Abdelkader's face has given the Sharks a lot of momentum.

Injure Thornton next.


#2258273 Yzerman asks Pavel Kubina to Provide list of teams

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 February 2012 - 12:54 PM

I'll take Kubina if Yzerman includes Malone in the deal as well.
Kubina and Malone for kindl, emmerton, and a low pick. Tampa Bay gets some young talent to work with, clean up some cap space, and we get veteran leadership and grit to help us in the playoffs. I think it's a fair deal for both sides


He'd certainly make us tougher.

I still can't believe this pylon survived the "new NHL".

He's lucky he played for the Pens and got away with interference all the time.

I agree with you that there should not be expansion, but do you honestly believe that Saskatoon can support an NHL team? Saskatoon and Regina combined don't have .5 million people (I am taking the city stats). They could likely fill an NHL arena, but the corporate support wouldn't be enough.


Maybe.

Atlanta has a decent size population and look how that turned out. Some places just aren't hockey markets and the league has to realize that. You can't grow flowers in a field of s***.

Expansion?

The league needs relocation right now and not expansion.

Move Phoenix to Quebec and the Florida Panthers to Saskatoon.


#2257126 Blackhawks' Losing Streak: Nine Games and Counting

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 February 2012 - 11:26 AM

Remember the Wings February in 2008? It gets pointed out like 10,000 times here on LGW, so I thought I'd do it as well. Granted, we were in better shape in the standings, but I expect them to make the playoffs anyway.

They'll make a move at the deadline and get better somehow.

No one in the West wants to play this team in the first round. We could beat them, but it still wouldn't be preferable.

Too bad it wasn't Ott.

Why would they trade him in the division?

#2256058 2/12 GDT : Flyers 3 at Red Wings 4

True. Some points in favor of this era, however, is not only the parity within the system but the speed of the game.


But the Flyers had to contend with Montreal and Boston in their era.

The league is, however, more competitive today. That's why I said this streak is pretty impressive in this day and age, even if shootout victories are involved.


#2256038 2/12 GDT : Flyers 3 at Red Wings 4

In this day and age, it's impressive for any team to win 20 in a row at home. And we have a chance to add to it.

However, I think it's fair to point out that the '76 Flyers played before there were overtimes, let alone shootouts. They won 20 in a row at home in "regulation". Of course I'll get negged for this post, but I like hockey history and think it's important to point that out. Same thing with Brodeur breaking Parent's wins in a season record. The shootout has put a different spin on records.

Lastly, I've never been a big believer in needing home ice, but this year it might be more important than ever before. The Wings are unbeatable at home but very average on the road. They need to keep rolling and secure first in the West.

10 game winning goals for Franzen.

LeftWinger will like that. :lol:

I hope Max Talbot gets raped by homosexual werewolves with STD's.

19 in a row is pretty good...I'd take another trip to the playoffs over 20 home wins in a row.

Still lots of time to take the game over. We are getting chances...need to start making them count.

We'll have at least 3 more PPs. And get 2 goals out them.


Right, because winning this game increases our chances of missing the playoffs somehow.

:rolleyes:
