Default Hockey, unpopular among fellow homebrewers?

Just did a research for hockey threads and saw only a handfull.

Are we a minority in this message board?

Being from Montréal you'll understand I'm an avid Habs fan!

Can't speak for everyone else, but I'm a huge hockey fan. I support the sport itself first and foremost, but I'm a die hard Wing Nut. Go Wings!

Anyone hear of the proposed rule changes in the NHL this coming season?

Not surprised you're from michigan (and a Wings fan), there's a strong hockey fanbase there, maybe the biggest in the USA.

Here's for the R&D camp : http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/Pass-or-Fail-Grading-NHL-8217-s-new-rules-test?urn=nhl-wp10865

Lifelong Pens fan checking in. I know they're talking about a number of changes: removing the trapezoid, adjusting OT, curved end boards (to prevent pacioretty-type injuries) but im not sure whats going to happen. I think they just finished the R&D camp, so im sure there will be more to come.

I also heard they're trying some rules that will increase the power play advantage. One surprising change they tried was not allowing the PK to ice the puck when clearing.

There may be only a handful of threads, but they're special. Hockey rules.

I love hockey, just wish I had the opportunity to:

A: work for Sharks Radio Network again
B: Mix audio for Fox Sports again.
C: have the $$ to attend a game or two.
D: have the ca$h to visit the nearby brewpub that always carries the games.


Go Sharks!!!!!

I am (unfortunately) a Caps season ticket holder. Because of this, I must drink a lot of beer, especially in the post season. I have just started home brewing, so now I can drown my sorrows of another choke with my delicious home brews!

The best thing about going to weekend Caps games is getting to go to RFD ( http://www.lovethebeer.com/beer-list.html click on the weekly draft list) and having some real tasty beers before the puck drop.

2 years ago I went to a trip to California to watch the habs play against the Kings, the Sharks and the Ducks.

I must say that I absolutely LOVED the HP Pavillon. You guys got great fans.
