#2550184 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by frankgrimes on 20 November 2014 - 12:50 PM

Easily duped.  By his parents.   


His parents bought the house because they had power of attorney.  And the SEC hasn't exactly done a great job of protecting the US economy, let alone one guy.


I do agree that firing his agent and not replacing him was a giant mistake.  His parents, teammates, friends all should've been pointing that out to him.  He sounds naive.  I guess I just don't judge a 25 year old kid in that situation harshly for trusting his parents.  It'd be a different story if he blew it all himself on houses, cars, etc. 



Agreed yeah it was a mistake but nobody in his right mind would believe that your own family is taking 15 million $ and turn it into nothing.  Sad story indeed at least now he fill find out who his real friends are nice to see that the Jackets are standing behind him also.

Pronger, Lidström should obviously be locks

I don't care if Fedorov ever makes it or not.

You might want to add some punctuation after "horrible".


I agree, this is horrible.  Thoughts and prayers to his family, loved ones.


Thanks man sorry what I meant was:


This is horrible

My prayers are for his family and loved ones


Never ever would I write horrible thoughts ...damn of mistake of mine so sorry

#2548084 General discussion for tonight's games

Posted by frankgrimes on 09 November 2014 - 06:03 AM

Not a fan of Crosby but what a show against the Sabers...5 point night ridiculous. I've watched the Preds - Blues what a great game that was, Pekka Rinne - so happy he's healthy - is an unbeatable wall when he is on his game.


I always liked Jeff Carter and Mike Richards both got unfairly critized in Philadelphia, get them away from all that attention and they shine. Also happy for Kopitar breaking his scoring slump, maybe the best european player in the game right now.

#2547659 Leafs' Ashton suspended 20 games for violating PED policy

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 November 2014 - 04:40 PM

 This league is so ridiculous it's not even funny:


slam someone through the glass...$ 2.500 fine when you are making 14.000.000 a year

spear someone...$ 5.000 fine for a 6 mill per player

slam an opponents face on the ice...14 games

using performance enhancing help...20 games



summary: f*** you NHL the whole front office needs to get cross checked by Steve Macintyre so they'll go back to their greedy, non integrity life.

#2547655 Jersey Sponsorship

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 November 2014 - 04:34 PM

Enjoy it..it will be the same bulls*** as in europe where some clubs are not only selling out their jerseys but some are also changing their game-colors to match the ones of a sponsor. It's a horrible thing and makes buying jerseys almost useless because you want to represent a club not a damn sponsor when you are paying a good junk of money for that stuff.


The day the NHL gets rid of that stupid current front-office can't come soon enough we need someone at the helm who is willing to protect the integrity and tradition of the sport.


Rogers, ads on jerseys, less fighting and more and more showboaters entering the league...hockey is fast becoming something it shouldn't be.

#2544682 10/25 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Flyers 4

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 October 2014 - 04:09 PM

Just finished rewatching the game and some things to note:


- the PP is still atrocious call up XO and see how it goes

- clear the damn crease we didn't do it against the Habs and it cost us, we didn't do it against the Flyers and it (again) cost us. There is a reason why other teams are pushing, crosschecking other players out of there ..if the goalie can't see the puck he can't make the save !


Goose needs to find a way to react the tighter defense and adjusted systems when he is on the ice, everyone knew opponents would make an effort to figure out how to defend against Goose, Tatar ..now it's their turn to react.


It's also very obvious that we can't count on the veterans to bail us out in every game anymore, so a more balanced pressure point on the shoulders of more players would be nice.

#2544141 10/23 GDT : Penguins 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 October 2014 - 12:35 AM

#2544139 future captains?

Posted by frankgrimes on 24 October 2014 - 12:34 AM

C - Danny D not even a question in my mind

A - Abdelkader / Nyquist

A - Larkin


I'd love to go for the local boys hattrick if all three are staying long enough, they for sure should have a shot at it. Danny is obviously a no brainer

#2543455 Rating the Defense through 6 games

Posted by frankgrimes on 22 October 2014 - 07:03 PM

Emelin is a constant hard hitting def and his hits are clean. I'm saying that Kronwall isn't going for the hits, once in a while...
I would do backflips on my balcony if he ever comes, great player


Agreed I've been a huge kronwall fan thanks to his his but they've become to rare
