#2623581 Adidas Gets NHL Jersey Deal

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 19 August 2015 - 09:49 PM

 
I had the inline version of those skates because of Feds, they were impossible to keep scuff marks off of.

My team wasn't allowed to wear them, but I still bought a pair.
They were damn good looking skates.

Nike started all the "athletic shoe manufacturer getting a piece of the hockey world" in the 90's by slapping the swoosh on Bauer equipment and getting players like Fedorov and Sundin to endorse it. I don't mind it but being old school I think hockey jerseys should be sponsored by hockey manufacturers (Koho, CCM, Bauer).

Feds looked so damn cool though all swooshed out.

Gloves, helmet, pants, stick, and those beautiful white bubble skates.

#2623201 Red Wings Sign D Robbie Russo

Posted by T.Low on 16 August 2015 - 03:13 PM

Article from Chicago area regarding Russo
http://www.secondcit...an-robbie-russo




"Unlike Hawks prospect Ryan Hartman, a West Dundee, Ill. native, and Hawks backup goaltender Scott Darling, a Lemont, Ill. native, Russo did not grow up a Hawks fan despite the proximity to the team. Russo was a Red Wings fan growing up, according to Second City Hockey staff writer Ryan Hood, who attended high school with him for two years."

#2622877 Franzen's Gift to Nyquist

Posted by kipwinger on 11 August 2015 - 03:07 PM

People all over the internet keep saying "I want these sheets!".  They're nuts.  Who the hell wants Mike Babcock's disapproving glare watching over everything they do in bed?  You can almost see him thinking "Luke Glendening works harder than that" whenever you're making love to your partner. 

 

Screw that. 




#2609643 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

#2609641 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by kipwinger on 22 May 2015 - 10:28 AM

Slava Fetisov, former Red Wing defenseman and star of the wildly popular documentary "Red Army", wants Russian law to ban Russian hockey players from coming to the U.S. before their 28th birthday. 

 

You'll recall Fetisov's story.  He bucked Soviet law preventing him from coming to the U.S. to play hockey, by refusing to play for their national team.  In the documentary he explained how he wanted to be free to make his own decisions, make his own money, and determine his own future, without being coerced by federal authorities. 

 

And now he's a federal authority.  And he's trying to restrict young players from having those very same liberties. 

 

Here's a thought Slava.  Rather than using a draconian legal system to force people to stay against their will, how's about you work toward reforming said legal system, and equally restrictive and authoritarian economic policies, so that people will WANT to stay in your s***ty country.  You are, after all, a Senator. 

 

What a dick.

#2621802 Jonathan Quick on snipers, including Datsyuk

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 29 July 2015 - 02:38 PM

Jonathan Quick has a piece in the Player's Tribune on snipers in the NHL.  It's a good read an an interesting perspective on goaltending.  He picks Datsyuk as one of the snipers to highlight. 

 

http://www.theplayer...-kings-snipers/

 

 

 

Most guys have a little tell. You look at where the puck is in relation to their feet, or the way they’re bending their knees to get ready to shoot, and you just know what’s going to happen before it happens. But the problem with Datsyuk is that he fools you with his intentions. He will be way out on the wall with his hands, feet, and eyes positioned for a cross-ice pass — and it’s the right decision. It’s what 99 percent of players will do in that situation. So you instantly start cheating your eyes over to where he’s going to pass. Next thing you know — what the hell? — the puck is behind you in the net. He shot it. Who shoots from there? Datsyuk shoots from there.

Iam sure Habs fans responded to Semin signing by screaming " merde ". Want to give you coach migraine headaches ? Sign Semin. Habs did a favor to other 29 teams by taking him of market.


Montreal probably wants a new coach and are hoping Semin will make him quit.

#2621496 Jim Devellano on Mantha's play: "Very disappointing"

Posted by Dabura on 24 July 2015 - 12:42 PM

I agree, I think it was very un-wing like, but I think his statements are accurate at least.

 

Devallano's comments are ridiculous. All the Mantha hate is ridiculous.

 

The Demise of Anthony Mantha Has Been Greatly Exaggerated
