The Clutterbuck hit was much worse than the Gillies hit. Typical Colin Campbell, he has no idea what he's doing, no one else does either.


#2120268 2/22 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Pucks on 22 February 2011 - 01:17 PM

I wonder how many power plays and or 5 on 3's the Sharks will have in the first period?

That chick looks like your classic bimbo, disproportionate fake boobs and all.

I hate when idiot GM's make teams in our division better.

Check out they Jurco guy videos on there as well. Cool stuff.


#2115663 Pavel Doing his thing

Posted by Pucks on 13 February 2011 - 11:52 AM

Zetterberg is better defensively than Datsyuk.

Flashiness /= skill. That's something a lot of people, including Roberto Luongo, need to learn.


Good lord.

Wheres the choice for stupid f*cking poll?


#2113950 Jimmy Howard watch thread

Posted by Pucks on 09 February 2011 - 10:05 PM

I'm not commenting on his play as I didn't start watching until 10 to go in the 3rd. Was poor defense to blame?


They didn't start on time again. No focus or intensity, poor passing, missed assignments, got forechecked and outworked. That about covers it.


#2111373 Should Valtteri Filppula be traded?

Posted by Pucks on 06 February 2011 - 02:25 PM

Filppula isn't the kind of player you trade away, he's the type of young player teams covet.


#2056046 Mattias Ritola scores first NHL goal

Posted by Pucks on 01 November 2010 - 05:46 PM

I asked you a question.

You made the claim I ran away to HF and suddenly now I'm back, despite being active here during the playoffs and offseason, not to mention the entirety of the regular season.

And I don't even remember what we were arguing about last season.


I only remember because of your avatar. You defended Osgood as being fine and regaining the starting position and blah, blah, etc. to ad nauseum levels. After it was obvious you were wrong on our debate you were no where to be found for quite a while, except over at HF where I also read. The poster here that has a white fat cat for his avatar will remember the arguments as well because he also participated. Sorry don't remember his user name. There was like 2 different topics that were massive amounts of posts.


#2055671 Mattias Ritola scores first NHL goal

Posted by Pucks on 31 October 2010 - 03:30 PM

Matthias scored two goals in his first game with the Panthers. He turned out to be a lemon. You're being absolutely hysterical. Calm down.


Lol a lemon? He's a 22yr old 6'3" blazing fast young player scoring goals for his team as we speak. I wish all lemons were like that.


#2054524 Wings need a goalie

Posted by Pucks on 29 October 2010 - 12:18 PM

Look at how many games Osgood has played in the last year, of course his numbers aren't going to be that great.


And he did say in the after game interview that he should have had it, but he needed to get the rust off. I think he needs some regular games so get going. I understand that Howard is #1 goalie now, but you can't expect him to play in 99% of the games and perform well. They need to have a good back up goalie and Osgood can be that if given a proper chance.



Ok people please quit saying this it makes no damn sense. If Osgood played every game would he probably be better? yes probably, but the team would suffer for it. I guess we should take out Datsyuk and put in Abdelkader? Justin will improve his play right? sure but at a cost to the team. The best way for Osgood to help his team is to play less, and be a good teammate.


#2019365 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Pucks on 26 July 2010 - 12:28 PM

That article enforces the thought process I was trying to convey before all the clones derailed the thread. Those who think Helm and Abby are excited about Modano on this team are just being silly. Mike Modano will cost them money in their pockets, that's a fact. Being removed from a scoring line to get scrap minutes on the 4th plus PK. Those guys don't strike me as stupid, and neither are their agents. They have no leverage now being RFA's except to take a short term deal if Modano signs, and that's exactly what they're doing. We'd be much better off telling Modano to piss off and signing both those young guys to longer deals.

It will be interesting to see how the Mike Modano saga plays out. Will he retire? Will he go "home" to Michigan and give it one last shot with the Red Wings? (Detroit coach Mike Babcock said publicly he thinks it's a given Modano will be a Red Wing come October.)

To us, this is where nostalgia runs smack dab into reality.

Modano missed 23 games to injury last season while scoring 14 times from a mostly third-line position on the Dallas Stars. He averaged 14:18 a night in ice time and scored just three times on the power play. Modano scored just 15 times in 2008-09 and posted only 12 power-play goals over the past three seasons.

We're not sure exactly how he fits into the Wings' plans to rebound from a trying, injury-plagued 2009-10 campaign that saw them fall in the second round to San Jose.

It's not an issue of whether Modano has the will to lace 'em up in September or October; but what is his will to play out an entire season? That seemed to be an issue in Dallas the past couple of seasons and explains in part why the Stars made the choice to walk away from a player who has been the face of the franchise for two decades.

If we were Wings GM Ken Holland, we'd take a run at Bill Guerin or Paul Kariya to add veteran scoring punch and give one of your young prospects a shot at centering the third line. Less nostalgic, perhaps; but, in the long run, we're guessing it would be a more productive move with less potential for dressing-room headaches.


Outside I must :)
