Sounds good but keep in mind that the Commissioner that he is referring to is a scum-ball lawyer.

#2211020 NHL will Look into Fighting: Shanahan

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 30 September 2011 - 04:48 PM

The thing is, nobody is being forced to fight. Guys that fight know the potential consequences. Something like 98% of NHLers feel fighting has a place in the game. The thing that i could see happening is some type of rule being implemented where the player's helmets have to stay on during the fight or some s***. Once the helmet comes off, the refs step in. I don't really see any reason to try and regulate fighting in the NHL, because there is no clear tie between fighting and the deaths of Rick Rypien, Derek Boogaard, and Wade Belak. It was documented before Rypien's death that he had psychological issues. Boogaard had drug problems. A 5 minute penalty is fine for a fight.

#2210364 9/28 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by stinky fish taco on 28 September 2011 - 09:14 PM

Really? So who's sitting so Emmerton can play? Our top 9 are Zata, Datsyuk, Cleary, Filppula, Cleary, Franzen, Holmstrom, Hudler, and bertuzzi. Our bottom 3 will be Helm, Eaves, Miller, Abdelkader, Emmerton, Mursak, Brunnstrom. Eaves and helm are locks, so somehow we are going to play both Brunnstrom and Emmerton and only go with 5 defensemen while sitting Abdelkader and Miller since Mursak is out?

Might want to re-think that.

lol wut

#2209022 Top 3 Players in Each Team's History

Posted by toby91_ca on 22 September 2011 - 08:41 PM


Actually, Richards is supposed to be second. I was throwing around what I felt the order should be, and forgot to change it. As for Howe, he was as good as Bourque or Coffey through the 1980s, and retired in the mid 1990s Parent had two great seasons, and was otherwise a very good goaltender. But he was not one of the top three goaltenders in the NHL during his career; Ken Dryden, Ed Giacomin, Tony Esposito, Gump Worsley, Jacques Plante all played through a significant portion of Parent's career and were considered better goaltenders. Parent was excellent, but ranking him based on his 74 and 75 runs would be equivalent to saying that Tim Thomas is one of the three best Bruins based on his two Vezina years and one Conn Smythe. Howe was one of the top three defensemen in the NHL during his career, and should have won the 1983 Norris. Parent was named First Team twice, and Second Team no times. Howe was named First Team three times, with no Second Team selections.
As for other Flyers, I also thought about Tim Kerr and Ron Hextall in addition to Parent as guys who were left off. I was tempted to add Brad McCrimmon as well as a tribute, as well as the fact that he made up the second half of the best defensive pairing of the 80s.

You know, I knew you had a lot of love for Mark Howe. There's is absolutely no question he was a great player, but I think you may be the only person on the planet that actually think he's a better Flyer than Bobby Clarke, that's just insane.

I won't bother mentioning anything about your comment that he was as good as Bourque in the 80s.


#2208788 Mike Modano announces retirement

Posted by eva unit zero on 22 September 2011 - 09:35 AM

Second greatest American hockey player of all time.

And whether you people like it or not, he should have retired last season and played his whole career with one franchise. He wasn't sure that he wanted to come back, and the indecision should have been enough for him to say no.


Interesting.

He wasn't better than Chris Chelios. He wasn't better than Mark Howe. He wasn't better than Frank Brimsek. He wasn't better than Pat LaFontaine. I'd probably put him fifth though, just ahead of Beezer and Barrasso. Ryan Miller is quickly moving up that list though.

Interesting piece I thought I'd share talking with Stu Grimson and the recent suicides and deaths of hockey enforcers.


#2207361 Top 3 Players in Each Team's History

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 13 September 2011 - 10:10 AM

Yes, Yzerman did all he could have done, but he was not even the best forward on the team (Fedorov), let alone player. Steve Y gets overrated by Wings fans (understandable, but still wrong), but Lidstrom is very easily better all-time player.


That's debatable. I debate it in my own head all the time. lol Based on awards and accomplishments, Lidstrom has to be considered one of the best of all time. However, Yzerman was in his prime at the same time as Lemieux and Gretzky. He missed out on a lot of scoring titles and MVPs because of that and was viewed as 3rd best back then. Would Lidstrom have been as successful if he played in his prime during the same time as Bobby Orr and Doug Harvey? Plus, Yzerman played 10 years without Scotty Bowman as coach. Lidstrom was very fortunate to always be on a talented, Cup contending team. So while, Lidstrom is a better player in terms of awards won and accomplishments, I think saying he's more talented is an illusion. Stevie definitely had a greater impact on the franchise than Nick.

BTW, how nice is it to have a problem like this where we have too many great players and we can't decide on who's the best? lol


#2206059 I could have made it to the NHL!

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 03 September 2011 - 12:57 AM

When I read this, this is the first thing that came to mind.




Great thread Steve. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

And Yeah, I was also surprised at Young Doc Holiday. Maybe we'll have to change his name to Pre-Med Holiday instead. :hehe:
