God I really miss when ESPN had the NHL broadcasting rights.
I HATE Mike "DRIVE" Emrick and Ed Olczyk with a passion. I want Gary Thorne and Bill Clemente back. :cry:
This is the only thing I've ever seen you post that I disagree with. I like "...a DRIVE...". Like the enthusiasm, especially after having to listen to Major Homers Greg Husum and John Shorty Shorthouse all the time.
I wish I could hit "ignore" on my Yamaha sound system for Olczk, though.
I can't stand attitudes like this. All of this is easy to say from behind a keyboard. And maybe they did, we don't know. It's just fun to judge so we're judging. Like I said it's probably just him being a stupid kid but we don't know. I just know that it's not always cut and dried and sometimes roles can reverse and actions can become justified with a little more info.
Wrong. There is absolutely no place in hockey for a move like that. No place in team sport of any kind. No justification whatsoever. Nobody needs to know the story, because none of them end like that except the "He's af****** idiot" story.
If you don't agree with what is going on, or if you feel you have been wronged, let them know why you will not be suiting up.
Maybe Z hasn't gotten a goal in 5 games, but he still has 6 assists in those 5 games, nothing wrong with that. As for Marleau and Thornton, as you pointed out haven't even gotten a single point in their last 5 games, so I will still take Z over either of those goons
I agree. While I do have a certain amount of respect for Thornton and Marleau's repsective games, a scoreless Zetterberg game usually has more impact than a scoreless Marleau or Thornton game.
I seriously don't understand how a team can look better at even strength as opposed to on a power play.
I honestly think they relax and slow down too much on the PP. They try to be too patient, too cerebral. They end up "waiting" for a good shot instead of moviing the puck and moving without the puck to "create" a good shot and open rebounders.
Buddy I'm down! Especially for one of those $1 or is (2)? Hotdog and Beer nights they always advertise. Im in coquitlam though so its a bit of a hike
I'm ok with that! (Your hike that is ) Yeah, I could probably get there faster, including my border crossing. We could do the whole night for less than parking at a Canucks game, and IMO, more enjoyable.
I must be the only one who liked what I saw from Chris Conner when he was here. He had more jump, had better speed, through more hits, and was more effective on the ice than Emmerton, Mursak, and any of the other guys rotated up for a few games. The guy was flying. As much as I like Clears, Conner was more effective.
If Abby isn't going to score once in a while on Helm's wing, then I think a fourth line of Conner-Abby-Toots could be really effective.
Other than him getting injured, what am I missing?
Thanks for doing the GDT for us. You do excellent work. It's a hoot to be able to come here and get that pertinent info for each game, especially in such asthetic fashion. It truely is part of my great game day experience.
As Lids was a worhy successor to Yzerman for the Captaincy, and Z after him, you, sir, have done Aflac proud.
GO Wings! Keep the momentum rollin.
Just got my tickets for the game- it will be a sell-out or close to it. Unfortunately, I will be sitting where CBJ attacks twice. Good to see the Wings in person again after I missed out on the first game in Columbus.
