Not exactly Parise's biggest hugest fan, even though he's a great player, but saying he's a diver is ridiculous. Callahan is more of a diver than him.

I wish, but I just don't see it happening on the bigger ice surface. Doesn't suit our game.

I didn't know that. My parents live in Manhattan Beach and my mom has spotted Brown a few times and told me she was surprised his wife is "normal" looking.

Grew up in LA for 18 years and spent the last 6 in SD and I have to disagree. SD girls > LA girls.

I don't think that's the case anymore. USA Hockey has been going to a hybrid model for some time now, with a big emphasis on skating. I think we'll do much better this time around on the big ice than we did in Turin.

i like Parise...cant wait till he moves to the west coast so i can actually root for him...one of my former favorite Devils though was also american and now plays for the Blues. Langenbrunner was always a underrated player

More like 85%-90%. Krejci, Chara and Thomas were like the only who were not from Canada.

Seidenberg and Rask too, so that's 5 out of 20.

Is it just a coincidence that 3 captains left in the playoffs are American? We are pretty good leaders, eh?
