A friend of mine who works at the joe just called me. She said that he was skating this morning, and was skating about full speed. She did note that he was not in full gear which would be expected but he looked good. Shes no idiot when it comes to hockey either so this is good news.
Jolly and Dragon, put the bong down. Hes lucky he didn't kill that guy. No d-man in the right mind would try to take that puck away from the goalie with 3 guys on the fore check. They would always let him freeze that. Maybe your confusing Bartulis for putting his stick down in front of the goalies glove to potentially block any poke check coming from a fore checker to prevent the puck coming free. That is a much more common play than trying to play it.
so we lose 3 of the last 4 and everyone is giving up on the wings already? lets be real people.
the thread is intended for people to discuss how these injuries will effect the canucks season from here on out. not ***** and moan because we dropped 3 games to our division rivals who always seem to bring their A game against us.
all im asking is if you guys think VAN will be able to bounce back, or if the final stretch will force them to lay it all out there and wear them out before the playoffs.
Thats going to be real tough for the english speaking fans. I understand how they would want to have their names presented in the correct way, but when the vast majority of the teams income come from english speaking fans, we have to be able to read the names. It would take nothing short of learning the russian alphabet to figure out who these guys are if they were to change them. This would create a serious disconnect between players (especially new ones) and the fans. Just take a look at that Ovi pic...
English is legally the primary language in the US and Canada, lets keep it that way folks.
And yes I understand that nowadays its very possible that the majority speaks spanish. (I could be wrong on that)
Ya im happy with how they played as well. I didnt know much about either of them before recently and I had heard alot of hype about mursak. Glad to see hes living up to the hype. And damn that kid has some wheels.
Now its time for the real red wings to take the ice!
Nice post. Agreed with everything said here. Does this guy realize that this is year and last year (i think) are the first couple of seasons in a while where we havent had an enforcer? Weve had may, and downey around the last few years to help keep the cheap shots away. I believe the wings will have some enforcer type players coming up in abby (who also brings skill to the table) and callahan. nothing to worry about here.
Im sick of these teams who come in with 4 roster spots of goons and think theyre the s***. ill take the banners over PIM all day long baby.
11:30 - Arrive at Nemo's and order my first crown and coke. 11:50 - Smoke 4 cigarettes and finish my 3rd crown/coke because im so nervous about the nabby deal 12pm - Find out Nabby is a wing and take at least one shot. 1:50pm - Ride on Nemo's shuttle almost over and when slamming 5th crown/coke I nearly puke. 2:30-4:10 - Blackout period 4:45 - Wings win 18 to -4, I walk out of the Joe singing "The good ole hockey game" song. 6pm - I lose my entire paycheck at MGM but dont care because wings won 7pm - Get a few dances from my favorite girl at Bazoukis, Pocahontas.
any reports on datsyuk and cleary coming back? the 3-4 weeks they expected is coming up soon. i was really hoping theyd be back for saturdays game so i can watch them destroy turco and the other hawks hacks.
i dont think the caps can blame HBO for the losing streak, especially when the pens were on their winning streak. it sounds more like it was coincidental that the losing streak and filming were the same time.
and how could they not do it again? i dont think there was a single hockey fan that didnt like the series. i mean, we all hate the pens it seems like, but we watched it and enjoyed it anyway. why not put the wings in there though? whats the worst that can happen? we got on an 8 game losing streak but still win the division and make the playoffs anyway? id sacrifice 2 weeks of heartache to get the back stage look on our players and their personal lives, the same players we love and cheer for every game.
