#2111649 Teemu Pulkkinen/Griffins

Posted by titanium2 on 07 February 2011 - 08:45 AM

Umm, wow. He just hurt his own career. He could possibly be in the NHL in two years if he would have come over and got used the physical play and the rinks.


So far he's had a mostly healthy year in the Finnish league. That in itself is a huge accomplishment for him. If he doesn't want to rush his development then that's perfectly fine with me.


#2111494 Who will Pittsburgh go after?

I thought this was a thread about who would they look to cheapshot next?


#2111421 And he does it again!

Funny stuff.

"Penguins fans complaining about Ovechkin's knee-on-knee hit against Gonchar and at the same time using it to sanction a knee-on-knee hit against Ovechkin by Cooke. Hypocrisy at its finest."


#2111244 Should Valtteri Filppula be traded?

Posted by titanium2 on 06 February 2011 - 02:58 AM

I stole this from RWC.--For once they had a genuine discussion thread that did not go off topic after the OP.

It's quite an interesting slew of comparative information in regards to Filppula in order "to get a better understanding of how exactly Filppula compares to second line centers across the league":

#2110317 2/4 GDT: Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 0

I got a question for everybody on here...

What a word that starts with an S and rhymes with Whutout?


#2109912 Did You Get Your Curly Fries?

Posted by titanium2 on 04 February 2011 - 12:43 PM

Mule isn't an Arby's fan or doesn't really jive well with the hockey player diet. Takes 1 bite and puts it back down. Next up, Hank for the hatty. I have one ready to toss on the ice for my favorite athlete. Good time for one tonight :thumbup:


Maybe if IKEA had a similar promotion of score a hat trick then get a free Swedish meatball meal then he'd scarf that baby down down down.


#2109568 Did You Get Your Curly Fries?

Posted by titanium2 on 03 February 2011 - 03:33 PM

I think this one might be my favorite Wings hat trick in the post lockout era.

All nice moves/plays involving Zetterberg. And look at him flash that smile at the very end. You could tell he had a lot of fun that night.

Nabokov is crying in his vodka tonite.


Duchene will drink it. For sure. And then play in the all star skills competition.

Apparently Rafalski got his 500th career point...

And yet the first thing I thought of was, "Does he have more career points or giveaways?"

You win the internet.


I do what I do when I need to do what I can do when I can do it.

Bunch of whiners in Ottawa


We would have done the same thing on here. In fact, we would've whined harder and better.


#2108516 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by titanium2 on 02 February 2011 - 04:04 PM

If you're Nabokov you gotta be thinking...

What should I do?
Should I admit the KHL was a mistake?
Should I not listen to my family? They're my family.
Should I have said the Islanders are a first class organization?
What should I do?
What should I do?
Maybe I should just retire.
Should I have told the Islanders to suck my wang?
Should I just say, "I am not a role model."?
Should I score another power play goal?
Should I go back to being "John"?
Should I admit I wasn't prepared for Team Canada?
Should I be who you want me to be?
What should I do?

#2107522 Weber and the Wings

Posted by titanium2 on 30 January 2011 - 11:56 PM

"He's obviously very special," said Weber, who had four assists and a strong case for the game's MVP, of Lidstrom. "He's one of the best defenseman, if not one of the best ever to play the game. It's definitely something I'll never forget. I watched him growing up and just being able to play in game with him is pretty cool."


The combination of Weber and Lidstrom was the latter's idea. Coach Peter Laviolette left it up to the 40-year-old Lidstrom to choose his partner before the game, and he went with the 25-year-old Weber.

"I talked to Peter before the game and he asked me if I had any requests and I said it'd be fun to play with Weber," Lidstrom said. "I just think he's a great young player. I think he's just going to get better and better. He's a great player as it is now.

"He's a division rival and you play against him so many times and I really like the way he plays, so I wanted to play with him and have a chance to play with a big guy like that."

I wonder what ASSets Carissa Thompson has that she was able to get that job.


Oh yeah... I went to a Lions game a couple years ago when she used to work for FOX NFL and sat front row right next to the Lions end zone. I don't really like football but I have to say that to watch her from behind as she walked was the only part of that afternoon that made the whole experience worth my time. Mm-mmm...
