#2273862 Needs to be said

I agree with OP and seriously think that we should aim for 6th. It's not that we don't want to face all the good teams to get to the SCF, if we are in 6th, we will face good teams in round 2 and Conference finals ... we want to face them as healthy as possible. Playoffs is a game of attrition, how many of your best players stay healthy till the end.

Unfortunately, I don't have very high hopes for tonight.

If we're going to be so sh*tty, let's aim for 6th spot.

Cherry kicking Burke while he is down ... classy!

Burke just blew $1 mill or more, whatever his one year extension was to his buddy Wilson. Stupid of him to give him extension before Christmas when he hasn't done anything. Having said that, there are so many ex-coaches still living on their contract pay and then get a new job. Does this mean that Carlyle he is getting paid both by Anaheim (whatever his contract was) and Leafs?

You can cause long term damage to retina depending on the class of laser pointers. I say that warrants a criminal charge.

#2265717 Post Lockout; IF Winnipeg and Forida make the playoffs

Posted by RedWingsRox on 02 March 2012 - 02:51 PM

? :blink:

Yes, the Atlanta Thashers team has made it in.

The big IF is in regards to both the Panthers and the Jets making it into the playoffs this season.

And, yes, good for the Thrashers (except for the "swept out of the first round" part).

So close. Yes, of course, on the Maple Leafs, but technically, no , as a matter of fact, on your 2nd part. Alex Trebek would not allow it. :huh:

Anyone else?

Now you're starting to be annoying.

I hate the Leafs but even I'm starting to feel sorry for them.

#2264164 Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

Posted by RedWingsRox on 27 February 2012 - 04:42 PM

Count me in with the disappointed group. For the first time we had cap space and nothing (unless you count Quincy) :angry: God knows we need help! Can expect another one or two rounds and out.

yes, Mule's playoff rep is the only reason I tolerate his regular season mediocrity, he could score 40 if he showed up every game and used his size to his advantage more, but since he does do that in the playoffs he gets a pass; Hossa on the other hand has not put up the playoff numbers to justify his contract, which is pretty much just as bad as Franzen's iirc

We should keep Franzen in GR and call him up around March to get him ready for playoffs.

#2262462 Vancouver sweeping the rug?

Posted by RedWingsRox on 25 February 2012 - 05:12 PM

OK, so I'm from Vancouver and I despise the Canucks. I think the management is putting Ballard on "LTI" so that they can free up some cap room for a late acquisition but I don't think he is seriously injured. Something looks suspicious if you ask me. He was never a favourite of AV, Gillis gave Ballard a stupid contract. This is one way to sweep him under the rug.

One reporter - Ballard injury described as "upper salary." Out indefinitely @TSNBobMcKenzie VAN put Keith Ballard on LTIR, creates $4.2M in cap space.

Looks like Ballard is experiencing 'capcussion'.

#2261826 2/23 GDT : Canucks 4 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

Posted by RedWingsRox on 23 February 2012 - 10:56 PM

Thinking back to this whole game and trying to be objective and not homer, we were lucky to be leading 3-2 with a few minutes left in the 3rd. Up until that point, we were outplayed. Having said that, if we do have a 3-2 lead with 20 secs, we got to lock it down. Definitely miss #13's defence and shootout skills.

It will be a nauseating day here tomorrow in Vancouver. But we're still #1 point wise.

Damn Damn Damn ... we were 30 secs away from winning this! This is so sickening :ranting:
