#2502490 3/27 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs. Red Wings 4

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 27 March 2014 - 09:46 PM

You've got to look at the team effort in this game as to why we lost, not howard. Yes that first shot should have been under all circumstances been stopped. No excuses. But the rest you can forget about. The perfectly executed 3 on 2 after Kronwall turned it over, the two tips he had no chance on, and Desharnais goal was a washout. You could have put a beach ball on net and it would have gone in because of how badly Howard was screened on the play. Only #21, #15 and #26 showed up tonight it felt like. You can't win with one line. 


Hopefully Franzen gets going after his goal, but that remains to be seen. 


We need a little help, but the teams around us aren't exactly taking it easy this weekend. Columbus has Pittsburgh tomorrow night, Washington have Boston, and the leafs have Philly and then us saturday. If a few things go right and we take care of TO then it'll be a bit more positive. #13 back would be a huge boost right now.

#2500454 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 24 March 2014 - 03:17 PM

Backes has always been among my favorites in the NHL, he defines what a well rounded hockey player should be. He's the captain of one of the most offensively explosive teams, doesn't get pushed around, doesn't let his team mates get pushed around. He skates well, plays a sound two way game, he hits hard, he has a good attitude and is consistent. What isn't to like? 


He currently has 50 points in 66 games with 5 game winning goals, is a plus 11 and has nearly 250 hits. 


I would overpay to have him play for Detroit just because of what he brings to the table. A hockey player that can be used in any situation on the ice is hard to find.

god damn how bad does that knee fluid drain **** hurt? Sounds just horrible lol. The things Cleary put his body through for this team. just remember that (not saying I want him back this year lol)


The fluid drain hurts but it’s not unbearable.


Respect the Cleary past. Hardcore. Put him in a suit and make him an assistant to Draper or Fischer next year.


I’d kiss the guy if I ever saw him, but only after he retires. Anything short of that gets a punch.

what do you mean teams will actually do that? do you expect teams to put stars on ltir before the trade deadline to pick up other stars? they need to be legitimately injured to go on ltir, plus no gm in their right mind will take their stars out of the lineup right in the middle of the playoff push, that is foolish. There is no cap in the playoffs


Edit: also no more 23 man roster limit in the playoffs


Okay was confused maybe this was Kenny's plan all along haha

Osgood is a terrible color guy. He needs to stay at the intermission desk. Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk

Not game related but thought it was interesting, so I'll post it here.

#Angels trade Mike Scioscia's kid to #Cubs for Wayne Gretzky's kid. Seriously: 1B Matt Scioscia for OF Trevor Gretzky.

Didn't know Wayne's kid played baseball.

#2498508 James Neal Cross-Check to Glendening's Head [GIF] - Suspension?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 20 March 2014 - 11:09 PM

It should be, but it won't be. I love how Glendening takes it in stride like a man and Malkin acts like a pansy about it.

#2497347 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by marcaractac on 19 March 2014 - 07:25 PM

Simply put: Stop signing over-priced plugs as some consolation price for missing out on true impact players. Hopefully next season we cut some fat, use what we have in our young guys, and sign someone useful to fill important roles - a big bodied scorer and a top-4 defenseman. Looking down the line, the only UFAs that could/should be resigned are Legwand, Alfie, and Gustavsson.


Agreed on Legwand and Alfie, but not Gus. Nothing against him, but he can't stay healthy, and you'd have to think it will be time for Mrazek to be the backup starting next year. He has nothing left to prove in the AHL. It is time for him to star getting more ice time at the NHL level.
