#2006671 Modano done in Dallas

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 29 June 2010 - 01:42 PM

I must admit I do not know anything about the Stars prospects and this is a new cap world but to me this is a slap in the face to Modano. Let him decide if this is it he has earned that right.

Totally agree. He's been with that franchise since they were the Minnesota North Stars. Could you imagine the Wings letting Yzerman go near the end of his career? Or the Avs letting Sakic go? Or the Rangers letting Messier go? All they had to do was sign him to a small deal and put him on the third line. There are certain players that have earned the right to decide when its time to end it. Modano has been the face of that franchise for 20 years, he's earned it.

Having said that, I would like to see him play a year in Detroit.

Pittsburgh twice again? For a third straight year? Really?????

Enough already, the NHL has got to stop it with this Detroit-Pittsburgh crap.

Its a rivalry, so they have to keep it going somehow. Besides, watching Crosby act like a spoiled brat when the Wings beat him is good entertainment.

I might have to jump on the Lightzerman bandwagon.

Ha! Lightzerman... I like it :thumbup:

This will look good in my Red Wings mancave that I'm in the process of building :cool:

#1995812 Stanley Cup Finals eeriy similar to 2009

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 07 June 2010 - 11:38 AM

1) Features a team from the Midwest against a team from Pennsylvania.

2) Also features an extremely overrated player heralded to be something he is not (Crosby:Gretzky Toews::Yzerman)

3) Home team goes up 2-0 despite being outplayed

4) Home team has held serve up until this point

5) Both game 5's resulted in blowouts for the home team

We were outplayed in the first two games? We were outshot by a little, but won those games by a total of 6-2.

and in both, the Pennsylvania team is filled with d-bags...


#1992371 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

For all those people that are complaining about the pay cut wasn't enough, let me see you guys take a pay cut from your jobs.

I'm just happy he's coming back and don't really care too much about the cap hit, but telling someone who has close to $100 million dollars to take a pay cut vs someone who won't make $1 million in their lifetime to take a pay cut is just a little different.

#1992361 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 01 June 2010 - 12:02 PM

How does that logic work???

We're getting the best defenseman in the game back for another year and he's playing for more than 5 cents! Geez, do I have to draw you a diagram? :D

#1989435 Steve Yzerman named TB's new GM

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 25 May 2010 - 11:00 AM

I REALLY hate to see Stevie go, but he has a lot of good young players to start off with, he gets to pick his own coach, and he gets to live it up in Florida. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal. There's no question who my second favorite team is now.

On a somewhat related note, isn't it ironic that he went to the Lightning? The Wings are red/white, the Lightning are blue/black (the exact opposite colors). His best player has the same first name (except he's called Steven, not Steve or Stevie) and has the same two numbers, except in reverse (91). Its like Yzerman went to the bizarro Wings. :D

#1983434 ECSF Game 6

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 11 May 2010 - 11:39 AM

Either way, I'm proud of the Pens. We play hard, we do contracts correctly. We might lose in seven to a team that also upset the President's Trophy winners, but at least we didn't lose in 5 to the biggest choke-artists of all time.

Wait a minute... two weeks ago you guys were laughing "Ohhhhh the Caps choked!! They lost to the 8th seed how pathetic!" Now you guys are in a Game 7 with that same 8th seed and you're "proud of the Pens". We lost to the #1 seed in the West, a team loaded with superstars. You're in a dogfight with a team that finished with the 18th best record in the league and has played the entire series without their best defenseman and now their second best is injured too.

Hilarious. Ovehckin puts 10pts up in 7 games against the Habs and people call him a choker. Crosby puts 5pts up in 6 games and he's still the anointed one. :lol:

Lets not forget that two of those points and his only goal of the series came with the Habs two best defensemen out of the lineup.

#1981915 San Jose to Finals?

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 09 May 2010 - 07:51 AM

I'd like to see Todd Mclellan win it. Though the thought of Hossa finally beating Pittsburgh in the Finals has a certain appeal to it.

#1968858 Staal out "indefinitely" after Tendon surgery

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 01 May 2010 - 01:23 PM

...its nice to see the Pens get a set back like the Wings did all season.

Yeah, now they'll just destroy the Habs rather than cremating them.

I like the fact that "Goal" in French is "But".

When Crosby scores it'll be a But for an ass. :D
