#2598808 Knuckles vs Numbers - The death of the enforcer

Posted by Mckinley25 on 23 April 2015 - 04:59 PM

Sure why not, just let other guys punch our stars and smaller guys in the head and then run to the league crying for a suspension. Instead of handling that stuff like men and call the on ice police and fire the team up.

Actually, that would be handling it like children, who don't know any better.

I figured this thread would be busier with the Pens on the brink. 

I don't want the Pens to win the series but I hope it lasts longer than 5 games.

Stamkos is going to playing hard after taking responsibility for the Lighting being down, Wings need to do everything right. Go Wings!!

You can call the Datsyuk goal a lucky bounce if you want, but he passed the puck and headed for the net, that's how it's supposed to work, you get bounces in your favor when you do that.

I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure these trophies are all based on the regular season alone..?

You are not wrong.
In fact I'm fairly certain the voting has already been completed.

#2596620 Oilers win the Draft Lottery

They absolutely should trade the pick for pieces that they need. I know McDavid is supposed to be the next Crosby but they don't need another forward and this is a golden opportunity for them to do the smart thing.

But... it's the Oilers, so...

They'd be stupid to trade away the next Crosby. Trade other forwards for D and goaltending maybe.

The Wings effort is about on par with these thread titles.

Ok, can someone explain to me--in a non-biased way without using the word "attitude" or any of its synonyms--why people seem to hate PK sooooo much? Because I *really* struggle to see what is so outrageously offensive about him. I get it--he's similar to B Smitty in that he has immaturity and impulsivity issues, but SO DO A LOT OF PLAYERS. I never see the same vitriol pointed in their direction. Would people seriously not want him on the Wings? Or is he only hated because he's on the Habs? This is an honest question, help me understand.

I hate EVERYTHING about him! Well except his hockey skill, he's really good. And his personality, he's passionate and I'd like to see some Wings have that. And he doesn't really dive any more than anyone else. And I don't mind that he plays for the Habs. It's not his fault. So really it's not his clothes or attitude or abilities, but everything else I hate. That other stuff.

So did anyone else see the astronaut in the crowd tonight?


Uh oh, somewhere out in space there's a hockey fan floating around.

Better get this in before the game starts:

$1 for every goal by a defenseman. X

$5 for every shut out. XX

$5 for every series win.

$100 for a Stanley cup win.

$200 if the red wings lose in the cup finals but a red wing wins the con smythe. Because why not.

$25 minimum donation for a good cause.

Total tally after 5: $36

Its brutal. Not to sound like Don Cherry, but I miss the hockey that I grew up with. Subban would be made to answer for his cheapshots in the form of a fight. Nowadays these guys can het away with anything and that's why you see these insane slashes and hits from behind. There is no physical punishment to deter this garbage. It makes me sick.

It was never a deterrent anyway, it still happened, otherwise you'd say, "I miss old time hockey when this never happened and there were never any fights because the threat of a fight was enough to stop cheap shots."

#2592214 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Mckinley25 on 11 April 2015 - 12:03 PM

I'm all for having guys on the team who will back other players up, but the era of the enforcer is over. Having a guy who is only good at throwing punches and can't skate, shoot, or score is nothing but a waste of a roster spot. Now if you have a guy that can fight, as well as help the team offensively or defensively, then that's different. But just some meatbag with a uniform who is a liability anytime the puck gets near him...nah. 

You're forgetting one important detail; without players like Orr, hockey = soccer.

Want proof? Smith recently played the puck with his hands and was penalized. I think I've made my point.

You can't tell because the picture's cropped, but they're in Brian MacGratton's bedroom.

Getting ready to drive down, win please.
Thought datsyuk was playing?

I think the second Nyquist is actually Datsyuk in disguise.
