#2534757 Sharks enter training camp with no C or A's

They also did this to Marleau in favor of Thornton. Maybe they should figure out something else instead of killing morale within their own club.

There is no easy schedule in professional sports.

Such a glorious win. I rooted for the Germans last world cup (after USA was knocked out early too of course) and I'm really hoping they win it this time.

#2530904 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 09 July 2014 - 07:15 PM

I still have such an insane backlog of games to play right now I think i'll hold off until fall at the earliest at this point. Don't laugh, but I have about 35 games that I own on 360 between arcade and retail that I have never even touched and want to finish before even thinking about moving on. Some of them are project games also, not just small quick playthroughs. 


The only thing that might draw me in sooner is Titanfall on One.


You should see my Steam library... :blushing: I curse you, Steam Summer Sale!

#2495244 3/14 GDT : Edmonton Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Or people aren't on LGW because it's nothing but people complaining about how we suck? Or because it's a Friday night and people are out? Most of the people here are die hards, and some of us have been Wings fans long enough to remember what *really* losing was like. I doubt this season will push all but a handful away.

Sorry if I'm being overly sensitive, it's been a day...


But... you're still giving out butt pats if they win tonight... right?

#2494855 Where has NHL scoring gone?

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 12 March 2014 - 05:30 PM

My theory for the low scoring is the modern butterfly style dominating the league, as well as lots of those goalies being bigger now, or at least playing aggressive enough to look bigger.


Had to do some quick research and it looks like there were only a few goalies back then that implemented dropping to the knees in some situations, with only a couple goalies throughout the years actually using the style as a main like Tony Esposito and later Patrick Roy. It seemed to me that there was a bigger transition somewhere in the '90s/early 2000s where current pros switched to a hybrid or came into the league with some type of hybrid playstyle, where now today the butterfly style is dominant across the league.


I wonder how much scoring would be achieved back then if goalies had better masks and the butterfly was more popular; It seemed that a lot of goals back then that you can find on youtube were low-- between and around the skates.

#2488395 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 01 March 2014 - 06:40 PM

Neal is a tool. But I don't like Franzen slashing players( he did it to one of the Ottawa players late in the game, don't remember who) in the back of the leg and running away either. Franzen shouldn't be fighting especially after all his concussions, but he should cool it with the cheap shots too.


So people don't like Franzen yapping and slashing people but they're alright with Ottawa's players cross-checking Franzen in the head and taking cheap shots at Datsyuk all game?


I guess apparently you need to be a fighter to stand up to Ottawa's antics in order to be accepted around here, but slashing as payback or chirping is a big no-no.
