Edmonton Impact Signs Nick Leival and Ryan Martin

187 Owner speaks out about Nick leaving the team.

Nick was offered an opportunity that I doubt anyone in his shoes would turn down. He's going to get the chance to play paintball around the world in 2014 on a quality team with great teammates. I helped Nick work though some of the difficult issues involved in making this decision and I fully support Nick in his choice. Additionally, so do all his former teammates on 187.

It is a privilege to have our players sought after by the top 4 teams in the world. Nick isn’t the only one that was offered an opportunity, but he was the only one offered a life changing opportunity. We don’t have the financial resources of some of the more “powerful” teams in the league. We know where we stand and what will most likely happen to our players over time as we ascend to the top of the pro ranks.

While Nick’s shoes are difficult to fill it also opens up great opportunities within our own organization for players and coaches to step up and fill the void both on and off the field. Everyone on the squad will be pushed to grow their game and I believe that the sum of those improvements will out way the downside of losing Nick. We will be a stronger team in 2014 then we were in 2013. And when Nick decides to come home we will be that much stronger.

As for picking up other players, we are always looking for local talent that can help us both on and off the field. We have plenty of roster spots available but we’re not rushing to fill spots with bodies. We want to fill spots with players that will contribute positively to the organization. We did have Thomas Mantoni join us this past weekend in Syracuse for the first NAPS event and practice with Rhythm. It was great to see him back on the field and I believe Thomas is one of those players that might be able to help us on and off the field. Time will tell if we decide to pick him up or not. We also have a few other players that continue to work out with us on a regular basis and it’s always possible one of them will get the tap on the shoulder too.

Look for great things to happen for 187 in 2014.

Posted by SocialPaintball, Impact signs the 187 cRew captain Leival and Topgun's Martin to one year contracts.

Quote:
Edmonton Impact’s team owner, Bart Yachimec has wasted absolutely no time with filling the void left by players Tim Montressor, Greg Siewers, and Ryan Moorhead, just last week as all three decided to sign with Houston Heat. Younger veteran players, Nick Leival of Upton 187 and Ryan Martin of Trenton Top Gun Union both have agreed to a one year deal with Edmonton in hopes to help edge out a tournament victory in the upcoming season. Both Leival and Martin are youthful, yet skilled enough to help the team remain a championship contender.
Impact's Roster:
Justin Cornell
Dave Bains
Josh Ouimet
Raney Stanczak
Zane Yachimec
Zachary Yachimec
Justin Rabackoff
Nick Leival
Ryan Martin

Woah, huge blow to 187 crew. Great job on Impact's end to fill their void.

Big move for Nick, great pick-up for Impact; huge loss for 187? Is this opening grounds for 187 to acquire some seasoned vets? Maybe see one of 187s '13 roster rise to the occasion...

I honestly think Nick leival will prove to be a solid pick. The guys on impact will help him evolve into a solid player.

Does 187 even have the bankroll to do something like that?

They definitely don't. I'd expect to see either an open tryout, like they've done before. Obviously, a lot of people would like to see Keith Devit return to play pro in New England as well, although I don't know what his plans are with Vicious.

Not quite...Ollie was arguably the best player at the time in the game, and he went from Dynasty to the 'men. Both are rivals.

I hope Bornstein is still on the roster. That dude is a killer with a solid team behind him.

Excited to see Nick play with amazing players next to him as well. I think he will shine

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
