#2519371 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by vladdy16 on 06 May 2014 - 08:55 AM

Thanks, Kipwinger, for posting Subban's response, but this really is all that needs to be said about that topic.  Hockey-only discussion going forward, please.

We have one last participant who is setting up a PayPal account and then we'll be all set.

I'm really thinking Mr. and Mrs. Hockey.  It's nice to recognize people while they're able to know about it.  Well, Mr. Hockey, but he'll get a warm fuzzy for Mrs. Hockey.

We can do Tatar's father next season, or split it if we have someone else in mind.  Besides, I'd have to offer contact information for Tatar, and I don't know about anybody else, but I'm not privy to where he lives.

Let's get this back onto the topic of the series and not the fanbase, please.  These actions have nothing to do with hockey and are political discussion territory.

It would be like Christmas in April!

I think it's pretty safe to say NY's bandwagon is pretty much groaning under the weight of all the Wings fans that jumped on it last night.




#2517963 NHL lacks class.

Posted by vladdy16 on 28 April 2014 - 11:17 AM

"Class" is way overused.  I think what people really mean is respect - you can respect the guy you're trying to make a permanent part of the boards by making a clean, hard hit and not trying to take his head off, or not attempting to render him unable to reproduce.  Mr. Hockey was the toughest SOB of his time, but he had respect for the game and those that played it.    I think that's the big thing that's lacking now.  The retirement of players like Sakic and Yzerman has leeched that element from the game.

Well, Hockeytown sure didn't waste any time in coming up with this one.  Couldn't give us a few hours to adjust, could you?  :P

 

Still on the Habs bandwagon regardless.

You guys are awesome, but it's depressing none the less.  Yeah, I know, I know, we weren't going to take the series, but I really thought it would be a better series.

Next year my pledge will be different so I owe something, but I'll throw a little something into the hat anyway just out of gratitude for 23 straight years.

#2516463 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Posted by vladdy16 on 26 April 2014 - 02:53 PM

 

Doesn't matter if someone is better.  That's not why teams make coaching changes.

 

The Ducks fired Babcock and won the Cup a few years later.  Does that mean he was a bad coach?  No.  But sometimes you have to make a change to freshen things up.  This team needs some kind of a change in its philosophy.  It won't just come with getting rid of old players (they're all scratched anyway) and calling up more kids from GR.  Something more is needed in the attitude of the organization.  The complacency and lack of accountability is not a good thing.

The Ducks didn't fire Babcock - he declined their offer to renew his contract to come here.

NHL Rhino has lost their login, so they have asked me to post their pledge on their behalf.

 

$1 for each goal from the following three players:

Franzen

Datsyuk

Tatar




#2509661 ECQF - Series B - Tampa Bay versus Montreal

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 06:17 PM

I think I just have to give the French language equal time.. crap, it's supposed to be on top though.

 

EDIT! EDIT! EDIT!  No one will know.

No dog in this fight other than support for Stevie Y.

 

Go Bolts! Go Lightning!

 

Allez les boulons! Aller Lightning! (required by Canadian law)

If you're following Canadian law, then aren't you also required to root for the Canadian team?  I don't think even the Stevie Y defense will help you in a Quebec court.

The amount doesn't matter - every little bit helps and you'd be surprised how quickly all our donations together add up.  You'd also be surprised at how much more fun it makes the games.

 

Thanks so much to those of you who donate and those who support us, the Wings and Children's Hospital in spirit.




#2509578 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Firmly on #Lumbus bandwagon for this one as well.  

 

GO JACKETS

 

 

Yes, my unseen internet princess, I love your pretty face as I imagine it to look. ;)

 

But yeah - #Lumbus

Even if it wasn't real, the fact that I used it makes it real.

:P
