  1. Don't know whether to "like", "thank", or use the "haha" symbol regarding your post above. Doc
  2. Please see previous threads regarding reporting of injuries/illnesses. Unless the player or team official makes it known voluntarily, it's a private matter and a HIPAA violation to release a medical condition. Fans don't need to know if, for example, a player specifically has a knee injury, and certainly the other team will take advantage of that situation if the player were to suit up for a game. That's why leagues report "lower body injury", "upper body injury", etc- nothing specific. Doc
  3. Most of Keith's family are Auburn fans. I'm sure they would have re-scheduled the game time if Auburn (or Tennessee) were in the playoffs. Doc
  4. Sorry, doesn't work that way. Per conversation with Havoc staff, the TEAM (not just the individual) has to play a man (or men, if multiple suspensions) short even if the guy (or guys) isn't (aren't) on the team roster during the length of the suspension. Doc
  5. You'll get a second chance to see the wiener dogs on Feb 23, 2019, when the promo is the 9th Annual Havoc Wiener Dog Races.
  6. Talked with a couple of off-ice officials before tonight's game. FYI- it's considered a shot on goal if the puck would go into the net if the goalie was not there. Even if the goalie makes a glove catch outside of the goal mouth, or a puck is even 1 millimeter wide of the net or over the crossbar, there would be no score, thus no SOG. So what may look like tons of shots TOWARDS the net aren't considered shots on goal. And, at least in the VBC, there are spotters throughout the arena to aid in determining who gets goals and assists (they said the ref usually says who gets credit for the goal, but corrections can and are made at times, both regarding the goal scorer and the helpers). Doc
  7. Wow! A heavy-duty "powerful" dose () of non-contributing posters shaming!
  8. I have to agree with PO on this one . Example- Andrew Tessier was in Huntsville less than 36 hours- came down from the ECHL, arrived in Huntsville Monday night, I did his physical Tuesday AM, and he was recalled back up that very night. Even those on a team's roster at the end of camp may or may not stick with that team during the regular season. Doc
  9. Billy Welker, the Havoc EM, has been with the team for 7 years, going on his 8th now- rock solid guy- got Ray connected with Jesse. Doc
  10. Having been associated with y'all's new coach, Jesse Kallechy, when he was a player and an Assistant Coach here in Huntsville, I don't believe he would hire a someone who is an incompetent doofus nincompoop as his Equipment Manager. Doc
  11. Happy Birthday hockeydoc!

  12. Let me tell you that I don't intentionally disseminate false information (or to use the current lexicon, "fake news"). As I posted in another thread, I am in no way a spokesman for the Havoc (or the SPHL for that matter), but when someone on the Havoc staff tell me something, I consider that information pretty reliable, especially in this particular discussion of the vet rule. At the risk of supporting P.O., all 9 other teams in the league played by the same 900-game limit last season. There was absolutely no reason for the Havoc to have 3 vets on the roster with only a cap of 900 total games while the rest of the teams could have vets with more experience on their rosters. Doc
