#1999998 I don't get all of the Colby Armstrong Love

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 15 June 2010 - 05:36 PM

I don't get it either.Who would want a guy that can skate fairly well,hit,put up some points,and fight?wow..seriously??who needs well-rounded players.


#1999938 Chat with Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill at 2 p.m

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 15 June 2010 - 03:09 PM

It sounded like how he talked about Abdelkader that they are very high on him. It also sounded like they are expecting him to be pretty mean too.

He also said they are looking at free agents to fill a fighter type role which is good news to me :thumbup:

This is good news for me too.


#1999284 Kane and Byfuglien joke around

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 14 June 2010 - 01:02 AM

I can't wait for the day that Patrick Kane gets his ass handed to him.I want someone like McGrattan or Boogaard to just absolutely kick the s*** outta him.One of the top 5 punkass princesses of the league.

Wait....this isnt NHL 10????


#1999272 Hudler+4th line grinder

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 14 June 2010 - 12:34 AM

Hudler will be a bust?

He scored 57 points drifting between the 3rd and 4th lines, half of which (29) came at ES with virtually no help. Should he be played on the top two lines with skilled linemates, he'll easily match that kind of output if not exceed it significantly.

When he played on the 3rd line,he was mostly playing against other 3rd lines.He's gonna be competing with better players if he plays on the 2nd line.


#1999257 A Question To NBA Fans

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 14 June 2010 - 12:11 AM

The only full season I watched of the NBA was in 2004-05 when the Pistons and the Spurs played in the finals and the Spurs won the title.

Guess why. :angry:

Global warming,right???


#1999250 TSN: Forsberg Almost Joined the Flyers at the Trade Deadline

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 June 2010 - 11:53 PM

He needs to retire.I'm sick of hearing about the Forsberg bulls*** every summer and every trade deadline.


#1999242 Hudler+4th line grinder

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 June 2010 - 11:42 PM

How many seasons in a row do we have to 'expect' a bigger year from Filpula and Cleary?

Hopefully we can stay far more injury free this season. With Hudler being back, I'm hoping for so better offense, especially on the pp.

I don't really think asking for 50 points when a guy is playing with Zetterberg on and off is too much to ask.I still think Hurdler is gonna be a major bust.


#1999131 If Bertuzzi isnt re-signed...

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 June 2010 - 07:48 PM

Oh brilliant. Someone brings up the NHL video game for some original hilarity.

How in the hell is Asham going to command a salary TRIPLE to $1.5m? He'll be lucky to make a mil. You should read my earlier post about how Asham is 32, wasn't anywhere near his career best season and has had his salary decline over the past 3 seasons despite point production increasing.

I just ignore dumbass posts like that.


#1999101 Study on checking in youth leagues shows higher brain injury risk

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 June 2010 - 07:02 PM

I'm for the physical part to the game, just felt this was an interesting article to discuss.

http://www.npr.org/t...oryId=127748445

Study compares an Alberta 11+yr old league w/ checking and a Quebec non checking league. Regardless of the speaker making hockey sound disgusting, the whole article is more about what age kids should start body checking (not if they should).

I'm sick of hearing about this s***.Its hockey.if you don't like being hit,don'tf****** play.its a traditionally violent sport.As Mike Milbury puts it,pansification of this game needs to stop.


#1999020 How much better would we be looking with Leino and Kopecky

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 June 2010 - 03:25 PM

Somewhere in French Canada, Martin Lapointe is lifting weights and grooming his beard, wondering what happened to his career ever since he left Detroit.

Although, he did get paid big bucks by Boston, so maybe it wasn't a total failure for him.

He's probably chillin with Mathieu Dandenault.

...this would've work cap-wise

Franzen-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Filppula-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi
Hudler-Helm-Cleary
Leino-Abdelkader-Kopecky
Draper

Lidstrom-Rafalski
Kronwall-Stuart
Ericsson-Lilja
Kindl

Howard
Osgood

looks like a championship squad to me.

You know what,that does look like a championship ballerina team.Good call.


#1999015 July 1st...

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 June 2010 - 03:07 PM

Damn you no cap space Ott Sun is reporting LA wont be re-signing Frolov and could possibly go after both Marleau and Kovy.

I can see Marleau in Los Angeles since he said he wants to stay west.I don't see Kovalchuk in any NHL uniform again,tho.


#1999011 Tollefsen headed to Sweden

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 June 2010 - 02:58 PM

He would never crack the roster here anyway.


#1995256 6th Defenseman

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 June 2010 - 12:32 PM

exelby is a guy I've wanted on the wings for a while ever since he laid out sundin. I think he would be the perfect 6th defenseman for this team.

Agreed.He's got plenty of snarl,which we desperately need.


#1995254 Great or Bust?

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 June 2010 - 12:28 PM

Not every finnish player is god, you know that right?

One way or another,every Finnish player has some god given skill,according to him.
