Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

In other news, Edmonton's future sure seems to be getting banged up alot this year. They have 3 amazingly talented young players right now, and all of them have been sidelined for significant lengths of times over the past 2 seasons. Nugent-Hopkins is looking to be as fragile as his build/weight wo...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

I'm afraid that I wouldn't shed a tear if HNIC got scooped by TSN. Over the last couple years I've felt the quality of commentary on the CBC has gone downhill and has a pretty heavy, nearly homerism bias. Typically I find the play by play, the punditry and camera angle/replay better on TSN. I'll adm...

Re: The BS Suspension Thread

In general I am quite happy with the approach Shanahan has taken. I know there have been criticisms about consistency but the expectation that some fans have that he would be perfect (at least perfect with their line of thinking) is ridiculous. Lets put this into context... he replaced Cambell. Word...

Re: The BS Suspension Thread

Good points all the way around. I still think Tomas totally highjacked a team event that was supposed to celebrate the cup win. I found it illuminating afterwords how "coached" the player interviews were. You definately got a very different impression of Tomas there than the picture the media painte...

Re: The BS Suspension Thread

Let me start with this: I respect the fact that Thomas is very engaged in U.S. politics. More people need to take notice of what our leaders do. They also NEED to vote, but that is another thread sometime else. Bottom line however, Boston love them or hate them (really, really hate them) were invite...

Re: The BS Suspension Thread

The players make so much money that I don't think they care that they lose their pay for the games they sit. Personally, if the NHL wants the fines to be effective, I'd have the fine be double what the lost salary was. 21 game suspension would be 1/2 a season's salary. Run out of salary to fine, ta...

Re: Tanev recalled

or Tanev got called up because Sulzer was BRUTAL last game, and we have a favorable schedule where Tanev can get in 3 or 4 (5 or 6??) practices and a couple games in 2 weeks.. I was very please with Tanev's play last year during the SCF and happy to see the kid up to get a little more NHL calibre e...
