Look at this thing, it looks like a giant engine air filter.

Conveniently called Rogers Place.
Rogers Arena is Vancouver.
Rogers Centre is SkyDome.



This is where the Heritage Classic will take place on Oct. 23, Investors Group Field.
The ice fits between the sideline numbers, actually, half way to where the hash marks are. A CFL field is 195 feet wide, an NHL rink is 85 feet.

I'm Elsa and I subscribed to 2+2 in September because I wanted to make a PGC to keep me motivated in my poker journey.

I play 200z and 500z.

Anyways, as it turns out, I'm also a huge fan of hockey.

Favorite team is obv Montreal Canadiens.

I'm in a season long hockey pool w my friends and I follow the league during the offseason too.

I also bet on the NHL w relative small success (5-8% roi) even though it's one of the sports with the less value to be find in the odds.

May Price carry us

This doesn't look good for Buffalo. Could be a knee injury for Eichel.

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

Crosby out with a concussion
Eichel might have broken his damn leg/ankle/ripped up his knee
Price to miss tomorrow with the flu
Bergeron to miss the opener with a LBI
O'Reilly has a bad back
Okposo took a puck to the knee and hasn't skated in like 2 weeks
Bjugstad out a month
Huberdeau out 3-4 months from a skate cut
Vatrano out until xmas
wait, does the whole Habs team have the flu?
Gaborik out another 4-6 weeks
Grabo out indefinitely with a concussion
MacArthur probably the same
Schwartz out another 2-4 weeks
Trouba, Lindholm & Rakell are still unsigned
Hjalmarsson, Pearson, Gudas & Schenn are suspended
and on, and on, and on it goes...

this is fine

looking forward to the Marlies losing to the LolSens, who have basically nothing going for them
the BoA game should make me puke a few times
the 2 USA#1 games should be solid
Sharks = FREE MONEY

The Toronto Maple Leafs - 100th Season

Not even the doom and gloom of a 72o can come close to dampening my spirits today. How could he when the Leafs are introducing a crop of players like these? Probably won't contend for a couple of years as is usual with a group like this but if Andersen can play above avg maybe we can scare a few teams.

A.M. - Superstar to be. Don't see how you could say anything else at this point. Certainly one of the most complete players ever to enter the league.

Billy Nylander - posesses the elite skills and speed of a first team winger. Has the pedigree to know what it takes to move ahead in the league. Looking good so far

Mitch Marner - While not lighting up the scoreboard in preseason, he has lit up the ice. Consistently stealing and finding the puck and putting on some impressive rushes up the ice. If his finish catches even slightly up to his Jr. numbers the Leafs may have something special. He is slight which is about the only knock you can find on him but trust me the fire burns bright in this one. One of those players you want to watch everyday. Datsuyk lite.

Nikita Zaitsev - Wow what a steal signed out of the KHL at age 24 (similar to Parnarin last yr. they played on the same team and are friends) Big mobile good shot, very few mistakes, a 1st team all star in the KHL and 1st D on the recent Russian WC team. Looks like he's stepping right into the top pairing on the Leafs.

Oh Yeahhhhhhhhh

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

So if you have a whole day to kill and want a fun exercise go to www.planmyteam.com and protect a bunch of players and then do a expansion exercise and try and fit in all the rules. I did the exercise and this is the team that I came up with:

Belesky - Namestnikov - Atkinson
Roussel - Eller - Stempniak
Pukkinen - Berglund - Parenteau
Higgins - Mackenzie - Stewart

Armia
Bouma
Bourque
Kelly

Campbell - Fowler
Braun - Holden
Gudas - Emelin

Gorges
Merill
Carle
Carrick
Poulliot

Zatkoff
Domingue
Gustavsson

Obvioulsy, no idea what teams are going to protect what players and what the strategy of Vegas will be but that is a team that I came up with. Again, I didn't really have a set strategy because fitting in with the rules proves to be quite difficult.

ya the guys on TSN currently going FULL about how great the Laffs are gonna be this year

literally everything is going to break good apparently, seems legit

possible issues:
1. Rielly still has zero idea how to defend, and he's 1st pairing? this is fine
2. the **** is a Connor Carrick?
3. Freddy Andersen is a below average starter who was given $25m or whatever
4. six rookies in the lineup or something? can't see how that could ever go wrong
5. the **** is a Zach Hyman?
6. Milan Michalek is still alive? good to know

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

St. Louis has two players from Winnipeg.

Alex Steen is the son of Winnipeg Jet Thomas Steen.
Ryan Reaves is the son of Winnipeg Blue Bomber Willard Reaves.

That's all I know.

What you want to do while watching a game is this:
Learn the defensive pairings for both teams.
Watch which lines they play against.

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

Going to the Sens game tonight.

Can't wait to hear the home team booed during player intros of the home opener...

People already freaking out about unsold seats for the game. The more things change, the more things stay the same. Some of the cheapest tickets in the league, still lots left two hours before puck drop. Maybe even the Leaf fans don't care about going to games in Ottawa either.

Anyway, let's see what Boucher can do to transform this team. Still a pretty meh group of forwards, still couldn't find anyone better than Mark Borowiecki for bottom pairing d.

The Kings bandwagon is noticeably lighter these days. Will make the coming victory that much sweeter.
Except tonight. Sharks are indeed FREE MONEY.
