When they take a little Tiger snooze?
Do they dream of mauling goalies?
And opponents in their hockey suits.

Exhibition game against Wilfred Laurer.

Have to figure both goalies will get about a half of work, unless they want to give Roppenan some time. I think we will see mostly Madelora and Watson. Another key question is on the blue line with the losses of Ringwald, Tanev, and Mazur.

The big three forwards return. I figure RIT will rely heavily on them early on and see who steps up as secondary scorers.

From Coach Wilson's quotes on the player pages, I'm willing to bet watson will be the starting goalie come the UNO tourney. As far as D goes, we did get a few freshman who are big bodied defenders, and you also have to take into account that it's not just one or two or 3 players that bring success it's the whole team. Yes, those are the area's of concern. But I'm looking on the bright side. :)

Not sure where you are reading player pages from - as the only thing I know of that would apply would be the writeup for the freshmen.

I expect that both Madelora and Watson will play a game in the UNO tournament.

We will see what the new D-men bring to the table. Ringwald was such a lock-down D-man that he will be hard to replace. One plus is that Eckenswiller will be back so that will help the cause. Spivak got good playing them and did fairly well I thought. I expect Haltigan and Seracino to have good years and the main returning D-men.

Completely agree with you. As far as pages go:

Josh Watson (http://www.ritathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=7327&path=mhock)

Shane Madalora (http://www.ritathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=7313&path=mhock)

I also really want to see Mitchell play. He's massive. Height: 6-3, Weight: 195

Guys as big as Mitchell don't often go to schools like RIT unless they are diamonds in the rough or the coaching staff gets a little lucky. Definately will be interested to see what he brings to the table.

I'm unsure as to which I consider a bigger question mark on defense coming into the season: replacing the entirity of the shut-down pairing, or that the Tigers are going to have at minimum two freshmen defensemen in the lineup every night.

I see from his bio that Eckenswiller played with Haltigan in Oakville prior to RIT...does anyone know if they were a pairing there?

EDIT: For that matter, have they played together at RIT? I don't remember ::o :

It worked out okay last year!

Could you post that one more time. I didn't get it the first couple times. haha

GO TIGERS!

I think the biggest area of concern for me is goaltending. As we should all know, an excellent goalie can make an average team very good, but a below-average goalie can make a very good team very average.

What's this doing on page 2 when a $3.5 million expansion of The Ritter was just announced?

(It's the new locker rooms and other facilities being built to the east of the arena.)

http://www.ritathletics.com/news/2010/9/28/MHOCKEY_0928103510.aspx

A couple oddities I've noticed:

1) They're starting the construction in October and ending in April. That seems a bit backwards; wouldn't it make more sense to start it after hockey's done for the year and have it finished before it starts up again?

2) Handicapped stalls in the locker rooms' rest rooms?

They probably dont want construction during brick city. The biggest factor in starting so late would probably be the Global Village project running late. It looks like they may get the last few bricks laid as alums and such are walking on them. Thant and RIT deciding to rip up a good chunk of campus to do random little things over summer.

Komey,

You forgot the >>>>> <<<<< bracketing of the thread title. Now it takes me forever to find the Tigers Thread. :) :)

Lots of offensive firepower coming back and coming in. Scoring goals shouldn't be a worry at this point. Like everyone else my worry is the D and the goalie.

I'll venture a guess that Watson and Madalora share duties until one of the establishes dominance. Both bring good resumes with them. Madalora a backup on a championship USHL team, and Watson as a frontline goalie in the BCHL. Statistically he was top 5 over the season with 2.27 gaa in a offense minded league.

We should have some preliminary answers by the end of October. Just remember the lessons of last year. It's not how you play in October or November. It's how you play in March that makes history.

Newsworthy In the "First Tiger in the NHL" race, it looks like Chris Tanev will be starting the season with the Canucks' AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose:

DeMike will be with the Caps' Hershey Bears:

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/capitalsinsider/capitals-release-updated-train.html

Steve Pinizzotto may or may not end up with the Bears but, as of this post, I am unable to find any mention of him being assigned to Hershey, so I'm assuming he's still in the Caps training camp. He even got in a fisticuff with the Predators' Kelsey Wilson this past Saturday in preseason play.

Technically, they are only competing in the Moose / Bears camps so far. The AHL camps contain a lot of guys filling the rosters until the season starts and the final cuts from the NHL teams come down. A fair number of them end up in the ECHL. I would imagine Tanev has a good shot to stay up in Manitoba, while DeMichiel's road may be a bit tougher with the Caps so loaded at goaltender... but you never know.

May be an ADA law...
Also, they may host sled-hockey games / tournaments at some point.
