#2536204 A Perfect fit for the Bruins...Ville Leino?

Posted by number9 on 14 September 2014 - 08:50 PM

Ovechkin is lazy, selfish and as one dimensional as they come. Mark my words the guy will be the next Kovalchuk

 

Hits like crazy. As dynamic as Crosby. Plays point on the PP.

 

I actually think he is one of the more multi-dimensional forwards in the league. He's been lazy on the back check lately, but that's really the only blemish on his record.

 

Kovalchuk was never the media and fan icon that Ovechkin is. I think Ovi stays in NA for longer than you think.




#2535094 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by yztheman on 28 August 2014 - 02:05 PM

I went to vegas about 14 years ago, remember seeing a vegas minor league jersey in a second hand shop so they have had some exposure to the game. I was in Seattle a couple of years ago, and I heard the talk about a team there back then as well. I don't mind expansion, but after the league brought and then took away 2 teams from Atlanta (closest place to where I live) I don't really care. If you aren't going to commit to their presence then don't bother is my opinion. The league is doing a horrible job on the fans, and the pay television nhl is crazy, blacking out games that are states away from me. I used to go to games and spend money but now I don't, have no reason to, the league obviously cares not that there is a couple of fans in Alabama lol.




#2535183 Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Posted by T.Low on 29 August 2014 - 02:48 PM

I know you wouldn't want this thread to be about you, but how you doing anyway man?  I know its been a while since you were diagnosed.

Wow, thanks for asking.

I'm doing great. I can still hold my kids, play with them in the pool, and zipline with them at Whistler.

My parents and my brothers family joined us for a week in San Diego, then all flew to our home in Washington. We just took them to Whistler where we all, including my 75 yr old mumsy, did the longest tallest zip line in North America . (The kids did the bobsled run too, along with my wife)

My 13 yr old niece is putting together a little vacation vid, check it out (the older kids are my nephew and nieces, young one is Olivia , Lilja seemed to be sleeping a lot)





AND my life long friend from growing up in Michigan did an awesome Ice Bucket Challenge vid (he's Air Force) :

where is Ferraro and Callahan at ? Oh ya, gone to GR, or worse, waivers. Both deserve a spot over Cleary. I really hope they clear waivers. I know they only played a couple games, but would hate to lose them for zero.

Under no circumstances should Abby be in the top 6. He has proven he isn't capable of playing that role and has what, 40 points in the last 120 games while playing with two of the best players in the league. I can't even count how many breakaways or open nets he misses, and gets goals because the puck bounces off him. Jurco should be in that role over Abby, has way more skill and plays bigger then Abby most of the time.

The LGW'ers need to get on board in honor of our buddy, T. Low



This is such a surreal position to be in. Thanks PlayMaker and everyone.

Thanks to you, T.  Your attitude is amazing.  I got involved with ALS charities two years ago after a close friend was diagnosed.  If you have a favorite charity near your home, by all means, don't be shy.  Let us know.  I'm in Michigan and do the ALS walks here.  But if there's a local chapter or a specific charity that you'd prefer, post the info on it.

 

Think of all the money that'd be raised if the posters here had to donate a dollar for every time they bashed Cleary, criticized Holland, complained about Franzen, etc  :)

Well we have Bertuzzi, Callahan, and McKee on the way. Though I wouldn't a few more grinders than just just those 3.


Why does it seem like everyone here thinks McKee is going to make it? Have any of you watched him play? He's brutally bad right now.

Are we physical?  I don't think so.  Do we play with an edge?  Not really.  

 

We need some guys that are tough and unpleasant to play against in a 7 game series.  Yeah, it's nice to have fast Euros who have nice hands, but you need something else as well for balance.    

 

If someone thinks Sheahan, Tatar and Abby can provide all the grit and unpleasantness that we need in a 7 game series, then I guess their opinion differs from mine.  

 

I completely agree but we need those guys in the top 6/9 not the on 4th line playing 6min a night.

Checking is something a player need to learn too and especially the Wings could use a forward with some grit. Mantha got the tools so yeah if he doesn't make the top 6, let him try a bottom 6 role and then send him down after 9 games.there is really no harm in that.

 

I cringe at every lineup you guys are posting, because of how obviously soft this team looks on paper.  Other than Sheahan or Abby, this team has very little grit at forward.  Glenfiddich is gritty, but not sure how much he'll play this season.  

 

I understand that we're not the 1987 Flyers, but we need to be a little tougher to play against physically.  That whole "team speed" garbage didn't help us against Boston last year.  And yeah, Boston is bigger than we could ever be, but that didn't help them against Montreal much.

I think Z-D-Alfie could be huge if they're healthy.

The two kids and a mule line idea intrigues me, and it could actually spark Franzen.

Kr, I get your point about pairing Ericsson with Kronwall and Smith with DeKeyser makes sense, and eventually I'd go that way as well, but I really liked the chemistry Smith was showing with Kronwall towards the end of last season, and having a vet with DeKeyser in case of a sophomore slump makes sense to me to at least start the season. On the plus side, I think the top four of Kronwall, Ericsson, Smith, and DeKeyser would work well in any combo, and we may see that on the PP.
