This team needs to win without Pavel in the lineup. Hopefully they start doing it tonight.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Pavel Datsyuk > x (where x is the name of any active hockey player)

8-1 Wings. :siren: :siren: :siren: Benching 7ouongo in the 1st period, and sadly, ruining Jimmy's great game in the last minute of play. :ranting: LGRW.


Fixed that and now you are the one to blame. :P Not supposed to say the word or think it! :ph34r:

Should be an intense game tonight. You know the Wings want to extend that home streak and furthermore win a big game without having Pav's in the line up. LETS GO WINGS!!!

I've come down on Monster a couple times in the past but to criticize Monster (and me by proxy) so heavily is a little unfair. He may be wrong about the timing of the GDT but he's certainly correct in saying this is a big game that's getting a lot of attention from fans (and the media). It's the two western conference powerhouses meeting for a game that could determine first place overall in the NHL - plus that whole streak thing you guys got going. It's one thing to criticize when there's a valid reason, but to criticize like you have based on a statement that is at least partially correct seems to me to be more reflective of how you feel about the Canucks and their fans rather than anything particularly shameful that Monster said.


I come down on him because he seems to have this giant urge to remind people how important this game is to the city of Vancouver. I'm not saying it's not a "measuring stick" type of game, but when it boils down to it..... it's the regular season and its a game worth 2 points. Now, do you still want to consider this game a "measuring stick" with injuries and key players missing? I'm not exactly sure you can measure yourself to a team that is missing one of their key elements, which forces lines to be shaken up, which forces missed chemistry. Now, back to the original point.. he also doesn't need to find himself all over the board simply saying "Oh it's because of how big this game is!", ect ect ect and not say anything else. Hell, i'm all for talking hockey. It's all I do, hockey and politics. If i'm not watching hockey i'm watching politics. If he cares to post on this board, atleast bring some conversation to the table. From what it seems, all he's trying to do is troll and get excitement out of people. That's all i'm saying. Did I go far with the Vancouver comment? Yeah, i'll admit that. I honestly haven't had a good experience, or met in real life a Vancouver fan that actually wants to have a genuine hockey conversation. Maybe I haven't run into the right fans of Vancouver, but that's simply it.

Well Datsyuk is certainly an integral part of the Red Wings, (not sure about other injuries) but in his case at least, no team is going to go far if only one player is relied on to win the games. Datsyuk is the player I've seen most mentioned in this thread. Injuries happen to all teams and as a Canucks fan i'm certainly not going to feel like it's a hollow victory if we win - and I'm certainly not going to feel shame if we lose. Good teams also have a way of picking up the slack when a player goes down and the Wings are nothing if not a good team. Hell, the proof of that is already there in Joey MacDonald.

But I digress, no matter if Datsyuk, Howard, a Sedin or whovever could be injured, it's still a game that's attracting considerably more attention than just your normal run of the mill regular season game.

If Vancouver wins, they tie us for 1st place. Therefore, the Wings need to hammer Vancouver.

Leaving at 1:30 with my cousin, who's a Canucks fan, for the game tonight. They're talking about a snow storm tonight for Michigan-Ontario over night, but we're going anyway! The Weather Network says the worst will be at 4am, but we'll be back by 1:30-2am anyway, so no worries.

I made a comment on my facebook about us going, and that after tonight we may only be cousins by name only :lol:. He replied, "Remember I have the advantage, I have the car keys".

Edit: It's always a tough decision, on which jersey to wear. I have Yzerman, Shanahan, Holmstrom, and a Osgood jersey t-shirt... I think I'm leaning Osgood t-shirt.

Have a safe drive home, who knows what we'll get tonight. Of course enjoy the game and your cousin will hopefully be a good sport about their loss. :P

I'd go with Ozzie but that's just me, since Homer is the only one still on the ice go with him...he may not be here much longer.

Thanks, it'll be a fun night. We've enjoyed seeing this game become more important by the day. He sent me a text a few days ago saying "the streak will stop at 23!" We'll see. He's not a trash talker, and neither am I, so we'll be fine either way. Actually his wife is a big trash talker, but she's not coming.

I did an edit on my post, I think I may go with Ozzie.

It's always great to have fans of other teams here, to get a different and admittedly less homer perspective. That's as long as they're not overly antagonistic and trolling.

So this is a polite and pre-emptive play nice in the GDT to everyone. The Canucks fans are welcome here as long as they don't troll. Let's just keep it within the forum guidelines about the game and hockey in general.

consider this a friendly warning from the ref before you end up in the box. :P

f*** my night class 6-9 (central). I think Quincey will score on the PP. Hopefully he can spark the pp replacing hudler who will probably move to forward or just be banished from the pp. Also hope Kronner or Quincey or someone catches one of the sedins with a death check.

Huge one tonight if the Wings can pull it off. It'll be tough without Dats, but I expect Z or Fil to step up tonight.

Will be a huge game. Franzen reallllly needs to step up and Cleary needs to be sat for someone younger and faster.
Wings win, though.

At the very least, I would love to see some Miller time or Abby on the 2nd line in favor of Cleary until he's closer to 100%.

A bit of an interesting subplot to the game tonight.

David Booth has played great this year since the Canucks got him from Florida. He was born in Detroit and apparently has never played a game at the Joe anytime in his career. I imagine he'll have plenty of friends and family at the game. I also imagine he's undoubtedly highly pumped to be playing a game in the NHL near where he was born.
