Of that list, Cleary is the one who is frustrating me the most. Iím pulling my hair out watching him play because heís totally ineffective out there. Hit someone, take shots on goal, just freaking do something with all the ice time youíre gifted.
Stuff about Team Canada and the Summit Series: 1) Of the thirty-five man roster, seven players played in all eight games, while five played in none. 2) Fifteen players have been elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame; two of them played no games. 3) Two goaltenders played the same number of games. 4) "The Slash" was arguably the turning point of the Series, although both Canadians would later diminish their roles. 5) One player scored three game-winning goals and, except for USSR comebacks, would have had two more. 6) In the blink of an eye, the same moment is captured by two different individuals. 7) Game Four was important for two major reasons: A) Phil Esposito gave his famous post-game speech and B) The fans reaction, both during and following the game, was embarrassing to both the players and to the rest of the country. This was the touchstone game of why people have come to realize that Vancouver has some of the most ignorant hockey "fans" in all of Canada.
Maybe I'm not as cool as the rest of you, but I don't see what the problem is with the new logos. Looks better than the old one, IMO. Then again, I'm not angling to be a judge on the next season of Project Runway.

Give me a break. It was a blown call that directly led to a Canucks goal.
It's a bag of s*** excuse. The lost faceoff and two failed clearing attempts that resulted in the goal. Its not like the lost icing put the puck in the back of the net. The Wings have to be better, not look for excuses.
