    OH OH I PLAY HOCKEY!!!
    [/excitement]

    I'm also pretty happy because in general my Blackhawks have been doing much better than in past years.
    However, with like six starters out (including Toews >.< ) and their mile long losing streak (eight games? Nothing like last year but it seems huge) they've been nothing to be proud of lately Dx

    Hockey is my favourite sport. It's basically the only thing I'm good at in life. I'm serious.

    Kitchener was attempting to get a hockey team. Hamilton is too close to Toronto in order to have a team. If they were to get a team, they'd have to pay Toronto x amount of money for being in their territory.

    True.
    Hasn't it been speculated before though?
    I remember seeing something on TSN about that.
    I think that Victoria should get a team.
    You know, we need to represent all of Canada.

    Yeah, last year.
    I'm surprised all the provinces and territories don't have NHL teams.
    I mean..Florida has a team and they don't even get snow =\

    Man, Philly is brutal this year.
    They're like the Canucks for violence xD

    They only win because nobody wants to get hospitalized =P
    Nah, they're pretty good. Vicious though. But that's what the sport is about...
    Beating up your best friend and getting away with it :shifty

    Icing occurs when a player shoots the puck across at least two red lines, the opposing team's goal line being the last. When icing occurs, a linesman stops play. Play is resumed with a faceoff in the defending zone of the team that committed the infraction.

    I think that's allowed now...but I'm not sure. I'm still learning a lot about the sport even though I've been watching it forever.

    I live in Chicago, and grew up as a Blackhawks fan. They were doing good this year, were in 2nd for a while. Psssh. I still watch for the fights.
    I went to a game last year for the Wolves, and sat up in the front row by the teams. There was a fight right in from of me and the guy next to me kept saying, "Jab his eye out!"
    xD

    I heard about that.
    Poor guy. Nobody deserves to be injured, but its bound to happen.
    I mean, this is hockey after all.

    Yeah, I don't like him but it sucks when people get injured. A few of my friends got injured a few games ago. But when you go into any sport, especially hockey, you better have a high pain tolerance and get used to hospital food.

    Is anyone else shocked that the Leafs won last night by a 2 goal lead? o.o

    ...I hate not having cable. I can't watch any games.
    I really wanna watch!
    Once income tax comes though it'll be just in time for playoffs I think, we might get it earlier.
    -can't wait for income tax-

    Goooood it's about time.
    I forgot his name but his nickname is Trader _____ is the GM. On the news it said that once these players multi-year contract are goooone and in about 3 years, the leafs will be a new team and finally start to win >.<
    Finally, a GM with a brain. I mean, 3 years since the lockout and haven't made the playoffs the entire time, stop being so loyal and trade for some new players!
