I'm just tired of hearing about conspiracy theories and entitled Canadians.




#2486260 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 22 February 2014 - 06:17 PM

trade Q to Edmonton for Ryan Smythe...

I'd rather put Q on forward than trade for that over the hill POS Ryan Smyth.  Like stated numerous times, Ryan Smyth = Danny Cleary.

Congrats to Finland.  Really fought hard all tournament and earned that Bronze medal.

Nothing if you're a Canadian hockey fan, but the game isn't going to attract much ratings wise, which is what NBC and the NHL was hoping for.  Had USA/Russia been in the gold medal game, it might have been a different story.  But in general, outside of hockey cities like Detroit, Boston, etc, nobody really cares.  

If that's the case then, why would it matter?  If most of the USA doesn't care, but literally ALL of Canada would watch it, then TV in general will still get ratings, not just NBC and why would the NHL just want to have USA in there?  More than half of the NHL is Canadian players.   Not trying to rag on you, but I'm not seeing why it matters what 1 station would hope for and how you would know that the NHL would prefer that?  It may not be your intent, but it makes it sound like the only thing you think matters is USA.   Your team has come up through the ranks and solidified itself in a top 5 in the world, your hockey systems are great, but 1 Olympic game is gonna make or break that?  I don't buy it.  Gary Bettman has tried to shove hockey down Americans throats for years in non-traditional hockey markets and it doesn't work, so Olympics or not, they probably wouldn't tune in cause they likely don't know it's even on, and like you stated, don't care.

Come on, Canadians. This whole "You guys would have trash talked up if you won so we are gonna trash talk you" is kind of childish. Who cares? Enjoy the win, and be excited for Sunday. Rubbing it in is foolish.

I was scared s***less of todays game.  It was a toss up and as I expected a 1 goal game.  I can't even express trash talk right now cause I'm just so relieved that the damn game is over and we survived.

Right, a few posters actually said a few days ago while trash talking they would rub it in our face, but if the US lost they would take their lickings, and and actually came in here to mock people for being quiet while tied with Latvia because we weren't winning. Even though most of us were working. So you're going to tell me a lot of posters around here wouldn't have been trash talking if the US won? It's easy to say that after you lose...

Those select 3-4 guys aren't on here right now.  rrasco is just defending his guys the same way we were.  If those guys come on here that were trashing Canada then by all means blast em, but we gotta stay classy dude.  It was a battle today and we got the best of them.  You usually are the level headed type.  You've clearly chugged too much Maple syrup.  ;)

The Canadian folks on Facebook are really making the rest of Canada look bad right now.


Facebook is full of high school kids whose brains haven't fully developed yet.

Selanne letting Ovi know who is the greatest 8.

Love it.  Though as a lonnnnngggg time Selanne fan, I prefer him as #13.

 

Selanne.jpg

I was at the game in his rookie season where he got 48-51 in a 7-6 win over Dallas and I'll tell you one thing, If Ovie EVER puts on the show Selanne has on many occasions, he will maybe eventually find a fan in me again.  His last few seasons of heartless lameness has turned me on him.

 

Or was it 49-52?  Long ass time ago  :lol:

No, just found it funny that so many were here for every other game. But when they're tied with a horrible Latvia team it's turns into a Canadian ghost town. But hey Canada just went up 2-1 so you can pretty much cue the rush of Canadians onto the boards now. lol

The other games that most of us were on here were on the weekend.  This game was on during work hours, hence the drop in Canadian activity.

How did Latvia get on the board?  That seems unlikely and confusing.

The most epic line change in Olympic history.  The bench quoted during the intermission as stating "it worked".  Buddy changes into one side of the bench, other guy jumps off end of the bench, stretch pass and breakaway.


This is strange, there are hardly any Team Canada fans on the board right now.  I wonder why?

I was watching the game at work.
