    Too funny GIF, but could have gotten worse imo. DUSTIN BROWN's missed bodycheck. He almost knocks
    himself down hitting the plexi full head.

    @Heathleysucks. Sorry but I dont grasp the Craig Anderson one...

    I was referring to Anderson's rough night in goal in which at least a couple
    of pucks trickled through his legs...not on purpose, obviously.

    This might be one of the craziest goals ever, and certainly the most bizarre OT goal I can ever remember seeing.....Buffalo beat Phoenix on just a weird, weird circumstance. Video here:

    That is beyond weird.
    OK, a hypothetical question....what if the puck fell all the way down Smith's pants
    so it would no longer be seen by anyone, including the refs?
    Shouldn't the play be blown down because of the 'lost sight of the puck' rule?
    Not sure if it applies here because apparently the puck could still be seen.

    That is pretty crazy haha! I don't get why Smith makes the "im gonna make the big glove save" motion, you can clearly see he has no idea what's going on!

    It's also quite unfair for Smith, who's a great goalie and one of the main reasons why the Yotes are not even lower in the standings...

    What's the general thought on all these 'stadium series' and outdoor games this season? Good or bad? Personally I don't like it. Having an NHL Winter Classic and the Heritage for the Canadians is surely enough. If outdoor hockey is so popular in North America why isn't there a league yet? (I'll probably regret putting that :P)

    I'm fine with it since my hometown Caps get next year's Winter Classic. But really, I think that they're TOO prevalent nowadays-it ruins the value, you know? And regarding your last point, I forget what team specifically, but a Federal Hockey League (the lowest tier of pro hockey) played all their home games outdoors last season. It ended up ruining them financially, if I have my facts straight.

    Yeah I 100% agree it ruins the value of it. 1 or 2 fine but soon it feels like it'll be every team having an outdoor game at once.

    I love that Federal League fact haha! Thanks

    I too, think the novelty has long worn off...but it is a huge cash cow for the NHL.
    Look at this one coming up...100,000 in Ann Arbour.
    You can't fit 100,000 in the Joe.
    With the accompanying merchandising and other ancillary revenue streams, the
    NHL could stand to make tens of millions on this one game.
    But really...once in a lifetime IS enough!
    How many of those 100,000 plus fans are actually going to get a decent view
    of the game from their vantage points?
    It's like the NCAA having Final Four tournaments in big dome stadiums...
    the game is so far away from those in the cheap seats it's becomes a rumour.
    And then there is the weather...I suppose it's no different than freezing your
    arse off for three and a half hours watching a Green Bay-Chicago Bears playoff game
    but the point is, you're STILL freezing your arse off for the better part of three hours.
    And you probably paid mucho dinero for the privilege.

    I always think about the vierw points. Some of them must be so bad and probably cost 2/3x as much as usual. But yeah I imagine they do make some serious money on these games.

    At least with Nationals Park, the host of the 2015 Classic, it was designed so that every seat has a viewpoint. Here's a picture of it: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...sco_Giants.jpg

    As an American, I'm chalking his exclusion up to a very confusing roster selection process by Team USA management. Still am a bit mad about the roster.

    Bobby Ryan was not only angry at being excluded he was furious
    at his former GM Brian Burke for essentially dissing him publicly.
    "Bobby Ryan can't even spell intense"...yeah.
    Hey Burkey, can YOU spell C-L-A-S-S?

    NHL Hey, anyone here?

    Hey guys! I see some debates are going on afterall. I'm currently looking at Red Wings vs NY Rangers game. Anyone else? It's been more than 45 minutes in the game and we're still waiting for any goal. King Henrik (Lundqvist) is in great form yet again, but so is Jimmy Howard...

    Btw, anyone familiar with following website focusing on PP at National Hockey League?

    Hi Ben, welcome to IHF!

    Great game so far......Rangers lead 1-0 on a fluke Zuccarello goal that took a couple of weird bounces. Both Howard & Lundqvist have been magnificent. Each team has roughly 40 shots with only one total goal so far. Exciting game.

    Looks like a good website; I will check it out.

    Thanks Marc. I cannot hide that I'm a Rangers fan, huh? Another game for Blueshirts is coming in few hours time... It seems they got into Vigneault's system finally. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. By the way, I added another hockey beauty on website mentioned above; ain't she gorgeus?

    The 2014 Stadium Series kicked off last night, following the Winter Classic.

    Anaheim defeated Los Angeles 3-0.

    Here are some highlights: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VSTaifHKoJY

    Speaking of the 2014 Winter Classic, it had the largest live crowd to ever watch an NHL game. Attendance was over 105,000.

    Original Six rivals Toronto and Detroit clashed, with the Maple Leafs defeating the Red Wings 3-2 in a shootout.

    Game 2 of the 2014 Stadium Series shifted to North America's most iconic sports venue.....Yankee Stadium. Major League Baseball's New York Yankees have existed since the dawn of the 1900's and have won 27 World Series championships.

    In the game, the New York Rangers routed the arch-rival New Jersey Devils by a 7-3 score, after rallying from 1-0 and 3-1 deficits. New Jersey had been 2-0-1 against the Rangers this season heading into the game.

    Here are nearly fifteen minutes of hi-def highlights: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=RMJWvH1n65Q

    I love European players (on my "Player Likability Ladder" they're behind only college alumni), but man is Pavelec horrid. Montoya was AMAZING against Chicago and basically willed them into the game...why not ride the hot hand?

    If I'm the Czechs at the Olympics, I'm starting someone else, probably Kovar.

    After horrible autumn, Devils are making pretty well! Though we melt in Yankee Stadium and last night didn't even score single goal.

    Olympians are performing nicely, Jagr top scorer at the moment and Elias waking up. Zidlicky top D-man, so 'bout glad.

    St. Louis Blues have acquired goaltender Ryan Miller and forward Steve Ott from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart, William Carrier, a first-round pick in 2015 and a third-round draft pick in 2016.
    There is no such thing as a "Bad Hockey Market"
    There are, however, several markets with "Bad Hockey"

    Nashville fired Barry Trotz today, the only coach in Nashville's history, which dates back to 1998 (15 seasons plus the lockouts).

    Trotz got the Predators to the playoffs 7 times, and past 100 points in a season 4 times. In one of those seasons, Nashville had the NHL's 5th best overall record, in another one, they managed the NHL's 6th best overall record.

    However, Nashville has never advanced past the second round of the playoffs and missed the playoffs this season by 3 points. Starting goalie Pekka Rinne was limited to 51 games due to injury and illness, and the Nashville backup goalies had no NHL experience coming into the season. Still, Trotz ended up being the casualty and the Predators will get a different head coach for next season.

    Peter Laviolette and Paul Maurice have been rumored as candidates.

    Washington fired coach Adam Oates, a former Capitals superstar player, after two seasons. It also announced that General Manager George McPhee, who has led the team for 17 years, will not have his contract renewed. Majority owner Ted Leonsis hopes to have a new GM and coach in time for the upcoming draft.

    I thought McPhee should have been turfed years ago....surprised he lasted this long.

    Most people here in DC are surprised he hadn't been fired sooner. Then again, Ted Leonsis liked GMGM, so there was that; this season forced Leonsis to take drastic action.

    Doesn't matter. Long as the team captain doesn't give a flying rat-youknowwhat about playing in the defensive side of centre ice, the team won't be any better, no matter who the coach or GM is.
    If Leonsis actually wants to make a change, either take the C from Ovechkin or move the player right out and start rebuilding.
