  1. I think the Ice Bears shop needs to go with new shirts. Front: FEMA Storm Team Back: You've Been Thunderstruck With Carr likely getting the mandatory 5 game suspension and having no assistant coach, I think we should go with guest coaches. Let's show Craigen we still love him and get him the day after Christmas home slot.
  2. Nice post. I do think Craigen built his teams more specifically for the small home ice, and that was good and bad at various times. Also, Craigen's only team that received lots of penalties was last year. That team thought they were super tough for some reason. The team this year takes lots of bad stick infractions, not so much rough stuff. Craigen's teams would finish checks normally, though. This team does not do that most games. I think the most accurate thing you've said is that Carr has no strategy for dealing with in-season roster needs (call-ups). He has looked lost when his roster needed repair or change. I hope he figures that out. If not, I'm just afraid that we'll be starting over again next year. If that happens again, they have to find a proven coach of some sort and step away from the developmental philosophy in regards to coaching hires.
  3. He has 3 Craigen players. One is Berkley Scott. If you willingly keep that bum, it's on you. This team has regressed since about 3 weeks into the season. His roster is made up of fringe players(that hustle to give credit). They did not play well last night. They persevered and found a way to make it happen for two periods. This team is not progressing, and that is concerning. This coach should have started slow and shown improvement. He seems to have improved the team culturally and shown great attitude, but the product is not getting better. He needs to fix system or roster. I see neither moving. I'm stunned to see him leave vet spots unfilled when there are holes, especially on D. No one mentioned firing him. The statement was just that it was a personal surprise that some found a personal preference for what we had with Craigen. That's not a vote for either, but simply an acknowledgement that Carr may not be an improvement. Guys removed from Tier 14 Jr teams in their second year create a situation where I can get concerned quickly that he is not the right choice. History (Mark Rodgers) shows our coaching searches aren't always perfect.
  4. That has not been true in over a month.
  5. Amazingly, I would take him back tonight. I think Carr displays a level of professionalism that is an improvement over Craigen. He sacrifices in other areas, though. His refusal to participate in social media is a huge detriment at this level. Craigen's interaction with fans and giving of information was the type of guerrilla marketing that a team in this league needs. Craigen had faults (roster churning without a plan, backside defense, and power play), but Carr is falling apart quickly. They have played one good game in a month. He's shown no ability to adjust the roster as required when a team at this level is stale. His defense is non-existent. Back post defense is the least of this team's concerns. This experiment is collapsing. I think the ownership bought a nice sales presentation from this guy.
  6. It is beyond obvious that Coach is not going to allow that.
  7. Chen is Bo Driscoll. He has no business in this league. He cannot physically do it.
  8. This coach refuses to play physical. There is no checking whatsoever. Howe is a wasted roster spot. Coach doesn't allow him to do his job, and there's no need for his job with the Ice Bears refusal to even initiate any physicality. Knoxville has made a bad mistake with Carr. The coach that got fired from Tier 4 Juniors in his second year, we got exactly what we feared. He has no idea how to even shake up this roster. One quarter of the way through the season, and he has no idea how to made any coaching adjustments. It looks like a 3 Stooges skit when they try to defend for any length of time now. They are so far out of position within 15 or 20 seconds in their zone. There's no need to even discuss whether there is a goaltender issue. You can't tell because of the play in front of them.
  9. I think the arena ultimately has the issue to deal with. I just have been told they have more than $0 responsibility in some manner.
  10. Because they cancelled a scheduled game on short notice creating hardships for multiple entities.
  11. It is more than $0.
  12. Birmingham Bulls Roster

    Norfolk really must be getting desperate.
  13. Coach is cutting it close with his pre-game chat since weeknight games start at 7:05 pm. Will he go straight from the bleacher area to the bench? Is this just before the national anthem? Do you know if security will somehow be expedited to get everyone in the arena in less than 30 minutes? Thanks in advance.
  14. 5-0 after 1st

    Not to throw dirt on your grave, but Roanoke is terrible. You need an identity. Right now, you are consistent though. You consistently are bad at offense, defense, special teams, and most everything else. How in the world did Knoxville go up there and lose last week? Good luck to you guys. You deserve better in a good hockey market.
