#2549185 Malkin hit on Girardi

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 16 November 2014 - 11:47 AM

You know if it happened after only big hits I wouldn't have that much of a problem with it but as it stands now it happens after every kind of hit.

 

Agreed.  There was a time when players accepted that hockey is a tough sport and they might have a teammate get caught with a clean hard hit.  They'd just take a number and get that guy back.  Or the hitting in the game overall would increase. 

 

There were always the few star players who were protected, like Gretzky and Yzerman, but there wasn't all this fighting after clean hard hits.  The point is to separate the guy from the puck and take advantage of that.  By dropping the gloves immediately the team often negates that advantage.  The player starting a fight after a hit like that should always get an extra 2 and maybe even a 10 minute misconduct.  Especially considering it's often more of a mugging than a fight.

 

For as much as people complain about the league taking hitting out of the game, players fighting after clean hits tries to do the same thing. Hitting is part of the game.  Take a number and play on. 

 

To be clear, I'm not talking about the Wing's habit of standing around when one of their players has obviously been cheapshotted.

I love when we beat the Devils, walking the dog with a Wings sweater or hat is so awesome.

Discussion of Zetterberg's beard more thrilling than this game.

How did Weiss look?

He apparently played 8 minutes, but I don't recall seeing him.

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 23 September 2014 - 08:56 PM

how is mr weiss looking. i see he has 2 block shots not bad but 25% in faceoffs

 

is he hitting, grinding, making anything happen?

so far he has been working hard. really like the look from him tonight.

The game as a whole is pretty sloppy, so its tough to gauge exactly what kind of player he can be just yet, but he definitely is skating better than anytime last year.  He's moving well, getting open, rushing to pucks, that sort of thing.




#2531341 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Zetts on 10 July 2014 - 07:50 PM

Just re-sign Alfredsson now and call it an off-season.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Alfredsson
Franzen-Weiss-Nyquist
Abdelkader-Helm-Tatar
Cleary-Andersson-Miller
Glendening

Jurco gets buried in GR.

Yuck.

I have honestly never been more disappointed/unexcited for the Wings than this off-season.

#2520693 ECF : (5) New York Rangers vs. (4) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 15 May 2014 - 06:04 PM

This one of those series where I'm really not pulling for either team to win or lose, so you can just sit back and enjoy hockey without the stress of rooting for your team to win.
