    It’s not a question of them tolerating it, it’s a safety issue. Did you see the players and refs falling down while they were slowing skating to a face off location because of the ruts? It wasn’t safe. That’s like saying motogp could race at mid Ohio in the rain because they make millions of dollars and it would be ok because they knew about the track surface.

    I mean....they could race there....

    I grew up playing roller hockey on some crummy surfaces. You just deal with it...

    And yet the vast majority of these guys grew up skating on frozen ponds to play, can’t believe a constructed rink would be worse than those frozen over ponds.

    They just forgot how good they have it when i comes to ice surfaces.

    My last mens league game looked like it had whoops in the circles after a team practice.

    Skating backwards and hitting the brakes sucked.


    Hey, what channel was that on? I didnt get to watch it yesterday.

    I miss JR, he did some of the best off beat reports in hockey broadcasting. And Kathryn even laughed at what he said. PC bullshit. Yet they hired psycho Babcock.

    Love to see the old Roenick board his ass.

    I wish they would’ve retired his number... albeit decades later it still didn’t look right having a Blackhawks #27 jersey with someone else’s name on it...

    I may be picky about that number though...

    That is odd. I dont associate that number with that team with anyone else but JR. Thats a disservice to both players....

    Caught some of the Mike Emrick bit before the Flyers and Bruins.
    I always thought Mike’s style was over the top until I remembered he was a goalie.

    I never knew his off ice or off mic persona. Now that I had a glimpse of it, I appreciate him more than ever.

    Anyone want to put money on seeing the KGB in New York looking for Panarin?

    Allegedly he punched a woman 10 yrs. ago ? When he was a teenager ?
    Doesn't Mother Russia have better shit to do ?

    All I know is that us lifelong Rangers fans can never have anything nice. I'm beginning to think the only way I'll see another Cup win is if they can find a way to clone a 30 year old Messier.
