Yep!  That's the whole thing.  My back was against the boards when I took this photo.roflmao.gif

Well Dupuis is likely done for the year seeing as he is scheduled to have surgery on his ACL. Somehow the WBS Crosbys keep winning.

How do you blow a three goal lead when you are one of the best home teams in the league and you are playing one of the worst road teams, who also happened to play the night before?!?!  So typical of the Wild for the past few years - no consistency.  They look great for stretches and then just stink up the place so badly, it's appalling.  Time for coach Yeo to be canned.  Just infuriating to watch.

Vladi Konstantinov..what a great player.  Great to see him again.  And Kocur wearing 24 is a nice touch.  It's nice when NHL calibre players slow down to more like my speed..  :-)

It's professional pond hockey!

Snowing now 10 min in to the 1st at 1/2 inch per hour. Not bad!

Seemed to have effected the Toronto power play which could do little.

Bit of a talent upgrade from Mike Eruzione and Jim Craig, but likely not the same heart.

 

Obviously, Canada, Russia and Sweden will also be tough.

Ca and Ru seem to be weaker in goal than their primary rivals... (Assuming Quick gets healthy, but Ryan Miller is still no slouch.) But I guess Lundqvist has been off a bit this year.

Take the "analysis" with a grain of salt. Their Swedish write-up sucks pickled fish guts.

post #3198 of 5068

A lot of the success will depend upon team chemistry, and possibly hot goaltending. But,

 

Dayuum, is team Canada deep or what? Except in goal. They also seem to have the best mixture of skill and physicality (if that is a word.) But the Olympics are a bit different from the NHL.

 

For the all-hands team: Datsyuk, Kovalchuk, Malkin, Ovechkin, Semin. They may not win it, but they will have some hi-light goals.

 

Don't sleep on the Swedes.

Well that is their preliminary roster from July, right after Fluery imploded and was pulled as a starter. I'm guessing unless they are stupid he will be on the roster they unveil this week.

They also have some chemistry opportunities. Basically the entire Penguins top power play unit is on team Canada (Crosby, Neal, Kunitz, Letang). You also have the Staal line from Carolina and the Hawks are sending Toews and Kane. You basically can flesh out three lines with players that are already accustomed to playing together.

Kane is playing for the US, Toews (and Sharp) for Oh Canada.

 

Edit: But I think all countries will try to leverage players who have played with each other in the NHL. Chemistry is already there.

My mistake, I misread Patrick Sharp as Patrick Kane.

Yeah, Erik Johnson got screwed by this. He has been playing SO well this season, and has always represented the US. A little puzzled by the Orpik-Martin thing, except for Bylsma. Whatever. It's probably good for the Avs. And no Yandle? Bobby Ryan? 

 

In any case, this makes me so excited for Olympic hockey. I remember sitting right here on the same sofa up in Copper, watching the gold medal game last time. Flipping Crosby. Loved Kesler, hate the Canucks ... it's great.

 

And those Russian forwards, what a murderers row!

Is definitely better for the Avs. That's going to be a rough trip and time change. Get the rest instead.

 

I find the Ryan thing weird. It's great to have a bunch of responsible 2-way forwards and I realize US pool is wing-heavy, but every once in a while you just need a guy who can just flat-out score.

Ya, I was having a few flashbacks to 2nd grade in Minnesota.  First thing coming to mind is that the ear lobes most have been FREEZING on those skaters.  One thing that I remember doing when it was really cold playing or practicing at night outdoors was rubbing a layer of vasoline petrolium jelly on my toes for added insulation.  It actually worked pretty well to keep my toes warm but gunked up my socks hahaha.

post #3208 of 5068

Looking forward to Olympic hockey, bigger ice, faster game. I've always been a bigger fan of international hockey than NHL. Feel asleep last night watching the Canucks play their worst game of the year. They even got beat by some second rate team from that hockey state of Florida.

In the Olympics there are always the favorites but watch out teams like Switzerland and Solvakia. With single game knock outs strange things often happen. International hockey is way closer than it ever was in the past.

But If Canada does not at least make the final there will be an awful lot of second guessing. No pressure here.
