  1. That third period was absolutely pitiful. The biggest issue has got to be the lack of PK here lately, 4-10 in the last three games. Either gotta fix that or stop taking penalties and that is pretty much impossible with the officials in this league.
  2. Was this the same writer who kept saying Bonar was in net earlier in the season, because apparently we play the Birmingham Barons on Saturday? Have to agree that I really liked what I saw from Guyon. That set up pass to Mele was a thing of beauty.
  3. I was planning on going, I was 16 and just dumb enough to venture out in that mess. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your veiwpoint, I didn't have my own car yet and my mom wouldn't let me go out in it. I had friends who came over to go to the game and they ended up getting stuck at my house for like 4 days. If I remember correctly, that was a very fitting end for that season.
  4. Thinking maybe the booster club may want to rethink the whole bus trip thing. Two booster club bus trips, both 3 goal losses.
  5. I'm not hearing anything but the crowd mike on the away feed. No Brian at all
  6. Check out @RailYardDawgs’s Tweet: Some footage of Ox earning his kibble.
  7. Very interesting video. I think it is quite fitting that the Lancerlot will be getting ice back roughly on the 30th anniversary of the ECHL which basically started in the building. I think it would be cool to have an exhibition game as part of the ribbon cutting. Perhaps between either Utah and Wheeling or Greenville the only original franchises still in the league (Utah was the Virginia Lancers, Greenville was the Johnstown Chiefs and Wheeling was the Carolina Thunderbirds) or Roanoke and Knoxville since they were both original ECHL cities. I tried to find info on who played in the first official ECHL game but I couldn't find it.
  8. I had issues with the away feed during pre-game but they all cleared up once Brian's broadcast began. As far as the camera work, I felt like I needed to take a Dramamine after about a half a period, not to mention the numerous times the camera wasn't anywhere near the actual play going on. I would love to have actually seen the moves Guyon put on Billett for his second goal, instead of seeing just his move to get around the defense and then the shot.
  9. Most of the Adirondack posts are posted by the same guy, I am fairly sure he is just trolling the Adirondack fans and a few others have started joining in. Adirondack just signed a new 3 year contract with the E.
  10. I'm pretty sure that would lead to all out mutiny among the fans, and I just don't really see the value added in getting him. Speaking of d-men, didn't someone say that Rowland traveled with the team this weekend? Also has anyone heard anything on Love?
  11. I was just thinking the same thing, between that and the play of Guyon last night all but guaranteeing him a full contract I could see another 2 for 1 move to clear roster space and sure up the blue line a bit for down the stretch.
  12. While I am glad we were able to come away with atleast one point on the night after the way we came out to start the game last night, Mississippi's game tying pp goal should have never happened. First off even Mississippi's commentator said the puck hit the glass before going out so there should have been no delay of game (this same thing happened in our last home game and I know without a doubt it hit the glass that time because it was literally right in front of my face that the puck hit the glass). Secondly the odd man rush that led to the goal was created by Salkeld blatantly tripping Sova in the neutral zone. Like I said, after the way we started out last night I consider the Dawgs lucky to salvage even one point, but to have an amazing streak ended atleast partially because of bad officiating kind of stings.
  13. I'm pretty sure they are both used by other SPHL teams. I know Macon uses the Rangers goal song and I am fairly certain I have heard the Islanders song while watching our away games I just can't remember who uses it.
  14. I absolutely agree. My initial thought was, you have got to be kidding me, but after having some time to digest the moves and really think about it I believe this will end up paying off for us in the long run. As far as those losing it on Facebook one of them is Mueller's sister so I would take her opinion with a grain of salt, and most of the other complaints are more emotional than anything else. I find myself constantly having to remind my wife to not get to attached to any individual players because turnover is a huge part of minor league hockey, that's a lesson I think a lot of our fans still need to learn.
  15. As painful as it may be for me to say, I really think Porter will thrive under Coach Bremners system.
