That's a good point, veterans for sure will tell them to turn it down. Also something I've noticed us that McDavid is really uncomfortable with all the hype and attention, kid isn't even 18, just got back from an injury and the cameras are in his face all the time. Let him enjoy the tournament instead.

McDavid is 1 or 2 younger than the other players and he hasn't played hockey for a few weeks because of his injury. Give the kid time he has already shown flashes of brilliance this kid is special, the Oilers have a future generational player in him soon...


I think people are often forgetting on how crazy good Crosby was at that age hence to comparisons to Gretzky..


Eichel is the same thing, sometimes they just make you wow and sometimes I'm thinking how can miss that open net ? There is no doubt that both will be exceptional players and they are going to drastically shorten the rebuild of whatever team they end up playing for.


As good as Domi has looked I really hate his antics and celebrations score the damn goal and act like you've done it before not like a monkey. If he keeps that stuff up in the NHL kid better learn how to develop some fighting skills like his Dad. Larkin has looked absolutely great so far and Demko has flashes of Gibson goaltending. Most surprising team so far has to be Denmark

#2560133 Nashville has yet to lose 2 games in a row this season

Also glad to have her around I like the updates a lot and Rinne has gone through a lot so it's nice seeing him back to his standards which are elite. Jossi and Jones are two exciting young defenders and with Sarros waiting they are set in goal for a long time.

#2559438 Stars Seguin touching story

Thought I'd share this not only because it features one of the upcoming superstars in this game but also because it's a very touching story:


Story is from 0.00 - 4 minute

Maybe I'm in the minority but I really love that tournament especially this year since it will the only chance of watching McDavid versus Eichel in a game. I don't really care much about the pre-games but a few tendencies are clear:


~ Canadas top two lines are an offensive juggernaut as expected

~ The US has a very deep and balanced team - to me they should be the #1 challenger for Canada

~ Sweden isn't as good as they used to the team will heavily miss Brodin, Forsberg their goaltending has been supbar so far

~ Finland and team Russia are once again the dark horses and if Saros can repeat his stellar gd performance the Fins could be a very tough to beat team again


So let the McEichel show begin :) here we go (what a stupid TSN slogan liked every house is inhouse much better...)

This is one of the best things I've read all day. All week. I don't even hardly care about the Wings loss tonight after reading this. WOOHOO! SCIENCE, *******!

Great news heck this is so much more important than any on ice stuff. Your are tough as nails Mr. Hockey may you be here for a long time

#2557032 Where were team-mates on the Smith headshot

Posted by frankgrimes on 16 December 2014 - 06:28 AM

So much truculence in this thread.

Nothing wrong with that, it's still a shame that nobody stood up for Smith and adding someone other teams fear is never the worst idea in the world.

Also Johnny Hockey, Monahan and the other Flames youngstars can go outthere and do what they want, because they know a bunch of no nonsense guys are having their back. I disagree with a lot of things that Burke says, but when it comes to truculence, beligerence and pugnacity the guy is right. I'm also not going to say sorry for liking something thats been part of hockey since forever and enjoying a good scrap, hard hit and some rough stuff after all this is hockey and not soccer where so called athletes are acting like ******* if someone touches them ...

#2557030 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

Posted by frankgrimes on 16 December 2014 - 05:54 AM

Hopefully his contract will get voided and they send his wife beating disgusting animal ass back to Russia.what a douchebag

Now while I'm not defending him this might be too far.
I've always been a firm believer people deserve a second chance. He should be suspended for the full year. Then like NFL if there is a second incident banned for life.
Rather someone does something major or minor once is an accident twice is a habit or whatever the saying is.
So after a long suspension and after jail time counseling etc etc he shoukd get a second and FINAL chance.

Animals aren't human dogs aren't getting a second chance after they've bitten someone so why should another animal...

Thanks just for the laugh voted for McGrattan

#2555210 All-Star voting

Posted by frankgrimes on 10 December 2014 - 07:13 AM

Haven't seen a thread on this (hope I'm not breaking any rules).. Of course I don't need to say this but just a friendly reminder for everyone to vote for our Red Wings for the all star game! Personally I've throwing a lot of votes for Zetterberg as he is our captain and is one of the most underrated players in the NHL and truly deserves to get a spot after carrying the team for two years straight since Lidstrom departed. I know Z is on a bit of a cold streak, but aside from that he needs more recognition from the league! We all know Pavs already making that roster!


I don't even know where to vote for that thing so that gives a good impression of how much I care about the ASG. The skills and hardest shot competition is nice everything else meh. I'd rather see none of the Wings there, give them a nice vacation and focussing on the stuff that really counts.


But I like the Brawlgame-Idea at least it would be entertaining to watch.

#2555032 It's gotta be asked....What's up with Hank?

Posted by frankgrimes on 09 December 2014 - 04:13 AM

The guy has had surgery in the summer and for sure he is going to say "everything is fine" but recovering from back surgeries takes time and so far I'm impressed that he is still producing. As long as he gets his other gear when it matters the most, he the beard should be fine

#2554781 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by frankgrimes on 08 December 2014 - 07:09 AM


I agree with you, they have had top pick after top pick. Its not that I want Edmonton to necessarily get that pick, I just don't want it to be Florida or Buffalo (though Florida is surprising me this year, and don't seem to be in the basement). Edmonton just seems like the most likely team to take it away from them. I guess I'll hope for Carolina lol.


I have no hate for Buffalo and I would love seeing them getting McDavid. Finally the team has a great owner, the fan-support is still huge - given on where the team is ! - and they are doing this rebuild thing right. The Oilers in my mind have had more than enough first overalls and still couldn't get the job done that's on their management.


Also I don't want to see McDavid in a soon to be relocated/sold market the guy should focus on hockey because he is incredible fun to watch and ridiculously talented.
