#2234922 Jimmy Howard eyes spot in NHL All-Star game

Posted by Jasper84 on 11 December 2011 - 05:52 PM

I'll probably get 'negged for this, but I feel bad for the guy. Doesn't get recognized by the NHL as an all-star caliber goalie and then he has his own fanbase deciding that he needs to rest rather than be an all-star. While I agree that he could use the rest, I think he's still young enough to be given an opportunity to enjoy himself at an all-star event and not effect his game in a negative way. Based on that link above, he seems pretty excited at the opportunity and his friends (I will go ahead and assume family too) sound just as excited as he is. Yet here we are, from the couches in our living room, deciding that he needs to rest rather than having an opportunity at a fun weekend :thumbup: .

I voted for him.

Okay, that does it Howie. I'm going to pick up your jersey tomorrow.

This guy subbing in for Ken got a little too excited for that Blue's goal

Helm never takes a shift off. I hope this kid stays a Wing for life.

#2227915 Crosby coming back

Don't care for the guy, but I also wouldn't want to see anyone end their career like that. Good for him for being able to come back to this great game

The last 15 seconds of the game they play like they kind of want to win. What about the rest of the game? Something needs to change.

Off topic, but deserves a mention. Tigers take a 2-0 lead

#2212615 Caps, Pens schedule benefit

Posted by Jasper84 on 06 October 2011 - 10:42 AM

If what I think is happening than I'm disgusted to see this. The Benefit is Fantastic and that's not what I'm upset about; but WHY is it the Pens and Caps doing this. Something tells me that Bettman set this up to make these two teams look this classy. It just so happens that it's Crosby's and Ovechkin's Teams that are doing this. How many players on the plane actually played on the Pens or Caps team?? 3 Former Red Wings died on the plane and yes the Wings went to the Funeral but why aren't they doing something like that. That's more of a thing that I would imagine that Mr. Illitch would set up with the Wings since I truly believe that he is a classy guy. I hope I'm wrong and if I am I'll eat Crow but it just makes me believe that it wasn't truly the idea of these two teams to do this and that there is a mastermind behind it. I know the plane crash did have an effect on Ovechkin at least that's what I heard but it just smells a little fishy to me to make Crosby and Ovechkin and their teams out to be the good guys. If something is going to be done it should envolve the entire NHL. If I'm out of line I apologize.

If it makes you feel any better, the wings are wearing a patch in honor of the three lost ex-Red Wings.

#2196868 Is there a problem with Babs?

Posted by Jasper84 on 06 July 2011 - 12:02 PM

Yes, I would trust this much more than someone saying "a buddy of mine said" without having specifics on where it's coming from. Without sighting sources, that's as good as me saying that a buddy of mine told me that ex-players are bad mouthing Babs for his penchant for wearing a pink tutu & tiara in the locker room before games.

Thats great that you trust that more, I would too if I was in your shoes. But again, I did not post this to make anyone believe anything, I did not mention any player names. I simply asked a question wanting to know if anyone else has ever heard of anything like what I had just learned, which I have said several times in this thread already.

If I was making this post to make Babs sound like a bad coach or whatever it is that a few of you keep thinking by asking for a source, then I would have mentioned the players but I did not because that's not what I was doing and the player's names do not matter, so my source does not matter.

I never start threads on this forum because of this reason here, there is always people that have a complaint even though my post was just a question I had our of curiosity. After getting a bunch of minuses, having at least three people in the thread complain about what I say and on top of that have a few people send me private messages arguing with me about me HAVING to tell them my source, I regret ever asking this question and if I knew a way to get my thread deleted completely to avoid all this, I would.

This thread should be moved to rumor mill. There is no credibility here what-so-ever....

Move it wherever you'd like. Delete it completely if it's such a big deal. I didn't mention any player's names nor did I try to force anyone to believe anything. I asked a simple question based on what I learned today. I don't see how a question would be considered a rumor.

#2196548 Is there a problem with Babs?

Posted by Jasper84 on 05 July 2011 - 03:17 PM

My first question would be what your friend's source is.

Not to be rude, but would giving you my friend's source really matter in this topic, when I am just asking a simple question out of curiosity?

Has anyone else heard anything about players not liking Babs?

#2196538 Is there a problem with Babs?

Posted by Jasper84 on 05 July 2011 - 03:07 PM

So I was talking with a buddy of mine today and he was telling me how the Wings contacted a few players and they refused to talk about coming to the Wings because of Babcock. Apparently, some ex-players of Babcock (including ex-Wings, not just his previous teams) have been bad mouthing him.

I've always liked Babs as a coach and have considered him one of the best. But now after hearing this, it makes me wonder if there is problems with Babs and players? We know that he and Commie don't get along, but now that I hear some other players refused to sign here because of him really makes me wonder.

Has anyone else heard anything about players not liking Babs?

What makes losses more frustrating is trolls like this that show up only for times like this:

series OVER.

I wish people who come to this site just to troll and get under peoples skins would just be removed. This isn't a fan.

Wouldn't it be better to be honest and say "I came here to advertise my online tshirt store", rather than lying about it and saying you found it online? :unsure:

Personally, I wouldn't trust a business who's dishonest right off the start, but thats just me.
