Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Yeah, they should have fired him decades ago. But better late than never! :thumbs: I always loved the way Donny roasted Swedes. 8-) Not really a Canucks fan are you? :eh: In comparisson, look at how I did in my yahoo fantasy hockey pool last season: I slayed it in the regular season, ended in first...

Re: Predators @ Canucks – 7:00 PM - Sportsnet

* With Miller off the Pettersson line, Pettersson was taking faceoffs again. He was terrible at it last year. This year he's been okay in limited reps. Last night I dont think he lost one draw clean. Given his hand-eye, his work ethic, and his ability to win pucks in scrums, I think that if he's ta...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Cherry never said, "You people." He said, "Ewe people." Sheeple? How about ram people, or wether-geats, from Gotland? http://www.prisonbreakfreak.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/beowulf_and_grendel_1.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a6/Gotlands_l%C3%A4ns_vapen.svg/594px-Got...

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

Holy fuck the ol buzzard got fired. Joe Warmington: BREAKING- @CoachsCornerDC Don Cherry has been fired by @Sportsnet - story to come. I thin Don Cherry is an idiot but to fire him for this incident is a bit much. Yeah, they should have fired him decades ago. But better late than never! :thumbs:

Re: Predators @ Canucks – 7:00 PM - Sportsnet

If there is a delayed penalty, the the team about to get the PP, has an extra man out and they score, is that a PP goal? Penalty not called technically so I don’t think so They still have the same amount of players, it’s just that they choose to exchange the goalie for another forward, so it’s equa...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

But again Per who has said this? eg Gretzky: It’s clear in those games Gretzky’s seen of Pettersson, he’s been very impressed, as he not only sees a little bit of himself in the 2017 NHL Draft’s fifth-overall pick, but also a little bit of Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby, another one of...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Should a player have more than one NHL season under his belt to be considered 'generational'? Absolutely. Petey has generational talent , but he has yet to prove himself. Just Calder isn't enough. They hand those out every year. He needs a few more trophies - especially Art Ross and Hart - a couple...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

I'd like to think that both Orr and Gretzky were generational, but Orr born in 1948 and Gretzky born in 1961 both qualify as boomers in American terminology. :o That is just weird. In Sweden we definitely consider people born in the 40's as belonging to a different generation than those born in the ...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Yeah, I think we may be talking generational talent. :thumbs: LOL! In my opinion the last actual "generational" talent was Lemieux and there hasnt been one since. That includes Forsberg btw. The term is thrown around so flippantly I thought generational talent meant best of his/her generation? Or p...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

A lot of Swedish hockey players seem to think Pettersson could go down as the greatest Swedish hockey player of all time. That’s generational speak Who has said this? Pretty much everyone. I mean, just look at what he already has achieved, first look at his last (and actually also first) season in ...
