#2159444 (2) San Jose Sharks vs. (3) Detroit Red Wings

Posted by Jesusberg on 27 April 2011 - 05:06 PM

I'd view the Sharks as a rival, and perhaps even respect them if they weren't gifted the series. Having a 10-4 PP advantage in a single game is pretty ridiculous, if I remember correctly. Especially considering most of the calls were mediocre at best. I generally don't look for any team to be routed, but I hope Detroit absolutely embarrasses the Sharks to make up for last year.

Ray Shero must have nude pictures of Bryan Murray and Joe Nieuwendyk.

#2106817 All-Star Draft Discussion

Posted by Jesusberg on 28 January 2011 - 09:03 PM

Maybe it's just me, but Lidstrom's team is serious out-drafting Staal's.

Ward was picked too early, Marc Staal was picked too early... Lidstrom has far better defense, and has stacked at center. Lidstrom for the win.

#2103967 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Jesusberg on 23 January 2011 - 05:01 PM

Probably under the way the rules are written right now, you're right. I'm suggesting the rules need to be changed. Snow and his GM would have gained nothing, even if Nabby had decided to play. And the NHL needs to remove that piece of coal from up their asses before it turns into a diamond. ...Or maybe not... :ph34r:

With a team like the Isles, the only thing they would have gained is a whole lot of negative publicity, because they already suck and they're going nowhere and everyone understands they look like idiots, going for Nabokov. Nabby has every right to choose not to play for a team that could care less about what they really need or his well-being; or what that whole knee-jerk piece of s*** does to the NHL in the future. Fine, if it means he doesn't play this season, so be it.

But whether you agree or not, the rules on this kind of idiocy should be revised.

This is pretty much what I was saying from the outset. I can understand how teams could abuse the system, signing guys from other leagues without the waivers, but really it's not like they can super stack that much. I think a better idea would to give teams some kind of limit on the overseas players they can sign WITHOUT them having to go through waivers. Give each team a chance to maybe sign 2-3 guys from another league, then anyone after that should be subjected to the waivers rule.

I think something like that would still prevent teams from stacking themselves, and at the same time save the league and any bottom feeder teams this kind of embarrassment.

Bob Mackenzie just tweeted that he thinks the Isles are the favorite to claim Nabby.

Shut up Bob! Stop being so credible!

This is all just a big distraction. In reality, Holland is quietly snatching up Larsson while using Nabokov as a diversion... :ph34r:

#2096944 San Jose Sharks

It's because Bombay keeps telling District 5 to dive. They've got no heart!

But seriously, it's hard to gut stuff out when you just make excuses and play with no passion. Thornton's not about to start firing up anyone on the team. You need to lead by example, and he doesn't know how to.

#2086704 Zetterberg questionable, Rafalski game-time decision

Posted by Jesusberg on 29 December 2010 - 07:30 PM

Curious what they did to screw up both their backs only a few days apart...

There's every possibility that they both did it playing, but from my experience back problems occur more often when you are doing something new or different.

I wonder if they did some sorta different team event or drill that got both of them hurting...

Yes, it's called pin the tail on the Emma :hehe:

I really wish this was a joke. Brad Stuart... that's it. You're off my team on NHL 11, you jerk.

If Danny boy is injured, I'm trading Stuart on NHL 11. That's about as threatening as I can get...

#2084212 Frederick Meyer levels Milan Lucic

Posted by Jesusberg on 24 December 2010 - 11:57 AM

Meyer can sure hit for a smaller guy. He's a good depth defenseman, and if Atlanta's defense wasn't working out so well I'm sure he'd play more.

As much as I like Lucic, I HATE when brawls happen after a clean hit. It's one of the changes to the game that I really dislike.

#2080859 Chicago fans last night

Posted by Jesusberg on 18 December 2010 - 10:37 AM

That was seriously one of the most ridiculously displays I've ever seen. I understand that they heckle Detroit because they're like our jealous little brother, that's fine. What I don't understand is how they can boo a guy who was pretty much your best defenseman for 9 years. Is your hatred and envy for Detroit that strong? I seriously hope that one day Toews, Keith or Seabrook demand a trade, leaving their organization with a huge hole in it.

You're a bunch of spoiled brats throwing temper tantrums. You're a drunk prom date who can't hold her her liquor. You're that guy at the bar who gets kicked out because he keeps taking his shirt off. Now I'm a hypocrite because I've thrown a tantrum too, but I'm moving on like you guys should. Grow up Chicago fans.

#2075471 Mickey Redmond and Ken Daniels

Posted by Jesusberg on 10 December 2010 - 08:11 PM

Being as objective as I can, I've listened to lots of other broadcast teams. I get the NHL Centre Ice package, so I get to check out plenty of games. I think the biggest difference is that while the Redmond-Daniels combo clearly get excited when the Red Wings score, they don't constantly praise the team.

They spend a lot of time focusing on the opposing team, and they give credit where credit is due. When they see a bad penalty either way (esp Redmond) they really call it out. I don't think there's a more objective team in the league right now, although I do like the Rangers broadcast team as well.
