  1. We just got passed in the standings by an expansion team led in scoring by two of Bremner's biggest player moves. Moved Mueller and Bauer last season for Porter who is now coaching in a weak junior league and playing senior league in Canada. At least he got Bauer back. Mueller now leads the Storm in scoring. Great trade! Moved Bronner for nothing. How many majors did Bronner take? Great trade! Zach Tatrn has 5 points in 8 games with Fayetteville. There is plenty of skill on this team, but even the best manager has to coach once in a while. How much you want to bet we see more great trades?
  2. Porter was no faster, top speed, than Mueller. Mueller has a much better shot. Mueller better defensively with his background as a D. Last I heard, Mueller will start the season in the EC just like last year. My info line has been dark for a month or so, but he'll stay in the EC. Looks like I get to close the office. See ya boys.
  3. I'm confused. Why would a coach trade a D causing a shortage to his D corp, trade a capable fan favorite forward, disrupt his locker room for a player the fans loved to hate and didn't fit? Oh and Porter retired a month ago, long before this list was released.
  4. And how did Porter " fit what Bremner was wanting to do with this team."? Bauer is a D, he was replaced by a couple of temporary guys. Mueller went to a crap team with a fake temporary coach and put up a goal, 2 assists and 16 pims while Porter went to a team on the rise, played 16 games put up 1 goal and 3 assists with 11 pims. Don't forget that both Bauer and Mueller were great locker room guys and Mueller was a fan favorite. So tell me how Porter fit what Bremner blah, blah blah.
  5. So that big deadline trade Mueller/Bauer for Porter was just.....awesome!
  6. I know why Mueller was put on suspension, why Kravtchouk and Dallaire?
  7. It's not just a lack of talent, there's little to no drive. I've just heard some things about the coach and I just wonder how much is true. I know an ACHA coach who told me some whoppers about this guy. I'm chuckling as I write.
  8. Do you really think your interim coach really has a clue of what he's doing? Maybe he didn't want too much negativity, I've heard that's important to him. Someone showed me a video of a power skate video for a practice......in March....with 5 games left in the season. just askin
  9. I have no disagreement with that. As a fan, I enjoy my beer with a win. All I'm saying is that I think his method is more management and less coaching. I was asked something last week, why are there coaches that don't coach and just shuffle players. The answer is simple, coaching is tough, shuffling is easy and a lot quicker.
  10. I bet that went over big in a locker room full of guys with nothing but pride to play for.
  11. Face it, he's got zero experience as a coach. I think he's following his mentor from Peoria and managing players instead of coaching. Players that don't fit what he needs for the immediate crises will be dumped. He won't be well liked by players, but he'll win games. Just my opinion.
  12. Tax season and hockey keep me off of here. Anyone ever feel like Bremner outsmarts himself now and then? Not tonight!
  13. Funny who you run into at dinner on a Friday night in Roanoke. Robard, I think the answer to your question is no one here really knows. I did hear some funny stories. Nothing bad about the city. Nothing bad about the organization. Sounds like the fans treated him well. I see the video of that coach has been taken down. Now I gotta get back to the Dawgs. 2:30 to go.
  14. Holy cow, Tatrn is back and Babenko waived.
