#2310396 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by frankgrimes on 27 June 2012 - 11:29 AM

Sure it were both, but the owners celebrated like they "won" and well they got *everything* in the CBA.

Now they are saying it's not good enough anymore? Give me a break.

Fehr already said the players would be willing to accept status quo. This to screams another lockout > owners fault.

#2308611 We Need to Get Tougher to Play Against

Posted by frankgrimes on 22 June 2012 - 02:59 AM

Finally the management gets it its a relief seeing Nil and especially Holland stating, what we as fans have been saying for years now. My ideal bottom 6 forward would be a guy like Bolland. I am glad, we do have cap space signing guys like Scott, Prust, Konopka and maybe Macintyre (doubt Pitts trades with us though), would easily make us one of the toughest teams in the league. Mess with Zetterberg? Good luck next shift against Scott :pokey:

I know its just a dream but think about that off season:
skill: Parise and/or Suter:
toughness: Konopka, Prust, Scottt and Macintyre

2 big problems fixed in one season now thats a retool!

Nil saying that this draft isn't as strong as they hoped means, we can take some risks and draft physical guys who may or may not pan out.

#2307781 Exit interview with legendary Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom

Posted by frankgrimes on 18 June 2012 - 02:28 AM

Here you are sitting with a guy worth 7 Norris Trophies, 12 Times All Star, 4 Stanley Cups and a in my mind top 3 All Time defenseman and he wants the Wikipedia page containing at first his work ethic including how he came ready to play every game - you can't get more humble than that. I gonna miss this player so much, just pure class...a perfect human.

Will have a hard time not chocking when they raise his number.

I want to do something special with my Lidström jersey any ideas? Thought about buying a glossy red-white border and a nice swedish flag as a background?

#2307678 If we fail to reload with top UFAs we should?

Posted by frankgrimes on 17 June 2012 - 04:01 AM

I know everyone is high on Parise and Suter, but lets assume we dont get them...the drop off is huge so wouldnt it be better to start the youth movemen? Next years UFA class is extremely loaded so I would prefer that even if our PO streak would come to an end ! Thoughts?

#2306822 2012 SCF : Los Angeles Kings vs. New Jersey Devils

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 June 2012 - 10:25 PM

What an amazing team 16:4 is that impressive although it wont beat our octopus run back in the days! Heads off to the Kings

Couldn't be happier for Carter, Richards, Penner and Lewis. The Devils showed great class it would have been easy for them to goon it up but they didn't and kept it honest, great finals sucks hockey is now over for some time. I want the summer to end and hockey to start again!

Hockey >>>>>>> every sport on this planet

Why do people care so much about the ratings? I couldn't give less about it and guess what such a perfect execution by the Kings was fun in its own way. Yeah I know we are out but yo ugotta give credit where its due and the Kings so far deserve a lot of that save for Brown.

#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.


#2301085 Minecraft

Posted by frankgrimes on 13 May 2012 - 08:06 PM

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.
