Just imagine that this is another lockout.




#2366810 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Posted by P. Marlowe on 09 March 2013 - 03:45 AM

Why does the visor seem to be such a symbol of freedom for many here? Hockey is a game that already is full of rules of what to do and what equipment to use. Now all of a sudden they stop being grown men if the use of a visor isn't their decision anymore.

 

With all the neanderthal macho stuff that's involved in hockey shouldn't the debate be about cups being mandatory?

He's a very promising young player but still needs to work on his puck possession.




#2363107 Thoughts on the Blackhawks

Posted by P. Marlowe on 01 March 2013 - 01:19 AM

NHL.com:

 

ST. LOUIS -- Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford left the Blackhawks' game against the Blues on Thursday night after the first period with an undisclosed injury.

 

Crawford, who missed three games recently with an upper body injury, was replaced by Ray Emeryafter stopping all six shots he faced. The Blackhawks led 1-0 through one period.

Patrick Kane? I wouldn't give two cents for Kane. Give me Mount Zetter.


#2354176 Tomas Tatar Is Jiri Hudler 2.0

Posted by P. Marlowe on 11 February 2013 - 06:58 AM

I never saw Hudler being lazy. He was small and slow but still provided 20 goals and 50 points. To me that's very good secondary scoring. He knew he was going to get more money elsewhere and money's something many people in the world like so who can blame him. Hudler's efforts in 2nd and 3rd lines were very important during the fine seasons of 07-08 and 08-09. I wish people would give him more respect for that. But always the hooker and Russia things. It's like all the other hockey playesr were eunuchs who've promised poverty.

I also think it's too early to tell what'll become of Tatar and Nyquist. I wish Nyquist would get stronger. Then we'd probably see him up too perhaps permanently.

#2353018 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by P. Marlowe on 08 February 2013 - 06:04 PM

NHL doesn't suspend Franzén but instead chooses his hit from the previous Blues game as the number one hit of the week.




#2352899 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by P. Marlowe on 08 February 2013 - 10:34 AM

I can't take it seriously when words like "toughness" and "manliness" are mentioned when talking about hockey. It's a game after all and the players aren't facing any serious threats and struggles that most people do in their lives. Sure there are these unwritten rules (and millions of versions of them) by which Franzen should've acted here but what does that have to do with toughness? So he was pushed from behind in a hockey rink and what fans want him to do is to use his fists to hit the other player a few times in a seemingly menacing way but not seriously enough to kill the other player. "Hit the face not the testicles, use fists not stick, don't wear visor, don't wear gloves, don't celebrate afterwards if you've struck the other player down." It's a show and players are there to entertain. Being paid millions for playing hockey in America Is perhaps in the top 5% of the least toughness-requiring things in the world.

 

Don't get so upset when Franzen acts like an emotional man-child humanbeing they all are.




#2350429 Emmerton

Posted by P. Marlowe on 02 February 2013 - 02:39 PM

I must be the only one who liked what I saw from Chris Conner when he was here. 

 

Many people here liked him. He just went and signed to a team with a more probable roster spot for him.

 

I think Emmerton's been OK. He hasn't done much of anything but hasn't made many mistakes either. He provides nice depth since Wings seemingly has to have five regulars injured all the time. It's not much use now to talk about if he's lower in the depth chart than Miller, Eaves, Mursak and co. since Wings don't seem to ever be healthy enough to make it necessary to get rid of some of them.




#2350406 2/1 GDT : Blues 3 at Red Wings 5 (Z with Hat Trick)

Posted by P. Marlowe on 02 February 2013 - 01:25 PM

What I think is that refs were trying to give the game to Blues with that call. They knew that Wings PP is bad and killing a 5-minute penalty is a great confidence builder and a momentum shifter. Datsyuk just went and blew the refs' plan with that snipe.

If I was the Red Wings GM they would win the Stanley Cup every year.

Bettman can suck it, and I encourage everyone else to do the same!

 

Me too? That's rude.




#2340929 GM Ken Holland says Red Wings might not make playoffs this year

Posted by P. Marlowe on 17 January 2013 - 01:00 PM

I thought it was a possibility every season. Or did Wings have a guaranteed spot in the past? Oh well, fire Holland already. I think it's time. We have almost played one game this season.
