Look I've had countless posts just disappear on me. Seriously I've lost track, it's that many. And from what I've read other posters have had similar issues.


It isn't an isolated issue, it happens all the time.


And again from other posters as well as my own experience, other forums aren't like this at all. It just doesn't happen. Except here.

Maybe you could make up some stats that keep track of why your content gets deleted. For example,


PIO - Personally insulting others

BAW - Bickering after warning

ALD - Acting like dick

TC% - Trolling content %


Just off the top of my head...

#2539280 more NHL wisdom: Chris Pronger may work for Dept of Player Safety

Was Freddy Kruger not available?

He's still waiting for them to green light "Nightmare on elm street 25: Freddy vs Jason vs Chucky vs Alien vs Predator vs Frankenstein vs Edward Cullen vs that scary acupuncture guy"

#2539247 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Posted by Bannedforlife on 09 October 2014 - 10:53 AM

I think it's a mistake to play all of the starters on opening night. What if they all get injured?! I think we should play all the Griffins tonight, and as they get injured throughout the year, we can replace them with the regulars. Duh.

#2539054 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 08 October 2014 - 12:00 PM


Do you really think it was some sort of strategy to make him hungrier to take a spot?  Seems like it was just the last vestiges of Babs' "tie goes to the vet" philosophy. 

I read this article on the subject just this morning

Someone "what's to stop Chelios"'ed the other day and I lol'd.

I think we need to bring it back this seaso--ahem, excuse me:

What's to stop Chelios from bringing back the "what's to stop Chelios" meme this season?

Nothing, that's what. Boom.

It was me. I was bummed nobody brought it up,.. until now!

#2538725 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 07 October 2014 - 10:58 AM

Weiss will be playing this week and as long as he is put with a couple decent linemates he will produce. He will be fine.


I don't think Datsyuk will be playing the first few games, but once he gets back he will be back to his same old magic.


Side note: Am I the only one who tries to picture what some people look and act like outside of this site? I have a lot of people pegged, whether I'm right or not, I'll probably never know... Either way, it entertains me to see some people act so childish on here, I can only assume that some of them are still children, but you never know... :lol:


This is what I imagine most of you look like...



#2538663 Will Cleary make the roster? (poll)

Posted by Bannedforlife on 06 October 2014 - 10:32 PM

It was Dirty Harry specifically, but really it was a culmination of all the lame and obnoxious nicknames a certain poster insisted on creating for the team. Like Laser, Fire, Diesel, etc. I was like, what the f*** are you talking about?

Pass on Hayes, draft Tuch and the Caps would be foolish to give up Wilson

Blake Wheeler, 70 points - Not even worth a 3rd round pick

Tom Wilson, 10 points - UNTOUCHABLE

Makes sense to me!

#2519179 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Posted by Bannedforlife on 04 May 2014 - 03:09 PM

Why would we have better off with Hossa? Is it because of your blinded man love for him or brutal hatred for Franzen?  In the 5 seasons since Hossa went to Chicago he has scored 125 goals in 315 games , .39 goals/ game average @ 5.275 million a year.  In the same amount of time Franzen has 97 goals in 275 games, .35 goals per game average @ 3.9 million per year.  1.8 million per year difference for .04 more goals per game.  If I'm doing the math correctly it seems that on cold hard facts alone we are actually getting a bargain with the Mule over Hossa.  With that being said I hope we can trade Franzen, I still think the Canucks are a good trade partner for us.  They can stick Franzen with the Sedin sisters and I would be glad to see some kind of deal that involved Kesler coming back this way. 

If you don't know that Hossa is a better hockey player and a better value than Franzen, then I really don't know what to tell you. Its not even close.

And to the guy that said that Hossa turned down the Wings offer because he wanted to test the market, thats not how it went down at all. Hossa wanted to sign here, and he was willing to do it for less than he ultimately signed with Chicago for. Holland wanted to sign Franzen first, and then he didn't have the cap space to sign Hossa because of Hudler's impending arbitration.

#2518740 Ken Holland Quotes (Apr 29th

Posted by Bannedforlife on 01 May 2014 - 05:14 PM

Can we please shelve the "kick the tires," "we like our team," "(player x getting healthy) is our deadline acquisition," and "our PP is our enforcer" jokes alongside "(player y) is lazy and sucks," and "what's to stop Chris Chelios from..." as tired?  I'm begging you, please.  This board needs new material.
PS:  The beard quote is pretty great.

There's a new clown joke going around that I really hope catches on because it is HILARZ!

Posted by Bannedforlife on 01 May 2014 - 03:14 PM

Broken record, but Niskanen would be a huge gamble. He's had a really good season, while playing for a contract, on the Pittsburgh Penguins, with Jacques Martin working his evil strategic voodoo. For that, Niskanen is going to score a massive contract. Just so incredibly massive you won't even believe it. And it'll probably be a team that needs to reach the cap floor. And everyone will probably be laughing at that GM in a year's time. And we'll probably want to laugh, but then we'll remember we have Franzen. But then we'll rationalize Franzen as a tremendous value.

For the record, we're dangerously close to being a salary floor team ourselves.
