Yeah, I don't know what it is about the knee slide. I really don't. And it's not even like I have a problem with cellys either. I love how pumped Tatar gets. And if I think about it rationally, I lighten up about the knee slide after a minute too. But when I see it happen in real time, my gut reaction is always a combination of irritation and loathing.
I don't like it either.
But I lived the cheli celly in the alumni game, if it was done in the NHL, it would be that much better.
I agree there have been cases of career ending head injuries and concussion related symptoms, not arguing that at all but why has it taken so long for the NHL to "tone it down" when it wasn't until 1979-1980 that players were actually required to wear a helmet?
Enforcers that have passed on didn't do so primarily because of head injuries, the media likes to place blame on that factor. The biggest majority battled drug and alcohol addiction most likely brought on by opiates and/or suicide.
Repeated blows to the head can cause addiction problems, and depression...
So your biggest factor is caused by blows to the head, which does need to be studied more, but they're finding out a lot quicker than they expected, especially with all the brains they're being donated that have cte.
I bet she smokes cloves and listens to nothing but obscure 80s hair metal bands...
*looks at thread title*
Then we might fall in love, because as I like none of those things, except for Sweden, I appreciate her obscurity... but that's a conversation her and I will have in private, while indulging onthe delicious nectar that has candy seeds of plenty.
I would, like her alot more, if she showed up to random hockey games dressed as a ref on the off chance they needed her.
Speaking of big guys who are totally awesome, and could help the Wings; have you heard of this guy Brian McGratton? He's an AHLer in Calgary's organization and is just the kind of power forward that Detroit needs to A) keep the rats at bay, B) deter cheap shots against our stars, and C) create space for Dats and Zetterberg.
Just a thought. Ya know, because he's the biggest Laffy Taffy of them all.
I heard he invented sliced bread.
What if he secretly likes 'Golden Girls', and has every season on VHS?
