    Couple interesting college hockey rules changes:

    1) No one will be thrown out of faceoffs. A second infraction by the same player will be a minor penalty.
    2) Offensive zone team gets to pick which faceoff dot is used.

    Ooh that second one is fun.

    Patrick marleau resigned with the sharks. Has a chance to set the record for most nhl games played, if he does 45 games next year, passing gordie howes record of 1767 games.

    Howe played until he was 52, but seasons were only 70 games long, in his day.

    Nieto also back to San Jose. Getting the band back together.

    I actually liked Long Beach Native but we have O'Connor and Kaut probably bumping up.

    Not impressed with the Canuck's off season. Letting Markstrom and Tanev walk makes sense, but letting Stetcher and Toffoli go, when they could have signed those contracts in Vancouver is lame.

    Getting Schmidt is good, but this regime's ineptness with the Sutter, Erikson, Beagle, and Rousel contracts is potentially going to cripple a team that could become a real cup contender.

    If Toronto keeps going like this, they'll be very intriguing at the start of the season. Scrappy vets on short, value contracts and some solid roleplayers.

    Plus there's rumors they could potentially land Thornton before the off-season is done.

    Wait, roleplayers? Is someone going to play all their games the Sesame Street's "The Count"?

    In hockey role players are the bottom end of the lineup guys who don’t score much but can do other things well like defend, kill penalties, win face offs etc.

    The Canadian Division? Looks like we have a COVID-era realignment on the way. Makes sense with teams not being likely to cross the US/Canada border.

    Joe Thornton signs in Toronto.

    There goes my desire to see him win a cup

    Oof. Gotta appreciate the honesty, at least.

    He was ok for a couple of years. I wouldn't say he never panned out, he just didn't become a superstar.

    Emrick is finally retiring after 25 years of everything being the most exciting that ever happened in a rink, making nothing actually exciting.

    Great, just what hockey culture needs, giving racist, abusive kids more chances.

    Warning, a pretty gross story. This guy the Coyotes drafted in the first round is known to have been physically, mentally, and racially abusive towards a developmentally delayed kid in his school.

    When I read the first sentence I thought it was going to be about the story about a video that come out of Calgary minor hockey, showing a kid going into convulsions after some hazing stunt.

  • chromdomchromdom Who? Where?Registered User regular
    I understand (haven't checked to verify specifically) that he was chosen in the 4th round, not the 1st, because the 'Yotes were penalized for illegal / early scouting. Which doesn't mitigate anything, but does show that all the other teams said fuck no multiple times.
