Random Hockey Observations

Recommended Posts

Ryan Whitney talked about it in one of the early episodes (5 or 6) of Chiclets I just listened to this weekend. He basically said it was BS but said if a guy is REALLY high or low, there is something to it. Meaning, there's a a certain +/- (no pun intended) BS factor to it.

 

His example was one of his years in the AHL at WBS he was a -12 and was on for like 15 empty net goals against.

If your last name is Bertuzzi and you play in the NHL you're a garbage human being.

Speared because they wouldn't let the stick go.

 

no doubt, but still speared.

 

I would have probably given 1 game suspension for the punches but hardly like the shit his Uncle did

Automatic 5 games for leaving the bench but only 2 for a bare fisted uppercut on a defenseless player. This should literally never happen in hockey. They got it wrong on this one. I think it’s more about not wanting to create a precedent than to dole out the proper punishment. Player safely my ass.

Just for proper perspective...

 

GWC is an Avs fan and Bob is a Bertuzzi owner..

 

Both are right..

The two things are not the same. I didnt see the Bertuzzi incident, but the league allows for more leeway when it comes to players engaging/protecting themself. It does not want players coming off the bench which leads to more players coming off the bench which leads to an all out brawl... something the league does not like.

Seattle coming in to the west is exciting...Personally more west coast teams I like as well.

 

Interesting to see what happens with the expansion draft..Still have over 2 years for that, and it will happen after the CBA is renewed and hopefully no lockout.

florida has already offered their first round draft picks and Ekblad to Seattle in exchange for a Starbucks latte.

Basis of a tweet I saw last night...

 

The Pens beat the Islanders last night 2-1 in a shootout.

Sooooo...The Pens win the season series by going 2-1-1.

Aaaand...The Islanders win the season series by going 2-1-1.

I hope Steph Curry is trolling us, or else I lost all respect for him. Is he that dumb?

Believing the moon landing was fake is less outlandish than not believing in Climate Change or believing Vaccinations cause autism IMO. I guarantee there are a whole bunch of pro athletes that fall into the latter categories.

I just saw that Keith and Seabrook will both be playing their 1000th game tonight. First teammate Dmen to ever do it in the same game.

Before getting excited about the performances in the juniors , here is something that I found today.

 

2006 the Canadians win the gold medal led by Justin Pogge who started every game. His backup was none other than Devan Dubnyk. Dubnyk is a number one goalie in the league and Pogge, well we all know about him.
