I think you guys saw the wrong replay.. the no-goal wasn't because Bertuzzi used his glove.. they clearly called Holmstrom for being too close to the crease. :ph34r:

#2128979 Owners back Gary Bettman with 5-year contract extension

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 11 March 2011 - 05:25 PM

I can't say that I am surprised. Despite the fact that so many people can't stand the guy whenever you hear owners and gms (for the most part) talk about him they always seem to approve.. whats 5 more years anyways? :hehe:

#2128389 NHL could lose Air Canada sponsorship over headshots

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 10 March 2011 - 11:23 AM

Headliner on TSN's NHL page is about this and trying to get a police investigation amongst other things.. which I find just stupid. Some people may not agree with Mike Murphy or Colin Campbell, but like it or not these guys make their living making these kinds of decisions. Anyone at all who is watching that hit from a non-habs fan perspective is going to be able to see why there wasnt a suspension, even if it was borederline. In fact, last night I showed my brother (who rarely watches any hockey at all) the hit and told him Chara wouldn't be suspended and his response was "of course not, its not Chara's fault that the rink is designed that way." The thought of Air Canada pulling out makes me think they are run but a bunch of pissed off Habs fans or they were looking for an excuse to pull out anyways.

Didn't see most of the game. Did Franzen float around as per usual?

I'll have to check the gamesheet, I'm unaware that he even dressed tonight.

#2127697 Chara's hit on Pacioretty

im more curious on how many games Howard He Do It? will be suspended.

No more than 2 because LGW refuses to set an example.

#2127662 Chara's hit on Pacioretty

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 09 March 2011 - 02:29 PM

ya know... why would that even get posted in a injury thread.... let him say what he wants about my re-post...... his name is still ALL OVER IT!!!

I am by no means a perfect person...But outside of that re-post show where I have posted something like that?!?!?!?
Forum = Opinions

that is gross.......and you know it! that was so close to the end of a mans life... and for you to defend his posting of it .... well "Birds of a feather........"

You are acting like he was the one who took the time to carefully hand paint the entire figure and sleeps with it on his night stand.. all he did was post a picture he found of it online, during a conversation in which the incident had already been brought up.

#2127646 Chara's hit on Pacioretty

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 09 March 2011 - 02:16 PM

Quotes from Chris Neil on Chara, courtesy of Bruce Garrioch's Twitter.

"He's pretty honest and pretty physical. That's what makes him the defenceman he is."

"He's not going to try to intentionally hurt someone," said Neil. "If Z's intentionally going after a guy he's going to fight him."

Gotta agree somewhat with this.. if Chara has that big of a problem with Pacioretty it's not like Chara needs to cheap shot him to get his point across.. Chara can more than handle himself in a fight with anyone in the league.. But the other story would have to be if Pacioretty would actually ever even try to drop the gloves with Chara.

Ducks injury list updated. Perry questionable for tonight's game after leaving practice yesterday.

Pfft. Injured? More like he doesn't wanna get embarassed again and end up with another ass whoopin at the hands of the little old pansy Red Wings. :hehe:

#2122972 Teams' third jerseys

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 27 February 2011 - 03:05 AM

Sorry, you guys will definitely think this is a stupid question.. but what exactly is a third jersey?

A third jersey is basically an alternate jersey that some teams will use. Every team has a home and away jersey that they use ona regular basis, but basically in an attempt to make a few extra dollars a lot of teams have a 3rd or alternate jersey that they wear every few game, generally just features different colors and/or a different logo than the team usually wears.

#2121926 2/24 GDT: Stars 4 at Red Wings 1

0 goals in his last 11, 5 goals in his last 12 :yowza:

The Mule is on fire! 5 goals in 12 games! Unstoppable!

More seriously though.. I don't mind the Wings losing.. happens to the best teams.. no one goes 82-0.. I just get frustrated beyond belief with how they constantly look like they are totally fine with losing.

I mentioned earlier that the Wings brass has a "win with the team you've got" mentality heading into the trade deadline.. which is fine by me. That's why they get paid the big bucks and I'm sitting in my s***ty apartment. But I kind of think it's a bad idea making it so public.. I mean on one hand players could see it as a vote of confidence.. or on the other hand they see it as a free pass to take a game off once in a while.. I would like to see Holland come out and tell the world he was looking to improve.. just to see how well this team could play when everyone is playing to keep their spot on a cup contender.

Modano wasn't doing THAT good when he went down.. but I think the best part about him coming back and the team having a healthy set of forwards again will cause a spark simply because when that happens, if you don't come to play there is a good chance that next game someone else is going to be taking your spot.

A Big E fight is a win/win. We actually get to see a Red Wing fight AND Big E off the ice for at least 5 minutes. haha.

#2120729 2/22 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 22 February 2011 - 09:50 PM

Hmm.. I'm confused.. Is this game a fluke playing terrible defense or were the last couple games a fluke playing good defense?

#2120673 2/22 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 3

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 22 February 2011 - 09:23 PM

The one thing I don't get in games like this is all the pretty plays and cute s*** by the Wings.. I mean they are one of the few teams that has the skills to make those plays and finish them off.. but save it for a game you are dominating.. look at how both of Cleary's goals were scored.. drive the net. Seems like it should be simple logic to me.

#2115844 2/13 GDT: Bruins 2 at Red Wings 4

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 13 February 2011 - 01:32 PM

Im not sure how reducing the roster size to 17 is supposed to help. Seems to me they reduced the Islanders roster size to about 7 by the end of that game and there was still fighting.

#2113460 2/9 GDT: Predators 4 at Red Wings 1

Okay, now let's see Rinne put up the "game of his life" with Homer's big ass in his face.
