Ralph, thanks for the new title. Ed's a good man and I was very saddened to hear of his death today. Thoughts and prayers for Ed and his loved ones.

I was informed by someone at the Record that Ed had a cardiac event that took his life. Ed Weaver was a man of deep conviction and faith. Ed was a patriot. Many of you might not know but back in the day he wrote a column about current affairs with a conservative bent. I got to know Ed well the last yr of his life in which we would talked about hockey and politics. I will miss him greatly. Eternal rest grant unto your servant Edward, O Lord. And let the perpetual light shine upon him. And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Seth Appert's tribute to Ed on Twitter.
"So sad to hear of Ed Weaver passing. He was a fixture at the HFH covering RPI Hockey. Great friend of our program/college hockey"

Very sad news indeed. :(

I wonder if HFH would be willing to do a moment of silence during the Princeton game...

That would be a good idea.

That would be a good idea.

Freakout! would be a much bigger audience to do it at.

Freakout! would be a much bigger audience to do it at.

But isn't that is also Senior Night? I don't think that too many things should happen at one game.

I would also like to send my condolences to Ed's family and to the RPI hockey family that he was so much a part of.

One game this weekend, on the road at Dartmouth.

Friday is a must win if we want any shot at being home in the first round. Dartmouth is in 8th on 12, with us in 11th on 8 and a game out of hand (with those being made up on Saturday so we'll be even at that point). Add two more games to the schedule against teams that are also hotly contesting that home slot (9th and 10th presently), so we can definitely make a name for ourselves. We'd need a solid from other teams and probably pull an upset on one or two of the other games (I don't think 3-2 will get it), but it's not outside of the realm of possibility.

Winter wonderland this morning...

There's some white stuff from the sky out here, too. Hopefully things aren't too bad, considering how New England was supposedly going to be hit (no idea if they were or not, I got rid of StalkerBook again)...
