NHL 2016-17

We shall start with some World Cup of Hockey talk.

Tomorrow will be the first game ill get to watch. Finland @ USA

Probably gonna pull a kapernick and take a knee on team USA. Not because of injustice, but because they snubbed KESSEL.

Think I will root for team North America instead because of Matt Murray.

Also already purchased a season pass for NHL.TV. Im'a watch all the games.

I watched parts of the usa vs canada exhibition game the other day on espnu.

Its like an all star game. You wont be let down just cause kessel isnt there. Although youre right, thats a fucking joke.

I'm excited to finally be watching some games again. Even if it does seem like last season ended just last month for us Penguins fans.

Just to clarify I meant the offensive skill is like an all star game.

Its way more intense than one though cause guys play D and throw checks.

Kessel got wrist surgery so he wouldn't be there anyways but I agree, it's like Hall not being on Canada. Stupid

Last night's game was okay. Team USA dominated, but it was still fun to watch. It has me all hyped for the real tournament games!

And Hall was passed over again for fucking Ryan O'Reilly. Canada hates Hall.

The new arena opens in Edmonton this season boys. It's fucking insane. I never went to the open house because fuck that noise but the arena is out of this world. It looks like a fucking spaceship too.


A beer is $14, a Gatorade is $7.50, a fucking CHOCOLATE BAR(or candy bar as you Yanks call them) is $5.00.

The prices are absolutely fucked. The owner made a deal with the city that if he put in another 100 mil he could keep 100% of the revenue from the concessions. People act like this scumbag saved the Oilers, he raping them for every penny they have now

If it's in a wrapper and has any sort of chocolate involved, it's a chocolate bar

Having a north American and a European team makes this tournament a joke.

I disagree. NA is going to be exciting as hell to watch. I'm cheering for them to win it all

Why is it a joke? Seriously asking here. I've never watched a World Cup before so I don't know about anything before this year.

Its team of players not good enough to make the canada or usa rosters. Literally a B team. It shouldnt even exist unless its roster was all guys from mexico, belize, costa rica, etc.

Not good enough and not old enough, correct? There is a cap of 23 years of age.

I wonder if hockey is popular at all in the places you named off.

Murray looking great early

That's exactly right. Anyone 23 or under must be on NA. There would have been at least 10 guys named to Canada/US

Team North America mopping the floor with Finland.

Maatta, come on bro.
