Lol most accurate post in here.


Right?! Girls are inferior! Crosby's a whiner so let's call him Cindy! Guys club!

Seriously though, it sucks but we actually have some depth right now.


#2542565 Your hockey-rituals before season openers

Off the record, Canada has the best national anthem IMO. Just plain fun to sing. Always wished it was Oh America instead.

Now that I've admitted that it's mandatory that I insult the shinyness of your money and also you say about funny

Murica


Hmm I feel you missed a monopoly reference somewhere in there?

All I want to know is this:

 

1. Who the hell does Alfredsson play with when he comes back?

2. How is Cleary going to get those 10 games?

3. Why hasn’t Quincey sucked yet?

1: "Datsyuk has 'X' amount of takeaways this season, and 'Y' amount led to goals"
 
2: "Datsyuk Howard has 'X' amount of takeaways giveaways this season, and 'Y' amount led to goals"
 
3. "Datsyuk Smith had 'X' amount of takeaways giveaways last season, and 'Y' amount led to goals"
 
If you are fine with two of those stats, but claim the second one is just 'made-up'.....you might have a bias!


How many does Howard have now?

Are we still counting GAA with under a minute?


You have to average it with the bad pass goal coefficient. ;)

Fear the beard. Looking foward to seeing the dvr of it.

Missing game. How is  Weiss Jason Williams? Guessing pretty crap.


I almost sprayed coffee through my nose in the checkout line. Well played, sir.


#2542359 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by TheXym on 18 October 2014 - 08:58 PM

Good point to consider, but Q has been better lately (I haven't seen tomight's game yet, but it's on the dvr). I just hope there isn't a trade just to make a trade a la Paul Holmgren.


#2542175 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by Dabura on 18 October 2014 - 05:50 PM

I like what our blue line has shown through these first four games. I like this emphasis on low-event hockey. I like the emphasis on structure and set plays. I like that every player seems to know what he's doing, what he'd like to do next, and what he'll do if things don't go according to plan. I like that when something does go wrong and the puck ends up in our net, it's because of a simple turnover, so all Babcock has to say is "That? Don't do that." I like that the D are jumping into the attack, that we're showing some physicality in our end, that The Forbidden Play - the breakout pass through the middle of the ice - seems to be throwing off the opposition. I like that we're no longer an adventure in our end, that we've calmed down, matured, grown, flat-out improved.

 

I also like Jeff Petry. But when I look at our blue line...to me, it doesn't scream "Could really use Jeff Petry." I think he'd settle in as a good #3 or #4, and, frankly, that's not what we need. Certainly not if it costs us Helm. His shortcomings are familiar to us - mental lapses in the d-zone, soft plays, inconsistency. He was a strong possession player last season, basically serving as Edmonton's #1 defenseman, but I don't know if adding him moves our needle closer to true Cup contention.

He was very good before he left too.  He had a couple costly turnovers in the playoffs before he left, which everyone blew out of proportion, and so he's not looked upon favorable in hindsight.  By every standard he was an exceptionally good investment during his time with the Wings.


Left Handed Defenseman. He fits in perfect!

#2542083 Lucic has a meltdown as Bruins get smacked by Habs...again

Posted by kliq on 18 October 2014 - 09:57 AM

I 100% agree that the Seguin trade was a bad trade on Boston's end, but it wasn't just a "hockey" trade. I remember at the time Seguin's character was being questioned regarding his supposed late night partying.

http://www.thestar.c...ng_reports.html

 

I think Boston's issues this year are a combination of losing Iginla, Boychuck, Krejci's injury, possibly a regression due to age, facing good competition, but most likely just a slump. If they are playing this way in a month, Bruins fans should maybe be concerned. Its just a few games into an 82 game season.

 

I think losing Thornton has absolutely nothing to do with it.
