Perhaps the best moment in Admirals history came in the 2004 season. Milwaukee brought home the first Calder Cup in franchise history. After narrowly squeaking by Cincinnati in seven games in the first round, they defeated the Chicago Wolves in six games to advance to the Conference Finals. They then defeated the Rochester Americans in a five game series to reach the Calder Cup finals against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Milwaukee dominated the championship series, completing the four game sweep and winning the Calder Cup. Read the rest of this entry »

With less than a week left in the 2010-11 NHL season, it looks as if the Nashville Predators are going to make their six playoff appearance in the past seven years. Thanks to a Vezina worthy performance by goalie Pekka Rinne, the Predators have overcome a less then stellar goal scoring season to take a playoff spot in the ultra competitive Western Confrence. Rinne’s 2.13 GAA have helped overcome an anemic offense (no player has yet reached the 50 point mark) to help propel the Predators to a great second half. The Predators need just one Read the rest of this entry »
Things are particularly wild in the NHL Western Conference this season. At some points, the third and tenth spots were only separated by three or four points. As the season winds down, things are beginning to slide into place for the Nashville Predators. While it’s still to be determined where the Predators are going to finish, they are two points out of fourth place (and hosting a first round playoff game), and four points out of eight, it looks like the Predators will end Read the rest of this entry »
For all ice hockey enthusiasts, the team that you want to watch in action is the Milwaukee Admirals. Since they took to the ice in 1970 in their debut game when they were called the Milwaukee wings, they have had a very eventful career. The ice hockey fans want to get value for their money and that is why they cannot wait to put all their money on the Milwaukee Admirals, who, like a real admiral in the sea, have taken the world of the ice hockey sport by storm.
Wins and losses have seen this team perfect their game over time, thus emerging in the best light possible. Every game that they play is bound to be sizzling and exciting and that is why the fans follow their progress with an avid fanaticism, determined to be the best. Even more notable is the fact that their affiliation with the Nashville Predators has done the team’s profiles a lot of good. Coupled with their slogan “never say die” one has to watch the Milwaukee Admirals in action to experience a team of professionals in action. With an already signed agreement of affiliation between the Admirals and the predators for the 2011-2012 season and the mutual option for the 2012-2013 season, fans cannot just wait.
For all ice hockey fans, the Milwaukee Admirals are the team to watch in action, either live or on streaming TV. You even stream their games in rural areas over satellite internet connections like those provided by www.wildbluedeals.com. I haven’t heard of an NHL streaming app for smartphones but it should only be a matter of time. Now if only they would add the channel the game is playing on to their online schedule. That would totally make my day.
By this point certainly you’ve noticed a new look the Admirals on the ice this season. Though they have skated with similar poise and attacked the net as usual, from an aesthetic perspective, they look almost like an entirely new team, not so much at home, but while on the road. In case you couldn’t quite put your finger on the little jeax ne sais quois that has added to the sleek look of your new favorite player, the 2010-2011 are sporting new road jerseys. In this opinion, the black roadies are a welcome change. Historically the Admirals have been a gray-clad unit as they attempt to pillage the home arena of AHL opponents across the country, which, despite the neon blue accents, possesses a mundane quality that simply fails to look intimidating or inspired on the ice.

As the Admirals look ahead to their 10th season in the American Hockey League, let’s take a look back at what lot of longtime Admirals followers may remember as their first and perhaps most cherished days of professional hockey fandom. Before joining the AHL in 2001-2002, the Admirals spend over two decades as members of the now defunct International Hockey League. The IHL saw many milestones throughout Milwaukee’s organizational history. For example, the Admirals current affiliation with the Nashville Predators began while they were still playing in the league. Before becoming Calder Cup champions in 2004, the Admirals chased dreams of hoisting the Turner Cup, named in honor Joe Turner, killed in battle during World War II, after serving as a goaltender for the Detroit Red Wings. Though the Admirals never captured the Turner Cup, they came close several time, fashioning one of the league’s most competitive teams over the course of the mid-90s. From the 92-93 season to the 95-96 season, the Ads boasted Midwest Division crowns in 3 of the 4 years, having only won one division title in their previous IHL tenure which dated back to 1977. Their first Midwest Division championship in 1983 resulted in their only Turner Cup Finals appearance. Read the rest of this entry »
With the 2010 NHL Entry Draft just a few weeks ago, newly minted Predators prospects may find themselves moving up and down the Nashville farm system, some making extended stays in the Milwaukee area. Any player selected by the Nashville brass faces the very real possibility of donning an Admiral uniform at some point, particularly a younger player not ready for the high speed of the NHL or the grindingly extensive schedule. Here’s a look at the first few rounds of prospects hoping to eventually become valuable assets to the Predators organization.Round 1, Pick 18: Austin Watson, Left Wing, Peterborough (OHL) Watson is a gritty player on the offensive and defensive end. His strong hands give him an authoritative shot, but he still has touch on the pass. Watson plays an aggressive game, finishing checks and unafraid of lying down in front of the puck. As a middle of the first round selection, it is likely Watson may bypass minor league affiliates jumping straight to the big league roster. Read the rest of this entry »
Just a year after accruing the most points in the entire Western Conference in 2009, the Admirals took a minor step backwards last season, finishing just 4th in the conference’s West Division. Sitting in the middle of pack at regular season’s end, the Admirals barely qualified for the Calder Cup playoffs, securing the West Division’s final seed going into the tournament. On their way towards qualifying for the playoffs, the Admirals amassed a total of 41 wins, 30 losses, 2 overtime losses and 7 shoot out losses, rounding out at 91 points on the season. Perhaps most telling is the Admirals 17 goal differential, well above some of the teams that out rank them in the standings, indicating that the offensive firepower, talent and defensive tenacity was there, though undermined by a lack of focus and grit to pull out close games.
