#2247052 Vancouver, your sour grapes are showing

Posted by ogreslayer on 19 January 2012 - 10:06 AM

My favorite part of the article is the byline:


Is the Sun not sure if Cole writes for them or are they not sure that they still exist?

Apparently, Selanne declined as well.

Grumpy old men. :D

With age comes wisdom...

...that the All-Star game is really worthless.

#2241964 Krys Barch.

Wow thats pretty ridiculous to get a suspension for saying that. He could've even just been making a joke about how one got thrown at him during that shootout.

Wrong player actually. The banana throwing incident was Wayne Simmonds. Barch made that "slip on a banana peel" comment to PK Subban.

#2235292 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 December 2011 - 12:57 PM

I think he plays again in the regular season, only it's in a helmet that makes him look like this...

Ultimately, I would rather have him playing than have to put up with all of the media coverage of will he or won't he play.

#2233070 Realignment decided - 4 Conferences

Posted by ogreslayer on 05 December 2011 - 10:19 PM

Let's see, the Wings wanted less travel out west especially during the playoffs & more games with traditional rivals in the east. And with this realignment they get....less travel out west & more games with traditional rivals in the east. How did the Wings get screwed with this move?

And from the reports I heard, the reason the 2 eastern conferences have 7 teams each & a better percentage chance to make the playoffs is to get those owners to buy off on the additional costs & travel time of now having more games out west under the new alignment. And for any complaints about teams missing the playoffs out west with more points than teams in the east, how is that any different than now?

Screw it, just give the C to Hudler or Ericsson & watch LGW erupt.

#2226205 Eaves needs to be in every game

Posted by ogreslayer on 16 November 2011 - 12:40 PM

Personally, I would love to see Patty, hell anyone really, bring some speed and energy on Pavs' wing so we don't continue to see Pavs having to enter the offensive zone with no other Wing close to him, try to stick handle around 4 players, lose the puck, & have it come right back out of the zone. Getting soooooo sick of seeing that happen multiple times a game.

#2226180 Mike Commodore

Posted by ogreslayer on 16 November 2011 - 10:45 AM

No. Columbus didn't even want him last year.

And a huge part of the reason for that, and why no other team claimed him on waivers, was the ridiculous contract Columbus signed him to. At the price Kenny signed him for, I think there would be a pretty good chance some team would claim him at least on re-entry waivers seeing as how they would only be on the hook for 50% of his salary. I'm pretty sure there are enough teams out there who need help on the blue line that would take a chance on Commodore on re-entry waivers for $500k.

Time to try Eaves on the point imo

#2221538 This season is over!

I'm blaming it on a Stanley Cup Hangover...from 2008. :P

#2217849 I went to school with Abdelkader. Nice guy.

I lived next to a chick that was banging McCarty; but haven't we all at some time or another?

Which one, banged McCarty or lived next to a chick who did? Neither for me, thanks.

I blame Kirk Maltby for all this.

Did you know that he was a 50 goal scorer in juniors?

#2214319 How Do You Feel About The Southeast?

Posted by ogreslayer on 12 October 2011 - 11:28 AM

You know, this is starting to turn into a situation where I would actually be happy if Bettman turned out to be a liar & the Wings stayed in the Central. Come on Bettman, be the little weasel we all know you can be & get the BoGs to move Nashville to the SE!

#2214231 How Do You Feel About The Southeast?

He also mentioned it on Insider Trading on TSN during the Sens/Wild game :hehe:

So does that mean that someone hacked Bob McKenzie himself? :ph34r:

#2214211 How Do You Feel About The Southeast?

Posted by ogreslayer on 11 October 2011 - 08:48 PM

Blah I hope not. Just switch Nashville to the Southeast. Winnipeg to the Northwest and move Minnesota to the Central. Problem solved.

As much as I want to see the Wings move East, if all the NHL is going to do is slide a team into the SE, it really makes more sense to move Nashville or Dallas.
