school (neither you nor that other school you mentioned) last year. The best I can say is that we'll see what happens come October.
