Kyle F'n Quincey!! Two sensational passes from Pavel and Larkin to set it up. Keep it going, boys!

Nice rip by Jurco to draw first blood! Heck of a play by Goose to set it up.

I go away to a choral festival and you guys break the site? Thanks to Matt and anyone else behind the scenes who got the site back up and running.

#2650830 ROY according to LGW

Larkin probably helped his case for ROY this weekend. The game doesn't count in the stats, but breaking the fastest skater record and three assists in the tourney probably got him on the radar of some journalists who didn't have him there before.

How crazy will it be if his teammates keep setting him up and the other goalies are easy on him just to piss off the league by causing him to win the MVP award?

Just the right amount of crazy, if you ask me..... I'm thrilled for the guy. I hope he gets back in the show after all of this. I'd love to have known what was going through Bettman and Daly's minds when Scott got the first goal, then the second, then the MVP.

Love John Scott getting the MVP. A great up yours to the league office. (I did sort of predict the MVP in another read, but I don't think he goals he got were gimmes though.)

But parsecs is a unit of distance  :w00t:The camera work here is making me dizzy

Agreed, but I was just quoting the film. ;)

Epic all-star moment I'd like to see now that Larkin has the fastest skater record -

Phil Kessel is skating with the puck in the O-zone, Larkin strips him of the puck, goes back on a breakaway and buries it. Brent "Chewy" Burns is mic' d up - "He just did the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs!"

#2650558 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

Posted by TheXym on 30 January 2016 - 10:08 AM

I have to say the extension of his arms after the hit, coupled by his avoiding of the player, and there being no following of the concussion protocol are definitely factors that make me think it was intentional. If he was "woozy" then the lack of following the concussion protocol is another big, but separate, issue.

That linesman had no idea he was going to be hit, and no expectation of being hit. While I may have a less than favorable opinion of certain officials, I would hate to see anyone, even Halloran, blindsided like that. Yes, I know I have spewed venom at Halloran in some GDT's (blown calls of a chronic nature will get me going since I loathe incompetence or bias). The league has to suspend Wideman otherwise it could become open season on officials. The suspension rule is there for a reason. They need to protect their officials. There are other ways to handle anger with the officials. I remember Chelios towards the end of his career sending a slapshot towards a ref... Nowhere near actually hitting him, but enough to get his point across. I thought that was about as far as it should ever go.

When the Wideman hit was on THN at first, there was also a vid of Lucic punching at a player and catching the linesman in the face. I would not be surprised if that was "accidentally on purpose" by Lucic based on his dirty play in the past. I think the optics of the Wideman hit overshadowed this incident in a big way.

Does anyone know how the linesman who was hit is doing? I thought I had read somewhere he was having post concussion symptoms.

#2650554 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

Agreed, Jimmy. He was just trying to make the best of a situation he didn't seek, then just accepted and embraced it and the league goes bush-league. Reading what the NHL was saying trying to get him to bow out, that crosses a serious line, IMHO. I hope he has a hell of a time at the game.

#2650436 Amusing stories you have heard or lived.

Posted by TheXym on 28 January 2016 - 09:56 PM

I couldn't put this in the spook yourselves thread, even though I am terrified of spiders. A guy posted this on the computer forum I frequented years ago, and I found it amusing. I left that forum in 2008-2009, and haven't been in touch with the guy. I hope he spider didn't get him.

okay so i'm standing in front of my toilet just as i'm starting to take a whiz, and all of the sudden i feel this tickling on my foot (i was barefoot). So i look down to see this ******* HUGE ******* SPIDER that had just crawled over my foot and was heading right for my other foot!Seriously, this thing was almost the size of a tarantula! it had to be almost 1.5-2 inches big, IT WAS f*****g HUGE!!!! I like FLIPPED out and jumped back against the wall to try and not let that thing get at my **** foot! keep in mind i had just started to pee and once you start, you KNOW you can't stop, so pee is now going all over the place as i do this ****** up little dance to stay away from this spider, who now starts to panic and running around at this crazy hyper speed! then the ******* thing starts running for the door, unfortunately, i am between the door and it!

Maybe two seconds have elapsed now, so i've got a LONG way to go in this pee still, i'm trying to aim it somewhere at the toilet (it's missing), and now i've got this huge spider charging me! I don't know WHY i did this, but i had to use the ONLY weapon that i had at my disposal, so i aimed my
pee-stream right at the spider! i hit the ****** DEAD ON, and he didn't like that one bit, and made a direct 90 degree turn and headed VERY quickly straight for the wall with the radiator! I don't know what i was thinking, but i did my best to keep peeing after the thing, and then the thing pops out from the radiator RIGHT NEXT TO ME and tries to bolt out the door, and i'm like PANICKING so I try and pee on him, but he like SHOOTS by me into the hall and I twirl around, for some ****** up reason, and TRY AND FOLLOW THE ******!. So I'm like hobbling after this spider with my jeans now around my ankles, hobbling into the hallway with pee going ALL OVER THE PLACE and still trying to **** on this huge **** spider! This took all of about 7 seconds, from first tickle to me running into the hallway peeing all over the place, and then the ******* runs down the stairs! It's about now that I finally ask myself WHAT THE **** AM I DOING, standing in the hallway with my pants around my ankles holding my **** and aiming a stream of urine down the stairs, so i quickly hop back to the bathroom and finish what was left into the sink (it was closer then the toilet).

So now, with my pants soaked in pee, i'm standing there in front of the sink wondering WHAT THE **** I JUST DID! Now there is pee on EVERY SINGLE SURFACE of the bathroom, all over all the magazines, on EVERY wall, the floor is one big pool of pee, there's pee in the sink, on the mirror, probably on the ceiling, the whole basket of extra TP is now useless becasue of pee on it, my pants and undies are SOAKED in pee, the lower half of the front part of my shirt is soaked in pee, there's pee ALL OVER THE **** HALLWAY AND DOWN THE ******** STAIRS, and now the whole place reeks of pee AND THERE IS STILL SOME HUGE PEE-SPIDER ROAMING THE HOUSE SOMEWHERE!

So i just threw my clothes in the wash, and i'm gonna take a really fast shower, then try to clean up this huge damn mess as i wonder HOW THE HELL AM I GONNA EXPLAIN THIS ONE TO MY MOM.

I'm ******. And i smell like pee.

Any chance Dennis Wideman gets in?

Lol. Too bad it wasn't Halloran he got.

#2650228 ROY according to LGW

Posted by TheXym on 26 January 2016 - 06:30 PM

From Kevin Allen's column at USA Today:


6. Best Rookie: 1. Dylan Larkin (Detroit Red Wings) 2. Artemi Panarin (Chicago) 3. John Gibson (Anaheim)

Story: Panarin has more points, but Larkin has been the best all-around rookie. He has been Detroit's best forward. He's at plus-23, and has five game-winning goals.
