#2444586 10/14 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2

Posted by Nev on 15 October 2013 - 12:55 AM

Does anyone have a recording of the "Are you serious?!" Because that was hilarious.




Go to the 1 minute mark.


In other news, re-watching the highlights this morning I just noticed how Franzen hustled on the 2nd goal.  As someone who rags on him as much as anyone, nice to see.  Now do it again 82 times!

#2444086 Monday 1 PM start time?

Doesn't appear to be a typo, what's the deal with a Monday matinee? Making room for Tigers and Red Sox that evening?

That's 10 AM out of here. I'll be having second breakfast and watching the game. Ha ha


Liked purely for the reference to Second Breakfast :)


I'll be having my tea for what its worth :)

I check downgoesbrown several times per week.  The suspension chart was a thing of beauty.




Dammit Pronger!

#2442781 Devils sign Brunner 2 yrs. $2.5 million AAV

WOW, that was an egregious disregard for defense. I don't think he'd have dared do that under Babcock.


Did you not see Franzen on the PK on Saturday?

#2442436 Detroit @ Boston 10/14. 1pm start time?

On a related note, I watched Hockey Night in Canada on the NHL Network last night and there was no mention - from what I watched - of any of the non-Canadian games. Not even the Wings game. Is that normal? Also, is Glenn Healy senile? I'd only seen HNiC, like, twice before.




From what I've seen of HNIC over the years, you're lucky if they mention any non-Toronto teams.

Why can't you be happy for all us Wings fans in Europe who get to watch a game at tea-time? :)

#2442383 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by Nev on 06 October 2013 - 01:57 AM

Here's an interesting take by former NHL'er Chris 'Knuckles' Nilan...




Points out how his depression didn't come from the game, or the fighting - it came  from substance abuse.



Oh, it was the drugs and the booze that made him depressed, that's OK then *facepalm*


So the next obvious question is - why was he on the drugs and the booze?  In fact why do so many enforcers have problems with drugs and alcohol?  Why is drug addiction and alcoholism so much more prevalent amongst them than regular NHL players?

#2442031 Nyquist taking things in stride, with class

Griffs win 8-1 in Rochester, Nyquist with a goal and 2 assists!  Sproul 2 goals, Almquist 3 assists.

Wow, sounded like the Wings were at home for the winner :)

#2442026 Devils sign Brunner 2 yrs. $2.5 million AAV

Posted by Nev on 05 October 2013 - 02:37 AM


They were both lucky rebounds that came directly to him.


Like Zetterberg and Weiss then?


Seriously guys, so he didn't sign for us?  Just let it go.

Ask Mrs Roy what happens when you cross Patty....



#2441241 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

I'm puzzled by people mentioning the Draper/Lemiuex and Lidstrom/Laperrierre hits.  On both occasions we had fighters on the team., on both occasions they did nothing to prevent the hit occuring.  No point circle jerking over Downey dropping the gloves when Lidstrom is already out injured.  Clearly Downey failed as an enforcer.


Lemiuex was a dirty SOB his entire career and enforcers did nothing to stop his cheap-shotting.

#2440558 Parros Concussed

Posted by Nev on 02 October 2013 - 02:13 PM

Its been speculated for at least as long as I've been following hockey (20 years for the record) that one day someone will be killed in a fight when they hit their head on the ice, and that will be the trigger for banning fighting.


Its why I hate "takedowns", far more dangerous than punching someones helmet, and one day someone will suffer brain damage or worse from it as they get pile driven head first into the ice.

#2440217 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

Posted by Nev on 01 October 2013 - 03:33 PM

Heard the same thing when Flieschman and Matthias left, heard it countless times.


This same argument is had every year when a promising youngster sits the pine to a vet. In fact it happened last summer with these same names.


The difference is that at this point Tatar and Nyquist are our best forward prospects since probably Hudler and Filpulla in the mid-2000's, and in the long run one or both of them may turn out to be better.  Huds and Flip were also battling to get a spot on a far superior roster than we have now.


I don't actually have much against Bert, Cleary, Miller, Eaves, Tootoo, even Sammy.  I do have a problem with all of them together, plus Emmerton as well who is clearly not an NHL player.  One of Miller or Eaves.  One of Bert or Cleary.  Emmerton in the AHL where he belongs.  We've got a collection of bit-part players - every squad has to have them to fill out their roster in the cap world.  Problem is, they're not filling out the roster, they're half the roster, and they're keeping better players out.


Bert-Andersson-Cleary may not be the worst line in the NHL but it sure as hell is the slowest.  I fear for Andersson without the dynamism of Nyquist and Brunnner Tatar on his wings.

#2438688 Detroit would like to welcome the Eastern Conference

Cool counts for something, that means Toronto is out. Still, if Hockeytown was created to upset them, let's do it again. I love the Murphy eating a hot dog maybe as a faceoff circle



If upsetting the Leafs is the goal, how about a picture of Murphy holding the 1997 Stanley Cup aloft?
