    I totally agree. I saw him a few years back vs. Alb. Academy and thought then that he reminded me of Eric Healey -- the way he threw his body around and shrugged off defenders. Can't wait to see him this fall and see how he has developed.

    I was browsing the net to see if I could find anything about the Green Bay Gamblers' camp which is currently going on. I didn't find anything but found this interview



    with the head coach and GM Derek Lalonde after the draft. He discusses Evan Tironese starting at about 0:50 and then a bit at about 4:00. (BTW, the interview with the AC Pat Mikesch doesn't mention ET.)

    I agree. I do have a bit of concern that he commented that the first time he took the SAT exam he did not do well. (Of course, since he plans to major in engineering, it won't make a difference if it just was the verbal portion. )

    Question and answer session with Riley Bourbonnais http://wnyhockeyprospects.com/?p=1500.


    The last question and answer:
    10. You have committed to play your 2013-2014 season with the RPI Engineers, a Division 1 Hockey program and current member of ECAC Hockey. For years, many people outside of the Northeast United States did not know of the high level of play in the ECAC. This ignorance lead to the Conference being labeled “soft” and frequently referred to as the “EZ-AC.” The 2013 NCAA D1 Hockey season completely changed this as two ECAC teams played for the National Title. Underdog Yale beat a highly favored Quinnipiac team that was ranked #1 in the country for most of the season. Do you think that the 2013 National Championship Game will draw some much needed attention to the talent level of the ECAC?


    I sure hope so. All the teams in that league are so close to one another in talent and abilities. I would love the chance to get more big time exposure like some of the more famous hockey schools. It was great seeing the first and third place teams from ECAC in the finals. In the future lets hope for the team that finished in second place (RPI) with Chris Bradley (Amherst) gets their crack at the Frozen four.

    I am sure that was what he was referring to.

    but it is wrong

    Can't comment on that since I don't know what it is.

    Sounds about right in this case, although the need to post them on a message board and then comment on them is far more solid evidence.
