Since our old thread is locked, I thought I'd start a new one. Talk to just about anyone involved with UAA hockey, as well as the casual follower of the team, and it's clear people are excited and positive about the future of UAA hockey. As Brush said in his opinion piece, the players all have smiles on their faces ... they are having fun. That is so great to see!

Matt Thomas and coaching staff deserve a pat on the back for how they have turned this team around in just one season. The Seawolves are playing with passion and being very aggressive. For so many years they played "not to lose" instead of going for the win.

As they say, it's a great day to be a Seawolf!

In other news, the ECHL lost another team as San Francisco folded. My favorite part of this being the spin from Doyle:

Minor-league hockey teams folding, suspending operations or moving in-season are rare. The ECHL last ran into teams folding in-season in 2008, when both the Augusta Lynx and Fresno Falcons went bust.
This is rare! It only happened twice six years ago but it's rare!

Now that I got that out, UAA faces a tough run here. We got 4 series left with 2 on the road and 1 in Squarebanks. We need a little luck but they still got a shot at home ice.

We are thinking of going to _airbanks this season ... is anyone else going up? We'd want to sit with other UAA fans.

Sure is nice seeing Beagle get regular shifts with the Caps, who are playing my favorite team Buffalo at this very moment. Who to root for?

Caps, the sabres are not going anywhere this season. Might as well trade miller while they're at it.

It has been a great year so far, hope the train keeps rolling
Go seawolves

The Caps aren't doing too well either. Good game though, tied at 2

I expect ovechkin and co to bounce back and take the 8th seed before all is said and done, can't say the same about the sabres

No, I mean 4 and OT, and as I type this the Caps win it 5-4. :)

Reading my email, due to the cease of operations for the San Francisco Bulls the Aces had their schedule revised by the ECHL and they moved a Friday March 14th game to Thursday the 13th(During the WCHA First Round). I vaguely remember the Aces doing this before for the past when we were in the hunt for playoff home ice, anybody else recall this? Nonetheless it was a pleasant find in my email.

I vaguely remember that. Let's hope UAA does get home ice. I think this team has what it takes, they just need to stay focused and play like they know they can play. I'm sure Matt will have them ready!!

Page 1 of the "new thread!
Woody is spot on if we want home ice we have to earn home ice.
Great incentive, confident they can do it.

For those on Facebook, there are a bunch of pictures of the team spending time with students at College Gate Elementary School. The guys look like they are having a ball. Trupper and Murphy cut off their long hair! :eek:

Seeing the guys with these school kids reminds me of how Talafous (cough cough) had the guys out in the public eye. Remember when they used to be on the radio in the morning, on the Scott & Stu Morning Zoo? My daughter used to listen to this when she was getting ready for school, and she'd come running to tell me that the UAA players were going to be on the radio. It's great to see them out in the community again!

Oh ****, I didn't even know they used to do that. I saw Trupp earlier, he looks much better without the long hair. Some guys can pull it off, he can't.

I agree, he and Bobby both look better with short hair. As far as the guys on the radio, it was fun. I still remember Dough Teskey being challenged to say "I love unique New York" three times fast ... he couldn't! :) Gee, you can tell it's our bye week, can't ya?

I also heard(unreliable source) that we might be getting the SF Bulls scoreboard?

I have heard that too. Hear it on the bob and mark show. They've promoted UAA a lot more too.

Well, that would be a rather inexpensive way to get a scoreboard.

Just did a quick google search and found these images of their scoreboard:

Looks like a nice upgrade! I wonder under what circumstances the Sullivan Arena could get this board? Lease, rent or buy? I'm thinking if purchasing it outright is too expensive that even renting or leasing it could be a viable option if the seller were willing to negotiate. Of course de-installation, shipping and then re-installation could be expensive no matter how it is acquired.
