I play road hockey every sunday with a bunch of guys. It's fun as heck.

I don't watch the NHL all that much, but do in the playoffs because every sport is exciting in the playoffs.

I play defense . I started playing with classmates this years , because my mom wouldn't let me play in a league when I was a kid(she said I was too agressive) .
I'm a poor colege student and don,t have cable , so I don't watch hockey much , but I hope the habs will make the playoff and win the cup .
My favorite team is Dallas though , because my first hockey card ever was Darcy Wakaluk , and I thought he was the best goaltender ever . :banana:

I play in division 4 of www.hna.com in Calgary. Play defence now, was a goalie when I was a kid, played to Junior B.

I am a Canucks fan, but seldomly watch the NHL. I find it hard to sit through a game. For business reasons I get an opportunity to attend many Flames games, which I mostly avoid. Unless it's a good friend or something, I don't go.

Stanley Cup this year... flip a coin... I'll go the Devils, again. Ask me tomorrow and I would pick a different team, no real dominant teams in the NHL anymore.

I don't think they should ban fighting but should do something about the cheap shots. If you go toe to toe then thats fine your both ready let the best man win. I you break a stick over the guys head or punch him in the throat when he is not ready then yeah charge him.

Hockey is a rough sport and its part of the game to get physical with you oposite team. Last week I had a guy yell at me because I was to rough with him on the boards..the puck was at our feet and we were fighting for it.
He is 6.3 and 230, I am 5.8 and 150.. the guy was a wimp.. if he got mad at that then he should take up knitting.
He later said I was right, its just pushing not fighting..

If your not going to play hard then don't bother..Fighting is another story.

I think they should take the staged fights out of the game. When both teams send their goon line out and two guys fight because of what happened five shifts ago. IMO that has to go.

Spontaneous fights, where two guys drop the gloves. I am ok with.

Unfortunately the "respect" discussion is true. I even notice it playing adult rec hockey. My league team we have had numerous fights, spears, butt-ends, hits from behind etc... all of us have jobs to go to, it amazes me to see it happen.

Oddly enough the pick-up hockey I play on Monday nights, you never see any of this, and I would say the calibre is actually better than my league team.

So it's not part of the "game" it's part of the "mentality".

CHOKE:eek:

I thought the guys would be on top of the game last night but looks like they lost some gas..too bad.

Do you think the Leafs are going to get into the play offs?
Right now it looks like it may not happen to me, they still have my support but the wagon is getting pretty slow... jumping speed.

Crucial game for the Leafs this afternoon on TSN. A win puts them tied with Rangers for 7th. Leap frogging the Habs.
I'm a loyal and die hard leafs fan..........but they are so infuriating sometimes.
Saturday night they win in overtime.....which shouldnt have happened they were up four to friggin one and then yesterday a total blow out.
I think its sadly a case of too little too late. Ferguson and Maurice dont know what the hell they are doing......they should have acquired a goalie instead of yannick perreault. And that in itself just tells how indecisive they are with this being his third stint in Toronto.......beyond comprehension.............and they keep trading away their young prospects. Just watch, Bell will be a solid defenseman ........while we are stuck watching Bryan McCabe and his bonehead plays.
40 years and counting without a cup.
Maybe before I die?

I don't know about the goalie. The first two goals Raycroft didn't even have a chance on, the second was a defensive break down. I think they should have grabbed Roberts, he wanted to come back.

I know........he brings a lot of depth to that team. I think the penguins will actually do well if they tune up their defensive game...their power play is wicked, Toronto is familiar with that stat..... and the leafs caught them a little flat footed saturday night. I'm hoping for the best though.......it will probably come down to that Montreal game next Saturday.
Thats the thing about us leaf fans our hope never falters... well sometimes it does....hahaha.

I hope you mean fighting. Hitting is violent, if they take it out of the game they might as well call it figure skating.
...fighting, certainly, although violent, intentional, unneccessary hits should be outlawed, as well. we teach our children that violence is unnaceptable and anti-social, not to mention illegal, then we take them to a hockey game...

The Leafs stink. And they'll continue to stink until someone comes in and cleans house like Brian Colangelo did with the Raptors. As it stands, however, the whole organization seems to have a culture of "good enough" from the top down and organizations like that don't win. It's a miracle they've done as well as they have this season.
