  1. Some of our more obnoxious fans tend to sit right around where you guys were. Last season I sat in the section directly to the left of where you were and the behavior of some of the fans in that section is one of the reason I moved my seats to the opposite side of the ice. I look forward to making the trip down to Fayetteville again this season. I had a great time down there last season.
  2. Mueller actually skated during pre-game warm-up.
  3. It was a good game and glad to have you guys in attendance. I hope the Berglund Center crowd made you guys feel welcome. I tried several times to make my way around the rink to personally extend a welcome but never was able to make it around without being stopped by someone.
  4. It is definitely going to be interesting to see who makes the final roster. I was really impressed by the Bronner-Mele-Gandara line this morning, they really seemed to work well together.
  5. 2017\18 New Playoff Format

    I am intrigued. There are so many factors that could influence a 1 seeds decision. Say the six seed is the 1 seeds top rival, or the 5 seed has no home ice available, or maybe the 8 seed has had the 1 seeds number all season or travel costs could play into it. I mean being top seed is supposed to give you an advantage in the playoffs so why not give them the choice of who they play instead of just assuming that being paired against the bottom is the best advantage for them.
  6. Just read Reichenbach was released from his try out agreement and signed to SPC so he won't be coming back.
  7. Greg, I would greatly appreciate it if you could follow up here with whatever you find out.
  8. By my count we have 8 Dawgs from last season going to ECHL camps. Armstrong in Indy, Boyle in Adirondack, Biernes in Wheeling, Vernace in Tulsa, Spraggs in Jacksonville, Turner in Orlando, Bauer in Reading, and Vasquez in Brampton. With Armstrong and Boyle also attending AHL camps in Toronto and Binghamton respectively. Have I missed anybody? Also who does everyone else feel will make the cut and who will be back in the SPHL by opening night?
  9. Thanks for sharing Mac. I think we here in Roanoke are blessed with a great group of owners and its always nice to see what they have to say, whether it be about the Dawgs or their own careers.
  10. You are correct, Boyle has a tryout with the Binghamton Devils. So if he makes the team and all the stars align he could end up playing with his brother.
  11. there is nothing in his history that says he is an AHL-level player. Apparently someone in the Marlies organization disagrees with Katya Knappe on that point.
  12. Question About SPHL News Articles

    I can confirm that I also have the option of starting a new thread but not to reply to existing topics it the SPHL News Articles forum.

  14. Everything I've read seems to hint that it was an owners decision but nothing has outright said as much.
  15. I think the NHL probably does see a bump during this portion of the season due to the lull in other major sports. The problem is that bump comes from sports fans tuning in because there isn't much else on, this year I would bet most of those viewers will be watching the Olympics and probably even a few die hard hockey fans will forego watching the Caps play the Canes for the fourth time of the season to watch some kid from Minnesota slide a rock down the ice while a couple more kids from Minnesota sweep in front of it, I know I will.
