Howard actually broke Lidstrom's stick and is obviously the reason we lost.

Get a grip.

Sadly, ESPN really did run that picture with that quote underneath it.

Haha, not they didn't. Go here and take a look at the headline. Compare it to the image you posted. ESPN doesn't use quotes, or that font, and the font they do use isn't anti-aliased. If you give it enough of an eye, you'll see that it's definitely edited.

I didn't even need to Photoshop that.

That's because it's already been Photoshop-ed.

I'd like to add "sweet georgia brown they were moving it around"

I fail to see how that isn't actually relevant.

edit: After re-reading what you posted, I think you might have misheard him. He was alluding to the fact that you could play Sweet Georgia Brown as a soundtrack to the Wings passing game through the Sharks' zone, ala Harlem Globetrotters.

Go f*** yourself, Phoenix.

#1957002 1-16 Playoff Format

Posted by Travis on 25 April 2010 - 09:38 AM

I kind of like the novelty of having the champion from one conference face the champ from the other, but sometimes I feel us Westerners get screwed because I think our path is often tougher and were a bit more worn out once we get to the forth round.

I feel the same way, completely.

It's definitely more challenging to get out of the West, but I'm a Conference v. Conference kind of guy.

#1957000 Red Wings Nike Jersey Questions

Posted by Travis on 25 April 2010 - 09:36 AM

They're pretty big. I've got an Yzerman Nike XL (why I ever bought an XL, I don't know) and it's definitely even bigger than an XL. Not outrageously bigger, but I gave the jersey to my XL-wearing father and it's large on him, too.

I mean, look at how big it is on Stevie. The shoulder stitching is where a t-shirt sleeve would end, haha.

I couldn't resist. I had to make a signature or two out of these. :)

#1950509 Report: Hudler released from Moscow Dynamo

Posted by Travis on 19 April 2010 - 09:47 AM

Dwarfism, in medicine, is the condition of being undersized, or less than 127 cm (50 inches) in height. The term midget is usually applied to physically well-proportioned dwarfs.

Hudler is taller than 50 inches as 50 inches = 4'2 (50 /12 = 4 remainder 2 inches), therefore no he is not. (although I doubt he is the listed 5'9)

But as I said haterz gonna hate.

You are 6'2 yet have how many NHL, KHL, Czech Team goals do you have?

mmmm is height really what makes great hockey players?

Or is it the Bow Leggedness that was rumored long ago (not sure if you have ever heard the expression show me a bow legged french man and I will show you a hockey player.)

Either way I am still having a hard time correlating height to NHL skill level, as Chara is the tallest guy in the league but has no Hart trophies, and even gets beaten out yearly in an award designed specifically for him to compete against only people of his position, well if he is the tallest in the league than with out a doubt he must be the tallest D-man, surely he must be the best.

How much taller than Hudler is Crosby? Is that what makes the talent gap difference, the 2 inches (probably 3) is the reason why Crosby is so much greater than Hudler.

And guys like Theo Fluery have proven sizes matters for little more than an attribute in Hockey.

So I ask why does his size matter other than it gives you something to criticize. He takes a licking and keeps on ticking. How many times has he been lit up at center ice only to never miss a shift.

AH that's it! The fact that he is a midget and has different bone structure than the rest of us and that explains it, so you weren't hating. I had it all wrong you trying to show us all that being a midget was a bonus!

Silly me!

PS most of this is me being sarcastic you are just hating for the sake of hating.

#1950487 Bad Defensive Errors

Posted by Travis on 19 April 2010 - 09:26 AM

Maybe we should shuffle up the defense pairs but I don't know if that will help when all of the defenseman are playing so bad. I actually think Kronwall might be having the worst series out of all of them. There was that miscommunication b/w him and Howard that cost a goal earlier and then in game 3 his stupid cross ice pass in our own zone directly led to a turnover and goal plus he was lucky Howard saved the puck he kicked right at our net.

The botched hand off was Jimmy's fault in my opinion. He hurried it to an unsuspecting Kronwall, which he's done a number of times this series including to Lidstrom yesterday. It's obvious that Jimmy is feeling some pressure, as has been noted.

I haven't seen the hit, but I can guarantee that the likelihood of Ruttu diving is through the roof. Even so, Ruttu cries wolf so often that it definitely worked against him.
