Is Bryan Marchment in the house?

We are getting nothing offensively.

It's apparent that the Wings last offensive gasp was in game 4.

Howard is the only way we can win tonight.


#1980142 Fess Up!

I'm ready to bash the team at the first sign of losing today.

:hehe:

I guess that means I'm expecting a good, desperate performance from us tonight.


#1979919 HBO Broadstreet Bullies Documentary

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 May 2010 - 12:18 PM

I was wondering if anyone will be watching the "Broadstreet Bullies" documentary on HBO these next few days, about the Flyers teams back in the heyday?

I watched it this morning, and thought it was very interesting, and would reccommend it even for fans who don't like the fisticuffs aspect of hockey. Say what you want about those teams, they were controversial, and had a huge influence on hockey in general.

Also, it's not often that HBO does a show about hockey.

Anyway, check your listings because it'll be on these next couple of days, and will be on today at 1:30 ET as the next showing.

If we don't win this game, our season is over.

Been saying it all year, so I think it's appropriate now to say it. :hehe:


#1979879 Possibility that Williams plays Game 5

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 May 2010 - 11:48 AM

Did Brad May s*** in Babcock's pool for him to not even be considered over those 2 players?

Ritola isn't used to big games and Williams is used tof****** up in them.

Give May a chance to come out there and give the 4th line some energy. This is his month of the year, literally. :D


#1979868 Luongo Not the Answer for Vancouver

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 May 2010 - 11:43 AM

Roberto Luongo was brought in to take Vancouver from perennial 1st and 2nd round exits to the next level as a franchise.

So far, they haven't looked any better in the playoffs in his 4 seasons, then they have before with Dan "freaking" Cloutier. They'll most likely lose to Chicago, and have another early playoff exit. He's had too many awful games in these playoffs already and seems to have little confidence in his game.

I know hockey is a team sport and the others guys haven't stepped it up either for them, but for all the praise this guy gets, I'm starting to agree with people who have been saying for years that he's overrated and isn't a good playoff goalie.

Maybe they'll win the series and he'll make me eat my words, but right now he looks like the most overrated player in the league, with lesser known goalies playing much better in these playoffs.


#1978836 Stanley Cup Winner?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 May 2010 - 09:55 PM

Votre amour pour les Penguins de Pittsburgh est assez dégoûtant!


Quel est votre problème - hein?


As they say in French....

Je ne sais pas


#1978739 Stanley Cup Winner?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 May 2010 - 09:19 PM

Sharks.

I don't think Montreal is a likely choice, or else I'd vote for them.


#1978218 WCSF Game 4 GDT: Sharks 1 at Red Wings 7

I guess the important thing is to not get overconfident going into game 5.

We're still down 3-1 after this game, so there's a lot of work left to be done.

Just in guys.

What's the score?


#1977678 Don't blame Howard.. blame Babcock

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 May 2010 - 04:12 PM

Osgood should have played more.

We already had a playoff spot in the bag with more than a week to go, and we knew we weren't getting home ice.

Instead of riding Howard to become a 5 seed (even though we didn't know who we were facing), Babcock should have looked at the big picture and seen that Howard would need some rest.


#1977517 Dustin Buttfukklien

I think it's funny how Shane O'Brien grabbed him and tried to get him to fight, and then Bufflin pulled away and went after one of the Sedin twinks instead.

The guy may be the biggest ***** in the NHL.

I wish the instigator rule was eliminated, just so I can see someone like him get destroyed.


#1977396 Lebda out; Lilja in

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 May 2010 - 11:12 AM

Should have been May instead of Ritola, and Lilja should have gone in for Ericsson.


#1976849 Why The Wings can win this series

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 May 2010 - 05:08 PM

I like Johnny Walker as well, but I rarely post under its influence.

How can you say we haven't been outplayed in any game this series? We got severely outplayed yesterday as soon as the 3rd period began. In all honesty, we've been outplayed every game this series.

Yeah, there have been some bad calls and all, but the Sharks have flat out been the better team. They're hungrier, they're getting better goaltending (yes the goalie is actually a part of the team) and they've scored clutch goals in the 3rd that we haven't gotten.

And it's funny how you say we haven't been outplayed, yet you mention that we lost due to Howard and mental mistakes. Doesn't that count as being outplayed? :huh:
