didn't they just crush austria 6-0... why change the lines now?

 

Test chemistry. Babs changed lines during the Austria game a couple times that way when it comes down to elimination game they know who for sure is playing and who is not. However, Kunitz should be sitting. Nash has been pretty bad too.

Great to see Canada switch the lines up, but I have no idea how Kunitz is still in the lineup. This is like Babcock and Cleary situation. MSL deserves playing time over Kunitz 110 / 100 times.

Tatar in the shootout. f*** yea.

 

Russia minus Datsyuk and Malkin are really really bad. I cannot believe how much Kovalchuck has regressed since playing in the KHL, he looks terrible.

Cbc announcer always is saying stuff like they've really tightened that box, that's a tight box, Russia can't get into that tight box, or my favourite creepy one, oh Ya, look at that tiny little box.

 

Haha I noticed that as well.


Just tuned into the USA game.  Kessel with a hatty?  Him and JVR are deadly.

 

I hate Toronto, but those two are deadly together.

#2484292 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by darkmanx on 15 February 2014 - 05:28 PM

like I've said before, if Boston wants Q, I am asking for Joe Morrow in return. The B's may not do it, but that is my asking price.

 

I still turn K over along with Almqvist for the best possible return. If I need to throw in our 1st to get it, I will...

 

That doesn't get you much. Quincey is a UFA and sucks, Almqvist has proven nothing, as is his value and the 1st is middle of the pack for now and might be a late pick depending on how the Wings finish.

Yeah I just noticed that as well. Didn't realize that was the way everyone ranks it. And yeah, they should definitely go by either Golds, or overall medal count. IMHO.

 

I think they should go by overall medals imo. I understand Gold's are where it's at, but the Olympics are about winning the most medals, and USA and Norway should both be above Canada, and Germany should be below.

 

lol all you can do is laugh sometimes on this board regarding certains things.

You gotta admit that's a little ridiculous and comes off as them trying to find any way possible to keep themselves as high in the standings as they can. I mean come on a team that has the same amount of Golds and has 3 more overall medals should certainly be higher in the rankings.

 

I'm sorry, did Canada make the rules about the standings ? A little over sensitive I believe. Why don't you complain about Germany or some other country that have half the medals but are ranked higher.

 

Jeez, the hate is incredible.

Yeah actually you did compare them by saying team USA has also not faced a medal contender (after I referred to Norway and Austria being lucky draws). Team Slovakia is much more respected and has a much better chance for a medal than either Norway or Austria. And it's not my fault that team USA hasn't played their 2nd game yet. The point is, Canada got very lucky with their first 2 draws, compared to team USA who already faced a respectable team and will face a Gold medal contender (and home country) team Russia for their 2nd game.


Apparently stating facts is "hating on the favorites." So so overly sensitive it's almost laughable. lol

 

The hate is strong within this one. I love it.




#2483835 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by darkmanx on 14 February 2014 - 11:43 AM

Sorry to break it to you, but Henrik Zetterberg doesn't "owe" you anything.

 

I think he typed it wrong. I think he meant to say "He was selfish".

 

I said it before, and I will say it again. Datsyuk didn't have to stay with us for another 3 years, he could have went to Russia this coming year. If you think we are f***ed now, imagine us without Datsyuk for the next 3 years. I would let him go to Russa 110/100 times to have him for another 3 years. People need to stop being greedy and act like they owe us more then what they have already done.
