I've always been frustrated with Bob Cole precisely because he seems to want to do colour, and falls behind the play. I guess it's not really colour, he just goes down these rabbit holes continuing to describe something that happened 30 to 60 seconds earlier while the play has already moved down to the other end of the ice.

Nice. Thanks for posting it.

Yes I remember being very discouraged at that point because we were down 2-0 and the game had that feel of being out of reach. Lemaire shoots from outside the blue line, I whined something like "aw man, don't shoot from there, you idiot!" Tony O misplays the rising slapper by dropping to his butterfly, waves at the puck as it sails over his head, and the comeback is on!

When I first saw your name I read "Stoneman". I guess that says something right there.

Why does everybody seem to hate the Sens so much? I mean, EVERYBODY! Even people who don't follow hockey seem to hate them. Is it something to do with Ottawa itself?

That whole "west of Manitoba" thing is pretty confusing though. All I really want is access to Habs games in English and HD. It's unclear to me if that's going to happen in the west, other than maybe on Saturdays.

That's a rather "biting" comment :)

I think the intention is to Generate interest, promote the junior game internationally (which enlarges the prospect pool for the pros). You certainly don't want to kill whatever little interest exists by never going there, and if you want it to grow in those areas you have to go there fairly regularly. I'm sure the ridiculous amount of money they make in Canada helps subsidize the European tournaments.
