I LOVE that you brought this up right now, because it perfectly illustrates the point I was making. You see, spending ones time thinking up hockey nicknames is something that 15 year old boys do while chillin with their bro-dudes in their mom's basement. You're not a 15 year old boy, are you?

Also, at the time I seem to remember that you conceded the point that your behaviour was silly, but now this statement seems to contradict that. Which is it? Do you secretly long for the days of Danny "Diesel" DeKeyser, Brian "Laser" Lashoff and Jakob "Fire" Kindl?

I was going through some pictures from an old phone and found this gem...

So so good.

I have no idea who they are, is that bad?
Big Bang Theory or Modern Family 

Johnny utah.
from Point Break

And neither?
I guess I'd say modern family because al bundy, but I still don't watch it.

Do you watch the Superbowl more for the actual game, or the commercials&halftime show?

#2649413 Bravo, Smitty

Posted by e_prime on 21 January 2016 - 09:47 PM

People shat on MDZ in a similar manner and now he's gobbling up 20 minutes a night for Philly. His career had been declared dead and look at that zombie go. In a similar fashion, Smitty gets s*** on, probably rightfully so, but like you said BoS he's not half as bad as people make him out to be. He's under the microscope because so many people think that XO or Sproul or Jensen are going to make less mistakes. Which to date, as far as I'm concerned, is an unknown.

Jesus, what the hell happened to Keith Tkachuk? He looks like the older version of himself ate the younger one. What a tub of s***.

#2648592 1/17 GDT : Flyers (2) at Red Wings (1) Shoot Out

Posted by TheXym on 17 January 2016 - 09:41 PM

Not hard to blow a lead in the 3rd when you're consistently only ahead by one fricking goal.

This. So much this. You need to give your goalie some breathing room. If you only score one you are asking him to pitch a shutout every game. No goalie is going to do that.

Quincey to the box. Time for the PK to step up. A shorthander would be nice

#2648301 Over The Garden Wall

Posted by Echolalia on 16 January 2016 - 06:07 PM

Over the Garden Wall




The wonderfully whimsical, yet haunting tale of two brothers who find themselves lost in a mysterious wood.


Elijah Wood as WIRT



Collin Dean as GREG




Christopher Lloyd as THE WOODSMAN



And others!  Including Tim Curry!  John Cleese!  and more!


The show is a 10 part miniseries, with each episode chapter at approximately 12 minutes long.  SO ITS NOT A LONG INVESTMENT LIKE BREAKING BAD OR WALKING DEAD!   You can crunch this one out in a couple hours and come out on the other side in time for dinner!


It has spectacular animation and beautifully crafted landscapes reminiscent of a Miyazaki film, so if you're into artistic design its worth the two hour investment in that alone.  BUT WAIT!  The story is excellent also!  At first glance it seems like a simple children's tale of two boys trying to make their way home after getting lost in the woods.  But its so much deeper than that!  The writing is clever, managing to be simultaneously charming and horrifying, again the comparison to Miyazaki is warranted here.  Except there's elements of Tim Burton as well, without being so over the top about it (a plus!)  As it was initially aired on Cartoon Network and the target audience at first glance appears to be kids, you may think this isn't going to be very interesting.  But you couldn't be more wrong.  While the story caters to kids there's also plenty here for adults as well (in fact much of the story's deeper stuff will go over most kids' heads).  Symbolism like whoa!  Literary references!  Existentialism!  Metaphors!  What are you waiting for!


PLUS THERES MUSIC!  Who can forget that classic hit POTATOES AND MOLASSES??  Or my personal favorite A COURTING SONG!  Yes there's a song for everyone in this gem!



And the best part?  Chapter 1 is on YOUTUBE for free!  


SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??  Over the Garden Wall is an EMMY AWARD WINNING classic worth watching!  AND THATS A ROCK FACT!

#2648299 And your NHL All-Star Division Captains are....

Everyone who is planning on attending the ASG in person should go wearing one of those tshirts goddammit

Edit: also, the other pic they were going to use on the shirts originally was way better, as it was a close up of Scott making a derp face and was far more self-deprecating and hilarious. Damn licensing issues.

Edit again: http://copperbooom.t...ts-made-for-his. :lol:

If the NHL, and a sizeable chunk of its fans, is going to insist that fighting is a necessary, traditional, and integral part of the game then I don't see why an individual shouldnt be voted into the all star game based on skill in this area.

You can't have it both ways. Fighting can't be tacitly condoned, if not downright celebrated, while the fighters themselves are barred from receiving honors based on their ability to do this "nesessary" part of the game well.

And that's to say nothing of the extremely contemptable decision to offer a man a life changing opportunity and then conspire to take it away. After all, regardless of his skill level, john Scott has devoted his entire life to loving and playing hockey. This is his hall of fame moment and he might be robbed of it. Its an absolutely awful way to treat a guy who probably loves the game more than any of us.

Posted by kipwinger on 13 January 2016 - 01:10 PM

I want nothing to do with a slow dingbat like Lucic or two depth moves like Prust or Martin (both of whom seriously suck). I like Okposo and Ladd because they're big, fast, gritty, (but most importantly) are good at playing modern hockey.
Acquiring guys who are tough, but suck, doesn't make you a better team contrary to popular opinion.
