  1. Maybe announce what Bus League Hockey says is 99.9% finally? https://busleaguehockey.com/2018/06/14/where-the-heck-is-the-fhl-mentor-announcement/
  2. https://thesinbin.net/campos-sphl-summer-stack-sequel/
  3. I was looking for someone to pick up TJ from Mississippi. I thought he was one of the best in the league.
  4. I was just about to say that's one of the writers of Bus League Hockey website but they mentioned that in the article.
  5. They also announced the Newfoundland Growlers affiliation will be with Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Marlies
  6. Looking good Marksmen, you can list David Gandara in red. He called into Greg Roberts show he was always on and said he was hanging the skates up. Probably Nick Schneider too. Unless some how he changes his mind about retiring.
  7. I thought that too, at first. But I talked to a Pensacola fan and they said he didn't want to play anywhere else. If that's the case there is no reason to have to use a spot on the protected list unless they thought he was going to be taken in the expansion draft.
  8. Another video from RYD's facebook page. Love it, don't think it's even possible for us to have found better owners for our team! Bet those kids had the time of their life.https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=934106593430754&id=499884373519647
  9. The RYD's owners Jamie, Ty, and Brock along with Coach Bremner and RYD player Zach Tatryn finished up the 3rd Annual Hockey Camp. Here is a piece from WDBJ7. http://www.wdbj7.com/content/sports/Rail-Yard-Dawgs-summer-hockey-school-attracts-more-girls-485095021.html
  10. The LNAH is the only league i know of and can find listed as a semi professional hockey league saying they make $150 to $400 dollars a game and is their only compensation. Here is an article I found that touches on it a little. Says in 2011 Donald Brashear was the only one who didn't have a second job outside the rink. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2011/03/01/sports/hockey/01hockey.html
  11. I'm not 100% on it, i'd have to do some research. But i'm pretty sure the SPHL is a professional hockey league. Semi professional is they don't pay you enough and you have to have a second job during the league's season. An offseason job doesn't make a player semi professional. They pay the housing in the SPHL so players don't have to have a second job during the season. Only reason I know this is awhile back I remember semi pro teams were offering good paying easy jobs during the season as a reason to recruit the best players and it was deemed illegal. Some players in the highest levels of sports have other jobs in the offseason. That doesn't make them semi professionals. Semi pro i believe you need to have a second job during the season to make ends meet. Not just a second job in the offseason. The SPHL players are a full time athlete until the season is over. Semi Pro will have a game or practice then have to go to work or vice versa. Like i said, i could be wrong but thats how i've always thought it was.
  12. Guess they are starting off earlier resigning their captain.
  13. Colorado Eagles beat Florida Everblades 3-2 in game 7 of the final. Colorado wins the Championship before moving up leagues next year.
  14. I did the samething and thought that it was weird not having them on there. But after I finished i went back and read the beginning. Mighty Ducks was the best as a kid growing up.
  15. If you enjoyed it that much they made a MVP 2 Most Vertical Primate. He is a skateboarder though, not any hockey.
  16. That was pretty cool. Me and my son play all the time. Would be awesome to play with the whole sphl rosters. But yea, I would probably pick Dennis Sicard. He is probably the most well known veteran player in the league having played with most teams and his style on ice stands out.
  17. I'm right there with you on that. When you play guys more then one game in a row it seems the two teams get more into rivalry mode. Things usually start getting more physical while sometimes getting chippy. One of my favorite series last year was the 4 games we played against Peoria. They might not have meant much in the standings after we clinched a playoff spot but by watching how the two teams played you never could have noticed.
  18. 3 letter word zen. If your lucky someone plays that word and you have the rest of the letters. That's about the only 3 letter word I can find in it.
  19. One month and 6 days between a home game. I don't like it either but i guess it will be like that every year. From what I hear we will be keeping that Thanksgiving Day game each year to bring back the tradition we had when we were in the ECHL.
  20. I would be no good getting it anyways. Everytime I have to spell his name I have to look it up. Not a very easy one to remember. Something never looks right with it with one vowel and all those y's.
  21. Hard to pick one so i'll do one for each team. Huntsville - Sy Nutkevich Mississippi - Devin Mantha Fayetteville - Jake Hauswirth Pensacola - Sean Bonar but since he didn't stay long i'd say Gordon Defiel. Evansville - Tomas Sholl Macon - Dennis Sicard Birmingham - Josh Harris Knoxville - Berkley Scott Peoria - Defenseman of the year Dave Pszenyczny or Alex Hagaman for all around good player. Roanoke - hard to pick Steve Mele or I guess final answer would be Goaltender of the year Brad Barone
  22. http://www.pjstar.com/sports/20160107/rivermen-hope-newcomer-pszenyczny-spells-sphl-championship-for-peoria
  23. Yes its his nickname, i figure it's because his name would be worth a ton in Scrabble.
  24. The whole league is being taken over by Peoria's former players!!!
