Wayne Gretzky Parkway ...
This sign should be along the roadway
I went to an Indianapolis Ice hockey game where both goalies got thrown out.
Live hockey is great.
What is "Habs"?
short for "Les Habitants", in some damn foreign language
Champa Bay is keeping all of their trophies this year.
here is the idiot... it is sad to say that to the fans that love their team ... what a jerkov
That goal was a thing of beauty
I would concur but would make a slight adjustment to your proposal.
In the old days, say 120 or 130 years ago the games were played in un-heated arenas or barns as they were called.
Given the advances in technology I would offer this suggestion; construct smaller similarly unheated venues with ice surface condensers powered by solar panels.
I say smaller because every burg in Canada has at least one rink from which 53% of the hockey players in the NHL are hatched (there are 532 Canadians playing in the AHL not to mention the many hundreds in the junior leagues).
With my proposal, many more cities and towns in cooler climates (I'm thinking Canada and the Rust Belt in the USA) could support a pro team which would allow for full employment for the players, continued revenue streams for the leagues and many more happy fans able to afford attending games in person.
The carbon out-put from large arenas and air travel would be greatly reduced with innovative scheduling and inter divisional play (team buses would of course be EVs).
Also the arenas could double as cooling centres for seniors in the hot summer months that are sure to be the norm going forward.
I really didn’t mind his rant, it added some spice to a budding rivalry.
As for his comment re the Montreal fans, it just shows that he really doesn’t understand the passion for the team and hockey in general in Montreal and Canada. They were going nuts because the Habs hardly even made the playoffs never mind the finals.
He may be singing a different tune next season when the young guys on the Habs come into their own and are skating circles around the Bolts.
You're 100% correct and I apologize. I swear I've put myself into more "trouble" with the wife over texts I've sent that were innocent enough but she misread lol.......
Seeing NHL hockey being played live still can't be beat.
This coming from a guy who watched hockey as a kid in the old Chicago Stadium. Looking across the ice to the other side was like looking into a starry night with all the cigarettes being lit and puffed, and Bobby Hull was at the top of his game with his patented slap shot. The only guys wearing helmets were the goalies.
I don't care who wins, those Blackhawks will always be my team.
Now get off my lawn! Ha, ha.
Lol, moral of the story, never let your wife read your texts before they are vetted by a wise guru.
I think the whole press conference was classless...
First, if you're going to address the public, put a shirt on.
Second, never criticize the fans, yours or the opponent's, they pay your salary.
- FYI, in the 2019/2020 season MTL revenue was 87M$ and Tampa registered a loss of 8.3M$ so the MTL fans are actually paying for his salary.
Third, Showing disrespect to M-A Fleury by not being able to name him and even criticizing the choice of the Vezina was absolutely classless.
I used to love going to Preds games. I went to multiple, monthly. Even though I live a few hours away.
Then they made the finals and lost to the Penguins… and prices skyrocketed. Turned me from an almost diehard fan to “wgaf.”
Sad. It would cost me a small fortune to take the kids to a game now. Live hockey is so fun. On TV.. it just isn’t.
A live game is an experience for sure, however it's so much better on TV. I used to go to 3 or 4 games a season and get back to watch the same game on TV.
The game is so fast now, that you need instant replay to appreciate the quality of certain move, faints, saves, etc...
Especially if you were stuck behind a post at the old Forum
I have to agree with you, you make good points. There is a hockey culture that may not be appreciated by players from other places.
Two of the three most valuable teams in the NHL are Toronto and Montreal; New York Rangers ($1.65 billion), the Toronto Maple Leafs ($1.5 billion), the Montreal Canadiens ($1.34 billion)
He’s still kickin!
just outside playing a bunch!
