    Yep. It's that time again.

    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

      You have to find a picture with a Red Cloud using a facepalm, not a Baer.

      BTW, I earlier made the comment that we accept transfers only from teams called Falcons, and someone suggested that Michael Vick was next.

        I hope he is the one as well...size and speed at the blueline. Seth certainly will lay the red carpet (cloud?) out for him.

          I wonder if SA was indeed looking at Scott yesterday, if that means Curadi declined RPI's offer. I really cant see us recruiting 2 more defenseman for next year, although it would be real nice to see both these guys, especially Curadi and his enormous frame in Troy next year, but I gotta think the scholarship money is running a bit thin by now.

            That crossed my mind also. It seems, however, that SA isn't usually concerned about such events and will deal with them if they occur.

            BTW, Scott also plays RW.

              Doesn't mean squat from our perspective. As a coach, unless you get yourself to the point where recruits are coming to YOU instead of the other way around, you're recruiting more bodies than you can use, because they aren't all coming to Troy. If Curadi (or Scott, or whoever) turns you down, you still need someone to fill a role on the team. You don't just move on to the next guy, you've already been working on the next guy.

                That is what i like about SA-you don't see him wasting any time. As far as recruiting goes at least, he always seems to have a plan B ready.

                  Well said RC.

                    Cerrtainly possible, but I read in at least one place that scouts feel Curadi would benefit from two years in the BCHL before heading off to school. So he could be a '11 guy. He was a multi-sport kid who didn't commit solely to hockey until late in H.S.

                      Remember also that Curadi is a NHS kid so they could tailor a scholly package for him with academic moneys as well.

                        That's the bonus with the top students - and you would think top students would be attracted to RPI anyway. It's a win-win.
