    Re: RPI 2019 Off-Season: Where Did Everyone Go?

    Unless there is strong opposition, I intend to start the 2019-20 thread when this one closes as opposed to a second off-season thread or a pre-season thread.

    IMO the best title for the thread so far suggested is "RPI Hockey 2019 - 2020: Nordic Combined". This depends perhaps on Simon Kjellberg (Sweden) actually arriving. I think that we would have heard already if Ottoville Leppšnen (Finland) or Lilli Friis-Hansen (Denmark) were leaving, The women's recruit list containing Ena NystrÝm (Norway) has been published.

    Additional suggestions for a thread title are still appreciated.

    Yeah but this is his retirement job. This job was basically given to him. I doubt there was much of a search for col knowlton replacement. Heís on easy street.

    I think we should keep going up the food chain. It's SAJ's fault. What does she do beside ****ing people off for her multi-million dollar paycheck? Wait....let's go further. It's Sarah Huckabee Sanders' fault.😂

    Confirms Freakout! for 2/1 against UVM. Seven games against 5 different HEA teams, plus a pair each against Canisius and WMU. I don't know why we have two weird split home-and-homes.

    I had the day of the first game correct! I wonder how often I have done that before.

    They obviously aren't meant for this, last year's KRACH values suggest that we expect about 11-12 wins (depending on how you handle ties) out of this schedule. Basically right where we were last year.

    EDIT: I did a very basic adjustment based on how much teams tend to regress to the mean (i.e., their ratings tend toward 100), and that method yields 12-13 wins. So yay.

    Itís got a great lead-in to Thanksgiving week. Iím sure the players will be thrilled about playing Friday night in Troy and Saturday night in Buffalo. Thatís so we can help Harvard in their annual pursuit of Beanpot consolation game glory (in 10 of the last 11 tournaments they have been playing for 3rd). At first I didnít mind it, but now that itís an annual thing (and Harvard hasnít exactly represented the ECAC with success), itís ****ing me off.

    At least we are not playing Harvard on a Tuesday night. I never liked that situation. The question is, why couldn't we schedule a home game following the Harvard game?

    19 players made the ECAC All-Academic team with Brady Wiffen our selection to the Commissioner's List. https://www.ecachockey.com/men/2018-...ease_-_Men.pdf

    And he was a partial qualifier originally.

    Well I can't see it hurting, but a direct effect isn't likely. My understanding of the job is to identify/sort/funnel kids into the USHL ...the output of kids leaving the USHL for College careers is more about their development while in the league.

    But nonetheless, I've had the pleasure of knowing Luke and his family since his days in Troy ...a great guy who knows a ton about the game. Good luck to the BRO!!! His dad would be proud no doubt.
