#12156557 [Speculation] Bruins could be looking to move Brad Marchand

Posted by pianoman13 on 19 May 2014 - 12:51 PM

I think him and lucic are the only two players (who are productive) that I wouldnt really want on the team. I would be fine with Kieth, brown, doughty, bolland even, all of them. Just would take me a while to get used the those two

#12143502 Does Anyone Have a Mike Santorelli update?

Posted by pianoman13 on 11 May 2014 - 08:59 AM

Agreed.  The rest of the team struggling made Santorelli look better than he really is.  We shouldn't re-sign him.  His spot should go to one of Horvat, Gaunce or Jensen.

Everyone just tosses out stupid statements. Remember the beginning of the year when we won like 15 or 16 games or something?? Santorelli was playing then... it could be argued we started going downhill after he got injured.

#12133572 Tanner Glass: Crosby's leadership style like Sedins

Posted by pianoman13 on 04 May 2014 - 04:33 AM

Sorry, a good leader makes a difference to the team. He leads by example and maybe score some goals when we need it the most (Boston series or the rest of the goaless series we have been through?)

No knock on the Sedins, but he shouldn't be compared to Crosby. Crosby did carry his team to the Stanley Cup.

And if we won one more game in 2011 people would be saying Sedins led the Canucks to a Stanley cup. Not comparing them or anything, but you cant use one game of difference to make a generalized statement like that.

#12083663 [province] Faq to sue two reporters for saying Aquilini's made the Torts...

Posted by pianoman13 on 09 April 2014 - 03:50 PM

It's about time somebody stood up to those Aquilini tyrants and battled for truth and justice. Thanks, media heroes. You're making our season all the better.

This is sarcasm right?? The media is anything but heroes, can't stand the hockey writers.

#12082231 [Rumour] - Isles Interested in Sedins?! *Eklund

Posted by pianoman13 on 09 April 2014 - 03:12 AM

I dont see it being Sedins for Taveres but;
1. Rumour however real or not is Tavares is unhappy
2. Sedins would be much more effective in the east
3. Very similar to my argument about Lou being traded there (made many moons ago), walking into Brooklyn, NYR backyard, they need 'names' to sell, don't discount this.
4. However, if it were to happen, reallistically I would think NYI would want the Sedins as a second line to take pressure of Tavares (keep him as well). There is little 'hockey sense' behind trading a very young superstar for 2 aging ones
5. Sedins and Hansen for Strome, Martin, Reinhart, and their first? NYI takes nothing off their roster other than Martin, Nucks take alot of salary away and have rebuilt in one year....
not so unbelievable, clearly the twins would have to accept it but anyone who says players cant be traded wasn't alive when Wayne was traded...
6. Then sign Callahan
Burrows Kelser Kassian
Callahan Strome Jensen
Higgins Santorelli Booth
Martin Richardson Mattias
Hammer / Bieksa
Edler / Tanev
Reinhart / Stanton
Buyout Garrison

Buyout Garrison?? Are you serious?? I was with you till there, but Im sorry the rest loses credibility now for suggesting that lol.

#12072605 Worst Restaurant Delivery Experience Ever

Posted by pianoman13 on 05 April 2014 - 04:52 PM

I am strongly against the idea of tipping. Its gotten to the point where it is basically obligatory, if its basically obligatory why not just include it in the price to begin with? I was in new york last month, and the restaurant adds an 18 percent 'recommended' tip already into the bill at the end, which you can raise or lower, which is ridiculous for me. The whole nature of tipping shouldn't be obligatory. You see something in a menu for 10 dollars. End of the meal at 12 percent for tax, and 15 percent for tip and thats 12.70, 27 percent more than it says in the menu. I live in Paris right now, and that is one thing they got right here. If you see something costs 10 euros in a menu, at the end of the meal, you pay 10 euros. Tax and everything included. That is the way to do it. Having said that when Im in north america I tip between 10 and 15 percent, but always begrudgingly

#12070554 So I've Re-Watched Our 09-11 SC Playoff Runs...

Posted by pianoman13 on 04 April 2014 - 01:32 AM

Good post OP, except for one thing.... Garrison will not be bought out!!!! No way thats happening. Top defencemen for points, 5th on the team, only player to play every game, playing on his off side, and the list goes on. It just boggles my mind that people talk about buying out Garrison...

#12069194 If you could describe your excitement from 1-10 on Horvat/Fox

Posted by pianoman13 on 03 April 2014 - 08:28 AM

What part of '...or trade him just before he peeks' don't you understand when it comes to GM's role.

How can I put it so that your IQ of 15 can understand easier?

Im sure his IQ of 15 can spell 'peak' correctly though

#12065052 David Booth Tweet

Posted by pianoman13 on 01 April 2014 - 10:24 AM

If he would have been smart enough to keep his mouth shut it never would have been a problem. People don't like crap shoved in the their face. Not to hard to understand.

Lol I plused you by accident, probably the last post here I would give a plus to. He never pushes it on anyone, the times he has brought it up is when he has been asked about things in interviews like how he got through his injuries and stuff like that. If you ask a guy questions what do you want him to say? I think that doing what he did is 'smart' being honest with yourself and with others. I am sure Booth would be one of the last people to tell an athiest to 'keep his mouth shut' and stop 'shoving crap' in his face, for talking about their beliefs if there were asked questions that related to it.

No idea why people get so bent out of shape over it

#12027406 Tortorella: "As a coach, this is my responsibility"

Posted by pianoman13 on 12 March 2014 - 11:10 AM

But we can't move on past them because our dumb GM just signed those two Sedins to golden parachute contracts for four more years. (Oh and signed a fat contract himself... Ugh)

I don't think anyone quite gets this. We're not going ANYWHERE or improving AT ALL until those four years are up and the Sedins are gone (unless the graciously retire before that time because they're playing so awful year after year).

I hate stupid comments like this. They have had a bad half a year. Beginning of the year they were fine, last year was fine, year before one of them one the freaking scoring race, and the other the year before. They have been great! They will be fine next year, sure not superstars, but when they are healthy again, remember Henrik was playing injured even before that Hanzal incident. Just stop making stupid knee jerk comments that are false and just use your brain.

Posted by pianoman13 on 07 March 2014 - 06:49 PM

"Moore said the suit was not so much about the money as being compensated for the loss of his dreams."

Interesting..... What exactly is the difference? I must be missing something.

Posted by pianoman13 on 11 February 2014 - 08:53 AM

Good post! I often dont come on here lately because of all the reactionary fans who want to blow everything up. Lets wait till everyone is healthy and see what happens before we make any stupid decisions...
