#2629105 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Posted by Bill Berzeench on 09 October 2015 - 02:33 PM

I can see Cleary being like Bodhi in "Point Break" and surfing away during a hurricane.  

Back off, warchild.

I hope that he doesnt tarnish his past. He seems like a good dude.

I'd argue that hockey players - and all people - who DON'T drink too much are the ones with brain damage.

I'd argue that if you consume your single malt scotch. or bourbon mixed with soda, or even an excessive amount of ice/water - sumthin just isn't right with you :crazy:

#2625760 Islanders Unveil New Alternate Jersey

Posted by F.Michael on 17 September 2015 - 01:31 PM


The killer whale Canuck was actually worse than the stick logo, simply because the current colors are better.  However, Vancouver should have kept the Halloween colors from the early 90's.  Those were awesome.  The Flying V was interesting too, but was too corny to last.  


Here's a question.  Since they want to associate with Brooklyn, why still have "NY" written on the jersey?  They're trying to keep the worst of both worlds here.  Nets colors but keep the NY lettering.  



Yous got a problem wit Brooklyn? bb.jpg

Cleary should be awarded with Masterton Trophy for perseverance and ability to squeeze out contracts year after year after year.

#2623691 Grantland: The Heavyweight Belt of NHL Rivalries

Posted by F.Michael on 21 August 2015 - 05:59 PM

That's definitely the point YOU are making. But several other people here have insinuated that the amount of punching is directly proportionate to the intensity or bitterness of the rivalry and lamented the future of rivalries because fighting is down. Which is crap. There are tons of REALLY intense rivalries that exist because of the game, and not because of the penalties.

Just like a-holes - everyone has an opinion.


And for the record - as a fan - it's been years since I 'felt' the intensity of past rivalries...IMHO - there isn't a rivalry today that can  match-up to what we saw 15 plus years ago.


Yes - the fighting - the cheapshots - the hard nosed play are all key, and it lends a helping hand in hating a rival.

#2622146 Then and Now: Tatar vs Hudler

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 03 August 2015 - 11:19 AM

Tatar is similar to Hudler, but a bit bigger and quite a bit faster.  Hudler puts up more points now, but a lot of that is a reflection of his roles with the Flames.


Where is eva ? We need him to confirm this.

As much as I'm a fan of Miller on the fourth line (& of course star wars nicknames), I'd really like to see how well a callahan-glendog-ferrero fourth line would play together sometime in the next couple seasons.

Han-Luke-Lando works with the Star Wars motif

#2619569 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

Posted by Manny>Ozzie(by a long shot) on 08 July 2015 - 09:28 AM

0 Vezinas = no hall= no number retirement.

Can you honestly say that Chris Osgood was one of the best goaltenders of all time? How many times did Roy or Broduer get benched in the prime of their careers, let alone ever?

When was he ever among the elite goaltenders in any given year? He accumulated wins with a long career on a team that was going to dominate the regular season regardless of the goaltender. Remember 2005-2006, everyone likes to hate on Manny but didn't the wings collect 50+ wins that year? Doesn't that prove the wings were going to win in the regular season regardless of goaltender?

Regarding the playoffs, goaltending was never really a strength or weakness, scoring goals was. When we succeeded in the playoffs it was when we scored at will, not when a goalie played lights out and we sqeaked out 2-1 wins.

Chris Osgood may have 400+ wins, but he himself was never instrumental in those wins. You can't say that about the other tenders in the hall.
