#1936598 Ovenchicken the real first to 50

I think Ryan Miller has the Hart and Vezina locked up.


I'm just not a fan of giving the Hart to a goalie unless he just has close to a record year. Miller deserves the Vezina, but I don't think he's been dominate enough to win a Hart like Hasek was.


#1936590 Evander Kane vs Matt Cooke

Posted by Carman on 10 April 2010 - 08:05 PM

Evander Kane just broke into my top 3 favorite players now.

Great stuff! :thumbup:


:edit ok no one can point to my reputation and say I'm a troll when I have posts like this marked down haha. Thanks for the attention though :cool:


#1936527 Alex Burrows doesn't like Detroit

Posted by Carman on 10 April 2010 - 05:40 PM

Any of you actually live in Detroit, in the city not the suburbs...I do and I don't like it. Once I get enough money I am out of this s***ty city. Love the Wings hate the city


Yep, I lived near West Chicago/Southfield until about 7 years ago. The whole area is just helpless and awful. I wouldn't wish anyone to live like that. Luckily the worst thing to happen to me was just a couple cars stolen and one armed robbery.


#1936384 Future stud for the Wings D?

Hopefully he can develop his defensive play a little smoother than Kindl.

But Brendan has all the physical tools to be a great NHLer definitely have high hopes for him.

I don't attempt to derail any thread or troll, everyone just assumes I'm trying to tie everything into Crosby.

This thread I originally posted a snide sarcastic comment that was supposed to point at how Backstrom and Semin are going under the radar when Backstrom is approaching 100 points for the first time in his career and Semin is putting up a crazy amount of goals as well.

After that post someone replied and said I called Ovechkin a piece of crap,I tried to clarify that I believe Ovechkin is clearly the best goal scorer in the league, and that my purpose was to call attention to Backstrom/Semin.

Then someone replied that Backstrom is getting credit and told me I'm wrong to say that Semin is playing with Ovechkin.

I reply that Semin is apart of 30% of Oveckin's points and use a tone similar to the one directed at me.

Then the troll card gets thrown at me and the thread is derailed.

Drake calls me jealous and then I try to talk about my position that Ovechkin's teammates hinder his value in my eyes compared to what another Hart trophy contender has to work with.

I would love to have well thought out posts to respond to and debate whether or not my perspective on a certain subject is skewed or not, it's just unfortunate that the maturity thrown back at me is at the stage of being called a "*****" or "troll" when I'm trying to do is discuss hockey.

Perhaps that would make more sense if this thread was actually about the Hart.


So I'm not allowed to discuss the Hart trophy in a thread about Ovechkin scoring 50 goals?


#1936203 Williams is lacking moxy

Posted by Carman on 10 April 2010 - 12:51 AM

We should just try and confuse the s*** out of everyone and send Lils out there on the PP.


Wouldn't be fair.

The intimidation factor with a man advantage is just simply cheating.

How did this become about Crosby again? Oh right, Carman has to bring him up in every damn thread.


Not every thread. But considering Crosby is competing with Ovechkin for the Rocket, Ross and Hart I wanted to give my two cents why Crosby will get the nod for Hart.

And what about all the goals he scored on s***ty Washington teams?

If you think Semin and Backstrom are carrying Ovechkin and not the other way around you're nuts.


Well I was being sarcastic when I said "carried". Obviously Ovechkin is the main cog in that machine.

When it comes down to who is more valuable, I just think Ovechkin has a major advantage in scoring by playing with elite offensive talent and system when Crosby has Guerin/Dupuis/Kuntiz and a injured Malkin on the PP all year.

I think he and Mindfly are in a competition for worst reputation.


Not even a competition. Which is insane considering mindfly actually posts negative things about the Red Wings.

Jealousy doesn't suit you Carman.


So you really think Guerin+Kunitz is better than Semin + Backstrom?

Come on Drake :scared:

This thread has nothing to do with that. It was created to acknowledge that Ovechkin got 50 goals. Way to hijack another one.


Hijack?

Since when is bringing up players on the same team as the player the thread is about hijacking?

A part of being a member of a forum is not being a troll.


So just because you disagree with me I'm a troll?

I'll gladly admit if I'm wrong.

But I really don't think the other great players on Washington get enough credit. Backstrom especially.


#1936091 Ovenchicken the real first to 50

Backstrom is getting his credit. Semin does not play with Ovechkin. A part of being a fan is to know your rival team well.


Semin has been involved on about 30% of Ovechkin's points.

A part of posting in a thread is knowing what you are trying to discuss.

Troll. Go away.

Yeah, leading the league in scoring and he's missed 10 games. What a piece of crap.


I didn't say he's a piece of crap. He's clearly the best goal scorer in the league.

I just don't think Backstrom/Semin get enough credit.
