#2100844 Which NHL player have you met

Posted by Barrie on 20 January 2011 - 07:17 PM

My coach also invited Steve Yzerman to our end-of-the-year hockey party. We're all in our coach's basement shooting pool and coach walks down with Stevey Y behind him and is like "Boys, I'd like to introduce you to a friend of mine." Stevey's all quiet and shy and just goes "Hi, guys."

Who was it on here that said they won a contest one time for him and a few friends to watch a game from the owners box? He said Holland came in and started talking to them. When Stevie came in he actually introduced themselves to them saying, "Hi guys, I'm Steve". :lol:

#2100644 Wings Negotiating w/ Nabokov

Posted by Barrie on 20 January 2011 - 03:40 PM

Not stating the obvious, just thinking out loud...

Funny how this works, Nabokov is a free agent, but has to clear waivers to get signed. Being a free agent means you can sign where you want, but in this situation he could get claimed by a team he doesn't want to play for. Interesting...

#2100237 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Figured this deserved a nice little....



Gotta love kicking the Leafs when they're down. :lol:

#2100075 Crosby on strike

Posted by Barrie on 19 January 2011 - 12:35 PM

God damn, you guys all whine like Sidney Crosbys...

We saw Pittsburgh in the finals 2 years in a row. They're officially on our s*** list. We're going to discuss, debate, and ***** about their star player. If you don't want to read it, don't click on the thread. People act like every thread around here gets taken up by "Crosby sucks" comments, and that's not true.

I think its very relevant to discuss this potential Crosby snubbing the ASG thing, because our guys got dinged for doing just that. As for that being rumors and hearsay, so is about 99% of what we post here. This is coming from a semi credible news source as well, its not like someone just picked up the info on a random blog.

Agree, we talk about it, because it's making the news! I'd rather not hear about Crosby, but everything he does is front page news, so I'll react!

#2099848 Crosby on strike

Posted by Barrie on 18 January 2011 - 08:52 PM

Crosby's mad? Really? I'm the first person to cry for a suspension and get thugs out of hockey, but I've seen both hits on Crosby, and neither player I feel should be suspended. The one in the Outdoor game was, no question, an accident, and the one against Tampa looked harmless, just made worse since Cindy already has the concussion.

Edit: Just when I was feeling a little sorry for that snot nosed little punk too!

#2097820 Holmstrom suffers a broken hand

Posted by Barrie on 14 January 2011 - 11:39 PM

Clearly 20 year olds don't break their hands.

Right, or gets his hand cut by a skate, blindsided by an elbow, or a bruised knee.

#2096914 San Jose Sharks

Posted by Barrie on 14 January 2011 - 08:36 AM

I'm not surprised the Sharks are having a bad season. You would think after all those playoff disappointments, it would finally get to them physically and mentally.

Serves them right after all that diving they did last year against us. I was completely disgusted with their play, and have no sympathy for what their going through right now.

#2096763 Mike Milbury is at it again

Posted by Barrie on 13 January 2011 - 08:55 PM

Another reason why I change the channel at the intermissions of CBC, TSN, and NBC Hockey broadcasts. I don't have time for this kind of analysis.

#2096633 Ron Wilson violates salary cap rules

Posted by Barrie on 13 January 2011 - 12:16 PM

In the dressing room, ok, in the hallway for tv cameras to see, no. I agree with whatever discipline the NHL gives to the Leafs.

#2096529 Next Sens GM...Pierre McGuire?!

Posted by Barrie on 13 January 2011 - 12:09 AM

But he looks like a penis.

and acts like a dick!

#2095829 Osgood Out 6-8 Weeks

Posted by Barrie on 11 January 2011 - 12:39 PM

Say what you want about Ozzie's last couple seasons, but I think this is a big loss. Ozzie was playing well this year.

#2095058 Claude Lemieux & Darren McCarty

Posted by Barrie on 10 January 2011 - 06:01 PM

Haha, I guess we all have to grow up sometime.

This is such an interesting statement. After watching Darren and Claude shake hands on OTR a while ago, and thinking about it again today, I was wondering if I should just "let it go". Lemieux crushed Draper's face and instead of apologizing added fuel to the fire the next year saying he made Draper's career, made him another $100,000, and commented on his low goal scoring stats. From what I've read Draper and Lemieux still haven't made amends. Rumor has it Lemieux has tried to call Draper, but Draper hasn't called back (and after the stuff Lemieux said the next season, I don't blame Kris. I don't have time for Lemieux either). Plus Lemieux was one of the biggest cowards in NHL history always picking on guys smaller than him.

To each their own, but personally I feel Lemieux's actions, especially what he said about Draper the next season, is unforgivable... For me anyway.

Edit: From what I've read too, I don't think Claude have ever thought he did anything wrong.

#2094688 Claude Lemieux & Darren McCarty

Posted by Barrie on 09 January 2011 - 06:39 PM

What do you mean by anything?

Those two have made up, they get along. Lemieux said he respects McCarty for what he did, and understands it. He said no hard feelings. He said he didn't necessarily Turtle cause he's a *****, but one of McCarty's first punches landed and knocked him dizzy. They've made up, they've moved on. If you still have a problem with it, than I guess it's just that. Your problem.

I guess it's my problem too. Lemieux is a scumbag.

#2093509 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by Barrie on 08 January 2011 - 12:33 PM

A blindside elbow to the head is not something that is part of the game, but I'm sure our 2 minute PP really got Kostopolous thinking about his actions :rolleyes:

Even the small suspensiion he"l get if he gets one, he'll still be out there doing the exact same s***

Agree. Personally I think players like this should be kicked out of the League. That's the only way to send a message to these no talent cheap shot artists.
