I've seen enough of the NHL

Recommended Posts

The league has been going down since the turn of the decade but i've still watched NHL games, until now, i'm done, the league is headed to a direction geared towards punks and hotheads and this tops the cake

He really has irked a lot of people of late with his silly antics and celebrations after his Goals.

He's too good and its not necessary.

Some fans love it, some don't. I do.

This guy is the real deal. I'd rather watch it than watching basketball, where they like to say F-Bombs after a dunk+foul when camera is starring right in their faces or on live interview when they win a championship crazy...ring a bell? Yep, KG.

But I still love [both] guy(s)! Unconditionally, of course.

I have to agree wuth Quack. Hockeys never gonna be like the good ole days. The sport needs these kinds of players to bring people that usually wouldn't watch. I would think that besides from the purists out there that these type of celly's aren't a big deal. Been watching my whole life (30) and think that he is one of the best besides #99 and #66.

I like it. The NHL needs a little kick in the rear. Celebrating after a goal is part of what makes it exciting. Looked like the high school kids at the tournament knew what to do...

He disrespects the game of hockey every time he steps on the ice. It makes me sick. I am wishing for the ghost of Scott Stevens to lay a check on this clown and shut him up for a while.

The problem is he's so good its going to be tough to nail him. But yeah lets hope they crush him.

If it was just this one incident I'd let pass but he's been doing a lot of this Non-sense of late. The dumbest one was when rode his stick like a horse after an empty netter in blow-out victory...

Stay tuned... grin

Who cares what he does? Noone is watching it anyway. Both the NHL and NBA can be abolished for all I care. They both have too long of seasons and are boring as all [PoorWordUsage].

College hockey is much more fun to watch IMO.

I like watching the wild on tv. i cant sit and watch an NBA game. College basketball i can get into. I'd rather go to an SCSU home hockey game than a wild game though. just my 2 cents.

Very Nice observation!

I will add Don Cherry cares about the NHL turning into a circus... grin

I don't see Ovichkin's move as disrespecting or degrading to hockey. Kind of what Otter said, every kid in the high school tourney was doing some kind of celebration. Most of the moves were the classic drop to one knee with a fist pump and then b-line it past the bench after every goal. Also, I know I can remember riding the stick every once and again just for fun when I was young. It draws some attention to the game, but not in a negative way. Now if he pulls a sharpie out of shin pads, that's another story.

Celibrating a goal after you score it is about pride and to turn/keep the momentum for your team.

Thats what fights are used for too.

All that right there is coming from my coach named Phil Housley.

He told are team that this year.

if you dont know who he is look him up and you'll find plenty.

Yes it is good to be humble sometimes and its good to be humble off the ice and to be happy and proud on the ice.

That is sad how you guys are.

Your juding someone because he so good.

He worked hard to be that good and he can hit like a mother too..

its his efforts that got him to where he is.

If you guys would have worked as hard as him you'd be there right now and if you saw people saying this about you, im sure you wouldnt be to happy...

celebrating after a goal is fine, but when he's trying to do T.O. antics or was he being Jimi Hendrix with his guitar on fire? He's only making enemies that way but he dont care he's just that good. Gretzky or Mario never did that but they were class acts.

I guess I'm in the same boat as Jake. Little will keep me from loving the game. I don't have a huge problem with Ovechkin, he's a phenominal player. I don't really agree with the goal celebrations, nut I'm definitely not hoping someone injures him.

I would say we're pretty lucky to have a league made up of the best players in the world and be able to watch games here. Look at European teams, it's all the kids who didn't make the NHL and the old guys who couldn't take the NHL anymore.

For those who think NHL is stupid because of the amount of games...take a look at the four major sports. All have large numbers of games except football. The MLB seems to be doing ok. They have 162 games seasons, double that of the NHL.

I agree this doesn't make the top 50 of reasons not to watch the NHL.

Personally I'm not watching the NHL until they go back to the Gump Worsley days and they make the goalies play without mask's grin

Anyway it sounds like coach had a talk with him an explained to 23 year old super star that such "TO" celebrations although not intended could be considered to be mocking or showing up the other team..

Next!

Wow. It is a free country.

Jump around and celebrate like a goof if you must.

OR, just raise your stick in the air like #99.

Either way, I still want to see him get railroaded with a hard hip check or shoulder to the chin. I don't like Mr. Ovechkin and that is my exercising of the 1st amendment. shocked

    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it.
