  1. Thats what I heard too. Guess what official it was to? Eric Krasnichuk. Thats probably the reason they only gave him 1 game instead of 3. Pretty dumb move though in my opinion. Happened in the last 10 seconds of the game and the player who done it, his team was up by two goals.
  2. I forgot to answer part of your question. I don't think it would it would be a conspiracy since the league gives you the option to pick who you're going to be playing in the first place. It might be unfair to some people but its their choice one way or the other which team they pick. I wouldn't see it as illegal but i'm sure if many found out it happened there might be a lot of heat about it.
  3. That could be true. Either way even if he still takes call ups there is no way he would get rid of Barone even with a little chance to keep him. The guys played well in front of him in both games he was back. Just not smart carrying an extra goalie as the extra man on your roster. Way too many call ups and injuries can happen. We kept 3 this weekend and had to play a player short each game because Guyon is scratched and not being put back on IR. Then the game yesterday we played most the game 2 players down after Witzel was injured. I liked Creel a lot too, but something had to be done. No use keeping an extra goalie thats not even dressing when you're having to play players short in every game keeping them.
  4. I guess you can't say 100% that it couldn't happen, but I think future considerations trades are made more for sending your player to a team you want them to go to instead of releasing them and going to a team that can hurt you. Like Bronner and Creel, we sent Bronner to QC and Creel to Macon. Play QC 3 times all year and we are done playing Macon. From what i've seen most of them turn out being no where close for trade value. Like we sent Bronner to QC and than got Troy Henley for him a couple weeks later and he dressed for one game then was cut. I doubt coaches are out there making trades to not pick someone in the playoffs for a player. Saying that though, i guess its not a guarantee that some coach isn't sneaky enough to try it.
  5. Good move, some people are upset but the move had to be done. Not very smart carrying three goalies in this league with all the call ups and injuries. Would have been nice to get something immediately after Witzel being put on the 30 day ir. I guess we'll be signing someone else. If not, i'm not sure why we got rid of Creel.
  6. I think he's being saracastic and saying having Bo Driscoll as the coach is punishing everyone. Atleast i think thats what he meant. Gave me a giggle. I thought this was any easy way to have a reason to fire an underachieving coach.
  7. No just means he is on the reserve. ECHL lets teams put people on reserve who aren't allowed to dress for games until they pull him off of the reserve. Its basically the same thing as injured reserve but the players are usually just healthy but going to be scratched for any number of games. Plus there is no certain time they have to stay on the reserve like our injured reserves are 14,21, and 30 days. ECHL can use their reserve however they want. They also have an injured reserve too.
  8. I just checked the boxscore. They just got a 10 minute misconduct. Thats not the same as a game misconduct. He is safe.
  9. That is unless somebody has accumulated 4 game misconducts in a season. If that happens then its an automatic 1 game suspension for everyone after the 4th one. I know him and Ortiz has atleast 2 a piece for each other. Ortiz got thrown out for a boarding penalty earlier in the season and Armstrong did in our last home game.
  10. I could be wrong but I don't think thats an automatic suspension. I think it's just 5 minutes or less in the game and get instigating penalty. That or leaving the bench is automatic suspension.
  11. We have them next Saturday for everyone wins night. If we lose everybody gets in free to a remaining game. Guess they picked the perfect opponent for that one in their favor.
  12. I'm probably pretty sure they do but they mentioned UAH game was going on so i'm guessing until it was over they didn't let them in.
  13. And oh yeah, how was that 1 or 2 punch knockout on the guy who was in our training camp from Armstrong? Looked like he didn't even know where he was skating off! Even Dion got in a good one. Loved the fight in our Dawgs, literally!
  14. I thought that was a pretty great game by everyone. Everyone was being physical. Plenty of offense and thought the defense played great considering how Knoxville took them to school on the last game with all the odd man rushes we gave up. Thought we were finally break a game wide open but nope, another one goal game. Proud of the Dawgs, was worried would take us awhile to get going since the early start but they played well right out of the opening faceoff. Barone was just doing Barone with his great goaltending. Witzel didn't look good going off in the 2nd. As soon as he seems to be playing better that happens. Hopefully nothing serious. Way to go DaWWgs!
  15. They took him off reserve, let him be the back up for a game and now back on reserve.
