#2483546 Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

Posted by FlashyG on 13 February 2014 - 12:05 AM

If this is against the rules hopefully a Mod will delete it and I'll share it via PM, but if you are outside of Canada and would like to take advantage of CBC's webcast here is how you can get around the Geo blocking.


For those that aren't familiar with CBC's web coverage of the games you can select any event from any point in the games and watch it in its entirety. 


To access it you'll need to first connect to a proxy server in Canada (this one here was working when I tested it just now) 


IP -      Port - 8081

connecting to a proxy server is different depending on which browser you're using here is how you get to those settings in the most popular browsers


Firefox - Tools > Options > Advanced > Settings > Manual proxy configuration

Google Chrome - Options > Under the hood > Network > Change proxy settings > LAN settings > Use a proxy server > Advanced > HTTP

                         - If you're running the newest version of Chrome, go to Settings, then at the bottom click "show advanced settings" > Change proxy settings  > LAN settings > Use a proxy server > Advanced > HTTP - Then enter the IP and Port addresses and delete the numbers under "Secure" if there are any.

Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet options > Connections > LAN settings > Use a proxy server > Advanced > HTTP.


I've only tested it with Chrome and it worked great. Hopefully that helps my American friends who are busy during the day keep up with the games. (I can't help with the Beer Fridge unfortunately.)

#2479151 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by BadgerBob on 31 January 2014 - 11:09 AM

Gordon Bombay no questions asked. He just has a way at helping players maximize their potential...


He's good, but I'd rather have Coach Reilly. Taught the Minnesota Miracle man everything he knows. He tells it like it is and teaches kids to go for the dubya. It aint worth winning if you can win big.



But seriously, I can't picture anyone I'd rather have behind the bench over Babs. Maybe stick Chelios back there as an assistant to help light a fire under some of these guys. Teach them how to play with a bit of an attitude, and maybe make him condition them.

#2329656 Jimmy D Speaks out on Lockout, fined $250k

Posted by sibiriak on 21 September 2012 - 07:10 PM

the NHL will not pay them one dime until they are cleared by league doctors and to the owner's satisfaction that the player is 100% fit and able to perform

With all due respect Mr.D, I think the players only need to be 76% fit, because you are going to pay them only 76% of what you agreed and promised to. :P

Sadly, this does need to go to the Video Gaming section of Water Cooler.

I'll leave the link re-direction up though.

#2296664 Say what you will about Barry Trotz...

Posted by 55fan on 24 April 2012 - 12:18 PM

I believe that Trotz was serious. Everything he has said previously indicates to me that he looks up to Lidstrom as much as his lack of a neck allows.

Franzen's got to put the team on his back, doe.

#2291666 Hossa Smoked

I'd still take Hossa over Franzen.

#2286510 Happy Anniversary(April 15th)

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 14 April 2012 - 10:02 PM

60 years ago, April 15 1952, the Cusimano brothers started the most unique tradition in sports. The Wings better win game 3, if nothing more than just to honor some of the most important Detroit fans ever.

#2284183 WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

Posted by mmamolo on 13 April 2012 - 08:46 AM

To me, these are the types of situations that have separated the Wings from the rest for so many years. When teams think they can intimidate the Wings or think they're going to push them around and get up in a series the Wings always find a way to come out quick and grind. I honestly feel like we may see just about the best effort team wide from this year's Wings tonight

Preds in 6!

#2279564 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by LeonardSankar on 07 April 2012 - 01:57 PM

So after this years first round ouster what does Kenny do in the offseason? As far as I am concerned its a complete failure if both Ryan Sutter & Zach Praise are not in Wing jersey's come fall. Also I would make a play for Shea Webber b/c our first round picks take for ever to come on board and also they gave up a first for a piece of junk in Kyle Quency so might as well give up some firsts for something great.

What's a fact is that this team has been in serious decline since game 7 2009 and it needs to be fixed ASAP! This team won't beat any of the other 7 teams in the West come playoffs and being is 6th seed is a damm joke!

I would rather have shorter travel

Pheonix will beat minnesota. Scoring that goal gave us nashville over them. BIG mistake.
