The ancient city of Troy was in Turkey. You could use that.

It's pretty clearly Cooke's fault. I think Lemieux's comments generated more traffic than either of Cooke's incidents and perhaps even more than combined, but a large part of why Lemieux's comments were so controversial was Cooke being on his team and having engaged in less than appropriate behavior in back-to-back games, one of them having earned him a 4 game suspension.

Forsberg was only a minor contributing factor.


Also, Austria. But if you're looking for a badass flag, you might want to check out Albania's. Black two-headed eagle on red background.

As funny as it is to answer Matt Cooke (I did), how can a high profile message board like this NOT have the bandwidth to handle "heavy traffic the site has been experiencing for the last week"?

That is descended from their Eastern Roman/Byzantine heritage. I think the two headed eagle got started as the familial crest of the Paeleologi Dynasty, and then just stuck arouind. A few other countres have used it, most recognizably the Romanov Dynasty

In honor of JVR's Gordie Howe Hatty, I chose Lord Howe Island.


And it's Mario's fault.
It's always Mario's fault.

Afghanistan. Support our troops!

I was disappointed with the choices in this poll. If it were Forsberg, there would be rumours every day that the avatars would be back "possibly tonight, we'll see how they feel", only to be disappointed, have them come back for 2-3 days, then disappear again. Mario is a great choice – love the "quotes" – and Cooke, well ... he's the root of all evil.

What, IMHO, was missing was:
  • Al Qaeda
  • David Steckel (but it was a clean check)
  • Obama (according to the "memb-er" movement, Obama doesn't even have a real HF account)
  • Goldman Sachs
  • Justin Bieber (need every MB of bandwidth for more dreamy posters!)
  • Old Man McGrady ("And I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling kids and your stupid dog!")
  • Dr. Mayhem
  • The "trap"

Pronger was a great suggestion, though my understanding is he got 2 min for blocking the avatars with his arm.

Between the Penguins/Islanders fiasco and the trade deadline, site hits are seemingly going through the roof.

Here's some visual evidence as part of the problem...
