Two threads today?!?  In honour of the 5 hour gap between games I guess...

As mentioned earlier, my GF is schooling me on hockey. Though an existing sports fanatic, I just never did the ice and ignored it. She's a Bruins girl, which apparently makes me a fan (to be fair, I have her obsessed with the Saints and she's from freakin' New England).

Anyway, I just look forward to the time when I'm knowledgeable enough to hang and and talk hockey sh*t with my favorite Farkers. I won't dare try until my hockey IQ gets to a level where I can truly talk smack - I've seen what happens when people make dumb remarks in the football threads. Jesus, I don't want that.

I'm curious because I've noticed this type of guy running his mouth in any sports thread. It's the exact reason I choose to only talk sh*t about something I know about. Will you catch me in a NASCAR thread? Nope. Baseball? Possibly, but I gave up up on that some years ago. NFL? Oh hell yes. Even there I make an ass of myself, but at least I know what I'm whining about.

/Southerner, therefore more or less relegated to football even if the NHL has teams down here

For the last 3 years the Vancouver Canucks have been beaten in the playoffs by the eventual Stanley Cup winner.  As a long time Sharks season ticket holder I can only say that this will probably not hold this year.
 
2013-05-18 12:44:51 PM
The Sharks were a different team at home this year.  Hopefully that holds true in the playoffs, and we go back to LA 2-2.
 
2013-05-18 02:26:03 PM
Sharks in 6, obviously.

Oh don't worry about it.  If you just put NewfounlandFogBank on ignore like most everyone else & pay attention you'll see that there really isn't a whole lot of in depth hockey talk going on.  Much of the chat is about the various ice girls that are out skating around risking pneumonia with as little as they tend to wear or the drunken goofball trying to sing over at the Cat's Meow.  The actual hockey posts that there are tend to be complaining about the officials (universal to any sport), 1-2 word posts if a goal is made by someone (either cheering or bemoaning depending on which color jersey you are rooting for) & then massive amounts of .jpgs by a few posters that can be glossed over for the most part (well, not Earguy's.  HIS you do want to look at....).  So jump in &if things look quiet, throw in a threadjack about how to cook a steak  or what brand of coke to mix in with your 18 year old scotch.  Either of those topics will certainly get a discussion going while we watch the game out of the corner of our eyes.

/I just thought of something, you're in New Orleans correct?  One of these nights we're going to have to send you over to Cat's Meow to let DD know that she's a fan favorite here & has been for a couple of years.  Perhaps even send song requests in through you if you've got a smart phone or a way to get online there....
//oh the possibilities....

See, there's a reason that we only let you into the playoffs once a decade or so, you take minor things far too seriously.  When annually 53% of the teams in the league get to play in the post season it's an achievement yes, but it's not THAT big.

Congrats on taking a better team to the very end of a game 7, that's an achievement to be proud of (we'll just ignore the biggest collapse in if not league history, at least in recent memory).  You should be proud too that the fire you lit isn't the same type that your countrymen/women (men mainly probably, we're dumb that way) lit out in Vancouver the other year...

Paul Brown had a good attitude towards excessive touchdown celebrations - have some dignity & act like you've been there before (the end zone in his case, playoffs in yours).  But welcome again to the ranks of professional teams, it's good to have you back.

For the long history of mostly fail since the last cup, even the dabbling with success in the 90's which was largely as a result of buying older highish end players for high draft picks and future fail.  This is different.  This has been building since Burke got here with the cupboards basically bare and had the scouts scour every nook and cranny for the overlooked, the undrafted, the waived... Some have worked out, some not, the ones that have, play like the mean it, an average guy that wants it will beat a star that floats, every time. (see Ovechkin) The Leafs are just a couple of really good players that mean it short of being a Very Good Team.  Dallas Eakins coaching the Marlies is getting the kids up to speed, and on the same page as the big club, with a Calder Cup final appearance last year (and second round so far this), the kids are getting deep playoff experience at that level...  Now that Carlyle is here, and pushing this young group we have solid management and coaching in place too.  And with Rogers and Bell  (Leaf TV, Sportsnet, and TSN) as both owners/content providers and the outlet for that content, ongoing failure on the ice wont be tolerated for long...
So forgive me for going on and on, this is new territory for this team in my lifetime...
And lastly, thanks for the welcome back, it's good to be back!

No problem, you forget who my #1 team above all else is, I know exactly what Burke & Carlyle can put together with an owner that is willing to build a team.... and frankly it worries me as in a couple of years I won't be able to snicker at the Laughs any longer ;-) .  You're still a few key pieces away but your future is looking FAR better than at any time I can recall in this century at least.

I've seen you post some smart hockey talk before, so you're a very good pupil.

I came back to hockey around 2005 after a long baseball hiatus, and I wasn't an in-depth fan then. I've learned so much from these threads over the years, and I've only had one a$$hole give me shiat about saying something stupid. The rest of you guys and gals are remarkably tolerant.

The side chat about food, drink and various life stuff (the chicks not so much for me as a hetero female) keeps it lighthearted, even when there is trash talk or deliberate negativity.

Yeah I know, & glad to see it too.  He's a media whore but he's good at what he does.  However he did have a pretty clear impact in getting the team that's on the ice to where they are.  The future looks good for both teams as things stand now.
