I'm elated at the Avs failing under Joe Sakic though. That clown is the most overrated player in the history of the NHL.
Are you kidding? Sakic was basically Steve Yzermans hockey doppelganger. Saying Sakic is overrated is saying Yzerman was. The fact that Brett Hull physically grabbed and sat Avery down and told him hes not allowed to talk to "Mr Sakic" shows the level of respect that guy earned. Through the whole rivalry Sakic was the only guy you couldnt hate. Pure class.
If someone is going after multiple guys who obviously have no intention of fighting and sucker punching them I feel they should be allowed to defend themselves and crack him over the head with their sticks. Game or not you need to be able to defend yourself especially when some ragehound is going over the line. What they should have done is pull his ass over the boards when he came flying at the bench instead of pushing him out.
when I was thinking on wether I should get the NHL GCL I came across a Dutch site,I think it was hockeystreams.com, that for a yearly subscription you'd get every NHL game plus AHL, KHL and some other leagues, I can't remember exactly but I think there weren't any blackout problems.
I remember reading somewhere it wasn't approved by the NHL so was affraid of losing my money and went for GCL instead
Apparently there was a thread here in LGW about the aforementioned site
