  1. Awesome pickup for you guys! MRK fans will miss him but I can't wait to see him back on the ice in the SPHL.
  2. I'm a MRK fan and would like to join if it's not too late. mrswynn22@yahoo.com
  3. Were there any Stars of the game announced? It's not showing on Pointstreak.
  4. I see that Knoxville, Peoria, and Fayettevile have released their Protected List. Any news on when ours will be released?
  5. Really? I don't really remember much about him from last season. The only thing I remember is he and McGill combined would always take cheap shots at our guys when the refs weren't looking. I'm still waiting to see who will be our enforcer's/bruiser's on the ice that Landmesser promisied us from last season.
  6. Hello to all you Ice Bear Fans! I just wanted to say congrats to you championship win! I'm one of the MRK fans that came to the game on last night and just wanted to say a big thank you to your organization and fans for all the kindness, hospitality and overall experience that was shown to us. I meet some wonderful Ice Bear fans ( thanks Brian for all the fun he provided sitting next to us and treating us to our own Ice Bears souvenir cup) in our section ( G lower level) and around us and the crowd participation was just amazing. And a special thanks to MacGuy for all the great information he was able to provide to me (and it was great to see you as well) to ensure that my family and I had a wonderful time in the city as well as at the game.This was my family's first away game to Knoxville and it was truly an awesome experience. Thank you so much for making this RiverKing fan feel welcomed! See yall next year :-)
  7. So proud to see that #35 Peter 'The Mad Dog' Di Salvo ranked #1 after tonights game! Hope Courchaine is ok after tonights bang up and so proud to see the guys pull off some big wins thus far this weekend!
  8. Glad to see that our goalie Adam Courchaine recieved player of the week!
  9. Looks like we lost Warner. He was a good guy on and off the ice. Wish he would have seen a little more ice time near the end and fully come into his own.
  10. He was! And it's aimed straight for the #1 spot
  11. Congrats on your win Havoc! Awesome job and what a blowout!!
  12. I saw on the transactions that we acquired Matthew Beer (our new #89). Can't wait to see what he brings to the team and which lines Landmesser puts him on.
  13. Thanks for sharing! I've sent a request to join the group :-)
  14. Just a few things: 1.) I never saw Di Salvo's post. 2.) I know exaclty who makes these decisions. I never said nor assumed that this forum (which allows hockey fans like myself to comment on anything hockey related and to simply share information) had anything to do with the decision. 3.) I agree, recognition is earned and not demanded and if you check the stats and records from the games Di Salvo played against Strang, not only did he shut him out, but Strang was also pulled out of the game. 4.) Strang has always ranked in the top 3 for goalie leaders ( like I said, he's one hell of a goalie) yet Di Salvo worked his way from #7 to #3 in the month of February which is one hell of a feat. I never said that our goalie deserved to be player of the month. I simply stated that if the SPHL is going to pick the player, it should be based on his stats for that month and not his overall career.
  15. I've heard rumors today that he's coming back. Nothing on the Transactions yet though. I'm a little torn as I would love to see Matt back in the turtle green but would really to watch further advance in the ECHL.
  16. I know some are not going to like this post and I will NOT come back to defend my statement as I stand on every word I'm about to say. The purpose of player of the month is for the accomplishments that the player has made for that specific month, not his career overall and that is exactly what was done here. Yes, Strang is a hell of a goalie, but his stats and record was nothing to through a parade over for the month of February. Nothing. However, I shouldn't find this behavior from the SPHL too shocking. Especially when it comes to my home team of the Mississippi RiverKings. We were on a 9 game winning streak and you all didn't say anything to recognize that BUT other teams that were in losing streaks you mention and encourage that it is just a slump and they will come back. Not only do our players buss their butts on the ice (currently ranking #2 in the league with goalies ranking #3 and #5 not to mention we scored the fastest 5 second goal in league history in Feb) they work too hard to not get the recognition that they deserve. As a new hockey fan in the south, I find it very disheartening that you all treat this team with such disrespect and that you all blatantly over look the talent that this team has and possesses. With that being said, I will still continue to learn more about this sport that I'm growing to love more and more, continue to support these guys who come far from home to play and not look to YOU or any other forum to say/do what I already know: the Mississippi Riverkings are a kick ass team with kick ass support. ‪#‎GOKINGS‬ (BTW, not only did our goalies break other teams winning streaks they also help to CREATE winning streaks for the month of Feb)
