Anything NY is considered NYC by anyone not from the area. 

 

They don't realize that there's a big ol' state up there.

 

 

Fingerlakes resident here. You're my new best friend.

 

Old friends from Michigan: "Oh I didn't know you moved to NY, how's the big apple?"

 

Me: "......."

Not sure how many people know this, but the dot in the "I" in the Islanders logo is supposed to be where Nassau Coliseum is.  

 

I'm guessing they'll have to change that placement as well.

Born and raised in Seneca County.

 

and Buffalo ain't the Finger Lakes region. ;) It's Western NY.

 

 

Word. I just list Buffalo because it's the nearest NHL city.

 

Ontario county here ;)

#2582778 Statistical view of 3 on 3 OT

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 18 March 2015 - 04:04 PM

3 on 3 is just like a shootout.  You're creating a gimmick that we never see in a real game in order to manufacture a point for a team that doesn't deserve to win.
 
I'll make it simple.  If two teams play a game where neither team was good enough to win in "regular" play, plus OT, the game should end in a tie.  Neither team deserves the extra point.  Awarding an extra point just for the sake of it is stupid.  
 
If the casual American sports fan doesn't like that, they can go jump off in a cliff into a forest full of werewolves carrying STD's.  I'm tired of changing the game to appease imbeciles.  


This might sound crazy but I don't think not enjoying ties makes one an imbecile. I hate the shootout, but I also despise anything unfinished. 3 on 3 may be gimmicky, but it's at least an improvement on the shootout as it still at least requires some team work.

#2580777 Helm injury update and a very good one too

Quit blaming the line combos on Babcock's perceived insanity. Pavel ASKED for Glendening.

 

Can we all just trust that the PROFESSIONALS usually have a really good idea what they're doing?

 

No. That's boring.




#2580604 Preds don't postpone game, but get fan experience right

Posted by rrasco on 10 March 2015 - 04:57 PM

 

Oh I realize that. Just saying it's not the end of the world some places who aren't used to snow make it out to be. Seen cities fully shut down for only a few inches of snow. Some people do get scared driving in those conditions though, even up here. But if your confident enough, should'nt be a problem at all.

 

It's not just the people though.  For one, places that don't get snow often usually deal with more ice.  Ice is much more dangerous than snow.  Secondly, the cities are not equipped to deal with it.  No salt trucks, etc.  People also don't have winter tires in the South.  Northerners just like to think they are superior for some reason.  Not to mention I've been in Michigan in winter, nobody could drive in snow there either.

#2580177 Preds don't postpone game, but get fan experience right

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 March 2015 - 02:15 AM

Living in TN, I get to see a lot of Preds games here broadcasted locally, they are a strong squad, control games, and have the tools to go deep in the playoffs.

 

I know it's tough for this being a Wings fan site to have a strong opinion of another team that you may or may not watch too often, but they built their team the right way and I think they can contend and go pretty deep.

 

I also don't hate the trades they did make, I think the inevitable regular season losing skid came at the wrong time with the addition of their two new players, but long term, both will contribute in their own way. Santorelli was relatively strong on a weak Toronto squad, and Franson is a guy we would have liked to see here. 

 

I'll boldly predict conference finals. I also don't feel they are THE best team in the league, but I also don't rule them out of a potential conference final in the playoffs this season. They are better than some people here are giving them credit for. These games the Wings play against teams and seem to be lopsided, putting us on our heels, the Preds have done that against a lot of teams in a lot of games this year, good teams among lesser squads as well. They can dominate and control a game pretty firmly, and it happened without Rinne between the pipes also.

 

With failing teams in the South like Phoenix, I like to see Nashville thriving, competing, and attracting fans. It's good for the sport.

Maybe guy is a huge fan of country music?  

She got placed their in witness protection for her cooperation in bringing down a pay for butt pat scheme.

She was the ringleader, but she folded on someone.

Living in Minnesota and driving a manual you do learn very very fast. Although we have been lucky this year with the snow. Out east has had by far more snow then us all year. It's suppose to be around 50 this weekend though haha

Were about to get up in the mid 40s this coming week, but we got dumped on pretty good a while ago. I posted a picture of the snow drift against my house in the water cooler...
But we got rain on top of that last week, then it refroze. Its beautiful.

This is off my porch, which is about 5' high.

I tried to get a picture of it refreezing since it rained, but they don't come out too well.
