Now that they have shaken things up i sure hope they do better this year than last,i wonder how long its going to take management to figure out their goaltender (Price) is all smoke and mirrors (sucks)and from what i've seen is just not NHL caliber.
Chara's Hit on Pacioretty
YouTube - NHL 3/8/11 - Zdeno Chara KILLS Max Pacioretty into the stanchion (HD) Concussion and fratured vertebrae. Intent....given the history of these two players this season I'd side with yes. Like Price said after the game: Montreal goalie...
What a yawner - allstar game
Why even bother holding this game? Can't take a slapshot, no hitting..no one skates or shoots. What's the point? They should sprinkle some oldtimers into the game. Any ex NHL player under 75 years old can play at that pace. At least it would...

Let's do a draft pool for hockey this year, I always do one at home with some friends and I thought why not one here. We will do it on points with no re-draft. We can do it starting Monday next week until the season starts. If there is enough...

NOTE: Hawks will Win Cup Max 5 Games!
The Hawks are clearly the more talented team and have so much more to offer when it comes to defending their own end and they also have scoring talent on all their lines! they'll make Leighton look like an every day goaltender. Flyers got lucky by...

Habs vs Flyers - 2010 Eastern Conference Final
Thought I would start this thread for anyone who wanted to comment on this series. Game One in Philidelphia - the City of Brotherly Love. The talking heads on TSN have called for a Blackhawk vs Flyers final. It would be so sweet to see them...

Hats off to the Habs!
With only 29.7 seconds left in the game, the Canadiens almost had me believing they would tie the game. That is how well they played tonight. They never gave up. Their energy level just seemed to keep rising during the game. In the third period they...

Canada's team? It ain't the Leafs
Move over Jaffer and Guergis. Never mind the wedge issue of abortion ruining the governments initiative on maternal health in the Third World. Forget the guilty verdict and eight-year jail sentence handed down against Karlheinz Schreiber by a German...

Toronto Maple Leafs Get Tough
The NHL drafts are on and the coach is redefining the Toronto Maple Leafs by using the formula of the Montreal Canadians where their motto is Play Tough Play Well. The last time Toronto won the Stanley Cup was back in the 1960s and back then they...
How about them Oilers!
I see Oiler fans no longer fear Comrie-ism. Oilers fans warm up to Comrie
NHL Playoffs '09
This season seemed kinda wierd to me but I had a lot going on myself so I didn't pay attention as closely as I usually do to the regular season. Some things never seem to change: my beloved Isles struggled mightily; the Maple Leafs continued in futility...
Well, as most people who follow sports know, the debate over head injuries and concussions and the steps necessary to avoid them has escalated in the past couple years, with the rising number of diagnosed concussions. The topic was discussed at the NHL GM...
Why wait until October for NHL action, get your hockey fix at ReelSportsfan.com. Visit ReelSportsFan.com - Category page the site has great hockey videos and some never before seen footage.
So the day has come, and past. The first round of the draft was anything but surprising. JT, Headmen, and Duchene all went to the way they were scouted, 1 2 & 3. So all the built up melodrama, and trade talks that fell threw, what is everyones opinion on...

You know you're an azzhole when...
even Don Cherry says you have no business playing in the NHL. Sean Avery, mature sage that he is, got a couple of stupid penalties last night that left even his coach shaking his head. But what I hadn't seen, until the highlights, was that at one point,...

HNIC Intro is amazing
I love the clips of Bobby Orr going through the air and Mario Lemieux when he sucked everyone on the North Stars out of their jock straps. This type of video work is incredible. YouTube - Hockey Night in Canada HNIC - New Theme / Intro

The Phoenix Coyotes or Balsillie vs the NHL
OK by now I think we've all seen this in the news. It seems every year, Jim Balsillie makes news at this time of year by trying to get involved with a troubled NHL team and bring them to Windsor, London or Hamilton. He's gone through it with Pittsburgh,...

IIHF World Hockey Championships
Canada plays Hungary at 1:30 Pacific Time. Should be a fairly easy game for Canada, but we'll see. Game will be on TSN.

Sundin at Air Canada on HNIC
Should be an interesting night in Toronto. The Canucks have been hot but are due for a loss one of these times. Maybe the leafs kick Sundin and the Vancouver. Or maybe the Canucks continue to roll and smoke the Leafs. Should be interesting to watch.

Any poolies here? Any interesting ways to set up pools? I like draft pools best and I like to keep them simple. 2 points for a goal, 1 for an assist and the bottom player or two don't count. With a pool like this, the cream will generally rise to...

Canuck Hockey Game at BC Place?
The recent Winter Classic in Chicago was a great success with 40,000 fans. I wonder if the Canucks would ever consider having a game at BC Place. With over 200 consecutive sellouts, the Canucks could likely sell out the 60,000 seats a few times a year. ...

Poor camera angles for goals in NHL
I'm watching hockey games and most of the time when a goal is scored, I don't see the whole net when the puck goes in. You see the shooter, the puck whiz by the goalie, but not the whole net to get a more complete view of the goal. They always block off...
Avery's sloppy seconds
Anyone following this saga? On camera, he was referring to his ex who is dating a Calgary Flame. Now he's suspended indefinitely for his comments. Any opinions on this?

The Sedin twins in Vancouver, what do you think?
I think the Sedin twins, Hendrik and Daniel are good hockey players but not great. They want to double their salaries to $7 million a year each. Yet the Canucks have won no playoff rounds in five years, the twins do not score big goals, they are not...
