#2359236 Tootoo

Posted by thegerkin on 22 February 2013 - 12:36 AM

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) :)

#2357950 2/19 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Predators 4 (OT)

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.

Wow, at least there aren't any chicken-littles here... (and the 'hey, we're being realistic' excuse doesn't work)</p></blockquote>

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) :(

Z on a pass from Dats.

#2330805 Z basically says Bettman should be fired

Posted by thegerkin on 05 October 2012 - 06:54 PM

When classacts like Selanne, Toews, Boyle and now our next captain are fed up you know something has gone very wrong. Also the media has jumped on the fire Bettman wagon at some point the owners wont have a choice other than finally firing this 8 million waste of a human.

I found this quote from Toews:

"It's another disappointing but expected move from the league," Toews told the Chicago Tribune via text from Phoenix, where he is working with his personal trainer. "This seems to be our commissioner's bread and butter; it's almost like he is excited to take away hockey from the fans and the players just because he can."

The longer it lasts the nastier it's going to get...

I do feel like I'm missing a big name guy here.....

How did he pan out? :)

#2323318 Your Favorite Hits

Posted by thegerkin on 31 July 2012 - 09:50 PM

I know someone put a "Best Of" for Scott Stevens, but this hit in particular has always stood above the rest in my opinion.

Hell, Babs was coaching Kariya and even Rafalski gets a mention :)
