#2420413 Best Songs That Pump You Up at the Rink

Posted by e_prime on 17 June 2013 - 09:52 PM

It's certainly not that horrible Fall Out Boy song they were playing during the time out a few minutes ago.

#2420406 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by e_prime on 17 June 2013 - 09:51 PM

Is this the part where Chicago "acts out" because they're so "frustrated"?

Nope.  It's the part where they get "shut out" because they got "shut down."

#2420372 Datsyuk agrees to 3-year extension, $22.5m total, $7.5m/year

Posted by e_prime on 17 June 2013 - 09:14 PM

Neither Malkin nor Streit have signed a deal.  They have agreed in principal to an extension... which is probably what Datsyuk and the Wings will announce tomorrow.

Crawww-fooord!!  Crawww-fooord!

#2420170 3 1sts for 1st Overall?

Posted by e_prime on 16 June 2013 - 12:16 PM

Feaster is a mong.


Remember that little ordeal that happened not too long ago with him?


Ryan O'Reilly to be exact.

...and who does O'Reilly play for.  Oh. Right. The 'lanche.  Nice way to shoot yourself in the foot for future dealings with Colorado. 


No wonder why the Flames are talking to Shanny about an executive position.  Feaster out.  Shanny in.

#2417432 ECF - (4) Boston Bruins vs. (1) Pittsburgh Penguins

Sutter gets the Pens on the board... and back comes Marchand.

#2406955 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by e_prime on 18 May 2013 - 03:20 PM

I'm in agreement with those that look at players like Kindl and Ericsson... (prime LGW whipping boys for the last few years) ...and say to those harping on Smith. PATIENCE!!

Now Q's a completely different story. LOL.

#2399071 ECQF - (8) NY Islanders vs. (1) Penguins

Wait?  Four games have been played and the series will go at least two more?


Let's Go Islanders!

#2397237 2 Games for Abby, 0 for Weber?...We Deserve Answers

Posted by e_prime on 06 May 2013 - 08:33 AM

All y'all need to stop living in the past with demanding retribution/explanation/etc. for the Weber hit.

Yes, it was a bad non-call, non-suspension, Shannywithhisheadinhisass kind of situation.

...and I love PainTrain as much as the next guy, but he gone.  He ain't coming back.


I'm pissed at Abby.  He's been playing well, been a good presence on the ice and then crosses the line and does something REALLY unnecessary.

Abby's hit was questionable and he compounded the issue by both exploding upwards into the hit (and in turn leaving his feet during impact) and extending his arms.  Keep your s*** in tight and rock the body, you got yourself a clean hit...




More than anything else:

I want a more coherent explanation of the Gryba on Eller hit. It's topical.  It's current. 

It's going to be a video comparison we see over and over and over moving forward.  ...and I still think it's clean as a bar of Irish Spring.


The video shown in the Shanaban explanation shows that initial point of contact is the chest and shoulder area. To me, it's clear. Impact is chest/sternum, glancing head, glancing right shoulder. It's unfortunate that hitting the ice opened up Eller's precious face, but c'mon Shanny this is grasping...

You say Eller is eligible to be hit, but then quantify it with nonsense!! 

I don't even understand what "taking the wrong route" means or "enough of a full body check." 

He doesn't explode upwards.  He doesn't extend a shoulder, elbow, or fore-arm. 

Get out your protactor, t-squares, and level to measure the angle of body checks folks...  This is what it's come to.

Good work Z.  Kill some time.


hrm. shot wide by cleary... you don't say.

#2389096 4/24 GDT: Kings 1 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by e_prime on 24 April 2013 - 08:49 PM

I want the Wings to get that 3rd goal.  They are 16-0-2 when they score 3 or more goals this season.

Believe that's 17-0-2 since last game, no?  ;)

#2387667 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

Posted by e_prime on 22 April 2013 - 09:51 AM

I'm pretty sure we all have our opinions about what this team is made of, who are the stand-outs, who are the cast-offs.


This week will show the true make-up of this team. 


Play hard -- every game, every shift. Win and you're in.


Take a shift off, or a game for granted, and you've settled for allowing other teams to determine your playoff destiny.


Hoping it's the former and not the latter.

#2385077 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by e_prime on 15 April 2013 - 12:53 PM

I understand bert's desire to play again. but he really needs to think about his long term quality of life. No Hockey game is worth not being able to walk, play with your kids etc... he has already had 2 major back surguries, and if he isn't real carefull could have a 3rd. I would like to see bert healthy. Period. i don't care if he ever plays again. he has had a long and successful career. No need to risk his life or spend the rest of it wheel chair bound.

The man wants to play, man.  Let the man play!

#2385075 Tambelinni fired, MacTavish new Oiler GM...Scott Howson new Sr VP

Posted by e_prime on 15 April 2013 - 12:52 PM

Sather isn't the best GM, but I wouldn't put him in the same boat as snow or howson. Guy has an eye for talent and drafts really well


Agreed.  The Rangers draft well, they are just prone to impatience and readily blow up their team for the piece that they think will get them over.


See: The Rick Nash trade

#2384937 GDT 4/15: Red Wings 3 @ Predators 0

Posted by e_prime on 14 April 2013 - 09:08 PM

So Nashville isn't the biggest offensive threat, but Jimmy had a great first period with thirteen saves in that first period.  We bear down and make a good game of it.  Z shows what he's made of... so does Howard.  Damn fine result in a game we needed to win.
