Simply put, as the title states, lookin to see who here likes hockey. I'm a huge Pens fan myself and tonight was especially kind to the franchise. Not only did we get a win on home ice but the Washingon Capitals finally lost their winning streak at 14 games. I've never felt such excitement, rooting for someone besides Pittsburgh, as I did when Montreal won that game in OT! The NHL record is 17 games done by none other than the '92-'93 'Guins.

I used to watch the Buffalo Sabres alot when Rob Ray, Brad May and Matthew Barnaby played. They were always scrapping with someone and with each other when they got traded. I love the hockey scraps. Haven't watched any hockey for awhile though.

Barnaby was the man. I remember when he played for Pittsburgh, some old man was heckling him as he was walkin down the runway after gettin thrown out of the game and he started swingin at him. Pretty feisty dude

Hey if you can run some names of players/teams with scrappers on them I will look for the team and watch it. Haven't been into the hockey games for awhile. Remember Ty Domi of the Maple Leafs?

Yeah, Domi was a prick as well. Todd Bertuzzi paralyzed a guy, he clocked the guy when he had his back turned. George Laraque was pretty awesome when it came to fighting. He played for Pittsburgh, Montreal and Florida. Brashear's a monster as well, he was just released by the Rangers today. Carcillo from Philadelphia likes to scrap alot as well.

Preds fan here. Never watched hockey till Nashville TN got a team. Went and seen them live against the Red Wings and had a new respect for hockey that I never had. Followed them pretty hard for a couple of years and then seemed to get to busy to get up there for some games. (wife started popping out babies)

I still keep up with them a little bit but havent been to a game in 3 years.

TG since the rule change the "scrapping" has been cut down quite a bit. The refs usually step in and try to stop it at first. 6 or 7 years ago at a Preds game you had more fights than points. On average you would get 4 or 5 good fist throwing scenes per game. When they started trying to cut it out there would be several games I went to without a squirmish.

I've been to 4 games in my time (only 21 and still a broke college student) and I've only seen 2 fights. Both fights happened in the same game, no more than 3 minutes apart.

RE: The problem i

RE: The problem is that the de-leveraging is enurmoos and the money multiplier is currently running at 0. Banks are increasing reserves, decreasing lending and using billions to pay themselves instead of repair their balance sheet. If we can magically wait and it all fixes itself you might see high inflation when that money floods out. However, nothing has changed at all in the system except that the banks are now zombies. Continued deflation is in the cards in this environment. Rate this comment: 0 0

I enjoyed it myself.. Those young U.S.A. guys will realize how close they came to doing what everyone said was impossible before these games started.. They may have had their head down after the game but in time they will appreciate the silver..

Plus we scared the crap outta all them Canadian hockey maniacs.. They woulda been burning the streets down if they would have lost to us..
