#1999300 TSN: Forsberg Almost Joined the Flyers at the Trade Deadline

Posted by Guest on 14 June 2010 - 02:11 AM

He needs to retire.I'm sick of hearing about the Forsberg bulls*** every summer and every trade deadline.

I'll let him know that he should retire in order to spare some random forum poster some completely arbitrary annoyance.

#1999063 Salary Cap rewards for cup finalists

Posted by HelmerFan on 13 June 2010 - 05:36 PM

The salary cap thing in general bothers me. I would prefer a luxury tax system. If our owner Mike Illitch want's to spend more, let him. Why force teams to play down to a level?

On another note, I like the idea of a franchise tag. Designating one person that does not count against the cap.

As for winning the stanley cup, give the winner a compensatory pick at the end of the draft.

I like this Idea, Said player should also have to wear the C.

#1999234 Did the Hawks get a little lucky?

Yes, the Hawks got lucky that they didn't have to play the Wings in the WCF.

Does Forsberg just like to rotate between the Flyers and Avs every time he returns to the NHL?

He apparently worked very well with the Flyers` medical staff.

Ok, now the Hawks obsession is getting to be a bit much. (8 Hawks related threads on the first page).

The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. The Wings did not. Everything's still going to be okay.

People do tend to talk about current events. Wouldn't it be more ridiculous if there were 8 Crosby related threads on the first page?

#1999001 The Curse of Marian Hossa

Posted by Hossa4Life on 13 June 2010 - 02:11 PM

Cry me a river. This guy's got more excuses than a politician in Washington. Posted Image

Who's not banged up in the SCF? I don't hear other guys complaining about it - they still do their job - bruises, bone chips and all.

I just don't get why Wings fans still defend this guy. We are minus one Cup alot to do with him. Glad he's not on our team - good riddance.

You cry me a river and learn hockey. He isnt making excuses, all players who play their hardest end up injured by the end of playoffs. No one is making excuses injures are legit. So stop searching for reasons to hate hossa even though he owned your ass and the rest of the league by winning the cup.

You guys are right, it's just another excuse. I mean what kind of guy plays more hockey than anyone in the league the last 3 years and then has the nerve to suffer the effects of it. I mean what a pansy. With what he's being paid he has no right to be hurt. He should be smart enough to use that money to buy time off or something so he's not getting hurt all the time.

The League isn't very happy after hearing that all the goal judges from the SCF have filed workers' compensation claims due to CTS.

If they had played a team with a good goaltender in the finals, they would have lost. Niemi gave up 22 goals in 6 games (3.67 GAA) but he was better than Leighton/Boucher who gave up 25 (4.17 GAA).

This was the worst goaltending I can remember ever seeing in a finals.

Niemi finished with a .910 save percntage but in the finals he had an .877 save percentage. Yes .877 This must be a record but they still won because they scored over 4 goals/game.

Lucky? Yes.

And the point is proven that you can pretty much spin any argument the way you want to to justify a team being lucky or whatever.

For any bitter Penguins fan in 2008, I can guarantee you they probably have a laundry list of why the Wings were lucky to win it all of at least 100 items, whether they are legitimate or not.

It's a stupid ridiculous argument.

Every team is going to get lucky every now and again to win a championship, in any sport. Happens in every league. Good teams both get lucky sometimes and make their own breaks from luck.

Like these championships are tainted or aren't good enough because a team wasn't "fully good" or whatever. Give me a fricken break.

The players on the team should get a bonus that doesn't reflect on the cap at all.

Must be a republican who thought of this idea.

#1998648 How much better would we be looking with Leino and Kopecky

Posted by ComradeWasabi on 12 June 2010 - 02:10 PM

As has been already stated and as will probably be stated to you plenty in future posts...Leino played himself out of here with lack of production, etc., whether it was "fair" or not. Kopecky probably would still have a hard time getting top-line minutes still. More power to them for doing better elsewhere but they still probably wouldn't get much time here.

On a side note, it's another blueadams line combo thread, so do the following below...




I'm really proud that I started the blueadams line combo drinking game. :hehe:

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 12 June 2010 - 12:10 PM

Hindsight is 20/20, my friend. Besides, Kopecky still sucks and Leino played himself out of Detroit and his attitude didn't help either. I think we'll all soon forget about the Leino trade once Hudler is back. I have a feeling that he's going to surprise a lot of naysayers.
