Number One Center vs. Number One Defenseman

17 August 2015 - 09:02 AM

Short and simple debate to start another dreary, hockeyless, week. 

 

In order to win a Cup, is it more important to have a first rate center, or a first rate defenseman?  Why?

 

For discussion's sake, think about the centers for the 2011 Bruins, or the 2003 Devils.  Conversely, think about the top defensemen for the 2009 Penguins or the 2004 Lightening.

U.S. Senator calls Pittsburgh "America's hockey capital".  What a maroon!

The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

02 June 2015 - 03:37 PM

Mods, please move the Jurco talk from the Franzen thread.  I've been (partially) to blame for turning it into a Jurco thread.  Given the fact that a lot of folks have commented on the topic, I thought it deserved it's own thread, so as not to distract from the Franzen well wishing.


Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

22 May 2015 - 10:28 AM

Slava Fetisov, former Red Wing defenseman and star of the wildly popular documentary "Red Army", wants Russian law to ban Russian hockey players from coming to the U.S. before their 28th birthday. 

 

You'll recall Fetisov's story.  He bucked Soviet law preventing him from coming to the U.S. to play hockey, by refusing to play for their national team.  In the documentary he explained how he wanted to be free to make his own decisions, make his own money, and determine his own future, without being coerced by federal authorities. 

 

And now he's a federal authority.  And he's trying to restrict young players from having those very same liberties. 

 

Here's a thought Slava.  Rather than using a draconian legal system to force people to stay against their will, how's about you work toward reforming said legal system, and equally restrictive and authoritarian economic policies, so that people will WANT to stay in your s***ty country.  You are, after all, a Senator. 

 

What a dick.
