Isn't the challenge to take the ice weathervane if you don't do it, you have to donate to ALS? Maybe they wrote a check...


Donating money is really the better thing to do anyways. I'd bet a lot of these guys donated along with doing the challenge though. It looks pretty self indulgent if you're a pro athlete making millions and all you do to help the cause is dump some cold water on your head lol.

Someone needs to do crank the challenge up a notch by putting a bunch of ice melt salt like calcium chloride into a bucket of ice water then do this lol. You could get the water to below freezing temp that way. Otherwise no one is really dumping water on themselves that's any colder than anyone else has.

The one thing I would try out if you have an apple device is to subscribe to NHL game center and drop $100 on Apple TV. You can connect to your tV in HD wirelessly, although you should check if it's supported by AirPlay

Edit: actually it's it's own app on apple tv so you don't even need another apple device

You could just hook your PC up to your TV as the monitor, but then the audio will still be playing through your PC. I know some Android phones allow their micro USB port to be used as an video/audio output via an HDMI adapter so then you could just hook your phone straight to your TV with a cable. I know the PS3 had a GameCenter app so I imagine the PS4 has one too and maybe the Xbox does as well, which would be another option for watching GameCenter on your TV.

exactly, he has gone down hill and in a hurry.. i dont care if he is a "team guy" or not we already have enough dead weight on this team that doesnt produce enough on the score board. i wouldnt mind cutting ties with him at all especially since they decided to grab rutuu now also..no need for zubss anymore time to send him off to the glue factory.

He hasn't fallen off that far. He's not very good and is definitely overpaid at this point, but it's not like he's atrocious or hurts the team when he's out there. If we were right up against the cap, it'd be a different story. I feel like Ruutu was acquired for that role in particular with the knowledge that Zubrus wasn't good enough to play in the top 6 anymore as he used to be.

The biggest thing this affects is something like Center Ice and especially GameCenter.  It'd be insane to put any regional sports networks on existing cable tiers out of market unless they charged practically nothing for it, and why would they do that?   But for people who want to stop getting cable because it's an absurdly priced monopoly and would only get GameCenter, it's huge.  Out of market stuff is really immaterial imo.

If I could watch Devils games on GameCenter, I'd have no reason to pay for cable. Live sports is the only reason I need cable at all. Everything else I like to watch I can easily get for free on the internet.
