#2563166 TB's Paquette learns the hard way, don't start **** w Chara

Posted by rick zombo on 14 January 2015 - 01:23 PM


In short, if you like Jack Edward's act, or agree with the things he says, you're stupid.  And it's because you're stupid that he's saying those things. 

 

So, basically, there are a few regular posters here on LGWs that have helped make Jack Edward happen. :lol:

Dude what are you talking about?  Boarding and gloved punches to little guys' faces are part of the game.  Always have been, always will be.  If you weren't on the soft, euro, pussified, nancy boy, bandwagon you'd realize Chara is just bringin' old time hockey back to the masses. 

 

And it's about friggin time.

I don't know, didn't he insist he get a photograph with all his former assistants that are now head coaches at the draft this year? I think he's more sentimental then his stern demeanor portrays. Plus I think I heard him say Glendening was like the son he never had.

 

:lol:

I wish I was born a genetic mutant.

 

I would get all the women and I would dominate at the food trough.

 

I would also take liberties with other people in my profession, and have my team's jersey worn by frankgrimes while he pretends to watch Red Wings games. :glare:

#2562838 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by rick zombo on 13 January 2015 - 11:52 AM

All I know is that Petr and Howard both get caught out of their net

 

Because of that one time Mrazek got burned in Calgary. We all know that on LGWs, one time = labeled for all eternity.

 

Mrazek is actually two zillion times better at playing the puck (including NOT getting caught) than Howard is. Am I exagerting? Perhaps. But, when in Rome................




#2562609 Petry next Oiler to be shopped - FTLOG Kenny, get it done!

Posted by rick zombo on 12 January 2015 - 10:08 AM

Petry's a legitimate top-four defenseman. If we're being honest, we have exactly one defenseman who's clearly better than Petry.

 

DeKeyser and Kronwall and Ericsson are all better than Petry.




#2562275 1/10 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Capitals 3

I'm pretty sure someone here mentioned it, but right after Weiss took that hooking penalty against Johnny Hockey, Babcock walked over to Hiller and told him something. Right then, I was like "Weiss, meet dog house... again."

Just checked, and he ended up with 10:35 TOI.

Yeah. That was me in the GDT.

I was sure Weiss would either play the rest of the game on the 4th line or not play at all. Turns out, he kept his spot in the 3rd, but barely played. I think Babcock sees the value of having him on the PP, but other than that, it's obvious that Weiss either isn't working hard enough or doing the things Babcock wants him to. Or both. Actually, they might be one and the same.

I'm OK with this. Except that it really annoys the hell out of me that guys like Weiss and Legwand get this treatment when Franzen gets a free pass each and every night.

You guys are drinking' again.


#2562061 McGratton on waivers

Sad day for hockey, this league is quickly becoming something it shouldn't be.

 

I hope he finds a place on another team, or a job in the front office somewhere. What af****** league it has a place for rats but no place for great energy players and like Burke said I'm sure all thef****** greenpeace folks are happy now. Of course the softest team - which not long ago used to have the HW champion - in the league willk pass so I'm not getting my hopes up.

 

How the hell does Burke not step in here ? He is the president and should overrule the GM in that case it's a bad day for hockey

 

Front office? Doing what? Security? :lol:




#2562053 Lines Thread

Posted by rick zombo on 09 January 2015 - 03:01 PM

 

I remember when he was a free agent and a common refrain was "I don't want Wisniewski.  He's bad in his own zone and he's asking for too much money". 

 

That was before we gave Kyle Quincey 4.8 million dollars to be a worse Brad Stuart.  And before a right shooting, powerplay quarterback, who can move the puck from the back end (e.g. James Wisniewski) became our White Whale. 

 

Oh how the times have changed. 

 

I still don't want the pointy faced little prick.

If I were Buffalo I'd claim him, and the next time I played Boston I'd finally pay Lucic back for running over Ryan Miller. 

 

Then I'd waive him again. 

 

Then Detroit could claim him, and pay Lucic back for spearing DeKeyser, then wave him.

 

Then Montreal could..............

2 years @ 1.5M?  How is that even possible

 

Dude!!!

 

We're talking about the same team that signed Engelland to 2.9M/per this summer.

 

Un frackin real.




#2561948 Osgood circa 2008 *Mod Advisory @ #18*

Posted by rick zombo on 08 January 2015 - 11:51 PM

Yet again I get to rub a thread or string of posts in Harold's face.(He once told me in a PM that Osgood never comes up on LGW until I come along).

However even though I have a long and well documented history of hating on Osgood, I can even conceed that he played out of his mind in those two playoffs. The team never had to win in spite of his blunders. He was pretty lights out. Any other year (including 1998) the team had to win in spite of him. He was rarely the best goalie on his team let alone the league on this other years. Look it up if you don't believe me.

I will leave my contribution to this thread at that.

 

It’s like I just said beetlejuice 3 times and you appeared. How do you do that?

If Zetterberg didn't have that 5-on-3 shift against the Pens, the Conn Smyth may very well have ended up in Osgood's possession.

 

If Zetterberg doesn't have that shift, the Conn Smythe may very well have ended up in a Penguin's possesion.
