Edmonton Oilers...

it is a shame that they had to split up. i wish just one time a team in any sport would just stay together to see how many they could have won.

Oilers being one ... the 70's A's and the 90's Cowboys With The Jimmy as the coach....basketball has seen its share.

I think they get bored with it.  After doing the same thing over and over... their attitude is probably "Wheres the challenge?"  Then, when you consider that these are full contact sports we are talking about, I'm sure injury has a lot to do with it too.

I, for one, am hoping that my Patriots don't 'split up'. .. but it inevitably happens sooner or later.  I'm still hoping for later!

When it comes to hockey, how about the RedWings.   They seemed to have gotten it together in two different eras.  Earlier in the 2000's, and even though they lost this year, they are at it again now.

Max,

I do believe the Red Wings let one get away this year. JMHO..!!!

I look for them to be the team to beat this coming year if they stay healthy.

Good Day Max

Detroit's problem is they are getting a little old...  need to find some youth.  But I think they still have a couple of stellar years left in that team.  And if the past is any indication of what will happen in the future, that will be enough time for them to find some new players to replace the old guys.

Max ..
I follow all sports of interest. Yet go into withdraw after the Super Bowl.

So you are correct after I did some research on the Red Wings. They have enough there to go another 2-4 years before the play starts to decline a tad.

To bad Dom. H did not have a few younger boys that played hockey and are coming into their own now.....lol

We will have to see how it goes. I still think they should have won it all last year. Just ran out of gas I suppose.

Hockey is my second favorite sport behind football.   I got into it because my father was very much into it when I was a kid.  He used to love the big bad Bruins of the early 70's, with Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito (or however you spell his name), etc...    That was a little before my time (I was 4 or 5 when that was happening), but I used to hear all about the spectacular stuff Bobby Orr used to do.  I'm one of those few that will argue that Bobby Orr was the best to play the game...

No argument here...yet I would put Howe in the same boat with him.

Good Day Max
Hawk

Does Wayne Gretsky fit in that boat?
quitesanemax

No.

Everyone thinks Wayne Gretsky was the best player ever.   Not many people believe Orr or Howe were.  So he doesn't fit in the same boat we were talking about...

Max
Hawk

Not being much of a Hocky fan, I think Wayne saved the game. But the no-hit rule teams seemed to employ concerning him, gave him a great advantage.
quitesanemax

Gretsky would definitely be in the same boat if its the best players ever to play the game category we were talking about.  Gretsky was a great, but I agree with you, that he was a wuss.  Orr played the game like it was supposed to be played... and his career was shortened because of that.  He didn't have enough time to show how great he was.

Of course my opinion is that of a big Bruins fans... so it might be slightly biased.  Lol.

Hawk

Orr

I remember seeing Orr at the end, and he looked old beyond his years.

I think all sports fans know his name, even if they are not hockey fans. I liked Mario Limuix (bad spelling on name I'm sure) I just thought the guy added some class to hockey.

Plus I love to watch the Swedish Hockey team during the winter olympics, its always enteresting to see how good they do against the worlds greatest pros.

Max and Hawk...
 
Wayne for sure and then the Hull's and Patric Roy would be another.

Wayne was good for hockey at the time. If memory serves me correctly was there not a do not touch Wayne for awhile rule in NHL. I would take Brett Hull or Mario L and a few others before Wayne.


Good Day

Hockey is also my second favorite sport behind Football.

But I do believe that hockey is the one sport that is still basically blue collar. It seems that over the year the other sports, especially Football and Basketball, ahve succumbed to alot of "Political Correctness" and I think that has weakened the integrity of those sports.

ESPN  has become a political blog as when it comes to football as much as it is a Football show. It's always so important to talk about the most recent suspensions and mouthy players.

Think about it. When is the last time you heard a hockey player suspened for drug or gun related incidents?
quitesanemax

I guess the NHL allows them to vent their frustrations in the rink.

Yeah, it seems like some of the classiest players come out of the NHL.
