#2566066 2016 World Cup of Hockey

Posted by Son of a Wing on Today, 03:47 PM

How about Germany vs. the rest of the world?

 

I think that could work.   

 

Only if they wear their Olympic outfits...

#2565876 Toronto rumored to host 2017 ASG, and a Stadium Game

Posted by darkmanx on Yesterday, 08:17 AM

Pretty cool way to celebrate the 100th anniversary, would be even more special if there were fewer outdoor games, and if the all star game wasn't a joke.

But still.
Pretty cool.

 

100th anniversary for the NHL and 50th anniversary of the Leafs cup drought. Perfect!

Meant to post this the other day but I got sidetracked and forgot. He's added 4 more points in his last two games to up his ppg even more. Pretty good company to be in if you ask me.

Expecting him to keep scoring like he has recently is probably unfeasible. Consider that in the past 15 years, no Big Ten freshman has ever averaged 1.39 points per game in a season. Minnesota's Thomas Vanek (1.38 in 2002-03) and Phil Kessel (1.31 in 2005-06) came closest.

Source with close ties to NHL ownership tells me Toronto will get All-Star Game and an outdoor game in 2017 to mark 100th anniversary.

Can it track a bad pass by a goalie?


That would be the "JUCK F***ING POTT"! ;)

In all seriousness, I do agree with roboturner that using it for determining if a puck actually crossed the goal line could be a good thing. Heck, anything to offset the incompetence of on-ice officials would be good.

#2565842 GDT : NHL Skills Competition/60th All-Star Game

Posted by RedWingsRox on 24 January 2015 - 09:56 PM

And seriously, stop with these horrible effin go pro cameras on the refs helmets.

Half the time you can't even see the puck go in...
Its not cool.
Its annoying.

 

I get motion sickness and start feeling nauseated when they show the feed from the GoPro cam.

"Mam, this is an elementary school spelling contest. Could you please go back to your seat and refrain from any further outbursts?"


Having participated in the 1986 National Spelling Bee, I found this way too funny. I'm glad I don't have to deal with the parental outbursts at my choir concerts.

For some reason, the Wheelz on the bus bit made me think of the "JUCK F***ING POTT!!!1!" poster from a while back.

I think it's splitting hairs by whether you call it a mental health issue or an "emotional issue"  But if a guy says that thoughts of trying NOT scoring a goal have crossed through his mind while playing, it's something that can't be totally ignored.  I'm definitely not a Franzen basher, but at times, he has literally looked like a guy who is afraid to be out there.  I don't think it's any more of a character assassination than it is to speculate about a player with a history of a physical injury who has been struggling on the ice might be having a recurrence of the injury.

 

There are all sorts of mental health issues, only some of which deal with emotions.  That's the difference.  So no, it's not splitting hairs. 

 

Otherwise, I agree that it's perfectly reasonable to wonder why a guy's having a down year IF he is indeed having one.  However, in this case I think his character is being assassinated based on two things...A) We already know why he's out of the lineup.  He's got a neck injury (whiplash) which has been diagnosed.  B)  He's not having a down year.  22 pts. in 33 games puts him on pretty much the exact same scoring pace as he's produced at for the whole of his career.  There's nothing to suggest that his game is suffering, and if it were, there's nothing to suggest it's anything other than the injury sustained during the hit to the head. 

 

He's injured.  He's not a malingerer, and if he has had (most aren't permanent) mental health issues, there's no reason to believe they're what's keeping him out of the lineup or causing a down year (which he isn't). 




#2565663 State your unpopular opinion

Posted by Jedi on 23 January 2015 - 08:41 AM

It's a game, and a manly one at that.  It's taken some time, but the news stories are finally back to men arguing over who has the bigger balls.


Or softer ones, if you're Tom Brady...

Which brings me to my unpopular opinion. I can't stand the New England Patriots.

Except he'll probably be given a Tim Horton's gift card + 24 of Molson Canadian from the other douchey hockey parents.
