#2484938 Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 18 February 2014 - 06:41 PM

I could see Finland upsetting the Russians for 2 reasons:

1. Finland lines up at the blueline and plays 110% D.

2. Russia needs to skate hard to penetrate the wall of D, and Ovechkin, Malkin and Semin have been quite lazy and HATE to chase dump ins.


I agree. The only line on Russia capable of doing anything is Datsyuk's. Probably because he controls the play and is more deadly with the extra ice instead of the one-and-done, me! me! me! on the rush offense that Malkin and Ovie seem to still be doing (Semin's been absolutely invisible). If Finland can limit any penalties, it's going to be hard for Russia to beat Rask at even strength.

Edler Edler Edler. He does a little bit of everything but moves the puck very well. He's struggling with Torts, so we could add him for cheap if they'll move him. He needs to be among our better swedes so he can reinvent himself in Detroit.


What do you mean by add him for cheap?


EDIT: nvm, you probably meant in the offseason after the Wings unload their free agents.

#2483100 NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 09 February 2014 - 10:24 PM

I'm glad, when I found out the games would be hosted in South Korea I shook my head. 


What's wrong with South Korea?


Speaking of, I wonder if they'll introduce Starcraft 2 in the 2018 Olympics  :lol:

#2481605 NHL 14

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 05 February 2014 - 11:13 PM

I pretty much only play Club/OTP outside of the GM Connected league I run. My EASHL skater is RD, 94 goals 343 assists +117 in 507 games. Legend 3 card, I only play defense.


We're in rare company! I absolutely love defense, and while I'm kinda forced to play center in club games, the past month or two I'd force my friends to play center so I can enjoy the intricacies of shutting down the opposing team. Also, when no club mates are on, playing D was the only sure-fire win for me in team lobbies or drop-ins for easily getting to legend.


Lately though, as in the past week lately, I started to try out goalie and I'm loving that as well. It's a much different challenge that I'd like to get better at to make it even more enjoyable.


I guess I just really like keeping the puck out of the net more than I do scoring points.

#2479021 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 30 January 2014 - 05:13 PM

If we're talking any coach in the league then I'd say either Trotz or Tippett. I've always felt they were up there as best in the league for as little talent they had to work with.

#2476371 Stamkos vs Tavares

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 23 January 2014 - 06:05 PM

Tough choice for me. I don't care about who'd fit better because they're world class players and I think either would fit just fine. IMO Tavares would make his linemates better but Stamkos can create goals and would be a go-to guy to shoot on the PP. I'm really not certain who I'd like on the team but something's telling me Tavares. Weak answer, I know, but oh well.


This isn't a popular opinion.
But I think Kate Uptons face is hit.
Amazing body though.
And Tavares would probably fit this team better, but I wouldn't pass up stamkos, that shot is sexy.


I agree. Her elbows are too pointy and her knees are sharp as well. 2/10 at best, I wouldn't even exchange a greeting.

#2475280 What Are You Playing?

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 22 January 2014 - 04:23 AM

Titanfall should be out soon; I think March. I'm really looking forward to that game for a new kind of shooter. Also another shooter coming out later this year that I'm looking forward to:






Err, hmm, I mean:
