#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

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

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?

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.

Cried and then tweeted that video. I know that even if it goes viral it probably won't change anything but it was really well made.

I agree that it's hard to sympathize with either side of a millionaires vs billionaires discussion, especially one that's threatening this hundredaires ability to watch the only sport I actually care about this season BUT 1. The billionaires don't entertain me all season so I like them less and 2. Didn't the players try to push back the expiration of this CBA in order to avoid another lockout?
ideas: 1.lock them all in a room until they agree, jury-style.
2.take all the money that goes towards redesigning/ruining jerseys and use that to settle everything?

#2327029 New Commissioner?

Posted by Ally on 27 August 2012 - 08:14 PM

What's sad is that your predisposition against Bettman makes you believe a fabricated story and then you use that as evidence that he should be fired.

Can anyone name one thing they know for certain about this guy that is a justification for their animosity?

One thing I know for certain is that he's the only thing besides a flu epidemic that's ever caused the Stanley Cup not to be awarded...
The fact that this many people HAVE a "predisposition against Bettman" is enough for me to say he shouldn't be commissioner. If the league is really as concerned about the fans as they like to claim then the head of the NHL should be a guy that the fans don't hate imo.
