  1. IOC bans Russia

    I'm with the Commish on this one. Some of these guys were once solid NHL players. Wolski in Colorado, for example.
  2. IOC bans Russia

    CBC had this potential lineup in November. http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/wharnsby/canada-olympic-hockey-roster-predictions-1.4379792 Definitely a good number of KHL guys on there (Scrivens, Despres, Lee, Brule, Kozun, and more).
  3. IOC bans Russia

    Could they in fact form a team? My understanding is that clean Russian athletes can only compete as "neutrals" under the IOC flag. Would this be a team of neutrals?
  4. Empty seats in Hockeytown

    Yeah. Last time I was at a Habs game, I was in the section with free food. People who know me IRL know that's a big f*ing deal for me. But you better believe that even in those circumstances, I gave up on my third round of hot dogs when I saw that the puck had dropped and the intermission was over... That concourse does look cool, though. Anyway, I think Salros hit the nail on the head. Sports in general are just not affordable. And you'd think the NHL would capitalize on this by undercutting the other North American leagues... but of course, that assumes that the people managing the league are competent.
  5. Draft advice

    Ha ha yeah. That one hurts. The worst part is that I own him in the PCFL, so I get daily reminders of his success... As for Veg's draft, Zucker has interesting potential - lots of success despite being the odd man out on the depth chart. It will be interesting to see what he does now that Coyle is back.
  6. Draft advice

    Personally I'd rather have Ziba than Brown at 3. As for drops, I would also choose Turris. That guy sucks
  7. Lets fix Montreal Canadiens Thread

    Well said, yes, but the fact remains that Therrien messed with this kid from day one, and now the damage is done. Inconsistent opportunity, a persistent desire to reward non-talented "sandpaper" guys (see Weise, Dale and De La Rose, Jacob), and the refusal to give the kid a real chance at C have messed with his head. Only a fresh start in a new city can save Chucky's game at this point. The mismanagement (and disdain, yes, disdain) of high-level talent has been chronic under Bergevin. I think it comes down to jealousy and resentment - he wishes he could have had half the talent of Markov, Radu, or Chucky. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyQswGcQiN0

    Wow, Veg, I'm amazed that you still have faith in Bergevin. As I see it, there is no plan.
  9. Lets fix Montreal Canadiens Thread

    I don't know but I can tell you this - I saw him play two games for Russia at the 2016 Worlds, and in both games, he was the best player on a team that included Ovie, Kuznetsov, Datsyuk, Panarin, Dadonov, and Mozyakin.
  10. Lets fix Montreal Canadiens Thread

    Sigh..... never mind. This is like having a broken arm but having 'no interest' in a cast... why can't we ever have nice things?!?!?
  11. Lets fix Montreal Canadiens Thread

    I think the Habs need better production than that. Vadim Shypachyov's agent is Petr Svoboda. Isn't that interesting?
  12. Gord Downie

    Awesome. Hopefully, your students will get into the Hip - I like to think their music is timeless, but maybe that's because I'm old too...
  13. Gord Downie

    Forgot about that one. Great addition to the list!
  14. Gord Downie

    Don't tell me what the poets are doing, Zipper The Tragically Hip - Poets I wish my history and English teachers had sat us down to study Gord's lyrics. The man was indeed a brilliant poet - and freestyler - his famous live rants (as seen in the video above) were awesome.
  15. Gord Downie

    This post isn't strictly about hockey, but whatever. Canada lost a giant today. For the non-Canadians in the forum, Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip were like Canada's Bruce Springsteen, except that they weren't world-famous superstars, and they didn't really care... which makes them all the more emblematic of Canadian culture. I thought I'd post a few links to some of the Hip's most famous songs referencing the great Canadian game, for those non-Canadians who might not be familiar with Downie and his work. 50 Mission Cap, which is about Bill Barilko - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-t8W4X8Obo Fireworks, which references the Summit Series - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9wW9ENBPlQ Heaven is a Better Place Today, which was inspired by the Thrashers' stoicism after Dan Snyder's death - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvmAaYCk11E Enjoy.
