  1. I really think the Captain (#19) may have lost some credibility, although i have no idea if he has a hand in this childish behavior. I attended the first Tampa home game against the Wings, with the Captain as the new GM, where over 80% of the crowd was wearing Wings sweaters, shirts, hats, etc.. now this, please see the following link. http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2015-06-01/tampa-bay-s-hockey-dress-code-insults-lightning-fans To be clear, i am not alleging that the Captain had anything to do with this decision, but it is an absolute embarrassment to the Lightning organization as well their fan base. I guess once expansion teams enter the picture this type of behavior exists.
  2. St. Louis is a candy a**, he was in Tampa and he still is NYC. Nothing would make me happier than to see him Kronwalled.
  3. I was watching the Leafs Sabres game this evening and the camera zoomed in Jimmy D when the commentators were discussing Gordie Howe's stroke. I wonder if he was there to watch any particular player n the ice tonight?
  4. As i look at our current roster i wonder if there is another team in the NHL that is comprised of so many players that have been drafted and that have come up through the organization. Aside from Gustavsson, Miller, and Weiss, every other player currently signed by by Detroit was drafted by the Wings and were "home grown". If i am missing someone, please advise. It seems this a reflection of the teams inability to sign free agents or make lasting trades. Does anyone know of a team that has so many players that have been "home grown"and so few players added through free agency or trades?
  5. The Kings have the uncertainty of re signing Gaborik. Willie Micthell and Regehr are aging players. I think moving Franzen and Kindl for Voynov makes perfect sense. It takes the pressure off LA from resigning Gaborik, after all Franzen is such an offensive threat, and Kindl theoretically can provide LA with a veteran defenseman to replace two aging veterans.
  6. I think Voynov would be a perfect fit for wings, offer up Franzen and Kindl. Salary cap hit is slightly more than $4mm.
  7. I am just glad the Rangers are stuck with St. Louis. A few folks here were clamoring for the Wings to sign him, thank goodness that did not happen. he is softer than happy huddles.

    I did not see any physical play from Callahan. i have read post after post how much he is grinder, tough on the puck. perhaps in the AHL but i did not see it tonight. in no way way shape or form am i contributing his lack of performance to tonight's loss, just an observation. Perhaps i was expecting more based on others postings on how good this kid may be.

    Howard 13-14-9 Monster 14-4-3

    I believe that he is still injured. the last two games he was unable to exert any pressure on his right leg, and he was slow and out of position. That is not a healthy Datsyuk. He was knocked off the puck with ease, that is not a healthy Datsyuk. He is 35 years old and he is the captain of team Russia playing in Russia, so i can entirely understand why he wants to lead his country in the Olympics. I just hope that this is not the last time we see him play for the Wings this season.

    Did anyone else notice that Jurco was not on the ice near the end of the game, last 3 to 4 shifts, Alfie was in his place. I sure he did not get injured.

    As some one who resides in St. Pete Fl and that has had a chance to watch Tampa Bay for the past 15 years, I recall a certain Stanley Cup winning coach here who pulled the same stunt, allow certain players to chronically play poorly but bench one guy, goalie or otherwise, and then he soon received his walking papers just to end up in NY and now Vancouver. Bert on the fourth line, seriously.

    I could not agree more, Andersson lost Ribeiro twice in front of Howard which resulted in two goals. Not too mention he lost the face off on both of those goals. He was very weak tonight, not sure why.
  14. I find it a bit ironic that Yzerman wants to do away with fighting when his lightning have one of the most undisciplined goons in Radko Gudas.
  15. Does one forget how the Big Rig ragged dolled Perry a few years ago?
