#2583051 Matthew Wuest, Capgeek founder, passes away from cancer

Posted by Jedi on 19 March 2015 - 08:21 PM

Such sad and terrible news. The world is that much darker and less informed now that he is gone.

I remember hearing more than one NHL GM advise a reporter to check CapGeek for an answer. To me, there could have been no better endorsement for his site and his work.

Rest In Peace Matthew. Thank you for all you did for hockey fans.


#2577593 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by Jedi on 02 March 2015 - 01:47 PM

I'm interested to see how Zid will fit in. I assume Marchenko goes back down now.

 

Marchenko will be sent down tomorrow regardless.  It's a paper move that allows him to play in the AHL playoffs.  Pulkkinen likely will go down like this too.

 

But yes, I can't imagine Marchenko supplanting any of the other 5 guys on the blue line.

 

5 Guys...  Man, now I want a burger...

It's worth noting that Zidlicky waived his NTC to come to Detroit.

I think Cory Cross (and the Cory Cross trade) gets a bad rap around here unfairly.

That's right. I said it, and I stand by it.

WOOLLEY BULLY!!

Must win this game. Don't care if it has no effect on the standings.

Must. Win. This. Game.

Best news I've had all day.


#2570904 Franson to Preds

Posted by Jedi on 15 February 2015 - 11:57 AM

1st round pick was too high a price, and with Toronto in our division, it would have been higher.

I don't remember who it was, but someone had some interesting speculation regarding any Toronto-to-Detroit trade. They said that above and beyond the traditional conference rival issues, there's also the whole "Mike Babcock to Toronto" issue as well. If Toronto wants any shot at landing Babs, they have to hope Detroit loses out early in the playoffs. As such, they won't be interested in sending Detroit any player that might help them make a deeper run, since that would significantly lessen the chances that Babcock leaves.


#2569869 So, Evander Kane...

Good move for Winnipeg.  Remains to be seen for Buffalo. 

 

IMO, this will make the Sabres a worse team this year than before the trade...

 

...which is exactly what they want.  They want to win the race to the bottom to better their chances at McDavid.

Accepted an invitation to play the Vault of Glass raid in Destiny for the first time today. Joined the group, only to find out that they're already on the final boss of the raid.

So, I pretty much just Jiri Slegr'd the Vault today...


#2568606 Diving Fines

Posted by Jedi on 05 February 2015 - 06:56 PM

If you ask me, the better solution than a paltry fine is to change the way the penalty is called.

Player A hooks Player B. Player B embellishes. As it stands now, both player A and Player B receive penalties, for hooking and embellishment respectively.

I say it should be changed to where the embellishment negates Player A's penalty, and the embellishing player's team now goes on the PK.

Then again, SJ would spend the entire 60 minute game shorthanded, so that idea probably wouldn't work...

It's a game, and a manly one at that.  It's taken some time, but the news stories are finally back to men arguing over who has the bigger balls.


Or softer ones, if you're Tom Brady...

Which brings me to my unpopular opinion. I can't stand the New England Patriots.

Sex Pistols
 
Lighter shade of wings jersey plus the name of the Electric Mayhem's bass player.


I swear, I'm such a nerd. You said lighter shade, and this is the first thing that popped in my mind...

If there are any higher level Destiny players still playing, Xur is selling the Ice Breaker exotic sniper rifle today and tomorrow only.  Quite possibly the single best PvE weapon in the game, if you have the 17 Strange Coins needed to buy it.

I just so happen to have 18 Strange Coins, so uh yeah, I'm buying it tonight, no doubt.
