Re: Why the Oilers "rebuild" is truly doomed

The Oiler's are doomed because there are 29 other teams in the NHL that are based in cities far* more attractive to play and live in.

*Winnipeg excepted from "far"

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

I don't think it matters where Nash lands to be honest. Unless he is coming into a situation where he is a secondary option he is going to cost any team too much. Nash is sitting 842nd on the NHL's plus/minus column, that is second from last. He has consistently shown himself to be a selfish, one-wa...

Re: GDT - Feb 13, 2012 Coyotes at Vancouver 7PM S-net Pacifi

A very close checking game by both teams. The Canucks top 4 were very tight in their own end and did a good job keeping the Yote's to the outside and then eliminating rebounds and tying up sticks. Brain farts by them were generally safe ones with pucks going to he outside and not up the middle. Luon...

Re: OOTS

Chicago is currently only 5 points up on the 9th place Calgary Flames. Losers of 8 straight, are the wheels coming of in Chi-town? I would think not as they do have a pretty good group over there, a bit thin below the top 4 forwards and top 2 defensemen, but I think they certainly have the tools ne...

Re: OOTS

Just checked the standings and noticed a few things... IF Calgary had managed to beat Phoenix (in regulation) they would now be in 8th spot. Chicago is currently only 5 points up on the 9th place Calgary Flames. Losers of 8 straight, are the wheels coming of in Chi-town? I would think not as they do...

Re: GDT - Feb 9, 2012 at Minnesota Wild 5PM S-NET-P

If Ballard is dealt and Rome stays, and all we get back are depth forwards and a bottom pairing defenseman, Gillis needs to be shot for not firing Vigneault, or at least telling him to smarten the F up in regards to playing favorites with shit players. Ballard was doing fine in Florida, came here, s...

Re: Tim Thomas -- again

Timmy is looking more and more like a headcase. :D When you're a public figure, you can't expect to go and make public comments on Facebook and not expect to have any questions come up about it! Regular ol' non famous people have gotten fired for what they have said or posted (or other people have ...

Re: Tim Thomas -- again

Just watched the clip on TSN. Loved it. I wish we had guys like that on our team, willing to tell the media where to go when they need to let something drop. Thomas is absolutely right to separate the two, he would also be completely in the right if he wanted to talk about that stuff and blend his p...

Re: The Home Stretch & Gearing Up For the Playoffs

Ok, so the ONLY thing he is doing that he was doing last year is winning faceoffs.....and he's not even being utilized in that role as much. On the 4th line we should be seeing a guy that is forechecking hard, which you have just said he is not doing. I think you made the case for his being junk la...

Re: OOTS

So meds... what's your stance on Marchand... do you like him? The Bruins? Do you like them? Well that's a really complicated question Horn..... :look: :P Actually the Bruins were probably my favorite American based team up until Chara became their captain. Still didn't hate them until last year whe...

Re: OOTS

Did anyone catch the Bruins/Sabers game? Killer! Buffalo gave Boston a taste of their own medicine while completely tuning the Bruin's out. The result? The Bruin's hated it. They were off their game, quick to retaliate, made numerous trips to the box, gave up 6 goals and were unable to beat Miller. ...

Re: The Home Stretch & Gearing Up For the Playoffs

So that's your idea of "coddling his starting goaltender"? Leaving him in games that he's getting shelled in? When Luongo (or any goaltender for that matter) gives up 3 or 4 goals early SOFT goals he is hardly getting shelled. We've seen many times where has let in some early shots that he should h...

Re: The Home Stretch & Gearing Up For the Playoffs

The fourth line has been great this year, no other team in the league has a player of Manny's calibre on their 4th line, and I'm wondering if the increased icetime on the 4th line is contributing to fewer injuries throughout the lineup this year. When you remove the injuries still recovering from l...

Re: Trade 1 of the Sedins?

Yeah, this must have been a Farhan sock thread..... His proposals and ideas are that far off in left field most of the time anyways, and I'm betting he knew just how dumb this one was and decided to see what kind of conversation he could drum up so he could give his opinions without seeming like a t...
