Octopus swinging by Al Sobotka will result in $10,000 fine.: "Because matter flies off the octopus and gets on the ice when he does it." :(

The Islanders have officially gone batshit.: 15-year deal for DiPietro, $67.5 million. Second in length only to teammate Yashin, who's is a 10-year deal. And by batshit I mean yes, he's a good goalie, but 15 years is a loooong time in the crease (or to expect that kind of consistency).

Pacers to face charges: No word on whether Marty Mcsorley will be employed to represent them in court.

The money comes pouring,: but can Holik make good on $45 million over five years and bring the Rangers to the playoffs (even if Bure and Lindros couldn't?) Is Detroit getting another premier goaltender? And, with salaries getting downright silly, will the summer of 2004 (the end of the current collective bargaining agreement) forebode a lockout season?

Straight to DVD for a reason: It's not in the same rink as "Slap Shot," but "Slap Shot 2" doesn't stink as bad as the 2001-02 Florida Panthers. There are two Bobby Orr punchlines, the Hanson Brothers, and an adequate cast of characters. This wasn't even to close to watching "Mad Love." You won't light yourself on fire and run around the neighborhood to alert friends NOT to rent the DVD. I, for one, will rent this movie, since I have seen the first more times than I have had a hot meal. My favorite sports commentator takes a look at the sequel.

NHL and Google sittin in a tree. A W E S O M E

I feel like it's going to be christmas every day until June. And, I didn't fork over the bucks for Center Ice for the first time in 5 years. I love my company :)

I got your fan appreciation RIGHT HERE!

I'm not disproving because he's a poor role model, I'm disproving because he's an asshole.

I always, always, always hated AI, mostly stemming from the time that I lived in Philly, which was at the time of the whole throw your wife out of the house naked skip practice pull guns on people stage. What a loser.

East Shakeup - What a Night

Chicobangs and I were at the Rangers/Sens game. Great fun, though I wish it was a closer contest. I can't freaking WAIT for the playoffs to begin, and yeah, the coverage has been lacking, but give them a day.

Sweden captures Olympic hockey gold

Another Red Wing homer here! What a game. During the second intermission, I had a vision of a Nick Lidstrom laser shot scoring the go ahead goal. You can thank me any time now.

Is Detroit as deep as they used to be?

Yes, the Wings are just as deep, and they have good scouting to thank for that. They've lost some of their depth, no doubt about it, but they've added a few players who have exceeded expectations (Samuelsson, Lebda), and have a great rookie in Kronwall, who's just getting back from ACL surgery.

The Malice In The Palace

2 - I feel like some of you might be misinterpreting his *suntanning*. Look, we know Artest has trouble controling his temper. Isn't possible that the *suntanning* was the equivalent of trying to take 10 deep breaths. Isn't that what your supposed to do ... lie down, relax, picture a warm beach?

He could have gone to the bench, no? It was provocative.

3 - He didn't hit the fan he went after. The fan said Artest grabbed him and was asking "did you throw it, did you throw it?" Someone hit Artest in the head with a full beer ... I don't have a problem with him trying to apprehend the guy who did it.

Are you high? Throwing a punch or not, he fucking assaulted the guy, no doubt about it. I do have a problem with him trying to apprehend the guy who did it. That's security's job.

4 - The guy who actually threw the beer was a major jerk.

Well, duh.

5 - Artest goes back down on the floor and another fan starts squaring up with him. Artest has just been hit in the head with an unknown object and sucker punched from behind at this point. I think he's justified in protecting him.

Ok, if a fan goes on the court and postures, Artest can defend himself. Fine. But, he does throw the first punch there, too.

In summary, this was the NBA's fault. The Detroit fans were treating the Pacers like they were animals in the zoo (IMO there's nothing I more repugnant than people who taunt animals at the zoo). For the NBA to put their players in an environment like that was negligent.

What are you talking about? What kind of environment? Were the Detroit fans any different than any other fans before the incident? Have you ever been to an Eagles game? The only stadium in the country with it's own freaking courthouse? Bottom line is that no one saw this coming, and if the security wasn't quick to react, well, fault them for that, but there wasn't an environment set up or anything. It was just another game. Until then.

The Malice In The Palace

It's amazing how the longer this thread gets, the more ridiculous the punishment scenarios get.

Honestly? I think that the suspensions are dead on. Except Sports Network got it wrong.

The Malice In The Palace

Yes, it was entertaining. I can't deny it. In that car wreck sort of way.

Did Ben overreact? Possibly. But why was Artest in the game at that point at all, and why was he making fouls like that when his team was so far ahead?

Sorry. I have a soft spot for the 'fro.

Getting tired of hearing that Wallace started this shit. I mean, that was a pretty fucking flagrant foul.

The Malice In The Palace

Hold up. Lying down and not getting involved in more shouting and shoving is considered "provocative"? He was actually in the middle of a radio interview at the time. It's not like he stood on the table and gave the finger to the fans, or starting jawing at someone behind the bench. He was literally doing nothing at all. In fact, Wallace tried to entice him to fight again (throwing a towel at him) and he refused to do anything. It was pretty much over until that f*cknut lobbed the bottle/cup at him...

Oh, come on. If he wanted to diffuse, he should have gone to the fucking bench. He was not exactly getting in anyone's face, but he was acting like the smug shithead that had me stop watching the NBA long ago (until last year). He wasn't an innocent bystander, and he grabbed the headset and laid down to taunt Wallace. No doubt about it.

Meanwhile, a champion was crowned tonight...

I must say, that was some of the finest basketball I've seen. The passing, the selflessness, the pace, all fantastic. Consider me a new WNBA fan. Congrats!

Pistons!

I'm just waiting for the interview in which Shaq-fu says that as long as they bring their game, that the Pistons shouldn't be a problem.
