I'd hate to see this show after a long losing streak.  JGT would probably release all the media guys a long with all of his players.

Hockey early, hockey often.

I wanted all fans who lost their team to have a place to come and still talk hockey.  You still have a home here at SPHL Forums!👍

Now THIS is a very smart agreement for both teams. 

Downloadable League schedule (in PDF).  Sure wish they'd issue one in Excel, to save me the trouble of translating & sorting. 

Ever seen our women's roller derby team?  Any of the 5 nominees could take the title.  Vote early, vote often.

Anybody heard about Landmesser’s future plans?

Quad City SPHL Team to Reveal New Name, Logo, Team President, and Head Coach

OurSportsCentral

 

Branding will make this team real.  It will give Quad Cities hockey fans - dedicated AND casual - an anchor point for their emotions.  It will allow the organization to actually promote a product rather than a promise. GAME ON! 

Can't say that I noticed any of those issues ( as a Roanoke fan I couldn't spell, or pick half of your team out of a line up and definitely wouldn't know where they came from prior to coming to Fayetteville). So maybe I should rephrase my statement to say I think Ben's in game twitter feed was the most entertaining in the league. I can honestly say that I almost always checked in on game nights to read his tweets, and Fayetteville is the only team (asside from Roanoke of course) that I did that for.

New Quad Cities' hockey franchise hires head coach

KWQC - TV 6

 

I have a question: Is this it for QC as far as guaranteed players and then the rest of their roster will be made up of free agent signings, or is there a dispersal draft for those former Mississippi players?

Having been a team doc since 1997, starting with the Channel Cats, then the Tornado, then the Channel Cats again, and now the Havoc, let me shed some light on this. The CHL CC's folded and didn't have a team in 2001 (I guess fortunately for me since I was called up by the Air Force Reserves after 9/11 and was not able to be in Huntsville that season). John Cherney bought the franchise and renamed it the Tornado for the 2002-3 season. That name didn't stick well with Huntsville/Madison County residents as the area had (and has) been hit hard with tornadoes, so the CC name was revived for the 2003-4 season. When Keith Jeffries bought the franchise from Mr Cherney, the CC name was not allowed to continue. In fact, even banners of CC championships and retired numbers of CC players were removed from the VBC. I don't know all the politics of "The Columbus folks weren't comfortable with thew Channel Cats owner running the show. so they did a bit of a coupe, along with Knoxville, Fayetteville, and some of the WHA-2 franchises..." so I won't comment on that statement.

Former Rivermen Ryan Reaves (now with the Vegas Golden Knights) & Lars Eller (Washington Capitals) are facing each other in the Stanley Cup Finals ... https://twitter.com/Peoria_Rivermen/status/999675380381421569

Greg wanted Rod to stay on for this past season but he was still under contract to Edmonton and they wanted him doing something, anything for them so he was scouting again. I think there was a brief negotiation after 2016-17 but Edmonton may have been asking for too much.

Wow! So now Pensacola, Fayetteville, and Quad City are all in the hunt for new head coaches. Seems like a good coach has some options!

SPHL President reacts to new Quad City team

That last bit seems to work against this:

 

How about Quakers? (Credit to a certain Bulls fan on FB).

Ouch,this stings a bit.Its gonna be tough to bring in someone as good as Coach Kerr,maybe Leo Thomas will be our new coach.

I don't think they are coming this year, do like Roanoke did and have a year to get in the community and build their brand. Looks like from reading the article the team won't be called the "Mallards". While I was at 1st disappointed we had to wait a year before we started playing, looking back it was the right decision.
