#2310418 Parise Likely Out. Next Options

Posted by kipwinger on 27 June 2012 - 12:11 PM

Thats where it gets messy. Sid the Kid said he's willing to lower his contract and only take a 550,000 raise inorder for them to build a championship team around him. He's willing to take the paycut inorder to win. Parise will not make more than Crosby.

That's a real nice sentiment from Crosby and all, but considering the last two years that he's had, and the big question mark hanging above his head for the forseeable future, I doubt he was going to get much of a raise anyway.

#2212592 Caps, Pens schedule benefit

If what I think is happening than I'm disgusted to see this. The Benefit is Fantastic and that's not what I'm upset about; but WHY is it the Pens and Caps doing this. Something tells me that Bettman set this up to make these two teams look this classy. It just so happens that it's Crosby's and Ovechkin's Teams that are doing this. How many players on the plane actually played on the Pens or Caps team?? 3 Former Red Wings died on the plane and yes the Wings went to the Funeral but why aren't they doing something like that. That's more of a thing that I would imagine that Mr. Illitch would set up with the Wings since I truly believe that he is a classy guy. I hope I'm wrong and if I am I'll eat Crow but it just makes me believe that it wasn't truly the idea of these two teams to do this and that there is a mastermind behind it. I know the plane crash did have an effect on Ovechkin at least that's what I heard but it just smells a little fishy to me to make Crosby and Ovechkin and their teams out to be the good guys. If something is going to be done it should envolve the entire NHL. If I'm out of line I apologize.

Malkin. Ovechkin. Russians. Dots? Connected.

I understand that Malkin and Ovechkin are Russian but so is Datsyuk an so is a lot of other players in the league. My question is WHY these two teams specifically?? Shouldn't the entire NHL have events like this with ALL 30 NHL Teams since there were some former NHL Players that died on the plane? If I'm out of line fine I apologize to anyone and everyone. I just don't see why it's only the Pens and Caps that are doing this. I know Jimmy Howard had the back of his Mask painted in honor of the 3 Fallen Red Wings and that's great. I just don't want this to be a publicity stunt in order to make the Caps and Pens look like the Saints of the NHL when the Plane Crash should have effected the entire NHL. Sorry for making so many people upset of this post but I get a little tired of hearing about these two teams so much every season becasue of a couple players on each team when there are 30 teams with other players just as great and even better.

You're probably the worst poster on this board.

What did I say that wasn't true about our play in 3rd periods over the years?

Now wonder people here are getting on your ass all the time. Thanks for contributing to the thread King Crymson. :thumbdown: That picture you posted should be reserved for you.
