Good ... I think this is a great addition and the price we paid is good.  




#2574911 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

I'm apalled that there is no discipline by NHL.  Aren't they already being sued by ex players for concussion issues and head injuries?  This kind is not even 'hockey play' and need to seriously get this sh*t out of the game.

At one time, this board would jump in elation if Q was injured for a short term but he has matured and proven to be a reliable Dman.    




#2574393 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Yes Howie will be.  Babs pattern is to go with starter and if he falters, he will go to backup and ride him.

It's fine ... should have had 2 but got 1.  Not the end of the world.  Shake it off, tomorrow is another tough night.

The Tootoo experiment came and gone.  No roster spot just for a Mr. Tough guy .. get used to it.

#2572328 Crazy KHL hockey fight involving Cory Emmerton

Not to digress too much but speaking of the cheerleaders on the rafters ... this is way better than HBO 24/7 NHL

Anyone noticed the cheerleaders on those rafters at the end of the rink ... 




#2565842 GDT : NHL Skills Competition/60th All-Star Game

Posted by RedWingsRox on 24 January 2015 - 09:56 PM

And seriously, stop with these horrible effin go pro cameras on the refs helmets.

Half the time you can't even see the puck go in...
Its not cool.
Its annoying.

 

I get motion sickness and start feeling nauseated when they show the feed from the GoPro cam.

#2564702 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 January 2015 - 12:40 AM

roboturner ... U mad bro.  Stop already.  Mrazek plays a few good games and you want to trade Howie ... You can tell from these past few games that you want to commit to Mrazek for the next 11-12 years?  Or you'd trade him as soon as his backup puts in a few good games in a row?  

 

Do you have any idea what respect, loyalty, and class means in an organization.  If Kenny did what you suggested, no one would want to sign here ever again.

Nashville a one trick pony? Name of pony ... Rinne.


#2563909 Nashville has yet to lose 2 games in a row this season

Posted by RedWingsRox on 17 January 2015 - 03:45 PM

He was never hired mid-season to clean up a mess and get a fringe team solidly into the playoffs.

Yah, that seems to be the criteria for winning it ... or some coach for the first time who gets lucky.  Roy, MacLean ... I mean seriously, MacLean gets one before Babcock?  The body of work through the years is not a factor they take into consideration.  

 

Let's see how the most recent winners are doing:

Roy - 2nd year coaching, team in 10th place

MacLean - fired, unemployed  

Hitch - pretty steady

Bylsma - let go, unemployed

Tippet - probably going to be looking for a new job soon 

Julien, Boudreau, Vigneault - doing well.

Lindy Ruff in Dallas - strugglig a bit there

Tortorella - :lol:  :lol:  

 

At this rate, they might hand it to Capuano in NYI this year.
