    Of course it was significantly sub-par. Want a cookie?

      Look who's talking. You're the only one demanding something of someone.
      Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

        Fire everyone.

        Fire the coach.

        Fire his assistants.

        Fire the AD.

        Fire the assistant AD.

        Explain to me what exactly it is the director of hockey operations does, and then fire him.

        Fire anyone who helps with recruiting and replace them with FlagDUDE08. He will use a USHR subscription and the internet, and he will do a better job.

        Fire the equipment manager.

        Fire the trainers.

        Fire the PA announcer.

        Fire the guy who designed the jerseys.

        Fire the entire marketing department.

        Revoke the scholarship from every single player on the team. I don't care what happens in return.

        Fire the guy at Houston Field House who makes the hot dogs. Every time I eat one, I taste three decades of failure. Way to go, *******s: you've somehow managed to ruin hot dogs.

        Travel back in time and fire Liver Houston, who thought it was a good idea to bring hockey back to RPI.

        **** every fan of any other team that claims to "hate" the Engineers. You haven't earned the right to say that.

        Make it so I don't feel like calling social services whenever I see a kid wearing an RPI jersey.

        Stop celebrating the 1964 team. Breaking news: they lost. Looking forward to the 2061 pregame ceremony where we applaud the 2011 team and pretend we don't know how it ended.

        But hey, speaking of 2061, it's entirely possible that we'll have won a national championship by then. Here is a brief list of things that are more possible:

        Complete nuclear annihilation

        Massive earthquake destroys Troy

        Massive earthquake destroys the Frozen Four city with the Engineers leading by 3 with 30 seconds left in the national championship game

        Siena starts a varsity team, wins the national championship in first year of existence

        Siena basketball team makes the Frozen Four

        I wouldn't wish the Engineers on my worst enemy. If Adolf Hitler was contemplating becoming a hockey fan, and was enamored by the disciplinary stylings of Seth Appert, I'd beg him to reconsider. Hitler, you have a reputation to uphold.

        God **** it.

        **** this team.
        Eat the rich!!!

Many of us have a tattoo waiting in the wings, WHEN (not IF) the Gophers are champions again.

            It'll be interesting to see who gets named Captain, and what effect that will have. Next season seems so far away...

                  Congrats to Haggerty. Unfortunately, RPI is going to be even worse next year.

                    Not necessarily; everyone starts somewhere.

                      I definitely support Luke for C. As far as assistants go, I definitely think we see Leonard. I don't know what forwards might get letters.

                        Now I'm curious as to how this will impact our scoring next season with him and Higgs gone...
                        I would like a show of hands of everyone that predicted Haggerty wpould score close to 30 goals this year.
                        What was the Guy who discovered milk doing to the cow ????????...Or for that matter how bout the fist Guy to drink it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          I had self-predicted around 20, so he exceeded my expectations. My point with what I said is that because he continues to improve with time, I wonder how it will impact our scoring. My point still stands...

                          I agree with Red Cloud, opportunities for others, but I wonder if we can either get another scoring stud like this to arise, or we can get more depth and get everyone to chip in a little bit. That remains to be seen. Personally, I'd rather have the latter if we can't have both.
                          Hockey is serious business. Everything else is just a game.

                          RPI Hockey, Syracuse Football, New York Rangers, New York Giants.

                            ...in my preseason guesstimate I had him for 22. I was really off with Z, had him for 15.

                                I appreciate the buckets of radiating optimism from this thread! Why don't we wait and give it a few games next season before we make hasty conclusions about it 7 months before it even starts?
