    Tidbits from Smitty interview --all paraphrasing: Overall, He likes the team chemistry very much. Excellent leadership from upperclassmen and a willingness to compete for each other.

    Brock Game : Very good execution against a very solid Brock team. RPI power play returns all 10 players from two units and went 4 for 5 vs. Brock. Adding in Babichuk on the PP --he expects good things from both units.

    UMass: It will be an exciting challenge and test. UMass will raise a banner and have a alot of energy in the building....looking to see how our guys respond. Large olympic ice will pose a challenge and interested to see how the players adjust.

    UConn: HE opponent, lots of talent, another good test.

    Leaders and Players to watch as Smitty sees them:

    Chase Zieky - should lead the way in scoring and is a leader
    Mike Gornall - hard nosed, blue collar leadership
    Will Reilly - returned to school after having gotten a contract offer from Penguins
    Kyle Hallbauer - "elite, extremely talented" and lots of upside as a sophomore

    After his good freshman season and seeing how well he played in the exhibition, I think Hallbauer will have a breakout year

    C'mon RB, I'm lucky I got the live feed to play ! I don't see the archive on their podcast page, but maybe it'll appear later today or tomorrow.

    My paraphrased report is fairly complete. I did however leave out the embarrassing exchange with the 104.5 co-host not understanding what Smith was referring to when speaking about UMass's big ice. He thought he meant a large building, not the actual playing surface. Smith handled it gracefully. Ken Schott, please come back to Roger's show for college hockey segment !!!

    Agreed. I won't be able to watch the games and need to know where to look for analysis! I'll be up in Portland watching several former ECAC players in the Mariners' ECHL opener.

    Although I don't want to overthink exhibition results, it's still a good sign.

    That was my feeling also. Clearly the upcoming week will be a more significant test/

    While I have always enjoyed KS's college hockey analyses, his digressions to discuss Philadelphia sports teams irritate me. However, at least he isn't a Mets fan.

    I didn't see it mentioned here, but WRPI will be on hand this weekend.
    Also, UMass seems to have free streaming of their games.

    Early betting line for the games is 3-1 UMass for Friday and 3-2 UConn for Saturday. RPI getting very little respect from the bettors early in the season with the prediction as favorite in only 4 or 5 games all season. All of that could change very quickly with a good showing this weekend (which I expect). I am most always optimistic in early October

    I haven't listened to it yet.

    Edit: At about 26:50. Not much. Even less about RPI-UConn later.

    Todd Burgess is #90.



    Todd Burgess, RW, RPI: The offensive potential has always been there, now it’s time for Burgess to break out for the Engineers. He’s an Ottawa prospect.
