Very funny.  Except, Brian McGrattan is better at life than you are.

The most obvious difference between he and I is that only one of us is currently employed.

Nothing about this thread is disappointing me so far.  Also nothing about it is surprising me either.  God bless LGW!

Sad day for hockey, this league is quickly becoming something it shouldn't be.
 
I hope he finds a place on another team, or a job in the front office somewhere. What af****** league it has a place for rats but no place for great energy players and like Burke said I'm sure all thef****** greenpeace folks are happy now. Of course the softest team - which not long ago used to have the HW champion - in the league willk pass so I'm not getting my hopes up.
 
How the hell does Burke not step in here ? He is the president and should overrule the GM in that case it's a bad day for hockey


Cept HW champions used to actually be able to play hockey too

I hope not one team claims him

Pulkinnen is being severely over rated here.

Word.

 

I remember Malik sulking a few years ago when Babcock accused him of "starting fires" when he heard he was a blogger. :lol:

 

When isn't Malik sulking?

Really liked that play by Hicketts in the last minute. Just a smart little play, but he held onto the puck on the delayed offside. The Canadians were jumpy all game - was nice to see someone calm things down a bit at an important time in the game.

Looked like it was going to be a blowout but Russia fought back, gotta tip your hat to Russia.

Agreed.  I'm guessing it has a lot to do with our blueline.  If you look at who gets the fewest offensive zone starts on the team, it's Miller, Andersson and Glendening by a country mile.  Even trustworthy guys like Zetterberg and Datsyuk start in the offensive zone 60% of the time.  Kindl and Lashoff, unsurprisingly start in the offensive zone 70% of the time. 

 

 

 

I think that line is vastly under-appreciated. It's the only line that has been intact all season and consistently worked.

I respect Mirtle, Yost and all their other mathfreaks but as soon as I see their name ---> skip article.
 
If I wanted to read math stuff I'd look somewhere else and not at a sports site...with a horrible design

It's ok, a lot of people are frightened by things they don't understand.

I don't know if playing strong d and puck possession against Denmark of all teams is really all that impressive...

 

Yeah, except that they have done it to every single team they have played so far...

Hopefully for his sake he learns how to be a team player

 

This is the issue I found with Drouin last year as well. He played with Mantha but a lot of the times he skated around trying to do everything himself. Mantha finished the tournament with the highest scoring despite it, but it really screwed Canada later in the rounds especially Finland.
