im sure buffalo will be around during post-season. and i see san jose and calgary battling it out with minnesota somewhere in there. i detest san jose more than anything, but theyre looking good right now.
 
 now how about those kings. what a f'ing disappointment they are right now. and where did all the fighting go.

NHL, Google to show games on tape-delay
 Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal -
 2:19 PM PST Wednesday
 by Eric Fisher
 
 The National Hockey League has annunced a new multi-year video content deal with Google Inc., making full-length games from the '06-07 season and some classic games available for online purchase on a 48-hour, tape-delay basis.
 
 Pricing is still being finalized, but games are likely to cost $2.99 each after a free trial for the first two weeks of November. The deal arrives after a beta test on Google Video, as well as an offering last spring in which condensed NHL playoff games were sold on Cupertino-based Apple Computer Inc.'s iTunes store.
 
 Financial terms were not disclosed, but the deal is a revenue-sharing pact common to video download agreements. Mountain View-based Google will create an NHL-themed portion of the store where the official league content will be joined by hockey-oriented, user-generated videos.
 
 "This is obviously an on-demand world where people want what they want, when they want it, and where they want it," said NHL Interactive CyberEnterprises President Keith Ritter. "Google is a place where we definitely need to be."
 
 Discussions about a future video content deal with Apple are still ongoing, Ritter said, as are efforts to offer live streaming of games online. No timetable exists for either initiative.

feature-length article on ESPN about hockey's original redneck: "It's like if you took John Madden and overlaid him with Rush Limbaugh"

Ditto for the Ducks.  I knew they'd be good, but 15-2-5?!?!!
 
 I watched them just whipe the ice with the Sharks last night, and I can tell you this - those aren't the Mighty Ducks.

yeah, its really unlike him. i am at every home game and i have never really seen him do anything that looked like that. Briere musta said something to him and Ovie went Zidane on him!
 
 the Caps get your Ducks tomorrow night, should be a good game (finally some good games at the phone booth!)

Good rule, but I didn't see anything malicious.  Plus the guy came out for his next shift.

speaking of the caps, looks like my company has some left-over half-price uppers for next monday's game (12/11) against the penguins - $17 instead of $35.  if anyone wants to tag along, drop me a PM.  maybe ovie will lay out a member of the pens' D...
 
 sonick, we should meet up for a beer at the game (during or after).
