#2532717 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 21 July 2014 - 02:51 PM

I thought his nickname was "Big Daddy Cool", or was it the "1-2-3 Kid"?  I can never keep his nicknames straight. 

Someone please resurrect the "player formerly known as Steve" post, I beg you. One of my all time faves.

#2532633 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 20 July 2014 - 12:14 PM

I think it looks amazing. Hopefully it all comes to fruition. I am so thankful that there are people out there who love the city of Detroit as much as I do and who refuse to give up on trying to make it a better place. I will miss the Joe in all its s***ty glory, and hope they don't tear it down. I'd like to see it repurposed, maybe as the aquarium they had talked about at one time, but I know that's probably a pipe dream.

#2532363 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

I like the sound of Pavel's knee maybe being 'fixed' and that Z hasn't felt this good since 08. If those two can have a relatively healthy season it'll make such a huge difference for us. 

This makes my heart soar, and then I hear the theme from Reading Rainbow, then I feel like I have to go potty. What does this mean, mommy?

I don't understand why people hate the shoutout

I agree. I'm perfectly ok with games being decided by shoutout.

"First up for the Red Wings is Zetterberg, let's see what he has to say. Z?"

"Yeah, uh, I'd just like to make a shoutout to my boo Emma, my moms, and my homeboy Sven back in Sweden. Big ups!"

"Well, that was a solid showing by the captain, let's see how the Hawks stack up. First to the mic is Patrick Kane, who will inevitably bring something sufficiently douchey to the table..."

"Yo what up what up this ya boy P Kane in the hizzle, just want to give a shoutout to all the dime pieces out there, hit me up after the game and I might let you smell my cup YA KNOW WHAT I'M SAYIN but on the real one love PEACE"

"Point awarded to the Red Wings"

Sammy, toots, and Bert are gone, what more do u want from poor Holland? Total tomfoolery?

Not only do I want Total Tomfoolery ™, but I demand Utter Shenanigans along with, dare I say, The Old Razzle Dazzle. "Real Fans" would expect nothing less.

P.S. Franzen is lazy and he sucks.

#2531362 NHL-Game of Thrones Edition

Got a good chuckle out of this, and it's amusingly accurate to boot. Also a nice diversion from the suckage that has been this offseason so far.

Spoilers, maybe, for some that aren't up to speed on all the eps...

#2531045 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 10 July 2014 - 02:58 PM

What I wanna know is - will Hank's beard have a chance at the Hockey Hall of Fame?
If Hank makes it - I'll assume his beard will follow within a few years?

No way Hank gets in before his beard. Bet.

I really hope name pronunciations don't deter Holland from getting a good player.

Or else we'll never get Rodrigenstizzlean Kompfeerzuzabelt. Kid's a rocket!

#2529506 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 02 July 2014 - 02:04 PM

Cinderella frauds occasionally make the Finals. They don't win. Cinderella teams also occasionally take a 3-1 lead on the eventual Stanley Cup champs only to be exposed in games 5, 6, and 7.
Don't be fooled by Cinderella. She's really a homely girl with a mop and bucket.

While all this may be true, I'd still rather be Cinderella than an ugly stepsister. :(
