Okay so exhibition games start tomorrow, meaning here's the hockey season.  The Vancouver Canucks are the only team to keep their top line, Bertuzzi, Naslund and Morrison, all you other's are gonna suffer this season.  We picked up Anson Carter too this year..here's for black guys in hockey uniforms!!!

*awaits the onslaught of haters*


i'm sure you'd be a whiny little bitch if you got your vertebrae snapped for no good reason. whether or not it was provoked, a person is supposed to surpress their urges of seriously injuring someone. if someone came up to me and called me a dick and i shot them in the face, do you think i'd get away with it because i said "he provoked me."? no. of course not. and neither should he. had this happened anywhere else he'd be in jail, but since he's a professional hockey player he can get away with crippling someone for life. i don't see how anyone can defend that, he didn't think things through and he fucked up, he shouldn't be allowed to play. the end.
step away from the fact that you admire him as an athlete for 5 minutes and think about it. sure, he's a great hockey player and your team would be hurt without him, but don't think about that for a second and just straight up think about what he did. if steve moore attacked bertuzzi from behind and crippled him, would you defend him? of course not. so get off your high horse.
Title: The official hockey thread
Post by: rosebud#9 on Sep 28, 2005, 12:16 AM
holy shit, get the fucking sand out of your vagina...

First off did you even pay attention to the replay..you see all those Colorado players toppling all over him after he goes down?? yeah that's a HUGE factor in why his neck broke, there's no way to prove that Bertuzzi was the one who physically did the damage.  Of course we can argue that if he hadnt decked him in the first place that he wouldnt have fallen to the ice but this arguement has been discussed so many times.  I do admit that if it were the other way around I'd be pissed off and yeah I was disgusted when I saw it happen..I was actually at that game..but considering the league is allowing him to play and Bertuzzi is sorry and I know he means it, he should be allowed to play just as Steve Moore would be if the tables were turned
Title: The official hockey thread
Post by: one weak on Sep 28, 2005, 05:44 AM
you gotta be kidding me, right??

bertuzzi sucker punchs him (like a bitch) then drives steve moore head first into the ice. THAT'S what broke his neck.

bottom line, bertuzzi should have retaliated by turning steve moore around and fighting him like things are supposed to be done. he is just a stupid motherfucker who gives hockey a bad name.

seriously, an attack from behind is the lowest thing you could ever do. the NHL let him off easy because he brings in money and they lose money every year, (esp. last year, duh), that's it. i still find it repulsive they let him get away with it. ugh,

As a diehard Red Wings fan, I'd just hope everyone who was picking Detroit to finish in the bottom half of the conference has been watching.

I'm as happy as anyone, but we've always been great in the regular season. Best winning percentage of any of the big 4 professional North American sports in the regular season since 1990 goes to the Detroit Red Wings.

The playoffs on the other hand, have been major disappointments the last couple of seasons. Here's to hoping to a better playoff year this season, the things that matters to Detroit.

As for the West vs. East...the last 10 Stanley Cups, 6 have been to the West, but as mentioned, East has made a run at evening things up.

i get excited about hockey, the sport that keeps me entertained and that i've been playing since i was 6. it keeps me in amazing shape, it gives me something to do, and it's given me a team with which i've made many life long friendships.

from what i know about you, and the things you get excited about based on your posts (and i'm basing them only on your posts and not what you're actually like because unlike you i don't make judgments about people i don't truly know), you smoke weed and make internet friends.

True that. Got kicked out though they did give a good game. Three goals are better than anyone got against Finland in this tournament so far.

But I think the US had the oldest team in the tournament, Chelios being the oldest player at 44.

So far seems like Russia will be the next opponent. Canada is getting shut out again.

And now, Sharing Lungs' Resident Sabres Fan shares his views:

REST IN PIECES PHILLY/FORSBERG! I couldn't be happier with the Buffalo boys right now, they did a tremdous job of shutting down a considerably tough team. Philly's defense is nothing, but their forwards and Esche should have posed way more of a challenge than they did. Not that I'm complaining, who doesn't like an 8-2 or 7-1 victory? Yaaaaayah!

The Sabres are facing Ottawa next, who they will beat in 7 games in order to face New Jersey in Round 3. At that point, the praying begins.

And on an unrelated note, how the FUCK does hockey relate to baseball in any way???

Even with the variable pricing thing it's still pretty expensive here, too. According to Sabres.com, one nosebleed ticket for a Leafs vs. Sabes' game is $50 plus about $5-$10 in convienience charges. I think it would be worth it, though, because every seat at HSBC rocks.

Growing up, I fell in love with hockey and the Buffalo Sabres because of a sports channel called MSG that we get around here. MSG used to show Devils games too, so I started developing a liking for them as well.

These days, I respect them as a good team, but I seriously am starting to hate them. If Buffalo meets Jersey in the playoffs this year, it's gonna be a wild ride.

EDIT: I just purchased tickets for the March 9th game against the Minnesota Wild!!!  ;D

you seem to think i give a shit about that. i'm a hockey fan first and a flyers fan second. if they do well, fine, if they don't, fine. i love the game more than i love the city a team comes from, what jersey they wear, and all that bullshit. it's stupid to have such passion for a team because within 2 years, 95% of the team has been dealt elsewhere. how many players on the devils now were on the devils last time they won the cup? 5 at the most. since the flyers are doing so terribly right now i'm shifting my sights on better teams like the sabres, the flames and the ducks. i love hockey. you love the devils. that's the difference


oh and for the record, i'm not from philly, not even from pennsylvania. i don't care about the city, or the rest of the teams from that city

no, i really don't. i bet with my roommate in november that the flyers wouldn't end the season above .500. i don't care if they lose. and so what if i'm a 'frontrunner?' good teams are a lot more fun to watch than bad teams. i'm not going to claim that i'm a sabres fan, and i've always been a flames fan, but why watch a shitty team when you can see the power of a good team?

one year is not overachieving. how many years has he been playing? no team even wants him, if i were a player i wouldn't want to be playing on the same team with him. he's a scumbag, and just because he scored 100 points once doesn't change that

That was one year when he was with us, probably 2003-2004 ?  but it wasnt that many points...and dude hasnt played at all this season, maybe like 1/4 of the season and then he injured his back, went for back surgery and is now playing with Detroit and still hasnt played a game yet this year..

Chris DRUUUUUUUURY!!!

What a fucking game!!! I literally had tears in my eyes after Straka scored because of how good of an effort the Sabres showed all night. Then Chris hits the back of the net with seven seconds to go and we go fucking ballistic. I run upstairs screaming and jumping around, then run back down to continue the celebration when...BOOM! My head slams into my low cieling at the bottom of the stairs. I was bleeding for a minute and a little woozy, but I couldn't miss overtime to go the the ER. Maxim finishes it in OT, oh my god, the celebration is even bigger.

An hour later, I'm in the Emergency Room getting seven staples in my head. SO WORTH IT!

Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: 4th Eye on Aug 13, 2008, 06:02 AM
Anyone followed what's been happening in the NHL during summer? Transfers and drafts, I mean.

Might be because I'm bored at work but I've been checking the NHL news daily and I've gotten excited of the upcoming season. Probably the biggest thing was Marian Hossa's trade to Detroit. Reigning champions have almost the same team as couple of months ago but added a world-class player into the roster. I got to admire how they fit that roster under the salary cap. Definitely strongest contender for the Stanley Cup, again.

Strong contenders for the other end of the standings, Toronto, have made couple of...uh, surprising transfers. Hagman and Finger with the salaries probably too big for their skills. Sundin's still thinking his future. If the Maple Leafs can't keep Sundin in their roster, they're pretty much fucked. Though maybe there's a reason for going down; maybe they want the first pick of next summer's draft...after all, the hype for the next wonderkid, John Tavares, has been quite big.

Speaking of Sundin, there are still couple of players in the same situation, mainly Joe Sakic and Teemu Selänne. I really do hope all of them keep playing and start the season from beginning.

I'm predicting the Red Wings to win it all, Ovechkin will score most goals and Thornton wins the Art Ross Trophy. Rookie of the year is probably first round pick Steven Stamkos though I hope that Janne Pesonen of the Penguins, best scorer in Finland last season, breaks into the two first lines of Pittsburgh's roster and put up some good numbers.

Well, it's still too early to say anything but I'm expecting an entertaining season anyway..............
Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: bright lights, big city on Aug 13, 2008, 06:49 AM

yeah i havent really kept track, just looking forward to see how the Blackhawks do. Also my goal is to see them at that winter classic on new years at Wrigley field against the Red Wings.

I'd guess the Blackhawks will do better this year. Kane and Toews are a year older, they got Campbell and Huet and if Havlat stays healthy, a playoff spot is possible. Just makes me wonder why they signed Huet since Khabibulin already enjoys a huge salary, or maybe they're trying to sell Khabby. And they got promising goalie prospects too. Future looks bright.

My hometown team are having an outdoor game too this year. Should be cool.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread

Yeah I follow it all. Hagman is getting paid a justified amount, finger got overpaid but that's what happens with free agency and the cap going up every year.

Sundin, I hope he comes back, not to make the playoffs but just to see him on the leafs one more season would be awesome.

Leafs that I'm hoping step it up:

Tlusty
Kulemin
Steen

If not it's going to be a long season. Atleast we added some grit with hollweg, mayers, finger and frogren. Not the same pushover as last season IMO.

just that the blackhawks make some noise, that'd be great. but i think that the sharks overall are the team to beat.

Nah Detroit is always the team to beat, but I see good things for the Hawks in these playoffs.

Hawks/Wings   vs    Devils/Penguins

I hope you're right. And I did briefly forget that the Sharks normally choke, and look who they're playing in the very first round (Anaheim). That could be tough.
And I hate the Wings so much, they are getting older, I'm just holding out hope that eventually they need to collapse? Hopefully?!? Please???

The Florida-Chicago tour went well for finns. Koistinen got two goals in the first game, including shootout winner and Niemi blanked the Panthers in the second game. And what better place to do so than in their homecountry.

Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: sing blue silver on Feb 05, 2010, 04:09 PM
i'd say washington or chicago are the top 2 contenders for the cup.also suprising how well los angeles is doing this year. sadly my beloved red wings arent doing so well after all those injuries. its certainly been an interesting season. personally i'd be most happy seeing new jersey come out on top since i know detroit isn't looking too good for the cup right now. i guess we'll see what happens.

Yeah Detroit is just getting healthy again, franzen back any day. Big trade for the Maple leafs to land Phaneuf too,

Chicago
Pittsburgh
Detroit
New Jersey
Washington

Anyone outside of them would be a suprise.

I hope so. our goaltending is total shit though. big game because we have Niemi going, who is pretty much our only hope, since Huet thinks about sucking dick during games instead stopping pucks.

yupp they lost tonight but it was such a sick game.  I had great seats, 8 rows up right behind the goalie.  My boss hooked me up with his season tix.  But Caps won in a shootout.   Caps and Pens are definitely the 2 teams to beat this year.

Detroit is almost completely healthy, so they will definitely be a factor.  But I honestly don't see them doing anything really special this season.  The Hawks are definitely playing good hockey.  I think its going to be between the Pens and Caps.  I don't think anyone from the Western Conference can beat those 2.........

Super bummed we lost,but hopefully we can come back with a win Monday. Got my tickets yesterday,they were a bit more than last weeks game,but I just can't miss this game.

either way montreal played an impressive series and i'm from a montreal hating family so it's kind of ingrained in me to not like them. game 7 will either be exciting or a blowout. i'd like a good old fashioned nail biter on this one. however for tonight i want detroit to just straight fuck phoenix up.

haha thats so sick dude.  I hate the Redwings with a passion, but I also love Zetterberg and Datsyuk.   They are an incredible organization, and Babcock is a great coach.  08 was sweet 4 u but Pens winning in game 7 in the Joe was so god damn sweet for me  ;)  Im glad Detroit stomped tonight, Im ready for a rematch!

i am. i just hate pittsburgh. also if detroit makes it through (which isn't looking good) i'd see montreal as less of a threat. but then again taking out two teams like pittsburgh and washington back to back would be pretty intimidating. overall i think montreal would just make things more interesting. they seem to be the team everyone is watching.

Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: bright lights, big city on May 12, 2010, 09:18 PM
that was definitely amazing, especially when they did it in the 3rd, because i got really nervous when it was 3-1 and the canucks were threatening again to score. the SJ/Chi series will be completely different, which kind of worries me now. SJ is fast as fuck, which i think we can keep up with, but then riding a rookie goalie this far into the post-season is not the ideal situation.

another big story is how the hell does Sami Salo play 2 days after literally busting a nut?

tonight's got a couple big games! i'm pulling for montreal!

Datsyuk is probably my favorite player to watch.  I think he has the best hands in the league.  But I don't think anyone thinks the game better than Crosby.  He always finds a way to get it done.  

I also think Chicago will take it home.  Their just so fucking powerful.  It's unfortunate the 2 best teams ran into a hot goalie. Kinda a weird playoffs this year.  I'm not counting Montreal out yet.  They have proven they can come back.

i don't know, Leighton was definitely much better than in game 1, just their offense could only get the one goal. they've been winning with him, i think Laviolette will stick with him.

Post by: bright lights, big city on Jun 05, 2010, 05:05 PM
yeah probably. he hasn't done anything this whole series. i saw coach q split up toews and kane in the 3rd and then campbell scored after that. and it was good to get andrew ladd back in the lineup. i love niemi, but he needs to get back on track tomorrow. i let game 3 slide, but in game 4 there were two goals that were definitely his fault.
but i'm really getting nervous about this series now because really, game 5 is now MUST WIN. we haven't won in philly since like 1997. and this post-season the flyers are now 9-0 in games 4-7 combined.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread

yeah they're really dropping the ball on this season. a lot of the big teams from last year are really going to hell. pittsburgh, san jose, calgary. at least my beloved red wings are consistent as ever.

That 24/7 made it look like Fairy Tale vs. Nightmare, Pens were all happy happy and Caps were more resembling the current Devils, though there's only one point separating the teams now...Overally though, nice program, well done and entertaining. Gotta watch the other episodes.

WIth his "power" of inuit reach he probably can't get many punches in, no matter who he's fighting. I don't really know the player that well, I just found that hit to be the bomb.

I like this one too. Check the side angle shot at 1:02. Carcillo is lucky he didn't hit him with the whole body.

Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: bright lights, big city on Apr 27, 2011, 08:50 PM
Luongo looked shaky last night, we just couldn't really get any offensive momentum. But is was a satisfying conclusion to a what turned out to be a great series, so I'm really not pissed off. I think the Hawks have some good young talent for next year, AND we finally have a franchise goalie. Crawford was absolutely unbelievable the last few games. We just need our stars to get that championship hunger back that they lacked most of this season.

I'm looking forward to potentially seeing the Preds full off a nice upset.

And Nashville winning in double OT!?! Fuck,I thought that game was never gonna end. I have to say,Vancouver's defense when it comes to someone getting close to the goal is awesome...it's like there are 4 goalies working. Nashville had a strong first period,but when Vancouver scored that first goal,they started lagging big time. And that first goal on Luongo was pretty embarrassing. I think Rinne did an awesome job,seems like he's been the only one on the team working. My boys better step it up next game,and I'll be there to cheer them on.

Wow...tonight's game was noting but horrible calls by the refs. Hooking? Are you kidding me?!? Kesler was holding Weber,and that wasn't the first time in the game that Kesler played like a bitch.He and Luongo should win an Academy Award instead of the Stanley Cup. Then the Canucks had 7 players on the ice at one time and they let it go. Shady calls most definitely. Nashville didn't play their best,I'll admit,but damn a bunch of bad calls.

oh my beloved wings are making me so happy right now. i don't know why datsyuk is only getting so recognized this year. he's been one of the top players in the league (and in my opinion THE best player in the NHL) for about 4 or 5 years now.

Probably because he's actually healthy this year and the team is so good. Zeterberg, Franzen, Lidstrom, Kronwall, Rafalski, ect... Even the secondary players like Cleary and Eriksson are real good.

Crosby is the best, dunno if he'll be the same though.

for my European NHL fan friends:
Quote
The National Hockey League on Monday unveiled a “tender process” for international media rights to live hockey games to be sold throughout Europe and the hotter, star tropics of Africa and the Middle East. The league believes hockey is already making strides overseas, as 26% of NHL players come from outside of North America, and with regular season games and exhibitions being staged in Europe

Not my most hated team in sports (probably now belongs to the Miami Heat), but I think I personally dislike them now even more than Detroit. I smell a list brewing...

-Raffi Torres is just a thug that shouldn't even be allowed to play
-Luongo's a pussy. his nickname is Bobby Lou. Seriously?
-The green men fans next to the penalty box. It's funny on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It was kind of funny 2 years ago when PHILADELPHIA had their version of it. But now it's just lame.
-I love hockey uniforms, they're the best jerseys out of all sports. That said, the Canucks are ugly. The logo is terrible.
-Sedins. I know their twins, ginger twins at that. But do they really need to have the same exact haircut AND facial hair? Annoying. And creepy.

Nice city though.

Neither one will be moved anytime soon. Tampa has one a cup and is on the rise once again.

The Panthers however on the rise as well after their activity this off-season have a deal on their stadium until the 2030's. If anyone tried to move them, it would be one messy legal battle after another. Hockey in Florida can work, it just needs to be run properly and it looks like both teams are finally headed in that direction.

So on top of all death this off-season, did you guys know next off-season we're getting a lockout? Great timing and all, now that the NHL is finally recovering from their last lockout debacle.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: Crazylegs on Sep 13, 2011, 12:03 AM
What! Stupid, lame, and gay. have i understood correctly if i think that means that there won't be any nhl next season. An explanation of the concept of a lockout would be much apreciated.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: bright lights, big city on Sep 13, 2011, 12:23 AM
It could be like the NFL strike that just happened, where a time will come and both sides realize they need to play to make more money, and then shit gets worked out. The current NBA is bad though, the owners and players are so far apart. Teams are losing money left and right because they hand out huge unnecessary contracts.

I don't know much about next years's NHL lockout, but I've heard that it's not good. That could be just to scare fans, though, because I'm pretty sure they have the same problems as the NFL: a lot of teams are making good money, players want a bigger piece, and then an underlying safety issue.

I just heard about it recently, and it scared me, because hockey's been a roll lately. But this coming season is the only sport I'm actually anticipating. Ain't gonna worry about it till next August or so.

They can't afford another lockout. Won't happen, they must have learned from the last one.

A close friend of mines father in law is a sponsor for the Preds (Bradshaw Collision if you care to see if I'm bullshitting),and he's had several people 'in the know' that have confirmed he hung himself. There have also been several media outlets that have said Wades father has talked about this. Just sayin.

Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: Crazylegs on Oct 02, 2011, 06:24 PM
that's a good guess. I'd go with something like that aswell. LA are going to be a force to be reckoned with this year. And Pittsburgh have looked very good in the preseason without Crosby.

I actually thought we had a good chance of making the play-offs this year, but I'll take a division :). I didn't want to post anything on here or any other boards cheering the team on because after 12 years with no play-offs, you see a lot of things go south really quickly.

Home ice should help, and I do not think this series is going to be so one-sided like the experts are predicting, I think this one could go 6-7 games and most of them ending in OT. But anyways good luck to everyone in the post-season! I can't wait for things to kick-off on Wednesday.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread

I think the Devils will win that series, and might even make it to the cup.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: bright lights, big city on Apr 09, 2012, 10:08 PM
I plan on watching at least parts of every game. I'm actually pretty excited for every series because either I am a fan of one team (Hawks, Ottawa, LA), hate one team (Canucks, Sharks, Caps), think it'll be a bloodbath (Philly/Pitt), or it'll be a close series (Preds/Wings, NJ/Fla).

I think the Devils will win that series, and might even make it to the cup.
A team in the West I'm scared of is Nashville. Rinne's so good in the playoffs, and their power play is number 1 this year. They've had everyone's number in the Central this season. I think they might be my preliminary pick for the winner in the west.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread

NHL: Raffi Torres Hit on Brent Seabrook Game 3 4/17/11 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nomG4dU-mTk#ws)

I'm still pissed about this one. First game back from a suspension and he does that. And then he only gets a minor penalty for it, as well as no further suspension. Ghey.
One year later to the day, Torres strikes the Hawks again. Seriously, why is this scumbag even allowed to fucking play?

Raffi Torres hit on Marian Hossa. Chicago Blackhawks vs Phoenix Coyotes 4/17/12 NHL Hockey (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2mX7LqBGo4#ws)

He wasn't penalized. Seriously.

And this game occurs hours after Andrew Shaw gets suspended for 3 games for making minimal contact on the blue waffled-pussy that is Mike Smith. This league and their "regulation" of the violence is turning into a goddamn joke.

I was a bit upset when I posted that last comment. It's good hockey and will be entertaining but losing the emotional investment just changes the feeling of the game for me. I certainly won't enjoy it as much but I'll still watch it because it has been (even if not in my favor) good hockey.
However, my main focus is now switched to the QMJHL, specifically the Halifax Mooseheads. It's nice seeing people in my home town excited about local junior hockey again since we've been doing so well in the Memorial Cup tournament.

I haven't watched any of the slovakians games so i'm not sure what to expect. Russia definitely has the stronger roster though.

And about that embarrassing 4:12 defeat against Norway, its alright. Everyone I talked to about this defeat was like "ah ok, I don't care about this sport anyways"

That's generally how all of norway feels aswell, no one gives two flying fucks about hockey in this country, and it sucks. That is except for when the national team does well in tournaments. All of a sudden it's all the rage for a few weeks.

So about this boycott I was going to be on... it lasted about 5 minutes. I had to watch my 2 favorite team Opening Day (Hawks, Kings) and the Kings raise their banner. Was hoping Bettman would make an appearance and get mugged, but whatever.

It also helps that the Hawks are much better than I was expecting - still haven't had a loss in regulation through 10 games.

Well they aren't taking the 1 seed from us, but they do worry me. I can't wait for the playoffs, it'll be a dogfight, and as usual it could be anyone's Cup. LA's back, Vancouver's looking better. I'm really hoping the Hawks play Detroit in the 1st round - last time they'll play each other in the same division or conference.

And hey Minnesota will finally be in Chicago's division next season! I think they and STL will be the new big rivalries for the Hawks.

And now for something completely different: PLAYOFFS! (and world cup which interests my european ass)
Let me hear your predictions.

I'm gonna do what i  usually do and say i think Penguins will take it this year, but i'm kinda secretly hoping that the Wild will be the wild card (lol), but they've got to slay the dragon in the first round. And also i've got to root for Rangers seeing as my fellow countryman Zuccarello plays there.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: bright lights, big city on Apr 29, 2013, 02:20 PM
no no no no NO! No Wild!! I think the Hawks will beat the Wild, it'll tough. I was really hoping to face Detroit one last time in the playoffs.

All around, I'm liking all the matchups. Looking forward to seeing the Islanders in the playoffs for once, Ottawa/Montreal, StL/LA...

For the Finals, I normally am all about the upsets and lower seeds doing well (this comes from years of having Vancouver or Detroit as the 1 seed). But this year I'm hopeful for a Hawks/Penguins finals. By far the 2 best teams out there, Pitt is so stacked, and I'd love to beat my friend's favorite team. Plus it's a rematch of the 1992 Finals, haha.

New season! Looking forward to these new divisions in action. Still think they need 2 expansion teams in the West to even out the East and West (preferrably Seattle and Portland or a Canadian team). The Pacific looks stacked though. I've read that San Jose is the real deal this season, as is Vancouver with Tortorella coaching now.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: Crazylegs on Oct 02, 2013, 11:47 AM
Good opening night it seems like. From the highlights all three games looked pretty intense. I'd agree that San Jose and Vancouver look good, but don't they always? They gotta start thinking about winning some cups before their star players retire, or become "not so star players".
Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: bright lights, big city on Oct 02, 2013, 02:27 PM
Exactly, they have been known to choke. An interesting thing I read from one of ESPN's writers was that they went out on a limb and picked the Coyotes as their best team in the West. I know they have a really good defense and coach, but jesus that sounds like a stretch. They were so terrible last year, but the guy thinks being stabilized with new ownership and all that will work wonders. We'll see I guess.

Hawks looked pretty good against a good team, so that's all I care about, haha.
Title: Re: The official hockey thread

Yeah I remember when they were awesome, haha. Obviously, I'm going against them because St Louis is causing enough trouble for the Blackhawks.


But honestly they really need to screw up to miss the playoffs. I think the new alignment means that at least 3 teams from every division make the playoffs. And after StL, Colorado, and Chicago, there are some baaaad teams in the Central division. Either way they are already exceeding everyone's expectations (probably their owns fans, too).

The West has been outstanding all year, so I think the winner comes out of Colorado-Anaheim. Most likely the Ducks in my opinion.

At least the Hawks got their money's worth out of the hit that probably ended their season:

Title: Re: The official hockey thread
Post by: Crazylegs on May 14, 2014, 06:21 PM
At the moment he's the only one yeah. Unfortunately, no one cares about hockey in Norway, so we barely have any hockey rinks. It's ridiculous. In Sweden and Finland, i'm guessing, it's almost as big as football (in Finland probably even more so) which is all anyone cares about here except cross country skiing. The last few years have seen a rise in interest in certain cities around the country, but the coverage of the top league even is horrendous. During the playoff finals this year there was a game broadcast without commentaries and one fucking camera. It brings my piss to a boil! It's an infinitely more interesting game to watch than football, that's just fact.

From my vantage point, that really is just unfathomable that they wouldn't give a shit about hockey at all.

Announcment for the hockey enthusiast who enjoys the managerial/coaching side of things(video games):
Eastside Hockey League is back! I never even played it before, but i did play some football manager, which is essentially the same thing. It's addictive as fuck. Grab an early access version from steam right meow.

Cool, I had never even heard of that. Love general manager modes in other sports games.

You been catching any NHL games? Ready for the playoffs? As usual I'm nervous about the Hawks, especially since the West is going to be a buzzsaw. The Central division has just been brutal this year.

It's like an in depth gm mode from NHL xx. Way in depth.
I'm always keeping up to date on nhl, man. Bummed about the avs season, obviously (i guess one couldn't expect them to repeat what they did last year). Chicaco will be a contender every time. Their core is so fucking strong.

I guess i'll be rooting for frodo again this year though.

I really do want a Hawks-Rangers final.

Any predictions for the cup this year? I'm hoping for a Sharks - Capitals final. Would love to see Jumbo Joe and Marleau get a cup, or Ovi for that matter.

I'm just starting to accept that the run between the Hawks and Kings is finally over. So accepting that (probably my 2 favorite teams) I'm hoping another Western Conference team wins it all. They would definitely earn it, since each team has a brutal path to the cup. I think it'll be either the Stars or Sharks, and am rooting for the Sharks. They've earned it after all these years, and just think of the Brent Burns beard potential!!

For tradition's sake, I would like to see the Caps choke once again before reaching the Finals.

haha, yeah. Looks like it's going to be Pens vs Caps in round two. They would love to lose that one i'm sure, with the superstar rivalry and all.

Really psyched about the Nashville vs Winnipeg game tonight.Can the jets beat the preds?both teams in such good form for now but home ice for the preds and scheiffele's missing for winnipeg. Perhaps not that crucial when they have such good depth in the offensive (like nashville) but he will be missed. Should be interesting to see how laine wil act out there when he's just one goal behind ovechkin. He should be shooting from all kinds of places when he likley likes to pass Ovie in scoring and get the Rocket Richard Trophy in the end of the season. I hope Forsberg gets one or two tonight, it's been a while (feels like it). I'm not sure who will be between the pipes but I will say 3-2 to nashville, then goal number 4 in empty net - so 4-2. Go preds!

The preds are unreal lately! Second place in the west too, Las Vegas, who would have thought?
It's a good year to be a hockey fan. So many spectacular players at the moment. It's gonna be interesting to see if Laine overtakes Ovechkin, either way, Ovechkin is a fucking machine still. Fourth fastest to reach 600 goals, in this day and age is an enormous achievement. I wouldn't be surprised if he reaches #2 on the all time goal scoring list if he plays into his late thirties. Gretzky's 894 is probably out of reach though Unless he keeps the same pace for the rest of his career.

Preds just came out blasting yesterday,3-0 after just 9min, 15-1 in shots... timeout and goalkeeper change for winnipeg .what an opening it was-total dominance.it was awesome to watch.winnipeg changed tacticts after the timeout and played much more physical to change the way things were going, and it worked.2nd period was winnipegs, 3rd was back and forth but preds could keep them away. good offence, probably best defence in the entire nhl and goaltending is very solid too.rinne maybe even gets the vezina the way he has been playing.complete team. 3-1 mirrored the game i think.

I dig vegas too, they play with such speed and with good chemistry - really fun too watch.all the leftovers players that weren't protected during expansion seem to want to show the old teams that they aren't that bad. A pity now with all the injuries though, can't wait to see Neal and reilly smith back in the lineup!
