    No and they've played garbage in all those games. Too many turnovers. But it'll be 6-3 by Saturday. Chicago will destroy them.

    You know, I'm so glad your avatar is Tywin Lannister because I could totally hear Charles Dance saying exactly that.

    Good lord, another awful hit. This one is probably closer to the Boyle hit, Kronwall looked bad and the announcer was pretty atrocious too.

    Wow. The complete lack of empathy of that one announcer is absolutely appalling. "Taste of his own medicine?" A man is down on the ice from getting hit. Wow man. Just wow.

    See NHL, hybrid icing doesnt solve anything you tools. What's it gonna take? A death to change to no touch? Probably.

    Kronwall was barely moving when the announcer started into his diatribe.

    The players want no touch. You have to let the owners know it's what the fans want too.

    Shanahan's lack of consistency continues to amaze me. A measly 5 games!?!

    Yet Clarkson gets 10 for jumping off the bench in pre season. Yeah ok. So dumb. You can almost break someone's neck and get 5 games.

    Olli Jokinen just scored a really cool goal. Caught a massive rebound in midair and knuckled it in.

    We are talking about a man that let a lockout go on for half a season and lost an entire season to an earlier lockout.

    Bettman has little to do with it. The owners are the ones that lockout the players and employees.

    There has been 3 lockouts in the NHL and Bettman was a part of all 3, and he was a part of a lock out for the NBA, not a coincidence eh? :p

    He's more like a joint PR spokesperson between the owners and players. He has no control over them. The players ask for safer rules, conditions, more money, etc. and the owners say you guys won't be allowed in the building to work until you give up or compromise. Sometimes it's just the owners disagreeing on stuff with eachother. The owners have all the power.

    The Leafs have a long way to go to be competitive against the Hawks.

    Well, if you want to go to the mattresses and lock players out, I'd say he's the right tool for the job. :p

    I honestly think hockey has been better after the lockout. More even playing field for teams and players are making more money than ever before. Sure their tv deal is on the wrong network but I think the league is doing fine.

    That ESPN 30 for 30 on Spano was epic.

    Finally the Leafs show up. They had been invisible the past three games. The second period on is the real Leafs. Where was that team before?!
