Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Ovie sitting out the All-Star game is precisely why he'll never win the Cup. No heart.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Ovie sitting out is not a big deal. Would he have even been eligible to play? If I were the Caps, I'd be pissed that he wouldn't be available for three of our games, but he's still supposed to play in an exhibition.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

The league told him he was welcome to play in the allstar game despite the suspension. Its kind of selfish of the league to say that when you think about it.

Ya so I'll be doing the vbookie for NHL now, if you guys want any particular games added tell me and I'll add them, otherwise I'll try to get the best matchup of the day.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

The league needs Ovie with Crosby out and Ovie knows that so he's throwing his little temper tantrum and "sticking to the league" by sitting out.

Oh well, Ovie sitting out allows someone who actually deserves to play in the game (Neal) take his spot.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

That's what I'm getting it ya. They gotta sell the allstar game so they still want him there. Ah well.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

I just don't agree with it being selfish of the league to invite him. If anyone is being selfish, it's Ovie. He's one of the biggest stars the league has and the league can use all the star power it can get with Crosby out. Instead, he'd rather pout like a 7 year old because the league suspended him (a justified suspension tbh). It's just poor character.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

The leagues intentions for wanting him there are selfish. Its a financial decision whether they admit it or not. Its not like they are trying to make the "best allstar game possible". There's enough talent in the league.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Correct me if I'm wrong, but he was voted in by the fans, right? What's selfish about the league wanting someone the fans voted to see play the game?

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

All I'm saying is there's some corruption in their reasoning for still wanting him there. I still see ovie as a little girl in the situation as well.
