Minor - Pro in Canada

I am curious why leagues are forever trying to make hockey work in the Southern US. Why aren't there more minor leagues taking shape in Canada and the Northern US? Off the top of my head I can think of several markets where pro hockey would work that don't have teams. The many former AHL markets in...

What? Who?

I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it would be nice if this one one was based on more than 1 game played between a team that may squeak into the playoffs as an 8 seed (Richmond) and the worst team in the league (Roanoke). I can assure you that this match-up does not represent the le...

Daytona & Ricmond teams.

Like I said it was a rumor. Hopefully they will still be around next year. I have heard Daytona Beach might be coming to the SPHL next year too. That would be great to have 3 Fl teams maybe that would help better with a fan base having three teams to compete interstate I have it on good authority t...

Drug Induced Fantasies And Hallucinations?

Ok, now we're starting to veer back into drug induced fantasies and hallucinations. What CHL team is close enough to the SPHL to make a go of it? Besides Richmond and Roanoke, what UHL teams could hack the travel? ECHL teams dropping down?-the "success" of Pee Dee kind of shoots a hole in that theo...

Sphl

The SPHL has a far more feasible budget then the UHL, ECHL, and Central League. In fact you will probably see teams from those leagues join the SPHL.

Kids?

The mandate of the league is to have 12 teams only. That is the one of the selling points that the expansion committe is making; but I guess anything is possible. When I was 16, 17, 18 - I was only 160 lbs. I would be surprised if anyone in Major Junior Hockey in Canada is less than that. In fact I ...

New Teams - Slashed Budgets

Looks like Daytona Beach, and Richmond will be in next year. Assuming the UHL pulls out of Richmond, that a propective owner already has his application in for that location. Pee Dee is completely revisited, has a new owner and a new budget, and a strong marketing campaign for "group sales" next yea...

UHL - Bad compared to the ECHL?

The ECHL, for the most part is for players on the way up. The UHL is for players who never got drafted, for good reasons perhaps, and are too old for the ECHL. You seldom see guys in the ECHL for very long. This is due to the fact that they never got another contract from the NHL team that drafted t...

Arena pricing! ...... & Brubaker!

The economic feasibility of the SPHL, and it's franchises, is based on an econimic model that is quite different than the ECHL, UHL, or Cent., as I understand it - most teams pay in the area of .50 cents per seat - based on seating capacity. As far as Jeff Brubaker is concerned: I wouln't count him ...
