#2617291 Datsyuk Has Ankle Surgery

Posted by kickazz on Yesterday, 02:47 PM

He's 13 pounds less than Tatar and 3 inches taller. Not sure if he's spending the summer bulking up a bit but it would probably help. If he can gain at least 10-15 pounds (muscle + carb/water + fat combined) I don't see much issue.

Why?  They actually enjoy life.


My point was, they wouldn't tear down a Yankee Stadium or a Montreal Forum or a Boston Garden.  There's history in those buildings and players and fans felt something special when they went to a game.  Now you have these big corporate named arenas with more seats and more comfort, but less atmosphere.  It's not as memorable and not as great an experience.  Every time I meet someone who went to a sporting event at the Boston Garden or at the Chicago Stadium, I ask them about it.  Don't really care about the TD Garden or the Air Canada Center, and nobody will care in 30 years about them, because they will probably be demolished by then.  Not much time to make history there.  As a fan, I want to attend a stadium where legends played.  You can do that in Europe, but not here.  Unless you go to Lambeau Field, Wrigley Field or Fenway Park.  We'll see how long those last.  


Maybe it's a cultural mentality.  In Europe, they have famous soccer stadiums that have been around, in some cases, over 100 years.  They'd never think of demolishing those.  Maybe it's because Europe has more history than North America and has been around much longer.  We haven't been around long and want to make our stadiums look brand new every 20 years.  


So yeah, I'm sad they're demolishing the JLA arena.  It's where Yzerman, Lidstrom and so many other greats played.  


Couldn't they hold other events there?  Concerts and such.  


You're a European-American aren't you?  Or are you Native American?  


I'm black.

P.a. parenteau and mike Richards are on waivers today, when they go unclaimed, both will reportedly be bought out.

He's rh. Could be a good reclamation project. Like Cleary

#2617112 2015 Draft

Posted by darkmanx on 28 June 2015 - 12:09 PM

So no one else wants to call him Patrick star with me, fine!
He wasn't the only awkward interview, he was just the one I felt bad for most.
I know he's just a kid talking to the media, and he was probably just a bit freaked out but I thought it was funny.
Very cringeworthy.


I think Kessels was worse.



#2617108 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by wings87 on 28 June 2015 - 12:05 PM

Ha. I thought that movie was cabbage, it made me laugh.
But it sounds like you're describing the 19 saw movies, or the 15 takens.

Eh, take your pick they're all pretty bad.

#2617095 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by wings87 on 28 June 2015 - 11:08 AM

So Pronger is an employee of the NHL front office while also being an NHL player under contract who just got traded while also becoming eligible for the HHOF because of the new bylaws.  That's some impressive Pronger physics. 
I wonder if the Coyotes will retire his jersey?  He's the best d-man they've ever had. 

A very shrewd trade.

I wonder if the NHL can get away with trading the Coyotes to Sweden.

Horrible for entertainment purposes?

More like. Sad and profitable with plenty of sequels.

This whole posting tweets thing annoys me.


#2617054 Free agents this off season

Posted by GoWings1905 on 27 June 2015 - 06:27 PM

The Wings will pursue Green hard, get outbid again by someone else in free agency (which is fine in this case) and then just continue to fill the roster internally. 


I really don't expect much of anything come July 1st. With Blashill and the wave of prospects coming, I'm OK with that.

Posted by rick zombo on 27 June 2015 - 01:35 PM

well, this off season has started off like s***.


Why? Because Holland didn't trade for Hamilton, draft McDavid, and trade Howard, Helm, and Franzen for Malkin?
