    WCSF : St. Louis Blues vs. Dallas Stars

    I'm with F. Michael on this one, once the Red Wings are eliminated, I start pulling for the remaining team that has either never won or has gone the longest without winning, in this case I'm hoping for a Blues/Caps final, with the Blues winning it all since they have been around longer than the Caps by a few years. In all honesty though, I don't really care who ends up winning, as long as Chicago is out.
  3. Sorry for the low-res, hopefully you can still make out the face... Also, time to dust this off from last year in honor of game 3

    I hate Tyler Johnson

    Agreed 100%, something about his face makes me want to punch it, or see it punched. Reminds me of a Brad Marchand or Alex Burrows type, one of those spot-picking, non-stop chirping, pain in the @$$ guys that seems to particularly enjoy rubbing it in the faces of the opposing team and their fans. Too bad he wasn't the one Abby got a hold of to pound on at the end of game 2. Now that Blash is matching him up against that line, perhaps we will still get to see it. I'd go so far as to say all would be forgiven if Ericsson were to administer the beatdown.
  5. Haven't seen this one yet, thought I'd put it up: Didn't get to contribute much last year, looking forward to this one!

    10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

    No, he was a black ace, but he didn't play for the Wings in the playoffs until 09

    Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

    Looks like they weren't as far apart as some would have led us to believe. This makes me happy, Jurco has been my favorite of the kids so far. I just hope he gets utilized properly, if so the numbers will come and his confidence will return.

    Are you going to watch the game ?

    I already knew I was going to have to miss the first part of the game, but given the circumstances I will definitely be tuning in immediately when I get home. Like you said, game 7 is game 7. Given everything the Wings have had to deal with, to bail on them now is unthinkable for me, if they manage to pull this one off, I would be kicking myself for a long time if I chose to protest instead of support the team.

    2015 Round 1 Photoshop War: Tampa Bay Lightning

    Took me forever to get some inspiration for this series, but here goes:
  13. Callahan, for sure. I'd sure like to have him in the Winged Wheel, but man is he a pain to play against. Runner up, Tyler Johnson, something about his face just makes me want to punch him.

    Preferred Playoff Opponents?

    Tampa, for all the reasons stated above, plus I would get to go to a game. However, I like the idea of exorcising the ghosts of playoff past by taking out Boston, Pittsburgh and San Jose all in one year, throw in Montreal just to stick it to them, if only we could play Chicago in a bonus playoff round for good measure.

    Red Wings Target Mike Green

    ^This, as much as I love Tatar and Nyquist, in reality Jurco has a higher ceiling than either, plus he has size and enough aggressiveness to use it effectively. I really don't think any of the three should be considered as part of a deal for an expiring contract, and I think both sides know that. Like someone said, Andersson, Ferraro, and a conditional pick should get this deal done, Andersson is the odd man out in our logjam at center, Ferraro doesn't have much of a chance of cracking the 23 man roster and has a better than 50/50 chance of getting claimed off waivers for nothing, and a 3rd rounder that turns into a second rounder in 2016 if Green re-signs with us. With as many lopsided deals as we've been on the wrong end of lately, it would be nice to get a fair deal like this for a change.

    Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

    My point as not specifically what Babaock asked Jurco to do, I meant what players in a playoff situation are asked to do in general, go to the hard areas, play the body, back check, etc. which Jurco has done whether he is scoring or not. Could very well be other factors involved, but I disagree with this move on many levels.

    Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

    Total panic reaction and completely unnecessary! Jurco hasn't been part of the problem, he may not have been creating much offense but he has been doing everything else that he's asked to do. Also, Bert for Jurco makes our lineup slower, something I don't think we can afford with as much as we've been being outhit.

    WCQF - Series F - Blues vs. Blackhawks

    Not gonna lie, I couldn't be happier with how this series has gone. Wouldn't be surprised if Seabrook gets the banhammer for a game or two, that hit looked way worse on the replay than I initially thought seeing it live.

    2014 Round 1 Photoshop War: Boston Bruins

    Quick and dirty (just like Lucic):
  21. James Tiberius Howard = average goalie

    Round 1 Line Combinations

    I would go with: Abdelkader/Datsyuk/Nyquist Alfredsson/Legwand/Franzen Tatar/Sheahan/Jurco Miller/Glendening/Helm Kronwall/Smith DeKeyser/Quincy Lashoff/Kindl Hard to come up with a combo of Quincey, Lashoff, and Kindl on that bottom pairing that isn't cringeworthy, but Q has been making fewer bonehead plays lately, so keeping him with DeKeyser offsets the inevitability as DD can cover any brainfarts. Lashoff/Kindl is still a turd sandwich, just not a soggy one, limit their ice time and for the love of YFMB keep Kindl off the PP!

    WCQF - Series F - Blues vs. Blackhawks

    If you asked me two weeks ago, I would have said Blues hands-down, after Sunday's game, not so sure. I still think they will win, and really hope they do, it will be a very close series that could swing on a bounce or two, much like our series against Chicago last year.
