    FYI: the last game of the B.R.O.'s suspension has been lifted; therefore he'll begin playing this Friday.

          That's one way to increase your post count quickly-I might try it to reach 30,000 sooner RB you could be at over 300,000!!

              Now the shootout says it was 2-1 -- still no JL.

                These are the kind of recruiting battles that are great to see us win. Coups like D'Amigo were great, but will not be something that happens on a regular basis until we make the tournament on a regular basis. Beating out other "academic" schools consistently for not-quite-top tier guys like Neal is the first step in making that a possibility.

                    I'm intrigued that Canisius was in on Neal after previously having (prematurely, apparently) landed Brock Higgs. They've had a number of solid talents in recent years. Bucky Gleason's insanity aside, it seems like Dave Smith has the Griffs poised to be a solid AHA program in the near future.
                    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

                      I agree. However, did we ever hear who else was recruiting Higgs (after he de-committed from Canisius)? I still (especially after hearing reports from the scrimmage) am not nearly as high on him as other people here seem to be. While I think he can certainly be a good contributor on a checking line, I personally don't seeing him having much more offensive upside than, for example, Malchuk or Kurt Colling.

                        Chris Heisenberg rated him pretty highly last year.

                          Higgs had something like 18 pts. 17 playoff games this spring for a talented Kingston team...and led the Vees with 39 playoff pts. in 25 games en route to the league title the year before.

                          In his two years in the OPJHL he was good for better than 1 pt. per game:Games 97 50G 64A 114 pts.

                            Also, Higgs is a '92, a true freshman. The other freshman forwards are all older.

                              Hey I'm all about providing bulletin board material. Those playoff runs certainly do indicate that he is a crunch-time producer, which is something that you can never have a surplus of.

                                I'm not into making predictions, I just thought I'd refresh all of our memories. The kid doesn't have a grinder resume. He played in the World Jr. A Challenge as well. Time will tell as to his role at RPI.
