In Topic: Why are players like this allowed to play in the NHL?

I'd be shocked if he got more than 3 games.

Welcome to the NHL where the fines don't mean anything and the suspensions are made up.

 

We say that line at least once a week down here in training. I laugh every freaking time.

The World Baseball Classic has several issues, the largest of which is simply that baseball does not have a history of being played internationally.  There are no baseball rivalries to me - there probably are to people of other nationalities.  In addition, there are all sorts of rules about pitcher usage.

 

The Canada/World Cup has resulted in moments in hockey history that are still noted today - I still hear about Mike Richter at the 96 World Cup or Mario Lemieux at the 87 Canada Cup.  You can't be more wrong about this.  But hey, Olympic hockey right guys?  

 

Exactly. I've got to events in both WBC and WCoH. As I previously stated, I might not be able to recall the date specifically, but I knew who played and the year for the World Cup. For baseball, I went to a USA Venezuela [or Possibly Columbia] game at SkyDome. I know the Americans won, but have no idea the score or hell even what year it was.

 

Hockey's reach can only be improved with another World Cup. Its easier to get behind and for people to become passionate about. Baseball, to me, is more of a social gathering than a sporting event.

Did you watch the World Cup of Hockey games from the 90s?? I totally disagree there.....players play HARD when they're sent out there....especially when they're doing it for country (and endorsements :P )

 

I STILL remember seeing the US trounce the Czechs at MSG in 96, I think the score was like 7-3

 

EDIT: Sorry, it was the Slovaks and it was 9-3.

If any piece of sh!t in this league deserves to be banned from hockey, its that toothless mouth breathing idiot.
