#2459466 Ericsson names daughter "Liv" in honor of Stefan Liv

Posted by T.Low on 30 November 2013 - 01:27 PM

Thanks so much you guys.

My family and I have the good fortune to know my approximate timeline. We can live each day accordingly, and plan for the time when I am not around anymore.

Stefan Liv and his family and friends had no such luxury. He was stolen from them in a moments notice without warning.


#2459429 Ericsson names daughter "Liv" in honor of Stefan Liv

And also, Liv means Life in swedish. One ended and another starts.



Now that my days are numbered as I head down the home stretch of Mortality Lane, I've come to realize exactly that: Life is neither a race nor an endurance event, but rather a relay event.


#2459427 11/29 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Islanders 0

Posted by T.Low on 30 November 2013 - 01:45 AM

Caught the replay game on Comcast tonight.


They showed Franzen laughing and smiling while talking to Helm and it looked like Helm has no idea what hes saying, replies, "yeah I actually DON'T speak Swedish"

we all talked about Nyquist being such a more well-rounded player than Brunner, but now I'm beginning to see he's just as good on the snipe as Brunner. I didn't realize Nyquist led the nation in scoring as a SOPHOMORE!

I like the idea of all the Black Sheep on the same line. Ba Ba Black Sheep.

The game could have easily been 5-4. Yay Jimmie.


#2458843 IMO maybe the law should be brought into it.

Nowhere did I say the datsyuk elbow should be turned to the law.  Maybe your english comprehension sucks but I said that it got me thinking.   .



Ha! Thought you said you weren't here to argue!

Apparently my English comprehension sucks too.

I can't help but wonder how much of this stems from not having Scotty Bowman watching the games and giving his two cents.

It's certainly been working for Chicago.


#2458348 10 former players sue NHL for concussions

Posted by T.Low on 26 November 2013 - 07:04 PM

But one major problem that I see for the future of the game is that the latest testing shows people are getting concussed at a low level, low enough so they don't necessarily know they're concussed. Two of these low level concussions is enough to cause damage including CTE.

Former Pittsburgh Steeler Ctr., Mike Webster had such severe brain damage that he was homeless after retiring from football. After his death his brain showed major CTE. At the time it was a bit of a surprise because it was thought that only speed positions like RB, WR, KR, and DB would have this issue, not linemen that took lots of lower impact hits, but on a very repetitive basis.

Even soccer players are getting it from headers

If the game is to survive, there has to be major technique changes in hitting, and major equipment changes.

As for thoughts that players knew what they were getting into because hockey is a violent game, nobody imagined they'd be mentally ill or in wheelchairs unable to feed themselves or speak.

What they are finding out now is just the tip of the iceberg.


#2458233 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by T.Low on 26 November 2013 - 02:20 AM

I'd like to see:
 
Z-Dats-Mantha
Tatar-Helm-Nyquist
Franzen-Weiss-Jurco
Callahan-Abdelkader-Sheahan
Ferraro
 
Kronwall-DeKeyser
Ericsson-Smith
Ouellet-Sproul
Kindl/Almqvist (fight for ice time and a spot)
 
 
I think Mantha is the exception.  He's a giant power forward who can dangle and score.  He should be on the top line with Z and Dats and eat the Calder trophy for breakfast, lunch and supper.  Keep Helm on the 2nd line cause he's taking it and owning it.  Weiss can be a slightly expensive shutdown guy until his scoring touch comes back, which it should with wingers like Franzen and Jurco, who I expect good things from at the NHL level.  I want to see that 4th line annoy and destroy.  I don't care if they get a goal all year, which I'm sure they would, but regardless I just want them to hit everything.  Ouellet and Sproul should be on the team next season with Marchenko next in line from what I hear. 
 
If no free agent that is the likes of Vanek or someone of that caliber wants to sign, that team above could compete for the Cup.



That's a lot of rookies.

I'm really happy with the effort we put forth tonite. I mean, it was really hard to watch this game so I want to commend all of us for fighting the urge to turn it off and walk away. Props everyone!

Hey!  I missed the damn goal putting a load of laundry in…..I wish I had another one to do.  :w00t:


I was changing a diaper on Helms goal.

Clear he looked almost like ' 02 Stevie Y trying to get up off the ice. It was that bad.


#2456965 The Dan Cleary Hate Zone

Posted by T.Low on 23 November 2013 - 05:13 PM

Sorry, I just can't hate on Dan Cleary after everything he's done for this organization. Complain maybe, but not hate.


#2456943 What I'm thankful for...

Posted by T.Low on 23 November 2013 - 03:31 PM

Nyquist is, isn't he? I mean not like mule or Sedins, but...enough to make it a perfect nickname, yeah?

He plays too much like a ninja and looks enough like a Ginga...so, yeah, he's our awesome Ginga Ninja.

Just watched his post game interview: What a class act. He is pure class and bad ass.


#2456934 What I'm thankful for...

Posted by T.Low on 23 November 2013 - 02:42 PM

I am thankful my father turned down a promotion which would have involved a move from Detroit to Pittsburgh when I was a kid.
