#2199399 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by Kira on 19 July 2011 - 12:00 PM

As we well know, prophets and artists are never appreciated in their own time.

Maybe he didn't want to boo-hoo-cry in front of the camera.

That sounded rather snarky. I prefer to think that it's because he is at his summer place and didn't want to take away from family time to make a big fuss. He's always been a quiet soul.

#2199308 Backup Goalie?

Posted by Kira on 19 July 2011 - 09:59 AM

My dog could probably guard the net better than Turco. Ray Emery is just too much of a gamble. Better the devil we know than the one we don't...that's why I like the idea of Ty Conklin coming back. At least he's a proven commodity.

I just read that piece of tripe from Puck Daddy...he says Ozzie's career isn't "Hall worthy".

Excuse me, but three Cups, a Jennings, and 400 career wins isn't "Hall worthy"???? What planet are you living on???

#2199272 Nice Article on Datsyuk's Hometown Hockey camp.

Posted by Kira on 19 July 2011 - 08:29 AM

I've no idea, but from what I heard he really took to them well, and they to him. I guess we'll never know.

Some stupid wag online said, "Why is the media so obsessed on Datsyuk?" Why? Number one, I don't think they are "obsessed". Two, he's a breath of fresh air...no ego, no pretense. No mouth like some, and a s***load of talent to back it up. What's not to love?

He has always been a very caring person...this just proves it once again.

#2197657 Best Current Russian Player

Posted by Kira on 09 July 2011 - 11:57 PM

Think about it...this should be an absolute no-brainer. Who's got two Stanley Cups, and who doesn't? Who has three Selke trophies, and who doesn't? And who is getting up and coming players compared to them? Wanna take a wild guess?

#2197584 Ranking NHL Broadcasters

Posted by Kira on 09 July 2011 - 03:18 PM

And how many on that list of so-called "Good announcers" are going to be in the Hall of Fame for their broadcasting talents?

I'll take Ken and Mick over any of those other clowns. Hell, those tools in Nashville can't even pronounce names properly or even identify the players correctly half the time.

#2194594 Jagr signs 1-year deal with the Flyers

Posted by Kira on 01 July 2011 - 05:01 PM

Suckers! Better you than us.

This just might teach Philly to be careful what they wish for. I give him a month before he's whining or injured.

#2188247 Wings unlikely to sign Osgood/Draper

Posted by Kira on 23 June 2011 - 10:55 AM

Okay, let me get this straight in my head. You don't want Ozzie and Drapes back because you think they are too old, but yet you want to sign Jagr??? Excuse me, but isn't that a little hypocritical???

This is a plural "you" by the by...not directed at any one person.

But I don't understand the thinking behind this.

#2186786 Question: Why do Wings fans hate the Canucks?

Posted by Kira on 18 June 2011 - 04:45 PM

It's more a matter of fans being a bunch of arrogant jackasses. Proof in point, rioting after the game the other night. I know a lot of it wasn't real fans of the team, but damn, did you have to go and do that s*** and not only make your city look bad, but hockey fans in general??? I mean, come on, 100 people arrested, 150 taken to hospital for injuries - really, is that what you want people to remember about your team and its fans?

#2180645 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Posted by Kira on 28 May 2011 - 12:55 PM

Boston deserves this one. My housemate is in heaven, because she's been a B's fan for eons. I hope they bring it back to an Original Six team again. It's been pretty neat to have an O6 team win two of the last three Cups. Let's hope Boston makes it 3 of 4. GO BRUINS!!!!!

Oh yeah, there is one other thing...bears love to eat fish. :lol:

#2179670 Classiest Players

Posted by Kira on 25 May 2011 - 04:18 PM

Pavel Datsyuk. Class personified. Nick and Gordie Howe come close, but Pasha has more class in his toenails than 99.9% of the league.

#2178970 Very Sad To See

Posted by Kira on 24 May 2011 - 09:08 AM

It's not official with Rafi yet. But it will be an end of an era indeed when these guys hang them up. You can bet we'll not see their likes again.

#2176631 Sharks Accuse Canucks of Diving

As we used to say when I was a kid, "Takes one to know one."

OR as the more diplomatic version goes, "Only a true professional can spot another one."
