    I'm pretty sure that will be up to whomever is hired as the head coach, although I would not be surprised to see it happen.

    We have however recruited many players from within 5 hours westward from Troy.

    Re: RPI 2017 Off-Season: We March 4th into the Future

    From the stuff I saw on TV tonight from Dr. McElroy, it sounds like Coach Appert had no chance of keeping his job regardless of finish this year. Sad to see him go, but he will land on his feet somewhere when he is ready. I am a UAlbany alum and saw first hand what Dr. McElroy can do in the AD role and yes, RPI isnt a D1 school and he even admitted he has had to learn hockey, he will be able to make some moves to help RPI Hockey get back to where it belongs. Let the speculations begin!!!

    Also can someone check on AspyDad for me. He can't be taking todays events very well.

    Have been everywhere from DC to Maine, RI to Buffalo and Ottawa to Philly and have never met, or even heard of, one player in the past 8-10 years who aspired to play at RPI. Therefore, Ben Barr would be an excellent choice, simply because he knows the players and the program!!! Ran into SA more at the airport in Detroit, than i ever did at any rinks in New England and throughout the northeast.

    Two years ago SA had to refund a large portion of his High School Exposure Camp tuition because only 13 kids showed up! How embarrassing for the program that players from the region and surrounding areas weren't interested enough in RPI to attend his camp and have a chance to interact with SA and his coaches!!!

Both programs deserve a lot more ink than they've gotten in recent years.
    We gotta hire a coach like Siena's Jimmy Patsos. He can name drop like no other. Cal Ripkin Jr. is at the MAAC title game tonight according to a TU reporters tweet.

    Haven't posted in years - so what's going on this this thread?

    OH LAWD!

    1) Ralph Baer is still here (GOOD!)
    2) Seth Appert is not

    Look on the bright side, so far, firing the coach has worked for the Bruins

    Today is 7 March 2017. There are 208 days until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 1 October 2017 for the start of next season.

    Given what happened this past year, we can't really go much lower.

    Welcome back, no matter how long the stay.
