#2467811 Going to Montreal

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 27 December 2013 - 09:00 AM

Hey there, I'm heading to Montreal for a weekend trip in a few weeks.  Anyone have suggestions for activities, must see places.  Also if you know of good places to eat.  Thanks! :)

#2467810 Hockeytown authentics is not really authentic

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 27 December 2013 - 08:46 AM

I just wish they would sell exactly what the players wear on the ice. I bought a game used practice jersey and it was much heavier and cut differently.

Dont get me wrong, I love the jersey but when they say authentic, I expect the same jersey the pros wear

I think the only way you'll get the heavier jersey is if you get the game worn ones.  My guess is it's too expensive to mass produce jerseys to the quality that the players have.  I do miss those days of the good CCM heavier weight jerseys (compared to the ones now)

The person below me is fed up with the lockout :ranting:

He's not an outside party, but that role is supposed to be Bettman's. Yes he is ultimately hired by the ownership but he is also supposed to be a steward of the league and operate in its best overall interests, not just act as a patsy for the owners. It's been mentioned in the press several times that he has a lot of latitude and authority from ownership in these negotations.

Obviously 30 different owners have varying interests. His job shouldn't be merely to galvanize them against the players union, but also to convince them to move in ways that help the overall league, not just their particular franchise.

That is the problem, he is not an objective 3rd party. If he's going to continue to be part of the problem he needs to go. I understand this is a business and he's trying to do what's best for it, but you can't make any money when you are locking out your players. Seems like they are making an effort but the NHL is not budging, it doesn't work that way...

I saw a picture of Kronwall with Buttman photoshopped in it, maybe in the lockout thread? :unsure:

And I think FB has Linda on their mind today:

THROWBACK THURSDAY: In Game 6 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals, the Avalanche tried pulling out all the stops to score on the Wings.

They even forced the refs to measure Dominik Hasek's stick during the game as they claimed it was illegal.

The ploy did not work as the stick was legal and the attempt failed to rattle Hasek. He posted a shutout to clinch the series, and the team moved on to win another Stanley Cup!

Hockey players and owners are "normal" people that are just more successful fiscally than you (and I). Good for them, it's free market economics at work. These posts harping on the amount of money being made reek of jealousy and class envy. Let's be happy that players get payed well in the NHL; it's a big that reason that many of them are in this league... and you get to enjoy watching them.

It's defnintely not envy, if they have the ability to make that much money good for them. I guess being a single mom that struggles with the bills every month I have a hard time having sympathy for the guys making millions of dollars and arguing over a few hundred thousand. Give me one of these guys' million dollar salary for just one year and I could make that work for a very long time. It's all about perspective and once you get that much money giving up even a little must seem like a hardship.

Our newest member...he's a little scrawny in this picture. If he works out and gets a little more buff these types of pics will be very nice!

I was just joking around....which is why I included the :P

Slow day at the office, I need something to pass the time. But I do agree with you, if someone decides to be greedy it's harder to side with them.

I hope he signs quickly with someone else, that way we will know for sure that we have the money to spend.

I do, and I try to be that person as well.

The person below me has dated more than one person at the same time.
