2013 General chat.
« on: January 21, 2013, 01:06:22 PM »
I know there is a 2012/2013 general but Ill start a new thread for the sake of it... It is a shortened season afterall and there was no play in 2012...


Watching a few of the games this past few days I can clearly see who the players who went overseas are. They, almost all, seem to be a step or two ahead of the non-playing guys..


Goaltending everywhere seems to be a little sketchy.


Watching the Pens games, both James Neal and Malkin are both pretty incredible players.
Malkin makes hockey look so easy.
Another notable for their team is Tyler Kennedy. Does that guy ever zip around the ice and make things happen (also a pending UFA).

In Ottawa's case, Neil and Anderson were pretty good for guys that didn't play this winter. Alfie was so-so and Phillips was, sadly, pretty bad.

 :icon_agree: that Neil surprised me considering he stayed home during lockout and Anderson didn't look out of place for someone who hadn't  been in a game situation for over eight months, I think it was.  Phillips was not great, for sure, but positionally he wasn't too bad, since his speed (and he never had a lot of it) has degraded in recent years.  Did Zack Smith play for anyone during the lockout?  He was zipping around pretty good Saturday afternoon too, IMHO.

I'm pretty sure Smith wasn't playing with anyone Rose, that's worth noting anyway.

I thought I heard Potvin or Brown, tonight, mention that Smith played in Europe during the lockout but then I didn't hear where.  Either way, he had another strong game tonight. :thumbsup:

Tough guy.  Blood dripping down his face and he's still talking while the trainer or w/e is squirting something up his nose.

Stupid Russian players.  Only in that place can you actually think you'll be okay crosschecking a ref.

Speaking of "losers"......Ottawa management has to do something to keep the obnoxious Toronto fans from keeping the fed-up Ottawa fans out of their own building.  And instead of calling out Ottawa fans for not supporting their team, one has to actually sit in SBP while Leafs fans are there to know how much one does not want to waste their hard-earned money being verbally hassled by THOSE morons.  Not one fan in this household will even attend a game here in town when Toronto is here.  THAT is why management has done this.....they've heard it way too often.  Partial season ticket holders ask that Leafs games NOT be in their package.  :shake:

But, then, this is a SUN news report....speaking of pathetic losers and morons...........
