Yeah. They're also rocking some lulz-worthy chassis on their skates, along with ridiculously heavy leather boots. Bobby Bourne is by far the best skater in that clip and he's probably the only guy who was experimenting with some of the newer Tuuk models. Actually, if you notice in that clip, he has two different-coloured blades, most likely because he cracked one of his newer chassis and the equipment guys didn't have another one ready for him.

It can't be overstated enough how much skating technology has improved in the last 3-4 decades. It's just unreal.

Lots of good questions in that set. Definitely lots of people going to be leveling themselves.

sorry bro, this is what happens when you are a terrible poster and end up on my ignore list - apparently your PMs are also ignored by me, because I never received one from you.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Hey if anyone is really missing hockey, and more specifically, NBC hockey coverage, they should check out the olympic water polo coverage.

Not only is Doc Emerick the play-by-play guy, but there is also Pierre McGuire doing his Pierre thing too!

Oh Pierre. During his post-game interview with an American, he says "If I was drafting players, I'd draft you!" Goddamn.

my answers for Hodgepodge have been submitted. My age, er, I mean my experience certainly helps me on some of Triumph's trivia.

The list of undrafted NHLers is impressive. I couldn't think of one.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

I had a solid guess for #5, but he got drafted 217th overall.

I was also typing without thinking and answered "Brent Sutter" for #2. I really hope Triumph accepts my revised answer...

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

revised answers should be no good. I thought and thought and thought about #5 and typed GRETZKY thinking "ZOMG it's a trick question!" and before I submitted my answers reread everything and realized i'm a moron. i then thought and thought and thought again and believe i got it right (i haven't checked).

I am really surprised that people have claimed to have so much trouble with this question - it's certainly not easy, but people should be able to think of at least one.

I think I have to ding you for that, yeah. I'd like to say I would accept revised answers only if it's clear the person misunderstood the question, but that can become an angleshoot.
