June 12, 2014 - Central Hockey League (CHL) Missouri Mavericks
Independence, Missouri -- The Missouri Mavericks introduced Richard Matvichuk as the new head coach at a press conference on Thursday morning at Independence Events Center.

"When Brent Thiessen offered me the position, I couldn't get back to the phone quick enough," said Matvichuk, "Mavericks fans deserve a championship, and it's now my job to bring them one. We're going to win, and we're going to have a good time doing it.

No *poo poo*. There was an entire season where Hagman was the only reason to watch.

The only thing I remember about Kapanen was that hat trick he scored against us after he went to Phoenix.

What's the Magic Wand doing these days?

Of course I wasn't referring to Hagman. What kind of person do you think I am?

But good know know that there's still one thing left that I can do to troll you guys.

I see that EA has realistically captured Fistric's normal style of playing defense.

Total troll job from EA. A Canuck winning a fight? EA will probably put CHICAGO CUBS: 2016 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS on their next MLB game.

We didn't see the before. He probably snuck up behind and hit him over the head with his stick.

That wouldn't have fazed Fistric. His head has the density of a thousand suns.

The Canucks player probably didn't even do anything. I'm guessing Fistric tried to throw a hit and just missed an fell down.

The fights were kinda dogshit in 2013, the fighting was a bit more realistic in 2014 and 2015, so yeah.

I still play 09 because it's the last one they made for computers. *f-bomb* shelling out hundreds of dollars for a new gaming system. I only play NHL anyway anymore. I never play any other games.

That's what I mean. Say you choose the Stars. Who is your enforcer? Vern Fiddler?

The most impressive things is that they believe Fistric could actually make it to playing in a game.

Just because he didn't work out here, doesn't mean Jagr isn't the best:

Jagr is just the best. He gives zero fucks. I love it. I don't care if he only played 20 games here, I'm glad he was here for a while.

He may have been a shitty head coach, but damn, that's one hell of a rookie card:

This is a great read. James Neal writes about what it takes to be an elite sniper. Some great ex-Stars anecdotes in here:

I've read a lot of the hockey things they've posted on that site. Can't say I've seen a bad one yet.

I would rather read an article like that from someone who is actually an elite sniper.

Article summary: "If you want to be a truly elite sniper in the NHL, get your self put on a line with Malkin and leech off him as much as possible."
