#2563071 Mike Yeo (Wild) Has Meltdown At Practice

Posted by frankgrimes on 14 January 2015 - 12:17 AM

What happened to them? I thought they started the season off strong? (Or am I thinking of another team?)

Waived Harding because he kicked a wall and their goaltending has been shaky ever since, their 2 only superstars had to deal with much more important stuff and the team" is to easy to push around, ( wings West)

Except Holland will never go after a Prust, Dorsett or Stewart because they fight.  He doesn't care if they score goals and contribute as leaders somehow.  If you fight, Holland and Babcock don't want you.  Look how they ran Tootoo out of town because he actually fought.  They want their 4th liners to be faceless jobbers who the fans don't care about.    



If he ever reads your post and runs into you in public (or private), this is the look you'd get.  Please choose your words carefully.  





It should be pretty obvious by now that pictures of Brian McGrattan don't have the same visceral affect on me that they do on you.  Although, I will say that it's fitting that you chose a picture of him doing something other than skating.

And his GA ( = groin against) is just pathetic compared to other goalies.

I'm pretty sure gustavsson's groin against average is worse. I could be wrong though

So you want Lucic to hurt someone so that your enforcers are relevant? Am I the only one reading this?


That's right.  He wants Lucic to go out of his way to hurt someone, so that McGuffin can come back and make Lucic not hurt people anymore. 


And that, in a nutshell, is the mentality of the pro-fighting crowd.

I don't know man, Brendan Smith's a pretty handsome dude.


I'm not really into dumb chicks.

Who's been protecting them?? If anyone has they've been doing a s***ty job, by your own admission there's a lot of rats in league. You know, the same league McGratton is in.


Was in. 

#2560920 Randy Carlyle relieved of his duties by Leafs

Posted by rick zombo on 06 January 2015 - 02:27 PM

The great thing about being a Leaf is the lifetime supply of Tim Horton's.  





Hard to believe that's a professional hockey player. Looks more like one of the IT guys here at work.

This announcement on Yahoo was headed by a picture not of Carlyle, not Nonis, but Mike Babcock.  Wonder where they're going with that little bit of subliminal suggestion?


Subliminal? There is nothing subliminal when it comes to Leafs nation and Babcock.


I almost expect either Horacheck or Spott to be wearing "the McGill tie" behind the bench tonight.

I doubt it. But we would love it!


Me too!  He'd punch so many guys.  Like, all the time he'd be punching guys.  Punching guys is awesome!

#2557017 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

Posted by DeGraa55 on 16 December 2014 - 02:32 AM

Hopefully his contract will get voided and they send his wife beating disgusting animal ass back to Russia.what a douchebag

Now while I'm not defending him this might be too far.

I've always been a firm believer people deserve a second chance. He should be suspended for the full year. Then like NFL if there is a second incident banned for life.

Rather someone does something major or minor once is an accident twice is a habit or whatever the saying is.

So after a long suspension and after jail time counseling etc etc he shoukd get a second and FINAL chance.

McGrattan and Engelland will make a man out of him yet.  


Wouldn't McGrattan need to spend more than 6:30 minutes with him per night to have any sort of impact at all?  I literally spend more time on the toilet per day than Brain McGrattan does playing hockey on game night.

Great post finally someone is sharing my views on toughness. A few years ago guys like Dmac, Downie or even Shanahan would have wiped the floor with enemies but now the team is a bunch of small fairies that's too easy to intimidate and that's against a Leafs team that didn't even ice Orr and McClaren. Disgusting for a team that once had the heavyweight belt. And people are still wondering why the season ticket list turned from a waiting list to running commercials... The mixture just isn't there. Former Wings were exciting to watch because they were built in skill, grit and an overall hardworking hockey club who could beat the other team in many ways and stood up for each other. The Lemieux incident nowadays would result in a crying for Quinta instead of taking justice in the own hand and let someone go Berserk soon sad



So your blaming poor ticket sales on the fact we don't fight anymore.... Would have nothing to do with the economy.


I would love for you to explain to Bob Probert's wife and 4 kids as well as countless other familys that lost someone way too soon because it will sell more tickets. Ignoring the long term effects of head trauma due to toughness is ignorance.

I agree with your position on fighting, but I don't really want to make his a pro vs. anti fighting thread. 


And you're right, I am assuming people would react differently.  That's because in all my life, I've never known a sports fan who was ok with with a questionable referee decision if said decision wasn't in their teams' favor.  Occasionally fans will begrudgingly accept a refs' decision if it's too obvious to ignore, or else the outcome of the decision is inconsequential.  But if it matters at all, every fan will always take their teams' side.  That's what being a fan is all about.  So if Smith is winning it's "let em' go ref" and if he's losing it's, "they need to get involved earlier". 


Same with penalties.  Think about it.  People ***** and moan about the refs CONSTANTLY on this site, but conveniently leave out the part about how the Wings get more powerplays than almost every other team in the league.  Pretty mum on that one, because it helps us out. 


Cause other teams are mean and we're nice  :innocent:
