#2403042 WCQF Game 7 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Ducks 2 - (DET wins series, 4-3)

after seeing the replay of that penalty that was pathetic, complete and utter embelishment.

In my opinion, that's a goal Howard has to stop. Cleary took the ice away, so the shot was going up somewhere.  Howard was out of position, and Fil blew the defensive coverage.  Frustrating.

All of you guys should join the chat during the game if you plan to be around the forum.  It's nice chatting during the game!

If this game goes into OT I'll throw up.



I'm gonna just try to sit back and enjoy the game tonight, and not get too wrapped up either way.  That's hard though. 

 

I had no expectations this year, just hoped they made the playoffs.  So if we win, that's fantastic, if we lose, well, the young'ns got valuable experience and my expectations will go up for next year.

But oh boy would that be wonderful to take on Chicago!

We are very lucky we aren't facing a 3-0 deficit right now . A goal post and a perry gaffe and it is 3-0.  How many of those close calls have the wings had?  ZERO.  In fact, nothing even REMOTELY close to that.

I don't get how Redmond is saying Hiller is starting to be the story of this series.  It isn't like wave after wave of high powered red wing offense is coming at him.  In fact, there hasn't been one crazy acrobatic save in 2 games yet.  Unbelievable.  This means the wings are not getting clean opportunities whatsoever.  This is a testament to our s***ty play, and the ducks' great defense.  They are really taking any time and space away from Detroit, all over the ice.

If that keeps up, we're not going to score another goal in this series.

We really haven 't even been close to scoring yet tonight, it's pathetic.

No 5 minute boarding major and game misconduct?  Must be because the player got up...

 

The NHL sucks.

Anyone watching the end of the ottawa/montreal game?  Did you see the mon player slap shot the puck right at an ottawa player/bench?  It hit an ottawa player also...but since nobody was injured, that won't be reviewed.  That could have been very serious.  What if he hit somebody in the head?  He obviously had intent to hurt somebody there.

But oh, nobody hit the ice, no calls, no nothing. 

That kind of thing will get someone hurt/killed.




#2397096 Ottawa - Montreal 5 on 5 fight

Posted by Firehawk on 05 May 2013 - 09:03 PM

Now, that montreal player just obviously tried to fire the puck as hard as he could at an Ottawa player.  How isn't that a suspendable offense?  Becuase nobody got injured?  Because it didnt' catch somebody in the head? 

Sorry, still ranting lol.

 

But seriously, now that should be looked at and some kind of punishment given.  He obviously turned toward an ottawa player and slap shot the puck right at someone. 

 

Anyone else see that?




#2397055 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by Firehawk on 05 May 2013 - 08:26 PM

I don't like at all that the fact that there was an injury is one of the key points that was used to determine the punishment.  That's why people get so frustrated.  Who cares if the player got seriously injured or jumped right back up?  That should be irrelevant.  Players are getting whacked int he head all game long, it's just a matter of whether or not the player getting hit stays down or gets injured.

 

Homer got his ass beat every game but because he was in front of the net, that was an acceptable location to take a beating. 

Just maddening .

I guess Kronwall should be suspended infinite games with all the similar hits he's put on players, just like that.

No dis, just a question...

 

Is there a smart phone app or some program that formats certain replies like this?  I see people post like this now and then is various forums, and am never quite sure.  It is a very bizarre and unnatural style to capitalize the first letter of every word like that.

 

 

 

Yeah and it's frickin annoying.  I wasn't doing it deliberately believe me lol.

 

I just switched to the laptop.  Tried to reply to someone else's and it just deletes the word I just typed every time, so I switched to the laptop lol.

 

Anyways, I said earlier I didn't think the wings were playing all that well.  They were playing alright, holding in there defensively, but offensively what is with this playing way out on the perimeter?  We've seen them start doing that in the playoffs for several years now.  It's like how far can I get away form the goal with the puck?  My God.  Offensively they seemed very slow with decision making, and then nobody really wanted to shoot the puck.  And when somebody finally shot the puck, it was right at Hiller and there were no rebounds.  Unacceptable.  Where was the hunger from game 2? 

I don't know what it is exactly, if I'm just getting older, or if I'm just so sick of being so frustrated with the NHL over the last few years but I'm really starting to care less and less.  And that sucks becuase I love the game of hockey and I love this team.

 

But the NHL continues to be stupid.  I have been a fan for 25 years and I just don't understand what is going on sometimes.  I didn't even know that if no ref called a penalty, they could still call a penalty well after the play is over, and after the refs convene to discuss it.  That is something else to me.  I don't ever recall seeing that.  Redmond I thought was going to have an aneurysm and he was probably right to.

 

I just don't get it, but I am starting to get less and less animated the older I get, or the more years that go by, becuase I'm learning that the NHL is managed by politicians who think they can make things better, and all they do is continue to screw it up.  It's happening in the NFL as well now.  It's all about money, and it's really nothing to do with fans.  It's pretty obvious it's not about the fans when last year I think it was philly and pitt that had the big brawls for 2 games then in game 3 if they looked at each other funny, the refs were calling penalties.  I don't know what fan wasn't on the edge of his seat loving every second of those brawls.  That's part of the game.  WTF is the league brass doing?    People want hits, they want goals, they want fights, and so far we have none of the above.

Thanks NHL.

So.. a scrumb in the net...  franzen and cleary get roughed up... talk s*** afterwards for a fight... and franzen gets the penalty, even though cleary was crosschecked 3 or 4 times...  but beacuse they challenged for a fight apparently, they go to the box??? 

 

Unbelievable.

Same nuttieness of why you can't cross check anywhere on the ice but inf ront of the net you can break your stick over a guy and it's fine.  I will never get that one.
