Kesler just had hip surgery. Out 10-12 weeks. Not sure why he waited to have it, going to miss training camp and the start of the season.

That's quite late in the offseason for surgery.

Perhaps waiting for something else to heal?

Hah.

Groin muscle most likely. Or perhaps waiting to see how it heals on its own, Hamhuis went in for hernia surgery a few weeks ago and it had already healed itself.

Looks like we'll have a similar sized squad for our fantasy hockey.

If the # of teams hits greater than 12, then we're gonna have to trim roster in terms of G. I like having some depth in terms of skaters though.

I wouldn't worry unless we have more than 15. With 15, everyone can pick up 2 starting Gs and use a third on a backup. Makes the draft that much more important when we have more people. When to pick a goalie?

I know of one or two more people willing to join too.

The problem is for every standout G, you have a bunch of donuts. I guess that's part of the thrill, but since G stats are so important, I just wanted every team to have a decent starter.

Also for funnies

Yeah there's about 15 starters that I would actually countenance as a number 1 G. Maybe just drop number of saves as a stat category, although it would be hilarious to see if everyone burns 1st rounders on goalies or not.

Well from early conversation, it looks like we'll have anywhere from 12-17 odd teams which would be great, and perhaps a bit more activity on our regular season thread.

I also do like the fact that there's a big spread of teams that are followed; although there is a disproportionate amount of Canucks (LOLOLOLOL) fans and perhaps Pens supporters too.

GA standing tickets all good?

If we get seated they are numbered and if we dont all buy together may be seated apart

Also looking at wotif... should I take the 5 star mystery deal? Excitement, mystery... I'm not sure I can resist the temptation

There isn't really any 'standing' room as such.

To give you some idea take a look at this pic, we are standing behind the last row of seats up near the goal end. All those people along the right hand side are in the 'standing room area' which is pretty much just the walk way to the seats. Or you can see all the people standing up in the middle bottom of the pic, or in the middle top in the bar.

There's also only seats on one side of the rink and that's it. They tend to curtain off the other side of the rink.

My 2.3cents worth. This was also the very first Melbourne ice game back in May last year, they may have changed things since then.

Thanks for the info T.

Eddie, for just the final, $39 a ticket. I'll get seated tickets, so you all have the weekend to think about it and let me know, otherwise, sit on your own.

I enjoyed him destroying dudes who were 20kgs heavier and 20cm taller than him.

AIHL finals tickets aquired for...

Tobi x 2
Awad x 2
Eddie
P-Statz
Luke

Was hard to grab a bay of seats together, it was almost sold out... I made sure though, that we were in the drinking section (bay 5) which is down one end of the ice... There are about 15 seats left in bay 5, with bays 4, 3 and 2 sold out, and bay 1 being non-drinking, so didnt bother looking at that shit.

I'll message everyone on facebook tonight (except Tobi, as I dont have you on there... my names Shaughn, I'm sure you will find me though :p ) with bank details.

Lets get it on!

So the final will be two of the above teams, hopefully Melbourne Ice is one of them.

Blue Tongues needed to win both games this weekend to get a spot, won the first and lost the second 2-1.

Devo.

Hopefully they make the playoffs next season!

One of my classmates said that she doesn't support/follow a specific team but supports Simon Gagne and whatever team he's in.

So she's got a Lightning jersey, Flyers jersey and now she's getting a Kings jersey.

I asked her what happens if he retires in 2 or so years, and she didn't have an answer.

Ok, invites to last year's teams have been sent out with the following changes:

GWG removed
FOW added
Hits added
Blocked Shots added

No roster changes (as yet, will depend on the number of teams in the league)

If you don't have an invite, you can go to the Y! hockey page and renew your league membership.
If you've never played before and want to join, PM me your email address and I'll shoot out an invitation.
