#2444643 Pronger is done

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 October 2013 - 12:33 PM

Pronger didn't do anything worse than what Chelios had done in his career.  As others have mentioned, he made the teams he was on better and carried a couple of them on his back to the Finals. 

 

I'm surprised Holmgren said that.  It's a pretty obvious thing but it's not like Pronger had announced retirement or anything.  He'll never play hockey again but hopefully his symptoms improve so he lead a mostly normal life and enjoy spending time with his kids.  Last I heard his symptoms sounded awful.

True, but Chelios evolved.  Pronger stayed an SOB.  Some people like that, I get it.  I never appreciated him.

Yawningly anti-climatic, and I can't say I'm heartbroken.  I've had a good hate on for Pronger pretty much his entire career. Glad he's not really hurt or anything, but I'm just as glad he's not playing anymore.

Can't say I'm really upset for Philly, either.  Does that make me a bad person?

B's announcers talking about how Detroit plays a good, clean game and doesn't need enforcers because they play the game "the right way."

I envy Preds fans - they got to be there at the inception of their team.  What wouldn't I give to see the Wings starting out?  Man, those were the days -  when men were men and refs nonexistent.  Bettman too!

Honestly, it serves them right for supporting this travesty for so long.  The NHL took over the team, they took over the debts.

#2440436 Parros Concussed

Posted by vladdy16 on 02 October 2013 - 08:36 AM

The original play happened off screen.  Once they showed the tape, it was pretty nasty.  He seemed to be out cold for a few minutes, then he tried to get up and couldn't.  Really glad he didn't shatter his jaw or anything.  

CBC was muttering about how they needed to get fighting out of the game because of things like this.  If that's their logic, heck, they should take the ice out of the game.  That's the really dangerous part.

Please let's not turn this into any kind of political discussion whatsoever.




#2437920 Gallant and Barch find a way around the new helmet rule

Posted by vladdy16 on 20 September 2013 - 10:25 AM

Setting aside what I consider to be the lunacy (and irony) of getting an unsportsmanlike penalty for removing your helmet before a fight when I consider it the gentlemanly thing to do, NJ and New York have figured out a way around it.

#2437912 Lidstrom will play in Winter Classic Alumni Game

Posted by vladdy16 on 20 September 2013 - 09:24 AM

The worst kept secret since the 2013 Winter Classic "announcement."  Fans knew months before the official announcement it was going to be Detroit/Toronto.  They act like it's the Red Wedding when in reality it's more like WikiLeaks.

 

Still, yay for The Perfect Human!

This was posted on the Bruins hfboards board a few min ago

 

Im gonna put the wings in the same category with the Devils and Florida. Boring games that offer little in the way of entertainment due to the nature of the organization the Bruins are playing against. These guys play a yellow, cheap assed, pick your spot game, cant stand their styleicon1.png.

They are good, but a poor team to watch play the gameicon1.png...
 
:lol:

 

This is an aberration IME; Bruins fans are usually pretty cool and discerning.  In all fairness, this was a beatdown for them, preseason or no.  Emotions are running high.

As I mentioned, I'm not able to watch the game right now so can someone please tell me are there goaltenders on the ice?

I think they have a cardboard cutout in the Boston net.

Beauty of a goal.  Bastards.

Cleary's been reading LGW.  Figured he'd better do something to placate the masses.  :lol:

Do you actually think we had puck luck last year?

Uh, no, hence the "we had luck last year?"  Even bad luck assumes some level of luck period.

I love watching the first game of the fall; it reminds me how fast and how freakin' awesome this sport really is.
