#1165825 Would you trade Adam Larsson...

Posted by Marshall on 24 January 2013 - 02:04 PM

This thread is so full of stupid that Pierre fvcking McGuire would say you're over-projecting. Kid doesn't look like the next Niedermayer? Kid isn't cut from the same rock as Stevens? He won't be the next Lidström? THOSE ARE GENERATIONAL PLAYERS, HALL OF FAMERS, LEGENDS. And obviously those other picks from the same draft will turn into the next Lemieux...

Yeah, sometimes top 5 picks don't pan out. In fact, most of them don't pan out according to the Best Possible Player Projection Comparison (which is stupid anyways). Comparing him to other picks from the same draft, because of what they have accomplished is also downright criminal. None of them have played more than 85 games and (hopefully) have more than 10 seasons ahead of them in the league. The amount of "show me now!" in this thread is ridiculous - the kid stepped into the league at least a year ahead of 95% of all d-men and was just fine. What the hell else do you want? Put up 90 points and fondle you at the same time?

As for "you can't improve your skating" is a bunch of horsesh!t. Kid is barely 20 and has plenty of time to fill out his frame and adjust his body. Or maybe you're so naive that you think it's some random deity that grants a player with skills and he can't do anything to change? Ask Gary Roberts about that. If Larsson wants to, he can improve his skating, explosiveness and stride. Even if he doesn't, he's virtually a lock for being a top 4 defenseman with his vision and first pass.

#1157881 Jacob Josefson

Posted by Marshall on 04 December 2012 - 01:36 AM

I'm far from a competent prospect evaluator, but, to me, it seems like Josefson is a boy among men out on the ice. He just seems physically..smaller. Easily intimidated, out muscled, etc

Am I imagining this?

Are you talking about this season? Because then you are imagining it. Or confusing him with Teddy.

It very well could be evidence of global warming.

Can't believe people in the US still need evidence for that. Yeah, it's happening and it is reality.

#1140039 ‏Zach Parise has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Wild

Posted by Marshall on 04 July 2012 - 03:17 PM

"Real_ESPNLeBrun: Lamoriello says Parise told him that if it wasn't about going home to play in Minnesota, he would have stayed in New Jersey"

So why didn't he sign in Minnesota at 12pm on the 1st? Why drag this sh!t out? This is why im annoyed. It was all bullsh!t all along.

Well, maybe he wasn't at that conclusion at noon on the 1st? Stop being nonsensical.

#1125085 Bernier's dive

Posted by Marshall on 28 May 2012 - 05:57 AM

Seems like not too many here actually play hockey or have been in a similar situation.

When a stick comes up that close to your face, that's an instinct reaction. He reflexes like he was hit but afterwards he doesn't fall to the ice in agony and try to sell it. He doesn't dive. Instead, he goes to the bench to get checked out. You can even see him checking his hand; checking to see what the damage was. What is the problem with this call? A reaction to a stick to the face is only justified if there's blood spewing all over the ice?

This, pretty much. If a stick clips you in the visor, you'll throw your head back in fear or out of instinct.

#1122531 Matteau defends his goalie

Posted by Marshall on 22 May 2012 - 09:23 AM

Rupp gave Marty a shot which was no worse than what Kovalchuck did to Callahan.

Goalies are always off limits. Doesn't matter who it is, you don't sucker a goalie, nevermind an unsuspecting player away from the puck...after the whistle is blown to boot.
