#2303559 LGW vs Rangers boards on elimination night

Posted by frankgrimes on 29 May 2012 - 12:04 AM

Hardly understand the attitude of the better team lost thinking, if you lost you weren't the better team, period. People can blame injuries, officiating and stars not shining all they want but at the end if you lose 4 games the other team deservingly won.

That said I really love this board from the first day I didn't feel like a newbie having to answer stupid question like ,,oh no you just joined so what do you know?" I think its the best hockeyboard on the internet. Sure, people get angry and down with this team as do other fans but thats part of being a fan. Fans of weaker teams might be used to the losing or simple stopped to care and really you cant blame them, take Edmonton or the Islanders their management is complete crap and yet the owners are giving them extension ad nauseum. The worst boards I have seen is the Leafs one when they are losing its like "fire this guy, bring in that guy tank it and start from the bottom again" absolutely crazy stuff.

Although I prefer the more fanatic european culture to the more business orientated NHL one, after watching the following I know who the best supporters are and its not even close.

I've been playing it for literally 15 months now its like Lego on a PC.

For guys complaining about the retro graphics there is already a great mod: made by MESA (just yt it to see how it looks), replacing the 8bit look with highresolution textures.

Although the game now has a creative mode I would still recommend Sinpley Player Commandos to everyone. Working on building the Winged Wheel but its so tough to do need to look for other Addons to make it happenI guess.

Finals without an original 6 team in it would be a desaster think about Anaheim versus Ottawa. So go Rags in the east

Cheering hard for Rags Kings. The two Vezinafrontrunners faceing each other one and one. You gotta wonder how much longer Tortarella will sit Scott?

I'm cheering for the Devils too their fans deserve some nice moments. Kovalchuck has really changed himself under Lemair last year doesn't come off as cocky and even does backchecks?! Shame Avery isn't playing for the Rags anymore Brodeur versus Avery would have a huge potential.Am I the only not surprised by this? The Flyers don't play defense they got lucky against Pittsburgh, because they've played even less and had some atrocious performances from Fleury.

#2299134 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by frankgrimes on 04 May 2012 - 04:44 AM

Its really disgusting how spoiled some so called fans behave.

Suter and Parise is nuts but Suter, Parise and making a play for Weber is just out of words. Maybe some people are too young remembering the death Wings era and our turnover only happened because Ilitch took over and created a winning culture with deep pockets for this storied original 6 franchise. In Hockey you can't say something like this is THE and the only place, not everyone likes playing in a big market enviroment with huge expectations. Its only early May and people are already calling for things "Parise and Suter or bust" so if we get either one its bust? One thing for sure Kenny will not go crazy but I fully expect him to overpay for either one and I'm completely fine with that.

Are we an attractive place for free agents? Sure we are an original 6 franchise, the most succesful team since two decades and our players are threatened very well but lets not ked ourselves here others team are looking for shakeups too (Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Boston, Philly with the Pronger situation to name some topdogs in the house) on top of that rising beasts like Nashville will be looking to ice an even better roster next season.

Personally I have some high hopes in terms or roster improvement if we can reload on the fly fine if not I'm more than ready to watch our young promising guns Smith, Nyquist and Jurco grow to the next level.

Honestly I hate winning team bandwagoners if you love your team, you do it thorugh the good times and even more so in bad times because thats what real fans do! You don't change your GF because he is sick or there are some relationship problems you work on it and love her even more, same with your hockeyteam. Sadly, I'm over 9.000 miles away from the Joe so I probably will never see them live but would pay a lot of money to do so.

That said if we can improve in terms of toughness and size that would be a step in the right direction even if we don't land Suter or Parise.

I am sure most of your have heard about the great features of Torchlight 2 one of them being multiplayer and LAN (*hint* f*** you Blizzard) so I thought it would be nice, to have some LGW community sessions once the game is life. I am planning to play an Embermage.

get 'em, desert pups!!

Wouldn't mind seeing Dave Tippett with a Cup....

Tippet is a great coach but no way can this Phönix team go the whole way I still doubt they are beating Trashville

#2297104 #7 Washington Capitals vs. #2 Boston Bruins

Posted by frankgrimes on 25 April 2012 - 10:04 PM

f*** this stupid CBA its time for Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Boston and New York to bring it down finally. I mean what kind of second round is thiis?

at the max 1 original six team other than that only small market teams supported by OUR money thanks to revenue sharing? I didn't care if the Bruins or Caps win but seriously this parity crap has gone too far. Imagine a team like Florida or St. Louis winning the cup, stanley cup parade with an attendance of 5.000 ? *lol*

Guess our only hope rests on the shoulders of Fehr.

Have fun getting bounced against Nashville Phoenix

#2295948 roy possible coach for the habs?

Posted by frankgrimes on 22 April 2012 - 07:53 PM

Oh the memories wasn't it the good old Rejan who kept him in there? Poor Roy has to wait till the Nords are back just having a hard time to believe, Peladau will offer a price of 230 for a team like the Coyotes.

#2295939 Babs calls out Kenny, sort of!

Posted by frankgrimes on 22 April 2012 - 07:34 PM

If Lidström comes back for another year this organization owes him the chance for another cup. I am really glad Babcock is putting pressure on the management there are no excuses this time:

we have the money, we need new top end blood.

f*** retools, rebuilds we just reload!
