He seems good, but not that good. IMHO, both Laliberte and Higgs are significantly better. That's probably the bottom line. I too would like to get a legacy, but getting the best players possible seems more important.

Thanks Ralph-I just had no info on him and he did not seem to be heavily scouted.

Another thought is that Wicked mentioned that he saw Jooris at the Niagara game. http://board.uscho.com/showpost.php?p=4471842&postcount=627 Perhaps Jooris had a discussion with SA at that time and decided that RPI's final offer was insufficient.

None of this is based on any knowledge of what actually happened.

Possibly. I think if SA really wanted him and set his sights on him-he would have had the inside track and got him. He must have been on the back burner (if he was on the stove at all;) )

Should we have been interested? Was he scholarship worthy? I don't know anything about him but it would have been nice to have a legacy on the roster I suppose.
IIRC, he's leading his team in scoring which is nothing to sneeze at. His father is an ahtletic trainer and a coach specializing in face-off technique...so my guess is he is in very good shape and has great hockey smarts. But as RB has mentioned here repeatedly, the scholly money account for '10 has to be in the red. :p

From USHR:
Other schools in the mix were St. Lawrence, RPI, Dartmouth, Yale, Quinnipiac, and Providence College. A parent's worst dream...all those world class universities and the kid chooses a state school in HE...:eek: :D

and we probably still need one more defenseman

I had no information about him. Usually I can gather a few tidbits from sources but in this case I had nothing. In looking at the next recruit class, if they all come, we should be OK offensively. I am not a good judge of young defensemen-but as you know I do like them big-and I would love to see us add just 1 more pillar of strength out there.

Thinking of big, the NHL CSB measured Jarred Tinordi as 6' 5.5" and 205 lb http://www.nhl.com/league/ext/Central%20Scouting/2010/PrelimRankingsDomestic.pdf. We could have used him on D. (The U18 is considered part of the USHL which is the last section of the list.)

He's listed in the RPI directory but obviously not playing. He also isn't playing on the club team http://www.achahockey.org/team_roster.php?team_id=101882&league_id=1061.

I suppose there is a slight chance that we will see him next year, but probably SA has someone else in mind, or Greg Burgdoerfer will play defense. (Or Erik will return as Greg -- who would know? ;) )

Would have, could have and should have been nice. But we cannot win them all. :(

Well, it's not as if Seth didn't make a run at him - he made as good an effort at him as he could considering his talent level. Once the big boys came calling and he hadn't decided to come play at the same place as his brother, it was pretty much over for RPI at that point. Them's the breaks unfortunately. If things keep progressing upward, RPI will start to win those battles.

I find it hard calling Notre Dame one of the big boys. They have only been abve mediocrity for about three years.

You are right that "them's the breaks." I wonder if we are after anyone else from the national program.

Given where the program was situated at the time (and still is under Jeff Jackson) certainly puts them in there. They were coming off of a National Championship Game appearance and were a #1 seed in the tournament last year. Kids aren't buying into the history so much as they are where the program is at currently or is headed in the future and who the coach is.

You can see how certain parts of that might work to RPIs benefit further in the future as they're working out right now. :)
