#2609641 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by kipwinger on 22 May 2015 - 10:28 AM

Slava Fetisov, former Red Wing defenseman and star of the wildly popular documentary "Red Army", wants Russian law to ban Russian hockey players from coming to the U.S. before their 28th birthday. 


You'll recall Fetisov's story.  He bucked Soviet law preventing him from coming to the U.S. to play hockey, by refusing to play for their national team.  In the documentary he explained how he wanted to be free to make his own decisions, make his own money, and determine his own future, without being coerced by federal authorities. 


And now he's a federal authority.  And he's trying to restrict young players from having those very same liberties. 


Here's a thought Slava.  Rather than using a draconian legal system to force people to stay against their will, how's about you work toward reforming said legal system, and equally restrictive and authoritarian economic policies, so that people will WANT to stay in your s***ty country.  You are, after all, a Senator. 


What a dick.

Found this gem over on 'Maple Leafs Forever'...





#2608326 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Matt Shepard ‏@ShepMatt 2m2 minutes ago

according to @pham1717 the Sabres have offered Babcock north of 5-mill


Writer who follows the Sabres... Talking to Shep right now... Wow, that's a lot of dough


That's insane for a coach. I want Blashill anyways, so take the money and run Babs.

I think I'm just gonna keep posting this:




This is the smoking gun we've been waiting for. Unequivocal proof that the DoPS is just a bunch of chimpanzees spinning a wheel of fortune.

#2592518 Marchenko to play Game 1 in the playoffs

Posted by Superman54 on 11 April 2015 - 09:16 PM

Honestly his production has not been what was sought out to be by management IMO. His bonehead play in Quebec didn't help his popularity much either, so start the righty and see how game 1 plays out. It could light a fire under Smith's arse if anything...

Assuming this is Smith sitting out

would have never thought stevie Y would be on the joking side of things

he was captain serious before Toews could walk


Actually Yzerman always had a sense of humor.  He was one of the biggest smartasses on the Wings, but he kept it pretty well out of the public.  You didn't really hear stories until later in his career, and especially after he retired.  


Though there is the infamous moment of him taunting Domi from the bench with the heavyweight belt gesture after Domi's rematch with Probert.


Toews just seems like he has zero personality.

#2587052 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by DickieDunn on 31 March 2015 - 12:36 PM

I think this is a test to see how well he bounces back from a crap game.

#2583675 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by 55fan on 21 March 2015 - 10:30 AM

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.
