#2524044 Shawn Thornton will not be returning to the Bruins

Posted by e_prime on 16 June 2014 - 03:48 PM

Get him add Gazdic to the mix and the softish Wings are finally a thing of the past

:lol:  As if.  (...not that I don't think we're softish)

 

Honestly, both of those guys would drag down the speed and energy of our fourth line.

Would rather:  Miller -  Helm - Abby than  Miller - Helm - Gazdic or Thorton

Holland's M.O. is also to let players over-ripen and earn their spot on the team at training camp.

Who said he's jumping directly into the NHL?

All these guys are going to have to make the team through camp, you know that!!

So, don't get your knickers in a bunch ...and what harm is there in restocking our forward prospects? 

I mean you were all crying about Jarnkrok being traded, here's KH restocking the cupboards.

 

Sekac is listed at  6'2" 174lbs.

 

For reference:

 

Calle Jarnkrok - 22 y/o

Height: 6' 0" (1.83 m)

Weight: 188 lbs (85 kg)
 
So this guy, Sekac, needs to put on a few pounds. Big whoop. What Euro coming over the league doesn't need to?
 
He's also two inches taller than Jarnkrok.  So... ultimately bigger? 

Y'all are still mad only because you can't get the coolest name in hockey on a Wings jersey, right?




#2523792 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

I know Williams is the feel good story, and Doughty would have been the "he's probably the best player in the world at his position" story, but Gaborik deserved the Conn Smythe.  He was something else in these playoffs. 

You can't give the Conn Smythe to a trade deadline acquisition!  That would just drive future prices through the roof!   ;)  :lol:

...Richards?  ...Brad Richards?

 

Have you watched any Rangers games lately?




#2523557 Trading up?

Posted by e_prime on 11 June 2014 - 10:05 PM

According to media reports and rumor sites, Tallon has said that Florida has received exactly ONE worthwhile offer for the 1st round pick.  I'm certain it wasn't from Kenny Holland.

 

Florida sh(ou)ld keep it and w(ou)ld benefit themselves greatly by taking Ekblad.

Problem with Quincey is they don't put him where he belongs. On the third pairing.

I'd put kronwall with smith or dekeyser(smith preferably) then the other with Ericsson and that's a good top four.

Quincey in the third doesn't bother me it's just him with dekeyser or smith that hurts.

I know you meant to say "on the third"  ...but Quincey IN THE THIRD is EXACTLY when he bothers me. 

Timely gaffes guaranteed.




#2520544 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by e_prime on 14 May 2014 - 10:47 PM

Recap goes something like this:

 

Reporter: "Weisse says you had something to say to him in the handshake line..."

 

"That stays on the ice, if he wants to be a baby and make it public that's his business...."

 

Reporter: "The Canadiens have said that there has been some lack of respect..."

 

"Lack of respect?  What?  A goal celebration?"  "I don't know what to say about that."  "I don't have any comment about that."

*befuddled*

"I don't have anything to say about that."

---

So, he has plenty to say in the handshake line... the freaking handshake line!!!   ...to a player that tossed everything that he had to say/give right back in his face, but has nothing to say afterwords.  Loves to dish it out, but can't take it.

So how are we acquiring a roster like this? Who do you give up for Burns and Wheeler??

 

 

 

I'm guessing he sent Weiss and Tatar to the Jets for Wheeler, plus Nyquist and Miller to the Sharks for Burns. (based solely on who he left out of his lineup)

 

Wait.  You guys are worried about pieces traded away and acquisitions, but you fail to see who your third line center is...   really?  REALLY?  Really?

This is true but you shouldn't take it so seriously. He wouldn't be the first POS to get his name on the cup. Hell, he had plenty of company just in 2011.

Not everyone can be a good sportsman.  There are such things as sore losers.

 

"Fatso wouldn't even shake my hand."

 

That being said, he's a cheap-shot artiste who doesn't need to be.

I wish he weren't such a slimy PoS and would just "man up" in defeat the way he does on the ice when he's feelin' top o' the world.

 

EDIT: Just saw Lucic's post-game, "no comment" nonsense. 

Can "give it" but can't "take it." What a friggin' baby he is. 

Such a sore sore sore loser.

Wooooooooooooo! (Knife Edge Chop).

 

Styling and Profiling!  (Then slaps on a figure four for good measure.)




#2512980 WCQF - Series G - Anaheim versus Dallas

Posted by e_prime on 21 April 2014 - 09:47 PM

Pretty damn classy by Dallas fans giving encouragement to Robidas (long-time Dallas player) who came off the ice with an injury. 




#2512966 Lines/Lineup changes for Game 3 (Home game 1)?

Posted by e_prime on 21 April 2014 - 08:38 PM

I don't think you change a damn thing.  I think Babcock needs to remind the boys that Game 1 went our way and if we play our game,  Game 3 could go the same way.  Don't rock the boat.  Don't make costly mistakes. Play Game 1 again.




#2512941 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Posted by e_prime on 21 April 2014 - 06:15 PM

BJs strike first at 1:38 of the 1st period.  2nd shot on goal.

 

 

Que the Fleury meltdown.  Jack Johnson scores.




#2512760 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Posted by e_prime on 20 April 2014 - 08:03 PM

Let us pause for a second. Bruins fans -- not all, but some -- booed Jesus. ON EASTER. Not cool, Boston. If you lose this series, you can probably point to the negative karma accrued by booing the Christ on his big day. (Additionally, you no longer get to make fun of Philadelphia for booing Santa.)




#2511646 Lucic Spearing DeKeyser

Posted by e_prime on 19 April 2014 - 09:46 PM

 

That's ok...we'll give Boychuk the green light to take nail your 2 starts...oh wait...Z's out so we'll nail Dat's and Nyquist. You'll see what it's like to be the Eastern Conference version of the Nashville Preds...1st round bounce.

Green light?   Really.  Isn't already open season for cheap shots on guys that aren't looking.

 

Anyway, I thought your best players didn't play game one because of the sniffles.  We've got legit injuries over here, pal.

 

Also, as far as I can recall... yeah, pretty sure Detroit has won the President's Trophy over the years... 23 years of playoffs (skin of teeth or other-wise, through adversity, injury, etc. or otherwise) ...teams that win the President's Trophy... often go out early.   So enjoy that sentiment.

 

...and as far as chucking knuckles.  Yeah, big bruiser Lucic. Grand Champion of spot picking knuckle-chucking...  what did he do last night? 

Certainly didn't throw any bombs.  (Unless it was after a whistle or the game was over) 

More like cheap shots to a guy who isn't even looking.  Real Tough.  Real Classy.

 

GTFOH.
