Ericsson sucks.

The fight took place directly above the injured player. This drives me nuts.

Also, the title of your thread is very incorrect and should be changed.

I'm subscribed to this guy and it's pretty neat to watch five minutes and 21 seconds of awesomeness.

#2231907 Crosby is like who?

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 02 December 2011 - 04:25 PM

goal + assist + crying to draw a penalty = Crosby hat-trick.


#2231846 Crosby is like who?

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 02 December 2011 - 11:41 AM

I saw the highlights from last night. Crosby got an elbow under the chin in a scrum at the side of the net. Right away he looked at the ref wanting a penalty. Wuss! Howe would just hit the guy back later in the game.

The refs need to protect him. We'll be denied his greatness if he re-strains his ****** and is out another 8 months.

My dad's boss gave him tickets to this, so my dad and I will be in section 117, 5TH ROW BABY!

Foligno wouldn't have had a chance to get a fight in. Not if Kunitz is playing babysitter the way he did on that scrum.

Yup, that and Crosby actually hid behind his GOALIE after starting the scrum.

Seriously? That's a scrum in front of the net. They happen every night.

Seriously? Butt-ending someone in their face happens every night? I don't think so.

Being a Holmstrom fan I've naturally spent a lot of time watching my favorite player get the s*** beat out of him every night. I remember thousands of cross-checks. However, I can't recall any butt-ending Holmstrom in the face and then hiding being their goaltender so they don't get hurt.

If Sean Avery butt-ends someone in the face, he gets suspended. But if Crosby does it, the NHL looks the other way.

It just goes to prove more and more that Crosby is a little brat.

Meh, that happens to Holmstrom and Franzen every game when they are in front of the net. Much ado about nothing, but I guess as long as we can bash Crosby we might as well.

Butt-end to the face? I don't think so.

#2230299 Patrick Eaves injury

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 26 November 2011 - 10:16 PM

It was a weird injury. At first he was down on his hands and knees as he reached up to grab his ear. But after about a second or two he passed out and "star-fished" on the ice. It looked like he was out cold for about 5-10 seconds. Then he came to and kept kicking his legs.

The player that shot the puck was 21 year old rookie Roman Josi. Josi was quite the class act, he went over to Eaves as he laid on the ice and he also went over to Eaves as they roll him off the ice and gave a stick-tap to the stretcher. Josi looked like he was going to throw up, he felt so badly about accidentally injuring Eaves.

I hope Eaves is alright.

I'm not hugely impressed. Also, both of Sidney's goals were easily stoppable by an experienced goalie.

As opposed to Zetterberg and Datsyuk, who this season seem to be easily stopped by ANY goalie.

Not saying they suck, they're just having some BAD LUCK!

#2228344 Crosby coming back

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 21 November 2011 - 12:03 PM

Not sure what the sense of aentitlement commen is about though, but I'm assuming it's just a fun throw in that can't really be backed up, but hey...why not.

What the video I posted. You'll see a spoiled, entitled, pampered, little brat of a child throwing a temper tantrum because he lost.

Have you ever scene Yzerman, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, or Lidstrom go after a guy at the end of a game out of frustration? Never.

No one denies his talent, but he's not half the man of a Yzerman, Lidstrom, Gretzky, Messier, or any of the other great captains.

#2228312 Do They Deserve It?

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 21 November 2011 - 08:48 AM

I'm a huge Holmstrom fan. But I've got to admit, he's simply not effective anymore. He creates too many penalties and called back goals. He's slow. He's got bricks for hands.

While I've always had a special place in my heart for Homer, I'd just rather see a young guy step up that can contribute in front of the net, but also in other ways as well.

As for Bertuzzi, I think he's still a 2nd\3rd line guy. I'd like to see us keep him around for at least this season.

I'd love to see Ericsson go. He sucks. The only thing I like about him is that he's the only one willing to fight for the team, but other than that he is just plain our worst defenseman.

Even as an Ovie fan, I'll fully acknowledge that he can be a tool. He can be way too cocky at times, but on the other hand, you can really see his genuine love for the game and pure, unbridled excitement when he plays.

Hadn't heard negative things about Miller though, figured he was a nice guy.

Oddly enough, I have both an Ovie and Miller jersey.

I like Ovi too. Yeah, he can be cocky and sometimes have touchdown celebrations after goals, but he's just genuinely excited about the game. He's not a whiner. He's not a diver. He's a two-way player. He has no sense of entitlement.

I don't know much about Miller (since the Eastern conference only exists to us if we go to the finals). The only thing I do remember is that he accidentally hit a photographer with the puck through a camera-hole in the boards. He went over to make sure the guy was OK. After the game he gave the guy his goalie stick. So in my mind this Miller guy seems to be a class-act.
