  1. What I miss about the newspaper articles whether it was Nick Gates or Kathy Gierer or even what Eminian is still doing in Peoria is stories beyond who scored when. I know what happened at the games. I either watched in person or on SPHL live. I don't want a recap which is what you get with brief TV coverage or press releases from the team. I realize I'm a bit of a dinosaur in that I still subscribe to 2 print newspapers . There are some interesting things done at the Sin Bin. Where else can we find in depth stuff on the SPHL?
  2. And he had 2 goals and an assist including the game winning goal in overtime for Jacksonville. May not see him for a long time.
  3. I just went to the Evansville newspaper to read about the game. Guess what? They are now part of the USA Today Network and they haven't had an article about the Thunderbolts since October. What does USA Today have against minor league hockey? I haven't checked but have any other SPHL teams had the same problem Evansville and Knoxville have with no local coverage of games?
  4. This may explain why 5 different SPHL teams have had callups to Norfolk in the last 3 days. They may anticipate losing contracted players.
  5. It needs a better search mechanism. There is a search archives under news and press releases but I couldn't find what I wanted. Why is there nothing on the website about the Dash auction for the blackout jerseys that starts Monday? Yes I found it here on the boards but it should be on the website.
  6. Flegal has been released by South Carolina. I don't know if anyone else will claim him but if not he could be headed here. Since their season starts at the end of the week even if he does come to Knoxville I'll bet he will get called up when they get call ups or injuries.
  7. Thanks for the update Karyn. We're still in your old seats enjoying Knoxville hockey. Tell the Nestle bunny he did good.
  8. With the exception of the very first year of the Ice Bears they have always chosen a first year head coach. I don't think that's the way to go but maybe that's all they think they can afford. At this point in the year I have to think they had someone in mind before they pulled the trigger.
  9. Head Coach?

    Bechard may very well be announced as Coach but he was in the process, if the Snakes had survived, of turning over the coaching duties to Orrin Hergott. I guess if you need a job ...
  10. For most IRs it isn't the date he was put on IR it's retroactive to the day after he played his last game. So yeah he can come off IR but he doesn't have to be put on the active roster. Billett could have played last week but Mikey didn't want to rush him. He wanted to make sure he was ready.
  11. Since Metcalfe was on a 3 game contract with Nov 18 being game 3 can't we skate 2 short instead of 3?
  12. If Knoxville wasn't playing Huntsville this weekend I'd wear my Educate jersey. He's a great kid. Kudos to the Havoc for signing him.
  13. He's also the dude who got a shutout in his first pro game. The pointstreak guy in Roanoke got it wrong. Charles Grant played in both of the Ice Bears first games.

  15. Sicard

    Unless he has an interested third vet I see no reason to choose Fulton over Sicard. Fulton had his best year for us last year but he is not worth a vet spot. I was floored when he was listed on the All Time Ice Bear roster. Were they listening to their heart and not their head? In no way does Fulton belong on the All Time Roster. Looks like Corey Fulton is going to be a junior coach in Chesapeake, VA according to a post in the Ice Bears Fan Page on Facebook and by Coach Craigen on the MemBears Facebook page. I have no idea what Craigen plans to do about his vets, but we're getting close to the season and should know in a month or so.
