Yeah since they are going to have it regardless, I'm glad they try different things to freshen it up. Now when will this get old? I dunno, I'm sure it will though.

Agreed, it was a devastating hit on a budding star but there was absolutely nothing dirty about it at all.

The NHL really needs to help fund some of this research and development, but getting there will be a LONG and difficult road. As soon as they start funding, it will basically be admitting that hockey causes concussions, which they have yet to do.

Honestly, it all comes down to physiology. The human brain responds MUCH worse to side to side trauma than front to back - aka you are better off getting smacked in the face or back of the skull than the side of your head. Not sure how much a hockey helmet can change that to be honest without just adding additional padding that the players will just bitch about anyhow!

No, I bet they sell a decent amount of alternates, lord knows I see enough every game I watch. Heck I have 4 Hawks 'alternates' - the standard black one they almost never wear (Kane), the green one with a shamrock on front that they wear on St. Patrick's day (Hossa), a camouflage one they wore for pregame skate on veterans day (Toews) and a winter classic one (Hjarlmasson). Need to replace my standard white Seabrook though since a friend burned the damn thing with a cigarette!

Edit: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/adidas-...152149551.html

Not a big fan of Adidas jersey's at all, too thin for me - the material that is. More like a long sleeve soccer jersey than a hockey sweater. I play without upper body pads so I want a nice thick warm one! In truth, to me nothing will ever beat out the old CCM ones - they were made to play in all conditions and took one helluva beating on and off the ice. I think if i played half a dozen games in an adidas one I would either ruin it (stick to jersey or whatever) or freeze to death!

Simmonds is a 2 point per game guy at this point. He is clearly deserving.

Agreed, reminds me of the idiotic MLB system where every team has to be represented - even if the AL or NL manager has to pick some starting pitcher with a 7.44 ERA just to represent a scrub team!

Agreed but if they can get a tighter fit that does not cause the skull to move as much it would be beneficial. Maybe take a page out of the US military and use a better strapping system to lessen potential movement on impact.

from all that i've read and researched, which is a lot, there's really nothing that can help with limiting brain movement within the skull (other than fewer and less speedy collisions)

again, not a neurologist here :lol but i'm very confident it that assessment. the brain is going to move and collide with the skull no matter what when there is a collision and not much can be done to mitigate that.

No, I am not a neurologist either but I do know the military is constantly trying to help lessen impacts to helmets. To be honest I should have clarified that I was referring to airborne headgear though since they take more impacts to the head than standard infantry. See the below link and the proposed solution 1: http://www.combatreform.org/chinstrap.htm that includes a 4 point strap system.

It is not all that long and the only really relevant part is pertaining to heargear, chinstraps in particular. NHL has only a 2 point system for the helmet to square away the chin to prevent unnecessary head motion. US military is just as bad to be honest (even airborne) working with a 2 point strap system - and people are actually trying to kill them. Hell, if the pre-WW2 German airborne was using a 3 point system maybe we should get with the times - 70+ years later! In Australia their airborne and SAS use 4 point systems. The difference in price between a 2 and 4 point system - 13 bucks a strap, pretty sure that is a worthwhile investment for a player and perhaps the NHL should look into studies done by these institutions, particularly studies done by military medics, nurses and doctors!

I'm actually much more intrigued about tonight's game than Friday's. I do like how the Caps are quietly going about their business this year. One probably wouldn't realize it but the Caps are currently on the longest winning streak league wide. Not that that matters really and it could end tonight as the Pens are hot as well, but they have seemed almost kind of under the radar so far this season. Considering how much the hockey world talks about Columbus and Pittsburgh.

I said it the other day and I'll say it again, I sincerely hope to draw the Jackets in round one. I don't care what spot the Caps finish in, I just want Columbus.

Re: The NHL Thread (lolcaps)
 
Alright Wings I like how you rebounded from a crap first period but you still lost. If you are going to come back like that...win the game. 1 point isn't going to do anything so pick what you are going to do. Lose and miss the playoffs or win and get back into the playoff race. OTL's hurt both of those scenarios.

That would be a great series to watch.

The Caps are more quiet this year. They haven't had one of those set-the-world-on-fire streaks like Columbus, and their stars' points totals are a little down. Backstrom is 29th with 34 points, and Ovie's right behind him with 33 points. But they are getting their job done and are in the hunt. In the playoffs, they will be their usual threat (to exit by the second round. ;) I kid, I kid.)

You probably didn't mean it as such, but the bolded sentence is kind of what I'm talking about. The Caps aren't really "in the hunt", they are far superior than that. They've got the 4th best record in the league. There's no question they'll be near the top of the league at season's end and it wouldn't exactly surprise me if they won the division. But they haven't commanded the attention they have over the last several years.

It's kind of refreshing seeing so many contributions coming from all throughout the lineup. Nick and Ovie don't have to do all the scoring, even Kuznetsov started ice cold but it never slowed the team down. Hopefully Oshie isn't out long as he's been the team's most important player this year.

I dunno. I always get optimistic around this time of year. There's just so many good teams clustered together in that division. It's totally possible they get beat by the Pens in the playoffs again.

Have the Lions had legitimate Super Bowl contending teams lately? I know they've been better the last few years but I don't follow the NFL closely at all. I'm also not saying the Caps have had a legit Cup contender every year since Ovie came on board but they probably should've gotten much closer than they have at this point.

Last year I remember feeling especially optimistic. I don't realistically expect the Caps to win the Cup but I mean they might and they certainly seem to have a team good enough to do it again. And I mean I can't be a martyr all the time. Eventually I have to keep the faith that the team will get it done.

You are like this every year going in, and how can anyone blame you? The Caps have been so strong on several different occasions that anyone would believe it was finally their year. You can't tell me that you were not as optimistic in 2015 as you were last year. I remember your reaction to the Rangers coming back in that series haha

From a Rangers fan point of view: Last year was really the only year I was not optimistic in a while going into the playoffs. 2014 shocked me with the run, but 2015 I felt we were strong enough to make a return trip. Last year the team looked about as good as they performed in the playoffs. So I was not surprised or distressed about it at all.

This year, I love the youth and speed we have. I am far more optimistic about what NYR has to bring to the table. Obviously a lot can change before the post-season, but with the right match-ups, I see no reason the Rangers can't make another run.

**Of course the last sentence can be said about pretty much the top 5-6 teams in the MET this year**

I also wanted to take a minute to acknowledge the passing of new york's Steven Mcdonald yesterday. For those of you who don't know about him, he was a former NYC Policeman that became paralyzed and became a staple at MSG (as a die hard Rangers fan). At the end of each season he awarded the Steven McDonald "Extra Effort" Award to the Ranger that the fans felt gave the most to the team over the regular season. He meant a lot to the community in NYC and at the Garden and will be missed by all who knew of his story. RIP!

clean is the key word. and i know it's super hard, as a player, to know in real time if a hit is clean or not, so the natural reaction is to respond no matter what.

but to answer your question, no, i really wouldn't care. what should happen in that instance is everyone clear the fuck away & go back to your bench so the player can get medical attention. Even after a dirty hit, guys in the NFL seem to be able to keep it together most of the time.

imagine if this hit happened in an NHL game: you'd have gloves and helmets littering the ice and a 20 minute delay because of the fighting that would ensue...but instead, in the NFL, the refs handled it accordingly and the team went back to playing ball and making it really hurt where it counted, on the scoreboard.

i want the culture to change.

Absolutely I agree, a division game would have me far more excited - specially in a stacked division like the Metro. That said Caps/Hawks games are usually great matches and it is always a blast to watch our teams try themselves against other top tier games - especially on a weekend so I can have a few beers during the game.

As for running under the radar, well they kind of did that to themselves by running away with the Presidents Trophy last season, tough to duplicate that season. Again though - as far as flying below the radar I do not think any team is doing a better job at that than the Wild who are only a point behind Chicago in the Central with 5 games in hand and a +38 goal differential.

Certain things are odd expressions almost exclusive to the NHL - aka a Gordie Howe hat trick. A couple weeks ago I watched a game with a buddy I grew up with and he does indeed know hockey - we played on ponds as kids together, went to Whalers games and watched every game we could on TV. He asked me to explain why the second period was considered a long change period. Thought he was kidding at first but then I realized he was genuinely curious so I explained it in a few seconds and it clicked right away.

Something different for you all. If you could pick one player who was on your team but they could not resign due to cap constraints who would it be?

Not sure for me but I am thinking maybe Ladd, Shaw or Teravainen.

This post made me look up the complete roster for the NY Rangers...which pointed me towards their date-of-births....which made me realize that there are only 4 players on the NY Rangers who are older than me....

Now I am sad.


Edit: There are seven on the Hawks that are older.

so you mean who does everyone want to cut form their team basically?

for me, Eric Fehr or Derrick Pouliot

i like Fehr, nothing against him, but he doesn't fit the system. and Pouliot is a joke at this point

I read it as if you could get back one player that left because of the cap, who would it be. Since he listed 3 players that are gone from the Hawks.

ahhh ok that makes more sense

i guess i'd have to say Marian Hossa, even though that was an eternity ago. He'd be lighting it up with Geno or Sid for sure. But i'm glad we have Kessel.

and there's no one recently because the Pens brought back their entire Cup roster sans Lovejoy and Bennett :lol

Yeah, that is exactly what I meant - guess I phrased it wrong or incorrectly. Regarding Teravainen not sure that was a cap issue as much as it was they needed to throw someone in to move Bickell.

Oh! I read that incorrectly too!

For me it would be:

Anton Stralman, Brian Boyle, Carl Hagelin or Ryan Callahan.

If I had to pick one: Anton Stralman. Last year I would have said Hag's because we lost a lot of speed by not signing him. However, we gained a lot of speed back this season!

Hossa is probably mine for the Wings and that was almost an eternity ago. Wings haven't really lost any guys on D that I'd say god they have to have him back. Because D is where they are so bad off. Hossa because Franzen being hurt the last few years and Hossa's still going. Of course didn't know that back in 09.

Agreed on Saad - guess it kind of ticked me off that a month after winning the cup he bolted for more money without giving Chicago much time to work with him. I do not blame him for wanting to get paid but the timing and his agent barely talking to the Hawks pissed me off.

Yeah, Byfuglien would have been a nice keep as well but after the 2010 season a LOT had to change for the Hawks and he and Ladd were the big chips on the chopping block.

For both of you who mentioned Hossa - may I say thank your teams (3 cups later) for not keeping him! :)

First - that's not really what happened. Bowman had to make the move due. Columbus had the offer on the table and Bowman had to pull the trigger. I don't remember the exact RFA implications in regards to timing, but I know they were on the clock. Couldn't really be a wait and see thing.

And for Big Buff - wasn't that the point of your question though? They had to change after 2010 because of the salary cap, and I wish they didn't have to lose him for that reason...

To the first, yeah - I am unsure of the details myself - sort of tough to find too. Just ticked me off because I thought we could have retained him, hope we got some drafts or prospects out of it plus, guess I cannot complain too much since losing him allowed us to get Panarin!

As for big Buf - yeah, agreed. Salary cap sucks.

Anisimov was the big win in that trade. We had Marko Dano, but then traded him for Ladd last year...so it really ended up being Saad for Anisimov and a 4th round pick.

And Delbarton is my local prep-school. I knew many people who attended Delbarton.

The Delbarton vs. Seton Hall games at Mennen Arena are always crazy and sell out. Many of the New Jersey Devils attend the game every year.

Edit: I should also note that I have had the displeasure of playing Delbarton when I was in high school. It felt to us like we were playing a professional team...

Tyson Barrie is everything that is wrong with the NHL.

But seriously, if he's not getting you points he won't get you anything else (blocks, hits, etc). He plays on the worst team in the league, a team that has troubles scoring more than 1 goal a game. I think he's a -21 right now. If there's someone better out there for you to grab...

I'll be keeping him for now. We'll see.

So my Wings got a total of 6 points out of a possible 14 points on the 7 game road trip. They aren't done since the Atlantic blows but they sure didn't help themselves.
