In my opinion defense is just much tougher to learnand adapt when you move up levels to faster and bigger boys. I know it can be done-and I hope this is the boy to do it. Everything i find seems to point to the fact that he is a prime recruit and we should be vry happy to have him join the boys of Troy.
    Good point about it being harder for a D-man. We expect to have seven returning defensemn next season, so there won't be much pressure on him to perform immediately. OTOH, ther might be if he is a high NHL draft choice (assuming that there is an NHL draft).

            I add that he did indeed lose power until last Thursday. He left town but didn't have his password to update his file while gone. (That sounds like what I often do.)
            I should add that if Reno is indeed a 2013 recruit and no one leaves earlier, we should now be done with recruiting for 2013 with the exception of a walk-on goalie. At least in number, Reno replaces Bailen, and Bourbonnais, DeVito, and Wood replace Burgdoerfer, O'Grady, and Lee. If Melanson is a 2013 recruit, we either have 17 forwards or someone else is leaving.

            In 2014, we lose three forwards and two defensemen. Manley, Melanson, and Tironese replace three of the five.

            On paper, the eight recruits appear to me to be overall a step up over those whom they replace.

              We are going to have to come up with a really inventive nickname for Reno to use here on the postings. His name should lend itself to soem interesting ideas from the usual crew of suspects here. We've been to Reno and much prefer it to the other gambling meccas like Vegas and heaven forbid-Atlantic City. BTW which is further west-Reno Nevada or San Diego California?

                    I get the joke, but IMHO my answer was even dumber than yours.

                    I can't believe that I am attempting to make stupid jokes about someone slightly more than a quarter of my age.

                      Been to Reno in september no more poker in many of the casinos. People at Harrahs could only think of one place it was played. Not a dump but not exactly las vegas

                        Until we start winning again (and we better start this soon) just thought I would post one of my totally odd thoughts. I guess some of those old Quaaludes from the 70's are still circulating somewhere in the Circle of Willis. But i do think we can come up with something fitting.

                                Been through Reno several times while skiing in Tahoe...couldn't be less interested in gambling, but the town definitely has a vibe --different from Vegas.
