  1. Danny DeKeyser suffers broken thumb, out for playoffs

    Oh, I think he was actually behind Getzlaf when he scored... So was he on the ice for the next two ducks' goals as well?
  2. Danny DeKeyser suffers broken thumb, out for playoffs

    Guys, does anyone know when exactly DeKeyser got hurt? Was it before or after Getzlaf scored?

    That's why there are more chances to get Semin than any canadian.
  4. 11/3 GDT: Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

    I have not seen the game, but I am sure Howi did a marvelous job again. One goal on 5 shots in first period, goal on 5 shots in second. Such a performance should definitely help the team to gain some confidence, especially come playoff time... Kiprusoff was just a little bit better, but everybody got used to this. We need to trade all forwards and keep Howi. He is the only bright spot... Not to mention that you cannot expect a shutout from a goaltender every game! He should feel great about himself. I hope we will never get a goalie better than what we have... I wish we would get a stud defenseman who would block all shots, and a couple of forwards who would never attack but stay in defense to make sure Howi will not need to save the team from a breakaway… Cheers!
  5. A Goalie is Needed

    Guys, who was better last night: Howard or Harding?
  6. 10/29 GDT: Red Wings at Minnesota Wild

    Are you serious? The #1 goalie on the Stanley Cup contender team should let 5 in on 20 shots? The good #1 should not let any in yesterday. The good goalie saves the team when it's in the funk. Who was better against the sharks, their or our goalie? Niemi. Who was better against the wild? Harding (not to mention that he is not #1). What I am trying to say is that we so got used to not having a decent goalie at all that when he stops two or three shots in a row we say that he did a terrific job! There are 30 teams in the league. Please call out the ones who have a less reliable #1 than we do.

    Who do you think was better Howard or Niemi?

  9. A Goalie is Needed

    We need a goaltender. Conklin is an impotent (as a player, i.e. cannot perform as a goaltender), Howard is a father. Even if you consider Howard a descent one to carry the team through the whole season, he may be able to get used to new home schedule (sleepless nights with newborn) by the start of the playoffs. But unfortunately by then most probably we will not need him since we will be out of it. Did you all notice that no matter who we play against, our goalie is always worse than another guy? And when finally he overplays his opponent (once or may be twice a year), we feel so proud, not to mention surprised… We always hope, believe. But it’s never a sure thing… I am just wondering why we cannot have the one who would be reliable at least 85% of the time? Don’t we finally have money to get one? Or we were waiting too long and now no one is available? All strong teams this year have good goalies and good backups… It is not possible to rely only on players when we all know that a goalie is half of the team, no matter how hard you try to forget about it.

    WE NEED A GOALIE! Yes, shi**y games always happen, but that's when you need a goalie to help you... There is no hope with the BS we have between the pipes...
  11. 10/25 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blue Jackets 4

    You guys say whatever you want, and of course we can blame defense, offence, coaches, bad luck, bad weather, but until wings will get a GOOD goalie nothing will happen... Conklin is BS, Howard is close to it. WE HAVE NOT HAD A GOALIE FOR MORE THAN A DECADE NOW...
  12. WCSF Game 3 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3

    Now all wings can do is to lose next game 4:3 as well. It is the only thing they were consistent at in this series. Not to mention it probably will be the only thing to be proud about. Let's think about next season... Go wings!
  13. Babcock's days are numbered?

    I hate to say it, but watching how the team plays since game 6 last year finals, tells me that there is some kind of conflict between players and the coach. The only explanation to the way they stopped playing yesterday after the first period (being 3:0 against Kings) is that they want to get rid of him. I will laugh my ass out, if canadian olympic national team will have two coaches, who were fired few weeks prior to the games... What do you think colleagues?
  14. Babs responds to waved-off goal in Game 3

    Could anyone clarify for me the F.... rule. The puck clearly got into the net a second before the moron blew his whistle. Does the rule say that even if referee blows the whistle a minute after the puck crossed the line it is still not a goal? Thanks.
