#2664054 HNIC Rumor: Datsyuk to return to Russia

Posted by marcaractac on 02 April 2016 - 07:58 PM

If Datsyuk leaves after this season his cap hit still counts next season cause he signed after age 35? What a stupid rule. 


If he wants to go to Russia, trade him to a small market team first, then let him retire from nhl hockey. That way his contract helps a small market team get over the cap floor. Also frees up cap space to go all in on stamkos

Mick and Kenny made a good point, if there's no penalty call on the play, don't fight. We needed the win, I think it was a great decision by Abby.


No need to answer the bell. It's a 3-2 game on a clean hit.

#2656132 2/26 GDT : Red Wings at Avalanche Alumni Game, 7:00 EST

I totally forgot about this and missed the game, but read something funny in an article recapping the game.  They mentioned Stevie's goal and then they said the best #19 (Sakic) to play scored after the 3rd best (Yzerman)....they mentioned Toews is the 2nd best.  Of course, there was a note that was put in there to say that was just to anger Wings fans.  Thought is was funny with all the overrated discussion regarding Toews.

 

I thought it was funny they had to try so hard to make the Avs seem the better team all around.  If you have to do that then you definitely aren't the better team

When the players return to the bench they'll be sucking wind, and downing water.....When Larry Murphy returns to the bench they'll be sucking beer, and downing hot dogs.




#2654486 Has anyone been to a game in Buffalo?

Barrie....we probably are neighbors, I live in Burlington as well.




#2653421 Thanks for helping me. First time at the Joe.

Did she try going to another spot to go in? I've been there with people who had huge purses and they didn't say squat. Sounds like you got someone who was powerhungry

She didn't. I didn't know there were other spots. I honestly have no heard of that rule before in a NHL Arena. So, I was surprised when my friend texted me that. 

 

Great pics man! Can't wait until I go to The Joe on March 12th vs. the Rangers.

 

I always notice Zetterberg always has to stand behind Datsyuk when he's in the faceoff circle during warm ups. Must be a superstition? I have a couple pictures of them, one taken in Detroit another one in Buffalo.

Thanks! I love taking pictures for pre game. I couldn't take my long lens so I took my short lens. I always risk about trying to bring by big lens in and the person tried to say you have to take it back to your house. I'm like uh no, nice try. haha. 

 

Hey Sharkie!  Glad you had a great time.  I'd have lost the purse somehow if it was me  :lol: .  

 It was super fun! Just never heard that rule before. -_-

Yeah they always do stick handles in the same exact spot- been that way for years now. They also do a random passing drill sometimes along the blue line. I think it's superstition/tradition.

Hello Everyone,

 

A few weeks ago, I posted a new topic about going to the Joe and asking you what seats were the best seats to go for. And a few of you answered me which was really appreciated. And you were right, there is no bad seat at the Joe. So, thank you for the people that answered my questions. I did have a great time at the game. I mean it was a 6-5 Redwings game. The only thing that was missing in the game was a fight! I really liked the arena and how it seems like the crowd is on top of the players, you don't get that in many arenas for any professional sports game. It was just a bummer that my friend and his girlfriend couldn't come because she couldn't come in because her purse was too big. I've never seen or heard that was a NHL rule of coming into games? The purse wasn't that big either.

 

But here are some of my pictures from pre game:) Enjoy. Thank you again and good luck the rest of the way!

#2652118 9 (NINE!) player trade involving Phanuef

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 11 February 2016 - 05:23 PM

 
True, they spend top $ for mid level talent.

 
He may do what a lot of hockey players do, play in Toronto at the end of his career.


I'm not sure if they play in Toronto at the end of their careers or If playing in Toronto ended their careers. It's a toss up.


#2652165 '16-'17 The Joe's Farewell Season

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 12 February 2016 - 01:35 AM

I've been to JLA over 100 times now and while I'm excited for the new building, I don't think any rink in hockey sans the ORIGINAL Original 6 venues will ever compare to the atmosphere of the Joe.


#2651824 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

Posted by Opie on 10 February 2016 - 12:35 PM

If he didn't extend his arms in a cross check manner, or avoid an opposing player right after hitting the ref, I can see the "He was concussed" debate.

 

But his actions tell me he was pissed there was no call on the play and took it out on the first Zebra he saw.
