#2279942 line combination website

Insert blueadams joke here.


What exactly is a "line combination" website?


#2279809 4/7 GDT : Blackhawks 3 at Red Wings 2

UGH! How did I forget that extra negative. The travel to Phoenix would have been worse, same with watching late games, but at least there would have been plenty of Wings fans diluting their White Out nonsense. Nashville fans get their playoffs tickets free in packages of Donettes at the truck stop, do some asking around about this "hockey" in the line to get in, mouth-agape listening to opposing fans explain it.


And the lack of TV exposure this series will likely get.

I hope this team enjoys flying to San Jose again and getting their asses kicked.


#2278773 Is 6th spot a better option?

I rather play within the central and let Chicago enjoy the long flights... And hope they take out SJ or La or whomever they play. I don't fear the Hawks currently.


The way the Wings have played the last month, I fear every team.

Powerplay is still an unmitigated disaster.

I know Boston made it last year with no powerplay, but this team absolutely needs one. We can't survive without it.

Nice comeback. Franzen looked alive finally.


As for Kindl.........

Who are you and what have you done to Franzen?

Letsgowings= Bi-POLAR


Most of my hate was directed at Kindl, actually.

So if not for Kindle, we'd be up 1-0.

If Lebda and Uwe Krupp had a baby, it would play like Kindl.

Where's our big deadline acquisition Kyle Quincey at?

Sign an enforcer Kenny, because your powerplayf****** sucks!


#2276980 Quincey suspended 1 game

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 April 2012 - 02:58 PM

He definitely isn't the reason for our recent struggles. But, he hasn't looked very good at all though. I'm guessing he gets 2 games.

Here's a question...I hate the guy, but would any of you rather have traded the first for Steve Downie directly? I'd still take Quincey, but not by much.


I wouldn't have traded the first for either of those players. Since we're going to likely finish 4-6, our first round pick would have been higher than where it would have been at the deadline.


#2276386 Playoff seeding & Divison winners

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 April 2012 - 12:28 PM

What if Detroit plays Dallas at some point later in the playoffs (not the first round), who will have home ice in that series? I believe it would be Dallas, but I'm not sure. If that's so, it would be ridiculous indeed.

But this isn't just a hockey problem. In the NFL, you often have 8-8 teams winning a division and getting a home game over a team with 3 or 4 more wins. Likewise, some 10-6 teams winds up missing out on the playoffs altogether.

Going back to the NHL, you sometimes have another issue, where the 8 seed in one Conference has a lot fewer points than the 9-11 seeds in the other Conference, who end up missing the playoffs altogether. That also seems unfair.
