    If the longest tenured NHL coach can be fired today, most of you bitches can easily be replaced too.

    Let me know when you guys have had enough.... :)

    Heading to Kuhnhenn before going to the Wings game today! Y'all should be jealous!

    Better get very lubed up before heading to the Joe and watch them drop their fifth in a row...

    I'll make sure to use some draft BB4D and Raspberry Eisbock as the lube. Should work wonderfully!

    Sound advice coming from a Sabres fan. Losing gracefully since '70.

    There is nothing graceful about it...lol. I am also a Cubs fan, so winning isn't in my vocabulary.

    I promise I will never make fun of you. You deserve to win some beer. Probably only to have it drop in front of you, with that luck!

    Like I said...ISO Raspberry Eisbock...lol

    Nobody can ever accuse me of hopping on a bandwagon.

    I have a Raspberry Eisbock. But...regardless of your poor choice in fandom, you are still a dickhead, so....Merc is ISO! :cool:

    The KBE is incredible. I couldn't pull the trigger on the bottle though. I think I might have been disowned if I did that.

    I think the first place guy should fly the guy living the longest distance from CL in to have beers. Guy being flown in will pay for said beer and first lap dance on the road trip up to Zanzibar.

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    Zanzibar in NYC or Zanzibar in Toronto??? Its been about 15 years since I have been to Zanzibar in TO but remember the chicks being solid. I will gladly fly the farthest guy in, what's your credit card number?

    I would actually like to get up to Great Lakes (ontario not ohio) and try them out. I have had several of their beers over the past few years and have liked their IPAs. They always seem to find their way down here during Buffalo Cask Fest.

    I am sure the NHL really took into consideration great games like that when they decided to move Detroit to the east.

    You should be happy that you got a PP goal from Kane. At this rate, in 2 weeks, you'll be 4th in points!
     
  20. merc7186

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    Yeah, no shit...had 5 guys in the top 15 in scoring and everyone went ice cold over the last 10 days or killed by injuries.

    Elias has cooled down, but Seguin and Loui are heating up. If only Buffalo didn't suck, I'd be much better off. And can't wait until Sharpie starts lighting the lamp. Damn streaky scorers!
     
  22. merc7186

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    Tell me about it...Zetterberg, Vanek, St. Louis, Clarkson have all been dogging it for me lately with Tavares and Kane slowing down some too. ...and Yes, Buffalo does suck :)

    What a great KO. I love fights in hockey. The only stupid thing is now we have to hear ESPN bitch about fighting in hockey. Leave it alone. It's tradition!
     
  24. merc7186

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    Since when does ESPN talk about hockey??? I even heard the great hockey mind Stephen A. Smith say that the Miami Heat win streak was way more impressive than the Chicago Blackhawks streak.

    This is why Canadians laugh at Americans who try to talk hockey. Comedic.

    Did you see him and Barry Melrose debating? That was great. I've been seeing a ton of hockey lately on SportsCenter I think mostly because of the Blackhawk's streak. To me, it seems like ESPN is pushing more and more hockey into their broadcast. Attendance and TV ratings are still going up. Someone has to capitalize!

    what a complete joke... 2 to 3 players can control an nba team for a season but in hockey you wont be successful unless at minimum 3 lines are playing great plus the top 2 D pairs and goalie no matter how many superstars you have... just take a look at tampa bay
     
  28. imfrommichigan

    imfrommichigan Jul 12, 2012 Michigan

    Yeah.. and sadly to say my Wings too. Those top two lines are among the best in the league but once the Grand Rapids Griffins get out there they get dominated. That became very apparent in that last game against the Blackhawks.
     
  29. merc7186

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    I will admit that I really don't watch ESPN anymore, stopped about 3 years ago when the first 58 minutes of a broadcast was NBA, NFL offseason doing, MLB spring training, WNBA, SC Top 10, the random feel good story...then 2 minutes of quick hockey. Now, the only time I turn it on is when I am on the road for work, Ill throw it on in the room and usually leave.
     
  30. OakedCanuck

    OakedCanuck Jun 23, 2009 Washington

    Same here. On the road for work and I don't know the local channels, lol. Plus cracking a beer into hotel room plastic cups is always great.

    Secondary scoring wins championships.

    Canucks fans are bags of dicks.

    That is all for now.

    You're welcome.

    Need to make road friends...hook yourself up on a BA Date. I've got two different tasting groups set up on the road for when I am in those towns. Had a killer tasting line up on Tuesday night (was useless yesterday).
     
  32. OakedCanuck

    OakedCanuck Jun 23, 2009 Washington

    Nice, I've done a few road trades and got together for a tasting at RR with the 'known' NorCal contingent last year, great times.

    Soooo, who is going to be in the middle of Nebraska in July or in the middle of Denali National Park from August to October? LOL!

    Alright we're halfway through the season. Looks like a few of us, including me, may as well pack up our boxes.

    I thought that a week ago when I was 35 points off the lead, now im only 6 off... just takes some players to get a hot streak and your right back in it.
     
  35. merc7186

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    ...or your entire team to get injured, find cold streaks, and have goaltenders line up to give up 4-5 goals per game. I think I was kind enough to drop 19 points over the last 10 days...that always helps too.
     
  36. OddNotion

    OddNotion Nov 1, 2009 New Jersey

    Thats true, all teams get streaky, first few my team did what yours is doing now. Point being, we still have half the season to go!:cool:

    I'm just searching for any excuse to hide the beers for this BIF from myself to keep from drinking! They just look so tasty.
     
  38. merc7186

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    ...the way to do that is keeping buying beers and making trades like an idiot. It has helped me along in this quest and now I have more IPAs than I can keep up with....and I am not even buying IPAs.
     
  39. imfrommichigan

    imfrommichigan Jul 12, 2012 Michigan

    Yeah I haven't bought or traded for an IPA in a long time. Always get them as extras which is great. I may have exhausted the MI IPA market.
     
  40. merc7186

    merc7186 Dec 5, 2010 New York

    I am purposely not buying or trading for any of them either...but in the last two weeks, Ive gotten 7 different ones and that doesnt even include this shit that I got muled from the HF release last wee.
