What a depressing road trip for the Wolverines. Go to a B1G Ten school for hockey, spend an October weekend in Troy and Schenectady.

Better than the Spartans: Go to a B1G school for hockey, spend an entire weekend in Potsdam.

OK, I'm getting a little confused here... aren't I supposed to be the pessimist? ;)

Sparty won't mind. They'll still be hung over after yesterday's football game.

Michigan had to get our weekend over with before looking forward to the road trip. We should be ready now.

I realized that of course, but I traditionally start these threads the minute that RPI's previous weekend is over.

Didn't even see this thread until a moment ago.

Can someone explain why this is such a bad trip to take? Is it not hockey that is played at Union and RPI? Did I dream Union winning the NC a few years ago? Some of the guys I played for the corporate league played at RPI.

Based on the games we played this past weekend, we are a much improved team in a lot of aspects vs last year. Not to say that it's a great team, but there is a lot of speed. And a lot of optimistic aggressive play- which leads to odd man rushes- which is the current top weakness. Over the questionable goaltending. If not for the odd man rushes, we may not even realize that we are not sure why our goalies are not, well, playing like some of our older goalies.

Oh, now you tell me. Here I was all excited to be visiting my first ECAC arenas. I'm also excited because after this weekend I will be half way to my goal of seeing a game in every D1 hockey arena.

So, what kind of fun things can my group do in these lovely locations? Any good places to grab a bite to eat before the game?

I would say congratulations on your upcoming trip to HFH, but you'll probably die at Messa the night beforehand, which will be very sad for you.

Browns is a brew pub on River St, your basic pub fare and their beer isn't bad, I'm sure they have the Pumpkin Ale on tap this weekend. There's bombers and Dinosaur BBQ in that general area as well , just a drive up the hill to the Field House. Get down there early, as they full up quickly.

Have fun on Friday night fighting for one of the 2 urinals at Achilles or Messa or whatever it's called.

Will the Michigan band be making the trip?

Knowing wT, that's something, well... it would be an interesting fight.

I'm sure the band is taking the weekend off- they were busy last weekend.

You'll have fun at a great old hockey rink with a packed house and a unique feel. Then you'll go to an airplane hanger where you'll be able to hear a pin drop and if you're lucky, you won't be sitting behind a pole or in a corner of the stands that extends beyond the end of the rink, but if you have an overactive bladder, you'll find sanctuary at the soulless HFH.

Seriously, I've never heard of anyone on a road trip to the capital district that preferred watching hockey at HFH to Messa Rink.

You could have just ended that statement after "Better than the spartans."
