RE: Rodrigue's accuracy from the last thread, does anyone remember a game in his senior year where he was just back from like a thumb or wrist injury and hadn't played much or teed one up? It was late in the game, Maine was up big and had a powerplay, and Walshy sent him out to test things out.

Sure enough, Maine wins an offensive zone draw, Rodrigue lines up a one timer off a d-to-d pass and gets everything on it, only it flew right over the balcony and hit the back wall. Face-off outside the zone, Maine brings it in, another d-to-d, Rodrigue drills one off the facade of the balcony. A fair number of people up there promptly decided it was an appropriate time to try to beat traffic.

I do remember that game and I also remember the other players on the ice anywhere in the vicinity of the goal ducking or seeming to wince whenever Rodrigue took a one timer. They weren't on net very often but it was still fun watching them....from the side view of course!

Pretty cool that he took an expansion team in Dubuque and led them to the best record in the Western Conference and a series appearance in the Finals.

I'd like to see Timbo try and do that.

EDIT: I guess you can pay to watch the games here: http://www.b2tv.com/upcoming_events.asp?q=l&value=USHL

Hey Ray, Nice thread title. But of course you know that's just crazy talk. Men's hockey outdrawing women's hoops? Right, like that's ever gonna happen.:rolleyes:

Hope all is well is your neck of the woods. Two straight days of all-day rain here in Denver. Happens about twice a year. Cold as well. Too cold for a marg!:eek:

Looking forward to Sunday afternoon when the DU men's lacrosse team hosts Villanova in a firsdt round NCAA tournament lacrosse game on campus at Peter Barton Stadium. Have a good weekend.

Sweeper, I would love to be wrong about Abbott.

tape to tape passes should be expected on EVERY play at this level.
Merrimack can do it... the entire team can do it.

you apparently have the video... do me a favor and count the shorties that Maine gave up that were all his fault this past season
vision and hands mean that you do not put a puck into a defender's shins when quarterbacking the PP
vision and hands means that you do not miss passes and let the puck bounce into the neutral zone or just plain pass it into the neutral zone while quarterbacking the PP. (and compare him to Bret Tyler... when Tyler messed up like that, he was fast enough to get back and dive and knock the puck off the stick of the guy on the break away... speedy Bret Tyler)

those are mistakes that freshmen defenders get to make ONCE in their careers, as a Mulligan. But Abbott and Hopson were given Mulligan after Mulligan.... and we see where Hopson has been playing (He also was touted has having Whitehead-esque "elite vision and hands" and while I liked Keenan a lot as a person and I like Spencer... neither one was NHL or AHL calibre, in my "never been so wrong in my life" opinion)


I do not know how long you have been following hockey, but if you think that he is a good passer, I am afraid you have not been exposed to "good" college hockey.
