Mr. Eminian to the rescue ...

    • Thanks

Thanks for the consult, Doc. 

Good stuff, Shaun.  Consider yourself Promoted.

Some of us has been calling for Phil to go. Wonder if ownership had Input from of the Senior players? Let's see what the new coach can do. Who knows? Can't do any worse than Phil. Hopefully we'll get back some of our better skaters from the E and make a move up the standings.

I'm surprised to see these dates announced so soon.  Lots of moving parts to mesh together.  Good on the teams getting it together so quickly. 


Yeah but if it were me or my company paying to be one of the on-ice sponsors I would raising hell that my company isn't getting what they paid for. JMO but I hope they can figure it out, would look so much better.

Best benefit in the SPHL, hands down. 

Bumping this thread for the interest of new Forums members.  And I'll repeat the invitation to post photos of your own home arena in this thread.  If you are fortunate enough to take a road trip, you are encouraged to post away game photos as well.

As for the average attendance in Fayetteville, there's still a lot of work to be done but the front office/ownership has done an outstanding job thus far to increase attendance to get it to where it is today.  They've come up with new promotions and increased marketing which has made a huge difference.  Rome wasn't built in a day but the attendance will increase to the numbers which we once had at the Crown.  Kudos to all of the hard work they've put in thus far!!!!!!  

It would depend on when said playoff game would be, because the only event listed so far on the BC website for April is PBR Bull Riding on April 13-14, that would take place in the arena.

It was pretty clear Sailor's rulebook was missing several pages.

Sounds like FHL will be the only choice?  Problem is the FHL is in such sad shape with all but 1 team only filling 5-600 seats a game- Which means they are losing $$$ every week. If team and league owners did not bail out a team already this year they would have been down to 5 and of the 5 one of the teams looks like a high school team of sorts. Sad!

Definately seemed very insane.  Made the one guy who played in the AHL and was sent down to them seem like he was very unhappy about the situation. Like he was living in luxury compared to Brampton players.  Also, made me realize why so many players might go to Europe to play.  Makes you wonder if they werent playing a game they all loved and getting payed for it and was a regular job, people would be complaining about unsafe working conditions.  It would be nice if he went and did a story on a team that was making money and could afford a lot more.  Just to see how much of a difference the experience would be.  Great behind the scenes story.  Just shows you what some players have to go through to try to make it.  Definately not glamorous!!!

In a simple answer, which is rare for me around these parts, offensive consistency. Once all three lines can get clicking at the same time, they will be a force to be reckoned with. The goaltending is not as bad as their record indicates, nor is their defense (see: Penalty Kill). Once the offensive production becomes more regular, including the power play, the RiverKings will be a team that can steamroll their way through the playoffs. 

Y'all are going to want to read my article tomorrow
I got some things to say

Maybe he got some of that big crowd that normally don't come to games fired up to come back to more

Nothing but the best, state-of-the-art equipment in Knoxville, eh? 

An event that went from tragedy to triumph, by the grace of God & the selfless acts of the North American hockey community.  It should never be forgotten ...

Yeah, I wish Pointstreak would do some qualifying for stats. Nick Kohn, bless his heart, that guys save percentage is literally 50%. Pyle wouldn't let him in the games when he had a guy with a 5.46 GAA in net, so certainly speaks volumes about what he thought he could do.


On the flipside, you've got guys like Dillian Fox playing less games and getting more goals. He's got a 0.6 goals per game average, so even though he's got 3-4 less games he's top two. Don't know if anybody's number is higher than Justin Macdonald with 0.75, but he's been gone for a while now so his 12 goals in 16 games has slipped out of the top.


Jake Trask is something else with those goals and assists. Any reason why he's not getting more attention from the ECHL? Looks like his last call was 2014-15.
