    Plymouth rink

    It’s really more about the size of arena people seem to expect. Devils (maybe) wish that they had an extra 1000 seats right now, but 3-4 years ago 3,000 looked riskily ambitious. Manchester, Guildford, Coventry, Dundee, rarely seem ‘packed’ ... and that’s for EIHL, which is probably 5-10...

    Plymouth rink

    Plymouth’s catchment area is huge, but population density is very low. Everything west of Bristol adds up to less than twice the Greater Manchester area. Plymouth itself is significantly smaller than Cardiff and has no track record with the sport (let alone “of success”). It’ll do ... as a start.

    Team GB vs Romania

    Weirdly happy to meet someone wearing a Leeds Chiefs top at the games yesterday. Lots of positives but somehow that was a highlight... like someone getting a new puppy!

    DOPS Changes

    Excellent post. Sometimes they need to be long. ”The demand” to know maybe unreadonable but “The desire” to know is ultimately positive. All of these posts essential reduce to, “Will someone please explain the difference between A & B (because I can't see it).”

    DOPS Changes

    I've seen speculation from 3-5 games for a potential Marjamäki suspension. 3 seems like a reasonable minimum expectation: 2 for, +1 for previous. Next five Devils games: 15/02 Vs Blaze 16/02 @ Flames 19/02 Vs Flyers 22/02 Vs Flames 23/02 @ Blaze

    Pride Jersey Auction

    The sale order has an impact and selling some ‘club’ pride jerseys in advance probably took a bit of pressure off as well.

    Cardiff bay arena

    Cardiff Devils are literally the closest EIHL team for the whole of the South West of the UK. With Bristol gone - or playing in Swindon? - Devils are very nearly the closest team, period. Gosport (Solent, NIHL 1) and Swindon (NIHL 2) are a little bit closer, if you live east of the M5, but they...

    New Devils podcast

    He’s now up to Episode 19 and this is definitely worth a listen if you can find time in your schedule for it. https://anchor.fm/oliver-hampson/episodes/Episode-19---GB--Situation-Rooms-and-Defending-Benti-eadr94 I personally struggle to make time for podcasts, audio doesn’t fit my schedule...

    Pride Jersey Auction

    Low end £200-ish, most £300-ish, some £400s and a couple of £600s (Bowns ... and Haddad?) £300+ is a good estimate, with the exceptions being the ones you’d probably guess (Blood Jersey - low; Bowns, Martin, ... - high).
