  1. TheSinBin has posted a breakdown of the Thunderbolts schedule along with several thoughts from coach Jeff Pyle. http://thesinbin.net/evansville-thunderbolts-2017-18-schedule-preview/
  2. @courierpress Lot of Tom+Chee franchises closing. I don't think their expensive versions of inexpensive food in sma… https://t.co/OjYECRpM7W

  3. Glad to see the NYE Firework show is back. I was impressed by how much they were able to do with the Icemen a couple years ago.
  4. Everyone is always so anti-cancer all the time; it's nice to see someone giving tribute to the humble disease that afflicts so many.
  5. You and me both. He was a proven scorer at both the ECHL and SPHL levels. Hopefully he's enjoying his 27th birthday today, and you can't help but wonder if they plays a factor. It is roughly the average age when these guys hang it up.
  6. Good interview. I'm hopeful that with a slightly better roster then can go from occasionally to regularly competitive. The wins will come when you stay in games.
  7. Didn't expect this thread to be so popular . Basically, yes.
  8. Evansville's Thunderbolts announced the signing of two rookie defensemen this week. http://evansvillethunderbolts.com/view/evansville/news-1/news_492383
  9. Pete Xander - formerly Butler University's manager of ticket and fan development. X going give it to us? http://evansvillethunderbolts.com/view/evansville/news-1/news_492151
  10. Bolts announced the signing of 3 rookie forwards to training camp roster: http://evansvillethunderbolts.com/view/evansville/news-1/news_491884
  11. Do you really think they lose millions though? It's not as if they wouldn't play those games another time, so the only real loss is the difference in the potential "lull" time bump versus playing in a busier sports atmosphere.
  12. I'm skeptical that the "lull" in other major sports affords them any significant increase to profits, but the injury concern is legitimate. I think the problem is the normal shortsightedness we see from executives when an immediate profit isn't apparent. The Olympics are the ultimate promotional tool. People who don't watch sports normally will tune in to see their countries play, and that gives you a chance to inspire both new, young players and get exposure to potential, new fans. That should be a top concern since it's well documented that they're rapidly aging (https://sports.vice.com/en_us/article/zme3m8/the-nhl-is-old-af).
  13. You are correct. As for his rights, my understanding is they no longer have them. I don't believe they made him a qualifying offer even.
  14. Those places paled in comparison to those epic 2 games in Toledo though...
