  1. I noticed that McMartin's misconduct penalty has been changed from safety equipment violation to verbal abuse of official misconduct. Add another to Krasnichumps list. Fayetteville - Brandon McMartin - (Verbal Abuse of Officials) (Misconduct), 10 MIN, 16:42
  2. Speaking of traded/released KNX players-We've been pleased with Brandon McMartin so far. 5 games, 4 goals, 2 assists and a +10 rating. Not a bad exchange for FC.
  3. I was at the game. Interesting exchange after period 2. The 2 linesmen were at the FAY bench, one was talking with Kallechy and the other standing 2 feet away. Krasnichuk was a few feet away. After maybe 30 seconds Krasnichuk grew tired of the conversation and signaled for his 2 linesmen to follow him (one obviously saw his let's go motion) to the dressing room. They ignored him and stayed at the FAY bench. Krasniichuk stopped on the ice near the entrance to the tunnel to wait on his linesmen. After another 30 seconds or so he blows his whistle and waved at his linesmen to follow him to the dressing room. One of the linesmen saw him but ignored him. The other was still engaged in conversation. After another 30 seconds or so the 2 linesmen skated toward Krasnichuk and they left the ice. His blowing his whistle at his linesmen and waving them off the ice speaks to his control mentality. The linesmen ignoring him was priceless.
  4. McCormick should be back in the line-up today. He was a healthy scratch last night.
  5. From Thomas Pope's twitter Thomas Pope @FO_ThomasPope More Remember, the @Marksmen_Hockey play at 3 pm today - and it’ll mark the debut of Sam Wilbur, whom they had obtained in a trade but was w/#ECHL Rapid City. ct message
  6. Mr Ed was one of my favorite shows growing up. As an adult I learn he was really a Zebra. It think that still accounts for some of my trust issues.https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/mister-ed-zebra/ Speaking of Zebras, Erik Krasnichuk was the ref in Fayetteville last night. Turrible.
  7. I was disappointed to read Kallechy's quote in the paper on the goal situation. He said, "You get volunteers for off-ice officials and they make mistakes." Excuse me but I believe your team had 2 too many men on the ice penalties with both contributing to power play goals in the game. So paid employees make mistakes too, right? I believe the gentleman in question has been a goal judge for a while now and believe his accuracy percentage is probably high. The referee is ultimately responsible for calling a goal and he is a paid employee and in this case the ref was standing in the perfect spot to see if the puck crossed the line. The ref immediately gave the no goal sign but in the end he wasn't willing to stick with what his own eyes saw.
  8. Social media is ablaze with goal or no goal. Video should be forthcoming. Thomas Pope says it was a bad call to award the goal to QC. Bus League Hockey says the puck never crossed the line. All I can add is that the Ref was in perfect position and couldn't have been more than 20 ft. away from the goal when he waved the goal off originally as play continued.
  9. Peoria has signed Mitchell McPherson to an ATO on March 3 and again on March 11. So multiple ATO's are possible as are PTO's (see Osaka). A single ATO or PTO contract is limited to 3 games.
  10. Challenge: Today they announced Pi has been calculated out to 31.4 trillion decimal places. Ready, set, go.
  11. Coach mentioned on the coaches show that White had to get back to college soon. I take it he wouldn't be available for the playoffs. If I'm looking at the roster correctly Tatrn's spot will be filled with Wilbur or Osaka. Coach also mentioned he would have to talk with WIlbur to see if they could reach a "mutual agreement" about him coming in.
  12. I agree. In Fayetteville they started a weekly coaches show back in January. Now there's no need for fans to have to speculate on what is going on with the team. The coach fills us in on what is going on. Without a coaches show or something similar we as fans either speculate (this forum is a great place for it) or we just sit back and admire how good the boys look in their sweaters.
  13. I think if Wilbur clears waivers and makes it to Fayetteville this weekend he'll be in the line-up. Coach traded for his rights for a reason. He'll want to get him in the flow so to speak to get him ready for the playoffs IMO. Interesting question about whether Osaka and White have to be in the line-up by rule- I don't know the answer. Like Vette mentioned if someone is banged up -wink- wink- maybe they could go on IR. It's a good place for the team to be in- too much talent vs too little.
  14. If he clears waivers it'll be interesting to see who Kallechy cuts to make room for him. He is a center and out of these 4 we all know who would have to go if a center goes-- Hauswirth, Keilich, Mazurek, Tatrn
  15. I get the feeling Bus League enjoys covering train wrecks. The FHL has a history of being one "wreck" after another. In today's world the sensational gets more eyeballs, more eyeballs mean more ad rev. SPHLRando, I think is who was doing some SPHL write ups early on on Bus League but he seems to have disappeared (a twitter search for his handle comes up with nothing). I can just imagine the 3 BLH writers were doing virtual high-fives when they saw they were mentioned on ESPN.com and I wouldn't blame them. Good for them at such a young age for going out and doing something rather than sitting around playing video games all day (my grandson).
  16. I like Osaka and wish there was a place for him. If Kallechy was to put Osaka on a SPC he would need to let Tatrn (he has sat out 4 of last 6 games) or maybe Price (sat out the last 2 games) go. After 5 1/2 months with these guys Kallechy knows who will help the most come playoff time. If Osaka can have a big weekend against QC maybe he will get put on a SPC.
  17. Jorge Alves is an equipment manager for the Carolina Hurricanes. In 2016 he played the last 7.6 seconds in a game as a goaltender for the Hurricanes. In January, 2011 he served 2 days as the EBUG (emergency goalie) for the Fireantz (source: Fireantz roster & transactions on pointstreak). This is an obscure example but it's one answer to the original question. He did pass through Fayetteville and did play with the "big boys" -sorta, kinda. The experts on here will correct me if I'm wrong but I think that Scott Darling is the only player to have played in the SPHL and the NHL. The SPHL website lists Alex Gallant (Columbus Cottonmouth) as "with the Vegas Golden Knights". According to eliteprospects.com Gallant has not played a regular season game in the NHL.
  18. "Some people actually get a few hours sleep before their next day of work begins. You should try it sometime - gives you a whole new perspective on life." This comment is not even close to being appropriate for this forum. Why would a forum member care how much sleep another member gets? Let the man post without ridicule.. For one I enjoy Rapidfire's posts. It's commonly referred to as discussion. Discuss his post or not but worthless personal "cuteness" or "cleverness" is a waste . Just MHO, of course.
  19. Evansville Thunderbolts Hockey‏ @evvthunderbolts FollowingFollowing @evvthunderbolts More #BREAKING NEWS from the Evansville Thunderbolts: Forward Nick D'Avolio has been traded to the Birmingham Bulls.
  20. Can't speak to the issue but take it from someone who goes to some games in Fayetteville yours is a nice problem to have. I hope it works out for all. Two games this year in FAY when the attendance was announced over a thousand there was more like 400 in the seats. It's nice to be able to walk up and get tix but no fun watching a game with so few fans in the stands.
  21. Evansville reminds me of a team I watched last year.
  22. Cody Porter just shut out Peoria in Peoria. LOL. We had him at one time.
  23. 1st 21 games -- 7-11-3 Next 13 games -- 11-1-1 Last 11 games -- 2-5-4 The final 11 games -- ?????
  24. McMartin was claimed by Florida.
  25. They mentioned on the coaches show that " a college kid would be coming in for a couple of weeks as back up goalie and then he had to get back to college" Not sure why he'd have to go back but coach expects Perry back in a couple of weeks. I didn't think of Jeke or Fregeau playing forward-- good point.
