#2552317 11/26 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by frankgrimes on 27 November 2014 - 04:28 AM

Weiss was our best forward tonight in terms of Corsi-for percentage. That, to me, is even more encouraging than the three goals in two games.


Hockey is played on ice not in a basement with an excel computer or by math freaks


#2552022 Chelios Is Not Too Fond of Shanahan

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 November 2014 - 05:36 PM

I think what Chelios said is perfectly fine, Shanhan has no experience at the job, he never coached or has been involved in a GM role and now he is taking on a huge job in THE hockey-market worldwide. Becoming a GM/president is hard becoming a good one is even harder and personally I appreciate guys who are working their way up more than someone who gets the job on a silver table.

 

My favorite Chelios quote of all time




#2552002 Lucic tasting some knuckles...

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 November 2014 - 12:54 PM

Yeah him, Jenner and maybe even Johannson won't be available for anything the Wings have to offer. If I remember correctly he also refused to fight the Islanders though guy Gallant who's not that big but has quick fists and p protects himself very well But man without Thornton and Chara the Bruins aren't playing a tough game which should be exactly where Lucic shines.


#2551343 Inconsistency

Posted by frankgrimes on 23 November 2014 - 03:20 PM

Rebuilding/retooling team that isn't  as skilled as it used to be, so inconsistency has to be expected. The team lacks gritty guys that can provide energy and change the momentum with a huge hit or blocking a laserbeam of a shot.




#2550814 Alfie not playing this season

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 November 2014 - 04:12 PM

Great player, should make it to the HHOF - although he might have to wait a bit - thanks for trying it Alfie, now go and enjoy your retirement with the Senators :-)

 

Such a classy player, will for sure watch his retirement ceremony in Ottawa. I'm also glad, that he doesn't push it the guy has made his money and had one heck of a career.

 

But I still think he should have finished his last year in Ottawa in hindsight I highly doubt he would have left them again :(




#2550184 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by frankgrimes on 20 November 2014 - 12:50 PM

Easily duped.  By his parents.   

 

His parents bought the house because they had power of attorney.  And the SEC hasn't exactly done a great job of protecting the US economy, let alone one guy.

 

I do agree that firing his agent and not replacing him was a giant mistake.  His parents, teammates, friends all should've been pointing that out to him.  He sounds naive.  I guess I just don't judge a 25 year old kid in that situation harshly for trusting his parents.  It'd be a different story if he blew it all himself on houses, cars, etc. 

 

 

Agreed yeah it was a mistake but nobody in his right mind would believe that your own family is taking 15 million $ and turn it into nothing.  Sad story indeed at least now he fill find out who his real friends are nice to see that the Jackets are standing behind him also.




#2549732 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by frankgrimes on 18 November 2014 - 04:48 PM

Pronger, Lidström should obviously be locks

I don't care if Fedorov ever makes it or not.




#2549546 14 Yr Old Collapse On Ice Later Passes Away

You might want to add some punctuation after "horrible".

 

I agree, this is horrible.  Thoughts and prayers to his family, loved ones.

 

Thanks man sorry what I meant was:

 

This is horrible

My prayers are for his family and loved ones

 

Never ever would I write horrible thoughts ...damn of mistake of mine so sorry




#2548084 General discussion for tonight's games

Posted by frankgrimes on 09 November 2014 - 06:03 AM

Not a fan of Crosby but what a show against the Sabers...5 point night ridiculous. I've watched the Preds - Blues what a great game that was, Pekka Rinne - so happy he's healthy - is an unbeatable wall when he is on his game.

 

I always liked Jeff Carter and Mike Richards both got unfairly critized in Philadelphia, get them away from all that attention and they shine. Also happy for Kopitar breaking his scoring slump, maybe the best european player in the game right now.

#2547659 Leafs' Ashton suspended 20 games for violating PED policy

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 November 2014 - 04:40 PM

 This league is so ridiculous it's not even funny:

 

slam someone through the glass...$ 2.500 fine when you are making 14.000.000 a year

spear someone...$ 5.000 fine for a 6 mill per player

slam an opponents face on the ice...14 games

using performance enhancing help...20 games

 

 

summary: f*** you NHL the whole front office needs to get cross checked by Steve Macintyre so they'll go back to their greedy, non integrity life.




#2547655 Jersey Sponsorship

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 November 2014 - 04:34 PM

Enjoy it..it will be the same bulls*** as in europe where some clubs are not only selling out their jerseys but some are also changing their game-colors to match the ones of a sponsor. It's a horrible thing and makes buying jerseys almost useless because you want to represent a club not a damn sponsor when you are paying a good junk of money for that stuff.

 

The day the NHL gets rid of that stupid current front-office can't come soon enough we need someone at the helm who is willing to protect the integrity and tradition of the sport.

 

Rogers, ads on jerseys, less fighting and more and more showboaters entering the league...hockey is fast becoming something it shouldn't be.
