Re: 2018 Winter Olympics - PyeongChang

Now if this does not convince the North American public of the need to let NHL players compete at the Olympics, I don't know what will. :drink: The public didn't have anything to do with the decision, did they? Wasn't it all Bettman? I usually only say this during World Cup (FIFA version), but Go G...

Re: 2018 Winter Olympics - PyeongChang

It was a good move to the net by the German to score in OT. A was a little unfortunate that Fasth appears to sweep it in himself in an attempt to get his glove on the rebound shot. Do you think this German team has a good chance against Canada? Interesting to see the Czechs find success in the shoot...

Re: GDT: Avalanche at Vancouver

Edler with a big hit on McKinnon, knocking his helmet off... Actually MacKinnon hit Edler. Got his helmet knocked off then pushed and shoved a bit. Either way. Didn’t break my heart to see him leave. They exchanged hits a few times in the first period. Yes, the last one was initiated by MacKinnon a...

Re: What to do about the Sedins? (Poll)

The mentorship aspect is purely a bonus. They won't be around if that's the only thing they can provide ( see Jagr ). They are currently third and fourth in team scoring, and there's a big drop to fifth. Unless you think there is an entire line that will parachute-in next season and match their offe...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Coffey was really good at coasting into the frame while the other team was celebrating a goal :lol:

Why would he use tube skates? He played in the era of the Micron 1070, among many other molded blade-holder skates.

Re: The Great Jim Benning Debate!

It's generally better to have more continuity at the GM level than less. Teams that are constantly turning over their front office are rarely successful. JB has done well enough to get an extension. Offer 2, maybe 3 years and get on with it.

Re: 2018 Winter Olympics - PyeongChang

So, you only support Team Canada if the NHL participates?
It might end up being quite a decent competition. These guys are certainly extremely excited about the opportunity.

Having said that, I'm not watching it live at 2:30AM. PVR it shall be.

Re: The Rebuild...

I'm with you on that Mick. We have to hope that the young guys can see the future and aren't too worried about, for example, the last 5 weeks. Speaking of moving forward, as far as Benning's renewal goes, why would you not give the guy a couple years to let the team he has been building actually pla...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Is there any chance that the Knights may find a 7-game series more difficult? It's one thing to roll up, play a good systems game, maybe out-work the other team and grab the two points; it's a bit different to do that four times to win a series. Personally, I'm hoping they struggle a bit more once t...
