#2535227 potential team names for las vegas!

Posted by 55fan on 30 August 2014 - 08:05 AM

Tuskan Raiders!  Yes!!!!!

#2535051 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by 55fan on 27 August 2014 - 05:17 PM

People talking about desserts are making me hungry.


If they call them the Las Vegas Gamblers, I'll cry over the lack of originality.

If they call them the Las Vegas Crap Shooters, I just might buy a hat or something.


It would make for a fun away game destination, but that's probably what it would end up being- a bunch of fans of the visiting team who got the tickets as part of a casino deal.  How would that be for player morale?

Your mother is beautiful and wonderful and I want to "like" her courage (and yours) about a bajillion times. 

Took the words right out of my fingers.

She is beautiful.  I can't believe she's 75.

Boogers? Pig's blood? T-Rex semen? Hitler's rotted entrails?

Or are we talking double rainbows? Sunshine mixed with clean sheets? PUPPY BREATH?!

I need to know. It's for science.

Dan Cleary accepted the challenge.  I like that he put up the info for donating online.  I haven't seen anyone do that yet.

So initially the idea was you either donated money to ALS research organizations, or you poured a bucket of water on your head. I love how this is catching like wild-fire, but I hope some of these people are sending a check in the mail, too.



Yep.  It's doing some good!

Every once in a while for a fleeting moment, Bettman does something that makes me think he might not be the worst creature on earth.


Gotta give him props for doing that.

#2534096 Helmer: First one to get a herniated disc in the new Season?

Posted by 55fan on 12 August 2014 - 01:55 PM

Herlmer? Don't remember him being on our team lol. Must be related to hertl.

This must be why bans didn't like tootoo. Always making helm carry the load.

Bans didn't like tootoo? 


I'm a bit more worried that the Tootoos are honeymooning in Hawaii and Herlmer is with them.  Now that's carrying the load above and beyond the call o' duty.


Or maybe this is a different occasion.


Or maybe Herlmer and his lady split and Tootoo is teaching him how to pick up chicks. 

Commence the motorboat jokes.  I'm done for the day.


EDIT: was misspelling Herlmer as Hermler.  Can't have that.

Well-deserved.  3 Olympic teams, good NHL career, and all around good guy.

I hate zombies and people dressed up like zombies and shows about zombies and pictures of zombies.

...and Florida was stuck using Kopecky for it's model.


Pretty cool.  I love how the older teams seem to go forever and then, all of a sudden, they add that newfangled piece of equipment called a "helmet".

#2533307 Samuelsson signs new contract....... with Djurgarden.

Posted by 55fan on 29 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

Exactly, HS.  I liked the guy a lot.  Quite frankly, if someone offered me big money to return to an old job that I liked but couldn't do as well as I once did it, and I knew they knew all about my physical state, I'd sure give it a go, especially if I was unemployed and looking for work.


I just wish he could have played one more game (not necessarily for us) to hit the 700 mark.


Best wishes, Sammy!


#2533146 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by 55fan on 28 July 2014 - 01:22 PM

Happy dance.  Happy dance. 


Now just give us DannyD and I'll be happy.

EDIT: Make that "I'll be totally happy".  I'm now happy enough to be doing a happy dance.  When we sign Danny I'll be doing a happy backflippy kind of dance.  Right now it's more of a happy cha-cha.

#2533057 Winter is coming..

Just a request:  My mom is a Wings fan.  Please do not show her these sweaters or let her know that they are in my price range.  Thanks.

#2533040 Babcock on using advanced stats

Posted by 55fan on 26 July 2014 - 08:34 AM

I was reading an article in The Hockey News in June and it was all about advanced stats like Fenwick and Corsi. The article said Datsyuk is the measuring stick for new stats as in if they test a new stat using him as an example and he doesn't do well, the stat doesn't hold up.
I wish I could find the original article online but I haven't been able to.

That's where I read it!  I remember reading something about Datsyuk and stats, but I couldn't remember what it was. 


Now we'll have to call him the Measuring Man.  Or the Standard Man.  Nah, Magic Man has a better ring to it.
