  1. Post Yo Face In The Twilight Sparkle Party

    With the Paralympics firing up this weekend, figured I would post a couple images from my very first sledge hockey game which turned out to be Team Canada Soldier On! Vs. USA Wounded Warriors. We played a game prior to the Stadium Series game between Toronto and Washington. What a fun sport to play, incredibly hard and humbling! Most of the USA Warriors team were single or double amputees and never had even played any form of hockey in their life. They were a very good team, we dropped our game 8-5 even with a secret weapon. Antoine Lehoux, who was one of the last cuts for team Canada in the Paralympics, was on my line and absolutely dominated play for us, but our American counterparts were just better organized and showed it with their amazing team play. Thanks to Antoine, I started my sledge hockey career as a point per game player! Picked up an assist on our 5th goal and got to hear my name announced in front of all the fans watching. Another cool thing was our guest coaches, they were George Parros and Sylvain Cote...both really nice guys!

    Ya, that's strange Joe. Try and re-upload on imgur and then re-paste in edit signature.
  4. Trade deadline OVER/UNDER Benning trades.= 0.5

    I don't disagree, it was just my guess.
  5. Trade deadline OVER/UNDER Benning trades.= 0.5

    I'm thinking 2. Vanek + Hutton.

    Nope. Just on the long stick! hahaha

    I actually like that thought. Thanks, Darius!

    Oh, easily...i'm sure there are clips of him standing straight up in the neutral zone on a back check, but also that could be clipped right before showing him heading off on a change. "Crosby doesn't back check!"
  10. [Signing] Canucks re-sign Erik Gudbranson

    Like I said, I wasn't defending the post, the clip he showed was a bad play on his part, there could have easily been a clip of him closing an angle or taking away an opportunity. I'm sure had he been locked up with Gourde, he could have tossed him with 1 hand, it's all perception, depending on what side of the argument you are on, you can always make somebody look really bad or really good, game film can be a bitch! haha.

    Heaven forbid somebody has a difference of opinion!

    But it's still his guy. Stecher has to bump out to the puck carrier and backside D needs to cover infront of the net. D-zone 101. Not defending the post, but the .gif shows exactly enough of a bad breakdown...he got caught watching.
  13. [Signing] Canucks re-sign Erik Gudbranson

    I don't know how to feel about this signing. It's as if everyone is still waiting for that big, nasty D man to show up. He has NEVER played a full NHL season, only played in 135 out of a possible 242 games over the last 3 seasons. He might throw 1 or 2 hits a game but is exposed in his own zone repeatedly. He doesn't play up to his size and his 1 or 2 hits a game really isn't worth 3 years at 4 million. I feel like he could have fetched a 2nd and the team would be way better off for the future than with Gudbranson on the back end....part-time, of course.

    If anyone watched Rogers Hometown hockey on sunday, I was with the Soldier On! Team and we got a little camera time out in cold Regina. On top of meeting 45 ex-NHLers (Sharing a Gala dinner table with Derek Dorsett and Mike Keane) and having Mark Howe and Rob Niedermayer buy me drinks at the hotel bar...My most favorite part of the weekend was being able to meet Ron Maclean! Such a nice guy! (Beside Ron with toque!)
