Call me crazy, but I'm not a fan of the top portion. The black logo? The 80's lightning?
The lightning has a pretty meaningful reason to be there. When Corey was a kid he was playing outside with his cousin and his cousin got hit by a lightning, so it's kind of an homage to him surviving almost getting hit by one and homage to his cousin
hopefully they'll push a little so that camp is open to public and sh!t like that... it's 2013 and Lou is way too old school and obnoxious about his vision of what is "distraction" to the players. It's bullsh!t really, Toews and Kane just won the cup and they've been doing a sh!t ton of off ice stuff and all those things that Lou forbid.
That's crazy. I really hope this guy gets a decent prison sentence. People need to realize some animals are not meant to be confined as pets. Between the harm to the animal, the consequences of irresponsible pet owners releasing them into the wild and in this particular case, the death of two kids, it's awful all around.
its obviously aweful but i dont agree. Those 2 boys we're having a sleepover with the dude's son, they went to his farm and had a great day and he really loved those kids. In the morning he found them dead, it was obviously the worst day of his life and a real life nightmare. I get what you're saying but what this guy will have to live with for the rest of his life is worst than jail. It was a freak accident, a kid can drown in a pool or get his face ripped off by a dog out of the blues. sh!t happen.
i know it might just be some "cultural difference of opinion" i dont know if us canadians are more forgiven but nature of what lol but its pretty well known and supported that americans are a lot more trigger happy on suing and punishing offenders. Not too sure which one is best but i still think that guy shouldnt go in jail, his life will be a nightmare until the day he die already
i dont feel like starting a debate about this, but they have to put a fvcking team in Quebec, it would balance the conference a little and theres people CRAVING hockey there and who's been craving for YEARS. I understand the business support side of it but i strongly believe that the "plug and play" fan established fan base from Canada can infuse enough revenue + pierre karl peladeau's plan.
Ridiculous to keep on putting teams where they have to create a fan base and where hockey is like the 5th sport. If you want to sell lots of bananas, make a stand where rich monkeys are.
Jesus the frustration of the offseason is really getting to people this year
I'll bet Jagr is signed by Wednesday, whether here or somewhere else.
to me its the past 3 offseasons, its been hell literally, never has a fan i remember been able to just relax and wait for hockey to start.
1- Zach's contract talks part 1 / arbitration
2- the NEVERENDING Kovy saga
3- The contract penalty
4- have to start a season and play a man short cause Lou handled the cap terribly and players had to play with that black cloud on top of their head knowing someone had to go.
5- Bankruptcy rumours looming
6- terrible (if not worst ever) start of the season + Zach's injury
7-missing the playoffs
The draft expectations and drafting Larsson we're good points i guess.
1- Bankruptcy rumours looming again
3- Zach's contract talks part 2 / him leaving
Cup run was of course fun, thank god.
1- Missing the playoffs again
2- Clarkson walking
3- Eternal financial trouble talks
4- Kovy fvcking retiring
of course im not saying everything of the past 3 years we're bad, but as fans we had to go through a fvcking crazy amount of sh!t compared to other teams. Seems like we're ALWAYS waiting for a situation to get resolve and until it's done we're just waiting and waiting and waiting all nervous hoping for the best, very annoying after awhile.
I'd just like to have all our team signed not having to worry about losing our top players, confident in the team for the upcoming season, confident about the team structure and financial stability. Its not that much to ask to me? lol
• 2 divisions of 7 teams in the West and 2 divisions of 8 teams in the East
• Top 3 teams in each division will make the playoffs so thats 12 teams
• The last 4 teams getting in will be the "wild-card teams". The 2 next teams with the most points in the conference will get in too.
• Matchups will be the winner of the division with the most points will play the wild-card team with the less points... etc etc.
• The teams finishing 2nd and 3rd in each division will play in the first round then the winners of each series will play for berths in the conference championship series
• so within your divison youre playing 5 games against 2 teams and 4 games against 5 teams.
so basically our division is Devils, Rangers, Islanders, Flyers, Washington, Columbus, Carolina and Pittsburgh. So we'll have to be in the top 3 on that conference or be the best wild-cards... Not gonna be easy but lets hope some teams sh!t the bed it could help.
edit: oh and yeah with the new schedule we're playing every teams in the league twice i believe. A home and home against all teams.
dude sounds legit, i'm sure details of devils negotiations leak out all the time
do you think we believe this 100% when we post those? who cares ? its just rumoured numbers that we can discuss about, if those discussions are not high enough on your superior standard, well stay out of it thats all. Lot of us here just like to talk and discuss about those rumours. Not harming anyone and its entertaining.
You're like that guy that you're watching action movies with and all movie long going "oh yeah, as if thats possible!"
