As if there aren't enough empty seats at the Joe.

Trevor Gillies would have probably stood over the kid and celebrated.

Kane hates old people and Toews hates children. Nice job Chicago. :thumbdown:

That kid is lucky it wasn't Kronwall, though.

We're not making the playoffs this season.

#2206824 Best Playoff Series of the Last 15 Years

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 September 2011 - 10:34 PM

Maybe this doesn't make me a "die hard" fan but I'm not as much of a "competitive series" sort of guy like some of you guys on here. I voted for the Flyers series with no hesitation. I would much, much rather watch the Wings dominate a supposedly superior opponent. Especially since, at that time, the Flyers were supposed to run over the Red Wings. It was awesome to watch the Wings outsmart and outwill the Flyers in four games.

I'd much rather watch dominance as well.

However, those series aren't as memorable as the competitive ones which have lots of ups and downs.

BTW, if we beat San Jose last year in game 7, I have no doubt most people would have voted for that. It's a shame.

#2206257 Top 3 Players in Each Team's History

What a great idea for a thread! I can tell the OP is really knowledgeable about hockey history. I agree with pretty much the whole list.

Meh, I guess no one wants to discuss NHL history on a holiday. :D

#2206176 Top 3 Players in Each Team's History

Just thought we'd have a fun offseason thread with not much going on right now. I'm looking at many factors when compiling this list, such as: longevity, level of play, stats relative to the era, individual accolades and playoff numbers. I narrowed it down to three players because I thought that would generate the most debate and not get too complicated. At the end of the day (like everything else) this is still highly subjective, but I honestly tried to be as objective as possible.

#2205897 Winnipeg Jets' new jerseys for 2011-2012?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 September 2011 - 06:28 PM

Old logo and jersey were 10 times better, but I don't think they're allowed to use it.

cept pro wrestling is like the circus, not real, and is no way a sport.

You obviously know nothing about pro wrestling.

Wrestlers get injured more often than any other athletes. They also don't have offseasons to rest up their bodies. Concussions especially are unavoidable in the ring. Sure the action is staged, but the point is they take many injuries to the head and take a ridiculous amount of painkillers to offset their problems and aches.

Fighting isn't as common as it used to be in hockey, but guys are bigger and stronger nowadays, and getting hit in the head by these giant enforcers has to take its toll on a brain and body. Also, there's a lot of stress with this particular job over some other positions in hockey.

If I was a 6'5 Canadian thug who had no skills besides fighting while on skates. :scared:

Or if I was a 5'8 Czech wimp who is soft, lazy, but has good hands which show up every 4 or 5 games.
