#2449344 Varlamov Arrested

Posted by Electrophile on 31 October 2013 - 07:26 PM

I am definitely NOT excusing Varlamov if he actually did beat and kidnap his girl, but from the one story I have encountered first hand and others I have heard about over the years, most of these "kidnapping and assault" charges the cops conjure up are BS and not at all what the name of the charges would have you think.

 

 

The plural of anecdote is not data.  What happened to your friend is an absolute miscarriage of justice, but don't kid yourself into believing that what happened to him is the norm across the country, because it's not. 




#2448661 The most annoying things about being at games?

Posted by Electrophile on 29 October 2013 - 12:22 PM

The most annoying thing about going to a hockey game?  Drunks.  I get that people will have a beer or two during the game, and those aren't the people I'm talking about anyway.  I'm talking about the people who get absolutely wasted, then spend the entirety of the game screaming in the side of your head, flailing around like lunatics, and generally acting like assholes.  I've gone to several Hurricanes games with my sister and her boyfriend, and I'd say 2/3 of the time, all three of us had to deal with drunken fans causing us to not enjoy the game to the level that we otherwise would have. 

 

Look, if you can't go to a sporting event without getting completely sh*tfaced, stay home, watch the game on TV or your computer.  Save the money and the rest of us the indignity of having to listen to you (and smell you).




#2445312 10/17 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Avalanche 2

Worst Avs-player-on-Wings-player hit since the Laperierre-on-Lidstrom hit in '08.

 

I suppose it could only be coincidence that this hit happened in Patrick Roy's first game coaching against the Red Wings...  But that's an awfully big coincidence...

 

Well, if anyone thinks it's a coincidence, I've got a lovely oceanfront home in Kansas to sell them.  It's a steal!

That hit on Kronwall was very 90s-era Avs.  Someone should inform Patrick Roy the Douchebag King that the 90s are over, and that Claude Lemieux isn't their cheapshotting "enforcer" anymore.

 

Man, I've hated that turd for a long, long time.




#2442552 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by Electrophile on 07 October 2013 - 02:03 PM

It is just a matter of time before Bettman and company has ruined the game of hockey completely. They will not stop until hockey looks like figureskating.

 

Oh, knock it off with the useless hyperbole, would you?  If fighting ever disappeared from the game entirely, hockey would not look like figure skating, not even close.  The only thing the two activities have in common is they take place on skates.  That's it.

I'm listening to Pink Floyd this evening, so hopefully that provides the Wings that little extra bit of oomph they need to win the game.  Hopefully.

I'd really love it if we could oh I don't know, score another goal and pad the lead a bit.  I know that's fancy, edumacated thinkin' there, but I reckon it'll work.

While I'm glad we're getting off good shots and most importantly, winning the game at the moment, we're taking too many stupid penalties.

Edzo must have a Sasha Grey video cued up for commercial breaks if he's using phrases like "gaping hole."

Excellent 1st period, I do declare. Let's have two more just like that one.

I think we're going to really, really like the Wings in the Eastern Conference this season.

Brad Watson is officiating, so as myself and Edicius have come to an agreement on.....that's why this sucks.




#2365684 Holland says those dreaded words, "Our Deadline Addition"

Posted by Electrophile on 06 March 2013 - 09:46 AM

We need a new GM.  Kenny has done great things for us in the past, but we're not in the past anymore; we're in the present.  In the present, we're mediocre.  I don't like a mediocre Wings team.  I want a superb Wings team, and in order for that to happen, s*** needs to change.
