#2073810 Kane likely out for weeks

Posted by ami on 07 December 2010 - 02:53 PM

the only reason for not disclosing injury is to keep taxi drivers in Chicago from panicking. If I were a taxi driver and Kane isn't able to drive, I'll take a vacation.


#2012790 Nabokov leaves the NHL, signs with KHL

Does anyone else see the irony of the N. American hockey league using a centrally planned system (salary cap) and the Russian using more of a free market system for a team's roster based on supply and demand and simple cost/benefit projections?.

Sheesh. What's this country coming to?

Although, N.American hockey system is obviously moving out of free market system, it is a big fallacy to think of Russian system as a free market. Russia's 'demand' on free agents is fueled with money that earned somewhere else not in hockey (oil, local and federal budgeting, laundering, etc.). Same as US economy was fueled and overflowed with cheap money as Greenspan lowered interest rate in early 2000's. What that system eventually has produced? Bubbles and than ... bursts, collapses!

As to the question where this country is coming to? Pretty clear. Socialism. Meaning: wherever Russia and/or Germany were in 1930's. And the West is moving toward these targets since 1930's too (thanks to FDR and Hoover), with short stop in late 1970s/early 1980's with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.

/back to hockey
let them (hockey players whatever their nationality is) go wherever they want to play, win or earn money. The less imposed restrictions or regulations, the better hockey we're going to witness.

do wings need another primadonna entering her climax for that price tag ? I'd say Wings are better off without him. Even more, I'd say NHL is better off with out him too. Let him join Lesha Yashin - they've got a lot in common.

what do you want to hear from a lawyer, straight answer? wishful thinking. usually one needs another lawyer to decipher lawyer's answer, a so forth.

and, i bet, you haven't listen his show up to the very end where fine printing came out of his mouth.


#1988767 Datsyuk Named Top Forward of World Championships

Posted by ami on 24 May 2010 - 12:36 AM

Datsyuk is the most complete, but Ovechkin is a scoring machine and is one of the 2 best players in hockey. Kind of hard to say that he's not the best Russian player in the league.

This frigging 'scoring machine' starts to piss off everybody but Caps fans... 99% of time he acts like a stapler and as predictable as a stapler: wait for a pass and shoot, wait for a pass and shoot, wait for pass and shoot. Machine he is. Oh yeah, sometime stapler can be used for something else, and then he (a scoring machine) can make some moves and even passes. Very rarely though.

Поздравляю, Павел!

That's supposed to say, "Congratulations, Pavel!" but I suck at Russian.

You said (and spelled) it perfectly. :)


#1986522 Luxury Tax System

Posted by ami on 17 May 2010 - 07:07 PM

The luxury tax is more capitalistic than the system they have now.

less poops in jam doesn't make it more eatable...


#1986460 Luxury Tax System

Posted by ami on 17 May 2010 - 03:04 PM

learn capitalism: tax can not improve anything.

luxury tax promotes socialism, taxes take money from the ones who earned them and give them to the ones who didn't.


#1976115 There are 7 games in a series

Posted by ami on 05 May 2010 - 12:02 AM

it is over. take it. you can't win it all.
it has been a rough season, but i enjoyed every moment of it.
now, it is time to retool and bring it home next year!

(hopefully, canucks beat s*** out of guppies-on-steroids in WCF and then win whoever gets there in SCF)

Carman, can you distinguish your left nut from you right one?
