  1. @superfan99 you had a knowledge of the game I found utterly surprising! I don’t know how he amassed this knowledge but he had lots of tricks up his sleeve. He even did the @IceStorm70/ @HABS special cross crease pass shot.
  2. I need some Jimmy Carson in my team. LA Kings

  4. I essentially agree with IceStorm's ideal team. I like my wingers a bit faster than my center unless it is Mogilny. I never want a dman with more speed than agility under any circumstances. It makes their turning circles when changing to the backwards skate wider and slower - and that blows. I'll sacrifice stickhandling for passing from my d men as I want the puck out of their hands. I don't really care how much they weigh. Unless you have Bourque or maybe Brown, you should not use the d man for many slappers so who cares about the shot? I mean I'll take a better shot, but I'm not going to use in anything except the most desperate situations. As for his Ice's opinion on stick side, I go back and forth. Passing is definitely crisper from the off stick side but you also have less ability to carry the puck well. I go back and forth on which side to put my guys. Against better players I generally agree with going off stick side. I am an avid stick side deke shooter with a speedster, but against someone with above average defense I don't get many opportunities to do that.
  5. I'm not sure what these posts mean, but here's to KG.
  6. Carson to Zep Damphousse to Aqua
  7. Playing Uncle Seth led me to believe when in doubt CB. Be warned, missing a C/CB check when you are in your zone on defense (not sure if that is correct hockey lingo) often has disastrous consequences.

  9. can someone explain how my guys get taken down from behind? I feel like I'm the one person who doesn't know how to do this. Is it a b check? CB? When I CB someone skating away from me it never works. I also have never witnessed that checking increases the odds of a CB. You'd expect some of the 1 checking guys to suck at CB checks, and I've never noticed that.

    Plablegs III Draft

    Muller- please auto draft for me.
  11. I messed up I want the draft draft thing.
  12. Bud of the year doesn’t go well with persistent drama. I think you are often right, but it is part popularity contest. Right??? I have no idea what @slapshot67 did but thanks anyway! Edit: I didn’t realize we were talking about the runner up list. Plabax for runner up!
  13. I feel like zeppelin55 is pretty obviously an old AOL name from 1996. It is the band and 55 which I think was my jersey number at the time. As for actual names, my parents couldn’t agree on a name, or they hadn’t picked one yet. Unfortunately for them, I was 5 weeks early. At the hospital, my dad runs into an old acquaintance Dewey Hodges. He was also at the hospital having a son, my dad asks what they are naming him? He responds, “Kyle David.” My dad liked the name. It kinda helps he was named David. Kinda. Last month a coworker comes up to me to tell me that his friend Kyle Hodges just had a kid days before me. He didn’t know the story, but knew we shared the same birthday (his brothers as well). As for the newborn, Ozzie is just an excellent name. My wife was very worried that I liked it too much since my taste is generally abstract and obscure.
  14. I will play. I can't promise my play will be good with a newborn and wife yelling at me, but I'll probably have a decent amount of non working time in the winter anyway.
