So i was checking the ASG Balloting today.

I found something interesting:

Quote:
Ilya Kovalchuk New Jersey 14,083
Jody Shelley Philadelphia 13,710
Vincent Lecavalier Tampa Bay 13,634
It was a little strange to me that Shelley did not have an asterisk by his name to indicate that he was a write in. This must mean the NHL is aware of his superstar status.

Thank you Shelley for making us all confused about the balloting and happy that you're not in the line up.

Wtf?

If that's some stunt pulled by an opposing fanbase to screw with us, that is awesome.

If that is some Flyers' answer to the Avery debacle, then I think this is the end for the Flyers' fanbase as a whole; I've given up hope.

I am thinking he has 13,710 family members.

My Avatar: Adam Mcquaid. My Username/number: In reference to Adam McQuaid. I checked in here to see your thoughts on the suspension. I'm glad you hate Jody Shelley as much as I do. Would LOVE to see him lose his roster spot. Maybe if you guys are lucky, Adam will pummel Shelley in our next match and he'll be out for the season! All in good fun here though, I come in peace.

I know you're only half serious, but I still wouldn't say I hate Shelley. He seems like a great person and great teammate, but as for hockey skill he leaves much to be desired. You can be damn sure he'll drop with McQuaid if challenged, Jody doesn't come across to me as someone who wouldn't answer the bell for what he has done. Good luck to your Bruins, please tell Tim Thomas to come back down to Earth.

We hate Shelley because of his salary, not for what he brings to the team. If he did it for half his current pay, the entire fan base would probably love him.

I donít hate him and I donít think he is that overpaid. Overpaid yes but not by much. He doesnít add value imo. You want a goon then go get the best or close to it. He takes dumb penalties every game yet he is not held accountable. The coach preaches accountability yet there is none for certain players. JVR, zherdev, carcillo takes dumb penalties like he does they are in the press box.

I used the word hate very lightly, so my apologies. I dont particularly "hate" anybody in this league. Too strong of a word and they're all there for a reason. But I do LOVE Adam McQuaid. So when Jody puts my favorite human in any kind of danger, I add him to my potential "i almost sort of hate you list." And I think I'll tell Timmy to stay where he's at! Thanks though! Good luck guys, it was a great well fought battle from both sides. Cheers to many more.

yeah I wouldn't have as much of a problem with him if he wasn't making over a million. He should be getting like 600k. He is a bettr hockey player than Cote or Boogaard. Also I wish he didnt play every game, and only play against tough teams

Either really cheap, or less years.

If you are an old fighter that sucks at fighting then you don't need to be anywhere near this team.

That is strange. How is Shelley not ahead of Kovalchuk?

I'd be at least a bit OK with shelley if he actually won a fight. If you are paying a fighter anything more than league min, he better win most of his fights. At least cote made nothing, and you could root for him like you would a special needs kid when he had the puck.

The funny part is, 100% of the bolts and debbies fan base appears to have voted once for their players.

Yeah, this is spot on.

I at least thought we were getting a legit heavyweight. Been really disappointed in Shelley's fights.

any chance homer has been watching the past two games as we beat the red-hot pens and the thorn-in-our-side habs? keep carbomb on the 4th line, keep Z in the top 9. keep shelley in the press box, please!


edit: and no one was taking liberties with us (surprise, surprise). malkin made a late hit and got a penalty for it. welcome to the new nhl holmgren

I think Lavi will hold Shelley out until we lose or someone sucks or gets hurt

I agree. He has shown a tendency, both with lines and goaltenders, to go with the hot hand. I don't see how you can immediately insert Shelley back in to the line up with the last two results.
