    Well, I guess no one has posted in this thread for a while and looks like no one will again after I post.

    As a Nucks fan, damn we were close. But in the end, the usual happens and we should all be used to it by now. We lose in the finals. What's worse is those damn idiot rioters. I mean again... seriously. Damn idiots. If this is the result of us making to the finals or losing in the finals, I wish we never do it again. Human lives is >>>>>>>>> than a hockey game.

    Those guys that started this stuff were not hockey fans. They came prepared to cause problems. These guys came with tools ready to vandalize and set fires. Last time I remember, you don't bring those things to watch a hockey game. Win or lose, this would have happened. They need to throw the book at those morons. The whole mob mentality was scary. Look at all those women jumping on top of cars and posting on facebook. I was disgusted.

    Hey, Guys, do you know that the International Hockey Federation which is better known as FIH.This new sets of rules were introduced in the month of January and will formally be implemented in every international hockey matches, though in the hockey world cup too. If you need live insights check bitly.com/app100mph
    These new set of rules have forwarded a brand of changes in playing hockey.Those changes are-
    1. No equipment etc. to be placed on the goals
    2. Clarification that decisions taken prior to correcting a team having more than the permitted number of players on the pitch cannot be changed if time and/or play has already been re-started
    3. Clarification that any change between goalkeeping options, even for Players with Goalkeeping Privileges, either on or off the pitch, must take place as a substitution
    4. Change of the description of ‘gloves’ to ‘hand protection’; specification of the size of hand protection which may be used, both for normal play and to defend Penalty Corners; addition of guidance regarding the use of knee pads when defending Penalty Corners
    5. Deletion of ‘single’ in color of Goalkeeper shirt
    6. Adjustment to the guidance to ‘A ball is also considered dangerous …’
    7. Addition into guidance that if a ball hits discarded Penalty Corner defense equipment then a Free Hit will result if outside the circle or a Penalty Corner if inside the circle
    8. The changes to Rule 13.2, which were posted to the FIH website on 16 February 2016 as an adjustment to the previous Rules, are now formally incorporated
    9. Tidying up of two paragraphs of repeated guidance concerning the completion of Penalty Corners
    10. Addition of ‘once the whistle has been blown to start the Penalty Stroke’ for no movement of the Goalkeeper’s feet at a Penalty Stroke
    11. Adjustment of the guidance for the caution/carding procedure for a Goalkeeper moving early at a Penalty Stroke, bringing it into line with the Indoor Rule
    12. Addition of the new ‘Corner’ signal in the Umpiring Signals section

    If have tried to keep the workings and writings as intact as possible, if you want to have more insights of hockey then check from this app bitly.com/app100mph

    Not sure if you all know this, but Spcnet is shutting down permanently in July of this year. Well, I started this thread 19 years ago (although I've been very inactive for the last 17 years) and ironically, I'm likely the one ending it. All of you are more than welcome to join the Spcnet legacy group on FB so we can all still keep in touch. Monkey, Kiss, Trizz, James and many more (if any of you ever see this), please come and join us on FB here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/679441419485194

    Btw, zhaozilong44, someguy44 and Bai Qi44 are all me. I wasn't going to post here again unless the Nucks make it to the finals. That didn't happen this year, but since the site is ending, I might as well post.

    The Oilers just advanced to the 2023-24 Stanley Cup Finals like minutes ago. They will meet the Florida Panthers (their 2nd Cup finals in 2 years). Oilers beat the Dallas Stars in 6 in the conference finals. The Canucks took the Oilers to 7 games before losing to them in the 2nd round. If the Nucks had a healthy Boeser for game 7 against the Oilers (or even an uninjured Demko), it might likely be the Canucks taking out the Dallas Stars in the conference finals and heading to the Stanley Cup finals now. But, there are no "ifs" in life. We (Canucks) had a great season still and losing to the Stanley Cup Finalists (maybe even Stanley Cup winners) in 7 games is no shame.

    Btw, I've saved all the pages of this thread on pdf files to backup some old memories from here. Some of us likely have our own families now (I've been married and divorced and now am a single parent of an 11 year old girl). Some of us just moved on with life and some of us might've likely passed away (rip).

    Anyways, see you all on FB... hopefully. If not, best wishes on all your lives!

    The Canucks gave the Oilers everything they had. They played a physical style that wore Edmonton down. Mcdavid was pointless in 3 of the 7 games. The Canucks just lacked a little bit of scoring touch, but defensively, they played well. Dallas seemed to be out of gas after going through the gauntlet of Vegas and Colorado. Also Dallas doesn't play that physical and Edmonton was able to take advantage. Anyways go Panthers! Lets hope Luongo gets that ring he deserves.

    Yeah, Miller and company did a great job of shutting down McJesus. Unfortunately, when you shut him down, there's another guy who's likely the best playoff performer in recent memory, on the Oilers who takes over. Nucks just couldn't shut down Draisaitl and he killed us. I agree that we were missing a scorer, but that scorer was already on the team. It's just that he was playing with a bum knee and not like himself at all. If only Pettersson was playing like he could, then we might've taken out the Oilers in 6. If we had Demko on top, then oh wow...

    But, the biggest missing piece was Boeser for game 7. He was the only true finisher on the Nucks. Even if we did get past Edmonton though, there was no chance we would've gotten past Dallas with Boeser's blood clot and the rest of the team playing like they were. We were closed this year, but 2 key injuries and players playing with injuries (not only EP was playing injured, but Hughes and Hronek were likely both playing injured too) was just too much to overcome. At least the core can learn from this. Still, gotta give a lot of credit to the Oilers. Their PP and PK are just way too impressive. Nucks are the only team to score any PP goals on them in the playoffs.

    Anyways, I'm 100% cheering for the Panthers to win it all due to...financial reasons.

    And congratulations to the Florida Panthers on winning their first Stanley Cup ever! The Oilers gave a very valiant effort in coming back from 3-0 deficit to force a game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals. McDavid was also incredible throughout the playoffs so he deserved his Conn Smythe trophy. But understandably, he didn't even bother to come and accept it as the Stanley Cup is the only trophy that matters.

    Btw, I really wanted the Panthers to win the cup this year cause I have a $100 free bonus bet on them winning it all at 15-1 payout. :-p I made the bet right after the Panthers lost in the 2023 Cup finals to the Knights so guess it paid off. Was hoping the Nucks would win it and they might've had Demko not gotten injured (and later Boeser and with EP also playing injured) as Edmonton almost lost to Vancouver in 7.

    Also, this might or might not be the last post in this thread forever (see if Almo89 will reply) so if I don't hear from anyone, have a great rest of your life! Hope to see you all on the FB Spcnet group. Take care all!
