There is a difference between rough and cheap. Backes crosses that line too often imho. There is a difference between hitting hard and hitting to injure. I love a power forward who hits hard. One who hits to injure has no place in the game.

No, he was interpreting the rules as they were written at the time.  BTW, there's no such thing as a good goal or a bad goal.  It's either a goal or it isn't.

 

 

Don't take this the wrong way, but...  (not based on this post specifically, but the last several posts of yours in this thread)

 

How old are you and how long have you been a Wings fan?  (and follow up, are you related to Dan O'Halloran?  *wink*)

 

Anyone who has bothered to watch Wings games over the past several years, Wings fan or not, will tell you that O'Halloran most definitely has a negative bias against the Wings, whatever the reason may be.  You are literally the only one who disagrees here.

Yeah, this is somewhat of a "must win" but I don't see the effort I'd expect to see in a team needing two points.

As was mentioned, he harboured an especial hatred for Holmstrom.  So many good goals waived off for non-existent goaltender interference.


Two minutes for farting into the crease. ;)

He's a big strong guy, his hits injure.  Not his fault.  He doesn't go around kneeing guys, and as far as I know he's never been disciplined for head hunting.  He injures guys because when he hits them, he drives through them.  Exhibit A:  Kent Huskins earlier this season.  Perfectly clean hit, decimated the guy. 

 

As for the rest of his game, he's a little dirty, in the same way that Crosby is a little dirty with his cross checks.  It's not that bad, and not that big of a deal.  If Backes played for the Wings, and did the exact same stuff, we'd all be screaming "c'mon, be barely touched him". 

 

Just like how everybody came around on the Tootoo thing.  He didn't change his game, we just realize it's not as bad as we though when he played against us.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Been a Wings fan since the late '70's?  You?  I'm mature enough and unbiased enough to know that an official doesn't work 1000 games in the NHL if he "hates" a team.  I'm "literally" the only one of about a dozen people on a Red Wings hockey board that doesn't agree?  Somehow, I don't think that would qualify as scientific data.

The winter classic jerserys?  I like the Leafs, still not a big fan of ours though.  Maybe they'll grow on me too though, who knows...

So when he waived off a Homer goal for having his skate in the crease, 8 years after that rule was rescinded?


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I agree, it's just typical fan over reaction.  They've been penalized more than we have today and people are still bitching about the officiating.  I'd say a game with three penalties, two of which put us on the PP, is a well officiated game.  What does everyone want, ten or fifteen PPs?

Tootoo passed up several shots that he'd have taken in the past early in his tenure here, which surprised me. That is what made me turn around. I understand the physics of a large body making impact.

If a guy is vulnerable and you know it, you don't need to absolutely destroy him from behind. FWIW I agree w/the hit on Huskins being clean.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Which data would that be? 

 

Watch Red Wings games from the past six seasons. That's about all I can tell you.

Looks like St. Louis' defense actually benefited from making those deadline deals.  

 

Either they're that good, or our attack is that bad.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
