      Frankly, their conference record flatters them, considering how poorly everyone but Drackett played in Colorado during that sweep. They seem to be a mediocre possession team with poor overall special teams and a goalie who can occasionally steal them a game but seems to have come back to Earth from a scorching start.

      Their next 3 conference weekends are against teams who are struggling in conference play. They need a minimum of 12 points out of these upcoming weekends, or they're going to be in the fight for home ice in the 1st round, not for the bye, which is obviously not where we thought this team would be a month ago.

        12 points in 6 games? What, 8 points in the last 9 games isn't good enough for you?

        Fight for home ice? This team's fight right now is with themselves to just play better hockey. Forget what the others in the conference are doing. This ship needs to be righted, and fast.
        Can't we all just get along?
        Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

          You were saying...?

          Can we enact a moratorium on speaking at all about PWR or Rankings before February? I'm not a superstitious person, but...

                  You could say where is the goal-tending, but that also would not be fair to Drackett. He was covering up for a lot of the team shortcomings, and as Wayne expected is starting to come back down to earth. I'd like to spend more time discussing but life is too busy right now, so I will probably get dirty looks, but will try and keep this short...

                  I think Dan Willett has caused a little bit (no pun intended ) on the power play. I don't doubt his skills, but it been a bit of a struggle for him. He has 5 assists and most of them or as pretty as can be, but there also been a couple of really bad decisions back there and over the ice, he has slide to a +/- of -3 and is the only Defenseman currently in the negative. There are times when him and Braubacher just seem like they can't get on the same page and to many times Brubacher ends up with no good look at the net to get his big shot off. Willett can definitely fire his own impressive shot, I think he needs to use it more. If he can find the back of the net I think the whole power play gets that much more difficult to defend. All though part of it too is one big complaint I've had over the years with RIT, lack of guy who seems to get tips and rebound goals.

                  Although their numbers are not horrible at all, I think Hamacher and Dupuis need to go streaking. Again don't get me wrong they have played well at times and especially with Hamacher there no question on skill, but have also struggles too. Cavalierly/Cameron/Bruce has been a nice find. I think if they can get a little bit more of a punch from a Hamacher and Dupuis line, it will equal a one two punch that will run off a lot of wins.

                  The intensity, playing hard, or I guess the term this year is compete level has just not been consistent enough. The SOG and getting out played for long stretches if finally biting them and making them look like a team that has no business in the top 2 or 3 teams. The Sacred Heart to AIC part of the schedule was one I had circled to see if they were really a contender for a regular season title, 3 of 18 points, nuff said there. I think with their schedule in the second half they can fest on 11 out of 15 AHA games against teams at the bottom half of the league. Great chance to secure a 1st round bye and home ice, but right now you have to have some reasonable doubts when showtime comes....

                      First 30 minutes no way, last 30 hell yeah. Like to see that for 60 tonight.

                      Great change up on the power play, they are finally working the puck down to the opposite side of Bru, and it's opening up so me lanes.

                            Hardly anyone posts here anymore. Certainly not like the days when RIT went DI. Seems most of the posters are either lurking or don't pay attention anymore. Personally, I don't even check the boards as often - as evidenced by missing a week of pick'em.

                            As for the weekend, it was about as much win as a series in December can be. RIT was good, but not great. They can go into the break on a high note. I like having the exhibition before getting back into NCAA play.

                              I think by now everyone learned that Tom knows everything..... And Obviously has way more time than the rest of us.

                                And knows everybody too! 😀

                                IMHO, this thread goes the way of the team. If they are doing super good, then there’s more conversation. Not doing well and the conversation level drops.
