#2202468 San Jose Sharks

Posted by Hiei on 04 August 2011 - 09:51 PM

Please. Sharks won game 7 on the strength of 2 injured wings and 2 that got injured during the game. and also during games 6 and 7 the top 2 lines were run 22-25 minutes. The Sharks threw it all on the boat to beat the Wings and had nothing in the tank for the Nucks.

They also haven't learned from running Nabokov into the ground. You can't run a goalie 70+ games and then expect excellent playoff performances, they do break down. They HAVE to work Niemi and Greiss as an actual tandem, something they've failed to do.

You know every time the Wings youtube channel interviews Draper and he talks about his kids, he smiles and brightens right up and starts going on about his kids. Even if the Wings just lost the finals, Kris would still brighten up when asked "Hows the wife and kids?" I think this'll be good for him to have more time with the family.


We're gonna miss #33.


#2200792 Ok here is what I don't get

Posted by Hiei on 24 July 2011 - 08:33 PM

Let's see.

Game 1. We hold a 1-0 lead until the last period and then lose in OT. I was in Troy at the Mariott watching during Penguicon, 1,407 Miles from here in Arkansas.

Game 2. SJ gets goals on some lucky bounces to shooters and one bounce past Howard

Game 3. We didn't come out well at all, skated and handled the puck poorly at home.

Game 4. OK, we prolonged the series

Game 5. We did what?!?!?!

Game 6. Came back in the 3rd with 2-3 quick goals and SJ's top two lines generated nothing.

Game 7. SJ Runs their top 2 lines most of the night, while Cleary and Bert go down with injuries.


Keep in mind that during games 6 and 7, their top 6 played a ton of minutes, and that really showed in the Vancouver series in the WCF. Thornton, Heatley, Setoguchi, Marleau, Pavelski all played a lot of time, 3rd and especially 4th lines were nowhere to be found.

And the biggest difference of all? The penalty calling was a lot more fair this year than last. Remember all the 5 on 3s from the 2010 series???

Let's look at it like this:


The Blues sold out all 19,150 seats at Scottrade Center 41 of 41 times last season. (ESPN)

The Blues are 11.5 million under the cap thus far. (capgeek)

The Blues are probably some postseason success away from frenzy-ing the populace in STL since the cardinals are standing to lose Pujols and inevitably slide, plus the rams are still sucking.

The Blues probably aren't bleeding money. The team was bought, mostly, on a loan of $120 million (or 80% of the final sale price) which was written in 2006, prior to the housing bubble burst. Checketts and Co. probably are getting pressure from CitiGroup (bailout anyone?) to pay back.

So Hulsizer pulls out of the deal with Phoenix because the details on that get sketchier by the minute. St Louis is a solid team with a fanbase established, and money ready to be printed. After all, Hulsizer wasn't planning on buying a team to move like Balsille or TNSE.


It boils down to this: Get a stable owner who is willing to use some $. Get the tickets to a reasonable price level to sustain the team somewhat, because if they're bleeding 10-15 million a year (one post on that thread in the link) while still being that much under the cap, what are they selling tickets for? 50 cents?

I'm with RF19. I'm tired of Howard being the prime enforcer on this team.


We need someone who can handle a pass and make a decent pass or shoot and not back down from a fight.



I'm tired of running into these damn goon squads that keep running our players, and these other teams that play tough but ham it up and dive in the playoffs (then again, if that gets you to the Western Conference Final...)


#2177666 Atlanta Thrashers move to Winnipeg

Posted by Hiei on 20 May 2011 - 12:41 PM

This is how I would re-align the divisions. Sensible.


NW: Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Colorado, Minnesota
PAC: Vancouver, LA, Anaheim, SJ, Phoenix (Wouldn't THAT be competitive)
CEN: St Louis, Columbus, Dallas, Chicago, Nashville


NE: Detroit, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Buffalo
ATL: NY Rangers, NY Islanders, NJ, Philly, Boston
SE: Tampa, Florida, Carolina, DC, Pittsburgh (just so we can have that Sid vs Ovi man-love fest for the east coast while an Yzerman-built team demolishes both of them)


Now THAT is sensible, Competitive, and great for ratings!

Can we trade salei for Lilja? :ph34r:



how does a puck travelling 1/2 MPH go through your stick 4 times and your feet and you let it slide 2 feet over the blue line?


#2147023 Officials named for the playoffs

Posted by Hiei on 12 April 2011 - 05:17 PM

O'Halloran = New Age Mick McGeough.

Devorski = Last of the old guard.


None of these other referees could hold a candle to McCreary or Van Hellemond.
