You must be annoying to know in real life with your ridiculously pessimistic attitude

This is going too well... there will probably be an injury or something like that. This is going too well.

I feel dumb saying this but I really think Osgood should get the start and Howard could maybe use some rest. Seems like the Wings always get off to a slow start and or don't play that well against Oilers. Ugh I dont know.

Sammy was always the problem and the solution here. He would always screw something up, but make up for it by scoring a big goal. I wish he was still here.

I had two reasons for him being a ******.

His quote about Team Sweden, then what exactly is the second? Having the audacity to leave the Wings and seek out a team that had the cap room to pay what he was worth and where he could play a more prominent role?

To me that doesn't make him a ******, especially because he was very upfront about why he signed with Vancouver.

Seems like after he left the Wings he turned into a ******. First team Sweden, then the team that actually made him relevant.

How's he being a ******? His actual quote from the article is:

"I don't really care who we play," said Samuelsson, who has a career-high 30 goals and 53 points this season. "But yeah, it would feel a little weird to play them in the playoffs. But there's a first time for everything. If that's the case, I look forward to it."

I wouldn't expect any player to say they feared or didn't want to play their old team.

And honestly I kind of liked it when he spouted off about Sweden not picking him for the Olympics. He definitely deserved to be on that team. It was fun to hear an honest answer.

Well played.

By the way-- I hate that the NHL, as a league, bend over for network tv worse than any other sport. We have zero bargaining power. NBC wants the Cup Finals moved ahead a week? Bettman says "yes sir!".

Holy crap that would be cool looking. Really bizarre but definitely cool.

Didn't Gretzky play an exhibition in Vegas back in the 90's?

This whole idea of Crosby vs. Ovechkin in the Winter Classic is such a crock of s***.Pittsburgh just played Buffalo a few years ago in the Classic.Jesus Christ,there's many more teams besides s***tsburgh in this league.Yes,Crosby vs. Ovechkin would be great,but seriously what about the other great hockey regions that haven't even been involved in a Winter Classic yet,like Minnesota,St.Louis,Montreal,Ottawa,Toronto,Vancouver,Calgary,Edmonton,Colorado,New Jersey,etc.I don't care whether NBC doesn't make profit off of Canadian teams.That's a crock of s*** too.If the Winter Classic is really about promoting the game of hockey,they will put the games wherever they would get the most exposure,regardless of thef****** profits involved.The money will come later if the game is exposed in the right place.

#1927639 Babcock: Goaltending the best since I've been here

NEVER?, I repeat my question, NEVER felt comfortable with Ozzie in net?

Since when has LGW start taking so many drugs?

I mean I knew there were a couple of other potheads on here, but never having felt comfortable with Ozzie in net, really? Not even when he was backstopping the team to back to back SCFs.

Sure his regular season the past 2-3 years has not been stellar, his post season has been, well Stellar. Before that he was a very good to great goalie.

To say you never felt comfortable with Ozzie in net means, to me, one of two things:

You became a fan after '06 or you are an Ozzie hater, this is like the people who claim Crosby sucks.

No, he is an Ass, but a great hockey player, and Ozzie may be struggling lately (at the end of his career I might add) he was a terrific netminder and will go down as one of the greatest to wear the winged wheel!

1. Bertuzzi loses the remainder of his bottom teeth by actually blocking a shot by catching it mid-air with his mouth
2. Cindy Crosby shown flinching when he sees Jimmy Howard coming down the handshake line after the Wings sweep the Pens in the 2010 SCF at Pittsburgh. A reverse angle shows Crosby cowering behind Bill Guerin.
3. Pierre McGuire loses his job trying to cut a lock of Crosby's hair while he's in between the benches.

Would everyone be complaining if the Wings got another Winter Classic?

The Wings have been showcased. Winter Classic, Sweden and they always have 4 slots on NBC. Yes, I would like them to play in another Winter Classic but I think other teams should have a shot at being in one before we see repeating teams.

Are you kidding me? That last game, before the shootout, was a pure snoozer.

Wasn't Crosby's fault Ovechkin doesn't come to play and only cares about money and women.

there are other teams in the NHL and other fans... How is it fair for a team like the Penguins to have the spot light this draws on your team and revenue.... Twice before 20+ other teams get a shot...

what about teams like the Rangers, Devils, Minnasota, Colorado.... there are other teams that really could use the TV time...

Or why not phoenix-L.A in phoenix?
