Why not? People name their kids all kind of names and his isn't anything odd. Perhaps not typically Swedish, but nothing odd.

Have you guys seen that the Islander fans are doing a walkout on ownership? I hope they can right the ship :/ I like the Isles.

Another shutout for King Henrik.

Columbus and Detroit are now dead even with 18 to play each. GO JACKETS!

Damn straight. Columbus is definitely the team I'm rooting for out east. Hope they get in and at least win a playoff game this time around.

It's a nickname! It can't be a name! His name should be Edward or something.

I don't know what about it makes me think this, but everytime I see the Dallas logo I swear it looks like it's been digitally imposed in every photo.

Haula runs Lehtonen and Cooke raises his arms in celebration with the puck ten feet wide of the net. I know he thought they scored, but that gif is just so perfectly Cooke.

LOL.

Makes sense I guess because they were playing the Bruins. Also looks like Jimmy Hayes had 2 goals for FLA.

I really hate having to root for the Wild when they play hockey so ugly and boring.

You know, though I find the people at CBC and Hockey Night in Canada to generally be out of touch dinosaurs at the best of times, I have the sneaking suspicion that Rogers is going to murder the brand when they take control next season. The rumored changes just do not look good right now.

Forgive my ignorance, but do Canadians have ESPN? I'd assume not since they have TSN but i'm trying to find a comparable sports network between the two countries.

Kind of off topic, I've never seen HNIC or really any TSN hockey coverage other than 30 second snippets here and there. But from what i've heard it seems like it's a lot of the same meathead "reporting" we get with ESPN in the states. Making stories/news out of nothing, a lot of pure speculation being talked about, a lot of minor issues being magnified etc...

I know a lot of people would love to have the NHL back on ESPN and see it get a lot more national attention and discussion with that network but i personally couldn't care less. I can't pinpoint the exact moment, but the ESPN i knew and loved in the mid to late 90's went from being a staple of my morning every day of my life to being this very different network that still had highlights, but the "news" and resulting discussions were just so vapid and unnecessary. ESPN, from what i remember of course, went from being a sports network that showed highlights of all the major sports evenly to being purely ratings based.

I wonder if TSN/HNIC is the same. People talking just to talk. I know the best thing for the NHL is to be as popular as possible, but the NHL not being on the center stage in North America and getting the same ESPN coverage as Football, Baseball, and even Basketball is 100% ok with me. I don't feel like i'm missing out on anything.

They don't have our ESPN, no. The 4 letter network owns 20% of TSN.

I think TSN is comparable to ESPN. ESPN owns a share in TSN. We don't have "ESPN proper" in Canada - although there is a speciality station, ESPN Classic, that broadcasts older events.

The reason people are so grumpy about TSN/HNIC and Sportnet isn't so much that the former are so amazing as it's the latter is just awful...TSN looks like award winning journalism compared to Sportsnet, which resembles a high school production.
