Ah yes, the Brad Marchand pirouette.

Fuck that guy.
I have watched that video multiple times and I'm just not seeing a head-shot. Looks like brushing past his shoulder and Marchand does his dance.

How the hell is that a suspension?

Marchand did his usual bullshit dance. When he really got tagged earlier in the year some people online were saying we should have compassion for the weasel. Fuck that. Take his punk head off.

Wtf is this new All Ster game format? :lol:

Oh well, it can't be any worse than it already is I suppose.

The league in general is boring this year. Bad hockey from an entertainment perspective, I rarely make it through a period of games not featuring the Canucks.

The Leaves are trying to "sneak Petter Granberg through waivers" according to Friedman.

23-year-old 6'3" 205lb SWEDISH (hi Meds) physical RS shutdown dee.

Just returning now from a torn Achilles tendon in June.

Revenge for plucking Corrado?? :twisted:

Seriously, though, with the way Weber + Bart have been playing...

WHAT SAY YOU??

Did I mention he plays the right side?

Well Nashville claimed him.

Yeah, Strangelove and the Preds know a good defencemen when they see one!

(or Strangelove and the Preds are interested in screwing over the Leaves)

Y'know, for a "rebuilding" team, the Leaves have let a lot of young players slip away.

Thanks for all the feedback folks! Image

I wonder if Benning put in a claim for him as Nashville is right behind us in the standings...

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Power plays in overtime should be 3-on-2. May as fucking well.
