  1. I think all this keeping/releasing policy depends on FA market and negotiations with FA players. Not every FA is not available i.e. does not want to work in detroit.
  2. so far sharks own red wings in every aspect. you take pealties when you're step slower.
  3. it has been discussed already here ad nauseaum. Ogood was projected starting goalie but he did absolutely everything to loose his job. Later team had no chance than ride on Howard because team deperstely needed points. there was no room for errors anymore. in short : without Howard = no playoffs.
  4. . this is called salary cap. Holland had no room for manouvers. And no, not every hockeyplayer desperately wants to sign with Detroit in spite of horribly biased "LGW view"( this is my preventive respons to "ohwhyohwhy Holland did not sign X player" Howard has been very pleasant surprise so far. he has done already more than anyone expected anyway. Btw, Nabakov has allowed softies at every game, but as long as they're winning, is not worth of mentioning. such is life. In basketball players miss layups but in next time make the last second 3 pt shot. There is no need to overanalyse every allowed goal and make doomsday predictions surpassing even maya 2012 prophecies.
  5. if detroit is better team,it is time to show it. for every detroit good scoring chance San Jose has had 2 or 3 or so.
  6. outplayed so far... honestly I do not remeber the last time when I got the feeling after first 2 games that opponent has been remarkably better in every area...
  7. very true. wings is enormously lucky to trail only 1-2.
  8. 1. you figure out that gane starts for you 4 AM. 2. is it alrady weekend? no? KABOOOOOM! at 4 o'clock and try to explain to your sleepy wife what da hell is going on. Also you pray that no OT because of you have to go at work around 7 or so...coffe diet for the rest of the day. Weekend: stay up. sleep during daylight and ruin all plans what your lovely wife has planned for weekend.* *mental sticky note. You must compensate later all this mental stress to your family life caused by NHL schedule.
  9. My point was that some here do not have to take everything as wings-related eg. "I like ovetchin because of he is enemy of crosby and crosby is enemy of red wings" or "I guess /insert player's name from Red wings roster/ would have said something more politically correct" Ovetchin said what he said and this has nothing to do with um...zetterberg or crosby.
  10. ovetchin is not paid to gain symphaty in LGW forums. So, discussion from this point of view is aburdity.
  11. you can add also that 1st half of the season they were due to known reasons very poor on D, yet they finised strong in D related statistics. series is not over yet, and there is still time for maya prophecies so no reason to panick:)
  12. calls happen...sometimes those "grey area" decisions favour you, sometimes not. at least fiddler comment shows that there is no worldwide conspiration against of red wings as many idiots tend here to believe ( and after falling 1-2 behind here were many...)
  13. and...what is wrong with that? POs for new expansion teams definitely help to boost popularity of the game...IMO definitely better that spamming one canadian name....
  14. what? there is no league wide Howard promoting maschine??? Bettman sucks!
  15. I simply warned that Le Brun did not say what journalist so desperately tries to claim. But first posters curse LeBrun ....for what?
