#2119978 Jonathan Ericsson Watch Thread

Posted by Heaten on 21 February 2011 - 03:59 PM

Aside from his bone headed passes, I thought he's looked solid. Isn't this only in his 2nd year in the NHL? After reading some posts here, you'd think he was a 10 year veteran who won't ever develop. I'm sure he won't have any problems finding a contract next season with any other team in the NHL. But I'm sure Holland re-signs him.

Those who think Smith will be the savior on defense, he's not very good either.

#2119952 Hudler Haters - Don't let facts get in the way...

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 21 February 2011 - 02:24 PM

yes, he had a HORRIBLE start, but more than a quarter of the season since - look at the numbers:
Over the last 22 games:
22GP 5G 14A 19P +5

Some people will continue to hate him, but as was touched on in last nights telecast, Cleary, Datsyuk and Hudler have developed some amazing chemistry and that pass last night to Dats was pure beauty...

Hate all you want, but it's really starting to look like the guy just needed to get back up to NHL speed, and he has been one of our best players over the last 20+ games...

this is more or less what i said in another post about hudler. he was baggage for the first 30ish games and then remembered how to play NHL hockey again. the real test for hudler though is to be useful in the playoffs. his disappearing act in 2009 was epic and will hopefully not happen again this year. he's playing good, but still has alot to improve. he's 27 and has 1 good season under his belt. hopefully his near point a game pace continues and he proves he's a valuable part of this organization.

#2119644 Bettman threatens Edmonton.

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 20 February 2011 - 04:38 PM

He doesn't sound threatening to me. Maybe I'm not reading between the lines enough, but it sounds to me like somebody asked him what he thought of the situation, so he gave them an honest answer, which is that he agrees Edmonton needs a new arena. I agree that it's none of his business what the taxpayers and government of Edmonton decide to do with their money, and the fact that he IS putting his nose in Quebec City's business bugs me, but it doesn't sound like it's gotten to that point yet here. It sounds like it's the Oilers who are forcing the city to do something by saying they won't play at Rexall Place after the lease is up in 2014.

Somehow I really doubt the Oilers would leave Edmonton. Don't they have some of the best attendance numbers in the league, percentage-wise? I mean, I would imagine that's why Bettman wants them to build a new stadium, right? If the Oilers can suck that bad and still fill 17,000 seats, those are some enthusiastic people you've got there, so why not see what you can do with 20,000 seats? I mean, I know QC has some enthusiastic fans, too, but hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. It makes a lot more sense to me (at least in my pea brain) to take a team like Phoenix, who has awful attendance, and relocate it, rather than doing the Canadian Team Shuffle.

Maybe he was under the impression that there was a strike and the season started in January.

#2116442 Draper the goal scorer

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 February 2011 - 01:24 PM


Draper should retire. He's played better this season than I thought, but there's younger and bigger guys we need on our 4th line. Draper is not going to be around for much longer anyway.

He's been a staple of this organization longer than anyone but Lidstrom, however, it's time to move on.

Well they don't know that yet. Don't celebrate too early now. :P

Why would you celebrate someone's head injury?

Thanks for not playing tonight Pavel. <_<

Yzerman would have played.

#2109252 2/2 GDT: Franzen 5 + Red Wings 2 (7) at Senators (5)

Posted by BlueMonk on 02 February 2011 - 09:41 PM

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Zetterberg's 2 SOG per game streak ended. :(

You're correct. Thus ends the most arbitrary, meaningless streak in the NHL this season.

#2106099 Ducks Sued for Anti-Semitism by Former Draft Pick

Posted by 55fan on 27 January 2011 - 08:35 AM

What ever happened to having respect for the beliefs of others?

What ever happened to censoring yourself and taking your "audience" into account?

What ever happened to common decency?

Have we really gone so far with Political Correctness vs the false notion that "Freedom of Speech"= being able to say anything you want without caring what others thing and not be criticized?

My mom used to sum it up in two words: Be Nice.

Discussing and sharing one's beliefs is fine, and can be enlightening and beneficial. Having beliefs pushed on you is not, whether it is pro-<insert specific belief> or anti-<insert specific belief>.

On the other hand, the advantage of people being able to speak freely is that we can note who is a jerk (or worse) and avoid that person.

I don't think that suing is the answer, but it's a little late for anything right now.

#2102847 Komisarek in trouble with the LAPD

That's the hardest he's hit anyone since signing with Toronto. He's a bum.

#2102643 Komisarek in trouble with the LAPD

Posted by sleepwalker on 22 January 2011 - 11:36 AM

Oh, my. I read "hit woman during road trip" and thought it was a hit and run.

She slapped him first. Sauce for the goose and all that. I probably would have done the same had he lifted me (assuming he didn't get a hernia), but I would expect that if I hit someone that I'd be getting it back shortly.

If he gets charged, she should too as she hit first.

No she didn't, lets get real here. He assaulted her first by grabbing her and lifting her into the air.

It'd be one thing if he just said some flirty type stuff to her and she hit him, but he physically assaulted her in the middle of a fight and that is is prompted her to slap him.

Not so fast you idiots.

Seriously, someone go start www.letshatecrosby.com

The attention this kid gets on our boards has seriously detracted from the quality of these boards over the past 2 years.

Thanks for keeping us updated! Let me know when Crosby goes to the bathroom next too. I'm on pins and needles here.

The people who believe in this crap are the same people who believe in fate and destiny.
