#2556798 Where were team-mates on the Smith headshot

Posted by Dabura on 14 December 2014 - 08:20 PM

Well considering Smith is the only player that stands up to stuff like that and he was the one that got hit he had to stand up for himself. 


Ericsson jumped Nolan when he hit Helm from behind.

Go Wings! My wedding rehearsal is today so it looks like this will be the first game of the year I miss. Hopefully last game against Florida taught them something and they come out and crush 'em tonight.

#2555885 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by derblaueClaus on 11 December 2014 - 07:39 PM

Am I the only one who thinks that a.) the sample size is much to small to have reliable stats and b.) that shootouts are more or less coin flips and therefore the whole discussion about how Howard or the team sucks in shootouts is pretty much pointless ?

Bombay did. He put Julie "The Cat" Gaffney in for Goldberg when Gunnar was shooting for Iceland. :hehe:


Damn, that's what I get for not reading all the way to the end.  I saw that post and thought for sure I'd be the first to comment lol. 


Well played.

Has anyone actually ever switched goaltenders for the shootout? 


Coach Gordon Bombay once swapped backup Julie "The Cat" Gaffney with starter Greg Goldberg because her quick glove hand provided an edge against Team Iceland sniper Gunnar Stahl, who favored shooting high glove in the shootout.

Howard falls to 0-4 in shootouts this season, making just three saves on 10 shots in skills competition




Good job NHL shootouts are the absolute worst thing in all of pro sports except for maybe the excessive use of tobacco in the MLB. 


Because if they weren’t, I’d be pretty concerned about our goaltending.

Posted by Euro_Twins on 30 October 2014 - 01:28 PM

Nyquist = Goose
Tatar = Tots
Helm = Helmer
Kronwall = Kronners
Datsyuk = Dats, Pav
Zetterberg = Hank, Z
Kindl = Amazon (Kindle)
Jurco = Jurcs "Yurks"
I love the nicknames! But agree that they fly more if you are in the actual locker room. Usage probably reflects the fact that I wish I was one of the boys (also term that is used) in the locker room/have been in the past. Sorry if they annoy others but I will definitely continue to be using them!

You forgot pasha for datsyuk, dk for dekeyser. disney.com for glendening, tinky winky for sheahan smitty for Smith and useless for kindl/quincey knees for Cleary...

We're we not doing every nickname? :)

stop calling him Mule, stop calling him Pav, stop calling him Z....jeez, these names are used so we don't have to type the entire name out. If you enjoy writing Nestrasil everytime you talk about him, go for it. I for one, do not care if people call him Nesty.
