  1. Nah, just gonna flip over a poop emoji.
  2. Not sure. He proved himself in many ways. Deserved an extension. Not sure why three years, though. Where is he going that they wouldn't have let him out of his contract to go anyway (like moving up to ECHL)? Three years is a lot of time in this league. Scott Hillman showed quickly that he was a great coach at this level, so he got this type of treatment back in the day. I"m not sure Carr showed quite that impressively. I mean that is like ten or twelve in Fayetteville coaching years.
  3. It was actually Swider, Sich, and Vitek. The league was terrified that 3 of the best scorers in league history were going to be on the same team, so they screwed Knoxville just as the season was ramping up. They prevented Swider's return the previous year because he retired and worked in the front office. A second player also worked in the front office, and there was or is some sort of rule that only one player per season can be employed by the front office. The SPHL office should pay Knoxville child support at this point.
  4. Berkley Scott was the only veteran on Knoxville's roster all year. His game total was not extremely large for the veteran total either.
  5. How far out would you have to live before they'd consider it?
  6. He still lives there. His girlfriend/fiance/wife lives in Knoxville (I assume, as I've not verified his relationship status). He has been living long distance from her playing in Macon the last couple of years. Pure speculation, but I would think he doesn't want to continue that much longer. If he were to play, I would think Knoxville may be the only option he'd want for that. Also, Knoxville needs a veteran. They need a tough guy. They did not use Howe hardly at all in the enforcer role last year, so I'd think they'd want an enforcer kind of guy that can play meaningful shifts.
  7. I sort of suspect with Sicard's situation, he likely would retire now. The only situation I could think that makes sense is for him to sign with Knoxville to be their "enforcer" and 10th forward (especially since they seem to have no veterans remaining on the roster). If he isn't retired, I would assume it was Knoxville or retirement. That probably placed Macon in the situation of not protecting him.
  8. Does Bes bring stability, though? You guys desperately just need stability. You have great potential and a great core for the market. At this point, you guys just need the ground to stop moving so you can start walking and running.
  9. Pensacola hires as many coaches as Fayetteville. It's just the same one over and over though.
  10. Can't now. There's no U-turns on that road.
  11. I think that curtain call is over for good.
  12. Nice. Saving him for the playoff run!
  13. If there were no expansion draft, I'd say many of them were no risk to sign elsewhere. The expansion draft adds an element of risk to that making me think they all plan to move on in some way or another. It makes sense for most of them, but Cornellier is a bit puzzling. He is not a great player, but he's a good utility player. Unless he's just said he's not returning, he is better than at least 3 of the protected players.
  14. Cornellier, Robertson, and Hervey are big surprises off the list too. Bombardier, Sargis, and Brucato are real stretches to need protecting.
  15. Interesting. No Berkley Scott, Evan Neugold, Zoltan Hetenyi, or Jake Flegel.
  16. Larry Wampmacher. He won Mary and Bill's Southern Chicken Hut Marksmen Coach for a Day Contest for May 29.
  17. I did a bit of searching, and it appeared he intended to move back to Texas, where he had coached off an on for years and presumably still lived at times. After his firing, it appears he mentioned wanting to coach again. I'd be curious to see if he resurfaces. I always hoped the Ice Bears would bring him back to Knoxville.
  18. He was let go in the middle of the previous season. He was a top notch AA minor league hockey coach. Quad Cities fired him during a losing streak in the middle of the season that was mainly the result of a depleted roster from AHL call-ups. I'm not sure if he remained in the area or not. This would be nearly a year and a half later. He would be about the best you could hire in the SPHL, and at his age, I could see him doing it as a sort of "retirement" job. He would be difficult to beat in this league with his coaching and recruiting connections.
  19. Is Landmesser too entrenched in Memphis to move for an opportunity to continue coaching? Would Ruskowski come to the SPHL for a retirement job after ridiculously being let go from ECHL Mallards?
  20. Emmylou Harris vs. Dolly Parton all over again?
  21. If the basketball team schedule suddenly has a huge increase in weekend dates, it may tell the story. Sorry to see hockey gone for you guys. Good luck in getting something else established later.
  22. Doesn't John Deere produce the popular farm implement named the Gator? Seems perfectly normal based on that realization.
  23. I remember when the G League team was announced, there were some prognostications that it would kill the Riverkings. I had no idea that it was actually happening. Does anyone know if the basketball team being in the arena created the final nails in the coffin?
