Will you watch the world juniors? I think it is stupid. It is such a big deal here in Canada but we have an unfair advantage due to hosting the tournamrenti in perpetuity and we are te only country in the wordl that cares about it. Plus these kids are half my age, so dignity prevents me from rooting for them like a teenaged girl. I will not waste my time on this and instead will enjoy soe of the fine amenities that stittsville ON has to offer.

Do you like the junior tourney?

i've always really liked it. even if half the games are blowouts the big ones are usually pretty awesome plus every game is good for seeing players you wouldn't get to see play any other time. the russia-sweden game i went to last year was basically a blowout but it was still such an impressive display of skill and basically i'll watch any hockey game that's widely available on tv or online.

the canada-usa and canada-russia games from last year were amazing, but its tough to get really excited about a tournament where canada's won 16 of the last 27 years. its like patting yourself on the back for dominating NHL10 on rookie.

Proposed rule changes:

1. All junior players must grow embarrassing, wispy mustaches for the tourney.
2. Any team playing Canada is spotted two goals.
3. Must be held in Moose Factory.

One thing I will agree with is that the hockey is generally generally not very good. There's sloppy D, sloppy Offense, and sloppy Goaltending. I enjoy the tournament and cheer for Canada but not on anywhere near the level I would cheer for them at the Olympics. Like, last year I was probably more concerned about Karlsson looking good in the finals than with Canada winning (though I'm sure a lot of that has to do with them winning so often that it's kind of taken for granted).

I agree that it's unsophisticated but that doesn't mean it's not still to fun.

when I watch these kids I think of the people who used to beat me up in high school and that is why I hate them. These guys would make fun of me and pick on me even now even though they are 16 and I am in my late 30's. Most of these clowns will never play in the NHL and over 76% of junior hockey players are illiterate and the majority have committed sexual assault. Franklly WJ teams should be sent to reform school.

Actually that applies to most NHL players. These guys with the exception of maybe Kessel, Todd White, and Ondrej Pavelec are drug addicts, crimjinals, gamblers, and date rapists. Is it because hockey skillz are correlated with anti-social behvioiur or because their brains have turned to jello from concussions? Who knows? Why do we cheer for them>? I do not know myself and think it's because most of us secretly wish we could live that criminal lifestyle and bang tons of chicks.

Gretzky ran a gambling ring and Heatley is a murderer. QED

the clowns that do make it to the NHL are just as bad, is the problem just that you can picture these guys as high school jerks? the TSN like live coverage of scrimmage games in practice is obviously pretty grating and i'm watching the Spengler Cup right now which makes me miss the Paul Romanuk days when no one really cared enough to even be critical like this because all the games were on at 6 am.
but i'm also excited as i always am to get a look at these prospects i never see like Fowler and Kreider for the US, and leafs pick Jerry D'Amigo made that team too, Tatar will be back with Slovakia, that Finnish guy the oilers drafted etc. plus there's a leaf pick on Canada for the first time i think since Ian White? i mean whatever it's been freezing rain all day and why would anyone go anywhere near stores or anything on boxing day so i'll be here drinking and watching Canada kick the shit out of Latvia and not feeling any less sophisticated a hockey fan because of it.

the other thing is a lot of what's so entertaining owe to the fact that the kids are assholes without really having to answer for it in the media or whatever, and it operates like most minor hockey tournaments where some games get so chippy and teams are just taking runs at each other like what's going on in tonight's game. and you know that's always really fun to watch.

The stupid goal differential counting is the problem. They should have a maximum amount you can get from one game. Say, I dunno, 5?

Is there any fucking streams for this stupid shit? There seems to be one at atdhe, but there's gotta be some alternative.
