I might be blind but I find most of the Marlie forwards slower compared to other teams.

I don't necessarily agree here, but there have been times, watching them, that they come out sluggish, and appear to have lead in their boots.

Remind you of anyone??
Hahaha.

Cant blame the kid for playing with his heart on his sleeve and getting amped for a playoff game.

Completely different story if he does the Ovechkin "hot stick" type of celebration.




Tickets during the playoffs are going from about $45/seat for Lower Level Platinums to about $20/seat for "Upper" level seats. But in all honesty, there isn't a bad seat in the house.

The Marlies sell their tickets on ticketmaster.ca
That's cheap! What's the likelyhood of getting a ticket if they get through?

Also, I was going to say that there can't really be a bad seat as it's quite close.

That's just too bad switching in mid stream just doesn't work eg Olden, Krieder is an example of playing three years, maturing and able to step right into the NHL.

I don't know how I feel about it, though I don't think it will ruin the kids development by any means. Player development is definitely specific to the player itself.

Assuming he goes to the OHL:

The good is that Biggs will play a larger role for a longer enduring season with arguably more peers and better overall talent... It could help him develop his offensive game more.

However the downside is that he'll be physically more dominant than other players compared to the NCAA, where he was already playing with more mature players. This in itself would present a tougher transition to the pros presumably in the following season. I say that because he may get used to using his size to run show in the OHL, whereas that may not translate as well into the NHL right away.

Time will tell I suppose

kreider and biggs are completely different players with different skill sets, a pro like schedule in Oshawa might be the best for biggs followed by a year or 2 i the American league

God, would you get a G.D. Life already?

They're of age, and had drinks while waiting on the second round. It's legal, coaches know, and there was no discipline; thus, no foul.

Nothing good happens in the backroom of a sleezy bar, same thing as a crack house or Hoe House.

Are you serious?

The backroom of the bar is where these guys go to get away from everyone who comes up to them in the main area you tool.

Hockey is popular as hell in calgary you dont think they get approach time in and time out whenever they go downtown?

Esp Dion at the time, seeing as he was quite the figure in Calgary at the time.

I was at the game last night. Like others have said, not a bad seat in the place. Solid atmosphere for a Tuesday night as well (everyone had flags waving). You'll have no problem getting seats as there we still a good amount of empty seats. Good, cheap, fun way to spend the evening!

FreeBird is right. Not much good happens in the backroom at Cowboys. Thanks to Eric Francis and his friends I once got thrown out of Cowboys in a choke hold and a bloody lip. I was with Eric Francis and his friends for a private Calgary Sun promotion, free drinks etc, they opened the bar and we got rolled by the bouncers. It was ****ed.
