  1. Oates and Stevens both coaching. Lou overlord. Barr Out.

    Let's not forget player-coach Reg Dunlop of the Charlestown Chiefs. Fan: "You guys gotta stop losing. Get the power play together." Reg: "Yeah, we're working on it."
  2. Zach Parise 'ran the show' + 30 Thoughts

    Had a connecting flight thru Minneapolis and they have parise and Suter T-shirts prominently displayed at the entrance to a store in the concourse. Did a double take and felt a little sad. I don't hold anything against him, but it did take me aback a bit for a second. Later two guys I was sitting next to at the bar were discussing Suter and parise. minny fans are very excited to have him. The parise shirt was number 11, not 9.

    Time to let Marty play wing.

    Slasher, they don't have to fly Tony Robbins in, he was at game 3 and probably wouldn't, since he's a kings fan and was hired by McNall in 93 to psych up the kings, for reals...
  7. GDT SCF GAME 3: NJ DEVILS vs LA KINGS

    That whistle was way too quick. The Devils should have been given at least 5 or 6 more whacks at it
  8. GDT SCF GAME 3: NJ DEVILS vs LA KINGS

    Regardless of what anyone says about the refs, if the Devils can't score on 7 powerplays, they don't deserve to win. That said, it's not over yet.
  9. GDT SCF GAME 3: NJ DEVILS vs LA KINGS

    Can we please score a powerplay goal? That was the make up call right there.
  10. GDT SCF GAME 3: NJ DEVILS vs LA KINGS

    The puck was under his pad, there was no way the ref could see it. They basically pushed Marty into the net to spring the puck loose. I don't believe in any conspiracy theories, but that was one sh!tty piece of refereeing right there.
  11. Me & Gordie

    The Wayner quotes Gordie in the intermission, "You can't score if you don't shoot." Josefson, are you listening?
  12. In Hockey Enforcer's Descent, A Flood Of Prescription Drugs

    It's not tough to understand for us Canadians For anyone interested in the darker side of the dream, and a story of what happens when you give it up/throw it away, this movie is fantastic: The Rhino Brothers

    Doesn't Mark Howe work for the Red Wings as a scout? When I got a tour of the Rock and we were up in the rafters where the press and scouts sit, he was on the list as part of the Red Wings org. Back in 1995 I watched the Devils win the Stanley Cup against the Wings in Parry Sound, the birthplace of Bobby Orr which is proudly proclaimed on every sign you see driving into the city. When I was living in Toronto, I used to watch a lot of old hockey on Leafs TV, because they replay whole games from when they were winning Cups in the 60s. They beat the Wings in Detroit to win a Cup, and during the post-game celebrations on the ice which involved a person with a microphone interviewing Leafs players over the PA system, Gordie skated out and offered sincere and humble congratulations to the Leafs. One of the classiest things I've seen in sports. Which is funny, because Gordie was one of the dirtiest SOBs to ever lace up skates. Whenever I saw him on the ice, he always reminded me of Mark Messier. Both were prototypical power forwards with a mix of tremendous skill with an equal helping of nastiness. Long before he was known as Mr. Hockey, he was known amongst the players as Mr. Elbows. Moose wasn't as dominant as Gordie, but they sure played a lot alike, even though it was Gretzky who idolized Howe. Heard a funny story about how there was a pact amongst players from Saskatchewan that they never went after each other, regardless of which team you were playing for. Saskatchewan was so dirt poor that they wouldn't risk each others' livelihoods. I can't remember which player it was, but a rookie fellow Saskatchewanian followed him into the corner and took a butt end to the mouth, which knocked out a bunch of teeth. Gordie then realised who it was, and the next time they were on the ice together, he offered a sincere apology with a promise it would never happen again, and ended it with "That's all your getting though, and don't be looking for revenge, cuz then I'll forget you're from Saskatchewan." You are fortunate to have the opportunity to interact with a true legend. Despite a life-long hatred of the Leafs, I always watched the 60s games, because I went to Eddie Shack's hockey school, and Ron Ellis ran the practices for my house league team when I was 10. I know how those kids felt seeing the Stanley Cup ring. Seeing Ellis' ring, and hearing the stories of what it was like playing in Russia in the Summit Series, was truly magical. Anyhow, I won't bore you with any more of my reminiscences, I'm just trying to distract myself so I don't go insane with anxiety about the game in an hour or so... ;-)

    Awesome! So what did he have to say about hockey stuff? Did you ask him about his opinion on the Finals, the Devils, general state of the game, anything?
  15. Matteau defends his goalie

    He did win an Olympic gold medal in net for Sweden, which is a major accomplishment even if he never wins a Cup. I rate best on best tournament wins almost as high as Cups. Marty, of course, has two best on best wins, and backed up a third. That's the only blemish on Roy's career in my books. He never won a best on best. Nobody blames him for what happened in 98 (see Crawford, Mark), but he wasn't better than Hasek when it counted for Canada.
