NHL 2014-2015 Season

postby Derek » 09/22/14 @ 09:59

Going to beat phillyb™ to creating this thread, preseason starts tonight for the Flyers and the Rangers!

This isn't looking too good, the Flyers lost Timonen with health issues, I don't imagine he'll be back.

And then Giroux gets hurt inappropriately touching Canadian police officers in the first day of practice...

So yeah, GO FLYERS!

I FUCKING LOVE YOU!
thank you for making this thread.
i'm considering going to the game tonight - rangers and devils.

i heard about timonen - sounds serious too. wish him all the best even though he's a flyer.

rangers had some really interesting free agency signings in the off season.
they also picked up some great kids - hayes and duclair in particular.
i'm so fucking excited for hockey, it's not even phunny.

rocked a rangers shirt yesterday to the bar during sunday night football.

totally rocking a rangers shirt today! FUCK YES HOCKEY!!!!!!!!

It's a shame about Timonen, he's apparently having serious blood clot issues. They just gave him a one year extension but I think he'll probably be done for good.

The Flyers off-season was pretty quiet other than Hartnell leaving. Sad to see him go, but I understand why he was traded. Hopefully Umberger will be a solid addition to the team.

They did re-sign my favorite goon, Rinaldo, to a 2 year extension. Hopefully that'll result in some good physical match-ups. :hockeycheck:


I was down at the Eagles-Skins game yesteryday (What a game!) and it made me realize I need to get to more hockey games this year.

I'm definitely interested but there may be a potential move in my near future. Would still be doable, just might limit my options.

Last night's game was good looking from what I caught, I missed the first period. Both teams seemed to be playing well and there was just enough jostling and physical contact to make a rivalry game enjoyable.

In a few weeks I'll be pretty close to the Hershey Bears, I'm going to have to try and make it to some games.

I'm in a tight spot. My new roommate does not have internet or cable. I told him if he wanted me to rent his extra room, we will be getting internet and most likely cable. So meow it's looking like I won't be able to talk him into the price of cable, I'll have to find some other way to watch Flyers games...

We WILL be getting internet, but probably not cable. I think I'm going to get NHL Gamecenter and run a VPN to watch in market games.

I see what you did there :lol:

I'd love to talk about the race thing in hockey sometime. Personally, I think black people not liking/watching/playing hockey because it's full of white people makes about as much sense as white people not liking/watching/playing football because it's full of black people.

DUDE!!!
anthony duclair - 19 year old black kid - ON THE RANGERS! we're happy as shit to have him. should be a good goal scorer.

i don't think race has MUCH to do with why people don't watch a certain sport. i say this as a white man who doesn't watch basketball and doesn't really get into football. but it's not cause the athletes are black. it's cause basketball has too much scoring and football has no action.

baseball has black people - i'll watch some good baseball games. it's quite strategic.

i think people not getting into hockey is the same reason people don't get into soccer here. it's too patient.
people would rather play checkers than chess.

For black folks, I think I disagree. I might be mistaking the symptom for the actual problem, but the read I've always had on why black people don't like hockey is because they think it's a "white people" sport. Tied into that tag is simple economic reality, though that only covers the ability to participate in it (depending on the market, a hockey ticket should be easier to acquire than football or basketball, I'd imagine). I've never played a single second of organized hockey in my life, and that hasn't stopped me from enjoying it, so I see economics as a cop-out, and lean back on the way black people see hockey as a sport black people don't participate in.

You mean the scoring is too low? I think that's only because a goal is only worth one point. If you compare the number of actual touchdowns scored during a given week (not points) and goals scored, they're probably not that different.

Seriously...I think when Shero and Bylsma got fired they took Fleury's shock collar on the way out. He just can't get it in his head that he SUCKS at playing the puck.

At least the Pens won :)

I think they could win the Central, but that division's gonna be a wringer. My call: probably the most competitive division in the NHL this year.

Montreal kind of scares me right meow, too. I picked them out of the East because Boston's too beat up (and I think Boychuk will be missed more than anyone guessed) and who knows what the Pens will do.

Oh, one more thing...CBJ is 1-0-0. Ryan Johansen had better be worth all the crap Columbus went to to sign him...
