Colorado-Islanders: Okay, Seriously, This HAS to be the Worst Game in VERSUS History

Listen, our goofs on VERSUS tend to be frivolous and a little petty.  But this is one of those cases in which, even we’re 100% sure we’re right, and we’re never totally sure of ourselves.  Could VERSUS or the NHL please have done something about this disaster of a game they’ve got airing tonight from the Nassau Mausoleum between the Islanders and the Avalanche?

We know that the NHL and VERSUS work together in the scheduling process to find solid games for the network to air.  But, who at VERSUS at the start of the season thought the Isles and Avs would be some clash-of-the-titans East-West showdown?  What genius at the NHL felt scheduling only the Isles and Avalanche tonight would somehow make it more special?  Will the announcers talk about anything other than who will be left on either team after the trade deadline?

We plan on doing the announcers/open thread tonight, we hope you’ll join us for what should be a much more savage commenting than usual.

  1. Tonight’s game will be a 2 1/2 hour Bill Guerin Infomercial. You have been warned.

    who knows, this could be a very entertaining game. Two worst teams in their respective conferences – it’s a battle for ping pong balls. Coaches might leave the net empty and play with 6 skaters for the whole game.

    I’m sure there are loyal Islander and Avs fans who will watch, otherwise we would be asking; Is it possible to get no viewers for a hockey game?

    I can think of one reason to watch…..

    OK, I lied… I can’t….
