#2019547 Is it too soon to worry about another NHL lockout?

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 26 July 2010 - 09:03 PM

Reading the article again, it just makes me more worried.


#2019400 Antti Niemi files for arbitration

Their "core" is the most solid "core" of all "cores" in the league. :ph34r:

yes


Of course not. Their team chemistry is perfectly intact, and the players they lost were replaced adequately, and the Hawks will be just as dangerous if not better this season.

:rolleyes:


#2019361 Watch what you eat at Detroit Area Pro Sporting Events

I've worked many, many years in food service. This is minor. Just saying.



Care to share any horror stories that will help us feel better about this?

#2018059 Hawks trade Reasoner to Panthers for Jeff Taffe

I guess that ruins his expressed excitement over going to the Cup winning team.

#2017939 Wings should sign Paul Kariya

I wouldn't be opposed at the right price.


#2017896 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 21 July 2010 - 10:16 PM

Osgood was the Wings' best player until he went out with the flu in like November. After that, he played like 5 games. Howard was playing great, but one major reason the Wings lost in the playoffs is because Howie was so tired. If Babs had played Ozzie more, Howie wouldn't have been as tired, so if he DID falter, Babs would have been more comfortable going to Ozzie, who would have been in game shape. Babs is a good coach, but he mismanaged his goalies last year.


Starting Howard 20+ games in a row was for sure a mistake.


#2017748 NHL's Most Unbreakable Records

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 21 July 2010 - 02:56 PM

Two goals by one player in a playoff game 5 seconds apart?

And we all know who that was ;)

N.B. it may be a regular season record too, but I'm too lazy to check.


It was indeed the regular season, but I dare someone to beat that.

#2017549 NHL Rejects Kovalchuk's Contract

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 20 July 2010 - 09:33 PM

Screw the cap and revenue sharing!

Why the hell should the stronger teams like the Wings,Leafs,Habs,Rangers ect. be expected to pay for these hopeless markets like Phoenix and Atlanta? It's not our fault they can't form a decent fanbase.

The league has become watered down with 30 teams. Guys who would have never made the NHL in late 80s/early 90s are now becoming NHL regulars. It's no wonder the quality of the game has suffered. I would not be against eliminating a few teams and going back to a 24 team format.

:thumbup:


#2017420 Hockey Card Collectors

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 20 July 2010 - 05:49 PM

I once had a stack of hockey cards. I came across a Claude Lemieux Avs card. I tore it the hell up.


#2016775 Hawkeytown? ...barf.

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 19 July 2010 - 12:36 PM

I wonder what Hawk fans are thinking.



LULZ WERE TEH BEST N DETROIT SUCKZ WHAT'S A CELERY CAP HEY WHERE'D EVERYBODY GO

Not saying they are trying to be like Detroit, though the Bowman's obviously brought their fondness for Swedes over to Chicago.

I disagree with you on the cup thing. The Hawks are stacked with prospects and the core is set. While this upcoming season very well could be rough. In 2-3 years when these guys all come up it will be fun. There's a lot of top 4 defense and top 6 forward prsospects in the pipeline, and all of them will only need to fill bottom pair or 3rd or 4th line roles. The Hawks will be ridiculous in a few years IMO.


Ridiculous like they were a few years ago?
