#2500502 Pens Twitter Fail:Ask Neal Anything...

OMG how did I miss out on this? *bangs head on desk*


Why bang your own head when you could get Neal to do it for you?

#2500493 Pens Twitter Fail:Ask Neal Anything...

Posted by Son of a Wing on 24 March 2014 - 05:31 PM

So today via Twitter The Penguins asked fans to submit questions for James Neal.


Hilarity ensues...


Some examples...


Flyers Nation ‏@FlyersNation  3h
James, do you get the biggest thrill out of kneeing someone in the head or cross checking them in the head? #AskNeal


John Forsyth ‏@blackbear93  1h
#askneal if you could go back in time and end the career of any player in NHL history who would you choose?


Steph ‏@myregularface  1h
Is it more rewarding to score a goal or concuss another human? #AskNeal


Greg ‏@GDubs10  2h
. @penguins Hey James, long time fan first time tweeter. What's your favorite hockey play? The Flying V or the Flying Elbow? #askneal


Jeff Mehmel ‏@ThaBKeeper  2h
Have you ever cross checked or kneed your grandma in the head?  Stupid question.  Of course you have, you're James Neal #askneal @penguins


Steph ‏@myregularface  2h
If you could have any super power, how would you use it to hit opponents in the head? #askneal


Mike From Attleboro ‏@MikeFromATown  2h
How does one go about playing as dirty as you do while fighting less than the Swiss? #AskNeal


Steph ‏@myregularface  2h
If Crosby wasn't your teammate, would you try to knee him in the head or use a different body part to contact his head? #askneal

#2486880 Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

Moore better settle, he won't win, he's asking way too much money. I think he has Damien Brunners agent as a lawyer.

#2464714 Jurco Called Up

Posted by Jedi on 15 December 2013 - 12:57 AM

Let's all remember that Sammy was scratched tonight...

...and Jurco's getting called up...

..which means Sammy is likely still scratched...

...perhaps we're seeing Holland/Babs make a little bit of sense here!

#2455006 Today's Chuckle - NHL selling team Snuggies

Posted by 55fan on 18 November 2013 - 01:13 PM

When will the NHL® Official 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® version be available?

You missed it.  It was the Limited Edition NHL® Official 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® presented by Amway, General Electric, McDonald's, and Edna's Yam Emporium Snuggie.


It was only available on websites that you don't get, but because you live in an area which the NHL® says is supposed to get them, are blacked out because of contractual obligations.  The NHL® suggests that you pay them hundreds of dollars to get these websites, at which time they will allow you to read the fine print informing you that you can not get these websites. 


The NHL® apologizes for the inconvenience, and will now lock out the players to negotiate this problem because the NHL® loves you, because you are the Best Fans in the World™.

#2452817 Jimmy Howard And Monster On Punishing Goalies For Instigating Fights

Posted by Euro_Twins on 11 November 2013 - 08:28 PM

It should be treated like a regular fight, if both parties are willing participants and it is a good clean fight, 5 minute major, and it's over. If it is like what emery or others have done, it should be an automatic  suspension, minumum 5 games. Holtby did nothing to deserve what he got, and emery is a thug who has no real hockey skills

I would have rather seen ouellet up over almquist... ouellet has a better defensive game.

Poor family.
And i seriously dislike these "psychics."
Nothing like profiting off the pain of the mourning.

#2437925 Gallant and Barch find a way around the new helmet rule

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 20 September 2013 - 10:48 AM

I logged in just to comment on this.


This is hilarious, cute, worrisome, and depressing all at once.


Hilarious: Great way around the rule. How can you stop it? They are being gentlemanly about it and playing/fighting within the rules (as ridiculous as they are).


Cute: How awkward they are. It's like two teenagers figuring out where to put their hands for their first dance. They are both obviously aware of their roles and both trying to stay on the big team. They both don't want to hurt each other (by letting the other remove the helmet) but immediately start to try to hurt each other. This is both cute and honorable and one of the reasons I love hockey fights, the pageantry of two enforcers knowing they have to meet at some point and being classy about it. Some people hate the "set up" fights, but I think that the fans of each of the teams want to see it and are somewhat disappointed if they don't. The other reason being the pure hatred that is built up over a game/season/career that is only curable through fists. Those fights are usually better (Mac/Lemieux).


Worrisome: This isn't going to last long. I bet the first draft of the rule is already written. Probably 2 for delay of game, 5 for fighting, game-misconduct, and maybe a short suspension/small fine.


Depressing: That it's come to this. So many recent, stupid rules (instigator, jersey tuck, glove tuck, goalie pads, puck over glass, trapezoid, spin-o-rama, stick curve, GOALIE INTERFERENCE OR NOT!?!?, and the dumbest: OTL). It's killed the game and made it so complicated that causal and new watchers are so confused that they won't attempt to watch it. If I were to talk to one of my co-workers who I know are into sports (NFL, NBA, MLB) and ask them what they know about hockey, 90% would mention "allowed to fight" in their answer. If I ask them why they don't watch it at least half would say "confusing/rules are weird."

A shame more people from this forum haven't watched this video. That was pretty inspirational to watch, I hope this takes off one day. I'd love to help out.

#2431964 Help with Datsyuk/ Perry auto

Posted by sleepwalker on 30 July 2013 - 01:18 PM

He does include the whole, "This is an NHL Licensed Photo of Anaheim Ducks Superstar Corey Perry autographed personally at their practice at Honda Center In Anaheim,CA during 2011-12 season on 11/11/11 fighting with Detroit Redwings Star Pavel Datsyuk...COA AVAILABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", which seems to be the only part of the description he wrote himself, but at least it's something.




I'd ask the seller just to make sure it is autographed by Pav too.   WHile the pic shows it, his description doesn't mention it, just that its signed by Perry.


Oh, and I also must also say, this is probably one of the more annoying ebay listings I've seen, description-wise.  I mean, did this guy seriously copy and paste the ENTIRE Wikipedia entries for both players and paste it into the listing?  lol
