The tooth can be reimplanted if the tooth structure is still relatively intact.  Having real is always better than crowns, bridges or implants.

You also don't want to be playing a hockey game with teeth rolling around the ice (dangerous)




#2504371 Ovechkin and ES

Posted by kipwinger on 01 April 2014 - 12:56 PM

How many of those awards are heavily inflated by his scoring? He's a competitor for sure but I don't think I'd make him a captain.

 

But that's not what you said.  You called him a complimentary player...and he's not.  I'd agree that there are better players in the league, or guys that are better leaders  or whatever.  But to say he's a complimentary player is silly.  He had four 100 points seasons while being the primary offensive threat on his team. 

 

You're saying he's not "the guy" because he doesn't play defense...and he doesn't, I agree.  But lots of guys don't play defense yet still get credit for being first rate players.  Certainly nobody would call Kessel, Vanek, Kane, etc. complimentary players.  But for whatever reason it's popular these days to downplay just how good Ovechkin is...even if he could be better.

My problem with Ovi is he has the god given ability to be a dominant hockey player everywhere on the ice. He has the size, the speed, the agility, the strength, the hands, and the shot. But all you ever see him do it wait at the blue line, go to the slot, and rip it. and occasionally throw a check. 


The dude is built like bull, a hockey machine, every ability you could want is there. If played like Lindros he could be better than crysby


#2502666 Avery vs. Brodeur

Posted by T.Low on 28 March 2014 - 05:20 PM

haha, yeah. Eff Neal.
 
No matter what you say about him, though, he has the trump card every time:
 
Elisha Cuthbert


Au contraire , mon ami: I've got Jen Murphy, known across our hockey league as The Jenerator. As a defensive pairing, our goalie once informed us that we'd gone 11 games in a row without getting scored upon. Murph is a Class IV white water kayaker. An excellent mountain biker. Restored her own 63 Volvo. Dabbles in triathlons. Is too smart to ever go out with Avery or Phanuef. And most relevantly, is a huge Red Wing fan.

Cuthbert would be fun for a long weekend, but as far as a lifetime goes, I've got the trump card.

My GF had neighbors like that.  Fortunately her apartment complex didn't put up with it very long.  3rd time they had the police there for a noise complaint, the kids were gone.
 
I understand having fun, but the kid needs to grow up a bit or get a nice house in the suburbs.



When I was that age, I was doing similar things. Only I was in my own home town, in my native country. My father was still alive and very available for guidance and perspective. And I wasn't making bank. And I wasn't nearly as high strung to begin with.

It's a strange period in his life, no doubt. But IMO, they're the golden years. I would recommend not growing up too fast. You can never go back.

Damn kids with their zima, hula hoops, and Pac man video games.


People today have attention spans that can only be measured in nanoseconds!


#2501708 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by amato on 27 March 2014 - 07:54 AM

Weiss can play wing. No reason it has to be either Legwand or Weiss.

Franzen-Datsyuk-Z
Weiss-Legwand-Alfredsson

is a heck of a top 6.

Then, Tatar-Sheahan-Nyquist as the 2b line.

 

yes please. :D 

 

that would likely leave jurco at the first "injury call up" position.

I'd really like to see him start the season in detroit but that top nine would be incredible.

so stoked on how much sheahan (& everyone else) has broken out this year


 

Also, some people just don't understand the cap era, and won't be happy unless we can ice a roster of future hall of famers. 

 

 

and tears form remembering 2002 team with that lineup.....d*mn you cap d*mn you

 

 

I'm convinced that team caused the salary cap era to begin :P

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 23 March 2014 - 12:40 PM

Or maybe he thought it was...semen.


Ah, there it is. Like a warm blanket and a mug of tea in front of the fire on a cold day...

But I also agree with the first part too. We've all had those days where tons of bad things happen and we're all able to soldier on, but then something little happens like you bump into a wall on accident and all of a sudden EVERYTHING IS THAT GOD DAMNED WALL'S FAULT AND *punch punch* I WILL BRING IT DOWN LIKE THE STINKIN' PATRIARCHY THAT MADE IT!!!!!1111111

Or Eakins is just a giant douchenozzle. I haven't decided yet.

Either way, he made himself look like an ass on national television.

Eakins is a loser. No doubt.

But Hall is a loser too. And maybe he did it on purpose, which would be completely unsurprising and really classless.

 

Hall slammed the water bottle down on the bench.  That would be pretty difficult to hit the coach intentionally doing that. 

 

According to Oilers fans Eakins benched Hall for 16 minutes and also came out in a new suit jacket in the third period.  Ridiculous.  

 

 

Some Oilers fan threw another jersey on the ice and Scrivens used his goalie stick to hurl it back into the crowd.  Pretty awesome.

I'd imagine this is more of a this-team-sucks-and-I-just-need-one-little-thing-to-set-me-off-omg-my-best-player-just-squirted-me-with-water kind of thing. Or maybe he thought it was...semen.

 

At any rate, I predict Hall will demand a trade to the Red Wings.
