>you will witness the death of the >rags meme once they win the cup this season
>he thinks even if the >rags win that would stop people from >rags posting
Which is exactly why shouldn't get so worked up when people post memes. If you win, you win. If you lose it's only meme.
What's the point of watching hockey this season?
The Canucks are going to win the Cup.
''My (favorite) team'' isn't the same as ''we''
"literally-who" before 2012 franchise
Lemme guess, this guy will score 20 goals during the playoffs too, right?
53 regular season 20 payoff sounds about right
Lets see what he says lmao
Why do people hate on the Rangers so much? I'm guessing it's like 2 or three fag autists doing it, but still. I'm not even a Rangers fan but this shit is in every fucking hockey thread.
While I'm at it, generals are gay as fuck and ruined this board
What shall I reply /hoc/?
>Why do people hate on the Rangers so much?
Because they were an 06 team with one of the best goalies of our generation that had the chance of denying the LA Bean Burritos and their lifelong fans a second cup. So fuck 'em.
Who cares the LA got a cup? You're from Canada, you probably know like 2 people total that are bandwaggon Kings fans. You've got a lot of thinking to do if you let fans from other teams fuck with you that much
>tfw you will see a lot of hockey greats die in your lifetime
You were so confident...it was so adorable :3
>not having your team namedropped during Thursday night football
No really, I don't fucking get it either. They won the east and made the playoffs 8 of the last 9 years. I don't understand why people treat them like they're islanders tier.
I have seen people say the United Center not getting in has something to do with the way the Bulls structured the rights with 2K Sports but I don't know what the problem is with the Hurricanes arena.
>Your motto is ''It's in the game''
EA is such a bad company they make the Laffs look like an incredibly well-run franchise with all-star players that makes the finals without fail every year and never goes more than 5 years without winning the cup.
The only thing more certain than the Wings making the playoffs is that EA's hockey games will continue to suck ass.
EA is so full of shit even goons like Lucic are ashamed to be affiliated with it.
Bettman has more honesty, charisma, work ethic, and devotion to the sport than EA, and he opens franchises in fucking Las Vegas.
When the >rags get tired of being made fun of for being the >rags, they just remind themselves they aren't EA, and they don't feel so bad.
If Canada never won Olympic gold and no US franchise ever won the cup, both countries would still be infinitely more successful than EA.
Reminder the next team to bandwagon is Zemgus Girgensons and the Ruffly Sabres.
Im kinda suprised the Sabres do that well but then i remember they have always have some big positive to outweigh any negative like good goaltending or a great draft pool
There wasn't enough >rags posting in the last couple days. It's like garlic to that faggot.
You mad? Hawks are the favorite for me this year.
He was a skinny little shit in the playoffs, now he's Hulk Hogan jr.
>the opinion of a retarded slant eye who spends all his time shitposting on a Taiwanese pedophile cartoon website
>Still playing U18
>Better than Laine and Puljujärvi
> Finnish Leagues
> Not even good enough to keep their best team from leaving
Lliga would be comparable to a major midget league in NA
Don't believe me? Michael Keranen the leagues leading scorer last year can't even make the Wild's AHL team lmao
>all these shit tier countries arguing over who's second best
He will do fine once he gets used to the small rink.
You're talking about an undrafted puff nut who just had a career year.
He would never be able to do that again.
> Not even good enough to keep their best team from leaving
Lel wat? Jokerit were the Laffs of the Liiga, they haven't won shit since ancient times.
Liiga is easily a better league than the AHL.
Is this the same league where Travis Morin just scored 88 points?
And Corey Locke scored 86 points?
Corey fucking Locke sucked so bad in Liiga that he got fired mid season from the worst team in the league.
AHL is a decent development league but 80% of the players there are absolute shit.
>gets BLOWN THE FUCK OUT of the ahl
>gets in his rickshaw and sprints back to finland
>puts up 69 points in 57 games
Are you talking about Steve Kariya?
He would have been a solid NHL player if he wasn't so tiny.
His game was perfect for the big rink.
Despite being a midget, he still managed to play some NHL games, so it's not like he was a talentless scrub.
>can't even crack an AHL lineup
>straps on a paddy hat and moves to finland
>puts up 59 points in 52 games
Are you cherry picking developing young players on purpose or are you just stupid?
>a guy straight from juniors struggles a bit going pro
>finds his game later in Europe and puts up a few good seasons
>developes in to a pretty good hockey player
>assigned to an ahl team
>puts up a 15.55 GAA
>gets butt pummelled so hard he literally leaves the team after one game played
>returns to finland and dominates the league
Because he was making millions in the KHL.
Why would anyone grind it out in the AHL when they have the option to make money in Europe and still land a one way deal in the NHL when they want one?
The Blose have been trying to sign him for 3 years.
>can't even last a full game in the ahl without getting pulled
>returns to Finland and puts up excellent numbers
>Why would anyone grind it out in the AHL when they have the option to make money in Europe and still land a one way deal in the NHL when they want one?
Because if he was actually good, he would excel in the ahl and make an nhl roster.
But yeah, playing seven games and getting one (1) assist is good.
>Riksman was always streaky but when he was on his game, he was good.
Yeah when he played against inferior chinks in finland, he did good.
He got BTFO so hard he quit the team in an actual relevant league.
He's been getting BTFO almost every season everywhere.
He just isn't that good of a goalie consistently.
You should also note that the AHL salaries are shit tier, so if a player feels he isn't close to breaking the NHL, he will bolt if he's smart.
If he was good, he would make the nhl, and get paid.
He's not, (until proven otherwise in a relevant league) so he had to bolt to the KHL where they pay third rate shitlords big money
How many 19 year olds make the NHL right off the bat?
He played those games after a full SM-Liiga season + relegation rounds.
He simply went there to play some playoff games, he was never going to play in the AHL long term.
KHL fan is here.
Have you ever watched KHL?
I don't know how you decided about AHL as 2nd league. Some KHL's top teams can kick ass weak NHL clubs. I am sure that Metallurg Magnitogorsk, Salavat Yulaev, CSKA, SKA, Avangard, Jokerit and Lokomotiv can be stronger than Buffalo, 'Canes, Florida, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and, maybe, some other teams.
If you don't play in America doesn't mean that you are bad player.
If there are would be KHL vs NHL games... I don't think that we would lose all of them. Maybe, one day these leagues will be equal. But it's a question about politics and life in Russia, too. Americans and canadiens can't get it, but you don't understand fucking high level of life of your countries.
KHL is 2nd league of the world. You shouldn't laugh on it. Kuznetsov, Nichushkin, Yakupov, Bobrovsky, Yakupov (yes, he had bad season, but he had an injury, too), Orlov, Tarasenko, Emelin - they wouldn't be good in NHL without KHL's career.
Do you know that some young players (even drafted) sometimes prefer KHL to NHL? It's not only because of money. Yes, we have too big salaries, but didn't you? These guys know that hockey is their life. They want to play with best. THEY DON'T WANT AHL. THEY DON'T WANT ECHL. Why the fuck I should leave my family, friends, girlfriend? Because of AHL career with pathetic thoughts and hopes about NHL two-sided contract?
Sorry for bad English.
He did things the smart way.
He is 26 years old, a multi millionaire, not a single season riding the bus in the AHL and a one way NHL contract in the pocket.
A straight up boss.
>How many 19 year olds make the NHL right off the bat?
All of them that don't suck dick.
The average age of an nhl player is 27.8 years old.
He is going to be 27 within a few months of playing in the nhl.
Lehterä is making the league at 26 because he refused to sign a contract with the Blose, not because he wasn't good enough.
Can't you get that installed in your thick skull?
He was happy playing in the KHL, without the unstable situation in Russia, he or Kontiola would have probably never signed in the NHL.
> Muh 4 teams that get all the talent and win every championship. They are AHL level at best right now and if talent was spread evenly throughout the league like the North American leagues this wouldn't even be a debate
>mfw Lehterä only has to play 2 seasons and he can cash in as a freeagent.
The guy is a real businessman.
He refused to sign because he is dogshit and knew he couldn't make the nhl as evidenced by his incredibly poor play in the ahl.
He could be three years out of his entry level contract and making way more than the KHL will ever pay him.
But instead like a coward he hid in the babby leagues.
>canudians and murricans thinking AHL is anyway a good league
wtf guis :DD
you got a source on the whole "blose trying to sign him for past 3 years" thing?
>A straight up boss.
a straight up boss would have made the NHL when he was like 18. a straight up boss doesnt have to fuck off to the KHL to make money
We prefer word "football".
It's not true. SKA has most of the best european/KHL/ex-NHL players but they suck dick every year. They were beaten by 8th team last time.
Torpedo, Metallurg Novokuznetsk (yes, we have two Metallurg in one league, it is okay for soviet teams), Avtomobilist, Dinamo Riga, Dynamo Minsk - they don't have players like Kovalchuk, Radulov, Sobotka and others, but they can fight with strong teams.
You just don't live here. We have only a few of teams who really weak: Vityaz, Amur, Neftekhimik, Severstal.
>"I had a good chat with him quite honestly at the Olympics at the dining hall," Armstrong said. "I told him that we were disappointed that we couldn't come to an agreement and he said at the end of the day, he felt he made a mistake (staying in Russia)."
>"We'd been dealing with the competition of the KHL and the KHL has been winning up until this year,"
>this canashit coming back only to get BTFO again.
the only reason habs have so many stanley cups is because saku koivu played for them before he had cancer
>gets 15+ replies just for saying one word
Don't even get me started on how wrong you are about the Rangers being irrelevant. A successful team making it to a finals =/= irrelevant
>mfw I traded DiPietro for Kadri a few years ago in my simulated hockey league.
yea i do not play people with a guest but me and my buddy like to play together. It is not like people are forced to play against us cause it shows before the match that there is a guest, so i agree it can be cheap but you are not forced to do it
There he is. There he goes again
Look everyone he posted it once again! Isn't he just the funniest guy around?? Oh my god.
I can almost see your pathetic overweight frame glowing in the dark lit by your computer screen which is the only source of light in your room giggling like a little girl as you once again type your little '>RAGS' thread up and fill in the captcha. Or maybe you don’t even fill in the captcha, maybe you’re such a disgusting NEET that you actually paid for a 4chan pass so you just choose the picture. Oh we all know the picture, the epic Padqvist picture isn’t it? I imagine you, little shit, laughing so hard as you click it that you drop your Doritos onto the floor. But its ok, your mother will clean it up in the morning. Oh that’s right, did I fail to mention? You live with your mother! You’re a fat fucking fuck up and she’s probably so sick of you already. So sick of having to do everything for you all god damn day, every day, for a grown man who spends all his time on 4chan posting about a dumb /hoc/ meme. Just imagine this, she had you and then she thought you were going to be a scientist or an astronaut or something grand and then you became a NEET. A pathetic shitposting hockey NEET. She probably cries herself to sleep everyday thinking about how bad it is and how she wishes she could just disappear. She can’t even talk try to you because all you say is "SHIT TEAM, SHIT FANS, SHIT FRANCHISE".
You became a parody of your own self. And that’s all you are. A sad little man laughing in the dark by himself as he prepares to indulge in the same old dance that he’s done a million times now.
And that’s all you’ll ever be.

I've literally posted 2 (two) pictures of Messier with the cup in the entire time I've been using this trip.
How does it feel to be a dumb motherfucker? I wanna know.
Alright /hoc/ which shirt is most likely to get me laid tonight?
Pavel fuckin Datsyuk is the best player in the entire NHL fucking deal with it.

Why do Americans think that bothers us??
Am I expected to give a shit about the Deadmonton Coilers? Or the Lames? Or the Senaturds? Or any of the shitty fucking Canadian teams other than the glorious Leafs? Seriously?
Such jingoistic fucks you Americans can be.
>the glorious Leafs
pls be b8

You guys need to get a hobby. Go out and play some hockey or something. I'm concerned for your mental health. Saying the same things over and over is a sign of insanity.
no, he is literal dogshit
for an analogy: have you ever seen The Nightmare Before Christmas?
The Oogie Boogie guy is basically a sack filled with a bunch of bugs. If you cut the sack open, all the bugs fall out.
John Scott is like that - if you cut him open, you'd see that he's just dogshit with a fleshy exterior.
no fucking shit sherlock
still no samefag though
I promise it's not.

Nice #REKTage, but It's a serious question.
I'm genuinely curious what an event that attracts over-sexualized cosplayers is like in the state that was founded by polygamist religious zealots yet is #1 in online sex toy sales.
Put your mother in a straight-jacket you punk ass white boy. Come here and tell me that, I'll fuk you in your ass you punk white boy. You phaggot. You can't touch me, you're not man enough. I'll eat your assshole alive, you bitch. C'mon anybody in here can't fuk with this. This is the ultimate, man. Fuk you, you ho. Come and say it to my face.... I'll fuk you in the ass in front of everybody. You bitch.... come on, you bitch. You're scared coward, you're not man enough to fuk with me. You can't last two minutes in my world, bitch.

pens are WAY overrated, and so is their coach...they could very easily fuck it up; as they've done in the past

Oh shit, I didn't know he was cleared to play. I heard he broke his leg or some shit in the playoffs.
It'll be fun to see how Petan will do. He's dominating the juniors pretty hard, but he's a manlet.
Speaking of manlets, also will be interested to see Ehlers and what he can do.
Already pretty sure Morrissey is gonna be a beast in a couple years. Lowry will hopefully replace some of the trash on the Jets bottom 6.
