NHL 2021 season

Wow what an OT finish between the NYR and Toronto!

Check out this non stop action in OT

The new tv partners are doing a good job with ESPN. They look like they're taking the game seriously... and the Devils are 2-0? Must be early.

Canucks are atrocious to start the year. Looks like the experiment of staying with one of the worst management team's in North American professional sports and a bad coach is not paying off.

So jealous of you guys signing Douggie Hamilton.

Habs' Cinderella run last playoffs got me back into watching them, then management wasted a 1st round pick on a sex offender. So the 0-5 start is kind of enjoyable.

I hate the sport that I love.

I watched Kyle Beach's interview yesterday and it was absolutely brutal.

Jonathan Toews didn't exactly cover himself in glory on this one, nor did Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Colliton.

Although, inadvertently, they did speak to the cultural problem at the root of this. I don't want to smear, but it's hard to read their words and not surmise that, for both, their issue remains the creation of "a distraction" and not, y'know.... the heinous sexual assault, and that's before we discuss who they might ultimately blame. And they're definitely not alone.

He teased them into thinking they could get to the bench for a change, then just drove through the middle of four guys with tired legs. Smart play.

Greetings. Let me see if I can explain this: I'm, or was, a great hockey fan. But as time marches on, games on hockey became very complex to me. I have slow reflexes with old eyes. So if I wanted to play a hockey game to enjoy, is there such a one for a fella like me?

I wish I could answer but hockey games are sparse. I haven’t even played a console game since the 360.

NHL 22 does have an NHL 94 control scheme option.

Yeah, it's thin on the ground. The only options I'm familiar with are the NHL series (if you want to control the people on the ice) or Eastside Hockey Manager (if you wanna be a GM), but that's literally it.

Meanwhile, I am trying not to let the Blueshirts get my hopes up.

I know but it's not easy, they have some nice talent now!

The new Devils jerseys look alright, but they look awful in some photos. Still, they could have put more effort into it. They ran out of the charity hats that said "HAT" already... bummer !
