#2028448 Paul McCartney adds penguins sticker to guitar

Posted by One4TheWings on 23 August 2010 - 09:38 AM

You guys have missed the point entirely. He felt pressure from the fans to put the penguin on? Fine. But notice when he's holding his guitar properly, the Winged Wheel is displayed properly and the Penguin has fallen on it's face. I consider it a nice little backhand. Sure the logo is on there, but it's displayed improperly. Maybe it's even a penguin taking a dive... hmmmm. symbolism is big to some, perhaps we needed to look at the deeper meaning.

Some might suggest Laraque wouldn't have taken liberties on Kronwall had detroit had a fighter(s) and sandpaper players in their lineup

I don't wanna start another grit/toughness discussion, already plenty of them, although i can't say i wouldn't like some more sandpaper guys in the lineup, however ken holland had a pretty decent offseason and i'm as excited as i've been in years for the upcoming season, i still believe the current team can do wonders :thumbup:

Well the talk on other boards saying that, i haven't thought much about it...and it's impossible to know if the situation would have been different.

How good do you guys think Kronner could be if he never had the injury bug?

Second coming of Bobby Orr :thumbup:

Seriously though his 08/09 season was a step in the right direction

This is no good. If he needs surgery, they might want to go ahead and get on that, seeing as how the regular season starts in like 6 weeks.

If he gets surgery it's probably a similar one that Lecavalier had yesterday, arthroscopic surgery that is, 4weeks off maxmimum in that case.

Yeah during the summer reports have basically been saying, it's better but not perfect and they still don't know exactly what caused the pain in his knee, the pain was still there when the mcl was 100% healthy..

Zetterberg can cheat a bit as he is the primary centre and if he get tossed out datsyuk is there to win it, it's awesome to have two players of that calibre to take the faceoffs

He'll have to get used to playing wing. That is, if Helm is the 4th line center and Modano/Filppula is the 3rd line center. Doesn't sound like it should be too hard but I think Abby has played center his whole life.

Wings' centers to start the season: (may change during the course of the season of course)

Zetterberg
Filppula
Modano
Helm/Abdelkader (toss up)

Thank god...they delayed it for too long

So now they have 24 players signed and atleast 1 has to be moved?


#2028275 Small rule change confirmed

Posted by mjlegend on 22 August 2010 - 02:48 PM

Replace the shootout with a punch-out. :thumbup:


#2028179 Small rule change confirmed

In what sport, besides association football, do ties/draws occur frequently? The majority of sports have some sort of overtime system or an extra game to decide the outcome.

In what sport can guys punch each other in the face until they're too tired to swing anymore, and their only punishment is to sit for five minutes?

I don't care what other sports do really. I love hockey. Shootouts are awful.
