Anybody else having the least productive day at work ever?

Second only to Olympic hockey streaming.

#2628291 Crosby says Zetterberg most competitive player he ever faced as pro

I think that post was more of the "That was an average save" sarcastic type than disparaging the prowess of The Beard.



At least that's what I choose to believe.

And we're back to why the first thread was locked.  Stick to facts about the case and how this case is affecting hockey.  That's it.

#2626005 Kane case headed to grand jury

You're right.  The Wings would never allow a star player who was committing a crime, but not charged, with, let's say, hypothetically speaking, statutory rape, to continue playing under such heinous circumstances.  Classy Wings fans absolutely would never, ever continue to support such a player either.  So glad we're not like those awful Blackhawk fans who would cheer for someone who hasn't been charged with any crime. Thankfully that would never actually happen.

This does nothing to address what she said.  She was very specific in saying she speaks only to how she herself would handle the Wings handling the same situation in the same way.  Please desist in attempting to rile others up.

A worthy cause is promised a substantial sum of money over the next few years and we're here arguing about whether that's a good thing?


I weep for Wings fans.

Datsyuk's work ethic trumps Fedorov's sense of entitlement for me any day.

This sums up my feelings on the subject nicely:


Biggest takeaway from this @MarkLazerus column: GMs hear 'bargain buy?!' when everyone else hears 'felonies'


This doesn't just affect Hawks fans - the recent spate of issues plaguing NHL players has long been something we hockey fans have been pretty smug about not having to deal with. We've lost a lot of moral ground lately.

Nobody would get punched (even you kipwinger).  Maybe if certain members met up in 2009 or 2010, but not now.  Very tame around here.  


Now if number 9 looks like the guy in his avatar, then he might get punched.  

Hey, hey, hey!  Don't speak for everybody!   :tounge:

#2623686 Grantland: The Heavyweight Belt of NHL Rivalries

Posted by vladdy16 on 21 August 2015 - 05:27 PM

Pretty soon rivalries will be based on the actually game being played. How lame. I can't think of a single good rivalry that doesn't involve punching. Except the Yankees vs. The Red Sox, Michigan vs. Ohio State, North Carolina vs. Duke, or Liverpool vs. Manchester United.

Yep, obviously can't have bitter rivalries without fighting. You betcha.

No one said there can't be bitter rivalries without fighting, although hockey does lend itself to that being a large component.  Most here are lamenting the decidedly low bar that has been set for what constitutes a rivalry; something we've actually been doing since the press kept telling us we had one going with the Preds two seasons into their existence

Rivalries today just don't seem the same as they were 15 plus years ago.

They're not.  Used to be a rivalry grew from intense competition that left blood on the ice, literally and figuratively.  Now it's just whatever team is playing on Wednesday night.
