#2480631 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by BadgerBob on 03 February 2014 - 03:51 PM

Kovalchuk retired from the Devils and left the money behind and in the process gave the Devils a big break financially. He didn't say he was too hurt to play for the Devils.

 

Kovalchuk definitely didn't leave any money behind. He's making more per season over there than he would over here without a doubt.

#2459557 Shea Weber leaves game with Injury

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 December 2013 - 11:30 AM

Can't believe some of you are still butt hurt over what Weber did to Z. I'd take Weber on the Wings in a heart beat. It wasn't that big of deal. Sure I was upset that night but let it go

 

 

I will never let it go. Just as I will never forgive coward Cowen

#2449273 Varlamov Arrested

Posted by sleepwalker on 31 October 2013 - 11:48 AM

I don't think anyone should pass any judgement whatsoever, until we know exactly what happened.  (which we likely never will)  Especially since the laws in this country are so convoluted and f***ed up, and they'll lock you up and hit you with a half dozen charges just for blinking wrong.  (hence the highest prison population on the planet)

 

You know when you were a kid and your mother said "com here young man/lady" and grabbed your arm?  Well, technically, since she touched your arm, that's felony assault and since she moved you from your previous position, that is kidnapping.

 

As an adult example, a few years ago a friend of mine had these exact same two charges filed against him.  What happened was his girlfriend at the time came home all f***ed up on some sort of hard drugs and started going literally crazy and screaming and tearing his place up.  He finally got her to calm down and told her she had to leave.  He opened the door and said come back when you are sober and calm down and lightly put his hand on her shoulder and escorted her the two feet out the door.  I was actually there when this happened with my girlfriend at the time, so I saw exactly what happened.

 

Anyway, we leave and the next day, we come to find out that HE was charged with kidnapping and assault because several hours later the girl decided to call the cops for whatever reason.  According to the cops, making her leave HIS house was considered kidnapping, and since he lightly put his hand on her shoulder, they decided to charge him with assault too.  Oh, and they flat out refused to charge her with anything despite the fact that she tore his house up and scratched his arms up while in a drug fit, while he did absolutely nothing to defend himself.

 

This...unfortunately, is the system we live in here...

 

*sigh*

 

 

I am definitely NOT excusing Varlamov if he actually did beat and kidnap his girl, but from the one story I have encountered first hand and others I have heard about over the years, most of these "kidnapping and assault" charges the cops conjure up are BS and not at all what the name of the charges would have you think.

Repeat offender? Because he's not afraid to let the opposing team know he's on the ice?

It was a joke.

#2419283 CHL moving to ban European goalies

Posted by esteef on 11 June 2013 - 05:58 PM

So because European tenders are selected instead of Canadian ones they are making a rule basically forcing teams to pick Canadian ones even though they might not be as good or as qualified as the European tenders?  Smells like Affirmative Action and Diversity laws here in the states.  Two thumbs down CHL.

#2418051 Griffins GM 7 - tonight

Posted by Travis on 05 June 2013 - 10:41 PM

When I first saw it I thought it went five hole. How does the Barons goalie let that in short side? Jurco's speed must have made it hard for him to stay on his angle


The video doesn't do it much justice, he was absolutely flying.

#2414215 Interesting stat

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 29 May 2013 - 03:57 AM



 

I think we're seeing a new kind of dynamic developing.  Top teams have their "core" players Pav/Dats, Kane/Toews, Crosby/Malkin etc, the key is the supporting cast around them.  You get a good supporting cast of cheap young players and cheap role players, but then those cheap players leave for for more money and you lose all your depth, so you have to start building your depth again.

 

I think success is going to go in cycles for the top teams for the forseeable future.

 

I agree with this, Pavel Datsyuk is equal to two of their best players  :lol:
