#2195368 Wings sign D Ian White to 2-year, $5.75m contract

So now we have two new handsome Canadian defensemen who can hit and fight. *drool*

I personally will not say how good or bad this was until they hit the ice.



Young man, that kinda attitude is not tolerated here.


#2194639 Wiz is a dick.

Posted by P. Marlowe on 01 July 2011 - 05:44 PM

Your point?



...is of course that Wiz's comment is a very weak reason for him to be the "public enemy number 1".


#2194626 Wiz is a dick.

Posted by P. Marlowe on 01 July 2011 - 05:36 PM

Public enemy #1 in my book, can't wait to boo his punk ass.



Oh come on. We can do better than that. We used to hate Claude Lemieux, remember?


#2194279 Wings sign D Mike Commodore to 1-year, $1m contract

Posted by P. Marlowe on 01 July 2011 - 02:30 PM

I'm usually cool as hell, but this signing made even my eyebrows rise for two seconds.

When I think about Commodore I think about this:



First he misses a check and flies into the bench. Then he loses his composure and goes after Franzén while he could've done something to prevent Wings' goal.

I predict that today no one panics at LGW.

Oh and Edmonton signs Vokoun.


#2189928 Babcock "pissed off" about Burns-to-SJ

Posted by P. Marlowe on 26 June 2011 - 07:56 AM

There are 29 other teams in the league. Just like Wings can't win the Cup every year Holland can't get every player that seems suitable.

Don't believe Eva when he tells you we already have that in Hudler.


I dunno. With enough stats I could be convinced. You know, +/- is overrated and stuff.


#2189744 2011 NHL Draft: Rounds 2-7 Discussion

Posted by P. Marlowe on 25 June 2011 - 01:45 PM

I wasn't really following. Did Wings draft anyone like this:
  • Height 5'7
  • Weight 250
  • Born in Sweden
  • Grew up at a farm in Ontario
  • First name Björn or Håkan
  • Last name Smith or Jones
  • Right hand shot
  • Dekes and fights
  • A natural sniper
  • Can be a top 6 forward and a top 4 defenceman at the same time
  • Atheist
  • Quote: "My main goal in life is to please everyone."
?


#2189621 Babcock "pissed off" about Burns-to-SJ

Posted by P. Marlowe on 25 June 2011 - 11:52 AM

Can't Babcock be pissed off without blaming Holland? I'm reading this that Babcock is angry because of all teams it had to be Sharks who got Burns.

The Globe and Mail: The sad, painful truth about the Vancouver rioters’ true identities

While police and politicians continue to lay the blame for this week’s Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver on professional anarchists and hardened thugs with deep-seated criminal tendencies, the blogosphere and social networks such as Facebook have been revealing a much more uncomfortable truth.

Many of those who participated in the riot were not these types of people at all. They were, in many instances, the sons and daughters of good, upstanding citizens who today must still be in shock over what they’ve learned.

(...)

The fact is, it’s easier to blame hooligans and professional nihilists for what happened than confront the more disturbing possibility that under unique conditions that wonderful teenaged boy who lives next door is capable of coming unglued.




#2186304 Epic Boooing of Bettman

Posted by P. Marlowe on 16 June 2011 - 08:23 PM

I felt bad for him. I don't care if someone dislikes the way he does his job, but booing him like that... Gets too personal.

Like someone said on the other thread: the Cup presentation isn't about Bettman, it's about the Cup and the winning team.

They're feeding the fire with trash. Wait, is that Torres?

It's great what Canuck fans are doing, sticking around, cheering their team, cheering Thomas, chanting: "Go Nuck Go" and "Stanley Cup, Stanley Cup". I remember in 2009 when Joe Louis was mostly empty while Pens celebrated.


#2185419 Janne Lahti

Posted by P. Marlowe on 15 June 2011 - 12:11 PM

I think that's a bit of a strech. I don't see him causing issues in Philly. Just cause he didn't want to stay in the AHL, doesn't make him a prima donna. He performed well as a recruit, and didn't fit in as a regular player. We also needed to cut someone from the roster at the time. Pretty simple.


I agree. He's much like Hudler - not very useful as a bottom six forward, but good in a same line with top forwards. Wings didn't have space for him, Flyers did.



Leino likes Philly because he has more freedom there. Apparently Babcock had too much structure for his liking. :lol:

So yes, I would call that prima donna behavior.
