hahaha I'm always like this but seeing nobody replies on the hockey thread anymore I decided to talk more smack to get going it's so boring here nowadays. I'm worse than Flames fans?? you gotta be kidding me. or you obviously havent met a lot of them. Sometimes the bs Oilers fans give Canucks fans are way worse in no way it is compared to mine. I'd admit I hate the Oilers maybe more so than the Flamers at times but again I hate each NorthWest division team pretty much the same. The reason Im picking on the Oilers is because well yea I dont like them but more so just wanted to tease you since it seems like you're the lone fan here and it's all in good fun.
Im not actually that mean trizz.... right superkarate? HAHA look he's gonna say im mean and Getzlaf sucks -.-
lalalala i bet trizz probably hates me now but it's okay - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRIZZZZ - that's all i wanna say for now.
now back to hockey -
superkarate - I agree with Fitz sucking asss. But what do you expect when Salo is out? That's what sucks about Sami he's injury prone - the groin and his knees if Im correct. As well as Mitchell who suffered a concussion with a hit from Arnott. Some people were calling it a cheap hit and when he went down and was struggling to get to the bench there were no whistle to stop the play >:/ I hear he'll be back soon next week - which is always good news
I'd like Salo resigned but his downside is being too injury prone- and each time he's out it strikes the team badly esp. on the powerplay and blueline. I think this summer's free agency will be a huge consideration for Nonis whether or not to make room to resign or let him walk - considering the team is in tight cap situation as well.
Our D is pretty thin as of now - Ohlund - Bieksa - Krajicek - Bourdon - Fitzpatrick - FITZPATRICK - and Alexander Edler who's been called up to fill in for Sami. I hear the guy is real good and some people even compared him as a young Niklas Lidstrom in the making or something :S I hope he does good.
hey superkarate remember last season after the Olympic break? Our D was as thin as paper and yet we managed to beat the Shames with our Manitoba callups. Although losing your key defencemen is always a bad thing the upside was Bryan Allen, Steve McCarthy, Nolan Baumgartner and the young guys were all able to step up. Although depth was an issue that defensive corp wasn't all that bad if you ask me - as the guys were all able to learn, work to fill in, and improve themselves- in which they did. Bringing in Weinrich and Carney may have added more depth and experience but they were trouble and did more bad to the team than than the good. Eric "I should've retired ages ago" Weinrich was a terrible -13 with 0 points. Ahh let's not mention it.
So the Canucks are in Denver tonight for a showdown with the Avs. With our thin defensive corp. Luongo would've have to stand on his head in order to keep us in the game. I wouldn't be all that surprised if we lose but let's all look forward to a good game and hopefully 2 points.
