#2571162 Next Number to be retired

Posted by number9 on 16 February 2015 - 04:03 PM

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

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

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.

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

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.

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...

Welcome to the internet

Don't like his reporting? Don't read his stuff.

Don't like Kips posts? Don't read them.

I think Smith could be better than Q. They had to pair Q with DDK because he was a liability anywhere else.

And then he makes a bonehead play...


You can eyeball those too!

No I don't.  Nothing in his career suggests otherwise, including his "super good" season last year where he put up...wait for it...nearly identical production (with more minutes) than he's putting up this year (with less).  And, if the EVIDENCE I've provided over and over and over to discredit your asinine opinion are any indication, if he was forced to start in the defensive zone as much as those guys he'd almost certainly score MUCH LESS. 


Of course, I came to that conclusion using fancy stats that you admittedly don't understand.  Clearly not as good a way to draw conclusions as the reliable old eyeball test. 


My eyeball tests tells me that Luke Glendening is on the cusp of a offensive breakout. 


WOO HOO!  It's an opinion.  It can't be baseless or inaccurate...cuz it's subjective!


Nah man the word test makes it official. FACTS


Unfortunately most of my eye-ball tests have determined I need to wear glasses while I drive :(

#2569783 So, Evander Kane...

Posted by number9 on 11 February 2015 - 12:34 PM

I don't understand this trade from Buffalo's point of view. They are rebuilding and a guy with serious attitude problems should be the last thing they should want alongside their up and coming players. Bad trade Murray


Yeah I can't believe Kane cost that much after all the issues.Have fun playing for another sucky team Evander

But he still has these states:

Alabama; Arkansas; Washington, D.C.; Guam; Hawaii; Kentucky; Montana; Nevada; New Hampshire; New Jersey; New Mexico; Ohio; Texas; Vermont; Virginia; West Virginia; and Wyoming.


Only 4 of which have hockey teams..

Most of these states don't surprise me
