#2188270 Nick Lidstrom wins Norris trophy #7

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 June 2011 - 11:26 AM

Plus/Minus is a misleading stat between these 3 players. Lidstrom played in front of Jimmy Howard and his s***ty numbers, while Chara and Weber played in front of Thomas and Rinne, who put up amazing numbers (record numbers for Thomas).

Will someone explain to the morons on HFboards this one fact.

You could also explain that Lidstrom had way more points than Chara, enough for that to be a very significant fact that skewed the voting. Weber scored a lot as well, but the guy shoots about 800 times a game, so his goal total isn't as impressive as Nick's.

BTW, Yzerman was robbed for best GM.

Tampa's run was more surprising than Vancouver's, and their team ultimately took bigger leaps this season with less assets.

The entire show looked like a Vancouver suckfest, so I guess we couldn't expect any less.

Was Rinne even nominated for a Hart trophy?

He meant more to his team than anyone else. With their offensive roster, they wouldn't have even made the playoffs without Rinne.

Perry isn't even the best or most important player on his team.

Why wasn't this game in NYC?

espn is too busy riding Lebron's cock to ever talk about anything else.


#2187698 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 June 2011 - 08:43 PM

Any chance we can bring back Lang as well, and form the laziest line in hockey history?

Hudler/Lang/Jagr :scared:


#2187565 Is THIS team good enough to go the distance?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 June 2011 - 01:35 PM

I don't know, let me try and scramble this around..

Filppula-Datsyuk-*Jagr
Franzen-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi
*Laich-Helm-Cleary
Hudler-Abdelkader-Holmstrom
Mursak
Emmerton

...incredible third line would be the group that makes the real difference in most games. Pav + Val = hot fire. + Jagr = wow. Second line is tried and true. fourth line is pretty much un-playable...but, so what. sub homer in on the PP. sub abby in on the PK. sub homer in for jagr, and abby in for bert regular strength from time to time. get huds a shift here and there. they'll get their minutes.

Kronwall-Wisniewski
Lidstrom-Smith
Stuart-Kindl
Janik

Howard
*?*


I didn't see Laich in your original post. And your 4th line is a waste of time. Why not put someone like Winchester on that line? Guy has shown a scoring touch before, and is a good grinding forward that will wear defenses out as a series goes on.

I think you're trolling.


Of course you do. I didn't see you making any novel ideas in this thread.

My lineup actually made some cap sense and is a rather well rounded group that will beat most of these "proposed" lineups in a playoff series.

It's got scoring, size, skill, toughness and a good defense that will clear the crease for a change.


#2187251 Lidstrom agrees to 1-year, $6.2m contract

I just hope he's not coming back for another 2nd round exit.

This team better make whatever moves necessary to be a serious Cup contender next season. I want to see him retire on top.

This is terrible news.

Ericsson is clearly ready to become the number one D-man on this team (and has for a while), and this Lidstrom guy keeps holding him back every year with these comebacks.

It may be time for Big Rig to take his talents elsewhere.

Happy B-Day! For your present, I'm sending you a picture of an autographed Kronwall jersey.

FYI, that's not my jersey. I just saw this picture on google images, and figured it was as good as actually sending you the real thing in the mail. ;)


#2186478 Epic Boooing of Bettman

he is a lawyer. these species can tolerate humiliation hundred times worse than those boo's when their single paycheck read six-digit number.


That's all bulls***, and your whole knowledge of lawyers has been shaped by TV and fantasy.

Most lawyers coming out of law school nowadays don't make more than $50,000 a year. Actually, most recent grads don't even have jobs. The only ones making 6 figures are those who have great connections and work 60 hours a week.

I should know all this, since I'm one myself and haven't made these six-figures you speak of. At this point, Bettman is as much a lawyer as I am a Blade Runner.

Wow, those people in Vancouver really got carried away with all that booing.
