  1. I was told that back in 2005 when we lost the Trax that a former owner was seriously considering restarting a team until he read a post about him on one of the forums. He wasn't going to put up with that crap. We went 10 years without hockey. We drove many a mile to see hockey in Columbus. If everything works out be happy with your team. Burn is about as bad as Trax but let it rest and be thankful you have hockey.
  2. I don't think either one will be back.
  3. That explains the lousy schedule.
  4. 3700 on Friday
  5. So this is what we get for finishing first in the season standings, Sunday and Monday games. Good crowds? No way.
  6. That's deceptive. Beirnes has a regular shift. Drobot has about one shift per period. Figure minutes played per game.
  7. I should have mentioned the name of the Japanese resturant is Sakura. Very good and cheap.
  8. Good Mexican food at El Sombrero on North Ave. Good cheap Japaneese ($6) on Shurling Dr. The Rookery on Cherry St. Is good. Many other good places downtown. All these places are within a couple of miles from the arena. You can also get one our famous Nu-way hot dogs on Emory Hwy.
  9. I remember the 73-74 Rebels well. We had the Whoopees in the SHL for half of that season before they went belly up. I never missed a game. Hockey was a lot different back then. Line brawls were common. The Roanoke player I remember most is Serge Beaudoin. I am almost sure that he intentionally shot a puck at me during a game. Not that I was harassing him or anything. He was just plain mean. Of course most of the players were back then. Great memories.
  10. Never saw a goalie pulled that early.
  11. I've got to know how Columbus scored an empty net goal with 5 minutes left in the game. I know they had a 2 or 3 goal lead but I have never seen a goalie pulled that early.
  12. I always got my emails prompt and without errors.
  13. Disney is here April 13-16.
  14. Looks like Disney has our ice for the first weekend of the playoffs.
  15. If you don't like it close your eyes and plug your ears. It doesn't involve anybody but the players who choose to pray. It's their business.
