2021 Around The League Thread

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.  

But it did. Once you used it a while, the layers of tape would get fused together and it was super smooth on the top and bottom. Only issue was playing in the summer, when a hard slap shot might make it less round because it was so soft from the heat. i also lodged one in a goalie's mask once.

I don’t want a guy who pulled the sh!t PLD did the other night anyway. fvck that noise. I don’t need anything like that near my impressionable young core.

I hated that they gave the Conn Smythe to Giguere. Always have. He was great, but so was Marty. And that ended up being the one thing missing from his trophy case when all was said and done. If you pu

Vorachek called out an HF poster..

Just copying and pasting my post from HF about this... 

I think there's a big difference of reading the regular beat reporters articles since he actually deals with them on a normal basis(as well as face to face in the past) and people who actively tag him on social media but coming on HF or other message boards is the equivalent of vanity searching.

Maybe it motivates him to play better but it's definitely interesting lol

I think this is a place where we come to actively vent our frustrations out about our teams to one another but the vast majority of us wouldn't be on social media directly tagging people with those frustrations since that is just directly insulting them. Just because most of us vent about a certain player or few here doesn't mean we aren't rooting for them to succeed.

If Voracek wants to meet that guy face to face, Zacha probably wants to kill my whole family.

Has there ever been a person who has held only two NHL head coaching jobs and got both of his GMs fired for not terminating him once it became clear he was incompetent?   
 

if Poile doesn’t make a move soon, it seems like that man could be John Hynes.  Is there any team underachieving more than the Preds?

In history? Yes, the Ducks. 

Not those Ducks, the ones from the movie. Clearly District 5 had some excellent talent. All they did was get a new coach, add Adam Banks and pick up a couple undrafted free agents and there you go, instant champions. They were definitely underachieving.

Anything to stay relevant.

I forced myself to listen through his interview(s) with the Spittin Chiclets guys and... just a classic narcissist.  I'd almost feel bad for the guy if he wasn't just such a colossal fvcking a$$hole.  

Also his stupid face popping up in Tenet almost ruined the movie for me.

I think Vorachek is actually a lunatic, though.  Like I think he's way more intense off the ice than most people think he is.

I wouldn't fvck with him lol

Geoff Tate of Queensryche actually changed his first name to Geoff from...Jeff (he was born Jeffrey Wayne Tate).  Go figure.

He definitely belongs on some kind of pills, but not those ones.

Interestingggg, I'm really happy to see that.  

We'll see if they protest and get an exception.
