Holmstrom is one of those guys that other teams fans hate, but they don't hate him because he runs his mouth or he throws cheap shots. They hate Holmstrom because you can hack and whack all you want, but he's still gonna stand in front of the net. They hate Holmstrom because he's a warrior and nothing phases him.
Ritola, Meech, Miller... one of these or two of these are on the outside looking in, if they're going to add a 6th D, they will probably have to move one or two, both helm and abdelkader will get raises, and there is about 2.6 million left after Modano is signed, and kenny probably want 500k for flexibility on short term injuries
Just imagine Holmstrom is having another goal reviewed off of his butt.
haha nice...don't forget the high sticks either on the point shots
I'd love for you to tell me how wrong I am since that link says almost exactly what I said - the full name of the sport is Association Football, and in the 19th century upper class toffs who prefered Rugby started calling it "soccer".
And who +1'd you? Did they even read the link and compare? :doh:
"...in the early days of the sport among the upper echelons of British society, the proper term for the sport was “Soccer”. Not only that, but the sport being referred to as “Soccer” preceded the first recorded instance of it being called by the singular word “Football” by about 18 years. This happening when it became more popular with the middle and lower class. When that happened, the term “Football” gradually began dominating over “Soccer” and the then official name “Association Football”."
thus proving my original point...
To answer your second question, I am assume somebody +1'd me because they found my post entertaining. They didn't get their panties in a bunch because of something said (partly as a joke) on a message board
