Donald Brashear signs with MODO....;)


MODO has a young player on the team....he's getting pushed around...intimdated....Forsberg had enough.


- Donald is a game which we in the current situation does not have. He will not produce a lot of goals but will add physical gaming and security, says MODO Hockey's assistant GM Peter Forsberg.


Intimdation will never be able to removed from the game.....neither will fighting. Its just the way it is....

Yep. They changed their philosophy...went less tough....more skill. But kept the old school Carlyle around. That was a mistake.

Man.....this is the kind of hockey I love......


The kind of hockey the separates the men from the boys..........


Because this game.....is all about who wants it most.


Two struggling clubs..........


Flyers coming in on two game losing streak.........


The Rangers coming in on three game losing streak...and to boot....coming off one of their most pathetic efforts in recent memory. The Tampa game was an outright disgrace. 


Puck drop in an hour...........


We're going to see what kind of team......what kind of coach......we have tonight.


Time to man up......step up.....and play some prideful hockey in front of your fans....against one of your most hated rivals.


If this team can't come out flying tonight......hitting everything in sight........playing with some heart and emotion....some freaking passion.....then there is something dreadfully wrong.


Sure, I played in a different era in hockey....a wilder time....a tougher time......


And if ever a team needed to play a game like it was the 1980's and early 90's.......it's this Rangers club.


Because those wild game.....vicious hitting.....a few fights....hell....why not....a line brawl......it brings a team closer together. It builds chemistry....hardens a team...makes them tougher.


I haven't done it in a very long time.....but my picture of Darren Langdon and me.....it leaves the living room.....and comes into the bedroom......on my night stand....facing the TV.


The Rangers can't turn back time and redo that Tampa game......but they can show up tonight.......and play with some passion and desire......


Lace'em up tight boys......the Flyers are in town.  Wanna make up for that Tampa game.....how about a little "old time" hockey tonight? Some grit and toughness.......do it for your fans.....defend your home ice against a hated foe.


Tonight......Two teams enter.....one team leaves........victorious.


Get it done boys.


Joe....do that thing you do....and release that F****** Squirrel!!! The Flyers are here!!!!!!

Now you're talking kiddo. Giroux's back hurts.......damn.....first chance you get....you test him out. Make it clean.....but see if he can play through it.


And if I'm a Flyer.....I'm making sure that doesn't happen.....or do my my best to keep it to a minimum. 


Hockey....a game of skill and beauty......and intimidation and imposing your will on your opponent.


Man, I love this F****** sport!!!!!!!!

Great post. Man...I can post for hours just on this topic alone. There have been times when as an enforcer....I let hit hits go.....other hits I challenged immediately.  Had my nose badly broken after a clean hip check....that hip check ended a young player's promising career.  The opposing team's enforcer was on the ice....he suckered me from behind..."code violation"....it lead to a very bloody brawl at the end of the game. Long story to that one......


The word enforcer...what do we enforce? Certain unwritten rules and codes.....


Remember the movie the Departed... think of the guy who stops the fight as an enforcer.....think the character's name was Frenchy.......


" Well, I'm the guy that tells you that there are guys you can hit....and there's guys you can't"


Sure...hitting is part of the game. Hitting wears down your opponent....big clean hits can wear down and intimidate your opponent.....and even hurt your opponent. That's why some big clean hits are challenged immediately. It's a message being sent....intimidation. This is the thing about hockey that they will never be able to get rid of..........


Anyways....here's the Departed clip......

The Rangers, under Torts....were like sandpaper. There was a grittiness about them. Sandpaper like coach......sandpaper like team. 


Sure, I wasn't a huge fan of creating off the counter.....I'm a fan of uptempo hockey.....but with some snarl to it.


Now we have an uptempo, attack system. But what's this team's persona? How would you describe them? Under Torts....they were tough....gritty.


Under AV?

I liked Torts....but if there's a way to look back at my posts....I posted, I believe during the Boston series that maybe it was time for him to go. He lost "the physical aspect" of the club. 


I wasn't shocked when he got canned. My worry was that the Rangers would have a "knee jerk" reaction....and go all the way to other side of the spectrum.....from abrasive "hands  on" Torts"....to the passive "hands off" coach".....


And that's what they did....

Never liked the AV hiring....and I don't like him as a Coach. Too hands off...too passive. It doesn't happen all the time...but sometimes a team's play will mimic their coach's demeanor. Personally, I always preferred a nasty, fiery, in your face coach. I never minded being yelled at or chewed out for my mistakes.  And our pre-game talks.....damn...a couple of coaches I had.....you would crawl naked over broken glass for them.......they would just get you so pumped up before a game.


The Tampa game....that's all on the Coach. That team was not there to play hockey. They were not ready to play the game.  They mailed it in....it was a complete and utter no-show.


A few weeks back i posted that AV should bag skate a few players....especially the D corp. It's one thing to get beat...but the mental mistakes....the D Corp has been in a fog for most of the year.


Anyone on this board who has ever played hockey...at some point or another...bag skated.....not a lot of fun. 


Hell, Mike Keenan made his Ranger squad puke quite a few times during practice....they didnt call him "iron mike"...for no reason.


Passion and emotion....big part of hockey. Play a passionless or emotionless game hockey game.....you'll be on the losing end every single time.


Don't know if the Flyers still have those words in the locker room painted on the wall...players see it every time...right before they hit the ice......


" WE SUPPLY EVERYTHING......BUT GUTS."


Where's this team's "guts"?

It's a long season Kevin.........and if we do beat them....so what? Think the Pens will of sudden go into the tank because of a November loss?


If this was down the stretch run for the playoffs...i'd understand....but its November.....a lot of hockey left.

Sometimes early in the season....you forgot about the points....did you watch the Pens Jets game the other night? tied game.....they didnt care....it was all out war. People trying to take their heads off.....three fights alone in the third.....

Just a question..........



Why go to another blog? We have a great blog right here....for as long as it lasts. If this blog shuts down eventually, then we can invade other blogs. But going to to other blogs now.....as guys like Neill and others keep it going just for us......


It just seems a little disrespectful. Just my opinion.
