Well not only that, there were other, bigger problems. This blog has some good info on it:
http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=367201

If trapezoid rule is removed, then there will be too many goalies that exploit it and it will make games LESS interesting, not more.

If no touch rule is removed at the same time then it's a different story. At distance X from the net I would allow even body checks. I would also punish teams that start a fight after a legal hit much much harder.

So removing trapezoid rule - fine. But only if some other rules are changed as well. My two cents.

Apparently the LA media isn't the only one that doesn't know the difference between their local sports teams.

With all due respect to Mr Quick (who has been great) and Mr Brown (who's strongest play was early in the playoffs), I believe Mr Doughty should be the Conn Smythe winner - but as you can see above, I am far from objective.

For me it's neck and neck between Kopitar and Doughty. How can you even make a case for Doughty if you don't know how he's been playing? I know you said you cheer for teams with the most Canadians but you haven't watched him to form an opinion.

Yeah Cherry's yelling was more about the number of North Americans on the Kings, not just Canadians. And I had no problem with it. He's a pretty sharp guy when it comes to hockey, even if he is loud and old.

He started his thought with how many Canadians were on the Kings and then migrated to North Americans with the help of Ron.

Anyway, Ive been watching him since his Grapevine years and he's become a caricature of himself. I dont like nor hate him, he's just a tool...plain and simple.

Conn Smythe winner will be one of these 6:

Brown (USA)
Quick (USA)
Parise (USA)
Kopitar (SVN)
Kovalchuk (USSR)
and maybe maybe Brodeur (CAN), but he needs 2 shutdowns.

Last 4 CS winners: SWE, USSR, USA, CAN

I don't have anything against Canadians, great country. I'm just having some fun, you know.

That's fantastic. I finally got a Kings Hat so I could fit in.
I haven't read any past this post but what video feed are you watching?

Thanks! If I had finished first I would have won a $20 Dairy Queen gift card.
2nd prize got nothing.



Just a fun/points league.

Something really cool about watching Anze give interviews in Slovenian. Plus, I love to see people in his home town getting so excited about Kings games. Our team has international flair!

I hope we can get Fred Roggin to go out and cover the Kings game live at your party. You guys have better audio and video quality


This is a video of a TV but notice how bad the video quality is by comparing it to the TV 's frame.

I don't know what NBC4 was thinking using a standard def camera for live postgame coverage. That entire first 5 minutes of the postgame was a hot mess.
