#2363493 Thoughts on the Blackhawks

Posted by T.Low on 02 March 2013 - 07:03 PM

This thread should be called "The Core"...they are kicking some record setting ass.  Hopefully, we'll show up and make a game out of it.  Anything less than our all, they'll mop the ice with us.


Sure would be sweet to beat 'em.

#2363483 Milbury rips Ovechkin

Posted by T.Low on 02 March 2013 - 05:25 PM

Luongo & Raymond for Ovechkin.  Put him on the Sedin line and watch history be made...for a season or two anyway.



Edit:  And in Vancouver, his diving won't stand out as much.

#2363443 Do We Really Need a New Stadium?

Posted by T.Low on 02 March 2013 - 01:03 PM

I'm a sucker for history, so I wish they'd keep it.  There's plenty of sporting venues around the world that have been around since the beginning of the last century.  


The JLA isn't even close to the age those buildings are.  


Seriously, i wish they'd have stayed at Olympia.  but I'm quirky like that.

#2361935 Ed Olczyk, professional broadcaster, professional idiot

You mean kinda like at the beginning of this?



Zackly!  It happens once every few games.  Mostly it's guys jumping up into the boards to soften the blow.

#2361882 Ed Olczyk, professional broadcaster, professional idiot

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.

Mickey was right when he siad Toots knows his job and not letting Big Rig break a hand or something and risk injury in a fight.  Imagine Ericsson out for a month after that fight.

Looking at your user name and avatar and reading your text so far, I cannot expect there is anything on your blog worth reading.  Paste a paragraph or two if you want to try to hook me.

#2354808 State of Hockey; High school drama

Posted by T.Low on 13 February 2013 - 06:18 PM

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. 

#2354250 Patrick Marleau

Posted by T.Low on 11 February 2013 - 02:18 PM

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.

#2352558 2/7 GDT : Red Wings 5 at St. Louis Blues 1

Posted by T.Low on 07 February 2013 - 09:07 PM

Can't watch the game... :(

How Tatar/Mrazek/Tootoo are doing?



Toots hasn't had much opportunity but he's finishing his checks hard and while I wouldn't say he's wreaking havoc in front of the net, atleast he's got a bit of a presence there.


Mrazek is quick as a cat.  Goes down and is up into position super quick like he's Jet Li or something.

#2352542 2/7 GDT : Red Wings 5 at St. Louis Blues 1

Posted by T.Low on 07 February 2013 - 08:49 PM

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. 


 WIngs old PP was super fast puck movement.

Can you say "2nd dairy scoring"? :clap:


Whattya know, net traffic!

#2350425 2/2 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blue Jackets 4

Posted by T.Low on 02 February 2013 - 02:03 PM

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.


Go Wings.

#2350422 Emmerton

Posted by T.Low on 02 February 2013 - 01:53 PM

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?

i second T Low's sediment. Appreciate the awesome GDT



Hey Neighbor, lets get a bunch of us Vancouver area Wings fans together and go see the Griffins when they come to Abbotsford! (But that's another thread...)
