#2528120 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by vladdy16 on 01 July 2014 - 01:20 PM

Calgary got Jonas Hiller, Dallas got Spezza, Detroit gets a rock.

Do you have a source to support your claim of Detroit actually acquiring said rock?




#2527645 Jason Spezza traded to Stars for 3 prospects, 2nd-rd pick

I'm a huge Holland supporter and I think he is still doing a great job and is STILL one of the best GMs in the league. But look at what Nill is doing in Dallas. It's crazy how quick he is turning that team around. I strongly believe they will be a serious contender within a few years. Part of me wished he took over as GM of the Wings and Holland took on another role. Again, I love Holland, so please don't turn this into another Holland bash fest. Nill just gets s*** done.

I agree and I have nothing but love for Jim Nill, but he also had a lot more money to work with and nowhere to go but up really.  I'm withholding judgment for the next couple of seasons.

Hey, I'm just thrilled they have the lower bowl paying attention to the game instead of their phones.




#2522819 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Posted by vladdy16 on 04 June 2014 - 08:32 PM

Seriously, Kings fans?  Chanting "Lundquist" after your second goal?  Did you forget Quick was scored on twice first?




#2522816 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Posted by vladdy16 on 04 June 2014 - 08:25 PM

I hope we don't get too used to that.  :cheesy:

 

You are correct, sir.

 

Dear hockey gods:

When I said I enjoyed watching a SCF game that I didn't have a vested interest in, that was not a suggestion that this happen on a regular basis.  The Wings can make the finals (and win) every single year and I will be ever so much more happy.  Please accept my offering of a He Who Shall Not Be Named (but you know who) sacrifice to appease you.




#2522807 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

I'm really liking not having a vested interest in the game.  It's nice being able to just appreciate the game and not ***** about the refs.

Beautiful rendition The Star Bangle Banner!

Best I've heard in a long time.




#2522547 TSN POY: Hertl vs Gustav Nyquist

Posted by vladdy16 on 02 June 2014 - 05:02 PM

I think we shouldn't vote at all if it comes down to two Wings.   :lol:

I don't know if I want Lundquist to hoist the Cup or give it to LA just for taking out the Hawks.  Honestly, I'm good either way.




#2521994 ECF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (4) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by vladdy16 on 28 May 2014 - 05:26 PM

The Habs are looking to join Vancouver and San Jose in shenanigans.  I'm easing off the bandwagon.




#2521882 Inventor looks to drastically shorten ice resurfacing time

Posted by vladdy16 on 27 May 2014 - 06:39 PM

Paul Van Eijl of Minnesota has invented a machine that will resurface the ice in approximately a minute, which will mean no more Zambonis and no more Al.  

I understand progress, but where do we draw the line of putting people out of jobs?  And when do we progress versus protecting the history of the game?

BTW, this won't shorten intermissions; the CBA states it has to be 18 minutes.  This leaves that much more time for Musical Chairs at center ice.  Oh, yay.   :annoyed: 




#2521871 J-S Giguere to announce retirement

Posted by vladdy16 on 27 May 2014 - 01:14 PM

I still wake up sweating in the middle of the night hearing "SAVE by Giguere!"




#2520517 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 May 2014 - 10:05 PM

Me either, but the west team will beat boston. If sj makes it, boston is going down.

And Boston fans are now pissed because they're saying whoever comes out of the East will coast to the Cup.  :lol:
