    Just to clarify, I want the Kaz here but having 3 scholly keepers on the roster at once is a waste.

    FWIW, theres a rumor floating around that Regg Simon is out as head coach of the Bucs. Havent seen any other news on this besides that post on FYC.

I think it's RPI or St.Johns (Winnipeg's AHL team)...and looking at that scenario it would seem RPI would be the way to go. As Doc would say, "just my 2-cents".

    Jake Wood, ’93 (Jr. Bobcats) 5-8/160, F—Energy player who creates a lot and can bury the puck. Will be a top producer at The Gunnery this season. Remains to be seen if the senior from Ontario can be a finisher at the DI level. We’ll find out though, because he’s headed to RPI.

    Charles Manley, ’96 (Selects Hockey Academy) 5-8/140, D — Has really light feet and is a fluid skater. Brother of former NTDP product Richard Manley. If he can get some of his brother’s height (6’5”) he will shoot up recruiters’ charts.

    Drew Melanson, ‘95 (New Jersey Freeze) 5’10”, 150 lbs., F—RPI recruit can really fly. His speed is incredibly difficult to defend against. Really puts defenders on their heels. We watched him play a very good Cape Cod Whalers team and he was a standout. If he adds a little more finish to his game he could turn into a real steal for the Engineers. Will be a junior at Delbarton.

    We thought 5’11” Riley Bourbonnais, a ’93 LW from the Berkshire School, did a fine job, and adapted quickly to the pace.

    We liked RPI recruit Chris Bradley, a 6’1”, 190 lb. ’93 defenseman from Williamsville, NY. Solid. Nothing flashy.
    Cannot comment about the others-but as has been noted we have seen Melanson a number of times. He is by far the fastest skater on the ice in every game. I do not think I can recall ever seeing anyone at his stage being this fast-and he gets to high speed within a couple of strides. I hope he can retain that asset while adding a little upper body strength and size.

    Add this. The info was posted earlier by redhead.

    Two players that we regrettably missed were both from Salisbury: ’95 defenseman Thomas Welsh and ’95 forward Anthony DiFruscia. Welsh is a 6’0, 195 lb. Penn State recruit for the fall of 2013. DiFruscia, like Berisha, is from Ontario and is a high OHL draft pick, going in the second round to the Niagara Icedogs. The 5’10, 180 lb. junior played last season for the Welland Tigers and had a 50-52-102 – and over a hundred penalty minutes -- in only 59 games. He’s been offered by Penn State and RPI but is talking to a lot of schools. He doesn’t have as much flash and dash as Berisha. He’s more of an up-and-down-the-wing power forward. A good honest player with a high skill level, and a good student, he has Ivies inquiring.

I thought he had and outstanding weekend, he seems to be hitting his stride in the offensive end -- far more comfortable- taking his play to the net. Good things ahead for him IMO. Put him on a line with Z next year...that HAS to be enough to get you back to HFH !!!!
    We are hopeful tht next year we can do just that. Purely a health issue thing for us. I love the idea of putting 2 big horses together on one line. You have to be a bit selective though as that works well in match ups against some teams and not others. I would be more likely to do that at home games when we have the last change of personnel on the ice. I really thought Tinordi and Malchuk was a good pairing this year-but again, it has to be when the match up is favorable. I am certainly no hockey strategist, but i really do believe in having the right lines out there agianst each other.

    What's so bad about a low-scoring hockey game? Granted, when you live in a basketball town you're not used to people understanding the concept of "defense". However, both RPI/Yale games I listened to were exciting, and those were low-scoring with tremendous goaltending and defensive blocks on both sides.

    One thought I had on that light, though: Could the coach be trying to build some confidence in the scoring ability of the players by basically telling them to "go for it"?

After reading that, maybe by the end of the year if "Kazzy's" GA seems high that might be one of the contributing factors. BTW Team USA plays tonight against Sweeden @ 10:30....
