I think modern engineering has your back covered. It won't be a giant swimming pool unless they want it to be.

For anecdotal evidence, the driest place in the city tends to be underground.

I was just watching the NHL Network and they were talking about this play.  One of the commentators said, and I quote, "I feel bad for Mark Giordano.  I know the intent wasn't there."

I want to strap this guy to a chair and force him to watch the Giordano knee on Fowler repeatedly until 2019.  Giordano is a dirty thug.

He and Brown consistently go knee to knee and get away with it.

Should be 2 years. It's mindblowing Cogliano got the same treatment. Damn giordano is a disgrace.

Any reason Laviolette would start Saros against Flames ?

He wanted to hand the Flames an easy win. Flames are unstoppable atm. Despite the Ducks recent 5 game winning streak they keep losing ground to Calgary.

That was actually an impressive rebound. Tim Peel has gonads of steel to have a shot bank off his junk from the corner and into the goal.

Not sure if anyone is watching this Caps/Canes game...but Ovechkin's 2nd goal...WOW what a missed call by the ref...

The Cane player in the shooting lane, challenging Ovechkin, gets pushed completely out of the way by a Caps player...and then Ovechkin just takes advantage of that new, open space and skates right up and scores. I mean...that was pretty bad.

Ovechkin with another hat trick, that's 28 goals in 31 games! He's scoring at nearly a goal per game pace! I don't think that's sustainable but that's insane. What is he going to end up with at this pace 70 goals for the season?

Star players seem to always get preferential treatment from the referees.  Should not happen but it does.  Especially that guy.

If they called a penalty on the play, they would have to take criticism and heaven forbid that ever happen...

Those egomaniacs with a whistle are the worst scenarios.

just watched the game summary on youtube. That should have been an interference call. I say that as someone who is a fan of both the Capitals and Ovechkin.

agreed...and I, too, am an Ovi fan. Honestly...all I want is Ovi to score goals haha but that one shouldn't have happened at all!

Yeah, in the moment I'm sure they feel that way...but honestly, either way you're having people complain...so you might as well make the right call and have THAT be the complaint. We need better refs...there are some good ones out there...but it's far and few between.

Forward Patrik Berglund has been suspended indefinitely by the organization due to failure to report to the team.

Crazy. If Skinner has been a perfect fit in Buffalo, Berglund has been the opposite. He’s been terrible. Should keep reporting to collect his paycheque though. Is he trying to force a trade?

As a referee myself, for the most part the game simply happens too fast to give star players preferential treatment. It’s more likely they just missed it in the moment, and even if they realised after a few seconds they aren’t going to make a call that late. 

I do think TEAMS get treated better or worse, as it’s easier to be biased against or towards a colour in a split second decision.

Seems Flyers fired Hekstol and hired Quenneville. Not 100% confirmed yet.

Scratch that, that team is a dumpster fire. No hopes. Battle with Kings for best #1 pick chances.

On a side note, everyone was loling at Pacific Division. Flames Ducks Sharks and Knights are pretty hot in the last 10..
