Charles Wang has no business attending their practices. He has to learn to keep of it and stop meddling with the team. He should stick with the business side of things. Geez...that's one of the problems with this franchise. Ownership needs to learn their role. Yes they spend their money on the team but stay away and watch from the press box.

But all the rebounds went in after he unnecessarily dove across the ice and left an empty net.

WOW Wang at practice. that must have been as inspirational as that motivational speaker in the movie "the Natural". the only difference is you could understand the guy in "the Natural". WOW A whole 1 1/2 hours for practice? That's really going to solve all the on ice problems and I'm sure that confidence building speech about DiP by Okposo should really inspire the team. Nothing like a pep rally led by a seasoned veteran to get the team going. PHOOEY! Don't ya love my Christmas spirit!

People still care about this once great game that was "gayeddddd up" over the years.

Reasons why hockey now blows:

1) Gary Betman

2) Holding the stick penalty

3) Gary Betman

4) Over expansion

5) Gary Betman

Do you loser hockey fans realize that the NHL has no tv contract except versus. No NBC, no ESPN..NOTHING. The "sport" blows!

We're aware of the TV contract. The sport is great. It's idiots like who who think that a holding the stick penalty takes away from the game and then blabbs about how the sport blows.

How has the game been gaaaayed up ? By not allowing bench clearing brawls ?

Ehtnic, not racist. there is a difference. If I were to refer to our president elect as Caddylac barrack, that would be racist but I would never do that. Yes, I am just like Andy Sipowicz from NYPD Blue. I hate everybody.

I like how the photo they have for the story seems to have DP saying, "Why?". He probably wakes up in cold sweats dreaming of returning to the net...if I were him I'd be cleaning out my snowblower like Sakic did.
