#2623583 Adidas Gets NHL Jersey Deal

Posted by HadThomasVokounOnFortSt on 19 August 2015 - 10:01 PM

I like my cars black, and my sticks and skates white

I have a black car. :)

Also when I played high school hockey. A kid on my team had white skates. Let's just say we made fun of him a lot lol.

#2623343 Worst Free Agent Signings Ever

Posted by PavelValerievichDatsyuk on 17 August 2015 - 05:44 PM

That was the worst signing in the history of the universe.

A humongous big mistake.

#2623095 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by 55fan on 13 August 2015 - 05:15 PM

No guys. It's just like being in Detroit

They have no guys in Detroit either? 

That sucks, but I doubt that guys are what the majority are looking for.

#2623135 Lou Lamoriello new GM of the Leafs

Posted by kipwinger on 14 August 2015 - 09:30 AM

And the Maple Leafs hire Jacques Lemaire too. 


Toronto Maple Leafs @MapleLeafs 10m10 minutes ago

The #Leafs have hired Jacques Lemaire as Special Assignment Coach. #TMLtalk


Hmmm...Shanahan, Lamoreillo, Babcock, Lemaire.  Sounds like a good management group.  I just wonder if they've got enough ego ya know?  Like, do they have someone willing to take charge and be the boss, is my concern.  Lol. 


I can't wait for this to fail. 


I mean, what could go wrong with a plan to remake the 1995 New Jersey Devils, only without all the great players and in an era where that style of play is largely unsuccessful? 

#2622994 Kane Off NHL 16 Cover

Stevie was on it in the mid-90's, not sure when, but it was pre-Cup.

Stevie was (sorta) on the cover of NHL 96.


#2622961 Jurco Showing Off The Hands

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 12 August 2015 - 11:43 AM

Ah gotcha :P it was a little bit.. it was kind of just a general comment too though. a lot of people I know are too harsh on jurco too early.

I know the large amount of forwards on the roster contributes to his role last year but we haven't seen even close to the best version of jurco that we will imo


I love me some Jurco, no issues for me.

Mrazek has never even taken us past the first round time to trade him for bryzgalov and Dan Cleary

I actually kind of miss seeing bryz,he was a character. And for a few days there he looked like a decent goalie too

#2622322 Brandon Sutter traded to Canucks

Signed to five years, $4.375 million per year. 


That Nyquist contract keeps looking better.

#2622306 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by number9 on 05 August 2015 - 11:05 AM

Realgud points everyone. I've been swayed and forced to change my vote again!


The major difference between Nyquist and Tatar is that Nyquist is a goose, and Tatar is a Mexican water bug.


Now the thing about geese is that some can lay golden eggs, like Gus did during the 13-14 season. However, to lay golden eggs, geese have to be loose. Hence the phrase "loosey goosey". Because geese are not always loose, a goose like Nyquist will be streakier from time to time.


Being a Mexican water bug, Tatar is obviously more lively and quick with the puck. But the main advantage of being a Mexican water bug is that it is a made-up insect that only exists inside the mind of Mickey Redmond. So basically the sky is the limit on Tatar's potential and what he will develop into. Don't ask me why Mickey's made-up bug is Mexican.


I know it's boring nerdy science stuff i got from a spread sheet, but the facts are there. Each has their strengths and weaknesses.
