At a complete guess, the contracts will all come with a clause of some sort that the club won't pay players/staff if there is no league.
If there isn't a league until January, then possible the coach is paid from October, with the players paid December onwards (preseason, camp)?
Just my opinion, but i can't see him going straight into a top EU league (Liiga,SHL,DEL etc)
He's good enough that an EBEL/Allsvenskan team will probably take a chance on him - i'd guess at EBEL.
but also don't think he ends up in a league like DEL2; Division 1 Sweden, etc, as they are more...
Others here have said this perfectly, he was the prototype CARDIFF DEVIL, very sad to see him go & a more 'team' player i don't think we'll find for some time.
I can't imagine he was a guy we were paying astronomic wages to, but even if we were he's been worth every penny of his time here.
That list is so stupid.
Obviously it's a fan vote though so to be taken with a pinch of salt.
Andrew Hotham missing off this list is frankly baffling; they should do a fan vote, GM's vote & EIHL vote and compare it!!!
Sorry Steve, this is going to go down like a lead balloon on here as you're a popular figure, (and rightly so), but with that being said, i'll try and put together a rational response so that people don't turn up at my door with pitchforks... :)
The season was not complete unfortunately, it's...
for what it's worth, i'm completely the other way around.
The league was not complete, points per game mean nothing up until the last game.
Whilst it looked like we were going to win it all, last year tells us that any team can choke at crunch time.
There shouldn't be a league title awarded...
Is there a player you regret we didn't sign when it looked like we would? Max Birbraer for the 14/15 season!
Is there a game you regret not going to? The CC semi final(?) come back vs Sheffield either last year or the year before, the only game i've voluntarily missed in about 10 years!!!
50% he played on a 4th line with Brine (nothing against Brine, but Jason stone had more offence in him during his testimonial game... which he played with a broken ankle & a chair on the blueline), and also (if memory serves me) Duggan?
Bordy was never given the real opportunity to...
