#2570234 Sabres and Stars swap goalies: Enroth for Lindback

Posted by P. Marlowe on 12 February 2015 - 02:49 AM

Lindback once was to be Tampa's number one goalie and Yzerman paid a lot to get him from Nashville. Not all he does is genius.

Most of the comments here are embarassing. I wish a lot of people would either play hockey at a somewhat high/competitive level, or shut up a bit.

What has everyone here been crying for forever?
"Let the kids play"
"Get rid of Franzen"
"Bench Cleary"
Etc, etc.

Guess what? All of those are happening and still no one is happy. Hockey has ups and downs, you are not going to win every game and sometimes you're going to get smoked. It's a curve, especially with teams like Detroit who have players who are still learning what it takes. You don't figure out the NHL in a couple games, in a stretch of games or sometimes even in a season. It takes time. They're learning.

You think Pittsburgh is in a different class than Detroit(someone said this)? They have more talent, arguably, but they don't have leadership, heart, compete level and usually no work ethic. Have you watched all the games PIT has collapsed in? Have you taken a look at their record against their division?

I get that this is an internet forum and the point is to discuss hockey and the game at hand, but it doesn't HAVE to be a hyperbole tabloid styled bitchfest. It could be real discussion with thought, not ripping your favorite team to shreds because they didn't "punch Cindy in the face!"

I've never seen you around here, but you're alright.

Bad feeling about this one. I think basically just because it's on NBC. :lol:

 

I think I'd rather gnaw off my own pubes than listen to EdZo tonight. But alas.

I must admit.....I snorted out some of my latte when reading this.

 

EDIT - Not sure if he'll get the chance, but I'd love to see Glendening have an opportunity to get under the skin of Crosby/Malkin.

Chris Chelios was notorious for hitting people in the face with his stick.  Come off it everybody.  You want to talk about "old time hockey"?  Here you go.  Stick work.  As old timey as it gets.

Ya know what... Protect yourself first. Big gorrilla coming at you like that. I thought Mcquaid might have been near his head a bit. Gotta get your stick up. Not condoning the cross check to the throat but you have to protect yourself

#2569566 What should we do with the Monster?

Well, it's been about 5 or 6 years since we've had a real honest-to-gosh goalie flame-war here on LGWs.

 

BRING IT ON!!!!!! :evil: :lol:

 

The good old days of Hasek and Osgood, those were some fun threads to read through. I'm sure Mrazek/Howard won't head in that direction though, we're all older and more mature :ninja:

All of a sudden, 1st in the East. You gotta love the prowess of this squad and the consistent winning, it's a heck of a lot less stressful than the injury plagued previous season that seemed to diminish the spirit of a lot of the fans. 

 

Let's continue the winning ways, the butt pats, and the dignified victories. It's a lot more fun all around when things are rolling this smooth.

Hey everyone, look who I found outside, it's Mr. Standings!

 

I invited him in to hang out for a while.

Just got in from helping the parents move. I saw the TinkyWinky one-timer on NHL network when I turned the TV on. What's the quick recap? (Too funny they were playing the light a mup song in the arena when i turned the game on (unfortunately I'm stuck with the Coyotes feed).

Throw in a seventh rounder and get OEL too, LOL.

 

More brilliance from the stripes.

52 Jonathan Ericsson would fix much of what's wrong with our defense. We need to draft someone like that in the 7th round.

Ericsson for yandle straight up
