Another instance where googling could have saved an organization a chunk of money, and where a documented b-hole fails upward into an undeserved windfall, while the victim just gets re-re-traumatized.

I don't know if any of you have been playing Immaculate Grid but now that Sports Reference owns it they've come out with a hockey version:

immaculategrid.com/hockey

Idea is pretty simple. You have nine guesses to try and fill the grid with players that fit into each box while trying to get the lowest possible score by going with the answer the fewest people answered. So if the column is Maple Leafs and the Row is 50 goal scorers, well, you'd score better with Rick Vaive than Matthews.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

There's also a similar game puckdoku.com, so you can have 2 games a day.

Babe Dye never hit 50. Too few games in a season back then.

Quote from: Arn on May 25, 2023, 09:02:46 AMNot quite NHL, but I know we've touched on this kind of thing in game day threads, so just throwing out as a discussion point, but a few changes around penalty rules in the European Champions Hockey League next season.

https://www.championshockeyleague.com/en/news/chl-introduces-on-ice-rule-innovations-for-2023-24-season

QuoteMinor penalties dealt the same as major: a team which caused a minor penalty will remain shorthanded even if the opposing team score a goal
 
Serving delayed penalties: a minor penalty will be served even if a goal is scored while a delayed penalty is pending
 
Shorthander erases current minor penalty: if a shorthanded team score, the minor penalty against will end


So I wasn't sure about this, but I've quite enjoyed these changes. The PP even if a team scores on a delayed penalty i think is the "best" of them.

In one of the games recently Belfast scored shorthanded, which also meant the oppositions PP was ended, and the crowd response was amazing. So I enjoyed that, but I'm not sure it's really changed the game itself as to how teams PK as yet (assuming the idea is to encourage the PK to try and score). Maybe something like removing icing from a PK would be a better change?

I imagine someone will be crunching the stats to see how many times teams score more than once per penalty, but I haven't seen it happen in any of the games I've seen as yet.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.
