This might be more relavant than first realized. Don't be surprised if failed UHL teams reappear in the SPHL in the upcoming years. The financial framework of the SPHL is much more workable for smaller markets than is that of the UHL. Keep in mind that a team can't jump from the UHL to the SPHL with...

Regarding the Icebears players selected: Obviously Bermingham, who is the brother of the Icebears coach, won't report, as he planned on retiring after last season's championship. As for Akright, he was retired and living in Knoxville as of last year, and came out of retirement to help out the bears ...

Divisions Help Knoxville

I was just perusing the list of teams in each division. Unless I am mistaken that will mean that the other teams in Knoxville's division are a combined 1-14 in thier last 15 games against the Icebears in Knoxville.

Comments about comments, etc

The Va team has drifted from about a 75% certainty to about a 90% certainty. Perhaps higher. Keep in mind that until they start skating nothing is certain, however things are going well. Lets just say that the powers that be think it's going to happen and they are working based on that assumption. R...

You need to have an icemaker in addition to having a barn (and I believe the place is literally a barn). That was my point. There might be places that could hold a hockey rink, but there isn't one that has everything nescesarry already in place, which is what SPHL teams need, as they are not able t...

Re: Knoxville's barn

I visited Knoxville this year and that barn is a great place to watch a game. The seats (with the exception of the endzones) are great and have good sightlines. They are close to the ice, the fans can DEFINATELY be heard. It might be old, the seats are wooden, but you feel like a hockey fan in there...

No Ice in Chattanooga

It was mentioned that Chattanooga is too close to Knoxville to be a viable SPHL option. Having discussed this with some persons in the organization, they would LOVE to have a team in Chattanooga however there is really no place to play. The places that exist in Chattanooga don't have facilities for ...
