Oh my god. NHL decides to throw some Philadelphia Eagle between the benches with Pierre McGuire for the entire 1st period (and hopefully no more). Painful to listen to him and Edzo trying to explain hand passes and every other random rule to this guy.

Ugh. And they kept it going during the intermission to get his "expert" opinion on the game so far. It was tough to watch.

This isnt a troll post, or something to upset the masses ...however:

If the Penguins win the Stanley Cup, I will stop watching hockey for a full year.

This is a 100% true story.

Here's a fascinating twitter thread about obvious corruption in the KHL: http://thesportsdail...rrupt-shocking/

I posted that tweet in the AHL Slack. Pretty amazing.

Ah, sorry - I usually only check this thread and a few others. Yeah, we can claim how the NFL loves/hates certain teams, how the NBA reffing is rigged, or how the NHL's punishment system needs overhauling, but to see blatant abuse with no attempt to disguise it is pretty shocking.

I'm curious what his teammates think of Burakovsky's comments last night regarding the NYI.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

Potentially stupid question...

Teams on road trips who play LA and Anaheim back to back... they'd just stick to one hotel for the duration, right?

Not sure. But having made that trip quite a bit itís not as close as you would think. Itís 34 miles and technically about 35 min without traffic between the Honda center and Staples. . However in LA that could be easily a 90 minute bus ride.

This is so tragic. Hit close to home as well. Happened in Ajax close to where we lived and we know a lot of families in that Don Mills Flyers organization.
