That's okay. He's still only got (checks notes) 4 more full fvcking seasons left on that contract. 

I loved that guy. I wept when he left. But damn, thanks for biting the bullet on that one minny.

He’ll be bought out. That’s a foregone conclusion.

Also never got past 62 points in a season in Minny. I thought he'd flirt with 90 again at least a couple of times.

Another big difference (that affected his point total) was as a Devil, he played in 81 or more games six seasons.  Never came close to that many with the Wild.  He became a bit more brittle with that team.

He was pretty good for them most of the time, but the Wild never advanced past the second round during his time there.  Pretty sure that wasn’t the vision when he was signed to his megadeal (along with Suter signing his megadeal).

I read about this today and I admit in the most petty way it made me happy.  I'm still bitter he left but man that contact is looking bad.  Thankfully our bad contract retired and went to Russia.  Better them than us.

Crossing checking someone (twice) downward on the wrist between the gloves and elbow pads is also fvcking dirty

i fvcking hate every single player on the Boston Bruins. Honestly, good for Ovie. Two unnecessary cross-checks to the wrists after the play is over? 

I’ve always been a supporter of “if they punch your arm, rip their fvcking throat out.” Maybe Bobby Ryan is still playing at a Hall Of Fame pace if he credit carded anyone who slashed his wrists away from the play.

I have no problem with what Ovi did. The dude asked for it, and he got what he asked for.

The concept is called “proportional response”, which I also support, unfortunately my proportion is like a million to one. 

Ovi’s response was definitely more severe than the initial cross checks, but keep your stick to yourself and you wouldn’t have to ice your balls.

The awkwardness of the guy having dropped his glove and then just having to turn and skate away is hysterical.

I love the green biscuit puck.. And who says you shouldn't take shots with them

I have no experience with those. When I was a kid the best puck for roller hockey was a roll of electrical tape.

When those came around a few years ago I didn't understand the hype and I still don't.  I didn't find them to be amazing for stick handling or passing...to me they just seemed kinda like a regular puck.  Also, if you actually use them for shooting (which I think you're not supposed to do), they come apart and break fairly easily.

I literally starting playing hockey the exact same way - a league on Long Island used rolls of electrical tape for pucks and to this day I still cannot believe that happened.  I have no idea how the puck slid or glided on the concrete/asphalt surface whatsoever.

They are strictly a stick handling tool. For asphalt. Id take my kid down to the tennis courts with his reebok (RIP) roller blades and have him stick handle and pass with me. The physics were that the puck was in 2 pieces so the vibration were mainly in the bottom half and the top mass was dampened keeping it more stable .. Imo it work real well. Not a game puck

Gotcha, that makes sense.  I didn't play around with them a lot or give them much of a chance, so that's probably why I didn't find them particularly useful.  I do remember a few guys would bring them into our locker room and just mess around with them which is where I first noticed them, so it probably wasn't the right setting.
