Debating people on yahoo as to why most write ups about the Selke are so heavily slanted toward face-off percentage.
Look, I get how key winning a faceoff in the defensive zone is, but I don’t think winning a high volume of faceoffs necessarily makes you an excellent defensive player.
You could be aces in the circle and completely worthless one-on-one once the skating actually starts.
If anything a faceoff is equal parts offense & defense, based on whether you win or lose it.
“Puck possesion is the best defense” is a cop out; defense by definition is what you do when the other team has the puck.
Since they don’t seem to care that tons of fans are dicked by every game being on NBCSN.
Also let’s destroy the mystique of the Winter Classic by having a gajillion outdoor games next year.

- Me: thanks alot now I'm trolling google images staring at pics of Jared Leto and a hunky swedish hockey player
- Her: if jared leto was still as appealing as he was in requiem and swedes were as hunky as russians i'd be doing the same thing
- Me: This is exactly what a conversation between a male Red Wings fan and female Capitals fan looks like
- (apoligies to Pavel, you goofy looking mo'fo')
- Ladies, I pose you this question: Swedes or Russians?
PS when you read the word Jagr you pictured his mullet
