Leafs Lose in Time to Let Canadians See Chris Hadfield Land

I have new respect for the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. Instead of trying to win Game 7 of their playoffs against the Boston Bruins in over time, they gave up the winning goal in time so the game could be off the air just time in for Canadians to see their beloved astronaut, Chris Hadfield, land in his return from the International Space Station.

The Leafs, clearly, put the interests of Canadians above theirs, knowing not all Canadians are Leaf fans… but that all Canadians, are Chris Hadfield fans. 🙂

Chris is a Leafs fan, though. He won’t be happy to hear that upon coming back to Earth. However, he should be consoled and touched by the fact the Leafs lost for him.

Thanks, Leafs! Enjoy your summer. You’ll get the karma back in your golf games.

Boston Bruins Get Justice in Game 7 Stanley Cup Finals Win of Karmic Proportions

Talk about justice, or karma! The Boston Bruins won Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals against the Vancouver Canucks in all the ways the Canucks had beaten them in Vancouver in three previous games. You can get the stats and game highlights elsewhere. I’ve got the karmic analysis here… just the way Vancouverites like to think about the universe. 😉

Do the Vancouver Canucks Deserve to Win the Stanley Cup?

I’m a Canadian and I want a Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup since we’re overdue. However, the way the Canucks are playing, I’m almost feeling they don’t deserve it. Not the way Canadians play hockey!

Seriously, after six games and the series tied at three games apiece, Vancouver has led for less than 33 minutes.

Vancouver has been outscored more than 2 to 1! As the league’s top offensive team with 262 goals during the regular season, the Canucks have all of 8 goals scored to show for it. Boston, meanwhile, has scored 19 goals against the league’s top defensive team that only allowed 185 goals all season.

Vancouver has also “out dived” Boston. Vancouver has faked falls, and in Game 6, they faked scoring a goal. Despite a loud “ping” off the post, and no goal light going off, Jannik Hansen acted like the Canucks just scored and stopped the game.

The Vancouver Canucks’ 2011 Stanley Cup Winning Omen

Do you believe in signs? Signs in omens?

I certainly do, and I saw one today that has me convinced the Vancouver Canucks will win the Stanley Cup in 2011.

Look at the logos of the two teams the way they will be shown during the finals, with the home advantage team customarily on the right. What do you see?

Edmonton Oilers Gets First Pick in 2010 NHL Draft, Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin?

The Edmonton Oilers have just been award the #1 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

If you were in their management, who would you pick?

Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin?

Someone else?

Trade the pick away?

Beg Gretzky to return?

Do share a thought if you’ve got one in the poll below. I’ve listed the top 5 scouting picks.

The rest of the lottery picks panned out as follows. Just as the odds had it.

# 2 -Boston Bruins

# 3 – Florida Panthers

# 4 – Columbus Blue Jackets

# 5 – New York Islanders

The way the NHL lottery rules are, there isn’t much of a lottery. If you had to play the lottery that way, you probably wouldn’t ever bother.

It’s been a pretty dismal season for the Edmonton Oilers, and this fan. I’ve been a fan since the 1980s when I came to Canada and, being a little guy, was thrilled that a little guy could succeed so well. Gretzky has been my inspiration ever since. The way the Oilers are going, putting the Great One back in uniform couldn’t hurt them!
