Jagr should have shot.  




#2552076 11/26 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers 2 at Red Wings 5

Helm, Datsyuk and Weiss on the same line?  The helicopter line.  No wings.  




#2552017 Chelios Is Not Too Fond of Shanahan

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 November 2014 - 04:59 PM

Meh.  He didn't really say anything too bad.  Shanny didn't have management experience and he is a "hockey politician".  

 

Not like Chelios called him out for sleeping with a teammates wife................................. :sarcasm:

This team is not going to succeed until it gives Dan Cleary some real linemates.  It's brutal to watch him playing with these scrubs.

That was worse than average from Howard.  




#2550837 Smith and Ericcsson?

I love fighting and would love to see it returned to what it was, but yes it's 100% slowly phasing itself out.

 

And it's phased out on LGW too.  About 5 years ago, there were countless pro-enforcer posters on here.  Now, they're phased out and replaced by this crowd.  




#2550835 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Someone finally picked up one of our jobbers off waivers.   :clap:

 

Seems like that never happens.  




#2550229 Smith and Ericcsson?

I think they understand it's part of the game, they just don't want it to be.
And its 'part of the game' like hooking is part of the game.

 

Hooking isn't fun, though (no prostitute jokes, please :lol: ).  

 

If you're a Wings fan, fighting is technically not a part of the game anymore.  We're like the old Soviet teams whose coaches instructed them not to fight back against the Canadians.  

 

Smith did nothing wrong.  It was just bad luck he got hurt.  




#2550076 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 November 2014 - 08:59 PM

Pronger has been overshadowed by Lidstrom his entire career, and now will likely enter the HOF.....................in the same class as Lidstrom.   :lol:




#2550064 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 November 2014 - 06:36 PM

Should be Lidstrom, Pronger, Fedorov and Lindros.  




#2549967 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 November 2014 - 10:29 PM

Pronger is this generation's Brad Park (except he actually won a Norris)

 

Point is, he'll be overshadowed by Lidstrom.  But Pronger is one of the greatest players of his era.  His playoff numbers alone, with three different teams in the Finals, are very impressive.  He's easily a first ballot guy.      




#2549656 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 November 2014 - 09:19 AM

Fedorov will make it in.  Should be a first ballot choice, too.  




#2549655 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 November 2014 - 09:17 AM

Nothing against Abdelkader, but when guys like him are getting top line minutes - ya know sumthin ain't right.

 

Sometimes, the special kid gets to walk with the prom queen.  

 

In this case, Babcock has the special kid going out with the prom queen.    




#2549652 HoF Power Rankings: 1st pick to start team today

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 November 2014 - 09:15 AM

Gretzky had longevity over Lemieux and Orr, who both had health issues.  That's why he'd be a better pick to start your franchise with.  




#2549548 Malkin hit on Girardi

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 November 2014 - 01:32 PM

Players don't know when their teammate has been cheapshotted or not.  They just see a guy down and react without thinking, in the heat of the moment.  And it's not their job to attend to an injured Girardi.  They're not doctors.  The team doctors can do their jobs better.   

 

I have no problem with it.  It deters players from taking shots at your stars, whether they're clean or not.  I don't want Datsyuk getting hit with a nice, clean hit either, and would have no problem if someone went after the guy that did it.  

 

Retaliation isn't what will take hitting out of the game.  The NHL's new rules and views on player safety are doing that by itself.
