  1. I like it. But is this going to be another one of those jerseys with the "A" or "C" on the wrong side?
  2. I named 29 in under two minutes, but went down to the wire trying to remember the last team: the Coyotes. After just typing everything that came to my head immediately, I just broke it into groups: six Canadian teams, three California teams, four New York area teams (NYR, NYI, Devils, Sabres), etc. Then I went by division: who are the five teams in the NE? Atlantic? SE? Central? Then it got tricky because I don't know the NW and Pacific all that well. I guess that's why it took me so long to remember the Coyotes.
  3. This one was just too easy...the hard part was figuring out which team they would sponsor! The possibilities are endless... Yeah...ads on jerseys would be terrible. I already hate the ads all over the boards, especially the light-up ones. The Subway ad I saw on a Rangers game was a travesty. "Ads on jerseys or higher ticket prices" is a false choice. I'm sure putting ads on jerseys is not the only way (or even the best way) for the league to increase revenue. This post brought to you by McDonald's. I'm lovin' it.
  4. That was a trip down memory lane that this long-time Rangers fan did not want to take. They made some awful, awful moves in the late 90s/early 00s and continued the tradition with the Wade Redden signing. I'm telling myself that it will be different with Gaborik. Yeah right.
  5. ssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh...ah! ssssssshhhhhhhhh....aaaah! sssssssssshhhh....owah!
  6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luther_Blissett_(nom_de_plume) In a somewhat related note, it absolutely blows my mind that "Q," an insane novel written by an Italian collective under the name "Luther Blissett," was once listed as Matt Cullen's favorite book on the player bios page on the old site.
  7. haha...Devils Oust Canes! Dewey Defeats Truman! This one isn't from ESPN, but it's still funny:
  8. here you go: http://a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/ept_sports_nhl_experts__30/ept_sports_nhl_experts-72168549-1241727803.jpg?ym7cNOBDXwVkFZ8N' target="_blank">http://a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/ept_sports_nhl...m7cNOBDXwVkFZ8N[/post]
  9. At first glance I thought it said Manny Fernandez!
  10. I hope he ends up as a Canes regular just because we can have so much fun with that name...
  11. They just want his whereabout. Not all of his whereabouts, just one of them. Informationa bout his wherea bout. Yeah. This was posted yesterday. You think they would have fixed it by now.
  12. The league just doesn't care about hits to the head unless someone is injured. It's like only prosecuting a drunk driver if he kills someone.
  13. He explained that he said "Helsinki" because if he had said "Oulu," most people wouldn't know what he was talking about. How many people not from Finland know what time it is in Finland? He came within an hour; I'd say that's pretty decent. But sometimes you gotta wonder what exactly they taught Tripper at Harvard.
  14. That, and he kept his mullet well into the 90s. What a loser. I'd take Tripp Tracy any day over Brad Laughlin, Denis Potvin, Chico "Kermit Theee Frog" Resch, Joe Micheletti, Rick Jeanerette (I know he's play-by-play but no discussion of annoying announcer voices is complete without a mention of Mr. Lalalalalala Lafontaine), or just about anyone else. Tripp and John have a chemistry and a sense of humor you just don't get when John is on VS., although Ed Olczyk can get silly sometimes and Forslund has to tell him to calm down.
  15. I was going to say the same thing. It's even worse than I remember.
  16. Exactly. Even though he plays for a Canes division rival, I had respect for the guy because he just looked like he was having fun and playing hard. But now he's got this cockiness to him and I'm just waiting for someone to level him with a dirty, high open ice hit or drive him head-first through the boards and maybe bring him back down to earth a little.
  17. How about "The Bump-a-Marty Party," in honor of Chico Resch?
  18. Brodeur has always been a huge drama queen when it comes to people making contact with him. He went out of his crease, trying to draw an interference penalty, and he got burned. And because it hasn't been said enough, Chico sucks.
  19. I loved the attempt at the Lightning logo. Looks more like a lightning splat than a lightning bolt. I love MS Paint masterpieces.
  20. Damn, what a game. Naslund has really stepped it up for the playoffs, huh? Ovechkin was getting frustrated. He was looking more like Crosby, the way he would wave his hand at the referee every time his team was called for a penalty and throw his arms out every time his team failed to draw one. He also did a lot of standing around, which is unusual for him. He wasted too many opportunities trying to dance around Rozsival instead of a) letting someone else lead the rush or trying to set someone up. The Rangers vets, who have drawn so much criticism, have acquitted themselves well in this series so far. Rozsival wasn't horrible, Redden was actually OK, and Naslund and Gomez have been awesome.
  21. OK, let's brainstorm and see if we can come up with a better motto. "Attaboy Stallsy! Attaboy Wardo!" "Don't! Get! Eliminated! Yaaaay!" (with attendant fist pump) "Whatever it Takes, So Long As It is Within the Rules of the Game." "Win the Stanley Cup! Which is a Difficult Task What With All the Parity in the League Now!" "Sixteen Teams Enter. One Team Leaves. The Stanley Cup Playoffs. Actually, the Other Fifteen Teams Leave Too, They Just Leave Earlier. But You Get the Point."
