Anyone else watching Bachelor Canada? I don't think enough people will care in OOTV but maybe this thread has more Canadian interest.

Brad Smith’s father, Larry Smith, is akin to Canadian football royalty. He’s a former Montreal Alouettes star running back, former commissioner of the league and former president of the Alouettes. He’s currently a Conservative member of the Senate, having been appointed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2010.
And Brad played 07-10 in the CFL. Hasn't played since. He still calls himself a "professional football player." It's hard not to make the show when your dad is who he is... at first the guy came off as a complete scrub, but he was OK by the end of the show. Some of the girls seem really... worn out though.

Good show. They need an NHLer next time lololol.

Has this thread devolved into bachelor discussion? We need hockey badly.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

We have a few players on our team who go Bachelor crazy on twitter every Monday (I think it's Monday). It's become a running joke how into the show they are. But this is U.S. version of the show.

In other news: I won my 10/1 bet on bovada today on whether any NHL games would be cancelled. They already paid which kind of surprised me since it is still possible to salvage an 82-game season (crammed...or pushed back). But today the first two weeks of games were technically "cancelled" so I guess that was good enough for the bet.

SPORTSNET TO TELEVISE AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE GAMES IN CANADA AHL to be featured nationally Oct. 13 and Oct. 20

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League and Sportsnet, entering the second year of a five-year relationship, announced today that Sportsnet will begin coverage of the AHL’s 77th season with three live, national Saturday night broadcasts this month.

On Oct. 13, the defending Western Conference champion Toronto Marlies (top affiliate of the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs) will host the Rochester Americans (Buffalo Sabres) at 5 p.m. ET.

Then on Oct. 20, it’s an AHL doubleheader as the Marlies host the Hamilton Bulldogs (Montreal Canadiens) at 7 p.m. ET and the Chicago Wolves (Vancouver Canucks) visit the Abbotsford Heat (Calgary Flames) at 10 p.m. ET.

All three games will air live across Canada in high definition on Sportsnet ONE. Hockey Central host Jeff Marek will be joined by analysts Brad May and John Shannon for pre-game and intermission analysis. Joe Bowen, Greg Millen and Paul Hendrick will provide the call from Toronto, while Rob Kerr, Charlie Simmer, John Garrett and Roger Millions bring home the action from Abbotsford.

“As we prepare to embark on an exciting 2012-13 season in the American Hockey League, we are thrilled to be teaming with Sportsnet to bring our sport’s best young talent into the homes of our fans across Canada,” said David Andrews, AHL President and Chief Executive Officer.

“There is a great hunger and passion for hockey across this country, and we are thrilled to partner with the American Hockey League to provide fans with access to premium, live hockey destination viewing on Saturdays for the coming weeks,” said Navaid Mansuri, Vice-President of Finance and Sports Programming, Rogers Media.

The American Hockey League, which begins its 77th season of play on Oct. 12, continues to serve as the top development league for the players, coaches, managers, executives and broadcasters of all 30 National Hockey League teams. More than 88 percent of NHL players are American Hockey League graduates, and for the 11th year in a row, more than 6 million fans attended AHL games across North America in 2011-12. Through the years, the AHL has been home to more than 100 future members of the Hockey Hall of Fame, including legends such as Johnny Bower, Andy Bathgate, Gerry Cheevers, Larry Robinson, Patrick Roy and Brett Hull.

Wouldn't be surprised if NHL Network picked them up.

NBC sports network is showing college hockey from Kansas city next weekend. Notre dame vs Boston college. Army vs nebraska-Omaha.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Hopefully, they will not cancel the entire season. A shortened version will be fine for me as the regular season is too long anyway. Or as I refer to it:
Pre-season = Regular season
Regular season = 1st round of playoffs
2nd round of playoffs = Post- Season
That being said Gary Bettman + Donald Fehr = uncharted territory. Can they break their previous records of longest lockouts? Only time will tell.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Why stop at 1 season? Cancel the next 4 for all I care, which is the number of years left on René Bourque's contract.

Then Pacioretty, Price, Subban and Galchenyuk will all be in their prime/early prime.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Open letter to NHL Owners and Players

I see that NHL games have been cancelled through to the end of October. I know you are both busy bargaining, but I have a favour to ask. I was wondering if you could hold off on a settlement until at least February? If you settle sooner it just doesn’t work that well for me. The baseball playoffs are starting, US college football is heating up, not to mention the NFL and CFL are in full swing. With all the NFL playoffs and US College bowl games taking most of my sports watching time in December and January, I really can’t find much time for hockey until February. Besides, most of the NHL teams make the playoffs anyway, and the season is a bit long already, don’t you think? Players are getting banged up and injured and tired and this hurts their playoff performance.

So, please take as much time as you need, but my preference would be that you don’t end all the artificial posturing too early. I know I am being selfish, but settling sooner would inconvenience me.

Both of you have said it is all about the fans, so I hope you will give serious consideration to my request. Take your time. I may or may not check you out when you are back, but in looking at my calender I can at least pencil you in for February.

I hope they retroactively cancel the last 10 seasons so I can prevent Gaborik from ever becoming a Ranger

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

If they do get back soon, I think they should reschedule the missed games at the end of the season. Those seasons with asterisks and streaks that end at lockout years are black marks.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Watching highlights from other leagues just makes me weep for having no NHL. Like, I'm doing okay with the lockout as long as I'm not reminded of the beautiful sport we're being deprived of. I should stop clicking this thread.
