In Topic: Anybody think Gm 2 was OVER OFFICIATED?

Face-offs are ridiculous. Hover your hand, drop an object and get out of the way. Wtf is so hard?!?

Because too many players (on both teams) are encroaching on the faceoff circle before the puck is dropped, trying to get an edge to get to the puck first and win the draw/control the play. This is why the centers keep getting tossed. You want the linesman to just drop the puck regardless of who's jumping into the circle early? I bet you'd change your tune if it were a Shark who jumped in early, helped win the draw, got a quick shot off and scored a goal. If all you want is quick draws, then why bother having the other players on the ice not taking the faceoff stay outside the circle at all? May as well let them all in there together and indiscriminately jab at the puck, huh?

Yeah, I agree that the faceoff delays are a PitA, but if both teams would stop trying to cheat on the draw this wouldn't be as much of an issue. The linesmen are doing the best they can to keep it fair for both teams, which is why both team keep getting tossed from the circle.

If they want to stop the teams from cheating as much they ned to start handing out delay of game penalties to the teams that get tossed twice in the same faceoff. That might curb some of the jumping in too early.

Not to mention, Marleau has often been invisible in the playoffs.

I've hardly seen him in this series.

Yes, I know. It's been a bone of contention over at LGS. We're hoping he pulls his head out, soon, but he can go hot/cold in the playoffs. Kind of a streaky guy. We'll see which Patty shows up for game 3, I guess.

Once again the final score is not what we saw on the ice. The red wings for the 2nd time were outplayed by the skarks. No way! The only line that can hurt the sharks is the first one. This is mainly due the fact that we don't have a good (that can make the difference) 2nd line center (Flip???? OMG).

Hope that if we lose this series, Holland will make some changes and stopping thinking that flip is a great player or that he needs time to step up. Sorry but this is unacceptable.

For next year: 2nd line center (Marleau, Kessler ...), get rid of: Flip, Miller, Draper (sorry), Ozzy Lids: new contract, but for far less than his actual salary, if not possible... bye bye

Sometimas if you wanna improve, you have to make changes.

When you stated that you need a second line center (Marleau, Kessler) -- did you mean players of that ilk, or were you thinking of somehow acquiring one or more of those actual players? Because I gotta tell you to scratch Marleau off your wish list -- GM Doug Wilson is so in love with Patty Marleau that he will never ever trade him away or fail to sign him to contract extensions once they expre. Further, Patty loves the area and and has taken a hometown discount to stay on more than one occasion. And the real kicker is that Patty's wife wears the pants in the family (she doesn't even allow him to order what he wants at the local Peets Coffee), and is a local girl from SJ and will never allow him to leave the area. For better or worse, Patty Marleau will be the first SJ player to play his entire career in San Jose and get his number retired by us.

Hello Mike!

Good show.

It takes ages to get a confirmation email from you.
I really wanted to participate, but I'm not sure I'll remember what those confirmation emails were about by the time I get them.
I really tried though. Even had a few informational videos lined up for your members in reply to a couple of legit questions.
No trolling or anything of the sort.

Too bad.

When I eventually get them, this series will hopefully be done with. Most likely to your chagrin,

Mike should fix your registration shortly. He hand checks all registrations to keep out the bots and make sure you're a real live person, but he is very on top of things with the site.
