  2. Philly vs. Buffalo

    Couldn't believe it when I saw it. He used his glove hand to just take his helmet off, threw it to the ice, and yelled to the official that his helmet is off. Killed all momentum that Buffalo had on that 5 on 3. Unbelievable.
  3. Pittsburgh vs. Tampa Bay

    Not sure how you're putting either the Doan hit or the Helm hit in the same sentence with either hit in tonight's PIT/TB game, especially Kunitz's elbow. Kunitz was head hunting, didn't try to hide it a little bit, and could have potentially ended the career of a player who already has a history of concussions. The other hit was a charge, and he left his feet, but I'm not sure it was suspension worthy. Helm's hit was a pedestrian body check behind the net that shouldn't have even earned a penalty, and Doan hit a player that was already falling. Kunitz deserves 2-3 games (a single game suspension is likely but ridiculous), the other three deserve nothing extra, in my opinion.
  4. WCQF Game 3 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Coyotes 2

    Luckily for Lids, if your prediction comes true it'll be impossible for the score to be 3-1, Nick to have an assist and finish -1. I'm gonna go with 4-2, tense for the last 5 minutes or so of the 3rd, but Dats puts the empty netter in on his own this time to seal it. LETS GO WINGS!
  5. WCQF Game 2 GDT: Coyotes 3 at Red Wings 4

    From the Coyotes GDT: Yeahhh.. What was it, 8-3, 9-3 penalties last game?
  6. Four (5) Changes Scotty Bowman Would Like To See

    Your example is ridiculous and not at all supportive of your argument. In a shootout, it's player vs goalie, whoever scores the most wins. Seems like a pretty fair way to decide it unless you do continuous overtime, which could be absolutely ridiculous during the regular season. Let's say the wings are playing back to back games, requiring travel. If the first game goes to three overtimes, how is that worth it? Not only will the fans either have to leave the game without seeing the end, or potentially stay in the arena until one in the morning, but the Wings would be exhausted for the game the next day. And using your point system, if you're the Red Wings, and you play what is essentially two full games (120 minutes of hockey), and give it 100%, grind out a tough win and be absolutely exhausted the next day.. you get one point out of it? I'd rather put the puck in my own net and come out fresher the next night and hope you can get three. I couldn't disagree with your post more. Regular season, shootout makes sense. Games end at a reasonable time, and it's actually skaters trying to score on goalies, nothing like a hardest shot competition. In the playoffs, obviously a shootout wouldn't be the best way to do it, but when you compare a single point in the regular season standings, and a playoff victory, obviously the continuous OT makes a lot more sense in the playoffs than it does in the regular season.
  7. WCSF Game 2 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Sharks 4

    Must-win game. I've got tickets for game 3.. here's to making it an interesting one. 4-3 Wings, with the Sharks scoring the third one late in the game. We keep them out of it for the most part. Stu, Lids, Hank, Franzen. Let's go Wings.
  8. 2,000 Posts for Game 7 Win

    Never posted in one of these before.. in like four years. Seems like a good time to do it. Let's go wings.
  9. Octopus Help

    Well.. that's a bummer. If anyone thinks of anything while I'm on my way to the game, I'll be able to check this thread on my phone. LETS GO WINGS!
  10. Octopus Help far as I know, they don't throw anyone out at the Joe. Any help?
  11. Octopus Help

    I'm going to the game today and had my heart set on throwing an octopus.. Superior Fish is closed on Sundays. I'm leaving in an hour and a half, so speedy responses are greatly appreciated. Ideally a place that has them boiled or can boil them for me, because I won't be heading anywhere but the Joe after picking it up. Thanks so much!

  15. ROUND ONE - Video War?

    Why not give this a shot? We have plenty of talented photoshoppers here but how many can put together a video? Here's my submission, feel free to add your own as the series progresses EDIT: I also hope it's okay that I used L3T5G0W1NG5's picture at the end of the video.. I thought it was fitting. And thanks crotty!
