#2673812 Making a move with AUTHORITY!

Goaltending is not our issue.


Goaltending is not our ONLY issue.


#2673539 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 25 April 2016 - 02:19 PM

I predict a nine year contract, 5.5 million per year, then he'll go back to Russia after 3 years and take his 11 point seasons with him.

Maybe I'm wrong...


#2673143 Potentially new GMs

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 23 April 2016 - 07:40 AM

Yzerman? Admittedly, I don't know enough about potential GMs to make an informed decision. I just know that Yzerman is a demi-god and has that certain, as the French say, I don't know what.


#2670978 Tampa radio host's harsh words for DET fans/players

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 19 April 2016 - 04:24 PM

Well... Abdelkader did look like a chump. At least drop the gloves and give him a big hug or throw him on the ground rather than look at the ref, shrug your shoulders and look like a giant vageen. That and someone throwing beer at the player? Dick move. That is the definition of classless and it's also a sin to waste a $15 USD beer like that. If you did that in Canada your buddy standing next to you jersey's you, give you a beat down, makes you walk home and drinks any roadie's you left in the car.


Maybe it isn't accurate, but I read that Abby's hand was taped up from the beat down he put on Blunder. If it is, it's an automatic suspension.

1/2 A Drew Miller on the PK,


That's Brad Richards you're talking about.


#2662406 2016 Playoffs % chances (part II)

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 27 March 2016 - 09:58 AM

I didn't see the game last night, but a 7-2 loss pretty much speaks for itself. At this point, I don't really care if they make the playoffs because they're going to suck anyway. This team needs a makeover like a Kardashian needs attention. I don't care which side of the bench gets shaken up, maybe both need it, but laziness and entitlement are some big issues here.


#2662004 2016 Playoffs % chances (part II)

Just outta curiosity...am I the only one that sees Smith as a pretty big asset on this push for a playoff appearance? He's picked up his game and he's our most physical player right now. I was on the fence about him for a while, but I'm really liking what I see.


#2656861 Uh oh... Coreau called up... Mrazek injured?

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 01 March 2016 - 02:03 PM

I'd like to congratulate Coreau on a job well done...he let in no goals.

Can we just sign his beard?


#2652118 9 (NINE!) player trade involving Phanuef

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 11 February 2016 - 05:23 PM

 
True, they spend top $ for mid level talent.

 
He may do what a lot of hockey players do, play in Toronto at the end of his career.


I'm not sure if they play in Toronto at the end of their careers or If playing in Toronto ended their careers. It's a toss up.


#2652043 The Petr Mrazek Appreciation Thread

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 11 February 2016 - 08:10 AM

OK so if you were at the opposite end and couldn't see how do you know he just "let one in"?

The final score was 3-1...hence, just one.

This thread is bang on, topic wise. Mrazek has been fantastic for this team and I'm glad he's wearing the winged wheel. Leave Big E alone. I've always called him Errorson, but that's for a different thread. Three cheers for Mrazek!


#2651415 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 07 February 2016 - 09:40 PM

 
Really?  I think that's a bit much


Really. I was hoping for 40. I think the fact that the linesman wasn't injures is a miracle of so sort. Players get get from less than that hit. That red had no expectation of being hit like that. I was hoping for 40 but would not have complained had he been kicked out of the league.

Still better than Nickelback.


#2616884 OT Changes

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 27 June 2015 - 08:09 AM

Goalie vs goalie.

But the goalies have to play from the top of the circles, and elastic bumpers will be added in various spots five off the boards at the hash marks, blue lines, and red lines.
Get it done.

 

And they have to be moved by long metal rods attached to their backs and that extend out through the boards.




#2615879 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 24 June 2015 - 08:50 AM

 

I'm actually glad to hear (or read) that other people feel this way too.  It was more exciting, the players were better, the teams were better.  Its kind of amazing to me that the Stanley Cup final ratings are so high these past few years considering, as a hockey obsessed maniac myself, I could care less who was in it or who won these past few years.  I wonder if its because the last 5 years of finals have been played in mostly big cities (Chicago, Philly, NY/NJ, Boston and LA).

 

I think a lot of people don't realize how different the game is. I really miss the way hockey was played back then.

 

As for the ratings, I'm pretty sure you've touched on a large part of it. It wouldn't surprise me to see that future SC finals will be played in predetermined arenas, a la the NFL. Everything seems to be geared toward ratings and growing the fan base.

 

But since this is a thread about Phaneuf...he sucks.
