    I'm dumbfounded. I like him, but that is a stuppppid contract. We tripled his pay? For four years?!?!? Jesus. If we really felt he needed a new one, why not 1.1 million, for 2 years? I don't get the money or the years. The Red Wings love guys with "intangibles", and apparently we are just going to load up on those guys and ignore the little thing called the "scoreboard". For the record I LIKE Luke too.

    Very little checking, very little intensity. I don't get it. We didn't set the tone, we did the typical passive Red Wings game plan, "don't make any mistakes, wait for them to" the problem is we don't capitalize. We should be slinging the puck constantly at their net and crashing it. Go for scoring 5, not for winning 2-1. We don't win those games.

    I want to know how that minor hook took his legs out from under him. Ridiculous. On a positive note, Kronwall was off the ice for two minutes.

    Of course the only guy with a letter on the front of his jersey I want back next year, is going to Russia. Kronwall was pathetic in front of the net there. Not just slow skating, doesn't hit, but good grief how do you let that pass through the middle? Team needs to get it together.

    Pretty much all the changes I wished for happened other than Mantha being up. I really want our guys to be ready next game, but there is a line of keeping emotions in check and not getting bullied. Smart this evening, but at the end there we should have kicked their you know what for going after Z at the end. Refs aren't going to protect us, and that pathetic point where Abby wasn't trying to fight and the ref was shrugging him off was a joke. I'd really like some protection there at the end for the guys. Abby being expected to fight everyone is ridiculous. Kronwall was beyond pathetic getting over there to help. Just tie someone up there! Smith seems like he will assist in that regard, and I hope some of other guys will step up when the heat is on. Nyquist needs to learn from Dats how to throw his weight around. He had a good game, and I appreciate the checking...ahem, attempts, but he needs some work on that.

    Yeah, stuck with Tampa announcers. I'm LOLing, how they are saying Larkin spun Bishop around. How does Bishop get his glove side in front of Larkin while 5 feet out there lol? WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    After yesterday: Frustrated on a lot of levels. All the veterans keep talking about "controlling our emotions". The only real emotional penalty I saw that mattered was the Abby one where he got squeezed into boards and retaliated. The vets and Blashill are sitting in the living room having dinner while the house burns, and keep telling everyone else, "sit down, don't worry, the fire department will put it out". We need some fire. Dats is the only veteran who is useful. He still has the skills, he still has the fire, and he is the only one who puts a decent hit on them. Kronwall is useless. Z is useless. E is useless and won't throw his size around. Tampa will try to goon it up in game 3, we better bring some size. The team is too passive. They should be trying to score every possession and never sit back. They can't. The D gets picked apart. I'd rather try to score 5 than try to win 2-1. We aren't going to be able to. Mantha needs to be up. Smith needs to be up. This team needs to be balls to the wall. This passiveness reminds me of the Pistons when it all fell apart. They thought they could flip the switch, and they would wait all game for it, and then it would be too little too late. Howard was out of position far too much. Too many times he was saved by a dman or them missing the net. Need a goalie change the rest of the series.

    Love how this team relaxes after scoring a goal and is down two. You'd think we scored the clinching goal and were up three with a pair of minutes left.

    Can we just say Petr is hurt? Please? Somehow this guy bumped his head and forgot how to play goalie and it is terrifying. Please offense, come through.
  10. What exactly was the penalty on Dats for? I'm at a bar and it is loud and crazy, but it looked like Kunitz was going in on him to initiate contact. Or, I could have already drank too much.

    How is it now of our guys know how to check? I'm pretty sure Datysuk would have our biggest hits highlights this season.

    I just watched a period of hockey played by a team of Hodors.
  13. Anyone have the hit on Abs (I think) from game 5? Where Stamkos got the hooking call and two Lightning players smashed into him by the boards (and I felt that one certainly left his feet).
  14. Good thing this happened so long ago.....
  15. I'm in FL listening to the broadcast. Interference is mentioned every other time. The roughing on E when he went for his head, the commentator said, "basically laughed and said what is that call? Then on replay saw it, and said well they need to call the interference!" Then on the Kronwall hit, "leaping headshot, but Stamkos was interfered when the puck got further down the ice". Are they playing who can say interference the most like Super Troopers saying meow? Kronwall hit didn't look to me. It is annoying that I am so apathetic about it. So many bad calls. Anyone see the Red Wings getting dragged down? Sorry, I usually don't post during games. Well, I really don't post much at all lol. I read you guys during intermissions.
