#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.

Imagine if we'd had Mule in the lineup all season.

How have they looked tonight? :rolleyes:

Horrendous. Embarrassing.

Oh wait, I accidentally time-traveled to the 3rd period of the last game. We actually look okay. :P

#1913287 No suspension for Cooke

Posted by edicius on 10 March 2010 - 03:58 PM

Really? What team does Richards play for again? How many similar plays have you seen that resulted in suspensions?

Is Richards a repeat offender? Cooke is.

Derek Boogard recently got suspended for a knee-on-knee hit because he is - all together now - a repeat offender.

One could say that Richards got the benefit of the doubt because he's not a repeat offender. Matt Cooke, on the other hand, does this s*** all the time. Remember the suspension he got for his hit to the head of Anisimov? REPEAT. OFFENDER.

Cooke should have gotten at least five games, if not more.

"...weighs more than 150 lbs and took more than 12 hours to create."

...and all of 10 minutes for Keith Tkachuk to eat.

Yes, I'm still running with the Tkachunky jokes. :P

#1912075 Cooke hits Savard

Posted by edicius on 09 March 2010 - 06:29 PM

Why do I have the God awful feeling that Cooke is gonna get off scot free and the Bruins are gonna be without their star player for a lengthy amount of time? The way they're hemming and hawing tells me that he's gonna get by without even a slap on the wrist. Now if it had been Crysby or someone like that, they would have thrown the book at the person who hit him, but because it's "only" a Boston player, Cooke is gonna skate away laughing about it and nothing will happen.

Leaves an awful feeling in the pit of my stomach. :ranting:

That's what I'm anticipating too. What's disturbing is that he's a repeat offender with these intent-to-injure kind of plays, but - with the exception of one paltry 2 or 3 game suspension this season - he gets a free pass. Is it because he plays for the Penguins? Who knows? What IS known is that he deserves to get a very lengthy suspension here...and he'll likely get none because the league will show, once again, that it has no idea what the hell it's doing.

#1911887 Reward offered for return of Crosby's Olympic gear

Posted by edicius on 09 March 2010 - 12:16 PM

Just to get the record straight I'm not talking about everybody who posts in these threads or everybody who dislikes Crosby. As a matter of fact, every time I wander in to these threads and see a post by Edi it gives me a chuckle because they are funny no matter how much he dislikes the guy. There are some people however who just beat the Crosby attention issue to death.

*bows humbly* Just goes to show how boring my job gets most days. :lol:

#1911473 Wow... this forum feels... awkward

Posted by edicius on 08 March 2010 - 01:03 PM

I'm not sure if I should be surprised that I'm only a neutral +1.

Of course, I could always say that I'm chaotic neutral.

two words:

Voodoo Doll.

Two more words: Real Doll.

Oops, sorry. Channeled Bettman again for a second there. :P

Wait, that's not fair. Bettman shouldn't be eligible to collect the reward.

#1867646 Bettman says solving hits to the head will take time

Posted by edicius on 21 January 2010 - 03:30 PM

No, no, I think he was saying that solving all the problems caused when he was dropped on his head as a child will take time to fix. Head shots in the NHL? Pshaw. Who's worried? tongue.gif

#1847893 I hate shootouts

Posted by edicius on 29 December 2009 - 03:20 PM

I'm almost positive I read somewhere recently that Pittsburgh is 8-0 in shootouts this season. Lends a little credence to my theory that they play for the shootout.
