    On occasion, they may actually improve at RPI.

    Simon Kjellberg
    2018-19 Dubuque (USHL) 58-2-3-5-10
    2019-20 RPI (ECAC) 14-3-3-6-8

    and Zach Dubinsky is on track to do it too
    2018-19 Lincoln (USHL) 19-2-3-5-31
    2019-20 RPI (ECAC) 11-1-4-5-0

    This may mean that the USHL is now better than the ECAC.

    (I used Elite Prospects for the stats.)

      Happy Hanukkah to all of our Jewish friends. Enjoy the celebration.

        On occasion I have actually won a couple of spins at the Roulette wheel. But you are our resident mathematician and can definitely figure out how often that occurs!! I would suspect that players who improve at RPI are in a distinct minority. (but over the past many years i certainly agree with you that it can happen).

            Those are two pretty good examples and I expect even more from both of them! I think the upside potential on this current team is far better than what we had seen for many years.

              In Dubinsky's case he was injured a lot and also probably wasn't in the best shape when he played.

                Right before the Union series, I met with DS to discuss Red Army things with him. The freshmen defensemen came up in conversation and how they'll all be great 4 year players on our backend. I said specifically that Kjellberg looked amazing, and he agreed. I asked him what happened in Dubuque, something along the lines of "What happened in Dubuque? Did they just not play him? Because he is way too good to only have those kind of stats", and he said that that was pretty much what happened.

                Obviously, Dubinsky's case was injuries as you mention. These two examples are why it's important to not just look at the stats because there is always context that surrounds them. There is a reason coaches watch recruits play in person and scout and not just choose to recruit based on their boxscores.

                        All I wrote is that those are better than last season. I was not trying to imply that they are Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky.

                        An on that note, I will start a new thread.
