So, there's an outdoor game going on right now?

I'm in.

Went to OT.  Pretty good game.  Lots of snow.  (But not too much to play.)

Between NHL teams?  I didn't hear one word about it.  Maybe it's time to scale back these games a bit?  Or advertise, a little?

That’s exactly what I thought.

I mean what's the point of having them? Ensure 4 times the amount of fans are uncomfortable?

It was the Heritage Classic, an all Canadian team game, held every once in a while.

I guess it’s not promoted in the US. The networks are not interested.

It was a good game. Interesting locale, Mosaic stadium, football stadium in Regina Saskatchewan  nearly halfway between Winnipeg and Calgary.

I heard about it ahead of time.

And yet it was broadcast on NBCSN.

There's a very immature part of me that wishes his first name started with an S.

But.. yeah.. it's not good.  Worse than Toronto?  I don't know.  

When you are hoping boo low gets back from injury soon, your D is a mess...

It's a shame he'll never hit UFA status.  Things like this would put us on his list.

Somebody just got a massive cap exemption if they can hold off his return until playoff time.

But at what cost?

Detroit’s offense is ass right now and needs the help. Perlini has a lot of potential, just hasn’t put it together yet. He at least gives them speed, which seems to be the theme Detroit is moving towards with AA et al.  Seems like a good hockey trade to me.

In my opinion, you cant call anything a good trade unless you know what was given up. Maybe Detroit gave up way too much.

Vancouver is up 4-1 on Florida, only ten minutes into the game.

Every now and then we go through a year where the complexion of the league changes. This sure looks like one of those years.

Vancouver had a kinda similar offseason to the Sabres: they added a handful of vets to a good core of youngsters and created some much-needed organizational depth.

Like Buffalo, the fans were all “yeah, but...” because none of the moves were homeruns, but also like Buffalo there were enough singles and doubles to make a difference.

Now everyone is all paranoid, just waiting for the bubble to burst. I’m not so sure it will.

They traded defenseman Alex Regula. 6'4" RHD currently playing his final year in the OHL.
