#2178198 (1) Vancouver Canucks vs. (2) San Jose Sharks

Nothing would make me more happy than if refs start calling ALL dives. Once the diving is gone, fun hockey to watch will be back. These two teams are a bunch off****** hacks, and refs are getting humiliated.

Why couldn't the Wings expose the Sharks like the Nucks are doing? Sigh...

1) The Red Wings did not dive well enough.

2) The Red Wings special teams was horrendous. Power play disappeared.. was the difference in that series and as you can see is the same way here in this series too.

Start Smith in game 5..I know Roloson got you this far, but Smith seems to be on top of his game, ride the hot goalie.

Absolutely not. You ride Roloson all season, he gets you to conference finals and you bench him after one bad game in favor of a guy that was spending time in the minors? Roloson is their guy for better or worse.

#2177745 Subliminal Sidney Crosby Messages in NHL commercials?

Posted by CaliWingsNut on 20 May 2011 - 03:56 PM

Career post season points per game of players playing right now.

Feel free keep bashing Crosby, I'm trying to stay away from this. It's just sad to see so many irrational opinions here.

How am I bashing Crosby? I'm pointing out your delusions based on irrational love.

Right now, well... he didn't play in the playoffs. So anyone who scored a point did better.

Ericsson REALLY sucks.

I appreciate the kindness, but I'd be lying through my teeth if I were to wish you good luck. I cannot bring myself to root for your team. Sorry, but I have to be honest. I'm rooting for Boston.

No worries. I can relate. My unwritten (now written) rules to fandom:

1) never root for the team that bounced yours from the playoffs

2) never buy a pro jersey and put YOUR name on the back of it

3) never wear a jersey for team X to game being played by teams Y & Z

4) never buy cotton candy at a game, unless it's for your 6 year-old son/daughter/nephew/neice that's sitting by your side

5) never stand up, for Christ's sake, while the puck / ball is in play (note: a goal in the net, does not constitute as a puck in play)

6) you may only support a team that is within driving distance of your birth place, or your father grew up rotting for them

7) you must hate with a passion at least one other sports team, preferably the next closest team within driving distance of your birth place.

8) never, ever, throw anything onto the field of play unless it's a hat after a hat trick (I know this will rub some of you marine life haters the wrong way!)

9) paying for a ticket to the game doesn't give the right to be a ******. Behave at a game like you would if your mom was sitting behind you.

and finally...

10) never flip allegiances between two teams. It's forbidden.

Agreed. I try not to get into the debates because he's clearly the whipping boy here at LGW. But he's a fine #5 D man.

The Wings paid $1.1 mill for Salei this season, and E ended up playing more minutes than him, and for a while Salei was competing with Kindl for the number 6 spot. I don't know what people expect for a bottom pairing guy. Ericsson was dead last in the draft and is a converted forward. If he makes it as a solid #5 guy, that's a win for the Wings. If he developed into a #4 guy, I'd be ecstatic.

If the Wings can sign someone better, so be it. But if they do sign him for $1.25 mill, that's going to be hard to beat. He knows the system and he's a known quantity to the coaches.

I don't know how much more upside he has, but he did play a little more physical. He needs to improve there, and figure out how to get his slapshot off much, much quicker.

Too much logic in this post.

#2176826 Subliminal Sidney Crosby Messages in NHL commercials?

Posted by Learn2LuvIt on 18 May 2011 - 02:30 PM

Rocket Richard trophy
Stanley Cup (and another Finals appearance)
Art Ross
Olympic Gold Medal
World Junior Gold medal

has 82 points in 62 career playoff games and had 66 points in 41 games this season before his injury.

All before he's what, 24 years old? If a Red Wings player had done all that you wouldn't call them one of the most talented players of all time?

I think he's a snotty little ****** much of the time, but Crosby is already one of the all time greats, and it's bad for the NHL if he's not playing. Wouldn't it be bad for the NHL if Datsyuk wasn't playing?

It's still a canadian game and Sid is a Canadian superstar. Or course they're going to talk more about him. Yes, it'd be great if they focused more on some of the other great players in this league, but that's not his fault. And honestly, I've been an Ovechkin fan but Crosby is clearly the better of the two, and the gap was widening before his injury.

If your ALL TIME GREAT'S list is made up of 10+ players...than yes you may have an arguement. But I believe when most talk about "All Time" anything, most have a very short list (standard list...not in this order: Gretzky, Howe, Mario.....Done!) If you want to run this list into the 15+ or 20+ greatest of All Time players...you may have an arguement. But today he's not in the top 5 of All Time. Probably not even close. But ask yourself this....if you have to go 6+, 10+, 20+ deep into your "All Time" list ....are they really the best/most talented of ALL TIME??? No, not really. Really a great players, yes...is it fun to rank the really great players, yes...All Time- no.
You say you think he's a ******, but in all honesty in think your a fan of his or else I'm mistaken and your defending him blindly and not realizing that a lot of people don't even think he's the best player in the league right now, or even the past few years (ever since AO has turned it on). If you have to argue the notion that you believe he is the better player than AO, and the "gap has been widing before his injury", then he's clearly not "ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS". You might want to look at the great history of this game and some of the truely "all time greats" players. Even Don Cherry who is a Sid slappy has been quoted as saying "he's not there yet, but by God when I retire he just might be". Further debating that he's better than AO blows up your point.

Well, if we're looking at this season, Franzen never had an 11-game stretch or longer where he managed better than a point-per-game.

This is why it is pointless to debate you.

You go by "projections" of small samples to make your point look better.

When you have to take those small samples based on him playing on the same line as the best overall player in the game, then you have a problem.

You people are a god damn joke. A few years back you were saying pretty much the same s*** about Kronwall and before that it was Jiri Fischer. It's Ericsson's SECOND f***in year in the NHL.

#2176240 (1) Vancouver Canucks vs. (2) San Jose Sharks

Posted by vladdy16 on 16 May 2011 - 03:41 PM

Hey, I am 100% on the Nucks bandwagon, but it sure looked to me like San Jose played just as well if not better than Vancouver. Admittedly I didn't watch the whole game - it was too close for my comfort. I'm being a whiny ***** - I don't want to see good hockey in this series; I want to see Vancouver do unspeakable things to San Jose.
