  1. I'm a bit baffled by the goalie situation as well. I hope Hetenyi ends up ok. Everyone seemed to think from the exhibition that Davenport was better than Spano. Davenport had nice stats for his one game at Peoria last year, but it's concerning to me that he was cut after one game by a team that was desperate for goaltending at that point. Does anyone know if Spano had any rest or practice with the team prior to the exhibition? I think it might just be a case of circumstances with those two, instead of the direct comparison on that one night. Just reading the roster makes me think Knoxville is a couple of defensemen away from being good. Did Neugold play defense or center? If he is playing defense, that just shows the IB are hurting in that area.

    Apparently packing his moving van. Wait, this is 18 guys if I counted right. Thought this was 22 man roster. Did coach go ahead and cut down towards his Friday roster?
  3. I figure he was training camp fodder. I suspect there are roster shakeouts left to occur from the AHL. He's a good player around the net. He just doesn't have the foot speed for the ECHL.
  4. I'm not sure he got past the physical in Utah. Has anyone heard that?
  5. Sandler won't stick in the ECHL. His penalty minutes and production in Elmira were not good. He only stayed there because everyone knew Elmira was folding, so they could not get players most of last season. I don't see him having anywhere to go but here. Metcalfe certainly won't stick in the ECHL. I venture a guess that if he comes to Knoxville, he possibly gets cut from the Ice Bears before the season ends. Cincinnati is either hurting this year, or they are awaiting other additions.
  6. Look at that point production. The numbers were staggering. His goals scored were almost all against Knoxville, and almost all on Knoxville's ice. That is why Knoxville signed him. He was thought to fit perfectly on that small ice. Once it became his home arena, the advantage somehow disappeared. It was a weird anomaly and in no way shows overall improvement in his game.
  7. For those of you that haven't seen Kyle McNeil in awhile, I just want to re-affirm for you that he is still terrible. If you have any expectations of him, you are going to be sorely disappointed. He is not a scorer, he is not a role player, he is not an enforcer. He seems like a nice enough guy, but he is a waste of a roster space. As a matter of fact, if he makes your roster for more than a week or two, it's an indication that your team is not going to be very good. If he's a fill-in until reinforcements arrive from the ECHL, he could possibly entertain you for a game or two. I hope for you that he has transformed into Rob Sich over the summer. More than likely, you will be wondering how he can get slower and how someone that big manages to underutilize his size advantages.

    Much appreciated. If Knoxville gets behind 6-0 or more, would you mind tossing out a couple of short and appropriate "boos"? Please don't get out of line. I want it to be wholly appropriate and tolerable for those in neighboring seats.

    You do know the first weekend is away? It's more patient that one might believe.
  10. Player Signings

    If your team is made up of more than 1 or 2 guys from a free agent camp, you have a long season coming. That being said, I think the Ice Bears free agent camp this year actually is comprised of more seasoned hockey players than these camps typically feature. The time between the exhibition game and the first road game could be interesting. There's a lot of transactions possible from previous Ice Bears and ECHL cuts on the way. I think I'll wait until the first home game to decide whether to panic, though.
  11. I think Pensacola's coach likely has more insight, and Fayetteville is not willing to risk having nothing remaining from a situation they cannot control or probably understand with their connections to the player. I guess it could be the other way around, however, if the Fayetteville coach is well connected with Bonar's ECHL coach.
  12. Player Signings

    Because it's Beer League hockey.
  13. Player Signings

    I suspect he may be back. I thought he was just able to stay in Elmira last year because they couldn't get players due to their arena/ownership situation. He is very good if he doesn't have to be a primary puck handler. If he can play in the corners and around the net, he's great to have around. He's an irritant to the other team, which can be good, but he needs to reduce the penalties a little bit. This team needs Sandler, Hertz, Manno, and Flegel if they want to start competitively; unless there is just a boatload of promises from other ECHL campers to come in if they don't make an E roster.
  14. Player Signings

    Nearly 6 penalty minutes per game in the ECHL? They are talking like he's an enforcer. He is tough(-ish), but I'm having trouble seeing this description of him.

    Have the Ice Bears just stopped signing players? Are they waiting on the fruit to fall from the magical underpaid hockey player tree?
