#2556994 Where were team-mates on the Smith headshot

Posted by Mckinley25 on 15 December 2014 - 11:52 PM

What's your solution?  Shanahan's suspensions didn't seem to work as much as desired.  And cheap hits in the playoffs have resulted in fighting.  The Ottawa vs. Montreal series a few years ago turned into a fight fest due to a cheapshot.  The 2012 playoffs had a ton of brawls and skirmishes in the first round.    
Historically, though, there's never been as much fighting in the playoffs as the regular season.  Even in the 80's or early 90's.    

Honestly, I don't know that I have a solution, but I also haven't been tasked with it in any official capacity. I believe before fighting can be eliminated the NHL has to assume a stronger position against it, but there are at this time too many fans and consequently too much money, in support of fighting.

Save for Engelland, Gallant, McQaid and sometimes Simmons middleweight fights are extremely boring and the difference in fighting skills becomes obvious.

Watching heavyweight's play hockey is what's boring.

...been thinking about Crosby's lips a lot, Mac?

It's the only thing I think about when I think about Crosby.

I am very apply there are ok shootouts in the playoffs but to deny he suffers in some aspects is dumb

Google translate just makes it worse, don't even bother.

I don't own a katana.

I just don't like pain. Or the sight of guts. I'd probably cry, then vomit. Then soil myself just to round it out.

I do hope he stays though, but a year to year thing I'd be fine with. Well except for the endless media speculation.

It's ok to bring up a bad play, but to keep track of that as just more useless ammunition against him was more torches and pitchforks than constructive. If you had continued to do so you'd have likely found that it had not contributed the GAA in any significant amount. I believe that was the criticism, people were just piling on Howard in an unwarranted fashion.

Phaneuf's dirtstache makes me want to punch him in the dick

If he had a nickel for every time someone wanted to punch him in the dick he probably have like, 7 million dollars a year or something.

I love hockey players (as we all do), and believe there are such things as good hockey names.
Ryan Callahan - solid red-blooded american hockey name
Vladimir Konstantinov - bad ass russian hockey name
Guy Lafleur - beautiful french-canadian hockey name

Justin Abdelkader - is the same sound I make when I vomit (don't get me wrong,I love the guy)
IDK I'm probably just weird.

Anyone else remember those wonderful Guy LaFleur ads with Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas? Still makes me laugh.

Then the casual user will feel more professional when watching something as serious as hockey fights.  

I understand now, the site looks that way because it reflects the type of consumer that cares about hockey fights?

#2554164 Kings fined $100K for allowing Slava Voynov to practice w/ team

Posted by Mckinley25 on 05 December 2014 - 09:28 PM

Who said he did it?!

NHL may wait for court decision.
They felt they could allow Dany Heatley on the ice as soon as he was ready physically (4 month after he killed his teammate) and court decision came months later...
Or you're saying beating a person is much worse than killing one?

Slava, is that you?

I just watched the recap. The freshest thing in my memory is what a dude Helm is protecting the puck at the end getting datsyuk the goal. Class act

I love the replay because it shows just how fast he is too.

#2552706 Mantha getting closer.

Posted by Mckinley25 on 30 November 2014 - 12:31 AM

Mantha with an assist and 3 shots tonight. Pulks with 3 helpers and Callahan with 2 goals.

Enroth is playing out of his mind right now.
How many points back are they?

The wings are only 3 points behind both Tampa and Montreal but with two games in hand on the Habs and only one in hand on the bolts.

Snow rules dude.  I miss it so bad.  Everybody in Michigan ******* about the snow, but I honestly dont' know what they'd do without it.  Snow makes Northerners tough.  You've got to be tough when the world is dead for half a year.  And we thrive on that.  You'd go absolutely crazy if you had to listen to these Southerners whine about a 50 degree night in dixie. 
All of the best things happen when it's cold.  Hockey, hunting season, dark beer, flannel, snowmobiles, ice fishing, and heavy set girls. 
What's to like about warmer climates?  Flip flops and Jimmy Buffet?  Ewww.  No thanks. 

Yeah I don't mind the snow, I grew up here so I'm used to it, but it's the only thing here haha. I admittedly got a little spoiled living in Boston, Columbus, NY and LA with all the Libraries, museums, film festivals etc.,

But my family is here and they don't steal my money so it's good. (I of course don't have 30million dollars though)
