#2365966 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Posted by Ally on 07 March 2013 - 03:36 AM

I'd like to see the visor be grandfathered in but IMO things like Kevlar socks should just become mandatory for everyone. I see no reason not to considering they don't affect any part of a player's play (can't even argue vision like you could for visors). In a league that's always going on about player safety it seems ridiculous not to implement tiny changes like this that protect elite guys from crazy bad injuries.

You're very lucky. It would cost me about $1500 to fly to Detroit to go see the Wings at the Joe :(
I'm making the 4 hour drive to Calgary next week to see them though so at least there's that...

#2364567 if we can find a couple of power forwards.....

I don't understand the cleary+abs situation either but seriously, ease up on the panic buttons.
Babcock is not an idiot and if he's doing something that we don't understand I'm gonna go ahead and say that there's probably a good motive. Wasn't long ago that everyone was bagging on Holland and Babs for the defense that you're all now praising.

#2362908 Thoughts on the Blackhawks

Posted by Ally on 28 February 2013 - 11:49 PM

If the Wings break the streak, will Filppula break his stick like that idiot Burrows did against us last season?  

Should Howard skate and kneel like Luongo did?
I REAAALLY want to be the ones to break their streak but if CBJ were the ones to end I'd love it too.
Can you imagine though..."The Columbus Blue Jackets end The Blackhawks 20 game winning streak"
That would be pretty funny IMO

#2361381 Wings sign (D) Brian Lashoff to 3-year, $2.175m extension

Posted by Ally on 26 February 2013 - 03:27 AM

I like Lashoff. Super happy about this signing.
I also like how everyone suddenly forgot that they hate Kenny.

I'll 3rd it 

And I'm gonna go ahead and 4th it.

I literally stopped reading after the suggestion of trading Dats.

#2333672 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by Ally on 07 November 2012 - 01:22 PM

This lockout makes me long for the days of complaining about Ericsson's refusal to use his size and Franzen's refusal to be awake during regular season games. Ahh, good times.

#2330457 Datsyuk Article

Posted by Ally on 02 October 2012 - 12:05 AM

Nice article about how well-liked Pav (and a few other star Red Wings) are. The video isn't great quality but I'll never get sick of Datsyuk highlights.

#2330011 Jimmy D Speaks out on Lockout, fined $250k

Posted by Ally on 25 September 2012 - 12:46 PM

Some people have suggested that the owners could just replace their cattle with different guys who are willing to play for less. I think perhaps these people should watch the NFL and reexamine the idea of replacing skilled people with less skilled people.

#2328842 Any NHL'ers from your home town?

Posted by Ally on 15 September 2012 - 03:30 AM

My hometown is small but we've had quite a few NHL players from here.
Jon Klemm, Brad Lukowich, and Rob Niedermayer and Scott Niedermayer are some I can think of off the top of my head but I know there's more. There's a few like Stoll that lived here when they played on our WHL team too but that doesn't count. I do feel like I'm missing a big name guy here.....
Oh yeah, and Steve Yzerman

#2328428 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by Ally on 12 September 2012 - 01:26 PM

I'll still support the NHL after this. Still gonna buy merchandise, try to see games, pay for center ice. Being mad at the league as a whole hasn't clouded my memory enough to forget that I love hockey a lot.
Hockey fans spend a lot of time saying "i'll stop watching if _______ occurs" but I won't ever actually stop until the game stops being exciting for me (so I'll be around at least as long as Datsyuk plays)
When hockey is back, I'll be waiting...if not impatiently

That's not true. In spite of having to put up with yet another lockout, Bettman said we'd come crawling back again because we're the worlds greatest fans, remember?

Whoops, forgot about that.
Here's another idea guys...we kidnap Sid and hold him hostage until Bettman agrees to stop the lockout nonsense/retire. Who's in?

#2328263 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by Ally on 11 September 2012 - 01:15 PM

Where are the fans being mentioned in these negotiations? Nowhere? Oh, ok.
At least the last lockout we could entertain the idea that with the new agreement would come lower ticket prices. At least throwing out empty promises showed that the fans were on their minds for half a second.

#2327944 Patrick Eaves Skating again

Posted by Ally on 07 September 2012 - 02:49 AM

Update on Patty :(


My heart dropped when that puck hit him but I didn't expect it to be this long of a recovery.
I also really annoys me that when Crosby was out I had to hear/read about it every few days. It seemed like every time he saw a doctor we got a full report (no matter how minor the progress was) but there has been hardly any major articles about Eaves since the day the puck hit. Just kind of bums me out.

the atmosphere in my house is going to get reaaally unpleasant if/when the lockout is announced.
