Sure..........

It's the Playoffs for Pete's sake - Weber might get a $ 2,500 fine ( the max allowed by the NHLPA ) but he will not miss a shift. You Red Wings fans need to toughen up - Gordie Howe would be ashamed of your whining. :tongue:


When Steve fucking Yzerman posts on his fb page that hes lost all respect for Weber, its more than "whining" imo. Besides that, what was that hit for? Was he that afraid of Zetty? Sometimes I wish Joey & Bob were still on the team.

And Bob, you know damn well youd be here whining and more if it happened to one of your Bruins.

OK - a couple of things:

- Steve fucking Yzerman should be worrying about his own team instead of what's going on between Detroit and Nashville. You know - the team that finished 21st overall in a 30 team league. Besides - if Yzerman didn't say anything about the hit or said that it was OK would you still be bitching and moaning about it ????
- that hit was for the rest of the series just like every check that Kronwall and every other Detroit player made tonight.
- if it happened to a Bruin player ( and can you please try to name another team in the NHL that has been hurt more than the Boston Bruins by head shots over the last few years ) I'd be upset about it but there's no use whining about it. F*ck it - go to Nashville and take it out on Weber just don't ask me to bail your Red Wing lovin' ass out of jail.

Lol, show me ANYWHERE where I "bitched & moaned about it", please? I agreed w/Sin & YOU got butthurt about it apparently. Cmon Bob, show me. I then mentioned that Yzerman said something, and you got butthurt. I then simply asked what was the point of the hit on Zetterberg, as Im not the only one who apparently didnt like the hit & YOU take that as "bitching & moaning"? Lol, a question asked about a hit somehow equates to "bitching & moaning"? Ok.


I dont care where they finished, I didnt expect the Wings to go far in the playoffs anyways. Stop being so butthurt:tongue::tongue::tongue:

Refs had a rough night last night. The first Philly goal was SO offside, and that got them back in the game. No excuses for Pitt, they should have shut them down but that was a turning point.
Full marks to Briere for an amazing looking goal (i love scoring that same goal in pick up hockey) and then and then screaming "Fu*kin' right!" right afterwards.
Go Pitt!

Really enjoyed the two early games last night as I flipped back and forth between them. I had to get up too early this morning to watch the LA-Van game though.

I also was looking forward to watching the CSNBC feed of the Detroit-Nashville game last night, but right at the top of the hour when the game was to start they flipped over to the CNBC World feed which obviously wasn't showing the game. I should have known that was going to happen due to the Canadian broadcaster's (CBC, TSN) rights to show the games in Canada. They do though show the  games that play on the main NBC network during the weekends and during the Finals...Or at least they always have and better continue this year. I enjoy watching the U.S. commentators a lot as it gives me a break from the Canadian ones which if there is a Canadian team in the series, is all..."Rah, Rah, Rah, Go Canada, Go Canucks, Go Sens." Blah. Even with The Leafs not in the playoffs they'll still talk about that damn team ad-nauseum. You can see why I like the Yank commentators now. I must say though I prefer The Canadian camerawork and broadcasts overall...Way better than the U.S. versions when it comes to hockey. Too bad I couldn't wtach the Canadian feed of the game with the U.S. commentators dubbed over it. maybe I'll try it tonight with two T.V.'s but I'd imagine there will be a delay of a few seconds between both feeds.

(2) Boston vs (7) Washington

Games 1 and 3 will be available to those viewers in Ontario that have access to CHEX. F*cking CBC would rather show the Senators on a National basis instead of the defending Stanley Cup Champions. Trust me - there are more Bruin fans west of Ontario than there are Senators fans.

So I get to watch the defending Stanley Cup Champions begin the long trek to defending their Championship on a live video stream on the CBC site. :shock: I finally got back the expected BS response to my e-mail.


My E-Mail to CBC Sports

It has just come to my attention that due to a scheduling conflict with the Ottawa vs New York series that Games 1 and 3 of the Boston versus Washington series will not air on CBC. You do realize that Boston is the defending Stanley Cup Champion and that Washington has one of the NHL's highest profile players on its roster ????  I fully understand that there is pressure on CBC to showcase Canadian teams but unless this somehow gets fixed there will be a lot of upset Canadian hockey fans. Trust me - there are many more Boston Bruin fans west of Ontario then there are Ottawa Senators fans. Please let me know if a solution to this problem can be reached.


Response from CBC

Thank you for your recent emails to CBC Sports concerning the
distribution of Round One games of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs on CBC
Television stations across Canada.

During the first round of the playoffs when there are many more
matchups than the later rounds, there are often conflicts when two or
more games to which CBC Sports holds television broadcast rights are
scheduled to be played at the same time. As it is not physically
possible to transmit two games simultaneously fully across the country,
we must decide how to make both games accessible to as many of our
viewers as possible, keeping in mind that our first priority, as
Canada's national public broadcaster, is to make availagble those series
that include Canadian teams to as many of our audience members as possible.

In this case, we decided to broadcast the Senators/Rangers game across
our network and live stream on CBCSports.ca and to air games 1 and 3 of
the Boston/Washington series on one of our affiliate stations, CHEX as
well as live stream on CBCSports.ca. Although CHEX is an affiliate
station, it is available on a wide number of cable and satellite
services, which is the means by which the overwhelming majority of our
viewers receive their CBC Television signal.

We do recognize that CHEX is not available to all viewers across the
country. And we do realize your own frustration with this situation,
however, we believe this was the best possible solution to a problem
that defies a perfect answer. We hope this information has been helpful
and thank you for contacting CBC.

Sincerely,

Denis Andrychuk
Communications Officer
CBC Audience Relations

What did you expect?  With only 2 out of 7 Canadian teams in the playoffs they damned well better play the Sens game nationally. 

You should really be mad at TSN, they get to pick 3rd and 4th series after CBC does, they didn't deem Boston Washington to be as big as Pitt/Philly.

Actually the pecking order went CBC, CBC, TSN, CBC, TSN, CBC, TSN and TSN. I was hoping they might do a swap like last year ( the Boston vs Philly series was split between CBC and TSN ) but TSN2 is airing their own TSN Skins Curling thing tonight so that isn't an option. So yes - my anger is aimed straight at the CBC for not thinking far enough ahead to realize that there was going to be a lot of backlash about their scheduling decision and that they needed to come up with a better solution then they eventually came up with.

I haven't heard any backlash besides yours, I assume Bruins fans are upset.  I couldn't care less about the Bruins/Caps series though, would rather see Sens/Rags.

If you are just fucking with Stingmark fine, but you can't compare grabbing a player by the helmet and ramming his head into the glass when the game is over to a legal hit by Nick Kronwall.

Seriously, the league has suspended players for targeting the head on checks, but grabbing a guy by the helmet with two hands and banging his head into the glass is OK.

You are going to have to work a hell of a lot harder to convince me that was OK.

At least on a check you could convince me you were trying to make a clean hit and the guy moved or ducked his head, or you misjudged the impact point, but the only intent of Shea Webber was to injure Zetterberg. There was no attempt to make a hockey play, especially since the game was over.

I'm not trying to be a homer, but how is this different than McSorley on Brashear? The player used a foreign object to smash another player's skull. It is far worse than Bertuzzi on Martin. $2500? Shit that's the table stake at my local poker game. Wow! Just Wow!
