trwi7 and I from the Milwaukee boards came up with it. He's an Admirals (Milwaukee) season ticket holder, and the Rockford IceHogs (UHL Champs last season, now in the AHL) are my hometown team and love going to games. Glad there's another one out there, and hopefully this thread will have at least some action on it throughout the season.

The Admirals always pwn the Griffins. Oh how I enjoyed the Ads sweeping the Griffins in the 2006 Western Conference Finals. :)

ETA: We're screwed when we play Iowa, we suck against them.

And Cal O'Reilly and Rich Peverley are back!:rockon:

Doesn't matter if they scare you, the only thing that matters is Jimmy Howard craps his pants everytime the Admirals show up.

I had a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton thread on the Pens board but I was the only one who posted in it so I got rid of it. Good to know there is now a place to go. WB/S love to choke in the playoffs.

Hopefully, this season will be different. David Brown should be starting this season for the team. Plus, the team has a lot of experience.

THe Admirals pwned the Woofs tonight 8-4 in their first preseason game. Tomorrow they head to where I played hockey, the Mullett Center facing Lake Erie. It's only about a 3 minute drive from my house so I'll probably go.

Jimmy Howard stopped 28/30 for those Griffins to win 3-2. You all better get worried, Jimmy is an unstoppable force

Ads beat Quad City last night 4-2. Rinne came up with a couple of big saves and Niskala had a couple goals.

Mandy Moore sang the national anthem so it was a pretty good night.
