@wiski @Pent_House yea definitely hard to manage 3 languages, and like you said, I knwo you;re a real polak so you're burning brain cells just like me lol check out nikodem dyzman, it's jokes and you should be able to find a version with english subs. You can get your kids interested a little if you wanted that way.

Career of Nikodem Dyzma - comedy really funny
Ogniem I Mieczm
If you watch em and like em I'll think of some more for ya.
@wiski @Pent_House I bet you did Polak! They fuckin loved westerners visiting, you were probably a celebrity. Don't lose the tongue; watch some movies or read a book something. I couldn't lose it now, but my concern will be making sure my kids whenever down the line, learn it. Especially considering the chick who will have my kids will most likely not be a polka chick. I can recommend some movies for you to download.
@wiski @Pent_House Yea ugo's are supposed to be more like the Finns but they were assimilated into the east slavs. Lots of different peoples got assimilated into us. Trust me russians are slavic extremely, they're just east slavs. You got russians, belarus, kazahks, etc east slavs, west slavs you got polaks, czechs, slovaks. ukrainians are in the middle of east and west slavs. They were part of poland for long time and part of russia for long time. Then you got the south slavs, yugoslavia basically, serbs, croations, slovenia, montenegro, macedonia, and bulgaria.
I was born in poland and I went back every summer for a long time, I talk to my parents in it every day etc. You probably don't get to use it as frequently any more, but if you talk to the other slavs slow, you can understand easy. It's mostly the ending of words are a little different but the root the same, or it sounds like a funny accent. There's a few words here and there which are unique to each language, but majority of words are the same. 1000 years ago there was just one language for em all, and as they migrated, created countries etc it changed a little with slang accent all that bs.
It's kind of nerdy but to be honest I fell in love with the shit. When I was a teen didn't interest me at all, but as I got older I did huge amounts of research, wanted to know my roots etc.
4 days, 1 hour ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
@wiski @Pent_House a lot of slavs went catholic so they used roman letters, and a lot of them went orthodox and use Cyrillic. It's still all the same shit, like they have kurva exact same way, they just have their own letter for K etc. They are as slavic as it gets.
@wiski @Pent_House Since when? lol
@Black_Hawk @Pent_House @wiski oh ya 6'2 or 6'3. It's good to finally see the eastern big boys come out and play hockey. 10 years ago most were gangsters boxers labourers etc.
@wiski @Pent_House I really like Hertl that kid, such a good player. #slavitup Polak
I think LA would probably be better off moving richards and carter too. I think they're over the hill. They don't have that same intensity as they use to. When you look at couture and marleau as a 2nd line it's not even close.
@Cameron19 @Pent_House I'm willing to take the chance. I think he's in scenery change mode right now. He'd have a bigger role with us as well.
I hope this makes D Brown available as a bonus.
@Belfour20/JB-45 @Pent_House fools never differ? ;)
@Belfour20/JB-45 @Pent_House no I didn't even look around when I hopped on.
I think it was a real good move of the league to stop re-seeding and allowing bracketology.
@Cameron19 @Pent_House I think if Toews was healthy they might be able to pull it off but I dunno. Blues are deadly.
my bracket 1st round was:
bruins > wings
blues looking to fuck my shit up
they fore-check, north south, they're huge and skilled, and really fast too. deep D, cup winning goalie. no holes.
this happened game 1 pretty much too, they put jones in last time
they're having fun
@wiski @Pent_House I got them winning the cup in my bracketology. Not sure how much the pot will be but 20+ guys for sure, 20 a sheet, and a lot of guys put in multiple sheets.
* please note I called sharks to win the cup before play offs started
Marlies time, see ya boys.

That nike golf commercial kills me
Daley got caught puck watching
Cogliano was hungry! jeez
@Xxxxxnew @Pent_House I think it was long before that. I think one of our guys was on the block, and that's what the ducks were offering, but we ended up taking some other team's offer or something along those lines. It wasn't a huge rumour, maybe up for a day. Might have even been while maroon was with philly, my minds a blank. Any way what are you going to do. We should have a few of our own maroons on the way shortly.
6 days, 2 hours ago on Four Questions on Peter Laviolette
@Xxxxxnew Kid can play. I know he was offered to us, or there were some rumours with him coming to Toronto, I just can't remember what the hell the details were. I couldn't find shit online either. He's a giant.
@Xxxxxnew @Pent_House I wouldn't be surprised if one or two of these guys play in the later rounds after the Marlies have some injuries accumulate.
@TuckerWantsDougieForGM lmaooooooooo atta boy luc. I think the Perry nut spear was worse tho lol
@Xxxxxnew @Pent_House I really believe the practising with the pro's and being around the team etc is really beneficial. Almost all the current Marlies have done it, seems like they all come in prepared and comfortable when they finally join the team.
@Xxxxxnew I'd be surprised if gets to play. Maybe the last game here on the 4th line or something since Marlies already clinched division, but I'd be really surprised if he saw any action in the play-offs
@.JVR. @Pent_House I can see the speed angle but other than that not much similar. Different style of game, different team construction, different systems etc.
@rustynail @Pent_House @.JVR. dirtiest team in the league, being exempt would help
@.JVR. @rustynail i wish the leafs were
@.JVR. they're not similar though lol
6 days, 3 hours ago on Four Questions on Peter Laviolette
@ShiftyD @Pent_House Yea it was a few years back now. somewhere between 08-10. I think Maroon was still in the AHL at that time, I just can't remember who the ducks were after... I remember because I was intrigued by maroon at the time, now he looks like a sick player. Burke was still GM at the time.
@ShiftyD @Pent_House I cant find it online anywhere, but I remember they wanted to send us maroon for someone, I just wanted to see how stupid we were in not taking the deal.
It's too bad ducks are in that division because they're amazing but they won't pass SJ. If they were in the East they'd be a lock for conference final
does anyone remember who the ducks wanted when they offered us maroon a few years back?
@ingy56 @Pent_House @HHT speak of the devil I actually want to get into coaching asap myself.
1 week ago on NHL Playoffs Round 1 – Open Thread
@ingy56 @HHT appreciate the trust ingy lol lots of people questioning me lately haha.
I can't say I'm a big fan of perlini. He's big but he plays a finnesse game when I see him the few times. Lots of rush, PP scoring, lots of those wacky goals that you see in junior but don't really happen in the pro's. He seems to beneift a lot from verhaeghe as well. Who know's maybe when turning pro he starts to use his size more but he seems risky for me at #8.
@Mind Bomb @Pent_House @ingy56 it's about time duke the dog got a call-up
@Burtonboy @Pent_House @wiski @The_Polish_Cannon @rustynail yea those PPP guys really turned so many people off it. It's unfortunate those guys were the big promoters of it. I thought I could be an arrogant asshole at times but those guys blow me out the water. I look like an altar boy beside em lol
@wiski @Pent_House @Burtonboy @The_Polish_Cannon @rustynail Yea no doubt polak, it's only going to grow from here. I still think some of those stats are flawed, but I do see more value in them then say 2-3 years ago when i thought they were completely useless.
@Burtonboy @The_Polish_Cannon @rustynail I saw Corsi numbers for the first time on TSN last night
@Mind Bomb @Pent_House @ingy56 Definitely a valid point MB, I wouldn't be mad if that's what ended up happening. I've just been changing my mind so much in the last two weeks I find I can't really be decisive on anything any more. I've wanted to tear it down and rebuild, I've thought about just tweaking, I've thought about re-doing the 2nd line, thought about keeping RC and firing him. Keeping Kessel and trading Kessel. I can see validity in a lot of ideas, but I can't even begin to decide what I think would be the best one.
@darthNihilus I don't really trust those giveaway stats, I've seen some rinks treat a dump in for a fore-check as a giveaway, which I don't really think is the spirit of a giveaway.
