I say we go for the Heater reclamation project. 50 in 15?

#2485932 USA-Canada Thread

Posted by FlashyG on 21 February 2014 - 03:19 PM





It was a great game, and until that final horn blew I was convinced USA was going to tie it. 


Really impressed by Carlson and Quick in todays game. 


Hope you guys take the photoshops in good fun...I'll happily do more at Canada's expense vs Sweden.

Wings need a solid dman. Tonight was exhibit A again. We don't need anymore firepower unless you want to start winning games 8-5. 

#2480404 The NHL reffing affecting the game

Posted by Guest on 02 February 2014 - 04:13 PM

I don't know what the call on Smith was, but it seemed more like interference than a trip.  It could have gone either way, and I would have preferred that it wasn't called being in OT an being a Wings fan, but it was.  It didn't give the Caps the game.  The failure of the Wings PK gave them the game.    A PP isn't or shouldn't be an automatic goal.  We know it sure wouldn't have been if the Wings got the PP.


Every fan of every sport thinks their sport has horrible officiating.  When you have humans making the calls with a split second to make a decision, things aren't always going to get called the way they maybe should. I think the fans are more biased than the officials which usually leads to the feeling that officiating is soooo terrible.

There's no crying in hockey and I certainly don't believe in any referee bias. They miss things and sometimes let things go, but I don't believe it's based on bias.

Smith was called in OT because his trip directly led to (or would have led to) a Wings scoring chance.

You don't have to like it.

Am I missing something, that wasn't a trip?

Holland won't make a trade, you guys should know that by now.

#2469194 Howard on U.S. Olympic Roster

Posted by Yzermania on 31 December 2013 - 03:19 PM

He should say thanks but no thanks and get his s*** together for the team that signs his pay checks.

#2468385 Blockbuster deal?

Howard is amazing for most of his career, has a bad stretch of games, and now people want his head. Unbelievable.

#2466135 Tom Wilson Hit on Brayden Schenn

No concussion, just neck strain. Tough kid

Of course he's tough….he was a Brandon Wheat King!   :nhl_crach:   The WHL toughens kids up and apparently gives them thick skin in their head region as well.  Hope he gets better soon, always been a big fan of his.

#2466504 Babcock's Job?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 20 December 2013 - 12:46 PM

Others have already pointed out the sound evidence that Babcock is one of if not the best coaches in the league.  And that's what it comes down to for me.  In terms of replacing him, I don't think there's a clear candidate that's better. 


Holland has been the most disappointing these last few seasons, not Babcock. 

#2465283 Can't remember the last time we were this pathetic

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 16 December 2013 - 04:10 PM

the reason why we suck is cause we got so many injuries is totally bogus ... in october 9 out of 13 games we played we scored 2 goals or fewer , besides helm we were healthy 


we improved a bit in november but lost 7 in a row and now  we just lost 6 of 7 and every game this month so far minus the blown lead vs the flyers we scored less than 2 goals


these team has way too many 4th line players playing the same style 



im not saying we need enforcers but if we got a few guys whod just go around and hit the crap out of guys our team would look alot better than it does now

#2453738 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

Posted by The Greek on 14 November 2013 - 06:45 PM

According to Ted Kulfan, Eaves found out he had been waived from reporters. If true that really sucks.

If true, then I'm ashamed to be. a wings fan. These are people they're dealing with. Once Kenny made the decision, he should have called eaves before filing the paperwork or whatever formality puts it into motion.
