#2385466 Six outdoor games in 2014 for NHL

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 April 2013 - 08:50 PM

How exactly are they going to do ice outdoors in Los Angeles?

 

Typical of the NHL to ruin a good thing. There's no appeal when you do it six times.

Strong night for both Nyquist and Andersson. They have sustained some pressure and are hard on the forecheck.

It's not exaggerating to say the Red Wings have three players. Everything is dependent on Jimmy, Z and Pavel.

How bad of a line is Franzen - Filppula - Cleary?

I have more confidence in the fourth line scoring a goal.

The skills competition deciding the extra point for the second straight night in a playoff race.

Gary's thrilled, while everyone else is disgusted. They gotta do away with this garbage.

Quincey out, Lashoff in on Sunday please.

We don't have time for Quincey to readjust to the game if he's going to play this poorly in the process.

Positive finish to the second. Getting the next goal early in the third would be huge, as they won't have their legs playing back-to-back.

Jimmy is going to be busy.

Franzen - Filppula - Cleary

Not willing, can't and won't score. Get Nyquist who actually generates chances on a skill line.

Franzen bringing the effort. Does he ever drive the net? Two lazy floaters on goal from the outside already. At least Abdelkader and Cleary try to play in the tough areas.

The disparity in skill and speed in just six minutes so far is unreal. Jimmy is the only one playing.


#2383537 4/11 GDT : Sharks 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

This team can't win at home for anything.

Not a bad performance overall, but moral victories feel pretty empty with everything at stake.


#2383260 4/11 GDT : Sharks 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Every game looks like the Nashville series lately.

No speed, a bunch of perimeter shots that get blocked and a complete unwillingness to play in the tough areas of the ice. If you can't beat teams with skill, then you better have the tenacity to score some dirty goals.


#2382847 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 10 April 2013 - 08:55 PM

Born and raised near Toledo, so it was natural to root for the Detroit teams. My favorite sport to play as a kid was basketball, so my first genuine interest was in the Pistons during the Grant Hill years. I remember the back-to-back championships, but they don't stand out as much to me because I was younger and hadn't fully come to understand and appreciate hockey.

 

Needless to say, the Wings have been my biggest passion since the early 2000's. Hockey is the best sport in the world and the Red Wings exemplify everything I would want in a professional organization. 2002 and the sheer dominance was unbelievable. The 2008 run is my personal favorite though because that group put on a clinic every night in puck possession. 

 

It's really a privilege to have watched the Red Wings and their success throughout my life. When you also grew up cheering for the Tigers and Notre Dame Football, it's very easy to take the Red Wings for granted. They were always the one constant of success and joy. I definitely appreciate the memories and all of the legendary players more now looking back.

This is why they can have a lockout again in seven years.
 
I'm at fault too, but hockey fans are overly loyal.

Euro Twins!

Damn, if only Pavel could show up.
