  1. 2018-19 Season Expansion News?

    I think they're a natural fit...well, naturally became a fit when the SPHL added Peoria and Evansville. 4-year ECHL average attendance would put them in the top 3 of the SPHL (3,878) 4-year CHL average attendance would put them in the top 5/6 of the SPHL this year (3,278) Whatever the IHL was, they averaged 4,067 that one year so they would be in second this year (4,067) It's a successful area that has had minor league hockey for a long time. I think it's a comparable market to other SPHL markets.
  2. SPHL Attendance

    Both of those teams were in the top 3 of attendance well before January & February, so I'm not sure their good attendance numbers have anything to do with having home games in January and February.
  3. Potential Expansion

    I think the owners want less travel so their margins are better. Unless these owners own teams in multiple leagues; I doubt they'd be keen on adding teams much further away than what exists now.
  4. Potential Expansion

    One city I never seem to hear about when expansion is discussed is Chattanooga, TN. Have they ever had a hockey team? The Mackenzie Arena is a good-sized venue in downtown. I know they have a number of minor league teams that share leagues with SPHL-cities. I think they'd fit in pretty well; their metro is just larger than the majority of the cities in our league. It would make for a pretty dense mid-section of the league which could assist with overall travel costs. Huntsville (2hrs), Knoxville (2hrs), Birmingham (2.5hrs), and Macon (3hrs) are really close.
  5. Arena Update

    Looking good, Bulls! Can't wait to attend a HSV vs. BHAM game; going to be a pretty hyped environment.
  6. Huntsville Exhibition Games

    MRK's bus broke down so they're not going to be able to make it. The game is canceled, but the Havoc are still going to have an intrasquad scrimmage and maybe a skills competition. Free admission.
  7. Looks like they have spaces for them within the rendering, just not actually part of the rendering. Those spaces do look like a tight squeeze for the benches though.
  8. Name Mascot Contest

    Guys, we're in the South. The fox needs a good, christian name; "Mark".
  9. Jersey Reveal

    I like the white ones best too, but the black looks good as well. I'm a big fan of the logo too.
  10. Kudos to Knoxville

    I would agree with that...but if you're a Predators fan (or a southern hockey fan) you've gotta find a silver lining somewhere, right?
  11. "NBC Sports PR‏ @NBCSportsPR Top 5 markets for last night's Gm 2: 1. Pittsburgh (31.1); 2. Nashville (16.3); 3. Buffalo (8.7); 4. Philadelphia (4.4); 5. Knoxville (4.3)" Way to go Knoxville hockey fans, top 5 (for 62 or 63 market in the US) is awesome. Are the city or Ice Bears doing any watch parties? I think I saw one in Clarksville in a city square with a good crowd.
  12. I wouldn't know. We've never been in the same room at the same time. I've been told we could be twins, though.
  13. Do they sell alcohol at the the Pelham Civic Center? Asking for a friend.

    My wife and I were planning on going to the playoff games, but with them being at the IcePlex, I'm not sure she'll want to go. Disappointing anyway, but especially with the record breaking attendance they've had this year. Does "the rest of the playoffs" include the championship series, if they make it that far?
  15. Return of the Bulls?

    Wouldn't be the most luxurious venue in the league...but if it's a stepping stone to the BJCC, I think it's a good idea. I'm not sure where room would be to add a thousand more seats but maybe that plan will include renovation of current seats. Attendance numbers from their latest stint are above average for the SPHL (save for whatever happened in 2000-01).
