  1. The ice is a full-size sheet, 200' by 85'. That 8,400 is including the upper bowl; it's closer to 5,300 with just the lower seating.
  2. Lukas was here for all of 14/15, beginning part of 15/16.
  3. FWIW: These designs will be revealed as the season goes on. IIRC, Military jersey will be released at Family Fest (date TBA).
  4. FWIW, there is zero green involved this season.
  5. Agreed. I've always hated when teams do the contrasting nameplate thing. It only looks good for Philly, and only because it has historical precedent. That UT orange always seems to catch light in strange ways. The first picture @MacGuy posted looks much better and more accurate. The font appears the same as what the Atlanta Thrashers wore, so I wouldn't ascribe any significance to the numbers' shape. Dead right about the busy-ness and stripes. It almost seems like the cut of the jersey (long/low shoulder yoke + shorter/scooped tail) makes it all look more cluttered. The huge white sponsor patch doesn't help things either. The Tri-Star is a nice touch, since they're the state's only SPHL team. Would've preferred a bespoke logo to fit the "Ice Bears" brand instead of a recolor, but at least there's some orange on this jersey other than the numbers. Obvious Preds references are obvious, though I can't say I blame them. IIRC, Knoxville had the 4th highest local ratings during the Stanley Cup Final this year, right behind the two cities playing and Buffalo. Strike while the iron is hot! This jersey set is a perfect example why contrasting nameplates are stupid. The back of the white jersey looks sooooo much cleaner without what's essentially a top stripe. However, those white numbers are a bad move. Should've gone orange on these as well, at least on the back. Plus that fixes the lack of orange.
  6. Stanley Cup Finals - Who's going to win?

    Sorry, working for makes that a force of habit.

    *GOLD. Preds in 6. @TwistedBrass FWIW, the city is hosting some pretty awesome watch parties on Broadway and in the Music Walk Park. Pre-game concerts and whatnot. I'm tempted to go up if they're within clinching for Game 6, just for the massive party.

    Sorry, been away from the boards for the weekend. Please note the date on that Instagram post...

    This employee of the Mississippi RiverKings Hockey Club says it's a sure sign. Blind speculation helps no one.

    You're looking for the phrase "sure sign," in this particular case.
  11. By my count, Macon's magic number to clinch 1st Place is 14 points. Macon and Huntsville play each other 4 more times this season, with 3 of the games in Huntsville. (Home games are BOLD CAPS.)
  12. I guess that's true. I just got caught up with possible points and knew RKE held the head-to-head tiebreaker against MRK.
