Good article on why San Jose was looking to trade him and the kind of production we could potentially get in him...

#2676714 Dustin Brown losing captaincy

Posted by kickazz on 28 May 2016 - 07:50 AM

Well Brown among other things is one of the biggest divers in the league. He really shouldn't be a captain leading the way unless it's meant to show the players how to dive.


#2676445 16/17 offseason

Posted by krsmith17 on 23 May 2016 - 05:41 PM

I don't think I've ever disagreed with so much in one post... Aside from the first sentence I disagree with pretty much everything here...

We don't need a Russell or Hamhuis, aka mid tier defenseman. We already have plenty of them on the team now, not to mention any of the kids that are out of options this coming season that could play the same role a hell of a lot cheaper.

Quincey played decent this season as well as last, but he needs to go to make room for Ouellet and Sproul.

Richards should be gone as well. The only way I see him returning is if we completely strike out on free agency, and Staal isn't the solution either. Both would be a mistake in my opinion, as I think both Larkin and Athanasiou would be better suited to take over the top 6 center positions. Maybe not short term, but certainly looking long term.

Switch Abdelkader back to center? In the top 6? That would be terrible... He's much better suited as a winger and would get destroyed as a top 6 center. Zetterberg should also be switched to the wing or 3rd line center getting limited ice time. No way should he be our number one center next season.

Helm is terrible? Seriously? No, he's not a top 6 guy and shouldn't be used there, but he is one of the best bottom 6 / penalty killers in the league. Miller is a must? Miller is f***ing awful compared to Helm.

Pulkkinen on the top line over Larkin, Mantha, Nyquist, Tatar or pretty much anyone? Marchenko on the top pair and Green as the number 7?

The fact that you don't have any of Nyquist, Tatar or Green in your lineup is funny enough, but that you say they're "almost impossible to move" is hilarious...

I'm not trying to s*** on your post too much, but I just have no idea how you could be serious about any of this...

Apparently Kazakhstan is not as good as Tampa Bay.


#2673334 We all know if you're a Hawks fan your upbringing was questionable

Well he's probably only been riding in those seats since '09. Doesn't understand the proper etiquette the way a seasoned vet does ;)

Really though, good on you for giving up your seat.. And good luck with your surgery.


#2673326 We all know if you're a Hawks fan your upbringing was questionable

Posted by Jersey Wing on 24 April 2016 - 07:36 AM

Last night (and I'm three weeks away from a partial knee replacement) I see this guy, 20-25, you can't tell sometimes with Blackhawks fans they've had such hard lives and run-ins with the law. He's sitting with his gym bag in front of him instead of offering his seat to one of the two ladies on either side of him. I got up and offered my seat to a pregnant woman and my knee hurts like hell this morning. This guy, well, it's upbringing. Either you do or you don't. The guy with the Wings t-shirt on (after wearing it proudly even in defeat at Shake Shack in Madison Square Park last night) gives up his seat, the Hawks fan does not.

 

Which fanbase is Goofus and which is Gallant in the Hilites Magazine of hockey?

I feel embarrassed for the fan base that this post is even necessary, but this is the career APPRECIATION thread, google it if you don't understand the definition. From this post forward, anything negative, anyone wanting to debate his decision, your post will be removed and you will receive a warning. Show some class for the man that has given us so much over the years and pay your respect, that's the purpose of this thread. Anything beyond that is off topic. Thank you.

I'd say it sounds like there's maybe a 40% chance pav is back.. I have a gut feeling he will be but I won't blame him if he's ready to leave.. I'll just be really really sad.


Also, I vote pav goes into the rafters for sure.

Looking at this thread now.., I'm sad. Sergei and Datsyuk should both have their numbers retired next year in the Joe's final season.
