Of course Canadian teams play in the NHL ... and the yanks have done all they can to turn that league from "sport" to "investment opportunity" ... but that's the yanks. We expect it of them. But what is important about hockey is that there is a lot of effort put into minor hockey. That's why our national team is always competitive .... unlike, say, England in football. And the NHL has a salary cap and a draft system for bringing young players into the league ... it's not the same few teams (the ones with the big bucks) that win every year. And the most valuable franchise in the league is that of the Toronto Maple Leafs, one of the least successful collection of stumble bums ever to lace up skates ... can't quite figure that one out. I don't think that there is any sport left in US "sport" ... folks are more interested in what the overpaid clowns do off the field (or ice, or court) than they do on it. A lot like the Premier League.

Nice one DinG, but I think we all knew that he couldn't keep to his word about that, he has got to have somewhere to vent his spleen

But Canadian teams are Canadian owned, and they field teams dominated by Canadian players. Look at the rosters of the "English" Premier League. What is it .... about 30 per cent English players? The Germans seem to be getting it right ... teams in the Bundesliga are full of talented German players. Ok, Bayern have Robben and Ribbery, but the rest of them are mostly krauts. That's why they have such a strong national team. It's the same in Italy ... probably 60 per cent of the players in Serie A are Italian. The Premier League is not helping English football ... in fact, it is probably hurting it. Let's face it, you are no longer a major power in your national sport. Famous teams are English in name only. And until talented young English players are given a chance to participate at the highest level your national team will remain an embarassing also ran.

Last year Canadian teams sucked in the Stanley Cup (mmm, that has a nice ring to it), and the trophy went to the Chicago Blackhawks. Yet, half the guys, including the captain and the two assistant captains, who suited up for the Hawks were Canadian.

Its nice to see nothing has changed,
BBC Sport - Man Utd: David Moyes criticises Premier League fixture list

Looks like Red noses apprentice has got his excuses in early. 'Hardest start for 20 years...' and "I hope it's not because Manchester United won the league quite comfortably last year [that] the fixtures have been made much more difficult."

Wow if Rodgers said that he would be ridiculed by the plastic army. Cue Barry....

I think it was a stupid comment - but then again, if you don't believe in coincidence you could well think it was a conspiracy

Good result for you DinG, but thought you may have lost it right at the death.

A cracking result for La Crème, but that worries me - we don't normally win the opening game, but we still need a mid-field player. Swansea are going to give a few teams a real game this season.

Same old story for the Deadwood gang - crap, they could probably lose against Stanley. Must be galling to see Burnley in the top two when your team is in the bottom three.

Looks as though it could be a yo-yo season for Stanley, let us hope they can really put it together soon and look forward to playing the Deadwood gang next season

Let's see what the rest of the weekend has in store for us.

Ooh! What you said! I see Donkey Oatey's been on & it must be killing him not being able to have his Tuppence worth of pokes. Come on Jay, you know you want to!

U turns are allowed you know mate, just look how many "Call me Dave" has made, if he can do it, well, little people like us surely can too.

Didn't watch the full match, only MOTD2. Very slick passing and penetration in the first half by Cheski, Hull seemed to be overawed by it all and what a superb goal by Lampard. However, second half was a different story, never looked as though Chelsea would lose but they will have to play better against the NN, La Crème and the Scousers, and a few other teams. Chelski are a brilliant attacking team but I think they are still a bit lacking at the back. Lots to come I think.
