#2598371 WCQF : (4) Nashville Predators vs. (5) Chicago Ham Hocks

Posted by vladdy16 on 22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM

Really,you hate the preds,because of what weber did to Z in 2012,That was 3 or 4 years ago,Time to let it go

That's adorable.

 

Oh, honey.  We never let things go.  We still hate the Ducks for making a Homer sandwich in 2007 and Pronger (who isn't even with them any more) making excuses that he's 6'6" and can't control where his elbows go.  "It's physics!"

We still hate the Penguins because Crosby didn't shake hands at the end when they won in 2009, and we still remember that they got away with 36 seconds of too many men on the ice to win that Cup.

Don't even get us started on the Turtle...

We remember everything.

Well, except for me.  I can never remember where I left the remote... or what I came in the room for... or.... what was I typing?

Hell, I haven't forgiven Ted Kennedy and Olympia's boards for injuring Gordie in 1950 and I wasn't even born then.




#2598258 Money On The Board!

Posted by vladdy16 on 22 April 2015 - 11:51 AM

 

I only ended up with $12 last year, so I got a little aggressive this year expecting a first round loss. I might be broke if the Wings make a run. I'm only 24 so money is something I exactly have alot of...

There's no law that says you can't adjust your pledge for the next round, or even this one if it gets out of hand.  We've had it happen before.  This is supposed to be fun AND charitable, not cause you to have your phone disconnected!

SB Nation is hit or miss for me, but this was a hit:

Connor McDavid Loses the Draft Lottery.

Dad lied.  Desire and hard work get you Edmonton.




#2595201 Post-GDT ECQF Game 1: Red Wings 3, Lightning 2 (DET leads, 1-0)

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 April 2015 - 11:28 AM

So this is what having your goaltender commit highway robbery feels like.  I could get used to this.

 

Bolts played a great game.  Do they have more to bring to the table?

Wings played a mediocre game.  We all know they can play so much better.  The question is will they?

 

Bolts meet or exceed our speed, which Detroit isn't used to.  Wings have to check, check, check, check, check.  It simply cannot be overstated.  Backcheck, forecheck, and everything in between.  They also need to start throwing some of those good open-ice hits Tampa was so free with.

Lead us to victory, YFMB !

Because I save him for must-win games.  We don't invoke YFMB lightly.  :)

 

Slowest.  Day.  Ever.

Really?  No sinkhole has swallowed up the arena?  No massive power outage?  No swine flu outbreak?




#2593524 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 April 2015 - 07:35 PM

 

So are they going to do that with every player or just a star even though I don't think he should get a game....

I have no frickin' clue what they're thinking.  Normally stars get the benefit of the doubt, Subban gets a game for an admittedly blatant and unnecessary slash, but not ejection worthy.  I really need to apply to be an NHL ref.  I can call a better game without my glasses.




#2593517 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 April 2015 - 07:33 PM

Yep, 5 and a game.  Total BS.




#2593513 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 April 2015 - 07:31 PM

Subban takes a slashing penalty, gets ejected (???), 5 on 3.  No way he should have been ejected.  Bad, bad call.

· DON'T incite flame wars by purposely baiting ("trolling") other members into an online flame war. Members caught doing so will be disciplined appropriately.

 

· DO post constructively. If you can't add anything meaningful to a discussion, don't bother.

This is a "Can't they both get eliminated" series for me.




#2592820 WCQF : (7) Winnipeg Jets vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 April 2015 - 08:36 AM

I'm not sure what it would take for me to root for the Ducks, but it would be spectacular and expensive, I know that.  Hopping on the Jets bandwagon for this one.




#2592734 Money On The Board!

Posted by vladdy16 on 12 April 2015 - 08:21 PM

$1 for each game won
$10 for each series win
$5 for every shutout
$5 for each game won by more than 3 goals

I'm down for whatever charity everyone wants, as long as it benefits the Detroit area.

What, no bunghole pledge?


Yes!  Thanks for doing this again.  Either charity is fine, although I tend to lean towards children's hospitals.  There is no wrong answer if the money is going towards a good cause.

 

I'm going with the hamster bet again.  And, again, I'll keep track in my sig because it would be impossible otherwise.

 

$1 for each goal scored by a Wing after whom I've named a hamster (must still play for the Wings, sorry Filppula).

An additional $1 if the above-mentioned goal scored is a GWG.

An additional $5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.

An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

 

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

 

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

 

Go Wings!

That hamster list is getting a little long.  You might have to switch it up soon.  :)
