lol, after seeing Weber's slapshot reached 108.5mph, I wanted to tell my girlfriend and observe her wonder at how hard some people can shoot a puck.  So I'm all "Hey girlfriend, guess how hard Weber shot the puck?"

"ummmmmm 200 miles per hour?"

"....."

 

When I told her 108.5 she wasn't even remotely impressed lol

I don't want to see a bunch of arrows and graphics cluttering up the screen when I'm just trying to watch the game, but this technology could open the door for a lot of real-time (or near enough) stats that commentators could utilize.  It would be cool to know if Shea Weber just broke 100mph on that shot that Glendening just blocked.  The trajectory thing could also help in determining if a puck was deflected before it went in the net.  I can definitely see uses to this, but let's not travel back down the same road that led us to the glow-puck.

I suspect Detroit was called, and Datsyuk/Zetterberg/Tatar/whoever probably turned them down, opting for their tropical vacation plans and relaxation instead.

I've always liked that saying. I imagine Holland phoning Mantha; "Anthony, it's Ken Holland. How's about coming to Detroit for a cup of coffee or two?"

So Mantha packs his hockey equipment and gets really excited, but then Kenny takes him to Starbucks.
