#2534120 What Might Have Been: Gretzky to Detroit?

Posted by Zion on 12 August 2014 - 05:33 PM

As a person who BECAME a Gretzky fan because of the 1993 playoffs (still shocked when I see that was Lidstrom on ice for the GWG against) and eliminating TO to get to the Finals, I can tell you that:

 

No way in HELL was Gretzky anywhere near Yzerman in defense - ever.

No way does Gretzky do what Stevie Y does in 97 and especially 98

 

And we STILL had Yzerman do some great things in the 2002 playoffs.

 

Now if we got Gretzky for Gallant and some OTHER picks, we have something, but Yzerman? No effing way.

Getzlaf x-rays negative on lower body injury. I predict a 1-0 win, Corey Perry KO'd (twice) by Tatar.

Let's start a sticky for next year's preseason!

Exactly what I was thinking... and I was in the process of moving from Italy, so I missed the game... didn't even get to see him leave the ice.

Who here would like to string up Kenny for failing to make this team a real contender one last time?


#2268825 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by Zion on 10 March 2012 - 06:18 AM

"Filpulla" is lazy and he sucks™.


#2259012 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Posted by Zion on 19 February 2012 - 03:26 PM

I love the way SOME of the Sharks play. Pavelski is one of them.

That said, eff Ryane Clowe, and I think Brad Stuart's jersey DOES say it all. Posted Image


#2237580 Quebec culture minister upset at Habs

Think of how the Florida Panthers announcers PROBABLY pronounce Tomas Kopecky.

Now, we tend to make "Que" sound like "KWE", when it is actually pronounced "KAY". Does that help at all?


#2180558 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Vancouver in 2 1/2. Boston spends their home games brawling, and are disqualified and relocated to Quebec.

f*** Joe Thornton.

#2154227 200 posts for Game 4 victory

Posted by Zion on 20 April 2011 - 09:46 AM

We need 400 posts for a victory, but can't mention the SW word? Hmm...

... I would like to mention that it would be outstanding to be the first team to advance to the next round.

At least there is no Jason Williams in the lineup to get headshotted by Raffi Torres.


#2132254 Detroit vs Chicago

Posted by Zion on 19 March 2011 - 02:16 PM

It'd be good for travel, but bad if they let their kids skate circles around them. Ericsson and Rafalski, especially.

Dats and (especially) Zetterberg are just absolute machines in the playoffs, and I think Toews and Kane would be as shell-shocked as they were in '09.

Oh, and Helm, FTW.

Nashville Predators = Howard Wolowitz


#2130806 3/16 GDT: Capitals 2 at Red Wings 3

Ovechkin OBLITERATED by a Datsyukian hit after Pavel makes a Datsyukian deke around Mike Green, where Ovechkin is clearly charging Dats, lining him up.

Pavel then DESTROYS Alexander Semin with a Datsyukian fight, in which Pavel simply trades punches with Semin, Probert-style. Semin, fighting the way he fights, only lands hammerfists to Dats' shoulder pads... none of which fazes Pavel, who then skates to the penalty box, signaling his championship belt around his waist.
