My girlfriend bought me a Winnipeg Jets jersey for Christmas last year. Seeing as I was born there, I'll always be a Jets fan. Going to the games and Seeing Selanne, Essensa, and Zhamnov in the blues.

Nowadays my focus has really shifted to the Canucks. Luongo is nipping at Marty Brodeur's heels, and the Sedin twins are the best players to watch play together hands down.

Soon, obviously. Well, if the 2009 season is soon...

I actually was at the Leafs Game in Pitt 2 seasons ago where the power went out.

Everyone was chanting "NEW ARENA". It was pretty sweet.

Yeah, he does get a lot more attention than he deserves right now, but giving this kind of performance in his late 20's is nothing to laugh at. That and the Panthers and Canucks can't score goals to save their lives.

Anybody else watch the all-star game when they had Marty Turco on the microphone out on the ice? That in-game banter was far and away my favorite part of that game.

I went to a fighting sioux game with my hockey team last year, and the fans are amazing, all the college kids are crazy and its just a fun time. the Arena is amazing. Where i live in Winnipeg there are no NHL teams, but i think there is a possibility of one coming here. Although it would prob leave after 5 years.

I am glad you had fun at the Sioux game. Englestad arena is an impressive building. The Sioux is about all Grand Forks has, so we are quite rabid about our college hockey. It would be nice to see Winnipeg get a team again, I had some fun going to Jets games when I was younger. It was a shame that the Jets & Nords left Canada.

Red Wings. I have been a huge fan since the mid 80's when Steve Yzerman began the turnaround. If the NHL would just do the right thing and put them in the East where they belong, all would be good. The fact that they only play Toronto and Montreal once a year is ridiculous. The travel schedule for the playoffs sucks. As a fan, I end up watching games that start at 10:30 PM and go until 1:30 AM. This blows when I have to get up at 6:00. The teams in the East never change time zones during the playoffs. I keep hoping that one of the teams in the East moves out West so they can make the change. The problem is that the Wings are the best draw in Hockey and the West needs their help.

Wing used to be my #2 team. Ever since Stevie Y and Shanny left, I don't have the same feeling for them.

Not sure you can say hands down when you have the likes of Crosby & Malkin skating together. I saw them play live vs the Flyers and they are pretty amazing together.

I am a Blackhawks fan.

I feel for you. As a Wings fan, I hate the Blackhawks, but it's a shame that the ownership has let such a great franchise fall as far as they have. I really would like to see them come back. I miss the old Norris Division days when it would be a war each time they played eachother.

I am a Blackhawks fan.

Well, I've seen Patty Kane, and Akim Aliu (2007 1/3 draft picks) play multiple times and they are sick, so things may be looking up.

No doubt that years and years of piss-poor performance and early draft picks should lead to some talent, but the Chicago Blackhawks will never be a great team as long as Dollar Bill Wirtz is in charge.

They won't even televise their home games.

    • IMO The phrase depends on what you mean.  If you are saying what will lead to a lower handicap, the data clearly shows that better driving and better approach shots will result in lower handicaps and scores. HOWEVER, if you are looking at the daily variance in score within your range I would suggest that putting/short game are more likely to do it. Before you get upset. I am suggesting that over 18 holes most people's ball striking tends to return to baseline. If you are a 5 Handicap you rarely hit it OB and generally hit 8-10 fairways. When you are off you miss a few more and don't get many wedges inside 15'. If you are an 18 you generally have a few tee shots that cost strokes and some BAD approach shots. Sure you will occasionally stuff one but not all day. But the difference in making a 2-3 putts vs just missing is noticeable in your score THAT day. So if you play off a 12 you are unlikely to suddenly average 20' on GIR approach shots but you might make a few long putts and wins some Skins. <Ducking andcovering>
    • In a controlled experiment, all variables must be held to a constant except for the one variable that is being tested. In this situation, Jack or Tiger (or Hogan, Jones, Snead, Old Tom, etc) would be the one allowable variable. Any other variables makes it hypothetical, theoretical, speculative, etc.  It's not that I don't care to compare at all. It is that you are comparing different data. As a scientist that just won't work for me. More than one independent variable leads to errors - courses, equipment, training, money, etc. 
    • That's not "agreeing to disagree." That's just you not being willing to form an opinion based on multiple facts (I wouldn't call them variables - Jack's career accomplishments aren't varying at this point). You're assuming that your definition differs. Ostensibly, the "greatest to ever play the game" will rack up the best (or nearly the best) records, stats, and achievements. You'd have a hard time making a case for Tom Kite as the GOAT. Or even Phil Mickelson. Or Arnie. Or Snead, Hogan, Jones. Or - and I don't mean this in a negative way because this isn't a "human values" type of thing at all and it says nothing about you as a person - you're just too lazy to compare, or you don't care enough to compare, or something. Others feel that you can compare. I think they've both produced enough of a body of evidence to compare, so I do.
    • in the old days, Chocolate only had to compete against vanilla and Strawberry.  So it was pretty good. But today, Chocolate has to compete against gourmet variations in the 1000's.  And it STILL WINS Maybe it's an opinion, but it's very compelling opinion. Chocolate - GOAT
    • I have never replied to this thread before, because the last 9 months I have been dreadful, and not playing to my handicap. I joined a new club, and the course is so much tighter, and totally unforgiving. To be honest, I think the old course I was playing on complimented my golf. The last week or so I have been playing better, and yesterday I shot two under net. Of course, next time out may not be so good, but I am enjoying the glory while it lasts.
