#2610375 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by Helmethead on Yesterday, 09:47 AM

I think the Wings are one of the best teams in the league at ripping the shot over or wide of the net. I wonder if there will be Corsi stats on this in the future. Lol

Shanny called Mrs. B personally and said he'd make her feel right at home.




#2609733 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

At least as much as lawyers do. 
 
Besides, helping you dingbats see the light is almost a full time job. 
 
Edit:  You should read the foreword by Erich Fromm in the reissued addition of "1984".  It argues that modern capitalist societies ARE the Matrix.  You ARE being lulled into a passive state of "happiness".  Which equates to nothing more than satiation.  But you didn't choose it.  And it wasn't forced on you.  It's just an unintentional, uncaring, affect of affluence. 


Just chiming in to say that Fromm's foreward alone is worth the price of admission to reread the reissue. 1984 was never one of my favorites, but it is fascinating to revisit it every 10 years or so in light of how society continues to (d?)evolve.

As for Slava, I'm now picturing him as a villain on horseback in some Eisenstein film...

The obnoxious thing about it is that it won't make Russian professional hockey more viable. It won't do anything he's hoping it will do.  It will just make Russian hockey crappy because nobody who's playing it will give a damn.  And anybody who gives a damn will turn their efforts toward activities that aren't subject to repression. 

 

How do I know?  Because it already happened with Russian sports.  And industry.  And art.  And everything else.  Forcing people to do something stifles motivation, creativity, passion, hard work, and effort.  It NEVER increases them.  Ask Slava, it's exactly how he felt in 1989.

 

On the contrary, most Russians regard the soviet era as the golden age of Russia. You only regard the period as stifling because you have been blinded by decadent western imperialism.

 

What's Slava's job in Russia again?




#2609318 ECF : Tampa Bay Former Rangers vs. New York New Rangers

Posted by marcaractac on 21 May 2015 - 09:47 AM

Really don't want to see Tampa in the Finals.  The only good thing would be to see Yzerman succeed, but that would make me dislike Holland even more.  

 

But the NHL would be much better off if NYR made the Finals.  Better for ratings.  

 

I want an Anaheim/Tampa finals specifically for a ratings disaster. When a league is wanting to expand when it has teams that many already don't care for, they need a ratings nightmare for the finals to open their eyes. Cali does not need 3 teams. Florida does not need 2 teams. New York does not need 183 teams.

You don't need to tell me.  I can tell you a Moscow, break-in, apartment story you'd never believe.  


Did you break into Putin's mother's apartment again and swap out all her photos with pictures of MacGratton?

Howard Berger ‏@Berger_BYTES 11m11 minutes ago

Can't confirm, but told in email from source #Leafs offered Babcock dual role of GM and coach. Why not, huh?

 

Lol if this is true then add it to the list of things Babcock said he wanted that ended up not being true. 

1. Biggest thing is where family wants to be. - Family wants to stay in MI

2. Money doesnt matter - Takes massive contract

3. Wants to win - Toronto is terrible

4. Is a coach and doesnt want to manage - Toronto offers coach/gm role.

 

Toronto it is!

Sounds like a married man wrote this post.  :hehe:

Just because I'm on a 'diet' - that doesn't mean I can't look at the 'menu'  :innocent:

I'm waiting for a Mike Babcock press conference live on NHL to happen. Where Babs says "The team I have chosen is..." then he stands up, rips off his suit and tie to reveal an nWo t-shirt.

Still $5M a year, which Detroit can match, BUT for 6 years is the bad part.  We's for sure lose Blash and then we'd be stuck with questionable line combos or another 6 years and never really see what Pulk and Jurco can do...let alone see Mantha, AA or Larkin on a top line. Heck, Weiss, Smith and Jurco would be all but gone with Babs here, and Howard would too come deadline day...I say let him go to Buffalo, let him try is hand at building a winner instead of inheriting one, plus he gets Jack Eichel, a franchise player. I am not mad if he goes, I would be mad though, if Blash leaves our organization, he knows the kids better than anyone....Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco, Sheahan, Mrazek, Pulkky, Ferraro, Callahan, Marchenko, Jensen, Ouellet, Sproul, AA...Who else would be better coaching those guys?


Maybe when the decision is made, Babs can call LeBron and get his help in making the announcement...


If Babs take Detroit offer, say goodbye to Blashill...say hello to Abby on the top line and Helm on the 2nd....again...


of course if Family wants to stay in Oakland County...then, he will take the lessor offer...
