What controversial stuff has Hasek done this year? NONE. All he's done is keep his mouth shut while putting up one good performance after another. Meanwhile, Belfour has been in bar fights and gotten his goaltending party injured. That's high comedy. You can't buy that kind of newspaper fodder. Time to pick up your game Hasek! There's only a few weeks left till playoffs!

LOL. You know, I just made a similar joke about Belfour--that we should have picked him up *vomits*-- in the thread on Hasek.

I always get a kick out of this one:

" FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- No amount of money, it seemed, could keep Dallas Stars goaltender Ed Belfour out of jail.
The goalie first offered Dallas police officers $100,000, then $1 billion, if they would not jail him on charges in connection with a scuffle earlier this month at a fashionable hotel.

Following his arrest, he continued to be uncooperative - placing his cowboy boots on the squad car's radio console despite police orders to sit up and place his feet on the floor, according to the affidavit. It stated Belfour then vomited across his chest."


Stanley Cup fever, I guess.

And here I was ready to come in here and tell Hank what an idiot he is, but hey, I have to agree.

Dominik wants to play hockey more than anything else, and he's set out to prove it. He's been a model citizen this season, on and off the ice, so no one can find anything to criticize. I can't imagine what anyone could find to gripe about where Dom is concerned this season. What amazes me is folks who still harp on his potential for injury. With the prep and dedication Dom has put in this season to be at his best and to guard against injury, I'd say the odds of his going down injured are no worse or different than any other player on the team.

Living here in Stars Land and knowing how Eddie behaved in Dallas, I wasn't surprised when they cut ties with him. The Turtle Creek Billion $$ Bribe debacle was amongst the last straws, I guess. With Turco chomping at the bit to be #1, it turned out to not be such a bad decision for the Stars.

Just a point of clarification: The 1999 Stanley Cup was awarded to the Stars by the NHL and Gary Bettman, not won legitimately. No Goal! tongue.gif

And no, I'll never get over it. wink.gif

LOL, yeah that was great.

My favourite Belfour moment was when he was playing for Team Canada in the 2002 Olympics. After Canada won the Cup all the players went on the ice to celebrate and get medals. Belfour was the 3rd man out so he came out sans equipment and only his jersey. Well it sure looked to me that he had a pair of jogging pants on, a 5 day old beared/stubble and his eyes looked very glazed over. I think everyone knows that he was boozing during that last game.

Another one of my favourite Belfour stories is when he was 15 and playing Junior Tier II he and his coach were driving together for a road game in the States. When they get to customs they answer all the proper questions and are quickly ushered into the US. But as soon as they started driving away, Belfour, with his window down, yells out "Haha, Those idiots didn't find our drugs!". He did it as a total joke (they didn't have any drugs on them) but they were quickly stopped by customs agents and had their entire car dismantled down to the last nut and bolt.
They didn't make their game.

I can't believe I hadn't heard the story about Belfour and the jr team "drug" incident. tongue.gif

I seem to remember more than once in Dallas when Eddie was a mess and tried to play anyway, and the Stars PR would say he had the sniffles and hit the "NyQuil" too hard before the game. Um. Yeah, right! biggrin.gif

No, we just need to weed out idiots that can't detect when people are being facetious.

I dont think people even take the time to read a thread, just read the topic and scroll down to add reply.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

haha, loo... I don't think that guy reads the whole posts. He went in on NFM and Wildwings yesterday and was like, "I can't believe you think your autograph is worth anything! Man!"

Or at least... that is what I would hope. Otherwise all his friends will never crack one around him and then he'll never have any.


No, it's definitely excitement.

The answer: Yes and yes.

Eddie knows all the bars in downtown Chitown, and therefore would be a valuable asset in any true St. Patty's day trolly ride then barhop. Someone would need to be assigned to keep him in check for the majority of the night, but if worse comes to worse, he can be knocked out and left in the corner of Smitty's with a few ounces, all to inspire another story in the news just like this. wink.gif

Having Eddie know all the good bars is a great point, and the potential for laughs is definitely there too, I would just have to worry about owing the local police force a BILLION DOLLARS at the end of the night! laugh.gif
