@Claude Giroux's Arresting Officer @mwn3d Hm...you're right. I don't know where I got the 5 idea but I think the new icing faceoff rule still only lets one guy take the faceoff. He gets a warning and then it's a penalty if he does it again.

No 5 was already the rule. If everyone on the team gets kicked out that's a penalty and has been. The new rule is just for after icing. If the guy cheats he gets a warning and gets to try again. If he cheats again it's a penalty.

@Claude Giroux's Arresting Officer The guy who takes the faceoff after the icing won't get kicked out when he's a dick. He'll get a warning and then if he's a dick again he'll go to the box. Then it's a penalty on them so the faceoff moves to the other side. So after an icing you get one guy and if he keeps trying to cheat then you get a penalty. For normal faceoffs it seems like you still have to go through all 5 guys before you get a penalty.

i was really thinking NHL refs were the best in the 4 major sports until the playoffs. then i remembered that these refs also suck. the announcers dont always help either. youll hear things like "you dont make that call in OT" or "playoff hockey baby. let em play!". it really sucks that "as long as theyre consistent" within a game people are happy. shouldnt they be consistent across games? throughout a season? isnt that what we should strive for?

broken penguin stick on the rangers last PP and what did they do? they sent the puck to the other side of the ice. i know their power play is bad but they need to at least act like theyre trying.

rule 53.2:

When the player discards the broken portion of a stick or some other object by tossing it or shooting it to the side of the ice (and not over the boards) in such a way as will not interfere with play or opposing player, no penalty will be imposed for so doing. When moving a stick that is not broken, no penalty shall be assessed as long as it does not interfere with the play and the player who lost said stick is not attempting to retrieve it, otherwise an interference penalty must be assessed.

i guess they figured he was going to pick it up (he was).

def gotta keep day-pray. im as excited about him as i am about beau bennett. we cant be giving up slightly experienced d-men anyway. orpik and martin are getting old. id rather have a defenseman pairing locked in with a few dozen games of experience than a experienced defenseman and a fresh fish while losing prospects.

@j-nine@66BuriesItyour MAC address doesnt have anything to do with the location of your computer. it does have something to do with the manufacturer of your network hardware and some other things. changing MAC addresses wouldnt help in this situation. your IP is pretty tightly coupled with your location (or at least thats part of the design for IP blocks). check out this (old) map of the internet to see where certain addresses are: http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/map_of_the_internet.jpg.

i wonder how much the pens have advanced concussion research and treatment with all of the money being poured into it in recent years.

when tyler myers was a stumbling idiot and destroyed malkins knee i didnt hear anyone saying he did it on purpose. we said things like "myers cant skate" and "tylers myers sucks at hockey". so if people want to say things like that about matt cooke for this then fine. it looked to me like he was making a hit by pushing high on karlssons back/side and threw himself off-balance. his left foot was in front and he was falling back so he lifted his front foot. they ran into the boards and got squished together as cooke regained his balance and put his foot back down.


no one with an intent to injure would think to cut someones leg with their skate. if you want to hurt someone in hockey youll fight them, trip them, elbow them, board them, slash them, or just hit them really hard. in the heat of the moment no one would come up with the idea to use their skate. its too awkward.
