    Correct, but teams have "left overs" from the year before that do get used by lots of players, and yes they buy more equipment, however my point was it costs the owners a lot more money when the league changes equipment brands every year

    Jesus, this league switches equipment providers yearly, I know it's based on money, but it has to cost the teams quite a bit to keep switching gloves, sticks, equipment every year as opposed to using the same ones from year to year and just replacing some of it due to wear and tear, etc. Go back to Sherwood, they provided the league its sticks and gloves for several years and had good color schemes!
  3. Good luck to the new owners, I like the rebranding idea with new ownership they have a large population in that area at Fort Bragg, if they can appeal to even a small percentage of Military hockey fans, they may change things around for the city! Good luck
  4. That is a surprise, does Birmingham have a GM?
  5. I suspect if he coaches the Bulls, the Snakes will not be back in '18-19, just a hunch, but can't see him putting the needed effort into finding owners, negotiating with them and league during the season when he is coaching. I hope he doesn't bring all the players from Columbus, utilize the expansion draft, get fresh blood to play for JB and change what went wrong this year in Columbus!!
  6. Good for JB if he can make it work, a little surprised he wouldn't hold out a little longer in hopes to revive hockey in Columbus? Maybe no takers to buy the team? Sad day for hockey fans in Columbus if the Snakes fold, Civic center will sit empty all winter and I imagine the newly built rink next to it will have its share of problems as well, once the Snakes pull out I can see a scenario where the youth hockey isn't as promoted as it once was and interest starts to decline, Birmingham isn't that far, but still a god distance from Columbus. should be an interesting summer!
  7. After reading that article I thought he was setting himself up for failure, he is a talented goal scorer, but should never stated that as a goal for the season, he ain't that good! I followed him for the last few years, yes he can score in the FHL, but a lot of guys can, it just isn't that great of competition so success in that league doesn't automatically equate to success in the SPHL. I won't speculate as to what the suspension is for, I will wait until facts are known, I wish him and your team luck the rest of the way!
  8. You think management may trade him? I thought he was a key piece to your teams offense? is he not meshing with the team?
  9. So sad to hear this, thank god it wasn't worse
  10. must have been one heck of a conversation on Friday!!
  11. Yeah not a lot of drama this year, one thing that has helped is most of these teams now play in rec style rinks, so they fit about 1500 fans or so. instead of the bigger venues the league originally wanted for their teams. Cornwall was a good addition due to the number of players in that area that could help the team in terms of strength being the newest team on the league. The FHL keeps rolling along, can't believe it, but it's true.
  12. Good to see Gjurich get a few points, if he can catch fire he will really help your team. How has his play been this year besides point totals?
  13. I hope Roanoke has a successful first year, always root for the expansion team and success on ice and at the fox coffice. Hood luck tha rest of the way Dawgs!
  14. Shannon SzabadosVerifizierter Account ‏@ShannonSzabados 24. Nov. Back on the ice with @HockeyCanada this week!! Thanks for shooting @AWilligar https://instagram.com/p/BNNKZhrhihE/ Glad to see someone reads my posts!! Seriously, congrats Shannon, this is where you were meant to play, now go get another gold!!!
  15. I agree, one player won't save the league. Still think Shannon should play in it though, better option than sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring. I honestly think her only option at this point is the FHL. I have no idea why those salaries are so high for this league? Up to $26,000?? isn't that a lot more than players make in the SPHL? That is a crazy salary to make for a brand new 4 team league.
