#2064947 Dan Cleary

Cleary looks like he's on a mission this year. I was at the game a couple Saturday's ago against Nashville, and he even had the "eye of the Tiger" going during warm ups!

I'm diggin' Clears longer hair!

#2063811 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Barrie on 16 November 2010 - 06:40 PM

As someone who lives in one of the west Toronto 'burbs, I have enjoyed the post lockout playoffs. I haven't had to deal with any loud mouth Leafs fans in April-May since 2004.

My Leaf fan friends don't want to talk playoffs, and that's fine with me.

#2063611 Banging on the glass at the Joe illegal?

I've never had a problem with people waiving to the camera at The Joe. I actually find it funny.

That's not a pile of broken glass. That's E-Bay souvenirs material. Turn those lemons into lemonade.

LOL, isn't America, and Canada, great?

#2060645 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by Barrie on 09 November 2010 - 09:38 PM

Ozzie get's his 400 win and retires after this year, question, is he going to the Hall of Fame? With 3 Cup rings and 400 wins, I say yes.

The thing that bothers me most about losing to the Pens in 2009 is that Ozzie was robbed of a Conn Smythe.

#2059213 Get ready folks, hitting is about to exit our game

I hate the whole, "he had his head down" argument. A hit to the head is a hit to the head!

Thornton always goons it up when things aren't going his way, and this is a classic case of him gooning it up.

Yup, just like Getzlaf, Perry, Iginla, and Cindy.

#2055970 Osgood injures his groin in practice

Posted by Barrie on 01 November 2010 - 02:41 PM

This is good news, Howard is better in almost every aspect of the game, and McDonald is better than Osgood as well...

With comments like this, I wish we still had the minus ratings. :cool:

#2055583 10/30 GDT: Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Barrie on 31 October 2010 - 09:36 AM

Hey, I got back from the game about an hour ago. The arena was about 1/3 empty! Ive never seen so many empty seats at The Joe. I checked the box score and the paid attendance was 18,177, but I wouldn't be surprised if 14,000 showed up. I didn't mind, the concessions lines were fast, it only took a couple minutes to get a hot dog and it was easy to move down to better seats.

Great bounce back game by Ozzie. Nice second goal by Datsyuk, only Dats could score that goal!

I should add, nice goal by Homer too. Classic Holmstrom! I had my Holmstrom jersey on and when he scored I was pointing to his name on the back of it, and stood up to point at it again when his name was announced over the PA. :lol: Fun times!

Poor Ozzie, I feel sorry for the guy.

Since a Pens fan came over here, I just had to post these, they never get old :lol:. Ohhh Flyer fans.

I remember how you guys cried and complained about how dirty it was when Cooke murdered Savard. Now that your dirty a$$ player hit someone you immediately pretend like it wasn't a shoulder. I'm not saying it was ---- Just saying --- Your guys double standards are entertaining to say the least.

Anyway ---- Gunna be fun to see the rubber match this year.

Pens in 6

Crosby Sucks! :cool:

#2052122 Kronwall's Hit on Selanne:

Posted by Barrie on 24 October 2010 - 11:08 AM

Then Beleskey should be banned for a life in NHL for his stupid elbow attempt on Franzen.

Yea I think that blatant attempt to hit a man in the head with a history of concussions was a lot worse than the Kronwall hit.

Seeing guys who hit from behind causing concussions only get 2 games, Kronwall's hit won't get anything.

#2047454 Wings need a goalie

Posted by Barrie on 15 October 2010 - 02:26 PM

We're fine. After 4 games we're 2-1-1, that's another 100 point season.

how many times do i need to clarify people about the salary cap. Ozzie has a 35+ contract which mean if he retires his salary still counts against the cap.

and about ozzie how many cups does he have? AND hes the backup and prolly one of the best backups in the league as far as success goes. and we have howard.

End rant

:thumbup: Good rant! I especially like your opening sentence, that made me laugh.

Preds win 3-2 in regulation over the CORE


Funny that I was cheering for the Leafs and the Preds tonight, two teams I don't like, however anyone but the Black Hawks and Pens!

Go Wings!
