Around the NHL Thread
 
I guess the playoffs thread was closed and a new one hasn't been made. I was looking for it to post this, which I found on the main boards:

http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/06/2...of-nba-finals/

Quote:

“Lebron James is embarrassing himself and the NBA or actually all athletes,” tweeted Ryan Potulny, a forward in the Washington Capitals system.

“I wonder what kind of face LeBron would make if he took a slapper off the laces?” wondered former Bruin and current Jet Blake Wheeler.

“We get it Lebron, it doesn’t hurt when you’re running around but it looks unbearable when the cameras are close up during the timeouts,” wrote Nick Bonino, former BU player and current Anaheim Duck.

“What a gutsy performance by lebron #not” wrote Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski.

“Oh my god guys, Lebron has a cramp, everyone get on their feet, standing O for somehow staying in the game,” wrote Scott Valentine of the Milwaukee Admirals, the AHL affiliate of the Nashville Predators, before sarcastically adding, “If Lebron somehow manages to pull off winning a ring after fighting through a thigh cramp.. it will be a story I tell my children’s children.”

Taylor Hall, the No. 1 pick of the 2010 NHL Draft, didn’t take a shot directly at LeBron, but rather at the whole sport.

“So much flopping going on.. Wondering what these bball players would do if they got a skate in the face haha,” wrote Hall, who himself received a cut on his face that required 30 stitches this season.

NHL players weren’t the only athletes taking shots at LeBron, as Jordan Lewis, an Australian Rules Football player, though the injury ought to have been serious, considering the way James was acting.

“Anyone heard what Lebron’s injury was??” he tweeted. “I’m tipping Torn hamstring, ACL or dislocated knee cap by the way he was carrying on!!”

The Scott Valentine one just about made my day. Shocking that Taylor Hall's was really *****y.

Potulny representing the Caps there... :laugh:

I ****ing hate no Ovi at the NHL awards.

Steven Stamkos looks like hes high.

Dr John Carlson 06-20-2012 06:37 PM

I really hope there won't be any name-butchering this year.

Carlzner 06-20-2012 06:39 PM

There will be.

They'll mis-pronounce "Jonathan Quick" as "Evgeni Malkin"

Cappy76 06-20-2012 07:03 PM

When will the NHL stop trying to force Nickelback down our throats? :cry:

haha

and yea I agree about Karlsson

Carlzner 06-20-2012 07:11 PM

Karlsson won the Norris?!

Are you ******** me

LetsGoBears 06-20-2012 07:25 PM

Complete ********* that Karlsson won. Green should tell reporters to shove it.

Liberati0n* 06-20-2012 07:28 PM

Maybe if the criteria for the trophy were clearer people could complain about it. There's a fine argument to be made for his "all-around" impact at the position having been the best by a decent margin. The Norris arguments are so tiring. Not sure why you guys are watching. I'll just look up the winners/see them here later.

Also, Nickelback sucks and I'm embarrassed that it seems to be associated with hockey.

Edit: Definitely agree with this though

I can't believe a guy who doesn't even penalty kill won the Norris...

SimplySensational 06-20-2012 07:39 PM

oops, Lindsay award only so far.

2 more buddy and you catch up to Ovi k?

Dr John Carlson 06-20-2012 08:01 PM

Will Arnett has unsurprisingly been the best part so far.

SimplySensational 06-20-2012 08:54 PM

Here it comes, Quick for Vezina. 4 Americans in a row.

um 06-20-2012 09:26 PM

karlsson played a full season unlike green, green would have won in 2009 if he played all 82

Foy 06-20-2012 11:13 PM

So Ovy lost out on the All-Star team to a guy that didn't play the position he was elected to, and a guy that couldn't hold his jock strap. Hilarious.

Josh Rimer ‏@JoshRimerHockey
Bill Watters just said on Nite Cap w/ Josh Rimer that Zach Parise will be an Los Angeles King July 1st!!

fwiw.

Chimaera 06-20-2012 11:45 PM

Mike Green got screwed!

Brad Tolliver 06-21-2012 12:54 AM

Karlsson covered the field by at least 25 points. Green wasn't up by more than 10 in either of his Norris nomination years.

Quick was the one who got screwed.

Yeah one pleasant thing about the season being over is not having to turn on NHL Tonight every morning and having to listen to them...

RandyHolt 06-21-2012 10:24 AM

I do think its funny they made fun of Shanahan. It wouldnt be funny though, if his policing of the league wasnt a joke in the first place

9 million dollar forwards who aren't close to a PPG aren't usually invited
