    RPI Off-Season Thread 2010 -- The Calm Before the Storm






    Today is 7 March 2010. There are 216 days until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 9 October for the start of next season.




    That is a wild guess for the first game. It could be a week earlier.

    Ended this season too soon. Seven months to think about it. Now we have to bring in a bunch of new boys and get ready for next year. We were treated to a lot of good hockey this year-let's hope we learn and grow from this year. Go Red!

    I've seen enough of RPI this year to say that this is a program on the upswing, tonight not withstanding. Brown was flying and the crew in stripes left a lot to be desired.

    Agreed! Albany with two tough teams this year.

    Albany doesn't have any teams.

    Everyone go check out the Brown thread. It's a laugh a minute.

    NO! How could anyone draw THAT conclusion?

    By the way, this all just confirms for me that WRPI is still a high quality operation. Well done, Tim and Joe. Wish I could have heard what these clowns were complaining about.

    The Engineers far exceeded my expectations this season. I thought .500 in conference play would be a stretch. They played fantastic! I can't wait til October.

    Maybe you should go instead. Get off the *** bandwagon if your not gonna stick with the team in good and bad times. Seth is doing everything he can to put a great team on the ice and we sure as heck dont need the likes of you hanging around. This is just another step in the building process we took so many good strides this year and yes we took some steps back but things are looking better than they were at the end of the Fridgen era.
    Loyality means sticking with a thing in good and bad times. Not willing to do that, stay home, I got this.

    Disappointing end to the season in tonight's game vs. Brown, but an 18-17 overall this season is a very nice turnaround indeed from the 10-27 record of a year ago. This is first over-.500 season in six years. Appert clearly has the team pointed in the right direction. All in all a good show.

    It's good to keep things like this in perspective. But its a disappointing end, especially based on last year's playoff performance, where they were the underdogs in Lynah one goal away from Albany.

    If nothing else, this series should be a learning experience for the young guys on the team. Skill is only part of the puzzle, and next year we'll have the same skill and that much more experience.

    Sorry to see you guys bow out with what sounded like underachieving performances. Us SLU fans can certainly share the disappointment in having to deal with Brown, we've had our fair share of bad memories playing them in the past decade+

    I will echo the statements made here and in the score update thread that while this may be a disappointment, RPI does have a lot to look forward to. GLM/RC: how realistic is it that D'Amigo and/or Pirri will make the jump this year?

    Hope to see RPI make a run for the top next year, I'm tired of seeing Cornell up there all the time, another Red team needs to replace them.

    If either one of them jumps this year, they should never have been admitted to RPI because they'd be exposing vast stupidity.

    They both seem pretty smart.

    Sorry.

    Pointing out rank foolishness isn't my "turf," I'm just sometimes the only one doing it. It's always good to have others pitching in.

    Agreed. This was a very winnable series this weekend. I am happy with the overall improvement shown this season but clearly there's still a lot of work to do. Appert himself has been quoted in the paper as saying this team has underperformed. I can't say for sure, not being in the locker room, but in my opinion they need to develop a killer instinct to put teams away. They let teams linger, like we saw this weekend and in a number of other games where they gave up goals late in 3rd period.

    I think if you take the talent this team has, develop the killer instinct, and learn to play the full :60 this team will go far next season and there will be much to look forward to.
