I like cleary and he usually creates some opportunities even if its just for himself. I just literally never noticed him even in corner scrums

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

Great win.........the kind that will bring the Sharks' best effort of the series in game 5. Still a huge uphill battle, but if somehow the Wings take it Saturday nite, thoughts of their choke history might get back into the Sharks' heads.

THANK YOU. Everyone seems to be talking about how Cleary has been invisible. Fact is, last year in the playoffs Cleary played with Franzen and Zetterberg and had a great run (good enough to earn him an invite to the Team Canada camp). This year, Cleary has played primarily with the grinders: Helm., Draper, Miller, Abs, Eaves, etc. Babs has acknowledged the fact that Clearly is probably the most versatile player on this team. It is surprisingly difficult to find a player who can fit in perfectly with the top-6 and the bottom-6. Bertuzzi is not nearly as capable of playing with the grinders and, as he showed tonight, can still put up points with the big boys. Thus, Cleary is going to continue to play with the bottom-6 for the time being and playing the role of a checking forward seamlessly. If we need him, Cleary can move up to the top-6 and start producing immediately.

He is one of my favourite players and I don't think that he deserves the heat that he's been getting around here and I applaud Lidstromboli for pointing that out.

Cleary has proved that he is as versatile a player as your going to find in this league.

he is also making a ton of money for a grinder so you better at least get noticed. Im not saying he has to score just make some grind line plays helm abby and miller. They are not scoring but i think they are playing well

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

Just got back from the game. Had a blast. The Joe was rockin and the crowd had the Wave going around 3 or 4 times in a row in the 3rd. There were some Sharks fans in the smoking area during the 1st intermission and the whole crowd was yelling ASSHOLES and some were mocking that shark thing they do with there arms. All in good fun though.

Impressed by the victory and obviously Franzen. The thing that approaches Greek-tragedy levels is that one bounce here or there in the last few games and this series is tied instead of where it's at now. But no one can do anything about that now, you've just got to keep on rolling.

If they win the next one we could very well have a series on our hands... Fingers crossed.

I really thought the Wings would do well in SJ because of how convincingly they won in SJ during the regular season. I know it's a different atmosphere but I still felt that way. Ah well. I hate it when the opposite of what happens in the regular season is what happens in the playoffs.

I don't think they did play that poorly in the Shark Tank, but it was just Murphy's Law out there. Blown calls and Nick'sf****** traitor stick and all of the sudden the losses start mounting. It's very obnoxious to me because I feel like they should be in a much better spot than they are, but oh well, what's done is done.

"The one thing about tonight, they finally took more penalties than we did," said Babcock. "Going into tonight, we were 22 times short-handed and they had 11. But they got their 5-on-3 again tonight, so they've got the market cornered on that."


I just found this gem of a quote from Babcock on ESPN. :lol:

Overrated? The Sharks aren't even overrated in the Bay Area.

I'm not gonna get into a woofing contest here. I'll just let the action on the ice talk for this game and the series.



You were saying?

Just finished the game.

Nice to see the Mule has been released. Still a long way to go, but anything is possible against the San Jose Chokes.

Go wings.

Yeah, that particular instance stuck out to me too. Over the years watching sticks break at key moments like that makes me hate players using composites.

If they win Game 5 I'm going to be excited as s***. It'll definitely make this into a series again. Lopsided still, but winnable.


No, it's definitely excitement.

LOL 33page GDT I guess I wasn't the only one who wasn't watching this live... :hehe:

Sad to watch Stuart go down, Ericsson picked his minutes up very well almost looked like 08/89 Ericsson there..

Funny to watch the penalty box with 4 sharks sitting there, I hope that detroit didnt get all the powerplays in this game but will continue to get some on saturday too.

Did Cleary play this game? I never saw him.... :unsure:

Man what a night last night. We rolled back into Kalamazoo around 1 AM. Last night was probably the most fun I've had at JLA (and that includes watching the Wings shut out the Pens in 2008). To say the joint was rocking was an understatement. I've never felt the upper bowl floor shake that much before. It was LOUD, LOUD, LOUD in there. Given the 0-3 nature of the series I thought the crowd would be "light"... man was I wrong! It was shoulder to shoulder most of the time out in the concourse during intermissions.
