    Someone should've checked the average weather for this time of year.

    In Ontario the media push Nostrils as the best player in the world.

    In BC the media push Diving Petey as the best player in the world.

    In the USA the media push MacKinnon as the best player in the world.

    We’re surrounded.

    it’s pandering to the US audience for sure, combined with probably a bit of ignorance. The guy playing for a US team and the #1 American player will definitely get brought up more on a US broadcast than Canadian players (let alone German players) on Canadian teams.

    No offense. I understand the context. I'm not surprise or ever surprised that we're subsumed pretty much all the time with 'Merica perspective living in the shadow of a giant. In context it is a quick, throw away sound byte but still reflects the narrow cast view. NHL needs to do a way better job of marketing its stars.

    I think this is a cool idea given they can’t have fans and need to generate revenue somehow.

    Bettman may be a lot of things but he can’t control the weather.

    I agree. The issue is just that with America being so obsessed with America, the majority of fans getting into a sport that has never been overly popular there will probably remain ignorant of non-American players. Majority of basketball stars - American, football stars - American, baseball stars - American.

    That's going to be quite a long intermission if they go after sunset.

    I guess the team needed a new logo before they could reacquire the classic one, as the dateline says it was in October 2011.

    agree.

    sorry the other point I wanted to make is I think a lot of media and peeps are sleeping on how much better Connor’s own zone game has improved. He’s been killing it this year.

    The league doesn't respect McDavid, as is evidenced by the constant clutching, holding and tripping allowed against him we see most nights. The media just follows their lead.

    Yeah, if McDavid and Matthews were drafted by the opposite franchises, McDavid would be getting the royal treatment and Matthews would be chopped liver.

    The league has enough problems without creating its own like this completely unsurprising Lake Tahoe issue.

    Embarrassing.

    That is Down Goes Brown’s opinion.

    And my questions are who is Down Goes Brown any why should I give a f*** about what he thinks?

    In the end if you don’t like it all I can suggest is don’t watch.

    He's just poking some fun at it. He's a really good writer. I have one of his books, highly recommend it. Guy is really funny, and intertwines hockey and humor in a great way.

    Oh I know. @Tippetts Mustache seems a bit grouchy about the game :nod:

    I’ve never followed DGB. What book did he write?
