#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

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

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.

#2207778 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

Posted by sleepwalker on 15 September 2011 - 12:31 PM

But it's always easier to sue for money...it's the American way.

Its the Canadian way too, apparantly. ;)

#2207396 Will Ericsson Earn His Raise?

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 September 2011 - 02:28 PM

He damn well better earn his raise this year, cause as it stands right now, he is sof****** insanely overpaid with his new contract, its not even funny.

#2206887 McCrimmon, Salei on board Russian plane crash

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 September 2011 - 10:52 AM

I want to just say how sad this made me.
Especially for the nearly newborn child of Ruslan. That is awful how that child will never know their parent.

I also wish the headline for this thread was about the team tragedy and not the few people that we are supposed to care about. It implies that we wouldn't care about it unless there were former Wings on the plane. That irks me a little. Not to cause a big to do, I just want to remind people that there are 38 families that will suffer in this. As well as one BIG hockey family.

I agree, but on that note, lets not forget about the flight crew members as well. There were 44 or 45 people total onboard I beleive, not just the 38 from Lokomotiv. The crew members families are suffering just as much I'm sure...
