  1. 2018 Young Stars Classic returns to Penticton

    It's disappointing. My son and I usually make our way down from Edm for this, but probably won't this year. You could see it coming, though. Seems like there was always an argument about the location, often the top prospects didn't play (or didn't play much) and I guess Katz figured he wasn't bleeding enough out of the fans there. Too bad, but oh well. And they can forget about us driving to Red Deer to watch half a tourny featuring a bunch of never-will-be's. Got better things to do.
  2. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators

    Did he do it to a rookie goaltender, though? Cuz Russell did.
  3. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators

    More good news, guys? Russel just scored on his own net w/1:05 left. Cost Oilers the game.
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators

    That's OK. Being out of market, I miss a lot of games. Usually just follow the play on the game threads here because I refuse to hand money directly to the NHL. Oddly, it reminds me of the old Jim Robson radio days for some reason.
  5. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators

    Free Range wouldn't have worked for me. Out of market.
  6. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators

    Really? Because it was out in Edmonton, Calgary, and N Ontario.
  7. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators

    Hey, look at that! Shaw is back on. Nice timing, guys.
  8. [PGT] Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Popped over to the penguins board to see their take on the loss. It wasn't pretty. They're pretty much blaming every goal against on Letang. Some want him to sit, some want him out. Kind of reminded me about how we treat our own d-men around here when they're not perfect.

    Haha. Ehlers hat trick. Suck on that, Oilers.
  10. [PGT] Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks

    This quote kills me. Rattles off the standard Oilers "dirty Canucks" mantra while being completely oblivious to the fact that the guy he's praising at the end TOPPED THE LIST of "dirty Canucks" not that long ago. Couple that with the near universal belief here that every clean, hard check is a "liberty taken against our players" that requires a nuclear response, and you get the insanity of the "Manifest Destiny" Oilers fanbase. That's not the entire fanbase, of course. But it's the faction that the local media plays to.
  11. I like this one. Just because here in Edmonton, they're already counting the 2 points. Hutton with first goal Markstrom with the 7th
  12. There were a total of six games played in this tourney. It struck me today that three of them ended with handshake lines and three didn't. The three that didn't were all Winnipeg games. Odd. In fact, Edm went looking to start one and the Jets guys just skated off. What's with that?
  13. It wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't play today. These games are more about seeing what you've got down-roster. And main camp is coming up.
  14. 2017 Canucks Young Stars - Penticton

    Just back from the Oilers-Jets game. Total snore-fest. Scrambly, no real hitting apart from a couple cheap shots, no real flow. I want my 12 bucks back.
  15. [Poll] 'Around the NHL' GDT New Format?

    I voted just one GDT. Probably not enough traffic to warrant 2. But, if it went Sat to Fri instead of Sun to Sat, the HNIC games would always top the thread and those are the games most people watch. Just a thought.
