#1993951 Ron MacLean saves a man's life

Posted by T.Low on 03 June 2010 - 05:42 PM

Maybe the guy thought no one in the world cared if he was around any more. This story showed that two guys did care. It can change someone's outlook.




I know someone who was going thru a hard time and try to take thier own life...and now 22 yrs later she is the best thing that has ever happened to me, so I married her. She's pregnant with our child right now.

Looking at her now, no one would ever believe she ever tried to kill herself. She doesn't waste a moment, overfilling with life, motivates me, challenges me, and inspires me.

Good job Ron and "other guy".

Why save a person who decided to commit suicide, never understood.. it's their choice.

If Philly wins i dont see how it could go to anyone other than Briere. Even with Pronger i still would rather see Philly win the cup. I wouldn't mind seeing Briere,Gagne,Timmonen and Leino get a ring.
There isnt anyone on the Hawks that im like "Hey i would like to see that guy win a Championship" combined with their obnoxious fans....no thanks ill take Philly.

Agreed. Least Elbows McAsshole has already won a Cup. I'd like to see Kane, Buttfugglien and a few of those other schmucks go their whole careers without one. Especially Kane. He's really the NHL's most popular and possibly only contribution to the sea of queerboy coward softies this world now seems to produce in abundance.

Yeah, can we remove this thread somehow. Please Chicago win? I mean opinions are obviously more than allowed and far be it from me to say otherwise. But these are the things that make me believe the Apocalypse is on its way.

Pronger could win the Smythe, lead in points and s*** solid gold, and he'd never be recognized as being better than Lidstrom, because he's not. Not in any way other than physicality, and that'd may as well be irrelevant with how good Nick is.

If Philly wins, I'd give my vote to Briere, Richards, Pronger in that order. People aren't giving nearly enough credit to Timmonen, Coburn and Carle. They've been playing so well that it's a shame people only focus on Pronger. Without those guys Pronger doesn't mean nearly as much as he does. No defenseman by himself can carry an entire defensive unit. Not Nick, not Orr, nobody. Because even if they play a half hour a night, you need competent warm bodies to play the other 30. Just look at Nick this season-Lebda and E gave up a ton of goals. It's not like Nick fell off or anything. It'd be the same with Philly, because if Pronger played 30 minutes, was lights out, and they lost 5-3 because the other 2 d-pairings s*** the bed, no one would talk or care about Pronger's play.

Briere has been the guy for Philly. It's been more of a team effort than most teams I've seen this year or any year, but he's stepped up and scored when he's been needed. You don't just need talent, or chemistry or scorers-you need guys who play well at those times that either make or break you.

Hudler


under achievers and has beens


Huh?

Since when has Hudler been either of these? To quote to movie Forrest Gump, "Are you stupid or something?"

If anything, Hudler is an overachiever just heading into his prime, the exact opposite of what you listed.



#1993821 Rule/Game changes for next season...

Posted by Original-Six on 03 June 2010 - 02:59 PM

How about 5 mins OT then if its still tied have a goalie fight to determine the winner.


#1993686 Rule/Game changes for next season...

Posted by stevkrause on 03 June 2010 - 09:59 AM

I'm all for it and thinks the SO needs to stay, but as I've said all along, they need to adjust point totals to truly emphasize the team victory and make the SO a last call, not an easy way to sit back and try for the 2nd point:

10 min OT, then SO

Win in Reg or OT - 3pts
Win in SO - 2pts
Loss in SO - 1pt
Loss in Reg or OT - 0pts

Sit back and wait for SO and you automatically sacrifice at least one point - All games worth the same point total. done and done.


#1993661 Sidney Crosby - The most hated player in the NHL

Posted by Carman on 03 June 2010 - 08:41 AM

Hockey has been the Black Sheep of the sporting world in the US. They have looked for ways to get new viewers and this was the answer. A high scoring poster-boy everyone loves to hate that they shove down your throats. Like a David Beckham of hockey. Is it coincidence that scoring has gone through the roof over the last 10 years. No. People don't want to see tight games that end in 2-1 or for that matter 1-1. So they continue to pander to those people who never loved hockey in the first place and continue to change the setting and rules on the existing fans of the game. Shootouts anyone? Ovi-rated and Cindy draw viewers. That is why the 2011 Winter Classic is again with Pittsburgh and not one of the many other teams that are waiting for their frozen chance. Bury your head in the sand if you like, but Crosby is just part of the big corporate machine. Take him out of the equation and Hockey drops right back down in the ratings scale below water polo. It's a shame but it is true.

Read this for fun. Circa 2006.

I'll let you guess who fills the shoes of the "Controversy part".


I fail to see the problem with most of the points you've made. The scoring is not even close to what it was in the mid 80's early 90's.

The game has to evolve rule wise, I really don't have an issue with the game itself besides the hooking penalties and shootouts so I understand where you're coming from. But you have to make sacrifices to insure a future product, a league isn't just going to survive on past models/success. Hockey is growing as a sport, and in order to grow you have to adjust the game. Every sport has had to change, hockey is not going to be any different.

Marketing is about creating and promoting to new fans, not to cater to the fan that has been watching his whole life. And the league needs new fans in order to grow and be successful, it seems to me a necessary "evil". As long as they don't completely change the on-ice product(ban fighting etc.) I'm ok with almost anything they do to get new fans.

I don't get why people hate the new "bandwagon" fans. As a fan you have to start off at some point, and even though they may be annoying there is still a chance as the season's go by that they will learn the nuances and tradition of the game and become great and loyal fans. And to me that's what a "marketing" campaign should do.

One things for sure. We're gonna be seeing Cleary skies for a long time.

Seems you came to this conclusion with relative Eaves.

If we're lucky Hurricane Hudler will shift direction - heading south into Florida...With a change of the barometric pressure we could potentially see a light sprinkling of St.Louis heading our way instead.

One things for sure. We're gonna be seeing Cleary skies for a long time.


#1992961 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 02 June 2010 - 09:11 AM

That's a Horton/Frolov/Plekanec player playing top6mins, pp, 30goals etc etc instead of a 900k adam burish or something, think about it..makes a huge difference in the playoffs having more scoring power, like chicago has atm.

First of all, not its not. The latter two are a $1.95-$2.1 million difference and Horton (for Christ's-sake) is a $3.1 million difference, not $1.2. I love how you try to stretch numbers as if I'm (or anyone else for that matter) not going to call you on it.

Second, Chicago is playing with a roster similar to one that Detroit had in 2008. One where Z and Franzen's contracts were peanuts. That's not gonna be the case next season in Chicago. Try again.
