#1972032 I Respect-ED The Sharks

Posted by Barrie on 02 May 2010 - 11:53 PM

I've really been disgusted with the Sharks diving and the no diving calls yet by the refs! It's funny how European's are thought of as divers, and the Sharks are the team in this series with more Canadians.

I'm starting to see a trend in hockey the last few years where the Canadian born hockey players seem to have the least amount of class compared to players born in other countries.

Maybe it's because I'm a Red Wings fan, I don't know, but it seems like Canadians now are the first to whine and complain to the refs, deliver cheap shots and hits from behind, dive, and lose their temper the fastest. The Europeans now seem to be more cool headed under pressure, don't whine as much, don't cheap shot as much, and don't tend to dive as much. They seem to be a more classier bunch.

Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but if you read my posts around the Olympics, you saw how unimpressed I was with the Canadian Olympic team and I'm Canadian! I saw most of those guys as hot heads, whiners, and cheap shot artists.

Crosby's entertaining to watch when his team is down. All his facial expressions and complaining to the ref.

Edit: It's a show within a show!

lol, I can read lips. In that scrum behind the net Abby said to someone on the Sharks, "I'll f--in kill you man!" :lol:

Coyote fans should chant "Let's Go Bryzgalov", he's the only reason the game is close.

Typical playoff style hockey, a team riding a hot goalie.

If you were an actual Red Wings fan you'd know there's no such thing as 'second favorite'

there can be only one... as they'd say in highlander

I have a second favorite team too, Buffalo.

I'll probably get negative votes for this, but my second favorite baseball team is the Yankees, and my second favorite Football team is the Cowboys.

awwww Legwand on the breakaway, close one

Yea great save on that one.

Oh, Preds just scored :siren:

I love that "HEY... YOU SUCK" when they play Rock and Roll Part 2 after goals. :lol:

I can't believe I'm saying this, but great crowd in Nashville tonight!

Great bounce back game by Howard.

#1950145 How will this series end predictions

Posted by Barrie on 18 April 2010 - 10:31 PM

Well for my hockey pool I said Wings in 5, so I was wrong there. I'm not going to make a new pick, all I'll say is in 1998 we were down 2-1 to Phoenix in the first round and we ended up winning in 6. I hope history repeats itself.

#1950010 Ozzy for game 4?

Posted by Barrie on 18 April 2010 - 08:10 PM

Stay with Howard win or lose. If he's the future goalie, let him get playoff experience.

I'd like to point out, 3 of the 4 times we've won the Cup, we were behind in the first round.

Been there, done that.

Posted by Barrie on 08 April 2010 - 10:20 PM

Sidney Crosby told them to change it to Guerin. Crosby with 49, Guerin with 21. Class Act yet again Crosby, nice job :thumbup:

Gary Bettman is that you?

Here you go. They clipped it and sped it up weird tho, I'm not a huge fan of it. Should have shown the initial shot and then dialed it back.

Man, I got chills again, 14 years later!

Stevie Y... I love that guy!
