    Oh goodie, new point of speculation. Frankly, you may not know how to write in proper sentences, but you usually aren't wrong with the information you put up here.

    I'll put in the first guess: Malchuk and AAG for co-captains, with A's being Rabbani and O'Grady (big long shot, I know).
    I never liked having two captains, but if that is what is going to happen, I believe that one should be a defenseman. Malchuk seems to have the inside track, so I would go with Bailen as the second. AAG and Rabbani would be good choices for assistants. JMO

    It's too bad that Pat Cullen is still a bit in the shadows. "Just average" his sophomore year, but started to make some strides last year. Hopefully, like Helfrich, he returns to strong form this upcoming year.

    Today is 24 May 2011. There are 130 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.

    We have Bergin and Bailen to fill that void. Quarterbacks are nice, but you really need someone Cornell players can dive in fro- er, someone to plant an attacking forward on his rear.

    I have been meaning to do this for quite a while, but I finally got around to it. I posted a poll http://board.uscho.com/showthread.ph...8-RPI-Recruits asking which recruits do you expect to see on the team next season. I made it public because I expect some non-RPI fans to post meaningless responses. I included some (e.g., Melanson), who undoubtedly won't come this year, for completeness sake.

    Not quite, Ralph. I was referring to the seven game suspension that was handed down by the USHL to Luke Curadi after THE FIRST GAME, basically for being 9 inches taller than another player after laying a hit.
    I was "a bit" off.

    Dubuque felt that they were being screwed by the USHL since they said that they were promised a third foreign exemption. My guess was that FlagDUDE08 was referring to something similar by the ECAC to RPI. For example, they could disagree with the NCAA's granting of Malchuk's medical redshirt.

    Now I'll wait for FD08's explanation.
