#2052750 Brendan Smith nails Nylander from behind

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 26 October 2010 - 04:43 AM

Because they're hockey players and not ***** football players. Broken leg, no big deal i skate to the medic's office. Skate to the throat, no biggie, I'll skate to the bench to get another guy on the bench. Broken neck and back, pshhhh, happened in peewees, I'll walk it off.

Football: Sweet mother of God someone stepped on my toe, let's delay the game five minutes while I lay on the ground and then proceed to walk off under my own power.

Or you can fracture a vertabra, and not know that it has been broken at all.

But more than likely, it's because all football players are *******????? Can we exaggerate just a little more.

#2052749 Are hockey hits harder than football hits?

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 26 October 2010 - 04:28 AM

Pretty simple test. How many people have been paralyzed in each sport over a given number of years. NFL vs. NHL to keep it at the top talent level. While it might not tell you which hit is harder, it tells you which sport you have a better chance of getting seriously injured in. One other test, watch a 50 - 60 year old former football player walk around compared to a hockey player of the same age. Gordie at 82(?) moves around a hell of a lot of former football players 25 years younger do. I think over time the constant pounding of football definitely wins, but this is a hockey forum so I'm sure that I'm wrong about that.

#2052727 Brown Gets ejected for clean hit

So... This isn't the end of the NHL?

No that would be the continued league support for fringe market teams. But that's a whole new thread there.

Those fans didn't get kicked out -- they were removed from the area and given seats on the glass. Rightfully so.

Rypien is a Grade-A douchebag and the banhammer from Campbell should come down hard and swift.

It's not like he was hitting the fan with the fans shoe or anything.

#2049180 Youngsters ditching the visors

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 19 October 2010 - 12:06 AM

I haven't noticed, no. But then again I'm blind. I lost both eyes to high sticks because I wasn't wearing a visor. :P

The NHL is looking for some new referees. It would seem as though you would fit their current profile of refs that they are using these days.

#2048988 Players you've always wanted on the Wings

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 18 October 2010 - 02:33 PM

No, I don't think him being able to score was the reason he's hated. Sakic sure scored a s*** ton of goals on this team and yet there likely isn't one person who hates him. There's been plenty of pests that have come and gone, plenty of jackasses who try to fight people like Yzerman or Lidstrom, but the low that Lepuke sunk to was one of epic proportions and quite memorable.

A fantasy team of what I'd like on the Wings is likely based off of their actual performance and play style, which I presume just about everyone else here picked theirs, not NHL 11 ratings. Not to knock you for picking what you like, but, er, screw it, it was a dumb choice. :P

You need to go back and look at others lists, if you're dismissing HIM because he was known as a cheap shot artist. I see several others on peoples fantasy lists that have pretty long rap sheets.

The low that you speak of was a boarding penalty? Didn't Stuart take a penalty for that, 30 seconds into the game the other night? Sure the result was different, but the penalty was the same.

I guess we should all pile on Gordie and Lindsay for being cheap shot artists too. The league even had to add 2 rules to deal with our heroes flagrant elbows and knees to opposing players.

I know I didn't pick a popular choice here, but to dismiss his playing abilty at clutch times, because of one shot to a Red Wing is just missing the whole idea of this thread.

Also, I didn't realize that Lemieux was on NHL '11, but then again the last time I played a video game, Pong™ was new on the market.

PP is our enforcer, Right?

We are truly sissies then.

Wow, our PP really needs some Viagra. Sad.

Maybe it's the age thing.

#2047729 Dallas waives Brunnstrom

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 16 October 2010 - 01:12 AM

if im not mistaken he had a choice detroit or dallas and he picked dallas

He chose Dallas, because he was told he would be on the big club there. Kenny had the same plans for Fabian as he did with Leino. One year in GR to get used to the NA style of play. Fabian took the choice that got him to the NHL quicker. Looks like that worked out real well for him. Sure, he'd be a good project, but we can't afford to put a claim on on him right now. Plus, I've heard he's lazy, and he sucks.

#2047702 Letang "blindside" hit on Comeau

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 15 October 2010 - 10:58 PM

Comeau is perfectly fine, I suspect he laid on the ice for a bit to try and sell it.

Therein lies a whole new aspect of the headshot rule, " the sales pitch ". If they are going to boot a guy for a hit, they should, at least have to have a good neurological exam before they are allowed to put the receiver of the hit back on the ice.

The last thing I want to see is a player get a 5 and a game, and then watch the guy he hit knock in 2 goals on the ensuing PP.

#2044546 Wisniewski makes obscene gesture towards Avery

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 12 October 2010 - 01:52 AM

I kind of thought he was asking him if he wanted to have a few beers after the game. That's what that gesture signifies.....right??

#2044150 Mike Modano -- Mike MoTown!

I call him Mr. Willa Ford ;)

I thought it was Mr. Manda Modano now. :D

#2044094 Andreas Lilja to Anaheim

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 11 October 2010 - 12:42 AM

So that means he's going to have to jump in the scrum to protect Perry? I wonder if he can use the conscientious objector card?

#2043699 Kovalchuk Fights Mike Green

Looked like 2 chicks swinging their purses at each other. I was half expecting one of them to pull out their can of hair spray and spray the other in the eyes.
