MyRandomName: Someone explain how Smith wasn't a finalist for the Vezina trophy again...


The Yotes are league owned, so people would probably biatch about conspiracies non-stop.

rickythepenguin: i thought maybe, as i said above, the NHL had a kind of "no standing during play, upon pain of ejection" rule like in EPL.


It's not a "under pain of ejection" thing unless you're being a total dick about it. It's more of an unwritten rule than anything.

It's not fair to just give it to a 4x6 brick wall.

Reminds me of Sean Burke (hey, who is Smith's goaltender coach again?)

Dude was Jabba the Hutt in net, it was almost unfair -- but he played for Hartford, The Whale, so his win-loss record didn't reflect the fact that he was a giant in the goal.


Hartford, "the Whale," they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime.

ytterbium: Mr.Tangent: ytterbium: The Preds have only scored 2 goals on Smith this series? Whoa.

/haven't watched much of this series at all

8 by my count.

Sorry, one guy said the Preds weren't getting anything through Smith, the other guy said "just 2".


Didn't seem correct.


If you care, he was talking about shots on that sequence where Nashville had like 8 shots--only 2 were on goal, the others were blocked by the Coyotes D...

rickythepenguin: Donnchadha: The risk of things flying into the crowd makes it necessary to prevent obscured sightlines. Therefore it's considered polite to watch the game while sitting, unless something particularly exciting is happening -- i.e., last 10 seconds of a big win or something like that. You aren't allowed to get up or return to your seat during play for this reason, and you have to wait for a break in the action.


huh. thanks for that.

i thought maybe, as i said above, the NHL had a kind of "no standing during play, upon pain of ejection" rule like in EPL.

i haven't been to a 'Yotes game ever. i only watch hockey during Game 7s / olympics. pretty farking cool game, even if i don't understand icing or the neutral zone trap. or crosschecking. and crosschecking...that's when they check in the back, right? how come when the puck gets behind the net there's no crosschecking then? cats are all the time getting checked in the back.


Two hands on the shaft of the stick and you give somebody a shove with it. Usually only called if it results in a fall.

paj: RminusQ: Wow the Canadian(?) commercial in the Klondike bar "Five seconds to glory" series is even more terrible. The guy's challenge that he has to survive for five seconds: "Actually listening to his wife".

What happens in the US version?


There's one that's "Sitting through a chick flick" and another I can't remember right now.

HeathenHealer: mikaloyd: [i.imgur.com image 640x960]

Yup. In 1994 if you would have told me Phoenix and Nashville would be playing hockey in the NHL I would have thought you were stealing a bit from Back to the Future 4.


FWIW, there were strong rumors during the 1995 Devils Cup run that they were off to Nashville. Then we won the Cup and told Nashville to go cry in their country music.
