#2574362 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 February 2015 - 11:53 AM

this thread sounds entirely too familiar. Apparently a goalie isn't allowed to have a couple bad games after missing over a month of hockey. Trade Jimmy for a 7th rounder and bring up that ahl goalie that lets in 4+ goals every game and roll with that

Just got in due to an imbecile driving a huge rig for the gas fracking out here somehow blowing his transmission while making a right turn into their pipe yard and completely blocking route 29 (a two lane highway here in rural northeast PA) and we sat in traffic for over a half hour before they came up to tell the cars what had happened and the road was completely blocked. Nothing like driving on dirt roads that weren't fully plowed in a Ford C-Max with not the highest ground clearance.... At least rehearsal went well and my wife has decided to sing this season.

What is the short recap? I know Abdelkader hit the bingo, bango, bunghole on the PP, and saw the delay of game penalty. Thanks in advance.

Are the wheels on the bus? (Or tank). Did they light a mup? (Sorry, couldn't help that one). :)

I miss the neg button. Seemed like a more efficient way to tell someone their opinion sucked rather than the threads being taken over by the personal attack posts.

Holland is god


I'm not expecting Ken Holland to be the creator of all time, space, matter, and energy.  Nor do I expect him to redeem my everlasting soul.  But I'll reserve judgement until all the facts have come to light. 

#2568372 Great Brandon Prust Article

Posted by sputman on 04 February 2015 - 07:08 PM

I like fighting. I miss the days when if we were losing 5-1 somebody would give the fans something to cheer for.


But Prust himself admits that he's out to run people. The only difference between he and a rat is that he'll fight. His job essentially is protecting his team from people like himself.


Rats are the guys who show zero respect for opponents. They’ll go after the top skill player and take runs at goalies and then won’t answer the bell when it comes time to fight.



In my head I’m thinking, How am I going to run him (Lundqvist) without getting a penalty?


#2564937 1/20 GDT: Wild 4 @ Red Wings 5 (SO)

Posted by Echolalia on 20 January 2015 - 04:01 PM

I think I figured out the lines, guys.  Babs is ALL about overcoming adversity and earning the right to feel good about yourself and working your way back up through the lineup, so anytime someone starts playing poorly, Babs gets excited because this is an opportunity for a player to grow, so he demotes them to the third or fourth line.  Except Sheahan has been on the club for over a year, now, and hasn't had a poor stretch yet. And Babs is baffled and upset because Sheahan hasn't had that opportunity to build character or whatever.  So Babcocks is all "whatever, I'll give you adversity myself!  Glendening!  Miller!  You guys are playing with Sheahan now!"  And that's the story of how Mike Babcock saved Sheahan from himself.

#2562211 McGratton on waivers

We're simply the best.


Better than all the rest.


Better than anyone.




Sorta like McGrattan.


I can't tell if he's saluting or looking for a job.




Neither. He's scaring a rat away.

#2562061 McGratton on waivers

Posted by rick zombo on 09 January 2015 - 03:32 PM

Sad day for hockey, this league is quickly becoming something it shouldn't be.


I hope he finds a place on another team, or a job in the front office somewhere. What af****** league it has a place for rats but no place for great energy players and like Burke said I'm sure all thef****** greenpeace folks are happy now. Of course the softest team - which not long ago used to have the HW champion - in the league willk pass so I'm not getting my hopes up.


How the hell does Burke not step in here ? He is the president and should overrule the GM in that case it's a bad day for hockey


Front office? Doing what? Security? :lol:

Quincey was solid, and that's an accurate way to describe his game last night. Smith and Kronwall were good, DeKeyser was great.

There are varying degrees of positive play. You balance out the positive things that players do with any gaffes they make. Smith and Kronner made some real solid plays, and maybe made one or two small mistakes., DeKeyser looked great all around, IMO, and didn't make any noticeable errors. You know who else didn't make any noticeable errors? KFQ, because if he DID... if he did, you better believe LGW would be all over that. So yes, he looked solid. He didn't stand out with anything special, but he didn't make any big mistakes, either. Solid.

#2538875 Krys Barch unloads his frustrations

Posted by kipwinger on 07 October 2014 - 04:20 PM

It's all a moot point anyway...No way in hell does Babcock dress anyone of the likes of a Tootoo, or an Orr.

Is that what I said?


PK is only a part of the game...4th liners take to ice outside of that...Try not putting words in my mouth.


Oh, enforcers are better at some other part of the game than our fourth line?  What's that?  Fighting? 


Well that doesn't sound like circular logic at all does it?  We should sign a fighter because they're better at fighting than non-fighters.  Smart. 


Unless you weren't talking about fighting.  Which part of the game are enforcers better at again?  Taking penalties?


If the mass waiving of goons like Orr and McLaren this offseason wasn't already an indication that having enforcers no your roster is retarded, wait until the end of the season and see how Calgary did with their enforcer fourth line.  We already know it will give Krys Barch a boner, but outside of that I suspect that the team will stink and the line itself will be putrid statistically. 


But here's the kicker.  That's what Burke wants.  He want a s***ty team so he can draft McDavid.  And while his team is s***ty, he'd like to sell some tickets, so he goons it up.  This isn't a strategy to be a good team.  It's a marketing ploy to be a bad team but still excite dummies like Krys Barch.  Apparently it worked.

Exactly what I was saying DeGraa... How you read "this kid is a keeper" and translate that to "this kid is a generational talent" is beyond me...
