The Detroit Red Wings are old and busted. The Dallas Stars are new hotness.

Jesus Saves...
Brett Hull steals...he shoots...he scores!!!
2003-02-10 11:44:15 PM  
i like Hull, even more when he was with the Stars. but a hero tag?
2003-02-10 11:44:35 PM  
Our Blackhawks coulda had him... but he wasn't good enough i guess...

I suppose Wertz wanted an 800 goal scorer?

so what

Pittsburgh traded Kovalev for four pieces of crap and they traded Andy Ferance for a draft pick... A FARKING DRAFT PICK

they should just release all the guys on the team right now, bring up all the Wilkes-Barre guys and let the JV Pens play hockey

farking pens

pray for the 'guins to get back into the playoffs sometime in the next 10 years...

Hull is, and always will be a hack.
2003-02-10 11:49:02 PM  
Heh, Brett Hull went to college at my college. Freshman year, played lots of hockey, failed all his classes, they put him on academic probation. Sophomore year, same thing, Junior year, same deal, coupled with a veiled threat. He said "screw this" and went to the NHL.

Good story.
2003-02-10 11:50:28 PM  
ah Stompn_Tom that statement was in poor taste. What happened to Konstantinov was very unfortunate and sad :(

Anyways, a$$holes aside, HERO tag yes. Way to go Brett!
2003-02-10 11:50:29 PM  
Hull is trash. Couldn't make team Canada....

took him long enough to score that last goal too.

i didn't see it but it was probably scored off a slapshot from about 5 feet.

whatcha talkin' bout?
2003-02-10 11:54:42 PM  
As a Coloradan and an Avalanche fan, I must categorically state:

2003-02-10 11:55:23 PM  
Stompn_Tom, not cool. Not cool at all.

Anyway, go Wings.
2003-02-10 11:55:29 PM  
Hmm. can't see any way this can be used to point out the fact that soccer sucks. Aw well, soccer sucks regardless. Oh. I'm sorry, I mean Football.
2003-02-10 11:57:27 PM  
I Agree Wholeheartedly with Erbo. RED WINGS SUCK!!!
2003-02-10 11:58:23 PM  
Props to Brett... it was a one timer from about 15 feet out on the left side. Was a nice play gotta say.
2003-02-10 11:58:24 PM  
RoadDoggyDogg--don't give them any ideas, I don't want to see the Wheeling Freaking Nailers in Wilkes-Barre, the baby Pens have enough problems as it is.

BTW, Stompn Tom--is that the "good old hockey game" song guy?
2003-02-10 11:58:31 PM  
im glad i actually saw nicepants post before it was removed. now that was funny
2003-02-10 11:58:49 PM  
Where is SweaterGirl?

I don't wanna hear it. He's not a Red Wing. He's a Blues. HOF as a Blues.

2003-02-10 11:59:05 PM  
Hero? He puts a small black piece of rubber into a net with a hero.
2003-02-11 12:00:21 AM  
Hero? Brett hall is no Hero, he is a wanker
2003-02-11 12:01:23 AM  
As a hockey fan, I have to say good job. He doesn't play for my team any longer, but I still appreciate how well he plays.
Go Stars!
2003-02-11 12:03:46 AM  
Brett Hull is SHIAT!!! Iam_Canadian said it right!!! Not even one of the top 20 Candian hockey players ever!!! He doesn't compare to anyone else in that group!! The only reason he ever won a ring is because he was traded to a good team that was going to win it anyway!!!

/written while fighting gag reflex!
2003-02-11 12:05:09 AM  
well netting 700 is nothing to sneeze at, but i still can't stand him.
2003-02-11 12:05:41 AM  
Internet geek gets laid.

now thats a hero tag

I'm glad I saved a screenshot of Nicepants post...
2003-02-11 12:13:12 AM  
"Hero" is the wrong term for this kind of man.

"Professional" is a better term.
"Artist" is higher than that.
"Mechanic" is one ultimate, if old-school, term that could be used.
"Monster" is more recent.
"Iron Man" was popular when I was young.
Even "Steely-Eyed Missle Man" would work.

But, he's not a hero by any definition.
2003-02-11 12:17:21 AM  
All I have to say about Nicepants' post...
2003-02-11 12:19:00 AM  
I concur with Erbo and the other avs fan. As for Sweater Girl, maybe this will catch her attention, and she won't post.

Hero until he turned traitor to the Blues.
2003-02-11 12:19:37 AM  
Score all he wants, Brett Hull is a Dick! If there is such a thing as "Sports Justice," Brett Hull will never kiss the cup. He is the Barry Bonds of hockey, and should blow all of the wingers of the Chicago Blackhawks at the earliest opportunity.
2003-02-11 12:20:08 AM  
Avalanche333: Right ON! Our boys in burgundy and blue are gonna get it done this year, and put those Detroit nogoodniks in their place!

Just remember, Wing fans...The "Fors" is STRONG with this one!

And please note that Brett Hull tried to score that 700th goal in two back-to-back games against Colorado...and failed. Miserably. That's what you get when you go up against the greatest goalie ever to play between the pipes!
2003-02-11 12:22:40 AM  

Hull has already kissed a cup twice. Once as a star, and the other last year as a wing.
2003-02-11 12:24:46 AM  
Where's the Sabres fans? Aren't they going to come whine about "in the crease"?
2003-02-11 12:26:25 AM  
Furthermore, I don't know how you can say Brett's a dick.

Maybe like 8-10 years ago, yeah. You might make that case. But overall he's a good guy, and recently he's been class of the league.

Things with Wayne not working out really opened his eyes.
2003-02-11 12:26:55 AM  
700 goats? Holy shiat, he'd be a millionaire in the Balkans.
2003-02-11 12:26:56 AM  
About farking time. I hope it was a legitimate goal at least.
2003-02-11 12:29:48 AM  
one word: AVS.
2003-02-11 12:30:06 AM  
i got a Brett Hull Gt-Snowracer for christmas one year.
i opened the was missing the stearing wheel.

useless product...meets useless hockey player.
2003-02-11 12:30:15 AM  

Where's a Tool tag when you need one?
2003-02-11 12:30:59 AM  
By the way, Avs still rule. We made Federov cry Sunday night.

Sorry to keep you waiting, ElwoodCuse
2003-02-11 12:34:23 AM  
You have slapped me into line. Thank you.
Said Dick is still a dick! He is an opportunist, not a team guy. Brett Hull is a leach, grasping for cup glory without the resposibility... and if I'm not mistaken, Brett Hull didn't join Dallas until AFTER they won the cup in 1999. Therefore he was a DALLAS STAR only when they lost the Cup to the NEW JERSEY DEVILS. Just a rant.
2003-02-11 12:34:50 AM  
Yeah, remind how that goal Hull scored against Buffalo was any different than the 100 or so goals waved off that year thanks to that stupid crease rule?

Buffalo got jobbed.
2003-02-11 12:35:43 AM  

uh, see above picture.
2003-02-11 12:37:11 AM  
alright fine he scores his whatever goal but hero? fark that pretty boy, Im happiest when he is getting floored by a mid ice check
2003-02-11 12:37:24 AM  
Actually, radiothor the pic from above is the "no goal" goal that Hull scored on Hasek to win the cup for the Stars in game 6 in 1999. So yeah, he was there.
2003-02-11 12:39:03 AM  
Liverhooligan - The league said that he had control of the puck. But, please, continue to cry over it.
2003-02-11 12:39:20 AM  
Duke stinks. Blows. Erm..what's the line again?
