When Kunitz doesn't make it people will explode. Also Subban.

I think there might be more uproar is Kunitz does make it. Very polarizing at the moment. As for Subban, he's gotta be on the team...

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Yeah, I agree that I'm probably in the minority of people thinking Kunitz should be on the team.

LeBrun saying Subban WILL be on the team. Not particularly surprising, but disappointing.

bonzo48280 01-07-2014 11:09 AM

Seabrook won't be on the team. Calling it.

You're welcome, enjoy your bronze medal.

Not sure why people are shocked at the Bouwmeester pick. Him and Pietrangelo have been great together, and should carry that to Sochi. To me, the only real head scratchers are Hamhuis, and Marleau (and to a lesser extent Smith).

Vlasic is one of the most underrated in terms of shut-down ability. I said it before, but I've never been even a remote fan of Bouwmeester... but he's having a great year in STL. Seems almost completely different than his FLA/CGY days. Better in his own zone (although still not overly physical), and less timid on offense. He's also one of the best skaters in the NHL, period. He's already got fantastic chemistry with Pietrangelo, and I wonder if that's part of it.

The Carter inclusion is probably one of the biggest surprises for me.

Which is dumb because he has been on fire as of late. His bad start can be attributed to his injury. In the last 3 years only Malkin has more points than Giroux

I'm a little surprised about Giroux being left off. But again, you look at the roster and who would you replace? Maybe Benn or Carter. But both of those guys are a little bigger and more physical than OMGCG.

He's crushed about it to. You can hear it in his voice with the post morning skate interview he did.

Definitely not Benn, but yeah, he's Canada's "Yandle/Ryan". I think him off is more surprising than St. Louis.

While I agree with this second statement, the first I don't. The US team is a very good hockey team. The Canadians clearly have the best group of forwards.

You are right that not many US forwards would make the Canadian squad, basically just Parise and Kane. BUT, even with that said, the talent gap isn't nearly as wide as you're making it out to be. Yes, the Canadian group of forwards is clearly the best. Only the Russian's top 6 can really rival it (I'm not a fan of Geno or Ovie though so...that's a moot point in my eyes).

From top to bottom though, the US has a great squad, and that's all that matters. It should be a LOT of fun to watch. There will be some incredible hockey, and that's what we should focus on. Let's root on our American boys and enjoy the greatest game in the world being played at it's absolute highest level instead of basically handing the gold to the Canadians before a puck is even dropped just because they have the most talented group of forwards...because I can tell ya...that's not how it works.

Comparing 80 to now, that Russia team was so far ahead of everyone else in the field it wasn't funny. Canada isn't that far ahead of everyone this year.

At this point even Parise couldn't crack that roster. Obviously when you are talking about so many great players, you are rigth the gap isn't that wide. But the cumulative effect of Canada's group of forwards vs. the USA's group is pretty significant IMO.

Ok, agreed. US certainly has a really good team and of course when it comes down to a single game, anything can happen. But I wouldn't expect the US to win more than 2 or 3 out of 10 games against Canada's team. That's why I say it's a significant mismatch.

No I agree that's what I'm saying. If that US team could beat that Russian team, anyone can beat anyone now. I like what the US has been doing the last two Olympics. Taking note from Herb Brooks, trying to put the best team together, not just the best players. What was the line from the movie?

Eh, confirmation bias at work. Just because it worked that time, doesn't mean it is a reliable strategy. All of these players are incredibly determined to win Gold. Obviously you have to put a well-rounded team together but in the end you need to maximize your talent.

It's not a reliable strategy to put the best team together? I am confused at this logic

EDIT: here's all the dates, first link is just a few with the WH ticketing page linked.

http://antsmarching.org/forum/showpo...&postcount=963

Are these reliable? Some interesting dates. No Alpine? WPB on my birthday. Mother in Law is nearby. Have always said we have a babysitter to hit that tour stop.

As for hockey, Bernier not sharp at all tonight. Isles with 2 gimmes. 2 more points for Okposo (on the non gimme goals). JT closing in on Kane. Liking this team right now. Sucks that Nabby went down again as we only started played well when he came back. Hopefully, it is not too long this time.

No Alpine pisses me right off

just weird, to me and I've never been there. Got tix once to make the trek but then didn't and sold them. Wife was there in '02 right before we met (she is from Chicago). It's like something is missing.

Spac is weekend of wife's birthday so we might finally go there for the first time.

According to announcers, they took away Okposo's A now and given it to JT. 8 points in last 2 games. Someone is on fire.

yes JT = John Tavares. Nice back to back wins. Onto Colorado for Friday. That should be another win :cool

Ok, that's what I thought. What do you mean by "A"? As in on his sweater? Did JT lose the "C"?

And yes, all of a sudden I'm looking very much forward to the NYI game. :thumbsup

:D . No I had posted Okposo had 2 points again already tonight but then they took the Assist away from him and gave it to Tavares.

Well, you should always look foward to the NYI game. It usually means a win.

:lol gotcha. I was like "what in the world is Sal talking about?"

I'm a huge Tavares fan, and also like some of the young D on the Isles. Looking forward to the game :thumbsup

Big two points for the Flyers, but I can't believe they let NJ get a point.

^ I was at hockey so didn't see it live. I woulda been pissed more than I am had I seen it live.

That said, yes bad back door coverage, but hell of a pass by Zidlicky too. I'll give them some credit on that one.

Really starting to get frustrated at the lack of scoring from the Kings. And it's not that they aren't taking shots.

HallowBillies7 01-07-2014 11:49 PM

Just saw the replay of Hiller robbing Marchand, what a save!

And the Bruins are AWFUL during the 2nd period in every game it seems, I don't get it at all.

I wish the Olympics were here for no other reason than not having to listen to 30 million people question the decisions of the Hockey Canada brass. I just want to punch some people right now.



Oh, and the Oilers still suck ass in case anyone was wondering.

So I'm just sitting here playing XBox and my phone rings. It was Mike Haviland, head coach of the Hershey Bears and former head coach of the AC Boardwalk Bullies. He was also on the bench for the Blackhawks when they won the Cup in 2010 and talked about how coaching guys like Toews, Kane, Hossa, Keith, etc has given him a lot to work with in his second stint in the AHL. We had a great conversation about a story I plan on doing in a couple weeks since he hasn't been in AC since 2005. Definitely took me by surprise because I didn't know if I was gonna have access to him or not.

Not a big surprise here though, at least not to me. For all the reasons he mentions, as well as the fact that Canadian markets will give you at least a few, not all 7 are on that list.

sadly, absolutely no one was wondering.
What I do wonder is when certain non-terrible players start grumbling about a trade?

I have interviews lined up today with a couple Albany Devils and the coach for the rest of my story. The Haviland stuff is for next month when he comes in a second time. These types of stories hit home for me and I'm enjoying working on them.

That was great :thumbsup

Also loved one of the "Best of the Rest" moments when Phaneuf goes to scrap with Ruutu and falls on his ass before Ruutu even gets his gloves off. And of course Ruutu just skates away :lol
