#2646427 The Elite Dylan Larkin

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 06 January 2016 - 10:59 PM

ASG aside, I think it's extremely premature to be talking about Dylark as an elite hockey player, and I think it breeds unrealistic expectations. He has a f*** ton (actual measurement, look it up) of potential, and has achieved the rare feat of Exceeding Expectations ™, but the kid is a rookie. He's just getting his sea legs, and to compare him to Yzergod this early in the game is setting us all up for heartbreak. Let him develop his game, and let's sit back and enjoy watching him. I don't want to puff him up now and in two years be talking about "what could have been." I'll set my expectations moderately, and hopefully we'll all be blown out of the water if and when he grows to be truly "elite."

#2644528 Evander Kane Under Sex Investigation, Not Charged

Do a research about the guy and you know why it all adds up.


I'm well aware of why you think it adds up. Whether or not he wants to ball in instagram pictures or wear a damn track suit to practice are far less damning indictments of his character to me than potentially being a rapist, but you know...

*eye roll*

???

What is thef****** problem? He's a young guy with money. You're seriously disgusted by him posing with some stacks in a thread that is discussing him being accused of *sexual assault*?!?!

GOOD GRIEF

While I would again love the NHL to take a stand on this, they have already set the precedent. If Evander is treated differently than Patrick...

Ah, when you don't have your own traditions you just borrow ones from more successful franchises. You're welcome, Perds.


#2643244 That lazy Mantha....

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 17 December 2015 - 09:16 PM

rant/

I don't understand the concept of rubbing people's opinions in their face when a situation changes on a message board where we are all a fan of the same thing. No one who thought Mantha wasn't cutting it *didn't* want him to turn it around. People weren't rooting for him to fail, they were pointing out that he was most certainly not living up to his hype--whatever the reason. I'm glad Mantha is doing well. I want him to become an absolute superstar. I'm glad he is starting to rock it. That doesn't change the fact that he previously wasn't, nor does it make the people who pointed this out idiots. I hope he has turned a corner, and we never have to wonder what the hell his problem is ever again.

Agreed on Lidstrom as well. Kenny did'nt plan ahead for it, unless he thought Kronwall was going to be wayyy better than he is.


Not directed at your comment specifically, but I hear this thrown around a lot. I agree, but realistically how do you prepare your team to lose one of (if not the best) defensemen to ever play the game? Yes, you can go out and sign a Shea Weber, but that's still going to fall short, especially when OTHER players on your team that you thought were pretty decent are exposed as mediocre in his absence. We didn't just lose Lids, we "lost" everyone on the team that he elevated.
