#2532201 Tomas Jurco's Ridiculous New Stick Trick

Posted by FlashyG on 15 July 2014 - 09:23 PM

As talented as he is, this is what it might look like when Holland and Babs are handing out the roster spots after training camp.

#2521456 WCF: (6) California Dreamin' v (5) The Night Chicago Died

Posted by Dabura on 22 May 2014 - 06:46 PM

Watching those highlights, I wonder if there is ever a game where Queneville doesn't go berserk and act like a raging old drunk.


I wonder this every time I see him behind the bench. I think his record is 38 minutes.


Part of it is he has such an angry looking face. He even said in his presser today that he woke up today feeling angry.


Sometimes I wonder if it's all just the 'stache. It's clearly a demonic entity with a mind and will all its own.

#2520287 ECSF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (2) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 May 2014 - 08:45 PM

No way Bylsma keeps his job after this.  Most overrated coach in hockey.  


This guy took over a team that had been to the Finals before with a different coach.  Big deal, they won the Cup the following year when everything fell their way.


Since the Cup win, they've blown two separate 3-1 series leads, have lost three game 7's at home (how is that possible?), and have only been to the Conference Finals once (getting swept by Boston last year).


Bylsma needs to go.  He's wasting the primes of the two best offensive players of this generation.

Here's Nyquists WC goal against Denmark. 

Who's this Goostof Newquist cat? He's pretty good.

#2519749 Gaborik?

Posted by darkmanx on 08 May 2014 - 06:53 PM

Gaborik in the winged wheel has been a dream of mine for like 6 years now.. 


I have a feeling it will happen eventually, but probably when hes 39 years old


There are about three guys in the league that I feel would be unstoppable with Dats, and Gaborik is the only one that is actually feasible, with the others IMO being kane and crosby


Vanek ? The plays they could setup would be incredible.


Great shot - Check

Great passing - Check

High Hockey IQ and vision - Check

Net Front Presence - Check

Great shot deflector - Check

PPG player on a bad team (Buffalo) - Check

PP Specialist - Check


For everything else there is MasterCard.

#2519838 Regner: Next year could be Babcock's last

Posted by VM1138 on 09 May 2014 - 11:21 AM

I hate articles like this.  They're increasingly common.


Regner is clearly reaching for conclusions.  Nothing here indicates next year will be his last. 


What Babcock has stated in other interviews as well is that he can get a job anywhere, so he's not concerned with getting some long term big-money deal.  Only people who worry about the future of their careers do that.  He just wants to take it year by year.  That means he could be here another 10, or he could be gone next year.


Either way, nothing here supports Babcock's leaning one way or the other.  But hey, page hits, I guess.


I wrote this in another thread, but the whole coach getting stale thing doesn't really apply to Babcock anymore.  There's such a huge turnover in players that next year's team and the one after that will be almost entirely different than the ones during most of his tenure.  So it's like getting a fresh start.


Plus, Babcock loves coaching young guys and building their game.  He can do that in Detroit just as easily as anywhere else.  At least here he has competent management to work with.

#2510238 'Twas The Night Before Playoffs

Posted by Peadydog on 17 April 2014 - 03:55 PM

‘Twas The Night Before Playoffs


 ‘Twas the night before Playoffs and all through the Joe

Not a player was skating, not fast and not slow.

The jerseys were hung from the rafters with care

Stevie, Sid, Gordie, Terry, Ted, Nick and Alex were there.


The fans in Detroit were all snug in their beds,

While Stanley Cup fever danced ‘round in their heads.

Our young guns Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist you see

Would star in their dreams of what would soon be.


Next day on the ice there would be such a clatter,

That, for true fans of hockey, nothing else would matter.

Away to the arena, we fly like a flash,

(Unless we can’t get tickets, ‘cause we don’t have the cash).


The laser light show on the freshly groomed ice

Would light up the way as we welcome our guys!

Then, what to our wondering eyes should appear?

But the best of the NHL, at least so far this year.


With Z as our Captain, and now Daniel Alfredsson

Or Swedish lineup is second to none.

More rapid than eagles, the players they came,

And we whistled and shouted, and called them by name.


“Now Kindl! Now Kronwall!  Now, go, Kyle Quincey!

On Datsyuk! On DeKeyser! And, now, Luke Glendening!

Into the Playoffs!  With the best of the League!

There’s no turning back!  There will be no fatigue!”


“There’s Toman Jurco, Ryan Sproul, and Todd Bertuzzi

David Legwand!  Riley Sheahan!  It makes us all woozy!

Thanks to Petr Mrazek and Brendan Smith!

We got to this point, this team knows no quit!”


No rest for the weary, surely we’ll whelm!

Here’s Franzen! And Ericsson! And now Darren Helm!!

There’s Tootoo! and Andersson! and Jimmy in net.

Drew Miller, Landon Ferraro, the best fourth line yet!


They say we’re getting old, we know that’s not true

We simply reload and reload, that’s what we do!

With Lashoff and Abby and don’t forget Cory

Our young guys can bring it, there’ll be no worry!


As the Bruins and the Lightning and Penguins all cry,

When they meet with the Wings, and their Stanley dreams die.

As the Blackhawks do crumble and the Sharks meet with fate,

The Blues and the Wild will just have to wait.


Then, dressed up so nicely, in the best they could find,

The coaches line up, with the trainers behind.

There’s Renny, and Bill Peters, and head coach Mike Babcock

And, on the bench, The Monster, our faithful back-up!


We moved to the East

We all had some fears

Would we keep the streak alive?

Yes!  Now it’s 23 years!!


Our eyes, how they twinkle!  Our hearts are so merry!

With Redmond to comment, or maybe Don Cherry.


With a wink of his eye and a twist of his head,

Mike soon had assured us we had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word; these guys know how to win

To the Finals we go, we can do this again.


They spring to the ice, as the referees whistle,

In pursuit of the Cup they will fly like a missile.

And the fans will exclaim, whether they lose or they win,

“Go, Red Wings!  We Love You!  What a great year it’s been!”
