Topics I've Started

Hockey Podcasts

25 September 2014 - 10:35 PM

The TSN thread made me want to pick the brain of the board here. What are some good podcasts to recommend? As far as hockey goes right now all I have is the "NHL insider Bob McKenzie", and old Coach's Corners. 

 

I drive all day at work so it'd be nice to have something new to work. Columbus sports radio is actually decent, but mostly all OSU talk. I tried Detroit's sports station and it usually just makes me angry when they have talked about hockey  :lol:


Hartnell to Columbus for Umberger + 4th in 2015

23 June 2014 - 01:41 PM

per tsn...

Hartnell carries about the same cap hit for slightly longer term( $4.75m for 5 more years, compared to Umberger 4.6 with 3 more years). His game has dropped off a little, but he was still productive last season. Looks like Columbus may have found someone to be captain. 

 

Pretty good return for Columbus for someone they were ready to buy out. 


ROW vs Point based system

13 April 2014 - 11:26 PM

Going to a three point system has been mulled over for years. I think switching the qualifications to make the playoffs should be changed to the teams that have the most ROW. This eliminates the shootout as any kind of deciding factor for teams to get in, and has no effect on standings until a tie. Points would be a good secondary tiebreaker. I always thought GF was a bad tiebreaker, does't seem fair to defensive teams. I would be fine with the season series used as a tiebreaker, or even goal differential. 

 

For the record, I personally think shootout is better than a tie. Changing to ROW would keep anti shootout people happy, and keep the shootout in the game with less weight. 


Detroit @ Boston 10/14. 1pm start time?

05 October 2013 - 10:13 PM

They said today that 10/14 game is at 1pm, which happens to be on a Monday. What is the sense in having a game that early on a weekday? I realize it's Columbus day, but thats not exactly an observed holiday. LAME
