The ability to think outside the box and think for oneself whilst following the established rules and regulations and working as a member of a team is almost unheard of in the working world. 


Half the people out there aren't smart enough to do it and freeze up when anything goes wrong; the other half think they are smart enough and go whole-hog in their own direction for the sake of being different without considering the consequences of their actions.

#2567813 Ovechkin joins elite company

Posted by korrowan on 02 February 2015 - 02:07 PM


How so?  A winger is not typically as good defensively as a center.  It's not his game.  If you look at the other top wingers ranked around Ovechkin (guys like Jagr, Lafleur, Bossy), I don't remember them being Selke candidates either.


The team has failed because other than him, few guys show up in the playoffs.  The Capitals historically are a bad playoff team.  Apparently, one guy can't change that.  


Well I have only really been a Wings fan and if Tatar or Nyquist or pretty much any other winger not named Franzen played like Ovechkin did/does they wouldn't be around.  Two way players is in my opinion the only way hockey should be played and all the rest of those guys are one trick ponies who sit in the slot or on the dot most the game waiting for a good pass or cherry pick waiting for a pass to score easy.  Just not my thing.

Except Monica Lewinsky's hand was a bit higher in real life. :/

You're not giving Bill his due.

Yes but Americans are sexually repressed and would never portray a sexual relationship accurately, therefore making this masterpiece MORE accurate in its obvious inaccuracy.

That is just simply false and not true.


Media absolutley hated Sundin I guess.


They would like Kessel more if he was Canadian.  I don't think that's a false statement.    


Also, I believe I have a point in saying there's not many beloved American born hockey players in Canadian cities.  I just can't think of too many.  Can you?

Nail biter for sure.


Glad Petr got a chance to redeem himself after that bad 1st and 3rd goal.


Like others, while I had hope, I wasn't quite sure what would happen this season, but am being pleasantly surprised almost weekly.

Remember that time everyone wanted Weiss gone forever? Lol


Not everyone! I always had his back haha

#2542887 Weiss

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 October 2014 - 05:05 PM

...at least he isn't playing Cleary and sitting Weiss. That would be the telling point there! I hope baby steps are what we need for Weiss.  If he could get that 50 point action going again, then that would be great! Lets hope we don't have another player that we keep saying "if he returns to form" with.  I think its obvious that certain player is really struggling to re-become what he was in 08-09, and I hope the same doesn't happen to Weiss. We could really use him...

#2526098 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

She needed to keep her yap shut and just be glad she's got a free ride at life. Yeah, I'm still a little sour about it.


No doubt!  I mean, since he's the one making all the money she probably shouldn't have any say in their join decision making at all.  It would probably be best if she could hold off having opinions or even talking as well.  Better yet, she should probably just lock herself in a cage in the basement and only be allowed out when Ryan Suter says so.  I mean, he makes money and she has "a free ride" so its not unreasonable to expect her to abdicate her say in their future plans for a life of domestic slavery.

I absolutely hate hearing, "they just need more experience, they'll be ready in a few years, growing pains." Absolute bulls***.  


What about Krug? What about Hamilton? What about Riley Smith? How come they don't need "just a bit more experience". These guys have just as much experience as our young guys and absolutely destroyed them.


It's not experience, it's talent and our team has very little.

I think Babcock is guilty of coaching for the individual. He's so busy managing egos and delicate psyches they he sometimes makes bizarre decisions. Like Glendening taking crucial face-offs, or his coddling of other players. Which is fine sometimes. But in a crucial playoff game, screw building confidence and go with what will win.

Considering the league didn't step in when we traded a fisrt rounder for Quincey, I'm going to go ahead and say no.

Kick me out?  You and whose army?



Seriously, he does need to respect his neighbours.  There's a time and place for partying, and we should find as many times and places as we wish. 

(I hope my neighbours see this.  Loud bastards.)
