#2043178 Wings' Datsyuk has fight fans among Blackhawks

Posted by 55fan on 09 October 2010 - 07:03 PM

Translation: Please don't beat me up tonight. :lol:

Really dig that Hossa gave him props though. I remember his fight 2 seasons ago when he wore the Winged Wheel and I felt like he really deserved props for that. He probably was jealous Pav remembered to tie his jersey down and he forgot to :P

I remember that fight. It was the night of my dad's funeral, and I yelled into the kitchen to my mom that Hossa was fighting and she left all my knitting, southern redneck aunts to run in and watch a hockey fight. Then she went back and was all, "Oh, I just don't like it when they fight. I get so worried that one of them will get hurt. We just got that Hossa boy this year. I really like him..." My aunts thought she was nuts.

I don't think that anyone who has played with or against Datsyuk can help but be in awe of him.

#2041911 10/8 GDT: Ducks 0 at Red Wings 4

Maybe this will add some meaning into my life.

Wings 1 (deflection off a Duck's skate)
Ducks 0

14 goals for the Wings called back. League stands by its officials. Other fans say we're paranoid and have delusions of persecution. The only goal counts because it occurs with less than 20 seconds left in the game and the officials realize they can't let it go to overtime since Babs' glare has already melted the ice to the point where they can barely skate.

Wings win. Ducks cry foul.


#2040424 Could Eaves be put on waivers?

Posted by 55fan on 04 October 2010 - 03:35 PM

I normally try not to get to upset about Ken Holland moves. But waiving Patrick Eaves in order to keep Kirk Maltby up as a 14th forward would be one...

I will not be happy at all if Patrick Eaves is waived.

Maltby will clear waivers, Eaves will not.

This, I think, is the biggest factor.
Malts will be waived over Eaves.

Pavel :D

Big man Cooke going for our enforcer. :rolleyes:

I can only hope you are making this up.

Unfortunately, no.

There are other people there so it wasn't entirely this kind of stuff, but this was the stuff that kept me reading.

Good thing this is a preseason game.

I've been lurking listening to Pens fans. What a hoot. Topics of conversation include:
Sid is the best and everyone else is just jealous.
Is Modano American or Canadian?
Is Modano married to Carrie Underwood?
Sid is the best and everyone else is just jealous.
Ovechkin is over-rated and will be bottom 6 soon.
Wings are old.
MAJOR discussion over where the Pens play.
Sid is the best and everyone else is just jealous.

It's been a hoot.
Best one: Pens are better than Wings because the Pens have won 4 cups and the Wings only have won 3.

Good on Mule. Can't fight but won't put up with that sort of nonsense.


#2039829 Canucks Hordichuk on waivers

Posted by 55fan on 03 October 2010 - 11:20 AM

The enforcer threads would probably be shorter if you guys didn't chime in with trolling crap like this.


And no, I don't want Hordichuk on the Wings.

Post of the day.

The Nucks don't need an enforcer. They have the Shinguard Assassin. One blast of his one-timer, and bones break. Just ask Cleary.

I don't want to lose anyone that we have for Hordichuk, but if we were really without any talent for our fourth line and were going to be running three lines anyway, I'd take him over someone who can't skate, score, pass, or fight.

I like Jiggy's mask. I'd like it better if pucks were flying by it, but it's lovely nonetheless.


#2039268 Eklund predicts Central division rankings

Posted by 55fan on 01 October 2010 - 09:15 PM

He got one thing right: He said there were no Canadian teams in the Central.

Give credit where it's due, and mark it on your calenders.


#2036894 9/25 Pre-season GDT: Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by 55fan on 25 September 2010 - 09:34 PM

What is Babcock doing to this group? Setting them up to lose? Is this like the group in which he wants to test their mental toughness or something?

My guess is that he wants to see how they perform under pressure, not only for tonight's contest, but to see who should be on the 4th line this season and to see what is coming in the future.

It also doesn't hurt for the GR coach to see them play in this situation and can work in player development.

He probably didn't expect them to win, but maybe he promised to bring cookies if they did.

Nice PK.

Not that it's any less than I expected from the Griffs, but man are they getting undressed out there.

Considering how lopsided it is, they aren't as naked as all that.

If it was the regular Wings, I'd be worried.

Turco sure likes to play that puck. Odd to see him in a Hawks uniform.
