#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

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.

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

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.

But he looks like a penis.

and acts like a dick!

#2095829 Osgood Out 6-8 Weeks

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.

#2092465 Crosby Out with Mild Concussion

Posted by Barrie on 07 January 2011 - 04:50 PM

Just as long as he's playing March 21st at The Joe, I got tickets and looking forward to around round of the "Crosby Sucks" chant.

#2091170 1/4 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Oilers 3

Posted by Barrie on 04 January 2011 - 11:41 PM

He's just making the saves when they need to be made.

Just like he has his entire career. Ozzie isn't flashy, but all he does is go out there and wins.

#2090112 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Barrie on 03 January 2011 - 07:19 PM

A friend of mine posted some Leafs jokes on my facebook, I'll share them here..

What's a common theme with the Toronto Raptors, Blue Jays, Argonauts, and Maple Leafs, aside from all being from Toronto?... None of them know how to play hockey.

What do you call 22 millionaires watching the playoffs?... The Maple Leafs.

Why doesn't Hamilton have and NHL team?... Then Toronto would want one too.

It's a sad fact that most people who witnessed the Leafs win their last cup were in diapers... It's a fun fact that the next time they win, those same people will be in diapers again.

Man goes into a bar with his dog to watch the Leafs game. Bartender says it's ok, so long as the dog doesn't cause any trouble... When the Leafs score their first goal, the dog leaps off the bar stool, does a backflip and dances around on its hind legs. The bartender says to the man, "Hey that's pretty sweet! What happens when they win a game?"... The man replies, "I dunno. I've had him for 3 years and we're yet to see it happen!"

What do the Leafs and the Titanic have in common?... The both look good until they hit the ice.

#2090110 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Barrie on 03 January 2011 - 07:13 PM

I was thinking today, and asked a few people I know...

I think another indication of a future of a franchise is how many prospects they have in the Jr. Championships (we have 5 :thumbup:). Does anyone know how many Leafs prospects are in the World Jr.'s? I haven't heard any reports on the FAN590 in Toronto about how a Leaf(s) prospect is doing. My guess it's zero.
