  1. I feel your pain on this one....
  2. That is extremely well written... and a hell of a story. Im with Roanokehockey on this one.
  3. Thank you for the clarification. Much appreciated!
  4. Good to hear. Initially with the Gators he was a force on the ice, but I am assuming a drop in team morale lead to him being mediocre at best on the ice and not playing to his full potential. I knew he had more in him, everyone saw it. Glad hes getting back in the groove.
  5. I always liked Hietela. I found he had more impact on the ice then his stats showed and always had a hell of a lot of heart.
  6. Glad to see Drobot and Hauswirth on protected list. Is Hausworth playing better with the Antz/ Marksmen? When he was with the Gators he dropped off quickly. I think there were some morale issues. Just curious on how he showed.
  7. It seems unfortunate but part of the ESPN ongoing issues correct? Unless im reading into it wrong.
  8. Agreed. It seems to me that they did not have the best management who could put butts in seats. Doesn't help that every time they had a pack the stadium event they had thousands of people and got blown out badly. That really hurts getting people to come back...
  9. Im sure someone more knowledgeable than me can chime in but they didn't renew the lease on the office building, are not under contract with the Cajundome, and from what I hear, the owners gave up on it. Barring an influx of interest and new ownership, im not holding out much hope for it.
  10. You know, ive actually been saying the same thing. New owners could revitalize it. But they would need to make some sweeping changes.
  11. I don't think the Icegators are returning unless someone steps up and brings them back, in another location. Simply put, the Cajundome is entirely too expensive for a team drawing 13-1400 per game. Blackham was much better, the issue was scheduling and the selling of the chiller system when the Gators swapped to the dome. If you look at possible venues, the only 2 are the Cajundome and Blackham. I personally loved Blackham due to the homely atmosphere and true "beer league" feel. I know the director of the Cajundome and I can tell you, he wont be making any deals with a hockey team to bring them back. If you ask me, he is happier with the dome empty as that is less work he has to do. Just my ten cents.. and yes, im still hanging around here... Still love the SPHL and miss it, and will be here until someone kicks me out.
  12. They got Daniels. Good move there.
  13. Beer specials on gameday???? Now this is a place I want to visit....
  14. :). Much appreciated. The drive is quite long though...sigh. And shopping? More importantly, where is the closest beer? Is it cold? And is it decent? Just wondering
  15. Smart move, he seems to have a good head on his shoulders.
