PUCK YOU!

Pacioretty vs Marek vs Wyshynski

After a mere three weeks in the Swiss League playing for Ambri Piotta, Max Pacioretty is headed home with a flu and an inflamed elbow. With the lockout still pending a decision, it’s hard to keep sane as a hockey fan in North America. Thank goodness for Jeff Marek and Greg “Puck Daddy” Wyshynski keeping their Marek VS Wyshynski podcast going and entertaining it’s fans with satire and hockey news. You can check that show out here. In honor of the entertainment it’s given me, it inspired me to make a meme based on a reoccurring gag on that show.

Hello hockey fans! PUCK YOU! has returned for another installment, and this time we address the deals made on trade deadline day. This is the last stretch of the regular season and these moves could possibly make or break a team’s aim at making the post season.

Hello hockey fans! We started this project last season on a different website. We have a new home here at Wonderpod-Online, and couldn’t be happier to getting back to discussing a game we all mutually love… hockey. The one played on ice, that is. The NHL season is just over the halfway mark, the World Juniors is over, and we’re on the doorstep of the free-agency deadline. It’s about time we got the crew back together for another bull-session. So, let’s get to it, shall we?

The All “MAN” Team: “What If?… Hockey.”

Just as the 2011-2012 NHL season had wrapped, Armchair MVP, G (and with some help from ThatDamnDoubleC) discussed the idea of assembling fantasy hockey teams. Now, these would not be “best players of all time,” types of fantasy booking. No, these would be based on a gimmick or combination of themes with a sense of comedy possibly mixed in for good fun.

It was well aware to us of the looming lock out of the 2012-2013 NHL season at the time this article was created during the summer. And since it came to fruition, the idea is a little more bizarre than originally intended.

Ultimate Hockey Fighter – The Introduction

Come one, come all. This is the introduction to Ultimate Hockey Fighter. A 32-man single elimination tournament from players past and present, throughout the entire history of the National Hockey League, come together to compete for the title of Ultimate Hockey Fighter.

Every week, fans and viewers alike, will vote on who progresses, until there is only one man standing. They will then be crowned the Ultimate Hockey Fighter, and walk away with a grand prize of zero dollars and zero cents. Also, probably with a few teeth missing and a nose that points to the right.

Not just any man can participate in this tournament. There are a series of qualifications that are needed in order to qualify for a spot in the draw. These qualifications are as follows:

1) Each participant must have at least 100 NHL fights throughout their careers.
2) They must average at least 15 Fights Per Year (FPY) throughout their careers. FPY is calculated by adding the total number of NHL fights, divided by the number of seasons they played in.
3) Each fighter must have at least one NHL season with at least 20 Fights.
4) Fights recorded during NHL Pre-Season, the NHL Regular Season, and the NHL Post-Season are included in the final fight totals.
5) Fights in the AHL and other leagues besides the NHL are not included.
6) Wildcards were decided by those who had over 200 NHL Fights in their careers, but did not meet the 15 FPY criteria. Each wildcard entrant was then eliminated based on their FPY totals, with the lowest totals being eliminated until the wildcard spots were filled. Wildcards were only entered if there are not enough participants that meet all criteria.

The following is a list of websites and other tools required in finding the 32 participants:
www.hockeyfights.com for stats and details on the participants.
www.youtube.com for footage. All rights reserved to the NHL yada yada yada Don’t take me down for copyright infringement.
www.wikipedia.org for details on the participants.
A calculator (in yellow) for assistance with stats.

Finally, a disclaimer. If your favourite fighter didn’t make the final list of 32, or if you listened to thinksojoe’s interview with Buffalo Sabres TV host, play-by-play announcer, and host of “Hockey Hotline” on WGR AM in Buffalo (PLUG: Link to said interview) and the person you chose as the Ultimate Hockey Fighter did not make the cut, then I apologize. I apologize also if I missed someone who has the numbers and fits the qualifications, but did not make the tournament. The final 32 is complete, and is all ready to go. Speaking of which.. the revealing of the participants, and the draw.. is coming very, very soon.

PUCK YOU! Season 2, episode 1 (repost).

While the 2012 NHL Lockout is underway, every Friday will be known as “Flashback Friday.” On this day of the week, a classic installment of PUCK YOU! will be released for your enjoyment.

Welcome to Project Wonderboy/Wonderpod Online’s 2010 -2011 NHL season discussion. We got this out a little later than initially planned as the regular season is just underway. However, it is still extremely early into the schedule… anything can happen. This is every team’s chance to succeed or miserably fail. As per usual, this is a panel for the fans (not the stat crunchers, journalists, or over analytical editorialists). It’s for the fans, by the fans. We’re biased around these parts. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Note: This is a repost that originally appeared at Project Wonderboy in October 2010. We will be releasing brand new episodes of PUCK YOU! throughout the season here at Wonderpodonline.com. As a result, it makes sense to reintroduce the first installment of the 2010-2011 NHL season for your perusal.
