Didn't see Sunday's game against Phoenix as it was blacked out here on NHL Center Ice. The NHL thinks Albuquerque is a suburb of Phoenix.
Of course no one is writing about this, but the Dolans have withheld high definition feeds from NHL Center Ice for more than a month. They are having an eye-gouging girly fight with Gary Bettman over their website, and as a result they are taking away HD feeds from us paying fans!

Yes, the jerks that own the Rangers are punishing Isles, Devils, and Sabres fans by withholding HD feeds on NHL Center Ice, and no one will write about it.

Typical. NHL fans caught in the middle!

Grow up Dolan!

It was all on the line last night. A win and the Islanders Stanley Cup would still be in reach. And then, the burger clown Joey let a rebound in front and zowww a slapper and maple leafs win and our dream is gone, it is gone. you let us down joey. and u too, supa coach gordo and bailey and if only okposo could be cloned we would have a good team but now we are still last in the NHL and Tavares will end up with somebody else cause we are not lucky at lotteries you know. and ricky d and the architect cry as the dream has faded, it has faded.

It is so easy to point at the goaltender. I was reading all of your posts at the first of the season, when Danis could not stop a friggin truck. He also does not even have the best numbers in Bridgeport. Nobody has anything to say about that. hes hot now, but as the past has shown, he wil cool off quickly. he has only played half as much and does not even qualify to get his stats posted on NHL.com .

Joey is a good backup goalie and his good play kept the Isles in many games this year. He just has to work on those MacRebounds after making a good save, but hey- that is something that a goalie CAN work on, so that is a good thing.

Does playing the game not teach you about the game. Anyone can sit in the stands or sit in front of the TV and become the best anaylist on the planet. How can you be such a strong judge if you have never tried the sport yourself. Like you. bet you have never played either.

I am an uncoordinated 5 foot 2 girl, so not professionally, no. But, in school, floor hockey was the only sport that I didnt suck at playing. Does that count lol?

I am a science writer in real life- but I dont think that I write about a subject such as astronomy any less effectively just because Ive never been to the flippin moon. I dont think that I have trouble explaining seismic activity or a volcano just because Ive never ran screaming for my life chased by a river of hot lava. Do you see where Im going with this?

Play the game or not, I know my ****. ;)
