That looked like the Dawgs last year except your power play is too good.

Coach may have openly said the wrong thing about the games early season that doesn't mean anything. Winning games later and making the playoffs is what counts. He actually right. All pro teams have that theory. I'm giving him a chance to figure it out and let's see what happens in the playoffs. I've seen teams in this league who were towards the bottom of the playoffs make it deeper into the playoffs than those at the top. Just ask the Antz from last season.

Or the Antz from 2012\13 season.

He is right in a certain sense.  I agree you want to be playing your best hockey at the end of the season.  But stinking it up at the beginning of the season puts you in a hole.  Your goal is to get a good seed and have home ice advantage as far as you can throughout the playoffs.   I would much rather play 2 games on your home ice then 2 on the opposing city's.  The only x factor this year will be the new playoff system.  If your playing great in the end and have a huge streak to get one of the lower seeds, just maybe the better teams will skip over you.  I got a feeling the team thats unavailable to have a home game for a certain date is going to get picked on if possible.  But in no way would I say the first of the seasons games are meaningless.  They all add up the same way in the win and loss column.  How often you hear a coach winning at the beginning of the season say how meaningless the games they are playing are?

It looks as if the Marksmen will be heading into the weekend with only 15 skaters as opposed to the normal 17.  I agree with keeping 3 goalies for now because Zenzola needs another chance when they get the defense sorted out.

That's their problem, then; the whole concept of having a 19-man roster is to have enough players to dress when a player is ill or injured but not long enough to go on the IR. That's why there are less 3-game tryouts allotted to each team this season as well.

I dont see why they would have cut Skudalski if they didnt already have a replacement for him.  Unless he got in trouble or they just decided to part ways.  You guys ever sign anybody for Robertson when he was called up?  We played a lot of games short last year but it was never because we cut one of our players without having a replacement.  It was either somebody getting hurt or a player got called up.  But now is not the time to be cutting defensemen.  You guys are short 1 or 2.  Evansville had a post where they were short.  Peoria posted they only had 4 in Dave's latest post.  Roanoke is short.  We already had defenseman Brian Rowland on the IR.  Then another Dman Sova got hurt and it didnt look good.  Then the same game Mueller got hurt and he was playing Forward and Defense.  Its crazy half the league is short dmen, yet Pensacola is still signing them with the additions of Alex Pompeo from Norfolk and Cody Castro who played with Mississippi last year.  Makes their total to 8 defensemen.  So either Pensacola grabbing them all up for some tradebait to find some more offense or they just collecting extra ones so nobody else can get to them.  But hopefully we will see some signings tomorrow or we both going to be playing short dmen.

We had 7 dmen, Robertson got called up and left us 6......then he got hurt and still in the ECHL. We cut Love, signed McCauley, now cut Skudalski (its about time).......so we have 5 at this point. Maybe coach will have someone signed by game time tomorrow.

:wth:. Marksmen.  I just checked transactions.  We switched defenseman Rowland from the 21 to the 30 day IR.  Defenseman Sova put on 21 day IR.  Then we waived another one of our defenseman Hickey.  Not sure why none of this was on the Dawgs social media or Dawgs Talk Blog.  They must think we dont need much defense against you guys.  We have to have some players coming, those moves leave us with 4 defensemen.  Cant believe you let those moves get passed me until 11pm.  We shall see tomorrow whats going on.

Maybe both coaches agreed to 4\5 dmen for both teams the whole game. Maybe there will be some signings tomorrow.

Good luck to the newest Marksmen, Gavin Yates.  

At this point it's anybody's guess if the Oleg Shipitsyn signing will get announced-- again.

Former Marksmen PJ Hefferin and Taylor Love have signed with teams in the FHL.

Marksmen sign new defenseman, Oleg Shipitsyn. Good plus ratings & pretty steady stats. Looks like a good size guy.

Another FHL player with no SPHL experience. We'll see what happens. For some reason, our organization seems to believe that the FHL is a development league for the SPHL.:eyes:

 

Ok, it took me all of 3mins to find a player from the E.

The Shipitsyn signing is on hold evidently. It was announced on the Marksmen web site last week and then quickly removed. His name was on the Marksmen roster for last week's games but he wasn't on the bench. The SPHL never announced it.  Shipitsyn was held out of his games last weekend by Danville.  On the podcast from Tuesday night Ben Garrod / Communications and Social Media Manager said that they would be announcing 2 signing Wednesday or Thursday.

With the player moves they are down to 17 on the roster.  They have 4 D-men listed.

Reason behind Oleg not playing was because he was a vet.....Hausy and Nails combined with Oleg would of put us over 1100 limit.

Looks like your coach has a pipeline bringing them in from the northeast.  His old stomping grounds.
