BTW, you guys sure ripped Vermont a new one last night. You might say you "hazed" them pretty good
yeah unfortunately i missed the uvm game
i couldn't tell you much about baby because i just graduated this year from college and was away from home (rpi is in my home city) for 4 years and didn't get many chances to see games
i only saw baby once in the frozen four games when they were on tv and i couldnt tell you much about him
as for jessiman's skating, it was better than i expected it to be
however, he doesn't really skate in his own end much
i noticed that he mostly entered the offensive zone by accelerating wide near the boards and then cutting across the slot or sweeping behind the net
his acceleration was probably what impressed me most about his skating, which like i said, is better than i thought it would be for a guy his size, but not elite or anything
