My 2ps worth on the rumours of Martin returning...
When it was announced Martin was leaving I had split emotions. Gutted to be losing one of our all time greats, but also in a way 'relieved' that we wouldn't see his talent diminish and at some point over the following years we'd have to...
I hope the Mods don't mind me posting this, but can we keep all the chit chat to the Nonsense Thread?
It's frustrating to see there is a new post on this thread and it's not an actual signing. It's not even comments on an actual signing.
The objectives for any EIHL team in the CHL is to win a couple of games. Major success would be to qualify out of the group.
The objectives for any EIHL team in the Continental Cup should be to qualify for the Final Round. Major success would be to win it.
EIHL teams results...
In recent years when the EIHL had two spots it was because either the Panthers won the Conti Cup or Belfast were awarded a CHL spot because they finished 2nd in the Conti Cup (winners were ineligible).

3 -4 new defencemen.
5-6 new forwards.
I also think within those 10-12 new players will be a couple of familiar faces. But that might just be wishful thinking.
I don’t have the previous years‘ awards to check if I’m right, but I’ve got a feeling the MVP award always goes to someone who is already signed up for the following season or someone we are trying to re-sign.
With Carruth already signed elsewhere, I wasn’t surprised he didn’t win it.
I’ve seen a couple of comments on other threads suggesting that they’d heard there was more to Skalde’s sacking than has been said. They might have better sources than me but I’ve not heard anything like that.
All I’ve heard is that Todd decided that continuing with Skalde would not be the way...
Well if that is the last game I see us play this season at least it ends on a cracker. Yes we lost but I found it great entertainment.
Thought we were great in the first period. Lots of zone pressure, lots of hitting and only a couple of great saves from the Clan netminder kept them in it. When...
