#2296804 What's REALLY going to happen this off-season?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 April 2012 - 07:41 PM

Parise would be a good addition, but that lineup the OP posted would be lucky to get out of the second round.

Sadly, I think that's the best lineup we can hope for next season.

I would have babies with any of the guys the OP listed. :D


#2296400 The Franzen, Datysuk, Bertuzzi line

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 April 2012 - 07:57 PM

This would be a great line if Bertuzzi was transported to 2004 and Franzen transported to 2008.

That aside, this line is a joke and so is Babcock for continuing to put them on the ice, instead of putting Datsyuk and Zetterberg together for the final games against Nashville. Don't know if he was just trying to prove a point or what.

Even the coach thinks they choked.

You realize we choked out too, right?



...



Stop making us look stupid.


Technically, we weren't a favorite, let alone the top seed.

Or that Neal doesn't look like Shrek's ugly cousin.

#2295965 Shorter Overtimes

Yeah, it seems teams are much more willing to trade chances now. The refs also don't really put their whistles away anymore like they used to either.

I think that will change a little bit in the next rounds as the teams with relatively poor defense and sub-par goaltending will be mostly eliminated.


Well, the OT's haven't been one sided, just really free flowing and open. Even the teams that will advance have played that open style.

Many of these games aren't even going 5 minutes before they're over.

Not like Chicago has any chance at beating Nashville in 2nd round.


They do, because Chicago can actually score goals and not hit shinpads and crests.


#2295951 Shorter Overtimes

Seems like overtimes have ended a lot faster the last few years than I can ever remember.

The marathon overtime games of the past are fading away. About 10 years ago especially, there were multiple OT games seemingly every night.

I guess in one sense, this era of hockey brings more exciting back and forth OT's, hence the game ends faster. Ten years ago, there was more trapping and less chances, hence the games went on longer. Of course, there are still games from time to time that go multiple OT's (we already had one in these playoffs), but I'm noticing they're becoming more rare.

Personally, I miss seeing longer overtime games, especially when other teams are playing. Just seeing the grind and tear that long games have on the players adds to the playoff excitement. Goals in such games are so backbreaking for the team that loses them. Now, the games end before I can even sit down to watch the OT.

It's a sad day for the NHL.


#2295687 Worst Summer Headline

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 April 2012 - 10:35 AM

Easily the Hudler one.

Lidstrom will eventually retire. If not this season, than next.

Lilja I would welcome of course. Guy won us the Cup with his manhood.

Wouldn't want Vancouver to win, but I expected that this season.

Holland's statement wouldn't surprise me. It's what we've come to expect from him.

The last two times Chicago was eliminated from the playoffs was in OT.

Hope that trend continues.

Actually the young male ones are the biggest pieces of s*** I've ever met. Same goes for their girlfriends that think Oshie is the best player ever


I've met more annoying Blues fans than most people here have.

I can't imagine how they'll act if they actually win something.


#2295536 Death of the integrity of the NHL.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 April 2012 - 10:27 PM

terrible statement, there were plenty of attempts to injure back in the day they just were more accepted and harder to follow through on, hockey is a tough sport and those who play it know this, it is just now morons who know nothing about the game and the extremely liberal hockey media are up in arms about any type of physicality.


Attempts to injure back then weren't what they are now.

Now everyone wants to jump up and hit someone in the head. Everyone is wearing helmets, yet concussions are rampant.

I just don't like how fighting is grouped together with cheap hits under the term "hockey violence". I don't think that's fair.
