Last night as the 2nd drunkest I've probably ever been. Right behind the 2013 Cup which resulted in me bleeding out of my face onto my white Dave Bolland sweater. Things got beyond crazy. I'm not sure where Mike (bonzo) was, if he was downtown, but it was absolute mayhem. This city has embraced the Blackhawks like none other. EVERYONE is a Hawks fan.

This is 100% a true story (according to my friends, I don't remember), but I apparently made out with some hot chick at the bar, and then her hot mom almost right after. I don't remember this at all, but it has been told to me by multiple different people last night that I was dancing with some girl, and then made out with her, then went over to her mom, and started making out with her. Go Hawks.

Man, is this what happens when Zimas get popped?

Well, in fairness if we did away with the cap Chicago would be keeping the band together (sans Kimmo for obvious reasons anyhow) and not trying to shed guys like Sharpe, Seabrook and Desjardans. I really do hate salary caps in any sport. :lol

:lol Can't say I didn't warn you, I learned what a clusterfuck championship parades/rallies are when the Yanks won in 1996 - mine may have been worse because it was bundle up cold in early November of a really cold winter.

Smart ass.

This is pretty spot on for the Hawks.
http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/e...ns-tough-task/

Gonna be interesting to see what they do. As for the cap? I hate them being a Wings fan. From 2001 through the deadline of 2004 Wings got Hasek, Robitaille, Hull, Cujo, Schneider, Hatcher, Ray Whitney and Robert Lang either via free agency or trade. Wings would never have lost Hossa in 2009 probably either if there was no cap. BUT Wings doing all those moves only got them one Cup over 3 years and in 03 and 04 only won one playoff series. The cap forced them to be smarter, so I am ok with that. The last few years it would have been nice to make some crazy move and get some big name talent but...whatever.

Regarding the wiseass crack - I try! :lol

Nice article, thank you, I had not seen that.

As for caps, UGH. There was a year (before the cap) that St. Louis had the best team in the NHL when they were on their game. That starting 5 had to intimidate anyone: Gretzky in center, Hull on right wing, Matteau on left wing, Pronger and MacInnis playing D and Fuhr in the net. Add in their other guys like MacTavish, Hawerchuck, Creighton, Noonan, Corson, Coutrnall, Tikkanen, Cravchuck, Vasilevski, Sutton and Norton and you had one hell of a deep team - and coached by Keenan no less! No idea how they did not knock off Detroit (admittedly a great team), they were fun to watch nonetheless.

Point being, in this damn cap era you will never see a team with that collection of gamers and HOFer's again.

Yzerman is amazing but with the collection of talent the Blues should have never even been in that game 7 double OT spot in the first place.

Re: The NHL Thread
 
There was a kid in my neighborhood growing up who swore up and down that Esa Tikkanen was his uncle. He always talked about how Esa sent him all this cool memorabilia, although he'd never bring it out to show us. Oh, and he never relented that Tikkanen, next to only the Great One himself, was the primary contributor to Edmonton's success. And any team he played for thereafter, actually.

So yeah, I giggle whenever I think of Esa Effing Tikkanen.

TMoore4075 06-17-2015 03:44 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
I dunno. Wings were up 2-0 on the series so I could argue it should never have gotten to game 7 double ot the other way. Plus Wings team wasn't too bad either. Yzerman, Fedorov, Larionov, Kozlov, Lidstrom, Coffey, Fetisov, Konstantinov, Keith Primeau, Dino Ciccarelli...trying to think if I'm missing any other stars. Wings won 62 games that year.

Edit: Also just realized how much the Blues were trying to do what the Rangers did by getting all the old Oilers on their team.

I'd laugh too, apparently he neglects to recall that guys like Messier, Kurri, Fuhr, Coffey, Anderson and company had a lot more to do with that dynasty.

Edit: Typo on Coffey's name!

I watched this a while back and literally cried when he started skating her around the ice. The pure joy on her face.

The Blackhawks do a ton of this stuff, and it's cool to see. I'm sure other teams do it as well, maybe just not as visible.

This one of Toews buying Girl Scout cookies is one of my faves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P74nS_6ElIU

Those are both great, it is stuff like that that leaves a lifelong impact on kids. So nice to see good people when so many athlete's are complete jackasses or downright felons.

When I was young I was at Yankee Stadium watching BP, this was when you could actually go down to the good seats and lean over to try and catch balls. Gary Ward wandered over and started signing autographs, I had squat for him to sign because I left my program up with my parents. I had a pen in my pocket and asked if he would sign my hand and he said 'no, hold on' - he then walked away from all of us (I was devastated) then grabbed the nearest ball came back over handed it to me and signed it. That was 30+ years ago and I still recall it vividly and I think more of Ward than I do some of the big names who couldn't be bothered to sign or mingle with we fans.
