I'd sign Semin to a contract just so I could see him do that again.  :lol:

Please someone post the Semin fight gif where he forgets where he is and starts playing the bongos in some imaginary rasta band.

PLEASE


#2535167 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 29 August 2014 - 12:08 PM

Frank I don't even know what to say in response to you sometimes but I can't resist...

The Bruins are not being "punished" for success or having a great goal scorer. They legally evaded the cap and deferred their bonuses to this year by choice. I suggest you do some research there...

So in your opinion... To attract free agents...we need to not do well...draft high...get some good young players...even though you just claimed no one knows how young players will ever turn out...or was that just relevant for our current prospects...whatever benefits your argument at the time I guess... OK.

Where...in Zeus' butthole...did you come up with this idea...and in what universe did that make sense...

PS. I may have had a drink...


This post is approved by BoS.

And Zeus's butthole.


#2535012 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 27 August 2014 - 10:16 AM

Seattle, Quebec, and Toronto also getting new teams in 2017


This is the only source I could find for that:

@SportsBizNews: NHL expansion four teams added by 2017, Quebec City, Toronto, Seattle, and Las Vegas $1.4b in expansion fees

I'm really hoping this is af****** joke. We're being punked, right? I mean, if it was Seattle and Quebec City I'd be fine with it (with one or both of those being relocation instead of expansion), but Vegas? A SECOND TEAM FOR TORONTO? f*** off.

#2534583 Alfie wants to play

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 19 August 2014 - 07:15 PM

 
 
 
The question I asked was based on LeftWinger saying he wanted the Wings to sign some depth players instead of resigning Alfie. Suter and Backes are not UFA so they cannot be signed. Plus, neither would be considered as "depth", and neither would fit under the cap.

My tongue is never far from my cheek, cowboy. :lol:

I think Kopitar and Weber are better fits. Kopitar could center our 3rd line if Helm is injured again.

LIES

i.e. I still can't stand Weber and just want an excuse to have Backes as a Wing.

And :lol: at *IF* Herlmer is hurt again...don't you know that someone's dad's grandpa's chiropractor said Herlmer is a whiny piss baby?! GET WITH THE TIMES MAN!

Out of curiosity.....what depth players out there do you want?


Ryan Suter and David Backes

#2534447 Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 17 August 2014 - 10:29 PM

I wish the bucket would have been filled with something else


Boogers? Pig's blood? T-Rex semen? Hitler's rotted entrails?

Or are we talking double rainbows? Sunshine mixed with clean sheets? PUPPY BREATH?!

I need to know. It's for science.

Dan Cleary accepted the challenge.  I like that he put up the info for donating online.  I haven't seen anyone do that yet.


UGH. I hate what this re-signing has done to people's (myself included) perception of Cleary. That video just made me want to hug him and beg him to retire.

Also, did anyone else notice he referred to himself as "Danny?" :lol:

I love these. It may seem silly, but it's raising awareness and leading to huge increases in donations!

He plays for the Dertrert Rerd Werngs

This is a good piece:

Good article. Also,

"Kronwall has remained an effective No. 1 defenseman for the team."

SUCK IT HATERZ


#2534028 What Might Have Been: Gretzky to Detroit?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 11 August 2014 - 07:53 PM

Saying you wouldn't trade Yzerman for Gretzky is a lot like saying you wouldn't trade Ray Bourque for Bobby Orr.  Sure he's a good player, but you're getting the best player in the history of the game (at his position) while he's still in his prime.  Of course you make that trade. 


Nope.

But that's why I'm not a GM :lol:

Well that and a plethora of other reasons, I suppose...
