#2040089 10/3 Pre-season GDT: Pittsburgh Penguins at Red Wings

Posted by 55fan on 03 October 2010 - 05:51 PM

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

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

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.

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.

Thank you, goal post.

His voice reminds me of Maltby.

Maybe someone should put a decimal in front of Miller's number. Then Kane will go for him.

Too bad Downey isn't still wearing that number. That would work even better.

4 on 4 is exciting, but I'd have rather had the PP.

Kane says hi to Ozzie. Too bad Mule isn't there to pull Kane's pacifier.

Oops.

Oh, well. Our boys have been looking very good for their comparative skill level tonight.

Wow. Hard to believe these are our "guys with something to prove" against their top ones.

Ozzie sharp so far!
