Re: Fantasy Talk

Not really fantasy, but whatever...

They're marketing the new EA NHL12 game here with Börje Salming in a Canucks uniform.....

Is this a new Sundin like signing in the makings? :eh:

A Clash of Civilisations

Italian politician arrested in Stockholm for beating his son in public:

Corporal punishment of children has been illegal in Sweden since 1979.
Apparently it's still considered OK in Italy.

Re: The War On Voting

As an election officer, I appreciate the reasoning behind having people present identification to vote, albeit that piece of legislation was only introduced in Sweden a couple of years ago, and can still be waived if someone else, having identification, confirms the identity of the person lacking id...

Re: 11/12 Training Camp Thread

So what about: Henrik Tommernes - are they considering his 2.5 seasons at Vastra Frolunda? Will he come to main camp? Peter Andersson - did his bad ankle injury set him back? Considering he has an NHL ELC, it is strange that he is not at prospect camp... S_C Well, since both Tömmernes and Andersson...

remember Per...the only reason your primary language is not German is because of the USA...if the Nazi's wanted to take your country back then it would have taken about 45 minutes...stop being so smug... Actually, the Soviets beat the Germans, but the US arriving at the scene right before the curta...

The War On Voting

The USA is already the Western democracy that has the lowest turnout of voters in general elections, but this is not enough! While most countries do what they can to increase voter turnout, the GOP has decided the US should do the opposite. As inconvenient as it is to register to vote, it can still ...

Re: Byfuglien arrested for drunk boating, also got fat

So Byfuglien is starting off his career in Manitoba on the right foot. First, he gets arrested for boating while impaired and then refuses giving blood and urine samples. Apparently this can potentially affect his ability to enter and work in Canada. http://sports.nationalpost.com/2011/09/02/arrest...

Re: Fantasy Talk

I've been in a Yahoo fantasy league since 2002. Mostly Canadians, a few Yanks, me, an Aussie and as of late a Norwegian. Really hurts to be beaten by a Norwegian. :mad: Not a keeper league, we do a new draft every fall. I used to be able to get a good team by hording sleeper Swedes, but it's getting...

Re: Wade Belak found dead in his condo

As sad as it is what he did, its even worse for his daughters. I'm trying to have sympathy for Wade, and clearly something was wrong, but to do that to his girls is beyond selfish. My gut reaction is the same. Suicide does seem a very selfish act. But today we know that there is a chemical imbalanc...

Re: Wade Belak found dead in his condo

Hey Per I don't mean to be a dink but do you have any indication that Belak actually used steroids? A quick Google search doesn't reveal anything.. Unless I am missing something, of course. If not - it seems a bit disrespectful to hijack the discussion of a dead guy to talk about a problem we have ...

Re: Best War Movie?

Perhaps the best war novel I have ever read. Even a notch above Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls . Seconded. FWTBT is one of my favorite books, but All Quiet is a monster. If you like these books, which you of course should, they're masterpieces, you may also like Der Zug war pünktlich by Heinri...

Doctor Ritchi Morris, Ph.D., ND, a New York based sports psychologist found some startling revelations. Dr. Morris took a group of 16 elite bodybuilders and professional football players who regularly use anabolic/androgenic steroids and found a direct correlation between the drug use and a depress...
