#2214303 Roenick's Rant

Posted by InKennyWeTrust on 12 October 2011 - 10:14 AM

Quite possibly the first time I've ever agreed with Jeremy Roenick. I saw on ESPN's bottom line yesterday on the NHL's "Crosby" section that there was nothing new to report. The hell is it even there for, then?


#2213823 How long before headshots are embellished by garbage players?

Posted by Guest on 09 October 2011 - 07:23 PM

So Abdelkader makes an ass out of himself by embellishing a hit once, and he's just as big of a piece of s*** as Cooke?

where did i say that?

everyone already knows that cooke is human garbage. that's nothing new.

a discussion about the potential that players may intentionally embellish any hit near the head due to the new rules might actually result in some conversation. it just so happens that the most blatant example of that so far was abdelkader. hopefully it was a one-time thing.

i think it was 100% on-topic. are we concerned about players embellishing head shots due to the new stricter rules, or not?

it's not like matt cooke will be the only guy doing it...and that play was nowhere near as bad of an embellishment as abdelkader's. that's incredibly emabarrassing for the wings.

I'm changing it up a bit this season and NOT going with a monthly "featured" player (at least for this month, depending on feedback). Oftentimes the addition of a player messes with the layout when adjusting for other aspect ratios, or I have a rough time finding a nice, high-resolution picture to use. I hope you like this year's edition!

#2201587 Dry Island: The Flyers of Phildelphia.

Posted by 13dangledangle on 29 July 2011 - 10:49 AM

I doubt that Laviolette would have gone for this "dry island" idea if he hadn't tried to talk to Richards and Carter first. I'll bet he tried, and didn't get through, and then tried to send a message - only for Carter and Richards to ignore the entire idea. Sounds like good reason to ship them out of town to me.




That's what I was thinking. I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure there was (minor) talks with a couple of our guys in recent years (abby, smith) about the way Red Wing's handle themselves off the Ice was there not? Even so I just can't help but think if Bab's went to Lids and Zetterberg with the same idea you wouldn't even hear about it, they would do it for a month as a team and move on. I've been a part of "experiments" like this for hockey as well as in a work setting too. As soon as a couple people dont participate it gives the whole thing kind of a meek out look and works in the opposite way.

Perhaps when Laviolette saw it going this way he should have pulled the plug on the experiment and tried something else? Or maybe I'm looking way to much into something that was never even a problem? Weird scenario to me but alas it doesnt really matter now and I wish Carter and Richards the best of luck on there new teams. Unfortunately we will see them up close a lot more this year!

I am surprised at almost everyone thinking it's not a big deal they didn't take part. Obviously people will get wind of a story and it will become a small game of broken telephone, but don't fool yourself there was indeed a story for the wind to blow. When the your new head coach (Laviolette) ask's "team" to take part in a "dry island" experiment there are 2 important things to consider...

... 1- The coach see's an issue (which could be a number of things in this scenerio) and thinks he has a solution through a team building exercise.
2- The Captain and Assistant Captian choose not to take part in the exercise displaying, imo, very juvenile and self righteous attitudes.

If I was Peter Laviolette new to a dressing room and my two top players, not to mention "leaders" choose not to participate, I would have cursed those two f***ers under my breath for sure.

Whatever. Whether they liked to drink or not, they were still the best players on the team. I wouldn't want a coach telling me how to live my life either. I bet in time they willl be glad they got traded away. LA will be better than philly next year anyway.

It will be hung from the rafters with a bungy cord.

Just think... if he hadn't given Igor that extra shove, and if Igor had not objected...

I might consider it.

Really, though, Lidstrom is the only player whom I never criticize. I always assume that he knows what he's doing and that if I disagree, then I'm just wrong.


What the f*** is wrong with you people?


#2187647 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by darkmanx on 21 June 2011 - 05:40 PM

Why does Kenny Holland keep signing over-the-hill geezers. We are becoming a nursing home rather than a hockey team. Say NO to Jagr and NO to any players over 35 (unless they are named Selanne or Lidstrom.


Why take Selanne but not Jagr ? If Selanne could put up over 80 points, im pretty sure Jagr could do close to the same with Pavs feeding him. No one knows what hes capable of doing, but there is no reason to doubt he can still play the game.

Radulov, 80 pts = 20+60, runner up has 66 points, Jags is on 10 place with 53 points.
http://www.khl.ru/st...eaders/185/pts/

Jagr's stat for the last 3 years in khl is right here: http://www.khl.ru/players/13851/
2008-09: 53 pts
2009-10: 42 pts
2010-11: 50 pts

Sure, it is not exactly bad. But this is KHL. As far as I remember Radulov was nowhere near the top scoring title in the NHL. His best was somewhat around 50 points.

If, god forbid, Jagr is signed, do not expect more that 20 points out of him. If he plays with Dats or Zeta, he's going to wear them up and expect their production to go down a little.


last time I checked Hudler was still in a roster. Am I missing something here? who said he's gone once Jagr's signed?

I quit smoking 7 year ago. But there is a danger for me to start drinking heavily if Jarg signs with Red Wings :)


Clearly your smoking has long term effects on your brain. You sound like your going to slit your wrists with every post about Jagr.
