#2302559 A general, how I would build a team

Posted by 55fan on 22 May 2012 - 07:56 AM

Honestly, nothing you've ever posted needs to be repeated here, or anywhere. Ever.

Now, now. It's a public forum. (S)he has as much right to express his/her opinion as someone with a brilliant hockey mind.

It's the off-season. We need some discussion else we die of ennui.

Not to mention that (s)he is good for my self-esteem.

O6 and Euro6? Um...you think the travel is bad now. Try that commute.

I'll pass.

He's a really big douchebag. He douchebags in an entire Conference.

#2300992 Babcock and Holland want to keep Homer.

Nice translation.

He'll get a Maltby contract.

Sign him. Let him come to camp for one more time to hang with the guys, smile, sign autographs.

If he's better than the other guys, he gets the job. If not, he rides off with our best wishes.

It's a win for him since he gets the chance. It's a win for the Wings because he'll be there to push the kids and provide competition.

It's a win for us cuz we get more options and maybe a funny interview or two.

I want that weed you smokin'.

That's their cap hits, thanks to Kenny.

I want some of your acid. It's been way over 20 years, but I do miss it at times.

#2300630 Bettman wants to tout the "Original 12" now, haha

Posted by 55fan on 11 May 2012 - 06:50 AM

Pssht. The next thing you know, he'll be saying Ringo was one of the Original Beatles.

It's not so much that it's insulting (which it is) but that in saying it, he looks like a complete idiot who knows nothing about the history of the sport (which he is).

Now that I think of it... I guess this isn't anything we didn't already know.

Perhaps we could call them the "O6:TNG".

#2300473 Dan Cleary openly admits to being at 50%

I don't think his broken ribs would have bothered him all season. I've bust my ribs a couple of times, they don't take that long to heal, and they're not too painful except in certain situations. I doubt he would even have noticed them unless he got hit a certain way.

Really? Maybe it depends on the break, but I bruised some ribs a couple of times, and I recall that it hurt to breathe and move, especially when bending.

I suppose it depends on which ribs, how badly they were injured, etc. They did heal relatively quickly.

I can't imagine playing hockey in that condition. Danny's a warrior. No doubt about it.

(BTW, kipwinger, you're having a record day. I've plussed 3 of your posts already.)

#2300467 The person below me game...

Posted by 55fan on 10 May 2012 - 06:35 AM

I've not seen it, nor is it up my alley.

(Dawn-I have the picture of you talking to Nik and Drew when Nik signed my picture for me. I have that pic, plus the one of him signing it, plus the note you sent with the pic, and I have it matted in a frame that matches the one I put the signed pic in.)

The person below me has had a pool in their yard.

It just makes me laugh.

The person below me has had plastic surgery.

And if the head gets too foamy and they have to let it rest, you can enjoy a white Russian in its place.

#2298674 Habs reportedly to buy out Scott Gomez's contact

Posted by 55fan on 02 May 2012 - 09:07 AM

Scott Gomez: Born Dec. 23, 1979.

Johan Franzen: Born Dec. 23, 1979.

Cue Twilight Zone theme.

#2298556 Predators bench Radulov and A. Kostitsyn for Game 3 of WCSF

Posted by 55fan on 01 May 2012 - 04:50 PM

For some reason, when I hear about curfews and the like, it amazes me that grown men have or need bedtimes.

Is this really worth a suspension? It sounds so high school.

I understand that they are in the playoffs, but you'd think that the players would realize the need to be at the top of their game.

Maybe I'm reading too much of my own life into this, but it seems like they'd know by this point in their lives how much they can and can't drink and how late they can stay up and still get enough sleep.

#2298311 Is Rinne Getting Exposed?

Posted by 55fan on 30 April 2012 - 05:02 PM

Not to say that he's bad or anything like that, because he's a very good goalie, but we made him look better than he is.

He would give up rebound after rebound and the Wings would all stand there and think, "Hey. There's the puck. It would have been really cool if someone would have been standing there to take another shot. Is someone going to get that? No? Oh, we're on defense now? Ok, I'll just skate to the other end. Unless my shift is over..."
