I would be very surprised if he was not at the Frozen four

Only a blindly hateful blowhard would think that the RPI AD was kissing Union's ***. I'm sure he wanted to be any place else at that moment.
Union won. The committee chair handed them the trophy on the ice immediately following the game. And he did not throw a punch at the winning coach. (Sorry, I just had to throw that in :)) It is time to allow their moment in the sun, move on and begin getting ready for next season.

Considering Colonel ********* is kissing Union's butt by delivering them the trophy, RPI is doomed to mediocrity with him AND Appert at the helm.
Geez... Every time I see a post like this I feel that my sheepskin is somehow reduced in value.

Well at least the degree isn't printed on the back of a McDonald's hamburger wrapper like some schools. :) (I am not referring to Union.)

Really? What does one thing have to do with the other? The value of a Rensselaer education has zero correlation to its floundering hockey program. Has an interviewer ever said to anyone, "Wow your resume looks great but I can't hire you because your college's hockey team sucks?" Face it: We have a dark period ahead unless some unsuspecting program decides to make Appert a more ridiculous offer than our school did. Appert has taken a team that was at least competitive to one that can't get out of the second round of the ECAC playoffs. Based upon his salary and record, he must rank up there against all Div 1 coaches in compensation per win.

I agree, unfortunately, it's not the only one... :(

Seems to be a growing consensus that the post in question is a strong candidate for the worst of all time on this (or any other) thread.

Little too much doom and gloom in here tonight fellas. If the mediocrity has gone on for too long now, and judging by many of your posts, it most certainly has, the administration should set a goal for next season, if it is not made, make a coaching change, business is business and schnapps is schnapps, no hard feelings. RPI has too strong of a history for the team to become a cellar dweller in the ECAC.

Today is 16 April 2014. There are 171 days until RPI's next game.


This is based upon 4 October 2014 for the start of next season.

respectfully suggest you totally missed the point. The lament was not about the hockey program at all. The lament was, how could a person receive a quality education from RPI yet be so petty, boorish, rude, add all sorts of adjectives. it's like when your drunken uncle embarrasses your whole family and you just want to hide your face and pretend you don't know him.

I don't know who's worse, him or his Union equivalent.

If they are equivalent -- neither. :D

Union's bright prospects for next season dimmed a bit as Shayne Gostisbehere has foregone his senior season to sign with the Flyers.

Evidently he will join the Adirondack Phantoms and play in their final two games of the season.

Can someone explain why Gostisbehere can play in the AHL right away and Ryan Haggerty couldn't? :confused:

Union doesn't have a Ghost of a chance of repeating next season! :D

I also wondered why Gostisbehere can play in the AHL and Haggerty (and Zalewski) can't. Perhaps it is because Gostisbehere is a draft choice.

Nice touch - Drivel with logic at least occasionally. Great win for the ECAC. Let's hope it helps RPI recruiting. Next year the D and goalies will have to lead.

His ELC will start next year. Haggs signed an ELC which the 1st year will be burned this year thus allowing him to reach RFA 1 year earlier.

Umm... sorry that's a big swing and a miss. And no, I'm not now concerned about the baseball team cheapening the value of my diploma.

I promised not to post but I can't help myself. Really..really. I'm not ragging on the previous coach but you don't think that was a dark period. Here's a few for you to ponder. NCAA berth, RPI players playing significant time in the NHL (Pirri and JDA), better recruits coming in, upgrades to HFH. Shirley actually interested in the program where she would put capital investment into it. I am an apologist for MGC but you guys are getting on my nerves. You and others need to realize that while things are not perfect, they are better. This whole thread has turned into a cluster fark (excuse me RB, I honor what you do).
