    Re: MSU Spartan off-season - the grand flame-out

    You know, If I push my graduation into the next fall's semester (an unlikely possibility, but still a possibility nonetheless), I'd be more than happy to mentor someone.

      Re: MSU Spartan off-season - the grand flame-out

      My freshman year I had an ISS class in the fall with Petry and Tropp. The prof was a really cool dude and liked talking to the athletes in the class so there were a couple days where we got to hear from both of them. He even had the athletes from each team give a short powerpoint presentation detailing what it's like to be a D1 athlete here and what their daily schedule might look like and i remember coming away appreciating how hard the hockey team really does work. But what is relevant here is that when Petry's NHL future came up he was asked if he would leave school early to play in the NHL and his answer seemed to be a very certain "yes." I always remembered that but didn't want any further unneeded speculation into what he was going to do but now that he is apparently gone, I guess it doesn't matter. But good luck to him and he was an absolute pleasure to watch.

      Also, Tropp seemed like a pretty funny guy. Probably one of the reasons why his teammates apparently like him so much.

        I was worried when I saw the past tense there, but then I was heartened when you used present tense again.

          Follow the fine example set by Johnny Spirit. Take that token course.

              I'd give Gazley an A. Just my .02.

                ha, well it was in past tense because it was like 2 years ago. But i don't think many people lose their funny ability.

                  Possibly. I for one am relieved, not because I was particularly scared of him or anything (no sparty on your team scared me last year, even Tropp) but rather because he is the son of former Tiger Dan Petry. For some odd reason I find it difficult to root against him.

                      Yes, I understand your passion for Spartan Hockey goes unabated so I'll just say you can continue to be unafraid of Tropp for one more year.
                      Rowe too.

                      BTW - could someone continue this under a new topic reflective of the current state of the program? The current title is ... can't even say it.

                        Am I crazy for thinking Krug could carry an A. That kid is a dynamo and looks like he could be a fiery leader. Too young?

                          Eh, i know everybody's morale is pretty low but barring unexpected defections this summer, I think we are in great shape. Just remember what this team looked like at this time last year. The guys will work hard over the summer and I don't think the team will let next year's freshman have it easier than this year's. We will be exciting next season.

                            I don't think you're crazy.

                              I could see him and Grant with "A"s in 2011-2012.

                                The script hockey logo appears to be gone for next season.
