  1. Looks like some SPHL level players are signing in the Fed. Is that an indication that the SPHL season may be delayed or in limbo compared to the Fed?
  2. Physicality and emotional hockey make a better product despite lesser actual hockey skill. The lower the level of hockey, the more elements of good vs. evil are needed for entertainment(somewhat of a pro wrestling mentality). The FPHL seems to have more of that than the SPHL. The SPHL has begun taking itself way too seriously.
  3. I know the talent is worse, especially defensively; but why do you think their overall product is distinctly worse? I think as a product at this level, they offer better entertainment.
  4. Hell, I'm sure everything is witty to your simplemindedness.
  5. I wish the SPHL still had interesting hockey games like this. Sanitized hockey by mediocre players in a league that believes it is developmental in nature is really not interesting. I think I would prefer to watch the Fed at this point.
  6. I guess I don't understand why buying a team insulates him from all criticism, but ok.
  7. Hate it for the fans of Fayetteville. Your owner seems like a crap bag, though.
  8. I would like a retraction and a statement clarifying that my answer was mediocre at minimum.
  9. 1. So fast that he floats above the ice. 2. Somebody on the bench called his name. 3. Everyone has a system, even if it's just random movement.
  10. I'd rather not go into detail, as I observed him in a non-public area where most people cant see and he deserves some privacy. I just saw a reaction beyond just losing a tough game. And no, it was not out of line or concerning or anything along those lines. I just thought he appeared stressed beyond routine.
  11. Is Bremner in hot water? His reaction and the team reaction last night was one of a coach/team in a bad spot.
  12. Marcus is a good complementary player, but you dont have anyone to bring out what he can do. He cant create on his own.
  13. How do you guys keep getting worse? I saw your team roll out and thought these guys should be really tough to play against now. I"m not sure your defense is atrocious, by the way. As I watched, I realized you had no offensive threats and no playmakers. Your offense never holds possession which makes your defense goes for extended periods of time under pressure. Your entire team does turn the puck over in some pretty bad ways. Your lack of offense makes your defense look worse than it is. I don't understand your team, though. Are they tough? Are they physical? Are they fast? Are they intelligent? What is their identity? I'm not sure what Roanoke is trying to accomplish with their team. Hope you guys figure it out soon.
  14. I was surprised that Bachnak was not the least bit interested in any of the rough stuff.
  15. He is good, but I don't see "legendary". In all fairness, Knoxvilles defense is mostly thoroughly incompetent. Ross is an upgrade on Jones, and Walsh makes an effort to stop players from skating straight down the middle to take point blank shots at the goalie. That's a major improvement.
