Ericsson standing around on both goals.  Please bench this big turd for the next game.  




#2598663 Knuckles vs Numbers - The death of the enforcer

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 April 2015 - 02:25 PM

 

Abdelkader doesn't "fight" much, but he is known around the leage as an enforcer. Now that he is scoring he fills that role pretty well.

 

LOL.  Around which league is he known as an enforcer?  He's one of the worst hockey fighters I've ever seen.  


Best definition Mr Bob Probert....may he rest in peace

 

His 87-88 season 29 goals, 33 assists and 398 PIM!!

 

Incredible season.  To spend that much time in the box and still score so many points.  

 

BTW, I'm more partial to Link Gaetz's 1992 season.  48GP, 326 PIM.   :lol:     




#2598244 ECQF Game 3 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 3 - DET Leads series 2-1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 April 2015 - 10:36 AM

So for everybody who said Smith would choke the puck up and blow our lead, it didn't happen. What did happen is Smith contributed to offensive puck-position time with good skating, outlet passes and offensive pinches. Thatta boy Smithy! 

 

Consistency is his problem.  That's what separates good from bad players.  He needs to continue to play well, not have one good night and then look like a train wreck the next.  

 

Hopefully, being benched sent him the right message, but likely not, because the problem with Smith is mental not physical.  Nobody has questioned his work ethic or determination.  He just makes silly decisions sometimes, and I'm not sure if benching a player fixes that issue.

Pav loves the ladies.

 

Oh crap.  Then Hudler has this trophy in the bag.

That's one big ankle.

If anyone can find me a picture of Stoll and Erin Andrews snorting coke off the bowl of the Stanley Cup, it would be much appreciated.  




#2596837 Smith in. Marchenko out for Game 3

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 April 2015 - 12:18 PM

Just don't let him sit at the end of the bench.  

 

:lol:




#2596835 Sharks & McLellan part ways

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 April 2015 - 12:17 PM

What teams are looking for new coaches? Leafs, SJ?

 

Wings after the season, most likely.

 

I'd love to have McClellan.  He knows what it's like to win playoff games at the JLA in recent memory.  




#2596729 Is Joe Louis Arena a tough place to play?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 April 2015 - 08:45 PM

There is no such thing as a tough arena.  Just a tough team.  

 

Was the JLA a tough place to play when the Wings sucked in the 80's?  Is the Staples Center a tough place to win at now that the Lakers suck?  No, they're not. Same thing with so many other stadiums in sports.  There's nothing imposing about the Patriots' s***ty stadium, but because the team is good, it's a tough place to play. That's the way it works.

His wife has already said that she doesn't want to live in Edmonton.

How did Abby become such a important part of this team

 

Because we've never been able to land a scoring winger in the top 6.  We tried with Cole, but he got hurt.  


Mike says Abby is playing Game 3. We could use him.

 

We could have used him in game 3 in the 2009 SCF also.   :glare:




#2596395 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 April 2015 - 06:06 PM

He was never meant to be a top pairing guy.  Just like Helm or Sheahan aren't meant to be top 6 forwards.  Further evidence of this team's overall lack of talent.

Man, I was really hoping we were done with Howard.  Didn't want to see him back so quickly.

We need Franzen to come back with a new look.  'm thinking something like this.

Then, he will channel his 2008 playoff form.

That wasn't a penalty.  Babcock needs to stop bitching, and Dekeyser needs to not go down so easily.
