Where did you get that lol. I like the ducks but they are loosing so many games that they should be winning. I see them with a comeback in the middle of the season but i dont see them going far in the playoffs if there is even playoffs to be made. Unless they start winning like now. I love the ducks (not as much as my yotes) so id like to see them win too.
I think the Blues are going to be the team to beat soon, they have talent they just need to sort it all out.

Im sorry? What do you mean WHERE?
Oh, Well look at Chicago this year.. Patrick Kane, Jon Toews, Robert Lang... Plus they have Lalime and Khabibulin(sp) in the pipes, so I think they will be a higher scoring team this year. Think about them like Vancouver, a good set man and good scorers.
Watching hockey is one of my favorite things to do, no matter what teams are playing. Boston is the team I really follow though... and I'm not sure what's going on! They're winning games? Thomas has been playing strong in net and Fernandez looked great today (26 saves) and Kessel is just dirty when it comes to the shoot out. Gotta love that kid.
I really don't like that video because the commentators are obviously biased and try to make it like Jones did nothing wrong when it clearly was a very dangerous hit from behind.[/QUOTE]
I feel that he did nothing wrong. If you actually watch his play and know his history, he does not do these things at all. He pretty much did put himself in that position and Jones was committed to hitting him, just to take him out of the play not to hurt him. He is not like Steve Downie or Jesse Boulerice, where they did hit with intent to injure.
I definitely agree with you that he is not like Steve Downie or Jesse Boulerice, those hits were way out of line. Yes, hits like this happen a lot and Bergeron was extremely unlucky with the outcome of this one but the hit did seem pretty high up on his back ... also me being a huge Boston fan probably why I'm not totally agreeing with you, lol
[QUOTE="An_Ocean_Between_Us, post: 0]The only bad thing I see about this is that its Philly's third in a row.[/quote]
And Bergeron's concussion + broken nose isn't bad? Danng man that's rough lol It's good that that's all the happend though.. watching it live made it look real bad, it's always scary to see a player lay motionless.
And I think he was plenty close to the boards, the problem was that he was sort of hunched over so his face went straight into the dasherboards.
Did anyone happen to watch the Stars Coyotes game? I happened to be there, and dont think im being a fan here, but wtf is wrong with the Refs?
1 Dallas was going mad with tripping but the Refs would not call it at all. Instead they kept turning around and calling roughing whenever we got a scoring chance.
2 It was clear they were mad at the coyotes or the fact the whole crowd was calling them retards because they came to a point where they cant even call offsides or anything on the Stars. I mean the dallas guy was almost nearly at the face off circle gets the pass and then a breakaway. He even went to turn around and get ready for a face off yet the Ref that was standing right there didnt do ****.
It was like the the whole game and it was ridiculous! If it wasnt for that then they would have gotten 3 power play goals and we would of had a chance.
I was sitting next to die hard stars fans and even they were sitting there like "wtf, thats odd"
Anyways. Im thinking that Jones will get a suspension, but it won't be as long as the Boulderice or Downie suspensions because there was ZERO intent to injure, it was mostly Bergerons fault because he didnt properly prepare himself for a hit that you should always be prepared to take. Plus Jones has no history of this in the past.
Looks like Jones will be sitting for a few (2) games due to the hit on Bergeron.
"While it is my determination that Jones did not intend to injure his opponent, he did deliver a hard check to a player who was in a vulnerable position," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. "There have been suggestions by some that this hit was comparable to incidents earlier this season where players received significant game suspensions for blows to the head. These comparisons and suggestions are wrong," Campbell added.
