#1927924 Food for Thought...

I know why. He wants to move them up north.

Which would be a good thing because then the rest of the league could stop babysitting one more franchise. Those franchises aren't fooling anyone... they are not profitable. If the NHL ever wants to stop being a Mickey Mouse league they need to first admit that they are... like how alcoholics need to first admit they have a problem before they recover.

While it's a topic of discussion:
I think Balsille is an ideal owner for an NHL franchise. He has bottomless pockets, loves the game and a proper business sense.. something that got him in trouble when he approached the Phoenix situation somewhat underhanded. I just can't believe that guy doesn't own Nashville, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Atlanta, Columbus or one of the Floridian franchises yet.

Yet you love Crosby? I'm not one to say that Crosby is not talented, he is exceedingly talented BUT in my mind there is doubt he is a whiner. Remember when he asked the refs to make an announcement for people to stop throwing hats onto the ice after Ovechkin's goal?

Unnecessary. I realize Carman likes Crosby.. lots of people do.. some of my best friends do. I don't however feel the need to obsess with their interest or piss on Crosby when it isn't warranted or when his name is absent from the conversation at hand.

Wish Kalinka still layed for Dats.

Uprising - Muse (is a staple now)

Inavders Must Die - Prodigy (the coda is played when a shootout is being prepared)

#1921403 Zetterberg needs to step it up

Posted by BlakKy on 22 March 2010 - 01:00 AM

Zetterberg isn't on pace for anymore assists than he has been getting the past few years. He just isn't on pace for 35-40 goals. Tough year with injuries, not only his own, but those of his linemates. Datsyuk always gets to play with the other top forwards, Z gets the leftovers.

As far as 'Z playign with leftovers' is concerned:
I'd say Z is more suited to playing with more, how should we say 'average' linemates as he is the type of guy who despite scoring less than he shoud is the more consistent of the Euro Twins. Z might be hurt and tired but it does still look like a concerted effort is given when humanly possible. Case in point is his great PK numbers and better PPG vs. Datsyuk this season.
