#2436110 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

He'd just fall down and the octopus would slither away with the puck.



You could throw an octopus at him.

#2435922 Sedin Twins

Posted by FireCaptain on 11 September 2013 - 08:41 PM

I find it funny that its like I'm the only person who dislikes anybody. 




If you have to ask, then I'm afraid we can't help you


Irrational hatred for opposing players. What has to be rational about this?


My only gripe with them as players is they're rather one-dimensional, aren't they?


On a personal (but not rly cuz i dont no them imho) level, I call them the gingercreeps.


See, I'm not the only one that thinks they're creepy. 


Why create a thread about them after all? I think they are both fantastic player I also like their nickname as "Sedin Sisters" you never hear/read a bad thing about them, Sedins are known to be the hardest workers on the whole Canucks team and they are also the best ones. Hardly surprises me that they can't get the job done in the playoffs, the enemies just have to focus on them shut them down and basically the Canucks are done, they have traded away a lot of good young players and now are basically a one line team.


Because it's pre-season and Wing news is currently relegated to Dan (is he in or out, dammit he talked to Kenny) Cleary.


Then why discuss them? :)


Because one can only take SO MUCH Dan Cleary talk. ;)

Totally misleading headline from the Toronto Sun.


Robbery is against a person.

BURGLARY is against property.


I read the thread title and thought he was held up at gun point in Detroit.

And if unicorns existed, what color would he ride?

#2434728 Good things happening in Detroit

A very nice article outlining the efforts of some local firefighters and Nicole Curtis of Rehab Addict. 




Scroll down and the Wings are listed as donating smoke detectors to the effort. Surprised to see that none of the players were out there helping.

In Soviet Russia, 7 year old fights YOU.

#2433514 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

OP: this is not meant at you.


Where's the big outrage and calls for the NHL to move the Sens??


Wait, just because it snows there and its in Canada, the team HAS to be successful, no?


Atlanta, Florida, Tampa, Arizona, etc.. all lose money and people scream for the owner's heads and demand (as fans with NO input) for the teams to be moved to more viable markets. What about the precious Sens? Should they be moved. The article spells it out, they've lost (and continue to lose) Millions per year.


Quick, back up the Uhaul, these Sens should head to Seattle/Portland/Kansas City/wherever. Someone will build them a new stadium and the new fanbase will love them and shower the owners with guaranteed profits!


Step 1: lose money, move franchise.

Step 2: ??

Step 3: PROFIT!






Not sure this is the actual "nuke" but according to this, the Sens are losing $9-10m a year.

#2431728 ESPN/Sportscenter gives the NHL 2.7% of its time

Posted by FireCaptain on 28 July 2013 - 04:07 PM



What ESPN does or does not do is a moot point in my life.

My sports are hockey, Whitewater slalom kayaking, and off-road motorcycle racing ( motocross and enduro). While ESPN knows who Sidney Crosby is, they don't know who Graham Jarvis or Scott Shipley are

And those two are every bit as athletic, talented, skilled, and dedicated as Sidney Crosby but due to their obscure sports, nobody knows who they are. And I'm totally fine with that.
