#2376852 3/31 GDT: Blackhawks 7 Red Wings 1

Had to turn off the game (can't remember the last time I did that). Hope the Wings are able to remove their collective heads from their collective asses. :angry:

Ah, nice to see that POS Hudler dive...

#2367857 Why shootouts may be a bad thing

Posted by thegerkin on 11 March 2013 - 09:01 PM




The Kemptville 73′s & Ottawa Jr. Senators needed 48 shootout attempts before the game winner on the 49th try. That's just messed up. :D

#2365905 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

It should be 100% the athlete's choice. Look at Kronwall. He has a visor, but it couldn't be pushed up much higher. Players choice.

Bring back Gary Thorne and Bill "Hands of Cement" Clemente!!!

It appeared to me that both players virtually threw off the gloves at the same time. A fight's going to happen and TooToo got there first (just ask Dorsett's face) :)

Poor Patty Eaves. He needs a goal to boost the confidence. Glad he's getting more ice time (Yes I know the ice time is a result of the injuries). GO PATTY!!

With that photo, he's onside. Think about it from a defensemen's point of view. Kronner at the point with the puck for example. He's still onside.

#2349074 Zetterberg's Great But...

Posted by thegerkin on 30 January 2013 - 04:48 AM

Zetterberg is grittier and has a shoot first mentality. Datsyuk has the best hands in the game. He's also the best passer in the league. I don't know if it's fair to compare them, they compliment each other and that makes them both great.

Umm have you watched these games?


Each and every game so far. Yes, they are terribly rusty/out of sync, but everyone is already calling for every player's head to roll. It's a short season, but we're only 1-2 (if we don't win tonight). Is there a reason to worry? Not yet. And yes, I realize it's a shortened season, but you have to give them a handful of games to hopefully start to gel.

Thanks Homer! Another of the old core gone (Malts, Drapes, Mac, Ozzie) :(
