As a former Wildcat, this makes me happy :bye1:

#2524378 Eaves is OUT in Nashville

Posted by troubadour on 18 June 2014 - 08:27 AM

I really liked Eaves. He worked hard and just seemed like an all-around nice guy. Plus, he is (was?) the only Wing that I have an autograph from ;)     I hope he can find a place somewhere and have a productive, healthy season.

I'm fine with honoring Gordy. Another option could also be for Tatar's late father, Jan.

Ended up with $31.66, I'll round to $32. Thanks again, I know the Children's Hospital will appreciate it!

Z's beard is so majestic and glorious.

In honor of Datsyuk's new arrival, I will also pledge an additional $5 per Datsyuk goal and $3 per Datsyuk assist for tonight's game.
(Am I the only one who totally missed that he was re-married AND had a pregnant wife?)

Edit: just read that Kronwall's child has also been born, so same goes for him.

I have been looking forward to this, thanks Vladdy! I am going to pledge similarly to last year (I can't remember exactly):

X cents per goal based on scorer's jersey number. Double for pp goals and triple for shorties. Half for assists. i'll round up for odd numbers.

Before each game I will also choose a stat/pledge for that game only. Game 1 will be five cents per SOG.

I predict "subtle interference" will be brought up at the 13:00 mark, +\- 30 seconds. :P

#2485785 Olympic Hockey Streams?

Posted by troubadour on 21 February 2014 - 09:33 AM

If you have almost any major cable/dish provider, you can use your account info to access the NBC Olympics streams for free, and not just for the first 30 minutes.

Finland? More like Winland, amirite?!   In all seriousness though, I'm bummed for Pav but I'm glad he will have a few extra days rest.

#2484336 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by troubadour on 15 February 2014 - 10:36 PM

I feel bad for Z. FWIW, I have had back problems since I was around 20 (almost 28 now), and I can go months or longer being just fine, and then the dumbest, seemingly innocuous thing will happen and I will have to start all over. I am a funeral director so I do a lot of heavy lifting all the time and be great and then I will take the slightest slip on some ice or lift a laundry basket or something not even worth noting to myself and it will start. Sometimes it is even 2-3 days before the inflammation kicks in to cause pain.

For all we know, the long plane ride could have been enough on Z. I hope he has a productive, long-term recovery, not only for his hockey career but for his lifetime.

#2395224 Money on the Board - playoff style!

Posted by troubadour on 03 May 2013 - 10:40 AM

I updated my first post and sig, but wanted to add that I will be factoring in multi-goal games as well-double for two goals, triple for a hatty, etc. Last night Mule cost me $5.76 with just his two goals, hopefully he keeps it up and breaks the bank!

#2391799 Money on the Board - playoff style!

Posted by troubadour on 29 April 2013 - 04:19 PM

I'm going to pledge X cents for each scoring jersey number (example: 13 cents each time Datsyuk scores, etc) with double for powerplay goals and triple for shorties. I'll keep track of it myself (and will round up generously!)


Edit: I forgot to add that I will also factor in multi-goal games!

$10 per shorthanded goal

I'll keep track in my sig.
