  2. Olympic Hockey

    So happy for the women who were on the team in 2014 to get some redemption!

    USA! USA! USA!

    USA wins. Let's be real, international play should ALWAYS go to OT in the medal rounds. Congrats to the US.

    Watching the OT was awful. At least 50% of the passes were off target on both sides, PK positioning was horrible. Going to a SO now.

    Evander Kane perhaps? Out of contract this summer. Always had the talent, but its the attitude problems that scare me with this guy.

    Heading to OT, I want the USA women to win and I've been rooting hard for them and watching all the games but this whole tournament has been some really, really bad hockey.

    yup lol i obviously had that argument countless times with Habs fans around here lol i mean... the setup back then is exactly like if... Pittsburgh had no cap to deal with... and every year they could just offer a contract to any young prospect they want... McDavid... Matthews... Hischier... etc etc lol

    Comparing a group of NHL has-beens losing to a scrub Czech team to a group of college kids beating a grown-men well oiled machine team of hockey superstars (who had just beaten the NHL All-Stars in a competition the year prior) is fvcking enormous. That difference is ridiculous even for SD.

    Exactly- there's a reason Montreal has 24 Cups.... They had territorial rights to every player from Quebec and there were six teams until 1967. Not hard to win with that setup lol. It also makes it even more hilarious that the Rangers have managed to win one (ONE!!!! [emoji23][emoji23]) Cup in 78 years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I still get what you're saying. Cause to me winning the Stanley Cup now... is a way bigger achievement than winning it in the 50s for example. Back then you had like 6 teams with players from the US and Canada... split in 2 different leagues really, no cap... and no draft so. It's not like now where the NHL has 30+ teams, parity and has all the best players from all over the worlds

    Yeah pretty much.... Just much different circumstances with regards to how the Olympics worked back then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Olympic Hockey

    ah well i agree with you on that angle of course. But we can't deny that winning it back then or now... when it comes to... what it required and what level of play it was.... it's the same thing. That's what i meant.
  15. Olympic Hockey

    Different time in the world back in the day. Pros never competed in the Olympics, save the Russians who, as we know, were pros without the official designation. Now that we've actually had NHL players going to the Olympics for 16 years before this one, I think it's safe to say that we've become used to Olympic hockey being on another level, truly best-on-best. Therefore, when you take a step back and basically have mostly dudes who can't hack it in the NHL anymore if they ever could to begin with, it becomes a glorified beer league tournament. I know you're going to disagree, but you asked for my reasoning, and that's how I look at it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So... let me get this straight and recap the last 2 comments haha... When the Americans lose in a glorified beer league tournament... it's kind of downplayed and there's no need to be upset about it... But when they win a glorified beer league tournament... there's a movie made about it and it's still talked about decades later. I mean... i truly don't mind either angles but i feel in general you gotta pick one? haha also i do agree it was a great read, thanks for posting

    He seemed very candid and didn’t hesitate much. I’m about as reliable as Ecklund. Give or take.
  19. GDT: Columbus @ Devils 7:00 PM

    He told @Martyisth3b3st that before the game in Tampa.
  20. GDT: Columbus @ Devils 7:00 PM

    I read or heard somewhere Hynes mentioning MoJo being back in time for the playoffs and remember being surprised he made it sound so "matter of fact"... I have no idea where or when I heard/read it so sorry about that. Anyone want to see the cowbells in action? Gave me a good chuckle... Ian Pulz Retweeted

    FWIW: Tom Gulitti‏ Verified account @TomGulittiNHL Chayka reiterated on media conference call that he's not listening to trade offers for OEL. Only talks he's interested in with OEL are with his agent about a possible contract extension.

    There were no fewer than 3 Devils fans on my flight in from Dallas this morning. Just a guess but the other two rocking NJD gear we’re probably coming in for Saturday as well

    No sh!t? Really??!
  26. All purpose general trade speculation thread

    That sounds like what they are looking for. But I’m not looking to spend that much on what could be a rental player. Take out one of the 1sts and guarantee EK signs here long term, that I might be interested in.
