#2059630 Why is St. Louis doing so good?

The reality of the present is that your team won't be relevant until they do something after April 9.

Not relevant until we win something. Got it.

But I hate to break it to you, but I wasn't saying anything other than I was excited about the Blues hot start and I am looking forward to how they play the rest of the season.

I haven't claimed the Blues are going to win anything...yet.

itīs early november! Letīs see where they are in april. I would like to see them play the wings in the playoffs.

Nothing would make me happier.

Whatever happened to Paul Kariya?

He's sitting out this season due to post-concussion syndrome.

He should probably just retire.

He came in here and gave his tams props and said what his team needed to work on and then all the shots at the Blues came after Shore opened the flood gates. He wasn't combative or hostile or anything until he was provoked. Obviously the Wings are on another, but why the petty pop shots? if you're insecure or threatened by the Blues, why show it?

I'm aware, but still, pretty silly considering you are basing your joke off of around 10 games.

Well, just let me know how many games the Blues need to play before jokes are acceptable to you.

Didn't know 2008 was history,

You didn't? It was three cup finals ago...I'd say that's history. Do you want me to congratulate the Wings for their 2008 cup?



and that the 20 years of success the Wings have had is snuffed out by a hot start.

Thanks for letting me know.

When did I snuff out the Wings 20 year history? I'm just don't care.
I'm kinda happy about the Blues nice start THIS SEASON...not sure why I would care about something the Wings did 20 years ago in a thread started by a Wings fan that is about the Blues hot start THIS SEASON.

Dude...don't make too much out of a joke.
It's funny because the Wings have been successful...take it as a compliment and move on. I have to explain this??

Oooh and you gave up the mighty lars eller and a pick, was that it? i could give up a good prospect from the wings too if we would have gotten halak

And I'd have won the lottery if I had picked the right numbers.

What's your point?

If you wish to enjoy your stay here I would stick with the former part of your post rather than the latter.

If I wish to enjoy my stay? I've been a member here A LOT longer than you have.
And the latter part of my earlier post was a joke.

Trying to dog a franchise that has won more cups in the past 10 years than yours has in its entire history is silly.

I try not to live in the past. I'm kinda focussed on the present right now. But thanks for the history lesson.

Those paying attention to the Blues could see this coming over the past couple seasons...and then they added Halak without losing anyone from their NHL roster, which instantly made them significantly better.

Great goaltending...solid system on defense...great transition game.

And they just won in Boston and beat the Rangers in NY in back to back nights without their best offensive threat (Perron) and half of their defensive corps (Polak, Carlo, Jackman)...all our out with injuries.

Really, the only thing they need to work on is the power play, which has been pretty bad. If they could get that on track a bit, they'd be dominant.

Davis Payne has done a great job since taking over last year. They've won 12 games in a row at home dating back to last season and of course are 9-1-2 so far this year, and currently #1 overall in the NHL.

Blues teams have always been known for working their asses off...and this team is no different. They work hard, and it is paying off. Hard work doesn't go into a slump.

But I can't see them keeping up this pace without either the power play improving, or them scoring more 5 on 5 goals. They can't keep winning games 1-0 and 2-1...or at least I don't think they can.

They haven't played the wings yet.


#1914554 Kicking to score a goal

Posted by cprice12 on 12 March 2010 - 01:09 AM

ok I don't think that I'm going to get anywhere with this.

Probably because you aren't willing to listen to reason/logic?

I admit that the safety of the goalie is a concern but I don't see how some small rule could be placed to protect him, such as no kicking within the crease or something. I just get pissed off when a goal is waived off because it was kicked in.

Why do you say that you understand the safety concerns, but then you come back and say that you don't understand why a kicked in goal doesn't count?
I don't think you understand it at all.

You can't allow guys to be kicking away at loose pucks with razor sharp blades when a goalie is down on the ice trying to cover the puck. The only thing you are doing is increasing the chances of another Malarchuk incident if you allow kicked in goals. More guys would be kicked & stepped on with those sharp skates.

It's common sense and quite easy to understand.
