Posted Wednesday March 05, 2014, About: Luongo deal leads to more questions
Most of the stories I've seen seem to suggest that it was more of a fallout from the benching rather than the reason for it. Now, whether that's true or just more drama stirred up for another episode of As the Canucks Turns... who knows?

You guys do realize this is a story about the Buffalo Sabres which is a HOCKEY team...

Because the ref's are playing goal, too?
Posted Tuesday February 11, 2014, About: Team USA's opening lines based on balance
Seriously! That first line is not very "balanced." Why would Dustin Brown be on the number 1 line in the Olympics? Pacioretty or Parise should be in that spot.

Canada has a strong chance, but no team is gonna "run the table" at this tournament.

Let's see the Russian players' rooms...
Posted Monday February 03, 2014, About: Malkin wants gold ... and silver
I think we'll be surprised at what kind of influence the Krelim is gonna have on these guy's performances.

Boyz II Men are writing for the Post, now?
Posted Friday January 31, 2014, About: Canucks first-liner asked for less icetime
I saw "interim coach" and thought, "Wow. That was quick." Then I remembered that Torts is just crazy and had been given a timeout for pitching a temper tantrum.
Posted Thursday January 30, 2014, About: Four outdoor games next season?
They should just build an outdoor rink like in Mystery, Alaska, every year in a new location.
Posted Thursday January 30, 2014, About: Four outdoor games next season?
I don't necessarily think the games are bad. Yeah, they get really slow because of the ice conditions but its still pretty good hockey.
But I completely agree on the camera angles. I was yelling at the TV on Sunday because they stayed in the stupid blimp view for so long. It looked like ants crawling back and forth.

2 a year is a good idea. The game in Canada should include just Canadian teams and the US game could be done like the Super Bowl. Come up with a lottery or selection committee and have 2 teams play in a neutral (Northern) locale.
Posted Thursday January 30, 2014, About: Canada's Sochi contingency plan? 'We have none'
If they pull the NHLers out then we go back to the situation the League was in with some of the Russian players before the new CBA. Ovechkin and some others said they were going to play for their country in the Olympics no matter what the League said. So what happens then? The faces of several franchises jeopordize their contracts by going anyway? What does the Worm do if loses Ovie, Datsuyk, and Malkin because he said they can't play in the Olympics.
Posted Thursday January 30, 2014, About: Isles' top line in Capuano doghouse
I'm not really a Rangers or an Isles fan, plus, I'm a little burnt out on the outdoor game hoopla for this season, so I only caught the 3rd period of the game but that Isles top line looked really good in what I saw. It just looked like the Rangers were playing pretty good D and Lundqvist is starting to regain his form.

Not to mention that we (US) failed at security in the '96 Summer Games. We have no reason to act all high and mighty when atheletes and fans from visiting countries were ACTUALLY in danger on our soil.
Posted Thursday January 09, 2014, About: Johnson takes frustration out on USA Hockey
True... but Weber is more productive than Johnson and Johnson has played in front of MUCH better goaltenders this season than Weber has.

I guess my point is, is that if you dont have the stats to support your case for making the team, you probably shouldn't whine because "nobody gave you their trust."
Posted Thursday January 09, 2014, About: Johnson takes frustration out on USA Hockey
Seriously. He is 2-9-11 with a -11. Doesn't really represent an elite defensemen who can take on the best offences in the world. I realize he plays for the Blue Jackets but if he was Olympic caliber he stats should be a little better.
Posted Wednesday January 08, 2014, About: Staal on snub: 'Good enough to be on the team? Yes'
CAN and US have both done this with their rosters. They've used past international play and disregarded current/recent NHL play as rationale to include some players (Nash, Howard) and used current/recent NHL play regardless of international success to exclude others (Staal).
Posted Wednesday January 08, 2014, About: Staal on snub: 'Good enough to be on the team? Yes'
I do appreciate it. I've read (if you can call it that on some of these "news stories") TR for a while, just never really commented.
Everybody has to go through initiation at some point. I am prepared.
Posted Wednesday January 08, 2014, About: Staal on snub: 'Good enough to be on the team? Yes'
Excuse me. I'll be sure to watch my mouth from now on.

Geez, there are so many convoluted rules around here. It seems like I'm talking to the No Fun League and the Worm's No Hitting League.
Posted Wednesday January 08, 2014, About: Staal on snub: 'Good enough to be on the team? Yes'
That's true. But the dominant European teams are very speedy as well, so there will be some good competition for all the big clubs.
