Where is Andrew Carroll?

From: Rick Comments: What was the condors record before Carroll arrived last season? He’s where now? (Hint) Reply: So I presume your *hint* is that you think the Condors should sign him for 2014-15? When “Pistol” was acquired on Dec. 16, the Condors record was 7-14-0-1. The team did pick up points in 10 of […]

What ever happened to…..

From: Dylan Comments: I understand that I probably should have asked this question a really long time ago… But what ever happened to the Victoria Salmon Kings and the Phoenix RoadRunners?

How do you say the new coach’s name?

What is the QMJHL?

FROM: Donna COMMENTS: I know I should know this, but it said in the article that the new coach came from the QMJHL … what’s that? REPLY: This is a great question! We anticipated that fans in Condorstown may not know all about “The Q” as it’s referred to in the hockey world. Team President Matthew Riley talks […]

FROM: Oliver COMMENTS: I just wanted to say that the mailbag guy picked the right coach for the job with JF! Very well done and I’m pumped for the season!!!

Changes to the regular season schedule?

From: Harry Comments: With the re-alignment of the ECHL Eastern and Western Conferences, will the Regular Season Schedule(s) change? As it is now, the Western Conference’s Midwest Division has 4 teams that do not really play other teams in its’ own Conference. To me that does not seem right or fair. Reply: I hear ya, […]

Future considerations

From: D Comments: Only futures trade announced was Burgdoefer’s rights going to Greenville. Can you run down the rest of the completed future considersations trades? We gave up a couple of good players, Greenham and Kessel for futures. Would be nice to know what we got in return. Reply: Future considerations aren’t always players. When […]

Why no goaltenders on the list?

From: Marcia & Ted Comments: What about Carroll & Leach? Why no goaltenders on the Protected List? Reply: The Condors are not allowed to protect players that technically were not theirs. The goalies – Tyler Bunz, Chet Pickard and Laurent Brossoit – were all contracted players (meaning they were not here because the Condors signed […]
