#2614065 Here we go AGAIN - Coyotes, part DUH!

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 June 2015 - 11:42 PM

Well the loyal fans there got screwed over bigtime by the NHL. I mean the guy who is responsible for putting a team there should be fired once they are on the move. That Vegas gamble - oh the irony - is the next stupid project.

How hard is it for the NHL to understand that hockey in the desert will never work ? Now loyal fans are going to lose their team, because the interest has never been there from enough people and the NHL front office was too cocky admitting their mistake.

Give Quebec back what has been stolen from them a long time ago,, let the Nordiques return and for once have another strong slamdunk market, i.e. another Winnipeg.

It will be a two way contract so no problem with it at all..some veteran leadership will be nice for the griffins


#2613434 What changes do you think we'll see with Blashill?

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 June 2015 - 01:44 PM

#2612802 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 June 2015 - 05:47 AM

Thought this thread would be about the Ducks versus Hawks instead it's another Quennville versus the best coach in all of hockey (useless) debate.

Q is a very good coach but he is no Babcock. There is a reason wh the guy is so highly regarded and finally the highest paid coach in the league.

I thinkk the top coaches are: Babs > Suter > Q > Tippet > McLellan > Julien > Hitchcock > Bylsma

up and coming ones: Nelson + Cooper + hopefully Blashill

Anyway, this game came down tothe big guys and well...the Hawks big guns delivered the Ducks didn't they didn't even goon it up :(

Hate to see Chicago there but man Toews versus Stammer should be one for the ages.

Hopefully Keith and Seabrook are tired

The more I watch that replay, the more I can see how the refs saw it as a good goal.  I mean, was it really a kicking motion?  When in doubt, allow the goal.


 

Neither have the Hawks for that matter.  Got to give credit where credit is due.

 

This rule is so difficult why not make it simple? Goal with the foot aren't counting period no mysterios kicking or not motion.

Maybe I should just be a sharks fan then at least I wouldn't have to deal with this during the postseason

 

There is enough time left but the Ducks need to get it going and at least outmuscle them, go to the dirty areas and do whatever it takes to get back into the game.




#2612117 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend Logo Revealed

But the question is will/can there fanbase pull that off? There not exactly the biggest fan base and let's be honest, every teams fanbase wants there players in only.

 

I think so yes nowadays everyone has a pc, notebook, smartphone, tablet and maybe even some of those "computer" watches. So tons of ways to install some clickers




#2612095 Sabres hire Dan Bylsma as head coach

Posted by frankgrimes on 30 May 2015 - 02:32 PM

 

Buffalo will absolutely see success sooner. Not because of who is behind the bench, but they have been stock piling good prospects for a few years now. Toronto's cupboards are basically empty. 

 

Zadarov, Bogosian, Eichel, Reinhart and probably even more talented young guns I've forgotten. Toronto is already over the moon for that cocky Nylander kid (what has he done at the NHL level ?) the only peice they really have is Morgan Rielly. So for sure Buffalo will be better in the not so distant future their rebuild is ahead at least 2 years

To honest I thought it looked like the Buffalo logo in terms of colorschemes.

 

That being said happy for Nashville having this game, although the ASG has sadly turned into a joke but seeing Weber and Chara upping the hardest shot speed again, will be something I'll watch
