NHL - January 2015

Recommended Posts

So, we're all in love with Mathieu Perreault here.

My sister-in-law has a nephew with that name, and he's a bit of a spoiled jerkface, so based on that, I can never fully embrace any Perrault love.

If you get a chance, check out Red Wings rookie Teemu Pulkkinen. He's a right winger with a ridiculous shot. Has a lot of the same mannerisms of a Brett Hull in the way he moves in the offensive zone. Obviously, he's nowhere near that level yet - he's not even gotten his first goal yet - but similar style. And that shot. Holy cow.

Also, Buffalo retired the Dominator's number the other night. He gave a terrific little speech and the whole was just generally really nice. Nice touch doing it when Detroit was in town given his tenures with the Wings.

The highlight packages of Hasek saves making the rounds the last couple days have been just amazing.

 

What a strange, strange goalie. Might have the worst technique of any goalie I've ever seen. Could literally barely stand on skates. But so much natural ability, flexibility, almost unnatural reflexes, and a will to compete. Just scary when he got into the zone.

 

There will never be another player quite like him.

 

 

Sorry there are Nagano highlights in there. I'm still not over that. Fuck.

Outshot 46-22, lose 70% of the faceoffs, give up 7 powerplays, win 2-1. Okie doke. I'm not sure who replaced Ondrej Pavelec with an imposter this year, but I'd like to thank them.

 

Also found out that TSN's Brian Engblom does not understand octopi. "Pavelec is like an octopus on the ice. SEVEN arms and legs!" So close, Brian, so close.

Dallas' scoreboard operator continues to be great.

Did you post their original joshing in the December thread and I missed it? If so, I suck and I'm sorry. I had to look up what they originally said.

Hahaha, no I didn't. I'm pretty sure someone did though. There's been a few times the Stars scoreboard has popped up this year with amusing needling of the opponents.

I'm waiting for Stars Scoreboard Man to tell Glass Banging Season Ticket Guy behind the "left" net on TV what to do with himself then he'll be league MVP.

It'd be fine if it didn't have the damned hashtag.

That Hasek highlights video is great. The Olympic stop on Lindros was just inhuman. What's funny is there's like a billion highlights from one single game from his time in Chicago (vs Pittsburgh) - a game where he still gave up 4 goals. How horrible was Chicago's defense that year? Good grief.

I loved Dom when he was in Detroit. He drove you crazy but he got the job done. And he got us a Cup.

And I still crack up every time I see the highlight of him dumping Gaborik on his head and getting a penalty.

Fuck yo Blackhawks.

 

Jets continue to own Chicago in Chicago.

 

Also, fuck Dan Carcillo. How is that useless ass still in the league?

You lot need to make the playoffs and upset a team or two, for real.

The Jets aren't going to have any players left by the playoffs. Plus, relying on Pavelec or Hutchison to save their bacon a couple times a week is going to blow up in their faces eventually.

Fucking Panthers.

 

When they inevitably miss the playoffs again this is a loss that can be pointed to as being one of the causes.

Todd Nelson actually let Yakupov play in the shootout so he'll probably be fired for being not a complete fucking idiot.

Great win for Detroit tonight over Nashville, dominating from start to finish, 5-2. Some crazy bounces turned into goals and Z scored from below the goal line, banking one in off the back of the goalie's head. Fun game to watch!

I think Rob will need to borrow the "fucking hurricanes" gimmick tonight.

That's my gimmick!

 

Also, as much as I like watching the Hurricanes win, I know that this is going to help them not get one of the top 2 picks.

 

Fucking Hurricanes.

 

But how great was Eric Staal shooting that puck past Phanuef for the empty netter? That was a "fuck you" goal.

Speaking of Staal's - the Rangers and Marc agree to a 6 year extension, $5.7 million a year
