After last year's Stanley Cup, I will no longer troll hockey threads. The sport is more consistently suspense than any other. From now on I will only make fun of mullets, the sorry excuse for beer that is Molson, socialized medicine and the worthlessness of the Loonie

Ugh, Another 6 months of no street signs. I live on "Red Wing Street" and whenever Detroit does well, kids steal the signs.

I was only a fan of EA Hockey '94. It went downhill after that.

The Sea of Red will rise once again.

Suck it you panty-wearing-white-towel-waving Canucks. Suck. It.

"ARE YOU READY LEGION OF DOOM?! HERE COME THE BUFFALO SABRES!"

I've been listening to Rick Jeanneret calls for the past two weeks to prepare.

I am wearing what is quite likely the only Curtis Glencross jersey in BC at work today.

Go Devils!

It will be nice seeing Marty break another record this year.

Ottawa will win the Cup, beating Chicago (and Marian Hossa).

2009-10-01 03:54:20 PM  
Well we cut Shanhan, and one of our AHL goalies took a skate to the throat in practice.

Not a good week for the Devils that's for sure.

WOOOOO.

Time to go to my last live draft before the season starts. And, what a surprise, this one is at a bar as well.
 
2009-10-01 04:19:18 PM  
For tonight: Go Sharks, Bruins, Habs, and *gag* Flames.

For the rest of the season:

I don't expect the Cup. I'm just hoping they're not as nauseatingly bad as last year.

Can't you locate the street you live on without a sign? Woman driver...

If Shanahan's available, I'd love to see the Wings take him. I'm not sure he'd help the team out at all, but he was one of my favorites back when he played in Detroit.

Wow... live drafts for fantasy hockey. That's dedication. (I would do it but not enough local hockey friends to make it work.)

Blades of Steel on NES and NHL 95 on SNES for me, because I didn't have sega.

and then there was one game on playstation that was the first where you could smash someone through the boards if you hit them hard enough...groundbreaking technology. NHL 98, methinks

/Eric Lindros was good for something.

The only thing that sucks about the NHL is the management.

Maybe I can finally find an answer....

Back in the mid to late 90s at Flyers games, at the Spectrum as well as the F-U center, they would play a hype video...

In some little office, the guy behind the desk would tell you to get up...

Go over to the window....

Open it....

And then yell something.


Where in the hell is that clip from? Was it a movie or show?

Subby here,

I tried to take the high road by not leaf/flame/oiler bashing in my headline.

But Rev.K, you started it so this one's for you:

We owned you last season, and better God-Damn believe we will own you this year.

They play that in Vancouver too.
It's a clip from the movie Network.

I seem to recall the Canucks being behind the Flames all season until your hot streak down the stretch, right when injuries were plaguing the Flames.

Your best hope this year is for them to finish dead last and to get the first overall pick.

You are indeed recalling correctly the portion of the season in which your team was owned.

/There's no excuses in hockey
//You had cap issues as well

I always liked Selection Sunday better. NCAA tourney begins, then as soon as that's over, hockey playoffs start. Once that's over, I have a three month paid vacation.

Whatever makes you feel better is fine by me. The Canucks won't win the Northwest this year and the TSN panel picking them to go to the Cup Final is absolutely ludicrous.
