  1. Dawgs fans did you see where Goz was suspended by Norfolk? Would he help your D? Edited to add: All I can add about Alex Adams is that he was in an ECHL camp this fall.
  2. It has been stated on this forum before that the announced attendance is actual tickets sold not butts in the seats. Not sure if that's true but it could explain why the difference.
  3. She has been re-branded. She's here but not as rah-rah. On another note-- at 2k fans a night (current ave after 5 games) that comes to 56k for the year. Last year was 83,699. Mr. Calculator says that is roughly a 33% drop. It's still early- maybe the colder weather will get more people in the arena. Edited to add: IMHO 6:00 pm start times on a Saturday night are a bad idea.
  4. Does anyone else think the goalie, Murray should've been credited with an assist on the 3rd FAY goal. The way I remember it Murray cleared the puck to Mazurek. Mazurek took the puck down the ice and blasted a shot between the eyes of the goalie, the rebound went off the boards to McCormick who then scored. Mazurek got the only assist. I'd like to see a replay just to see where I went wrong. I guess the score keeper can determine that the goalies pass "did not assist" in the goal.
  5. I was surprised by the low attendance. There was only a couple of HS football games in the area, I believe. Chilly but good weather. Not sure what is going on. Maybe tonight with the 6:00 start more people will show up.
  6. I'm against a merger of the two leagues. Talent wise just to give an example of the difference. Last night Austin Daae scored 3 goals on 4 shots and had 3 assists in his first 2018/19 FHL game. He had been odd man out with Birmingham in the SPHL the first month of the season and eventually cut. I know that's a small sample size but if you follow other ex-SPHLer's to the FHL you'll see big differences in stats.
  7. Marksmen by a mile. The old mascot was creepy. Marky is the best.
  8. The two teams looked evenly matched to me. Fayetteville's goalie, Murray made 6 to 8 excellent saves to keep his team in the game. I'm concerned about Hauswirth. He looks slow to me- hopefully he's playing through an injury and he'll come around soon..
  9. Sean Kaserosky scores his first goal for Quad City 2:31 into his first game. Came on the power play. Good for him.
  10. Pulde leaves Peoria with a 2 year record of 8-0-3. Not too shabby.
  11. From the article-----"The Rivermen are 14-2-1 all-time against Fayetteville in Peoria, and had a nine-game win streak here snapped. ..." Just to set the record straight only 16 games have been played between the Peoria team and Fayetteville in Peoria. The Rivermen are now 13-2-1 all-time against Fayetteville in Peoria and had an eight game winning streak snapped. Below you'll find all games played between the 2 teams in Peoria according to the SPHL official web site. On another note: The two teams have been almost evenly matched in Fayetteville with Peoria holding a slight advantage over 17 games played. Peoria is 9-5-3 vs 8-5-4 for Fayetteville. Peoria visits the Crown on Nov 30 and Dec 1 this year. Feb 14, 2014 Peoria won 3-0 Feb 15, 2014 Peoria won 5-3 Feb 27, 2015 Peoria lost 3-4 regulation Feb 28, 2015 Peoria won 6-3 Mar 1, 2015 Peoria won 9-2 Jan 29, 2016 Peoria won 4-2 Jan 30, 2016 Peoria lost 1-4 Jan 31, 2016 Peoria won 6-2 1 Mar 31, 2017 Peoria won 5-1 2 Apr 1, 2017 Peoria won 2-0 3 Apr 2, 2017 Peoria won 4-1 4 Feb 16, 2018 Peoria won 3-2 regulation 5 Feb 17, 2018 Peoria won 7-3 6 Feb 18, 2018 Peoria won 8-1 7 Nov 9, 2018 Peoria won 6-5 OT 8 game winning streak Nov 10, 2018 Peoria lost 5-6 OT
  12. Worcester thinks he is good enough for a call up
  13. Glad to see John Schiavo kick Fayetteville's ass. Hauswirth with one shot on goal. Like was said above changes are needed.
  14. Fayetteville has a grim history in Peoria. In the 5 year history Peoria holds a 12-2-0 record on home ice with 66 goals scored vs 28 against. Peoria is on a 7 game win streak against FAY at home. The Marksmen will need toughness and plenty of other stuff to turn things around.
  15. Beautiful post. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you, sir.
  16. Excellent question and it's good to see a poster actually wanting to discuss the team on here. So far Sheeran, Casale and maybe Jeke have shown they will be tough if needed. 5 games in it seems the team is not too concerned with being physical possibly due to the coaches philosophy. From this fans standpoint the 3 home games have not been very entertaining due to a lack of physical play combined with a lack of offense (my opinion). I like the fact they don't carry a Drobot type on the roster but after seeing he had his first fight in the E the other night I think I'm starting to miss him.
  17. Ex-Fayetteville players Brandon Lubin and Ross Scherma are now playing for Evansville.
  18. The Marksmen had Henley for a few games last year. He should fit right into the Dion, Economos mold type of guy except on D (17 PIM in 6 games). Just looked at eliteprospects.com on his numbers. I didn't realize he was only 21.
  19. I'm surprised, too. He does have an over the top temper at times. I think he'll get picked up by another team- I wish him well.
  20. Marksmen protected player Max Cook was placed on waivers by Norfolk today. Also, protected Ice Flyer, Brian Morgan was put on waivers by Reading. Morgan had 4 points in one pre-season game a few days ago.
  21. It's possible Brad Harrison, the author had some inside info. At today's practice (Tuesday) there were only 2 goalies on the ice-- #30 & #35. #1 was not on the ice at any point. Hill was in street clothes.
  22. Where are the teams' training camp rosters?
  23. The mods deleted my post for some unknown reason. Why they can defend your inappropriate posts I'll never know. This forum will be shutting down soon. I'm going to beat them to the exit.
  24. Brad Drobot just signed with Wheeling. Didn't see that one coming.
