#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

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 *Mod Warning Post #'s 200 & 219*

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.




#2434298 USA Olympic '14 Jerseys

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 August 2013 - 04:30 AM

So far the worst of them all, horrible design. Fake laces and blurry stars on the shoulders really?

 

The USA K-Swiss logo is absolutely disgusting having your country associated with a trademark should be a no-go. Even though I am not from the US I really hope this is just your third jersey and the real one will be revealed later.




#2434211 It's time - to predict 2014 Team Canada

Posted by frankgrimes on 27 August 2013 - 03:38 AM

At first Ithought wow someone has some great photoshop skills but since TSN confirmed this just wow. I don't know but how does this help the players? They might see the bigger angles but other than that? Playing hockey office is not the same as on ice hence why rollerhockey is useless.




#2434153 Change to goalie pads.

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 August 2013 - 05:53 AM

The NHL hates goalies just excellent making the second toughest job on the team - goons having the toughest - even more complicated.

 

Want to bring back excitment to the NHL? Allow hitting, hip checks and other stuff again instead of trying to force more offense.




#2433891 Capitals sign Grabovski (1 year deal)

Posted by frankgrimes on 23 August 2013 - 12:05 AM

Real nice signing for the Caps. IMO it's actually an upgrade to Ribeiro. In fact, if the Wings hadn't signed Weiss, I was hoping we'd sign Grabo. Will be interesting to see how much $ they gave him.

 

Seems to be a show your worth type of contract, if he does well Grabos next one is going to better if not, well KHL bound. Obviously I thought Grabo as a former Russian would have been KHL bound good for him to get another shot with a NHL club. The caps once again are a high powered offensive team with questionable defense, they either miss the playoffs or are looking at another first round exit.




#2433721 NHL 14

Posted by frankgrimes on 21 August 2013 - 12:10 AM

Demo comes out Tuesday, anyone excited for this game?

 

I used to be excited about NHL X but that time is long gone, so here is what I expect:

 

- slightly improved textures if even that

- former gone features now being introduced as new and super-gameplay relevant

- better music pool of artists

- incomplete rosters

 

so basically a rushed version of NHL 13 with some updates. Why can't companies just pass 1 year, release an updated roster and come back with a real improved one in 2 or maybe 3 years? That's just mind boggling.




#2433701 San Jose Sharks decide to use practice jerseys from now on...

Posted by frankgrimes on 20 August 2013 - 08:11 PM

I love how everyone hates on these jerseys for being so plain... our jerseys are even more plain... take the stripe off the arm on the wings jerseys and you basically have the wings practice jerseys


Well if you take off something from a Jersey it will look different. The point is, there isn't anything on those Sharks jerseys making them stand out from only ones used for practise.

Somehow this jersey thing has gotten out of hand the Stars had a perfect one some years and yet they have decided to make it worse every year. If it'snot broken don't fix it, why is that so hard to understand for some nhl teams?

The Wings jersey is fine, the colors are grisp and sharp, it's clean and not overloaded.

Posted by frankgrimes on 20 August 2013 - 07:41 PM

They really look like practise jersey, very bland and kina meh. I thought the old ones were a lot better
