    Nick Quinn didn't play last part of 2009-10 season for whatever reason (sick, benched, injured).

    Nick Quinn named best d-man in Chowder Cup.
    Nick Quinn released by Dubuque.
    Nick Quinn signed by Des Moines (USHL).
    Nick Quinn signed by (Sudbury?) OHL.

    RB -- IIRC, Quinn went from Aurora to Orangeville. He had pneumonia, which is why he missed the latter part of the season.

    My own personal opinion is that the DBQ fiasco left RPI painted with the same bitterness they had toward Monty for kicking him to the curb. Once that happened, all bets were off, IMO.

    As much I wish he was heading to Troy, I'm glad he won't be showing up wearing an opponents jersey. Best of luck to Nick, and if you're listening, we still want you here !!!!!

    That was one report. I apologize if I got the order of the teams wrong.

    You probably are correct about the bitterness, but I can't believe that he couldn't fins another college to his likeness if he really wanted an education.

    I do still want him in Troy if he hasn't signed with the OHL yet, but ...

    No I agree, I think that the events from this summer brought MJs back into play...I recall reading that before he signed with RPI, all he was thinking was MJs until he played in a jr. tourney in Maine and got to see a Black Bears game...and loving it.

    The steady parade of youngsters who have jumped early to sign pro contracts didn't help the colleges that might've taken a run at him either, etc.

    I suspect that last sentence is correct. I also suspect tht Quinn Sr had something to say about the decision.

    I agree w all that is being said about NQ. I know you can never have enough in the queue but we are going to be stacked back there. Koudys, LeBeef, Luke, Bailen. I am of the thinking that we might be better than last year because the D is more mobile and that will take pressure off Yorkie (Plus other teams have attrited also). The captain's practice that I have attended I have observed that we are better on the blue line in that area. If you remember last year we would get stuck in are own end and that would lead to goals. The D being better skaters will alleviate this. Plus they are big except Nick B who can skate like the wind. **** I can't wait till the season starts.

    Agree that we look better on Defense than we have in some time-but that is one place where we never seem to have enough. I always worry about injuries on D leaving us short handed back there.

    I once dated a girl with the last name of Quinn...she broke my heart therefore, I will never trust a person with the last name Quinn ever again.
    Loyality means sticking with a thing in good and bad times. Not willing to do that, stay home, I got this.

    This is all kinds of win.
    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

    Velcro sneakers for this guy...my friends took away my sneakers with laces once they found out I was an RPI fan.
