  1. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    CHarlie Lindgren is making waves.
  2. CFL in Halifax coming soon?

    I hope the CFL gets another team. It would inject some much needed new life in a league that has only had the same 8-9 teams since forever.
  3. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    He had a lifelong dream to become a pilot, but only got his licence a few years ago because his MLB contract wouldn't allow it while he was still playing. Within only a few years, dead from crashing his plane. Very sad and unfortunate circumstances.

    Has anybody received a follow from Zack Boychuk on Twitter? I don't know if there's some sort of glitch that got to his account, but he's been following me, than unfollowing, then following & unfollowing me back multiple times.

    The Halak trade villiainized Pierre Gauthier though, just like the Subban trade villainized Marc Bergevin.

    Allright, this I agree with. I'm glad to hear this cause it got discouraging how the media is insulting people's intelligence with all the overhype BS. I also understand that slumps happen because players are human and no one plays peak hockey every single night and no one steals every single game. Not even the great Jaroslav Halak. There are issues that go beyond just goaltending. It's a bunch of factors that piled up that lead to the Habs decline today. Is Price a top 10 goalie? Yeah, I'll agree with this one too. But until he reaches a Cup Final, he's number 10, though. Yes. Bergevin needs to be fired ASAP. Carey Price can be okay, if his team is playing exceptionally well. That's his style. Me I still miss Jaro's ability to crank it up to 100 and stop everything like a madman. But even he needs a good team because no one can play light that every night and the Habs needed to give Halak some room to breathe at the time, so that he could save his best games for when it counts. I remember Jaro running out of gas versus Philly during that year. When Halak stops playing on that level, the team goes down with him. Maybe it's a matter of preference. They each have their own style. For this point, we'll have to agree to disagree.

    I'm sorry, but I think Carey Price should be traded. I think they gave him too much for too long, combined with his injury and his inability to steal games when the team needed it, even while under only moderate pressure. A lot of Montreal fans have begun expressing frustrations with the overhype of Carey being the best goalie in the World, when he's making 10 mil for 8 years, but backup is playing better. Even at his peak, Price always needs a lot of help and always crumbles under pressure. I wish Halak was still available. Shoulda never traded him. Fans miss his ability to steal games and playoff series all to himself.

    Congratulations Houston!!
  9. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    I just tuned in and Astros are leading 2-0 bottom of the 1st. That's a good start. Edit: 5-0 Astros, top of the 2nd.

    Some forgot to remind Houston that they were innings away from winning their 1st ever World Series.
  11. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    It's nice to see the Habs playing like the Habs again.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    The perforated numbers are lighter than the regular numbers, so the players can move quicker.
  13. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Vegas played Colorado with a 3rd or 4th string goalie tonight. Guess who won the game 7-0...
  14. NHL 2017-18

    And paired versus the classic looking Avs in maroon/burgundy/sedona red (whatever the correct name is), it's such a beautiful non-O6 matchup...
  15. NHL 2017-18

    This is totally true. The throwbacks were a fun nostalgia phase. But the new ones are a fresh, modernized take on the retros while maintaining regard of their team history. The new shades look brillant.
  16. NHL 2017-18

    Both new Oilers jerseys look okay. But the new Oilers road looks a little too much like the Sabres road.
  17. NHL 2017-18

    I think the Oilers should drop the navy yokes on the road white only.
  18. NHL 2017-18

    Fair enough.

    I hate sports.
  20. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    That Astros pitcher blew it.
  21. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Houston, we have a problem..
  22. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Vegas is 7-1-0 That early season streak was no fluke. They got something going here.
  23. NHL 2017-18

    Exactly. Which is burgundy.
  24. NHL 2017-18

    Coyotes are burgundy.
  25. NHL 2017-18

    I hadn't noticed this until now. But there aren't that many primarily black or navy blue teams left. There are: - 3 teams in navy blue jerseys: (Buffalo, Columbus, Winnipeg) and if the Ducks go orange as rumored... - 3 teams in black jerseys (Boston, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, 2 of which who use black and yellow) As much as the League sometimes gets harshly criticized for bad templates and bad aesthetic decisions, I gotta give them credit points for adding more versatility. We got a yellow team, a silver team, a light green team, and a dark green team. Keep it that way!
