#2650539 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

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

This whole saga has made me respect John scott a lot more than I had previously...

#2650537 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 30 January 2016 - 02:19 AM

Like I said in the around the league thread, if he was dazed and did it unknowingly then him staying in the game and not going through the concussion protocol is a problem. Maybe it was a mix of him not getting a call for what he thought was a bad hit+him being loopy from said hit and he made a bad decision, but I would be more inclined to believe it was accidental had he not stayed in the game.
I don't buy that he looked up at the last second and threw his hands up to protect himself because you can see his head up way before he threw his hands up. I doubt it was intentional, but it was more avoidable then he's playing it out to be.

So count me in the "lynch mob" who thinks he should be suspended, whether or not he meant to do it.

If he was out of it, he shouldve went through the concussion protocol, if he wasn't he could have put his arms around the ref instead of winding up to crosscheck him.

#2650536 Amusing stories you have heard or lived.

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 30 January 2016 - 01:59 AM

So my aunt always sends my sister bags of my little cousins old clothes to go through for my nieces, they buy really expensive stuff and barely wear it, so they hand it down so my sister doesn't have to spend as much money on clothes for two rapidly growing girls.

A while back my sister was going through the bag, and she found what she (for some dumb reason) thought was anot oddly shaped bottle of perfume, and instead of reading what the bottle/canister said she sprayed it in the air in front of her.
She was sitting on the ground so when she sprayed it the mist was right around the height that her 3yrold daughters face is at. And as soon as I realized what she had just sprayed my niece started to walk over to where she sprayed it so I jumped up and bent over to grab my niece up and I essentially head butted the plume of mace thst was lingering in the air.
Immediately my eyes start burning, I can't breathe and my niece starts crying bc all of the commotion, (me yelling, "Why the eff would you spray that." So I assumed she was feeling it, I ran her into the kitchen, put her down and gave her milk and asked her if she was hurting, etc. I washed my hands, made sure she was okay and then had to keep her and my other niece out of the living room while airing it out.

Only funny bc I was the only one in pain over it, but damn can my sister be dumb sometimes.

#2650533 In which we SPOOK OURSELVES

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 30 January 2016 - 01:20 AM

And for those of you who like to read spooky stories, I love killing time on reddit/nosleep.

I HATE no sleep.
If they were to classify them in their own fiction/non-fiction sub reddits, I would like it. I enjoy reading scary spooky stuff, but I don't like investing my time in made up ghost stories. And they all drag on so damn long, starting off intriguing (as long as you suspend disbelief) only to turn into the most unbelievable, clichéd horror movie fall backs that they possibly could.
I like hearing things people have actually experienced, not reworkings of horror stories that have been written/filmed thousands of times. Ha. That sub reddit severely pisses me off.

I'm also interested in cryptids, or creepy creatures, like ghosts, skin walkers, chimeras, chupacabras and all that. But mixing them like you've actually had encounters with them into fictionalized stories annoys me when I go into it thinking it actually happened.

I don't get scared by made up stories, what gives me the creeps is the stuff that could be true, or leads credence to something truly unknown.
Creepy pasta is fun when I want to read a scary story, but that's not scary, they're cool. And that's what makes me so mad about nosleep, like I don't want to read half a book about something I'm interested in hearing real stories about that's Competely made up. its like reading fan fiction, sometimes I want to appreciate the story telling of an unknown author, but if I'm looking to actually be creeped out, I want actual experiences.

Ya know what Im saying?

James freakin' Neal is in the all star game now?

The perfect opponent for John scott.

Suspended indefinitely pending a hearing after the all star game.

I bet if he would have sat out the rest of last night's game, he could've claimed he was concussed and didn't know what he was doing.
And he wouldn't have missed a single game, he could have been cleared before play resumes. Instead he didn't miss a shift.

I'm fine with the dollars, less fine with the term, even less so with the ntc/nmcs.
Ericsson is a second pair shutdown d, he makes mistakes, but every d man does. And I think if he was put out there, teams would definitely be interested. The only problem I see is with him waiving his ntc, which I don't know the specifics of.

John Scott's looking for someone to throw down during the all star game.

#2649867 Joakim Andesson on Waivers

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 24 January 2016 - 12:45 AM

Ferraro has 7 points in 37 games with Boston. HUGE mistake giving him to boot!!!

Hey bro.
He had something like 5 points 4 games when we first waived him.

Do you remember when people started including Janmark in their Calder votes like 5 games into the season, "Holland is so bad, blahblahblah, derpppderppp all star, rabble rabble calder"

#2649746 CSKA 1988-89

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 23 January 2016 - 08:34 PM

I was going to say something to the effect of, "if I could go back in time and watch this team," but if I went back to this time, I wouldn't have been born yet or would have just popped out.
So I wouldn't understand what I was watching.

#2649725 1/23 GDT : Anaheim Ducks at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 23 January 2016 - 08:20 PM

There's Jurcos goal!
Good prediction PVD.

My prediction is Beef Jurco with a goal.
My other prediction is that Perry will do something douchy.

You called it pvd

I'd be fine with trading pulks, but like I said before, I think he'll be a good 3rd line/pp specialist who can chip in 15+ goals. Definitely replaceable though, especially with frk seeming to start playing well.

#2649657 Joakim Andesson on Waivers

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 23 January 2016 - 03:17 PM

I don't see how another team not wanting to claim some of our players means that we're hindering our younger players. 
I'm unsure I see the correlation.

Dude, why would you want your prospects ready to contribute at the NHL level when they get called up?

#2649656 Forward Line Combos/Discussion

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 23 January 2016 - 03:16 PM

Putting someone with speed next to Pavel seems to help him though, he doesn't have to chase down pucks constantly, but I don't love the idea of having helm in the top6.

Also, Jurco has been playing pretty well lately, it seems like he's getting confident carrying the puck which is good.
