    As suggested by stv11 we're going to have some separate threads from now on. All EIHL talk goes in here, including player signings, game discussion, news regarding EIHL teams.

    Mr Simms said today that its cheaper to sign a lockout player at the moment than to sign an ECHLer. Take that as you wish.


    Tom Sestito arrived today in Sheffield and has pricked the media's attention. Look North have been filming with the Steelers today and Calender are doing so tomorrow. Hopefully a nice little bit of press.

    Dave Simms also said that no team would win the league with a British netminder and "Pecker will be the best player in the league".

    There is a reason why he is known as 'DS the BS' by many who follow British hockey.;)

    Like I said, take it as you wish.

    Although as much as he runs his mouth, I'm more inclinded to believe him on this one.


    Oh and guess which Panther CN is talking about here - "He skates well and is a huge wall of muscle."

    Finnerty is a terrible coach.
    Fife are good though, knocking on the door of a top half finish in the league I reckon. 6th at worst and look for them to make a big playoff upset.

    Looking forward to tomorrow, lol at Beleskey splashing out on such a modest car. Will be interviewing Schutte for On Fire magazine after the game, can't wait. Genuinely good guy.

    That's a huge statement from Fife.
    Flyers gotta be taken seriously now.

    Think Flyers will struggle for consistency, much like Braehead, due to their lack of depth. Great result for them though after a tough season last year.

    The jury is out on Finnerty, but he finished above Nottingham, Cardiff and Coventry in his rookie year and is still above Cardiff and Coventry after a poor spell.





    After laughing and saying the Steelers had signed just a goon, Sestito scored on his debut last night and got a Gordie Howe hat trick in 2 periods tonight against Belfast. :yo:

    As if to prove your point they lose 5-2 to the Caps.


    As much as the Steelers have really stumbled of late we have still taken 3 out of 4 points against Nottingham and 4 out of 4 against Belfast. We're like Nottingham of previous years, winning against the big teams and stumbling against other teams.

    The season is shaping up to be very interesting with the conferences.

    was anyone on here at the giants/steelers game? if so can you remember who got man of the match/3stars, and did they announce the attendance, neither are listed on the gamesheets.

    The scuttlebutt is that Steelers don't release their attendance if they play at the Arena and it is below break even, so I'm guessing it was poor.

    I don't know about that, the amount of times I've been to games and some/most of the guns used to scan the tickets aren't working. That could be why some of them don't get released.

    But if you're looking for attendance figures, try here http://steelersstats.co.uk/total_games.htm#2012/13

    Hull will miss Bowns if he's picked, which he should be.

    Belfast will miss Christensen as he's the assistant.

    Tbh I think it'll mostly be the same sort of squad going as the one for the WC's.

    No I waS more concerned how missing players would affect EIHL teams.
    At the right time the Q's will appear in the Brit thread.
