#2130232 Valtteri Filppula watch thread

It's the number of the magazine. It means weeks.

Don't care. I'm going to keep pretending it was Future Kenny standing next to a souped up DeLorean looking a little bit like Doc Brown who gave that quote.

I heard Crosby is having Zetterberg nightmares.


He gets the shakes whenever he sees a healthy, bushy, manly beard.

#2128385 Red Wing Tombstones

Posted by ogreslayer on 10 March 2011 - 11:15 AM

would lebda have a tombstone? or would you just dump him in a field or something? maybe a swamp?

No he would get a proper burial but instead of a tombstone, it would be marked with a pylon of course.

#2128384 NHL could lose Air Canada sponsorship over headshots

Posted by ogreslayer on 10 March 2011 - 11:13 AM

Hmmmm.....Any chance that several of the head honchos with Air Canada are Habs fans based on this reponse? Oh I'm sure that's just a coincidence right?

#2124228 Wings sign Howard to 2-year, $4.5M extension

Posted by ogreslayer on 01 March 2011 - 01:52 PM

One could argue that Niemi is a better goalie and has proven himself in the playoffs making him worth the extra $1.6MM per year.

And one could also make the argument that the 'Hawks won despite Niemi's performance and for a team like the Wings, signing Howard at the cheaper price is a much better deal because it allows them to spend that $1.6m elsewhere.

#2124206 I've decided-Datsyuk for Captain

Posted by ogreslayer on 01 March 2011 - 12:36 PM

Yes both Hank & Pavs deserve the C. You know how you solve it? Give it to Huds. Happiest...captain...ever... :hehe:

But seriously, it's pretty obvious that Hank is the captain in waiting so I really see no use in debating it.

His daughter will be watching the next couple of family meals from the pressbox after that.

Or stuck at the kiddie table with Hudler next Thanksgiving.

I heard there were concerns with his "core" temperature. What, too soon?

#2116290 Forsberg Joins Avalanche

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 February 2011 - 09:16 PM

But I thought Quincey was going to become the next Bobby Orr?

And I would think it would be difficult for him to help the Avs' defense while sitting out the rest of the season after shoulder surgery in December.

Used to read his stuff but I can't say I miss it now. Most of what he was writing about near the end seemed to be more about music, his kids, baby names, etc. Personally, I prefer to have more than just a little hockey in my hockey writing but I guess I'm weird that way.

#2113033 Valtteri Filppula Leg Injury

Posted by ogreslayer on 08 February 2011 - 01:02 PM

Per the Freep, he's out at least Wednesday vs. the Preds. Calling it an injury to his left knee.


#2106637 We need an Irishmen on the team....

Posted by ogreslayer on 28 January 2011 - 04:27 PM

lebda is not irish born and raised in chicago

You mean playing for the Notre Dame Fightin' Irish really doesn't mean he's of Irish descent? Really? I guess you're going to tell me now that Justin Adbelkader isn't actually from Sparta. :hehe:

It would explain why he played like he drank nine pints of Guinness before every game.

I've done nine pints of Guinness before. Lebda's play wasn't '9 pints drunk'. It was more like 15 at least.

Hey, did you know he was a 50 goal scorer in juniors? :hehe:

#2100411 Wings Negotiating w/ Nabokov

Posted by ogreslayer on 20 January 2011 - 12:51 PM

Well if he can get through waivers, this might turn out to be one hell of a steal. I think the problems in SJ didn't start & end with Nabby in goal like some would believe. I do think the move says less about the organization's belief in Howard & more about Ozzie's injury status.
