#2556755 Where were team-mates on the Smith headshot

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 December 2014 - 01:15 PM

Smith was actually the best fighter on the ice at that moment.  

 

But yes, the Wings don't stand up for teammates enough.  The Weber on Zetterberg play is a great example.  The league is now about having smaller middleweights who can play hockey and fight.  We don't even have those on this team, for some reason.

At least somebody gives a s***.  

 

Smith used to be a better fighter before he joined this milksop team.

Franzen has been playing the worst hockey of his career as of late. He looks pathetic out there.

 

Why wouldn't it be the worst hockey of his career?  He's in his mid 30's now.  

 

Not like he's going to get faster, work harder or score more at this stage.

Ericsson needs to randomly grab that Kadri and start pounding away.

I don't know what positive is. I know what real is. I'm never positive when I watch sports. I use logic. Take care.

 

I'm with ya.

I hope Babcock's strategy of tiring out the Leafs' shooters in the first two periods pays off in the 3rd.  




#2556018 Vaya con dios Damien Brunner

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 December 2014 - 04:34 PM

My everlasting memory of Brunner is that one between the legs inside-outside drag that he always used, and which never once worked at the NHL level.  But man did that not deter him from trying it over and over and over.

 

It was nothing compared to Samuelsson's move, where he'd put the puck on his backhand, skate in a circle, and do nothing with it.

My everlasting memory of Brunner.  

 




#2555855 More Mantha stuff.....

Damn.  I thought this thread would be about former NHL'er, Moe Mantha.  

 

And his awesome moustache.  




#2555780 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 December 2014 - 09:42 AM

What happens if Howard and Helm face each other in practice on a breakaway, over and over again?

 

The resistible force versus the movable object.   :lol:

How do we know they all suck at it. We've really only seen datsyuk, Nyquist, and tatar. They suck so much at it that it never makes it to a 4th or 5th shooter.

 

Zetterberg has always sucked in shootouts.  Franzen hasn't taken many, but from what I remember, he sucked too. You really want to see Helm take them?  Or Abdelkader? 

 

Howard is 50th in shootout save % under ESPN stats. Could not even find him until I realized there is a second page....Ouch

 

Now I know why Wings players are so lazy in shootouts.  They're used to playing Howard in practice, and instead of deking, just shoot at the 5 hole.

I don't even know what to say. That was a pitiful loss, PITIFUL. And half of thef****** arena was Leafs fans, that's embarrassing. If we play the Leafs in the playoffs they'll have home advantage the whole series. Good job "Hockeytown"

 

Leafs fans only act loud on the road.  At home they sit around like blind mice with their mouths shut.

Terrible. Work on closing those legs. Huge weakness.

 

Howard couldn't stop me in a shootout.  He's terrible at it.  




#2554943 Senators fire head coach MacLean

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 December 2014 - 05:24 PM

What was Paul supposed to do? He has a star defenceman who is worse in his own zone than Kindl, and the only "star" he has up front is lazy as f*** (Ryan). MacArthur and Turris on your top line? C'mon man, their second liners and everyone knows it. That defence core? Babs couldn't make the Sens a playoff team IMO. Cameron will have them down with the Sabres in no time, he's a garbage coach. I remember the WJHC when he was Canada's bench boss... *shudders*

 

I didn't realize how bad their roster is, until I looked it up.  


 

I'm sure you could show me all sorts of graphs and tables about how awesome McGrattan is if I'd provide you with the construction paper and glue sticks too.  That website looks like it was made on MSpaint.  And yes, anybody could have put it there.  Which is why the internet is FULL of low brow, half assed, crap.  It's not exactly exclusive. 

 

Presentation aside, it's a lot of content and is the best hockey fight site on the internet.  It is exclusive.  Just like this is probably the best Wings site on the internet, and is special for that reason.  Whether you like it or not is a different story.

My boy?  I have a long and very explicit hatred of fighting in hockey.  That's well established around here.  You're the one who loves fighting, but can't face up to the fact that Colton Orr consistently mashed McGrattan's face whenever they fought.  Which is precisely why I bring it up. 

 

I have a hard time figuring why you enjoy fighting so much, but then idolize the second best fighter of his era.  It's a little bit like if Scottie Pippen was your favorite Chicago Bull in the 90's. 

 

Sigh.  Here's McGrattan's fight card.  Scroll down to the Orr portion.  Please don't bring this argument up again.
