#2469440 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Happy new year guys and gals :-)

 

Can't believe the monster didn't get the start unreal, he played well and made some outstanding saves.

 

This will be the biggest and best WC game ever, two original 6 teams going at it with light snowfall, so bummed. My DVR is more than ready. That being said, I think we are going to see a shootout.

 

Monster has a groin issue.  If anything, Petr better be ready to go.

I was telling everyone that if were to go to any of these games it would have been the Alumni not the WC.

Awesome stuff, I'm happy to get to see Stevie on skates for maybe the last time. He didn't look too hot out there but it was still Stevie (I believe him when he says he hasn't skated since he retired). :tounge2: Sergei on the other hand still looks NHL caliber. Him and Slava skated circles around people out there. Mickey looked great too!

 

Actually Stevie did say in an interview after the first period it gave him the "itch" to play again.

I think it's so cool that Kocur is wearing the #24 in honor of Probie.


did Nick play in the first game did he?

 

No, he just did the honorary puck drop.

Per St. james:

Luke Glendening on the ice today at practice, Tomas Jurco is not.

So Glendening gets to play both outdoor games n Jurco gets none? What a load of crap that is.

Poor kid.

 

I don't get it either.  Babcock frustrates me more and more.  What, just because Glendening does well in outdoor Griffins game he gets the call up????  It's the AHL for goodness sake, not the NHL.

Really? You have to be kidding? What other young D let alone any rookie makes so many mistakes game after game after game? I suppose you wanted to give Schwartz another year coaching the Lions too. 

 

WTF are you talking about?  You obviously haven't watched Ericsson.  Besides wth does a coach have to do with a young, rookie defensemen?  BTW I hate football and could care less about the Lions so I have no idea why you even bothered to bring that scenario up.

Well I definitely agree with that.  Sorry if I misunderstood the intent of your original post.

 

No problem :).  I guess I have faith in Smitty turning out to be a pretty good d-man down the pike.  I like his snarl too.  I wish we had a little more of that on this team besides better decision making as a whole with and without the puck.

I just hope that people can afford the ticket prices and the seats are not miles away from the ice :confused:

Jesus, it's as if because you're on the internet it's accepted to act like a ten year old imbecile. It's a constant bitchfest on just about everyone's part, where people wake up each day and decide to express their daily whims(few of which hold any sense). The only thing that is a bigger mess than this team right now is this board. It sounds like a majority of you look at the previous page and see everyone bashing on a given subject so you do it too because it's the cool thing to do.

What an impulsive bunch. Howard's not some second year tweener with no track record. He's 29 years old on his fifth season in the nhl. He's stood on his head and performed among the leagues top goalies year after year. Took the team team to the playoffs, on a major account of his consistent play. Way to not overreact everyone.

But you're right, sit him for the season, and see if he can come back next year.

 

And you're no better for bitching yourself?  Hey this is how we fans act.  It doesn't matter what team you cheer for we all act the same.  We are passionate about this sport and our team.  :)

Khan and St James tweeting that babs is starting howard for the winter classic

 

And this is why I can't stand Babcock.  This WC is not just a friggin show it's still a regular home game and we need to win.  Obviously Babock doesn't get this and hasn't for a long time.
