Relevant.

But seriously, agreed with Shazbot. No need to yell, dude. After all, there's still a good chance that Vegas could blow that 3-1 lead and Winnipeg could get it in seven. Wishful thinking, I know (especially since I've pegged Vegas to win), but you've got to relax, take a chill pill. Don't get so worked up about it. Don't be a Yinzer but for other teams, shall we say.

Idzequitch wrote:TB tied things up and the Knights have taken three straight. This is much more to my liking.


Also relevant. Here's hoping they can both get the job done, even though I'm probably the only one still doing Shof's bracket challenge at this point.

It's not that bad.

Not to mention whatever the hell happened with South Korea makes me worry a little bit for Team GB next year.

That's a very selective memory you have there. You know that the Jets weren't formed this year, but fail to remember that they haven't been the Thrashers for the last six years. It's almost like you're refusing to use their proper name for the explicit purpose of getting a rise out of other posters, just like you attempted to do by maliciously editing my last post.

I've about had it with this shit, Nazarene.

If they would've just lost to Canada in the OT, I would've been ok with that. But under their newbie coach, they've been sucking. A 1-5 record in the Euro Hockey Tour, whereas their record under Znarok was 5-1. They demonstrated an inability to make a single comeback against a top six team throughout the World Championship. They didn't just lose to Canada; they lost to Sweden and Czech Republic. The current record against other Top Six teams stands at a miserable 1-8. Vorobiev should be fired, and Znarok brought back solely as the national team's coach - no need to also have him coach SKA.

Also, the World Championship is ruthless, especially with the new format, introduced in 2012. You have every reason to be worried about GB, because the teams, if they play smart, will mostly play their third and fourth lines, but even these lines can be devastating. By the time you make it through, you're demoralized. That said, Korea made it because they had the Olympics. GB made it on their own merits, so it shouldn't be that bad.

Anyways, anyone else laughing at Canada? It's all good, the Swiss are such a tough team :P

Oh chill out. Like calling them the Thrashers is going to get a rise out of anyone who isn't an Atlanta Thrashers but in Canada fan. Maybe if you stepped off the high horse and actually tried you'd possibly realize the person you're so condescending towards is a bitter Atlanta Thrashers fan.
Also if you call that malicious editing then your post is an alarmingly eye-catching bait.

If Bykov can do this kind of thing with Switzerland, imagine what he can do with Russia... oh wait, we know what he did with Russia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjrlELfSyBw

Shouldn't have fired him. He gave us 2 great seasons, 2 decent seasons, and 1 really bad season, so what? 2011 wasn't our year. Bykov's actually consulting with Swiss hockey.

Calling them the thrashers isn’t bait man, no matter which way you slice it. We’re not required to keel every time someone gets irrationally offended.

I'm still hoping some small bit that despite playing for the Capitals Ovechkin gets over the hump. He has earned it, finally shedding those spider webs and stomping out the spiders. Unfortunately the Two-Headed Antichrist Vasilevkos seems to have knocked his confidence down a peg. Or maybe the spiders came back for game 3 and stayed...

Calling them the thrashers isn’t bait man, no matter which way you slice it. We’re not required to keel every time someone gets irrationally offended.

After being told that it's disrespectful and acknowledging that certain fans might be baited by it ("Like calling them the Thrashers is going to get a rise out of anyone who isn't an Atlanta Thrashers but in Canada fan.") it could be. Probably doesn't rise to that level in isolation, but multiple posts over multiple pages, after being asked to stop multiple times, changes the context; perhaps enough to qualify it as bait.

And changing my post is what Nazarene did. I've been around for some time, I am aware of what is (and is not) malicious quote editing.

Nicely done Vegas.
Ukraine - stop bombing innocent people! Pricks who burn other people alive should be punished.
The Roma are Human Beings, just like you and me.
WADA/IPC/IOC are begging Russia to form a strategic alliance with China. Perhaps it's time.
Come, learn about Russian Culture! Bring Vodka and Ushanka. Interested in Slavic Culture? Fill this out.

(North) Kosovo is (a de facto part of) Serbia and Crimea is (a de facto part of) Russia! DonBass is De Facto Independent! Stand with NovoRossiya!
