#2218137 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by Electrophile on 25 October 2011 - 09:20 AM

but god forbid elmo, jesus, lolcats, or steve yzerman himself offended someone though, cause you would be all over their ass... laughable



I'm 29, so you can cross out Elmo. I'm an atheist, so you can cross out Jesus. I don't think lolcats are particularly that funny, so you can cross that out too. If Steve Yzerman said something offensive, I'd be embarrassed as a fan. So you can cross that off too.

Well, I guess that leaves you with no point. Nicely done. :clap:


#2218028 Pronger injured after high-stick

I have nothing against Pronger and I hope he can still see with both of his eyes.

Exactly.

I guess I gave Wings fans too much credit. Pronger has been a major rival over the years, but from the replay and from McKenzie's twitter update, it seems pretty likely he either had an injury to his eye or a very close call. It sucks to see any player suffer an injury like that during a game.

jeebus people. It's not like Pronger has ended anyone's career like Bertuzzi.

Who cares if that's a s***ty call? It benefits us. Be pissed off if it was a s***ty call against us.

I don't think he really pounded him. He got all helmet and missed when the helmet was off.

Datsyuk and Zetterberg are good hockey players.


#2210831 Brendan Smith suspended for 5 games

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 30 September 2011 - 10:52 AM

serious hate comming down on shanny on twitter. this is silly, ben smith should get suspended for headbutting smiths shoulder. this is just so stupid. if ur heads down thats what u get! if the guy uses his shoulder it is a clean hit 99 percent of the time. im just distraught

Ben didn't headbutt his shoulder. Brendan threw a high risk hit and missed, only clipping the head. Now he's getting punished for it.

Here's the way it should be done.

compared to the wrong way.

Vladdy takes a better angle and is coming in low for the hip check. He's got his body lined up properly with Lemieux's, so even when Turtle tries to avoid the hit, Konstantinov makes solid contact with him.

Brendan came east west and was going to miss, so he threw a shoulder, which has an extremely high chance of clipping a guy in the head. Ben Smith didn't have his head extraordinarily low. It was where most guy's would be when they're carrying the puck.

I think the suspension is too long, but this was not Ben Smith's fault because of a toe drag move or having his head too low.

#2211810 Illitch: Definitely a new arena coming

Posted by zombi on 03 October 2011 - 08:00 AM

Hockeytown Arena?

No?

Well, the good thing is it hopefully won't be a shared arena with the Pistons.


#2211228 Illitch: Definitely a new arena coming

Posted by vladdy16 on 01 October 2011 - 10:47 AM

No arena in the NHL has better sight lines than the Joe. Just ask the Sharks fans - there is an actual rule that you can't lean forward because you'll block others sight. A new arena will not be as good because of the suites. Cheap seats will suffer. Bank on it.
So the Joe is not as sparkly as other arenas - I go there to watch a game, not shop or "dine" or be seen, and the Joe is the best place for that.
Americans have no respect for history. Tiger Stadium, the oldest open-air park in the world, was left to molder and eventually be torn down. I think that's just pitiful. What if Italians just tore down the Coliseum or the Sistine Chapel because they were too old? No one back then thought they'd be standing thousands of years later. Not that I think the Joe is on par with these treasures, but it really is a monument to great planning. I'll take the run-down Joe with it's gray columns and outhouses in the smoking area over a brand-new, sparkly testament to bigger, better, faster any day.


#2209704 Mursak is out

Posted by Aussie_Wing on 25 September 2011 - 09:51 PM

Isn't there a rule that an injured player can't be exposed to waivers? In that case, can't the Wings put him on LTIR and bring up someone until he's better? Then when he gets better, they'll have to decide who to expose, IIRC.

I'm thinking Brunnstrom, but if he makes it and proves himself, they may not want to expose him.

Drew freaking Miller.


#2199144 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 July 2011 - 07:58 PM

I sure hope it is retirement....Does Holland really think Osgood is the best back up option? I guess Nabokov isn't worth Hudler to him....or is it the Isle's dont want Hudler?

edit: I am a huge history buff, but damn I am growing tired of nostalgia on this team...Draper, Osgood, it's time to go, hang them up, retire! SPEND THE MONEY HOLLAND! TRADE HUDLER!

Posted by 9-HoweFan on 18 July 2011 - 04:27 PM

At least it wasn't the other way around.

I'm more worried about any lingering health issues.


Speaking of health issues....Osgood reminds me of Herpes, you just can't get rid of them. An just when you think your safe, it flares up again.

WTF, he must have some pics of Holland in a balerina dress or something. I can't figure it out.
