  1. The Venting Spot

    There's a reason why in the beer league/pick up hockey circle that names like "Johnny Try Hard" and "Charlie Hustle" aren't compliments.
  2. The Venting Spot

    You've covered two taboo plays in pick-up hockey; jabbing at the goalie and shooting head high. I'm guessing next will be guys hooking all over the ice and the guy who whacks your stick when you're nowhere near the play.
  3. The Venting Spot

    Because they're still paying DiPietro?

    Judging by his stride, Ovechkin is definitely using something very flat.
  6. Lightning Retiring Lecavalier's Number

    I'm not sure that tenures of 7 and 4 years, respectively, are enough to warrant getting your number in the rafters. It still irks me that the Avs retired Bourque's number.

  8. Stick grip, one or two hands

    When I coached I would have players do all skating drills with a puck on their stick. That taught them to skate with two hands on the stick, keep their heads up with the puck, and learn how to handle the puck at full speed.
  9. Bauer NeuroShield

    Over/under on first lawsuit after a kid passes out and crashes into the boards while wearing one of these?
  10. All Black Bauer Sticks - What Are These?

    They are probably the same as the sticks "made" by companies like Silverback et al. If you can fill out an order form then you can become a stick "manufacturer".
  11. NHL Draft, why so early?

    A college kid getting drafted allows them to attend the NHL team's development camps and rookie camps (so long as they abide by the compensation rules) so that they can gauge where they stand with other prospects and learn what it takes to become a pro. The NHL team will give the guys workout and diet recommendations and will also give the player areas of their game to focus on in order to continue their development. The draft for the most part is about projecting 3-4-5 years down the road. It is a very small percentage of any draft class that jump straight to the NHL in their draft year.

  13. The Venting Spot

    Every team I've seen in these parts that have had one guy pay for the entire team have always been dissolved because guys don't show up.
  14. VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    The thinking is probably that a fit center will cut down on return/tweeks from home tracings.

    Then I guess you're shit out of luck. First world problems.
