#2247848 Bruins Fan Shoves Lightning Mascot

Hopefully, whoever that retard playing the "mascot" was got their ass fired for that bulls*** stunt.


You spray someone you don't know (or even someone you do know) in the eye with some s***, you should fully expect to get hit for it. This isn't some 1965 hippy commune, its the real world.


It's also not the Thunderdome. Lighten up, Francis.


#2243774 Cherry rips Holland

There's no doubting you've made some very valid points - hoewever IMO with this current roster we will continue to have trouble in a best of 7 series against teams that we will likely face in the 2nd round of the playoffs (think Sharks, Canucks, or even the Blackhawks).

I guess I'm spoiled, and want to see a carbon copy of our 1997 roster, or for that matter a carbon copy of the 2011 Boston Bruins.



You are spoiled but who even does carbon copying anymore?


#2239811 12/30 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blackhawks 3

Posted by mjlegend on 30 December 2011 - 12:27 PM

Apparently Kane is moving back to center for this game. There's gotta be a way for Pav or Z to exploit that.


They can pretend they're cab drivers and withhold 15 cents from him. He'd probably flip out and give the Wings a lengthy power play.

#2233218 Miller Ran again

Posted by mjlegend on 06 December 2011 - 11:34 AM

he didn't get a concussion form the lucic hit, there is no way, if it did happen it was after, and lately they have changed it to concussion like symptoms, since a concussion in the nhl relates to a headache, concussion like symptoms must be like saying you had a headache but you didn't really you just wanted to make a point.




Yeah, Hmmm. How would he have picked up a neck injury/headaches in a hit like the one from Lucic? Is a professional, high-level athlete fighting tooth and nail for the playoffs going to fake something for seven games because he wants someone suspended?

He had headaches and an extremely sore neck. From the Lucic hit. Only seven months after concussions kept him from games late last year. He missed seven games with these symptoms because he needed to grow a pair?


#2232868 Miller Ran again

Posted by mjlegend on 05 December 2011 - 12:27 AM

because of this play and his play against lucic, i mean common, grow af****** set. I never used to dislike him.



Yeah, concussions are for *******! :rolleyes:


#2231866 Bobby Ryan/Jarome Iginla watch

Posted by mjlegend on 02 December 2011 - 01:13 PM

Be upset all you want about someone mentioning Franzen, but he is just too inconsistent for my liking. Bobby Ryan and Jerome Iginla are waaaaaaay better than Franzen. You guys want to improve this team but you only want to offer scrubs that nobody wants. It takes talent to acquire talent. Hudler isn't gonna bring us anything, Miller isn't either. Holland tried trading Hudler all summer and nobody wanted him with all his "potential." He has worse value now. You have to trade someone unless you are perfectly fine with Franzen scoring 20 points in 10 games then disappearing for 20, then scoring 20 more in 15, then disappearing for the rest of the season and playoffs.


Er, Franzen doesn't exactly disappear in the playoffs.

I agree with you on a lot of this, but Bobby Ryan's inconsistency is what has brought up all the rumours to begin with. Even last year, he had a five-game pointless drought where Franzen's longest drought was four. Ryan this year has already had two four-game pointless slumps and a three gamer, while Franzen had a six-gamer, but nothing else over two.

Last year, Franzen had a six-game point streak and a five, while Ryan had two fives and a four. This year, Franzen has three four-game streaks already while Ryan has only had a three.

I don't see it but they both certainly played with an Edge.


#2230543 Caps Fire Bruce Boudreau

surprised it didnt happen sooner. how do you have a team with that much talent and win nothing!


When you find out, let Doug Wilson know.


#2228336 Crosby coming back

Posted by mjlegend on 21 November 2011 - 11:07 AM

Let's take a step back for a minute. Things might not be as they appear

http://penguins.nhl.com/

Clearly, they're welcoming back Sid (Your Show of Shows) Caesar from retirement. Hello, coach Calhoun!


can't wait for a new Eric Lindros game to start. The first was David Steckel. Who is next? I think Clarkson this season.


One of Ken Hitchcock's henchmen will make him bleed Wednesday. Chris Stewart, do your job.

He's more likely to star in a remake of West Side Story, but good luck with the effort dude.


#2225521 GMs to discuss the 1-3-1 forecheck

Posted by mjlegend on 15 November 2011 - 12:56 PM

I initially thought this as well, but since then I've reconsidered. The goal above anything else is to win. If the Flyers think that attacking a trapping team is going to hurt their chances of winning (which it sometimes does), and if they also think that waiting will pull the Bolts out of their trap (which it did), then I don't see why they shouldn't wait; waiting for the opportunity for your attack to be effective seems like a good strategy to me.

If this sort of thing became an epidemic in the NHL then something would have to be done, but it really wasn't that big of a deal in the game it happened in. My guess is that the GMs don't do anything about this.


It was still a 2-1 game the Flyers lost. I would say they still need some work on trying to break it. I mean, there's waiting for an opportunity and wasting a minute of game time while you try to make an argument.

It reminded me of Monty Python's Greece-Germany philosopher's soccer game:

#2225231 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by mjlegend on 13 November 2011 - 10:12 PM

The rulebook doesn't allow goaltenders to be hit. Period, full stop. Inna da crease, outta da crease, doesn't matter. Lucic made full body contact with a netminder, and

I don't know what the new precedent is, but concussing a goaltender on a hit should get SOMETHING.
