    I think that we have to keep in mind that when next season starts, Shirley and Lee will not be here.
    So Dave will have to impress his new bosses at that time.
    I hope he stays, but you know what happens when a new boss takes over. He likes to have his own people on his staff.

    Maybe Dave wants to find something else. Can you blame him. It’s a nightmare dealing with RPI

    Not sure who they have in mind. I certainly hope they keep Dave smith. He’s a very good coach.

    Sadly I think your right doc. Who knows what else is going on behind the scenes. The new president will have his hands full cleaning up.

    If Dave Smith doesn’t get a new contract (and is it certain he wants to stay here- has he stated that?), who does RPI have in mind to replace him? Perhaps the Administration will not renew his contract and they will go out and find someone to coach the team who has played college or even pro hockey, but has never coached above the youth hockey level like the Canadiens just did.

It’s over the top heavy handed way to handle these student athletes.
    Although I cannot prove this to be the case, I cannot help but feel that this entire season has been not only affected by the heavy handedness of the administration about Covid rules and regulation but perhaps affected far beyond what any of us can imagine.

    "As for Shirley, how many of you had the responsibility of running an organization of this size?
    If she gave special attention to the athletes, how would that look to the rest of the student body. All of these kids want to attend classes in person and be part of the college experience.
    She is in charge of all the students not just the hockey team.
    I hate this whole situation, but I will not blame her for trying to keep these students healthy. JMO." EHF
    Sorry ...

    Sorry here the mask mandate is lifted and the same time as that the Wisconsin Notre Dame series is postponed this weekend because the team could only put 13 players on the ice for practice due to Covid issues on the Badger team. I would not get all excited the pandemic is now over just yet. We thought that last summer and an awful lot of people have died since then. I am not saying the same thing will happen now, but as I always said as a nurse caring for ICU patients “Fools rush in”.
    Those games were moved from Thurs/Fri to Sat/Sun... due to asymptomatic positive tests... NOT illness. This bug will always be with us and lockdowns don't work....just ask the good folks at Johns Hopkins who have the data to back it up. Once again, I'll be across town at Union tomorrow night watch live hockey vs. Colgate. Amazing how reckless these two universities are compared to Shirley......HA HA
