    The Official MERB 2011-2012 NHL Hockey Thread

    Here's the standard Mod8 disclaimer...

    The rules in this thread will be as follows: NO flame posts, NO trash talk, NO insults of any kind directed at either members or teams or hockey players. Proper team names must be used in all posts, there will be no "Scabs", "Maple Laughs" or other such terms used in this thread. This thread is for serious discussion only.

    Any violation of the above rules will result in an immediate 1 week suspension. This will include any posts breaking the above rules that the poster has edited to remove the offense.

    This thread will be opened for posting on the day before the first game of the season. There will also be an Official pre-season thread (subject to the same rules above) created, as well as a free for all thread which will be open for more "spirited" discussions. While that thread will be moderated for extreme personal attacks and insults, I would advise any member who is thin skinned to avoid that particular thread.

    Thank you,

    Mod 8

    Started this thread to talk about the upcoming season and the return of the Winnipeg JETS via Atlanta.

    It's a done deal according to TSN.ca and will see the Thrashers move to Winnipeg in time for the start of the 2011-12 NHL season.

    Bad news for the Leafs. Now there will be six Canadian teams ahead of them next year instead of just five.

    Now that Winnipeg has an NHL team, hockey fans in Toronto will want one too ...

    Yes, I feel sorry for leaf fans: they've been without an NHL calibre team for close to half a century. That certainly seems unfair.

    No S**T, is today the end of the world? I 100% agree with Merlot I like, i dont, im like, i have no idea what to say.......

    Hey, all i said was congrats to the Jets for getting a team back, the two SD's are trying to turn it into what they love the most, a free for all thread only... which btw we have that already. I also thought it was a little early for a 2012 NHL thread, thats why i created a offseason thread, which would suffice til October. Oh well, i guess we have alot of places to pick and choose where to talk about HOCKEY.

    I thought I was supposed to be the "fair weather fan" around here...and you guys were the ones who knew everything and loved everything about hockey. Since you've moved on from the NHL season that hasn't ended it's gotten pretty obvious you so-called Habs and Leafs fans care little about the "beauty of the sport", but instead really only love beating each other over the head, so you start an Official NHL thread 5 months early.

    Maybe the Leafs and Habs could face each other on the greens all summer so you guys can keep the real sport you love...b*tching at each other.

    Unbelievable,

    Merlot

    Coming from the guy who (rightly so) spent the last week pointing out Burke's incompetence and failures I find your post ironic but I guess since Doc's banning you felt the need to take over his strict "do as I say, not what I do policy."

    Actually, i remember one of the mods last year, when he reopened one of the hockey threads that was closed a week for bad behavior, specifically said that if g1gballsyday was gonna post in any threads on Merb that were not the free for all threads, then he would need to get a new avatar, i was included in that because at the time i had a rude Yanks lil dude peeing on a red sox logo. I complied with the Mods request, and here we are months later and g1gballsyday still has the rude avatar and has posted in non free for all threads here on merb, including this one. What gives?

    However, having the choice of any avatar you wish and choosing one so rude may be humorous, but it sure isn't about "talking hockey". So you are much more of an example of your own intended criticism than I, given much of your record of posting on hockey. Merlot

    You know what Merlot you're right I didn't read the first post stating this was to be a no fun, humorless thread. I will have no problem staying out of it after this post just as I've had no problems staying out of others like it. In fact it's my opinion that there should only be four hockey threads anyway. One for the regular season, the playoff, the off-season, each regardless of the year, and of course the one that has been described by many as MERB's greatest thread, the Maple Leafs DEATH WATCH thread to cover their annual and inevitable failure.

    Regarding my avatar it is simply a joke and I'm glad you see it for what it is because honestly if anyone was truly offended by it they'd have no reason participating on a message board where members routinely describe how well a girl half their age licked their taint while giving them a rusty trombone.

    As for poor Ig I've got only two comments. First you've proved once again that you are without a doubt the undisputed lightweight champion of MERB and second, is there anyway possible way you could you be even more of a whiny little wuss?

    Hmmmmm,

    So g1ballsday gets upset cause he is better than everyone here on Merb and feels he doesnt have to play by the rules, and im whiny? ROFL! Sniffles....Grow up pal. We were both asked last year to change our avatars as both were deemed offensive and insulting to other members, per i believe it was then Mod 8... i complied, you have not, so what, i called you out, WOW, 8 months later and only when Merlot brought it up. I was just stating a FACT that is somewhere in one of the hockey threads from last year, get over it, and again, i'm whiny, lol...

    PS. I am more of a middlewight, and thanks for the champonship title Wheres my prize money? I dont need a belt, just $$$$$$


    Anyways, lets get back to Hockey, can we do that? Even tho this thread is quite a bit premature.

    Guys, I see discussions that are far from compatible with hockey. Please stick to the topic, with due respect to the rules. I already said it once, my fuse in sport threads will be short and it's now shortened twice already...

    Why are certain guys disturbed by the pre-mature nature of the thread?! Thought those boys would've been accustomed to pre-mature by now.

    Anyway, read in slow-mo... might help the e-x-p-l-a-n-a-t-i-o-n sink in ... Atlanta will be moved to Winnipeg (aka the other armpit of Canada... Hamilton being the other) for the start of the 2011-12 season. Yes, u read correctly... the same 2011-12 season content this thread is meant to house.

    BTW, i personally don't think Winnipeg will get access to the Jets name since PHX owns it. Read a great suggestion that the relocated Atlanta team should be called the Winnipeg Phoenix!
