  1. My only thought is maybe something to do with the laser system on the zamboni. Not sure though
  2. The new sound system. They eliminated the speakers that used to be above the scoreboard. Now there are speakers above each section.
  3. I like the way the clock looked last night, much easier to see than in the past.
  4. Possible move to sign another veteran?
  5. I think Bob McGinn said on GRL that they will be able to get 1500 or so in there. My guess is it will be like Lahaye and be mostly bleachers.
  6. The Express ownership ousted John Gagnon and Pierre Paiemant when they invested in the Mississippi Sea Wolves. Gagnon was the money man and the remaining owners didn't have the deep pockets he did. Then after that, poor choices in the GM dept., which lead to unfulfilled promises made concerning nightly giveaways and such. Then mountains of unpaid bills finally lead to the demise. All in all just poor leadership and decision making.
  7. Little disappointed that there wasn't a throw back Express choice.
  8. Heard the same stuff. I know there was one occasion in which the Dawgs were short some d-men and Ftorek asked him to play some on D for some parts of a game and he refused. I know he sat a few games for that incident and then his not being well liked in the locker room lead to his being sent out.
  9. Although they may be a little more organized, but it kinda has that NPHL feel to it.
  10. Make better use of the video board. Play funny or motivational scenes from movies(they did it a bit toward the end of the season but not enough). Stop playing the same techno-dance songs every other stopage of play. Would love to see new bigger, brighter goal lights. Lastly, play Chelsea Dagger correctly after a goal or find a new goal song.
  11. Yes, but his being scratched a lot the last month probably played into the decision. All we can do is speculate, none of us are in the room.
  12. Salem no longer has ice capabilities, haven't since the mid 80s when the Lancers moved to Vinton. I believe hey sold the equipment to Winston-Salem way back then.
  13. Have to wonder if that win streak(even though it was great), may have taken a little out of the team. Especially since the hole they were in was already real deep.
  14. According to SPHL transactions, Guyon has been signed to a contract.
  15. From what i've heard that is the case. Dodds is apparently injured, but not enough to be put on IR. Barone is apparently insurance.
  16. According to the BC website the Dawgs will practice on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Then will practice on March 5 and 6. The ice will be removed on the 6th after practice and will be rebuilt on the 12th.
  17. Agreed, they don't play the right part(watch Blackhawks home games). Would like them to play the Rangers goal song or Islanders.
  18. Yes, but it's not like we traded away Murray, Mele, Wetzil, Sova or Barone.
  19. Need to back it up with a win tommorow night. Start putting these guys in the rear view.
  20. Lines are hard to see also. Obviously the SPHL doesn't have a standard like the NHL when it comes to that.
  21. Ice needs to be taken down and then re-done. With the new floor covering they have, they don't take the ice down as much as they used to. With no moster truck show there this year, hasn't been a need to take down I guess.
  22. GM Mickey Gray said on Greg Roberts Live after Ftorek was let go that he would be paid until the end of the SPHL season.
  23. Hopefully he passes thru waivers.
