A loss sucks no matter, huh? Pointstreak want updating correctly. Who was in net?

lmao. The question isnt who was in net.  It should be how many times were they both in net.  But Barone started then Zenzola replaced him then Barone came back in and replaced Zenzola again.  Both gave up 5 goals a piece.

Id rather lose 3-2 than 10-0......considering both teams that lost those 2 games are now tied for 8th.....yes Dawgs are doing better this year, but Fay won't go away without a fight.

 

Me too when i have to suffer through watching it.  But after its over its just like any loss.  Take your lumps, learn from it, and forget about it.  I was in no way notching a place in the playoffs for us.  I was just joking with marksmenartist.  We have in no way proven we can play with the top teams in the league.  I think we have improved drastically, but then have a game like this and its a wake up call that your not as good as you thought you were. :dizzy:

Me too, but the way its looking that will take a miracle for us both to make it.  A way bigger miracle to somehow play each other.  The one thing i dont understand from the league is that they are trying to make rivals with who you play so much.  So why have we just now finished about 1/2 of the season and already played each other 10 times.  Peoria will be more of our rival by the end of the season playing them 4 games in a row to finish the season.  Dont like they made our games so top heavy.  Or the fact you play any team you hardly play 4 times in a row.  You could be hitting a team at a good or bad time.  Not sure when our last 3 games are against each other but im sure our rosters will be totally different by the end of the season so why not spread them all out a little better?  I hear traveling expenses but if that the case why are we constantly playing home and home series a weekend?

Your allowed 17 skaters but one has to be a healthy scratch and play with only 16 in the game.  Your mention of  Jake Schultz, he is also a defenseman who isnt really expected to put up a lot of points.  He also plays on a regular shift every game.  Another thing about Drobot, I dont really look at plus/minus as a valuable stat.  But when your -17 and second worst on your team and doesnt play anymore then he does has to tell you something.  I do agree with you that everyone needs a player willing to drop the gloves for your team.  Id just like to have one that skates on a regular shift and not just thrown in when he needs to take care of something.  But like you said, its hard to find a Dennis Sicard these days.  He is by far the best enforcer skilled player in the league.  Probably the biggest reason he is still doing it at his age.  

 

If I was jealous of a teams enforcer it would be Dennis Sicard.  Not Drobot, sorry to burst your bubble.

As Greg keeps talking about biernes ... the guy that lead his team to LAST in the sphl last year.  Yes, it’s pathetic

Get your facts right we finished 9th and not last.  We were also an expansion team just like Evansville who did finish last and just like Birmingham this year who is in last.  Plus we had a lot more problems then Beirnes.  We only had Beirnes for 16 games at the end of the season because he was injured until then.  In the 6 players we got in the expansion draft Armstrong and Boyle were lost to call ups and finished their seasons in the ECHL.  Another was Steve Mele who got injured a few games into the season and only played 29 games in the beginning and end of our season. Another one was Lamacchia who we traded for Riley Spraggs who ended up playing only 8 games for us because of injuries.  That left us with Jackson Brewer and Ryan de Melo and de Melo was even injured for a good part of the season.  Which leads me to the Dawgs had the most call ups to the ECHL in the league and the most lost games due to injuries to the team.  Those are all facts, unlike you spouting out things that are only real in your head with no facts to back anything up.

How is that 10-0 final with Knoxville going?

It was one goal worse than the 9-0 a** kicking we were handed by Macon back on December 16th which was the night after the 10-2 debacle against the same Macon team.  That was a very bad weekend.

Yeah yeah yeah.... excuses excuses excuses.   What’s your excuse for being near bottom of the standings AGAIN this season?

and since you like facts so much, look at the fact that y’all lost 10-0 tonight.

Yeah, the Dawgs are more pretenders than contenders.  We all know that already.

I see this thread going in a negative direction and I am issuing the one and only warning, before it may get out of hand, to please keep the conversation civil and do not act as an agitator.

Thank you!

Common vernacular among sports fans, showing their commitment to a particular team.  Nothing wrong with empathy once in awhile.
