#2618699 Holland doesn't expect to be busy this offseason

Posted by TheXym on 02 July 2015 - 11:40 AM

Maybe Holland saw the Babcock departure coming a couple years back and decided to take a longer view to player acquisition to get past the first round AFTER Babs left (coupled with TO missing the playoffs again would be quite irksome to the Leafs loyal). Babs is a good coach, and seems to be a good guy, but his message ran its course here and I think having Blashill will energize the team more than we realize.

Cue Kenny lighting up a cigar, Hannibal Smith style, "I love it when a plan comes together".


#2618696 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by TheXym on 02 July 2015 - 11:36 AM

Despite his acrimonious departure (to some), he had quite a few phenomenal seasons in the Winged Wheel. If he'd stayed a Wing he'd be up there already. First ballot HHOF is a huge feather in the cap and speaks to the league wide respect for his on ice performance, and IMHO carries significantly more weight for the argument than if he'd taken as long as Housley to get in. I'm thinking it happens, as the Winter Classic appearance seemed to help heal some of the old wounds.


#2617801 HHOF #5 Lidstrom head of 2015 class

Yeah, went to the shore for a bit sharing a house with my best friend's family. Life has been good. I've been lurking though.

Did anyone else see the calls from the HHOF on NHL Network? Lidstrom was classy as expected, Fedorov was a bit off color, but my wife and I LOL'd.


#2607549 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

I hope I have front row seats to the Babcock/Keenan stare down.  It will be epic.


The Undertaker would wilt from jealousy of the death stares being traded in such a showdown.


#2607278 TSN Play of the Year

Posted by TheXym on 11 May 2015 - 10:29 PM

I forgot about this, I thought he had just mistaken Latvia for Slovakia.
HaAnd was talking about the all star online voting stuff.


Nope, I have a knack for remembering useless trivia at times. What FlashyG said (great explanation as well). The Oshie beating was quite amusing, as was the crush in the finals last year.


#2606601 Phil Kessel blockbuster

Posted by TheXym on 07 May 2015 - 04:57 PM

Maybe the Canes think a lack of Tim Horton's will help Kessel keep the weight of.


Well played, but isn't Krispy Kreme based out of the Carolinas? Their glazed donuts blow away anything Tim Horton's bakes.

Plenty of time to get it back.

Keep the pressure, but get the rebounds, FFS, we need to score. The boys are carrying most of the play.

If Tatar didn't lose he puck last shift he'd have had an open net.

Nice feed by Andy there. Keep this sustained pressure and Bishop will crack.

Good kill.

Controlling most of the play so far. Enjoying a dram of the Macallan. Watched the first on the iPad due to finishing grilling some ribs and eating with the family.

Let's Go Wings!


#2603065 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by TheXym on 29 April 2015 - 12:07 AM

Absolute joke of a suspension. After the Palat hit and the double team on Abs were let go, not to mention the Subban BC two hander that broke a guy's wrist and they suspend this, you've got to say the fix is on.

Quintal makes the old Burke wheel of justice seem logical and competent. I hope the Wings come out in game 7 and kick the s*** out of TB, on the scoreboard as well as physically to the point that the Bolts need a M.A.S.H. unit dispatched to Ameli arena. Babcock giving Cooper a stone cold stunner in the handshake line for the finishing touch.

It is way early, plenty of time to get it back.

Good honest eval by Babs on CNBC.

Morrow holding Smith, no call.
