#2677865 NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

Posted by F.Michael on 16 June 2016 - 10:20 AM

That and more importantly i believe a team will relocate to Quebec City ... Maybe Carolina Hurricanes

And don't forget Winnipeg got Atlanta during a hockey season so it's a possibility Quebec also joins Vegas in 2017-2018

This would be a best possible scenario.

 

Hopefully when a team does make it's way to QC - these bad boys are resurrected...

I wonder if the venue will have such of  Vegas amenities as a Drive-thru chapel or a Fat Elvis impersonator as the hot dog vendor. Rockettes as Ice girls.




#2677102 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 07 June 2016 - 08:50 AM

Pittsburgh has never won the Cup on home ice.  

 

Although they had a chance in the 1995 Finals before the game was interrupted by terrorist attacks in OT of game 7.

 

It's a shame, Tolliver was really on top of his game in that one too.




#2677069 Possible Leak of Florida Panthers New Logo

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 June 2016 - 06:35 PM

Nothing wrong with the original Panthers jersey.  No makeover needed.  

 

Please give Carolina a new jersey, color scheme and logo.  Same with Arizona and a few others.  

I agree with this, I liked the original Panthers jersey so much that I own one. This new one is a downgrade as far as i'm concerned. I liked the Fisherman Islanders jersey too so my opinion is compromised. 




#2676475 ECF : Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 May 2016 - 04:43 PM

I actually think Fleury has been good in the playoffs other than 2 years....which were dreadful.  With them going back to Murray, I wonder what that does to Fleury's confidence?  Game 5 of the conference finals was a tough spot to be starting your first game in a couple months, so perhaps they discussed this and whether they stuck with it or not wasn't a big deal as he needs to shake off the rust.  On the Murray side, perhaps they thought he just needed a break as he never started that many games in a row before + high pressure games.  I also don't think it was just 1 bad game, he wasn't great for a few in a row.
 
I think they are in trouble now...obviously being down 3-2, but it's never good to have a question mark in goal at this time of year.  They'd probably argue the issue is deciding between 2 very capable goalies, which is probably true, but the whole mess they've made of it can't be a confidence booster.


I think what you mean to say is that fleury has ONLY been good in two playoffs. Other than that his numbers range from 2.40-4.63 gaa and .875-.915 sv%

I always hated Shawn Michaels. He was a tool of a wrestler. Always a Hogan, Brett Hitman Heart and Taker fan. Glad Penguins lost in his visit lol.

Posted by NerveDamage on 23 May 2016 - 12:48 PM

 

I always wanted the Wings to have a Holmstrom, Helm, Hudler line.   :hehe:

I had it in my NHL 12 team as my 3rd line and called it the tiriple H line


 

Hulk Hogan is a Lightning fan.  Just sayin..............

...don't go there, Brother!

Insert "just like the real Nyquist doesn't like to get dirty to win" comment here.

Now he'll be living in one of those tall apartment buildings in Russia.  

Right down the street from the nuclear power plant where Homer Simpsonov works.

Why couldn't that happen against Detroit?


#2675819 ECSF : Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 12 May 2016 - 12:27 PM

Crazy looking back. So many people had picked this team to win the cup.

 

"No way anyone's going to beat the Capitals".

 

I think we all underestimated Penguins. They really had been the best team in the league post all-star break. All it took was for Crosby to find his groove and for Kessel to mesh with the new team I guess.

 

This team now has Crosby, Malkin and Kessel. Two top players in the world and one of the best goal scorers in the league. 

 

Dam them!

 

After the way they finished the last few months of the regular season, I doubt anyone was underestimating them.  Its not even Crosby really, he did very little in this last series.  It's not Malkin either, it's that second line of Kessel, Bonino, Hagelin and the goaltending of Murray.  That second line gave them the depth they needed to compliment the stars and Murray is like the anti-Fleury.  Murray has every reason in the world to meltdown and does not, while Fleury has a meltdown several times in a playoff season.

 

Interesting little fact.  The Stanley Cup champion in 1976 had a rookie goalie.  The Stanley Cup champion in 1986 had a rookie goalie.  The Stanley Cup champion in 2006 had a rookie goalie.  Now it's 2016 and there's a rookie goalie that's on a huge hot streak.  We need to start a rookie goalie in 2026.

I like Guy Boucher better when he played the villain in Casino Royale.
