tbf i can imagine playing for the devils might sap one's love of the game

He also has a rich outer life but still

I for one welcome this eight year Barzal extension with the Isles.

Great Leafs joke in The Handmaid's Tale's second episode of S5 (from Bradley Whitford's Commander Lawrence, one of those memorably bizarre characters who, even as the show falls apart around him, continues to walk through his own TV show different than one everyone else is in):

"We figured you'd want to get back to Canada, move on with your life...take in a Leafs game...I hear this might finally be their year."

Anyone else catch the Maple Leafs dig on The Handmaid’s Tale last night?? 🤣 pic.twitter.com/3LEzTUljGS

Canucks blow 3 straight multiple-goal leads, all in regulation, to start the season. cool cool cool

symsymsym, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 01:54 (one month ago) link

Fwiw the new Coyotes college home does look cool and seems very loud, awoooo. The first goal was scored by someone at ASU named Doan, awoooo.

Should have gotten Matthew McConaughey in character from the Beach Bum to model this

who will be first to score at MULLETT ARENA

mookieproof, Saturday, 29 October 2022 02:55 (one month ago) link

awooo

They are giving away mullets to the crowd. The lack of a goal horn is noticeable though. Can you not just play one of the hundreds of goal horns on YouTube.

Michael F Gill, Saturday, 29 October 2022 03:25 (one month ago) link

Isles have started off the year 28 for 28 on the penalty kill btw

Michael F Gill, Saturday, 29 October 2022 03:26 (one month ago) link

penguins have been rapidly disabused of their decency via the western canada tour

i mean fine, oilers/flames back-to-back and second/third in four days is rough, but . . . the canucks are begging to be buried

mookieproof, Saturday, 29 October 2022 03:31 (one month ago) link

yikes pens. too bad they didn't get VAN a few days sooner.

thought columbus would be better this year - not so far

Michael F Gill, Saturday, 29 October 2022 04:40 (one month ago) link

well that is the worst northwest road trip, in 55 years, the penguins have ever had. because it's now possible to lose to seattle

mookieproof, Sunday, 30 October 2022 05:48 (four weeks ago) link

Really rough stretch for the Pens. Sabres actually looking great offensively so far.

Michael F Gill, Thursday, 3 November 2022 04:19 (three weeks ago) link

the pens have played maybe 3 good periods last 6 games. rough indeed. that said, some of the cellar-dwellers like kraken and sabes have looked good for longish stretches so far this year. great for overall league competitiveness i guess.

andrew m., Thursday, 3 November 2022 13:53 (three weeks ago) link

Am enjoying the parity so far.

I don’t like that alternate jersey for the Sabres, it looks a lot like the Preds design, but worse. The alternate neon green Dallas jersey is really cool though.

We could watch John Tavares' (@91Tavares) second goal on repeat all night long. 🤤 pic.twitter.com/AX04cMWUCg

why do teams keep doing shit like the bruins signing this asshole kid?

i mean the guy's a fourth-round defenseman. he's wholly unnecessary and he makes everything you claim to stand for look like garbage

mookieproof, Saturday, 5 November 2022 19:51 (three weeks ago) link

Yeah, doesn’t even sound like the league wants to even let him be eligible for a pro game, so not sure what the Bruins are thinking here

Michael F Gill, Saturday, 5 November 2022 20:37 (three weeks ago) link

great job, bruins

(actual good job by bergeron/marchand/foligno for being publicly against it, however thoroughly couched in hockey player cliche)

mookieproof, Monday, 7 November 2022 18:15 (three weeks ago) link

yeah you don't hear pro athletes willing to criticize someone's character like they did very often. as much as I hate to praise those players.

symsymsym, Tuesday, 8 November 2022 02:11 (three weeks ago) link

ulf sammuelsson was right

mookieproof, Tuesday, 8 November 2022 02:36 (three weeks ago) link

I only caught the first couple of years of Borje Salming's career, pretty much a baseball fan after that. As I'm sure you know, they had a big emotional ceremony for him Saturday night.

avs, down one, had a 5-on-3 for the last 1:45 of the third — and pulled the goalie with a minute left to go 6-on-3 — and did not score

mookieproof, Tuesday, 15 November 2022 04:46 (two weeks ago) link

My daughter’s pee wee A team had a tie game
this weekend with like 45 seconds left and a face off in the opponents’ zone. I so wanted the coach to pull the goalie to show the kids what GOING FOR IT looks like. But he didn’t. Game ended a tie.

kings with basically a perfect road game tonight

outshot edmonton 32-23, 29 blocked shots, held mcdavid and dreiseitel scoreless with one shot each. only oilers pp was cut short when mcdavid crosschecked someone behind the play. danault-arvidsson-moore line was killer

mookieproof, Thursday, 17 November 2022 06:02 (one week ago) link

Highly recommended:

I knew the story reasonably well--and was watching Game 8 in my grade 6 pod--but it's hard to convey just how bizarre some of that was, especially Alan Eagleson's antics during the final game. Tretiak comes across as the nicest guy in the world; what Bobby Clarke did in Game 6 puts a damper on Canada's win.
