#2342421 1/19: Red Wings 0 at St. Louis Blues 6

Can we for the record squash the Parise and Suter whining..it had nothing to do with the money..they wanted to be Kariya and Selanne part 2  ..Holland offered them as much money as anyone else.

 

Here is some advice everyone...mix up your favorite beverage whether its whiskey, beer, wine, listerine, dr pepper, sit down..chill the f out and have a short memory.  See you headcases on Monday.

The good news is this is game 1 of 48..the bad news may also be that this is game 1 of 48

Well like any good parent and fan would do I`m going to leave this game on as background noise and engage in a epic game of mini stick hockey with my 4 year old......oh and drink whisky.

We should sign Manti Te'O

And sub his girlfriend in for Quincey..it was like he wasn`t there on the Tarasenko goal anyways.

We are playing the top team in the conference at their arena.  Let's all calm down and wait about 10-15 games before we sell the farm. 

 

The Wings do look pretty bad right now, though. 

Um..its a 48 game season..i do agree about calming down but we don`t have 10-15 games to evaluate..we have like 5

That is a fantastic looking GDT..well done.

 

I'm going with 4-2 Wings every game until I get one right and then I can act like a guru.




#2339399 Brunner's nickname

#2338292 Team Roll Call.

Posted by puckbags on 07 January 2013 - 04:56 PM

You are all going to be very happy with Tootoo... He is still under 30, sticks up for his teammates and is coming off he best offensive prduction year in his career...

 

 

Get well soon Colo! I hate Kindl....

 

My theory on Tootoo is better to be playing with him than against him 6 times a year.

#2334621 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by puckbags on 23 November 2012 - 05:43 PM

Does anyone feel like I do at this point and would rather them just cancel the whole season than force a deal and we get stuck with some mid rate 50 game season? Ask NBA fans what the quality of games were like in a 66 game season last year.


#2330847 Z basically says Bettman should be fired

Posted by puckbags on 06 October 2012 - 04:35 PM

Simply put, without the fans there wouldn't be an NHL and neither the owners or the players would be making the money they do. without the fans, there is no game to save.

i spend probably close to a $1,000 a year on tickets, merchandise, nhl center ice, etc. In return, i expect that the players are out there on the ice playing to their best abilities.

Take the winter classic for example, there are people from all over the world coming to this event who have already spent a lot of their hard earned money in travel and for hotels to come and watch these guys play. and all of that might be for nothing because millionaires and billionaires can't decide how to split up "our" money.

when it comes to a new cba, as a paying fan, i expect both sides to work their asses off and get a deal done, but neither side has shown any willingness to put aside their pride and egos to get a new deal done


Our money? Once you buy that jersey or pay for a ticket that money is no longer yours..it is the owners ..when you buy a chocolate bar is it your concern what the guy who owns the 7-11 does or how he spends the money?

Also this fallacy that Bettman is responsible for the lockout is so stupid..he answers to the owners for the 100th time..they tell him they aren't happy and want to lockout the players and it's his job as head of the league and rep of the owners to break the bad news and get the blood on his hands. I don't like the guy for a lot of the things he has done but this is solely on the owners and players and how they want to deal with it.


#2329877 Jimmy D Speaks out on Lockout, fined $250k

Posted by puckbags on 24 September 2012 - 12:01 PM

Some of the stuff he said was refreshing to hear..some was just dumb as s***. Opinions are like assholes and to be honest this has just turned into a never ending loop of people blowing smoke up other peoples asses. The lockout 8 years ago was brought about because of billionaire owners complaining about escalating salaries and huge operating costs. New CBA was done and everything seemed good until they started to find loopholes and raising the cap every year ( i know it was based on revenue). Put a salary cap in place and make it stick for 5-10 years and then re entertain the idea of it going up or down. As Jimmy D said the owners WILL NOT lose in this process and it wont be the Shea Webers and Zach Parises who will be anxious to get back to work..it will be the Paul Bisonette's and the Drew Miller's who will start to miss their pay cheques in the near future. Players are greedy but the owners are greedier...you don't get to be billionaires by giving in to people. It's a fine line between being greedy and making shrewd smart business moves. I'll enjoy watching my local WHL team play while these d bags figure out how to stroke each others egos some more.


#2325163 Canadiens sign Pacioretty to six-year extension.

Posted by puckbags on 14 August 2012 - 12:27 PM

And we wonder why there is a potential lockout on the horizon. This guy has played 1 full season in the show. He has 53 career goals.. I know he's only 23 but cmon..4.5 million. Nothing and I mean nothing was learned from the first lockout. If anything it's gotten worse..they keep pumping up the cap ( I know it's based on revenue) and guys like this keep getting these ridiculous contracts. He will score 18 goals next year and this contract will be a complete abortion that the Habs will be stuck with.


#2320352 Does Babcock walk?

Posted by puckbags on 19 July 2012 - 12:24 PM

What would be more frustrating for him is he knew that Holland wasn't putting any effort in..he clearly is and teams don't want to deal with us. It's pretty cut and dry
