    Jarude - I wish TSN was still in the mix as I do like a lot of their people especially Duthie, Ward, Ferraro and of course McKenzie.

    Sportsnet has some good people too but overall the TSN product is better I agree.

    4 year countdown to the end of hockey on CBC? Possibly - their production has not kept pace and is somewhat embarrasingly bad at times, with all their improvements basically stolen ideas from the other two.

    Friedman and maybe PJ Stock are the only two guys worth keeping...Mclean and Cherry will gracefully retire as I see it unfold.

    But big money though...per capita it is bigger than what the NFL gets from its US rights.

    Bryzgalov posts a shutout in his debut for the Oilers, his first NHL game in 7 months.

    had second row seats right behind Peter Budaj for periods 1 and 3 last night in DC. Great shootout win by Grabovski. :slayer:

    apparently an alarming people associated with Cornell Hockey had hard times staying on their skates tonight. Two Cornell players totally wiped out in tonight's game at MSG (one resulted in a goal against), and then Scrivens for LA on that first goal for Calgary.

    eek.

    Fucking absurd. Why do GM's sign goalies to long term deals like this.

    the rumor is the Rangers wanted a 4-5 year deal, but Hank wanted the security of long term. He wins out.

    apparently this B's and Pens game was a bit of a doozy.



    i don't like either team, and I think Marchand is a little piece of shit, but based on a poor quality video replay feed, James Neal is a complete and total piece of shit. 5+ games?

    Thank god I didn't wake up at 4am for that Flyers game. They really need to start trading for faster players. It always looks like they are in slow motion. And don't get me started on 'Fraud' Giroux, the most overrated player in the league. I will lose my shit if he makes it on the Canadian Olympic team, he doesn't even backcheck anymore.

    I hate the Pens more than the B's and I hope Neal gets at least 5 games. He is a sneaky dirty piece-of-shit player.

    It is a telephone hearing for Neal meaning the max he can get is 3 games if I am not mistaken. Idiotic move on his part and I agree it deserves a lot more and I hate Marchand but that totally crossed the line.

    Then we have Thornton who is pounding a non willing player while his head is on the ice. As bad or worse than Bertuzzi-Moore.

    If the league really gives a shit Thornton is gone 40+ and I really mean that. Regardless of your opinion on the Orpik hit or his unwillingness to fight, Thorton's actions were up there with the ugliest the league has seen.

    5 is the most via phone hearing, and indeed Neal was given all 5 games. The more I see the replay, the more I was figuring 7-8 games.

    5 is a joke. I dont have any horse in this race but this is exactly why discipline is such a joke in the league.

    Neal went right out of his way to knee an unsuspecting player in the head. How that only gets 5 is beyond me.
