  1. [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.
  3. [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.
  4. I like this one. Just because here in Edmonton, they're already counting the 2 points. Hutton with first goal Markstrom with the 7th
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. [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.
  9. 2017 Canucks Young Stars - Penticton

    Yup. Me, my son, and a friend. The friend is an Oilers guy, though. So hopefully the baby C's can shut his mouth for awhile.
  10. 2017 Canucks Young Stars - Penticton

    My son and I are heading down to YST again this year. Kind of becoming a yearly thing now. Makes for a nice break and you see pretty good hockey without needing to rob a bank. Accommodations are tough, though. Jazz festival is the same weekend.
  11. [Signing] Oilers re-sign Connor McDavid

    I feel the league needs to do something about these ridiculous signing bonuses. Perhaps by making up some stupid, punitive rule and applying it retroactively to existing contracts that they've previously approved. For the good of the game, of course.
  12. McLean promising an "exposé" on hip checks and knees. Wonder who he's going to hatchet this time?
  13. I hope someone captured the pic of that bruin fan blubbing into his towel. I need a new wallpaper.
  14. Bruins aren't threatening to kill anybody. No heart!
  15. Buh bye, beansters. Looks good on you.
