#2369918 Datsyuk Leaving?!

Posted by frankgrimes on 16 March 2013 - 05:34 AM

Pasha has nothing left to prove here, a theke is named after him, the guy has won Stanley Cups and is easily one of the best hockey players and took a huge paycut to re-sign in Detroit. So whatever he decides to do, I won't hold it up against him. I am sure, he is missing his friends and family, so enjoy his last season.

#2366105 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 March 2013 - 02:52 PM

The thread is "Should visors be mandatory in the NHL." 


His post was:

It's pretty clear he is saying in regards to visors he thinks it should  be 100% a players choice.  He made no claims about other sports or other protective equipment.  Your post claiming he's saying NFL players shouldn't have to wear helmets has nothing to do with his statement.
You either misinterpreted what he was saying or misrepresented it just to argue.  I'm not going to diagram it out for you any more than that so I suggest you drop it. 


Exactly my point :-)


It is their choice, don't babysit them. Like you've mentioned, this is about hockey not about others ports. Hockey players are tough they know what they are doing and are smart enough, to be aware of the consequences.

#2365956 Goalie Salaries. How much is Howard worth?

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 March 2013 - 02:47 AM

Anyting more then that......he can go take a hike!  Lets see what Mrazak can do.


I hope the Monster will stay healthy and pull together some great wins, this should lower Howards demands a bit I guess.

#2365949 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 March 2013 - 02:32 AM

Grown men, playing a tough sport so it should be 100 % the players choice, if they want to wear one. Having said that, as with Kevlar socks I think after the first major injury if they still refuse to wear more protection like gear they should pay a bit of their insurance by themselves (based on their salary).

#2361600 Trade Deadline buyers or sellers?

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 February 2013 - 03:04 PM

I hope they are sellers, this team is in it's transistion years and with the upcoming - experts claimed so - strong draft I believe they should look at the big longterm and not the shortterm picture here.


Getting Weiss will for sure cost at least a 2 if not a first rounder and I really hope Holland doesn't repeat his Quincey failure.

#2358411 Cody McCormick waived by Sabres

Posted by frankgrimes on 20 February 2013 - 05:29 PM

I negelted to mention top 3 fighter out of people that bring more then just fighting to the team.


Erskine can take a regulary shift, he will not be a point producer but his skating skills are decent enough to be a regular NHL player and he is really tough.

#2355697 Sens Karlsson suffers lacerated Achilles tendon

Posted by frankgrimes on 15 February 2013 - 06:26 AM

 It's Matt bastard Cooke for crying out loud, so the benefit of the doub t has no place here. I also don't care if it was intentional or not the fact remains, whenever crap happens the Penguins are somehow always involved in it and their owner is one of the guys always screaming for players safety, if something bad is happening to HIS players. Well Lemieux how about screaming for Kevlar socks now?


To be honest watching Karlsson play has made the loss of Lidström a little bit easier, because his talent does remind me a bit of our alltime great. So come back soon kid.


I wish Cooke would have to answer for it, but it is not gonna happen and the reason for that is in the AHL Steve MacIntyre. Nobody is going to fight this guy or try any cheapshots with him in the lineup, so Pittsburgh can basically call him up the next time they are going to play against the Senators and nothing will happen. The league should have thrown the book at Cooke after the Savard thing they didn't and thats unexcuseable.

#2355694 Durango Kinect mandatory

Posted by frankgrimes on 15 February 2013 - 06:18 AM

Note: Rumour


according to this site http://www.geek.com/...inect-20130212/ M$ next console won't work = start without having your kinect plugged in and calibrated.  I know M$ is lately known for stupid things but honestly can they really be that stupid? I play games, just to play them I am not interested in jumping around, yelling and do some stupid gestures with my hands. When will M$ come to the conclusion that Kinect will not hold a candle to the Wii.


Also I find the discussion here http://www.gamefaqs....ox-360/65442319 laughfull at best, the guy doesn't even understand that its still an accessoire only difference is, this time it will be included in the Durango bundle.


Combine that with the rumours about required internet connection, no used games and other crap I refuse to believe that M$ would really be that stupid but then again, who knows, they really seem to be desperate now http://www.gamespot....ncement-6403894 guess what most people don't care about all these stupid gimmicks, they just want a powerful console to play games and not an entertainment hub, filled with netflix, youtube and whatever that's what tablets, smartphones and pcs are for.


Mind you still rumours, but I think the powers will be something like this:


Ps 4 >>>> Durango >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Wii U


so if Sony is playing their cards right, they could have a huge advantage this time.

#2355385 Sens Karlsson suffers lacerated Achilles tendon

Posted by frankgrimes on 14 February 2013 - 03:37 AM

I am so sick of that POS, the sad part is he won't have to answer for this "accident" - yeah sure it is an accident put your damn foot down and skate like others!! - the Penguins have guys like MacIntyre and Engelland to protect him..really unfortunate the book of tough guys should be thrown at him every game.


Aaron Ward mentioned on TSN that players are using their legs to gain more control now, because pushing and grabbing is under a heavy ref microscope. So good job NHL instead of some pushes and a bit of grabbing now are getting their legs cut by guys that shouldn't be in the league any longer.


This league is becoming more and more of a joke give this idiot 30 games.

#2354172 Around the NHL- Feb 10th

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 February 2013 - 05:39 AM

Milbury is an absolute idiot, the guy will never say anything against the Bruins. It's like Edwards "oh no Thornton got his ass handed to him by Scott......but Scott is only a goon and playing single digits per night" how about giving credit to one of the best enforcers in the game you damn Bruins homers.


Chicago is damn hot since the start if they keep this up, they are in for a deep playoff run and I absolutely hate that fact, so hopefully they are going to come down to earth soon. I am really surprised how quickly Vancouver has turned their season around, they are riding a 5 game winning streak right now and both goalies are hot. Blues are in some kind of a slump but I still think this team is in for a deep playoff run which doesn't make it easier for us to sneak into the playoffs.


I really didn't expect the Kings to start that sloppy, this is basically the same roster that won the Stanley Cup, they don't need to figure out a new system or having to attach themselves to new linemates but yet they seem to be not clicking at all, maybe a postponed Stanley Cup hangover? 


Devils are the most surprisingly team to me, I thought after losing Parise and Brodeur getting older they could miss the playoffs but now they are dominating the east and are doing so against great teams, such as Pittsburgh or New York really impressive. Hopefully they can figure out their ownership situation soon would suck seeing all the work Lamourillo (spelling)? has done going to another place.

#2351091 2/1 GDT : Blues 3 at Red Wings 5 (Z with Hat Trick)

Posted by frankgrimes on 04 February 2013 - 02:17 PM

Backes I wouldn't really call a dirty player, but he gets caught up sometimes with his adrenaline where he doesn't like to slow down at all before hits and charges at guys. He also has an issue sometimes where he hits guys in the numbers, but at the same time the player he hits puts himself in that position less than a second before the hit is delivered, which is a fault of a very high % of NHLers. But I will tell you this, If I could have Backes on the Wings, you bet your ass i'd take him. Teams know when he's on the ice cause they don't want to end up in the 5th row. He's tough as nails, he's a decent point producer and he's one intense MF. Imagine him on a line with Helm and Tootoo and tell me that doesn't make you salivate... Backes is like Brown on the Kings. And I'll go on record right now as a die hard 28 years and counting Wings fan, my pick for the Cup this year is the Blues and Backes is gonna be their driving force.


For the cup their goaltending has to be a lot better, they are deep at almost every position other than that. My picks are Rangers and Kings doubt NJ can repeat their magical run without Zach.


As much as I would love Backes wearing the winged wheel I'd rather have Pietrangelo and he is by far the more realistic option, he will be RFA in the upcoming summer :-) So lets hope SL is going to lowball him an he makes to the point where offersheets are allowed.

You know facebook has had these exact rights for some time right?


Doesn't make it a better, a company should have no rights at that kind of stuff without your permission.

Nice to win but seriously that phantom 5minute call was just stupid, referees should be held more accountable. Don't want to see games decided in such a fashion one way or the other.

God refs watch the game and rereread your damn rules, don't turn hockey into a joke.
