#2167045 Some possible NEEDED changes in the Offseason

---- [ Mile long O.P. condensed for thread length consideration. ]

Where did you get your definition of "FACT" and why are you spelling it all in capitols? Is this somehow supposed to make your opinions sound more fact like?

Hopefully Abdelkader is never to be seen again in this series.

I don't want to see Abby play again in these playoffs.

Draper or Madonna take his spot next game.

#2159758 How would you coach the opposing team?

Posted by egroen on 27 April 2011 - 11:31 PM

Take blind runs at Datsyuk.
Don't bother to clear the crease, Detroit is inept there.
Rotating goalies twice every period confounds the Wings.
Play your enforcers. All of them.
Don't waste your time chasing rebounds.
Shots from the red line are key.
Slow and steady vs. Detroit.
Taunt Bertuzzi.
Focus top defensive pairings on Helm.
Find a way to get C. Lemieux back.
Murray needs to be on the ice every second with Datsyuk.
Thornton needs his fast food.
Remember, Detroit is old - that means they suck.
Exploit Lidstrom.
Play keep away in the neutral zone.
Work on endurance: Run the bleachers before and after every game.
Neimi just won a Cup: Count on him to steal most games.
Stare down Babcock.
Study hours of tape, and finally figure out just what Holmstrom is saying.
Tony Little motivational tapes coupled with sleep deprivation.
Publicly insult and mock Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman and the Ilitches.
Relax, you beat them in 5 last year.

And finally: Touch the Octopus!

#2148844 So I got kidnapped last weekend.

Posted by Autika on 14 April 2011 - 02:33 AM

This past Saturday I worked an 8 hour shift painting a factory. I got off around 5 pm and my girlfriend picked me up so we could get something to eat. We end up getting done around 7 pm, and she starts driving back to my place. I was quite tired and just wanted to go to bed. Just before we get to my subdivision she veers wildly right.
"Ummmmmm...... home is that way."
"I know."
"ok... where are we going?"
"you'll see."
She continues driving down route 74 towards Moline IL.
"Why are we going to Moline? there's nothing in Moline. Moline sucks."
"You'll see."
by this point we've been driving for about 20 minutes and I'm becoming quite paranoid from my lack of knowledge on my current situation.
"Are we going to be gone over night? I didn't bring my toothbrush, my breath wreaks! Who's going to watch the dog?"
"The dog is taken care of. We can stop and get you a toothbrush."
After another 10 minutes of driving we turn onto 88. I begin to glean the happenings.
"Are we going to Chicago?"
I begin salivating.
"are we going to the United Center?"
"Is this my birthday present?"
"did you bring my jersey?"
I quite abruptly find myself wide awake. I've never been to an NHL hockey game, and every time I've thought about buying tickets to see the Wings in Chicago I have to back out because of work or some other hoop la. Now I'm just a little kid who is worried about his lack of preparation for the slight chance of this actually happening. I look down at my feet which are housed in my old college flip flops.
"... did you bring my sneakers?"
"... we can get you some sneakers."
We spend the night in the burbs and I buy a cheap pair of kicks from Target 10 minutes before they close. We take an 8AM Metra the next morning and walk the 2 miles to the United Center. My first Red Wings game is sublime. Surrounded by Hawks fans more intent on chanting about how the Wings suck than cheering for their team (which needed it). I cheer wildly each time The Wings score, standing alone in my section of the nosebleeds. The only downside of the entire experience was that there wasn't anyone else to chant, "Count our cups" with me.

And that is the story of my first NHL experience. anyone else got a story to share about theirs?

Smallest Current NHL markets:
Metro Buffalo Population: 1,124,309 (2008)
Metro Raliegh-Durham Population: 1,742,816 (2009) / 1,130,490 (2010 census)
Metro Edmonton Population: 1,034,945 (2006)


Metro Winnipeg Population: 694,668 (2006)
Metro Hamilton Population: 692,911 (2006)
Metro Quebec City Population: 715,515 (2006)

Metro Phoenix Population: 4,192,887 (Census 2010)
Metro Atlanta Population: 5,475,213 (2009)

But they're in Canada, so every person counts for ten Americans.

Great choice. Not so sure about Emery though.

Posted by Electrophile on 01 April 2011 - 03:48 PM

Does Nashville score 11 goals, or can we hold the opposition to less than double-digits? I'm hoping for the latter, not the former.

#2129384 Next year could be big for the NHL

Posted by aflac9262 on 11 March 2011 - 11:11 PM

They sorta have this thing called a contract.

Isn't the TV contract set to expire after this season? Or did they re-up with Versus/NBC/Comcast/etc? I would love to see the NHL return to ESPN, which would likely mean a return of NHL 2Night program as well.

Wouldn't mind hearing this again (see attached).

If that team only had an enforcer on it, that never would have happened.

Actually Jokerit is one of the few teams that have an enforcer type every year. Sami Helenius played for them and now they have Semir Ben-Amor.

Anyways, I heard the injury was just a charley horse and he should be okay in a few days.
