I am glad hockey is back, I am tired of all the "normal" sports (I hate football and basketball with a passion!). Too bad I wont see any live NHL for awhile. I return to the states in Feb, til then it is all internet.
Hockey on TV sucks, I've never watched a whole game and don't follow the season. I've been to a bunch of collegiate div 1 games and enjoyed it. I'll probably go up and see a game or two in DC this year.
My nose bleed seat was right behind this big structure pillar!! hahahaah. No matter how much I crooked my neck, I couldn't see the ice. Literally had to stand up and watch the entire game from the isles.
Was also cool to see the Zambonee drive through the canteen area to get on and off the ice!
yeah...Leach was a tuff scrapper who could actually play the game!!
hooray a Bs thread!
i was watching the game on saturday at TGIFridays and saw Crosby get his first goal which is good for my fantasy team, but put the Bs down by two and i thought, whelp, good way to start the new year 0-3, wankers. So I get home and throw on SC to catch highlights before I hit the sheets and they end up winning, go figure!
btw, I rule more than you. I have a stick signed by last years team (well THE last years team). You cant make out some of the illiterate foriegner's sigs, but you can tell the big ones; Thornton, Razor, Samsonov, Murray, etc
OLN's game coverage is already improving. I thought last night's Sabres/Penguins game was much improved, although they still have a ways to go.
Does anyone besides me see the new rule changes making a difference? The games definitely have more flow to them. Players are not getting tied up in the neutral zone as much, and Power Plays are more fun to watch with the expanded offensive zones.
