I was pretty shocked at how poorly Dougie Hamilton played this past Saturday.

from tsn.ca:




Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith will be sidelined for four to six weeks after he had right knee surgery on Tuesday.

Keith, a two-time Norris Trophy winner, has two assists in six games this season. The team says he had a meniscal tear repaired.

The loss of Keith, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy last season for playoff MVP, is a huge blow for the Stanley Cup champions. They play in one of the NHL's toughest divisions, and every point could make a difference at the end of the year.

Keith is likely headed for long-term injured reserve, giving the Blackhawks some cap relief. Lubomir Visnovsky, a veteran defenceman who was with the team during training camp, could be brought back, or they could promote someone from the minors.

You're not gonna be one of those guys sucking McDavid's cock every time he touches the puck, are you? There's already too many of them on every TSN and Sportsnet hockey show.

Couldn't you take up for Taylor Hall and his he-only-looks-gay lips instead? Dude needs some love.

When you've spent 9 years watching what is basically an AHL team, then yes I'm going to "suck McDavid's cock" when he makes an entire franchise watchable again.  At least he's not forcefully making people suck his cock, or beat up cab drivers, like some teams superstars. 


Fair enough, although you have to give it a few seasons and at least one Stanley Cup before we're sure he won't beat up a cabbie for ten cents.

Anyway poor choice of words on my part describing what must be a glorious time to be an Oiler fan. I don't hate McDavid but the coverage is incredibly overbearing and the Sports networks in Canada really should be ashamed of themselves for kicking the hype machine into overdrive so early into his career.

The curtain has come down on Curtis Glencross' nine-year NHL career.

The 32-year-old announced his retirement Tuesday, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

"We have weighed our options and with the young family I'm enjoying a lot of firsts with them," Glencross said.

Glencross has 2 daughters and an infant son and doesn't see either the KHL or Europe as a viable option.

— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) October 20, 2015
Glencross played 507 games over his career, scoring 134 goals and adding 141 assists. He was undrafted, and played his first full season at 25 in 2007-08, scoring 15 goals and finishing with 25 points for the Columbus Blue Jackets and Edmonton Oilers.

A two-time 20-goal scorer, Glencross enjoyed his most fruitful years with the Calgary Flames, scoring 114 of his 134 goals in red and yellow.

Glencross split last season with the Flames and Washington Capitals, putting up a respectable 35 points in 71 games. However, he was unable to find work this past summer as an unrestricted free agent, signing tryout deals with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Colorado Avalanche, neither resulting in a contract.

Glencross is clearly still an NHL level talent. Wonder if we get to point where older players devalued too much? pic.twitter.com/2u11IXKQQK

— James Mirtle (@mirtle) October 20, 2015
Glencross played in 16 playoff games over his career - 10 last season with the Capitals - and finished with a goal and three assists.

The Kindersley, Saskatchewan, native leaves the game with his head high, and will always be remembered as a Flame.

Tyler Bozak's out of the Toronto Maple Leafs' lineup until he's not.

The center suffered a lower-body injury last week, missing Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins as a result, and head coach Mike Babcock was coy Tuesday about how long Bozak will be out.

"What day did day-to-day start?" Babcock asked, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston. "I don't know. Day-to-day in this league usually means 10 days ... So they tell you day-to-day just so you're not upset and then the days keep going by. I don't know. The guy's going to play when he's ready to play and in the meantime someone else gets an opportunity."

In Toronto's first three games, Babcock relied heavily upon Bozak, who played about 19 minutes a night. The center has a goal and an assist in four games.

Oh, I know he's getting way to much coverage on the sports networks, and yes, if he was a Leaf, the world might have imploded from all the coverage from TSN/Sportsnet.
It's just hard to explain McDavid, he makes stealing the puck seem effortless, he's real fast, great vision.  He's way ahead of any forward on the Oilers.
I thought you of all people would have some sympathy, seeing as the Blackhawks were God awful from the late 90's, until Dollar Bill died.

Oh he is excellent. There is no disputing that.

I hate that he's been so hyped by the media that the natural reaction to it will be to get a hate on for him unless you're an oiler fan. It's already started, and will grow...all talents hyped anywhere near the way he has been suffer the same fate.

As to your Hawks point, the hype will never be comparable between a US hockey city and any Canadian one, when it comes to the hype factor. If McDavid had ended up in Arizona it would be far, far less.
The Hawks got good fast so the hype train was slowed until they were actually already a very good team in 2009. The decade(s) that the Hawks were bad also killed them in Chicago. Edmonton is different not only in the hockey culture but they have been drafting high so there has been an expectation that they would be better every year for 5 years or so.
I thought it was telling that when the Oilers got McDavid, their owner got serious and brought in some real hockey people to run things. Tells you they recognized that this kid could not be fucked up under the thumb of MacTavish, Lowe, and the rest of that crew.

Yeah getting McDavid has finally turned the Oilers owner from a "I'm just happy that the Oilers make money." to "This kid is going to make me so much money, I better get the right structure behind him, to keep him an Oiler for a long time."  He's lucky, last year, the attendance was starting to fall, but not so much now.

Speaking of the Oilers, did they get the funding for their new arena? I remember them talking about it on the Oil Change series.

They sure did, at the expense of the taxpayers!  It opens next season.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are shaking things up in a big way. The Blue Jackets reportedly fired head coach Todd Richards on Wednesday after a horrific 0-7-0 start to the season. They’ll replace him with veteran head coach John Tortorella, TSN’s Darren Dreger reported. The Blue Jays became the first team since the 1997-98 Chicago Blackhawks to start the season 0-7-0 after they were dismantled in a 4-0 shutout loss at home to the New York Islanders on Tuesday night. Columbus has now been outscored 34-13 this season, struggling in just about every facet of the game. Columbus will be Tortorella’s fourth stop. He most recently coached the Vancouver Canucks for the 2013-14 season, going 36-35-11 and missing the playoffs. Tortorella was fired after the season.

Another night, another impressive victory for the Montreal Canadiens.

Habs goalie Carey Price kept the red-hot Vladimir Tarasenko off the board, making a season-high 38 saves to lead the undefeated Canadiens to a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday.

It's Price's second shutout of the season, and the 36th of his career. He now has an absolutely ridiculous .966 save percentage on the year.

Montreal improved to 7-0-0 behind goals from captain Max Pacioretty, Alexander Semin, and Torrey Mitchell en route to their longest winning streak since 2006. The Blues fell to 5-2-0, being shutout for the first time this season.

Pacioretty's first period marker, which tied him for the league lead with five, proved to be the eventual game-winner. Semin's tally was his first as a member of the Habs.

The Canadiens will take their perfect record on the road Friday to battle the Buffalo Sabres before returning home Saturday to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Former players Kevin Stevens, Krzysztof Oliwa, Deron Quint, and Rudy Poeschek have joined the lawsuit against the NHL that alleges the league failed to protect players from concussions, according to TSN's Rick Westhead.

The four join the suit - originally filed in November 2013 by roughly two dozen former NHLers - alleging the league failed to educate them about the possible short- and long-term effects and risks that players face, especially regarding concussions.

In his court filing, Oliwa detailed the injuries he suffered and the treatment he received:

Krysztof Oliwa says in claim he didn’t remember games moments after he played in them. From court filing today: pic.twitter.com/3tNMY9lCg7

As of May, over 60 former players had joined the suit against the NHL.
