#2470932 World Juniors Tourney Thread

Posted by Finnish Wing on 05 January 2014 - 03:12 PM

Chill dude. The Finns have been on the defensive since the 1-0 goal. It's a dangerous tactic and it could end up costing them the win. None of the calls have been bad, they've just been a result of playing all game in the defensive zone, it's kind of amazing the Finns have been able to play defense as cleanly as they have, or rather the Swedes have been bad at forcing them to take more penalties. 

I already explained it all to you.

 

Yes, usually if you play turtle D you end up losing the game. That doesn't make an excuse for the reffing to make up calls.

 

5-minute major, yup, they didn't see it obviously. Is it good reffing when you make calls out of thin air after that?

Honestly, who would want to pick him up?

Islanders of course.




#2339141 What Are You Playing?

Completely agree about the KotOR 3 thing. Money talks, too bad.




#2295137 So Who Do You Cheer For Now?

Posted by Finnish Wing on 21 April 2012 - 10:37 AM

Predators for me. I already said after the trade deadline that this could be their year.


#2272952 Radulov Returns

Posted by Finnish Wing on 22 March 2012 - 12:19 PM

Most of the players on the team have never played with this guy.

Now someone is losing a roster spot over a player who's not even a true team player, who may not be back after the season.

I know it's a business, but I bet there's a lot of angry players in the Nashville locker room.

Same thing with Quincey when he was acquired at the deadline then? I bet there's a lot of angry players in the Detroit locker room.

7th rounder for Nitty.


#2243419 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by Finnish Wing on 09 January 2012 - 03:52 AM

Don't care what Salo was TRYING to do. The fact is that kinda play by Marchand can end careers near the boards.

Fact? Tell me one Stanley Cup they won without one?

That doesn't mean there has to be a correlation.


#2237126 Is Minnesota for real?

Posted by Finnish Wing on 18 December 2011 - 08:56 PM

No credit to Yeo? Seems like it's really true that there is no actual coaching culture in the NHL and everything is just measuring player's point totals and seeing which team has the best star players.

Coaching has a pretty big part in the game of hockey as well, you know.


#2225501 GMs to discuss the 1-3-1 forecheck

Posted by Finnish Wing on 15 November 2011 - 11:56 AM

There's no problem in traps. They can be beat and everyone can use them. The problem was Flyers not trying to attack. It's the responsibility of the team who has the puck to keep the game going, try to score. Other team tries to prevent the scoring.

Other team doesn't have to try to take the puck back. Most important priority is to prevent scoring, not to take the puck back. So don't gimme that argument, ok?


#2204003 Rick Rypien found dead

Posted by Finnish Wing on 16 August 2011 - 12:43 PM

What the hell do steroids have to do with Rypien? Or for that matter, Luc Bourdon dying in a motorcycle accident?

Not directly, necessarily. Rypien has to do with the unexpected deaths lately. And the unexpected death's have to do with steroids etc.

Not the best direction in which to direct this thread.

I didn't know this was a "R.I.P thread" in the Water cooler. I thought you are supposed to actually discuss in the General discussion section. My bad.


#2203993 Rick Rypien found dead

What the hell is it with hockey players passing away as of late? Far too young, so unfortunate and sad. In the last few years we've lost Sergei Zholtok, Dan Snyder, Aelx Cherepanov, Luc Bourdon, Mandi Schwartz, Derek Boogaard, and now Rick Rypien.

Steroids and other that kinda stuff that doesn't belong in the human body. The leagues just don't want to talk about it because it would look bad from a marketing perspective.


#2201038 Report: Gary Bettman makes $7.5M

Terrible overpayment.


#2199325 Nice Article on Datsyuk's Hometown Hockey camp.

LOL. "The North American style - the positive and fun style!"

Looks like the Cold War is still alive and well.


#2194546 Buffalo signs Ville Leino to 6-year, 27m contract

Posted by Finnish Wing on 01 July 2011 - 04:20 PM

Wonder how good he'll be without Briere and Hartnell.

Wonder how good they'll be without him. They pretty much got it going instantly when Leino was put on to that line.
