Olympic Hockey?

Post by the_inebriati » Thu Feb 08, 2018 12:52 pm

Any other die hard hockey fans out here? Although I find the European style ref'ing in the olympics(penalties doled out for good, clean hits) to be tiresome, I do still enjoy the games.

Flyers fan myself but I do like the Olympic games. I kinda miss the days before the pros joined but the games are better now. Though the USA gets pummeled a bit.

Also I stand corrected. This year the NHL isn't releasing the players to play in the Olympics. AHL is though. One of the Hershey Bears is going.

I completely agree...I liked it better just having our various countries juniors/university ranks filling out the rosters.

Diehard hockey fan, watching the Wings right now actually. Yeah apparently NHL players aren't covered by insurance currently for non-NHL games so no pro players. Miracle on Ice probably still the best sports story IMO. Not a bad movie either.

I remember watching that game as a kid. I was 11 or 12. The whole country was watching. We went absolutely bonkers when we won. Amazing moment.
