#2486911 2/26 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Canadiens 1 (OT)

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 26 February 2014 - 04:23 PM

It should be:

Gus- Pav- Bert

Franzen- Sheahan- Tatar

Alfie- Helm- Abby

Eaves- Glendening- Miller


With Franzen coming back I think Jurco and Andersson should be scratched not Eaves and Glendening.

I agree with Glendening being in the lineup, but I'd keeo Jurco in cause he's creating offence and that line has crazy chemistry. Tuzzi should be out and Glendening in centering the 4th line.


#2486843 Call ups.. Sheahan, Emmerton, Pulkkinen and Almquist

I'd guess it's to replace Kindl.

I wish it was permanent.  I hope he scores on his 1st shot with a heavy one-timer.

I almost just laughed myself off the couch.  Holy s*** dude....epic Jokinen.


Oh, and I believe the real Olli is right smack dab in the middle sporting the Ryan Getzlaf hair cut.

What a pathetic showing by team Sweden. They were never in it.

3 goals against in 6 games... who really was in it, even with our lame offence?


 

Exactly. Claritin banned? wtf lol

I take Sudafed and Actifed and drink 3 fruit smoothies a day and then chase it with cough syrup and soup.  Half of what I do would make me a IIHF doper.  :lol:

I wish this game was 1-0 again. It was a controvercial move cause Kunitz is a coat tail rider

I'm just tired of hearing about conspiracy theories and entitled Canadians.




#2486260 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 22 February 2014 - 06:17 PM

trade Q to Edmonton for Ryan Smythe...

I'd rather put Q on forward than trade for that over the hill POS Ryan Smyth.  Like stated numerous times, Ryan Smyth = Danny Cleary.

#2486072 USA-Canada Thread

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 21 February 2014 - 10:19 PM

Nothing if you're a Canadian hockey fan, but the game isn't going to attract much ratings wise, which is what NBC and the NHL was hoping for.  Had USA/Russia been in the gold medal game, it might have been a different story.  But in general, outside of hockey cities like Detroit, Boston, etc, nobody really cares.  

If that's the case then, why would it matter?  If most of the USA doesn't care, but literally ALL of Canada would watch it, then TV in general will still get ratings, not just NBC and why would the NHL just want to have USA in there?  More than half of the NHL is Canadian players.   Not trying to rag on you, but I'm not seeing why it matters what 1 station would hope for and how you would know that the NHL would prefer that?  It may not be your intent, but it makes it sound like the only thing you think matters is USA.   Your team has come up through the ranks and solidified itself in a top 5 in the world, your hockey systems are great, but 1 Olympic game is gonna make or break that?  I don't buy it.  Gary Bettman has tried to shove hockey down Americans throats for years in non-traditional hockey markets and it doesn't work, so Olympics or not, they probably wouldn't tune in cause they likely don't know it's even on, and like you stated, don't care.
