Tried to post about Steigerwald down on the HFBoards. Post deleted multiple times. No room for free thought down at them good old Pens forums.

#2115304 Isles vs Pens

out of all the stuff that happened and you think godard(not gonchar lol) protecting his goaltender was gutless? you cant let your goalies fight goons even if they want to..

Sorry, on my IPhone and only based my opinion on that first video. Yeah, the sucker punch was pretty disgusting. Guy should be suspended for the rest of the season for even attempting it. What I'm most annoyed with though are those damn Pittsburgh announcers. I mean, the audacity of those two. A team calling out another for their "dirty players" and being an "embarrassment to the league" when this team couldn't BUY a win from 00-06 and have arguably the dirtiest player in the league (Cooke). Pot, meet kettle.

Can't believe all the negative reactions on here. Do you change the channel during regular hockey fights as well? I mean, some of the most memorable events in hockey are brawls, like Col/Det 97 and Ottawa/Buffalo 08. I thought the whole thing was a million kinds of awesome. If it was on a constant basis, i can see it being ridiculous, but personally I love seeing a brawl now and again. Just reinforces how unbelivably awesome hockey is. The only lame aspect of it was Gonchar coming off the bench to double team the NY player. Pretty gutless I must say.

#2105400 Tampa Bay quietly rising to top 4

As of right now I don't see them as a contender. Their defense is too spotty and the goaltending is going nowhere (Rolli is 41 and Ellis is a sieve).

Yzerman will at least be able to watch how they perform in the playoffs to get a good perspective on what he needs to change though. Great start by him.

Can you really blame the guy given his current financial situation?

400 for Ozzie

4 point night for Lids (point on every single goal)

I found a place in Winnipeg (hometown) that will do it.

$600 bucks is pretty steep when the regular stuff is $140.

It would essentially look like this when done.

My god thats bad ass.

#2058575 Florida marketing to Montreal Canadiens fans?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 06 November 2010 - 02:37 AM

Financially smart or not, I think this is gutless and demonstrates a complete lack of respect for the team and their fanbase.

#2050663 How many goals will Franzen score this season?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 22 October 2010 - 09:54 AM

I'm thinking 40ish. His play this season is really starting to make me feel better about the Hossa/Franzen decision.

#2047177 Zetterberg Slowing Down?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 14 October 2010 - 11:05 PM

Zetterberg started slowing down last season and I've yet to see him regain his pace.

#2029653 Bill Guerin will NOT be offered a contract

Posted by ShanahanMan on 27 August 2010 - 08:20 AM

You guys really confuse the hell out of me sometimes. So signing a guy like Mike Modano who had 30 points last season for 1.5 mil is an awesome idea but signing Guerin, a player who had more goals and points, for one third the price is stupid. I just don't get the logic.

#2027992 How big of a Wings fan is your Wife/Girlfriend/Significant Other?

Posted by ShanahanMan on 21 August 2010 - 08:13 AM

Is it weird that I have my girlfriend wear nothing but a Lebda jersey everytime we do it?

#2027991 Penguins sign Arron Asham

Posted by ShanahanMan on 21 August 2010 - 08:09 AM

GMR has hit the nail right on the head. Asham is someone the Wings really could have used.....a gritty, tough player who can also put up points. Instead, we sign a past-his-prime unnecessary player in the likes of Modano for more than twice the price and then offer Downey a try-out. Really boggles the mind. Asham was a presence our 4th line definitely needed.

#2024393 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Posted by ShanahanMan on 09 August 2010 - 01:14 PM

Yeah but Lils wanted quite a bit more money and also more playing time and Mitchell was likely always too expensive.

I suppose if Lilja goes for more than 1.2 mil (including bonuses) or so, then you're right, we wouldn't have been able to sign him. But if he (or other younger, more worthwhile defensemen) ends up going for around the same price as Salei, Im gonna be a bit.....annoyed :ranting:.
