#2230579 Caps Fire Bruce Boudreau

on the other hand, I feel bad for this guy who became the scapegoat. it's not like you see him stand and do nothing on the ice...

#2229441 Jimmy Howard - Vezina winner?

Posted by akustyk on 25 November 2011 - 03:26 AM


Thatīs why heīs on the list for the Allstar-ballot... oh wait! :ph34r:

I'm perfectly OK with Wings not participating in this dumb popularity contest.

I'd rather watch Howard play his All-Star game in June. that's all I care... :)

#2228679 Crosby coming back

Posted by akustyk on 22 November 2011 - 07:25 AM

yep... I open TSN to watch highlights of yesterday's games...

of the 30 videos available on top page of the NHL section about 15 are about the return of Crysby...

you sure don't get the impression that he's shoven down our throats, huh?

I'm glad he's back. I'll be even happier two weeks from now, when I can watch a game/read an article
that doesn't mention the Jesus Crosby rebirth... mind you, he's just a player. good one, but just a player...

#2196769 Kaberle signs with Carolina

Posted by akustyk on 06 July 2011 - 02:44 AM

One of the most overrated players in the league

not necessarily. he is a decent D-man

but he did play in Toronto, hence he was overhyped and, considering he was one of their better and
more constant player, there was no chance for him to escape being overrated (by Toronto media) :D

I'm kinda ready to bet, his stock will rise once playing with less media pressure in Carolina ;)

#2185800 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

I don't care how much you hate the Commish.... have a little class when he's announcing the Stanley Cup Champs. This moment isn't about him, it's about Boston.

"I bet Sidney Crosby is at home watching this, I'd like to hear his thoughts on this game..."

oh come on... admit you're just another Sindy hater... :cool:

#2185539 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

#2175199 Congratulations to the Sharks

Posted by akustyk on 13 May 2011 - 03:47 PM

congratulation to the Sharks, who at the end of the day were the better team, with as close margin as can get.

and I sure as hell want them to eliminate the Canucks...

great series, too bad our Wings couldn't advance...

#2159425 Question: Why do Wings fans hate the Canucks?

Posted by akustyk on 27 April 2011 - 04:49 PM

I don't, and am not sure about the general nature of your observation.

truth being said, it's often difficult to find sympathy towards Canadian teams once their fanbases start proclaiming "this is the year"
and keep yapping about whatever calls refs missed. Leafs fans used to be particularly brutal with this (every season between 1998-2005
they proclaimed Maple Laughs cup winners around mid-February), and now that they suck it's Nucks fans who do most of such stuff.
I'm far from imputing this is any majority of fans, because most Nucks fans are nice and passionate ppl, but it's difficult to escape this hype.
I can easily imagine other fans having similar feelings towards Wings hype in 2002 for example.

#2116516 Isles vs Pens

Posted by akustyk on 14 February 2011 - 04:01 PM

the inevitable outcome of this affair is that people feel much more sympathy to the Isles and much less (if there were some left) to Bettman's pamperboys.

and that Mario is whining... did anyone expect something better from him?

#2116190 Isles vs Pens

Posted by akustyk on 13 February 2011 - 04:38 PM

mind you... the same Mario who used to play with Kasparaitis and Ulfie (Samuelsson), and who used to pay the bills of Ruutu and employs Cooke...

now Lombardi was fined 50k while Lemieux escapes with nothing, and people still wonder why so many fans say, that the league is biased towards Penguins...

oh the irony..

#2096101 2011 All-Star Rosters Game rosters named

Posted by akustyk on 11 January 2011 - 06:45 PM

bad thing: Nick Lidstrom will not have some rest. and I'd rather have him spare some forces for Cup Finals. he's uberhuman but it's still 40
so every day off is better than some stupid popularity contest.

good thing: the rest of the guys get some days off. if I had a choice I'd rather enjoy my All Star Game in June when my Wings face whomever wins the East ;)

The ASG is like a glorified free skate. Their practices are 10x harder on them than the ASG will ever be. Nick will be fine.

I'd rather sit at home, watch a movie or take my kid to swimming pool or cinema,
than take the flight, stay outside my house for a couple of days and above all
have to endure some Marc-Andre Flurry giving interviews like he was, I dunno,
quality goalie or something like that... :blush:
