right yeah I guess I didn't make it clear that I agree with this... I'm fine with the Olympics and enjoy them. Zman brought up how the tournament format is not an accurate test of the best countries, and I just responded that that's not what the Olympics try to measure.

Really in all honestly the European soccer leagues have the fairest format for determining "the best" - even schedule and best record wins, no tournament, no playoffs. But I'll take the entertainment and excitement of the Stanley cup playoffs anyday over such a format.

 

I was piggybacking on to what you were saying...I agreed with it and expanded on it.  Your post was completely clear.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Did Elias miss the last two games because of food poisoning?  If yes, there is something really wrong with him. He has had food poisoning problems at least 4 times in the past two years.

 

I am 80 years old and have had it once when I was 17 and I eat out a lot.

Hepatitis severely weakens the immune system- Patty has been much more susceptible to illness since he contracted that hepatitis a few years ago.

MB, KoolKoreanKid, whatever, I'm done with this...you know what you're doing (and I'm sure you'll continue to do it) and lame sayings like "I already am a great poster" and "I post what I mean and I mean what I post" don't change that fact.  That's all there really is to say about it. 


Stop saying this crap. Do you not like it when people constantly put words in your mouth? Do you not like it when people accuse you of things you don't do. Or better yet, do you not like it when other people accuse you of said things, and don't give you a chance to at least defend yourself?

Man Elias must just hate being in Russia.  

 

Also, holy upset batman.  This could be hilarious.


Holy crap, two great saves by Bob.  I haven't seen the first two periods - were the first three goals on him?

Wow, how do you start Varly over Bob.  Makes no sense.

 

And THERE IT IS!  HAHAHA sorry Kovy.

 

I'm actually kinda bummed to see Russia go this early..they're a potentially exciting team.

 

Oh and also, how bad is Ovie when it really matters..did he do anything after the first game this entire tournament?  Yikes.

I couldn't watch the game as I am at work but I read about it on Twitter.  Apparently there is a lot of questions about Russia's coaching during the game, especially the final few minutes.

 

That and a lot of writers are saying that Bob should have started the game from the beginning as he has clearly been the better goalie up until that point.
