NHL/Sochi - February 2014

Recommended Posts

1) Is Hockey Canada paying Stamkos millions of dollars like TB is?

2) There will be no compensation payments being made, that was a joke.

With that Korean time difference, they can start the Canada games first every day, and we can watch before going to bed.

 

Bars in Winnipeg will be open at 5 am on Sunday for the gold medal game. In related news, I will not stop drinking after visiting the Festival du Voyageur on Saturday night...

As was mine.

OK. I'm still pissed that I have 10 games of what are now pure shit that I paid for.

 

And the only good thing that came out of these Olympics was that Kevin Dineen (who along with Ron Francis was my hero growing up) was the coach of the Canadian women's team. Congrats to him!

Peter Botte @PeterBotte 22h

Michael Peca got hurt in the playoffs once. That's why the Islanders don't participate in them anymore.

RT @ChrisBottaNHL: Tavares injury was awful. But Isles mgt was furious over Okposo not making USA. Now ripping IOC. Can't have it both ways.

Woo...Botte/Botta doubleslam!

 

I have no idea who either of those dudes are.

The Islanders beat writers are generally pretty fun, I guess partially because having to follow Charles Wang and Garth Snow around has likely driven them insane.

I was trying to think how mad I'd be if one of the Jets got hurt, then I remembered that Trouba and Schiefele didn't make it, so I'd probably be pretty cool with it.

 

I'd glady sacrifice Olli Jokinen's knee (both of them! and other parts too!) to get Tavares back on the ice, if it makes Mike feel any better.

Hemsky getting hurt at the Olympics would have been glorious because it means he wouldn't get traded again and the same people convinced he's horrible because they have bad opinions about hockey would start crying again.

Can you get Balls Mahoney or Kevin Sullivan to officiate the sacrifice?

Somewhere, Buffalo cab drivers are raising a pint to Rask.

So we can just go ahead and name Teemu Selanne History's Greatest Man now, right? Who's even close, Jonas Salk? How many Olympic goals did he score?

And Patrick Kane continues to disappoint <_<

 

Yeah but he probably put in a gold medal worthy performance in the athletes village so all is not lost for him.

Some in Sweden aren't even waiting to lose before they make excuses, Forsberg calling the game having Canadian referees (instead of those great, great KHL officials) a "fucking joke".

 

I mean... if anyone would know about joke refereeing it should be Forsberg, since he spent as much time laying on the ice as actually playing some nights.

You're right Canadian referees refereeing a Canada is definitely legit.

If we can't use Canadian and American referees to do international tournaments because some other country might be butthurt, then maybe international hockey dying isn't such a bad idea after all.

 

I mean, as long as we also don't use refs from Russia, Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, or Slovakia, I'm fine with it. Let some traffic cop from Germany do it.

I'd rather actually use good referees instead of creating a controversy where absolutely none exists except in the imagination of Peter Forsberg.

Foppa's right, this is a joke. I can't believe you're trying to defend this DFA. It's not like they'd be inviting the women refs that officiated the women's gold medal game. There must be three referees from outside Canada who can call this game.
