  1. Just read on Helm Street Lids is up for the Byng. Pretty Amazing stats. I'd liek to see a PIM/TOI comparison of the three... not that I'm going to do it myself... that sounds to much like the work I'm supposed to be doing.
  2. AAHH! I might be dyslexic, but not stupid. I'm getting a nose bleed just thinking about Lebda back in red and white and playing fwd. Oh the humanity.
  3. If Helmer and Flip are GTG, I'd like to see... Cleary-Datsyuk-Hudler Filppula-Zetterberg-Bertuzzi Franzen-Modano-Holmstrom Draper-Helm-Miller CDH have been pretty darn good lately, and Val and Bret usually seem to be good together.
  4. Anyone seen any "Pierre McGuire is a ******-canoe" signs?
  5. Yeah, the NBC commercial for Game 6 tomorrow. And all the clips were of the Wings getting checked and scored on, WTF? Although they did show Doan Face, which is hilarious.
  6. Rule 69: Interference on the Goalkeeper 69.1 Interference on the Goalkeeper - This rule is based on the premise that an attacking player’s position, whether inside or outside the crease, should not, by itself, determine whether a goal should be allowed or disallowed. In other words, goals scored while attacking players are standing in the crease may, in appropriate circumstances be allowed. Goals should be disallowed only if: (1) an attacking player, either by his positioning or by contact, impairs the goalkeeper’s ability to move freely within his crease or defend his goal; or (2) an attacking player initiates intentional or deliberate contact with a goalkeeper, inside or outside of his goal crease. Incidental contact with a goalkeeper will be permitted, and resulting goals allowed, when such contact is initiated outside of the goal crease, provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such contact. The rule will be enforced exclusively in accordance with the on-ice judgment of the Referee(s), and not by means of video replay or review. There is a common miss conception about the role of the crease, and it is also the reason the refs can call it on Homer just for looking at the opposing keepers.
  7. Seriously!? You've now ruined the only reason I haven't put my wife's DVD of this movie in the shredder. Hot women dancing on a bar in various states of undress. Is nothing sacred?
  8. Good thread. Re: I don't believe the problem lies with the team. I to am trapped in the DC area watching more Caps games than RW is just a fact of life out here and while we'd all prefer to watch the Wings the Caps play a good game (for the most part). The problem is with the 'fans' in the DC area. Many of the new Caps 'fans' are free agent Redskins fans and the have brought along their irritating and infantile behavior (if they win a game their destined to be 'world champs' for the next decade, but if the lose a game all is lost, trade everyone fire the coaches and start rebuilding tonight.) They lack any fundamental knowledge of the rules, customs and traditions, and they demonstrate no desire to gain a proper understanding. I actually had a 'conversation' with a couple of Caps fans claiming to be 'Hockey Buffs.' They didn't know the Caps had ever been to the Finals and then refused to believe that the Caps could have been swept by the Wings (they used this years standings as evidence!?) I grant that all teams have regrettable fans, but since the switch to red sweaters and Ovie's arrival it has become increasingly the norm.
  9. Might I suggest an investment in this DVD set, to really learn about your Hockeytown heritage. It includes the full, Fight Night at the Joe.
  10. The day I turned from mild mannered child into a true Wing Nut.
  11. Cause they lose to a winless goal keeper for the worst team in the conference when they can afford to be giving away points.
  12. There are lines that once crossed cannot be left on the ice, ask Mr. Bertuzzi. "The Code" doesn't work when a player deliberately crosses the line from playing hard to negligently or deliberately endangering other players.
  13. Anyone have or find a video of it (youtube)? One of my co-workers didn't see it and doesn't believe me. He's also a Caps fan, likes the Pens and doesn't mind Crosby, so even video evidence will likely not make an impression on the sea anemone he calls a brain. Hard to complain about much else in the game seeing as how the Red Wings apparently thought it was a schrimage.
  14. Better solution than not watching, but similar results on the ratings/message to the league.... Invite a bunch of friends over to watch. They then do not have their TVs tuned in, but no one misses out. Plus high fives abound when Wings win and if the refs give it away again your angry mod is already assembled, simply add torches and pitchforks! GO WINGS!
