I see you had exactly one post deleted from the Coyotes GDT that was part of a number of off-topic posts that were deleted regarding trolling/not trolling.  And the problem is?

The problem is that we moderated something. In Roboturner's perfect world, nothing on this site would get touched ever, anything that is said goes, and there are no repercussions for breaking the forums rules. 

We are going to moderate, because there are rules on this forum and it's our job to enforce them. If a GDT is going way off track after a loss and you lose a post because of the need for us to edit it, even though we at times have to remove dozens of other posts in the process that no one else seems to come here regularly and complain about, it's something you need to come to terms with. 


If this thread is to remain open solely for Roboturner to continue to revert back to in the event that we have to moderate something just to complain about, I don't see a constructive reason to leave it open at all. If you crave and explanation that badly, just let us know and we can submit formal warnings instead of simply removing the content, and in your warning you can have a detailed description of why it was moderated. 


So in response to "I see you guys are back to deleting my posts, meanwhile the "in" clique can post whatever the hell they want", my response is stop replying and contributing to off topic discussions that progress the derailing of threads and you won't have to worry about your posts being removed. We have full documentation of everything removed and it passes through Matt also, so instead of acting like the victim like we are pinpointing your individual post and removing it while leaving the rest up in the thread, state more factual information that isn't directed at bashing the moderation staff at every opportunity and state the truth that all the content is gone, including yours, that set that particular GDT off track.

Mad respect to Dave Cameron for standing up and speaking out, I'd be pissed off too over the Stone injury. I hope the Sens make it painful.

Whoever pulls a chara on Subban, Emelin, Pacioretty, Galchenyuk well be my playoff hero. Go get them senators!

Subban is a punk that needs to be put down period. He gets away with way too much. 


Kip the love that you show for a cheap shot artist like Subban has me a bit confused when we all know you hate fighting and hitting so much. I really don't get it. I think Neal should go out there and at take Subban out for the rest of the series. 


What were you saying when Drapes got taken out by Detroit Enemy #1?

Anybody remember this?  Not sure Ottawa has a leg to stand on here.  Quit acting like a bunch of ******* and play hockey. 


Looks like a hit to someone who dropped their head down....Doesn't compare at all to all the slashes,crosschecks,slew foots that Subban has gotten away with.

#2593160 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by toby91_ca on 14 April 2015 - 10:50 AM

Personally I don't think it makes sense to look at the regular season and judge whether it was a success or a failure.  If it makes sense to do so, it probably means the team isn't very good at all (one that would be very happy just to make the playoffs = success).


Here's how I'd judge the season after it is finished:


Success - make it past 1st round


Neither - lose in 1st round


Failure - miss playoffs


So far though, they look to be exceeding expectations and well positioned to have a successful season.  We'll see if the regular season results are indicative of how good the team really is.

Before the season: Success

At the trade deadline: Disappointing

This is the first time I can remember that I'm not optimistic about the playoffs. I just don't see us making it out of the first round this time. I hope I'm wrong.

#2589979 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by krsmith17 on 07 April 2015 - 10:16 AM

I may be in the minority here but I'm going for Ottawa to beat Pittsburgh in regulation tonight, as long as we can pull of a big win ourselves. Bottom line is, we hold our own fate, and as long as we can pull of two big W's in the remaining 3 games, we're in (and I'm confident we can do that). F*** Pittsburgh, I'd much rather see Ottawa get in over them. Go Sens!

I know this could backfire but wouldn't it be great to have the senators get points and push the bruins or penguins out? I would much rather have them make the playoffs

#2589830 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by kipwinger on 06 April 2015 - 12:22 PM

The "only one Cup" argument is pretty hilarious.  Only one??  What a loser!  Then there's the small detail of getting two different teams to game 7 of the Cup finals.


If someone were to rate Quenneville's 11-year career in 2008, they likely wouldn't consider him among the best in the league.  So did he suddenly become a great coach in 2009?  Same goes for Sutter.


It takes the right coach coming to the right team at the right time.  Babcock is absolutely among the best in the league.  Sutter, Quenneville, Trotz, maybe Tippet also belong in that conversation. You could probably make a case for Alain Vigneault since he got his team to the finals twice, though I can't stand him.  I liked Bylsma but then that team became such a defensive trainwreck I wondered what was going on there.


There's really no way to compare which coach is absolutely better given all the variables involved.  I can understand thinking it's time for Babs to move on because sometimes you need fresh blood.  But thinking he's a bad coach is just silly.


I don't think anybody EVER said Babcock was a bad coach.  It's just a straw man argument that guys like you use to defend him whenever he's criticized.  Because if we don't think he's the best coach in hockey, then we must automatically think he's bad.  Of course.

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 April 2015 - 08:50 PM

2-2 in Ott-Tor



...if Wings miss the playoffs, the team needs to dump all the dead weight.  It's been the worst stretch since 89-90 and it's not like the team was battling to make the playoffs and came up short, they were tied for 1st overall just two months ago at one point, they've been playing like s*** since.  I think I'd be a bit happier if they were out of the picture all year long, then just barely missed them, rather than whats happening right now...


The D needs a shot of roids, there is no way Kindl, Quincey, Ericsson can be on this team next season (sadly they will.)  It's really time for Holland to think about trading a 1st round pick and (even though I don't like it) one of his top prospects in order to get a legit #1 defender.  I think he should trade for that guy, re-sign Zidz and even look for a UFA to make this D #1 in the NHL. If it means trading one of the prized defenders in GR, so be it.


I also agree Pav and Z need to be on the same line.  Sheahan is well talented enough to be a 2nd line center.  Helm has been doing fine in the top 6, but he is excellent in the bottom 6. Do you want him to do fine or excellent? I know it worked for Abby, but this could be a fluke year for him. If not, then great, he can stay in the top 6.  I think Jurco (if not traded) should also be a top 6 forward along with Pulk.  Sure that is too many top 6 guys, but like I said, Helm and even Abby can really take control of the bottom 6.  But honestly, for the first time in a while, there are just too many forwards that can playt in the top 6.  Z, Pav, Tatar, Nyquist, Pulk, Jurco, Sheahan, Cole (if re-signed,) Abby, hell even Weiss (but I assume he will be traded to a team of his choice.) That is why I do believe the focus MUST, MUST be on the D.  Q, K, E are ALL no better than a #4 guy (barely.)  We need a #1 and a #3/#4. Big changes I know, but no longer does this team need "tweaks." It needs changes...

#2589542 Do Red Wings fans deserve better?

Posted by Redwings 1926 on 05 April 2015 - 06:17 PM


Basically, I believe most couldn't care less about their fans, in general. I'm sure they are glad to have fans, but they don't believe the fans effect the outcome of a game or a season. They certainly wouldn't know, or care, if their entire fanbase was transplanted by other people. I'm a fan of the Detroit Red Wings...I have an entire room dedicated to them, with an entire whack of Gordie Howe and Steve Yzerman stuff. Not one Red Wing has a room dedicated to me, nor one dedicated to fans in general. I'm okay with all of this, by the way...it's the order of things. I agree with the rest of what you said, too.

Claude Lemieux seemed to care what my dad thought of him.


A friend of my dad's had season tickets to the Florida Panthers, 1st row, right beside the visitor's bench. Anyway, one night in 2000, he let us have them. It was a game against the Devils on  a night when Martin Brodeur was not playing, so we got to sit next to him the whole night listening to him yelling at his teammates from the bench. By the second intermission, my dad was good and lathered up and as the Devils were heading to the locker room, he sees Lemieux, and yells "Hey!! My boy Darren McCarty is gonna kick your ass!! To our astonishment, Lemieux stops and bends down to look into the glass and says what sounded like "haw?" And my dad yelled again "My boy Darren McCarty is gonna kick your ass!!" to which Lemieux replied softly "Bring him on, he's probably at home banging your wife." A few seconds later, then Devils coach Larry Robinson walked up behind, placed his hand on Claude's shoulder, and they headed off to the locker room. I was only 16 at the time, but it was a entertaining night. That night on the ride home, I swear he must have called half the people in his phone. He called my grandfather at 11pm laughing hysterically and said "Hey dad, guess who I got into a fight with tonight!!"


That said, I think most do care what the fans think, to a degree, and suspect that's part of the reason why Detroit was such an attractive destination for free agents all of those years, the good teams, and the rabid fan support, appreciation. No one wants to play in front of empty seats, or indifferent fans.

Why is Minnie trying so hard, they can't move up on the seeding?
Just lay over and rest your players already!

They probably are coasting. We are just this bad.

#2588626 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by gcom007 on 02 April 2015 - 10:48 PM


As I said in another thread, when Zetterberg plays like crap, people always blame it on his back injury.  When he plays well, the back is miraculously cured.  


He has too much immunity here.  He's playing uninspired and doing a poor job of leading by example.  


Z is a shell of his former self, that's just the reality. To suggest he's not trying though I think is absurd. Given all that he's gone through, he's just not going to be able to be the player he was before his ongoing back issues really dug their claws into him. It's sad, it's unfortunate, it flat out sucks, but I can't run off and drop the "he's playing uninspired and doing a poor job of leading by example." I would bet he's doing all he can, but I would bet that just isn't close to what we're used to from him, and it likely never will be again. I don't like it, I wish it were different, but I'm not going to sit here and s*** on the guy. There's way too many guys on this team who are in far better shape who aren't kicking into another gear. That's the problem right now.
