I wonder how St. Louis really feels about Yzerman leaving him off the Canadian squad. His own GM ... damn.

 

He's fvcking pissed. Being left off the 2010 and 2014 teams is a pretty strange thing when you have been as damn good as Marty. But, at least Yzerman was consistent. If you are going to pass on him in 2010, how can you put him on your team 4 years later when he is 38? 

 

It's a nice change of pace at least. Usually you have GMs and coaches fighting for their own guys. Yzerman put that all aside. Their relationship might be done, but it doesn't hurt the Lighting. You get a veteran player extra rest, and playing with a giant chip on his shoulder.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

I imagine I would be pissed too.

Can't believe Giroux was left off, I think he's one of the best in the league..surprising to say the least.

 

And yeah, Nash over MSL is a joke.  Different types of players, but still..

 

The US squad is going to get SQUASHED.  Good thing they have two dedicated checking lines to match with Canada's..Oh wait, Canada has four scoring lines.

All these jerseys were fvck ugly, awful, an abomination. Sweden's were fine as always, never been my favorite, but it works and it's got history. Swiss probably have the best of the bunch otherwise though. The fake laces make me want to puke.

Dick's had replicas of the US jersey for about $100-130 blank.

I'm sorry but I've lost all respect for you with this post.

There is nothing likeable about those jerseys. Nothing. They are so bad that I refuse to allow you to have any other opinion, because my opinion is not actually an opinion it is a fact.

Those jerseys are terrible, and if you think otherwise you are a terrible human being.

They are not the worst jerseys I have ever seen, but they are not pretty by any standard.  I might get one just to say I have one after the Olympics when they are $30 in the bargain bin.

lol yeah. I was gonna say if they moved the decimal over on that $100-130, it might be worth pondering.

well of course I exaggerate for effect but I don't understand how any sane person could say they "like" the jersey.

I want Quebec to secede to see their team compete in the Olympics. That would be such an awesome new element to the games. And every international hockey competition.
