#2582758 Statistical view of 3 on 3 OT

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 March 2015 - 02:57 PM

3 on 3 is just like a shootout.  You're creating a gimmick that we never see in a real game in order to manufacture a point for a team that doesn't deserve to win.


I'll make it simple.  If two teams play a game where neither team was good enough to win in "regular" play, plus OT, the game should end in a tie.  Neither team deserves the extra point.  Awarding an extra point just for the sake of it is stupid.  


If the casual American sports fan doesn't like that, they can go jump off in a cliff into a forest full of werewolves carrying STD's.  I'm tired of changing the game to appease imbeciles.

Paul Coffey wooden Sher-Woods all the way! Still have a bunch. Don't think they make them any more. The perfect wrister flies off almost automatically with that curve. 

#2575532 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by scotzman on 27 February 2015 - 02:14 AM

I'll never get the time I wasted reading this "Mickey's Drunk" garbage back...

Honestly, I'd say if you don't understand the greatness of Mickey's analysis, you probably haven't been a hockey fan for long enough. There's obviously some nostalgia on my part, but Mickey's an old timer who knows the game and understands it in it's present form and the glory days as well. Nothing like those "old time hockey" stories.

Show Mick some respect...

#2571491 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by Echolalia on 17 February 2015 - 12:34 PM

I took it as more Kenny joking around because there was such a long period with no whistles. Or maybe Mickey wanted to say chime in and something but couldn't because of the ongoing action and Kenny knew that (after all, they can see each other and their body language whereas we only have their voices to go off of). Anyway I don't think there's any animosity between them because they typically have excellent chemistry and often joke around. I want to say that Kenny and Mickey celebrated Thanksgiving or Christmas or something recently, but I might be misremembering.
I also love all that Mickey has to offer as a color commentator. He is an entertaining individual, not the cookie-cutter type of boring, safe personality that you see so often in sports. The guy is passionate, and what I love the most about him is that he comes off as a fan of the game of hockey moreso than a fan of the Red Wings. Sure he loves the Wings, and it's his job to pass out praise to our team, but he doesn't shy away from passing out praise to players or coaches from other teams, hates weak penalties regardless of who gets the power play, and hates dangerous plays and dives regardless of who's doing them. It's good to have that kind of voice on tv, I think, instead of the mindless homer who puts his team above all others regardless of the situation as well as the game of hockey itself.

Water has a taste, but no flavor.

Oh Evander...




Looks so uninspired. Like he's waiting on hold for tech support. You'd think there'd be someone more exciting he could pretend to call.

Sooooo glad that my hometown went viral, haha.

I was a York devil and that was our home rink so it was hilarious seeing that all over.

Did they ever get the wheels on the bus?

The looped (vine?) video of this is infinitely more satisfying. From the passionate "GET THA WHEELZ ON THA BUS" to the hilariously droll "way to go, paul," it has something for everyone. The more you watch, the funnier it gets.

Except he'll probably be given a Tim Horton's gift card + 24 of Molson Canadian from the other douchey hockey parents.


Ahhhh nothing gets the wheels on my bus going quite like a chocolate frosted and a moulson

That's the point. I WANT TO KNOW!!

#2554819 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by kipwinger on 08 December 2014 - 12:07 PM

I'm not sure why anybody thinks it is dumb for a reporter to ask a hockey player about Nelson Mandela when said hockey player is attending a ceremony specifically to honor Nelson Mandela. 


If Justin Verlander attended Margret Thatcher commemoration night, and when asked said "Ms. Thatcher is the best player the WNBA has ever seen, and I loved watching her play when I was a kid", he would be a fool.  As is Bernier, clearly.

If you don't know who Nelson Mandela is then your education system failed you...
