Like the title......

Could be a good nickname for the new arena.

BTW, Check the AHA Composite schedule. Wilfrid Laurier playing both RIT and Mercyhurst on 10/6?

USCHO has a composite schedule? Or are you talking about the one I (and burgie12) maintain in the other thread?

Yes, too soon but funny comment none the less!

Gotta feel sorry for those who lost their homes to the fires, hopefully insurance covers those things that can be replaced.

Burt continues his career:

"ONTARIO, Calif. - The Ontario Reign, 2011-12 Pacific Division Champions, and proud affiliate of the NHL's 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, announce today that they have extended eight qualifying offers to six players from last season's roster and two that spent time with the AHL's Manchester Monarchs.

Those eight players are forwards Geoff Irwin, Chris Cloud, Rob Mignardi, and Kevin Estrada, and defensemen Adrian Van de Mosselaer, Jordan Hill, Chris Huxley and Cameron Burt."

EDIT: Although I'm not sure what this means along with Burt's tweet: "Just want to get this stuff figured out. Just need a chance and I'll do the rest #putmeincoach #imreadytoskate"

Steve Pinizzotto resigned with Vancouver for another year. He had a pretty good shot of making the team out of camp last year before going down with a shoulder injury in the preseason. Fingers crossed he does as well this year, and finally gets in an NHL game!

That Vancouver resigned him shows that they see something they like.

The list:
Trevor Eckenswiller, Defense, RIT
Chris Haltigin, Defense, RIT
Ryan Leets, Goalie, Army
Cheyne Rocha, Defense, Army

I wonder who are the "better" academic teams across the NCAA... not like that's really a useful stat, but interesting to see where we line up.

I'd go out on a limb and say Harvard, Yale, Brown, Princeton, Dartmouth, Air Force, and Army, based on the belief that their recruits are "students first", in the truest sense of the phrase.

Nice, but just to keep people from trying to by Mads Shark jerseys, its typical for NHL teams to take recent NCAA goaltender grads for a couple of weeks and then cut ties after the wear them out for target pratice. Same thing happen to my old favorite Sieve from Oswego in 2008 with the Buffalo Sabres. But was very cool seeing him on the ice at (then) HSBC Arena with NHL players....

Just a guess, but he probably referring to the fun of agents and contracts and all the other legal stuff you will not believe you have to go through just to play a sport and get paid. Dan Ringwald father commented he was amazed at how much they had to learn quickly when Dan went pro. About everyone I ever talked to have all said "I wish I new at the start what I know now" when they started a pro career in hockey... Like the attitude and belief in himself if he gets a chance he will do fine...

There was an article on USCHO a few weeks back listing D1 college teams academically. Tigers hit 991 out of 1000 tying AFA.

Update the filters for Ice Hockey and 2010/2011 and then sort by score.

Interesting. I never really paid attention to the APR before, but it is really a pretty low bar. Points are lost for students leaving school or becoming academically ineligible. 50% remaining eligible gives you an APR of 925 (if I read that right), so it really reflects academic performance at the low end of the scale rather than the high. Regardless, having a high APR is good.

I would also challenge the whole notion that measuring academic performance with GPA is truly meaningful. Everyone would note the potential differences in program difficulty (e.g. having a 3.8 in biomedical sciences is darned impressive for anyone), but there is also a huge variation from school to school. I don't want to start a flame war here, but I've been told more than once (and witnessed) that it is "easier" to get a high GPA at some of the big-name, high-reputation schools than it is at others. These all-academic honors really should be based on something more than GPA ... but I recognize that would make the task of selecting the students much more difficult and apparently arbitrary (paradoxically).

Anyway ... congrats to all the student-atheletes who are doing well, staying in school, and graduating (or leaving school for a well-paying job in the NHL!).
