Not sure what they were reviewing. It was clearly a goal
Probably just making sure it wasn't a skate that kicked it in.

We need a nice big hockey trade to discuss..This is typically the time we get one ahead of the trade deadline.

That women's gold Medal game was a heck of a game. USA definitely has the better team though.

I made a few in-play bets on the game to spice things up.

bet $20 on Canada +120 at 0-0
bet $10 on Canada +260 at 0-1
bet $10 on USA +450 at 1-2 early in the third. (this just locked up a guaranteed profit, plus I thought the odds were too high given game flow. It actually got as high as +700 before USA tied it, I considered betting again, but I didn't want to be more leveraged on a USA victory than a Canada victory)

ended up in for $40, out for $55. Would have been out for $80 if Canada won

which site?
the +450 and +700 seem crazy high, esp +450 early in the 3rd.

I don't remember exactly when it was in the game, but I just checked the log and I made the bet at 10:59 PM (12:59 AM EST). I want to say it was 5 minutes into the third. I checked later a few minutes before USA tied it up and it was +690 I believe.

I always wondered this..What is the live betting odds based on? Is it just a statistical game situation? For example this team is -150 to win the game, they are down by 2 goals at 3 min left , hence the number now is xxx???

Those of us that watched that game could see clearly the Americans were outplaying them near the end of the game. Especially in Overtime...Does some sit there and make the line, or is it a mathematical computer generated oddsmaker?

probably a statistical model. based on historical events, there is x% chance that USA scores in the last x minutes of this game, and if they score, they still lose Y% of the time, so the line is +Z

Apparently the first ever trade between the two teams.

Which is fine, because the whole premise is the rivalry of proximity.

Love to hear what John thinks. My ranger friends are losing their mind. Itís like if the Leafs traded their leading scorer to the Habs. I would lose it too

Thats dumb.

You make the best deal you can for your team.

And if Ranger friends/your friends actually give it some actual thought and proper analysis, they would realize that the best thing they can do when they get a 2nd rounder is to get it from their rivals who they are directly competing against, so they can weaken them in the future when the Rangers are better. Who do they want to be weaker once their rebuild is done, the Devils or the Dallas Stars?

its short sighted and frankly, what i hate about fans who care as much about who they hate as much as who they root for.
