Jets continuing their strong run for the bottom, down 4-0 to Carolina just over 10:00 into the game.

I had enjoyed watching him in Jnr, but I'm reading today that hockeystreams might be gone for good.

it'll suck not getting to watch all the CHL and AHL games. I'm more upset about that than I am the money I've lost. :(



Yup, looks like it, I was just about to post that. I know I said I was going to give GCL a chance but I basically talked myself out of it because of all the extra features HS had (like other leagues, international tournaments, trade deadline show, draft coverage). But, ah well. Good thing I only had like 4 days left on my subscription anyway.

Hopefully http://onhockey.tv/ doesn't go down.  It's a great alternative.

Ugh how do the Leafs have the same points as Winnipeg and Calgary?  Some of these teams need to seriously get their acts together.

Aren't they scoring at basically the same rate overall as last season?  I can't find where I saw that but I swear I read it today or yesterday.

On the season, yes, but since the beginning of December, they're averaging ~1.9 goals per game (not including a pair of shootout "goals"). Basically, once Price got injured the 2nd time and it was known he'd be out for an extended period, they started to become exposed for what they really are.

I'm glad.  I was sick of hearing them labelled contenders.  And hey, maybe they would be with Price in net, and any team would suffer losing their best player.  But that doesn't make them a good team.

Doesn't matter the year or the personnel, Devils games always rank up there with the most boring of the year.

I figured they'd sink without Price, but maybe not to this extent. The thing is, they might be the only team in the league with less offensive depth than the Leafs. They really do have a pretty sad roster that was being bolstered by the best goalie on the planet.

Man I'd give them Reimer for free if it meant keeping them out of the basement. Their odds of winning the lottery now really aren't all that far off from ours.

They could also be in the running for A. Nylander, which would certainly add another level to future Leafs-Habs games.

Not French enough. Gauthier's probably their guy in that spot.

Buffalo scores 3 goals in the 3rd to beat Montreal 4-2. Just hoping for a Calgary win now, they're tied 1-1 with Carolina.

They won.

Seems pretty similar to this: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Autumn_Rocky_Mountain_Maple_Leaf.jpg

Leaving aside(get it?) that I don't agree, you can switch it in your head to "It doesn't look like a leaf on any tree that grows within 1000 miles of where the team plays" if that helps.

Not that it matters, but it looks like a stylized silver maple, which absolutely grows within 1000 miles of Toronto. It's stylized by adding more breadth to the body which is necessary to fit the text comfortably.

What does it matter?  It's Canada's Team.  8)

Don't know why I'm arguing about plant leaves which are all different anyway.

I think it looks like a maple leaf.

Twitter is already wondering how Lou could possibly let the logo get away with wearing a moustache.

I read that then I looked at the logo and thought people were realllly stretching to make jokes.
