    He certainly has a shot at it. He has great offensive instincts, good hands and wheels.I hope he hits the weight room in the off season as he is a little undersized..

    I was surprised both that he kept his commitment and Coach Smith was interested in him since other SA recruits dropped by the wayside. Needless to say I was very happy with his contribution.

    As to being all-league next year, it's a bit of a crap shoot as we found out this year.

    I wonder where I posted this by mistake earlier.

    Ryan Healey, Eric's son, didn't make the USNTDP 17U team.



    I still hope that we go after him.


    Edit: I posted it in the regular season thread. It's now deleted.

    Babichuk all league. Smith coach of the year. Really!!! Are you kidding me. As if there isn't any anti RPI bias by the ECAC against "those Canadians" dating back to Ned you know who.

    Who has ever taken these post season awards seriously since 1983-1984. As you may recall, RPI was probably as good (save for Jon Casey) as the team that would win the national championship one year later.

    Who made all ECAC? Answer, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE!!! Not a 15 year NHL guy. Not even an eventual hall of famer. No one!!!

    These puss belly sausage stuffers that run the ECAC today are different puss belly sausage stuffers than the ones that ran the ECAC in it's earlier years. However, their puss belly sausage stuffer brains operate exactly the same.

    Agree totally - but will still be sending you a sedative soon. Perhaps a Valium salt lick? That 83-84 team was loaded!

    Apologies if this was mentioned already, but wanted to share the Marrello family's good deeds here in the Cap Dist. They along with some local corporate sponsors have been catering meals for health care workers at local hospitals. Very great efforts by some very nice folks whose businesses have been hammered by the shutdown.

    How do you figure it's who runs the league??? You do realize that all post-season rewards are voted on by the head coaches?
    I've been lost since 1989. I got a breakaway on a river and have been skating ever since!

    Thank you for the "useful" insight. However, between 1965 and today I acquired a fairly good working knowledge of who does what mechanically. But thank you anyway.

    The missed point was a league wide culture dating back decades starting at the very top and extending downward to however far down it goes. Even farther back to the earlier referenced no 83-84 all ECAC players. No Puppa, Hammond, Friday, George S., Carter, Dark, Jooris or Oates. Instead you have guys listed some won't even remember. Those coaches picked that team too. Get it now???

    Lets also not forget coaches getting suspensions for hitting a reply button on their laptop (without uttering a single word) and ducking hay makers successfully without getting their heads ripped off.

    Issue covering decades simply pointed out. Some may not have been around long enough to get it. For others how long does not matter. They just will never get it.

    After reading turk181's post on another thread about BC losing a Finnish player, I became concerned about what will happen if European players aren't in Troy next season. We could Leppanen, Lacka, Kjellberg, and recruit Sertti. That would really hurt.

    That bothered me at the time although Oates, Carter, and Dallman were 2nd team. We did OK in 84-85.

    Lastly how about Ralph and a few of the more knowledgeable posters have an in person RPI Hockey National Championship Task Force Daily Briefing? It would be so much better and far more informative than what we are stuck with these days 😂

    I am not that knowledgeable. I just post a lot.

    I suspect that you are correct about the transfer portal increasing in popularity.

    I used to post a lot and I used to be a little knowledgeable. Now I post a lot less and know a lot less.

    Both you and Ralph are far more knowledgeable (as are others on this blog) than I am. Most of the time I sit back and learn from you folks. When I do offer my thoughts, I find I am often off target more than on. I have been a season ticket holder for about 28 years, but am astounded by how much you guys know. I appreciate that a great deal.
