#2092156 THN's Ross McLean "Scouting Blog" - Teemu Pulkkinen

Sounds encouraging to have two well regarded prospects at the WJC-- go JKROK (KNow what I'm sayin?)


#2086784 Pierre McGuire at his best.

Posted by dicksmack on 29 December 2010 - 09:10 PM

Ha Ha nice rip on Pierre. The thing I can't stand about him is exactly this kind of homer-logic. It's so obvious when people will throw up any piece of s*** reason to justify their emotional stance on an issue.


#2076615 Tootoo's HUGE hit

Posted by dicksmack on 12 December 2010 - 11:09 AM

What a hit! I never understood all the Tootoo hate. He's the kind of guy you'd love to have on his team, he's actually a pretty interesting guy.


I don't understand your poor grasp of douchebaggery...

But yeah, clean hit for once...


#2076597 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by dicksmack on 12 December 2010 - 09:29 AM

As long as we have Bettman and his Communist cap, we will continue to see big market supported franchises suffer for long periods of time. I don't understand why we have to destroy big markets to fund empty arenas etc and all the other excuses. A luxury tax that was suggested here on LGW before was the best idea ever, would have hurt noone and helped some of the smaller, but more durable in terms of longevity teams.

I shudder to think of the amazing dynasties over the years and great competitive teams that didnt always win cups, that never would have happened with the cap, eg Detroit, Montreal, NYI, Edmonton etc. Those things sell the game. People who love the big guys go to see the stars, people who hate them come to see if their team can beat them. This forced assimilation is BS. Look what the cap has done to Chicago. They shouldnt have had to lose players from their cup team... how can you keep a team together and the fans feel like family anymore. (and all the cap supporters crying about buying a cup in the past...REALLY? If that were the case, the Leafs ironically would have won plenty of times in the last 20 years, and the Rangers more than once, etc etc)

I don't like Toronto, but I feel horrible for them, and it's unfair, and I don't see them making the playoffs anytime soon. I feel bad for their fans




You can't be serious. The salary cap has nothing to do with the decades of poor drafting and management in Toronto and the seeming disregard for a fan base that will gobble up the garbage on their plates, belch, and beg for more. Toronto fans deserve what they get because they are too busy pointing their jealous fingers at teams like the Wings and saying absurd things like "the wings buy their cups," instead of asking questions about their own organization and demanding changes be made and voting with their feet if they aren't satisfied. But they seem perfectly content to wallow and swallow so f***'em.


#2069421 Pronger falls victim to "Avery Rule"

Posted by dicksmack on 27 November 2010 - 10:50 AM

Wonder how long Homer is called for an unsportsmanlike penalty. Blocking the goaltenders view of the puck surely is unfair and therefore must be considered unsportsmanlike, right? :rolleyes:


You aren't getting the idea. A player can stand in front of the goalie in an effort to deflect pucks as well as try to screen the goalie. Waving your hand in front of the his face serves no other purpose but to block his view and it looks ridiculously bush league. Excellent call by the ref.


#2068890 Pronger falls victim to "Avery Rule"

Posted by dicksmack on 26 November 2010 - 05:46 PM

Putting your hand in front of the goalie's view like that is bus©h league. Good call. We have to draw the line here. You can stand in front but waving is ridiculous. It's goaltender interference: that's why Kipper was hacking away like that--I don't blame him. I stood to gain in my fantasy league if that goal counted but I just think we can't tolerate this crap.



#2067164 Flames Fans Blame Refs

How they pronounce "Datsyuk" in Calgary: ...Oh NO! NO! NO! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!


#2063805 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by dicksmack on 16 November 2010 - 06:20 PM

The funny thing is, perhaps it's the blind loyalty that is keeping the leafs down. If these people wouldn't be so ready to still pay big money for tickets and everything else despite chronically being known as "Loserville," perhaps the financial pressure might force some changes to be made. To me, it's dumb to want to pay for an inferior product year after year. So no, maybe Leafs fans don't deserve better.


#2058748 An Unlikely Scrap

Posted by dicksmack on 06 November 2010 - 04:56 PM

Crosby had no problem taking him down in the corner, i don't know where you get this idea that he does this only near refs and th bench.

The blind Crosby hate in this thread astounds me. So much jealousy, I don't get it. I don't like the guy either, but nor do I follow the sheep mentality that the vast majority here do about bashing him and exaggerating circumstances. Crosby is a turd, but I don't understand th blind hate he gets for every action he does.



Crosby didn't take him down in the corner, he fell down on him. Criticism isn't necessarily blind hate if you give reasons. I'm just pointing out the obvious (guys like you need it) that it's cheap as hell to give a little mini crosscheck at the bench where there is no chance of being taken to task for it. Everybody including Crosby knew he wanted no part of Getzlaf. The fact that this non-event is headline news shows the blind love for Crosby--oooooh Sid got into a fight now he's a real badass--well not with real tough guys, he isn't. Why would I be jealous of Crosby when I have the best all around player in the world on my team in Pavel Datsyuk.


#2054072 10/28 GD: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by dicksmack on 28 October 2010 - 07:20 PM

I would gladly trade Jakub Kindl for an Amazon Kindle anyday :)




What do Jane Mansfield and Nefertiti and Jakub Kindl have in common?

Answer: well known busts...


#2051146 "Why I hate this obnoxious hockey team"

Posted by dicksmack on 23 October 2010 - 11:43 AM

I get that some other cities' fans might resent the whole "Hockeytown" thing but other than that this gal is spewing mindless hate. Aside from Franzen, we don't have any known soft players. The whole "the Wings play boring hockey" thing really amuses me because it's blatant jealousy. If you don't like watching some of the most skilled players in the world and a big hit from Kronwall or Stuart you just don't like hockey. This chick clearly is a non-journalist who wrote a non-article.


#1988139 LOL at the Sharks

Posted by dicksmack on 22 May 2010 - 08:01 AM

I have no problem with Chi winning the cup if they do cuz this is their big shot at it before reckoning with the cap next year. But Go Habs!


#1917332 Is Datsyuk a lock for the Selke?

Posted by dicksmack on 16 March 2010 - 03:56 PM

Datsyuk is best two-way forward in the game and it's not even close. Nobody can do the things he does out there... Noooooobody.

He's won the Selke twice with less pk time than other notables... so why should it be the deciding factor now?


He's not a lock by any stretch and frankly I'd be surprised if he did given Detroit's questionable team defense and goaltending this year.
If he had Kesler's goalie, he might be a lock.
