#2491377 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 05 March 2014 - 09:00 PM

I didn't bother to read 34 pages of what I'm sure is bitching but I'm fine with this. With the injury bug biting us again, this could help stop the bleeding. Everyone wants Kenny to make a trade but they never want to give up any prospects. Jarnkrok could turn out to be nothing or a star. We don't know and neither do the Preds. That's how trades work. It's a gamble but as of today it helps the Wings and I would rather make the playoffs than miss them because we didn't make a move with our plethora of prospects.

Wow what a period so far. A lot of hockey to go though and I've seen enough of this team to know it's not over yet.

Quincey and not Abs? Dafuq?

Wrong. You dont have to move if youve established that ice. Smith was moving to prevent a defender from coming out and challenging Kindl thus opening up a lane to goal. Smith knew what he was doing. He went out of his way to get in the way and set a pick. Textbook interference/tripping since Smith got him with his stick. 


Smith didn't move his stick. The Washington player stepped on it which isn't a penalty by rule. It's not a penalty and was only called because they missed what could have been called on Ovechkin.


I'm glad you know what each payer is thinking while they play, that must be quite the gift.

By rules in that instance no contact is allowed. Smith has to know any contact in that situation will send him to the box. Refs will always put a team on the powerplay over letting a call go that directly leads to a game winning chance. Has always been that way. Why is anyone surprised by it?

You couldn't be more wrong. You're entitled to your ice. You don't have to move for anyone. 

#2477124 Turning point!?!?!

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 25 January 2014 - 04:42 PM


Wrong. A turning point IS one game. It is just the games following the Chicago win that determines if said game was a turning point or not. If the team does continue to win now, then we can look back and say that game VS Chicago was the turning point. Not an entire winning streak. Going on a good run would be part of the whole turn around, however. 


Yes this is correct. A streak isn't a turning point.The streak defines the turning point. I haven't really read any of this thread but to be honest that fluke goal against LA would be my turning point so far this season. If they can keep this consistent play up and slowly creep up the standings, it has to be the turning point. Did I say turning point enough?

Going to the game tonight. I'm 0-2 this season so hopefully the 3rd time is the charm.  :drunk:

Howard sucks balls in the shootout, for sure.  But, he did earn a win in regulation today.  It isn't his fault the refs botched the call that made the difference.


That argument is so ridiculous. Who says we score those two goals if we get that first one that was called off? Everything would be different.

Always good to hear the Penguins announcers down on the team even if it's just preseason.

Wooo! I hope Tatar pots one and makes it so there is no way we trade him or waive him or whatever over the course of this preseason. Go Wings!

#2427799 Matt Cooke Signs with the Wild

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 05 July 2013 - 09:36 PM

I now hate the Pens a little less and the Wild a little more.


Meh. Just the Wild a little more for me lol.

#2427775 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Mikey Likes it!


Probably more like this.




#2427417 Dan Cleary Watch

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 05 July 2013 - 03:52 PM


Probably because he's not as bad as a lot of people here make him out to be. 


He put up 9 goals and 15 points in 48 games and 10 points in 14 playoff games.  There's no questioning his compete level, toughness and heart. That can still help a lot of teams.  It's just a matter of his health and what role you want him to play.




If the price is right I wouldn't mind him back. But anything over like 2.5 mil would be an over payment imo.
