#2116656 Forsberg Joins Avalanche

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 February 2011 - 07:32 PM

I think the Divealanche organization is also to blame for this.

What the f*** were they thinking? They know this guy is fragile physically and would be a distraction to a team he never joined in training camp. There are harder working players in the minors who try to make it to the big leagues, while this drama queen gets a free pass mid season whenever he wants.

What in his recent history made them think this would work? Now they've got a pathetic joke on their hands and an explanation they owe to their fans.


#2116442 Draper the goal scorer

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 February 2011 - 01:24 PM

No.

Draper should retire. He's played better this season than I thought, but there's younger and bigger guys we need on our 4th line. Draper is not going to be around for much longer anyway.

He's been a staple of this organization longer than anyone but Lidstrom, however, it's time to move on.

Ericsson should go fight that bigf****** giraffe.

I disagree with you, I'm sorry if you want to watch two people just beat the s*** out of each other just to make a show watch UFC or WWF. I think fighting is part of the game but the token goon has no place in Hockey anymore, its time to get over it and move on. Its not fun to watch two guys fight for the sake of fighting, its adds nothing to the game and at best its a distraction. Now if its two players who in the heat of the moment or to protect a player and they fight thats great, that passion is what makes hockey great, not the goons who fight for their paycheck.


There is no more WWF.

The goons who fight for the hell of it are often in the heat of the moment and are trying to protect players. Gillies has done that numerous times. Every now and then, however, things get carried away. Only way to prevent these things is to get rid of fighting altogether. You can't have it both ways.

And Milbury beat a guy in the stands with hisf****** shoe. Who the hell is he to talk about shameful actions?

f*** Milbury and Pierre for these ***** suggestions.

:ranting:

These wimps need to go watch college basketball.


#2115570 Isles vs Pens

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 February 2011 - 11:21 PM

Or how about the Panthers, who are bad at both?

Oh snap you just got told son.



(I hope that it's unnecessary to explain my sarcasm)


Of course.

Sportsnet's John Shannon tweeted thusly:
Only suspension for Penguins is the automatic suspension under Rule 70.1 for Eric Godard...Byslma off the hook.

Philly's 15th in the league in fights.

Pens didn't win too many fights Thursday, and in fact seemed to be (smartly) shying away from them and turtling. Without Cros-kin, they're also going to have a tough time winning games.


I just don't like posters who suggest that fighting somehow means a team isn't good enough to do anything else, like win.

That's bulls***. There are plenty of good teams who have fought a lot and won a lot at the same time.


#2115564 Isles vs Pens

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 February 2011 - 11:10 PM

That experience and you don't realize that fights don't win games? I don't know about you, but I'd rather win games than win fights.

Who would you rather be?

Detroit- 2nd fewest penalty minutes, 4th in overall points.
St. Louis- 4th most penalty minutes, 23rd in overall points.


Or how about the Pens and Flyers, who are good at winning games and fights?


#2115517 Jason Williams Signs with Stars

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 February 2011 - 07:40 PM

Finally they've found a right handed shot to replace what Zubov was on the powerplay.


#2115381 Isles vs Pens

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 February 2011 - 11:19 AM

Pretty sad how so many people here are crying about this.

Go watch some basketball if you can't stomach this kind of thing.

They actually allow fighting in hockey, meaning things like this can happen. Used to happen all the time too, especially in Detroit.

I just can't believe Hailey. Fought Talbot. Took him down. Went straight after Johnson.


Sign him Kenny. :thumbup:

Oh and I'd give anything to attend the next game between these two. Should be a fun one.


#2115252 Isles vs Pens

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 February 2011 - 11:21 PM

NHL getting fun again with these two brawls in one week, plus a goalie fight.

:thumbup:


#2114404 VAN defense falling apart

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 February 2011 - 07:10 PM

Yet despite the injuries, they're playing well all year.

I wish we could play like that when we have injuries. We only have Stuart out on defense, yet our defense looks like it couldn't stop a high school team from scoring.

Don't know what this will mean for them in the long run or in the playoffs, but they're playing through the injuries like a great team should. And playing better than .500 hockey since December, unlike the Wings.

This changes the balance of power now in the NHL.


#2112740 2/7 GDT: Rangers 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 February 2011 - 10:02 PM

Great game by Howard.

Terrible game by just about everyone else. Almost 50 shots against.
