    I'm sorry, Eeyore, you aren't convincing me.
    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

      there seems to be a bit of contempt in that statement Your right BB, our Full Bird AD is most likely a help in this area.

        Good Doctor, I am telling you he is on the radar. Scoff all you want but I am confident in my source on this one. Sometimes, I swear Ralph confuses me w Hokydad. This is more than he just plays for Monty, I'll leave it at that.

          Were OK.....Recruiting some times comes down to what is available and what you need.A good example is the Spynx boys they are both fine players but do we really need any more 5'7 - 5'8 forwards I don't think so.We went 3 yrs.just grabbing the best talent we could now we can fill holes.Although the JDA/BP affair put a wrench in the plan I have to believe the staff only planned on them being there for 2yrs so we only have to Yaba Daba Doo our way thru his year.I can assure you with confidence that SA and the Brain Trust are a couple years out w/recruiting.You get to a point where you have to let the players you have mature and develop,it can't always be the next BIG THING. this hurts recruiting also kids and advisors get the opinion that there just the flavor of the day until someone better comes along.We are slowly getting to the point where we are not recruiuting we are RELOADING and that is a good thing.(JMO)

              Plus we have Luke and JL for next year's crop. That's a helluva of a start.

                I got this quote regarding Izyk from collegehockey247 back at the end of March. I cant link the story because I didnt renew my subscription.

                    I don't think it's that we don't trust you, we just would like to be able to research it for ourselves and verify that this is the case.

I have no doubt he notes who might be a comer and give the word to SA. He has said he doesn't want to insert himself in the coach's business and I'm sure he doesn't; but I'm also sure an intriguing recruit or two can come from those venues...
                      That is good to hear Babo, you know better than most the number of players coaches look at and follow before ever making an offer. If I were Seth, I wouldn't mind hearing from the Colonel about a kid or two.....even if he was my boss. The guy obviously knows hockey.

                          I have no reason to doubt you Aspy, and will look forward to your updates in this regard. I also have no doubt that our midwest Sales Rep. B.R.O. will do his level best with VS ! Everyone else should keep an eye out for a curly haired 6'0 190lb. kid visiting HFH....

                          I would say that if nothing else, if VS were to really light things up in Dubuque this season, college offers aside, he might get an offer from Atlanta. But I say this having no idea about their personnel or cap position.

                            Agreed, also IIRC Seth coached him at USA hockey/goalie camp. That said, if he hasn't already, it sounds like he will visit DU and Miami.

                              Just to be accurate, the Spink kids (Tyler (C) & Tyson (RW), only turned 17 halfway thru last season. They have a lot of physical growth to come...and could be 2 years away from playing in Troy (with a jump to BCHL or USHL.) The QMJHL site lists them in the 5'10 180 range. While no doubt exaggerated, we'll be able to compare their size to JL this season. They both attended MJ camp but returned to Cornwall.

                              Whether RPI has interest or not, they are legit ECAC prospects. The brothers put up nearly 120 pts. in their first trip thru the league...vs. kids 3 and 4 yrs. older than them.

                              The one recruiting wrinkle is they will most certainly want to play together, as they have described the results of past coaching attempts to split them up as "not good".

                                I knew that we were mentioned with Izyk and several others (e.g., Beyers). I don't recall, however, Saponari being mentioned. That doesn't mean that we aren't interested, and I hope that we are interested.
