    Personally, I think that is a little unrealistic or you are going to be in for a lot of disappointment. RIT will be a contender more often than not, but the league is leaps and bounds above where it was when RIT started playing in conference, and in a one and done scenario in the playoffs - anything can happen. Just ask Robert Morris about that. As for Frozen Four trips - that's going to be tough to repeat. RIT is not Minnesota or BC - at least not yet.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "expect".

    Perhaps you meant to say "This team can be really good if all facets can play well at the same time."

    As has been noted, even by Providence fans, Friday's issue was not goaltending. On Saturday, while it was great to see Short get his first careen shutout, the dramatic difference in the game was not due solely to goaltending either. The skaters played very differently on Saturday.

    I didn't know "expect" had multiple definitions.
    Can't we all just get along?
    Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

    Agreed. The league has a whopping total of ONE Frozen Four appearance, so occasional appearances by any one team in AHC is highly unlikely.

    I suspect he said that with tongue firmly pressed in cheek, though.

    Maybe instead of "dependable/good" it should be "difference-making/top-flight". Rotolo would definitely fit the dependable/good category (at least). But it is true that since Madolora left, they haven't had a difference-maker in net for an extended period since. One could argue that Ruby's 2014-15 season was pretty darn great, but it kind of went un-noticed since the team struggled to support him with goals in the first half.

    Agreed.
    I would just add that they be in position to earn a first round bye most years as well.

    So, a team effort you say!

    Perhaps not, but it can be used in different contexts and with different degrees.

    Big announcement coming up at 1pm on campus today. Even former Prez Destler is supposed to be there. Lots of speculation about the announcement, some say a new parking garage, others guesses involve the hacking of Destlers weather machine , but for me I am hoping for the school to move to all D1 sports.

    Nope. They did receive a nice gift though $$$, that will likely be used for academics and facilty improvements.

    RIT certainly was awesome in Providence. Good luck after the break.

    Due to prodigious snowfall, RIT's games against Mercyhurst have been delayed by one day. They'll be playing Saturday--Sunday, the latter at 4:05.

    I just was notified by the RIT sports information department that the games at Mercyhurst this weekend have been postponed. Dates for rescheduling them are TBD, but it is likely that they will be made up as two single midweek games.
