  1. I think you hit the nail on the head Sharkies, if I remember correctly the Express's last season was the first season after the ECHL-WCHL merger and the subsequent western expansion.
  2. Soft and boring

    You think maybe he has Clinton's e-mails?
  3. This transaction still isn't showing up anywhere except the SPHL transaction page, but the ECHL page is showing Adirondack acquiring D man Blake Thompson from Cincinnati so I wonder if maybe they didn't change their mind when Thompson became an option.
  4. I don't know the specifics and I am not usually one to comment with third party accounts but I was told that coach said that as far as he was concerned Gjurich was not welcome back in the city of Roanoke, much less on the team. So it must have been a pretty serious issue.
  5. He was signed to training camp but I don't believe he actually attended.
  6. That is correct, we ended up trading him for the rights to Todd Hosmer. I agree that it would be nice to get some muscle on the roster but he is not the guy we need.
  7. I can't help but wonder how much of a role conditioning plays in a performance so far this season. I personally think we played almost a full game Friday night, take away the 2 bonehead goals we gave up and we win that game 3-1. But Saturday was a completely different story, saying we were flat 2 periods is being generous and that makes two weeks in a row that we fell apart on the second game of a back to back series. The most disturbing thing I saw all weekend was Schneider's penalty at the end of regulation. Not the call itself, but the fact that he was smiling about it, a captain should be pissed off about taking a penalty that sends his team into ot shorthanded. I couldn't agree more with Greg about us needing to stand up for our keeper. We can not continue to allow our opponents push us around like they have so far this season. Last night was even more disappointing to me than last Saturday because I think last night was the first game this season that they gave up, the last 5 minutes of the game they looked like they just wanted to get the game over with.
  8. While I must admit I was disappointed with this weekend's games, I have to remind myself that we were only skating two centers this weekend. Kind of like expecting a football team to be successful when every third snap is being taken by a running back instead of a quarterback. Thats going to lead to less successful transitions into the offensive zone which is going to lead to a Defense that is worn out later in the game.
  9. Nice Win

    I was listening to Brian, there is a place on the bottom of the video feed where you select home or away audio. BTW even the sphl away audio feed was about a minute ahead of the video feed.

    Well, if anyone knows how to create lasting rivalries it's the Austrians
  11. 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.
  12. Mueller actually skated during pre-game warm-up.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.

    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.
