    Just came from the rink and talked to the Havoc staff. Teams are allowed 19 players on contract (in addition to any on IR), but only 18 are allowed to dress and be on the bench. Doc

    They may be looking for a sponsorship from Rosetta Stone.

    I am intrigued. There are so many factors that could influence a 1 seeds decision. Say the six seed is the 1 seeds top rival, or the 5 seed has no home ice available, or maybe the 8 seed has had the 1 seeds number all season or travel costs could play into it. I mean being top seed is supposed to give you an advantage in the playoffs so why not give them the choice of who they play instead of just assuming that being paired against the bottom is the best advantage for them.

    Brad Pawlowski has decided to return to Canada to begin his post-hockey life with his family. Thank you Plow for 164 games of SPHL hockey - all wearing an Ice Bears jersey.

    Rule changes: 78.5 Disallowed Goals – Apparent goals shall be disallowed by the Referee and the appropriate announcement made by the Public Address Announcer for the following reasons: (i) When the puck has been directed, batted or thrown into the net by an attacking player other than with a stick. When this occurs, if it is deemed to be done deliberately, then the decision shall be NO GOAL. A goal cannot be scored when the puck has been deliberately batted with any part of the attacking player’s body into the net. 79.2 Defending Zone - Play will not be stopped for any hand pass by players in their own defending zone. The location of the puck when contacted by either the player making the hand pass or the player receiving the hand pass shall determine the zone it is in. 85.5 Face-Off Location - Notwithstanding this rule, should an attacking player cause the puck to go out of play or become unplayable in the attacking zone, the face-off shall take place at a neutral zone face-off spot or at a face-off spot in the zone from which the puck left the ice, whichever is less advantageous to the attacking team. When the attacking team shoots the puck towards the opponent’s goal from inside the attacking zone and it hits the goal post or crossbar and goes out of play, the ensuing face-off shall take place at one of the end zone face-off spots in the attacking zone. When the same happens but the puck is shot towards the opponent’s goal from any other zone, the face-off shall take place at the nearest face-off spot in the zone from where the puck was shot. If, however, the attacking team shoots the puck into the zone and a delayed off-side is indicated, or if the attacking team contacts the puck with a high-stick or bats the puck with a glove and it then deflects off the goal post or crossbar and goes out of play, the ensuing face-off shall be in the neutral zone outside the offending team’s attacking zone. 87.1 Time-out - Each team shall be permitted to take one (1) thirty-second time- out during the course of any game, regular season or playoffs. All players in- cluding goalkeepers on the ice at the time of the time-out will be allowed to go to their respective benches. No time-out shall be granted to the defensive team following an icing. 80.4, 81.4 & 81.5 are also supposed to have changes, but none were indicated (except 80.4 is missing).

    Came up and started talking to me at Gold's gym, really solid guy. Cool thing is, he approached me and one of my friends in casual convo. Had no idea who he was at the beginning but its very good to see a coach with a personality like that. He is going to take us back to the good days. It just may take a year or two. But he definitely is a guy players will want to play for.

    Translated to English... We regret to inform you of the departure of Tayler Thompson. He leaves the Albatross for personal reasons. We wish him good luck in the future. We decided to part with two other players, Jeff Jones and Benoît Valier. Good continuation to them for the continuation.

    I think this is a great trade for Fayetteville. I think Bonar has a great chance of sticking in the ECHL and you got two quality players for him. I think you'll love Massimo.

    Thanks for sharing Mac. I think we here in Roanoke are blessed with a great group of owners and its always nice to see what they have to say, whether it be about the Dawgs or their own careers.

    It's been quiet not only here but the rest of the league. I guess the coaches are waiting for the ECHL camps so they can start picking up the crumbs.

    I figured I would do something a bit different than just post the roster. Have a gander. This will keep all Bulls' fans abreast of up-to-date stats in addition to knowing the roster.

    Last season, 5th, 6th & 7th finished 5 points apart. As close as things can get coming down to the wire, I can see 5th & 6th fighting to try to take 4th and I can see 4th trying to steal 3rd to get at least some choice. Ice availability and travel distance are really going to factor in as well, I think.

    I agree, not good. I bet this will change next season. Doesn't the owners vote on this?

    Or, we could all take the high road with a little positivity by getting behind this and spreading the word to try and get as many signatures as we can. Who knows, it might also impress the city with how badly we want and deserve a new arena.

    It was Ray Boudiette on the ice last night not Cook. And yes, I know exactly what pre-season hockey is about. No lesson needed there. Just a thought.

    So it's Sharkies for the goal, unassisted. That answers half of GloriousDan's frantic questioning, anyway.

    Macon wins the exhibition game 5-2. Lots of their team was part of their championship group last year. Very experienced at working together. Our guys have been on the ice for 3 days together. Not quite apples and apples. First cuts to training camp roster tomorrow.

    MRK's bus broke down so they're not going to be able to make it. The game is canceled, but the Havoc are still going to have an intrasquad scrimmage and maybe a skills competition. Free admission.

    Just writing out a few more of the ECHL updates here: Fiorentino, Graves, and Lubin released on Saturday. Scorcia and Schumacher released on Sunday. Worth noting that Justin MacDonald was also released on Sunday. Not sure if there's any chance he's making his way back to Evansville, but he's not restricted.

    Beyond the hype & the national pride, this young man has worked hard & made all the wise choices to get this well-deserved shot at playing in the best hockey league in the world. AIHL hockey & playing for his national team did not present him with the sort of competition he needed to excel, so he made a smart move to play juniors in the Czech Republic. Then he showed he could play & compete in the North American game with a short stop in the USHL before paying his pro dues with South Carolina in the ECHL and Hershey in the AHL. I hope the Capitals & their fans make this a VERY special night for Nathan Walker, and wish him a long career in the NHL.

    Since when does 52 games played constitute "veteran" status? Bes' definition is somehow different than the SPHL obviously.
