#2235242 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 December 2011 - 09:24 AM

Yes let's wish that a player never plays again because the media promotes him after having one the best starts to a career in the history of the game.

Stay classy wing's fans.

This is awful news, he's such an important player for the league, it will not be the same without him. Such a shame.

Wow, over-dramatize much? The NHL has survived the retirement of Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky; what would make this worse?

Datsyuk is already the best all around player.

Crosby is the best player. Guy scores a point per game easily, even after being away from the game for a long time.

And I can't believe some fools on this board actually think this doesn't hurt the league. They televise countless Pens games and talk about Crosby all the time. Whether you like that or not, it's a fact. When he's not playing, it makes the league look worse.


To be fair, though, it is the league's own fault for putting all their eggs in one basket.

Seriously, I know he is a good player, but the efforts to make him the best and the face of the NHL has made me dislike the kid. There are other young players who work hard and are great fun to watch - we have a few - who will not get the media hype, but who are still also good for the game. Hard work and heart - to me, that's what the game is all about.

I hate for any player to go out like this, but his time might be over. Seems that he has a hard time coming back from the injury, much as he might want to.

I think we may have seen the last of him at least for the regular season.

This is bad for the NHL.

He's their best player, whether you like it or not. That wouldn't be good for any sport, especially a sport that refuses to market other stars, besides Ovechkin.

Pavel Datsyuk cannot be killed with conventional weapons.

"Iím not taking that. I donít care who it is," Howard said. "If youíre going to run me like that or try to go through me like that, youíre going to pay the price."


That's the quote I'm referring to.
He just sounds like an idiot because Perron didn't "run him".
His own guy was the cause of the issue, not Perron.

Check out a replay before you run your mouth to the press.

Horribly, horribly reffed game...again. Bad calls and bad non-calls on both teams.

Not sure how Perron got a Penalty for making contact with Howard when he was blatantly checked into him. Perron wasn't even on line to make contact until he was checked off course and into Howard...and I'm not sure why Howard got nothing for attacking Perron. That was a joke. That's kind of the talk of St. Louis sports radio and message boards right now.

Howards's comments after the game make him sound like an idiot...sorry. He needs to look at the replay. Besides, like Perron is going to "take a run" at Howard after being out over a full calendar year with a concussion? Uh, no...and then for Howard to jump on top of him and start wailing away?? Please...that's bush league.

Honestly , I've never liked Howard. Sure, part of it is because he is a Wing and the Wings are hated rivals in St. Louis...but in some of the games I've seen him play he has just come off as an ass. Just my observation...and maybe it's just the games I've seen. Of course, I'm sure I'd love that in a goalie on my own team, but when it's the opposition, it pisses me off. Just one of those things I guess.

#2231005 December 2011 Schedule Wallpaper Now Available!

Posted by Matt on 29 November 2011 - 10:39 PM

Thanks for the great feedback last month everyone! I do like the inclusion of the Grand Rapids Griffins schedule, but I'm trying to find an effective way of applying it to the current rendition without it getting too busy -- especially at smaller resolutions. Speaking of (slightly) smaller resolutions: You can now use the LGW Calendar Schedule Wallpaper on your iPhone4/S and your iPad/2! The iPhone4 version is specifically formatted for your lock screen.

I'd love your feedback on these! (Specifically the iPad version -- I don't personally own one, so I wasn't able to test the layout against any pre-existing lock screen issues like I could with the iPhone4. Also, I'm definitely open to adding versions for Android devices -- but I'd base it on the highest, most-popular screen resolution and I'd need a template guide to avoid the same on-screen o/s features.)

Enjoy!

#2230506 Bylsma Defends Crosby's Elbow on Foligno

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 27 November 2011 - 11:29 PM

His tantrum on Zetterberg's back was so much crazier because he must've hit Z's back with the crosscheck half a dozen times or more. I remember my jaw just dropped when he did that to Z... it was so juvenile.


What was so funny about it is that Hank said that he already knew who it was without even looking behind him.


#2229897 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 November 2011 - 04:33 PM

Handled?

The Datsyuk line was dominant tonight. Zetterberg had a terrible game, though.


Did you watch the game?

Our defense had trouble getting the puck out of the zone and turned the puck over constantly. We gave up around 45 shots. That's hardly winning hockey. A team as big as Boston or San Jose can do this to us at will.

Howard stood on his head. That's why we won.

I laughed at a guest because I read this. You win the awesome award.


We got so manhandled that we won. ***** ***** *****.


God, you guys are such blind homers. We won because Howard was awesome. Giving up 43 shots is not winning hockey in general.

That's why we can't beat San Jose in a playoff series. We struggle against big, forechecking teams. What is not true about that?

This board can bef****** amazing sometimes.


#2229893 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

Posted by PrairieDawg on 25 November 2011 - 04:16 PM

Great game. I don't get why people need to ***** about it. These are two extremely talented teams. Boston knows that we struggle from an aggressive forecheck and thats what created their goals. When we were able to move up the ice and keep possession we were dominating in their end. We aren't going to manhandle every team. This game kept me interested the whole time and that's why I watch hockey. :thumbup:


#2227928 Crosby coming back

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 November 2011 - 05:45 PM

He'll still win the Art Ross and Rocket Richard trophies this year.

And they're easily the favorites to win the Cup if he and Malkin are healthy.


#2227912 Crosby coming back

Posted by LeftWinger on 20 November 2011 - 04:48 PM

please excuse me while I celebrate. :puke:

I hope the next hit knocks him back out...I cannot stand the prissy bastard.
