#2438791 Torres out with ACL for the Sharks?

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 September 2013 - 07:44 PM


Seems to me someone is saying Kronners is as dirty as Torres and Cooke. I'd have to disagree with that assessment.


 
Ya I don't get it


Me 2

I can't for the sake of myself understand how Kronwall can be connected to these two carreer-killers. Getting Kronwalled is for sure tough and hard but Cooke and Torres are headhunting idiots. Ask Savard, Hossa and of course Karlsson and they are just a few examples for their "accomplishments"

#2438558 Report: NHL to have 5 outdoor games in 2014-15.

Posted by frankgrimes on 23 September 2013 - 01:37 PM

Hey NHL how about this 15 outdoor games a year so all franchises are getting their NOVEL game, this league the board of governors and the PR are the biggest joke either. Instead of locking out the players one should lockout the leagues frontoffice, because they don't care about integrity nor tradition. our beloved game is going downhill fast.


#2438448 buffalo and toronto fight

Posted by frankgrimes on 23 September 2013 - 12:10 AM

lovingnit that's oldschool hockey, Clarkson is showing a lot of balls for going after Scott. Would not have a chance though, more stuff like this please that's my type of hockey.


#2438134 Capitals to host 2015 Winter Classic

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 September 2013 - 01:34 PM

Another great move by the great NHL giving the Winter Classic to the Caps before the state of hockey, totally deserving of course... God when skill the owners finally wake up and hire a good guy


#2436425 Boyes and Thomas trying out for Panthers

Posted by frankgrimes on 13 September 2013 - 03:24 AM

 

The problem with Thomas is none of the top 15 teams in the league need a number 1 goalie which leaves him on a crappy team, his own fault really.

 

Focusing on things like faith, friendship and family is never a bad thing. The guy is already extremely rich has won everything and took a year off Rask would have taken over at some point, so I really don't blame him. I mean look at the Flames who is their number 1 goalie now? They could really need a guy like Timmay or even the "Perds" if Rinne isn't healthy anytime soon.




#2436181 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by frankgrimes on 12 September 2013 - 12:28 PM

Well what I am now going to type now is nothing against Cleary but seriously I am starting to wonder if Holland is showing to much loyality here? Guess the team was to young for Holland last season? Re-signing Bertuzzi was bad, signing Samuelson was stupid not going after an enforcer and bringing back Cleary is ridiculous. Maybe it is really time for Kenny to become VP and give the job to someone else? I am really starting to think, the overaching of last season has not been a good thing. Maybe the front office really believes thr team was close when in fact they just played beyond their overall talent level. Why is it so tough to make room for the young guys? Damnit


#2435959 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by frankgrimes on 12 September 2013 - 06:45 AM

The guy would be a perfect fit for Nashville or New Jersey, both are desperate for offense and youth he provides both. Hard for me to understand why they haven't signed him yet.




#2435885 Rookie you're most looking forward to watching this season

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 September 2013 - 04:47 PM

Dekeyser by far, he is from Michigan a big kid and I hope he bulked up, can you imagine what he could with 215+ lbs?


#2435760 Osgood to fill in Larry Murphy's job

Posted by frankgrimes on 10 September 2013 - 07:20 PM

Hope he remains as a goalie coach, still sad that Murphy was let go.


#2435749 Boyes and Thomas trying out for Panthers

Posted by frankgrimes on 10 September 2013 - 06:37 PM

Brad Boyes and Tim Thomas have both been signed to professional tryout contracts by the Florida Panthers. Boyes i could see sticking with the Panthers but Thomas may be out of luck if he wants to be the starter in Florida as Jacob Markstrom may be finally ready to be a number 1 goalie. At any rate i'm interested to see if Thomas can return to his allstar form.

I'am very happy for Timmay classy guy and a great mentor for Markstrom. Boyes will be a great tutor for Gudbranson.

Hope, Timmay Thomas will return to his allstar-style.


#2435105 Bettman getting a raise (again) 8 - 8,3 million in 2012 - 2013

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 September 2013 - 11:08 AM

 

He gets paid 8 million dollars. This is offensive to me. Not outrageous, because I know how the world works. Just offensive.

 

To me it's offensive and outrageous I mean, the owners are all extremely rich what do they need a commissioner for? If you care about the sport you should hire someone, who 1. respects the integrity 2. has experience within the game 3. cares about tradition and 4. is welcomed by owners and players.

 

There are so many former greats but yet a guy who stands for everything ANTI-hockey is getting the job, players hate him, fans hate him and only some **** owners like him it's very well known that Ilitch can't the little weasel either.




#2435003 Bettman getting a raise (again) 8 - 8,3 million in 2012 - 2013

Posted by frankgrimes on 04 September 2013 - 05:54 PM

Who cares about Stern (NBA), Selig (MLB) or Goddell (NFL) this thread is about hockey and when it comes to hockey he is overpaid. 3 lockouts are unexcuseable, making more than the product people actually want to watch is just pure nuts. There is also a reason, why commissioners are getting boo'ed so much they are bad for the sport and leagues would be better off without them.

 

Guess what a hockeyguy would cost less, not trash the sport with his growing the game crap AND actually be welcomed when he presents the Stanley Cup.

 

Can't believe people are still defending the guy, who has cost us one year of Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Yzerman and a prime Lidström.

It's a f....cking shame the guy is making than 90 % of the players, responsible for failed franchises, 3 lockouts in a row and the reason teams like this can't ice the best possible roster. How can owners justify around 270k/franchise for this guy? Absolutely hilarious, give a hockeyguy the job!




#2434465 State your unpopular opinion

Posted by frankgrimes on 30 August 2013 - 01:17 PM

I loathe everything connected with social media, be it Twitter or Facebook

I think hockey was better pre 2005 (skillwise also)

I prefer family corporates instead of big ones - if you are against GV 10 you are hating children! *g*

I couldn't care less if my car is ecnomy friendly or not, it should be fast, comfortable and provide safety for me and others.

Not voting anybody is better than trying to figure out, who of the two idiots might be the bigger one.
