#2605826 Call Out the NHL on BS

Posted by roboturner on 03 May 2015 - 10:30 PM

I don't understand the reason..

I think the reason was that they wanted the home team fans to see the home team colors.

 

But I think the other way was better. You already know you're own teams colors so every home game you would get to see a different color come in.

Like how most or all MLB teams home jersey's have the team logos on them, but when they are on the road the jersey's have their home city written on it.

 

But then again I like how NFL's home team wears the colors, but that might just be cuz I'm a packers fan and the green jersey feels a little more 'home' because it matches the super green grass at NFL stadiums. It always seems weird when they wear the whites or the blue throwback at Lambeau




#2605814 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

Posted by roboturner on 03 May 2015 - 10:06 PM

I think he was just talking about value.
Like what we could actually get for them in the trade market, not that we should trade player a or player b.

Yeah I got that, But in order to cash in on that value, you have to actually be willing to let go of the player.

 

Like I guess what I'm saying is, Crosby has enormous trade value. But if you are unwilling to actually trade him, his trade value is effectively zero. It only becomes actual value when you are willing to sell it. Does that make sense? haha




#2605243 should mrazek get #1 tag next season

 Hell, Mrazek is young, cheap, and has shown a lot this year. He'd bring a better return than Howard, and probably wouldn't hurt us long-term nearly as much as some might think.

:shock: :eh: :confused: :glare: :shocking:




#2601570 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

Posted by roboturner on 27 April 2015 - 03:43 PM

For the love of god, stop trying to start s*** and enjoy the playoff experiance.

Not trying to start s*** and I am indeed enjoying the playoff experience.

 

Just think it's funny in hindsight that people were actually saying that. 

 

 

 

Exactly. I love me some Mrazek, but no one's done jack squat yet. Last time I checked, the series wasn't over.

Well i guess if two shutouts is equal to jack squat that statement would be accurate. The series isn't over, but I wasn't expecting anything these playoffs so I'm looking at a 3-2 series lead and two shutouts of the best offensive team in the league pretty optimistically. Sorry...




#2593879 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

Posted by roboturner on 16 April 2015 - 12:45 PM

 

For the third time, I never said Yzerman created this policy. What I said was if this policy was NOT created by the owner or team president, I'm sure with his standing in the organization, Yzerman would have veto power.

 

Also, if my argument was that Yzerman created it (which is wasn't), telling me that Tony from the Lightning told you otherwise is NOT proof LOL!
 

What makes you think a general manager would have veto power over a teams ticket sales?




#2593123 Why so negative?

Posted by roboturner on 14 April 2015 - 09:03 AM

The goal of a prediction isn't to be overly optimistic. The goal of a prediction is to be right about the outcome.

 

I'm not saying the Wings can't pull this off, because I think they can. But given the teams recent struggles, the most probable outcome is that the Wings lose the series. 




#2592918 Babcock: Petr Mrazek is starting Game 1

HA oh man that pic!

Howie has nobody to blame but himself. He just hasn't been able to get it done.

That said I don't mind both of them getting some starts in the playoffs.

God I hope the Pens lose.




#2591876 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by roboturner on 09 April 2015 - 11:53 PM

Babs says he is going to have a beer and decide who starts the last game...

 

Is there any chance he goes with Mrazek in the playoffs?

 

The two main differences between Petr and Jimmy right now seem to be puck-handling (in favor of petr) and experience (in favor of jimmy).

 

It was nice to see Jimmy playing so well the other night and in the shootout. He seemed to be getting his confidence back, and just in time. I thought he would have been the obvious choice. But now, who knows.

 

If the knock against Petr is a lack of experience, well, there is only one way to change that. And I think his puck-handling would be a huge asset in the playoffs.

I just prefer to discuss hockey and the red Wings in a more constructive light with members who know what they are talking about. This forum, sadly, has jumped the shark.

Well I'm honored to be basking in your omnipotent knowledge of the game :sarcasm:

 

What is it with you guys?

 

I agree that playing the game can help people learn and understand it and it probably is the best way to do it. But it's not unimaginable that somebody could learn and understand it from watching it. In fact, professional athletes do this as well all the time. It's called film study!

 

You don't have to have played past Juniors to know bad positioning or poor outlet passes or tipped goals ect...Get over yourselves.

REALLY? How has this turned into a bashing Howard thing?! That guy has played his a** off for us this game and he gives up a bad goal on a 5 on 3 and all of a sudden this is all his fault? Grow the eff up. You're blind if you think he's the reason we're tied. God. The Howard hate around here has just gotten to be ridiculous. How about our PP eh?

You were saying???

When was the last time someone scored a goal without a helmet? I wanna see that happen. A guy can dream.
