    Sounds like the right thing to do.

    It makes me laugh. But you might be surprised the number of people it bothers… “He is making it all about him.” “Nobody wants to know who the stripes are, just do your job” etc. I think he is just trying to make people laugh, and have a little fun. You have to “read the room” and know you can’t do that with certain teams/games/situations. I think he knows that and picks his spots well. It still bugs a lot of people. I mean, someone in the NHL, let alone a referee has a personality? Or has fun working? There are plenty of people who do like it though, so that’s good.

    For example:

      I only hate it when he’s disallowing a Wild goal, or allowing one against them. :mrgreen:

        The NHL is ultimately an entertainment product and that probably has something to do with why they hire more colorful refs like him. Personally, Wes telling guys to fuck off once in a while or doing stuff like that is the least of the NHL’s reffing problem.

        Well… GE did specify that “He” had a problem, so, the correction is valid.

        Doesn’t mean her list is worth a damn, though.

        That’s why I corrected the correction.

        Overall from that article I would say like 20+ NHL jerseys are solid to great. So hard to rank them but I’ll always be biased to the winged wheel.

        St Louis scores 2 goals in the final 46 seconds to beat Dallas 2-1.

        This is the Dallas coach’s reaction.

          We still can’t get answer if they ever even made the Wild one yet or not. 😬

          I hope he does well and makes the Wild regret their decision. Hell, I hope he scores a hat trick against us next Monday. :mrgreen:

                Isn’t J22 Chuck Fletcher? Maybe he’s struggling in Philly cuz he’s still taking time to sign on here and wish badly on every ex Gopher in the pros.

                  He did that to Mark Stone earlier this year as well. You can take a player out of the F’in Hawks uniform but you can’t take the cheap shot artist out of the player

                        Probably not a lot of Yotes games on Friday or Saturday evenings.. if this happens. Isn’t there a new rink in Quebec?

                        Can’t imagine players are excited about playing in a 5000 seat arena.

                          They’d be a failure in literally any city under this gong show ownership group. The NHL looks stupid in this whole deal for getting some penny pinching owners who run the franchise like some consulting firm.

                          At some point (two years ago would have been ideal) does the NHL step in and run the franchise? They must have some recourse when they see this happening….

                          I was listening to a podcast and Elliott Friedman said it’s a possibility the NHL buys back the Yotes and sells them to a different owner but auctions them in a way in which the league would also get an ‘expansion fee’ which is an interesting thought. Videotron Centre in Quebec is just waiting for an NHL tenant. Have to think Houston excites the league more from a TV revenue perspective. Building is ready there too.

                          Seems like time is running out in the desert.

                          This is filthy from Zegras. May he have been able to see through the blindfold? Probably. May he have put some extra wax or something on his stick? Sure. It’s still pretty good. The replay angle really shows it well.

                          Will the skills competition be replayed anywhere other than the NHL network? I don’t get that channel.

                          There are a bunch of videos of it on you tube from SportsNet Canada’s coverage. They are divided into each skill.

                              I’m guessing that was end of the 2nd period, given the scrum that happened at the end of the game at the opposite end of the rink that was the main post above.

                              It was during one of the commercial breaks in the period. That’s why the Bruins staff member is on the ice with the trash can full of snow.

                              Not sure the exact timing, looks like the end of the period. Pittsburgh goalie scooped up the puck to toss it into the stands… Marchand comes over and knocks the puck off the stick, grabs it and apparently tossed it across the ice (hitting a Bruins staff member, from one comment I saw)

                              I’m guessing that was end of the 2nd period, given the scrum that happened at the end of the game at the opposite end of the rink that was the main post above.


                              It was during one of the commercial breaks in the period. That’s why the Bruins staff member is on the ice with the trash can full of snow.

                              That makes sense. Just saw the short clip and wasn’t sure when it happened.

                                  They’d potentially punish some fourth liner but stars who step over the line mostly get slaps on the wrist, even as repeat offenders like Marchand. This article does a good job explaining it:

                                  This resonates so strongly with the BoG because the key players, and to a lesser extent the key teams, are considered the league’s financial lifeblood. The risk that those players could be put out of action for a while scares them enough that the rules are different when it comes to them
