Rooster limit?  Joe Thornton talked about ***** so much in that interview this year that he was left off the team cause of the rooster limit?  :lol:

 

Well, your rooster can only be so big.

Never a bad play to put it on net.

I love that the Finns play such a physical game. Goes to show you don't have to be especially big or strong or mean to be a gritty, physical, hard-hitting team.

Right you are.  16 points in 52 games this year with a -15.  Ouch, he's better than that.

 

Actually, in all honesty, he kinda sucks now. But I like that he plays with an edge, sticks his nose in the dirty areas, can be a good net-front guy (see: his goal just now). I think he could sort of be what we wanted Cleary/Samuelsson/Bertuzzi/Tootoo to be: a gritty bottom-sixer with some scoring upside. And he's rumored to be on the trade block. Only issue: cap hit. (Something like 4.5.) Hurricanes would have to eat some salary, maybe take on Quincey.

 

Failing that, we could trade for Crosby. He's also pretty good.

Finns are really missing their wounded.

Talking about how Crosby has no room and it's really tough for him to do anything. I feel like that's kinda weak, because as soon as he scores, it'll be a never-ending chorus of "How do you stop Crosby? You pray. Really, that's all you can do. He's so skilled, so talented, he sees the ice so well..."




#2484310 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Dabura on 15 February 2014 - 07:34 PM

I would love to get him, but Boston has him thriving there and there's no way in hell they let him go.  Though if they actually wanted Q, then add in a good prospect in the Pulkkinen variety maybe and then our 1st or 2nd rounder, maybe Boston would bite on that.  And then our 3rd line is Abs-Helm-Smith and my heart explodes from excitement.

 

Or we could just play Brendan on the wing and refer to him as "Reilly."

 

BABCOCK: Hey, that puck's gotta go deep, Reilly!

B. SMITH: I'm not my brother!

BABCOCK: I've noticed!

Y'know who's pretty good? Brendan Smith...'s younger brother. Last I checked, he's on pace for around 25 goals. And he's only 22 years old.

I only wish that could've been the gold medal game.

They were my prediction to win the west this year.  Their team is so strong top to bottom.  Them and Boston is the finals I predict and would actually love to see.  Shattenkirk is a very good player as well.  Didn't look to get too much ice time today (I could be wrong though), but he's a good guy to fall back on if needed to step up.

 

They are a scary, scary team. No holes.

I have never watched a shootout and don't intend to start now.  Make the comments good, folks!  I've changed the channel.

 

You missed out, man. There was drama. There was hilarity*. There was epic. There was awesome.

 

*A goalie's worst nightmare: Staring down Datsyuk/Kovalchuk in a shootout over and over and over and over again. At the Olympics. In Russia.

 

Oshie should get a gold medal right now for that individual performance. And I loved that he looked to his 'tender immediately after he scored the winner. So much win in this kid.

I'm pulling for Patrick Kane.
