Either is fine-I just believe we are ready to start a new thread this quickly. It shows how much interest there is in RPI hockey-and how ready we are for a winning team!

Considering how many threads MTU goes through in a typical year and their performance, it appears that you are correct. Either that or students from technical schools post a lot. :D

May I suggest "Seth Appert believes in 32 seconds?"

IMO. I for one would trade him in a heart beat for Allain:) The yale game will tell us a lot about this team.

Army's d was less than lock down and very young, they made numerous near fatal errors, team energy ,conditioning and speed was excellent(a factor), they were physical, (another factor) , they were not afraid to go to the net, had a decent pk, and their goaltender was both hot and lucky..and most importantly red played down big time.

Very poor effort out of RPI tonight. Played very slow and reluctant to do much of anything the last 30 minutes of the game and Army, rightfully, took advantage of that and outworked virtually everyone in red and white on the ice. The second goal I almost wholeheartedly fault Erik Burdoerfer for because he both let the attacking forward get behind him but also did nothing to get him away from the crease and prevent him from putting home a loose puck. Just very disheartening effort from RPI all around.

Frustrating. Conditioning looked kind of bad as the game wore on. It seemed like Army won every single race to the puck and RPI couldn't establish the zone for more than a few seconds, even on the power play. Anyway, that won't do in the ECAC. The Union game was a real gem. It was great to see Messa packed and that nice big swath of red up in the corner.

Cornell blogger Big Red Puckhead ranked RPI's Freshman class as second to Harvard in the ECAC. http://bigredpuckhead.blogspot.com/2009/10/2009-ecac-hockey-recruiting-final.html

Watched last night's game this morning (a THANK YOU to RPI TV for immediately putting these games up on the website), and we just plain couldn't put the puck in the net. There isn't too much you can do when that happens. I did see a couple points on the penalty kill where an in-front player was wide open. That killed us in UMASS, and almost killed us here. That's something to work on, because most teams will make us pay if we do that.

Sure, a lot of people are complaining about the refs, and I didn't really see the blatant vs. ticky-tack stuff, but when push comes to shove, we had our chances, and it didn't work out. Plain and simple. Nothing else to complain about. So what if refs called stuff? They do that every night. We outshot 40-16. There's only one thing you can be disappointed about, and that is that the puck didn't go in.

Keep up the aggressive play, and we'll do well in the ECAC's. I'll be at next week's games, looking forward to them.

I have a QUESTION for the good folks of RPI Hockey...what are your thoughts of asst. coach Jim Montgomery? Do you think he has what it take's to be a Head Coach in College Hockey? The late Shawn Walsh always said that Montgomery would be the type to be a Head Coach when he got done with his Pro Career.....well just interested in finding out. I know he'd look good behind the UMaine bench....!! Thanks.

He is certainly an excellent recruiter. Several of our recruits have mentioned him. I can't comment upon his coaching ability.

Frustrating when you run into a hot goalie. the engineers let that get to them and they finished weakly. got to overcome that

A good team can control play a better team finishes the play.

scored a powerplay goal thats good.
Rather loose to Army than Union

The Union game was a real gem. It was great to see Messa packed and that nice big swath of red up in the corner.I didn't quite see it that way...Conditioning was not an issue here ,this myth that because there in the military they are in some superior state of "HOCKEY" conditioning is fools gold.They just plain and simple are not a very good Hockey Team.They have average speed if that,cannot shot the puck at all(I hope they can shoot guns better than pucks for everyones sake and safety)What they do have is a whole lot of DESIRE and they never gave up!!!!.Because have no doubt what they did was hang on for dear life for about 50 min.of hockey.The shots on goal were more like 50+ not 40 as we all know thats an art not a science.What happened last night was we reached a frustration level that eventually took us off the TEAM concept and everyone was going to take it into their own hands and win this game.You are 100% correct that won't do in the ECACHL this is a defensive postured trap type league and their are going to be a whole lot of frustrating nights and we need to learn to deal with that pretty quick.Hopefully this "EMBARRASING" loose is a wake up call and we get that message real fast !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's see....they were on the road this weekend....tied Colgate 4-4....and beat you 2-1....very decent weekend I would say for a hockey team that "is not a very good hockey team"......that would make their coach a genius!

That's why we play the games. And I've heard a lot of excuses. Playing down to the team, bad refs, Military Appreciation Night being motivating factor, who knows. West Point had a hot goalie that kept them in the game, and we left off a few rebounds that went in. Live and learn. Best of luck next week to both teams.

I learned many years ago on Hockey-L that I must chose my words carefully when speaking about Army. There is no question in my mind that RPI has more significantly more talented palyers than Army. That, in itself, does not mean that RPI will beat Army consistantly. They do not let down at all for 60 minutes and just wait for a let down by the opponent. I have seen it too many times over the year.

RPI played a good game but couldn't put the puck in the net after the first ~5 minutes. One could see the result coming.
