#2151359 Why detroit is hockeytown

Posted by plopster on 16 April 2011 - 10:59 PM

thats not a representation of the hockey fans watching the playoffs at all. Come on, thats an ESPN poll. Most people who still pay attention to their polls and stats are mostly football and basketball fans. Real hockey fans know ESPN are hockey haters so they don't even bother. Look how dark blue the states are in the south east though....

#2067389 Controversy in Pittsburgh

Posted by plopster on 23 November 2010 - 10:52 AM

Wow. Where to begin.

I thought I was pissed when I saw the video. Carman just sunk to a new low.

First off, that is not a goal. The whistle blew and the defenseman knocks the goalie into the net along with the puck. No goal.

Second, the fact that they said it was a goal is a huge embarrassment to the league. That was such a damn joke. When the ref on the ice says it is not a goal because the whistle was blown should indicate to the league replay guy that he needs to LISTEN to the replay. It was obviously never any question that the puck eventually crossed the line. Holy f*** come on people.

Third, the fact that a Pens team is desperate for such a call to go in their favor just shows how far they have fallen this year.

I smell a "what if Modano had retired" at the end of the stanley cup next year.

#2001891 Nice little article on our 2010/11 lines...

Posted by plopster on 20 June 2010 - 09:41 PM

all player debates aside, here are my projections/hope for the lines next year. I may be wrong, but if they arent keeping lilja then i guess we put erricson in there but damn he sucked quite a bit last year. and dont even get started with the bertuzzi debate. hes a bum on offense and you all know it. yes he was good at keeping the team afloat with all the injuries last year, but he just isnt up to par on offense like the rest of the forwards on this list and you all know it. like some people on here said in the maltby thread, its time to stop being sentimental. he was a good fill in and thats it. end of story. you were grasping at straws last year saying he was great. he was turnover todd and you all know it.

zeterberg, datsyuk, holmstrom
hudler, fillpula, franzen
draper, helm, eaves,
miller, abdelkader, bertuzzi

lidstrom, kronwall
rafalski, stuart
lilja, kindl


#1936589 Evander Kane vs Matt Cooke

Posted by plopster on 10 April 2010 - 08:05 PM

He got hit square on the button. Lights out. Only other fight I have seen better than that was when stu grimson took reid simpson out with two hits.



#1935145 Modano

Posted by plopster on 08 April 2010 - 10:13 PM

Anybody watching Modano's last game in Dallas? He is in on both goals in the game including tying the game with a minute and a half to go and now in the shootout scores a wicked wrister. Credit where credit is due. An American classic there. I hope he comes back for one more so he can at least finish his last season in the postseason. They gave him a three minute ovation with 5 minutes to go in the period and the Stars win it. Will go down in history if it is his last game.


#1931365 History will be made commercial

Posted by plopster on 03 April 2010 - 07:16 PM

They actually played a Dallas Drake "History will be made" commercial today at the Joe. Very similar to the one posted here, only the end caption read "What if Dallas Drake never came home?". I liked it a lot.


Lame. They stole my idea and changed the words around so they could say it is original.

Better put, from Pierre's point of view: "What if Datsyuk hadn't gotten a burst of wind?"


As you can see above Pierre Mcguire is a dousche who is a commercial break away from Rob Ray coming out of retirement for a few minutes.

Man I miss Darren Pang being the on ice reporter on national broadcasts. And watching all those old broadcasts making all those videos I really miss Gary Thorne and Bill Clement. I don't mind Doc so much, but eddie is lame.
