[QUOTE=Lundqvist=Vezina;18517832][QUOTE=BrooklynHockey99;18517145]They should organize a pro league around NYC: Brooklyn Aces, Staten Island Garbagemen, Bronx Gangbangers, Queens... umm... Queens from Queens, Manhattan Whole Foods, Westchester Nothing Interestings, NJ Trash Collectors, and of course, the New York Islanders.
It's pretty cool to see this league surviving. Would be nice to see if they could expand in the upcoming years.
It says that it will likely expand to a couple places in Mass. Honestly, I would've preferred to expand around the same territory to make travel less of a hassle and create a rivarly.
Also, I found their average salary: $294 per game plus housing costs. Over 50 games, that comes out to about $15,000. Good job if you are a student, but horrible if this is your only career.
I dont know about the EPCHL, but I always thought the Rangers should try to cut a deal w/ Westchester County and build a New County Center in White Plains. The Wolfpack should move there. Then the prospects could be watched by everyone. The prospects could train @ the MSG training center with the Big Club, The Head coach being alot closer to the AHL team could really take a good look @ who could help the team.
Also, I think alot of people would take the MetroNorth up to White Plains to see the yutes. Especially on a Weekend nite.
Well, I went last night and it was a fun time. Place was pretty empty - a few hundred fans, and they were pretty quiet - but like someone said before, the players give their all almost the entire game so the intensity is there.
The place is simple to get to - take the 2 to the end at flatbush ave, find the Q35 bus stop and take that to the rink but in rush hour, it took me more than an hour and a half to get there from midtown.

No seriously. I think it would be interesting to create a rivalry between boroughs and Westchester, Nassau and NJ. It might actually get some people to show up for the Metro Cup Finals. It would be for borough pride.
Great... promote more territory related gang warfare due to hockey
Sounds like a great idea... The borough of Queens would have a tough time coming up with a name. Just sounds weird trying to fit something else in their...
Last night the Aces clinched to become the 2008-09 Reg Season Champs with a win over the Jersey Rock Hoppers.
Tony Resendes scored one of the most amazing goals I've ever seen.
Got a pass while being knocked to his knees. Resendes, a right-handed shooter caught it on his forehand but had a bad angle. I thought he had put it to his backhand (which would have been impressive) but was later corrected and told that he completely switched and beat the goalie by shooting lefty. Both benches were in disbelief! All while sliding on his knees. Just diiiiiirty.
Ive been to 3 games. The HV bears split the arena between Newburgh and Poughkeepsie. The games are pretty entertaining and you can see the players giving it their all. All 3 games the Bears lost. One game the coach got ejected for tossing sticks to the ice and he came to the stands ( ala the mets coach ) and was on his cell with the assistant coach. Whe the faceoff came towards the stands he took off.
That was hilarious.
Have not been to the Civic centre but Icetime seats are those aluminum ones and it gets cold in there. If you do go take something. to sit on
I would definitely go to more games even thoug the Bears have won 2 games this season.Its fun.
