  1. I keep telling myself that bad hockey is better than no hockey. I have faith in the ownership to learn from this season and build a better product for next season. They are hockey guys and want to win as much as we do.
  2. I would also protect the guys we have playing in the ECHL. Next season they may or may not make a roster spot. If they do, we own thier rights if they get waived. Coach should contact them to see what thier plans are for next season to see if they are planning on playing or retiring. The big mistake we made before agreeing to a trade with Bes in Pcola. Those guys were not planning on returning to the SPHL. We will probably loose Tayler Thompson. He has to had to sign and play at least one game this season to be protected.
  3. That's the beer talking. Not Fred
  4. Great game team! Definitely a positive move forward. Let's see how they fare with Macon who has been a thorn in Fayetteville's side for several seasons.
  5. Basic job description, put a good product on ice, butts in the seat and ink as many STH/sponsors as possible. Easy!
  6. I've heard they had some good inquiries. One, a former bench boss.
  7. This guy is available? Ok numbers last season but could be better in SPHL. Coach should be watching the ECHL transitions. http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=46007 instead he's,
  8. The players we decide to protect needs to join theAIHL for the off season to work on thier skills. Except Jake of course.
  9. How about the players in the ECHL? They may or may not make a roster spot which we will have the rights.
  10. I just hope that Jake decides to return next season and not retire. He's the glue that holds this team together. Off season, I'll be watching to see what moves ownership takes to improve the team starting with the player protected list.
  11. I know it will never happen but, they need someone with experience to run hockey ops. Kevin under new ownership could make it happen. He is better at team operations than running/owning a team. He was the all time points leader in Europe lol. He brought in Mark DeSantis as coach and this ownership turned him down for a second chance in the SPHL.
  12. Maybe ownership needs to consider bringing back Kevin to run hockey Ops. He may not do well with putting butts in the seat but, he knows hockey and has brought in good talent in the past.
  13. I bet it will be this year before next season.
  14. The upper leagues uses that term more than the SPHL. An ATO is for rookies/amateurs who has never played a pro game.
  15. What theme did the Dawgs have after a 10-0 butt kicking contest by Knoxville? It might work for the Marksmen
  16. Sean will spend a lot of time in the ECHL. He will be in E camp next season and probably will make a roster. Might be a good move for the coach. The goal is to find skaters who are boarder line E talent. The last 2 coaches were recruiting boarder line SPHL skaters from the FHL. Good move coach!
  17. We don't know what's behind the firing of Phil. I'm sure ownership received input from the Senoir players. Maybe ownership seen how productive Roanoke was with thier young coach. I know our 1st coach Mazz was young but made some questionable trades.
  18. They're going probably ride this coach for what's left of the season and regroup off season to see what moves need to be made. Though lesson for the new ownership. I'm sure they will work hard off season on putting a better team on ice next season.
  19. See what happens when our team Sucks,
  20. I won't mention my source but the players had a lot of input to his dismissal. It will happen in Pcola also unless he has changed his coaching style. Do you remember Matt Robertson of the antz? He refused to return after Bes was hired and played in the FHL. How many of our players from last season fled to Europe? If they knew Bes was leaving, they would have stayed. By the time they found out, they were already under contract.
  21. There's more to the story with him leaving. Why do you think some of our best players fled to Europe to play verses staying in Fayetteville?
  22. Well, here in Fayetteville anything will work for us. We can't get any worse. If this coach can pull this team together and win some games, he might be back next season.
