We'll have to agree to disagree on Sopel. I thought he was a good, solid defenceman who didn't make a lot of mistakes. We had better hope Luongo is on his game because we don't exactly have a lot of scoring power. I had hoped they might pick up one or two of the free agents that were available.
I'm glad he's playing, as he has a bunch of kids to feed so I'm sure the 1 and a half mill. he will get this year will
help them scrape by.
If only the NHL would or could. High school hockey or college hockey is much more entertaining.
I like OHL. First time I really got into hockey and cheered my fool head off in years was at the Sudbury Arena howling for the Wolves. They missed out on the title by one game - in of all places, Plymouth Michigan!
Glad to see some discussion of NHL. While we're at it, can someone explain why there is virtually no talk of lacrosse (Canada's # 1 Summer sport) during the season on CC?
I don't know where this myth started about Lacrosse but I'll bet there are a lot of people in Canada who have never seen a lacrosse game....or maybe seen one or two.
Hockey ... part of our heritage. I have a friend who calls from the Mackenzie River Ice Highway just so he can listen to the Leafs on his cell phone. All he gets on the truck radio are Edmonton, Calgary or Vancouver ... but Toronto will be playing on satellite TV at base.
Company called him out on the carpet about the cell bill.
"What's cheaper..." he says to the boss "...the Leafs game - or the truck?"
This inspiring video deals with lacrosse up in Northern Canada:
I believe this is the GREATEST video I have ever seen.
