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.
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
Thanks, that would be much appreciated. There are 3 mods to the hundreds of members. We aren't online all the time, especially at the time these threads are being created, which is usually during work hours or at 3am. I'd rather get 12 reports about the same thread than no reports.
OMG, what an awesome photoshop opportunity that is!!
I generally don't mind the poaching, especially in Babcock's case, as people prefer working with certain people and others are offered a promotion, but it's kinda weird that it's the only time people tend to leave our front office.
Why wouldn't Pronger be in the HOF? He's one of the best players of his generation. I don't see them looking the other way because of some lame salary cap loophole the idiotic NHL has created. Pronger isn't the mastermind behind the league's idiocy.
Because you are eligible 3 years after you retire. Pronger is not retired, therefore he is not eligible. Not sure how they're working that out.
OMG. That would be AWESOME! Have like 6 people in Wings shirts walking down a dirt road with signs and like one shirtless guy with a huge beer belly sitting in lawn chair with a cooler watching the "parade."
