    But yes, those are the ones. I think the Devils may play occasionally.

        Bigger sieve:

        Carey Price
        Chris Osgood (last 2 seasons only)
        Christobal Huet
        Brian Boucher

        Honestly a tough question.

        Price is among the most overrated goaltenders in the last 10 years.

        Huet is a neverwas that managed to get paid like a star goaltender before exposing himself as a fraud.

        Osgood was good at many points throughout his career but has, in the past two seasons, allowed a rookie and a career backup to look like Brodeur and Roy compared to him.

        Boucher was, to me, always a backup goaltender that was, at times, forced into the #1 role and hasn't really been able to sustain anything reasonably worth being "ok" about.

        I think it is a hard choice. I guess I'd go with Osgood simply because he has the distinction of being at one time, a great goaltender. The fact that he's fallen off so incredibly hardcore... wow.

            He's not even good enough to be on this list.

              I think the Hawks only got added this year when NBC realized no one wanted to watch the Bruins when they're so bad.
              That's it. I got into a discussion over on HF about it.

              The Rangers appear once, Detroit 5 times, Philly and Boston twice, Pittsburgh 4 times and Washington/Chicago 3, I believe. NBC managed 17 different teams in 17 weeks of NFL football, but that's probably because Fox and CBS would burn their headquarters down if they monopolized the Colts, Pats, Favrkings and Cowboys.

                  You've seen what the ratings look like when they get the GOOD teams with a big following on the air, imagine if you crammed in a Thrashers-Devils game on NBC?

                  By the way, Detroit v. Chicago couldn't be picked out for next Sunday because the Red Wings used up all their NBC appearances, instead we'll get Boston-Washington.

                    Brian Boucher
                    From that list, it's a tie between Huet and Osbad, since Oz managed to turn it around in the playoffs last year (even if the results were not indicative of his play). Though to be fair to him, he hasn't gotten a lot of chances to improve upon his 08-09 regular season effort, due entirely to Howard's play since November.

                    But hey, even if Detroit's a first round exit, "The Streak" officially stays alive. Thanks Calgary!

                      Yeah. They get static regardless, and ignore half the country while they're doing it. I imagine it's pretty easy to justify showing 6 east time zone teams when any hockey fans in half the country are getting out of church or bed when the puck drops and not watching hockey.

                      The ratings next week are going to be *** anyway, since Tiger will likely still be in the Masters, so they may as well show decent hockey instead of Alexander Ovechkin vs. the amazing craphole Bruins. The Devils (yeah, yeah, I know boring hockey. Have you met Claude Julien?) are playing Ryan Miller (the other hockey guy Americans have heard of despite his nuts not being juggled by Pierre McGuire)'s "playoff" bound Buffalo Sabres that Sunday.

                      But yeah, show me more Bruins hockey. Jesus. I hope the game's in Boston, so the arena is empty because the Red Sox are playing.

                        The game is in Washington, unfortunately. The ignorance of the west coast teams is a universal thing as Versus does it too. It sucks. And yes, the Bruins are heinously boring to watch and the ad wizards all seem to think that people in Boston give a crap about the Bruins. I blame the other teams in Boston for giving the idea that anything Boston sells to these execs.

                          Shocking story about hockey predator Graham James.

                          Graham James, the junior coach convicted of sexually abusing his players in a case that rocked the hockey world from house leagues to the NHL, has been pardoned by the National Parole Board, The Canadian Press has learned.

                          Though the pardon was granted three years ago, it comes to public light only now as a result of a previously unknown accuser contacting Winnipeg police.

                          A shocked Prime Minister's Office, notified of the pardon by The Canadian Press, called it a "deeply troubling and gravely disturbing" development that demands an explanation from the parole board.

                            Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                              Typical. Smoke a little weed from time to time and you're a dangerous drug addict who should be kept off the street and out of the workforce, but take advantage of a kid and you're just a disturbed/mentally ill person in need of counseling and sympathy.

                                And I thought I heard somewhere that if you are a non-Canadian citizen, and have a DWI, you have a 10-year "ban" from Canada. But molesters, murderers, etc, they're ok. They can visit anytime.

                                I'll see if I can find the law.

                                Edit: http://www.1800duilaws.com/article/travel_to_canada.asp

                                To begin, in Canada a DUI is a felony and therefore an excludable offense under the Immigration Act. A DUI is an indictable offense in Canada that may be punished by imprisonment for up to a 5 year term.¹

                                So I guess it's any conviction. Thought they were especially harsh on DWI's.
