    Kinda over my pinhead but it seems like a place to start.
    When are the dumbfucks in charge of this mess going to wake up and see that they are burying this league even deeper than it was when they actually played.:splat

    I used too, but not any more. I think the whole NHL is screwed now and will never fully recover from this strike. :cry

    I forgot all about Hockey until this thread.

    We could always replace it with bare-knuckles boxing.

    It's too bad, as it's a great sport. If the NHL would cut the bullcrap, and get back to real hockey, and get serious about eliminating all the stickwork and scrapping, then we'd have something.

    I much prefered watching Gretzky do his thing, rather than some goon on a headhunting mission.

    I like hockey. The NHL is kinda so-so. I like the minor leagues. We got two here and a healthy rivalry with kamloops. Last game I saw with the Tbirds taking on Kamloops was a barn burner. By the end of the game both teams had a hard time putting a full line on the ice. The players were all dog ass beat or ejected for fighting. :clap

    Yeah, I like hockey too. That's why this mess pisses me off so much... we have some minor league teams close by that are always a blast to catch - and it doesn't cost half a paycheck to go to the games!

    :nod A c-note gets you seats in the VIP boxes for a family of four. And the kids who play, play HARD. The crowd is small and enthusiastic.

    You wanna take on the Blazers, better bring your medic. TBirds and the Blazers have been beatin' on each other forever. My dad is a Blazer Fanatic, whenever I call him during the season half the phone call is about the damn team.

    NHL? The No Hockey League? :fitz The juniors play a way better game.

    The birds aint doing so well this year. Shit the 'tips shut them out and they are a second season team. I got me TWO WHL teams within 30 miles of the Rainier Ranch, here. Someone needs to give the 'tips designer a beating tho. The colors suck and Silvertips is a stoopid name for a hockey team.
