Did they specify in-person or not?
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Phone.  Pffffft.  WTG, Shanny.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

For people who went, how was the view? I always thought the downside of playing in a giant football stadium would be that you couldn't see the puck way in the back.

i was at the very top of the stadium.  view was ok, spent time watching on the big screen for sure.

 

but luckily for us (me and two leaf fan friends) had such amazing tickets.  we didn't even know until we got there that we ended up with box seats.  no lines for beer or bathrooms and all the heat we needed.  to boot it was the leafs alumni box.  sat with gary roberts, bob mcgill and family, lanny mcdonald, brad may.  was cool to talk with brad about that goal he scored that they didn't count years ago when playing with the wings.

 

overall i would not change that experience for anything...pregame, post game, was all awesome.

Yup, Shanny does it again.  The guy shouldn't be crucified, but a couple of games for a repeat offender is not untoward.  SO disgusted.

Unfortunately I can't say I'm surprised.  I think he should've gotten a game because of his history of hitting guys heads.  The play wasn't particularly vicious but Lupul could use a wakeup call.

 

For whatever idiotic reason the league goes easier on hits to the head that aren't the result of a check.

FFS, that's less than he spent on his mom's Christmas present in NYC


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Not surprised this league doesn't show any consistency in their decisions. Counting on them to police the on ice stuff doesn't work and never will.

breaking down salary to average worker he would make north of 20,000.00 per day. That's a half a days pay..  Give me a break. 


"When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

Lupul won't miss $10K, and his behavior is now encouraged.  He'll do it again and really end someone's career - or worse, at some point.  Way to go, Shanny.

It's the maximum amount allowed under the CBA, which is why he should've gotten at least a game.

I was listening to Leafs radio earlier - forget the player, but he was saying basically the Leafs got away with one.  Even Leafs players thought it was suspension worthy.  WTF, Shanny?

I know this is late (and random) but the game was awesome...  I hated that 2.5 minute horn in OT.
