Heres a Chase Polacek (http://dansallows.com/player-profile-chase-polacek/) player profile from Dan Sallows. No doubt he will be one of the most sought after collegiate free agents at the end of the year. IMO, I dont think he will have any problems matching last years numbers, it will be somewhat harder without JDA and BP but I think he can do it.

He does need someone else to step up a little to help him out. As of right now, the word on RPI is to put all of your defensive efforts on Polacek. I don't think that's going to work, but we're going to need at least one guy make himself a solid threat on another line to open Chase back up to put his thing down and do what he does.

was at practice tonight...add another former Engineer to come back and skate w/the cherry & white, Oren Eizenman. I know that a couple of people already know this but Eric Burgdoerfer is on his way to Toronto to take part in the Maple Leafs practices, which I believe start on the 9th.:D

In honor of Marty O'Grady and Kendra Dunlop, today is 8 September 2010. There are 27 days until RPI's next game.


This is based upon 5 October for the start of next season.

Oh, totally, so I can never change my mind, ever. Most certainly you can. :)

I also expect a big year from Marty along with one or two of the freshmen as well. 27 days...:)

Also agree-keep an eye on Tinordi-he could be the big upside surprise. :)

I have been having internet problems today. This reply has gone into the either three times already.

I agree about Cullen and also think that AAG will step up. Hopefully, O'Grady won't suffer much from the loss of Pirri.

I also think that Bailen, Bergin, and Dolan (The Beef too?) will contribute a lot on offense, especially the power play. I don't think that Koudys will be much of a contributor on offense as his speciality is apparently as a shutdown defenseman. He did, however, step up his offense last year when Luke Juha was out of the lineup.

That said, I have a hard time seeing RPI falling in the standings and feel they'll be right in contention for a first round bye again this year.

That's pretty much where my head is at as well. More scoring by committee. If Patty can regain his scoring ways, it will take some heat off of Chase's line. Definitely more scoring from the blueline. This, added with what I expect will be a D that clears the puck with more skill should help us eliminate some of the ugly red zone turnovers we've had trouble with.

Burgie is under contract with Bakersfield (ECHL) for '10-11. B'fld is now an affiliate of the Wild...not sure how Toronto figures in... GLM can shed some light....great news for Erik regardless!

Outstanding opportunity!...I am on record from last season having stated that Erik very quietly had a great year...nothing that jumped off the page, although he did cut his PIMs in half. His one-on-one D work was very good for much of the season.

Thanks for the intel Turk. :p

I think part of his cutting PIM in half was the fact that the skaters were noticably an extra foot or two further away. Indirect source of cause: http://www.withoutapeer.com/2009/12/tragedy-at-6000-10-months-later.html

He's signed to Bakersfield, not Minnesota. Not everyone on a minor league roster, even in the AHL, is attached to the NHL team for which their team is affiliated.
