#2106660 All-Star Draft Discussion

Posted by sleepwalker on 28 January 2011 - 05:37 PM

Anyone else like me and looking forward to the draft more than the actual game?

#2104655 Kulemin got crunched

Posted by sleepwalker on 24 January 2011 - 11:02 PM

Except Kulemin never threw a punch. Pushing =/= punching. And he never dropped the gloves, while Gleason (who I like) did drop his gloves.

Yeah he did. He threw 2 punches. Just becasue his gloves were on, doesn't mean they weren't punches.

Sidenote; And anyone who has been punched in the face with gloves before knows that s*** hurts a lot of times more than getting hit with a bare fist. (obviously, not in this case, lol)

On other forums people are calling it a cheap-shot. To me, it was within the code. However, I expect Gleason to answer for himself when he sees Orr, Rosehill, or Brown next.

What, Leafs forums? lol

You start throwing punches like a big boy, you gotta be prepared to back that s*** up like a big boy too. Kulemin learned an important lesson today.

#2104344 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

By the end of this week, I can almost promise you that there will be some clearer direction in this whole thing. Until then, everyone should just take a chill pill, unwad their panties, and just wait.

Lol, I didn't see anyone freaking out or getting their panties in a knot. No need to get so overdramatic. ;)

I like Wangs delusional response;

"I don't see why somebody who has this opportunity would not want to play and fulfill his contract. It's nuts, right. I don't understand any of it"

Uh...you really don't see why an aging goalie who wanted to make, what, who knows, could be one last run at the cup, wouldn't want to play for a team who has no chance of making the playoffs? You don't understand why he wouldn't want to leave his family and the warmth of sunny California to come to gloomy, cold ass New York to play for a team he thinks sucks and doesn't want to play for, won't make the finals, for a mere quarter mil, when dude has tens of millions already?



#2102643 Komisarek in trouble with the LAPD

Posted by sleepwalker on 22 January 2011 - 11:36 AM

Oh, my. I read "hit woman during road trip" and thought it was a hit and run.

She slapped him first. Sauce for the goose and all that. I probably would have done the same had he lifted me (assuming he didn't get a hernia), but I would expect that if I hit someone that I'd be getting it back shortly.

If he gets charged, she should too as she hit first.

No she didn't, lets get real here. He assaulted her first by grabbing her and lifting her into the air.

It'd be one thing if he just said some flirty type stuff to her and she hit him, but he physically assaulted her in the middle of a fight and that is is prompted her to slap him.

#2100750 Wings Negotiating w/ Nabokov

Posted by sleepwalker on 20 January 2011 - 05:31 PM

Meh. This is all for nothing. Someone will claim him, it sucks.

Just like with Wellwood, and Svatos.

Whether we get Nabby or not, I'm sure Holland has a plan. Or else, he wouldn't waste his time with it.

It's called a different perspective.

People don't want that though, they only want to hear what they agree with.

Why do you think Fox News and MSNBC are still on the air? ;)

I don't know the reason for the ban, but it seems some folks are grumbling about consistency.

Well... this IS a board dedicated to a team in the NHL, so they are probably just taking a cue from the NHL refs when it comes to consistency. ;)

#2094659 Kostopoulos suspended 6 games

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 January 2011 - 05:27 PM

reading the calgary forums has just made me dumber.

Yeah, I read some comments on one of the forums and found the number of "the league NEVER hands out discipline unless a Red Wing is hit" comments funny. Its like some people just hate the Wings so much it makes them retarded and causes them to make statements like that.

#2093712 Thrasher's Eager suspended 4 games

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 January 2011 - 08:09 PM

I liked the hysterical girl in the comment section screaming about how Kostopoulos should get life in prison for last night.

#2092046 Florida screwed by officials

Posted by sleepwalker on 06 January 2011 - 03:10 PM

So what I don't understand is why Toronto didn't call down and inform them that the puck was in thet net.

The ref probably would have just made some excuse to save face anyway and still called it no goal.

Remember that on the Brad May goal, Toronto did call down and tell LaRue that it was most definitely a good goal, but LaRue argued about it and refused to reverse his call, because his massive ego would not let him admit he was wrong, even though Toronto, the people looking at the play from every angle, told him he was most definitely wrong on the phone. s***, even Mike Murphey did a pregame interview the next game basically apologizing and admitting LaRue was wrong. And that s*** NEVER happens!

(yes, I'm still a bit bitter)

#2091487 John Keating is lazy and sucks

I'm not saying people can't be converted, but to make a sweeping generalization about the only people who don't like beer are people who haven't tried beer is kinda ridiculous.

So reword your post so you don't sound so stupid. What a ridiculous generalization. Maybe the most ridiculous I've ever heard. Congrats on that anyway.

Perhaps you should work on your reading comprehension skills a bit, eh?

I said, and I quote "ALMOST all people I'VE TALKED TO"

I didn't make any sweeping generalization, I clearly stated that what I said was just based on people I have personally talked to. I never said all either, I said almost all.

#2091469 Red Wings Tough Guy?

Posted by sleepwalker on 05 January 2011 - 04:34 PM

You want Hudler to start fighting? :blink:

You realize the kid is like 5'2" and 100 pounds soaking wet, and his head would likely explode on the first punchto the face he received, right?

#2087785 Question about the average american's view on NHL

Posted by sleepwalker on 31 December 2010 - 02:03 PM

How come there are articles about it, journalists etc saying for the sport to grow among the general population in america they must remove fighting?

Because some journalists are clueless morons?

Hell, if anything, to make it catch on with the "average American", you'd have to have MORE fights. At the very minimum one a game, I'd guess.
