    Rest in peace Bill. He was the original Von Braun Bully.


    "Original Charger Bill Roberts dies: Bill Roberts, who played on the first UAH hockey club teams from 1979-82, passed away on June 6. He was 61.

    Roberts, also known as “Big Bad Bill from Billy Goat Hill,” was the Chargers’ leading scorer in the inaugural 1979-80 season, scoring 70 points on 30 goals and 40 assists in 20 games. He had 88 goals and 138 assist for 226 points in three seasons, helping UAH win its first U.S. national club championship in 1982.

    A graveside service will be at 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 12th, at Maple Hill Cemetery. Memorials may be made to Friends of UAH Hockey, c/o Bryant Bank, 320 Pelham Ave., SW, Suite 100, Huntsville AL 35801-5051."

      Sure isn't looking good for UAH, even for next season which is a shame.

        Next season should happen — the main issue would be COVID-related in terms of whether we actually play the game. The concern is, of course, about the longer term.

          Any update on the long term? I heard there was a zoom call, but that's about it.

            The next big community push is to get Season Tickets sold. The school and the alumni are working the conference angle. The two are symbiotic.

                Lance West is now for-sure the head coach. I haven't talked to him about AC's yet (been busy at work).

                    One of two things.

                    95% chance it's the new building.
                    5% chance they found a new league.

                        • "The Minnesota Wild signed Cam Talbot to a three-year, $11 million deal during the first day of free agency. The organization’s most anticipated move this offseason was to improve their goaltending.

                          The timing was good for the club since there were many quality goaltending options available via trade or free agency. NHL general managers were lined up with pens and contracts to arm their rosters with the best goaltending option possible. However, they had to make quick decisions to avoid going back to their fan base empty-handed.
                          ...

                          Talbot is 33-years-old and has played in 314 games with a record of 150-122-25 with a 2.61 GAA and a .915 SV%. His best season was in 2016-17 where he led the NHL with 73 starts, 42 wins, and had a 2.39 GAA and .919 SV%. He finished fourth in Vezina Trophy voting that season.
                          ...

                          His worst season came in 2018-19 with the Oilers in which Talbot went 10-15-3 with a 3.36 GAA and .893 SV% and was ultimately dealt to the Flyers, Talbot signed a one-year, $2.75 million deal in Calgary in a deal where he bet on himself to prove he was still a quality netminder in the league. He went 12-10-1 with a 2.63 GAA and .919 SV% in the regular season and 5-4 in the playoffs with a 2.42 GAA and .924 SV% on a quality defensive team."
