#2483205 NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

Posted by roboturner on 10 February 2014 - 02:30 PM

I think this is a bad move. Doesn't anybody remember the last Olympics??


USA vs Canada Gold Medal game goes to overtime, the game got huge ratings and that undoubtedly got more people interested in the game of Hockey/NHL.


I mean you get 2 weeks of huge advertising for your sport, while losing no regularly scheduled games, and the owners are going to complain about this?? Are they f***ing kiding me?


(oh but if THEY shut down the league with NO games being played, they lose fans, they become a joke of a sport; thats all GREAT for the game of Hockey hey??)

#2481995 Vets over the Kids?, not any more eh Babs.

It's so funny that Holland believed Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Alfredsson and Kronwall wasn't enough veteran presence for this team

Yeah I didn't really get this mindset either. There is more than enough Vet presence on the ice and in the locker room. Absolutely no need to resign a broken down Cleary for those roles. Lets just thank the Universe Cleary turned down that rumored initial offer of 3 YEARS and who cares whatever dollar amount it was!


The kids have proven what a dangerous team this can be with them on it and it shouldn't have taken half the season and a TON of injuries to ice the best possible line-up.

Apparently Bert broke his stick upon learning he was not playing today. Maybe that'll get him going.


Though its gotta be frustrating being scratched over Cleary. I realized Bert hasn't looked great, but hes been better than Clears.

It just too bad it's been the "wrong" people out. Imagine these kids with a healthy Pav, Mule, Ericsson, Helm... Subtract the dead weight and we have a very dangerous lineup. (Maybe not dangerous but at least competitive)

Lets be honest, he looked horrible on the powerplay. Two PP dump ins and two times the Kings got it and cleared down ice.

Jimmy is back!!! He won't see a minute of ice time in Sochi, horrible pick. At least I can root for Sweden when US sucks it up!

#2471071 Seasons half way, thoughts?

I would love to see us dump the old broken crap and go young. Even if that means we miss the PO's. Just going so we can be "one of the best 16 teams in the NHL" doesn't do much for me. We are not a cup contender right now and could really be 2-3 years away. We have to have better players. be it trade, UFA, or draft.

The thing that sucks the most is we only have a few more years of Dats & Z. Maybe 5 at most.

We need to win at least one more Cup in that time.


I know doom and gloom has been predicted for this franchise for years, but who knows if we've got/will get anybody to step in to these huge holes that will be left.

I agree with that, as fan I am fine with not having access to everything. I mean, these teams are giving HBO access to a lot of stuff and its obvious, that both teams are uncomfortable having the cameras around. So focusing on the coaches might be easier, also liked this episode. I'm dropping f bombs too especially during huge traffic hours bring not n every sentence. Those are two Original 6 teams they don't need to go out of their way and follow some prewritten scripts or other stuff. Let's not forget the most important thing these guys are humans too they deserve their privacy

Dude <_<, there isn't a pre-writen script. They're not actors, they're hockey players who aren't used to their everyday conversations being filmed, which is why some of it seems awkward. And yes professional athletes and coaches are known to drop quite a few F bombs in the heat of the moment, I don't know why you're having such a hard time accepting that.

Man I was sooo looking forward to 24/7, having such a great keepsake to watch years from now and having such an inside look at the wings, but it's going to suck if we only win 1 game out of 12 that they are filming :annoyed:

I'll let Jimmy answer that:



haha Thanks!


The segment with Helm, Abs, Quincey and Smith was one of the most fakest things I've seen on TV. Really? A conversation about Datsyuk? God try to be more original. Obviously it was a set-up conversation. Probably HBO camera guys fed up of not getting crap for coverage and told em to talk about Datsyuk or something. The Alfredsson segment was much better. He was very natural and so were his kids (little goofballs) that's the kind of stuff you want to see. Not fake conversations for the cameras...

I doubt HBO actually suggested it, but it did seem forced and unnatural. Like they were thinking "Oh s*** they're filming us, we need something to talk about!"
