In Topic: Ilya Kovalchuk announces retirement

26 March 2015 - 11:06 AM

Not playing for the Devils is not playing for the Devils. Whether sitting on his ass or working in some unrelated business or playing for a non-competing hockey team on the other side of the world makes no difference. None of it has any impact on the Devils. 

 

I think he just means that he didn't simply retire and be done with the sport, he retired so he could go play somewhere else.  The Devils wanted out of that contract too so it was mutually beneficial at the time.

Oh I realize that. Just saying it's not the end of the world some places who aren't used to snow make it out to be. Seen cities fully shut down for only a few inches of snow. Some people do get scared driving in those conditions though, even up here. But if your confident enough, should'nt be a problem at all.

 

It's not just the people though.  For one, places that don't get snow often usually deal with more ice.  Ice is much more dangerous than snow.  Secondly, the cities are not equipped to deal with it.  No salt trucks, etc.  People also don't have winter tires in the South.  Northerners just like to think they are superior for some reason.  Not to mention I've been in Michigan in winter, nobody could drive in snow there either.


In Topic: What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

I find this hilarious since I name my hamsters after Red Wings.

 

That's what I thought this thread was about.


If she talking about Datsyuk as dick, she's right! That dick steals the puck from the other team all the time, never gives them a chance!

 

No puck no fun


In Topic: 3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

You always say this :lol:

 

First game back after a grueling road trip is usually a let-down game. Hopefully the excitement the new guys bring has the team jumping early.

 

5 - 3 Wings.

 

Hopefully since we ended in Nashville (as opposed to West Coast) and that game was 4 days ago the jet lag isn't so bad.  Games after the west coast road trip are usually stinkers, so here's to hoping we shook the rust in NSH.

 

Good to be back in the D too.  JLA should be rocking tonight.

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