    Default I'm tired of Beachlife player segments

    I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of seeing our Players casually enjoying beach life with their hot wives relaxing on the beach during intermission segments. Why on Earth do the fans want to see a LAST PLACE team's players casually living it up on the beach. IMHO this is re-instilling the LA is a great place to live for millionaire athletes vibe and that's not the message we want. Lombardi had a plan, created a culture and reversed that thinking by FORCING QUICK to take that "Palm Trees in the SUN" back helmet plate off because that is not the message we're trying to send to the hockey world. Luc was brought in to be Mr. Hollywood and this is not a good thing when you're in Last place. Sure, players are going to go to the beach and enjoy their lives in their own time, but don't publicize their leisure when they can't get anything done on the ice. On the flip-side, we're winning again, sure show the spoils of war.

    I'd much rather see ladder drills of Toffoli working on his skating and tirelessly working on his shot then him enjoying himself out at a Dodgers game. Bottom line, our team is 10-ply soft and we need to toughen up our image and re-affirm our goals of becoming a respectable hockey organization once again.

    Dude. They live by the f***in' beach.

    Like, they open the patio door, cross a concrete bike path or whatever, and their feet are in sand.




    And the entire idea of those powder puff segments is to show them at home, as personalities, with their families, away from the ice. We live in Southern California. I bet the ones they run in Calgary have the players on horses and doing line dancing and other cowboy s*** 'cause that's what people do in Calgary.

    I'd rather see them hanging out at the beach having fun than a painfully awkward sequence about Derek Forbort riding horses.

    Luc thinks fans are interested in the players sweet, sweet, beach life.

    Same how it's thought that fans are interested in the dogs the players own.

    Some like this sort of stuff....so be it.

    I couldn't care less. I'm interested in the team on the ice.

    To each his own.

    Here's a piece of cake. Now shutup and eat it, and keep paying for your season tickets!

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Maybe, but I would love a segment about horses riding Derek Forbort.
