Rochester Americans: some ole AHL memories
I went to RIT '89-93' ... saw a few Indians/Amerks games at the old War Memorial and even saw the Whale at the Aud. I remember being teased by my Western NY friends when Rob Ray completely kicked the crap out of Bobby Holik ... they told me the Whalers wasted a 1st rounder on that "soft" Czech ... haha

... saw a lot of Nighthawks' games versus the Americans, Indians, Bears, etc. in New Haven, the state's authentic hockey area. Quite a clusterphark building the since demolished Coliseum, and sad no pro hockey is played in the Elm City.

The state's authentic hockey area??? What does that mean? You're saying hockey anywhere outside of new haven county is not authentic? OK. You just posted you were glad QU just lost. UConn hockey not authentic? Do me a favor, we don't need division of hockey fans in our state. Root for them all. Is Hartford or storrs not good enough for you? Not real enough? Gimme a break. No wonder CT can't have a pro team. It's posts like yours that piss me off the most.

Congrats Tage!!!

Kinda bummed, but he's livin the dream! I think one more year of seasoning in hockey east woulda helped. Gonna miss that shot.

Max for a ELC is $925,000
He could get bonuses of no more than a total 2,850,000.

Its a bummer. Next season could have been the one year UConn broke out of the bottom half of the league.

Now they will be relegated to the bottom half of the league for years to come.
