  • Re: RPI Hockey 2019 - 2020: Nordic Combined

    I've been pretty busy over the last several weeks and have not had the chance to see the team play in person. I look forward to seeing a few games at HFH after Christmas.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah everyone!

              I really hope you are right, and I will be rooting for an even better outcome, but I have my doubts.
              Unless something changes, I don't see any reason for optimism. Their wins are against equal or lesser talent. To achieve the results others have suggested may be possible, they have to be able to take a couple games against top tier teams. And that will mean putting an entire 60 minute game together,offensively and defensively,or stealing one with a stellar goaltender performance. I just don't see it as I don't get a sense this team is starting to put it together, that they are building on a solid foundation. They simply have to play for 3600 seconds like they did for the last 40 seconds against Brown.

                Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

                  I had wondered also, but didn't bother trying to figure out why. Thanks. It's too bad that Zach doesn't have his brother's size, although we probably wouldn't have gotten him then.


                  Edit: OTOH, Josh didn't play past the midget level.

                    I checked this year's freshmen on Neutral Zone for which symbols appeared with each. Only two (one being the injured Helsen) have the symbols. They are the following.

                    Helsen: St, Aw, Vi, To
                    Klee: Aw, To

                    Meanings: Aw=Awareness/IQ, Ch= Character/Leadership, GS=Goal Scoring Ability, Sk=Skating, Sp=Speed, SH=Stick Handling Skill, St-Strength, To=Toughness, Vi=Vision/Passing

                    I don't think that anything should be taken from who is mentioned since some 4.5 and higher players have no symbols. The symbols are public.

                    For comparisons, our recruits:
                    Brown St Sk To GS
                    Davies St Aw Vi
                    Itagaki Sp SH Aw Sk
                    Leibold Sp SH
                    McIsaac Sp To
                    Sertti SH Aw Vi Sk

                      Once again, we come up short on GS.
                      We will not be a top team without goal scorers, no matter who the coach is.

                        True, but there are relatively few who get that symbol. We are missing completely on character/leadership. I think we had more leadership players under SA. I won't mention names to not irritate turk181, but we did lose two with the leadership symbol, one who also had the goal scoring symbol.

                                Ahh... the boy scout badge method of rating players! Give me the kids with Aw, Vi and Sk and the GS will come. Ch sounds like a consolation prize - I'll bet most kids tend to fall on the have it side vs. don't have it. Honestly if there was the opposite rating for someone with poor Ch then that would be a more meaningful screen.
