    Default Studs & Duds - Sunday 2/3

    Studs
    Was that Mario Lemieux is disguise? - Did Mario Lemieux secretly come out of retirement and put on a Chris Kunitz jersey when no one was looking? I personally think it could be a possibility as the player wearing #14 for the Pittsburgh Penguins continued putting up points by firing 3 goals past the Washington Capitals Sunday night. Kunitz was a “Monster” and finished the night with 3 G, 3 Pts, 2 PPG, 1 GWG, +1, 3 SOG and 2 Hits.

    Marty Brodeur with another Shut.....? – No that wasn’t Marty Broduer between the pipes when the New Jersey Devils blanked the New York Islanders, it was Manitoba Moose alumni Johan Hedberg! Hedberg, making his 2nd start of the season faced only 22 shots for the shut out but came up big when needed including a huge pad save stopping Micheal Grabner on a short-handed breakaway in the third period when the game was still scoreless.

    Man, not him again! – Of course I am talking about Buffalo Sabre sniper Thomas Vanek. Vanek increased his point total to a league leading 19 points with another strong night by scoring 1G and 2A. It seems like we are talking about Vanek every night and quite frankly wish we were talking my guys on my fantasy hockey team instead.

    Duds
    Grabbing the number #1 goalie spot, NOT! – Braden Holtby is showing the Washington Capitals that he really doesn’t want to be a number #1 goalie after all. Holtby gave up 6 goals Sunday against the Pittsburgh Penguins while only faces 26 shots. Holtby fell to 1-3 on the season with a 4.52 GAA and a .862 save %. I think even I could of played better.

    I thought the power only went out at the Super Bowl? – The New York Islanders had their own power struggles on Sunday has they only managed a paltry 22 shots in getting shut out by the New Jersey Devils. A big reason for being shut out is the Power Play had no power what so ever as it went 0-7 on the night.

    At least he did have to pay to watch the game – New Jersey forward Krystofer Barch spent most of the game watching from the best seat in the house, the bench. Barch took 5 shifts and played only 2:54 on the night. Ilya Kovalchuk had 2 shifts that were longer than that. I heard that he finally passed the 2nd level on Angry Birds - Star Wars edition halfway through the 3rd period.

    Good read, DR. A little hard on Holtby as I feel the Pens are starting to click and that could have been just about any goalie yesterday . I absolutely loved the SB power outage tie in. Way to capitaize on moment that will be etched in the minds of many for some time to come.

    Make that 4 goal night for Kunitz! He tipped in the 1st goal of the game that first credited to Martin but now has been changed to Kunitz.

    Love!
    Three of my favourite topics:
    *Krys Barch
    *Ilya Kovalchuk taking long shifts
    *Angry Birds (that Star Wars is tough... mercy, some of those boards... well, I don't like to admit to going to YouTube for tips, but man... been there)

    Yeah... I'd like to think that I've dialed it down a bit, but "should/could/would of" just makes me twitch. MAJOR pet peeve of mine. It's just ignorance and NO awareness of your own language. I never see English as a 2nd language users make that error.

    I blame my 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Wilson, she was so pretty and hot that I just starred at her all day and day dreamed that we were in love.

    Then you have not been to the community center that I volunteer at.

    Which of the above is grammatically correct?

    As with most sentences within the English language, colloquial speech has defined the written word to some degree. It used to bug me when people say things like "I'm going down the shop." Just by replacing one word the sentence will be grammatically correct. "I'm going to the shop."

    I will play devil's advocate and ask one simple question?

    Is it absolutely necessary to be grammatically correct on a forum that is not related to the English language?

    Every single post that has been grammatically incorrect since I've been on this forum has still been answered. Discussion has still been generated regarding the content of the post, not the manner in which it was written.

    The beautiful thing about the human mind is that we do not need everything to be perfect in order to understand it.

    Having said that, it still bugs the bejeebus out of me when "there, they're and their" are used incorrectly.

    Thanks for reading, I hope it wasn't too grammatically correct for the average person to comprehend

    Most people react negatively when they see someone use bad language, assuming they know anything about language. Most reactions are subconscious. If someone writes "should of", then most people will recognize that something is off with that and label the writer as at least slightly unintelligent. Again, mostly subconsciously... only language fascist ******** do it consciously

    If you want to come across as a dumbass, go ahead and butcher the language. That's how it works.

    Derek still wrote an entertaining piece of work, despite the grammar. I can't wait for his next article on Sunday.

    Or is it just an oversight?

    Ya know, Dakkster, honestly, your arrogance is second to none. We write these in a pinch, in an attempt to simultaneously include as much substance while trying to adhere to a deadline. Ya think this is the only thing we have going on in our lives? Think we have time to proof read everything? Think we're just lollygagging the day away as we attempt to provide some insight?

    Truth is mistakes happen. I am no professional typist and sometimes in my haste my mind and fingers get tangled in their tango.

    But honestly I don't care, and if you do then pm a brother a pointer or heads-up. But broadcasting others typos, mispellings, or grammatical errors in some pompus attempt to show the world all you know...is just childish.

    So do me a favor and save your English 101 lessons for someone who gives a sh!t

    Thanks
