#2217878 Jimmy Howard will miss Tuesday's Game

Posted by korrowan on 24 October 2011 - 10:36 AM

"Craplin" is 1-1 and has a shutout. He had a miserable game on Saturday against arguably the best team in hockey. If Howard had the same performance I'm sure you would be calling for his head, too.

Craplin did not even look like he belonged in the NHL Saturday and a shut out against the Avs is hardly worth writing home about.

Great another loss. I have zero confidence in Craplin and McGarbage.

#2215794 2011 MLB Season Thread

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 16 October 2011 - 07:08 PM

A crappy way to go out, for sure. Despite that, though, this team was a great time. Like GoWings said, it was a close series that could have easily been 3-2 Tigers headed back to Texas. I'm not ashamed to say that the Tigers lost to the best team in the American League and I'm proud of them for getting where they did.

Let the off-season begin. Illitch is talking about big free agent signings and the Tigers have some obvious holes to fill, but are still in a really good spot to do it all again next year.

Yea, a great season despite the disappointing end. If you told me at the beginining of the season we would have made it to game 6 in the ALCS I would have been super happy with that. That means we did a lot of good things to get there and we did.

Illitch has said he is looking to add another big bat during the off season. I have no idea who that could be but my guess is maybe a 2nd or 3rd baseman. That's about the only hole we need to fill once Boesch comes back and now that we have Young. We'll see though, it was a good season none the less. Now time for the Lions and Wings to give this city something to cheer about.

They are 70 MPH pitches down the middle in batting practice. It was cocky to say, especially when he failed to show up a couple games. Furthermore I'm sure he could jack 10/10 in batting practice if he really wanted to. Again, they are 70 MPH pitches down the middle, I would hope he can do that seeing how he is the best hitter in all of baseball. They might even be 60 MPH for all I know, figured 70 was a nice, round number


Get Real

It was very fun to watch, no doubt, I'll agree all day with that. Not hear though. Keep your mouth shut, take care of your business and you'll do fine. You ever hear any Red Wings opening up their mouth?

Didn't think so - Go aboot your business

I wasn't upset with Cruz taunting Verlander, Cabrera started it. It's not like Verlander did anything out-of-the-ordinary special in the playoffs anyways. Once in a lifetime regular season, meh post season.

I fear the backlash

I never even heard of Cabby saying anything but let me get this straight. You're upset that Cabby said something during batting practice when Cabrera has always been a light hearted guy who jokes around at all times but you're cool with Cruz taunting our pitcher in the middle of an LCS? You're sure you're a Tigers fan?

#2216069 Filppula is "too nice".

Posted by Guest on 17 October 2011 - 08:04 PM

i also didn't post when he was on pace for zero points after 2 games. that would have been optimum trolling potential, if that's what i had in mind.

Like I said...

i really think you need to get laid, by filppula. you've obviously got a major hard-on for the dude if you take such offense anytime anyone dares to suggest that he might not dramatically increase his point total all of the sudden.

#2215801 Eaves needs to be in every game

Posted by stevkrause on 16 October 2011 - 07:29 PM

He is EASILY one of our 11 best forwards when everyone is healthy (let alone top 12)... the fact he's been a healty scratch at ALL is a problem... I love the way Miller and Emmerton have been playing and they've both shown they deserve to play, so it's a difficult situation, but Eaves flat out should never be a healthy scratch... I'll go one further that he needs to see PP time, yes, I said it. Babs wants another R handed shot on the point for the PP - problem solved.

He is too good to not play.

#2215644 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 15 October 2011 - 10:36 PM

Wow. we made it a whole 4 games before this thread popped up.

So you're asking if he's worth it 4 games into a three year contract?

#2215641 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by UP Wings Fan on 15 October 2011 - 10:19 PM

Vote all you want but that's not the way it works.

Wow, you're a wise one!

#2215640 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by P. Marlowe on 15 October 2011 - 10:16 PM

My vote is that we keep Kindl up, send Ericsson down.

Vote all you want but that's not the way it works.

#2215127 Abdelkader pounds Lapierre

Posted by Doc Holliday on 14 October 2011 - 01:28 PM

Last ngihts game is a textbook example of how it can be a pretty damn big factor.

I'm notorious for thinking fighting is more than just a side show for goons and anyone who thinks that I will call an anti fighter til the day I die because they dont realize the impact it can have on a game and team.

I don't think I have ever said that. You have me confused with someone else.

I think players can get sparked up by a fight. On the other hand, so can the other team. That is why I don't put AS MUCH stock into the benefits of fighting as you do. There is a big gray area on which team gets more of the jump from it, and I don't think there is anything wrong with having one opinion or the other. My issue is creating strawmen simply to prop up one of the opinions.

Personally, if there was a player who I wanted to have his clock cleaned last night, it was Ballard. The guy was grabbing people, acting tough towards our smallest players, and in general acting like a ******.

#2215092 Abdelkader pounds Lapierre

Posted by Doc Holliday on 14 October 2011 - 11:49 AM

Abdelkader on the Lapierre fight: "He asked me to go and I said yes. It was good to give our team a spark, especially after being off."

The team was playing like s***, and he realized it and went out there to spark them. Needless to say it worked and the difference was noticeable,anyone who wants to say fighting has no effect whatsoever on a game is clueless.

I think Abdelkader has really cemented himself as a solid middleweight his last 3 fights or so and has looked feistier this year than he did last year. When hes on the wings with Bert backing him up hes a real bruiser.

Look forward to a lot more of this from him and Bert, that third line has been sick :clap:

Get off your podium, already.

#2215122 Abdelkader pounds Lapierre

Posted by Doc Holliday on 14 October 2011 - 01:01 PM

Was there a noticable difference before and after? Yup

Are you the type of person who would deny this effect of a hockey fight to all ends? Yup

Does it feel great to have proof that the wings players also agree it can have a spark, contrary to some people's ridiculous thoughts on here? Definitely

Like I said, get off your podium already, and just appreciate the damn fight. Also, I have never said that fights don't spark a team. I have simply said it isn't as big of a factor as you would like to make it appear. You are notorious for pegging anyone who doesn't see fighting the way you do as an "anti fighter". Just pump the brakes.

I guarantee you we've won many, many games where it was a matter of the refs making a bad call against the other teams that gave us that little extra *something*, and I can also guarantee that you didn't give a damn, you were just happy that we won, like every other fan.

Don't. You don't know me. I know how I feel and although all wins feel good winning a hardfought fair game feels better.

I'm thinking when the first loss comes, it's officially the end of the season. The bandwagon fleas begin to fall off.

Haha, true story. I still remember when a friend of mine who is a Tampa Bay Lightning fan had season tickets during all those crappy years. Everyone who showed up to the games were real Tampa Bay fans. Then, the team got good and won the Cup. He said that the cup winning year was fun, but all the bandwagon fans jumped on. When they regressed, it went back to the way it was. Now with the team getting good again, the bandwagoners have returned.

Personally, I would rather have a good team and deal with the bandwagoners than have a crappy team and no bandwagon fans. Ask the Lions fans how they have felt the last 8 years.

Character assassination won't do you any good, sweetcheeks.

You don't have any character left to assassinate. So it was a fruitless effort. :D
