Doktor Kosmos's Achievements

NHL Hall of Fame

NHL Hall of Fame (23/23)



  1. Habs fan will notice that former Canadien Andreas Dackell was on the winning team. I think he started the season as a player but had to retire due to injuries and finished the season as an assistant.
  2. Every passing day it gets worse. More details.
  3. Read more in this article: Xfinity news
  4. Ted Leonsis, Bruce Boudreau and Alex Ovechkin beg to differ.
  5. Couldn't have said it better myself. I have zero doubt plays like Rome's hit on Horton or Chara's hit on Pacioretty or Stevens' hit on Kariya are indeed intended to hurt the opposing player. If players had respect for their opponents on the other team, we wouldn't see plays like this. In the Chara/Pacioretty case, for example, a "respectful play" would be for Chara to merely get in the way of Max to slow him down. Instead Chara really did drive him into the stanchion.
  6. lol @ Chara & Thomas. I've said it before and I'll say it again: size is not a skill. Being big might make a payer useful to his team, but that's not the same as saying said player is a good player. Chara being a good case in point tonight. I only watched the third period (and those 11 seconds of OT) and Chara was on the ice for both Canucks goals (Sedin's tying goal and Burrows' gamewinner), and he turned the puck over in his own zone a number of times. Chara might very well be the most overrated defender in the NHL right now IMO.
  7. Wasn't Colon Campbell more of a dirty player than Shanny? Personally I don't think it's going to change much, but I welcome the move. On one hand it seems to me that Shanahan has done some good work with the league responsabilities he's had after he retired as a player. On the other hand, this is the NHL and I don't expect much to change in how disciplinary matters are expedited. It can't get much worse, but I'm not holding my breath either.
  8. lol @ teh Big Bad Broons. Uhm... Game 4 of the Sharks-Canucks series... Are they playing in San Jose or Vancouver? I'm wondering cause the Vancouver fans are a lot louder than the San Jose fans.
  9. Well I'm Swedish so I really don't care much about bringing the Cup back to Canada. I'd like the Habs to bring it back to Montreal. If Montreal was in the US or Sweden or frikken Zimbabwe is of little importance to me, if you know what I mean. I am however rooting for the Canucks. I would prefer the 'Nucks and the Lightning to make it to the finals this year.
  10. I think we have long since passed the point where that can be considered an accomplishment for the Habs.
  11. I've been catching old X-Files reruns lately. It's awesome. I used to watch that show every week for nine years. Haven't seen it since it ended tho. Nor have I managed to get myself to follow any other series (with two exceptions: Monk and the first season of the new version of V). Actually, the way the X-Files ended really soured me on following series and has done so ever since, almost, what, ten years later? lol I was very displeased with the ending and I swear to God, if I'd met Chris Carter in the street, I would have punched him in the face. I was really really disappointed with the ending. The last number of years I've felt like the more people talk about a series, the less interested I feel to watch it. I gave 24 a shot but after having pained myself to sit through the first half of season 1, I just couldn't take it anymore. I thought they had come up with a great and very original format - but it was terribly poorly exectued. Prison Break, Dexter, Legend of the Seeker, True Blood... I haven't watched a full episode of any of those, or any of the other series that are popular in Sweden. Damn you, Chris Carter!
  12. I have to say I'm impressed with the Lightning so far. They came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Pens, they swept the Capitals in four straight games and now they've won the first game @ teh Big Bad Broons. You might argue that the Pens imploded. You might argue that the games against the Caps were close games (two one-goal games, one of which was settled in OT, two two-goal games). That's how I interpreted Boohoodreau's excuses anyway, that if only the Caps would have had more luck, they may have won those games. You might argue that Thomas/the Broons defense/Susan Lucic/Nathan Horton blew the game last night. You might argue that the East is, as has been the case the last couple of years, is the weaker of the two conferences. Or you might give the Bolts some credit and call BS on those excuses. You don't win so many close games just because of luck. You don't win 8 consecutive games in the playoffs just because of luck. Or that the opposition was bad.
  13. I was shocked when I heard the news. 28 years old. That is truly tragic. I'm not a big fan of fighting and goons, but Boogard was cool IMO. It'll be interesting to find out what the cause of death was. Remember that other young Ranger who died a couple of years ago? Cherepanov? I'm not saying there was an foul play in Boogard's case, but I also can't help wondering what may have caused his death. Probably some disease or physical defect (I don't know if this is the right word, pardon my crappy English) that no one was aware of. I mean, I can name two Swedish goaltenders with NHL experience under their belt who both suffer from heart conditions - Maple Leaf Jonas Gustafsson and former Flyer/Islander Tommy Söderström. It may have been something like that in Boogard's case, only unlike said Swedish goalies, no doctor found out about Boogard (at least I don't remember ever hearing about him having that kind of problems).
