They're too cheap to buy the domain name, so they have a pointstreak site

I was randomly looking at the final regular season standings and noticed that not one team played the same number of games this year. That has got to be on the top ten list of signs you're playing in a ghetto hockey league...

He told Stephen Heisler on his site that he was not going to apply, yet he did. I knows when WETM talked about the FHL visiting town Nichols talked about "exploring all options to possibly lower costs" Apparently he doeesn't know Afr too well, he wouldn't stoop down to bad Hockey. Yopu notice when his Colonial League/UHL started falling apart he bolted to the E?

Robbie ALSO told the FHL that the ECHL and Afr would not be back in Elmira next year because he was being thrown out for not paying his taxes.

The FHL knows of nothing going on here except for what Nichols told them, which was nothing more than his wants. They don't know about the investigation going on, lawsuits or the foreclosure deal. All they knew was that Robbie told them Afr was out long time before his deadline was up to pay.


The guy I was talking to recieved a phone call because he was inquiring the league after Heisler ran his story. He has since clued them in on whats going on here.

New Jersey Outlaws are the 2012 champs! 3100 fans in attendance at Danbury, I'm pretty sure that's a record

With the series sweep, congrats to the champs! Now we may ponder the league's fate for the next six months...

Why did they stoop for the lowly FHL?

They were in the old UHL....but the owner screwed them over, he ran too good of a show and got caught.

FHL no longer pursing Lewiston

You can cross Lewiston, Maine off the list of cities that the Federal Hockey League was pursuing as potential locations for future expansion.

makes sense, Lewiston should aim a little higher, like ECHL or get another junior team

I think the ECHL would work in a market like Lewiston, because what Wildcat48 and I found during the first FHL game people liked the fact they were seeing men rather than "kids."

For someone like me, who started to follow hockey as I much as I do now because of the Lewiston Maineiacs and seeing prospects so the ECHL would have some prospects, not the big names, but it would do.

Obviously with the AHL 40 minutes down the road that would makes sense from affiliation stand point, but what makes the ECHL not viable in Lewiston is the fact theres no other ECHL team in New England.

The Colisee wants to bring the USHL in because they believe the USHL on the verge of Eastern expansion. The USHL wouldn't confirm or deny that, but speaking with others in the hockey community they believe the USHL wouldn't work out east/New England because of the over-saturation of hockey.

So who knows what happens. The only thing thats a grantee is the Portland Pirates will be playing a handful of games in Lewiston each season for the foreseeable future.

Bloomington Blaze announce affiliation with the Danville Dashers next season:

http://fhldanville.pointstreaksites....445/news_47165

Also, their (Dashers) season tickets for next season went on sale. $210 for the whole season. Not bad if you ask me.

Me neither but not only did they get through it, it seems as though they are becoming one of the top teams off ice in the FHL. Now it's just to get their on ice product there.

Well they figured it out this year and are coming back for a next season so it must be in the plan somewhere?

Danville is becoming a model franchise in this league. Both the team and the front office have worked very hard to overcome their adversities... I really admire the people in Danville.
