I don't know the details but if that's true (and I would believe it) it's more a "goddamit" than a "lol". It's pathetic that even now that we know how damaging impact sports can be to the brain, we (leagues, teams, doctors, players, parents...) continue to make idiotic decisions about the risks.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

like he was skating/shooting pucks with a dark visor theres no ****ing way its not some degree of concussion, yet they say they cleared him for contact.

At least Max is being smart and not jeopardizing his whole career just to come back a few games early, the sens would and will target him too.

They should use the new GY!BE album for any montage because:

It would piss them off, probably.

Burying Ron McLean for Stronbo was easily the best thing Sportsnet/Rogers did. Now just need to find a way to get Dinosaur Cherry off the air.

but to each his own

just waiting for him to die ldo

and you say this now, but i'm pretty sure the plan is to give that spot to Kypper
(and maybe Dougie Mac)

and actually the way they use Grapes in the playoffs is his best version by a mile, when they bring him in to talk about the games and stuff
it's so much better than his crappy scripted CC segments

2012 easily the worst of that bunch though, since it had a bunch of boring teams advance, and the Kangz just stomping everyone convincingly
maybe the habs series clouds it too much for me, the east was quite disappointing all in all

and ye I ended up putting 2012 last even though it basically happened in the time of my life so far and I have plenty of good memories (Vancouver getting crushed, or just watching games go into overtime at 7pm while hearing my parents leave for work ), just too many boring teams advancing and no close series in the west

You probably wouldn't like Edmonds, Beyak sounds like he's sleepy in comparison.

I've never seen anything top the '93 playoffs for sheer entertainment value (2003 came close), but this very well could.

LET US PLAYOFF

so Winninpeg have a 55.8% corsi tied and you can get them at 28/1. Sounds like pretty great value.

Habs in 7, Bolts in 5, Rag$ in 5, Isles in 7, Blues in 7, Hawks in 6, Jets in 7, Nucks in 5
Bolts in 6, Rag$ in 6, Blues in 7, Jets in 6
Bolts in 6, Blues in 5
Bolts in 6

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

The Jets are a pretty good team, almost never had a healthy lineup in the season and have a great coach.

I wouldn't say I'm confident, but we're definitely undervalued.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Great promo going on at PokerStars for Canadians who will be intensely following the Playoffs...

https://www.pokerstars.com/poker/pro...ockeyplayoffs/

I'm rooting for the Habs myself, but it's going to be a tough, tough road.
