    [QUOTE=ServinisScores;5958244]You start out by claiming my last statement is ignorant, then you agree with me...?

    I don't care about the general NHL - I'm talking about why are the high-end recruits Seth gets lauded for landing are leaving so soon? Is D'Amigo well-positioned for an NHL FA contract? Haggerty? Zalewski?[

    Whether you care about the NHL is irrelevant. The FACT is that talented college kids now have opportunities to leave school and bank large checks. This is fact. If you expect kids, with help from their "Advisors " (be they from RPI or elsewhere ) to not be tempted by this reality , then I can't help you. Zalewski reportedly had more than one offer , ditto Haggerty. The Rangers burned an NHL deal on Hags with a handful of games remaining in their season because they didn't want to risk a bidding war.

    Up until the day he landed on campus, there were reports that JDA would report to Kitchener and skip college. ..as the "quicker " route to the pros. But now your revisionist history insinuates that Seth drove him away.

    If you have an issue with Appert recruiting kids who attract NHL teams, then have the stones to say it. Don't give us some mealy mouthed grassy knoll insinuation that Haggerty et al left to get away from Seth.

    He's a transplant from #26. He thinks .400 is good.

    No one can argue that we win the National Championship of Drivel.

    I would bet that given RPI's poor record over the last 10 years, and within the ECAC, the numbers are unusually high at RPI - i/t/o players leaving/per win and players leaving/year within the ECAC. It's not like they're leaving after achieving something....
    Also notice that it's almost always a forward. Goaltenders leave early after achieving something, because as a goaltender coach, there's trust there. Even though someone like Allen York only got a couple games in the big one, that's much better than most goaltenders out there.

    Diesel, although not quite as good as Pirri at the time but has the chance to be, will have a great pro career. Even if he wasn't the most prolific scorer for us, all of the little things he was doing to create those opportunities is what has made him successful, and why there was belief from here that he was the best player on our team.

    I realize that was what you were referencing in particular, but there isn't a significant difference. Going from HS before one graduates to junior hockey isn't really any different. At least that is my opinion.
