re: 2015 NHL All Star Game Thread.
Posted by Baloo on 1/25 at 8:49 pm
Yeah, NHL bent over backwards for CBJ on that one. Tavares scored 4 goals, which is sort of great, even in an All Star Game. Still, great day for Columbus and I'm glad y'all had a good time. ...

re: Anybody watching the NHL All Star Draft?
Posted by Baloo on 1/25 at 8:38 pm
The car thing has finally been explained. Ovi was gonna donate any car he won to the NoVa Cats, a local hockey team for special needs kids. That's why he was trying to drop in the draft (the other guys didn't know, they were playing along because it was really funny). Anyway, Honda like everyone els...

re: Greatest American Born Hockey Players
Posted by Baloo on 1/23 at 9:14 pm
LaFontaine's numbers are a bit misleading because of his era, as is anyone who played in the 80s. I'm with everyone on Modano, though I think Leetch has a pretty good case as a defensemen (though I'm surprised no one mentioned Phil Housely). While we're bringing up underrated guys... Keith Tkachuk. ...

I got a kick out of the NHL going full troll on the Caps, naming Forsberg as the replacement for Malkin, and not Backstrom. So not only does Nicky still not get an ASG, the NHL named the player the Caps traded away. Well played, NHL. ...

Very cool. No idea it was a true story, though it is pretty typical of DBT to try and tell stories from the other's point of view. That's why they tell the story of Walking Tall from the point of view of the criminals. They are a band fascinated with telling the stories of the voiceless. One of Cool...

I think we'll crank up the Zamboni and get ourselves some fresh ice for the second half of the season, but before we do that, let's take stock in the season so far as we are roughly at the halfway point. EAST 7 points separates 1st place (Tampa) from 8th (Boston). Which is also the same gap bet...

I'm pretty sure during the 70s, "pregame warmup" meant puking up the beer you had been pounding all day. Though there's really not a lot a guy can do to work out his head to make it okay, I'm glad Letang seems all right. That was a ridiculous cheap shot, and Letang is not the kind of player who ...

It was illegal as hell. He was head-hunting, and like any good goon, he gave himself a cover story so he could argue he was making a hockey play when he wasn't. Rinaldo should be suspended and when he gets back, cut by the Flyers. That said, Broad Street hockey opened up a can of rhetorical whoo...

re: Super Bowl Viewership: Lowest Since 09'?
Posted by Baloo on 1/21 at 10:18 am
I think this has all the earmarks of a great Super Bowl. It's the two best teams, both trying to stamps themselves as one of the greatest teams ever (though the Belichek Pats are already on the list). If anything, I think this will be the highest rated of the past 5 years. And outside of whiny Sa...

Watchmen, of course, but I think you need to understand the comic book tropes they are playing off of before you read it. It's a criticism of an industry, and if you're unfamiliar with the thing being criticized, it will make no sense and lose a lot of its power. Sandman is ambitious and has som...
