    This. Just like the NHL, if the other team wears orange and black, there's only one thing you do: HIT THEM!
    Plus, we haven't seen Curadi play very much at all, what, 2 games this year?
    On top of all of this: what's happening thus far isn't working. Why not switch it up a little?
    Why not switch up a lot? Mix up the lines and the defense-shuffle the deck and deal a new hand. Most important-during the games-when things are not going well or working-make the changes in what we do right then. We do not seem to adapt to what other teams are doing to us. We are very predictable.
    Take the shortest distance to the puck and arrive in ill humor

      I remember during one of the Union games Coach tried doing this jumble. And it wasn't obvious special teams, either. It was a complete mix-up of the lines to try to confuse Leaman. Sadly, we had a last-minute breakdown, and "32 Seconds" brought about new meaning...

SA has included the fans in the RPI Hockey family and we should support him and the players even during the rough patches.
        Well said, Aspydad

              Pierre McGuire & Eddie Olzeck talking about Oates, Adessa &,"that great RPI team of '85" during the Sabre/Devils game. McGuire saying he thought Oates may have been the greatest college player of all time. Discussion started by asking if Oates should be in the HOF. All said absolutely.

                JL, Higgs and O'Grady (all 3 being centers) have been back for what, 2, 3 games? In their absence, there's been constant line shifting going on up front. Appert even referred to the line turmoil when those guys were out. The d-pairings have been shuffled the last few games also.

                I think what the forwards lack is a bit of timing and chemistry that only comes with consistent practice and game time together. Defensively, we don't play with much of an edge and we're not making good decisions with the puck...a good chunk of our GA have been from turnovers in the d zone... ill advised passes in front of or behind the net, etc.

                The good news is its fixable stuff. We're dressing 10 or 11 underclassmen every night..its gonna take some time people. Hopefully the injury bug stays away and we can gel a bit on O. That's how I see it anyway.

                    Im all in...I will never turn my back on this team......Just speaking for myself Seth and his staff have forgotten more about Hockey than I'll ever know...so I will leave it to them with every confidence that it will all work out and we will become the team we all want to be...remember we lost the nucleus of this team 2 years ago...2 players that this was going to be their year to shine and it would have been bright...but we move on....thats not an excuse or a 'if only it could have been' thats the fact of the matter.....I suspect the plan was to have this be JDA and BP's third and final year but it didn't happen...take this team and add back in JDA,BP and Yorkie and wonder...thats not something you recover from quickly take the Edmonton Oilers and remove Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier or The Islanders and remove Mike Bossey and Bryan Trottier or for that fact the Bruins and remove Bobby Orr(the real great one) and Phil Esposito I believe you would have seen much different results in fact after they left or retired 2 of those teams still haven't recovered and one just got back to the mountain last year.So IMO we are in a mini re rebuild...we have top recruits in the pipeline and better days are coming Im sure of it...this team is not done yet but it is a team that needs to over achieve a little...The Union game was a dismal performance and Im sure they're aware of it...so lets hope thats the bottom and its all upward from here on in...LETS GO RED !!!

                        Maybe you, Aspydad & I can organize a sing-a-long at Babo's next drop in. Next home game will be around Epiphany.

                          Nicely said. Perhaps this little 10 day hiatus will allow them to refocus.

                            Wicked-The reshuffle was my minor point. My major point was the lack of our ability to change tactics during a game and between periods. I am in no way knocking this team-it has great talent especially in the lowerclass years. The onus is on the coaches. We come out well and skate Plan A-whether it is dump and chase, or long passes out of the D zone. When the other teams figure this out and stop it-we continue with Plan A. We simply do not alter what we do. Some teams are offensively good enough to come out with a Plan A and it works-and when other teams try to make changes-Plan A still works simply because they are just plain good enough. At this stage, we are not. Ther have been times in the past when RPI was so potent that Plan A was all we ever needed-but not now. I look at hockey as a 60 minute war-with little individual battles and skirmishes. To win, though, you need to be constantly moving troops aroundand finding new ways to attack and defend. Just my 2

                              I certainly agree with that, but I wonder at times if this is somehow endemic to the hockey culture at RPI, as we had similar discussions in the Fridgen era.

                                Some voters must have something against him considering how often he has now been passed over.
