My quick contribution.


#2274759 Wings ranked No.14 in NHL Power Rankings..

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 28 March 2012 - 08:43 AM

So.. I don't normally even look at NHL.com articles because they are generally crap anyways.. but this one was brought to my attention since the free press mentioned it..

Heres the free press article which links to the NHL article - http://www.freep.com...4/1053/sports05

Now.. I am not gonna be biased and say the Wings should be number 1 with how they had slumped recently, but to not even put them in the top 10 teams? That seems straight up ridiculous to me..

Despite the recent struggles the Wings are still (likely) going to have yet another 100 point season.. how does a 100 point team rank 14th out of 16 playoff teams?

Thoughts?


#2272102 Box score nugget of the night

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 20 March 2012 - 08:26 AM

Torts had a few choice words for the Devils' coaching staff because of that starting line-up.


Which is pretty BS because if he doesn't reply with the line that he used (includig a defenseman at center) then none of it happens.. There is no way anyone can believe that if the Rangers started Gaborik and Richards against that Devils line that they were just going to get mugged, in fact it probably would have been smart to start their first line against that Devils line for a scoring chance...

I don't have any problem with the fights but if you're going to be a willing combatant you can't turn around after the game and blame the other coach.


#2272100 Did Holland build a BMW instead of a Chevy?

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 20 March 2012 - 08:19 AM

See, it's not about which car breaks down and how many parts it takes for the car to break down, it's about who's willing to get out and push when it breaks down and right now there aren't very many "parts" to this team that are willing to get out and push until we can get all of our parts back in place.


#2272059 reunite the HZD line?

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 19 March 2012 - 11:49 PM

I hate to say it but I agree with the Homer summary that's being given. I think at this point it's hard to send Nyquist back down, he looked good with Dats and I think given a couple more games with Dats he could really break out heading into the playoffs. When Franzen comes back I think Homer needs to sit so Nyquist can stay in and then (hopefully) the Wings are left with 2 legit scoring lines again.


#2257056 22 is the actual record

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 15 February 2012 - 08:36 AM

Last time I checked a road game was a road game, no matter the circumstances, if the league recorded it as a road game (which I assume they must have) then I'm not sure how you could even argue otherwise.


#2255440 Caps Have Party Problems

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 12 February 2012 - 01:57 PM

Kind of weird, I don't really mention it because I don't put too much stock into these kinds of stories but a buddy of mine use to play Junior with Jason Spezza's brother and he mentioned that Spezza has a bit of a coke habit and that he also tends to spend some big bucks on wild parties involving large amounts of cocaine.. So if by some crazy random happenstance both stories are true it would seem like Cocaine is the drug of choice for NHL Player parties..


#2253108 Trade Deadline Approaches

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 06 February 2012 - 07:18 PM

I was just watching That's Hockey on TSN before the Wings game and they mentioned that Visnovsky might be available out of Anaheim.. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before but it seems like most of the Ducks talk has been around Getz/Perry/Ryan..

I think if the Wings know Stuart wants to be in Cali then it could be a decent move if they could pick up Visnovsky.. I THINK his cap hit is 5.2 or something, which isn't terrible and I believe he still has another year left on his contract, if he could play like he did last year then it could at least soften the blow of having Lidstrom retire.


#2250475 Bettman: 2013 ASG in Columbus

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 28 January 2012 - 04:42 PM

Gotta make up for lost revenue somehow. Wouldn't be surprised if its in Phoenix in 2014.


And then Atlanta 2015!.. Oh.. wait.. :ph34r:


#2238315 Stay classy Kesler

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 22 December 2011 - 12:51 PM

Okay Kesler, fair enough maybe he should expect to have to drop the gloves if he hits people like that, but if you continue to skate around with your head down maybe you should expect to be hit like that and not be such a ***** about it when you do.


#2235827 Can Conner reasonably be sent down?

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 14 December 2011 - 12:14 AM

Having both Conner and Helm on the same line is almost unfair to other teams. The game against Pittsburgh was pretty even except when that line was on the ice and they just seemed to dominate on the forecheck. Conner seems to be a slightly less physical version of Helm with a touch more playmaking ability.. If he can keep up this pace there is no way he gets sent down. :thumbup:


#2228580 Eaves = Doghouse?

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 21 November 2011 - 09:19 PM

Eaves is a cancer? Come on man...


I'm pretty sure that statement was saying that he ISN'T a cancer.. :unsure:

It makes me wonder, what the hell could have been said/done to make grown men flip out like this?


World's Meanest "Yo Momma" Joke.
