#2485336 USA-Canada Thread

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 February 2014 - 08:54 PM

Canada is still trying to figure out line combinations that will work.

They will.


I don't understand why they haven't hired blue adams yet, seeing as how babs is a nit wick and all...


very excited for this game though, hope my fellow canadians beat the USA, but really i don't like very many players on either team, actually kinda rooting for team Zetterbeard, c'mon boys win it for your captains ailing back!

The other games that most of us were on here were on the weekend.  This game was on during work hours, hence the drop in Canadian activity.


agreed, i can't even watch it at work, i had to check the scores on breaks, or i would have been on here... There is nothing to be ashamed of in Canada barely scraping out the win when they outshot Latvia 57-16, that goalie was simply unreal, he could have stopped a golf ball in a soccer net

#2484962 Wings go to Mexico

You completely missed the point, obviously.
No, I don't expect anyone to be outraged.   I was merely pointing out how silly it is for people to freak out about players going to Russia, because of the possible threat of violence, and not saying a word about players going to Mexico, when Mexico is WAYYY more violent than Russia is.
Obviously you didn't read the thread about the players not going to Russia because of "potential violence".

I just want to point out that they play hockey in Detroit... A Mexican resort is far less scary then Detroit at night.

If you guys want to know why people want Canada to lose at hockey, just read this thread.  The entitlement runs deep.  I've read several posts that have already awarded Canada gold so I don't even know why they're still playing the games since nobody else even has a chance.  Talk about rose-coloured glasses.
I'm with LeftWinger, I want Canada to lose every chance they get, BECAUSE of the entitlement.  Having said that, I definitely want to play Canada in this tournament so I can see the maple tears fall from the heavens (and so there are no excuses).  I'd prefer it was for gold, but I'll take a ticket to the gold on their backs.
The US can win this and so can Canada, but they play the games for a reason.

Right, the long posts that take up every page belittling Canada, and not giving them any respect is so much better. Wanna know why the US hasn't won the gold in 30 some years, it's overly inflated egos, thinking your better at everything and no one works as hard as you. Comparing Slovenia Slovakia Norway and Austria is like arguing with a child, it's pointless, and at the end of the day you don't sound any smarter for it. Just read through these posts if you need to figure out why pretty much every country hates the usa, sorry to say it but at this point I honestly hope USA gets upset in the quarter finals just so you guys shut up already about how the US has the greatest hockey team to ever grace Olympic ice.

Tatar in the shootout. f*** yea.
Russia minus Datsyuk and Malkin are really really bad.

I wonder if they will let Ovie sell souvenirs while he just stands in one spot all game...

Cbc announcer always is saying stuff like they've really tightened that box, that's a tight box, Russia can't get into that tight box, or my favourite creepy one, oh Ya, look at that tiny little box.

Yeah actually you did compare them by saying team USA has also not faced a medal contender (after I referred to Norway and Austria being lucky draws). Team Slovakia is much more respected and has a much better chance for a medal than either Norway or Austria. And it's not my fault that team USA hasn't played their 2nd game yet. The point is, Canada got very lucky with their first 2 draws, compared to team USA who already faced a respectable team and will face a Gold medal contender (and home country) team Russia for their 2nd game.

Apparently stating facts is "hating on the favorites." So so overly sensitive it's almost laughable. lol

Slovenia beat Slovakia.

It'll be interesting to see how the US fairs against an actual medal contender as well.  Seeing as they haven't played one either....lol
Also playing weaker teams off the start is not an advantage for a team like Canada.  If anything it's the opposite.  

Slovenia and Slovakia are gold medal contenders haven't you heard? Lol, Canada plays Finland Sunday, but I guess they don't count either.

Not if Weiss plays how we expected him to when we signed him.

While I agree with this, and I was a big supporter of the Weiss signing, there is a whole lot riding on him becoming who we signed him to be, but if z ends up on ltir, we can keep the kids up and roll 4 dangerous lines, with Weiss, helm, franzen Datsyuk, alfie, nyquist, tats sheahan, and jurco, we could be a force to be reckoned with, shame it has to be on z's back (no pun intended) though...

#2483784 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by Euro_Twins on 14 February 2014 - 06:59 AM

Then why are you here?  I DO care about the NHL season and the Red Wings.  I don't give a flying f*** about the Olympics.  I want the players who are being paid to play here to have their loyalties to the Red Wings.  "We" don't owe them anything. Zetterberg has the life and career he has because of the Red Wings, not because of Team Sweden.   Let's hope this puts an end to this ridiculous Olympics BS once and for all.

Right, and all three are likely missing time directly due to the Olympics.  All 3 played hurt when they shouldn't have, to try and be ready for Sochi.

I think Johan played in order to try and give z some rest, not for the Olympics

If this guy decides to play through this injury, and isn't 100% when it comes to playing for the Red Wings, we should fire him.

If we could fire someone Sammy would have been gone long ago lol

Considering Franzen's year as-a-whole, it's probably not terrible news for the team that he isn't skating.  As an individual it's awful he is still sidelined and I would never have wished it on him or anybody else.

I'm not sure what this means, but he had 23 points in 31 games so far this year, That's on pace for 61 points in a full season, and he was red hot when he was injured, so yes it is a loss.

#2483379 Wings go to Mexico

Posted by Euro_Twins on 11 February 2014 - 03:56 PM

RANDOM GUY: Damn, got not bottle opener.
MILLER: I'm pretty sure it's Miller time.
SMITH: I'm pretty sure we didn't even invite you to Mexico with us, Andrew.
MILLER: I'm pretty sure I'm our best PKer, Brandon. Plus, my adult-colored hair means you won't get carded. You being a kid and all.
ANDERSSON: YOUR SLUDGE HAMMER. Did I say it right? Sludge hammer?
RANDOM GUY, to BARTENDER: Please help me.
BARTENDER, aka Nick Lidstrom: Sorry, you're on your own from now on.
BARTENDER: I like it here in Sweden.
RANDOM GUY: This is Mexico!

This went from awesome to confusing. First of all, was nick even there? Secondly what beer were they actually drinking? Third and most importantly, where's Cleary?
