M P has some offensive skills but he is a liability on Defense. He is slow misses assignments and was way over minus twenty on a plus minus scale with the plus being good and the minus not good. Wilson devito and wood also had over minus twenty. I know the whole team was bad but these players are veterans . Was this the weakest senior class in a while?

I totally agree with your statement on the forwards. I have never seen a team miss the net as often as these guys. None of them seem to think that you can score off a rebound, so they try the perfect shot and miss the net.
As for Praps, you missed the boat. Watch the other four engineers when Praps gets the puck in the offensive zone. They stand around and watch him. If they would move and give him someone to pass to, he would love that. And we would have a lot more scoring opportunities.

And if he would actually pass the darn puck, maybe I wouldn't have to make the statement that was made.

Certainly possible, but from past history SA does not seem to care about L vs. R. Of Tuliara, Babichuk, and Cho, I would be surprised if Cho doesn't come since he already deferred once and is having a good year in Georgetown. I also would like to see Tuliara spend a year in the states before arriving, but that does not mean he won't come.

Big difference between dexterity and playing the position, mind you.

it's always about skating, speed and skill......or lack of!

LGR - Optimistic next year we won't lead ECAC in penalties and we will win face offs. The 3 senior forwards had 25% of the penalty minutes. Looking for home ice next year.

... ;) At this point I hope for more than a home playoff series. I definitely hope for a trip to LP in March.

Ralph, I'm with you. :)

Let me repeat myself. If he had someone to pass to, he would. The games are available, watch his teammates stand around instead of going to open areas. It is a joke. It is also the system. Just sayin'

no offense Ralph, but I hate these are going on so early in the year.

Me too, but it has been that early in many recent years.

Any hopes? That's a large chunk of alimony, too.

It's true:

And I'm feeling more optimistic already.

Wow. Can't believe that SAJ bought out all those years remaining on his contract. I guess it is true about nice guys finishing last (or at least next to last).
The most interesting question now will be about the recruits. Will they still be coming to RPI next season (or beyond)?

Well, we lost one the last time.

No but considering he gets paid for 3 more years (or is it four?) I don't think you need to feel too bad.

Now... let the speculation begin... Alum? D1 assistant? D3 head that looks promising? I for one would like to see someone with ties to the Northeast. It's absurd that Troy is 30 minutes from Mass and yet we can't seem to get any recruits from New England. We should average 1 recruit a season from one of CT, RI or MA in my opinion.
