  1. So a couple expansion threads from now, barring an ECHL relocation superseding it...
  2. Speaking of new arenas and feasibility studies did anyone ever see this? Savannah, GA’s consideration of a new arena, with permanent ice and very likely a full-time hockey team included... was there any progress on this?
  3. Would a new arena have ice though?
  4. I was always under the impression that the building was the biggest sticking point for getting another team back in Greensboro.
  5. It's very much in that classic ECHL group as a market. For their historical support levels--and especially market size--they deserve a team, and it's sad/ridiculous that they don't.
  6. I did one create-a-team and got so exhausted by the process I didn't even make it through the expansion draft. Nice work!
  7. The Rebels are notable for A—actually having a Turner Cup on their mantle, in 1959; and B—being the direct successor to my old hometown’s older team, the Huntington Hornets (1956-57).
  8. I must be old as hell. Louisville has had several teams over the years. It’s been almost 20 years since their last one though—their owner salted the earth to such an extent that nobody’s made a real effort to bring a team back, and I don’t think the State Fair complex even has an ice plant these days.
  9. A tiered setup would be interesting. But aren't the salary caps in the FHL and SPHL still pretty close to each other? This would be something where the two sides would have to sit down together, open their books up, and figure out how best to mesh things up.
  10. I’m still trying to figure out how the hell Winston-Salem happened, given the rank ineptitude of the rest of the league
  11. A co-op ownership setup would be a neat idea--certainly a better idea than what the CHL actually was in the 2000s.
  12. It had AA/AAA minor league players in it, playing in the ice hockey off-season. I'm excited to see this!
  13. The tricky bit is that they ONLY do overtime if they’re tied after both games. That being said: Peoria would still beat Roanoke, 7-3 Knoxville would still beat Pensacola, 9-5 Macon would beat Evansville 7-3 BUT Mississippi would have beaten Huntsville 7-4. This is the downside to going by aggregate score—if you win one game by buckets, you’ve basically got it in the bag. Even including the OT goals wouldn’t swing things in either direction in those two series.
