#2475266 Leaders need to be leaders

Posted by stillwater on 21 January 2014 - 11:18 PM

In the opening post, you were very much blaming "Z".

What's changed you line of thinking?

The rest of it, I don't comprehend.

The fact that Zetterberg didn't score 5 goals and singlehandedly beat the Blues is reason enough to package him with Jimmy Howard in exchange for a top-4 defenseman and a tough guy who hasn't been born yet.

Fans were on the seat, players and fans alike love it that's good ol' hockey the way it used and should be. I know people that are still talking and loving the Isles Pens game games like this are hard to forget, because they provide everything fans love about hockey.


I'm concerned that your dinosaur has run off with your paradigm.

Hockey everywhere is trying to distance itself from pointless line brawls ... the types that exist only because the talent pool is so watered down, that there is room on most teams for a cement head like Westgarth who simply cannot play hockey at the NHL level, therefore is forced to fight to make a living.

It's a joke. It was fun for a minute with the Flyers and Bruins in the 70's, but it got old and stupid really quickly.

I'm going to agree with the opening post. Without all the injuries many of the young guys from GR would never have gotten the chance to play this season. They're learning quickly and they've been fun to watch.




#2474551 Would you trade Jimmy for a top pairing dman?

Posted by stillwater on 20 January 2014 - 03:52 PM

Perhaps you should take into account recent history. Or perhaps any history at all ...

 

Jimmy Howard himself became the Red Wing starting goaltender in 2009, after only 9 career regular season NHL games.

Let them fight to the death. Problem solved.


Thinking outside the box. I like that.

Let me check the CBA.

The front-runner for the most despicable, cowardly post of the 2014 season.

How many times are you going to post the same thing?

 

We get it.

Soccer players are just a bunch of arrogant guys, who think kicking a ball 24/7 makes them "godlike".Most overrated and uninteresting sport with a bunch of very questionable atlethes. Hockey - thanks god - is the exact same opposite, hard working talented well mannered guys.


Does your close circle of friends include professional soccer players and NHL'ers? If not, how are you able to make such a bold, conclusive generalization of the two groups? Is it just an opinion, or have you done extensive research on the two groups?

How about women soccer and hockey players? Pretty much fit the same pattern?

I'm honestly curious how you can come to such a definitive judgement.

Thank goodness for the internet, the one place where you're generally not accountable

Armchair internet board sports psychologists are funny.

Would have preferred Bobby Orr, but it's not my choice.

What?

 

You waited 20 minutes for hot chocolate? You were told they were out of it and you stood in line for hot chocolate .... AGAIN?

Google it.

 

I don't want to have to be the first person in LGW history to have to back up a post with facts.




#2470231 Helm has sore groin...

Hey, how about another lines thread?

 

Helm will be fine, once his career is over ... until then, list him as day - to - day forever.
