#2044697 Kirk Maltby to announce he is retiring

Posted by Travis on 12 October 2010 - 10:59 AM

I was really looking forward to what he could bring to the Griffins, but I can understand. He has a young daughter and a family that he probably didn't want to live 3 hours from all year long.

Thanks for the years, Malts.

Ovechkin. Haha.


51 in 10, not 51 in 1.

GREAT news. Clicked 'Like' so hard on Facebook that I broke my computer desk.

Heavyweight bout there. More contact than you see in a lot of fights.

#2033958 Babcock to Change Defense Pairings

Posted by Travis on 17 September 2010 - 12:12 PM

Priming Kronner to be the #1 of the future. I've always been partial to the idea of having a puck-moving, offensive defenseman with a more hard-nosed one.

Am I just an idiot? I get no photos.


#2025431 Your Favorite Player on Each Team?

Posted by Travis on 12 August 2010 - 07:51 AM

Let's see if I can do this without looking up the rosters for other teams.

Bruins - Marc Savard
Sabres - Ryan Miller
Canadiens - Tom Pyatt
Senators - Daniel Alfredsson
Leafs - Brett Lebda (For not being a Wing)

Devils - Zach Parise
Isles - John Tavares
Rangers - Chris Drury
Flyers - Daniel Brierre
Penguins - Paul Martin

Thrashers - Ben Eager
Hurricanes - Erik Cole
Panthers - Tomas Vokoun
Lightning - Martin St. Louis
Capitals - Alex Ovechkin

Flames - Jarome Ignila
Avalanche - Paul Stastny
Oilers - Taylor Hall (?)
Wild - John Madden
Canucks - Ryan Kesler

Blackhawks - Marian Hossa
Blue Jackets - Rick Nash
Red Wings - Niklas Kronwall
Predators - Matthew Lombardi
Blues - Jaroslav Halak

Ducks - Bobby Ryan
Stars - Stephane Robidas
Kings - Ryan Smyth
Coyotes - Lee Stempniak
Sharks - Joe Pavelski

I had to check some rosters, but I stand by (almost) all my choices. I've got a lot of new faces on my list. One part new places, one part liking them on their old teams.


#2013861 How are you dealing with the off-season?

Though, I'd love to be playing some pick-up street hockey.


#2013396 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Travis on 09 July 2010 - 10:41 PM

At first, my sentiments were all for Modano joining the Wings. If he does eventually sign, then I'll embrace it because I love the Wings that much; but I'm completely over the whole idea at this point.

The Wild and Sharks made contact with him today and now he's entertaining the idea of going to either team and will be visiting with them? Actually reading in print that his presence would essentially result in Abdelkader spending another year in Grand Rapids sort of cements the fact that I'd rather have a 3rd line of Hudler / Abdelkader / Cleary than one with Modano at center.


#2012229 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by Travis on 07 July 2010 - 07:29 PM

never understood the hatred here for lebda. a solid d-man with speed. obviously 1.45M would've been too steep for the wings so good for him getting that deal, but you guys are s***ting on him like he was a scrub. am i the only one that actually liked this guy (a little)?


I think you might be. To call him solid is an overstatement, for sure. My gripes started initially with his giveaways, namely a costly one in 2007. The more I paid attention to him, the more I noticed his lack of.. everything. Fast, true, but that doesn't earn you a roster spot when it's your only upside.


#2011509 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Travis on 06 July 2010 - 09:10 PM

Don't feel too bad... I spaced out and suggested Delvecchio's #10.


I think the implication was that he was asking whether or not adding the '0' would make it different than just plain 9.


#2009458 Free Agency Thread

Posted by Travis on 02 July 2010 - 08:27 PM

I'm lost...why would the Flyers trade Gagne?


So they can sign more goalies. :P


#1998152 July 1st...

Posted by Travis on 11 June 2010 - 10:58 AM

I'm definitely excited for July 1.

- Some goalies who should be on the block: Thomas, one of Price/Halak, Harding, Huet


I know that the aforementioned goalies will be on the block, but who is going to take them? Thomas, Price, and Huet are all over-priced. I just can't see them actually getting moved based on what they're getting paid for how they've performed lately. Having said that, I guess a change of scenery can be nice (see: some Finnish dude) and there are always GM's out there who are ready to make stupid moves.


#1996579 The Curse of Marian Hossa

Posted by Travis on 09 June 2010 - 07:38 AM

I want the Hawks to win pretty much solely for Hossa. In all honesty, I think that the Flyers are the favorites for tonight's game. They're a different beast at the Wachovia.
