For future reference, it's probably better to focus on the merits of the NHL instead of calling another sport "thug ball".
Dwayne Wade kicking someone in the junk isn't being a thug? Give me the high scoring team basketball of the late 80s,early 90s and ill watch
Have there been any reports of any teams skating informally together? These guys are always in shape. What stars have we lost to Europe ?
No kidding. I love hockey but it's pretty obvious there's some cognitive dissonance when people like beal99 call the NBA "thug ball".
Imagine if the NBA allowed its "thugs" to participate in sanctioned fighting the way the NHL does with its "goons".
People who think the NBA is "thug ball" would lose their minds.

I wish the fans would boycott the first game.
What the hell? I was referring to the bad boys and Jordan and pippen and grant, you guys are messed up
I saw something the other day that said Cleary was skating with a bunch of guys out in Troy in informal practices. I think most of the guys in Europe have opt out clauses that let them back. Expect Z and Datsyuk to be coming back quickly after the agreement is ratified.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
I can barely contain my excitement. :|
That's the NBA season. Nobody gives a fuck for 82 games because the playoff teams are really obvious.
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...

The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
My buddy told me Friday that it was gonna happen. He said that the physical therapist that he goes to played in the NHL for a little while, so he has some connections in the league office. Glad to see it finally happened and I'm ready to get back to Joe Louis Arena.
Just to get you ready...
From the blog Puck Daddy: The NHL lockout is over, which means players who have been passing the time by playing in Europe will now be headed back to North America to their respective cities. One of those players is Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit … Continue reading →
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
Zetterberg will be back soon. He's been linemates with Damien Brunner all fall and they've dominated the Swiss league. Hopefully the chemistry translates to the NHL.
Looks like Kronwall has stayed in Detroit.
Datsyuk will also be back soon.
NEW YORK. Ovissheten är över. Det är det som gläder Henrik Zetterberg mest med det nya kollektivavtalet i NHL. – Vi har fått ge mer än ligan, men känns väldigt skönt att vi till si
The guys in Troy have been skating there regularly since September. That's nothing new. The guys coming back from Europe is newsworthy. You're correct, the players that signed in Europe signed contracts only through the end of the NHL lockout. The Swedish Elite League even had to go to court to allow that rule. They wanted to force NHLers into yearlong contracts.
Of course, this all happens 2 days after I resigned from my position with OEI and 2 days before I leave for grad school in California. Oh well...
Datsyuk is amazing. Was at the playoff game where he scored the insane backhand goal to make San Jose fans nervous. No one could believe what they saw for a good five seconds before people started cheering.
College football is the only sport that could go year round and I wouldn't care. I know you can't do this, but I can wish. All other sports need to shorten their seasons.
Even tho I'm not a pro football fan, they did get the length of their season just about right.
Does anybody know if Filppula is still recovering from his injury?
God, i needed this so much. I will not be boycotting shit because fuck that noise. I want hockey.
I haven't figured out what New Hampshire is, from that pic.
Thank you, Denicos.
Yes, he is.
Yeah, fuck that. I like hockey. I don't like not having hockey to watch, so I'm going to protest by...not watching hockey?
That's an ESPN poll. hockey fans don't read go to ESPN for anything hockey related.
