#2506030 How about some love for Howard!

Posted by Richdg on 04 April 2014 - 08:51 PM

robo, no one has said, not once that Howard has had a great year. he was bad in Nov/dec when he was hurt. Bad knee, drained fluid from it twice. TBH he shouldn't have been playing. Since then he is much closer to his career norms. His career save % is about .920 which is top 8 in the league of the guys that are starters. Everyone has bad years, injuries etc...... You can trade out goalies every year. Doesn't work that way. Now for the last 2 months he has been playing much better, and oh by the way, that is the same period were we have moved back into strong PO contention.

That's the stupidest argument ever as I'm sure you're one of the people who say ovi is a floater to? But yet he has 40 goals so far.

Franzen floating and not playing defense is kind of the same idea?

Franzen won't last until he is 40 and I doubt z does as well. Now dats? Ya he can IMO.

Saying Weiss is a top free agent to me is laughable as I've been down on the signing since day one. And I don't care for Alfie signing either...nyquist is pretty much our leading goal scorer with quite a few less games. Imagine if he was in team to start the year like I said he should but couldn't because of Hollands STUPID signings.


You don't care for the Alfie signing? No offense but I'm glad you're not our GM. He's been one of our better, more consistent forwards this year, 3rd in team scoring, and has that bomb of a shot. Oh, and he's right handed and not named Mikael Samuelsson. Seems like a win win to me. 


That said, I agree with you on the Weiss signing. I still don't and didn't like it, but I'm thinking if he's had the hernia since the start or very early into the year, he hasn't been up to snuff. I'm leaving my judgement until after the season, possibly next.

#2435899 Report: Cleary to sign with PHI, 3 yrs, $2.75m/yr, NTC

f*** you Dan Cleary just leave already!  If Ken Holland resigns Cleary, he immediately should be fired, I'm not exaggerating. 

#2431624 ESPN/Sportscenter gives the NHL 2.7% of its time

Posted by Seraph on 27 July 2013 - 07:01 AM

Screw ESPN. When they do talk about hockey it's to bash on it. When they used to show games they also had very poor pre and post game coverage. After the Stanley Cup clinching games I remember them cutting out to some other dumb sport the second the cup was lifted by the captain. They simply didn't care about the sport and wanted to get on with the next program. It was a rough road to NBCSN via OLN and "Versus" but I am much happier that we are on our own network with the mainstream NBC name. At least there hockey is the premiere sport and they pay it respect with complete coverage. This is actually one of the things Bettman has done right in my opinion.

#2409064 Cleary breakaway (stickless)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 21 May 2013 - 08:53 PM

Did anyone see karlsson put his skate on top of the puck and kick it to an open man for a scoring chance? That wad sick. Too bad there was nobody for Abby to pass to

Z does that fairly often along the boards.  He steps on the puck so it's really hard for a guy to dig out with his stick, then he looks around and kicks it to a teammate. 

#2406089 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by Nev on 18 May 2013 - 02:03 AM

Welcome to modern sports journalism.  I was going to say modern US sports journalism, but alas this kind of cheap, unintelligent, childish, completely-lacking-in-insight trash has spread over the pond :(  Its the same kind of journalism that produces the Team Win = They're Great!  Team Lose = THEY SUCK!  FIRE EVERYONE mentality.


Someone mentioned Woody Paige, and they're spot on, its exactly the same kind of playground writing that he spouted (and which lest we forget, Detroit sportswriters joined in with).  If a blackhawks fan came on here and started posting stuff like that they'd be banned as a troll and rightfully so.

I agree the turning point in Game 2 was the Okposo/Niskanen fight.


Didn't know Okposo would drop the gloves.
