Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Lehner is finally sober and properly medicated. He has always been skilled, but has been very up and down, mixing stellar performances with disasters. And he has had drinking and drugs issues as well. Turns out he is bipolar and to top it off also has ADHD. He finally got himself to rehab, where he ...

Well.... there is also this rule: Rule 185, Section III: iii. An att...

Somebody also said (or implied) something along the lines of: skilled, high-end players aren’t developed in the AHL.
That must have been Jonathan Dahlén. ;)

Re: Scandal at the 2019 Women's World Championship

I think it is basically a 50-50 call, if the ref had waved it at once, it would still be controversial, but not that big a deal. But the on ice officials called a tripping on the goalie, and then declared the goal good. At that point the war office intervenes. It is not the refs that ask to have it ...

Refereeing scandal in the final of Women's World Championship in hockey. For the first time ever Canada missed the final, after losing 4-2 to Finland in the semifinal.

Re: World Championship 2019

Too early to get a grip on the rosters but both Dahlin and Pettersson will supposedly play for Sweden. Good!
