#2522876 Rendering of Joe Louis Arena from NHL 15

Hey, I'm just thrilled they have the lower bowl paying attention to the game instead of their phones.




#2522819 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Seriously, Kings fans?  Chanting "Lundquist" after your second goal?  Did you forget Quick was scored on twice first?

I hope we don't get too used to that.  :cheesy:

 

You are correct, sir.

 

Dear hockey gods:

When I said I enjoyed watching a SCF game that I didn't have a vested interest in, that was not a suggestion that this happen on a regular basis.  The Wings can make the finals (and win) every single year and I will be ever so much more happy.  Please accept my offering of a He Who Shall Not Be Named (but you know who) sacrifice to appease you.

I'm really liking not having a vested interest in the game.  It's nice being able to just appreciate the game and not ***** about the refs.

Beautiful rendition The Star Bangle Banner!

Best I've heard in a long time.

I think we shouldn't vote at all if it comes down to two Wings.   :lol:

I don't know if I want Lundquist to hoist the Cup or give it to LA just for taking out the Hawks.  Honestly, I'm good either way.

The Habs are looking to join Vancouver and San Jose in shenanigans.  I'm easing off the bandwagon.




#2521882 Inventor looks to drastically shorten ice resurfacing time

Posted by vladdy16 on 27 May 2014 - 06:39 PM

Paul Van Eijl of Minnesota has invented a machine that will resurface the ice in approximately a minute, which will mean no more Zambonis and no more Al.  

I understand progress, but where do we draw the line of putting people out of jobs?  And when do we progress versus protecting the history of the game?

BTW, this won't shorten intermissions; the CBA states it has to be 18 minutes.  This leaves that much more time for Musical Chairs at center ice.  Oh, yay.   :annoyed: 




#2521871 J-S Giguere to announce retirement

I still wake up sweating in the middle of the night hearing "SAVE by Giguere!"




#2520517 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 May 2014 - 10:05 PM

Me either, but the west team will beat boston. If sj makes it, boston is going down.

And Boston fans are now pissed because they're saying whoever comes out of the East will coast to the Cup.  :lol:

Holy crap!  The only thing that marred this 2nd round so far is Chicago moving forward.  I didn't dare to dream this would happen, but well done, Habs!




#2520226 Canada can support 3 more teams in 20yrs

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 May 2014 - 12:50 PM

Even with revenue sharing Phoenix or Winnipeg doesn't have the same money to spend that Detroit or Toronto does.

They're not generating the revenue; that doesn't mean the owner doesn't have money to invest like all the owners since the beginning of the league have.  Remember when the Preds owner told the press they were never going to spend above the cap floor to get as much revenue sharing as possible?  If they're not willing to invest in the team,  why should anyone else?

 

If I were an investor looking to sink my money into a new NHL team, I'd invest in a Canadian team or not at all.  The odds are in favor that a new Canadian team would do better than a new US team IMO.

A Sharks fan's already done it.  They gained over 1k in votes in the 2 minutes I was on the site.
