Re: [Hockey] Official~ NHL thread...........scores and highlites

said by vue666:

Jets Kane says criticism directed towards him is racially motivated...

»www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=415919

Well, its probably right because i doubt no white hockey player would do that, referring to that picture he tweeted of himself holding huge wads of cash like he was some gangsta...

He portrayed himself into a stereotype, and got the criticism he deserved IMO.

I guess Patrick Kane's escapades is indicative of the cheap white trash stereotype in that he cannot pay his cab fare.

I still want a horizontal alignment. That way, travel is spread out evenly amongst all teams instead of just penalizing the western ones.

I don't like it. What do Tampa and Florida have do to with TOR/MTL/OTT/BOS/BUF? Nothing, other than they share the same time zone. It also involves going past 7 other teams to get down to the other two. Tampa enjoys quite a bit of success when getting teams on the 2nd night of a back-to-back Florida tour, and doing that regularly isn't something I'm interested in watching.

Here's my radical change: OTT/MTL/TOR/BUF/BOS/NYI/NYR

It'll cost the NJD some tickets, but from what I've heard from Devils fans, Rangers fans who go to the Prudential Centre aren't exactly the kind of visiting fans you want in your building (read: they are bungholes). It'll add BOS-NYC rivalry for both NY teams, it'll keep travel more centralized, and it'll put the southern teams all in the same division. I know the NHL will never go for it, but it's what, as a fan, I'd prefer to see. If not, how about Detroit and Columbus instead?

Ah, so the two FL teams get full rinks courtesy of divisional rival fans going to games? If that's the league's idea of a business model, then things are on pretty shaky ground.

I agree with you.

Why not have a SE division with the 2 FL teams, Carolina, St. Louis,
Nashville and Dallas???

Keep as many of the the Original 6 together as possible.

Wild game in Tamba Bay. Caps win 4-3.

That 4th goal by the games is questionable IMHO....the whistle should have been blown, but my good friend Michael in Silver Spring, Maryland will be happy with the Caps win....

Good idea but it may wreck havoc on tv viewing... Say if Leafs and Canucks were in the same conference... Would Leaf fans appreciate a weekday game in Vancouver when it would be a 10:30pm game start (Ontario time)....

OR when Canucks played in TO, it would be a super time game start for folks in BC...

TV scheduling is more in line with North-South alignment then East-West....

To make realignment discussions a bit easier to visualize, here's a map of what the current proposal would look like:

Move the two Florida teams into Conference D, and the two New York teams to Conference C.

Yes, the Devils would be across the river from a team in a different conference, but who cares.

Yeah, that's what I was suggesting upthread. The Devils would still have PHI/PIT who they already have rivalries with.

Here's an interesting tidbit (courtesy of Pierre Lebrun, via Twitter):

As per CBA, Matt Cooke is no longer considered a repeat offender for purposes of calculating forfeited salary resulting from suspensions. CBA rule is that repeat offender status is reset if there's no suspension in 18 months. Cooke was last suspended in March 2011. That doesn't mean Shanahan wouldn't consider Cooke's past if something were to happen again though. This isn't unique to the new CBA; it was the same rule in the old CBA as well.

Unreal. Absolutely and totally unbelievable. Oh wait, it's the NHL & NHLPA we're talking about. Sadly, it is believable after all.

Employers do too, if they union member is worth a lot of money. Pittsburgh re-signed Cooke 3 years ago, and have kept him on their roster in spite of everything he's ever done. But hey, he hasn't been suspended in almost 2 of those 3 years, so it's all okay.

Remember, the NHL signed off on the CBA on behalf of the team owners, so it's as much an ownership / league problem as it is the PA.

in fairness to Cooke, he has cleaned his act up.

all it took was this:

Uhhh...no, that didn't do a damn thing to convince him to shape up. That was April 2010. Less than a year later, was this:

»www.youtube.com/watch?v=emTQpD8jmuw


Here's the story of that incident, which resulted in Cooke's FIFTH suspension: How should Lemieux react to Cooke's infraction? Remember, this incident was not long after Lemieux was criticizing the league for not doing more to protect his players during a brawl on Long Island (reference story).

my bad...either way, he has cleaned up his act quite a bit...he only had 44 PIMs last year...hopefully he has learned to cut that shit out.
