I think that lady who took the flag down herself was pretty cool though.
She won the most epic game of capture the flag.

lol - yes she did!

 

All that said - I understand both sides, and how they feel...Many feel the flag represents slavery/racism, and others feel it represents history/heritage...What I don't like is the knee jerk reaction that the media creates.


In Topic: Babcock's already losing it?

To each their own, I live 40 minutes south west of downtown Toronto, I only go once a year. I think it's a great concert town, but a bad sports town. The constant noise between plays at game is embarrassing. It's like Toronto fans have ADD and need to be entertained all the time. It's so loud, you can't even talk to the people you're with about the game. I refuse to go to Toronto sporting events anymore. Plus Toronto's crowded, they keep building condos downtown without being able to widen streets (they're going to have to eventually go to one way streets to move traffic), also the subway system is awful. My first trip to New York city I was impressed with how well traffic moved there after spending hours in Toronto traffic.

 

I know people who live downtown Toronto, and they love it, which is fine. Personally I spend more time in Buffalo and Detroit because it's cheaper, much better sports towns, and the traffic moves. But again, to each their own.

A few years ago there was a program on NHL Network about the number of fans attending games in Buffalo.

 

If I recall - nearly 40% of those in attendance at any home game in Buffalo are Canadian...Many are from the greater Toronto area, and make the drive down...Kudos to them!


In Topic: Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

That doesn't make sense Hasek's career wasn't successful because we won a cup in 2008 it was everything before that. If anything the 2008 cup probably gave the least boost to his HOF resume. 

I know...It was an attempt to point out how all netminders who made their way into the HOF have a few bumps along the way.

 

Yes - Osgood doesn't have the stellar numbers like Hasek, Roy, or even Belfour, but many here like myself feel that Ozzie's numbers are good enough to make it into the HOF, but not right away - more like another several years down the road.

Maybe if you can find a way to take away his 6 Vezinas. I understand the point you are making, but it is apples and oranges. Dom was how old when that happened?

Hasek was 43.

Am I the only one who doesn't think oshie is that great? Brouwer is bigger puts up more goals and has a smaller cap hit.

I wouldn't trade Abby for oshie sorry.

Oshie's a good player, but he seemed to hit his peak in the Sochi Olympics, and hasn't accomplished much since then.

 

Maybe having Ovechkin on his wing will help his numbers.
