Discussion in 'Los Angeles Kings' started by Raccoon Jesus, Mar 1, 2018.
He said dramatically.
Oh come on, I've been around the Kings fan boards since the old usenet days and people have always been bitchy, crotchety, and whiny. Do you remember the shit show this place was when Willsie scored a f*cking goal to help us beat the Sharks in '07 putting us ahead of the Lightning? Do you remember the people complaining about our left wing being 'cap space' and the fact that Lombardi never took any risks? Do you remember the huge f*cking arguments over Jack Johnson, people were at each others throats over him on here.
Of course I rememeber that. But that was arguments about the game and the team. Not over "distasteful" jokes.
After trade deadline:
Traded: Martinez, Toffoli, Carter, Lewis.
Will not speculate on goaltending atm.
It appeared to be more about some getting annoyed at the same boring jokes clogging up the thread, which I can fully agree with, rather than about the comments themselves being offensive. A good alternative might be to have a Vilardi news thread and a different thread for people to discuss how he will never play again and how they don't acknowledge him as a prospect. To be honest I wish this was already the case, because it would making finding those comments from this offseason stating that he will never skate again easier to find.
The best thing about a message board is you don't have to read it. If something offends you, skip over it. If something is getting old to you, skip over it.
I always think of message boards as a room full of people I am with. I don't think of it as some online contest to see who is right, or some kind of other competition. I don't think I've read many things (if any) on this board that would offend me if I heard it in person.
Bjornfot for the odd game here and their maybe, no reason to burn a year on his deal.
EDIT: One other thing, depending on when his season ends, maybe Turcotte signs and plays a few games, same for Kaliyev, either one could sign an ATO and play for Ontario as well.
See, how can I know if something "offends" me if I don't read it. I wouldn't know until after I did so. Then it's too late....
That said, I wasn't offended, I was giving feedback. I could just as easily flip the tables and ask why the people I was responding to were so sensitive, etc.
It only took like 1000 "Gabe Villardi will never play again" type comments before I wrote something about it, so my sensitivity meter must be really sluggish.
I think I'd rather have a "whinging about the past" thread first so that the Kings News and Rumors thread isn't taken up with 50 pages of what the Kings didn't do years ago, but that's just me.
Are you referring to why he was shutdown last December after only 4 AHL games? If so, I believe that he was shutdown for core muscle imbalance that time and not because of the original back injury. But the muscle imbalance is related to the original back injury.
As far as the actual back injury, it is my opinion that it was the result of overuse. Vilardi was only 17 years old when he initially injured his spine, and it was because he should not have been playing 67 games as a 16 year old when his body was going through a rapid growth spurt. His muscles couldn’t keep up with his growth in height and he put too much strain on his lower back as a result.
Again, my opinion.
Anyone have an update on him this week?
He didn't travel with the Reign on its road trip, but is practicing in So Cal.
No setback=good news to me
Vilardi in red no contact and Forbort skating with Stoll this morning. Vilardi about 45 minutes, Forbort about 30
Nice to see the Bad Back Boys on the ice.
Fantastic to see Vilardi actually skating with the Reign. Obviously there is still a long ways to go before we can consider him 100% and ready to go, but it's a start, and a step in the right direction.
I have a feeling I know where this thread is headed once Vilardi dons a Kings uniform.
That’s good to see. He looks to be moving pretty well, so fingers crossed.
This is great news! Forbort is working his way back!
I completely forgot Forbort was on this team....
Not only is he on the team he's making 2.5 million dollars this season.
Yeah, Kempe's on the block. We'll even throw in a bag of pucks.
