  1. Nice find vicvegas, I can't see any reason why Sam doesn't bring him back then if he wants to continue. Unless he can find another player that is similar but with better stats beyond PM's. Updated roster, moved BUG to camp.
  2. Congratulations on a turn around season, I recall you guys being in the bottom part of the table. Nice job.
  3. That's a solid line up, I remember the names Bonar, Drobot and Shapiro when you came to Roanoke. Those guys gave us a tough time early in the season when we just couldn't get one over on you. Wish you guys well because I think we will have a good rivalry brewing next season. This year not so much but there was no team we wanted to beat more than Fayetteville. What happened in the playoffs?
  4. Assumed Armstrong was staying in the ECHL but I'd take him back for sure. Good to see Brewer still playing I'll have to follow them and see how he does.
  5. Hard to get a good read after first season especially being expansion. It was an abnormal amount of injuries and we had a few good players getting called up. You can only get what is available, Sam wasn't passing up good players on purpose, he knows what he needs and we started seeing that as the season went on. I suspect a lot of the smaller guys he brought in were meant to be temporary , instead became permanent. I think they will get this right, I'm optimistic and think we will be a much better team next year. Hard to tell about best coach but he has a chance to prove us wrong next year.
  6. Definately a good deal for our future team. Hopefully it will pay off.
  7. Sam definitely has some big decisions to make. Almost another rebuild job like last summer but with a handful of keepers. Also not going to be much time to gel similar to this year, on the job training.
  8. Good points about Melo, I could live with that. I think any of those three D guys would be worth a chance. Yeah Vasquez was fun to watch wasn't he.
  9. You are incorrect in your assumptions but you have a right to state your opinion. Moving on...
  10. Cody was signed on a three game contract to start the season, due to injuries he was kept. Was very shaky and even bad at times, took him a while to get confident enough to become more physical as the season went on. As with every player on our defense most of whom weren't here for all 55 games, their stats are terrible. Chris Letang in our D setup this season would have looked bad. Stats are one thing but it won't show his progress through the season. The last two home games he was reading the game better than anybody on our team and was very physical, didn't take stupid penalties is a good thing. Not sure why you would want to get rid of a potentially good player who can only get better. Are there better players out there sure but he is one of our best defensemen. If we put a good team around him next season I have no doubt he will be better.
  11. If so I'd trade Gandara for Ty and maybe Anderson for Melo if I was confident he would come back but I'm not so sure.
  12. Just a hunch since he came back from a tough injury, played for a bit and got injured again. Just have the feeling after he gets married he might choose to end this chapter of his life since he's likely in the last few seasons of his career anyway. I hope he comes back because he's so entertaining regardless of his numbers.
  13. Protected 13 5 Walsh, Cody (R) D - Best defensmen hope he stays, iron man. 4 Donnellan, Mike D - Wasn't sold at first but he's gotten better, a steady hand at the back. x de Melo, Ryan G - looked bad at the end of the season with injury but he is good and enjoy his attitude. 8 Bronner, Phil RW - hardest working guy on our team by far, fights for everything. 21 Brewer, Jackson LW - On form this guy is amazing, I think he will get better. X Beirnes, Jeremy LW - Entertainment value alone is worth admission. 11 Mele, Steve C - Can skate with speed with good players around him. 19 Vernace, Daniel C - another hard worker on the ice, need his energy. 17 Driscoll, Mike LW - Can skate and has experience. 28 Babenko, Dmytro (R) LW - puts in a shift every time. x Spraggs, Riley (R) RW - This guy healthy with Brewer has great potential and a lot of goals. 20 Tatrn, Zach C - Shows up with goals when you need them. 26 Gintoli, Peter (R) - Great player for his size, love his energy. Retired 7 Schneider, Nick D - retire X Murray, Colin LW - retire Training Camp 30 Reichenbach, Ty (R) G - This guy was solid if Anderson isn't back I'd take him over Ballmer.X Anderson, Brandon G - not sure about this but possible he comes back to work with Melo 33 Ballmer, Joey (R) - Ballmer was pretty good but I rated Ty better, if Anderson/Reichenbach don't come back I'll take him. X Boyle, Tim D - If he was injured in ECHL he might come back to work his way up again. X Vazquez, Alex (R) RW - would like to see this guy come back x Gandara, David (R) LW - has a lot of potential, good stats for someone who played so little.
  14. Ok so let's have a little fun since we have a few weeks without playoffs and news will probably be slim until mid May or so. Here is our roster, how do you see it playing out and who are the 13 protected players that we will submit to start with next season. 4 Donnellan, Mike D 5 Walsh, Cody (R) D 7 Schneider, Nick D 8 Bronner, Phil RW 10 Stevens, Justin (R) D 11 Mele, Steve C 14 Schultz, Evan (R) LW 15 Lipari, Michael D 15 Llorca, Vincent D 16 Orlando, Sean (R) RW 17 Driscoll, Mike LW 19 Vernace, Daniel C 20 Tatrn, Zach C 21 Brewer, Jackson LW 23 Bauer, Ben D 26 Gintoli, Peter (R) 28 Babenko, Dmytro (R) LW 30 Reichenbach, Ty (R) G 33 Ballmer, Joey (R) Gandara, David (R) LW Spraggs, Riley (R) RW de Melo, Ryan G X Anderson, Brandon G X Armstrong, Travis D X Baker, Mike (R) D X Beirnes, Jeremy LW X Bourne, Taylor RW X Boyle, Tim D X Chegrintsev, Maxim (R) X Chiarantano, Matt (R) D X Dallaire, Bryan D X Gjurich, Tyler RW X Harris, Ian LW X Hosmer, Todd LW X Jeke, Travis (R) D X Kaludis, Matt (R) G X Kruger, James G X Lamacchia, Massimo C X Meads, Mark (R) RW X Melkert, Cory (R) D X Mitchell, Matt G X Moroso, Mike (R) RW X Mueller, Mitchell D X Murray, Colin LW X Peters, Michael G X Popek, Jason C X Skudalski, Craig (R) LW X Stibysh, Igor (R) D X Tesoriero, Phil D X Turner, Michael (R) LW X Vandergunst, Mitchell RW X Vazquez, Alex (R) RW
