Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Bette Midler playing in TB tonight, she seems a bit young for the demographic of the city.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

watched that compilation, seems much more likely Kreider just isn't a smart player and can't properly judge his speed and space between him and the goalie than he's running goalies on purpose.

That and he's a huge guy who's probably never been hurt so he doesn't have any of those "this is gonna be bad if I do this" alarm bells until way too late. A couple of those "slide on my ass and cannonball in" seem to be exactly that realization.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

nah he seems like a guy who realizes that it's +++EV to run the other team's goalie, and that the refs basically allow you to do it in this league if anyone touches you along the way. solid angleshooty freeroll for the most part, and at worst if it fails it's 2 minutes against, so *shrug*. he's constantly going right at goalies, and making zero attempt to avoid contact.

and he's at ~no risk of injury unless he crashes into the net or boards, so that's why no "alarm bells".

he's sort of a modern day Glenn Anderson, a player well known for crashing the net. and that was back in the day when the posts were bolted in so it actually was dangerous for the skater too.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

maybe. im probably more inclined to believe it if there are several guys itl who do that sort of thing.

if it's just him out of the whole league then I'm probably gonna say he's kinda dumb rather than kinda smart

kreidah is next generation matt cooke, except he targets goalies. yeah, it's a joke that the league's rules protect the goalies from contact initiated by the goalie, but allow dangerous plays like this.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Kreider is an absolute beast who always goes hard to wherever the play is. LOL at him being dirty and running goalies intentionally.

If Ovi had half of Kreider's heart this series would be over by now.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

its definitely a coincidence that he's been injuring goalies left and right with very similar run ins and "accidents"

One wouldnt expect nhl players to not lose their balance there, or have the depth perception to be able to know where the net is and when to stop. Those two were kind of hard to judge tho imo. He really brings a whole new meaning to crashing the net.

Ya, this. Cooke is the WORST.

I'm excited for the game. Both fanbases represented well here on 2p2 imo. Rooting for the caps because ovi's the man and hope he breaks through. Still cant watch this goal enough from his rookie year:



Makes me sad thinking ovi is probably in the last half of his career already.
