Glad to have hockey back but man this is painful to watch.
Injury bug hitting the Blues already
Sanford, Berglund, Bouwmeester and Steen wont start the season. The first two are out for several months.
Hitchcock’s first game back and he beats the Blues
I hope the Sens steer clear of Duchene. Feel like Dorion is going to make a push over the next year or so and make some risky calls.
I love the VGK twitter account so much
That's amateur hour. Reeks of little dick syndrome.
Why, it's pretty meh.
That being said it was not very smart from the mtl guys to taunt vegas.
it's just twitter who cares let them have some back and forth.
because they realize that its just a game and playful banter with opposing teams is fun not rude
Yeah I guess some can have some fun with this
I remember having an NHL team to root for.
Honestly we're a top 4 team in the east, but that's been with Karlsson in the lineup imo. Gonna be interesting to see how we can survive without him to start
Whats the feedback on new arena?
Hot n ready
That it is amazing. My buddy has season tickets so I'll go at some point but man this team is bad and won't likely be fun to watch.
My money is on Ottawa missing the playoffs.
There has been 7 slashing penalties in the Blues/Stars game tonight
yea, they are calling anything close in the preseason to try and break player's habit of tapping
Hopefully the players adjust because watching a 60min long PP is not fun
No you're not.
I remember a decade or so ago when they decided interference needed to go. Was some of the worst hockey for a month or so with all the stoppages
same w having to keep your skates on the ice during hits
It's a change that was needed. It will suck for a month, but eventually players will adjust.
More likely refs will just stop calling it
They won't call the taps that don't impact the play, but they are going to call all the ones that result in the puck carrier losing the puck.
No real problem with guys using their shaft with two hands on their stick, usually in tight during a battle. It's when they use the blade as a weapon. That's what causes injuries.
Yeah they call that spearing. It's a major.
Hearing Calgary is close to getting Duchene.
Oh ya I forgot about that pic. Miss farva and his typical American mentality.
Tom Wilson suspended for 2 preseason games, that will show him.
Because he left his skates? I didnt think the hit was that bad. Hit him in the chest
It wasn't late as fuck.
The explanation video was saying it was way late, have certainly seen a lot worse not going to the league office.
I've tried watching parts of a couple preseason games and no idea what is currently going on with the way they are calling games now.
That's the NHL I know
Duchene will be dealt to the Penguins a few weeks into the season for Carl hagelin. Chad Ruhwedel or Carter Downey and a future second round pick.
Chabot is going to be so good, i think he will end up being better than letang.
Perfect. He can take over for EK when he gets traded next summer.
interesting thread on Crosby/Trump
Some of the Mizzou guys were discussing the Pens going to the white house and BLACK & GOLDschlager said:
I wish Paul kayria still played and was on that team just to watch trump freak out over his last name
He's a hockey robot. Reading anything more into him saying its an honor to go is a little much. I wish the team wouldn't go but hockey I don't think we'll see the same level of protest, especially since the league isn't mostly American like other major sports.
I'm not surprised that was his response, but I'm not sure he should just get a pass since he acts like a robot.
it's a strange dynamic and tough for me to call because individually he's not an American, but he's the face of an American franchise. it would be nice if he'd speak candidly on issues but I doubt it ever happens.
Athletes shouldn't be getting attacked for staying neutral on political issues. Not everyone has the personality to speak out or have the complete knowledge to not sound ignorant on topics. Better that than saying something stupid.
I don't think anyone is being attacked.
