When Kessel came back to "poke the bear" (Scott) I became thankful I wasn't drinking anything because I sure as hell would have spit my drink all over my lap top :lol:lol

I think the initial spears were warranted. He is the BIGGEST guy in the NHL. He plays 5 minutes a night and he's only out there to fight.

I don't think the second spears after the team had jumped in were warranted.

Pretty frustrated with Clarkson too. Dumb move to leave the bench like that. I get it - you want to stand up for your teammates. That, good sir, is a very admirable goal. Just don't cost the team 10 games like you did. Looking like Mike Komisarek already with this new contract of his. Dummy.

Joining the league ASAP.

Just came to post the link to that melee... Late as usual!

First off, pussy move of Scott to even go after Kessel. But to see Kessel running away swinging his stick as he went was just hilarious. Definition of pussy :lol

Miller and Bernier bout was great.

So I got off the phone with my editor. We got to talking about a few things after he gave me my next assignment and we began to discuss hockey. He knows I'm driven by hockey with the blog I run. Well he talked to me about having me do a few Flyers things this season. I won't be a "beat writer" by the literal sense of the term in covering games and what not, but he wants me to preview the season and go up on the home opener and do some pregame stories. We discussed a few things for during the season as well and it seems like this is going to be a big opportunity for me. I'm stoked beyond belief, especially since I'll be doing NHL stuff for a newspaper.

fonzz41 09-23-2013 01:31 AM

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Wouldn't be surprised to see some supplemental discipline for Kessel. There were no big injuries from what we saw, but any time you start using your stick as a weapon with intent to injure, that's big time crossing the line. And it wasn't a little tap or something, it was all out baseball swinging to hurt the guy. And Scott had no place going after a guy of kessel's size, but in no way is using the stick like that warranted.

Like I said before, I'm a really easygoing ref, but that would have been a no questions asked Match penalty for me.

I am good for anytime. Thursday is the one night I don't have a night class haha. But I also don't have any classes on Friday so I am good to go.

I have my draft for my other league tonight at 11pm est!

I am really excited for the start of the season. I am not an NFL football guy at all, and my College team already had their big game against BAMA. The Red Sox are rolling and looking poised to make a run at it too. But at the end of the day, I just love hockey more than anything else!!

I'm for fighting but the stupid shit from Leafs/Sabres is dumb. I mean if John Scott said he was gonna jump Kessel it's just stupid. That has no place in the game because you are just there to hurt a star player. If Phil did something and he had to answer for it that's one thing, but even then, you don't send a guy like Scott after him. You make it somewhat of an even fight.

The preseason stuff can be dumb overall too though. It's just guys trying to make a name for themselves and they rarely make the teams. Saw it in the Wings/Bruins game in Boston a few nights ago. Some guy just going after Kindl for no reason trying to pick a fight and Kindl just shoved him away and eventually they had a little fight but there was no reason for it.

Of course I'm biased but 23rd for the Wings? When the team was healthy we saw how good they could be down the stretch and in the playoffs. Add Alfie, Weiss and Helm along with a more experience D they'll be better than last year.

Also the Oilers at 96 points???? I just looked at who wrote it. Who is that guy? It's not Pierre or Burnside so it's not worth the look. Plus only one team over 100 points? In 2012 we had 10. Plus the Wild 2nd to last in the league?

Dear "Rulies",

What are the thoughts on this scenario I've seen proposed a couple times yesterday....

Due to the stupid rule that Clarkson can still play in the pre-season, before his 10 game suspension kicks in....what is stopping the team from playing him, and then he somehow gets "hurt" for roughly, let's say 10-games. The Leafs put him on the LTIR, thus removing his salary from the cap for that time, and as such eases up the Leafs cap pains.

Kosher or not? Did I explain that well enough? I always hated English class...

Is there a rule where you can't be on LTIR if suspended? I don't know but I would think there is. Is he suspended without pay? I know that makes no difference to salary cap but if he is on LTIR he gets his money right? I don't think you can have it both ways.

They have 1 team projected to get 100+ pts. They are regressing things a lot. Top of the list is probably about right but the middle is pretty mystifying. Wings/Nucks/Sharks way too low.

I remember a couple years ago Dan Carcillo had to face a 10 game suspension (or 5 games, I don't remember) after this hit:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_T2cjRHgb8

Carcillo obviously hurt himself on the play, and actually ended up being out for the remainder of the season (thank god). Anyway, reason for the story is that he had to serve his suspension time before the Hawks could put him on IR.

It's a nice thought as a loophole, but unfortunately for the Leafs, they've already taken care of that one. Can't go on IR until you serve your suspension...OR you can go on IR but then you have to serve your suspension when you are taken off.

Not really sure how ESPN has my Rangers at #2 when that have a new coach, new system, and have not resigned their arguably best offensive player yet.

I'll take it, but I don't expect the Rangers to be that high at the end of the season by any means. Playoffs, sure, but I doubt they will enter that high up.

Rangers were a good and unlucky team last year. Maybe they don't have a ton of explosive high-end forwards but it's a solid group led by Nash/Callahan/Brassard and Stepan (he'll sign eventually).

LOL. Again I don't know who that guy even is. It's not LeBrun or Burnside who are pretty good. They must have assigned some random internt who has never watched hockey before. If the placing of teams wasn't bad enough, like I mentioned earlier, only one team over 100 points when our last full season had 10 teams over 100.

I think that's close to what the Wings were offering on July 5th. Devils give him more of a shot at the top-6 though and Wings couldn't promise him that with Weiss and Alfie coming in.

Would have liked to have kept him but it was his choice.

Wow... Ron Rolston fined for "player selection"... for sending Jon Scott out before the brawl. This league is doing absolutely everything it can to eliminate fighting without actually saying they are trying to eliminate fighting.

3 preseason games for Kessel turning his stick into a weapon. No regular season games... sheesh. Isn't it like a reward to not have to play during the pre-season?

Rolston didn't even send Scott out. Scott was on the ice for Tropp's goal and Tropp's fight. And to top it off Toronto had last line changes and saw that they were leaving Scott on the ice. Dumb.

Shanny doesn't even Kessel's spear at the end...... what a joke.

(I thought he'd get a regular season game or two, nothing crazy. First-time offender by their standards....)

This is what got me.... Buffalo didn't even have the last change. As Proteau said, he's being fined for breaking a rule that doesn't exist.

Kessel should have gotten at least a couple of regular season games. The bad precedent continues: kassian (deservedly) gets 5 regular season games and Kessel gets zero for stick swinging incidents, one being reckless and the other calculated. The biggest difference? Injury. Terrible precedent being set.

so any way we can push back the draft a few hours, or no?

Looking like the Stepan deal will be 6.5 for 2 years.

Transition contract. Would like to see him locked up for a few more years. The Rangers are weak at Center right now. I believe there will probably be a trade at some point to create more depth up the middle. Maybe Richards has a better year, but you can't count on that.

Richards might be falling off but Stepan and Brassard are a solid 1-2 punch. We also have quite a list of veterans and young players fighting for the 4th line spot...Lindberg, Miller, Boyle, Dom Moore, Powe

Welcome Ella Rose to the Brown family! I can't believe they had a girl, it was a surprise and everyone thought they were for sure going to have another boy. Dustin posted "didn't see this coming..." On twitter which caused a lot of speculation on the kings fan site if he was being traded :lol

EA Sports picks STL to win the Cup :lol

they picked the Rangers last year, and I believe the Penguins when the playoffs actually started. Good choices.

Franson signs for one year 2 million dollars. This will create a world of hurt for the Leafs this upcoming off season.

Oh boy will it ever. Something like 5 of their top 6 d-man expiring at the years end of something like that? Not to mention Kessel, Bolland, Kulemin, Raymond....

I don't think that that is going to happen. I could probably do an hour. But to be honest, I don't want to have to skip a draft of a league i'm commissioning.

Also. We need one more person to make it an even 12. Lets hear it guys. It doesn't take too much to run a team. You can do it in minutes a day.

I am also for keeping the time. I have my other fantasy draft at 9pm EDT. So moving it back would mean I was trying to manage two drafts at once haha.

Did we decide if we are implementing hits in our league?

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
You got me right as i'm getting home.

I added in games started for goalies. For skaters I added face off wins and hits.

1 hour until the draft. We need one more person otherwise I have to drop the last person added.

someone needs to join in 5 minutes or i have to drop seans team.

Harrycaray 09-26-2013 07:43 PM

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
I just joined in. There should be an even 12 now.

waterboy100 09-26-2013 07:43 PM

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
cool. thanks harrycaray. we draft in 15 minutes.

since there are only 12 teams i also threw in a flex position. Why not with a smaller league.

edit: wow. somehow the league changed itself to an autopick draft. glad i caught that.
edit 2. fuck. since we didnt fill up the league in time, the draft cant be at 7EST. The earliest time is 9:00 EST.
