  1. Crease cut goal in a game Crease cut goal in real life. Perhaps I could watch some old hockey games and then try some real life moves in NHL94 to alleviate the boredom of social distancing
  2. The Finnish Broadcasting Company is still using teletext, and since there are no NHL scores to report they have started reporting games from 2010. You can find the page here: [Hidden Content] (Nothing has changed, though. Mikko Koivu is still plus/minus -2, and we lost to Chicago...)
  3. Surprise as well, I'd say. If I would look at him trying to guess when he is shooting, I'd fail miserably. I'm really no goalie, but he looks unpredictable to me.
  4. My wife told of two students of hers, one a tested Coronavirus patient, the other a non-tested one. The other told her that he expects the recovery to take weeks, if not months. The other told his sickness took 4 days of feeling ok at times and then having muscle pains where one would have wanted to take morphine to endure them. Even the milder cases sound pretty horrible. They should arrange for an E-sports hockey tournament. That would make it nicer to endure this quarantine (I live in an area in Finland, that is now shut out from the rest of the country, to help slow down the spread of the disease).
  5. I liked the determination of the 7 year old Hunter Jones in the YouTube clip story. Not many kids would have had the determination to stay with their wish to switch roles for a year, and not many fathers would have required the wish to live for a year. Hunter is a good name for a kid that seems to set his sights to something he wants with a certain doggedness. He gave a good impression about his character. Filip Johansson spoke about being happy to go to Frolunda, which is a good team known for its training. He seemed to emphasise the training and his development. He was asked about the new arena as well, which he seemed happy about as well ( - perhaps this tells about a major change, that could help when he switches over to North America. His former team was from a really small town while Frolunda plays in the second biggest town in Sweden.
  6. To think that with bad luck I might up end up in Intensive Care and then become an ex-parrot without ever seeing hockey again. I think this Covid-19 sucks.
  7. The future looks pretty hopeful! Who will know where Fiala Kaprizov, Beckman etc be in a few years! I can't see the video links in the article, though. Not with my phone's Opera browser or Chrome.
  8. Yeah, it's all about how to “flatten the curve” as was said in this article with excellent visualisations: [Hidden Content]
  9. I had an Amiga 500 as well. I never realised how advanced the thing was back then. I did write my first study papers with it. The print quality was horrible, and the typeset for the Finnish ä- and ö-letters was even more horrendous, but it sure beat typing with a typewriter. The first computer in our family was a Sinclair ZX81 with no permanent memory storage (it had cassette tape external memory units, but we didn't have one). Every program had to be typed in using BASIC, every time you used it [Hidden Content] I learned some BASIC, and the quickly learned that I am too sloppy for coding. Too many typos, too many numbers switching places.
  10. That's an old school approach to hockey! The fight starts at 9:45 and the poor loser is then dragged to the sin bin, apparently for the sin of losing a hockey fight, as the winner just celebrates on ice
  11. After NHL94 the stick handling, special moves and defense options started getting more and more difficult, eventually getting so time consuming to learn, that I lost all interest. NHL94 can be just picked up when you have a moment to spare and you're good to go. The defence of the Devils was great, Scott Stevens the star.
  12. If it takes a month or two, it's hard to believe they would find time for the 11 games. I'm guessing there won't even be the playoffs.
  13. Well. Sounds like it's going to be many, long no-hockey-at-all months... sucks.
  14. It looks like a season that is going to end prematurely any day. I won't be able to watch this game either. I sure hope I haven't see the last Wild game of this season, as watching Fiala has been fun!
  15. 14 games, 7 points. +/- +2. If after the season it's still something like that, perhaps he'd be worth keeping. Tough decision this one. Risky, if not cheap.
  16. Wheww. Thankfully here in Finland hair and hockey have no connection whatsoever. I can keep my balding crew cut. Looks like it was a fun tournament, though
  17. Robson seems to be a promising goalie. The good thing in Kähkönen's injury is that Robson gets some experience needed.
  18. Fiala an expected gamebreaker, but huge goals from Gally and Rask too! A nice surprise! They just managed to get their act together, enough for the points. That's all we're asking. Great!
  19. This game is going to tell a lot about the Wild. Is post-BB Evason-led Wild just another post-Yeo Torchetti-led Wild, that initially plays well, only to fail miserably in the end? It's hard to imagine any playoffs success, if they lose to another non-playoffs team like this in a row. Let them show that recent successes have been for real
  20. He really should be ready to accept a prove-it deal. There aren't many teams left ready to give him a chance.
  21. They were really getting off their game in the last one, and now this: mistake after mistake, player after player. This game was a rise to the occasion kind of game, and they really dropped the ball. They needed to be better than they are at the moment, return to the level they can play at, but failed miserably. Hopefully they learn their lesson, but if they don't , it'll be another first round playoffs exit, if we even make it into the playoffs.
  22. A must win. Weak opponent, and just can't lose these ones because of the tight points situation. But... the Wild was getting sloppy last game. If they haven't corrected that, we'll be in trouble.
  23. Atkinson, Maroon, Palmieri, Toffoli, Niederreiter, Johnson - all players with similar AHL scoring years ago. But there's a lot more of forgotten players with similar scores as well. Maybe they should give Mayhew's linemates a mission to feed Mayhew for five games, and for Mayhew the order to shoot the puck whenever he can. Then he would know what he needs to do grab his chance and we would know if he would be able to do it. Possibly Mayhew and his linemates are confused about what's expected of him right now.
  24. Mayhew has seemed pretty invisible so far. I think that if a player scores like he does in the AHL, at least some of that should translate into the NHL, even if the player would not be able to grab a role in the NHL. He's had PP time, hasn't he, he has decent TOI. Why aren't things clicking? Is there something Evason should try to do, to see if that AHL goal scorer could be transformed into an NHL goal scorer? Do you think that Mayhew should do something differently, to really fight for that roster spot?
  25. Well that's a setback. Damnit. It would have been an immensely important experience to get into the AHL playoffs and compete there.
