#2633793 All Purpose "Ovechkin is Awesome" Thread

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 October 2015 - 02:49 PM

there is no debate Crosby is the best player in the world and can do more than just waiting to unload his onetimer. Ovechkin is one of the best goal scorers in the game but there certainly are better players not just Crosby..Toews , Stamkos, Tavares, Seguin, Benn and Getzlaf come to mind.

these 3 clowns are so bad typically Rogers show coaches corner you morons

Not a betting man but if roles were reversed a Wing would have had an in person hearing for running price but because it's vise versa the little frog gets away with it f****** bulls*** if that's the call that turned this game around it will be open season in every goalie this year

Find a way to screen Price will be key.




#2630238 MLSE signs sponsorship deal with Draftkings

Posted by frankgrimes on 13 October 2015 - 04:14 AM

 

Are you anti fantasy sports? Or are you upset that MLSE is getting involved with it?

 

I'm against the daily version of it because I think it has nothing to do with skill and is just a gambling loophole. I mean year long leagues with a one time payment are a different thing but Draftkings and Fanduel are operating in a very grey area.




#2628614 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 October 2015 - 06:09 PM

The same way Mantha was "That Good" last year? or?...
I'm not saying he can't play in the NHL this year, I just don't think he should start the season in Detroit. I would much prefer to see him start the season down in Grand Rapids, and if he plays well enough and there are injuries down the middle in Detroit, then he should get his shot. I don't like the idea of an 18 year old kid, going from college, straight to the National Hockey League. My opinion.

 

Couldn't agree more just look at another team and some of their young guns are deemed ready but are sent back by Lamoriello and Babcock to even learn more. Don't get me wrong I'm extremely happy for Larkin he has worked his butt off and earned this chance but I think once the  season gets going it will be tough for him to keep up. The Crosby's and Bergeron's of the world in pre-season form are not the ones he is going to face night in and night out in the NHL. His talent level is awesome as is his performance but going straight to the NHL is an unreal beast for a 19 year old..not named Eichel or McDavid (both are going to take the NHL by storm).

 

Even if it's just temporally it would have made more sense to let him develop chemistry with Mantha and destroy the AHL and come up when he's fully ready to stay up for good and not get send down again.




#2628522 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 October 2015 - 11:15 PM

I'm very happy for him, guy had such an amazing camp but on the same token I'm kinda sad in terms of (maybe) the Wings are rushing him. Pre-season is one thing but this week it's go time and would have prefered to see him center the Mantha line in GR. Anyhow I guess it's only temporally till Pasha is back having him center the 2 line would be a lot to ask out of  Larkin so soon  but you never know.

 

As far as him being the next face of the franchise I think it will be between Larkin & DannyD I mean when was the last time the 2 faces of this franchise were all from michigan and probably the best center and defender of the team in the future? That's so freaking cool, I may think Holland has lost his fire and question how his builds the team in a very softish way but him and the help of our perfect human really nailed the Dekeyser signing.




#2628492 Raffi Torres at it again.

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 October 2015 - 07:27 PM

about time it's pre season and he could have held back. Now he has 4 months to think about it.


#2628095 If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

Posted by frankgrimes on 03 October 2015 - 04:07 AM

no, what I'm trying to say is that the pre season is a chance for young players to impress against mostly other peers and veterans that aren't going full speed.

I like most think Larkin has done that, yes I want him to bulk up signs be around 210 when he comes up. but more importantly would be developing chemistry with Mantha.


#2627947 If Larkin forces his way to the team , what will we look like?

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 October 2015 - 08:45 AM

It was more a basic example of how overrated the pre season and therefore the performance of these young kids is. Larkin is just an example.

The most important thing is that he seems to be on the right development track.

I'd say let him go to the AHL dominate there with Mantha and be the first call up.


#2627541 Chicago re-signs Seabrook; 8 years, $6.875 AAV

Posted by frankgrimes on 27 September 2015 - 03:13 PM

Well Shaw and Teravainen aren't old in fact they are young and as long as their core is still in their prime, they'll sadly will be an annual contender.




#2627514 Chicago re-signs Seabrook; 8 years, $6.875 AAV

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 September 2015 - 11:47 PM

This is a great deal for one of the top defenders in the game:
 
Seabrook has to be one of the most underrated defenders in the game, he may not be flashy but he does everything so damn well and allows Keith to take some risks. So all in all a pretty good deal for the Hawks, he would have easily gotten something like 8x8 on the open market.

I would say it's something like Weber, Suter, Doughty, Keith, Seabrook, Pietrangelo, Hedman

Bettman translation - open up your check book, WOW me then we can talk.

 

Exactly and even if the NHL won't be the first league to do it - that's going to be the soccer league - that freaking worldcup is already proof enough of what we can expect, IF the companies are going to WOW Mr. grow the game...




#2625502 Versteeg traded to 'Canes

Posted by frankgrimes on 14 September 2015 - 09:47 PM

No worries I honestly thought Keith was getting robbed in terms of Norris this year. He does get a lot of credit finally and more people are mentioning him in the same sentence as Toews which is only fair because Keith is that good.

Seabrook in my mind is very underrated although he allows Keith to do the things he does. Seabrook is a big body , can our up points and is very good in his own end. Those 2 are without a doubt the best pairing in the nhl right now.


#2624978 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by frankgrimes on 08 September 2015 - 11:03 PM

 
Yet, if this was a non-core player rather than Kane, I imagine the Blackhawks organization would more than likely rest on their impeccable moral code.  You know, like the Kings.

The kings would rather have an animal back than someone who has used painkillers ...
