#2416014 The ugly elephant in the room

Posted by WINGS TILL DEATH on 30 May 2013 - 07:31 AM

Red Wings are out so who FN cares. I wont give them the TV ratings.

If it comes down to Chi and Pit, i'll root for Pit, they will always be my second favorite team even if Crosby is a whiny *****, hes got talent. Im a huge fan of Letang and Malkin, Neal is good too. Plus i wanna see Iginla hoist the cup. I never wanna see Kane or Toews lift the cup ever again.


I might actually agree with you that on. Where I differ is I don't like Shaw and Bickell. I don't like seeing disrespectful punks win.

#2407649 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by WINGS TILL DEATH on 20 May 2013 - 02:58 PM

I agree that Smith hasn't been very good.  But I'm guessing a lot of teams would love for the Wings to dump him for nothing.


Smith is playing over 19 minutes a night, third among Dmen behind Kronwall and Ericsson.  And now doing it against the best team in the league.  He's getting exposed for the rookie he is.


Imagine if the Wings had played Kindl or Ericsson like that.  They had the benefit of a better blueline so they could play lower pressure bottom pairing minutes.  Smith is getting thrown in the deep end.


It's painful to watch, but this is the team we have right now.  It's trial by fire.


I wish people would keep their opinions out of our roster. We have a professional coaching staff that gets paid well to make these decisions.

I will trust Babcock over any one on these boards any second of any day.

Tough loss. Could have went the Wings way. Really hurts not scoring on the 5 minute pp, Wings score 1 or even 2 on that pp and it's game over. Oh well, Wings going back to the Joe and will win to force a game 7!!


Wings hit twine instead of three posts games over. Sometimes the bounces don't go your way.

It's amazing how the posts go from OMG Yea to Wow we suck we shouldn't be in the playoffs.

Calm the F down and watch the play. It's a tie game. People who are making coaching calls just shut up. You're not on the coaching staff for a reason.

#2397227 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Agreed.  I don't like these exploding upwards hits but don't want to get into a frame by frame breakdown. 


I'm guessing 2 games?  He go a 5 minute major in the game and an ejection.  It seems like that factors into suspensions.  He also has no suspension history and they typically weigh missing playoff games more.


I miss the old days when these hits were common. This is the Eurofication of the league. Their goals is to make it more like soccer. I'm on the verge of dropping the NHL.

#2393278 Someone needs to change "JIMMY HOWARD!" to "JIMMY...JI

Posted by WINGS TILL DEATH on 01 May 2013 - 12:00 PM

Jimmy or Howie works fine.

#2393223 Howard = Average

Posted by WINGS TILL DEATH on 01 May 2013 - 09:53 AM

This is stupid. Both earned goals were redirections while Jimmy was screened. This is the D's fault with all their turnovers. I'll take Bab's advice over some couch coach anyday. Howie stays and Howie wins it for us.


Why is it so hard for you to just admit the TEAM played poorly.
