#2508986 Ryan Malone arrested

Posted by Dabura on 12 April 2014 - 02:07 PM

Ryan Malone needs to be Suspended or Banned from the NHL. The NHL needs to make a stand. And if found Guilty he needs his money taking from him and kicked out of the NHL. And his name should also be X'd off the Stanley Cup. We need him to be the Poster Child so this stuff never happens again. I know what I'm saying is wrong and stupid right? But Pete Rose got Banned form the MBL for just Gambling on the Game for life. And was forever banned from being in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Even though he deservs to be there for all of his Hard Work he did in his Career. To me Ryan Malone should be Banned for life. Cause I see what Pete Rose did was not even as bad as what he did. 


Also Games are always Rigged and the Sport is always being Gambled on we just don't hear about it everyone alright? Ryan Malone what the hell where you thinking taking Drugs I hope you get your Championships taking form you and everything you ever achieved taking from you. Sorry kids look up to these Over Priced Players who have everything but do this kind of stuff.


Or they could just trade him to the Oilers.

#2508948 Puck Daddy: Trotz Head Coach for Caps

Posted by Dabura on 12 April 2014 - 09:21 AM

thats why i think that he is gonna retire and live in nashville,because that's been home to his family for 15 years,He lives the Predators way and i don't think he can leave to take a job somewhere else


Could he stay on with the organization, just in a different capacity? I'd like to see that happen.


Personally, I think the whole thing is kinda bulls***. I mean, I get it. I understand why it has to happen. But, to me, Barry Trotz isn't the reason why the Predators missed the playoffs. No Rinne + No top-end forwards = No playoffs. Now, Rinne's situation is, of course, no one's fault. But the top six? That's on the general manager. And if it's built the way it is because there's no money, then it's on the ownership.

Also, if you think about it, this team doesn't necessarily know what to do with a "meaningless" game. Like Babs said, we've been fighting for our playoff lives for almost the whole season. We were definitely due for a big letdown. This was the ultimate trap game.


I'm just rationalizing now.

I'm thinking Trotz in Toronto might make a lot of sense.

#2508491 Have the Wild Hit Their Ceiling?

Posted by Dabura on 10 April 2014 - 02:58 PM

Basically, the potential problem I'm seeing is that they've pushed all their chips into the middle for a veteran core. A forward's prime years are 25ish-30ish. Parise is 29. Koivu is 31. Pominville is 31. Moulson is 30. Vanek - since everyone's so sure he's headed to Minnesota - is 30. They have good young talent, but with all of their leaders having already played their best hockey, I'm kinda scratching my head here. To me, this looks like about a five-year window of opportunity, Cup-wise, and that's assuming they make some incredible progress in the ultra-tough West. Something in me says that's not at all what they were going for when they signed Suter and Parise and traded for Pominville and everyone said, "Oh s***, these guys are building the next Wings. They'll be competitive forever." (OK, maybe no one said that. But you get my point.)


You can say that we wouldn't make the playoffs in the Western Conference. (Personally, I think we would.) But how does that validate the Wild? We're in a transitional stage; just making the playoffs is a pretty big deal. The Wild? They want the Cup. Relative to their expectations, a first-round exit = abject failure.


I just find it weird. Like...this is it? This is the Minnesota Machine that everyone's been raving about? This is the team that's going to be a contender for years and years and years to come?

#2508418 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Dabura on 10 April 2014 - 07:27 AM

I've said it before, but the die hards that I met/was surrounded by at the WC were awesome and a blast to be around.


Obviously you were drunk off your ass.

If he doesn't win the Jack Adams this season, he probably never will. And I think there's something wrong with that.
