#2486614 Injury Updates

Posted by kipwinger on 24 February 2014 - 11:52 PM

It's been a long time since I took Intro to Logic in college.  But I'm pretty sure that it's entirely possible that Weiss could both suck this season AND still be a good signing...regardless of his injury proneness or lack thereof. 

 

Does that seem reasonable or have we devolved to the point in which "either/or" logic is the law of the land?




#2486611 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by kipwinger on 24 February 2014 - 11:11 PM

Probably more than he's worth, given the year he's having. Also don't think the Isles would trade him.

 

That depends on if you consider the year he's having a breakout year and sign of things to come, or whether it's just a freak occurrence.  I don't know the answer to that, but it's worth noting that he's generally trended upward (with the exception of an injury year and the lockout year) after being brought into the league too early and having to learn on the fly in the NHL.  It's not unreasonable to think that he's a star in the making and this is his coming out party.  Then again, it's not unreasonable to think he's just having a freak year either.

Alright I'm back from the bar and ready to take it like a man.  Congratulations Team Canada...you played the better game.  Good tourney Team USA, it was fun.  Now, I'm going to set it up for the Team Canada fans to spike.

 

That win was so sweet...(fill in the blank)

s*** is getting intense already.  I woke up, had a raw egg breakfast, and listened to Motley Crue's "Too Fast For Love" album in it's entirety.  Afterward I took a ten minutes period of silence to reflect upon the sacrifice and hardship endured by George Washington and his men at Valley Forge.  Most recently I spent time identifying which Western movie heroes were most like Team USA's current stars.  David Backes is Rooster Cogburn, and Patrick Kane is Shane.  That's as far as I got.

 

America rules!  Motley Crue Rules!  Rooster Cogburn and Shane Rule!

 

I'm out (for now)!

 

Edit:  Blake Wheeler is Jeremiah Johnson.

Oh it will be bonkers. If Canada wins tomorrow, I already have some idea's to post to rub it in a little more.

 

Great minds think alike, I did the same thing.  Can't wait.

Haha i remember that! Everyone in chicago wanted to kill that guy. They were spelling out "f*** you" in peperonis on pizza he ordered lmao.

 

Yeah, in some instances they literally tried to murder that guy...but nary a word about how their beloved Cubs (a team I despise with the intensity of a thousand dying suns) couldn't hold a THREE run lead despite a superior lineup and home field advantage.

I could care less about womens hockey, i'll keep my views on that to myself. But if ud been watching the OT, the officiating was easily the worst ive ever seen.

2 absolutely bogus calls in a row. A netfront battle for a loose puck called as a slash and an obvious penalty shot that was called a crosscheck.

Doesnt take away the gold though! Congrats ladies!

 

Hold a lead and you don't have to worry about that kind of stuff.  This all reminds me of that time the Chicago Cubs blew a three run lead before Steve Bartman touched a foul ball and the Cubs ended up losing.  If you don't blow leads, you don't have to worry about this stuff.  Bartman was a scapegoat...so are the refs.  Again, congrats Team Canada.

Why does every loss always have to be about the refs?  Isn't it possible that the better team won, despite the fact that the better team wasn't the one you wanted?  Congratulations Team Canada.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, he is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored, he has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift sword, his truth is marching on.  Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

Ok fellas, I called the Canadian fans out yesterday for not being online during their close game and heavily implied that they were "hiding" from criticism until the game turned in their favor.  To protect myself from similar criticism I have a few things to announce...

 

1)  I took a half a day off from work tomorrow to watch this game.  Because I have no responsibility I will be watching it in a bar and getting drunk (so I won't be on LGW).

2)  However, because I took a lead part in hyping this matchup and participated heavily in the trash talk it's only fair that I be here to take my lumps if USA loses.

3)  So...in the pursuit of fairness, I will be on LGW the second I get home to be taunted endlessly by you Canadian Scallywags in the event of an unlikely American loss.

4)  God help you if/when we win.

I'm so excited for this game I can't even talk s***.  It's on my mind about every ten minutes.  Most recently David Backes won the game all by himself...not figuratively, literally.  I was literally imagining David Backes playing Canada by himself.  Needless to say, pretty pumped.

And our top scoring forward is 66th in the nhl. Team is 19th in goals for. Defense would be fine if babs could have a proper lineup for once in his life.

 

Yeah any defense that relies on Smith, Kindl, Quincey, to fill out their second pair will not be "fine".

This is strange, there are hardly any Team Canada fans on the board right now.  I wonder why?
