#2104989 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

I just read the best idea for Nabby yet. Tell Snow you're ready to play. Show up, play a period or so, then fake an injury. It's been working for DiPietro for years now.

Then he can go where he wants when the season is over, and there's nothing the Isles can do about it.

It just doesn't make sense. All the Isles are going to do is hurt themselves. Say Nabby comes in, plays 30 games, and wins 20-25 of them. The Isles still don't make the playoffs, and their place in the draft order just went way down. Nabby walks at the end, and they can't lure another NHL caliber goalie because of how they treat players. They have a mid-round draft pick instead of a top 3.

How exactly does this help them?

Wow..Nabby is gonna get hosed then. Yikes. I can see Snow petitioning for "tolling" the contract. If what Outsider says is true, and they don't care, that seems right up their alley. Wasting a roster spot 2 years in a row.

Seems like a better use of Snow's time would be to try and improve things so that they can attract some free agents, rather than continually demonstrating that the Islanders are going to treat you like livestock if you sign there, and even if you don't.

Dude, noone wants to go to the Isles. Burnside is talking out of his butt.

OTT! #1 star for the Wings so far. :D

#2068992 Pronger falls victim to "Avery Rule"

Posted by drwscc on 26 November 2010 - 07:55 PM

Pronger was totally directing traffic on that, he didn't even look at where Kipper was. Kipper seems like more of a ****** on this than Pronger does.

#2060844 All-Star Game format change being considered

Posted by drwscc on 10 November 2010 - 11:35 AM

I liked the idea that several folks have brought up in the comments. Have all the selected players throw their sticks in a pile, and either have the captains take turns picking a stick, or just have like Bettman go to the pile and throw them either way. Would be a cool way to pick the teams, getting back to the shinny roots.

Wow...so many people on the ledge because the team decided not to play tonight. Ozzie sucks, run Stuart out on a rail, someone assassinate Hudler. Geeze.

It's game 4 of the reg season. Lighten the F up, or get a new hobby. They're not going to go 82-0-0 no matter how much you want them to.

UFC is fixed. Wish UFC hadn't bought Pride to shut it down, and avoid competition.

#2000633 Kane and Byfuglien joke around

Yay vigilante justice. What Kane did is ok because the old man he beat up is a scumbag too.

#1997801 Adam Burish: Chris Pronger Is The Biggest Idiot In The League

Posted by drwscc on 10 June 2010 - 07:06 PM

I like the fact that Burrish was scratched for like the last 3 games in the series, yet he comes out all dressed up in "his hockey suit" like he was actually part of the win. What a tool bag. At least Pronger played.

#1993658 Bettman

Posted by drwscc on 03 June 2010 - 08:38 AM

Bettman continues to prove that he's a weasel, plain and simple. I don't care if the owners (supposedly) love him - he's bad for the sport.

Because he does what the owners tell him to? That doesn't make a lot of sense. What you are in essence saying is that the owners are bad for the sport, because Gary doesn't fart without the approval of the BOG.

I agree, the dude is a slimy ******, but he doesn't really have any power, and is basically a puppet.

I think the Winter Classic curse is stronger, so the Flyers are doomed. This makes me sad.
