    David Perron

    Just saw the video on Sportsnet of David with the Cup back home. Looks like he had a ball hockey game/tourney in his hometown and all his buddies were drinking beer from the Cup. Saw his brother Pascal in the video as well.
  2. League game tonight. We're getting thrashed. Off night for almost everyone. They score the 6-1 goal with :10 left. As the ref skates past the bench to the timekeeper I yell over..."just run it ref". No one on my bench really reacts, they head toward the faceoff, and I hop over the boards...look back at the ref and say again "just run it". He nods...and I realize he is. Clock is at :06 and counting. This is not entirely uncommon. I've heard and seen teams run down a clock in a blowout like that before. I tap the goalie on the pads and do the "good game, good game, good game" handshake line. I grab my shit and just head to the room. There is one woman on my team who has lots to say about everything. Apparently, she says to our captain (Rob) on the way to the rooms ...'Who's the captain of this team, you or Matt?" and huffs and puffs and goes into her room (the woman change separate from us). Rob comes into our room and asks "What was that about??" I said "Oh, she must have been pissed that I told the ref to run the clock...Sorry if I overstepped, but it's 6-1...and in this league, who the eff cares??" Rob says "I don't give a shit...you can make whatever call you want on the ice". So, I ask the MSH Nation...what say you? Dick move or no?
  3. Is it embroidery? You could pull it carefully with a small knife or stitch puller...or, just use a fabric marker.
  4. Harry Howell. Hamilton born, NHL/WHA defenseman. Won the Norris in '66-67 and commented something to the effect of: "I'm glad I won this now, that kid in Boston is going to be pretty good". Bobby Orr won the next 8 http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=2382 An absolute gentleman and great ambassador for the game.

    2018 Third Jerseys

    Beautiful jersey. Should have gone with green helmets though.

    Anyone else watch the Valentimes special? Would have been fun to be in the writers room for some of those exchanges during the speed dating scenes.

    2018 Third Jerseys

    I just saw a highlight pack and the numbers on those TB jerseys are way darker grey than they appear in that pic. Has to be awful for the broadcast guys up high. I remember when the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) had great letters on baby blue jerseys...or other way around, I can't remember. A bunch of the Leagues play by play guys complained and I'm pretty sure the league made them stop wearing them.
  8. Not anything exotic or overly fancy, but decided my Escape was bigger than I needed, so I traded it in a couple weeks ago for a Focus. Has the winter package. Heated seats, steering wheel and mirrors, with remote start. All features I've never had in a vehicle before, so I'm enjoying it. Also enjoying filling up for less than $40 and having that last over a week.

    The only good thing about that is the gloves.

    2018-19 Toronto Maple Leafs

    Massive bonuses every July 1. His base salary hardly goes up. $750,000-800,000/year, I think. He gets $15M+ July 1/19.

    Tattoo

    Been trying to come up with a cool way to do #11. Decided on the stone.stamped looked.

    Was this a dick move or not?

    I appreciate the support from the MSHers. Not sure if her biggest complaint was the run off (she has been around this league long enough to know it happens) or just the fact that I'm not the captain. Either way, I dont plan on bringing it up to her unless she says something.

    Vegas Golden Knights

    They could have easily gone with black helmets, and I love that they didn't. The gray helmets look so good. I also love that Nashville wears yellow helmets. Too many white/black or white/blue combos. Nice to see some teams going in different directions.
  14. My girlfriend dropped off new skates I bought last weekend to be profiled. I told her to ask for a "9' radius, +1 forward"... Which is what I have been skating on since I got my old skates way back in '07. She texted me after and said they kept asking her: "Are you sure that's what he wants...that is like 25 year old technology" I replaced the steel a couple years ago and at that time, no one suggested that it was obsolete or old to do a profile of that nature. I skated on them last week, stock off the shelf with no profile and I felt like I was skating for the first time in years. I just want these new ones to feel like my old ones did.

    An All Star Game idea

    So, people always seem to have a lengthy list of "snubs" when it comes to all star selections. Fact is, there are not enough spaces for every worthy player to go and the current format 3 on 3 really doesn't allow for additional roster spots. During the last World Cup, the Young Guns teams of Europe/North America seemed to catch everyone's attention, and realistically were probably the best part of that event. So, why not do the same with the ASG? 6 teams instead of 4. Each division is represented, then you make 2 teams comprised of remaining age 23 and under players from Europe and North American (regardless of what division/conference they are from). You may have to alter the length of the games to make up for the extra teams, but it would allow more players to make it, and if you let the initial 4 division based teams be voted by fans, it creates an interesting dynamic where a NA team featuring Mitch Marner, could end up facing an Atlantic Team with Austin Matthews. Maybe give the teams representing the divisions with the top team in each Conference a bye, so it limits the number of extra games you have to play. Who knows...I'm just throwing stuff against the wall here. Anything stick??

    An All Star Game idea

    I bet that is why they have Weber as the Habs "Last Man In" choice and not Domi or Gallagher. They want him in the hardest shot comp.

    Santa bring you any sweet presents?

    My GF got me a GC for Pro Hockey Life. Not sure what I'll replace with that. But I'm thinking gloves or elbows.

    What size did you go with? Ordering clothes online always worries me because things vary style to style. I have 2 large golf shirts from different companies. One fits like a medium, the other XL. So frustrating.

    Everything looks fantastic. And the prices are great. I am definitely in for a couple things.

    Is skate profiling "old technology"?

    I don't even recall how I came to skate on that profile to begin with. I bought a pair of skates that had been done custom and returned...so not only did I get a great deal, but I got someone else's setup. I think that might have been it. The guy told me what was on the blades when I bought it. But, it is what I have gotten used to. I will definitely look into what JR is doing now. Thanks. [EDIT]: This does mean the white 9k's have been retired (at least temporarily). Now I just gotta get rid of the matte black E700. haha

    Thanks. I'll see how this one goes, but I may end up buying new steel and getting JR to work his magic.

    Summer Jam Really Big Jersey and Really Big Socks

    What is the tag size? Haven't had a chance to actually measure mine. It is huge, but wearable. (I have a black from that event). When I saw these, I was hoping for White. I'll take it if it says Med on the tag.
