  • 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

#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.


Sources, sources.

#2179026 Will Dan Markov have influence on Andre?

Posted by P. Marlowe on 24 May 2011 - 11:16 AM

What does Danny Markov have to do with this?

Other than sharing a last name and both being russian, I don't believe they are related.



Of course they are related. Haven't you heard how small of a place Russia is?


#2178009 In-depth interview with Ken Holland

Posted by P. Marlowe on 21 May 2011 - 06:46 PM

He's referencing Holland's wording "runner-up", which means 2nd place.



Whoops. Sorry, Mitchmac.

Unfortunately I don't have anything done fitting the latest topics, but I just wanted to dust off some old ones.

#2177901 Who has better future: Blues or Wings?

Posted by P. Marlowe on 21 May 2011 - 04:55 AM

I'm not a Nostradamus, but I think Hiei wrote some good points.

For the last few years Blues have been in a "bubble". They haven't made the playoffs, but they also haven't sucked enough to get the highest draft picks á la Penguins, Blackhawks and Capitals. If and when Blues rise to be a contender again they can be proud of doing it without getting Crosbys, Ovechkins and Kanes for free.
