Yet again, the league reminds us on how unprofessional like refs they have.

don't you think he took retribution a step too far? he ended moore's playing career. i'd imagine you guys might have a different view of the guy if he wasn't playing on your team.


Dany Heatley killed someone and admitted to drinking beforehand, and still only got 3 years probation. I'd imagine you might have a different view of the guy if he wasn't playing on your team.

#1964813 Game 1 Thursday

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 28 April 2010 - 08:11 PM

What a farce. The Canucks and s***hawks have had two and one more day, respectively, off compared to the Wings yet they start Saturday instead of our bulls*** Thursday start?

Retarded.

And don't tell me that the NHL won't start the Wings on Sunday (since apparently the HP Pavilion is booked on Friday/Saturday) because the NHL started the Hawks/Predators a day later than the other 7 first round series.


#1964391 Why do other NHL teams' fans hate the Wings?

Posted by Mors on 28 April 2010 - 02:05 PM

They're bitter and jealous because the Red Wings have excellent owners and management, along with superior coaches and scouts.

Eh, no biggie. If Hank and his teammates can't be bothered to take it up with Yandle, how bad could it have been?

Just before the game ended, I was telling they guys I watch with that my team MVP this year is Ozzie. I believe that he has decided to prove that if he isn't going to play every day that he still can contribute to this teams success. He has stood up for Howie, helped deflect the media scrutiny ( see game 3 postgame ), and made sure there has been no disruptions in the locker room. Then I look back to the TV and it seems like the first guy over the bench to the net is Ozzie. I thought it was fitting he led him though the handshake line.


RE: Bolded

Last night I noticed Ozzie was indeed one of the very first guys to pat Howie on the back, and he didn't just tap him and walk away, he did the back up thing. He chatted in his ear, probably a bunch of good jobs, then walked away with Howie side by side. From the hockey I have watched over the years the back up is usually the last one out, and the two talk goalie talk as they walk back to the bench, or it is a tap on the helmet and walk away. Not with Ozzie and Howard.

Ozzie, I think, sees this as a chance to extend his legacy. If Howie does indeed become the next netminder in Det, he will forever give credit to Ozzie.

---That sounded like I was saying Ozzie's motives were selfish, I don't believe they are, I believe he like Dats, Z, Lids, etc.. put the team ahead of his own needs and helped Howie, I just think he realizes that you can be remember for what you did when you weren't the man just as you will be remembered for what you did when you were the man!---

I said from the time Ozzie signed his last deal, he is the perfect back up for whomever becomes the starting netminder, the experience and the mindset he has, what a great tool to have after/before/during a game.

I happily confess that I was 100% wrong about Howard before the start of the season. Based on Jimmy's prior starts I prayed that Ozzie would stay healthy this year. The kid honestly scared me. It's amazing instead how far Howard has come in this short time!

#1964161 First Round MVP- Hank Zetterberg

Posted by DirtyD on 28 April 2010 - 10:19 AM

I don't think that Stuart is gettin' enough love in this thread. Despite putting up an absolute stinker in game 6, Stuart was overall pretty consistent throughout the series and it really paid off in his stats.

2g 4a 6p +6

He tied tied with Lids for the series for top scoring D-men on the team and tied with Hank for best +/- for the series. I can't help but feel like this series was pretty much a mirror image of his entire season; overall very solid and consistent, but he is prone to make some big mistakes that people tend to remember more than all the solid minutes he eats out there.

Nonetheless, I think that I'd still give #2 to Datsyuk because he had, I think, his best playoff series since Dallas in the Western Conference Finals in '08.


#1963829 Bring on the Sharks --- Again!

Posted by sharkfan20 on 27 April 2010 - 11:53 PM

Should be a good series. I'm expecting a physical series right off the bat. Can't wait till thursday.

ANd series should start on thursday, a concert at hp will be on friday and saturday as the eagles are coming to town. Second game should be on sunday, ij ust hope the sunday game is not in the morning.

But should be a good fought series. If the Sharks win, our pysch will be wayy upp since most of our playoff ghosts\demons are there and if they lose, they haveno shame to lose to the wings.

Here to a good fought series. I've been waiting for this series since 2007. Should be a epic series.

Do I need to post a Video of the Pens skating around Joe Louis with the Cup last year? If I recall, the Pens were in that terrible East conference last year as a 4 seed and had zero chance to win on here. Sound familiar? The Wings, from that dominant West conference, had home ice (as a 1 seed?) and lost. Your star Lidstrom choked like a deep throat porn star in the waning seconds of Game 7.

Damn you guys are annoying. Can't wait to bring home our 2nd Cup in a row in that 'cakewalk' you guys are giving us to the Finals.


What is wrong? Everyone is pretty much calling the Pens the best team in their conference.

You're not a very good troll are you.

#1961444 Officiating - A Completely Different Perspective

Posted by b.shanafan14 on 27 April 2010 - 12:05 PM

Agree with the OP. The most frustrating part is watching a game even out on the PP just for the sake of perceived parity. If one team deserves more penalties, they should get them. This is how the Ducks have played for years, basically they can only get penalized so much, keep toeing the line and everything will eventually be let go. A penalty in the first period should be a penalty in the third period, and vise versa.

The inconsistency is the most irritating part of NHL officiating, i.e. the Hal Gill rule in which holding up a player like a pass protecting NFL lineman is interference UNLESS Hal Gill does it. Its silly to think about, but refs are all too aware of the penalty count and even more aware of a players tendencies leading to some excusing penalties because a player like Gill has ridiculous size or calling others because no matter what their eyes tell their brain, their brain says Holmstrom stabbed the goaltender. Ideally, they wouldn't have human referees, they would have indiscriminate robot penalty measurement devices which call a spade a spade everytime, and at the very least the human refs could do a much better job of taking on that mindset. Until that happens, the NHL officiating will continue to be a joke, rules will be enforced and not enforced and rescinded in a whimsical fashion, diluting the feeling that Team X won because Team X deserved to win.

i would love to see Boston and Detroit play for the cup. atleast if detroit was to lose that series it wouldn't sting like losing to the pens.

just wait until next year with hopefully a healthy savard and the addition of most likely seguin.


Pittsburgh will have a cakewalk to the finals again, but the good news is that any one of the remaining Western teams could beat them. The only thing they have going for them is Crosby and we all know how easily Zetterberg shuts him down every year.
