Selected by the fans my ass! It will be as much selected by the fans as the current monstrosity was.
And on an aside, regarding this new ownership group, was Jagr ever honored for his 700th goal? JVB would have given him the ol' painting and benz in a pre-game ceremony. Did the new owners ever even acknowledge his major milestone?
Unless you've achieved an all time mark in a category, 500 goals, 1000 points, 1000 games played are considered the most common "honored" milestones of one's career in the NHL.
Some of you will continue to stop at nothing to point fingers at the owners. What's next? Not giving Jagr a cake and a birthday party for turning 42?
You need to let go of your "All the posters on here who criticize me are pompous" complex. Why do you complain so much about this? I merely stated a fact that you WERE NOT here during the Parise ordeal and DF118 was, and that's where he's coming from. You weren't here discussing it, and clearly don't have the information. Your post didn't add anything. You just responded to me by mimicking what DR33 said and as if it were fact. DR33 can post something like he did without blinking because he has credibility established on this board with all of us - a lot more than me - which he built up over the course of 12 years of posting. If he says, that there is 0 evidence then we generally assume he's done the research because we know his history. You don't have the credibility and it's not good form to lead with an attitude, I should know, I had that problem once... hell, I still have a little snark in my posting style.
There is nothing to 'pick apart' from that quote. There is nothing to assume. It is very straightforward, they were in contact up until the Stanley Cup Final at least in some regard, and possibly during that time too but to a lesser extent.
You are wrong, you spoke about what you don't know and being called out for it has made you upset and so now you are going about YOUR 'pompous' business where anyone who doesn't like Red Storm's attitude, obviously is on their 'high horse.'
In response to the edit you made: I don't have to show you that. No one is claiming to have that evidence. The evidence provided is enough to substantiate the simple point that was made. You claimed that no evidence existed and it does. This is a desperate attempt. It's now on you to show me something where Parise contradicts my quote. That's how board discussion is done.
Once again, the lecturing and the whining about this "caste" system you have developed in your head and using it as a platform to preach from to dismiss others, put them down or discredit them.
How board discussions are done, huh? So when i ask for you to provide FACTS, not assumptions, regarding Zach Parise you say "i don't have to show you that" and ask for ME to contradict you instead. LOL....
We know you don't like Lou, but you can't pretend the owners did this on their own and that it had nothing to do with him. The league wanting to not punish new owners makes sense, but Lou clearly had a big hand in this.
No one is pretending that Lou didn't have anything to do with it, but the owners were the ones who initiated it and followed it through. I don't know what the problem is with giving them credit where credit is due.
“There’s no question we’re pleased with the decision by the league,” :Lamoriello said. “The appeal for reconsideration was made by new ownership and there was a hearing and the decision was made today.” - See more at: http://blogs.northje...h.YMlMAmpc.dpuf
So, people can go batsh!t crazy towards the new ownership over the song/chant but i don't see anyone giving Harris and Blitzer any sort of credit at all for doing this and taking the initiative. So much for they don't care.
Of course he didn't do anything wrong - I'm just trying to help a new member get accustomed to the policies of the board. There's no 'intimidation' here, it's a general policy to not create new threads when one already exists about a certain topic just so things don't get cluttered. Just giving him a heads up for future reference.
Why must EVERYTHING be a confrontation with you? It's like you come on here looking for fights..
There's no confrontation here. You went looking to play junior moderator and i said to Sullivan don't let these guys intimidate you. If you can find the confrontation there, feel free to point it out.
