#2204962 Datsyuk or Zetterberg

Posted by Heroes of Hockeytown on 23 August 2011 - 07:07 PM

But those who are saying he's more clutch than Zetterberg have a very short memory. Z is as clutch if not moreso than Dats. Since the lockout, Z has been over a point per game player in the postseason. And he's coming off an 80 point season where he was a major factor in carrying the team while Datsyuk was out. His points just aren't as dazzling as Dats.

I'm not sure if it's true anymore (if not then he's certainly still near the top), but since the lockout he leads the league in playoff goals and points. EDIT: After some more research I'm fairly confident that he's still number one in both categories. Hank is narrowly ahead of Danny Briere, with 94 points to Briere's 93.

If Hank is anything, he's The Determinator. He'll win the game! That's what he does! That's ALL he does! You can't stop him!

I hope Cindy is able to come back.... then take another vicious blow to the head....only to end up sidelined for the rest of his career.


#2204428 Crosby's 2012 Season now in Question

Posted by toby91_ca on 19 August 2011 - 08:20 AM

It's mostly in nhl player polls that have ask the question to the players "Which player complains the most on the ice?" and so on. And crosby wins by wide margins most all the time. I would have to look them up but i have seen them. He gets hated because how good he is? Thats used a lot in defending him. my hate is more along the lines of im tired of seeing him and having him rammed down my throat when there are players all over the league that should be pushed as well. To pick one player out of so many great players and make a poster child out of him in a sport like hockey where fans are so passionate about their own team you will get a ton of strong hate for that said player no matter how good he is. I just think they messed up when picking one person to try and sell hockey. I think thats why they started pushing the whole crosby vs ovechkin thing because they started seeing how much hate crosby was getting. But as far as wishing him ill will im not even about that. I hope he does play. That would totally suck to go out like that with that much skill and being so young. Oh and i don't want any excuses for the pens fans when we beat the snot out of them hehe :D

Please look up the results of these polls and share them with us. There is a big difference between complaining to officials on the ice and having bad character or being a bad person/poor role model. Yzerman complained with the best of them and I think most would hold him in high regard as a human being.

Just to give another example, similar player polls show players "RESPECT" Crosby way more than Ovechkin...what does that mean?

it's pretty pathetic that some of you would wish to see one of the best point producers and most talented players in the nhl never step on the ice again just because you're still bitter about a SCF loss a few years ago.

all this talk about his "character" make it seem like he's sean avery.

get a grip.

also, LOL at maltby "not being a ******". talk about homer-goggles at their worst.

They should test having no Matt Cooke in the league.

That one doesn't need testing, it just needs to be implemented.

Maltby isn't a ****** though.


Maltby was a total ******. The only thing was that he was OUR ******, and we loved him. He was always stirring s***, being a pest, running his mouth, but never actually backed his words by dropping his gloves.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

The guy obviously had problems; he grabbed a fan in the crowd, rage issues at the very least.

I flamed him then for it, but now that seems petty.
It's hard to call for someone's head when they didn't have it themselves.
RIP Mr. Rypien.

tbh that fan prolly deserved it.

I have to think that you just thought to yourself, "What is the most over-the-top ironic thing I can say" - and came up with that.

I know, right. And those innocent bystanders that get hit by stray bullets during drive-by shootings deserve it too, cause, like, why were they sitting on their porch like that just waiting around for bullets to hit them?


C'mon. We are all in shock Rick died, but be honest, that kid was just standing there clapping his hands and got attacked.

anyone that hangs anywhere near people that are shot in drive byes are usually scum. but you dont know what that fan said. maybe the refs shoulda let him fight somone on the ice then this wouldnt have happend, I blame the refs for ruining the fun.

wow - I never knew there were so many PhD's floating around on the LGW message boards. I'll come here for expert opinions on things people generally have no idea what they are talking about more often.

All in one calender year we've seen Probert, Rypien, and Boogaard die and Crosby's career maybe done, and still no mention by the NHL about eliminating head shots. Someone has to die on the ice before they do something.

I understand Rypien's death was due to depression, but getting punched in the head didn't help his situation.

its the players fault if there skating up the ice with their head down. and players that fight no the risk.

Wow, being neg'ed for simply stating that anger or being mad at an individual who takes their own life due to depression is the wrong emotion. The fact of the matter is that sadness is the correct emotion to feel about this. Sadness that Rick was never able to get control of his disease or see a doctor that was able to help. Neg this all you want. That's the truth.

If he comes back, how long will the suspension be to the player who LEGALLY checks him and knocks him back out?

Correct. Please acknowledge this and avoid making pretentious statements.

I have to think that you just thought to yourself, "What is the most over-the-top ironic thing I can say" - and came up with that.

I've gone from sadness and grief last night to a bit of anger at Rypien today for wasting his life. He had it pretty good when looking at things from the surface. I also realize the anger I feel is likely born of ignorance about clinical depression. I don't know. It's just all so tragic on so many different levels. I loved the guy and maybe I'm being selfish that I won't get to see this little guy take on guys a foot taller who outweigh him by 70 pounds ever again. I know he was no longer a Canuck and I was pissed about that, but still, this is all so s***ty. I guess he will always be a Canuck now.

If that's your thought process, than you truly don't understand depression.

That's not a knock on you, as you claimed ignorance about the disease. I'm just confirming the fact that you don't know enough about it.

RIP Rick.
