#2417216 Who Do You Want to Win the Cup?

Pens cause of iginla 

When Iginla stopped a pending trade with Boston and Calgary got dirt for him in a trade, Iginla can choke on a turd.  

 

Go Bruins!  

 

I've been wearing my Lucic shirt about the city snarling at Penguins fans.

maybe trade quincey for picks and pick up leopold, murray, or streit 

 

cant beat those 4 lines. id love to get rid of gustavsson too and bring up mrazek

I didn't even read this before I posted mine, but we signed the same 2 guys and we both let Flip walk.  I would keep Q though and let him go after next season, same goes for Gustavsson.  Then I'd take another look at Mrazek to see if he's a capable back up for Howard and I'd fast track Sproul and maybe get Backman up with him in 2014 depending on how our D is performing.  Ouellet will likely be more on the fast track as well.

Can we say that Flip is done as a Red Wings

Hopefully yes.

If only Cleary had the skill to match his heart, cause at least he'sf****** got one.  He's been our best player tonight, and I don't like the guy so that's as unbiased as it gets.

Ha ha ha.

I was waiting for you to laugh at that.  Kronwall makes a "rookie" line change in game 7 and has been no better than Smith in the playoffs, but no one has been ragging on him at all.  He's a vet with an A on his chest.  He should lead the charge on the blue line.  If he's leading by example, Smith has been following 100%, but getting more points.




#2414266 Good Luck Wings.

I think the success of that line has a lot to do with the 3rd-tier match-up. I agree with the whole "if you're going to do the work, you're going to get the ice-time" sentiment, but as good as that 3rd grouping is, Brunner is still a defensive liability and if they weren't going to worry at all about matching up and Chicago got a consistent diet of Toews-Hossa-Sharp against say the Smith pairing with Brunner trying to watch Keith or Hjarm creeping in the slot, things might get hairy very fast.

 

Of course, none of this matters. Babcock is smarter than all of us. He'll do what he is going to do and I trust him implicitly. 

 Babcock is just gonna make weird angry faces at Quenville all game and throw him off.  He'll be so lost Jamal Mayers will be on with CamelToews and Bickell.




#2414249 Proud of our boys

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 29 May 2013 - 07:45 AM

I love me some Wings and I am quite proud of them this year.  Especially for not castrating the officials in game 6, which they had all the reason in the world to do.  I love how they're always calm, cool and collected.  It makes it a little easier for my blood pressure to go down when crap like game 6 happens.  Let's hope we see an all ings WCF!




#2414143 Late 2nd PP in Game 6 is microcosm of biggest need.

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 May 2013 - 08:50 PM

What team couldn't use another goal scorer? They don't exactly grow on trees. Who is available who fits this bill?

Well, to answer that question, look no further than my avatar.




#2414069 Fraser's take on Penalty Shot

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 May 2013 - 03:05 PM

Pav's "trip" on Toews?

 

Abby thrown face first into the boards by Seabrook in the 1st while on a PP?

 

Kindl called for interference and then later in the first a Wing was interfered with even more so with no call?

 

Consistency is all we ask for.

And where was Brunner's penalty shot this series when he got the corkscrew in the hands on a breakaway, or when Roszival two-handed Abdelkader's stick out of his hands on a breakaway that was pointed out in a .gif in the last GDT?  Therefore, Mr. Fraser, the call was flat outf****** wrong and by this series' standards isn't even a penalty. 




#2414009 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 May 2013 - 12:24 PM

I totally agree that less experienced players like Smith are going to struggle and make a ton of mistakes. I think what people are upset about, well me anyway, is that if Ian White were playing instead of Smith we would have won the series with Chicago by now.

 

Ian White is a  far bigger defensive liability than Smith.  Sure Smith was 90% responsible for 2 of the goals against last night, but White would have done the same, and that's why he's not in the line-up.  At least Smith can make a breakout pass without icing the puck or turning it over, White cannot.

The officiating has been terrible all series

True, and the officiating in the NHL is a joke on the whole, but in game 6 there was a difference.  The refs chose a side.  Playing favorites didn't happen noticably until game 6, and it was a disgusting display. 




#2413931 Good Luck Wings.

Games 1-5 the team that worked harder won.  Game 6 is why to so many the NHL is not taken seriously in the realm of major sports.  The Hawks are a great team, and I've always been a fan of theirs, but the fact that they needed the refs to help them win that game is complete garbage.  If the refs will in fact "let them play" in game 7, keep it fair and make calls both ways.  The penalty shot call was garbage in a series perspective, cause if that's a penalty shot, then Abdelkader and Brunner should each have a penalty shot this series.  All we ask for is across the board consistency, and game 6 broke that.

It gives one of the best coaches in the game some time to work his magic.

Doesn't matter how much magic Babcock has if his players aren't willing to put forth the effort needed.  Hold the 1 goal lead.  You have a top 5 goalie behind you for f***'s sake.  Give the guy a hand.
