You're like the guy who's pining over some girl that left him and can't bear to hear his buddies make fun of her.
I'm sorry, but most of us don't want to sit around slitting our wrists and saying "man I really miss Zach and Kovy" all day. Nobody says they don't want Zach. They said they don't want Zach for 13 years. Big difference.
This team has been put together a certain way from the goal out with defensively responsible forwards for 25 years. It very rarely has flashy forwards. Why would you pick a team that so clearly is against your preferred style of hockey?
youre going around everything i said buddy. means you have nothing to say about it i assume
Jesus Christ, how many walls have people put their fists through walls reading yours and Mike Brown's posts in the past year?
"Streak" of missing the playoffs? fvcking really? He was here in 2013 when they missed the playoffs, remember? So they missed the playoffs once since he left...that's now a "streak"?! And yeah, Kovy was sure awesome in 2013 (no, he wasn't). And awesome again in 2014, when he wasn't exactly lighting it up in the KHL. Stop living in 2012 and stop blowing Kovy up to be more than he was.
Yeah Parise was missing and EVERYONE sucked that year. Who caried the team almost back in the playoffs in the 2nd half? who? yeah thats right.
back then we we're praising the guy. Now that he's gone, its like he was a fvcking useless bum?
Even if he was not to your "level of awesome" he was better than any other player on the team, so acting as if he's not useful ? give me a break
No offense, but sometimes I wonder why you're not a Chicago or Pittsburgh fan. You constantly bemoan the team's lack of speed and flashy offense, but that's not the kind of game this team plays. The team and PDB's system negates speed and is built on quality 5v5 play where our offense comes from zone time, which is gained by forechecking hard and good play along the boards. These are both things Kovy wasn't particularly good at.
It just seems to me that sometimes you're complaining about things that epitomize who this team is. That just doesn't make sense to me.
Listen, with my post i was not "complaining" i was pointing out how ridiculous some posters are now bashing Kovalchuk like he was a fvcking terrible player and that he was not useful at all. He was helping us a LOT and now people are butthurt and will try to convince themselves that he was terrible, which is not true at all.
But the same people will never say a bad thing about Zajac who can barely score 20 goals as a first line center. The double standard on this board is ridic. So many freagin homers / koolaid drinkers here its unreal.
geez some people are so uptight here lol This is the internet folks. Theres people sh!tting in others mouth, videos of people eating toe nails, people getting killed by gorillas... avril lavigne videos...
There's way worst to be shocked about than buddie's thread title lol
I didn't mean to imply race really had anything to do with it - I just think the results speak for themselves.
If you have a choice of picking an apple from three trees (to keep it simple), and you've picked quite a few rotten ones from tree A, why would you feel inclined to keep picking apples from that first tree?
we got nothing good out of any trees in the last 10 years. Doesnt really matter at this point
how can i possibly relax, you just acknowledged me, thats huge. Coolest guy on the internet actually acknowledged me. This is unreal. I gotta call a few people, gotta have to take screen shots. Theres no way they'd believe me.
