If you like hockey watch the movie GOON..... Many of the family friendly types in Columbus will not like it but it defines what it takes to win in the game of hockey...

Toughness, dedication and team win games..... (within the rules)

Really had the potential to be a great movie, if not for the over-dramatized scene at the end. I won't spoil it for anyone, but I loved it for the other 95%. I thought Sean William Scott did a great job of portraying exactly what an enforcer should be. The only other issue I had was with the way they made Doug Glatt seem absolutely moronic at times, like he needed a caretaker - and at other times, he felt moderately intelligent. It didn't work as well as it did in Forrest Gump.

This was my biggest issue with the movie and totally killed my enjoyment of it. I don't know if the real guy was as dimwitted, but it made me feel embarrassed like I was watching a movie that made fun of a special olympics kid.

Keeping all games within each conference gives the Eastern Conference teams a big advantage over their Western counterparts. The web site Ontheforecheck.com calculated how much each team will travel and found the Minnesota Wild tops at 31,345 miles (49,890 kilometres). This is almost three times as far as the New Jersey Devilsí 11,659 miles (17,703 kilometres), the lowest in the league. The Devils and everyone else in the Atlantic Division will be able to sleep in their own beds most nights, which is the envy of the Western teams.
IIRC, the Wild won't have long road streaks, though. In number of games. Maybe that balances it a bit.

His mullet must be back and wrapped around his brain (or at least the western half of it). The Wild?

I can see them surprising some people. Maybe not make it to the finals but have a good playoff. Only thing is, even with the addition of Suter, the defense looks weak though imo(but I admit, have no idea how training camp went with their defenders).

I've also heard a LA/NYR finals which would be the worst for us and our 1st round picks.

A great lesson for the young fans out there. Whine and complain enough and you will be rewarded with the ultimate prize.

Strangely enough, that didn't work for me when my family moved way back when I was in 5th grade and I was upset about it.

Thought the same, though the Kings/Hawks should be good (plus, we can scout!).

Thanks, Derby, that's the downside of watching without sound!

It worked for Brendan Shanahan, and he was also the captain of the Whalers.

Of course, the biggest difference is that he actually didn't float around like the Goodyear blimp when he was on the ice.

Even after all these years when I watch Washington play, I still think of Chimera as a Blue Jacket who is just playing for the Capitals. And I wasn't even that big of a fan of his.

Worked for Pronger as well but he sucked it up for a season and didn't go public(only to management). Almost won the Cup but when he didn't got his agent to the dirty work while he ran off to Mexico with his Wife. Then he got traded and went onto win the Cup.
