  1. 3/22 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

    I think it was during a shootout. Turco threw his stick during Zetterberg's attempt. Initially it was ruled accidental and no goal, but then the refs decided the stick throwing was intentional and gave Hank the goal to tie it up. I think the Wings ended up losing anyway.
  2. Sounds like the New York "Islanders" are no more...

    I'm surprised they wanted to move to the Barclays Center. That place definitely wasn't built for hockey. It will already be the smallest capacity in the league and there will be more than just a handful of obstructed view seats... http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/09/29/schwartz-the-good-bad-and-obstructed-of-islanders-hockey-at-barclays/
  3. How Do You Like Your Equipment?

    I worked at Metro Sports from 03-08. Probably have seen some of you guys around. I was never too picky about equipment except for sticks. If a customer was looking for a nice stick and asked my recommendation I would always try to steer them towards a Bauer one piece with the heel curve/open face (I think it was the P91A - Kovalchuk curve then, they may have changed that now). It's always been my favorite curve and I've personally had better luck with durability in Bauer sticks compared to Easton, Warrior, etc. A lot of people didn't seem to interested in the heel curve/open face though, maybe a little too extreme for what they're used to. I think you see it a lot in the NHL. Zetterberg and Franzen use very similar curves to that, as well as many others throughout the league.
  4. SC winners and the draft.

    Yeah, I really don't think this data is significant what-so-ever. Go back and check how many top 10 picks the worst team in the league had each year, I bet you find similar results.
  5. October Schedule Wallpaper Now Available!

    This is my situation as well. In fact, my laptop at home is 4:3 also. It's rather old, but still works great.

  9. Only hypothetical, Quick/Rinne

    I love Rinne's aggressiveness. He's in the #2 spot among goalies for me, just in front of Quick and just behind Lundqvist.
  10. 2011-12 Wings Eulogy

    This is my favorite sentence.
  11. Retribution for clean hits...

    Bieksa had a pretty nice hit on Brown not to long after the altercation, and that's all that should happen. It should be, if you hit our guy hard, we're going to hit you hard. Not, if you hit our guy hard, we're going to try to punch your face in.

  13. Ramage hit on Oliver

    No. This hit should be an example of what is acceptable. It absolutely was not blindside. Ramage came from the opposing players left side and hit him in the right shoulder. Sure, the guy was in a vulnerable position, but that's on him and his teammate who lead him there with that pass. Rampage just took advantage. And it's not just jumping on an opportunity to crush a guy, it's sending a message saying don't go across the middle of the ice. Maybe next time the guy gives up on the play. That's when the turnovers and scoring chances occur.

  16. Great job, as always. The iPhone 4 wallpaper looks incredible.
  17. Aaron Rome

    I don't get the "checking to make sure he was onside" argument. What was he checking? You don't take a second to look around to make sure you're onsides, you just have to know. The linesman will let you know if you're offsides. Having said that, I still think the hit was dirty, but 5+ games is a little ridiculous in my mind. Both players hold some blame, but Rome ultimately made the decision to hit him late. If it were up to me I'd give him 2, maybe 3, games.

    VAN/BOS: 4-3
  19. Here's the thing, ESPN dominates sports coverage in America, and most of the people on ESPN (in the US) don't know much of anything about hockey. These people like to compare the NHL to the NBA (which is ridiculous). The NBA is a league that is run by its star players, while the NHL has much more of a team oriented game, but this is something that the analysts don't understand. They say the NBA has Kobe and LeBron and the NHL has Crosby and Ovechkin. If the mainstream sports fan decides to watch hockey, he will then be drawn to those two players. I guess my point it, true hockey fans will still watch with no Crosby, but I think it will be tough for Hockey to grow without its most recognizable star.
  20. Jonathan Ericsson Appreciation Thread

    Since he isn't 35 he gets a pass? Because, apart from that, Ericsson is everything you described and he isn't showing that he has any potential to improve.

    and ZERO cups
  23. WCSF Game 2 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2

    Yeah, that's true, but it's time to put that behind us. If you think that the Wings will be thinking about what could have been in game one when it's time to play game five (or any game for that matter), then you're crazy.
