#1936608 Evander Kane vs Matt Cooke

Moment of zen.

I think this might be the first time I've ever agreed with Carman. :lol:

Famous last words.

and still he got scratched versus philly? <_<

I still can't figure out why Babcock did that. It definitely contributed to the loss.

I just think he's an idiot for even bringing up Crosby or Kane in the discussion.

#1932827 And The Messier Award Nominees for 2009-10 are..

Posted by edicius on 05 April 2010 - 02:05 PM

It shouldn't be called the Messier award. Yzerman award.

Amen to that. Messier isn't half the leader Yzerman was.

#1929684 Wings need a change of jersey

Personally, I think the whole team name needs an overhaul. Maybe something more in the vein of wildlife. Detroit Sea Otters? Detroit Walruses? Aquatic wildlife is all the rage these days in the NHL.

#1927053 Winter Classic 2011

Posted by edicius on 28 March 2010 - 10:32 AM

Added: I also want to say the winter classic is not just a money scheme... It is to help to get the league exposure and the teams exposure.... They just screwed that by adding a team that was already there and already has a big fan base.... They are trying to promote hockey in te United States (this is why they won't allow Canadian teams) and this is the perfect time to display your american team USA talent by having a guy like Parise in the winter classic... But once again bettman drops the ball.... If you want to promote this sport to the United states... Stop shovig the kid that stole our gold medal down our throat...

Rangers vs. Devils, Yankee Stadium.

Minnesota vs. Colorado? I'd watch in a heartbeat. And I'm not particularly a fan of either of those teams. Pittsburgh vs. Washington? Nuh uh. And I'm an Ovie fan. But if Bettman does that, it's just more Pittsburgh bias showing through.

#1926188 3/27 OOT Gameday

Unbelievable disallowed goal in the Pens Flyers game involving Leino. Can't even begin to describe. Wow NHL, just wow.

And let me guess...it benefited the Penguins once again.

#1922619 3/22 GDT: Penguins 1 at Red Wings 3

Posted by edicius on 22 March 2010 - 09:23 PM

Come now Gordie-- Yzerman is renown for his class. Crosby's had a spotted history at best when it comes to class. Whining, skipping Stanley Cup handshakes, dismissive comments about other players, etc. He's a great player, sure, but comparing him to Yzerman is laughable.

And additionally, Yzerman was never the face of the league - Crosby is.

It's an entirely different animal when Crosby throws a hissy fit at the end of the game than if, say, Maltby did. It would be like Tiger Woods throwing a temper tantrum after missing a putt versus Padraig Harrington doing the same.

You want to see Kronwall blatantly leave his feet and elbow Crosby when he's not expecting it?

That's what Kronwall means...right?

Yeah...you just lost any credibility you might have had. :rolleyes:

"Kronwalled" (or its variation "Kronwall'd") is derived from his hit on Martin Havlat in the playoffs last season. A clean hit in which his feet did not leave the ice until after the hit. Has Kronwall left the ice on some of his hits? Yes, I won't deny that. But on the majority of his big hits? Clean as a whistle.

Crosby is such a cheap little cry baby. He cross-checked the crap out of Zetterberg for no reason other than the game was over and he wouldn't receive a meaningful penalty. Zetterberg wasn't even fighting back... I have no clue why Crosby would hack away on him like that.

Intent to injure?

NO ONE took a run at Crosby?


I'm disappointed in you, Boston.

#1918336 Eight games for Wisniewski

Posted by edicius on 18 March 2010 - 06:05 PM

Of course, if Wiz played on the Pens, this thread would be entitled, "No suspension for Wisniewski". I'm 100% certain of that.

#1915703 When Does Osgood Start?

Posted by edicius on 14 March 2010 - 12:58 PM

As much as I like Osgood, I have to think that Babcock goes with Howard as the #1 the rest of the way, including - if we make them - the playoffs. If Jimmy falters at that point, we have a Stanley Cup winning goaltender to fall back on. I don't foresee Ozzie getting any more than perhaps two more starts this season. He'll have to wait until next season to get his 400 wins.

Quenneville would be stupid to play Huet over Niemi in the playoffs, seeing as Huet doesn't have playoff success in the first place - how much worse could Niemi be, even as an unknown postseason quantity? But this is Joel Quenneville we're talking about, so anything could happen with them.
