I have an honest question for /hoc/. How invisible are the Colorado Avalanche to you? No love or hate for the team. They aren't any good and also not the worst. They are just invisible. Their whole TV blackout thing doesn't help.
I was just thinking about Jarome Iginla and how he has, to me at least, fallen off the face of the Earth ever since going there and I was thinking about how fucking disgusting it would be if he retired there as a nobody.
>voracek now has 48 shots without a goal
they're currently the least relevant team in the league, tied with the hurricanes
the yotes got themselves max domi and that makes them noticeable
at least they have an outdoor game this year

Dallas Stars were 9-2 and the leafs were 1-7 and they just beat the Dallas Stars. Not just beat but almost raped/destroy them. Everyone got a point basically. They helped developed the career of the younger NHL guys (Rielly, Kadri, etc).
Also them being 9-2 meant that they were theoretically better than the Canucks and therefore by beating the best team in the league at the time before they faced us we have now proved that we are better than any team below them including the canucks.
The leafs may not win this year, but this win proved they are better than the teams that do.

I liked John for the two albums he was on (Gifts is one of the best songs on LTMR), but Propagandhi wouldn't have come into their own without the addition of Todd. There's no other band that's really doing their punk/thrash metal thing quite like them, and the fact that they're big hockey fans just adds to the appeal.
Yeah man, I talked hockey with Chris when I saw them during the failed states tour. I've loved Prop for close to 20 years now. Today's Empires is still holds a special place in my heart. Purine Hall of Fame is probably my all time favorite song.
On a side note, I remember hearing a voice that sounded familiar during the credits of Wedding Crashers and realizing it was John and the Weakerthans. tfw Propagandhi will never be featured in a major motion picture.
>You will never play for the NHL team you grew up watching
At least until his contract comes up then probably a year in the KHL in front of family and friends. He probably doesn't have much left in the tank especially with all the injuries after a few years. Detroit is about to fall back to average-above average for a while but I lived through the Dead Wings years so whatever.
As long as >we don't go full Edmonton, fuck it man.
And while that year was undoubtedly also our year, this year is considerably yearier
Probably easier tbh, they tend to drive imports
>The Tampa Bay Lightning could be working on a deal to free up salary-cap room to re-sign captain Steven Stamkos. That’s the suggestion from Erik Erlendsson of The Tampa Tribune, reporting the Lightning could try moving defenseman Matt Carle.
>Erlendsson notes Carle, a healthy scratch for Saturday’s 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, was the subject of trade rumors for the past two weeks. The 31-year-old blueliner is the Lightning’s highest-paid defenseman ($5.5-million annual cap hit), with a contract that runs through 2017-18 and contains a modified no-trade clause.

>tfw this is the best sports moment I've had as a Canucks fan
Will we ever feel that good again Canucksbros?
Nah nothing will ever come close to that moment except maybe the bieksa goal to get to the cupcup.
I bought a burrows jersey because of this.
>tfw nearly bought a hdogson jersey
Wew Lad. How's he doing anyway?
man this rivalry was so much fun. I miss it so much.
I'll never feel the same way as I did after that first cup win, after beating the Canucks in hard fought series every year.
Winning honestly feels routine now. It's surreal.
probably when im like 30 something say if this teams youngsters bloom into stars accordingly.
im 25 years old now and can honestly say that this team most likely wont get another chance for another 5 years minimum.. The magic is gone.
I miss the days of hating the hawks. Now I couldnt give a shit. Were back to our old roots and hating Calgary again which is pretty fun.
You think Van-Chi give credit to eachother out of respect nowadays?
>implying this wasn't infinitely superior
As much as I fucking despised the Hawks, I'd give everything just to watch that entire rivalry unfold again (expect this time the Canucks winning in 2010.
When a rivalry where the two franchise have no prior vendettas against each other and no really dirty play/line brawl to ignite it, that shit was the rawest and most emotionally charged rivalry I'll probably ever experience.
These days, with most of the cast changed it obviously doesn't feel the same. When the Hawks won the cup this year I felt completely indifferent.
Almost felt happy for them tbqh

Burrows' goal was better, but watching the Canucks come back to tie the game with 14 seconds left, then win it in OT to go to the Cup Final was probably the ultimate Nucks feel
>ducks and canucks making it to the WCF
same division aside, they both awful desu senpai
How can we revive the Canucks-Hawks rivalry?
I actually went to Disney right after the Canucks beat the Hawks and I got into a verbal argument with some guy about whether the hawks or the canucks had a better future.
I wish I could do that again. Please give me the old Canucks back, its not fun playing against the Kings every year.
You now remember Luc Bourdon
>refs not wearing helmets

They are really bad at promoting themselves.
And to answer your question, only one of them gave us an olympic gold. Sure, not as relevant av the ones from 98-, but still as relevant as any olympic golds you've ever won.
Landeskog - Zetterberg - Nyquist
Steen - Bäckström - Hörnqvist
Stålberg - Kruger - Fast (hustle line)
Karlsson - OEL
Hedman - Strålman
Why Gustavsson and Lindbäck?
A guy with a statue outside of Air Canada centre.
>not knowing who he is
How plebian can one person be?
How can a team be so keked that they have a player from another team on their front page?
The question was "to win a game right now". In a game I would like a hutle-line. And it feels like the Sedins haven't been on top of their game this season. So Zetterberg and Bäckström gets the other two center-spots. And as everyone knows, they need to play together.
>No more glorious Red Wings/Avalanche level rivalries will ever happen again
He actually centers currently. Babcock, and Blashill as well play him as a Center rather often. Mike used to swap between Pavel/Hank being together and splitting them up as 1C/2C. Hank can play either role very well.
Yeah, it looks pretty decent.
He's been looking really good this season. He's been a big reason the red wings haven't lost games with a bigger goal differential more than once.
Ah, alright. Well. Haven Karlsson - OEL with goalies like Gustavsson or Lindbäck on the ice at the same time might be a little risky. But it's a risk I'd take.
There's always time for memes
He seems like the guy who takes banter to heart. I've never seen him get hit hard and cleanly only to skate into the play, he always tries to drop the mitts. He's either blindly proud or absolutely booty blasted
>watched short documentary about planned war cemeteries during the cold war
>ice rinks were to be kept operating so that dead bodies could be kept chilled by placing them on the ice
Fun fact of the day.
In his defense that would fucking hurt a LOT
smacking into the post doesn't hurt as much as you'd think, you could blow on the net and it'll come off. I'd hate to run into the old 70s and 80s nets, they were basically cemented in.
Depends on his strap and how hard he hits it I guess. Cup isn't complete protection.
>and then god said "let there be three teams in California and two more in Florida"
Lets be honest /hoc/
Where should your team go on the
OFFICIAL /hoc/ POWER RANKINGS
I would humbly suggest my beloved Red Wings go on the MEME TIER; their not quite DOO-DOO, and they cant make the NOTHING SPECIAL TIER with the recent performance, but they do meme on good teams from time to time.
We might have different definitions of the tiers, because I would put the red wings in the nothing special-tier.
In a definition och meme tier and nothing special-tier I'd emphasize how interesting/laughable they are, rather than how good they are
I can imagine that they aren't interesting if you're not a fan of them now that they are playing the way they do. The way they play isn't meme, it has just been bad. The players aren't all that meme either t b h, even if there are a couple of pretty decent memes about some of them.
>tfw the Red Wings are going to beat a struggling Bolts tonight
Cool, good luck.
Good point pham
>not used to Swedes shitposting.
That's literally all they do.
Every time Swedes roll in, /hoc/ becomes /int/.
Swedes are by far the worst posters on 4chins because they are unable to handle the bantz and their banter is shit tier.
>Every time Swedes roll in, /hoc/ becomes /int/.
Because everyone else brings up immigration and feminism, yes.
Not saying that swedes don't shitpost, they do. But come on
Wow, you mad bro?
>It beats stopping for fast food somewhere between Utica and Portland, but the Columbus Blue Jackets have the NHL’s strangest travel quirk. They are the only team required to stop and refuel their plane on the way to the West Coast; the Blue Jackets’ 36-year-old McDonnell MC-9-30 can’t make it the entire leg on one tank. On Sunday, that meant a 36-minute stay in Salina, Kansas, en route to San Jose. The Blue Jackets land wherever fuel is cheapest. Sometimes it’s North Dakota. Most often, it’s Kansas. Columbus is one of a handful of NHL teams that owns the team plane - along with Arizona, Florida, San Jose and Detroit. Most teams charter through an airline, such as Air Canada or Delta or Miami Air. Late Columbus owner John H. McConnell bought the plane in 2001 after an inaugural season filled with delays from a charter company. Playing in the West, it used to be a lot more painful, but the Blue Jackets are still hoping for a new plane next season.
>coming close to something cool
top kek where have I heard this before
LIST OF PLAYERS IN THE NHL THAT WILL MAKE IT INTO THE HALL OF FAME
Backstrom is a great player, but Zetterberg is better, friend. Even pre-surgery for his back he was still doing 70-80 point seasons.
7 years older than Backstrom, matches his production, and plays a much more complete, and intelligent game on the ice.
Backstrom has a lot of offensive strength but there isn't really a weak part of Zetterberg's game aside from him not being super physical.
>14 points in 11 games
>on a really struggling Red Wings
>7 points in 8 games
>on a Capitals team that is doing quite well
Both are really good players. But Z has been the better of the two this season.

The local woman who accused National Hockey League star Patrick Kane of rape three months ago has notified the Erie County District Attorney’s Office that she no longer wants to cooperate in the investigation, five sources with knowledge of the case told The Buffalo News on Monday.
The woman has told authorities that the high-profile investigation has caused tremendous stress for her and her family, and that she no longer wishes to participate.

reddit in damage control mode about her filling a civil suit because a trial was too traumatic
Fuck fuck fuck I don't even know how I feel now
On the one hand, its good that this was all fake and that a woman didn't get maliciously taken advantage of
But on the other hand, now we can't meme about patrape kane
I probably have -200 downvotes just for arguing with SJWS about Voynov and how men can change and he left the nation because the best immigration lawyers in the world advised him to leave he did not leave because he wanted to skip out on some anger management classes
can we make this blow in the sjws face somehow now?
They literally ruined the reputation of a man and all but tied the noose around despite no evidence or facts at all.
And I remember on some Blackhawks forums like secondcityhockey, if you said, lets just wait for the facts first, you got banned for being a rape enabling shitlord.
Sjws are a cancer. We need to put them in their place.
>implying most of /hoc/ is not just gif reposts and news reposts from /r/hockey.
Aside from SJW shit I like having internet friends who I chat with in game day threads /r/LosAngelesKings is better IMO than /r/hockey
I was talking about Shitcongo fans on r/hockey that did that. They were trying to overcompensate because he's a Hawks player and make sure they had the right opinion if Kane was charged.
Second city hockey? More like SJW City Hockey. Everyone on the outside always see the nigs shooting each other here as the worst part of Chicago but those of us who actually live here know its the progressive hipster SJW literal faggots infesting the entire northside of the city and suburbs who are the worst and its only going to grow and get worse.
I barely even care anymore. I wish we were both good
who are our rivals now? tampa? laffs? Bombston?
iktfb. This will be the first Wings game I've caught in a week. I usually work 3:00-10:30
I live in Fresno and there are no IRL places can satisfy my hockey autism IRL. All my IRL friends like watching college nigger slam or concussion ball.
Internet forums are the only places where I can find quality hockey discussion on demand, the local sports talk radio only mentions the shorks in passing once every 3 days or so.
Im missing the chance for the wings to prove they arent complete garbage
>yfw the sjws face when Kane got 1st star last night
>When a canadian enters these threads uninvited and shits it up

It's hard work, eh?
That is all sort of fucked up.
>he doesn't lift kegs
>he lifts sandwiches
Fuck that. Production fucking sucks. You sit in a cold ass fucking fridge for 8 hours doing nothing but making salads, chicken, and sandwiches.
I usually work and cut deli/seafood.
Yeah. It gets fun if you work evenings/nights because the store quiets down and all of the management has gone home so you can have a lot more fun while working and as long as you're not a retarded totally offensive cunt customers don't really give a shit either. Evening shifts best shifts.
>tfw I will never work in a deli cutting meat, cheese and whatnot
>tfw I will never taste everything I cut
WinCo, and I'm assuming most delis, actually will fire your ass on the spot if they catch you sampling. It's a massive health code violation and causes all kinds of problems if it becomes a regular problem.
I'll tell you though never to eat or touch roast beef unless it's all natural or "healthy". The processed shit we sell is called deli-rite and when you cut that fucking bag open to slice the meat this fucking awful black sludge oozes out. The shit is fucking disgusting.
Roast beef is shit tier meat if you get it out of delis.
To those saying that Kane needs to sue or that the accuser should be charged
>Of the false conviction, prosecutor Sue Baur said: 'This is the kind of thing that shouldn't happen.'
>But she said that charging Kennedy might discourage victims from coming forward.
Remember, YOUR RIGHTS END WHETE MY FEELINGS BEGIN
>not writing in the mascot for every office
So again, EA should issue a formal apology to Kane.
Dear Mr Patrick Kane, sorry we were such fuckstick morons who couldn't even wait for a facts or evidence to come to light before completely throwing you under the bus and shunning you so that we may appease our 4 SJW consumers
Two-time worst company in the world champions, EA
Suing would be dumb. He really has nothing to gain from it. It's not like she has a ton of money he wants. Public opinion would not be swayed in the least bit. It's best to just let it go and play hockey
Nah, I don't blame them. It's generally corporate policy to distance themselves from anyone under investigation publicly. I stress publicly. They aren't the only ones to do this and they won't be the last.
EA is run by SJWers and are the first to bail if it even looks like you offend women.
Hopefully the sponsors who stood with Kane get some sort of reward because almost always the girl who cries false rape always get the benefit that she's telling the truth.
Those kegs weigh 25 fucking pounds when they are empty. There's no way that neckbeard with a sweater is carrying a full keg, weighing about 150 pounds, in that stance.
