Coming from an epic GDT creator this is high praise.

 

This GDT is pure gold. FlashyG, you win the Internets.

#2494141 Crazy move to score a goal - OHL

Carolina Hurricanes prospect Sergey Tolchinsky is, at least for the time being, playing in the Ontario Hockey League for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. We say "for the time being" because, well, did you see that shot?

 

 




#2493323 UFA/RFA Re-Signing, What Does Everyone Get?

Posted by FireCaptain on 08 March 2014 - 10:08 PM

I don't know where the first page of this thread gets the idea that Alfie is done after this season. If he doesn't retire (seems unlikely since he's playing well and apparently having fun), both he and DRW want to have him here next year.

#2491557 21 games to make it 23 years

Posted by FireCaptain on 06 March 2014 - 01:24 AM

Jarnkrok is outside of that realm, as he's: 1) not a roster player, 2) not a regular call up player and 3) moving ONE player is not selling the farm like Babcock was eluding to. 

Can someone point me to the quote where Holland says he's not going after a rental?  I'm sure it exists, but I'd just like to have reference to it.

 

Just as a sidenote:  Babcock was quoted today with wanting to not lose young talent from within the locker-room.  Specifically:  Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, Glendening, and DeKeyser.

 

Calle falls outside of that realm, I guess.

#2485359 Call ups.. Sheahan, Emmerton, Pulkkinen and Almquist

Of course his house was connected first, how else was he supposed to post horseback riding, topless selfies?

it's still under construction, the internet was supposed to be completed there by the time the olympics started, but by the time the mafia took their cut of the funding, they only had run a wire to Vladimir Poutine's house

How is Tonya Harding doing lately?

 

I know some people who could take care of his knee caps...




#2483268 NHL salary cap numbers applied to the Olympic teams

Posted by FireCaptain on 10 February 2014 - 08:06 PM

No surprise that Canada and the US are way over the cap.

 

It is surprising that Sweden almost makes the cut.

 

Russia being right at the cap, isn't surprising since they have a pro-KHL attitude it seems. It also helps that Kovalchuk retired from the NHL.

#2480426 2/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Capitals 6 (OT)

Posted by FireCaptain on 02 February 2014 - 05:10 PM

Well, having been there tonight, I have to say, I can't complain about an eleven goal game, except for the outcome. Wings stated like s***e, probably shouldn't have gotten a point. Glad they did tho. Vibe in the Verizon was that ovie was due. Sure enough. Bastard. Lots of wing chants. Good time! Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk


#2477015 Whom to blame for this goal? A referee or the goalie?

Posted by FireCaptain on 25 January 2014 - 06:43 AM

I hope he at least got the girl in the corner's number.




#2474515 Injuries + The League = Money.

Posted by FireCaptain on 20 January 2014 - 02:01 PM

I disagree with their hypothesis. 

 

Yes, there is a cost, but to imply that it is directly related to ticket prices or should be treated differently than other costs is silly. It's like saying a Big Mac costs 30 cents more today because the fry cook stuck his hand in the oil. 

 

Yes, there are costs, but to say that if they made the game less hockey-like and therefore safer (less injuries) that the costs would go down is nonsensical.
