#2628290 Crosby says Zetterberg most competitive player he ever faced as pro

Posted by number9 on 04 October 2015 - 07:13 PM

Not a surprise to us RW fans. Z is an average athlete with great heart/comtete levels which is what has made him a star.

#2627582 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by Nightfall on 28 September 2015 - 10:35 AM


Let's wait for the justice system to rule out what happened before we assume she's just after a pay cheque.


I am not assuming anything at this point.  Presenting a video where professional athletes have went broke for various reasons, including being taken advantage of, isn't bias.  So far, there is no proof of innocence or guilt.  Either way, I hope the truth comes out for the sake of the NHL and hockey and Kane is either exonerated or put in jail accordingly.

Are you kidding? Jurco was one of the better players in that game against Chicago. He was a huge reason for 2 of the 3 goals that Tatar scored. On the first one he drove the middle, allowing Tatar and Sheahan to cross, and continued to the net, doing exactly what he needs to do for that line. On Tatar's third goal, he dug the puck out of the corner, and gave it to Richards which started the breakout for the eventual empty netter. He also drew two penalties by providing speed and keeping his feet moving. What exactly did Franzen do in his first game to get his opportunity on that line?... I'm not saying he was bad, but Jurco was really good with them, why change it?

Because it is pre season and Blash is new to head coaching some of these guys and he wants to see for himself who has chemistry with who?

Let me reinforce the word preseason and it is considered practice

Hell, have you ever seen the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary "Broke"?  Many professional athletes have been targeted by people who want nothing more than to get a piece of their bank.  If that is what is happening here with Kane, then he should consider himself lucky if he isn't prosecuted or found not guilty.  This woman probably saw a mark and is trying to extort money from him.  Heck, just like the 18 year old model who tried to extort a couple hundred grand from Jagr, these cases are not isolated.
He should be very wary now that he signed that insane deal.


That model tried to extort $2,000 from jagr not a couple hundred grand

It's seeming like the case will be dropped and we'll never know what actually happened.

If that's the case, i will take the very unpopular amongst the masses decision and default to him being innocent.

I still will never like him, and even less so now, but I can't in good judgement consider him a rapist unless it's proven betond a reasonable doubt.

*sigh* His troubled career continues

God its weird seeing the guys smiling and joking on the bench, and the coach being in on it.
Athanasiou hasn't been too great today either.

Miller Andersson Ferraro is our slowest line tonight.
By a country mile.
Watching the rest of the team go, then that line comes on and looks like the ice is pouridge

I am gonna do my best to give Howard the respect he has earned tonight. That being said, if he gives up all those goals again in just half a game, I will call him a ninny-poop and kindly ask that he be removed from the game.

Nervous/excited for Franzen's return.


I still think he's going to come back with long hair and facepaint, like Sting, and be a total enigma.  Would be funny.  He will become our avenger.  

#2627043 Gordie Howe looked great last night!

After reading about that last year I emailed the company, but they do not yet have a process for ALS patients. Even in the face of death, Gordie is still inspiring . GORDIE!

Lol wait, so it's not okay to change your mind about pairings? Or are we saying it's not okay to pre-judge lines and flip flop.


I think half of us have changed our mind about pairings after seeing things not workout?

Howard might lose the backup job to McCollum.
