Think of how many humans in history died without having their words written or pictures taken of them. At least we have that, and in that way, we're immortal. 

Immortality through film and video especially.  People 1000 years from now will be able to dial up actual video of life from another millennium, as long as archives are continually updated.  Imagine if we could do the same?  As far as images go, it's pretty much paintings for "long ago" times.

That’s so sad about Bossy. He gets forgotten in the greatest goal scorer ever conversation since he had such a short career, but if he played another 10 years healthy, Ovechkin might be chasing him right now. 

Yeah it ended for Bossy so quick.  Kinda like the Sandy Koufax of hockey, expect that Bossy was awesome right out of the gate.

Quite a success story Gary has out there in the desert. :lol:

*the Flames game ended up 9-1

Outscored 71-24 in their last 15 games.  That’s just a whole other level of rotten.

I’m honestly surprised we beat them

Devils have a bad record but really aren’t THAT bad…the goalie situation is a killer.  Teams like the Flyers and the Yotes are just dreadful.

I think this might be wishful thinking/fan stuff going on. We ARE that bad. Like 4th or 5th worst record in team history bad. Maybe the goalie situation is the reason we’re so bad, but we are BAD, no doubt about it.

Didn’t say that the Devils are good…just not as bad as those teams are.  If Devils had league average or slightly above goaltending, their record isn’t as dreadful.  Of course they have to actually find goalies who can do that.  And get a coach who can help the D help their goalies.

Agreed. This Devils squad is honestly the “best” bad team I’ve ever watched. So much of it is goaltending, and a dreadful power play.

No I know but it’s kindve our thing to lose when all indications would point to a win.

Hasn’t this been going on for years? Wasn’t the last time you could actually buy true authentics the Reeboks? 

I love it. Hopefully this puts an end to the Made In Canada on ice jerseys not being available to purchase.
