  1. Wow! A heavy-duty "powerful" dose () of non-contributing posters shaming!
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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

  7. Thanks. Just curious as to what you edited in or out before re-posting. Doc
  8. Go back to the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs "Protected List Thoughts" started on 5/30/18, which you posted in, so I do think you've seen this before: Marksmen3519 Marksmen Moderator Forum Moderator 682 3,499 posts Posted June 1 I still havent seen any "Official" release that "Vet GP" has dropped to 900. Asked the Sin Bin and they said they havent seen a change either. Quote MacGuy Senior Moderator Senior Moderator 1,012 9,374 posts Posted June 1 Drop a note to the league and see if they give you an answer. Quote hockeydoc 119 214 posts Posted June 5 There was no "official release" and it's not in the SPHL rule book. See my post on 5/15/18. So unless the Havoc coaches/staff are stupid and don't know the league policy, or they are content with having "veterans" with less total game experience than other teams' "veterans" in the league (neither of which I believe is true), consider the limit a total of 900 games. Doc
  9. Just stated a fact over 2 months ago. Thanks for the applause- (or are the clapping hands just ?) Doc
  10. Thanks for confirming what I posted over 2 months ago: Posted May 15 Per Havoc staff, there was a limit of 900 games combined played by "veterans" this past season, and it won't drop this upcoming season. FYI, a "veteran" is a player who has played 224 pro games. Doc Doc
  11. Still get a great laugh from this one- probably the funniest Havoc ad ever! Doc
  12. The power of Facebook, Tumblr, etc is frightening. On a recent trip to Alberta, as soon as we stepped off the plane Facebook welcomed my wife to Canada, and she wasn't even logged on to Facebook. She also looked at some airbnb listings in Louisville, KY (where our son lives) and both gave recommendations (she wasn't even logged onto airbnb, just used the links supplied by our son, much less wasn't logged onto Facebook or Tumblr at the time either). Info sharing among these juggernauts is scary, which is why I'm not on any social media (except these forums). Doc
  13. As a retired Air Force Reservist, I'll drink to that! . Doc
  14. Oly and Clew also played in Huntsville and were well-liked by the fans here, too. Doc
  15. Thanks for your support (I guess). Doc

  17. Having been a team doc since 1997, starting with the Channel Cats, then the Tornado, then the Channel Cats again, and now the Havoc, let me shed some light on this. The CHL CC's folded and didn't have a team in 2001 (I guess fortunately for me since I was called up by the Air Force Reserves after 9/11 and was not able to be in Huntsville that season). John Cherney bought the franchise and renamed it the Tornado for the 2002-3 season. That name didn't stick well with Huntsville/Madison County residents as the area had (and has) been hit hard with tornadoes, so the CC name was revived for the 2003-4 season. When Keith Jeffries bought the franchise from Mr Cherney, the CC name was not allowed to continue. In fact, even banners of CC championships and retired numbers of CC players were removed from the VBC. I don't know all the politics of "The Columbus folks weren't comfortable with thew Channel Cats owner running the show. so they did a bit of a coupe, along with Knoxville, Fayetteville, and some of the WHA-2 franchises..." so I won't comment on that statement. Doc
  18. Per Havoc staff, there was a limit of 900 games combined played by "veterans" this past season, and it won't drop this upcoming season. FYI, a "veteran" is a player who has played 224 pro games. Doc
  19. How many IBs are still in town? Most of the Havoc players have already left for their homes. Doc
  20. My hockey income is $0- all volunteer. Ooooohhh noooooooo, Mr Bill, please not "The Perfesser". Government CMS and insurances set the fees paid- I'm stuck. Doc
  21. Y'all need help, but it won't come cheap- Doc
  22. Havoc would have won after the 2 games anyway under this format- though even number of goals (8 in aggregate- 6-5 Havoc at Peoria, 3-2 Rivermen at Huntsville), Havoc had more "away" goals- 6-3. Doc
  23. Sorry, I don't do telemedicine; I only treat ER patients and the Havoc team. Plus, many of those kinds of meds are OTC. Doc
  24. They will be there Wednesday, and if necessary, on Sunday. Doc
  25. Goalies just have to be on the roster for 5 games to be eligible for the playoffs- even being the back-up counts. Sakellaropoulos played (and won) on 1/6/18 and was b-u on 1/5/18 and 1/9/18 before his call-up. Thus, he needs to be listed on the roster for just 2 more games of Pensacola's remaining regular season schedule. He wasn't listed on poinstreak tonight, but Pensy didn't have a b-u goalie listed on the game sheet (as of yet, but neither did Macon) and Pensy still has 2 regular season games to go, so I'm guessing that Mr S will be eligible (I don't think Coach Bes would do something really stupid like not having an eligible b-u goalie).
