#2571527 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by number9 on 17 February 2015 - 03:23 PM

If he doesn't drink anymore, he sure sounds like he does.

Then maybe other color guys should start drinking? Cause Mick is one of the best, if not the best, in the business right now. He's a hall of fame commentator easy

But yeah, distract your jumping to conclusions about the mans drinking by attacking his ability to do his job.

#2571478 Teemu Pulkkinen called back up

Posted by number9 on 17 February 2015 - 12:15 PM

Ya that crossed my mind ... It won't happen but if he scores like 10 goals in 6 games i think holland would back out lol

But ya definetly a possibility ... But seeing how careful we are in trading the young guys I'd expect him not to get traded and for us to end up getting a zybanek michalek type dman at the deadline

We'll see


What would it take to get Michalek? One of Jensen? Turgeon? Frk? or Ehn?

#2571477 Why are the Wings Afraid to Block Shots?

Posted by number9 on 17 February 2015 - 12:10 PM

Some coaches probably prefer that their goalies can see the shot/puck. Babs might be one of them. Constantly diving in front of pucks can lead to injuries and unintentional goalie screens. It's a trade off thing I think. Less blocked shots, but Howard can track the puck better.

Yeah he's got celiacs, so he can't have gluten.
I don't see him drinking too many beers anymore


It's amazing how people just come in here and assume he's some kind of drunk. I hope I'm listening to Ken and Mick for many more years.

Mickey is a legendary color man. Those who speak ill of him shall receive no butt pats.
Can mickey drink? I thought he had bad stomach/intestinal problems?

Hot new prospect out of the Swedish Elite League. He's only 190 lbs. Though so he's not worth a second look.

Oh he's a foreigner? I likely wouldn't feel very connected to the team if we drafted someone like that anyway

I thought it was a reference to Lidstrom being godlike on defense, and the umlaut was because he was so awesome that he was f'n metal. \m/

I guess McCarty should have an umlaut over the A?

Anyone ever notice that the Habs logo looks like a toilet seat?

Carry on...

#2571139 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by number9 on 16 February 2015 - 02:29 PM

I think their knowledgable fans really deserve better, the obvious "I jump on the players bandwagon when he's good but will give him hell if he makes a mistake" bandwagoners don't. Franson just talked about the whole pressure there, I mean having 30 guys in the room even after practice ? That's insane like freaking insane.
Also I'm not sure what Shanahan is doing there, they've acquired another cocky heavily undersized kid ind Leipsic...are they trying to become the smurfs ? Instead of such a hard hitting fun to watch in your face team, which made the playoffs and almost beat Boston with that type of game ?Personally I wouldn't trade for or draft anybody under at least ~ 190 lbs.

You wouldn't draft anyone under 190 lbs?

I'll stop and let you reevaluate that for a second

Who is this godstrom fellow with weird dots above the o?

Actually, you made it worse... "People who don't think Callahan won't amount to anything" = double negative. You're basically saying people who think Callahan is going to do well are stupid, or haven't watched enough of him.

Also, I think he was referring to the Mantha part.


:baby:  Forgot how to LGW. Fixed again lol

#2571037 Steve Montador Found Dead At His Home

Posted by number9 on 15 February 2015 - 10:02 PM

I can't believe how many of you feel comfortable predicting the cause of death before facts are out. Whatever it is, hope he's in a better place now.

#2570847 DD starting to get the love....

Posted by number9 on 15 February 2015 - 12:17 AM

last year I started saying that Dekeyser was our best defensive defenseman. Now others have joined the bandwagon. a very nice story by the Hockey Writers.


of course I can't get the link to work......... Just go to www.thehockeywriters.com and then look up the story.......


TheHockeyWriters.com is literally fans writing blog posts for free. There is zero credible journalism going on. There's one guy who works for them that is credible, and this is not him.


I love how you framed your OP around how YOU said this, and now others agree. Classic lol

#2570841 2/14 GDT : Jets 5 at Red Wings 4 (SO)

Posted by number9 on 14 February 2015 - 11:19 PM

Z might as well go back to being a high volume shooter. First line is not doing too hot lately... Disappointing loss. 

It was close, could've gone either way. Effort looked good to me.

Just a heads up to everyone who hasn't followed him since he left.

Before this happened he was playing on the top line with Benn and Seguin, or maybe it was Spezza, I can't remember. But I've been real happy to him get big minutes. Always thought he was underrated.

#2570328 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Being an ass online to someone who devotes huge chunks of his spare time to deliver news and write articles to us for free? yeah classy move...
