#2643082 12/14 GDT : Buffalo Sabres at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 December 2015 - 10:20 PM

Here comes some of the posters we haven't seen for a while. 

 

We didn't play a great game, but we had enough to win. Just too many missed opportunities. Pav's post, Helm's shorty, Jurco's reluctant penalty shot, Nyquist at the buzzer.

 

Well, I'll clear the way now for the "we're average" and "Kenny needs to make a move" talk.

 

Fixed.  Now who's overreacting?

The streak is a mirage.  Maybe we can start winning games in regulation now and protecting leads.

It would be awesome to have a good shot blocker in these late situations.

Knew that was going to happen.

 

Is Ben Wallace still in Detroit?

I can see F.Michael sitting on his couch tonight drinking Lagavulin 16 and watching this Bruins/Canadiens game.     :lol:

 


 

 

With the moves Boston has made, and with some injuries there's been a handful of new faces in the line up - in particular 4th line LW Tyler Randell seems willing, and able.

 

 

 

Even though he's not dead, Bobby Nystrom must be rolling over in his grave at his son's fighting ability.

Give him a break. Doc hasn't been around for a bit.  He's gotta get re-acclimated with current protocols.  :D

 

Traitor probably went to hfboards instead.

I try to, after suffering for the first eight years in NYC without cable and just trying to stream games,  the past three years I had CenterIce plus MSG showed Islanders/Rangers/Devils games, but I just moved back to the Detroit area and am so busy with getting the new house ready, I'm barely catching all of the Wings games.  Which sucks in and of itself, but I do like watching other teams and the league in general.

For perspective if nothing else. I'm of the mindset, you don't really know how "your" team stacks up unless you know how other teams look.

 

I only see opposing players when the play the Wings.  I've probably seen Crosby play only a handful of games in the last few years.  

 

I should qualify, though, that my greatest period of watching hockey was between 2000-2004, which is an era a lot of people find boring.  Compared to the era before, it really was, but the lockout kind of hurt things for me.  So I actually prefer the 2000-2004 years to today or anything post lockout.  


I agree - although I don't watch network tv (haven't since Seinfeld, or NYPD Blue) - I will watch games of some teams that have that 'element' such as Boston, and truth be told - I've developed a soft spot for the Bruins over the last 6, or 7 years.

 

Tonight's game against the Habs should be entertaining.

 

I don't think Boston is that tough anymore.  A few years ago, when they had Thornton and Lucic they were more interesting.

People still watch non-Wings games?  

 

I've said this before, but I don't follow the league anywhere as much as I once did.  The goalies with their big pads and the lack of fighting and bad blood between rivals has made the game boring.  I'll still watch Wings games but not the rest of the league.

Should have switched goalies when it went to shootout.  I forgot how many points this idiot cost us last season.  




#2641586 What are the chances Larkin wins the Calder ?

He won't win it.  They'll give it to Barrett Jackman again.   ;)




#2641515 Devils Sign Tootoo

Maltby was also a 50 goal scorer in Junior. Ericsson isn't known as a great fighter in the NHL. Tootoo can hold his own, wasn't given a fair shot in Detroit, and would be welcomed depth to a roster lacking some physicality. Also, you think knowing someone will come after you doesn't deter players from taking cheap shots? Yeah, it still happens, of course. But having a guy who can stand with just about anyone in the league makes you think twice.

 

Babcock gave Tootoo the kind of burial Vince McMahon would be jealous of.  




#2641449 Hey!

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 December 2015 - 10:44 PM

Maybe the most exciting game of the season.  Apparently, nobody watched it.  This might be the shortest GDT ever.

This was last night.  Thanks Babcock.   :glare:

Oh great.  Now our goalies are going to get lit up like a Christmas tree.     :siren:

Oh Franzen, why did you have to be such a pansy and not throw that punch?   :glare:

Blowing leads like its 2009. The dropping of points to trash teams will come back to bite them. (Carolina anyone?). Last time I take a dump when the game is on, it made the team take a dump.

Cue the Lost Boys. I still believe they'll pull this out. Let's Go Wings.

 

I wish it was still 2009.  Then we'd have a good team.
