Re: Home vs Binghamton... article w/ injury updates and stats..

They suck, bottom line. And they’re going to get worse.

Botterill and Sexton are frauds. Completely done with both.

Re: Amerks visit Syracuse and Springfield This Weekend

There’s no roster limit, so I wouldn’t say he’s taking a spot or anything. He’s proven he can fill in after a long time of not playing, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it. This team has far bigger problems.

if they 're going to pay him (Paetsch) why not play him? Or remove him from the active roster and get someone else.
He’s a coach. There’s really no reason to think otherwise. And he’s definitely not one of the 6 best defenseman on the roster, so for now, I think it’s ok that he’s not playing.

Re: Amerks visit Syracuse and Springfield This Weekend

Playoff chances and Championships are always decided in October. They’re decided over the summer, when Botterill miserably failed at improving the team. It’s pretty clear to me that Toronto and Utica are on another level. They are far more talented teams, as is Syracuse. At best, the Amerks are the...

Re: Amerks visit Syracuse and Springfield This Weekend

There is no doubt in my mind the Amerks are a bad team. This was a terrible loss of course, but they have two incredibly lucky wins from late goals that likely never should have happened. It’s going to be a long year. They are not good at all, far, far below last years team, and not even as good as ...

Re: Wednesday Home Games

Marketing wise, the Amerks are poorly run. There’s no other way to spin it. The contrast between the Amerks and Red Wings is stark. I think it’s pretty clear that the Pegulas do not put any emphasis on promotions and giveaways for the Amerks, and that they have a limited budget in marketing the team...

Re: Wednesday Home Games

By mid Sunday afternoon I’m just not in the mood for a game. At that point it’s likely been a busy weekend and I’ve been watching football. By late Sunday you sort of just want to relax before Monday comes. Wednesday’s at least give you something to look forward to in the middle of the week in the m...

Re: Wednesday Home Games

I don’t love Wednesday’s, but they are definitely the lesser of two evils. People are too focused on the NFL on Sunday’s. Attendance is bad and the players are tired. It’s not an excuse, just a fact. Wednesday games are nice in the middle of a week in winter. Breaks the week up and is something to l...

Re: Work To Do

Too early to be truly concerned, but the lack of skill and offense could’ve been seen a mile away. If they thought they had enough skill, that was a serious error in judgement.

Re: Cleveland vs Amerks BCA 10/18

It has nothing to do with what year we are in. All competent organizations advertise via social media but also in traditional ways. There are far too many organizations in the AHL, with similar or smaller market sizes, and with far less history in their community, that draw better than the Amerks. A...
