    I’m reading a lot of posts demanding Hartley be run out of town. Fair enough, but if you are calling for Bobber’s head, you should at least propose a possible replacement. “Get rid of that GUY!” isn’t good enough. Tell me which coach should replace him if indeed Flames brass takes the the easy road and sacks the coach.

    I would personaly like to thank all the oiler trolls for coming to all the other nation pages and sharing their increadable wisdom. I find it funny how there was not a single blog on Kassians assault of an official yet oiler trolls and bloggers have no problem looking down their nose at the wideman situation.

    I believe the nation network is at a cross roads they can continue to promot hate or promote hockey discussion. FN ban trolls regularly including our own village idiots when required. Some say this censorship. I don’t agree, I think there are more good hockey fans that want to discuss their teams streanths and weaknesses than trolls that enjoy pi$$ing people off because their own personal life suck so much.

    • For Pete's Sake!

      The fact that you call Kassian’s slight incidental push while he was skating past an official an “assault,” and Wideman’s full on crosscheck to the back of Henderson causing a concussion a “situation,” illustrates that you have absolutely no credibility.

      If Kassian had done what Wideman did, you Calgary hypocrites would be calling for a lifetime ban from the NHL. Get real and stop whining.

            Man, that’s one thing Vancouver has going for it…the women are incredibly beautiful. Walking through Downtown, mt.Pleasant, Kits, it doesn’t matter one bit, the women there are gorgeous, all the way across the board. It’s a real shame they all seem to have to the same complaint about the soft-handed, mealy-mouthed man boys of Vancouver. It sure works out in my favour when I visit, but I still feel sorry that their only dating options involve a bunch of glassy-eyed haircuts in deep Vs.

            Can we all just take a quick moment of silence for the dating lives of women from Van? Then we can all have a great weekend. (Again, except for the women of Vancouver. Bless their hearts.)
