#2483249 NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

Posted by GoalieManPat on 10 February 2014 - 07:20 PM

Well, that's the argument, I'm just not sure it really works.  Who is watching these games?  Non fans that all of a sudden start watching the NHL?  Or is it already existing NHL fans?  There is also a big difference between games in Vancouver and games in Sochi or other parts of the world.

 

During the 2010 final you had bars packed with non hockey fans watching the game. Having the games held closer to normal US viewing times helped but who cares were the games are held. The Olympics are for the whole world not just the north american tv audience. 

 

 

Or Datsyuk and and Kronwall collide at center ice and both get hurt and are out for the regular season.  Kiss the playoffs goodbye Wings fans.

They could just as easily get hurt and miss the rest of the season while playing for Detroit as they can for there country. The they could get injured excuse is BS. A player could cut there finger making dinner, get in a wreck on the way to work, etc. Theres always a chance a player could get hurt in there normal lifes. Should owners put all players in a bubble when they are not on the ice for said team to prevent injury?

Yea I prefer to avoid the wings broadcast, I actually like the florida feed, its considered one of the best around while the wings one is always ranked towards the bottom.

Dunno about that. Most of those "rankings" are based off fan votes who just hate on the Wings do to there success. Ken Daniels is considered one of the best play by play guys in the game.

Has Smith been a healthy scratch the past couple of games? What has he done or not done, other than the usual?

 

No he got scratched last game after his terrible penalty in OT against Washington.

 

Im predicting 4-2 Florida. All the other games the Wings should have won against them Ive picked the Wings so Im switching it up to send some bad joo joo to Florida.

The 2nd video was on an epic level I never thought was achievable. 




#2481356 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 05 February 2014 - 12:51 AM

"2/3's Demoted When Healthy" line?




#2481354 Vets over the Kids?, not any more eh Babs.

Posted by GoalieManPat on 05 February 2014 - 12:49 AM

Bert, Sammy, and Cleary are fine on your list. I wouldn't include Weiss. Sure hes a vet but hes a vet in his prime being only 30. Bert, Sammy, and Cleary are washed up vets on the wrong side of 35. I believe Weiss was a lot more hurt the first half of the season than was let on as he wanted to play and prove himself to a new club. Its worth holding off judgement on him for a while still before you could throw him in with the other 3.

Are you really that big of a cynic? 

No. Conspiracy theories are more fun tho.

Holland made a risky trade in 2001-02 for Hasek. He can do it, he just needs to be reminded of his job as a GM to make this team better...

Lol Kozlov and a 1st was a risky trade? Please........

There was barely any contact.  Not like he just set a pick on him basketball style.  


By rules in that instance no contact is allowed. Smith has to know any contact in that situation will send him to the box. Refs will always put a team on the powerplay over letting a call go that directly leads to a game winning chance. Has always been that way. Why is anyone surprised by it?

Posted by GoalieManPat on 01 February 2014 - 12:25 AM

Entertaining game and a win in the end. Cant complain about that as a fan. Good to see Jimmy come back strong. Cant remeber a time a wings goalie stopped all 7 shooters in a shootout. Neuvirth was the star of the game. Wings could have won by 3 if he played like he normally does. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Tapatalk


#2478665 Muslims targeting Sochi :(

Posted by GoalieManPat on 29 January 2014 - 04:47 AM

Im sure the other 99.9% of the worlds 1+ billion Muslims might be offended with this title. A more responsible one might have been radicals or terrorist target Sochi. Eric Rudolph bombed the 96 Olympics but you wouldnt say Christians targeted Atlanta would you?

3. Ozzie is a decent aannouncer but he needs to learn when to shut up.. :P

 

Ill disagree with that 100% right there. I dont think hes even decent. Repeats the same thing over and over and doesnt have the voice to be an announcer. It was painfull last night listening to Ozzie. I even mentioned it during the game in this thread. He really needs to stick to the between periods analysis where he says his peace and then we don't hear him for another 45 minutes. I think hes quite a bit better in that position.
