#2507762 What is everyones second favorite team?

Posted by T.Low on 09 April 2014 - 06:46 PM

I really only follow Detroit and GR, but I must say the Canucks have been a fun team to watch lately,...implode off ice, that is.

From CBC:
 

 
Why the urgency to fill this position ASAP? A fear of more rioting?
​Their ownership is a train wreck.



I would think they want to get a decision maker (Linden) in position ASAP to be ready for the first wave of available GMs. If they would have fired Gillis back when it was apparent he was in over his head, they could have had a shot at Nill.

Copy and paste from...crap, can't remember-

Then asked if Crosby is the leagues MVP Babcock joked, Whos in the running? Im just trying to survive here. I dont even know. Right now I think its Glendening. No, Im just kidding.


#2507484 The Niklas Kronwall Appreciation Thread

Appreciation thread?



Did you appreciate the two lazy missed poke checks on that goal when he should have just stood him up and been done with it?

Jay Leno as GM, Letterman as president, and Conan can wait in the weeds for Leno to retire.



I'm going with Craig Ferguson replacing lettermen on the late show. Mark my words


#2506112 4/5 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs Red Wings 3

Posted by T.Low on 05 April 2014 - 02:16 AM

Hmm. I guess I'll see just how big of a Wings fan my wife really is.

It's our 5th anniversary, and our first time away from the kids together (our kids, not Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, and Nyquist!) and we'll be staying at one of Vancouver's top luxury hotels

I wonder if I'll be able to see the tv from the tub?

27 goals puts him into top 30 goal snorers, tied with Hossa, one behind Toews and Parise, two behind Kane, etc.of course he's got ten and twenty fewer games than the others mentioned.

The Devils are more in it than I'd thought. Their remaining schedule is a friggin' cakewalk.




Brunner is 3 pts away from tying his lockout shortened Red Wings totals.

And the penalty he drew, the cross check he took to the head didn't slow him at all. No "omg, I got hit in the side of the head, ouch, look everybody, ouch, someone hit me with their stick! "

Glendening is shutting down and pissing off the likes of Crosby and Stamkos in his rookie season - and he wasn't even suppposed to be on the roster. That's huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge. Goals will come. He's certainly had his chances.





Did you guys hear Ken Daniels quoting Babcock on Glenny:

"Other than Nick Lidstrom, Steve Yzerman, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Crosby, Toews, and Bergeron, Luke Gendening is the most competitive player I've ever coached."


#2504228 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Why won't this thread just die already

cuz there's no game tonight


#2504207 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by T.Low on 31 March 2014 - 05:43 PM

The Leggy pass on the Nyquist Tampa goal is nothing to discount: he got the puck, turned with a stride and a half and hit a speeding Nyquist exactly where he needed it, all in an instant. Exactly the kind of pass our young D often struggles with.

While it may not be a difficult pass to make, it is an easy pass to screw up.


#2504121 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

After the Calder Cup run and last night, Gudas is already sick of Nyquist. He's thinking, "Crap, this is what I've got to look forward to for the rest of my career?"

Speaking of Gudas and last night, we really do need a (younger) Bertuzzi type on his line. Guys are going to run Gus and try to make his life hell.


#2502668 They Call me...Tater Salad

Posted by T.Low on 28 March 2014 - 05:45 PM

My GF had neighbors like that.  Fortunately her apartment complex didn't put up with it very long.  3rd time they had the police there for a noise complaint, the kids were gone.
 
I understand having fun, but the kid needs to grow up a bit or get a nice house in the suburbs.



When I was that age, I was doing similar things. Only I was in my own home town, in my native country. My father was still alive and very available for guidance and perspective. And I wasn't making bank. And I wasn't nearly as high strung to begin with.

It's a strange period in his life, no doubt. But IMO, they're the golden years. I would recommend not growing up too fast. You can never go back.


#2502666 Avery vs. Brodeur

Posted by T.Low on 28 March 2014 - 05:20 PM

haha, yeah. Eff Neal.
 
No matter what you say about him, though, he has the trump card every time:
 
Elisha Cuthbert


Au contraire , mon ami: I've got Jen Murphy, known across our hockey league as The Jenerator. As a defensive pairing, our goalie once informed us that we'd gone 11 games in a row without getting scored upon. Murph is a Class IV white water kayaker. An excellent mountain biker. Restored her own 63 Volvo. Dabbles in triathlons. Is too smart to ever go out with Avery or Phanuef. And most relevantly, is a huge Red Wing fan.

Cuthbert would be fun for a long weekend, but as far as a lifetime goes, I've got the trump card.
