The Official Frankfurt Lions Thread

Anyway, Christoph Gawlik signed a 2-year contract with the Lions: http://www.hockeyweb.de/artikel.php?a=36684


By the way zecke26, could you sticky this thread ;-) ?

Even though Frankfurt is the closest city, no I'm not.

While this is certainly one of your flaws (IIRC correctly, your favourite club is the second-closest DEL-city to Darmstadt), I am happy, that my memory still works. :D

At least I'm joing their bandwagon when I'm there for a game once in a while and pretend to care for the team ... :biglaugh:

... but I'm rather wearing my Sergei Fedorov jersey rather than one of my 2 you-know-what-city-I-mean jerseys.

Great singing by the Lions. Hope Gawlik can stay healthy.

ALF AmericanLionsFan 05-22-2008 05:55 PM

About time the Lions get their own thread:shakehead;) I like Gawlik. Just stay healthy.

Lance Ward, John Slaney and Jamie Wright have already signed, but the Lions are reluctant to announce it officially. ;)

signed with berlin. haven't heard anything about a possible tryout in NA, but i could imagine that. but unless he succeeds in NA, he will play in berlin next season.

Hmm...any word on why he didn't stay in Frankfurt? That's a little disappointing...

Money, money, money...

He's definitely an improvement over Smrek (not a big thing, though), but I am somewhat worried about the speed of the Lions' defense next season, cause Armstrong, Slaney and Ward are not known for their skating skills.

ALF AmericanLionsFan 05-31-2008 02:43 PM

I'm nervous about the d as well....wouldn't hurt to add another forward either...

Snoil11 06-02-2008 01:32 AM

It's not breaking news, but the Lions affirmed the contract extension of Michael Bresagk for the upcoming season.

Wonder how much longer he will play?

Snoil11 06-04-2008 07:15 AM

I guess, it will be his final season, but you'll never know. Bresagk was in great shape last season and he looked the fittest among all athletes after the triple OT-game against Iserlohn, although he got comparable ice-time to guys like Regehr, Marshall and Kopitz.

Snoil11 06-06-2008 05:47 PM

Yesterday, the Lions officially announced the signing of LW Jamie Wright. He has signed for one year.

i think he's a good addition. it's not just his scoring, he's also playing tough. he's a pretty good player in europe.

in general i like the additions of the lions. when i remember the years before chernomaz, they lions were a bunch of crap put together and nothing worked. but the last seasons we see a team that works. it's put together with a strategy.

the way it looks at the moment, i would expect the lions to play like last season. somewhere around 4th/5th place and dangerous in the POs.

enjoyable times for lions fans these days. :nod:
