#2014650 RUMOR: Wings Offer 1-year Contract to Maltby

Posted by Barrie on 13 July 2010 - 07:37 PM

I'd rather have Maltby than Modano. With Modano I'm sure the team would feel pressure to at least give him 3rd line minutes. Maltby can play 8-10 minutes or can be a healthy scratch without complaints.

Funny, I don't consider a game from 1996 as very old.

I think there's a thread about the Hawks if you're looking for a change of pace.

Haha, no thanks!

Yawn, another MacK_Attack Maple Leafs update. I hear enough Leafs stuff on the radio and TV, I come to LGW to get away from all that!

Just kidding MacK :lol:


#1997705 Adam Burish: Chris Pronger Is The Biggest Idiot In The League

Posted by Barrie on 10 June 2010 - 04:20 PM

Pronger is an idiot, but don't say it out loud like that! When you win the Stanley Cup, it's not like you'll never have to play another game! Now you're the team everyone wants a shot at.

A guy like Pronger thrives on this stuff!

CBC showed a street shot of Chicago, the streets are jammed!

Good to see the cup in a city that will go nuts for it!

That was nice to see. I can't have any hate for Scotty.

Agreed. No skates this time.

Hossa gets it first! 3rd time's a charm.

Despite playing for Chicago, Toews is a good guy. Good for him.

lol, all Bettman had to do was walk on the ice and he gets booed!

Wow what a weird ending... Congrats to the Black Hawks!

I laugh when I hear Brian Burke says he doesn't want to bottom out and rebuild through the draft. Second year in a row a team that bottomed out won the cup in less than 5 years.

I'm just glad it's not Bettman's little baby boy.

Of course, watch him somehow win the Conn Smythe. :P

Oh, it would be worth it to hear the Flyers fans react to that one!

Actually I was thinking they should chant "Crosby Sucks" when Bettman's out there.


#1996473 Worse Commissioner: Bettman or Selig?

Posted by Barrie on 08 June 2010 - 08:34 PM

Stern because since he's been commish, 1984, only seven different teams have won championships.

To each their own, but I don't have a problem with this at all! I like Dynasties, and I'm not a fan of one time Championships.

Funny, how the Lakers making a 3rd championship in a row and the Celtics a 2nd in 3 seasons, is favored by the NBA, and in the NHL they don't like it. The NHL likes one time Champions like Carolina and Anaheim, and don't like to see the Red Wings win again. It's no wonder why Bettman can't get a big American TV contract, there's no constancy in the league to keep fringe fans interested.

Take me and the NBA for example, I'm really only a fan if the Pistons are playing well, however a LA-Boston final, I'll watch because it's the Lakers and Kobe vs. the Celtics and Garnett. If it was say the Utah Jazz and Atlanta Hawks in the Final, I'm not interested.

Funny thing, with this year's Stanley Cup Final TV ratings, Bettman is going to say that American's are really starting to enjoy hockey now and that the Olympics created interest, when the reality is it's all Chicago and Philly, the 3rd and 4th largest TV markets in the country.

Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather a League cater to their better money making markets than the money losing ones. Stanley Cup Finals and brutal TV ratings from NJ-Anaheim, Calgary-TB, Carolina-Edmonton, and Anaheim-Ottawa really hurt hockey in my opinion.

Bettman by a mile!

Electrophile said it best, at least Selig can admit mistakes to the fans, Bettman talks to us like we're a bunch of morons!
