#2537267 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by kipwinger on 25 September 2014 - 11:03 AM

Yes, and this is because the league will protect the dirty players. Scrap the instigator rule and leave the policing to the players. If a guy is willing to face the music after running a star then so be it, I agree there's no stopping them, but at least dont protect these clowns. Let there be another Lemieux beatdown. I bet more than a few players would think twice and even change their game. Frankly, it cannot get worse than the current state.



There are "Lemieux" beatdowns all the time.  Not a year goes by that there isn't some big line brawl.  Look up line brawl on youtube and you'll find a TON of them.  And here's the funny part, they usually take place between the same teams.  Buffalo, Boston, Philly, Toronto.  Nobody is using them to keep other teams honest.  They're doing it because they're the types of teams built to do it.  Last year Toronto and Buffalo had a line brawl because John Scott tried to fight Kessel.  And Buffalo acquired John Scott because the year before that Lucic ran over top of Ryan Miller.  This crap just perpetuates itself.

Took a high stick and was bleeding

Most likely done for the season

#2534308 Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Posted by 55fan on 15 August 2014 - 10:25 AM

So initially the idea was you either donated money to ALS research organizations, or you poured a bucket of water on your head. I love how this is catching like wild-fire, but I hope some of these people are sending a check in the mail, too.



Yep.  It's doing some good!

#2533610 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 03 August 2014 - 12:06 PM

 I just don't really understand why he gets as much criticism as he does for what are usually very minor things.

I do. People just don't like to admit it.

I am in no way saying that the people who dislike him here at LGW do so for race-related reasons, but the reality is that prejudice is, unfortunately, alive and well within the hockey community. Does he have a bit of moxie? Sure. But if he were a white Canadian *some* people wouldn't look twice at his actions or have a problem with his "attitude." I don't think there is anything over the top about P.K.'s actions, and he is a young kid who will continue to mature.

Mods, feel free to delete if you think this will stir s*** or incite politics discussions, but I felt it needed to be said.

#2526842 BUF to buy out Christian Ehrhoff

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 29 June 2014 - 10:27 AM

Here's the actual source and link. 


This is a busy time of year in terms of trades/signings/buyouts and there's a lot of rumor and speculation that goes with that.  A proper source and link separates fact from fiction.  Threads without that information will be locked.  It takes two seconds to copy and paste a link.  




BUF has initiated compliance buyout procedures on Christian Ehrhoff. Not official just yet but BUF has begun the process.

#2509942 Best Hits from the Playoff Streak

Posted by _SP_ on 16 April 2014 - 12:04 AM

With good reason.  Some of those looked mighty close to undercutting people, clipping knees, and there's no place in hockey for crushing someone into the boards when they're 4-6 feet away from the side- especially the bench.  That's asking for some serious head/neck/face injuries. Why don't we see them anymore?  Because we now know that hits like that lead to PERMANENT and DETERIORATING brain disorders.  

I get as pumped up as the next guy when I see a crushing hit, but you know what? That's not my brother/father/friend who, thirty years from now, will have a hard time writing his name or remembering mine because of hits like that.

#2494128 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 10 March 2014 - 06:27 PM


I completely agree, and my views on Smith are pretty well established.  But I do recognize that a guy can develop late...particularly in our system.  I was one of the "f*ck Ericsson" folks a couple years ago and I had to eat crow on that.  So I have to at least consider the possibility that Smith could do the same, as much as I hate his stupid face.


#2492923 3/7 GDT: Devils 4 at Red Wings 7

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 07 March 2014 - 09:58 PM




It is scripted, but that doesn't make performing with injuries any easier.  People never seem to understand that.  Wrestlers are tougher than any athletes I can think of when it comes to performing with injuries.  


okay, 4 goal lead, 5 minutes left.. 


Odds of winning?
