2013-2014 NHL Season
« on: Jul 20, 2013, 11:27 PM »
  What's up with these new division names? Metropolitan Division? What the fuck is that supposed to mean? Seems like all NHL teams play in a metropolitan area; it's not like Green Bay or Thunder Bay have teams. Might as well call it the Metrosexual Division. Just have Don Cherry name the divisions and call one the Swedish Fairy division. After everybody made fun of the Big Ten and their stupid Leaders and Legends divisions how did the NHL come up with that?
& how do the Red Wings go from the Western Conference to the Atlantic Division? Detroit's nowhere near the Atlantic Ocean. Can't complain though. The Wings will have way, way less traveling this season and more match-ups against Original 6 teams.
   I liked those archaic division names like Norris and Smythe myself. You had to be some kind of bow-tied historian to even know who the fuck they were talking about. Here's some division names for you: Dope division, Rum division, Cheeseburger division and Donair division. What ya say??

We can't overlook the obvious; Trailer Park division,  Sunnyvale division, Drunk And On Drugs division, and the Lahey's A Drunk And Always Will Be division.

Okay, so let me see if I have this right? Columbus is in the Metropolitan Division and Detroit is in the Atlantic.
Interesting geography.  :P

The schedules were released and I am already planning which games I'll be going to! I've already got 3 lined up. I hope my piece of shit van holds together. Those 2 1/2 rides are getting hard on her. Hopefully, this will be the last year she has to make it!

Between the Lake Erie Monsters (AHL) my son's mite team and the Blue Jackets, Avalanche, Bruins, Leafs and Red Wings...I am going to be VERY busy this fall.  :D I can't WAIT!

Hey these names sound reasonable to me, I can remember when it was the Prince of Wales vs the Clarence Campbell conference!

I reckon you can't be metropolitan if you are bankrupt.  Not even meterosexual  ;)

Charley, in Detroit "light rail" is a line of coke cut with too much baking soda.

The Red Wings are my 11 years old's favourite team. (He is usually smart. I don't know what happened there.) I was going to take him and my 7 year old Bruin's fan (obviously, a genius child) to Detroit this fall for a game at Joe Lewis Arena, eat at the Hockeytown Cafe...visit Hockeytown Authentics. The whole 9 yards.

Now....I don't know.   :confused: Don't get me wrong. Cleveland is just Detroit Jr. but then again, I wouldn't chose to take a weekend holiday in downtown Cleveland with a couple of kids either. 

The Blue Jackets do have a swanky arena and I do appreciate that I can get Horton's and poutine (even if it isn't QUITE right) while I am there, but Metropolitan? I guess I'd better dress better the next time I go.  :lol: I'll turn my oversized CBJ jersey into a dress maybe.   :-k Though, I do want to get a Nathan Horton CBJ shirt....decisions, decisions.

Too bad that 90% of the time I make it to Columbus, it is too root against them. LOL! I don't even hate them. I just like the other teams more.

There was an interesting post made by the NHL on Facebook the other day. It was a poll actually. They wanted to know which city deserved an expansion team more, Portland, Oregon or Seattle, Washington. There was NO mention of Quebec City...except by people living in Quebec that is. THEY were PISSED off at the question.

Personally, I think Saskatchewan should get it's shit together and bid for a team. There has been a lot of great players out of Saskatchewan and while most people in that Providence are loyal Oilers fans, I think they should have a team of their own.

I think Quebec City, needs to stop bitching and enjoy their shitty-ass, freakin' HABS.  (I can feel my grandmother's disapproval as I type.   :cries: )

I happen to like Seattle, but as long as the new team doesn't go to some city in the SOUTH, I'm fine with it. I don't know why, but I can't stand teams that are in places that make absolutely NO sense to me. Texas, Florida and California? Seriously?!  :roll:

Case in point JAG:  I have never been to a Lightning game, and unless I'm given a free ticket, and a ride(15 minute away from the house) to save $8-10 parking gouge, I mean fee, I think I never will.  It's too weird walking out of 97F degree Tampa heat, with 98% humidity, in to a chilled hockey arena.  I've been to Detroit games on rare occasions, but that's far away, and I struggle with moolah too much for many 1,200 mile road trips.

Quebec City can never get an NHL team...because if they did Montreal would want one too.

(Feels great to say that :) )
