this penguins-to-the-white-house thing has been . . . disappointing

sid is a master of 'pucks to the net/just gotta skate harder tomorrow' so it's not surprising that, particularly as a canadian citizen, he wants nothing to do with american politics

and i can understand that the franchise wants desperately to avoid alienating half (?) its fans. idk, maybe they could have been all 'we'll visit along with the NBA champs'? but we have very definitely come to the point where visiting the white house is a political photo op for its inhabitant, and if a side must be chosen, you might as well choose the right one.

i was at least hoping for a joke about how malkin would always be welcome

anyway, if you need help sleeping, here are loops of skaters practicing. the crunch of the ice never gets old: https://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/3pzvp5/til_that_after_the_radio_feed_ends_on_nhlcom/cwbrzar/?utm_content=permalink&utm_medium=front&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=hockey

Vegas account was talking some shit before the game about how both teams had the same number of consecutive playoff appearances.

I want to change my display name (dan m), Saturday, 14 October 2017 12:35 (seven months ago) Permalink

How energetically should I jump on the Leafs bandwagon? Can they win the Cup this year?

Answer in a way that a baseball fan can understand. Are they like the Cleveland Indians of the late '90s, filled with all these high-powered young hitters but with mediocre enough pitching (goaltending/defense) that their offense isn't enough? Or are they so good offensively that just okay defense and goaltending might do.

bigg-ish game in toronto tonight! you know, for october

clem i would say they're somewhere between those two -- probably the former, but maybe not. in any case, they're well on the way to being quite good and should in any case be exciting to watch

mookieproof, Monday, 23 October 2017 23:22 (seven months ago) Permalink

i don't think they can win the cup this season -- maybe next year -- but they should certainly make the playoffs and who knows, maybe their goalie gets hot

should get some ontario-quebec rivalries going too

Was hoping the Jets had enough gas to put up a better fight, but I'm happy for the GKs. What a wild year and playoffs. What hockey person, regardless of loyalties, could ever be disappointed in that run? Rooting for the West in the final.

This from Deadspin writer. Lack of superstition is refreshing. Just do the damn thing.

When it came time to accept the Campbell Bowl as West champions, the Knights don’t have a captain, so they sent out veteran Deryk Engelland. Without a moment’s hesitation, he grabbed the damn thing, eliciting a gasp from the Winnipeg crowd: There’s a superstition among some hockey players that you’re not supposed to touch the conference trophy, or you won’t win the big hardware. It’s obviously bull. Engelland said they had been encouraged by Fleury to touch the bowl, because, as Fleury noted, Sidney Crosby always does and together they won three Stanley Cups. “We talked about [touching the trophy] beforehand as a team,” Marchessault revealed. “We went against the odds all year.

If TB make it, there'll be two players on the ice that have a shot at a personal three-peat, which is cool. Fleury, Kunitz. Ole Reavsey would have to settle for personal two-peat.

andrew m., Monday, 21 May 2018 14:09 (five days ago) Permalink

reavsey was in st louis last year

actually crosby did *not* pick up the prince of wales trophy in '08, and they went on to lose to the red wings. after that, he did. lemieux hoisted it both times iirc
