#2606746 ECSF: Tampa Bay Crying Coopers vs. Montreal Complaining Canadiens

Posted by kipwinger on 08 May 2015 - 12:57 PM

Fair enough. I tend to agree with your sentiment. But it's still May and I'm still pissed about the outcome of our series. That's why I go with hate toward him right now. That and I think he's a punk. But yes, that grit or toughness or "compete level" (a term I think is such a lame cliche) that Johnson has is something I'd like to have seen from Gus or Tatar. Hell, if either of them had shown a little of that the Wings would've finished the series in game 5.

 

I don't think the difference between Johnson and Tatar/Nyquist was "toughness, grit, or compete level".  I think, to a large extent, it was because Tyler Johnson was on the ice a lot more than Nyquist and Tatar were.  He averaged 18:51 in ice time per game, while Tatar and Nyquist were 15:56 and 15:50 respectively. 

 

Also, our powerplay wasn't very good and that affected their production totals as well.

Subban threw Johnson down to the ice after a check on the boards in last night's game. Nobody really saw it or commented on it, and the crowd got sort of mad. I enjoyed seeing it.

Agreed. I f****ing hate Johnson. I mean, it's not Patrick Kane-type hate. Not by a long shot. But I'd love to see him get lined up and dropped by some of the Caps.

I too hate this small piece of s***.
Remember him going after Miller and giving him pretty nasty facewash with his gloves. He did it knwoing Miller face was cut open a couple weeks ago.

I'd love to see Brian McGrattan do unpleasant things to that punk in a closet.

So far this season? I'm going to go with a healthy Bert. 




#2386625 4/18 NHL GDT

Good point but it's not ONLY last night. That Jimmy Howard f*** up pretty much summed up the whole season. Things just didn't go our way from day one. Injuries and just sloppy play all around. I'm not counting them out of the playoffs yet. Hopefully they make it and whatever happens after that is up to them. Just hurts me to see players like Zetterberg and Datsyuk not as effective as they used to be.

 

Dats and Zetterberg still have the ability to dominate any game, the problem is their line mates suck.

Other than Babcock, is there anybody that will actually defend Cleary?

#2308084 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by arag on 19 June 2012 - 02:49 PM

Here is a decent offer for Hudler. Dear Jiri. Thank you for being a Red Wing for such a annoyingly long time. We have decided to move forward and our offer is this.
Get the f*** out !
