First Month in the Sin Bin


So, it’s been a month since I joined and it’s been pretty solid overall. Here’s what you may have been missing if you haven’t checked it out yet.

-The Stockton Heat not only are going through a change on the ice in their league play, but also off the ice in renovations to get the Stockton Arena up to AHL caliber.

-The AHL schedule was announced and boy howdy, it’s as bad as you think it was and it will cause a plenty of confusion with math and stuff to determine the playoffs.

-With the possibility of expansion in the NHL, it means the AHL and ECHL will need expansion as well to have a “One Team, One Affiliation” gimmick going. Hat Trick Consultants are looking at different markets to see what is actually viable.

-And, it’s two weeks– so the podcast is up and going.

It’s been a great time and the people there have been super supportive and we’ve been noticed– with is the main goal. Hope you keep coming along for the journey.

Farm Report Podcast: 04.05.15

The SPHL Playoffs got a little crazy and Scotty will run down the after effect of that, plus give you the low-down on the Yearly Honors the SPHL handed out thus far. Carter Rowney is on doing his best to ply his trade and go beyond most odds to get a NHL contract from first only signing an AHL-only deal. Consistency is Mike Monfredo’s mantra…and if it isn’t– it should be as he’s been more than consistent for the Quad City Mallards. The monthly awards came down, as did the weeklys, the new San Jose AHL team name, plus Syracuse’s push for the 2016 AHL All-Star Game. All that, and We Hardly Knew Ye.
