    not to mention that if he were to play 1 more year in the USHL he would then be a 21 yr. old FR when he arrives on campus I just don't see that as a scenario that will play out. 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".

    I wouldn't put Tinordi and Z on the same line. We have two many smaller forwards who could use a physical presence on their lines.

I have a strong feeling Appert will ask him to do another year in the USHL -- he needs more time to develop, from what I can see, we don't have any reason to bring him this fall, burning a year of his elgibility, given that we already have Merriam and Diebold. Of course Edmonton and his advisor will likely have a say in this.

    Not real competition for Delbarton today. They just have so much more than the local competition. Josh Melnick is a forward worth watching-but I think he is even smaller than JL was at this stage. He might weigh 135 but he can shoot and score. I wonder how many off this roster will end up in the NCAA in the next couple years?

    Bourbonnais and DeVito are among their teams' leaders offensively. It's still too early to evaluate Bubela. Miller will remain a mystery. He seems to get enough shots. Perhaps they are weak or he telegraphs what he is doing. I agree about Kasdorf. I might as well men ion everyone in the USHL by adding that Bradley appears to be his team's top defenseman, so that's good too.

    As to the others, Melanson is certainly tearing things up in the Prep ranks even when Delbarton goes to New England. I'd love to see him in the USHL next year, but I suspect he will stay in NJ. Zalewski's numbers speak for themselves. Wood also will hopefully go elsewhere next year. I wish that I could find soemthing about Manley online, but I can wait until next season.

    Zalewski's line is now 44-27-28-55-57.

    It must have been an exciting game ending. PG scored at 14:55 and 16:14 of the third to grab a 3-2 lead. With 1:11 left, PG scored an ENG to lead 4-2. Then Vernon was awarded a penalty shot and scored that with 45 seconds left. With 20 seconds left, Zalewski tied it, and then won it 22 seconds into overtime unassisted.

I am a bit surprised by the numbers being put up by Kasdorf however. Even if his team has done poorly, I did not expect his save percentage to fall this far. Just thinking out loud......
    This crew, expecially Zalewski, looks like it could add some punch to the offense. We all know that the numbers do not always transfer when they become frosh in the ECAC, however. Some players are surprises when they reach college, both negative and positive. Look at the hype a lot of people, especially on this forum, gave Laliberte. He came out of the same league as Andrew Caloff of Princeton who was the Ivy League's co-rookie of the year and had 9 goals and 24 assists last season. Laliberte put up slightly better numbers in Juniors, yet has not produced much offensively yet at RPI. Some players take longer to adapt and some never do, so we have to be be patient and see what develops.

    On the plus side, it looks like this current group of Engineers has found their stride. This weekend will be tough, hosting 2 of the top 3 teams in the league, but at least it appears that the team can now compete with the better teams in the league and at least have a shot at pulling out some wins down the stretch. That was not the case a couple of weeks ago. The future looks bright.

    Sort of reminds me of the Thanksgiving tournament game vs. Union a few years ago. Union scores to make it 4-2, everyone starts leaving. RPI scores about 30 seconds later, horn goes off, and everyone turns around. We all know what happened at 59:59, and unfortunately what happened in OT.

    I can't wait to see Zalewski in an RPI jersey.
