Jesus man, the intro to this game has been going on for close to a half an hour already.
This is craziness.

Anyone think Helm could beat Larkin's new record?

I think it would be close.
Now that Larkin holds the record though, I could see them racing in practice at some point. (Hopefully they do, and hopefully they record it and put it on a new episode of wingspan, or show it during pre-game)

I can see where they're coming from about the record not being equal, but whatevs.

Maybe they were just trying to drum up more excitement about the all star game and this generation of players.
Seeing someone beat an all time record is exciting, but as long as they use they he same format/rules going forward it'll work out.

Also, I believe had he not slipped he would've beat the 12.9 that gartner put up when he got to start at the blue line to build up speed.

Good thing it's not the Phil Kessel run


That's just silly...
Phil Kessel clearly doesn't run.


The Phil Kessel run is 12 feet of cheeseburgers.

"I turned to look at him, shrugged, and peed my pants whilst looking him directly in the eyes. I owned it. I asserted my dominance like a dog marking a bush."

Bahahahaha.

You're alpha a.f. BoS.

The skills comp is always somewhat fun, I'm set up with a few beers ready for this damn thing.

I hope dylarks destroys that speed record.
Brent Burns On John Scott
"What he does is one of the hardest jobs in hockey, everyone on the bench with him gains about 30 lbs and a few inches when he's next to you, and even in the locker room he just makes you comfortable. He's a good guy and probably one of the smartest guys off ice that are here."

Pretty cool.


#2650592 Dennis Wideman Suspended Indefinitely - Pending Hearing

Hitting another player like that wouldn't have been any better.

It kind of would be though.
Refs are completely untouchable, as they should be, the standard suspension for hitting a ref is higher than hitting a player on the other team. Which is why this hit is as big of a deal as it is.
Had he hit a player like that, he may get a 2 minute penalty for cross checking, but it's not something you look at as a suspendable hit. Since it was a ref, it is something you look at, because completely intentional or not, the refs have to be protected from getting hurt.

Toronto and the wings aren't good trading partners, they're rebuilding and nothing on their team represents an upgrade over anything we already have aside from reilly, who they aren't trading.
The only way we trade with them is if they take on Howard or possibly ericsson, and even then they're not going to give up any decent picks or prospects for them.

Ericssons contract isn't even that bad, we just have way too many kids coming through who need their chance and he's the easiest guy to replace for the money he's making.


#2650545 Goalie Battle

Buffalo gave up quite a bit for lehner to be their goalie of the future, I doubt they'd want jimmy unless lehner becomes a sieve.


#2650543 Dennis Wideman Suspended Indefinitely - Pending Hearing

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 30 January 2016 - 02:52 AM

Meh.
 
Clearly (to me anyway) he was dazed and thought it was an opposing player, but that won't stop the lynch mob from demanding his head on a platter.

Yep, the lynch mob are out.


I mean, there's no way to know for sure what exactly happened or what motivated him to react the way he did, which is exactly why people are just giving their opinions on it. Suggesting you believe he should be suspended bc of this doesn't make those who think that a "lynch mob," its a matter of opinion, we're trying to make up our minds based off of the information available.

I guess I'm just confused as to what makes those thinking he should be suspended a lynch mob?
