Just an idea- what about a WC champion? Play every year till you lose the game. Can be played in neutral arena

#2237791 Jimmy for Vezina

Posted by Ozzie30 on 21 December 2011 - 02:21 PM


1. Jimmy Howard, Detroit Red Wings

A couple of things stand out for us when it comes to the likable Detroit netminder. First, he leads the NHL in the one stat that trumps all others: wins. But beyond his 20 victories, Howard has been one of the busiest goalies in the league, ranking third in minutes played and 10th in shots against. In short, Howard has been a rock for the Wings, especially when they were struggling to find their offensive game, holding the fort with a 1.91 GAA fifth-best in the league.

“He’s been our best player for sure,” Detroit head coach Mike Babcock told ESPN.com during the Wings’ pre-Christmas western road trip.

The Wings, 12-3-0 in their past 15 games, are three points back of Chicago for the Central Division and Western Conference leads, and the rapidly maturing Howard is a big part of the team’s success.

“We’re playing him a lot. We’re riding him, but he’s young,” said Babcock, joking that Howard, 27, has plenty of time to rest later.

Plus the other candidates

In addition to everything thats already been said, the league needs to mandate better head protection for the players - there's much better technology out there (arguably) - who cares what it looks like. Anythings better then having drool wiped from your chin at 45 years old.
Point is, the NHL needs to get in front of this thing before major media does otherwise it could be game over (as we know and love it)

#2233089 Realignment decided - 4 Conferences

If you want to play those Western teams more, it would mean more travel.

The fact we don't play the Eastern teams more frequently is no different than the current format.

You missed the point.
I'm sick if making new rivalries based on the latest whim of a s***box commissioner. How long till he squashes any new ones we make here?

Fail. So we get 38 games of s***ty divisional hockey vs Columbus and Minnesota but only get to see Toronto Montreal Boston Rangers Avs Ducks Sharks and Nucks twice each? Sorry, right now this blows...
LMFAO there's 16 teams eastern timenzoned teams and only 14 made the cut. I hate you for ruining my game Gary!

#2205166 Your Favorite Wings Lines Ever

Posted by Ozzie30 on 25 August 2011 - 09:51 PM

Favorite is definitely the Russian Five, although the Grind line is a close second and the Sergei Brownov coming in third.

#2205081 Who will get the final bobblehead?

Posted by Ozzie30 on 25 August 2011 - 05:24 AM

...Personally, I will try to attend the Datsyuk bobblehead night, craziest bobblehead ever!!

Not that crazy, they can use his natural proportions.

I voted Kronwall.

Unlikely. At minimum, it will go to the "unofficial" status where #2, #6, #16, and #91 currently reside.

Is #91 there? It wouldn't bother me at all.

Eventually, I think it will be worn again, but it will be a while, certainly not this generation.
