Sorry Chizip. I agree it was stupid of them. It was a really fun game. Adorable comes to mind. God I love my hockey. Got World Cup tickets for next year! Canada vs. USA and then Canada vs. Slovakia. I quote: "The 2004 edition of the Canadian World Cup Hockey team wil be run by Wayne Gretzky". *Here's to hoping for the Olympics round II.

Always an ass.

It was 'adorable' in my eyes because I grew up watching that team. Anderson, Fuhr, Gretzky, Messier, Tikkanen et al. The Oilers were my childhood, but god forbid you could ever relate to anything special like that. I suppose it's a Canadian thing, after all hockey is our sport.

My play was likened to Esa's once. Memories indeed.

Mine isn't illegal, we get CBC here in Southeastern Michigan for nothing.


That was an adorable game, Angel. I remember watching those players when I was a kid and it was really cool seeing them out there.

And how sharp was Don Cherry?

Okay, first things first - Chiz, the CBC is The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (not "channel" )

On to the game... It was so cool to see Fuhr, Wayne, Jari, Mess, Anderson, Coffey, etc, all again in the Oiler colours of yore. Fuhr and Ranford both looked like they could sign an NHL contract today, and be amazing, no joke. I was disappointed that Gretzky didn't play much, but there again, no one did. The benches were too long for how short the game was. Two 15 minute periods is just not enough for 4 lines. Each line got only about 8 shifts total. I think at the very least they should have had three 15 minute periods. It would still have been only a 45 minute game, which would have been fine. Oh well.

When he did play, Gretz looked good out there, too. Too bad Kurri couldn't keep up with him. He should just play for the Coyotes, though, seriously. He's still good enough. He would give them a much needed playmaking centerman and powerplay specialist... Man, it was nice to see him in an Oilers uniform again!

But that was hockey for the pure joy of it. 57,000 people watched it... a record for a hockey game. And they all seemed to enjoy the -20 C. temps. Only in Canada....

PS. Don Cherry is more Ontarian than Canadian at this point. He's *so* biased for the Leafs it's getting ridiculous. But that goes for pretty much the entire CBC.

Methinks someone is bitter. A good old 5-3 bitter.

Hazah.

Oh, actually, I'd completely forgotten about the Leafs game! But since you bring it up, the Canucks plainly sucked tonight. Worst game of the year, bar none. They lost for the first time all season at home, which tells you something. I think there's something going on inside the locker room, or something behind the scenes... I can't put my finger on it, but something is not right with the Canucks. They could blow teams out, but lately they're not even really trying that hard... they're barely beating teams they should be crushing. But it's more than just the stats and the wins. Yeah, it's in the effort. Something's amis, and it's really too bad. I have a feeling it's Crawford. The guy has no composure. I still think Ted Nolan would be just what they need, but I know he's not interested in coaching anymore.

What a heritage classic.

Some thoughts:

Best part of the night: Messier then the flower then the Great one getting introduced. Another thing, the CBC should have made the crowds noise come through better. Its the crowd that i want to here roar, thats what gives me goosebumps.

The alumni game wasnt great but it was fun! The rat is the man!

Low moment of the night: Wayne's daughter singing i will remember you, and she lypshnched!! Not cool, i'd have thought that wayne would teach his kids to do it right. Oh by the way his daughter looks alot like Janet...!!!!

The game itself was a good game, the ice wasnt great but there was a good few hits and even though the OIL lost they played alright and made it interesting at the end.

All in all one great night.

And Don Cherry, i met him last night. He has a restaurant here and we were at a bar close by and heard some of the players and Don were going there so we headed down. He pulled up in this limo/truck with huge antlers on the grill. He waved, we asked to come in, he laughed. Maybe next time!

Oh and a buddy of mine works downtown at a pretty nice restaurant (sorrientinos) and the Montreal new and old team booked the place on Firday nad left a 10,000 dollar tip(there were a 120 ppl) Not bad!
