    No Nyquist?? awww...
  3. All the North American pro sports trophies are made of sterling silver. This means they are all relatively the same hardness.
  4. So I Met Some NHLers Yesterday

    My only brushes with NHLers come from work. I work downtown at Bestbuy (don't make fun) and Leafs come in pretty regularly. First guy I met since working there was Ron Wilson. He bought the nicest Mac laptop we have from myself and we just conducted business regularly. When he was skimming through his wallet I asked "What do you think of the team this year?" (this was my first indication I gave as to knowing who he was) He responded, "Best team Toronto has had since Sundin has been gone-what kind of discount can I get?" He seriously didn't take a breath between sentences. I offered him the 'student' discount which is to say $100 off in lieu of buying a service plan for $450. He said "Do I have to do anything?" and I let him know that I'd take care of it. He then asked for my card and he gave me his along with some nice gold seat tickets for the second home game of the season. The best NHL souvenir I now own is Ron Wilson's business card. MLSE Ron Wilson Head Coach, Toronto Maple Leafs Blackberry # Fax # Email Since then he referred JM Liles and Lupul to the store and they got in touch with me. They were furnishing there new condos with home theatre stuff. Both were nice enough guys and Lupul brought tickets to the store. He also left tickets on his counter for the installers. After I helped them out I texted Ron about the Wings game in TO and let him know they were my favourite team and he made some comment about them "being a good, but easy choice to cheer for". He had someone drop off the same Gold seat tickets to the store in an envelope with my name on it. Funniest thing about all this is how badly I wanted Wilson to be fired before I started getting hook-ups lol.
  5. Props to the DJ at the Joe

    I hate this song because it is the Leafs goal song... for every leaf goal.
  6. Tyson Nash

    I hope Dats does it again soon... just to prove to himself that Smith got lucky and it is still the most beautiful and effective shootout move ever.
  7. Detroit player on NHL 36?

    Just curious as to why you would say this? I think that Lids is a better choice but still Dats could have been fun!
  8. The ONE thing I can't stand about Wings games on FSD.....

    could hope they choose a better song i guess.
  9. The ONE thing I can't stand about Wings games on FSD.....

    I really wish the Fillet o Fish commercial was back. Also the new Rahmani commercial isn't as good since there is no wings soundbite. And also... I already know a pick-up truck is a better hockey player than Franzen, and I'm cool with it. Just stop telling me.
  10. 1/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

    What is going on with Lids lately?
  11. Henrik Sedin's Comments on Vancouver's Toughness

    From comments on youtube. POSTGAME INTERVIEW Interviewer: Was anything said between you two before you gave him those shots? Marchand: Nope Interviewer: Then why did you hit him? Marchand: Felt like it *37 Thumbs up (including mine)
  12. Winter Classic 2013

    But it came true!
  13. Krys Barch.

    I get where you are going. If some player is dumb enough to use *** as an insult and really mean it I guess a peer could receive it and really take it to heart. ie. successful trash talk.
  14. Krys Barch.

    Probably good because calling someone *** who isn't makes you sound like a grade-schooler.
  15. Your favorite DRW memory of 2011

    I think Dat's backhand pass to Fil in game 6 was it for me. Seeing the Joe jump on that play is just awesome. in fact let me post my fav memories of this year all in one nifty video.
  16. Your MVP Thus Far

    Howard is the man at this point obviously. Datsyuk deserves lots of recognition as well... especially if you take the first 15-16 games away. He is probably at a 1.5ppg pace or something.

    Hate Pronger but man Giroux and now Pronger? Wonder how that team feels about now.
  18. shea weber's trick shot from the stands

    Best part was "I would have painted the same thing if I knew I could turn the canvas horizontal".
  19. Can Conner reasonably be sent down?

    When will people stop calling Miller dead weight? http://www.hockeyanalytics.com/Research_files/2011_NHL_Review.pdf That formula would prove that Miller is great for his money. An easier calculation is this: How many points does Miller have? How many does Eaves have?
  20. shea weber's trick shot from the stands

    Have you ever tried to stand behind the goal line and fling a a puck down the surface straight in? No guarantee it goes in every time even on level ice.
  21. Official "24/7" 2011 Thread

    Icefilms had every episode next day. www.icefilms.info For anyone not in the know, this is typically the best source for streaming anything as far as reliability is concerned.
  22. wait til you see this goal celebration...

    I think the celebration was fine. Nice goal.
  23. What this team needs

    Yea he did. Hunger is def an issue.
  24. Kids Helmet

    Most kids are wearing 5500's around here. Even the 4 year olds like my cousin.
  25. Kessel 2nd Best Player in NHL?

    Since moving to Toronto I'm obviously being brainwashed by the media but I like to think I'm still knowledgeable and know how to watch a hockey game despite what Joe Bowen is yelling at me. Kessel is markedly improved this season. He is the fastest (maybe best) back checker in their top 6. He is their best shooter in all situations including the SO. He is obviously their points leader as well and TBH that guy is paid to score... so no one is mad that he is producing there. He isn't the best player in the league but amongst wingers to this point he may be it.
