Just because you don't like someone and you make a comment in a thread that its welcomed in doesn't mean I compare him to my jilted ex-girlfriend. But it is funny how he does get compared to a "girl"friend and not some sook of a boyfriend.


I wasn't directing that comment at any specific one post.  Like I said, I think he's the best player in the league but I still pretty much cant' stand him. 


But I also don't go seeking out videos about him that will only irritate me.  Especially when one of the biggest complaints is about how much attention he gets.   It's like drinking spoiled milk repeatedly and then asking someone else to drink it.  "Doesn't this taste awful!  Here, have some!"


I prefer to go the route of "He Who Shall Not Be Named" when it comes to Crosby.

Ugly third, but our boys got the two points. Is that a four game win streak?

With the losses by CBJ and WAS, a good night. Congrats to Alfie for the GWG. I hope Jimmy is OK after that weird play when he went down awkwardly behind the net. I think regardless, Gustavsson should get the start tomorrow night.

My absolute favorite part of that Nyquist goal was when Mickey says "Oh My.........Oh My God"  :notworthy:

OMG how did I miss out on this? *bangs head on desk*


Why bang your own head when you could get Neal to do it for you?

#2500493 Pens Twitter Fail:Ask Neal Anything...

Posted by Son of a Wing on 24 March 2014 - 05:31 PM

So today via Twitter The Penguins asked fans to submit questions for James Neal.


Hilarity ensues...


Some examples...


Flyers Nation ‏@FlyersNation  3h
James, do you get the biggest thrill out of kneeing someone in the head or cross checking them in the head? #AskNeal


John Forsyth ‏@blackbear93  1h
#askneal if you could go back in time and end the career of any player in NHL history who would you choose?


Steph ‏@myregularface  1h
Is it more rewarding to score a goal or concuss another human? #AskNeal


Greg ‏@GDubs10  2h
. @penguins Hey James, long time fan first time tweeter. What's your favorite hockey play? The Flying V or the Flying Elbow? #askneal


Jeff Mehmel ‏@ThaBKeeper  2h
Have you ever cross checked or kneed your grandma in the head?  Stupid question.  Of course you have, you're James Neal #askneal @penguins


Steph ‏@myregularface  2h
If you could have any super power, how would you use it to hit opponents in the head? #askneal


Mike From Attleboro ‏@MikeFromATown  2h
How does one go about playing as dirty as you do while fighting less than the Swiss? #AskNeal


Steph ‏@myregularface  2h
If Crosby wasn't your teammate, would you try to knee him in the head or use a different body part to contact his head? #askneal

#2497320 Ferraro: An incredible night for landon and my family

Posted by Smite on 19 March 2014 - 03:40 PM

TSN article 





I am incredibly lucky in life - fabulous wife, four awesome sons and a great job.

Every once in awhile, it seems like life lets dreams become real - and that is a gift.

I had one of those moments in Detroit on Tuesday. My son, Landon, played his first NHL game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, his favourite boyhood team.

When he phoned me to say he had been called up, I had so many visions of him as a little boy, pretending to be Mats Sundin, the joy we shared in going to the rink and the disappointments along the way.

As all parents know, nothing deflates you like a tough day for your child, nothing makes you happier than their success.

I happened to be flying to Toronto anyways - for a TSN game the next day - so when I got off the plane, I looked for a text from Landon whether he was in the lineup or not. He knew he would be in warm-up and that was enough for me to hop on another flight. And when I got there for warm-up, I saw he was on a line and knew his dream (and mine) was about to become reality.

My last game in the NHL - in May of 2002 - was in Detroit. Now Landon's first game was going to be in the same arena. I can see the post where Landon and his brother, Matt were waiting for me post-game; we all knew my career was done. Full circle stuff.

When the Wings came out of the tunnel, I was looking for that familiar skating stride and there he was. An NHL player. I have to say, the tears came pretty quickly. He played well, just under 10 minutes. I will never forget this night.

What an incredible night for our family, and in particular, for Landon. I'm so proud.

Share you thoughts with Ray Ferraro on Twitter at @rayferrarotsn.

#2496418 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by rick zombo on 18 March 2014 - 11:17 AM


Like I said, have you seen him pass?  It might well be a bad thing.


Whatever man. Smith's passes are usually tape-to-tape.


Just ask Ryan Smyth.

Abdelkader is a game time decision, if he's out Landon Ferraro will be making his NHL debut. If that's the case I have no idea which line he'll be on. Leafs lines are an educated guess.

I can't even remember the last time I saw a hip check in a wings game so good job Pulks!



The fact that after two periods the Wings have only 1 goal against a terrible Edmonton tea

m is just pathetic.


With all our injuries, we are not really that much better then Edmonton right now. Especially on D.
