Discussion in 'National Hockey League Talk' started by Ziggy Stardust, Feb 12, 2021.
And how quiet they get when he’s playing well.
I think it's actually a fairly common sentiment, that was the main complaint from LA fans the past few years. He didn't slow down or lose a step, he just stopped putting in effort.
And that isn’t what you want in a short season.
I Remember when people were saying Karlsson is going to be Lidstrom's equal or superior by citing how he accomplished more his first 7 yrs...
he hasn't blown out a nut yet so there's that
He's playing well?...checks salary....right
And Doug Wilson didn't intend to trade for and sign a broken down player who isn't even half the player he used to be.
What is this even supposed to mean.
I think it’s pretty obvious what it means. He’s not playing anywhere close to his salary.
Tell us something we don’t already know
2 g 3 a + 7 in his last 7. Guess when he isn’t playing injured (and bad) you guys have to just move the goal posts and start attacking from other angles.
Whoa no way, a 50-some point pace for 7 whole games? Karlsson is BACK.
In a thread that was started over 1 play, 7 games is much more significant of a sample size.
But you don’t want to actually have a discussion; you just want to try the same lame standup routine all the others are.
Hint: it sucks
When Karlsson went to the All-Star game one year he decided to dress as a pirate so that he could stand out.
The fact he was at the All-Star game wasn't enough attention for him he had to do something else to stand out from the other players going to the game.
When someone has an ego this large people enjoy it when they fail.
Weird to be happy a guy’s career got derailed by injury.
OH NO. HE DRESSED AS A PIRATE TO A FUN, FAN EVENT.
He should be blasted into space for such audacity.
I bet you’re real fun at parties.
You think that's funny? I've got a better one: one guy masqueraded as a Dman in the the world's premier hockey league for several seasons! In truth he was a rover, perhaps even a forward. Hilarious! And the fan fun part? A lot of his die hard fans didn't even see through the disguise...talk about fan fun
EK is one of the greatest offensive defensemen of all-time.
Didnt Hedman dress as a pirate too? What a bum.
You honestly talk like someone who doesn’t actually watch hockey but merely regurgitates what you read here or on social media.
I'm curious to hear how you know his motives for the costume.
Nice try dude. However, I quit FB in 2008. Among the first to participate and definitely among the first to leave.
His motive was there was a pirate festival running at the same time so he and Hedman dressed up. It's the All Star game, not the Stanley Cup final. It's a fan event meant to be fun and light hearted.
This is a joke right?? That was when the big pirate festival was in Tampa Bay that weekend with 1000's of people dressed like a pirate.
Yeah, he really stood out in the same costume every other person in the city was wearing.
What has happened to the internet?
It’s honestly a very sad thing. Both his decline and the way some people seem to relish it.
We talk about wanting dynamic players in the game, the types who draw you out of your seat, who are worth watching even for neutral and casual fans. We finally get a defenseman like that, and he gets targeted till he breaks and then crucified for it.
So you just don’t watch the games and form opinions solely from here. Gotcha.
