#2505642 Around The League - Eastern Conference Playoff Race

Posted by marcaractac on 03 April 2014 - 09:24 PM

Leafs with their annual collapse, and now their annual glimmer of hope before they let their fans down yet again. Same song and dance every year lol.




#2505598 How about some love for Howard!

Posted by marcaractac on 03 April 2014 - 07:19 PM

 

Malik is crazy.  Is Howard the new Franzen?  "Yeah he did good, BUT he could be better so he still sucks."  That logic makes no sense.

 

Sure, it would be nice if Howie was a good puck-handling tender, but he's not, and to expect him to become amazing at it is an unreasonable expectation, especially while making a claim he puts no effort into it.

 

I perfectly understand the argument, but there are still plenty of Howard haters.  It's nothing new in Detroit to be rough on goalies, so I guess it is to be expected.

 

Exactly. Hell, there were Hasek haters in 2002 as well. Some people just cannot be pleased.

Not sure if trollin'.....

 

Not once did I say they should hand it to him right now. But there is no reason his name shouldn't be mentioned when it comes time to vote. Of course they are gonna give it to Crosby, as the Hart trophy is nothing more than a complementary piece to the Art Ross these days.

I know it is probably a pipe dream, but Goose should be in the talks for the Hart trophy. I know the award typically goes to the leagues highest scorer, but there is already an award for that. Has there been any other player more important to their team's success than Goose at this point? None I can think of. He is the only player in the entire league we can truly say "Without him, his team doesn't make the playoffs". If that isn't worthy of league MVP, nothing is.

Great to see Howie in game stealing form!

GO MAKE ANOTHER ONE

This is what happens when a lineup of vanilla midgets goes up against a team like Boston.

 

We're no match for them in a 7 game playoff series.  

 

I guess the Wings should just forfeit if they draw Boston first. Gotcha.




#2504851 Detroit could be dangerous come playoff time...

Posted by marcaractac on 02 April 2014 - 08:07 PM

Datsyuk wont be at 100% at anytime this season, who knows about Zetterberg. And before anyone says Datsyuk at 60% is better than not at all, as true as that is, that wont get us past Boston or Pittsburgh.

 

Marc-Andre Fleury says hello




#2504676 Hypothetical

Posted by marcaractac on 02 April 2014 - 06:18 PM

 

This so far-fetched anyway, no GM in their right mind would make a trade like that. Except maybe Gillis although I'm not sure he is in his right mind. 

 

*cough*garthsnow*cough*

Big game.  4-1 Wings.  LGW!

 

On a side note....the Islanders have a Nilsson, a Nielsen and a Nelson in their lineup tonight. lol

 

Have fun, play by play man

If games were decided by how teams look on paper, there would be no point in playing them. Anything can happen!




#2504331 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by marcaractac on 01 April 2014 - 09:54 AM

The Buffalo and Carolina games are my concern. Losing either of those could be catastrophic. You'd have to think those teams would love the chance to contribute to ending the streak. Wings gotta be on their toes and play complete games.




#2504273 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by marcaractac on 31 March 2014 - 11:24 PM

 
Well to be fair they did have future hall-of-famer Justin Pogge.  :lol:


The Raycroft and Kessel trades are exactly what that fan base deserve. Along with the Clarkson and Phaneuf contracts.
