Agreed, also if Victor Hedman does not make this list we all know it is just plain biased for whatever reason.

I was one of those that talked about what a huge liability he was defensively because, well, at the time he was.

BUT, I've also said on numerous occasions that it takes quite a while for a defenseman to adjust to the NHL game. Look no further than Victor Hedman. I agree with you both that Leddy had a much better year this year (I think the added responsibility may have actually helped, along with the experience) and there's no reason to think he won't continue to progress. Very happy for him and I agree that the trade was a win-win for NYI and CHI.

I'll say it again, with the rumors out there, no ads on the jerseys. I'll never buy one. I understand there is money there but that would be so ugly. Can't imagine the Blackhawks logo or Wings logo with a comcast or Motorola logo next to it.

Also, just bought my first tickets for the season. November 25th vs the Bruins cause Thanksgiving Eve has sorta become a tradition for me and my dad. I think this will be our 5th game on that night. Also got tickets for my birthday vs the Jets. First time in a while they've been at home on my bday so that's pretty awesome.

I think ads on jerseys will be either very gradual or just won't happen.

I don't mind the stripes. They're okay and kinda cool on some of the concept jerseys. But actual ads can go fly a kite.

Agreed, to hell with that idea. If it does indeed happen I will simply to to eBay or amazon and get an old school jersey and customize it as I wish.

I mean, the main issue here is that most of the leagues where there are ads there on jerseys don't have commercials like American sports do. It's used to supplement that loss of potential ad revenue. Having both is just ridiculous.

If they do put ads on, the jerseys fans can buy should not have them on, or at least have an option to buy without ads. I think it's dumb soccer jerseys are sold with ads on them. I laugh when I see female Philadelphia Union fans where a jersey with BIMBO (Spanish food company pronounce "beem-bo") on the front.

So Brooks Laich is now officially engaged to his celebrity girlfriend. Although I really have no idea who this woman is.

After a quick skim of her Wiki page, seems she's mostly famous for winning Dancing with the Stars twice, previously dating Ryan Seacrest, and wearing blackface to a Halloween party. Neat. It's funny, I read an article called something like "Who IS Julianne Hough's hockey star fiancé?" And I was like, who the fuck is Julianne Hough.

File this under "posts that have nothing to do with hockey".

Also, fuck jersey ads. There's no way they'll turn NHL sweaters into NASCAR cars.

Definitely wearing on me that it's the off-season when I get excited (and thinking about going) about the following....

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that the Friday, September 25 Flyers vs. New York Islanders pre-season game at the Wells Fargo Center will now begin at 6 p.m. The change in time is to accommodate the City of Philadelphia’s preparations for the Pope’s visit and to make it easier for fans to navigate travel restrictions.

In addition, all fans in attendance at the September 25 game will enjoy free hot dogs, pretzels, and soft drinks, as well as 50% off all Flyers merchandise at the Fan Zone.

Maybe the Pope can bless the team while there. You could probably use it. :D

Takes A LOT of Zimas to blow a .30.

Fun story: One time during the offseason he was rehabbing a shoulder injury so my dad and I invited him to come out and play a few games in our beer league just to get moving again. He came, and was like, "Matt, we're gonna get you a few goals tonight. Anytime I've got the puck, just go to the net with your stick on the ice and I'll take care of the rest." I scored like 6 goals that night, but actually didn't. He would just BANK PUCKS IN OFF MY STICK. It didn't matter where he or I was on the ice - he would just make it happen.

It's amazing the skill level of even someone who was "just" a career minor leaguer.

Edit: damnit

Impressive to have a goal per wife average

I've got to make sure they all feel equally loved.

Plus, they all looked so sexy up there in the stands in their matching hair bonnets.

In other news, this Quebec news is still kinda bumming me out. I like wearing Nords gear and still being identified as an Avs fan. <tear rolls down cheek>

But but I thought NHLers were all just "good guys" who just "work hard" and aren't like those "thugs" in the NFL :rolleyes
