#2300761 2012 World Ice Hockey Championships

Posted by evilzyme on 11 May 2012 - 07:02 PM

Sweden was playing really good in 1st but in 2nd Russians got under their skin and Swedes lost it totally. game was lost basically when it got tied 3-3, but I didn't expect such blowout.

Franzen needs to calm down. Yemelin really got the best of him. same goes for Landeskog who took even dumber penalty.

Fasth and Enroth are perfectly fine if the team in front of them stays focused. it was for the first 30 minutes.

PS. Eriksson still rocks. and Malkin is, skills aside, f* goon.

I'm sorry but Yemelin dove like it was frickin Olympic diving. They didn't deserve either penalty that tied the game at 3-3. I would most likely get frustrated if they were calling obvious diving calls like that. The game was an absolute gongshow.

#2300662 Report: Jagr to test free agent market

Posted by evilzyme on 11 May 2012 - 08:47 AM

What's just insane to me is that not even that long ago he said how much he absolutely adored Philly and would never regret coming to them. He stated on his blog that the ice time he was receiving was absolutely nothing to him and he didn't mind. Now? Now, he's pissed and wants to find an organization that will feed him the minutes he wants. Okay man... you're about bat s*** crazy Jagr. So hypocritical. "I mean, I don't get the big deal about Sidney Crosby" continues to talk about Crosby for the next 20 pages. Dude's a hot mess.

#2300643 The Astuteness of Paul Holmgren.

Posted by evilzyme on 11 May 2012 - 07:40 AM

Well, as much as Bryz just straight up sucked it in the first round with MAF, he did keep them in games in the second round. Philly needs to realize they have some giant holes in their defense and they can't expect their tendy to always be there to save your ass. Now, I understand he has a beautiful contract and is paid to be that guy, but history says he will never be that guy. I'm not even sure why and how Philly thought Bryz was going to be an all-star goalie by just coming to Philly. Holmgren is absolutely right though, he should focus on play more than just making retarded comments. The media is half to blame though, they've been down his throat trying to get the funny quotes from him. The guy is barely more advanced than Pasha when talking to the American media.

**edit** someone care to explain how the hell this got neg'ed rofl

#2300596 Bettman wants to tout the "Original 12" now, haha

This would be the biggest slap in the face to the O6 teams.... I can't even equate words right now....

#2300499 #7 Washington Capitals vs. #1 New York Rangers

Posted by evilzyme on 10 May 2012 - 09:44 AM

it was kinda funny first time, but I seriously think league will suspend the guy for this some day. they put a lot of effort to promote the game and gain media momentum and Tortorella is ruining it all.

Well if the media didn't keep trying to get answers out of Torts that they want, so they can spin it on him, he would probably respect them back. Listen, the media tries to DESTROY and skew the words of Torts, they set him up for failure. They ask rhetorical stupid questions, so he answers with smart ass answers. I would be the same way if they kept doing it OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER, And.... over. Hey John, why did you call that icing? Oh, i'm not sure, maybe because my guys were frickin tired and I didn't want to get destroyed in my zone. OH? So thats how you coach. Come on man, don't act like Torts is the bad guy all the time. You would eventually get fed up with it too.

#2300192 Just to change it up a bit...

I don't even think you can predict a coach situation. Babcock has a nice contract to live out, inwhich he says he hopes to continue with Detroit. He also states that hopefully he won't be coaching 10 years from now, or atleast he won't be in Detroit. Back to the topic though, predicting a firing or contract expiration of a coach, ontop of who would be available is just a silly question to ask in my book. I love your motivation, but I think you may want to slow down on all these threads :yowza:

#2300183 Suter most likely out of Nashville

Posted by evilzyme on 08 May 2012 - 07:40 PM

I never said Hudler over parise. I said Hudler AND Jones over Parise. Would have 2 players, more goals and more grit. Now before others read into things that have not been said, let me clear a couple of things up. There is a difference between great and good. Or stars and solid. parise is a good solid player. But is parise a top 15 forward in the NHL player? No. But, to his credit, he is about to get paid like one. He also slows down dramaticly in the PO's. In 37 career PO games, he has 13 goals. About 1 g per 3 games. In the regular season he is closer to 1 per 2 games. In the end, it the playoffs that matter. He is just like most of our forwards in the fact he is not big enough to maintain his productivity in the PO's. When the games get tighter, tougher and more physical-IE playoff games, smaller players see their production drop further-unless then have other big wingers to create space. We as an organization have plenty of small forwards. We have very few big forwards, and the ones we do are old. Doing more of the same and expecting different results is foolish.

DUDE WHAT?! Have you watched these playoffs? Have you seen Zach Parise? The guy is on fire, he is all over the ice, he is working his ass off. Stop using previous stats, jesus christ, welcome to the future, the past doesn't matter. The Mule destroyed the playoffs previously, guess where he was the past two seasons? Oh. My. Bad. What boils down is playoff performance, and Zach Parise can bring that also. He's a GREAT player, he isn't horrible defensively, if anything hes pretty damn awesome at the two way game. I just don't know if we're watching the same Zach Parise, captain of the New Jersey Devils.

#2300111 Chances of landing Parise?

Posted by evilzyme on 08 May 2012 - 02:18 PM

I said 30%. With NJ's situation, its a good bet that he'll leave the Devils, however there will be a lot of teams interested in him and someone (it only takes one) will give him a stupid offer like $9 mil a year for 7 years and he'll be out of our hands. Holland won't overpay. The only way he comes to Detroit is if he doesn't care about getting the most money he can and he recognizes that his style of play really makes him a great fit for our team.

Having said that, I had a dream I got a Parise Winter Classic jersey for Christmas. It was a #90 on the back. So let's hope it was more than a dream. :D

I respect that your dream respects retired numbers.

#2300102 Red Wings Way Of Rebuilding?

Posted by evilzyme on 08 May 2012 - 02:02 PM

regular season points don't mean what they once did. Getting to 100 was a hard thing to do once apon a time. not anymore. The last 3 years in the playoffs tell the real story. 2 round twice, 1st round once. with the second oldest team in the NHL this is going to continue for a couple of more years.

No, regular season points still mean as much as they did. Seeding, home ice advantage, lottery, hell even making the damn big show. Please, don't tell anyone that "regular season points" don't matter from what they "used" to. If anything, please explain how much more regular season points meant back in "the day". Are you concerned because of the parity? Is that how they don't matter? I think this first round exit was the final stab into what needs to be done. After three unsuccessful postseasons (in OUR mindframe) I think we finally need to start pulling the trigger on the bigger acquisitions. We need more depth in our forwards and it showed big time during the injury bug and post-season. I think Babcock said it the best when he simply stated, "once we lost helm, it destroyed it. it made players change their roles and change their lines, it just caused people to go in the wrong places." THAT, is our bigger enemy right now. And the fact that we need a bonified sniper. Which is where Zach Parise comes in, with his legitimate scoring and yes say it with me, his defensive skills also.

#2299790 What Lidstrom NEEDS to Do...

Posted by evilzyme on 07 May 2012 - 11:48 AM

All i'm saying is, we keep throwing out Suter and Parise like it's the only two people we should be pursuing. Parise is currently on a very good NJ Devils team that is about to go to the Eastern Conference Finals, i'm not sure how big that window is anymore that he was sliding out. Suter? Hell, his team just destroyed the "potential" team he wanted to sign if the management didn't show they were serious about a cup run. But, his management DID show that they were serious about a cup run, they were heavy at the trade deadline, they pushed for Radulov to come back for the post season. The management is showing they want to keep him, ontop that we aren't the only contender for either of these guys.

*edit* with signing a backup, hell we need one, but we also don't want to break the bank while doing so. Tendies will up this offseason, but with a bunch of times striving to get their hands on them. It will be harder to find a valuable backup goaltender. Joey Mac would fit the suit, but with his health I wouldn't feel like he would be ready to take a workload off of Jimmy.

#2298989 Gary Bettman is the worst thing to happen to hockey

Posted by evilzyme on 03 May 2012 - 04:22 PM

As long as Bettman is still commissioner the article is pertinent. Why are you overwhelmed by the article too difficult for you to comprehend?

I was being sarcastic due to your lack of any ground with your original post. "Gary Bettman is the worst thing to happen to hockey", while many would agree with you, I clicked on the thread hoping to read exactly why you would think he is the worst thing to happen to hockey. You know, considering that the article is from 2009, we've probably had a conversation or two about that article. So, when I click a thread like this, I expect some type of background or basis for a statement like the title. Just sayin'

The bleacher report is the biggest joke to begin with, not to mention as stated earlier the article is from 2009. It's poorly written and overall is a horrible article. I'm overwhelmed at your standpoint on this article also, next time we pull some articles from years in the past, atleast state some type of ground for conversation instead of, "BETTMAN RUINED HOCKEY, GO."
