Yeah it’s really hard to give this guy much of the benefit of the doubt because what he did just flat-out sucked, but what can he really do or say that could repair his public image?  I gotta admit it…I don’t really have an answer for that.  The fact that he could even do what he did at all makes we wonder how much inherent “goodness” there really is to work with.

I don't think there's really anything he CAN do. Some people will inevitably make the "he's a dumb young guy who made a mistake" excuse but when I was a dumb young guy, my mistakes were smoking weed behind apartments and hiding from the cops when the landlord busted us, or puking in somebodys kitchen sink during a house party. What he did isn't normal behavior. If I was in his shoes I would have quietly bought a new wheelchair that was even better than the one I callously destroyed and then I'd never show my face in public again.

7 is such an odd number, just go to 10 mins

That would be even better. It does seem to be working pretty well in the ECHL though. It feels like a lot more games are ending in OT now.

Isles with a 6-3 win over the hapless Ducks last night.  Gotta admit, they’ve done a pretty good job pulling their season out of the abyss…they’ve gone a solid 12-5-3 over their last 20.  The teams trailing them in the WC race are really going to have to step up to have any shot to catch them, as long as the Isles don’t lose a bunch of games down the stretch.

They’re probably stuck facing the Bruins…don’t think they’ll be able to overtake the Pens (same number of points but the Pens have three games in hand).  Can’t see the Isles winning that series (or beating Carolina) but at least they should get in.

I watched the Toronto vs Colorado OT last night.   With the talent those two teams can put on the ice I expected it to be insanely exciting.   It’s only a 5 minute sample and it was entertaining but neither team looked anywhere close to the Devils in 3 on 3.  Obviously that doesn’t do us any good when playoffs start but for pure skill and entertainment, not sure anyone even comes close to NJ in OT.   
 

…also, it was after I fell asleep but it appears Binnington had another meltdown last night.  He like a poor man’s Hextall…except he did win a cup which no one can take away from him.

Fleury skated down the ice to slap the taste out of Binnington's mouth but the refs stopped the fight.  What a joke.

They need to stop preventing Binnington from getting tuned up. He wants to be a clown and sucker people, thats fine, then let him own up to it and answer the long-awaited bell.

Exactly, he's going to continue to be an a$$hole until someone knocks his teeth out.

Binnington's a douche but he didn't lose it because he gave up a goal...he lost it because after allowing the go-ahead goal, he got bumped in the crease.

That being said, dude, you've put up an .896 save% and own a GSAA of -27.2 since the start of last season.  You've got bigger fish to fry than losing your sh!t yet again, regardless of the reason.

I think Binner would've probably beat the piss out of MAF so it's probably good they didn't let them go.

That said, I hope Binner eventually does get to go with a tougher opponent who knocks his teeth out.  Dude is way too cocky.

Sounds like she's a pretty amazing person with a huge heart.

And according to other tweets Sydney made, this guy actually apologized to her face-to-face (because he was forced to by security), and then basically said "OK I apologized, so can I stay?"  What a D!CK!!!  

Her wheelchair is damaged but thankfully NOT broken.

Adelman only owns 10% so maybe he's looking for his own team now... 

 

Pretty sure right after this picture was taken, Forsberg was put on injured reserve with both an upper body AND a lower body injury.

I honestly forgot he played with the Flyers, looked it up, it was 2 seasons, 100 games and then traded to Nashville

Even better angle... 

 

1) 100% icing.

2) Goalie had it covered long enough for play to be whistled.

3) The linesman should be suspended indefinitely like that College Baseball ump with the atrocious strikeout sequence cause he just wanted to go home last week.
