#2677174 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

last game of the season tonight

#2666640 M1. Washington Caps vs W2. Philadelphia Flyers

Posted by TheXym on 09 April 2016 - 07:22 PM

This is probably the worst possible first round matchup for the Caps. The Flyers will play a very physical game. This series should be a 7 game war, with the victor being ripe for the picking by the Pens.

#2666925 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by GoalieManPat on 10 April 2016 - 06:18 PM

The man wants to go home and spend time with his daughter with whom he has been away from for a lot of her formative years. Anyone criticizing him for this doesn't understand what is truly important in the long run. I say thanks for your service to the team Pav and I applaud you for making the right decision.

I'd be more worried about facing Boston or Montreal (with Price) if it came down to playoff hockey to be honest. They play way too big for us.

THIS is exactly the team Zetterberg and Datsyuk need around them to be successful. Not so the last 3-4 years. This clicks.

#2411071 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

1 more loss and Chicago won't belong on the same rink as Detroit.

I like staring at your avatar more than thinking about the outcome of this season...


You should see it in full-size.   ;)

THAT was definitely NOT THE TIME

rrasco would have had better timing than that...

I might argue that on certain points but as far as watching hockey at a reasonable hour is concerned, I couldn't agree with you more.

I was just going to post this lol! I'm loving the 7:30 start time out West, means I don't have to sneak out of work early!

#2306407 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by redwings1914 on 10 June 2012 - 06:04 PM

Don't let the door hit you on the ass Stuart. I don't feel bad for anyone who makes multiple million dollars a year in a occupation that is not family friendly and then complains about not getting to see their family. If he really wanted to see them more he'd just retire.

#2202390 San Jose Sharks

Looks like their team is improving each and every year. I can track back to three years ago when their third line center was Wellwood and they just traded for Boyle. Pavelski was youngser back then. Next year Couture emerged and they signed Malhotra. Still no Cup. Now they have excellent three-centers punch in Thornton, Couture, Pavelski and they just signed big body Handzus. In addition to that they traded for Burns, signed him, and signed White as well. I see then way better than they were last year. Personally, I think there is no way for us to get past them in the play-offs with Helm and Abdelkader as 3rd and 4th line centers. So, the actual question. Does someone see them as champions next year? To be honest, I do. I wouldn't bet a dime if we meet them in the play-offs.

#2298292 Informative article on Nashville's finances

Posted by Doc Holliday on 30 April 2012 - 03:31 PM

The worst part about this is in the article it's admitted by the Nashville government the Preds aren't profitable, and they're concerned about that, but funnel public money to continue running an unprofitable franchise anyways? The f***? Where is Nashville getting the money to throw at the Predators franchise? And how can they afford to keep paying this sum of money? I'm not worried about the NHL's profit sharing concept because it's within the same network of business, but when taxpayers get involved I've long been fed up with failing business (entertainment no less) getting bailed out and subsidized by taxpayers, especially when these local governments know they shouldn't be spending this money and can't afford it.

Anyhow, the NHL will have to do something drastic sometime in the near future (to avoid an inevitable financial meltdown) unless the league can sustain their own teams without taxpayer help, eventually the local governments issuing bonds to borrow money will find no buyer since once the local governments are predictably in over their heads in debt, and there's no confidence they have the means to pay back. The first thing that comes to mind is something that should have been done years ago -- contraction.

Ripple effect for the surrounding economy, is what I read from that.

Same reason big cities enjoy having sporting events there.
