#2565847 NHL Player Tracking System

Posted by TheXym on 24 January 2015 - 10:44 PM

Can it track a bad pass by a goalie?


That would be the "JUCK F***ING POTT"! ;)

In all seriousness, I do agree with roboturner that using it for determining if a puck actually crossed the goal line could be a good thing. Heck, anything to offset the incompetence of on-ice officials would be good.


#2565686 Franzen on IR

But you have evidence to suspect him of "emotional issues"?

 

This whole thread has turned hokey.  Why don't we all stick to Franzen and hockey and not try to assassinate/dissect his character.  Regardless of how we feel about him on the ice, there is absolutely NOTHING to suggest he's not a decent, committed, hard working, emotionally stable person.

 

3 outta 4 ain't bad.

See now I just can't help but think that he likes it.

I guess this tread gives a new meaning to beating a dead hose (mule)

#2565670 Franzen on IR

I think he has emotional issues. Wasn't it mentioned a few years ago that he was struggling with depression? I've had a job that required a lot of travel and I struggled with those issues too. Give the guy some slack.

 

Fedorov had personal issues too. I remember Bowman snatching a heckler's sign that criticized Fedorov's contract dispute during one of the '90's playoff runs. He didn't want him to lose his confidence.

 

Think of your own performance at work. Do you always perform at the highest level? Especially when you are down about something? No one has any evidence to suspect him of malfeasance.

so... lazy mule is always lazy, but especially when he's sitting on IR nursing a fake injury.

 

 

Let me amend that:  "So... you're willing to defend a lazy mule*, but not when he's sitting on IR nursing a fake injury?"

 

*just noticed that you claim to defend Franzen, not that I'm going to go back into other threads to check for legitimacy of such claim.

 

Look, I'm not trying to get all up on your case about this... and certainly there are players that are willing to play through pain and injury, and Franzen isn't that guy... but do you honestly believe that trainers, doctors, and Ken Holland would allow Franzen to just sit on IR because he wants to nurse the injury?  Sure, they might let him sit there because they want to keep him on IR -- whether it be cap or chemistry issues, but I can't imagine you're going to let a guy like that, if healthy, to nurse his fake wounds. Offensive struggles or not.




#2565649 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by Desert Rat on 23 January 2015 - 03:58 AM

That right there sums it up perfectly. Fans in general tend to hold on to the bad moments for way too long and forget the good ones. A player can have a game where he makes an amazing play to set up a goal, and then he makes an untimely turnover... Which one do most fans remember? Add on top of that, a player that has already been labeled, it's not easy to drop that label...


Like Quincey. If he has a rare bad play this season my Twitter blows up with all the hate. It took him a while to adjust but he's reliable and it's nice to see. I think he's a big part of our surprising defense this year.
I wish we could land Yandle. Do we really have a true offensive defenseman in the pipes other than Sproul? I wish we could part with some defensive D prospects to snag him.

As long as we have this guy, we're always contenders.

Posted by e_prime on 23 January 2015 - 07:05 AM

His -12 is unacceptable. It's tough watching that much money tied up in such a streaky player.  :scared:

 

For the umpteenth million time:  IT'S NOT THAT MUCH MONEY.

 

Perhaps I got carried away. I do believe these things do happen but a concussion is a very serious thing

 

What happens:  Players faking injuries?  ...or concussions? 

Tell us how you really feel, and please, feel free to drag Samuelsson and his weak IR stints into the conversation too.  ...or how about Weiss and all of his faking?

I hate to say this but if anybody is likely to use concussion symptoms as an excuse to sit on IR for a little longer than he needs, it's Franzen. He takes a significant amount of time every year from a concussion. His brain would be goop if his concussions were that serious. Abby comes back from a concussion in a week cause he actually wants to play. Missing 3-4 weeks each year from a concussion would be very serious and questioning continuing to play.
It's like when Babs called out Helm for sitting on IR all the time (never said this exactly) and then he comes in and plays the next game. Most of the time injuries like tears, soreness and concussions are players discretion and some players really want to play and some don't

I don't think you hated to say that at all, if you did you might have at least tried to check your accuracy.

 

Prior to last season, Franzen hasn't had a concussion since the '08 playoffs, nor had he missed 3-4 weeks for anything other than the knee surgery.




#2565617 Ray Whitney announces retirement

Posted by Nightfall on 22 January 2015 - 07:43 PM

He got zero media attention because he worked his ass off and didn't say much outside of that.  The guys that get the huge media attention, like Evander "more money" Kane, usually are doing something outside of hockey that get attention.

I honestly didnt realize that he still played, much less for the Avs.

 

He is their leading scorer, sadly.

#2565446 What should we do with the Monster?

I feel weird calling a skinny Swedish dude, Monster.  You'd think he was 6'8 and weighed 280 lbs.
