The 41 year old American defenseman retired a few years ago pretty much ‘cuz God told him to which is cool and all, but now after playin in the Red Wings’ Legends game prior to the Winter Classic a couple weeks ago it appears he’s rekindled his other calling of pro hockey. Signing a deal with the ECHL’s Florida Everblades, Rafalski more or less quoted LL: “I wouldn’t call it a comeback right now…it’s just that God put it in my heart early/mid December to start skating again. I’ve said a constant prayer over that time, [while] at the same time getting back in shape and skating a little bit. Worse case, I get back in shape again. As far as anything else goes, we’ll see where it leads.”
Somewhere Legends teammate Chris Chelios is definitely looking to one up Raf…
Mike Smith plays goalie for the Phoenix Coyotes. Smith’s arguably the best puck handling goalie in the game right now and he scored goal tonight against the Detroit Red Wings. He’s got more goals than Claude Giroux.
Just gonna cut right to it. Hossa had a legit bomb last night, a straight up cannon and it just made Quick look even sillier than he possibly could’ve looked already after Big Bick’s goal. But that’s whatever it’s beyond me.
Marian Hossa is not afraid to unleash some serious fire when he winds up for those clappers. He’s been notorious throughout his career using his big body and speed and has been a dominant one on one player. The guy is gettin older for sure and he’s been diggin deep into his repertoire for a shit ton of new tricks to make opposing teams look stupid. Observe:
Last night’s Game Winning Goal. Straight up snipe bomb. Lord.
Are you kidding with that shot? He straight up yells over to Handzus before the pass, “AYOO MIKE IMMA PLAY THREE BAR, DISH IT!” A play like that can just stun a team, I think Penner’s bad reaction to Pancakes might’ve tweaked his back again IMMEDIATELY from the ferocity in that shot.
Sorry Taylor Stevens and the rest of the Los Angeles Kings but ChiTown will win at the Madhouse on Madison for game 5.
Uh yup don’t bother reading that headline again cuz you got it right the first time: Hawks win cuz this dog shits all over Sharpy’s lawn. All the time.
This has gotta put dog lovers in Detroit and Vancouver in a tough spot since there’s no doubt each and every one of them have already thought of murdering this Lab mix.
Mike Babcock is a scary lookin yug sometimes. If you happen to catch him pissed off behind the Red Wing bench he strongly looks resembles an eagle. Call me crazy but look at these two pictures.
I’ve always wondered where this fuckin warrior got that gnarly lookin scar from. But this beats the hell outta me.
Me and my dude LAN caught one of Mike’s post game interviews where he straight up said “gonna put this loss behind me and go out and grab a beer with my wife.” We both found that to be so remarkable. This guy rules.
Mike’s a straight up dude and is one of the league’s best coaches. He and his boys are one win away from taking down the Blackhawks. No one saw this one coming. But in the end, we all know that an eagle always wins against the hawk…
