Went to the Skate with the Greats event at the Rokefeller center yesterday. It was a benefit for the Ronald McDonald House (charity for kids with terminal cancer). The Rangers are major sponsors and many players help out. The even was honoring Brian Leech (his number is getting retired at the garden tonight). Got to meet Messier, Mike Richter, and Brian Leech. Also, Adam Graves, Jeff Beukeboom, Tie Domi, ROd Gilber, and many others came out to support the charity. Awsome event. All the players were very cool and patient. They stood around for hours taking pictures and signing autographs for people and just chatting with everybody. Mike Richter is the friendliest, nicest fuckin guy on the planet.

The only "great" player listed would be Adam Graves, a former Red Wing. Mark

Obviously you are new here. Verbal bashing of forum members and their teams of choice is highly encouraged on the Hockeyground. That is an unwritten rule around here. Also, the team that plays in the toronto area can only be typed in small case letters. The preferred spellings are leaves, loafs or laffs. Please make note. And it is also commonly understood and accepted that the Wings of 07-08 are probably the greatest assembly of hockey talent ever produced. Mark

You are lucky the only team I like other than the Rangers are the Wings. And the greatest Wings team of all time was the 1997 Wings, because of the Russian 5 and Scotty Bowman, who should be considered Russian anyway. So basically, for a brief flash, the Western world got a glimpse of how Hockey should be played: Soviet Style, which is the greatest Hockey system ever known to man. Other than that, the NY Rangers rule, based on wonderful players, even better fans, and the greatest Arena since the Roman Coloseum. I think I'll fit right in here.

"Soviet Style" Smoking between periods? Signing a big contract and promptly adding 20 pounds? Disappearing during the playoffs? "and the greatest Arena since the Roman Coloseum." Yes. Both enjoy/enjoyed regular displays of homosexuality. Mark

Yeah, Soviet style. The most beautiful Hockey that resulted in the most Olympic Gold Medals, World Championship gold medals (65% of all participations), and some of the most exciting players to ever play the game. More acomplishments as a system than anyone even came close to, even beating the best players the NHL had to offer on numerous occasions. When the USSR fell appart and Russian players were allowed to play in the NHL, they literally changed the game. As fas as the Garden being a hotbed of homosexuality - yeah, we did have Ricky Martin play, but that's nothing compared to the faggotry that will be on display at the Joe Louis Arena TONIGHT: Circ du Solei!

Different styles for different reffing systems, IMO. On International ice I think the Swede style is pretty impressive as well. They play traditional slots, but spread way the fuck out and loop back like crazy to set up their plays.

lol, Domi is fucking scary. He's a midget, and I'm 6'5 and he scared the shit out of me. He looked like he was half a second away from taking a shot at somebody at all times. Kinda like a little Wallid.

The Europeans (I include the Russians and former republics) make the Canadians look like thugs and amateurs on the ice. Slowly, the Canadians are falling behind the rest of the world (including the Americans) with their "rock 'em, sock 'em" bullshit. "He looked like he was half a second away from taking a shot at somebody at all times. Kinda like a little Wallid." His lack of intelligence causes this. Kinda like a rhino, mean and dumb. If he gets confused and angry, a rhino will just start smashing shit. Mark

"Yeah they stopped letting the Russians near Tim Hortons" I didn't think you could put mayo on a donut, but the Krutov proved you could. Mark
