  1. Yes, no matter what happens, I expect a lot tougher team then when we had Ftorek as our head coach. I'm very excited about this upcoming year!
  2. Nice I predicted this might happen after Peoria left him off their playoff roster. I love this signing!!!!
  3. Bus League Hockey answers your question about the newsletter. They also have their own conspiracy theory on what was going on with The UHL. https://busleaguehockey.com/2018/07/10/conspiracy-theory-the-rumored-uhl-revival-was-a-backup-plan-if-the-fhl-crumbled/
  4. Found this video of the views from inside and outside of every SPHL arena from last season's teams. Nice to see what they all look like.
  5. That's a good sign atleast somebody maybe still in charge of recruiting players unless this all happened before the coach moved on.
  6. Atleast it looks like the majority of them the team they are playing will be playing the same amount of games in a row. Now you mention it Roanoke plays 3 games in 3 nights, 4 times. Only 1 is against the same team. The other 3 we have to travel to different places. One we even have a home game against Fayetteville at home on a Thursday, then travel to Huntsville for Friday, then both teams turn around and play again in Roanoke. Long way away for a home and home series. Fayetteville will atleast get to rest and not have to travel in between games. But like you pointed out it seems they really cut down on Fayetteville travel. Play most of their games in a row when starting a series and don't even have to travel to QC. They more or less make us travel around all the time and have to visit everywhere. Not one thing is very consistent with any of the schedules. They can't even keep us in the same part of country in between series. Have one we play 3 away games against Peoria then 3 away games in QC. After that they send us to Pennsacola to play 2 games in a weekend. Finally turn us back around and play 2 games in Evansville. Did somebody new take over the scheduling duties?
  7. To me thats not necessarily a bad thing. Just shows he was on the bench more to learn how his NHL coaches taught the game. Plus he is an assistant coach, we have no clue in what capacity he will even be coaching. He could just be teaching the guys the physical aspects of the game, team chemistry, or basically a scout. A hockey coach needs to be a strategist and a good motivator. Not everything in hockey is about skill. Skill helps a lot, but in professional hockey most of these players have already developed their skill sets. A good coach looks at his teams strengths and weaknesses and creates a gameplan for them. You can be the greatest skill player ever and be the worst coach and also not very skilled player and a great coach. Just because you can put the puck in the net as a player in no way will make you a better coach. If you can't teach discipline, motivation, and good positioning its like the old saying you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
  8. LOL...some of you having problems with what facts are..... These are indeed facts! This is also a fact! But irrelavant because a lot of SPHL coaches have no professional coaching experience. Playing in about every high level hockey league is alot more then most SPHL coaches can say. It could be a fact but i'm pretty sure you shouldn't use the words most likely in making a factual statement. These are opinions of what you think about him. In no way are they facts. I'm pretty sure he knows something. I don't think it's a bad hire but i'm probably pretty sure someone else might have the same opinion about it. Just might happen to be one of the guys he fought in his 133 career NHL fights. Got to give him props, he dropped them with some of the best in the NHL.
  9. Two of the most recent head coaches hired in this league has no head coaching job experience of any and was less then a year from their playing career. Dave P. straight out of playing and Bremner was an assistant coach at Ohio, in charge of the defense for less then a full season. If you have been around hockey all your life you seem to figure out what wins you games, no matter if your a good player or not. Just look in the NHL, some of the best coaches never were good or made it far in their hockey career. Just look at Scotty Bowman. Watch the ESPN Miracles of Men about Russian Hockey Innovator Anatoly Tarasov. (spelling maybe wrong)
  10. Signed players news update from The Sin Bin. https://thesinbin.net/nikiforov-and-levesque-heed-the-call-of-the-storm/
  11. He described what i'm trying to say a lot better then I could. Seems the league is all about cost cutting measures then being a competitive league. Not sure how fans are going to react in QC, Peoria, and Evansville playing 15 out of their 28 games at home to the same two teams. Leaving 13 games to see the other 7 teams in the league. With QC an expansion team and now Evansville with no coach to be recruiting players it could be a rough year playing an always good Peoria team.
  12. His size might be a disadvantage, but I think if he consistently lights the lamp like he has so far in the FHL and SPHL someone will pick him up to do the same for them in the ECHL. He might not make a roster on opening night but as soon as injuries and teams who can't score much need to change up the lineup i'm sure they will be looking for someone like him putting up good numbers.

  14. Well start a poll and see who believes my value judgement is right or wrong. I don't understand why you are so upset because i think it's bullcrap we are the only team in the league who has 2 teams who doesn't even visit Roanoke to play games. The reason to expand is to get other teams and fanbases excited to see more teams play in a league. Leaving one team, not seeing two teams in the league kind of spoils the whole nostalgia of even having new teams when you don't even have the option to watch them play in your arena. But i'm sorry you clearly don't get that, so keep on being you.
