#2233966 Kronwall and Stuart may be hitting a lot less now

Posted by sleepwalker on 07 December 2011 - 04:53 PM

I've seen the video (not jolly's crappy screencap, but an actual video with more than one frame) showing how he jumps into the hit.

I have too, and when you go frame by frame, and pause at the moment of impact, his skates are on the ice. If that is jumping into a hit, then what Kronwall and Stuart do almost every game is also jumping into a hit. I think thats the point of this thread...

The Shanaban video shows Fistric left his feet before contact.

No it doesn't. I've looked at the different videos multiple times and when you pause at the moment of impact, both of Fistrics feet are clearly on the ice. He left his feet on the follow through, just like Kronwall does on pretty much all of his big highlight real hits.

California cost cutting...this is their way to save the state budget.

Hah, no s***!

California has spent themselves so far into debt and bankruptcy that they can't even afford to keep the power on anymore.

#2226375 Datsyuk knows he has been awful.

What surprises me more is the following Babcock's quote in that article

Why players don't do that? Are they not listening to Babcock at all? All we saw last game are numerious passes during PP. Well, we had 3 PPs without a shoot on goal. Looks like the only player who shoots is Ian White and he is injured right now. Something is seriously wrong.

Thats a goodf****** question.

Babs isn't just saying that now, he has been saying it. Its like since Babs has been coach for a few years now, that the players are just used to him or something and ignore everything he tells them and let it go in one ear and out the other.

Babs "Shoot the puck on this PP, boys, none of this million pass game s***"

"OK, coach"

PP starts:

pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass

puck gets stripped and cleared

pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass

puck gets stripped and cleared

pass pass pass pass

pass gets intercepted and cleared

pass pass......

Well, you get the point.

#2225089 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 November 2011 - 01:05 PM

A one handed swipe to the leg equates to a two handed slash to the side of the head?


Nice complete lack of reading comprehension there. First, I clearly said "attempted", I never said he landed it, which he did attempt it, as you can see by the video he looks like he was going high with his stick, and got as high as he could while on his ass. I also never said two handed. Nice attempt at twisting what I said to try to make your counterpoint (or lack thereof) seem more compelling, though...

#2225074 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 November 2011 - 11:30 AM

Miller is very lucky he didn't connect with his stick there, it looked to me like he swung that goalie stick around like he was going for a Mcsorley....which is more of a piece s*** move if you ask imo don't skate to the hash marks, at Lucic of all people.

No s***. People talking smack about Lucic need to rewatch the video and see whats worse. Miller got butthurt he got knocked down way outside the crease, so he tried to take revenge by attempting a big slash at Lucics throat/face with his goal stick. Talk about gutless s***...

#2223528 Vladdy artwork exhibition in Royal Oak

Posted by sleepwalker on 07 November 2011 - 03:35 PM

Good stuff. Wish I wasn't poor...

I always loved Vladdy (still do) and think it would be sooo incredibly cool to have a piece of art made by him hanging up on the wall.

#2220261 Buyers Remorse

Posted by sleepwalker on 30 October 2011 - 02:15 PM

Speaking of ridiculous, buyer's remorse for Ian White? Nope. He was the best choice for the money at that moment.

Agreed. I think we got a pretty good deal on him. They even mentioned in the game the other night the the Sharks were pretty surprised by the contract amount White signed here, and one of the reasons they didn't try to re-sign him themselves was because they thought he was going to want a lot more than he signed here for.

#2218141 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by sleepwalker on 25 October 2011 - 09:53 AM

This is Prongers own fault for being too tall... If he was shorter, the stick wouldn't have hit him in the eye.

#2212857 10/7 GDT:Senators 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by sleepwalker on 07 October 2011 - 10:13 AM

My prediction:

Wings 27 Sens -4

We beat them so bad that they end up with negative goals.


#2210793 Brendan Smith suspended for 5 games

Posted by sleepwalker on 30 September 2011 - 10:00 AM

Wow. Thats pretty over the top.

Especially considering other players got less for similar hits this preseason AND it wasn't a targeted head shot and Ben Smith was just as at fault as Brendan Smith for trying that fancy toe drag at the last second.

#2210774 Winchester Gets Drilled

Posted by sleepwalker on 30 September 2011 - 08:35 AM

Total props to Volpatti too. He held up when he knew Winchester was down. Some players would have just kept swinging.

Exactly what I was going to post.

#2210540 The Official NHL Suspension Thread

Posted by sleepwalker on 29 September 2011 - 11:20 AM

No surprise here, a hearing has been scheduled for Smith: link.

Some of those comments are beyond ridiculous. People need to use logic instead of getting all over the top emotional without even knowing the facts.

But, I agree with PrarieDog, this will be interesting to see what Shanny does, as it was most definitely a head hit, but the head was not the target and Ben Smith made a sudden movement at the very last second that unintentionally shifted Brendon Smith POA from the shoulder to the head.

#2207803 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

Posted by sleepwalker on 15 September 2011 - 02:35 PM

from what I have read it looks like 38 million plus. Moore's lawyers say the 38 is the estimated loss of income he would have earned over his NHL career, plus more due to the fact that the brain damage he suffered

I think the fact that he thinks he would have made 40mil in the NHL is proof enough that he has massive brain damage, lol.
