#2605866 Call Out the NHL on BS

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 04 May 2015 - 03:07 AM

I'm just done with the whole, Bettman and his minions are ruining the NHL bit. The times have changed and its impossible for the game to stay the same. Take a look at every sport on the planet, they've all gone through some form of transformation in the last 20 years. I get that its tough for some fans to get used to, but it's better then grumbling about things that won't change. Hell I'm a purist, which makes me disappointed with a number of changes in recent years. I hate the shootout, the trapezoid, and lets not even start on the officiating. But you know what? I've learned to live with it. The game is still awesome, and it's much more enjoyable to watch if you accept the NHL the way it is. You know I'll still complain about this and that, because it's part of being a fan. However realizing that the new NHL is what it is, my frustration will quickly subside. Frankly I'm not even pissed at the Kronwall suspension anymore. It happened, it sucked,but time to move on.

 

Or the DH in baseball. I think it ruins the sport, but I don't see it going away either.

I love this GDT. Amazing work.  :clap:




#2525390 HHOF Class of 2014

I'm so pleased for the Dominator, easily my favorite goalie of all time. Well deserved.




#2471494 Look who's top in GR scoring

Never seen it.

 

And it isn't like calling Howard J-Ho. This, "Dirty Harry," nickname is just obnoxious.




#2367911 Why shootouts may be a bad thing

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 12 March 2013 - 09:23 AM

I have always hated shootouts. s*** I think OT is stupid too. I'm fine with both teams who gave it their all both getting a point for a game well played. But OT is still better than a shoot out as hockey is a team sport, and you still have teams going at it. Not one shooter and one netminder deciding the outcome of the game.




#2362543 Milbury rips Ovechkin

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 28 February 2013 - 12:59 AM

I for one like Milbury, and he is spot on for doing it. It was painful to watch that game, as I was pulling a little for the Caps to beat the Flyers...but just a shameful night for Ovie through and through.




#2334994 Could Petr Mrazek be Another Late Round Steal for the Wings?

Duh.


#2330501 ESPN-KHL Deal in the Works?

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 02 October 2012 - 03:32 PM

Well even if there is a time difference, and the games aren't live I would still watch it. Think of it as watching a season of World Championship hockey. :lol:


#2329074 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 16 September 2012 - 11:33 PM

Did you guys hear? NHL13 is coming out with a new, "Be the commissioner," mode!

Yeah all you do is smash the disk, and no one gets to play.


#2327700 Dion Phaneuf and Elisha Cuthbert engaged

Oh no! I thought I honestly had a chance too...another babe on my list that won't be coming my way. Damn you LIFE!!!


#2281574 2012 Photoshop War: Predators vs. Red Wings

Would help if half those guys weren't retired. :lol: <_<


#2281561 2012 Photoshop War: Predators vs. Red Wings

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 11 April 2012 - 04:44 PM

i really don't think that the red wings suck,but i do hate them,did not mean to offened anybody on here,like i said before i found the picture on photobucket and don't really have any photoshopping skills


I don't think you could offend anyone on here no matter what you do. But if I voted it down it is because the picture is unoriginal, unfunny, and frankly just sucks. If you don't have Photoshop abilities, scour the net a little more for better ones, or just enjoy the slamming we do here. :hehe: It is all in good fun, but that was just pitiful.


#2263074 Bethann Salei: Her heart goes on

That right there is touching.


#2257343 Ken Holland: "Right now, Joey is our #2 goalie"

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 16 February 2012 - 10:00 AM

Thank god someone in the organization finally sees what I have seen all along. Screw Conklin, we should have never brought him back. I have no idea what he is doing at the NHL level. Get that bum away from an otherwise great team.


#2252698 Howard has broken finger, Joey Mac recalled

Posted by Gordie Howe hat trick on 05 February 2012 - 01:00 AM

Maybe after tonight people will wake up to what I have been screaming when we signed him...AGAIN, but Conklin has no right being out there with us.
