#2578983 Mike Green is using a stick that was discontinued almost a decade ago

Posted by Smite on 05 March 2015 - 02:39 PM

Reminds me of the Canadien Cam Neely hockey sticks. It was my favorite, hardly any flex I could let rockets go with that stick. I started using them not long after he retired eventually his stick could not be found. 

 

On the other hand I remember shelling out 35 bucks (was a lot for a wooden stick at the time) for a limited edition Steve Yzerman Louisville. They were individually wrapped, send down from the heavens and when I first gripped it I thought this is the stick that is going to smash any minor league goal records known to man. I took extra time tapping it, really my first true love. The second shot in pre-game warm up it shattered..... Along with my heart.

As for Marchenko I am pretty sure you need to send the player down prior to the trade deadline for him to be eligible for the AHL playoffs. (silly rule) I did not see that he went down. I do not know if there is an exception if the player is on IR.  

You can't send a player down while he's on IR. They said they would send him down when he's healthy. They sent Jurco down (only on paper) to make him eligible for the AHL playoffs. They had to do that because Jurco hasn't played in the AHL this year, but the paper transaction I guess makes him technically an AHL player. They wouldn't have to do that for Marchenko since he's played substantial time with the Griffins. I think he'll be sent down to keep him playing. There's no sense in keeping him as the #7 and allowing his game to get rusty.

The Wings should buy up as many of those sticks as possible. That way he'd have no choice but to sign with us in the off-season.

What the hell does Lebron James know about hockey?

But we are a surprise.  Remember, this was the year we were missing the playoffs.

 

Every year is the year we are going to miss. Just like every year is the year the Leafs are going all the way.

 

Neither are ever true.

#2578259 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by number9 on 04 March 2015 - 01:58 PM

Watching the Maple Leafs lately has got me thinking quite a bit about wildlife documentaries.  I feel the same as those cameramen must feel when they follow around the water buffalo recently bitten by a komodo dragon.  You know he's poisoned.  You know he's dying.  You know the end result.  Even if they don't.  This is only going to get uglier between now and the draft, when (mercifully) the final agonizing death throes should end. 


This year has been rough, as well as the 45 before it, but I think next year is the one for them.

A first offense should just get a warning.

 

A second offense should get a fine.  Pun in-ten-ded.

Retaining half the cap is probably the only way the rags would've included duclair too.. whether they could've fit yandle under the cap or not.

Obtaining him probably had something to do with the yotes' motivation for retaining half the cap hit.

He's going to look great with domi.. and potentially one of McEichel. The coyotes have a real good chance to build a long term contender in a few years or so if they do it right.

 

Not after Old Man Doan squashes them with one of his patented body checks.  Gotta let these little punks know you don't get anything easy on the Arizona Coyotes roster.  It's Doan's way, or the broken bones way!

Helping this chain of (somewhat on topic) hi-jinx come to fruition may be my proudest moment on this forum.. Long live Justin Maple Spitter.


Me and Jimmy do it all the time in gdt's. Sorry

1st, awesome GDT as always.

2nd, that third line though. That's the kind of depth you need in the playoffs.. I'm so stoked for the rest of the season/post season.

Call me crazy but I think we win in the shootout, 3-2. Tatar and nyq each score in relation and the shootout.
LGW!!


You're... you're crazy, man. I like you, but you're crazy.

Go look at Dion phaneufs hero rating.

 

Careful.  You might owe Phil Kessel an apology.  And as I understand it, the Maple Leafs employ of team of lawyers for round the clock protection from hockey fans.

There is no defending James Neal.
