  1. Yup, Brian Rowland. Wasn't expecting him to get first goal of the season.
  2. You can listen to it on mixlr. But no telecast to watch it. Link is in the GDT if you need it.
  3. Well due to technical difficulties Fayetteville not showing the game. What trash, every game you don't get to see is always in Fayetteville. SPHL Live charges you an arm and a leg and can't even watch opening game.
  4. Nice, looks like they screwed our Dawgs on that simulation. I will really be disappointed if it looks like that at the end of the year!
  5. Check out GDT/ or game day threads by MacGuy or whichever team yours is playing. I see the one they are playing Huntsville already up. Should have links to how to listen to them on the radio.
  6. Its that time of season again. We haven't had this much excitement about having a really good team yet, so far in Roanoke. But this year feels different with Coach Bremner putting together what looks to be a solid roster up and down. We possibly have the best lines of forwards in the league who have proven they can score in this league. Like returners Steve Mele, Colin Murray, and Eric Witzel to go a long with our newcomers Dillan Fox, Cody Dion, Jeff Jones, and Michael Economos just to name a few. We also should have no problem with our size and physicality we have seen in previous years. No team pushing us around. Only part of our team that is suspect on paper would be our young defense. But after losing the experience of veterans Joe Sova, Nick Schneider, and skills of Cam Bakker who is playing in the ECHL for South Carolina its only fair to go through some growing pains with our young defense who returns Brian Rowland, Ben Bauer, and Patrick Harrison as the only returners from last year with any experience in the SPHL. If our defense can hit the ground running, the sky is the limit for this team. Especially with returning Goaltender of the Year Brad Barone and a solid back up in Division 1 UCONN recruit Tanner Creel who played one shutout period of hockey in our preseason game. Overall I believe Coach Bremner has done an excellent job throwing together a roster of players he knows from his playing and coaching days. They also know exactly what he expects from them. Now onto the game. It will be game 1 of 13 against Fayetteville. 1 of 6 away games we play there. Fayetteville looks like a totally new team with new coach Jesse Kallechy and assistant Peter Worrell. They are a very young team with a few familiar faces like Jake Hauswirth, Jamie Hill, and Travis Jeke to name a few. Should be a fun first game and test for our Dawgs on Friday Night before returning home Saturday Night for a 7:05 pm et home opener against the Knoxville Ice Bears.

  7. Steve Mele and Cody Dion on Greg Roberts Live. I found this to be hilarious. Starts at around the 33 minute mark.
  8. Thats who i thought they should be until I heard they were all on the same line. Guess that doesn't matter. I totally agree with the picks.
  9. Yea, its all up in the air now since I heard sphl podcast. Campos called them the twin towers line. But said Dion, Mele, and Murray was all playing on the same line in practice. So after Mele as captain my next two picks are up in the air. Having a hard time thinking Rowland might be an A with only 16 career SPHL games under his belt. I could be wrong though. If they look to defense, I could see Bauer who has the most experience in the league. Or maybe O'Brien. He has played in top league in Sweden and two years in the FHL and won a championship last year. All depends if experience has anything to do with the captains and alternates.
  10. I pretty much agree with their assessments, other then being middle of the pack. I think we have a good shot of atleast getting home advantage first round playoffs. If our defense can come together quickly and stay away from the ECHL dismantling of the team, I think the sky is the limit.
  11. Brian Gardner said he was doing a new thing this year with Sponsor Haley Toyota and driving around asking them interview like questions. Said he had taped the first one with Steve Mele. This is the first year since our opening season that our roster overhaul is huge. Got a lot of new guys nobody knows anything about.
