#2618838 Voynov pleads "No Contest" to Domestic Violence Charge

Posted by number9 on 03 July 2015 - 08:43 AM

He won't serve 90-days... if he does, it'll be min. security, house arrest or half-way house type situation I'm sure.
 
The probation and counseling are appropriate.
Thing that is a head scratcher for me.  8 hours of community service?
 
How skipping the 90 days of meaningless jailtime and give him 2160 hours of community service (90 days x 24 hours) that has to be served at a battered women's shelter.


Agreed. His time would probably be better served helping his community than locked in a cage. However the justice system is often more based on vengeance than rehabilitation, as exhibited by some of the knee jerk reactions here.


#2616833 2015 Draft

I'm fairly certain he knows the difference, forum posting (especially via phone) lends to simple errors.
BULL ****.
Simple English is totally lost on some people. Use your effin head for once and try a little brain power,
 


Sentences don't end with commas.

All that supposed "brain power," and you can't even finish a sentence.

Glad you know what real watermelon laffy taffy is

Bring back the seeds!

Nice another there instead of THEIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At least he didn't add an unnecessary amount of exclamation points, those people have zero brain power.


#2614370 NBC Sports chairman wants NHL ban playoff beards

Because he put hipsters in quotations I read it as people with wax mustaches are not real hipsters. I guess they're wannabes.

Aren't they technically "don't wannabes"?


#2614221 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by Echolalia on 13 June 2015 - 03:47 PM

These threads pop up periodically, regarding either Fedorov, or Osgood, or Zetterberg, or whomever, and I always say the same thing: if there's enough hesitancy among part of the fan-base that a debate is even warranted, then the player in question probably shouldn't get their jersey retired.  I can't speak for the legends from before my time, but as far as Yzerman and Lidstrom go, both cases were overwhelmingly unanimous.

Does this compensate for the lack of legs in the one picture?

Are you trying to suggest that the photos in Putin's mother's apartment weren't already of McGrattan?


I laughed, I cried, then I went and hugged my life sized McGrattan doll.

Did you break into Putin's mother's apartment again and swap out all her photos with pictures of MacGratton?

Don't sleep on Phil the Thrill.  He may look like a custard filled eclair, but me moves like a god damn antelope.

As the old expression goes, money /= happiness. Babs will be miserable for at least 3 years in Buffalo, they aren't even close to a playoff team yet.


Does anyone have Mike's email before he makes a decision, I want to send him this article and findings:

#2605773 Call Out the NHL on BS

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 03 May 2015 - 07:57 PM

If I wasn't on mobile, I would be posting the "old man yells at cloud" picture from the Simpsons.

So just imagine that's what you're looking at right now.

Perfect :lol:

And since there's some sensitive people *points* up there who can't handle some levity in the thread, let me be painfully on topic in sharing my opinion on The State of the NHL:

The game is changing. The league is changing. The way the game was played 30 years ago would be a bad fit for the current situation on multiple levels. As someone mentioned before, players today are faster, bigger, and stronger than ever before. Gear is more high tech. And we have knowledge now regarding health and safety issues that was not widely available before. The league would be foolish and unprogressive if they dug their heels in and refused to develop the game in a way that addresses these challenges. Do I like every change that is made? No. But I also have no misconceptions that me raging against the machine is gonna make a rabbit's fart of a difference. "Pretend we have an audience.". We *do*. Social media has developed to a point where officials ABSOLUTELY know how fans of the game feel about each and every little thing. They just don't *care*. Because here's the kicker, and if I have to pick the one thing that bothers me the most it would be this: WE are not who the league is reaching out to. The die hard, post on a hockey team's message board, donate money to charity based on playoff performance, contemplate homicide of other players not on our team who are probably pretty nice guys otherwise type people are going to follow our team /the league *anyway*. Our $ is not the growth, because it has always *been there*. These changes, the outreach, the people pleasing (if any) will not be directed at us. It will be directed at Joe Non-hockey Schmo whose ass they're trying to pull into a seat. Trying to pull into the NHL shop. Trying to pull into buying that cable package or GCL. So the game is gonna change. Because hockey is not very accessible to people who aren't familiar with it. Do I like it? Not necessarily, but in a way that mirrors why my grandpa doesn't like it that he can't find a doctor with a name he can pronounce. There are some changes the league is looking into that I think will be beneficial like 4-4 overtime and video reviews, but to opine that the league is "changing" because it's not like it was 30 years ago is short-sighted, unnecessarily nostalgic, and unprogressive. Time marches on. Things change. And now I've forgotten my larger point.

Which is why "old man yells at cloud" sums up my feelings perfectly, and isn't as sarcastic as you thought.

f*** off.


You...should probably step away from your keyboard for a minute.
