A wee thought of a player perhaps no-one is thinking about Bryan Cameron. Is there any chance he could coming back? Natural 2nd line centre, and another right hand shot.
Yeah I have thought about giving Cameron a shot at a full season We obviously didn't see him at his best with his injury and 9 points in 11 games suggests he could do well in this league The down side is that we are already taking a risk on a player coming back from a long injury, do we want to do it with two I wouldn't mind him, let's see what a fit Cameron can do
And this IMO immediately puts paid to any rubbish that Dutiaume puts out that the jump to the Elite is too big anymore Yes Brown has been playing in North America and really he should still be playing there as he is that good He is probably GB best prospect at this age and there is no way that Steelers have signed him to be on a two with Steeldogs, he is far too good for that level and the standard he was at in North America is better than Steeldogs
Hockey players talk to each other, ask each other about places they have played. I can't see many giving positive feedback on fife. From the management all the way to the fans. Run like a Mickey Mouse organization, Stone Age ice arena, evening training, having to over play due to lack of brits that can play at elite level, keyboard warrior fans that take to social media to cut down players. Etc. just some examples. Can have all the budget we want but if players don't want to come here we are stuck with the same thing every year. Players say what we want to hear to start off on the right foot and not ruffle feathers, would love to hear what they actually think.
As for next season I really don't see any returning , maybe 1 or 2 if that. Budget will be brought down , gonna see younger NCAA or Low end echl. Single guys to cut on housing and cars. Sure kitty's like the sound of that. We are so behind on the other teams unless they are going to blow our minds with 5-10 signings in one day haha.
I don't think that is totally accurate though.
Players have consistently said what a great place it is to play in Fife and the majority have not had a bad word to say about the Flyers, not in public anyway, and if you hear new players, who have said that they have done their homework on the Flyers, when they sign they all say that they have heard nothing but good things from former players. Now that could easily be lip service for the media and fans but I don't think so. I genuinely believe that players are really looked after by this club when they come here. There are too many of them have said that they have really enjoyed their time at the Flyers for some of it not to be the truth
I also disagree about your comment about the Stone Age arena. Once again many players love this building because it is so old and you don't get places like this anymore, probably not anywhere in the world and players do genuinely prefer buildings like this to the atmosphere less arenas. You should have heard TJ Caig and Ryan Dingle when they first came here and how much they loved this building when they first saw it
It also not true about the evening/late night training. Flyers now have first choice of when they want the ice for training and how often they want it
The revamped Scottish Cup will be up and running this year over the weekend of September 9 and 10 with two semi finals, a third/fourth place game and a final It will be held at Murrayfield this year, Fife next year, Dundee in 2019 and Braehead in 2020 Cause we don't get see enough of each other as it is do we?
Is he not still the assistant coach at the Manitoba Moose?
Your right though he is not coming back over here.
No I never thought that he would come back here either but I heard from two people that are usually very reliable so thought I would at least put it out there Matsos has quit a good job and looks like he is coming back here
The thing that would probably make it credible for Morrison would be the long term possibility of being involved with Black at Nottingham with a view to the London job in the KHL, if that ever happens, but there are too many ifs just now for that to happen
I wouldn't be surprised if prices went up but I don't think that they will go up as much as Dundees', we have a little bit more room for maneuver as our prices haven't gone up as often as Dundees' have.
Next season Stars are charging £495 for a 31 game season which works out at £15.97 per game up from £363 for 26 games or £13.97 per game
Walk up prices are £18 for adults,£13 concession, £10 child or student and £46 for a family of 4
They are looking for an investment of £50,000 but are not for sale as such but would be willing to listen to serious offers for the club.
I would think Flyers may put up their walk up prices.
Thing is clubs like Dundee and ourselves who are run by successful businessmen aren't able to put long term, sustainable business plans in place as the model for the league seems to change every summer.
Apparently when Dundee joined they were asked to put a 5 year plan in place, I would assume the same was asked for us, but at the time the import number was 10 so wouldn't it make sense for Stars to do a 5 year business plan based on that number, or not see it being changed as drastically as it has. How can you run a business and make plans for it if the rules keep changing every year and costs keep spiralling up?
For the second year in a row Falcons have reached the final of the national U20s after an 8-2 win over Kingston Sharks in yesterdays first semi final in Dumfries.
Goals from Chad Smith, Scott Jamieson, Martyn Simson, Garry Simson 2, Jamie Crawford, Aaron Robertson and Caly Robertson saw the Falcons comprehensively through to meet the EIHA champions, Coventry Blaze after they beat Aberdeen Lynx 5-3 in the second semi final
Apparently some arena team fans aren't happy that the three little Scottish teams have gotten their way and will be boycotting away matches North of the border.
They don't come anyway, unless it's a double or triple header, and as we are a gate based club and the league keep saying that every individual team has to look after it's own business model, we did that and went for three conferences of four and are now getting slated for it.
Balance of power has changed in the league now with more rink based teams than arena teams and the arena teams aren't going to get their own way anymore
