The Last Time The Canucks Played For The Cup...

Trevor Linden not only touched the Clarence Campbell Bowl, he broke it. That couldn't be good.
The year was 1994. Pat Quinn was the coach and the team had an average regular season going 41-40-3 during the then 84-game-regular season. Their 85 points placed them 2nd in the Pacific Division and 7th in the Western Conference. The Canucks 23-year-old captain, Trevor Linden, and 22-year-old sniper, Pavel Bure, were studs during the regular season. Pavel Bure led the league in goals with 60 and racked up 107 points, while Linden potted 32 goals and 61 points. Veteran player Geoff Courtnall scored 26 goals and had 70 points, while Cliff Ronning had 68 points. Gino Odjick also had great fantasy hockey numbers - 16 goals for 29 points and 271 PIMSs - I would have been using my last pick on him for sure.

Flashback Friday: Atlanta Thrashers Playoff Hockey

With the Stanley Cup Playoffs in full swing, we are going to flashback on some of the greatest playoff moments. The Playoffs are great for creating those special moments where a goal, a pass or dangle become frozen in time and a recurring memory for hockey fans to look back on.
Little did Thrashers fans know that their last-ever playoff game would also happen that week
With the official announcement that the Atlanta Thrashers franchise would be moving to Winnipeg for the 2012-13 season, it's time to look back at the history of the Thrashers in the playoffs. It's a short history, but it's worth a flashback.

Flashback Friday: Take It Easy Doug Weight

At the age of 40, Doug Weight retired yesterday from playing hockey and will now work for the New York Islanders as an Assistant Coach and Special Assistant to the General Manager. If having Garth Snow as the GM wasn't a joke already to the struggling organization, now they also have a GM assistant with zero management experience. While his duties as Assisant Coach are clear, there are some questions about what his role as Assistant to the General Manager is - maybe Dwight Schrute knows? Our guess is that he will be responsible for giving Garth Snow daily updates on Rick DiPietro's injury status. Regardless of Weight's future, his past career is worth a flashback.

Flashback Friday - No Quiet Room For Kariya

With the Stanley Cup Playoffs in full swing, we are going to flashback on some of the greatest playoff moments. The Playoffs are great for creating those special moments where a goal, a pass or dangle become frozen in time and a recurring memory for hockey fans to look back on
Off The Floor! On The Board!
Back in 2003 there wasn't a quiet room for players to go to after taking a hard hit. Even now, it seems that if it's a big game, players don't go immediately to the quiet room for the mandatory 15 minutes to be evaluated by doctors.

Flashback Friday - The Messier Guarantee

With the Stanley Cup Playoffs in full swing, we are going to flashback on some of the greatest playoff memories. The Playoffs are great for creating those special moments where a goal, a pass or dangle become frozen in time and a recurring memory for hockey fans to look back on
The New York Rangers were down 3- 2 during the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals. Their rivals the New Jersey Devils were just one game away from reaching the Stanley Cup finals when Mark Messier - the captain of the Rangers - told the New York media that he guaranteed a Game 6 victory. The guarantee was a headline in all the papers and became a huge story not just in New York, but all over the hockey world. It was compared to Babe Ruth pointing and calling his homerun or Joe Namath's Superbowl win guarantee.

After watching the Pittsburgh Penguins get knocked out in game 7 against the Tampa Bay Lightning the Twitterverse was on fire with Penguins fans sobbing over the loss and pointing out that if the team had Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in the line up, the score would have been different.

Yesterday, Houses of the Hockey ran a nice little post titled History Will Be Made Pretty Much Every Day - and they're right. Thanks to the NHL calling game winning goals in Game Three "history will be made" worthy, these commercials are losing their effect. This is a sad development, because the ones from last year were so good they could leave you with goosebumps. The success from last year, and the hundreds of parodies created by fans was special, and left you wanting more. Unfortunately, we're left with too much now, but there still has been some great commercials from this year.

We're going to start our playoff flashbacks with a dirty dangle. It occurred during the 1991 playoffs when Mario Lemieux scored one of the most famous goals in NHL history.

Bad Trade Review: Alexei Zhitnik for Braydon Coburn
Atlanta thought they got Zhitnik, instead they got Shitnik
During the 2006-07 Season the Atlanta Thrashers won their division and were the third seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs that year. At the trade deadline the Thrashers decided to add a veteran player in order to help them in the playoffs.

With Peter Forsberg officially hanging up his skates after a brief 35 minute comeback this season, we remember Foppa for the great player he was. His powerful presence in the corners, his playmaking ability, and his willingness to play the game he loves. We're sure you will have a good retirement Peter.

Phil Kessel on a luggage cart makes for awkwardness
Phil Kessel made headlines earlier this week for his comments made on the disconnect he and coach Ron Wilson have. When the shy, introverted Kessel said "maybe it's just not working out here" - alarm bells went off. Had Kessel not been so awkward, he might have avoided the criticism that came with his comments when people thought he wanted out of Toronto. Taken out of context, it looks bad. What he meant was the line he was on was not working out - it just didn't come out that way.

Flashback Friday: Wayne Gretzky's Ninety Nine All-Stars Tour During the 94-95 Lockout

Every Friday we will be adding one of our favorite hockey videos from over the years. Some might be painful, some might be just plain dirty, but they all have a story behind them that make them downright awesome and great to watch over and over again.
Who remembers the Ninety Nine All Stars Tour? During the 1994-95 lockout, Wayne Gretzky assembled a team of some of his friends to tour around and play other professional club teams and local All-Star teams. The purpose of the tour was to stay in shape during the lockout, raise money for charities, as well as promote hockey around the world. We're sure it was a bit of a European vacation for some players as well...

12 guys had double digit penalty minutes this game. Wow.

These are the player stats from March 5, 2004 in a game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators. In case you missed it, there were a great deal of penalties that game. So many penalties, that it set a NHL record for most penalty minutes in a game with 419 PIMs total. A week before this game, Martin Havlat of the Senators was suspended 2 games for a high stick on a then 36 year old Mark Recchi, and his first game back from suspension was against the Flyers. Recchi said this about Havlat:
"It might not come from our team. But he better protect himself."

Flashback Friday: World Junior Recap

Ok, so Canada lost and we all were pissed and upset when it happened. Now, I gotta say I feel fine. It was a tournament that is so over hyped in Canada and played by 18 and 19 yr old kids. It's not that big around the rest of the world and most countries only show interest in it when then win.

At work today I heard some kids talking about how Canada sucks now...
It made me think a little

Canada has made it to the final the last 10 years. Yes, the last 10 years, Canada has had the chance to win gold. They've won 5 consecutive gold medals in those 10 years. Is this tournament too easy?

Dirty Dangle Flashback 2010

It's been a fun year for Dirty Dangle. Since launching our site in late October, we've had some fun times with the site. We've become a dotcom, interacted with people in hockey who we otherwise wouldn't have had the chance to, and we've made some people laugh. On the eve of a new year, we want to share with our favourite moments in hockey, as well as with the site.

The Punch Up in Piestany

You'd be hard pressed to find someone who talks hockey and doesn't know about this infamous brawl during the 1987 World Junior Hockey Championship. It was a massive bench-clearing brawl in which the officials actually turned the lights off in the arena to try and stop it.
