  1. UHL Returns For 2017\18 Season

    That's the same logo the UHL was using when they switched to the IHL name.
  2. Rosters at this point are far from set. Don't put too much stock into what is and isn't announced.
  3. That I can not answer. Sometimes their system does that when entering future teams onto a player's profile. Below is the tweet they cite as a source and when you hover over the info icon, it says "For 18/19"
  4. This is for 2018-19. I'm not sure what Frenchie is doing this season but as of right now, his commitment to U of Moncton is for next season. Regarding the use of the word, "veteran": Bes doesn't write these releases. The guy who does is probably used to the NHL definition of "veteran" being someone who's experienced.
  5. FHL's Future Unclear?

    I'm sure the FHL loves their only southern team saying, "we're just doing this to get an SPHL team." lol
  6. Tallahassee - no suitable arena due to lack of available dates Mobile - not suitable arena NOLA - no suitable arena due to issues at other buildings and the Bensons' lack of willingness to share the Smoothie King Center Baton Rouge - honestly don't know enough about the current state of affairs there
  7. Lol, that's not the interior under construction. Right now the Gardens are used mostly as a large storage unit. I'd love for it to happen (and it will if I hit the Power Ball) but it is definitely not happening right now.
  8. Two More Signings

    And this is precisely why you don't make major announcements on a Friday unless you intentionally want it lost in the weekend news cycle.
  9. If true, I'll apologize for my inaccuracy but I trust my source.
  10. After writhing around on the ice in the Hangar and having them call for a stretcher when all he had was an ankle sprain, Tateson will never be signed by the Ice Flyers. I'd be willing to put money on it.
  11. Standard practice. Release the names over time to keep the team in the news.
  12. Truth be told, when I read the title that was the first name that popped into my head.
  13. Kalisz Traded

    He most definitely would have and did give the team a heads up. It wasn't necessarily a better job he left for. It was Edmonton wanting him to fulfill the second year of his contract he has with them.
  14. It was/is a German team. Dresdner Ice Pilots The GM at the time used to post on the old Pensacola fan board The Five Hole as El Presidente.
  15. Kalisz Traded

    Use a little logic: Pensacola didn't know whether or not Aldoff would return for 2017-18. Aldoff was attempting to complete trades, setting the protected the list, and recruiting as though he would continue to coach in Pensacola. As far as Greg Harris and the Ice Flyers knew, there was a possibility Aldoff would still be here they were not already negotiating with any new coaching candidates. Also, if there was backdoor dealing: 1) why did it take nearly two weeks to announce Bes as the coach after Rod's departure was announced (ex. when Rod was fired in Norfolk, his replacement was announced immediately); and 2) in order to get his best players to Pensacola, why not trade Thompson to Pensacola?
