Pavel Datsyuk....saving careers and LGW's opinions on their favorite whipping boys. He really is MAGICAL!!! :thumbup:

Scientist call this phenomena the Lidstrom-Dandenault Effect.

Looked really good today, working his little legs off.

#2112906 2/7 GDT: Rangers 2 at Red Wings 3

He is a purveyor of unreality. Watching him sort of hang back on the backcheck, then come out of nowhere to steal the puck, like he knew what was happening all along, like it was all planned out ahead of time... just blows my mind.

He can see things before they happen......It is a Jedi trait.

#2109387 Observations from March 26th, 1997

Posted by Nev on 03 February 2011 - 03:25 AM

Well, that was an awesome watch last night :thumbup:

Loved seeing Maltby + Draper in their prime, after all the hate thats been spewed on this forum towards them the last few years, to see them skating, hitting and agitating was a joy.

And lulz at the Ward - Severyn fight, when Severyn loses his jersey you can actually see the fear in Ward's eyes "Oh F*&k! I'm gunna get my face pounded! :scared: ". Luckily for him Devorski intervened, cos Severyn was in no mood for mercy :ph34r:

Hard to watch a hockey game with no defense on both sides.

Was Hockey not popular in the 80s?

#2106046 Ducks Sued for Anti-Semitism by Former Draft Pick

Posted by Nev on 27 January 2011 - 01:47 AM

Really? C'me on now...Lets use this with any other bullied group and see how motivating it is:

Fags are only interested in ass pirating and spreading HIV
N#ggers are only interested in Grand theft auto and watermelon

You get my drift here. Any usage of someone's ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, culture, religion ect in the workplace is off limits. If the guy worked for a fortune 500 company and his boss said this s*** to him, the boss would be fired and the company sued. "Hey Johhny, you little ***, go take your *** ass and get some work done" is not a motivator...Its bullying.

I am tired of making excuses for people that allow others to try and bully or intimidate people that are in the minority. The kid shouldnt be painted as the bad guy here because the incident should not have happened. I know people can say "its hockey...grow some balls" but this type of intolerance is exactly why Iginla, to this day still hears the N word and why people like Theo Fleury do not speak publically of abuse they indured because sport is a culture of intolerance.

I never said I approved of it, I said that is what it might be. And if you think this kind of thing isn't said all the time in proffesional sports (and in the military) you're living in Fantasy Land. I agree that in a normal workplace this kind of thing would get you fired, but the locker room and the barrack room are not normal workplaces. And I guarentee you, Mike Babcock has said things to Redwings players that would get you fired in an ordinary business.

Getting in someones face and screaming obscenties is not acceptable in a normal business - in hockey its a prime motivational technique.

#2096871 Mike Milbury is at it again

I hope we've all learned a valuable lesson from this. Never, ever listen to anything Mike Milbury has to say.

Exception: He's ringing you with a trade offer.

NHL.com is good for highlights, 3 articles a day about Crosby, an uh, that's about it.

Murph said it best - blindside hit on a player in a vulnerable position who was unable to protect himself.

#2091944 The Comparison of Helm to Draper

To quote Scotty Bowman, "The safest place on the ice is between the pipes when Kris Draper's on a breakaway"

And I'm getting bored with this "go after the opponent following a clean hit" garbage,

#2074687 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by Nev on 09 December 2010 - 01:35 AM

Honest mistake, nothing should come of it.

Hey, even the guy who does promos on Fox Sports Detroit mixes up his Rs and Ws. It sounds like he calls the Red Wings Weekly show "Wed Wings Weekwy" and the network "Fox Sports Detwoit".

Or like Bill Jeanerette calling us "the rings" during a radio commentary a couple of years ago. Now that was a freudian slip :champs:

#2074069 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by Nev on 08 December 2010 - 01:49 PM

Sad yes, but given the history of inequality concerning human rights all over our planet it's not surprising. I'm thankful everyday that I live in a country that never condoned or allowed slavery, and I'm glad that the USA is doing everything it can to make up for mistakes of the past. That being said, I'm sure Panger didn't mean to imply anything with his slip up, and I don't think anything will come of this, he may be annoying at times but I doubt he's racist given that he's good buddies with Stevie Y, and The Captain would never be friends with anyone who was like that I'm sure.

Don't be too proud. The only reason that Canada as you know it never participated in slavery is quite simply because it isn't old enough, even if you go as far back as 1867.

You might also want to do some reading on pre-confederation Canada.


Slavery is as old as human history, and I get really hacked off at the modern day PC propaganda that slavery was something that was only done by white europeans to black africans.

#2070240 Bert's role with the team

Posted by Nev on 29 November 2010 - 01:46 AM

As good defensively as Pav & Z are, they've always struggled to shut down the top power forwards - Nash & Getzlaf have always given us fits. If Babcock is turning Bert into a shutdown forward its more proof that he's the best coach in the league.

#2069373 Pronger falls victim to "Avery Rule"

Posted by Nev on 27 November 2010 - 03:43 AM

You are all whining and calling foul ONLY because its Pronger and you all hate him.

I'm confused, you're saying that like its a bad thing? :blink:

Pronger has no grounds for complaint, he should consider that a tiny fraction of payback for the 20 cross-checks he gets away with every game.
