#2241819 Jiri Hudler Appreciation Thread

Posted by The Secret on 05 January 2012 - 04:48 PM

I'm glad he has picked things up and in turn upped his trade value. I hope he is used in a trade before Invisible Jiri Hudler takes to the ice in the play offs again.

Red Wings only here... I've lived in Calgary, Montreal and now Ottawa and I have gone to see games in each city but I will NEVER wear anything but Red Wings gear. Lol, my wife is from Montreal and is a Habs fan, I won't even drink out of her Canadiens cup that she has.

...trade him

#2225581 GMs to discuss the 1-3-1 forecheck

Posted by The Secret on 15 November 2011 - 05:30 PM

That's based on the presumption that the Tampa players would have done the same thing against a trap defence, and just stood there without playing the puck. If they play the trap themselves, I'm almost certain they'd be willing to at least try and attack it. I was at the home opener in Tampa, and the fans want their team to win. They may not be the oldest and wisest hockey fanbase there is, but they're still proud of their team and sell-out their arean most of the time. Playing this trap style to get some defensive stability is a lot better for them than getting beat 7-4 in their first home game, to their closest geographical rivals.

I'm not trying to get on anyone's nerves in here as I love posting about my Wings. Just from a completely logical point of view, playing a trap (although boring) is a solid defensive strategy, unlike the offensive strategy that was adopted by Philly.

You aren't getting on my nerves... we are just not seeing it the same way. I'd rather see my team play exciting hockey and lose 7-4 then adopt the rope a dope strategy and bore everyone to victory. Shows a lack of defensive creativity on the coaches part imo. Standing around in the neutral zone is not playing hockey in my eye's.

Trade invisible Jiri Hudler finally

#2219778 This team screams for a trade

Last time I checked Filppula was leading the team in points...

Perfect, increases his trade value.

#2219688 Assistant Captain - Tomas Kopecky

Posted by The Secret on 29 October 2011 - 07:19 AM

38 goals, 68 assists, and 98 points and counting in the NHL.

2 Stanley Cup championships.

What have you done lately?

Right... Boyd Devereaux has a Stanley Cup ring also. Maybe they should pick him up and give him an A also? And Devereaux had 67G 112A and 179 PTS

#2197143 This is why Commodore was the best signing ever...

If he lays a big hit, can we coin the term "he gave them the blue screen of death"?

Adding Commodore 64 provides some much needed "byte" on the Blue line of death

...I support Commodore 64

DOH, sorry for the double post!

#2186114 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

I'd roll the dice on this for the right price... He's big, strong, can score. I think he'd be a great Red Wing even if he is half the player he was but it HAS to be at the right price.

I hope Invisible Jiri will finally be traded.... will be a good riddance imo

#2161957 Have you ever seen.....

Posted by The Secret on 30 April 2011 - 09:36 AM

No, actually this stat line says it all for this game.

Shots: SJ 46; Det 25
Score: SJ 2; Det 1

They give up 46 shots to only 25 and you guys are bitchin about dives? 18 shots in the 2nd period alone? Sheeyaat.

Half way thru the 3rd my wife said "One goal isn't going to do it for this game. The Wings better pick it up". She was right.

Dive schmive, the Wings had no jump after the 1st period.

You got it man... Besides the 1st period its was all Sharks. How much time did we get hemmed into our zone in the 2nd period? The entire first 10 minutes was spent in our half of the ice. Niemi didn't seem to know what a puck looked like after a while and we still couldn't score on him on the few chances we were able to get it in that far.

#2149470 Throwing an octopus at the Joe no longer allowed

Posted by The Secret on 15 April 2011 - 10:15 AM

I guess all the ppl who throw their hats after a hat trick will face the same penalty? I can't see how an Octopus would cause anymore "Bodily harm" then a hat.

I like the way he's playing lately... as Mickey would say "with a bur under his saddle". Its nice to see the big guy step into the odd check and drop the mitts if its called for. Keep it up Bert!

#2139402 3/30 GDT: St. Louis Rams 10 at Detroit Lions 3

Wow, one bad game and the bandwagon Wings fans are jumping off. Please delete your account off the site and go join the ranks of the Canucks. Some members on this site are an absolute embarrassment to real Wings fans who back their team.

Poor play, bad habits, and lack of focus and intensity this close to the play offs warrants these reactions. Just because we don't all wear our rosey red Red Wing glasses doesn't make us any less of fans. the truth is this team hasn't been the same since that bitter loss to Pittsburgh and I feel some new blood is in order. Who knows what happens this year but of they can't win at home and we end up with home ice advantage... well you tell me what's likely to happen come play offs... Oh right, they will flip that imaginary red switch right and all the problems will go away! If this game doesn't serve as a wakeup call then we are in for some big BIG disappointments come play offs and an early golf season is quite likely.
