#2300704 The Astuteness of Paul Holmgren.

Posted by RedWingsRox on 11 May 2012 - 02:17 PM

"His job is to stop pucks and help us win games," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said. "It's not Comedy Central."

Actually, the only reason why I watch the Flyers is for the comedy.

It feels so good to see Nashville lose !!!

Bettman makes special announcement, we have a buyer for the team then I hope team goes out there and just put Nashville out of their misery, win this and be done with it. Suter sweepstakes begin. Bonus if anyone can rub Weber's head into the boards, maybe Torres should have done in that last game of his.

Hard to believe, thought that Boston would pull through but kudos to Holtby.


#2295194 25 Games for Torres

Posted by RedWingsRox on 21 April 2012 - 11:34 AM

I think Matt Cooke got about 20.

Shanny was flexing his muscle, "See I can be tough!" ... But the day before, Bettman says to Shanny ... see I own Phoenix, I won't ***** and it makes you look good. We'll make Torres the poster child for bad hits.


#2295097 Babs calls out Kenny, sort of!

Posted by RedWingsRox on 21 April 2012 - 09:30 AM

Just watched the post game press. Every other sentence, Babs is sending a message to Holland. "They had 7 top 6 forwards ... we didn't have enough, ... we're not as deep as we used to be ... we're not good enough".

Thinks defence was fine - 26SOG during the season, 23 SOG in playoffs is good defence.

Only comment he might wished he had back, "I don't know any team that has 3 franchise players, Weber, Suter, Rinne" Um, how about Zetterberg, Datsyuk, and Lidstrom Mike?

"Not going in the right direction" (about 2nd round loss, 2nd round loss, 1st round loss) - good thing is that there is only one direction to go. Heaven forbid we actually have to fight to get 7th or 8th spot!

What's more disheartening, not making it into playoffs or bowing out in 5? Waited 82 games for this :(


#2292972 Luongo gone from Vancouver this summer ...

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 April 2012 - 09:06 PM

No worries, he's not coming to Detroit. We've NEVER paid that much for a goalie and I can't see that ever happening. That and Jimmy > Roberto.


#2292969 Quenneville fined $10K

Posted by RedWingsRox on 19 April 2012 - 09:02 PM

The NHL suspends Torres indefinitely which basically means they agree that the referees missed the call and it was a dirty play/hit. Go figure :!: So now Quenville is fined $10,000 for agreeing with Shanny and Dept of Player Safety.

Who the hell is this kid Holtby ... he's playing out of his mind and standing on his head !!

I don't want to be the first team eliminated ... please just win. Play with some desperation.

To Howard's defense, before he was injured, he was on pace to be Vezina nominee. I think the injury must be lingering. He has shown flashes of brilliance and really stole some games, like game 2 of this series but today, he was average and with a less than average team of forwards and defence, it ain't going to to it.

Some punks wanted to play with my ping pong table so I moved it away ... #PulledACrosby


#2288926 Shanahan reveals some details on process he will take for discipline

Posted by RedWingsRox on 16 April 2012 - 12:13 PM

Just read some excerpts from Puck Daddy, didn't listen to the audio but epic failure on Shanny's part OR the system is still corrupt and Bettman/Campbell just tried to put a new face to the old boys club. The playoffs really exposed it. The only satisfying thing is that their poster team Pittsburgh Penguins is spiraling down the toilet. Shanny's explanation on the discipline handed out so far is so terribly inconsistent. This year's playoffs will be known as the one that Shanny/the Dept of Player Safety lost it.
