    What's the difference between the Toronto Maple Leafs and a triangle?









    A triangle has three points.

    Hey, the Wild only have four. Five straight road losses, outscored 20-10, and both wins are come-from-behind/overtime wins. I think the new system will take a little time to get ironed out.

    Meanwhile, Gaborik is healthy as a fucking ox....

    That makes me want to cry. ~ 58 million dollars worth of hockey contracts and we can't even beat a 2D geometric shape.

    Well at least MLSE was able to prevent Balsillie from moving a team to Hamilton. Consequently you have exactly 1 more point than Hamilton does. So feel free to celebrate: you're very narrowly beating a team that doesn't exist.

    There were some brutal hits this week. Tucker, Booth etc... I don't like seeing stretchers on the ice.

    heads up? man , the post of the hit above was a total blindside. No way he could have avoided that.

    It wasn't from the side, it was from an angle. He most certainly could have seen it coming, but the last couple of paces he had his head down. Can't do that in hockey at any level.

    Toews hit was totally clean. The biggest piss-off was that they jumped Mitchell afterwards for what was not in the least a dirty play, and the idiot refs blew the whistle, while Sedin and Edler were 2 on 0. If you want to essentially cheat, and jump a guy for a clean hit, you should have to take what comes from that, namely a goal... the refs boned that play. Luckily we won the game anyway but at the time I was fucking incensed. Teacher Gaborik left the game last night with 8 minutes left after falling into Lundqvist so the dream might finally be over after what, 10 games? It's bound to happen sooner or later, either way. If you do want to see a Canuck hit that WASN'T clean, look no further.

    Ah, I hadn't really read up on yesterday's news and didn't know about Gabby. I'm not saying I'm glad he's hurt, but if he went on to be healthy from now on, I'd be pissed.

    And yes, that hit was nasty, reminescent of Ty Domi's horrible and infamous elbow on Niedermeyer.

    No word on whether he's hurt or how bad yet, Torts basically said the game was out of reach (they had a 3 goal lead) and he didn't want to take any chances. But it's Gaborik so the rumours must fly. Domi was just a dirty player though, Bure was tired of getting roughed up in that series and just lost his head. Canucks have an interesting history of hits during the 90s playoffs, though none more memorable than Linden vs. Norton vs. The first 2 rows of the Coliseum:

    I agree. I was just talking about the severity of each hit.

    For reasons I don't understand, the NHL (and possibly the media) react astoundingly differently to each big hit. How is it that one player can be suspended 4 games and another suspended 16 for what amount to being the same infractions? If coaches, analysts, and players can't figure it out, I sure as hell can't.

    How big a star are they? For example, Ovechkin is immune to suspension. The result is basically that someone is going to feed him ice and plexiglass at some point.

    Malkin is a good example of this.
