Canadians should be cheering for Team Canada and Americans should be cheering for Team USA so who should be cheering for Team North America? wtf? Why isn't Nathan MacKinnon on my Team Canada? dumb format...but I do think it will be fun to watch =)
That is dumb.
I watched the first USA vs Canada pretournament game. A bit more physical then I thought it would be. Canada looks like they got payback on the second game. I haven't been able to watch much.
Quick looks like he's been best in net though. : D

Re: NHL '16-'17 BS Thread

Sorry to continue my rant about the world cup of hockey but why do teams Canada and US have to split their national talent between two teams (their national team and team North America) while Russia, Sweden, Finland get to stack their national talent on one team? To me that is completely unfair. That in itself trashes the credibility of the tournament for me - it will still be fun to watch the games, and I will obviously still cheer for team Canada, but I think the team format is completely ridiculous. k, I think I'm done my rant...for now...lol

It's a lame way to split up talent. It should be USA and Canada and that's it. A North America team is ridiculous.

No doubt. First real games are tomorrow - even though I think the team format is ridiculous I'm still going to be watching every game - should be some great hockey. It will also be a good preview of the Canucks top line since the Sedins and Erikson are playing together on Sweden's top line.

USA vs Canada at the World Cup tonight - should be a good game. I think both teams are gonna bring it full on. I watched USA play Team Europe and they didn't look good in that game. I'm surprised Team USA picked Tortellini as their head coach - can't stand that guy...and he always seems to attract controversy, which is not what teams need. Surprised Peter Laviolette didn't make the Team USA coaching staff - he's a good coach and I think he's American. Anyhow, looking forward to the game tonight!

Canada the only team to go undefeated in the round robin... The games have been a bit scrambly - maybe because it's early season and they are still shaking off the rust from the summer. In any case, the tournament has been pretty fun to watch so far. =)

I was away on business when this game was on but I was sneaking peeks at it at dinner. Canada lit up USA and Quick looked like.

Re: NHL '16-'17 BS Thread

NHL season is underway =) Some good story lines already - how about Matthews getting 4 goals in his first NHL game (NHL history). Canucks are 2 - 0, although we play the Blues next =o St Louis scares me - they look really good out of the gate and I think they are the team to watch out for in the west this year.

Huberdeau out for 3-4 months. FFS!
New look Panthers are 2-0 out of the gate though.

I watched that incident in slow-motion and Kalinin's skate came down right around Huberdeau's achilles tendon - very unfortunate fluke accident...

Going to watch the Canucks vs Blues tonight but I'm worried about that game cuz the Blues have a very solid team with one of the best defenses in the league.

Jagr gets goal 750 during our 2-4 loss to the Caps.
I fell asleep early and missed it.

Re: NHL '16-'17 BS Thread

I've always liked Jagr...seems like he would be a cool guy to have on your team. Canucks are the only undefeated team in the league at 4 - 0...didn't see that coming...but they're going to LA and Anaheim on the weekend so I have a feeling our winning streak isn't going to last very long =(

16 games played and Canucks have 33 goals - only the Sabres and Avs are worse. Could be a long year for Canucks fans =(

Well, the Kings only got two points up on you. Looking kind of meh for the new look Panthers too sitting at 7-7-1; also with 15 points.
The Rangers look like a steam roller. How about that Michael Grabner?!? He has more goals at this point than all of this year. And it looks like he started out as a Canuck?
The Rangers are #2 overall in the NHL behind..... the Habs! (shakes fist!)
