I won't be around much for the beginning of this one tonight, so hoping I come home to a healthy lead!

While that would be somewhat entertaining, the NHL has final say. Technically the owners don't own the team, they own the rights to a part of the NHL. Its like owning a McDonalds. You own it but you can't decide to use a different sauce on the Big Macs you sell, or bring back the McDLT

Question: do you think I'm serious most of the time?

2nd question: do you *honestly* think the NHL could contain me if I were independently wealthy?! MWAHAHAHAHAHA

get at me Bettman

Goodness, how many photos of this event are there? Is there a video too? Some sketches, a narration by James Earl Jones?

Morgan Freeman, actually. Trust me, you DON'T want to see the underwater cam they used...

Edit: And WHY does it look like he has no armpit hair?! Everything about this picture makes me want to pour acid on my face

Almost makes it worthwhile to buy a hockey team just so you could exclusively use inappropriate sponsers and plaster them on unis. I would strictly allow only sex toy shops, strip clubs, and penis enhancement companies to sponsor my hockey team.

There's no other thread for this, so since we're talking about the lineup for BOS...

@AnsarKhanMLive: Gustavsson starting tomorrow in Boston.

I'm gonna go burn some incense to spiritually cleanse myself after that abomination of a game.

Just throwing this out there- Someday Jiri Hudler's daughter is going to Google her dad's name and That Picture will come up.

I would recommend that Jiri Tlusty's daughter never google her father

#2579272 My Ideal Playoff Situation

I wrote Gordie Howe, it auto corrected to however.
I'm leaving it.

I turned off autocorrect on my phone because it resulted in some pretty sketchy texts :lol:

Love him on Twitter haha since he went to Florida it's only gotten better....

"@strombone1: 690 PLAYERS


He followed that when they got the first overall pick with "I've never won anything before!!"

But i think this is my all-time favorite....

"@strombone1: Don't think so....."@FlaPanthers: Does Roberto Luongo have the Twitter?"


Eddie Lack is pretty funny on Twitter too.

LGW! And nobody post THAT picture of Happy, please.

She got placed their* in witness protection for her cooperation in bringing down a pay for butt pat scheme.

She was the ringleader, but she folded on someone.

How the hell else was I gonna get that sweet deal?

Also, *there

Also, kip, it's complicated. There're a lot of things I love here. There're also a lot of things I despise. I want to move closer to MI, but it's not in the cards right now. /seriousness

#2579260 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 06 March 2015 - 01:38 PM

Awwwww s***.  You've bitten off more than you can chew on this one.  While your logic is solid, you argument is vulnerable in one key way.  What if a bunch of people on LGW think that Brendan Smith is WAY better than he is?  I mean, what if they thought that instead of a third pair defenseman with upside, he was a "dynamic two way defenseman"?  What if they thought that instead of a mediocre defenseman who has underwhelmed both offensively, and defensively, they thought of him as a future cornerstone of our blueline and in some cases have even compared him favorably to Keith Yandle?  Then, it absolutely WOULD be like scratching Kronwall for Marchenko wouldn't it?  And that's how your argument is wrong. 
Because Brendan Smith, despite his past and/or current performance, is a frickin' defensively stalwart. 

I see what u did there...

Actually your refutation is flawed because you're claiming that peoples feelings  (including yours) towards a player trumps my argument. People's feelings wont change my mind. Statistics will and practicality will. Quiet simply logic will.... Smith has 11 points in 57 games and is -2 and Kindl has 11 points in 33 games and is +1. Almost HALF as many games as Smith. Kyle Quincey has 13 points in 53 games; more PPG than Smith. Does this mean Quincey is superstar Keith Yandle mode and Smith is semi Keith Yandle? He^l Quincey isn't even known for offense!
I mean we can even take this to last season and compare Danny Dekeyser to Smith. Dekyser is a defensive minded defensemen yet he tallied more points in less games than your "two way playing stalwart"  Smith.
You need some legitimate data to claim a hypothesis to be true. Not feelings.  
Regardless with the above mentioned stats I stick to my opinion on the matter. Marchenko could very well replace one of the left handers if Babcock thinks its viable. At this point the only one I can think of is Smith as the other defenseman (except ericsson) have played pretty well, including Smith. But Kronwall wont be the one to go. Neither will Dekeyser or Quincey pairing. Obviously not Zidlicky. Maybe Ericsson? Doubt that. 

You didn't see what he did there :lol:

#2579249 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 06 March 2015 - 12:57 PM

I know that it's supposed to be a joke, but it's not funny anymore. I could see how it would have been useful maybe back in November/December to make a point, but the point has been made, the team is really good, and tbh the constant "tank it" in every thread is akin to people trolling more than anything else

It's no worse than the "we like our team/kicked the tires" bulls*** that gets spewed every time Holland does something that people don't like, and that's been going on for *years.* It drives me nuts, but it is what it is. Some people think it's funny. I don't. Oh well.
