  2. FACT: You have never played in the NHL....or any other professional hockey league most likely. So what makes you know so much about a good coaching hire again??
  3. Why the negativity? Don't you see the potential great publicity this offers the Marksmen team and the potential for great things in the community? It isn't always the highly skilled players that make great coaches anyways. It's good for the league and the Marksmen. Get over yourself.
  4. Honestly, coming in after a terrible season can be seen as a good thing: you have nowhere to go but up. It would be a great opportunity for a proven coach or a rookie coach to improve the results. The odds are very small that the ownership goes through 3 coaches again next season....I think whoever gets the job will have plenty of time to recruit and get the team winning on the ice.
  5. Ya know....maybe family and friends decided to put Spraggs over the top. When fan voting is involved, it isn't about the best player at that point.....other things come into play. Pretty simple to understand....

    Can we get a video posted of the fight for those that haven't seen it yet?!
  7. I wouldn't call anything you have ever done on these forums discussion......a more accurate description would be repeated rumors and nonsense.
  8. This thread is eerily quiet.......kind of like crickets.....

    Ehhhh...I would say Parisi lost that one. He might have landed a lucky punch that drew some blood but Drobot landed about 10 more than Parisi.

    Probably would be "Good by Drobot"....I'm sure he appreciates the support.
  11. Or simply do a little research yourself using a thing called Google......it works really well!
  12. Believe it or not there are other jobs outside of coaching! I am trusting the new ownership made a good decision with the hiring of Esposito. If nothing else, it sounds like fans at the Crown will be entertained! That might be just what the doctor ordered in the military town.....
  13. ECHL News on Twitter had it today....Thompson was waived today by Norfolk.
  14. I don't think the goalies are the problem. I think the defense is the problem....we are giving up too many Grade A chances.
  15. It's too easy when it comes to puckcounter.....I think they hold the record for most posts that need translating due to sorry spelling and grammar....
  16. I don't blame Trudel one bit for reporting it to the league...he had just got beat 2 straight games by the Ice Flyers and it is a rule that is put in place to be followed, not broken.
  17. It's a software issue specific to the computer used at the Crown by the off-ice stat crew that they are working to get fixed.....
  18. Both Matt Zenzola and Peter Di Salvo were released from their ECHL training camps so we should have both goalies in training camp it seems.
  19. Read it in an article by a guy who covers the Americans. Also, Lamacchia and Robertson both cut today by ECHL teams. ECHL transactions for today were just released about 15 minutes ago.....
  20. Here is a link to the interview article with the new Marksmen head coach! A Sit Down with New Fayetteville Marksmen Head Coach Nick Mazzolini
  21. Former SPHL Goalie Scott Darling New # 1 for Canes
  22. I am thinking Bonar doesn't make the team in Fort Wayne and will most likely end up in Pensacola as the starting netminder for the Ice Flyers. Another ECHL team could potentially scoop him up off waivers but I still say he is in the net for the Ice Flyers come opening night.
  23. The article made it clear that Houser was going to be the starting goalie come opening night so he isn't included in the battle per se.....If I were a betting man, I would say Bartus has the edge out of just sheer familiarity Graham has with him and what he did in Fort Wayne last season.
