  1. Happy Birthday shockbear!

  2. Silver seats in Knox are $16. Not gonna see the preds for $100 per family of four with all expenses added. Gotta agree with Mac. I've got 4 seats to preds in February, on blue line, halfway up, over $100 each, not counting parking and concessions. Add Sevier county's entertainment taxes and horrible traffic, Knoxville looks pretty good.
  3. The issue with this team is lack of coaching. No real system just a bunch of guys skating around and smacking at the puck. PP is abysmal, offense is lack luster to say the least(especially with the firepower that we have), defense doesn't show up half the time, and passing looks like peewee hockey. It's been 4 years, with no progression. Changes need to be made, not so much on the ice as behind the bench.

  5. The second goal was wrapped around his extended leg, not five hole.
  6. Too easy to insert Sich joke here.

  8. <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="IceBearsFrk" data-cid="56841" data-time="1358042589"><p> This is the absolute worst case of officiating I have ever witnessed. I honestly wish Mikey had pulled the team off the bench and forfeited the game!</p></blockquote> I am thinking the same thing. Worth the loss to make a point. Greco is too stupid to understand what it would be about.
  9. I guess Martin watched one hockey game on tv, and decided he would become a ref. The officiating in this league is getting worse every year (did not think that was possible). We should use the kids from the first intermission, they understand the game better than Martin.

I can't help but laugh reading how people are upset over this transaction. Those people obviously haven't seen Skoggard play. The guy is a wall! This may be one of the best moves Craigen has made as a coach. Folks, a goalie is like a quarterback in football. I don't care how good a team you put around them, if you don't have a good goalie/QB you aren't going to win anything. Rank is a respectable goalie...Skoggard is better. With this move I think we have the best goalie tandem in the league or at least on par with Vigier/Loewen down in Snakes land.</p></blockquote> 100% agree. Told the wife a while back, when Augusta had to release him, that I would love to pick him up. Gotta respect Craigen on this move. Fact is Toomey played himself into a job and Rank played himself out of one. Some people may not like Skoggard because he is from Augusta, some may be upset over losing Rank. I don't know. All I know is that I'm looking forward to this weekend more than I was yesterday, if that is possible. Welcome Skoggard.

  12. Great looking first period. Bet the ride home last night was probably unbearable, pardon the pun. Best 1st of the year. Crisp passes, a PP goal, and better defensive pressure. Keep it up. Go Bears!!! GRRRR!!!

  14. Our passing is terrible. Rank looks like he is still shaking out rust. The first period is killing us lately. Power play is terrible, as usual. Go Bears!!!!! GRRR!!!!
