In Topic: New NHL all-star game format

19 November 2015 - 12:07 PM

The game used to be pretty awesome...not so much anymore, but it's not because the game or format or efforts have changed, it's because I've changed, I've grown up.


As a kid, I loved allstar weekend (still like some of the skills comp), but the game gave me the chance to see all the starts playing at once.  It wasn't often that I got to see a lot of them (there was no Centre Ice back then).


Anyway, I think people just need to accept it for what it is....kids love it, leave it for the kids.  Trying to improve it is a waste of time.  Trying to make it competitive where guys will try harder is not the right move.

In Topic: What is wrong with Anaheim?

Before last night, they had scored 6 goals in 8 games, so the positive for them is that scoring 3 goals in 1 game is a bit of an offensive explosion.

Not sure how you can say Ovechkin is the goal scoring god and no one is even close.  You'd have to at least admit that Stamkos is close.  If you take the past 6 seasons, both have missed sometime, but Ovechkin has scored 256 goals and Stamkos has scored 253 goals.  Stamkos has a better gpg stat over that period....if that's not AT LEAST close, not sure what would be as some would argue that Stamkos is the better goal scorer using those stats.  Perhaps it's because Ovechkin had 53 last year to Stamkos' 43 and the year before, Ovechkin had 51 to Stamkos' 25, but Stamkos only played 37 games, so that's a 55 goal pace over 82 games.

In Topic: P.K. Subban Donates $10 Million Dollars to Children's Hospita

It's definitely the largest (public) donation in Canada by an athlete.  Lindros would still have the highest one time donation of $5M though.

I'm not a fan of the publicity of this either, but I'm sure it's not PK's choice.  Either way, hard not to think this is anything but good.  Quick correction on original post though....not the largest donation in Cdn history though, not even close.  Ken Thomson donated approx. $370M in 2002.
