  1. Wish him the best of luck. With all the talent filtering down by the AHL and D-1 colleges it's going to be tough. FW has 3 goalies on their roster one being a 6-3 rookie.
  2. I've always told the last owners it would be better to put a butt in a seat for $5.00 than 10-15 bucks and no butts.
  3. This is a good test to see who stays or gets replaced.
  4. Well, Chris Porter and Sean Bonar is not signed to an ECHL or European team and wondering what's up. Are they sitting out the season?
  5. We've slowed up on the weekly signings. We still have a couple from the protected list. :(
  6. I agree with everything you ar saying WLGT. I've also have met the owners over a couple beers at a swamp dog's game. They will improve the attendance. They've already added cameras and show replays on the marquee. With Jeff Longo and his experience in the hockey world, I see good things in the furture for our Marksmen. I'm looking forward to hockey.
  7. Bloomington Thunder rebranding

    JMC and the Rivermen will always be part of the SPHL family.
  8. Bloomington Thunder rebranding

    I'm ok with Peoria leaving the SPHL. It's going cut travel cost for other teams.
  9. Some of them who are the top five in SPHL will have to compete with much better talent and won't get the playing time.
  10. toughness

    The game of hockey has changed to include the NHL. We don't see as many fights like the old days. We have enforcers when needed that can actually play a position. It's about scoring goals. I'm ready for some hockey.
  11. No matter what the talent was in those leagues we know he can play and coach along with our vets will have to groom him for the SPHL. Look at Tayler Thompson, he had great stats but never got picked up by the ECHL.
  12. A lot of those players spent the peak of their careers in the SPHL before dropping to the FHL. There's some good talent in the FHL and trying to stay positive with all the FHL pickups.
  13. Does anyone know when camp will start?
  14. I doubt that either will return during the season. Long way to travel and costly. We would lose the rights of both if they returned next season to the SPHL.
  15. Good trade I guess if I knew who we gave up? Bonar? Ok, just checked your updated roster. Green. Great trade! Just hope our net minders doesn't get called up the same time.
  16. I might be wrong but I think he's saying that Nagle is playing for the AHL Grand Rapids and if he drops down, he will be playing with ECHL Toledo Walleyes who is affiliated with GR. Does Fort Wayne lose the rights to Nagle?
  17. Marky Mark and the Funky bunch. I still voted for Sniper.
  18. toughness

    We had toughness last season. No one really messed with our guys. I'm sure we will be the same this season.
  19. Shane is not only a good offensive weapon but a good scraper also. Watched a video of him taking on a bigger player and took care of business.
  20. Joe scores 4 goals for the AIHL Northstars. http://www.theaihl.com/leagues/newsletterarchive.cfm?clientid=3856&leagueid=11464&page=100753 Hope to see him back with the Marksmen. He does not have an active contract in Europe at this time.
  21. He's running out of time signing with a European team which starts their season in August. There's a reason why we had so many jump to Europe. I know some of them for the experience but, Seems wierd to me. The coach is contacting all the players so hope he can draw him back.
  22. Don't forget about Fort Bragg which starts with the letter F.
  23. What to see if he makes through the Wheeler's camp. He may be back in Roanoke before the season starts.
