#2665650 4/7 GDT : Red Wings at Boston Bruins, 7:00 ET

Hard to do when the ownership doesn't grow balls and put pressure on the GM.  This team's problems start at the top.  Very few teams in sports are successful with owners who don't care about the team.  

Agreed.

 

'We like our team' Holland has been complacent...Many point to our 24 yr streak, but they also forget that much of that success belongs to guys not named Holland.

Holy hell.
What an awful start.
I was at my nieces band concert, so I didn't get nachos or beers.
This is probably my fault.

Well young man...Crack open a 6-pack of your choosing, and get them nachos'n'cheese in the microwave...Pronto!

They look like they're skating in mud

Maybe I'm just an a-hole in saying this, but I don't buy the 'they played a game the night before' bullsh!t.

 

Many of us here have been up 24 hours plus without sleep, or eating, and we continue to function, but pro athletes...There's always some lame excuse.

Game On!

Is it possible for you to control our Dmen so they don't screw up?

I'm still on somewhat of a high from last night and already cracked open a beer....(or 4) Let's do this.

Grilled some NY Strip steak, and boneless pork ribs...Having some Woodford Reserve bourbon...I am ready for this!

Am I supposed to be 'high' when looking at this?

 

Or will it get me 'high' if I keep staring?




#2665025 4/6 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers at Red Wings, 8:00 ET

Posted by F.Michael on 06 April 2016 - 09:18 PM

this has a different feel than other games where they took time off or allowed the other team life

As of now the Flyers are pressing in our own end too much...That needs to change.

Right, can't worry about that, just keep winning.

This right here.

 

Gotta win these last 3...Finish the season on a strong note!




#2664694 HNIC Rumor: Datsyuk to return to Russia

Posted by F.Michael on 06 April 2016 - 08:46 AM

No hard feelings from me if both Dats, and Hank move on...Their obviously nearing the end of the NHL careers, and gave it their all while Red Wings.




#2664693 Stamkos out 1-3 months

Posted by F.Michael on 06 April 2016 - 08:44 AM

Sigh all the doctors in the article were from Toronto...so I guess we know where he is signing this summer.....I kid I kid. 

I would be shocked if Stamkos didn't sign with the Leafs come July 1st.

 

Honestly Babcock changes the situation in Toronto. Yes, they were really bad this year, but it's because they're rebuilding the team from scratch.  But the new management and coaching will draw in decent talent, finally.  It's one thing to be a bad team with no direction (Toronto the past...well...forty years?) but a bad team that is knowingly starting from scratch and is expected to make the right moves?  Stamkos might be willing to forego a Cup for five years to be part of something like that. 

 

But back to his injury and Tampa's hopes: I think Tampa is still a good team.  They could still get out of the first round.  The East is so weak this year, especially the Atlantic, that anything could happen.

When Pat Quinn was coaching the Leafs they were consistently one of the better teams in the league.

Is that the alcohol content of what you're currently drinking?  

Last night I was enjoying some Buffalo Trace bourbon - 45% abv ;)




#2664687 Fixing this mess....

Posted by F.Michael on 06 April 2016 - 08:30 AM

I think I speak for many when I say that Schenn is not the answer to our defensive struggles...

Schenn is a solid stay at home type, but if you expect him to contribute offensively, and spend alot of time skating with the puck - well he isn't that type.

 

He's a bit bigger, and more physical version of Quincey.
