Player punches ref - Where is the respect?

08 March 2013 - 12:35 PM

Man, this made me so angry... and I hope at least most of you agree with me that this has no place in hockey...

... what is going on in hockey that is producing so many cheap shot artists? I don't remember stuff like this happening in the late 80's, the 90's or the early 00's. Physicality? Yes. Fighting? Absolutely. Hits and ticky-tack stickwork that would be considered penalties in today's NHL? Those too. But blatant disrespect and carelessness towards the safety of others on the ice... what the heck is going on??? Is there something wrong at the youth level? Is it just a generational thing? I don't know the solution, but I *REALLY* wish it'd stop. :\


Pittsburgh Wing Fan Get-Together Interest?

31 January 2013 - 07:54 AM

Hey, I know this side of the LGW forums doesn't get much traffic, but it seemed like this should go here instead of GenDis (if I'm wrong, PLEASE move this over to where more people are likely to see it, mods!).

 

I just recently moved back to Pittsburgh, and was wondering if anyone knows of any Red Wing-friendly bars in the area and, failing that, if there are enough Pittsburgh-area Wings fans that we could organize and try to convince a bar with cable and NHL Center Ice that it'd be worth their while to show wings games in exchange for the regular red-and-white clientele that would shuffle into their establishment. Hopefully there already *is* a place, but if not, hopefully we can get some interest!
