I would think the world would love this match happen. I think Putin in more fit than Harper and Harper would have to go into weight training and take off about 50lbs, just to move! Don't know what he's like on skates, anyone know? So, I guess if Harper isn't sen in the House that much in the future, he's probably in the gym or on the ice. http://www.thestar.c...-series-rematch

What if Putin lays out our PM with a cheap shot? Will Obama come to our rescue and drop the gloves???

I doubt Harper's weight problem is an issue... or his skating prowess - he quite regularly exhibits skating skills even when on thin ice!

No , but Brendan Shanahan will. Putin will be called on the carpet in New York and suspended for one game.


For the record, Putin would leave Harper panting by 0.22 of the first period.

I don't know who would win. But the lefties of the forum would certainly be cheering for the former KGB strong man Vladimir Putin. :)

Fresh off the press, word now is Harper says he's not playing. Too bad, they could have made lots of money for their party too! http://www.cbc.ca/ne...ia-rematch.html

Coward... that's as bad as the Canucks starting their backup versus Boston this past weekend.

Coward ?

Um...worked out for them didnt it?

Schneider is from the Boston area and no one had seen him play live. The is a long tradition that the kid 'from the area' gets to play since so many family memebrs and freinds are in the stands.

It aint cowardly.

Yeah, it was one of the best games of the year so far. Too bad it was at such a lousy time. I couldn't believe they got four past Thomas.

I've had all that I wanted of a lot of things I've had and a lot more than I needed of some things that turned out bad.

You've got to be kidding. Putin is about as conservative and right wing as it gets in the only place it really matters these days.

I'd call him a securitarian if such a word existed. It certainly should. He's no different than western right-wing politicians who are obsessed with nationalism and the security of the state and doing everything they can to increase the level, size and scope of both.

I can't stand watching hockey myself. Like any other bunch of morons running back and forth trying to stick something in a hole or an end zone and like statists too, there's only so many variations on the theme before they all get tired.

Just for one hard run in to the boards... or one of those bone shaking open ice hits...then my support is right back to Harper.

I think Putin is about a foot shorter than Harper, and probably 80 pounds lighter. My money is on Stephen if they get into it. :)

Coward? That would be Brad Marchand throwing a check at Sami Salo's knees. I am not old enough to remember a player named Kenny "The Rat" Lindsman, but someone told me that Marchand reminds him of "The Rat". Marchand certainly has the nose to live up to that nickname, and before too long, somebody is going to break Marchand's rat nose and it'll be well-deserved when it happens.

You are seriously deluded if you equate how Putin operates with any Western leaders.
The government should do something.

Any coach that plays a goalie because he is from the area should be fired. The coach is supposed to give the team the best chance of winning, not make his backup goalie happy. But I don't believe that this was the reason. He did it because Luongo got lit up in Boston badly and might be a bit fragile.

If you can't play your best goalie in the most anticipated game of the year against your Stanley Cup rival, then something isn't right. I think Luongo might be over-rated as a goalie...

It worked. I'm glad Schneider played well and they won! And what an entertaining game. Finesse versus thuggery. But boy did the finesse get a black-eye!! One concussion and one broken collar bone. Canucks need some toughness....


Coward? That would be Brad Marchand throwing a check at Sami Salo's knees.


Yes, he is a chicken-$&it player. He got 5 games. He'll get his some day. I do wish the Nucks would have responded in a harsher manner to that play. Marchand should never have left the ice with all his teeth intact after that hit.

Many do not know that Putin has a black-belt in Judo. And while judo may not work well on ice skates, you can bet it means he is in pretty good shape, and physically strong. Harper on the other hand probably holds a black-belt in turkey and gravy...
