  1. All I wanted to see was improvement, and I think that was accomplished last night. Still sloppy in their own end, and I’m starting to think Klein just isn’t adjusting to our defense, he’s been kind of bad lately. But Stiliadis has been great. Once they get used to playing with each other I think we’ll see better results, and maybe a playoff run, but there’s no way in hell this team is going to be top 4.
  2. Yeah it doesn't really detail any specifics in the report. It might end up being nothing huge.
  3. Yeah that's one of the ones I got. I'm pretty sure my dad must have gotten it for me. Funny, I was about 12 or so at the time but it's still fairly big on me.
  4. Then I guess I can throw all notions of it being an on ice incident out the window. That's unfortunate. Best of luck to him getting through whatever it is he has to.
  5. I just started collecting them seriously a few years back and it started with some odd Special Edition Express jerseys, but moved into NHL stuff, and some other minor league stuff. I've got about 20-25 or so thus far. Some of the notables: Roanoke Express 9/11 commemorative (01-02) Roanoke Express Mardi Gras (03-04) Roanoke Express Maroon alternate and white jerseys (03-04) Roanoke Express black road jersey (96-97) Roanoke Valley Vipers black jersey (05-06, my least favorite one) Detroit Red Wings Winter Classic (13-14) Detroit Red Wings Centennial Classic (16-17) Detroit Red Wings red home, both Reebok and Adidas cut Detroit Red Wings white road, Adidas Pittsburgh Penguins "Robo Penguin" Third (97-98?) Buffalo Sabres "Angry Goat" black road jersey (99-00) Anaheim Ducks Orange third (15-16) Dallas Stars Green "Star" jersey (99-00) Carolina Hurricanes third (18-19)
  6. I collect jerseys and I’ve been meaning to add a Dawgs jersey to it, but as you said there’s just a massive drop in quality in our replica merch when compared to the rest of the league. I mean I’m not spending $120 on a crappy sublimated jersey with a patch glued on (that’ll likely fall off after a couple of years), when I could spend less than that on a Reebok Premier or CCM on eBay, or buy a blank Adidas Adizero from the site for $90. Even the crappy Fanatics jerseys are better quality. I agree that our color scheme and direction looks a bit cluttered, and I absolutely cannot stand that one triangle of red on the collar of the jerseys. I’m also really tired of the Montreal Canadiens alternate we have. I’d love to see something different next year. I love the new CCM style RYD stuff though. Whoever thought of that deserves a raise. That being said, I’ve come to really like the current home digs, and I think we’re the only team in the league using royal blue and gold, so there’s a clear identity present, but I’m not a big fan of the robins egg color as the secondary blue. I’d love to see a navy with that, kind of like St. Louis. At least our uniforms aren’t lazy and uninteresting like Birmingham, using a recycled logo, on a recolored Ducks jersey, with the same exact logo on the shoulder.
  7. I wonder what Sherwood did to get suspended
  8. I miss Nate O’Brien. He had some speed and was a great skater. I’m not sure on the timeline for Mac Jansen, but it’d be great to have him back soon. Something is going to have to be done soon. But with the core of this team established and no big names to pick up, I’m just wondering where we’re actually going to find the players to fix this team. We can only go dumpster diving in the FHL so much.
  9. Agreed. We spent half the game killing penalties tonight. I legitimately feel bad for Klein. He’s a better goalie than his numbers are showing this year.
  10. Well we played one decent period tonight. Honestly this team is tough to watch. They’re just taking bad penalties left and right and they let up right after they score. I’ve been giving Bremner the benefit of the doubt because I genuinely respect the man, but as far I’m concerned he’s on the chopping block if the team keeps playing like this. It’s been nothing but goon sh*t out there thus far, while we get outskilled and outplayed by every other team in the league.
  11. It's kind of BS but I can live with it. He'll likely be in the lineup Saturday night. It does suck not having that grit when we play Knoxville though.
