    Just wait until all the Stadium Series games start. Then it will get really old.

    Might have been due to all the snow but this Winter Classic was a pretty poor game.

    Better getcher games together in 2014 kids. Looks like Papa's runnin' away with this one :P


    It doesn't matter if you're #1 after regular season. It's the playoffs that bring trophies. You of all people should know this as a Nucks fan :D :D :D

    Yes, this is true, for hockey players and teams in the NHL. But this is a regular season hockey pool we're in. There is no benefit to winning or losing it other than winning it. We don't get any free hat tricks in the playoffs if we do well here akin to the home ice advantage teams can earn. Thus, this competition is only about this competition. Undermine it at your pleasure since you're being such a bottom feeder but I still take great pleasure in my success as I usually get my ass kicked here :lol:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    I'm not undermining your success, if anything, I'm happy for you since I remember your endless 2/3 streaks in the past seasons. I'm just saying that nobody remembers who was first after regular season in our group for the last two seasons ;)

    Not entirely thrilled with the US roster for Sochi. Also, Brian Burke isn't winning many friends with his comments about some of the players that were left off the roster.

    Ranked 5th due to tie-breaker status but a couple more 2 or 3 back to back runs and Kyoko and I could be off to Vegas for the 2K14 NHL Awards Ceremony... Vegas Baby!! :headbanger:

    I try to stay away from trash talking as much as possible since I don't know any of you personally and people tend to take things too serious sometimes.

    And now that we're in a new year, don't you dare start collecting your favourable thing - string of 2/3s :D :D :D

    Pretty sad not to be facing Sweden for gold tomorrow but two top centres losing cool and ice time combined with an impotent powerplay gave the determined Finns all the edge they needed. Gonna be cheering big for blue and white versus their historical adversaries tomorrow but the Swedes look pretty unbeatable this year. Should be a great tilt.

    Got a HT last night to keep pace with the 5 at the top but the Laffs are getting their butts handed to them by the Rangers so I'm just hoping the rest of them went with the favourite as well :|

    we can only take solace in the fact we placed higher than the yanks but this does still hurt. Hopefully Toronto/Montreal next year will allow us some shred of dignity. cause honestly if we don't medal at home i think the head of hockey Canada's junior team selection will be lynched

    I didn't even remember to PVR the bronze game this morning (good thing or reading this post would've been spoiler lol) which I guess says something about typical canadian attitude when it comes to this tournament. Gold or nothing. That and I just had a feeling they'd bring even less urgency to the consolation game than they did to the semi-final and didn't want to watch another display of that from our side. Pretty certain Russia was gonna have their way with us. Curious what the score/tale of the tape was. Guess I'll go have a look at tsn.com while watching Finland vs. Sweden.

    Really who do they have as an option outside of that though? Crawford? Brodeur and a time machine? Fleury? Smitty probably won't play too much, if at all. Can't imagine how far out of net he will get if he does play though. No trapezoid rule. Yikes.

    Speaking of Old Boys' Club, Sandis Ozolinsh on Team Latvia! Also, the Czech roster. :lol:

    Sweden looks good. Finland has outstanding goaltending. Going to be a fun tournament. Team Russia is excited: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QrHBUVEEkk

    The HT Challenge is saving everyone's picks for that game and using those choices for whenever the makeup game is. If you get that one right, it will be credited as part of yesterday's picks.

    If Anze's brother made it I would have had two :lol:

    Kate--hope Mike Smith plays well!!

    I'm not a huge Luongo fan by any means but will chime in on his defense here. Not sure why he gets so much hate. He's playing quite well this year and has improved positionally by leaps and bounds over 4 years ago when he was between the pipes the last time we won Olympic Gold. Why the hate? Because Canucks management threw him into the hottest, brightest spotlight ever by making him captain a few years back? Because he didn't bring home Stanley when our scoring dried up and had a couple meltdowns in the final round? Are Price or Smith more proven than he is? I firmly believe that, if the team plays strongly in front of him, we'll go deep. If you expect him to win it on his own and stand on his head versus the rest of the world's best then, no, ain't gonna happen.

    Also, keep in mind that he got run over pretty bad in LA after returning from injury and had to have an MRI the next day. Even though results weren't too bad, conditioning could keep him from being the go-to in Sochi.

    As for Kate, I'm curious. If Smitty were our guy for the tourney, would she pull for him to do well against the US or would patriotism win out over fangirldom?
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    She sure as shit ain't rooting for a team with Dustin Brown on it. :lol: I'll let her respond as to which team she prefers but I know it isn't Team USA. Especially after Yandle was left off the roster and the comments by Brian Burke.

    Did Burke burn Yandle too? I only heard about the Bobby Ryan comments

    I am not really a big US patriot, having not grown up here. If there were a team for Mexico (:lol:) I'd root for them. And as Mooyagi said, the way Yandle was snubbed and all the shit Burke said (haha karma bit him in the ass last night when the Yotes kicked the Flames ass, 6-0) about him "anytime he's on the ice I expect a disaster", etc makes me not want to root for team USA. Having Dustin Brown on the team just completely seals that for me. Glad I don't have to be conflicted now :lol:

    I will root for the teams with my boys on them. For Canada, I will root when/if Smitty plays. Though I kinda want Finland or Sweden to win

    He was without a club for a while now but now he's playing in ECHL for Kings' lower tier minions. There was quite a debate (mostly between hockey fans) here wheather Anze's brother will be picked for olympic team since their father is the manager.

    And what's up with team Canada? No Giroux, MSL, Crawford...

    Giroux had a real weak start to the season, St. Louis is a head-scratcher to most of us but the guess is that he's just not as big as they were looking for and is probably on the bubble as Stamkos' fill-in if health keeps him out. My only guess with Crawford is that he has played on very strong teams and not had to be the guy standing on his head to keep them in their championships while Price and Smith have pretty much carried their teams on their backs from time to time. Not sure.

    One could argue that Canada is a strong team and as such doesn't need goalie to carry them on. What I mean is that Canada has enough star skaters and shouldn't rely only on a goalie to carry them to the gold. Unlike my team, which needs a strong goalie who can muster 50 saves against Russia and USA. And if everything comes together perfectly, we can upset Slovakia. I'm so stoked about olympics!!! Hockey was always a highlight of the games for me, but this year it's special since we have our team there as well. There was always highlight on ski jumping and alpine skiing in my country during olympics but this year with only one in-form ski jumper and the only good alpine skier being severely out of form, the highlight for the whole nation I assume will be hockey tournament.

    If that's a wall of text, someone needs to introduce you to Laura or me back in the days I lived here during my night shifts :lol:

    Oh and, btw... What the hell?!?! Congrats on your HT last night but who the F is Ondrej Palat and how did you know he would score? He's not even in the list of chooseable players in my weekly 10 player pool :?

    Well done! :cheers:

    I was more sure about him scoring a goal than Sharks not getting 40 shots ;) I almost forgot the good feeling you have when you get back to back HTs.

    And yea, raeding my "wall o' text" at home it really doesn't seem much, but I tell you that looked a lot more on my tiny laptop at work. And yea, I remember those days you mentioned. When times were simpler and the only worry was "Is Andy pulling our leg with this cruise or what?"

    You must feel even better now! Nice work!

    If only you and Mooyagi had guided my picks the past few days, I'd be in first overall right now :lol:

    Wow, all three games were tight. I had some doubts about the Nucks but I'm glad they ended Blues' streak.

    As pleased and pleasantly surprised as I was with the win, my shock at the fact that you picked that win was ten fold :shock: :lol:

    Ya gotta share the thought process behind that one for me sir!
