    Re: Finally it has been done. The Federal League is Real!

    Last I looked @ 1000 Islands, Alex Wyse was on the roster as a goalie. Somebody has (had) him in the FHL.

    Broome lists Clarkson's Kira Hurley as a goaltender on the team - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kira_Hurley

    Note: Looks like each team has a countdown clock to the first game timed to the millisecond!
    Rome has posted too now.

    EXTREMELY quick scan of the rosters and these were names I recognized. I know I'm probably missing plenty.

    Danbury Whalers:
    G.Matthew Lopes, Gustavus Adolphus
    F.Andrew Willock, Plattsburgh State
    D.John Halverson, Trinity

    New York Aviators:
    D.Tyler Lyon, Oswego
    G.Chris Testa
    F.Anthony Longo,


    Rome Frenzy:
    F.Anthony Monte, Nichols
    D.Kyle Roberts, Morrisville/Oswego
    F.James Muscatello, Fredonia
    D.Craig Cole
    F.David Fimiani, Norwich
    F.Vincent Nucci

    The other names sounded familiar but I couldn't place teams with them. They may or may not have played D-III.

    Please feel free to add to the list. Once again, this is just what i quickly came up with off the top of my head by scanning the rosters.

    From this on the upstart Rome team:

    "The Frenzy, with the help of the league, have been careful to schedule home games to avoid conflicts with Utica College games at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. Since its inception in 2000, Utica’s team has drawn very well, setting Division 2 & 3 attendance records as members of the highly competitive ECAC. Mayor Brown said that Utica games regularly bring in 2,500-3,000 fans."

    I think your being a little harsh. Also I don't think the NHL is hanging by it's fingertips. Danbury and Brooklyn have always done fairly well. Upstate cities don't even support the AHL. The economy up there has been in the crapper for 20 years, the current situation is really nothing new to them. A lot of people on anonymous sites are very quick to say things about people that they would never say to their face. I've looked at a couple of the rosters and they contain a lot of D 1 players and high level D 3 guys, not D 3 castoffs whatever that means.

    They could play in the renovated HS venue,Kennedy Arena,and maybe fill it half-full for the first couple of games...Maybe.

    The last thing that's gonna sell tickets in this God-forsaken economy is yet another BS,fists-flying,fly-by-night hockey league,especially one populated by D-3 cast-offs...Christ,the NHL itself is hanging on by it's fingertips,and those guys can actually play!

    I doubt the league will survive to complete it's first season.And I guarantee that nearby Utica College will outdraw the Rome team by a country mile.Low-minor hockey is just sad to watch.

    Why bother?

    Considering achahockey.org and thefederalhockeyleague.com both use goal line network to run their websites, I can't say I'm surprised to see this. Also, that's last year's roster, including the graduated seniors
    Well, they might need to be psychic to post a future roster

    I agree, I'm thinking GoalLine Network might be using their ACHA data in training the FHL web staff.
