Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Canada got something right - Hockey, eh?

Hockey.

The regular season is almost at a close, and with the playoffs fast approaching, I thought it was time that we who give a shit shared our favorite moments.

Here are some of mine!

Zednik getting his throat slit!

Crosby crushing his ankle and coming back too soon... and now he's out again. That's a great team doctor you got there Pittsburgh.

Ovechkin's record.

There was a Canucks game that was so intense I actually lost count of the fights. At one point there were 4 fights on the ice at once.

And of course, here are the standings.

Also: Maple syrup is pretty delicious too I guess.

    hockey is pretty cool but i like to watch lacrosse

    i'm pretty sure there aren't any rules and there is definitely less padding

    I wish I could get tickets to a game.

    Stupid Canucks being sold out since about 1 day after tickets went on sale.

    I've only ever been to one NHL game.

    I'm hoping that the Sonics move to Oklahoma and we fill the void with a professional hockey team.

    I went to a leafs game a few years ago because my company had season tickets.

    attn: leafs fans
    you may not bitch about how bad your team is and continue to buy $800 tickets to their games and bitch about the high prices

    you may do one out of three

    If you would have told me at the beginning of the season that the Wings would be this far ahead I would have told you to shut up.

    But damn.

    I feel like they are always this far ahead every season for the past few years.

    Yeah, but with the changes that were made in the line-up and Osgood starting more often I didn't think they'd be so... good. Especially with all the new guys on the ice more often.

    I am going to the Caps game sunday afternoon, against the Bruins. Soooo excited. It is exciting watching the Caps try to make the playoffs, though their chances are kinda iffy. I don't care, Ovechkin is pretty much the best hockey player right now, and he is a joy to watch.

    Also, the Caps-Flames last night had OvieCam going on one of the channel. Split screen between the game and a camera focused on Ovechkin the whole night. Him blowing snot rockets out of his nose and cheering in russian/broken english was awesome.

    I'm an Oilers fan.

    Everything before January this year was fucking depressing.

    Everything afterwards made me think we should be sending our players out for genetic testing.

    There are far fewer holes in this organization than there have been at any point over the last few seasons. For once, there is hope for the future with a crop of rookies who seem to be capable fucking players.

    I just hope Pitkanen has been playing injured, because he is in no way living up to expectations recently. From what I've heard he's been playing with a really bad hip, so that is slightly reassuring.

    My friend and I have yearly bet that I might have to change next season.

    He's a Canucks fan and I root for the Red Wings, so every time they meet up in the regular season it's $5 to the winner. Whoever gets farther in the playoffs gets $10.

    I might have to change the team I root for next year because this is getting ridiculous.

    if an NHL team ever won a game by doing the 'flying V'

    I moved away from Edmonton about 5 years ago, recently I started listening to 630 Ched again on my computer, awhile back they broke from the regular programming to play the press conference with the potential new owner.

    Seemed promising.

    Hey

    I never said I was a soccer fan. Merely that Seattle managed to get a pro soccer club lined up, henceforth, the possibility of a pro hockey team in Puget Sound is not entirely out of the question.

    Mainly I like giving Tonk shit whenever possible.

    Having a single owner who is passionate about the team is definitely a step in the right direction. Means stability and such.

    Also actually having a future for the team is nice, too. As opposed to before, where most of our rookies ran the gamut from sucky to suckier.

    I am a devils man, but honestly I never get to see games on Australian TV.

    Oh sure you'll replay an entire cricket test from 8 years ago, you'll show every Rugby League game three times, but one hockey game a week.

    When does the season usually start? Will I be able to go to a game when I am all over America in late September?
