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

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

Who?

 

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.

Bieber proofed? Did they hide all the mop buckets?

Dan Cleary, who has reportedly agreed to terms with the Wings but can’t officially sign until cap space has been cleared.

 

 

ERMAHGERD, CLERER! SERERSLER?

#2430652 Um, OK, not really sure this'll have the desired effect

Posted by FireCaptain on 18 July 2013 - 12:12 PM

Because they're trying something different and trying to grow their fanbase?

 

Some of the elitist attitudes around here are funny. 

 

^^ THIS is exactly why Nashville doesn't get taken seriously...




#2430483 Alfredsson and the #11

Posted by FireCaptain on 17 July 2013 - 10:13 AM

Yeah, but then we wouldn't have the great story about what Scotty said to him about the number 96.

 

 

..It's a great number, not like it's an odd ball one...I remember Holmstrom wearing it and IMO, he should have kept it.  Looked and still looks much better than 96...maybe 15 is reserved for the call-up position and only used until the player chooses another number...

 

 

 

 

Former Detroit Red Wings coach Scotty Bowman once asked Tomas Holmstrom why he chose to wear No. 96.

 

“That's the year I came here from Sweden,'' Holmstrom said.

 

“We'll, you should have picked 98,'' Bowman told him, “because that's the year you're going back.''

 

Bowman loved to needle Holmstrom, but he could take it.

I was just coming here to say that too. And to post this..

Yes he did.  So did Tomas Holmstrom at one point.

I predict that some people take this seriously and an over zealous MOD warns you about posting fake stories..

 

FTR: I think it's funny.

#2429564 Ilya Kovalchuk announces retirement

Posted by FireCaptain on 11 July 2013 - 03:26 PM

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA!

 

What I know in my 30 years as a Devils fan: When strange sh|t happens, there's a reason they call him Loophole Lou.

Yes, I think you've seen him before.

 

 

The kid on the second floor, who lives upstairs from Lou?

#2429004 Holland on SiriusXM w/ audio link

Posted by FireCaptain on 09 July 2013 - 01:17 PM

2 guys out of 720 NHL players?

 

Didn't someone already refute this idea with the stats and the lead in hits and things was minimal from the east over the west. 

 

How well did Lucic/Chara work against the Hawks?

 

Lucic and Chara will manhandle us.

"Reached out a to a bunch of UFAs" 

 

No mention of who or why they didn't work.

 

 

Weiss provides some consistent secondary scoring. Alfredsson was a TOTAL surprise coming out of the blue. 

 

 

Datsyuk, Weiss, Helm look to be strong down the middle and give Babcock options. We expect (to get his) best hockey out of 30-year-old Weiss.

 

 

People seem to think the East is bigger.. Chicago won the Cup. (other reasons why he disagrees)

 

 

If we can get some luck with some health and some of the players play to where we expect them to play - we think we got the potential to score a few more goals. DIRECT QUOTE.

 

Way to really sell the team there, Kenny, ol' boy. 

 

 

Bunch of pro-Chelios talk related to the HHOF. Acquired him in '99 trying to 3 -peat for Cup. Didn't work, but integral in '02 run and 2nd in Norris voting to Lids. Best American born defencemen of all time.

 

Shanny was premier power forward. Did it all. Helped Wings get over the top and win in '97 & '98.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TL,DR: We like our team.

NHL | Apparently, the only offer Damien #Brunner got so far was from the #RedWings. But #VAN, #CHI, #MTL and #CAR interested. (@JoeChapp)

 

 

 

 

 

FWIW. Keep hope alive. ;)
