I believe Chicago implemented the stand up goalie system last year

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Depends on the context.

The best game I've ever reffed was a Peewee AAA game at the Golden Horseshoe tournament in Burlington a couple years ago (used to be Ontario's preeminent Christmas AAA tournament), and it was a 0-0 tie between the two of the previous year's provincial championships finalists. I've never been involved in a more exciting game in my life.

some low scoring games are exciting, yes, i agree with that. best game i have ever seen was when Buffalo beat Ottawa 7-6 in Game 1 of 06 or 07 playoffs. I don't need 11-9 scored. I just want more goals.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Goals might make games slightly more exciting, but I know one of the best hockey games I've ever seen was SJ losing to Colorado 1-0 in OT a couple years ago in the playoffs on Dan Boyle's own goal. Huge letdown to end the game, but man the 60 minutes in regulation was crazy.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

I couldn't come up with a French or Swiss player. One of them is mentioned in the radio play-by-play that I posted, but I would hardly have known.

They need nicknames like The Paris Pistol, or The Swiss Guard. Everyone knows where Teemu is from.

Maybe it's because they all play(ed) for the Habs, but I find it pretty weak you couldn't name a Swiss player.

There were 2 before 1996 one of whom played in 1 game. I was trying to learn my team last year.

So it seems Geddy and NhlNut were separated at birth.

Uncanny resemblance.
