#2052773 Adam Burish: Chris Pronger Is The Biggest Idiot In The League

Posted by Doc Holliday on 26 October 2010 - 07:43 AM

Pronger is a boss. Words cannot describe how much I'd rather have his contract on the Wing's rather than Rafalski's. I know it would have never happened, but a guy can dream.


Pronger and his drama filled, atomic elbowing, contract can stay the hell away from this team.


#2052562 Are hockey hits harder than football hits?

Posted by Datsyerberger on 25 October 2010 - 03:28 PM

In the end, this is sort of like asking if you would rather someone:

1. hit you a couple times a minute with a sledgehammer over the course of 10 minutes (typical football hits), or

2. continuously strike you with a roofer's hammer (normal sustained hockey hits, along the boards etc), and also drop an anvil on you once (lesser occuring open ice hockey hit) over the course of the same 10 minutes.

Either way, it's going to suck and do a lot of damage.

I sleep fine knowing you flip flop worse than a political figure running for office. You hated Ozzie in previous threads....That is the truth. that is what I am basing my opinion on.


I doubt the time spent on this sub-discussion is worth it for either of you.

I really hope Lilja gets booed. I just didn't like him taking a try out with the Sharks over the Wings, felt like he was holding a grudge for his poor contract choice.

This is a stupid statement :thumbdown: :rolleyes:


#2050315 10/21 GDT: Flames 2 at Red Wings 4

The JLA sounds like this game is being played at an indoor swimming pool.

Just a bunch of echoes.

+1. I actually laughed out loud.

If the Wings play like they can, and Ozzie can play decent in the nets, we'll spoil that banner raising.

#2037331 Who do and did you hate more?

Posted by Yak19 on 26 September 2010 - 09:15 PM

Ducks: Have an edge to them and have gritty players that make you mad but they play a manly game.

Pens: Piss me off cuz Crosby is the Favre of hockey in the eyes of broadcasters. Get the buttman treatment, franchise should be dead cuz the fans suck but Super Mario (who I respect very much) saved them, are still in Pitts. Bandwagon city, most players on the team ***** and moan as much as they can. Cooke is cheaper then Pronger and doesnt have 2% of his skill. Malkin is a nancy that needs to be smashed in the face by someone like Eaves. I like Jordan Staal and thats about it when it comes to the Pens.

I think that speaks for itself.

Ellis is a total ****** canoe.

Maybe he'd like to come up to MI and let all the unemployed auto workers beat the s*** out of him?


#2031137 Sharks sign Niemi

Posted by sharkfan20 on 05 September 2010 - 11:11 AM

Griess could also leave to a team where he'd get more playing time.


Greiss basically just asked to be traded.

and to the poster about wait yourf****** turn. It was Osgood and Conklin. Not Howard.

It was greiss's turn after Nabokov, Nabokov Left. This was greiss chance. He waited for 3 years for this chance, and DW basically signed two goalies. DW made it clear in a few years, its Alex Stalock's team. Alex Stalock is our goalie in the minors, that is probably our best goalie prospect.

And DW I don't think well trade Nitty. He usually doesn't usually do a sign and trade, if he does trade Nitty. I'll be surprised. I wouldn't be suprised if Greiss is traded before training camp. Or package him with Clowe for a top four d man at the deadline.

#2030609 Habs re-sign Carey Price

Posted by mindfly on 02 September 2010 - 04:23 PM

Carey Price of course, he will be a top3 goalie in the league in a few years.


#2030575 It's Official: Turco to Hawks

Posted by hooon on 02 September 2010 - 01:15 PM

I'm strangely confident that the voids will be filled. No the depth won't be the same. But at the same time, with so many of the Hawks good players being so young, it would be strange not to expect a little improvement out of Kane, Hjallmarsson, Bolland and Toews. Bolland might be the guy to jump out the most this year. He seemed poised to jump out last year, then missed half the season with his back injury. He never seemed to be back healthy until the playoffs started. And IMO he deserved the Conn Smythe as much as anyone.


Yeah, that's called stupidity.


#2030631 It's Official: Turco to Hawks

Posted by Sarava on 02 September 2010 - 05:59 PM

o.0 O'Rly?!?! Well I never call the Wings to win it because it is a jinx so I'll call it for you, Hawks with the repeat!
Be careful of what you say!!!

You see it here first folks, RWF13 put the hockey jinx on Hawkey-town, in fact I'm calling for the Hawks to win the cup for the next 47 years ;)


I don't know what this Hawkey-town that you speak of is...it has nothing to do with Chicago. But umm, thanks for playing.


#2030535 It's Official: Turco to Hawks

Posted by Sarava on 02 September 2010 - 06:39 AM

Don't think it was envy. More so amazement. 49 years is a long time. ;)
You have to admit before the recent cup what was there to talk about for 49 years?


Breaking the long drought? The Hawks did have some good runs at times. Unfortunately there was this team called the Edmonton Oilers that kind of ruined it for the good teams we had back in the 80s. And of course, running in to Mario Lemieuex in the 92 SCF was a bit rough.

Not speaking towards you on this hillbilly. But I can not wait to see how all the spindoctors on this forum handle it when they find out the Hawks are actually going to be really good again this year. I imagine the spindoctors will laugh it off initially saying the Hawks are just hot. Come around Decemeber or January though, it will be impossible to deny the truth as Wing fans stare up to first place and see Chicago sitting there once again.

The strength of the team (defense) is as good as last year, and very well could be better. Remember the Hawks have kept their best defensive forwards as well (Bolland, Toews & Hossa). The goaltending should be as good, if not better. No Huet for 40 games....and Turco's puckmoving style fits the fastest team in the NHL to a tee. Yeah, yeah. yeah...Turco has sucked against Detroit. I get that. I want to see that continue with him as a Hawk before I declare this as a big problem.

The question is how guys like Stalberg, Skille, Makarov, Dowell, Vishnevskiy, Lalonde, Pisani...how those guys will replace the 3rd and 4th liners (plus Sopel on D) that the Hawks lost. Sopel is terrible at even strength and only was an asset when he blocked shots on the PK. I think they will be fine replacing him and probably will find an overall improvement there.

I'm strangely confident that the voids will be filled. No the depth won't be the same. But at the same time, with so many of the Hawks good players being so young, it would be strange not to expect a little improvement out of Kane, Hjallmarsson, Bolland and Toews.
