#1997960 Adam Burish: Chris Pronger Is The Biggest Idiot In The League

Posted by Nev on 11 June 2010 - 12:33 AM

Let me get this straight...

1) I say the factual statement that Burish is a scrub compared to Pronger, and would most probably lose in a fight against him, despite Burris's bravado.


Have you seen Pronger's fight card? Dan Cleary, Michael Handzus, Jiri Slegr........and, er that's about it I think. Guy is the biggest coward in the league.

And I'm with Doc on this one - if Burish can't criticise Pronger, then you can't criticise Burish.


#1997804 The Curse of Marian Hossa

Posted by Carman on 10 June 2010 - 07:12 PM

The second Crosby can step on the ice during any PK time is the split second I can give a s*** about these 2 being compared. Crosby cannot play both ends, its fact. Gretzky's point totals are definitely sickening but I would never consider him the best ever.


Crosby actually does play on the PK in critical situations.

It's just his abilities are much better used on the offensive, and Pittsburgh has plenty of very good depth players that can effectively kill penalites.

You do realize that Crosby averaged more PK time per game this season than Datsyuk did right?

Since when did the amount of PK time become the sole determining factor of someone's two-way ability anyway?

I like the fact that Burrish was scratched for like the last 3 games in the series, yet he comes out all dressed up in "his hockey suit" like he was actually part of the win. What a tool bag. At least Pronger played.

The season before when he was healthy he was a huge part of the Hawks PK and he's a great energy player. He's one of the best agitators in the league and he's more respectable then most because he will back up his actions more often then not.

He's a 4th liner, Pk's, fights, hits, can skate a regular shift, and can play decent enough in the offensive zone. He is exactly what Holland is looking for, thats why people want him signed.


He might be the biggest punching bag in the league. Have you seen his fight record?

He's worse than any of the players you've mentioned in those threads that you've started within the last week.

I love it when no name scrubs take shots at potential HOFers just because their team won.

"I Might punch him" lol give me a break, Burrish would get wrecked.


What NHL team do you play for again?

Q: Say, Adam Burish, I see your team has just won the Stanley Cup. Where are you going next?
A: Some other team next season!

#1997296 Toews: Most undeserving Conn Smyth winner in history?

Posted by blues_demitra38 on 09 June 2010 - 11:45 PM

The guy piles up secondary assists on his way to the finals, mails it in on the biggest stage and is awarded the Conn Smythe? I think, more than anything, this speaks to Chicago's depth. Personally, I think Niemi was more valuable to his team throughout the playoffs but it could have also gone to Duncan Keith or Patrick Kane as well. Yzerman look out, Johnny Toews is about to steal your legacy. :thumbdown:

Toews all the way.

Captains at the front of each line. As it should be.


#1994287 Yzerman also wanting Pat Verbeek

Posted by Doc Holliday on 04 June 2010 - 12:39 PM

You mean the exact thing I already said? My issue is with people who have the Stevie Yzerman of today confused with the Steve Yzerman of 5 years ago... I really don't see how your sarcasm applies to me. I'm the one saying that Stevie is thinking of Tampa first.

The Wings don't owe Tampa GM Yzerman anything.

If he's going to play hardball and try to poach from the Wings they shouldn't treat him any different than any other hostile executive.

My whole point was that these tactics are hostile business tactics-- there's no possible way to deny it. I hope Holland gives no quarter.

And for the record I'm assuming scouts and capologists have contracts since Holland, Nill and the rest of the upper management is signed to fixed term contracts.


You are acting like it is a deplorable move and how I'm "painting" it as a cool move. Yzerman should do whatever it takes to improve his team. If Holland doesn't like it he can deny him access to certain members of his staff.

There is nothing wrong with any of this. Stop getting up in arms about it especially since Yzerman just opened up shop in Tampa and needs people to work for him.


#1994816 Holmstrom signs 2 year extension

Posted by ShanahanMan on 05 June 2010 - 12:00 PM

Stop exaggerating, both lidstrom and holmstrom took small small hometeam paycut's.. we're talking a few 100k's here and there...


You're nuts dude. Teams would KILL to have a guy like Homer in the other team's crease. He could easily get 3 mil somewhere else.


#1994783 Bertuzzi states he will either stay with wings or retire

Hey man, gotta admire the dedication and loyalty on Bertuzzi's part. The guy doesn't want to go anywhere else. Sign him Kenny, and just add in bold print to the contract that he has to listen to an audio self-help tape called "Two hands Are Better Than One".

In other news, how in God's name is Alligator due for a raise? The guy led (and still does) the playoffs in penalty minutes, is a minus player, and contributed a measly 6 points. I never understood the love for this guy. Oh, I'm sorry, he "sometimes tries to hit things". We might as well have kept Downey then and gave him a raise....at least Downey freakin fought. Man o man I scratch my head at this stuff sometimes. Also, we're keeping Miller? Is that really necessary? Didn't see him in the Wings future to be honest. Would have rather dipped a bit into the free agent market. A raise for Speedy Gonzalez and Eaves is understandable though. Oh, and weren't the last like 3 years supposed to be "step-up seasons" for Filppula and Cleary? ;) :clap:


LOL Cleary hasn't done s*** since he got his NTC and Filppula is about as reliable as the weather forecast.
