Wow.... [05 May 2008|04:49pm]

this group hasnt been active in a while. Hey Moderators ~ I'd like to claim the St Louis Bandits (NAHL) and Ohio State University (college)

And since this group says we can talk about the juniors...have to give props to our boys (St Louis Bandits) on winning the NAHL Robertson Cup back-to-back years. The best part was seeing the championship game last night on our home ice. Hell yeah!!

Newbie & Claims [26 Apr 2006|02:24am]

Hey eveyone! I'm new here... I'm Leah but you can call me Princess Leah. I'm normally into the L.A. Kings & Pittsburgh Penguins, but I'm also into some minor hockey teams as well as junior teams, particularly the QMJHL.

My favorite teams are Long Beach Ice Dogs (ECHL), Reading Royals (ECHL), Manchester Monarchs (AHL), Omaha ASB Knights (AHL), Moncton Wildcats (QMJHL), Drummondville Voltigeurs (QMJHL) & Rimouski L'Oceanic (QMJHL).

As for claims, if it's not taken already, I'd love to claim the Long Beach Ice Dogs. If indeed the Ice Dogs are taken, then I'd love to claim Manchester Monarchs. Anyways, thanx a lot and cya around. Take care. :D

I posted a similar messages a couple of days ago about an auction going on in support of Sebastien Savage. This is a guy I knew fairly well, so it definitely touches home a bit. He was the type of player that didn't have the most skill, but always came to the rink with a hard hat and bucket.

I've never been a huge supporter of Don Cherry, but one thing I have always agreed with him on was automatic icing. This incident happened while Savage and an opposing defensman were racing into the corner following the puck. IMO, automatic icing is one of the biggest rules that needs to be inforced in NHL hockey. Just a couple years before, the 67's saw another player, their captain, go down with a serious injury because of the touch-icing rule. He fell knee first into the boards and missed the rest of the season (around Dec/Jan), including the playoffs.

Anyway, I believe that most, if not all auctions end tomorrow around noon!

Can you add the SPHL (the SEHL and WHA2 came together last year) to the claims list?

If you would do so, I claim the Columbus Cottonmouths of the SPHL.

Mods, I hope this is ok, please let me know if its not.

I'm doing a research paper on hazing in sports, focusing on junior hockey (ironically enough the Windsor Spitfire (OHL) case happened just weeks later).

If anyone could answer this survey, that would be greatly appreciated. You can either reply to this post, or if you want to answer it anonymously (and can't do it on this forum), go HERE.

This survey can be done by anyone. Players, coaches, trainers, fans, employees, parents, etc. If possible, state what you are in number 1. I understand there could be some embarrassing stories or some things people may not want to reveal. That is why I am putting it on THIS forum. It allows you to post with a name or anonymously.

The purpose for this survey is for a college research paper on hazing, focusing on but not limited to junior hockey. It will not be published anywhere or shown to anyone but the professor. It's 10 questions and shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes.

surveyCollapse )

Thank you very much to anyone who responds.

Whos the moderator of this community? Just curious?

I'd really like to see this community get up and moving since we're just weeks away from most minor league teams openers. The UHL training camp starts on October 9 - woohoo

I'd also like to claim a few players as well

It's hockey time in Sioux City! [18 Sep 2005|10:45am]

[ mood | accomplished ]

We start the season off Against the Omaha Lancers 9/24. This has always been a NASTY Rivalry. Anyways, our team is very young, but they just went 2-0-1 in the Buc Bowl, a preseason tourney.

Last year we played our first full season in our new arena. It is incredible, but also sucks for two reasons.

The rise in the seating is very gradual, so I do not feel "ontop" of the game as we did in the old audi. In the old audi, it was very enclosed and the rise was very steep, so you could sit in the top row, but still feel like you could touch the ice, and basically look straight down. Also the old Audi, had the smallest ice surface in the USHL. 20 feet shorter than NHL size ice. and 10 narrower. so behind the net you could fit two people at most. Those finesse teams that came here had the roughest time playing their "speed" game. We built our teams tough, and they were hard hitting games. Love that style of play. Rough, tough, knock em on their ass. But now our ice is normal NHL size and our team is geared more for that finesse style which is great to watch, love the beauty of a play created on the moment, turning it into a eye popping goal.

anyways, can't wait until the season starts.

here is our official site, official site, and a great unofficial site. The unofficial site has a huge message board, and many excellent pics, including our new arena, and also when Ruslan Fedotenko (former Sioux City Musketeer) brought the Stanley Cup to Sioux City! Ruslan still lives in the area in the off season (and last year during the lock out) so I caught up with him many times at youth hockey functions. Real down to earth guy.

Hey all, USHL fan here [11 Sep 2005|11:33pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

I have to claim the Sioux City Musketeers here, from the USHL, one of the premireJr A leagues in the nation.

Last year we played Cedar Rapids Roughriders for the Clark Cup, took it to all five games, but lost in the end.
This year we have the youngest team of the year. It will be a tough one, but looking forward to is. Nite all.

Head Coach Bob Woods has left the team to join another Sea Wolves ex-coach, Bruce Boudreau as the new coaching staff for the Hershey Bears of the AHL.

Sea Wolves asst coach Steffon Walby has been promoted to head coach of the team. Best of luck to Coach Walby this season!

Hey everyone! I just found this community, and from the looks of it, it's been pretty slow...but since I'm a minor-league fan, I decided to join and post anyways. My team is the Philadelphia Phantoms, this year's Calder Cup champions, and come next season I'll be a full season ticket holder. My favorite players from the Phantoms are Patrick Sharp, Josh Gratton, and Riley Cote. If anyone ever wants to talk AHL, I'd be glad to. My AIM in on my profile. :)

PS - Can I claim the Phantoms as my team? Thanks!

HI EVERYONE! Im Dana im 15 years old. I am living in Portland Oregon..and a season ticket holder to the Portland Winterhawks (WHL). I also enjoy taking pictures...so i have like 234845908420958million pictures of hockey players in the whl. :D
As some know, in the WHL you can only have three 20 year olds, and then after that year they are gone on their own. Such as Cody McLeod, that just got picked up by the Adirondack Frostbite of the UHL. He was their #1 draft pick recently. They are a very good team and look poised to make a nice long run in the playoffs. He also negotiated with an AHL club but could not come to terms.( beter luck next year!)

So anyways, i dontknow alot about the Adirondack Frostbite..or let alone..the UHL! So im joing this community maybe to learn something about them. ha

Fort Wayne Komets [25 Mar 2005|01:16am]

[ mood | excited ]

Hi all! :) My name is Laurie, I'm 19 years old, and I'm new here. I'm a HUGE fan of the Fort Wayne Komets of the UHL. :) I have to admit that my favorites are Colin Chaulk, Jonathan Goodwin, and Dustin Virag, but they are all freaking *fantastic* players, so more power to all of 'em! :P

Anyway, the K's signed a new goalie, as Kevin St. Pierre is out with a knee injury. So with Tyler Masters as our lead goalie, we nabbed Cory Campbell from the Motor City Mechanics as the new back-up, so I'm looking forward to seeing what's he's like. Anybody know anything about him?

Anyone mind if I claim the Komets? Hope not, because that's my official request for a claim. LOL

I'll be going to both Komet games this weekend, and I hope everyone else's weekend is just as hockey-filled as mine! :P
