Gotta say I'm surprised those guys didn't have a little more pride out there.

Man, the Sabres/Blue Jackets game earlier was better than this.

Keep battling. Something's gonna go our way. We're overdue.

 

Am I the only one that read this in Lenny Kravitz's voice?




#2472893 Certain NHL attendance metrics are better than NBA

IMO, one of the things keeping hockey from mainstream acceptance is its inaccessibility for the casual viewer. While HDTV has helped the game more than most anything, the rules and flow of a game seem a little much for the "once in a while" viewer to get past. I also wonder how much shorter attention spans factor into this. One of the things I love most about hockey is that you could see 10 minutes of game time go by with no commercial breaks. Maybe some folks can't focus that long on anything.

Nice job by the league managing to squeeze the required amount of Cindy Crosby.




#2461196 Lundqvist, Rangers agree on extension.

King Henrik didn't have success? This guy is more often than not the only reason the NewYorkRangers are even in the mix for the playoffs. An annually Vezina nominee, the best goaltender in the world by far and probably the most beloved player they have letting him go was never an option. Thanks to the stupid CBA GMs can't get creative with contracts anymore because they are all under a regime if they don't follow suit = losing a draft pick in the first round.

 

8,5 per year is a lot but the king certainly deserves it.

 

30-37 career playoff record and does not look like the kind of goalie that could take a team on his back through the SCP. Except for an Olympic gold medal, what has he really done in the post season, when it really counts?

Marchand high sticks twice in :15. Dirt bag POS.

TRY TO SEND HIM DOWN

He's a potent goal scorer.

Hmmm, 25 points in 21 games. Over a full season that's about 100 points. I suddenly feel better.

Detroit baseball fans can relate to this..it reminds me of when a baseball team brings in it's closer and you just know he's going to blow the save before the first pitch is thrown.

 

As a NY Mets fan this is a sentiment I can relate to.

It's almost like the rest of the NHL has progressed to the next evolution of play and the WIngs, well, the WIngs have not.

Think we could make the playoffs with more OTLs than wins?

Years from now, when I'm a drunken hobo living on the streets, I'm gonna see someone I used to know, before I was a drunken hobo living on the streets.

 

And that someone is gonna say to me:

 

"Holy s***! I know you! What the hell happened to you, man?!"

 

And I'll look him in the eyes.

And I'll say one word:

 

"Howard."

 

And then I'll die.

 

Your tombstone will read "At least we got a point"
