Here Holland is complaining about not being able to sign the guys he wants and having his hands tied due to the cap but yet is still considering throwing money away on Maltby. Christ man, put money where its NEEDED.
So.. Instead of improving their back up goalie situation and getting someone that can play a few games each year instead of making your starting all-star caliber goalie start 70 games.. you just replace the all star goalie? That seems like twisted logic.. but hey, maybe they know something we dont.. Greiss for Vezina 2011!?
Don't you guys think its a little biased to put the wings against the hawks on the hawks banner raising game. You know what they'll be chanting when that thing goes up into the rafters. I just hope the wings feed off of that and beat the living s*** out of those little brats. GOOOOO WINGS!!!
the wings play the hawks 8 times/year. that's 10.25% chance that the wings are going to be playing the hawks on the banner game. and if they play the hawks early in the year, there's an even better chance. i like it personally...just like carman said, it'll add fuel to their fire. listen to the interviews with wings players. it stings them when they don't win it cause they have a legitimate shot every year. lids don't like it when someone else has his cup!
If anybody shows up with one of those at a hockey game, they deserve to have it broken in two over their head. Hopefully everybody will have forgotten about all this nonsense by October.
Ducks fans are pretty annoying...nothing too ridiculous, though. Just some guy next to me with a voice like a foghorn yelling, "HEY HOWARD, YOOOOOOU SUCK!" right into my ear. Insult Howard all you want - I mean, I don't like it, but it is a Ducks game, but Jesus, I think Howard could've heard you if he was down the road at Angel Stadium.
Please no. While to idea of suspending a player for the length of the injury sustained is a good one, it wouldn't work well in practice. There are too many other factors like did his head also hit the ice, is the injury only to the head area, did the player expose his head at the last moment, etc. Also, many injuries from hits are a result of the person getting hit not being in the correct position to be hit. Therefore, injuries are often a result of both parties, whether or not the hit was dirty.
1) How many fans had "Arnott" jerseys made during his first stint in New Jersey and hung onto them?
2) How many of those fans are trying to figure out how to get rid of the smell of moth balls from them?
I don't know why owners buy teams if they aren't willing to spend money on them. Do they expect fans to buy tickets when they trade away good players from their playoff team and leave tons of cap space unused? Would be really tough to be a fan on a team that isn't even trying to win.
