Fantasy Hockey For Dummies

After a mediocre first year*, I've signed up for my second go-around in the MeFi Fantasy Hockey League! Last year I was hindered by my near-total ignorance of hockey (It took me a looong time to grok +/-) and my total ignorance of pool mechanics in general ("So, who wins the week is the one who gets the most points in those categories, not whose players actually won the most games. Ooooh.") Please share your management tips, tricks, and strategies so we can make this the Super Absorbent Pads' winningest year! *I think we still did better than Buffalo. [more inside]

Help me learn to play my (video game) hockey position

I'm hoping someone can direct me to an online (preferably free) resource that teach position-based hockey fundamentals. Where to be, when to crash or set up behind the net, how to adjust when your teammates go here or there, how to keep the puck moving and create a solid offense. Basically, fundamental positioning and how to run an offense. [more inside]

Seeking Team Canada / Finland / USA hockey shirts for tiny tot

I have a two year old niece. Her mom is American, her pop is Finnish, and her auntie biscotti is Canadian. I wanted to send her tiny little versions of the TEAM SUOMI and Team Canada and maybe Team USA hockey jerseys because (a) OMG the cute and (b) so her parents can dress her appropriately for Sochi. I can't find them, except for old versions of the US one. But I refuse to believe that Canadians and Finns do not want to dress their tiny tots in hockey paraphernalia, so I have to think these are out there somewhere. Can someone help me? My Finnish is limited to race drivers and the word "lansigootansmanpystykorva" so I can't really search on Finnish sites.

Headed to overtime again?

After Game 1's epic triple overtime and Game 2 went to overtime as well, I went out on a limb and predicted that this Chicago-Boston series will break the record for longest Stanley Cup series in history, in terms of total minutes played. Only problem is, I can't find what the current record is! [more inside]

Motivation 10, Experience 0

I've never ice skated in my life. In a week, I'm starting lessons, in the eventual hope of learning how to play hockey and joining a club league down the line. I am 39, 6'3" and around 250 pounds. My exercise regimen is walking/running 4-5 times a week, 3-5 miles at a time. I have questions, as a total novice to on-ice sports of any kind:
  1. What is going to frustrate me the most?
  2. What is going to hurt the most (and how do I treat it?)
  3. What's the most important thing to remember, so I don't get frustrated?

Hockey stick similar to TPS Tricore 3?

I'm looking to purchase a new hockey stick. My favorite shaft is the Louisville TPS Tricore 3 but they've been discontinued for a while. Do you know of a stick similar to the Tricore? I want a composite shaft and I particularly enjoy the wood outer shell on the Tricore composite. There are pictures of the Tricore on this site: http://hockey.inlinewarehouse.com/showthread.php?t=10557 As for me, I play forward, 5'7", 150lbs. I take the occasional slap shot but I'm more of a stick handling, dangling, deking, wrist shot type of player. I realize stick choice is a personal preference but I'm really hoping there's something similar to the Tricore out there somewhere.

Puck Puzzlements

Hockey questions: How do statisticians keep track of every single player's time on ice, as well as plus/minus, shots, takeaways, giveaways, secondary assists, etc? This question could also apply to other sports, eg basketball ("Wait, who got the assist on that shot?") And how do coaches keep track of players' cumulative time on ice during the course of a game, and prevent tiring them near the end of it? [more inside]

we don't need no stinkin' instant replay

Earlier this summer a couple of sportscasters were talking about a baseball player whose career stats were revised (I think?) years after the fact because a diligent sports nerd went back to the box score, reconstructed the game, and saw that something should have been classified as something else...an error was assigned to the wrong player, or something like that. Who was it? And are there other examples?

How many cameramen at an NHL game?

I love to watch hockey at home, and I've always wondered - how many videocameras do they have running at your average NHL hockey game? How many are manned? Are some automatic? Do they have one guy just manning the net camera? Would they need 2 - one for each goalie? It seems they have a lot of cameramen - some to follow the play, others to follow any fights. I would love some answers from someone who is in a position to know. Thanks!
