#2295192 25 Games for Torres

Posted by Red Crazy on 21 April 2012 - 11:33 AM

That must have included 5 games that were Webers? I have seen much worse in these playoffs so I would say a bit harsh. 10 would have been right and I hate Torres. Ashams was way worse I think.


#2286234 Predators fans boo Zetterberg

Posted by Red Crazy on 14 April 2012 - 08:38 AM

Vince Gill sang some song between the first and second called Bertuzzi's a sissy. Then the crowd was booing Z? I think they might be giving Canuck fans a run for their money at being the worst fans in the league. Vince Gill calling someone a sissy seems ironic.


#2279869 Wings meet Preds in First Round

Posted by Red Crazy on 07 April 2012 - 03:41 PM

The Wings CAN beat the Preds. But they will have to play with lots of heart and lots of effort. ( which has been an issue most of the season ) The Wings need to come out with all their guns blazing in game one because if the Preds get the jump I think it will be over in 5. Win it all for Lidstrom boys!


#2270031 Call the team out

Posted by Red Crazy on 14 March 2012 - 08:02 AM

Is anyone else sick of reading Babcock's post game comments? " I thought we were good for 2 min in the second, we didn't start on time, they played good, we only had one line playing" etc. I wish that he would call this team out or at least those who are simply collecting cheques and not giving a crap. Forget the PP. This team does not compete on a nightly basis and that is becoming a huge problem. Have you ever watched a Wings game and had a pretty good idea what the outcome will be 5 min in? Mike Babcock is a great coach but he needs to inspire this team. Say what you want about Ken Hitchcock but the Blues are playing inspired hockey right now and that is a lot to do with coaching. Getting the boys all back healthy will be a big help but this team has been lacking drive all season. So I think its the coaches job to turn this around now or face a very early playoff exit.


#2267274 What do you think needs to be done to fix the PP/PK

Posted by Red Crazy on 06 March 2012 - 07:01 PM

The Power Play is aabout as predictable as the sun coming up each day. That fallowed by the fact when they do get it past the wall of defenders at the blue line our wingers usually lose the battle in the corners. The big shot from the point fallowed by the Homer tip in, is getting old. Every team in the league knows this is the plan. So what needs to happen to fix it? I think Babcock and co. need to come up with a new system or new style of attack on the PP. We need a Brett Hull looking for open ice for a big shot from the circles as well as going to the point. The best PP is the ablility of having lots of options. Shoot the freeking puck would be a start.


#2264329 Columbus GM Reveals Nash Demanded Trade

Posted by Red Crazy on 27 February 2012 - 09:20 PM

What an absolutely large mistake in revealing that he asked to be traded. What good could it possibly do? Nash, who seems to be a classy guy, is going to play like he always does, but now he probably gets boo'ed in his own barn. Talk about a guy that is going to be counting down the games til the end of this season and chapter in his career.

I look forward to the day Howson loses his job.

A day, maybe two days after Scott Arniel was let go, he was on the nhl xm channel. He was bummed he was out of a job. But he sounded almost relieved to be out from under the stress of that organization. He almost sounded baffled to the degree that, that organization was that poorly managed and ran.

Instead of getting rid of Hitch or Arniel, they should of gotten rid of Howson!

I agree but demanding trade then giving a short list of teams that you would accept a trade to and expecting the GM to take all the heat from the fans and media because they think it was his idea is a bit much to ask for.

I like Nash but come on. Do I blame him? No but CBJ need to get a boat load for him and he is handcuffing them. Bad situation


#2263919 Johan Franzen Depreciation

Posted by Red Crazy on 27 February 2012 - 02:58 PM

Mule does not compete and that is getting to be a huge problem for the Wings. If all he provides is a few goals that are usually gifts then he is replaceable for a player that may not score more but that brings more to the table.

Don't hold your breath.

Wow. Awesome read thanks for posting.


#2262013 Atlanta Thrashers move to Winnipeg

Posted by Red Crazy on 24 February 2012 - 09:15 AM

All copies of Bettman's newspapers have had the sports section removed today. His thinking about revenues lost makes him extra irritable.

LOL, I would love to know at the end of the year how much money the Jets have sold worth of mechandise! It is everywhere in Manitoba, and everywhere you go somebody has something Jets on! Its great for the City and great for hockey!


#2261817 2/23 GDT : Canucks 4 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

Franzen being on the ice with the net empty in a big game, brings back bad memories.

But he was on the ice because that line iced (supposedly) the puck.

I am not 100 percent sure but I think Babs put his line out a few seconds before the icing.

Quincy looks like a huge upgrade, he may teach Big E some defense with any luck! Ken Holland needs to find 5 more Helms before Monday.

Bad call on the icing. But why the hell was Franzen on the ice with a minute to go? We only have another 11 years of his lazy ass play. Wait until Mr.clutch doesn't show up for the playoffs then what?

Franzen on the ice with a minute to go?????? Captain dependable. Might want to watch the point buddy


#2261426 2/23 GDT : Canucks 4 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

Posted by Red Crazy on 23 February 2012 - 09:23 PM

Brown is exactly the type of player the Wings need. This game is showing that we are weak down low and are in desperate need of players that will hammer other teams dmen. This team has enough tools to make a good run in the playoffs but we are still not hard enough to play against. Brown for what ever it takes to get him.


#2259331 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

Posted by Red Crazy on 20 February 2012 - 01:08 PM

It's a big game no doubt. I think that it will be used by Babcock as a measure to see where his teams at. He will for sure have this game circled on his calander.
