Ryan Johansen is af****** beast.  I want, I want.




#2509950 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

Posted by kipwinger on Yesterday, 04:43 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, you heard it here first, two bold predictions for this series.  The Datsyuk and Bergeron lines cancel one another out thus freeing up the eventual reconstituted Legwand, Franzen, and Nyquist line and the Goose gets loose.  SECONDLY, and this is the big one...after taking some time to identify the mismatch and grow comfortable with it, Uncle Mike matches up the kid line against the Krejci, Iginla, Lucic line and the latter never get to another loose puck for the remainder of the series.  Speed kills.

 

Bonus Prediction:  Wings in five.  f*** you Boston.




#2509819 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by kipwinger on 15 April 2014 - 01:12 PM

 

I agree that he has been fantastic. But the D would be a lot worst without Kronwall as far as this season goes. 

 

Agreed.  I just wanted to pick "other" to be different.  I'm like the goth kid of hockey forums.  You don't understand me and you never will mom!

Eddie O is such a POS. Watching the Pens/Flyers game, and he word for word just said, while talking about the Red Wings: "Welcome to the Eastern Conference. Having to play Boston in the first round" literally laughing as he said it. Absolute joke this guy gets to do color for national broadcast games.

Where's Edzo today?Welcome to the Western conference without Detroit.Having to play St.Louis in the first round... :lol:

#2508976 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Don't forget about worthless Quincey...


I think Quincey's been pretty good lately. Not great or stellar, but solid. Aside from some of the penalties he takes I don't think he's the detriment people make him out to be. Do I wish he contributed more offensively? Sure, but he's not at the top of my list of defensive worries. Kindl on the other hand is infuriating.

Since Philly won today, if Columbus wins, Detroit is locked into the #2 WC.

 

If Columbus loses in regulation, Detroit will require at least 1 point tomorrow for the #1 WC spot.

 

If Columbus loses in OT or SO, Detroit will require 2 points tomorrow for the #1 WC spot.

All the sweeter when we beat the Bruins. And it just makes him look stupid anyway considering how terrible the east is relative to the west, which we dominated for so long. Though I'm sure by now he's used to looking stupid for the things he says.

#2508959 Babcock and Holland Talk About Stuff

Good to hear Mantha's on the fast track to the NHL according to Holland.


#2508987 Ryan Malone arrested

Or they could just trade him to the Oilers.

:lol:

 

Hockey players are human just like everyone else, mistakes are made, but there's no need to obliterate their life, career, and reputation because of one error. I've felt firmly about this in sports for a long time, the media likes to crucify athletes for something as small as how they word something and it's taken out of context. I understand this is more serious, but the media tends to make things sound wayyy worse than they really are most of the time. 

 

Sheahan was pulled over for drunk driving also, he was 4 times over the legal limit and wearing a Tinky Winky costume. Should he be banished and condemned for life? No, he was young, stupid, and learned from his error as it's not happened again and he's now developing himself as a respectable member of this team.

He has been steadily improving each game. I figure come game 1 of the playoffs we will get the leaving it all on the ice pav.

 

Exactly and with 6 min left in the Pens game, Pav finally started to look like himself.

I agree with Babcock. This team has had issues with consistency all year long. Confidence is relatively high right now as the boys made it in, so keep it rolling. You can't iron out the kinks in the last 2 games ready for the playoffs with half the top guys out.

Posted by Playmaker on 10 April 2014 - 09:02 PM

They'll have 4-5 days off before the playoffs start.  Jimmy carried a huge workload into the playoffs last year and it didn't see to hurt him any.  Nobody has really logged a ridiculous amount of ice time.   Just leave well enough alone.




#2508529 Puck Daddy: Trotz is probably out in Nashville

Posted by TheXym on 10 April 2014 - 08:18 PM

Trotz is a good coach, imho, and will have no problems finding a new job.

Personally, I have no problems with the Preds threads, as the posters who start them have generally been good contributing posters rather than trolls like certain individuals who are fans of other franchises. I appreciate the info and their perspective.
