  1. Bio of players on opening day roster from Brian Gardner's Dawgs Talk Blog. https://dawgstalk.wordpress.com/2017/10/19/a-closer-look-opening-night-roster/amp/
  2. Thats just because he didn't want to totally show up his competition. He has good sportsmanship. He embarrassed them enough. Just chased him out of his rink.
  3. UHL Returns For 2017\18 Season

    Its back up now. Must have forgot to pay the bill. Hope they run a hockey league better then a website. You can be a charter member if you like https://www.unitedhockeyleague.com
  4. when i went to type his name in elite prospects before you posted this i put paul murray. Thats weird.
  5. I thought we were going to make it without having to hear about this mess. I don't agree with protesting during the national anthem, but its whoevers right to do so. Always thought politics should be out of sports. Seems they talk about this drama more then the sports now. Leave it to Dave to have a story on it. http://www.pjstar.com/sports/20171018/sphl-and-national-anthem-well-stand-proudly
  6. UHL Returns For 2017\18 Season

    It says its expired, just like the league has been. That didn't take long!!!!
  7. Been Waiting On This One

    Not if im going to share my thoughts on it and piss off half of my readers whichever side of the fence im on. Look at the situation the NFL has on their hands. Its a no win situation with whatever you do.
  8. Roster

    That will help with back to back games in case of injury or call ups. Good deal!!!
  9. Travis Armstrong

    Only 15 minutes left in the morning. They just love keeping us in suspense.
  10. Roster

    Sounds to me Pope just made a mistake. If he was talking about the player not in uniform he wouldn't have said "the SPHL rosters have grown 1 player per roster this season to 19". This has been a rule for awhile now. Or atleast started before last year.
  11. Roster

    I meant they are allowed to have 19 players actually on their bench. Acting like an assistant coach or something, but they aren't allowed to dress in uniform. It is usually going to be a player injured for a long period. Your allowed as many players roaming the stands as needed. Last year at one time we had about a half of a team sitting in the stands because of injuries.
  12. Roster

    Yes, I read it to. The writer did say 19, but I believe they are wrong. Was just saying I haven't heard anything about being able to have 19. The SPHL 2017-2018 still has 16 players and 2 goalies. Not sure if they are confused because you are allowed 19 players on the bench. But one of them can't be in uniform and has to be out there in a coaching capacity. Thats not a new rule though because Steve Mele was doing it for our team last year for half the season when he was injured.
  13. Roster

    I haven't heard any rule changes. Should still be 16 and 2 goalies. Would be smart to be able to have an extra one like the echl for the beginning of the season before they drop back 1 for each roster. I would be in favor of 1 extra no matter for how long. Too many get injured and have to find players alot. Make it alot easier on the teams. But #1 reason its 18 is the cost for the teams.
  14. 2017\18 New Playoff Format

    I was the opposite. Made me want to vote yes, after first voting for undecided. Could make things really interesting a few years down the road.
  15. Anyone heard how many season tickets the Dawgs sold this year?
  16. Very nice story, always glad to hear what goes on behind the scenes. Happy to see The Roanoke Times pick up an article like this one. Can't wait until Friday!!!!!!!
  17. 2017\18 New Playoff Format

    Looks like its not as unpopular as I first thought. In the nbcsports poll 67.37% or 256 votes liked the new format. While 32.63% or 124 didn't like it.
  18. Where was zach tatrn? Where in the world is Brewer? Haven't heard any news of him anywhere in hockey. Can't see him retiring from hockey.
  19. 2017\18 New Playoff Format

    Only thing i see negative is it gives the 5-8 teams no reason to play harder at the end of the season. I really don't see this "gimmick" catching on like the others the sphl adopted. Top seeds will play hard to have the opportunity but takes every advantage away from the 5-8 seeds to keep playing because now it doesn't really matter where they finish. Also, nothing about it screams "the greatest thing ever" to me. I'm kind of wishing this idea had stayed in Austria. But the facebook comments are a bit harsh way to put it.

  21. 2017\18 New Playoff Format

    I don't see any much difference, unless one of the lower teams bring in a bunch of ringers toward the end of the season. I wouldn't really want to chose my opponent that has a chance to take me out of the playoffs. But agree the owners should be in on changes like these if they weren't. Since they are the ones putting up the money for the teams. Seems to me this league likes tinkering with new rules trying to see if they improve the game. Just like when NHL decided to use the 3 on 3 OT.
  22. Alex played a few games for us last year before he had to go back and finish college. He scored a goal for us and checked everything in sight. I liked what I saw from him in the few games he played. Looked like a keeper. Should be a good one for you guys.
  23. Seen Fayetteville post that their training camp/practices is open to public. Was wondering if hopefully anybody knows if your allowed to attend anything put on by Roanoke? Any info and the scheduled times people can attend would be nice. If not ill end up calling them or finding out somehow.
