another thing that i noticed... sometimes i think im paranoid but since i mentioned it some of my friends said they saw it too.
obviously we all came across games were the game clearly decided you we're not winning that game lol. you could do all the cross ice one timer possible and crazy plays you wont be able to score and if you do well the AI will score on his next wrister from the blueline on an unscreened shot.
When that happen you can clearly see that the game won't let you do anything and one weird thing is that sometimes where the puck is, its like there's some kind of radius around the puck that your player can't go if he's going straight on the puck he'll be pushed around as if theres a big invisible bubble around it... its pissing me off.
or when you simply CAN'T score and you finally have a crazy obvious chance to score and the computer decide that you're not... like this... i had to film it.
Holy sh!t....this just actually happened in the Devs-Caps game today. I guess it is possible.
I agree, for Kovalchuk to battle through and somehow manage to play despite this pain is beyond me and a showing of his character. I've been having sciatic nerve problems lately and there are times were I have to stop doing whatever I am doing since the shooting pain into my leg makes it unbearable to walk. I have no idea how the hell this guy skated with something like that.
I'd take 'going home' a little more seriously if he wasn't also getting $98 million for it. People talk like he took a discount to go home
My favorite part is the whole, "he's such a great guy for specifically making sure that him and Suter got the same exact contracts; that Suter didn't get any less money." Oh please...that's called being a spoiled brat...you didn't make Minny underpay you, you made them overpay Suter. Thankfully for them, the Wild are like bad, enabling parents.
Zajac is a nice player not an all-star. Keep that in mind...
IMO Zajac is at perennial all-star level - his style of game just won't get him there that much. He is maybe a top 5 defensive forward in the game today.
Ok, then how 'bout this (in the event Zajac won't re-sign only, of course): call Cheveldaeoff and ask about Enstrom. See if Enstrom would be willing to sign an extension here. If he would, package Zajac and Greene for Enstrom and Little. Thoughts on that? Just spit-balling really.
Yes we have had regular season success. But why weren't these teams good enough to win playoff rounds?!? I feel like they were good regular season teams, but in the end what does that matter? No game results can be "controlled", but you can add playoff type players that will help win postseason games/rounds. I think overall Lou has done a great job, but I am mystified by some of the people that give him a permanent pass, and never question ANYTHING he does....
we all question him sometimes - have you seen the comments on the Barch signing? The difference is that you are being ridiculous.
