i can't believe after all the adversity he's faced he'd do this, when anything he does can get him sent down or benched or whatever

Big hockey fan here. It sounds strange when I hear some of you guys say that nobody cares. I guess that's one of the benefits of living in Canada - it's the only sport me and my friends watch...although I've been known to watch girl's volleyball too...and UFC, which I just realized shows more skin than female beach volleyball...
Oiler fan since '83. Too bad we're out. I predict NJ over Calgary.
I'd hope to see Capitols vs Chicago.

Avery is such a **** -- and that was no accident.. I love that Thomas just flipped **** and came after him though haha, I love to see the goalies get in on it..
On the same subject, anybody ever been punched by a blocker? Seriously like getting your head bashed by a 2x4..

I'd love to see calgary there, I'd pick them over the nucks for a canadian team to make it... in the east i gotta go with either NJ or Boston, both have top notch tenders

Avery is just out to start trouble, the NHL could end this whole thing by giving him a long suspension some day but refuses to. And yes...blockers hurt, a lot.

avery is just doing his job thats the type of player he is guys ! he defines the term agiatator .. btw rangers if they do make the playoffs will beat the devils in round 1 .. thats just the way i see it looking round 1

He's a clown and whenever anyone challenges him, he acts like he didn't do anything, just so he can talk smack to the media when it's safe.

haha I don't mind the habs, but Georges Laraque is the most overrated fighter in my opinion... hes big and strong and just basically wrestles his opponents, have you ever seen him really go toe to toe with someone?

Go Blues!! Best team in hockey for the whole second half of the season. (look it up if you dont believe me!!) Going to the game tonight! Down 3-0 to Vancouver Its pretty exciting here despite being down in the series. Every game has come down to the last 2 minutes of the game, but man Lounugo is killing us! If we only had Paul Kariya and Eric Johnson off the DL we would be golden
We haven't had playoff hockey in STL since before the ******* and I have so many friends that are Cardinal fans that are more worried about the first 15 games of a 162 game baseball season. It drives me crazy. How can you worry about regular season baseball when playoff hockey is here!?! Its madness! After watching hockey all season long, going to a baseball game is extremely boring until youve watched a couple in a row!!! Its a hard switch for me and I played baseball on my university baseball team for 4 years, so its not that I don't like baseball. its just that hockey is way more exciting and fun to watch.
These guys are real athletes. Baseball players cant play a game if there stomach is upset or the had a muscle spasm before the game. Hockey players play with broken bones, missing teeth and can punch each other during the game. Thats a real athlete. Most other professional sports athletes are total pussays!!

Kariya and Johnson wouldn't have been the make or break, we just have a young team. Playoff hockey is completely different that season hockey. I love how much they have already accomplished, I am looking to future seasons.
Although attacking on baseball players is just incessant. Baseball is a much more precise game, hence a reason an impinged nerve will totally kill your game. Pujols has been playing 8 years injured, and he doesn't cry. Every sport has their vagina's. As for whoever called it boring... that is your opinion.. there is a reason it is the biggest sport in the US.

Maybe not the regular season, but I think in this series that Kariya and Johnson would be the make or break, especially in the last 3 games! We'll just have to agree to disagree.
As far as baseball goes, sorry I was on a little of a rant because I just asked my buddy if he wanted to go to the game for free tonight and he declined because the Cardinal/Mets game is on tonight!?!? What an ass! I share a 40 game pack with another couple for the cardinal games. I am and have always been a huge Baseball/Cardinals fan. I have always looked forward to preseason and opening day. However, ever since I became a hockey fan. I don't find myself looking forward to preseason baseball and opening day, because hockey is usually still going on. For me, when I go to the first 2 or 3 games, my head isn't in the game because it is soo slow in comparison to hockey. I worded it wrong in saying it was boring, because it is in no way boring. Go Blues!!! then after GO CARDS!!!
by the way, what do you think of Carpenter maybe being on the DL again!?

my boring comment was to someone previous in the thread, my fault for not pointing that out actually. I feel ya on that though, when baseball is starting up, hockey is in the heat. I feel the same way at the end of the baseball season, and football kicks off. When you are pushing for playoffs, its hard to look at anything else.
Carpenter is a great player, problem is he does not know his own limitations. He is a pitcher for Gods sakes.. he shouldnt be swinging for the rafters like that and tearing muscles off his rib cage. He is a world class player, and only hope one of these days he can return to his old self. But I am loving watching the rookies take over. I love watching rookies period.
I think Kariya and Johnson would have brought some much needed veteran experience...but this team pushed to the playoffs, then got stuck looking around because it is a whole different world. If they got here, they should be able to play through. But Oshie just isnt bringing his stuff, crombeen is looking lost, and taking useless penalties. Now I just home Cam gets more play time tonight and puts a hurt on them, like we did first period sunday.

When metallica was here a couple months ago. My wife hooked me up with tickets and I was bumping elbows with jansen and stasny. Jansen was pretty cool. We talked for a while between sets!! Fun night!

I would also disagree slightly with the notion that Baseball is much more precise: it takes as much skill to glove a 107MPH slap-shot as it does to hit a 98MPH fastball; it takes as much [or more] skill and precision to stickhandle through the slot and then roof a wrister as it does to throw a perfect curveball. Aside from those areas - hitting and pitching - I really cannot see the precision in the Baseball!
Hockey players engage in each and every activity any other sport does, and they do it traveling twice as fast - on skates.

I have been on the other end of trying to hit that mid 90's fastball, and that was in the cages... to try to say it is easier to use a bat to connect with a ball, than it is to place your glove in front of a puck is comparing apples to oranges.
I have been on the receiving end of both in my youth, and honestly say that connecting on that fast of a pitch with an extension of your limbs take more precision. Now does that take anything away from hockey, not in the least... different sports, different strengths.
You cannot see the precision, because it is not your sport, or you have not played. I could still play hockey with a fractured wrist, taped and cortisoned to hell... but I couldn't put the bat on a ball if I tried.
