#2581244 Big Injuries for TB

Posted by frankgrimes on 13 March 2015 - 12:30 AM

Absolutely sucks for them, hopefully they all come back healthy in time for the playoffs and set the world on fire.
I really love the way this team is built right mixture of size and skill the only thing they lack is toughness but other than that great job Stevie.

You realize they are likely facing us.

I do and I'd prefer both teams fully healthy.

2 points should be a must.

There going as far as Rinne will take them, probably 1st round only.

Shey Weber and Roman Josi have something to say about that too

#2579696 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

I don't think it will account to much maybe a bit of money TSN on the other side will be interesting especially because they are owned by Bell.

I wonder if the whole thing is too try and force the Leafs to trade them.

Great point and I wouldn't blame them one bit. Dion has to answer the same questions over and over again, Kessel is one of the best scorers in the game and yet gets blamed for a lot off stuff..

Lupul should stick to the no comment thing till he is traded that would piss off the media even more

I hate twitter. HATE it.


Same here, Twitter Facebook the Youtube trolls, the stupid "I have no life so everything offends me idiots" basically everything related to social media.

The Leafs short bus is comedy gold.
Someone at TSN is going to lose their job over that if they haven't already. Maybe the live tweet feed on TV will stop after this.

One can only hope it's so stupid having to see Twitter trackers or trackers from other leagues when all someone wants to do is watching hockey.

They either lose their job or will be held accountable financial wise.

Lupul, Phaneuf and his wife are rightfully suing the Twitter guy and TSN http://www.marketwir...se/-1997197.htm


"If TSN and Mr. Adragna do not immediately comply with the demands set out in our letters, we have instructions from our clients to immediately commence a lawsuit against them.

"Our clients will not be discussing this matter with the media. Any questions should be directed to the undersigned."


good on them media has to know their limits and social media trolls being held accountable is even better.

Just come out and release what we all know he has a concussion. Would be happy with a point

#2574424 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Best goalie this year with the most playoff experience for the Wings so this shouldn't even be a question.

True leader.


Jep und it will be a sad day if his career is cut short because of concussions or other stuff like really sad.

You're right....Because making someone who gets millions pay 10k for sucker punching our captain and putting him out will deter benn the next time he decides to do it. Not a punch to the face. That's so barbaric.  :glare:


We need a wiki now to show us how to sneak in flowers and love letters to the next game so when someone runs one of our players or punches them in the back of the head we can all throw those onto the ice and tell said player how much we love him and appreciate his hard work. WE LOVE YOU BENN GROUP HUG!!!


Yeah let's all send Benn some love-letters and flowers maybe if we do the same thing with the NHL department of players safety they'll come to their senses and fine a multi-millionaire 10.000 bucks lol


The only way I'm sending him a letter would be if a guy like Colton Orr, Brian McGrattan or Frazer McLaren delivers the letter on the ice

Just read somewhere, that the Isles fans are complaining about Tavares taking a beating with Martin out with a broken nose. So I guess Brian Burke was right, when he said if the enforcers are gone the rats will take over we are seeing that now.


Sending a message leaguewide that you can't go after our starplayers without payback (either fight our tough-guy or our tough-guy will go after everyone including the other starplayers). I mean how much longer are people willing to accept that crap ?


I'm sure if a guy like Frazer McLaren tells Benn you either fight me, or I'm going after Seguin, Nischuskin...basically anybody from your team then Benn will start to think maybe it wasn't the best idea to punch Z 2 times in the head, because if he doesn't fight then someone else is toast because of his actions.



It will do something; look at the NFL. Suh gets hit with a six figure fine, then he goes a full season without even incurring a penalty. Hockey players are tough. They're not scared of some half-assed fight. In many cases, no one ever lands a solid punch. How is that more discouraging than going after their finances?

Not enforcing the rules does lead to an arms race. That's why every team used to have a designated enforcer. It's also a terrible way of encouraging safety; just look at the lawsuit against the nhl.


i.e 2.500 $ fine for a guy who made 14.000.000 that year.


it's unbelievable and if the league isn't willing to really do anything it should be up to the teams to take matters in their own hands and mean business.

Benn should be facing a suspension, but since it was against a Red Wing, and Pronger is now employed by the department of player safety, I'm expecting to be disappointed. Still hoping Hank is OK. It would be only too fitting if next season, Benn went to hit Zetterberg and Hank went low like Stevie Y did on Pronger back in the day.

Nope Benn should have had to answer for that in Maguire style.

Nothing will come out off this if people are expecting pay-back it has to be done on ice if only guys who can do that were available ... oh wait they are it just takes a phone call to Toronto or Calgary.

Running to the league like ******* won't teach other teams a lesson, saying enough is enough will do so. I.e Isles Pens 2 years ago

Ha. I was thinking the same thing when I first said it.
And I'm not offended by it either, or a lot of other things people have to apologize for saying, but I can still understand why certain things shouldn't be said on such a widely viewed platform.


Yeah we are on the same page then, reminds me of how happy I was when some owner basically told the offended party to f*** off and find something elese to do instead of complaining about a team name *lol*
