I'm really old. I preferred it when the NHL season wasn't shut down for weeks for a bunch of Olympic hockey games that will be poorly televised.

He should say thanks but no thanks and get his s*** together for the team that signs his pay checks.


Turn down a chance to represent your country...what?

And that's when you have to realize that for the rest of the world, the NHL is what's poorly televised and the Olympics are an amazing opportunity to actually see all the best players in the word on live television. 

 

Not to mention it's a great tournament that the players and fans love.

Congrats to Jimmy!  I, for one (apparently!  LOL~) am very proud of him.   It's likely he will not see any ice time, but if needed, he will rise to the occasion. 

Or butterfly, as the need may be.


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

Wow. He shouldn't be on that team. I might even take Schneider over him on the team right now. What about Ben Bishop? Is he not a top goalie this year? He is a finalist for the Vezina at this point. 

 

Bylsma has said that he's going with body of work over just this season.
