  • Why players fight in hockey?

    Best answer: A bit of fisticuffs is a better way to solve emotional differences than bashing each other over the head with sticks or kicking each other with sharp skates. BTW I didn't say it was a good way to solve issues, just better. I don't really support fighting in hockey but mostly it is between willing... show more
    Best answer: A bit of fisticuffs is a better way to solve emotional differences than bashing each other over the head with sticks or kicking each other with sharp skates. BTW I didn't say it was a good way to solve issues, just better. I don't really support fighting in hockey but mostly it is between willing combatants, there are referees, and like I said it is better than the alternatives. Hockey is tough game, and that's the way we Canadians like it.

  • Are Bruins fans the most racist in the NHL?

    Yes we all know that Boston itself is racist to the core, and is segregated. Just look at the ethnicity of their fans. All white and Anglo looking. And didn't they make monkey noises at black fans when the Habs visited Boston? Philly/the Flyers come a close second. Then Detroit/the Red Wings. There is no... show more
    Yes we all know that Boston itself is racist to the core, and is segregated. Just look at the ethnicity of their fans. All white and Anglo looking. And didn't they make monkey noises at black fans when the Habs visited Boston? Philly/the Flyers come a close second. Then Detroit/the Red Wings. There is no Canadian hockey team with all white fans. Not all American hockey teams have all white fans though. I saw a slight mix among the Nashville Predators, LA Kings and Washington Capitals.

    A little context, I recently moved to college and my roommates both play hockey. I have been recently hanging out with them and some of their teammates who come and chill. Well they like me and I like them, but the issue is I have never skated nor played hockey in my life; so they proposed I be the equipment manager so I can hang out with them after practice and take part in all the things they do as a team; but I'm not sure what other peoples perception of an equipment manager is.

  • Who do you think is the most overrated current NHLer?

    I know I might get some hate for my opinion, but I would say Erik Karlsson is the most overrated today. Mostly because he is a defenceman and he is quite bad defensively. I am not doubting his offensive abilities, but to fill his position well enough to his hype, he does need to improve defensively alot. What... show more

  • Who would win in a brawl? Canadian hockey fans or British football fans?

    My money is on the British hooligans. I'm certain Leafs, Habs, and Canucks fans would poop in their pants when confronted by Arsenal, Chelsea, Cardiff or Newcastle supporters. Fun fact: a 10 year old British boy could lift a grown Canadian man off his feet and throw him 100 feet into the air. Anyway if... show more

Fun fact: a 10 year old British boy could lift a grown Canadian man off his feet and throw him 100 feet into the air. Anyway if Brits and Canadians encountered each other, expect to see many Canadian men and women's severed heads flying everywhere. Because the British are hooligans trained to fight since birth.

  • Do Canadian hockey fans do crazy things at games?

    For example at Canucks, Leafs, Canadiens, Oilers games do the fans do the following: 1) Take their shirts off and flaunt their beer bellies. 2) Yell insults at players. 3) Get very drunk, until they vomit. 4) Throw beer bottles on the ice. 5) Run onto the ice completely naked. 6) Yell racial slurs at black or... show more

And could you compare them to British football (soccer) hooligans?

  • Does height matter in ice hockey?

    Best answer: At the amateur/recreational level not really. At the professional level, goalies are getting taller as it helps to cut down on open space (NHL goalies are all pretty much 6 feet tall or taller, and several are 6'3" and up). As for position players (forwards/defence) skating ability is probably a bigger... show more
    Best answer: At the amateur/recreational level not really. At the professional level, goalies are getting taller as it helps to cut down on open space (NHL goalies are all pretty much 6 feet tall or taller, and several are 6'3" and up). As for position players (forwards/defence) skating ability is probably a bigger determining factor; your better skaters typically are your defence (going into corners in your defensive zone, skating backwards on odd-man rushes and transitions aren't easy to learn) and centre (FWIW I play defence in a men's league (over 35) in suburban Toronto but we put our best skaters on the wing or at centre). It's not uncommon for your bigger/taller (and good skaters) players to play defence (in my case, 2 out of 3 isn't bad; I'm 6'1" if that matters). With that being said, there's no reason you couldn't be an effective defenceman at 5'8". Suggestion: when you get on the ice, play forward and defence and see what position you prefer (it helps if you can play both). Initially, focus on your skating and learning how to use the edges of your skate blades. It sounds simple, but even NHLers work on their skating in the off-season and a big part of this is edge control (there's a video on YouTube of PK Subban doing some training; his edge work is unbelievable in the video; I cannot explain how hard it is to do what you see him doing). It's the basics; stops, starts, crossovers, using your edges, backwards crossovers, backwards, being able to stay on your feet when you're going into boards. Have fun! It's a great game.

    for the MLB i blame the steroids
    i blame the russians in the NHL for not putting their full force 100% of time, they're only in north america for the money, they dont care about having their name written down for history on hockey's holy grail. i mean look at the KHL trophy, it's not about hockey it's about space travel that has nothing to do with hockey.
