Re: Slow Summer Here

Maybe this will liven things up.....

Rochester Americans have signed John Wiitala to a 1 year contract. Wiitala, 24, had 73 points in 148 career games at Ohio State.

.....or not

Re: AMERKS PODCASTS INCOMING

That’s all it’ll be. He’s a shill for WGR and just wants to talk about how the 4 or 5 top prospects are doing. I guess I just don't get it. In a time when Rochester's traditional news sources have seemingly abandoned meaningful coverage of the Amerks, some guy who happens to work at WGR jumps into ...

Nice come from behind win today. Olofsson with a nice backhand to win it. Nylander, Smith and Porter along the way.

Re: Checkers at Amerks Oct 5 BCA

Just posted this in another thread, but it is relevant here too. Seems like Delaware North was not singling out the Amerks with their lack of preparation and poor management: "FWIW, concessions were a big topic of discussion on Schopp and Bulldog regarding the Sabres opener as well. Sabres Bucks did...

Re: "Like Father, Like Son'

FWIW, concessions were a big topic of discussion on Schopp and Bulldog regarding the Sabres opener as well. Sabres Bucks didn't work, credit card problems, long lines only to find out they were out of many items, some guy was complaining that he could not get chicken fingers because the guy who make...

Re: Pegulas to takeover BCA in August

I think this is a great bit of news. I have long held that Pegula would not sink capital into the BCA unless he had a stake in the arena, and now he will. The team has a GM that believes in player development in a winning atmosphere - so that's a great starting point from an on ice perspective. Off ...

Re: What really happened: The Buffalo News loses half their sports staff in the span of a month

Of all the departures that occurred - I'm most happy to see Sullivan gone. Gleason is a close second.

Re: Fasching to Ariz for Brandon Hickey and Mike Sislo

If they sign either or both of Sislo and Hickey - it's a nice deal. If they don't, no loss in my opinion. They weren't going to tender Fasching anyway. At least now they have a shot at something.

Fasching to Ariz for Brandon Hickey and Mike Sislo

Rather than let him go for nothing - as he was not going to be re-signed , JB has has picked up something.

Hickey is a 4 year BU defenseman whose rights expire Aug 15.

Sislo is a Free Agent on July 1

Not sure what to make of this
