To all the bedwetters out there with unrealistic expectations, Denver coach George Gwozdecky tells Ken Schott (http://www.dailygazette.com/videos/2010/mar/25/437/) about the job he thinks his former assistant Seth Appert is doing.

Take note on what Gwoz has to say about half way through. Gee... Where have we heard all this before?

Nice interview, it is nice to hear that Apert is still leaning on guys like Gwoz and Rico. Two coaches that have taken their teams to the finals of the tournament.
Our time is getting very close.

Agree-anyone know when coach SA's contract comes up for renewal? If i were the administration I sure would be looking to lock him up for an extended time period. ;)

I think it's either the end of next year or the year after that his contract is up for renewal; I can't remember whether the extension was for 2 or 3 years.

From Appert's profile on the RPI Athletics page (http://www.rpiathletics.com/coaches.aspx?rc=471):

During the summer of 2007, Appert signed a contract extension through 2011-12.

That is a great fluff article. But he failed miserably to coach that team to Albany. By his own admission he had a great goalie, hobey baker candidate, three awesome freshman, and role players to do the job but they weren't in Albany. The buck stops where?
I know I am not a fan because I criticize bouffount boy

I guess I am mad because I picked them to finish 4th in the ECAC when you knuckloeheads had them 8th or 9th and you still praise him.

he can recruit but can he coach??

Hear ye hear ye! The Lord Beman hath picked RPI to finish 4th in this, the previous season. The unfaithfuls were not as confident as lord Beman! SHAME!! SHAME upon all of ye! How dareth Squire Appert finish 6th. Since Appert and his children did not meet the expectations of Lord Beman, he hath failed. Off with his head!! This "Squire" is no Squire, Lord Beman states. This Squire is a mere jester contends our lord. Remember, always be faithful to your lord, Lord Beman. Never mind those predictions of the other coaches within the league. Never mind those predictions of the sportscasters who are paid to follow this league. No, the only prediction of consequence is that of our lord. Failure to meet these assertions is a clear mark of failure.

Furthermore, our lord would like to remind us that we were not blessed with the Rookie of the Year, Player of the Year, 2nd-team goalie, a Hobey Baker finalist, or two representatives on the all-Rookie team. Clearly this man can only recruit and has no coaching ability at all. Oh wait... that's not true? All of those accolades actually happened this past season? Well, never mind.

If you're going to insult our coach, you can at least get the joke right. A bouffant is closer to a beehive hairdo. But hey, what are facts here.

Eight teams don't make it to Albany. Heck, Yale didn't make it and they were fully expected to. However, you're not steaming and flapping off about them on their thread, are you? There are some things you can coach, and some things you can't. Fundamentals, plays, that you can teach. I'd love to see you teach a player to be consistent, though. That one is pretty much up to the player, and once they're out on the ice, they could have every skill the coach taught them, but ultimately the coach can't do all that much. But why mess up the old adage of "Players win, coaches lose"?

Some of the bios linked from the roster http://www.rpiathletics.com/roster.aspx?path=hockey& have been updated to include the past season. I assume the rest will also soon be updated.

Does anyone know when the team banquet will be held? That is when the team awards will be announced.

I have been away from the boards for a week or so because of work, and just catching up. I think that this clip says it all. Gwozdecky would love to have Seth back, and he's been thru it to the top and is taking this team there. The more that I hear and see of him, the more that I think he is a great representative of the institution and the program. The players and program are better for having him as their coach, and I could only hope that my son plays for him or a coach like him.

...and tracing thru the rest of the thread and see this.

Tell you what Beman - if you dont want him as your coach, that's fine. I be more than glad to for us to keep him. With your attitude, I dont think he'd ever consider you to be associated with any part of this program anyway...so I guess that we might be able to politely say that the feeling is mutual and should probably just leave at that and go separate ways. Best of luck to you.

Very well said, Senna.

And I just noticed something... why does he think I hate Atlantic City? Or is he referring to another dude?

Who knows whats rattling around in his head. I think there might be multiple personalities and one calling the other "Dude".

Congrats, Chase!

Also, Jerry had a little bit of an "honorable mention" for the all-Rookie team, although did not make the final list.

Kind of hoped for one player to make the all rookie team-either D'Amigo or Pirri could be considered deserving.:(

Usually I root for the ECAC team in any NCAA tournament-but I must admit I did not care for Cornell's chances this year. I am however rooting for Yale today. Next year it will be much easier to root for the ECAC representative;)
