your first beer is on Canesfan imho, I can chip in 2 dollars canadian
My bottle of water was $6 so I don’t even want to know what the domestic beer price is in club level
Enjoy yourself man, this should be a lot of fun
Lol at Bo Horvat playing for the Pacific
Here with my dad and 6 y/o. Kid is having the best time.
The red lights aren’t on/working so the typical panthers in game presentation is on full display
Ken Holland is about to make so many bad decisions to bring in Karlsson
NHL needs to figure out a better product for this thing. They have a bunch of average players in this game while leaving stars at home. None of the players seem to be enjoying themselves.
You have to incentivize them in some way to give a shit. And that’s difficult when someone like Mike Richter tore his ACL at this event when it was a bit more serious.
It’s essentially the baseball episode of south park. Nobody wants to win and have to play a 2nd game.
Exactly zero teams wants to incentivize the all stars to play harder. I think the presentation could be boosted though. Kinda go with fake rules like those old mtv rock n jock games
or just replicate the 3on3 mode in NHL23
Omg the confetti.
We are entertained
3 songs. Lame.
All star games are a dumb, outdated concept not just limited to the NHL.
I used to like the hardest shot competition. Surprised they did away with that.
It’s cool to see top guys playing together for like 5 minutes then they’re all just boring. It’s not like 25+ years ago where guys felt there was a big competition between conferences.
I guess I should have tuned in for more than the 1st ten minutes. Then again…
They made more sense when there was no way to see the stars across the league on a regular basis but these days you can watch any game wherever you are.
They’re just not interesting.
Being a goalie in the ASG has to feel like a punishment
I think it just needs to be said what the goal of the all star game is. And I don’t know what they consider it to be. What what I can tell you is my kid had THE BEST time at the game. He loved that he knew so many of the players. He loved seeing all the league mascots. And he loved seeing a couple of his favorite players win (RIP panthers/flames trade debate).
so for a live event that’s a unique showcase of the sport, it excels. As a tv “sporting event” I could see it being boring. But it’s a way to treat sponsors and I think it still easily works as a live event. There’s enough rooting interest for the home players. It’s fun.
I do wish they (and the nba and mlb) would screw with the rules some though. Throw a money puck in there. Give the goalies a chance to do something fun. Go with nba Jam style 10 point spots. Remove the blue lines. Whatever. Just have fun.
skills challenge is a bit of another story. They just need to focus that more because I heard attending it was really weird and it dragged on forever.
They had it last night unless I'm mistaken what the hardest shot competition is. Pettersson won at 103
Getting a reasonable deal done that quickly makes the Vancouver return look less impressive imo.
8.5 is less good
The next NYI GM is going to inherit an absolute mess
Yup. Terrific job, Lou. Can’t wait for his son to be the introduced as the next gm. He’s currently running the AHL team in Bridgeport.
zeberdee met Bernie Parent this weekend. Really cool guy.
guy is never in a bad mood.
Some upcoming FA's this offseason: Realistic AAV's?
Pastrnak I think starts at 11.
Bratt I would bet isn't going to budge below 9, unless he hits a cold spell in the second half.
Larkin is an interesting one, because I think he'll get 8 or 9 from someone and I don't think Yzerman will want to match.
evidently sabres and cozens are nearing a deal
Yzerman would be fine with 8, imo.
Trouba just knocked Kadri into the next All Star break and it was surprisingly clean
Trouba just murdered Kadri
That’s a clean hit
The situation room just makes stuff up
That was a horrible call. He clearly kicked it in lol
Open net merchant wins it for the Rangers
Teel sitting higher in the standings and still mad. Little brother stuff
Fuck Jamie Benn tbh
Fuck Blues fans tbh
Colton Parayko >>> Jamie Benn on the Alaska Nanook echelon of commits.
Unfortunately Parayko has been Benn tier terrible this year
