yeah, if you're Nashville you definitely prefer a penalty shot. A ~67% chance the other team won't score + 2:30 of even strength is a much better chance of tying the game than being shorthanded for nearly the entire rest of regulation.

Sedins are beasts on the breakaway and penalty shots, yet completely pathetic in shootouts.

Henrik has pulled off some nifty moves on breakaways and in close against the goalie.





Daniel has some moves too.





The Sedins seem to know what to do, but in shootouts they're hopeless except for the occasional goal.

BS penalty shot changed the complexion of the game. It restored the two goal lead and seconds later Nash pulled the goalie and gave up an empty netter.
Henrik sucks at shootouts and the PP would have really killed off any time the Preds had to come back. They would have to pull the goalie to go 5 on 5 and it would have been game over most likely.

Lol, I thought it was quite obvious I was referring to his surprise that a "sister" was able to score a goal. He sounds like a bandwagoner who hears the Sedins being called sisters and soft and assumes they are terrible players. I'm not "knew" to hockey.

I think it's funny that he makes so many comments on twitter. He had a bunch during the Weber stuff last year about how he would be matched and money was not an issue.

I'm pretty sure most people in Canada know who he is, or I thought so anyways. Rich mofo part owns the Preds.
He's a member of the Order of Canada as well, although I'm sure none of us had any idea before tonight. Taken from Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._Brett_Wilson

Quote:
Wilson co-founded an investment banking advisory firm, Wilson Mackie & Co., in 1991 - a firm that enjoyed considerable success brokering oil and gas companies and properties.

In 1993, with Rick Grafton, Jim Davidson and N. Murray Edwards, he co-founded FirstEnergy Capital Corp., now a leading Canadian stock brokerage firm that provides investment-banking services to global participants in the energy sector - via offices in Calgary, AB and London, England. The firm is now (less than) 20% owned by Societe Generale out of France. Wilson retired from active duty at FirstEnergy in July 2007 but retained his role as Chairman of the company until December 2008. His primary holding company, Prairie Merchant Corporation, is the vehicle from which he makes most of his investments in the energy, agriculture, real estate, sports, and entertainment industries.

In October 2008 Wilson became a leading investor in Derby County F.C.. Derby are currently playing in the Championship,[2] the highest division of The Football League and second-highest division overall in the English football league system after the Premier League.

In 2010, Wilson became chairman of Canoe Financial, a privately owned investment management firm with well over $2.0 billion in assets focused on providing investors with unique opportunities to profit from Canada’s increasing prominence on the global "resource" stage.[3]

After announcing his departure from Dragons' Den in early 2011, he participated in his own entrepreneurship-themed series, Risky Business, which aired on Slice in the fall of 2011.[4] He has a regular column in the National Post featuring reports on his Dragons' Den investments and entrepreneurial insights.
Quote:
In 2010, he received an Honorary Doctor of Laws from Royal Roads University for his role as a business leader, dynamic philanthropist, and entrepreneurial mentor. Wilson was appointed to Member of the Order of Canada on June 30, 2011.[1] In 2012, he was one of a select group to receive the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal honouring the achievements and contributions of notable Canadians.
The philanthrophy section is a bit biased in its choice of words, I'd say, although I'm sure he's accomplished things:
Quote:
A more comprehensive overview of Wilson's philanthropic initiatives can be found on his personal website - but even that list fails to give a complete picture of the breadth of his influence on Canada's philanthropic community.

I wonder if this N00b (billions or not) would say that to Henrik if they actually were to meet in person.

Probably not. That's the problem with the internet, it's too easy calling people things left and right. It's the cowards way. If you dont have anything good to say or write, then dont say/type it.

It's odd to see Brett Wilson say that since he is such a quiet guy on Dragons Den.

I guess being an introvert doesn't make you smart, and money doesn't make you a winner.

Not misused at all. I'm rather surprised that you'd be confused by an alternate use of rustling. What to do.

Look. You looking? Here he goes...and...and...YEAAHHH!!!! WOOO!!! Uh...what? Oh yeah, shootouts...hon? You watching? Huh? you see that? Huh?"

WHAT ARE YOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT ???? You guys have no idea how Henrik is in the shoot out.

HE`S ONLY TAKEN THREE IN HIS WHOLE CAREER.

It`s beautiful. Just regurgitation of other people`s assumptions and basing your opinion on common opinion.

The comedy here is amazing. Just phenomenal. I`ve been yelling at the TV for years saying they need to be both put in the shoot-out. There`s no way that one could definitively know in 3 shots lifetime how a guy would be long term. Especially with his skill set, it`s ridiculous.

PS. Daniel is sitting at around 17% which isn`t pretty, but to put that into context, Stamkos is around 18%, Havlat is the exact same as Daniel. Most importantly, Daniel has taken so little in his career, popping one will move him 2.5 - 3% at the moment.

Had to google this Brett Wilson guy, honestly never heard of him.

Nice move by Sedin but I think that goal was more Mason than Henrik.

The 'Sisters' jokes have grown so old I couldn't get "torn up" if I wanted to. Instead of making my body tense up and the hair stand up on the back of my neck, all I can do is sigh and shake my head at the guy.

I mean honestly, if Canucks owner Francisco Aquilini said after the game that Pekka Rinne played like a little girl in net tonight, would you be more likely to consider it an act of comedic genius or a juvenile display of poor sportsmanship? It's just not a funny joke.

To be fair, there isn't a rival between Preds and Nucks so I don't hear the comment often, if at all. Only on these boards. However, none of us said it, the part owner said it and I laughed. Sorry.

Fair enough.

Pretty immature coming from the owner of a franchise though. Oh well.

Those sisters are the most uniquely talented players in the world.
