The ECHL is no longer the East Coast Hockey League. When they expanded, they became simply ECHL, with the letters not actually meaning anything anymore. I'm sure people will always know it as the East Coast Hockey League, though.

That makes little sense. Just change the stupid letters. Seriously, how much brand value could the ECHL name carry?

They took on the teams from the WCHL when it went bust. They should rename it the Federal League :D

Get on the Minard Train!


Yeah. Maybe he'll get some minutes in tonight, and hopefully he makes the most of them.

Hey, I never said it made sense, just telling what I know.

To stay on topic, I hope Minard does well. My coworker was having a fit about them not calling up Pesonen until I yelled at him. :lol:

WooHoo! Minard is a good kid! Literally, I grew up down the street from him, and was pretty good friends with his older brother Mike ( Who was drafted by the leafs or the Oilers as a goalie. )

Maybe we can get him for when Sabu gets traded to Atlanta for IK!

Anyway, I like the idea of a home-town kid!

Winner -- forever!

I tell you what, I think Idoit patrols the threads just to drop a witty zinger. But with quality like this who can blame him!?

On topic -- if they put him with Croz, I hope he lives up to his stats at least somehow in the next few games.
