    Re: UAA 2017 offseason

    The Brown Bears ended up raising just over $300,000, saving them for another season. Another reason that proves the Aces owners gave no ****s about Anchorage, the state, hockey fans, it's employees, etc. **** them forever and always.

    I kinda see your point, but $300,000 is a small drop in the bucket compared to what the Aces needed to stay alive.

    From ADN:

    "According to NCAA, the (UAF) hockey team used ineligible players in every game played from the 2007-08 season to the 2010-11 season. Over that span, the wins and ties will all become losses. 4 wins and 2 ties came against rival UAA".

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

    The Aces "fanbase" is much larger.

    Solid recruit.

    I have no idea how many fans go to the Brown Bear games. What they did was impressive! Do you know the seating capacity of where they play in Soldotna?

    Now if only the NHL followed suit:

    “It is important that our current and future Seawolves recognize the legacy left behind by the players that came before them,” said Thomas. “From Craig Homan, our first MVP, to Justin Johnson, a four-year Cornerman Award honoree, these athletes have aided our program with great distinction and serve as examples to strive for. It is only fitting that we make these honors permanent.”

    Of the 10 team awards, six have been renamed. Come April 28 at the annual All-Sport Awards Banquet, current members of the team will receive the following honors; the Craig Homan Most Valuable Player Award, the Dean Larson Rookie of the Year Award, the Jeff Batters Defensive Player of Year Award, the McEnaney/Kraft Most Inspirational Player Award, the Justin Johnson Corner Man Award, and the Mike Peluso Most Improved Player Award.

    There is a good article on KTVA where Coach Thomas is trying to build the program by linking the traditions of the past.

    I think we need to start winning first and getting people back to games. However, I hope they do not cut the internet live feed during home games, so I can watch it live from San Antonio.
