Danica Patrick makes history, wins Daytona 500 pole
« on: February 17, 2013, 04:43:07 PM »
Danica Patrick makes history, wins Daytona 500 pole.  If everything but the last word was true then this would be a great accomplishment.  Still, Danica has broken a barrier in NASCAR becoming the first driver ever to win the pole at NASCAR's top race.  How do you think she will finish in the actual race next weekend?

I think she has a shot but will she be in the big one.

Ouch.

I hope she wins. In reality I think she finishes in the top 10.

It could go either way. She could win the race, finish in the top 10, finish lower than 10th, or even wreck. But she definitely has the talent to win the 500.

Darrell Waltrip put it best the other day.  Major accomplishments in NASCAR are to win Daytona, Darlington, Indy, Bristol, AND the pole for the Daytona 500.  No easy task.  I think if she finishes on the lead lap and in the top 15 it is a major success.

    April 27, 2017, 01:19:14 PM
  • Gr8O: The Caps made Crosby and Malkin a non-factor in last years playoffs. If they can do it again this year with their added depth and Fleury being the goalie over Murray this time around, the Caps have a better shot this year than last year
    April 27, 2017, 01:28:40 PM
  • Gr8O: Crosby and Malkin only had 4 points between them last year against the Caps
    April 27, 2017, 01:31:38 PM
  • snugerud: fleury has been playing awesome careful what you wish for.
    April 27, 2017, 03:40:11 PM

    April 27, 2017, 11:33:48 PM
  • themarksman13: You can't keep expecting them to contain Malkin and Crosby. The Penguins are just too deep, especially last year, when they had their three best offensive weapons on three different lines.

  • Jonathan: Canes got their G, trading for Scott Darling. 2nd straight year they dealt around this time, last year it was Teuvo.
    April 28, 2017, 08:34:49 PM
  • Jonathan: It was a 3rd round pick, love deal for Carolina. Loaded with picks and money.
    April 28, 2017, 08:36:15 PM
  • themarksman13: Have they signed him yet?
    Yesterday at 04:38:25 PM
  • Jonathan: No, they cant sign him. They have a 5 day window right before FA to sign him, but its a done deal. Great opportunity for him.
    Yesterday at 04:44:36 PM
  • Jonathan: He is actually from this area too, from Virginia Beach.
    Yesterday at 04:49:09 PM
  • Jonathan: Actually, he grew up in Chicago. His dad was in the military in Virginia.
    Yesterday at 04:50:34 PM
  • Jonathan: Seems like an easy decision for him, No competition at Starter, no limits on cap and a solid D in front of him.
    Yesterday at 04:53:20 PM
  • Jonathan: Looking back, Chicago probably should of found a way to trade Crawford and keep Darling. Even with losing Darling, they still need to make a move to deal with cap problems and Crawford is the easiest player to move for that.
    Yesterday at 09:27:59 PM
  • Jonathan: I guess that is what happens when you pay 2 guys 30% of cap
    Yesterday at 09:33:41 PM
  • Jonathan: Colorado got shafted, picking 4th
    Yesterday at 09:48:44 PM
  • Tony: Wow maybe I'm wrong about the Caps.  Time to blue up the team.

  • favo_zomg: That and Crawford has a nmc and he can tailor his list to make it impossible to trade him

  • themarksman13: Yeah they're paying way too much to Kane and Toews lol
    Today at 01:18:31 PM
  • Jonathan: No, they're paying too much of a the salary cap to 2 stars. Kane and Toews could of got 12M  a year max. The team is making out though, all the money they're making off them.
    Today at 01:51:10 PM
  • Jonathan: they choked this year.
    Today at 01:59:27 PM
  • Anthony: Hawks didn't have much of a choice. It's the price you pay to keep your best two guys together. It sucks now but as the cap goes up, it'll even out. Stars will start getting 10m
    Today at 04:29:23 PM
  • Anthony: McDavid, AM are going to get 10m by the time they become FAls
    Today at 04:30:09 PM

    Today at 04:40:12 PM
  • themarksman13: Look at Crosby Malkin
    Today at 04:40:15 PM
  • themarksman13: They're all 9m or less
    Today at 04:40:24 PM
  • themarksman13: same with Ovie
    Today at 04:40:27 PM
  • themarksman13: no reason for them to pay Toews and Kane 2m more than Crosby. In no world other than NHL 17 is either of them better than Sid
    Today at 04:40:53 PM
  • Anthony: Not true. Malkin is 9.5
    Today at 05:02:22 PM
  • Anthony: Plus Ovi signed in 2008, when the cap was much different
    Today at 05:03:13 PM
  • Anthony: Crosby signed in 2012, again cap was different than it is now
    Today at 05:03:26 PM
  • Anthony: It was smart for the penguins to sign Crosby when they did for 8.7m, when he could have easily gotten 10m+
    Today at 05:05:08 PM
  • Anthony: Kopitar makes 10m a year now. Things are going to change sooner than you think
