  1. Predators prove hockey can work in South By Ron Seibel - Macon Telegraph Read more here: http://www.macon.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/ron-seibel/article152645284.html#storylink=cpy
  2. They actually said "12 members". Which made me wonder if Columbus (and Louisiana?) can remain a member without fielding a team.
  3. This is a great idea.
  4. Since STX and Warrior both sell them, will the league require each player to use only sticks made by one of them? I know it used to be a violation to use equipment made by someone other than the official vendor.
  5. Game 1 is Monday night between the Nashville Predators and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Who is going to win and in how many games? - The Predators who swept Chicago in the first round? Or the Penguins who could have just as easily lost 2 of 3 rounds? - The Cinderella Wild Card team from Nashville? Or the 2nd best team from Pittsburgh? - The Southern team within travel distance of virtually every SPHL city? Or the Northern team from the Rust Belt? - The team in front of rising star Pekka Rinne? Or the team behind up-and-down Sydney Crosby? - The team in yellow? Or the team in yellow?
  6. The Ice Bears will be hosting a Street Hockey event at Central Flats & Taps on N Central St. (directions) from 12 noon - 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 3rd. 10% of all food and beverage sales will be donated to support Friends of Literacy.
  7. So, how about those IceGators back in the day with their 40 PIMs per game average?
  8. One Last Fight By James Mirtle - The [Toronto] Globe and Mail Read more at: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/robert-frid-enforcer-fighter-stuggles-with-concussions-hockey/article28929084/ CAUTION: Contains some language and graphic details.
  9. Rivermen in for long haul, sign lease with Civic Center through 2020 by Dave Eminian - JournalStar Read more at: http://www.pjstar.com/sports/20170519/rivermen-in-for-long-haul-sign-lease-with-civic-center-through-2020
  10. That, I think, would require a reversal of what has brought several ECHL teams to our league over the years - the cost of dropping attendance. A state-of-the-art 10,000 seat arena would not only attract entertainment revenue opportunities the city is currently locked out of, but it can't help but increase attendance at hockey games - attracting everyone from families excited to check out a new entertainment complex to those that stopped coming because they were tired of sitting in those rickety old wooden seats. Whether or not that would be enough to warrant a jump to the E would remain to be seen.
  11. Or, you could just link to them. Like this and this. Unless you've made even better ones since then. Since I'm linking, here are mine as well.
  12. Update, today, from the Mayor:
  13. From the mayor herself, today: But, to answer your question, claims of detailed inside information with nothing offered to support them are generally met with some level of skepticism. You do seem to be pretty knowledgeable about the information you do supply, though. So I will try to be less condescending, with my apologies.
  14. I'll agree with you on that last point. When nearly 2 years comes around next year and nothing has happened, I'll be genuinely worried about the status of the project.
  15. Sounds like a single, isolated incident.
