  1. While your first proposal is interesting, it would never happen in the SPHL without baking in some sort of financial compensation from the top seed(s). Example: There's no way anyone agrees to let Peoria stay home all playoffs without getting some hotel rooms paid for by the Rivermen. The ladder intrigues me more and seems verrrry doable in the SPHL re: ice availability. Give those top seeds ample time to plan two rounds of ice, and the lower teams just have to worry about maybe one matchup at a time.
  2. The AHL has their most geographically isolated division (which also has one less team) play fewer games, and top four in each division make the bracket. Points percentage only matters for home-ice after the divisional rounds. Also, the FPHL has at least one instance of 4 games in 4 nights, which is just nuts: TWEET
  3. Yeah, no. Don't congratulate them for making a "balanced" schedule that's also unbalanced in the simplest way possible. While it's nice that they don't have their version of PEO and QC playing each other 28 times, giving some teams more chances to gain standings points is the bushiest of bush league.
  4. So when did the FHL change its name to the Federal Prospects Hockey League (FPHL)? It's kind of flipped on their league site, but not on social, the backdrop Columbus used in their press conference, etc. And is there a reason they aren't called the Fed. Professional HL? The River Dragons' logo is pretty good. I love the colors, even if they're ripped straight from the Arizona D-backs. Apart from the black numbers on the dark sweater, the jerseys are solid. The name is very bad and very dumb. Congrats to Columbus on getting a team back in that barn. And I like the move of making Bechard VP of Community Outreach.
  5. Let's say that Charles Barkley and the most French man in Mississippi are actually in talks with arenas and/or the league. There is a zero percent chance that Maddox Foundation is involved.
  6. It's weird, but I really don't see how it's a bad thing. And if it's what some players feel they need to get going at the start of a game, more power to them.
  7. He also did the logos for the Ice Flyers, Havoc, and (I think) Ice Bears. Dude was definitely prolific. RIP
  8. And I was told MRK had too many ice logos last year... But hey, get that money.
  9. Well, kudos for painting the logos instead of getting them printed like most teams. That Mountain Dew spot especially must be a pain... I think I read the Blackhawks are the only NHL team that still paints their center ice logo, and theirs is one of the more complicated marks.
  10. Kudos to Dave for not even bothering to hide his anti-Southern feelings...
  11. Happy Birthday YELDARBfield!

  12. It was really nice of Getty Images to let them do that! https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/illustration/tornado-mascot-royalty-free-illustration/165591125?irgwc=1&esource=AFF_GI_IR_VigLink_27795&asid=VigLink&cid=GI
  13. My point is, they bothered to put the "TM" but were too lazy to create an original logo. In my mind, there's a zero percent chance they legally trademarked that logo.
  14. @JMC-STL We can only hope! Otherwise, the branding in this league is becoming just embarrassing...
