    This concern has nothing to do if Bryan is qualified/will do a good job. That's unrelated.

    It has everything to do with the leadership of RPI athletics. The men's coaching search was not ideal. This was just terrible. I have a lot of questions about how things are being run up at ECAV these days.

    RPI's press release says Jared is going to Anaheim's camp. Is that a mistake on their part?

    I caught it because I made the same mistake in a post to the RPI sports listserv and only realized it while proofreading to try to catch some of my usual many errors.

    That is a pretty talented group.
    You would think that having players like that we could maybe come up with a .500 record this year.
    Lets see what the new coach can do with these guys.
    Throw in Tironese, Polino and Hayhurst, and maybe we can even eek out a few games over.

    Brings up a good point; what sort of expectations should we have? I know I've mentioned that this team has nothing to lose and everything to prove, so they should just go for it and whatever happens happens. I'd be satisfied with a 500 start before league play begins, and although some of the games are tricky, I could see us pulling a 500 this season. Not expecting miracle work, mind you, but just some team cohesion and the individuals using their talents to create a stronger team effort.

    If this coming year, this team can be a .500 or better team in spite of the considerable turmoil and defections, then it would seem to indicate how much better our records should have been over the past 10 or more years. Lots of talented boys came through this program during that time. Even more just plain hard working boys made up these teams that had little to show for their efforts. As always, i am optimistic for the upcoming season. Hoping and dare i say it, perhaps even expecting a bit of an upside surprise?? But then again, i am still hoping for the return of the Holiday Tournament, the return of the Bee and the Swarm, and even a return to a packed HFH with noise so loud you cannot here yourself think!

    Add: return of the band on the east end of the HFH, the WRPI announcers on the catwalk, Puckman on the uniforms, and financial responsibility by the RPI administration (but not the return of all of the poles blocking views from allover).

    Ever since the hostile takeover, the student union won't get it back because of NCAA rules. I can't wait to read jericho's response to the catwalk.

    I miss the catwalk, although my fear of heights doesn't. Great place to watch and call a game from. The problem with where we are now is 1) it's too small, at least for me. Should have taken out another row of seats and it would have been perfect. 2) half the ice becomes invisible because of the scoreboard.

    Overall, we are closer to the "atmosphere" of the game (as opposed to the Earth's atmosphere ) and I do believe it leads to better on-air excitement.

    Jared Wilson will indeed be in Calgary’s Dev. Camp. Anaheim’s camp ends July 2 & Calgary’s begins July 4..... https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/flam...edule/c-888053

    Does that mean he is going to two of them or is Anaheim in error?

    Not unusual for some players to attend 2 camps. All I know is he’s on both Rosters.
