#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.

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.

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.

Why couldn't that happen against Detroit?

#2675819 ECSF : Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals

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.

Steve Yzerman gets his team to yet another Conference Finals.  Just keep making Kenny look stupid.  


Without his best forward and second best d-man no less. Jim Nill has done pretty well for himself too.


Kenny hasn't upgraded the blue line in five years though, so we have that going for us. And a pointless playoff streak.

Note: Schmeling was married to a czech actress, had a jewish manager and refused the Nazi order to split. They exploited him for their s*** like many other sports- and show stars, but he was never one of them. Just a good guy, he partially paid for Joe Louis funeral too, if I recall correctly. :thumbup:

The goal Hasek gave away to Selanne in OT in Game 5 in the 2007 Conference Final to put the Wings on the ropes going back to Anaheim was another s*** moment. Last second lazy pad stack he just roofed it over. As good as Hasek was, usually when he let in a bad goal, it was REALLY bad.


For me, that ridiculously stupid Niedermeyer shot that deflected up off of Nick's stick in the final seconds hurts a lot worse. I mean....that puck just FLEW up on Hasek.

What made the 2009 loss so bad was the Wings were up 2-0 in the series. 2 damn wins away from another back to back championship. It never should have gone 7, nevermind the Wings being on the losing end. Should have been skate to the throat heading into Game 3, but they gave the Pens life instead. Horrible collapse capped off with the NHL's new golden boy skating the cup around the Joe. s*** still stings.

Its amazing to see how a team can score on Bishop when they actually dont aim for the crest dead center of his jersey. To bad the Wings never learned that.
